New Poll!


Thanks to everyone who participated in our poll and survey for the past few weeks! All of your feedback was very helpful.

We have a new poll up on the sidebar >>>
It has to do with translation of honorifics. It's a very interesting topic, and we would appreciate your participation!

--------------------------------------------------------

If anyone is interested in the results of the previous poll and survey, you can find them here:

Poll on longer/shorter release time:
Longer Release Time with little/no typos and better quality raw and subs!

Survey on subbing preference:
Literal Translation!

Please realize that although the majority wants a literal translation, sometimes a literal translation makes it difficult to understand the story, plot, and subs. If this is ever the case, BeTheMan holds the right to use an adapted translation (second place for the survey) rather than a literal translation. We promise this will make your B-Daman eS experience much better in the long run!

We will be using your responses to further develop the way we release our videos and subbing methods. So please take part in our new poll so we can continue to grow as a subgroup!

Sincerely,
BeTheMan

Welcome to www.BeTheManFS.com~


Thanks to all of everyone's support, we decided to go ahead and get a domain for our website. In case you haven't realized, you are currently looking at bethemanfs.com! We are so proud to have met so many nice B-Dafans, and we hope you continue to support us as we go through B-Daman eS!

Let us know if you have any feedback, either here or on our feedback tab~


And just an update on episode three: we have started translating it already. We had a busy week, so there was a delay in starting the translation. But we have finally started, and it should be completed soon!

Check back often for any updates on B-Daman eS episode three!

Sincerely,
BeTheMan

Possible Release on Friday. Maybe. Just Maybe.


Hi everyone~

This week was a bit hectic, so it looks like B-Daman eS episode 2 will be released sometime this weekend (possibly Friday if D NES and Skypi translate like madmen and suppress any bodily functions and hunger pains).

Thanks to D NES's diligent studying, the subs in this episode have improved since episode one! But because we started with a new program, D NES had to take some time away from translating in order to learn how to use it. Skypi also had to take some time away from translating in order to study for an exam (which was today, and was easy as pie).

The episode also has a lot of technical explanations, so that was taking us a while to get through. However, we've gotten through the worst and D NES and Skypi are back to having oodles of translating time!

Thank you for being so patient as we learn the rules of fansubs, and thank you for all your suggestions and help! We truly appreciate all of your kindness and support ^-^

Check back on Friday for a possible early release! Optimism is key!

Sincerely,
BeTheMan

B-Daman eS Episode 2 Update


Typesetting has been done, it took a bit longer than usual, but we will try and have the episode out before the weekend. To anyone who is interested, we picked up a new subbing program that we’ve heard good things about. A few of you actually recommended it to us! So D NES has been learning all week how to use it effectively, in order to provide the best quality subs to B-Dafans. 


We have also found a new raw provider, who has been very kind to us and has answered our many questions. We promise that the next episode we release will be of great quality and subs! So please check back to see who our mystery raw provider is, and whose name will be revealed when we release the episode!

And a quick reminder, if anyone hasn’t done the One-Question Super Short Awesome Survey in the previous post, right now we’re tied at Literal translation and Adapted translation. The next vote could be the tiebreaker, so more participants would be appreciated!

Here's the link to the One-Question Super Short Awesome Survey!

Which is better? Short Subs VS Long Subs


Thank you for all the feedback everyone has been giving! It's been extremely helpful in perfecting our techniques!

We've been getting some suggestions and requests about the length of the subs for future episodes. There have been a few people already who have asked if there's any way we can try to shorten the length of the sentences since sometimes they tend to wrap around the screen (we are very aware of how long some of the sentences were, and we're sorry! We were trying to keep it short, while still using all the key words said in the Japanese version, but it still ended up being a bit long).

So we wanted to remind everyone that we still have a survey up, asking about translation preferences (loose translation verses literal translations; short subs verses long subs) and we'd like as many people as possible to participate in it! It's only one question (you're welcome!), multiple choice, and it really would allow us to figure out which method the majority of B-Dafans prefers for future episodes.

Little interesting fact: Skypi is a certified ethical researcher! Because of this, Skypi and D NES have made sure the site being used for the survey is both safe and effective. The survey requires a password, "BeTheManFS" and is case-sensitive, so make sure you type it exactly as it is written.

One-Question Super Short Awesome Survey!

We really want to know everyone's preferences so that we can try to sub B-Daman eS (and eventually the original B-Daman) as best as possible. We want everyone to enjoy the episodes to the fullest! So give your opinion, and help BeTheMan become a great subgroup!

Sincerely,
BeTheMan

Delay in B-Daman eS Raw Release


We were planning on starting episode two today, but the raw still isn't out yet. D NES and Skypi will start subbing the second the raw is released~ But until then, please be patient!

On another note, we're really grateful to all the B-Daman fans who have been showing their appreciation for our subs. Thank you so much for letting us know how you feel. It truly is a powerful motivation when we hear from the people we are subbing for. So thank you to everyone who has sent us messages, emails, and comments on our sites. And thank you to the fans who have quietly supported us from their computers too! It makes us happy to see the download count for the first episode we subbed go up every day.

