Interviews with Anime FanSubbing Staff

The Goddess interviews one of Saizen's QCer sangofe and former timer.

uniquec: Yes, this is really another interview after a hiatus of several months and you probably thought you were safe from this frivolity but no. We bring back the infamous Goddess interviews in all of it wonderful splendor. (I know some of you must have thought that I had gotten tired of doing them and was hoping for my demise; but, fear not I have return once again to strike fear or amusement in the lives of fansubbers everywhere.) On this returning installment we bring you sangofe of Saizen who actually wanted to do this without me asking and you know I don't say no to people who are willing to do them. Welcome to the show.

sangofe: Okay, I'm all yours.

uniquec: Are you sure?:)

sangofe: Yes.

uniquec: So what do you do fansubbing wise?

sangofe: Right now I only QC, but for 3 years or so, I was timing.

uniquec: What do you rather doing QCing or timing more?

sangofe: Well, I haven't timed in nearly a year now, but when I did, I enjoyed timing more.

sangofe: Oh, and if translating from French to English counts, I do that too.

sangofe: (Kinda forgot about that, because it's not really counted as "real" translating).

uniquec: There isn't quite a demand for french to english fansubbing translations.

sangofe: Nope, not really :)

uniquec: So what group or groups you work for?

sangofe: Right now, only Saizen, but I've worked with a dozen throughout the years.

uniquec: For example...

sangofe: Mendoi, BSS, SD project, Anime-Empire.

uniquec: How long you been fansubbing?

sangofe: Since 2004.

uniquec: How did you get into fansubbing?

sangofe: I sent dvds out to the founder of AnimeHQ, then, when he started Saizen, I asked if he'd want me to do some QC and things just rolled from there.

uniquec: The rest is history.

uniquec: So who would you want to be stranded on a desert island with from the fansubbing community?

sangofe: Does it has to be people that are active or can it be people that have retired as well?

uniquec: Doesn't matter, your choice.

sangofe: Hmm, tough choice, but I think I'd say Leile.

uniquec: Why?

sangofe: Because she's a lovely person I already met IRL and a timer I trained :)

uniquec: How about non fansubbing person?

sangofe: Hm, I guess it would be interesting to be stranded on a desert island with the person I've just recently started to date, at least I'd get to know her well that way :)

uniquec: True, although the relationship might not last due too much togetherness. :)

sangofe: That's the point; it's not a relationship yet :D

uniquec: You will kill each other on the island!

sangofe: Like cannibals, you mean :P?

uniquec: Perhaps lack of food could be the excuse.

uniquec: So what hobbies do you have outside anime?

sangofe: I like to go out in the nature, bike, swim, football (NOT US football), watch movies, breathe fresh air, watch anime, relax, work out in a studio...

uniquec: I didn't know breathing fresh air is a hobby, so is breathing bad air a part of life then?

sangofe: Oh, I missread that as "what do you like to do".

uniquec: Lol.

sangofe: No, it's not, what I ment is that I feel dependent of fresh air. If I'm not outside and can breathe fresh air (I hate cities), I feel bad.

uniquec: What is your favourite movie?

sangofe: Favourite movie... Hm. I think probably the last Batman movie is.

uniquec: How so?

sangofe: It has great action, and the joker is fabulously well played.

uniquec: Joker is your favourite Batman enemy?

sangofe: Yes.

uniquec: Why?

sangofe: His insanity is fascinating.

uniquec: His level of madness.

uniquec: Least favourite movie?

sangofe: Uh... It probably was so bad that I forgot that it's called :P

sangofe: Oh, maybe Dragonball Evolution, when I think about it some more.

uniquec: You don't want to ever think of it again so you erased it from your existance.

sangofe: Exactly.

uniquec: Heh that bad that you remember now.

sangofe: About hobbies; I forgot to write I like to cook.

uniquec: So what do you like to cook?

sangofe: Anything as long as I can use creativity.

uniquec: Would you say you are good cook?

sangofe: Yes.

uniquec: And your speciality is?

sangofe: That would be my ability of making something tasty out of about anything.

uniquec: Anything and on the spur of the moment. Nothing that is your signature dish?

sangofe: Nope. When I cook, I like to start with an ingredient and supply with other tastes that I feel would be tasty together.

sangofe: Never really knowing what I'm gonna cook is what I like about cooking; it lets my creativity flow.

uniquec: Nothing is ever made the same twice. What is your favurite food to eat then?

sangofe: Hmm. Probably something with fresh fish.

sangofe: And when I say fresh, I mean fished within a couple of hours.

uniquec: Not something that been sitting out all day.

uniquec: Least favourite food to consume?

sangofe: That would be... anchovy, probably. Or snails.

uniquec: You can't choose one more than the other?

sangofe: I'd say snails then.

uniquec: So what would you like to be doing in 20 years?

sangofe: Good lord, I have no idea.

sangofe: I take one day at a time... I don't like to plan.

uniquec: You take things as they come.

uniquec: Would you say that you are an adventurous?

sangofe: Yeah, I guess so.

uniquec: What would you like to do but never done?

sangofe: Bungee jump in Cape Town.

uniquec: Why?

sangofe: Because you jump from 216 meters height, and I think that would give a sick adrenaline rush.

sangofe: Already tried it in Bali (was barely 40 meters), and I really enjoyed doing that.

