Hachi-One Diver ハチワンダイバー Screen Caps
I was surprised when I checked for subs yesterday and found Japanese subs for the series posted and with no group stating that they’ll be subbing it, I ran the Japanese subs through the Google translator and this is the result. I now know the main characters name Sugata Kentaro and the guy he beat in the opening match, I now think he lost on purpose to lure him to the Akihabara parlor. Kentaro’s never lost a match, but has won 182 times and was studying to be a pro shogi player but now gambles on shogi to meet his living expenses. He keeps all the money he wins in a can in his apartment, when the maid shows up he stakes this money for a game. She agrees and he loses everything he has except for 7 yen. I still have no idea why the maid shows up or even why she’s a maid as she obviously wins more money at shogi then Kentaro.
Just as I was going to post this, new subs have been released by burento5 and they are a huge improvement over the machine made subs. Just for a quick example, I had no idea why a maid showed up at his door with the google subs, these explain clearly why she showed up. The guy he lost too in the first game didn't lose on purpose to Kentaro, he was giving him advice on how not to scare away opponents.
The shows two main characters are Mizobata Junpei (Hanazakari no Kimitachi e, Seito Shokun!) as Sugata Kentaro and Naka Riisa (Jodan ja nai!, My Boss My Hero) as Nakashizu Soyo. If you liked the anime Hikaru no Go give this show a try, I loved that anime and it's one of the reasons I wanted to see this drama.
Download the RAW video bit torrent file here, get real subs released by burento5 not machine made here.
Update 5/9 burento5 has posted a Translated Interview with Soyo ("Akihabara's Champion")/Miruku (Maid) Nakashizu's Role played by Riisa Naka at the same link used for the subs. Here.
burento5's subs are 1000x better then these, but I'd already uploaded these to the server.
