Saimin Subs - Noms!

Sunday, January 20, 2008


Hello and welcome to SaiMin Subs! This fansubbing group is going to be mainly focused on tokusatsu shows, and basically anything else we can think of :D.

Just to give a little background on why we chose the name SaiMin: To several of us, Saimin means a total of 3 things.

1) Saimin = Ramen, but in a different dialect of Chinese. Saimin is the popular name for this dish in Hawaii, where most of us are from, its served everywhere, including McDonald's! Imagine being able to order ramen from McDonald's! Well we can :D

2) Saimin = 催眠 = hypnosis in Japanese. Do I really have something else to say about this? :D

3) Saimin = Saimin II, our cat. His name is Saimin II, don't forget the II. It comes from him being part siamese... which kinda sounds like saimin.... And since his name is hard to say (no it isn't), we have several nicknames for him, Bien (from BN = benjo neko = bathroom cat), Saimonini, and brat. He belongs to Bakaneko425, ..technically, but he loves his grandma and only sits in IkemenSarang's lap. Miaka975 is the evil aunty who likes to torture him :D. He lives in our home in Hawaii and tortures his brother, Tiggy III, (yes he's the third Tiggy).

We're still a ways from getting our first release out, but I just want to do a little member introductions!

Also , I just want to say, we're doing this for fun, and we're not getting any profit from this! In fact, we might be losing money by working on this! (thinks about all the study hours I've lost working on this) So please do not bash the members or ask when the next episode will be done. Thats for me to do :D.

So we're open for membership! If you want to join the team, please leave a comment below, or email Miaka975 @ We're looking for any kind of help right now! However, I don't have the skills to teach you how to do things, so hopefully, you're open to self-learning, or already know the basics in aegisub! Thanks guys!