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

sangofe: South Africa, Brazil, Japan, Iceland, Switzerland, Cuba, China...

uniquec: Any place more than the other?

sangofe: Hm, not really.

uniquec: Where would you recomend that you been?

sangofe: Bali.

uniquec: What about Bali?

sangofe: The people there are really nice, and it's always warm there with beaches everywhere, and if you want mountains, you also have that. For a westerner, it's also really cheap to live and stay.

uniquec: Innie or outie belly button?

sangofe: Lol, what kind of question is that?

uniquec: It's my traditional question that I ask. :)

sangofe: I'd say Innie, I guess?

uniquec: You aren't sure. :p

sangofe: I don't think I've seen outie belly buttons.

uniquec: Linty belly buttons perhaps.

sangofe: Uh, can't say I know what linty belly button is.

uniquec: More innie which means it can capture things like dirt or in this case lint.

sangofe: Lol.

sangofe: Sounds funny.

uniquec: I know I have such an odd outlook on things at times.

uniquec: If you think that one is bad then..what your preference boxers or briefs?:)

sangofe: Briefs.

uniquec: Introvert or extrovert?

sangofe: Extrovert.

sangofe: Still navel questions? Lol.

sangofe: I must ask you; do you have a fetish on belly buttons xD?

uniquec: Lol....personality wise introvert or extrovert.

sangofe: Extrovert.

uniquec: In which way?

sangofe: Easy to communicate with, and open.

uniquec: And you would find yourself doing this interview. :) What is your favourite colour?

sangofe: Color has to be green.

uniquec: Light, medium or dark green?

sangofe: Light.

uniquec: Do you remember your dreams?

sangofe: Mostly not, but if I think about remembering them before I fall asleep, I remember some of it.

sangofe: And if I'm near spiritual people I remember a lot...

uniquec: Do you dream in color or black and white?

sangofe: Color.

uniquec: what is the strangest dream that you can remember?

sangofe: I was in my old bed from childhood, and over that bad was another bed on the top of it (it was constructed that way). Suddenly, a friend of mine was sitting next to me. all of this happened at my father's farm. Then, the next moment, two girls come down from that bed, and when they're about to jump onto us with their mouth open, they suddenly turn into guys. I quickly jump out of the bed, and start fighting one of the guys that turn into a a small, flying dinosaur.

sangofe: In the end I win and kill it with some super powers I discover having.

uniquec: Lol the guys turned into a...

sangofe: Yep, a small, flying dinosaur.

uniquec: Dinosaur fetish eh.

uniquec: Talking about super powers...what super powers would you like and why?

sangofe: I would like to be able to fly, lift whatever I'd want to, run as fast I'd like to, and shoot ki energy.

sangofe: Why? Because that would be awesome and useful at times.

uniquec: Would you abuse your powers or use it for the good of mankind?

sangofe: Good.

uniquec: What would you like to be remember after your death?

sangofe: I don't know how my life will be, so how can I answer that question?

uniquec: It doesn't have to be about career for example being a good friend, etc.

sangofe: I honestly don't know, but I'm constantly changing as a person.

sangofe: But I guess I'd like to be remembered for being a good person.

uniquec: As appose to being a bad person.

uniquec: What is your favourite anime?

sangofe: For nostalgic reasons, I'd say Dragonball.

uniquec: Least favourite?

sangofe: Eh, hm, some of the moe shit anime titles out there.

uniquec: There are a lot of them out there.

sangofe: Yeah.

sangofe: I hate them all.

uniquec: You don't have one you dislike more than the other?

sangofe: Nah, I can't stand any of them.

sangofe: I hate them to the point that I don't remember names.

sangofe: Err, titles.

uniquec: That bad.

sangofe: Yes.

uniquec: So what is your favourite type of music?

sangofe: Rap or classic music.

uniquec: Least favourite?

sangofe: Hm, probably Jazz, or Rock.

uniquec: What song would you say best suit your personality?

sangofe: I really have no idea.

sangofe: I don't usually know songs by titles.

uniquec: How do you lik to eat eggs?

sangofe: In all forms, actually.

uniquec: Favourite way?

sangofe: Like this: Link

sangofe: It's soft inside.

uniquec: Yeah any condiments with it?

sangofe: Eh, only salt.

uniquec: Is there anything that you treasure?

sangofe: Yes, my family and friends.

uniquec: Nothing materialistic? Would you say that you are materialistic?

sangofe: Not really.

sangofe: I guess my Dragonball DVD collection, if anything.

uniquec: What would you like others to know about you that they might not know?

sangofe: For people that don't really know me, I often come off as dramatic and instense, so I'd like them to know that I'm not really that.

uniquec: But an angel... :)

sangofe: No, I'm calm, easy going and nice. Not really an angel, even though I really like to be good to people.

uniquec: What is your ideal day?

sangofe: A day when that is varied; I get to breathe fresh air, communicate with people, work out or use the body in other ways, maybe watch some anime to relax, and to see the sun!

uniquec: And see the sun set as well.

sangofe: Lol, I don't mind how I see it, as long as it shines on me!

uniquec: So had enough of this randomness?

sangofe: Yes, more than enough :P

uniquec: So then any parting words of wisdom?

sangofe: Yes; live here and now in the spur of the moment!

uniquec: With no regrets.

sangofe: Obviously nobody should have any regrets.

uniquec: Thank you for doing this interview.

sangofe: No problem.

uniquec: Another informative interview as we appreciate sangofe for taking his time and spending it with us. Who knows whoelse out there who are willing to put up with the Goddess questions.
