This series seems promising, and instead of replaying Tokyo no Sora (lyrics here), I figured I should do something more productive with my time and translate the first episode for those who want to try it out. For now, I'm loving everything about this drama, and the beautiful soundtrack is a huge draw for me. In fact, I planned to take a break from subbing dramas for a while, and yet... Still, I can't promise that I will stick to this series until the end. For once, I want to translate with no commitment - which means, if the series puts me down subsequently, I will drop it. However, with the drama's premise as it is, I doubt it will disappoint me. Anyhow, hope you guys will enjoy it!

Ep 1: Enjoy!
Soredemo, Ikite Yuku ep01 (450p x264)
- Sugi Ryoutarou: a Japanese singer and actor
- Atsumi Kiyoshi: a Japanese film actor who died in 1996. He was the star of the highly popular series Tora-san which made his name synonymous with the show's success and the character.
- A Dog of Flanders: an English novel about a Flemish boy named Nello and his dog Patrasche.
Ep 2: The writing is absolutely gorgeous!
Soredemo, Ikite Yuku ep02 (450p x264)
- Shachou: president/manager of a company - "guts-pose": this term is only used and understood in Japan. The proper English word for it is perhaps "victory pose".
Ep 3: A bit later than the first two eps ^^

Ep 4: How cute is Hiroki's brother for always quoting manga. Subtle comic relief for a heavy show.
Here's the subs for the japanese-chinese hardsubbed HD version, but they should sync with the 704x396 and 450x264 videos too. Just change the file name and you're good to go.

- Takami and Shunsuke (Futaba's parents) call each other using Otou-san and Okaa-san. It's just a culture thing in Japan for husbands and wives to refer to each other as father and mother, so I have decided to keep that.
Ep 5: What else can I say about this episode? Best episode so far! Shinobu-san really shines in this one.

Ep 6: I was curious about one of the songs Futaba sings in the karaoke bar, and here is I'm Falling in Love with You Again. The singer's voice is beautiful :)

Ep 7: There will be some delay for ep 8 onwards. Usually I try to make subs available for an episode before the next episode is aired, but it might not be the case for the rest of the drama. I'll get really busy, is all. I'll try though.