Please continue to support us! We will continue to do our best to provide everyone with the B-Daman they deserve to see subbed!

Sincerely,
BeTheMan

BeTheMan to Sub ALL of B-Daman and B-Daman eS


There have been some questions about whether we're going to sub the whole season of Cross Fight B-Daman eS.

We Are! ^-^ (Get it? It's a One Piece reference~)

When we released the first episode, we decided that if people enjoyed it, we would continue to sub the rest of the episodes. Good News it's been off to a good start! So it looks like we're going to stick with it. :)

There have also been a few requests for us to sub the previous Cross Fight B-Daman series of 52 episodes. So we have decided to go ahead and sub the original as well! ^-^

The Project Section has been updated accordingly.

However, please understand that we do this during the little free time that we have, so although we managed to get the first episode of B-Daman eS subbed before the second episode was aired, this might not be the case for all of the episodes.

For now, we will continue subbing B-Daman eS as they are released, and we will sub the original B-Daman episodes on the days we have free time, before the release of the next eS episode.

We will try our best to get the episodes out as early as possible! So be patient! ^-^

Sincerely,
BeTheMan

B-Daman eS Episode 01 has been uploaded here, where you can download the torrent.

It has also been uploaded to our Youtube account, for those of you who aren't too into torrents.

About B-Daman eS


To anyone who's never seen B-Daman before, we just thought we'd let you in on a little secret.

*whisper* You don't have to have seen any previous B-Daman series *whisper*

Although some terms and phrases are repeated, the main character of Cross Fight B-Daman eS is a newly introduced protagonist.



Kamon Godai comes across our second main character, Garburn in the first episode. Although there are a few supporting/antagonist characters that had their places in the previous series, they are reintroduced in this series for any newly converted B-Daman fans.




It's an interesting story about a boy who's simply trying to reach a goal with a friend. We can all relate to that in some way or another. D NES and Skypi are sharing the dream of forming a subgroup! So give B-Daman eS a chance when we release Episode 01 Subbed!

You can go to this site for more information on Cross Fight B-Daman eS ^-^

Sincerely,
BeTheMan


Status Update: B-Daman eS Episode 01


The majority of the process is done, so we just wanted to update everyone on how close B-Daman eS Episode 01 Subbed is from being released!

Raw has been obtained. Timing has been completed. And the video is almost entirely translated. We only have a few sentences towards the end, and the ending song (which is pretty good by the way) to translate. The songs are actually the easiest to translate, I think.

Since we have been editing the subs as we go, much of the editing has been finished as well. Once the ending song has been subbed, we'll review it for any typos and timing issues. After that, it will be uploaded for everyone!

Check out the side bar for the amount of time each step of the subbing process needs >>>

We will announce it here when the episode has been released!

Sincerely,
BeTheMan

Survey 1: Subbing Method Preference


Just wanted to let everyone know that BeTheMan Fansubs plans on conducting a few short one-question, anonymous surveys every once in a while to see what fellow animefans prefer when it comes to the anime they download/stream. This will help us develop our methods, and therefore our subs!

We just finished creating the first survey, which is available to anyone who wants to participate! It's only one-question, and it does not require any personal information whatsoever. ^-^ We will be using a password to protect all future surveys from any irrelevant responses. The [case-sensitive] password is now, and forever will be: "BeTheManFS" Be sure to write it exactly as it is written here, or else you will not be able to participate!

If you'd like to help us out in further perfecting our subbing methods, click the link below and enter the password: BeTheManFS ~

Subbing Method Preference Survey

Thank you for participating in our first survey! Your responses will be very helpful to BeTheMan Fansubs!

Welcome!

Hello Fellow Anime Fans!!!!!

We are a new fansub group that has recently formed: BeTheMan! If you want to know about who we are, please click the "About Us" section.

We are picking up Cross Fight B-Daman eS. You can find out as to why in our "Projects" section. We highly recommend the use of the linked website, as it easily tracks which animes and mangas you have read~ We use the site on a daily basis, so feel free to ask us any questions, or visit our pages to see what we've been watching/reading! Send us an email and we'll give you the link to our pages.

We will be working on Cross Fight eS whenever we have the time, so we apologize for any less-than-speedy updates. There's only two of us, so do not expect timely releases, but we will do our best to have an episode out every week. However, if you're interested in knowing where we are in the process of subbing an episode, feel free to visit our twitter page, where we will be keeping any anime fans updated on how close we are to releasing the next episode. For now, the first episode of Cross Fight B-Daman eS is almost done, so we will upload it when it's been reviewed and edited for the final time. At BeTheMan Fansubs, we value grammatically-correct subs and work hard to never let anyone see any typos.

For those of you who do not have a twitter, don't worry! We will still be posting on here to announce when any new episode has been uploaded.

We hope you enjoy Cross Fight B-Daman eS and any other project we pick up throughout our journey as subbers!

(We are still trying to set up the site, so if any links aren't working, please let us know!)

And always Be The Man!

Sincerely,
BeTheMan
(D NES and Skypi)
