[TPF] Mechaike Idol Special subbed download link

So you guys remember that idol special where Momoko was abused by one of the hosts? I even posted a screenshot/download link post about it.


Just in case you missed both of those, well, Mechaike held an idol special in September 2011 that pitted quite a few non-AKB idol groups against each other in various games to see who would come out victorious.


When TPF-Subs leader SFGundam (shameless promotion: check out our new website) came to me and said he was considering picking up this project, I was incredibly happy. Anyone who saw the unsubbed version knows how epic it is, so sure, why not? Then I found out that it would be a four person project (2 translators, an editor, and me), I thought he was insane. Normally a project of this caliber takes double that amount of staff, so this was a huge challenge for every single person involved.


A huge thanks goes to SFGundam, murr, and Aleria Carventus for making this happen. All four of us worked so very hard on this for a long time to make sure us foreign fans would be able to understand such an amazing show. I can't speak for everyone, but for me, it was the hardest video I've ever worked on in the 3+ years I've been fansubbing. The typesetting especially was really difficult because it required a lot of hiding the original kanji to make it look decent. Before TPF, I'd never even tried typesetting, so I'm very happy that I was able to complete a video this difficult. The vast majority of the captions are completely translated (I'd say around 95%), so you'll really get the complete experience.


I won't go into a full screenshot review here since I did that in a previous post (and it's best not spoiled anyway), but I will give a basic description of it.


For this special occasion, idol groups Berryz Koubou, S/mileage, SDN48, Idoling!!!, PASSPO☆, SUPER☆GiRLS, Ebisu Muscats, and Nakano Fujo Sisters all came together to battle for the title of best non-AKB idol group.


After getting to know the groups individually, they played three games - a flag retrieval challenge, a high jump, and a one-on-one sumo battle. At stake was a chance to perform their new single at the end of the show on primetime television. It doesn't get much better than that for an idol group! Watch as Berryz and S/mileage represent Hello! Project and take on a bunch of other idol groups eying that very same prize.

  1. Thank you!

    *bites nails* I didn't watch all of the video from the first post so I don't know who wins. Nn, I can only guess that it's not an H!P group. Fingers crossed.

  7. Just finished watching it. Is it just me or the audio disappears at 46:17 till the end? ._.

  8. Yeah sorry guys, I edited out a CM and it must have screwed up the audio. I could fix it, but does any actually care? Because you'd have to download a whole 900 MB video just for a minute worth of audio. I could certainly fix it though.

  20. Thanks so much.

    BTW, does a certain group have to remove the star from their name because they got less points? Hehe....
