Interviews with Anime FanSubbing Staff

The Goddess interviews Calan a Qcer and sometime Translator Checker for several groups like Animanda, Conclave, CoalGuys, Umai, and HonE.

uniquec: In the continuing saga of these compelling interviews, we bring to you a 12 year old who enjoys being kicked out of several groups. We were offfered Calan of various groups as a sacrifice.

uniquec: You are sure you want to do an interview and not being pressured to do one?

Calan: No it's ok I can do one.

Calan: To be honest I've always dreamed of being interviewed.

uniquec: Lol.

Calan: After I saw twilightblanc was interviewed, I knew it was my destiny to be interviewed one day too.

uniquec: Alright then boring question time.

Calan: Yay.

uniquec: What do you do fansubbing wise?

Calan: I edit and I QC, oh and I annoy people. And sometimes I TLC because I have some japanese knowledge.

uniquec: In that order?

Calan: Usually. Sometimes I'm instructed to QC before editing, but that often does not work out very well.

uniquec: Who do you fansub for?

Calan: Currently I'm in Animanda, Conclave, CoalGuys, Umai, and HonE. I used to be in a lot more.

uniquec: But...?

Calan: I was serious when I said I annoy people. I've been "kicked out" from a lot of groups. Sometimes I even get kicked out for fansubbing too hard, which is kind of unfortunate to see.

uniquec: Why did you get into fansubbing?

Calan: Death Note was airing and this girl I liked was in love with it, so I started watching fansubs of it. Most of them were really bad speedsubs with horrible editing (well, no editing actually), so I applied to one so I could make fansubs better.

uniquec: And the rest is history in between being kicked out of groups. Who would you want to be stranded on a desert island with fansubbing wise?

Calan: Probably Mango-chan. Him and I are fansubbing bros.

uniquec: Non fansubbing person?

Calan: If the island had various plants and animals, then I'd probably want some sort of hunter man to go get food. Otherwise any generic attractive girl would do... y'know, something (or someone) to do while I starve to death.

uniquec: Die happy. What are your hobbies outside of anime?

Calan: I exercise a lot, if that can be considered a hobby. I play piano!

Calan: I also run a website >_>

uniquec: How well do you play the piano?

Calan: I'd like to think I'm pretty good, but those darn Asian kids at school put me to shame. I've been playing for about 6 years though, so in the Royal Conservatory of Music grades I'm in about grade 9 or 10.

uniquec: Where would you like to travel to but never been?

Calan: I'll avoid the weaboo answer of Japan and say Europe. There's a lot of really interesting history there and it just seems like it would be a really interesting place without being overwhelmingly different like Japan would be.

uniquec: Any particular place in Europe you would like to visit?

Calan: Probably England to start. Maybe I'd find some fansubbers who are not murderers or rapists and try to stay with them for a few days wherever they are in Europe.

uniquec: You have such high expectations of your fellow fansubbers. Where would you recomend visiting that you have been?

Calan: Yeah, you're right, there's no chance anyone would let me stay with them. I've been to the Bahamas a lot, and it's really nice there. A lot cleaner etc., than a lot of places like Mexico that people go to have nice weather.

uniquec: I was refering to them being murderers and rapists. What would you like to do but never done?

Calan: Haha. Hmm, tough question... I'm not really the skydiving type. I think riding a motorcycle would be pretty cool.

uniquec: As long as you dont crash it. Favourite food?

Calan: Well, I really like bananas. A girl I know knew that and made me chocolate and banana cupcakes with banana icing for my birthday last year. That was probably my favorite food experience, so I'll go with chocolate and banana cupcakes with banana-flavored icing.

uniquec: Least favourite food?

Calan: Parsnips. I really do not like parsnips.

uniquec: You hate it more than anything. How do you like to eat eggs?

Calan: Well, not more than anything, but they are definitely up there. I like eggs benedict. But if it's just eggs, I like the yolk runny so I can dip bread in it. I don't know what that's called - my mommy just makes it for me. Oh, I'm like 12 years old, so it's ok that my mommy does that.

uniquec: How do you see yourself 20 years from now?

Calan: I really don't know. I haven't decided what to do in university yet, but I don't have to decide for a while. But in terms of life overall, I'd like to be (happily) married, live in a more interesting city, and be happy doing whatever I do, even if it doesn't make me tons of money.

uniquec: And in good health. Innie or outie belly button?

Calan: Innie. This guy I know doesn't have a belly button - it's pretty much just a slight depression where his belly button should be. Looks all kinds of alien, but I'm kind of jealous.

uniquec: You want to be an alien?

Calan: Yeah. I'm a teenager - being different is cool.

uniquec: Boxers or briefs?

Calan: Boxer briefs.

uniquec: Introvert or extrovert?

Calan: A little of both. I like to be friendly and as outgoing as possible, but I know when to keep to myself.

uniquec: Depends on the situation. Do you remember your dreams?

Calan: Sometimes, but usually I forget them before the day is over.

uniquec: They aren't too worthy to remember. Do you dream in colour or black and white?

Calan: I think colour.

uniquec: What is the oddest/weird dream that you remember?

Calan: When I was like 4 I'd have these nightmares where I think like random shapes of different colors were chasing me. In fact, they weren't really shapes, they were sort of blobs of colors, almost like when you close your eyes in the light and can see weird colors stuffs.

Calan: It was really scary to me at the time.

uniquec: The colours scared you not the shape. What is your favourite colour?

Calan: Yeah, I'm not sure exactly why they were frightening. It was long ago. I really like red. Or pink. Pink is a good color. It is the new black you know.

uniquec: Light, medium or dark?

Calan: Light or medium. Light red is like pink, so... yeah.

uniquec: Heh, favourite anime?

Calan: Ouran High School Host Club or Beck.

uniquec: Why?

Calan: I just found OHSHC really funny and cute, so it was probably the most entertaining anime I've ever seen. Beck was just really interesting. The music was fun and stuff, and it had a good story.

uniquec: Least favourite?

Calan: Too many to name. Usually I don't watch shows long enough to truly hate them though, so i only hate them if I have to fansub them and they suck. So in that category, Akikan and Asu no Yoichi would be my least favourites.

uniquec: Heh. What type of music do you like?

Calan: Pretty much everything. I don't really have a favourite.

uniquec: Nothing that you detest?

Calan: Some techno stuff and some rap is pretty bad. So is some country. But I like a lot more than I hate.

uniquec: Favourite movie?

Calan: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

uniquec: How so?

Calan: I'm not sure. I hear a lot of people thought it was really long and pointless. I thought it was wonderful, and at times it almost brought me to tears. I am not a tearful boy. So I guess just the emotional response aspect made it "the best".

uniquec: It drew you in. Least favourite movie?

Calan:Probably some kids movies. like that "Cats & Dogs" movie.

uniquec: If you were a super hero, whaat powers would you want?

Calan: I'd like to be able to teleport, freeze time, and time travel. Basically I'd like to be like Hiro from Heroes.

uniquec: Do you think you would make a good super hero?

Calan: I'm not sure. The reasons I'd want those powers aren't really so I could save the world or make it a better place, though I probably would eventually try to do that. So yeah, I think I'd be pretty good.

uniquec: You wouldn't abuse it?

Calan: I probably would, for a few personal things, but other than that I'd try to use them only to benefit others.

uniquec: What would you like to remember after your demise?

Calan: I'm not sure what you mean.

uniquec: After you die?

Calan: I don't think I could remember anything if I was dead. People die when they are killed, you know.

uniquec: You don't want to be remember after your death? Obituary would say about you?

Calan: Ohhh I thought you meant something different. Uhh, I guess I would like to accomplish something in my life that people would remember. Y'know, have a Wikipedia article on me.

uniquec: Lol but you have not decide on what it would say....a blank page. What would you like others to know about you that they might not know?

Calan: I am not actually annoying in person. It's just so easy to do it on the internet where things are obviously so serious.

uniquec: Just like fansubbing is such a serious business!

Calan: Indeed.

uniquec: Any parting words of wisdom?

Calan: I just saw Star Trek, so I'll go with "Live long and prosper."

uniquec: Did you enjoy the movie?

Calan: Yeah, it was pretty good.

uniquec: Thanks for doing the interview .

uniquec: This concludes another epic interview. We hope the viewer enjoy the show as we hope Calan, somehow manage not to be kicked out of too many groups.
