Marezora Subs is a new subbing and translating community started by Rin and Hanna who met through their love of Tsuchiya Tao.
This community's main focus will be all things Tsuchiya Tao - dramas, varieties, interviews - but we also love a bunch of other young Japanese talents (especially asadora actors) and they might make an appearance in our projects!

Feel free to post a self introduction in the comments to this post.
First, we want to officially announce our spring subbing project: Tetstu no Hone! We're excited to see Tao challenge a new kind of role in this WOWOW drama.
Synopsis: Tomishima Heita (Kamiki Ryunosuke) has worked for a mid-sized construction company for the past 4 years. He is sincere and enjoys working on construction sites. One day, he is transferred to the business affairs department. The role of this department is to obtain contracts with large organizations. The department is jeered by other workers and often referred to as the collusion department. Heita struggles between his ideals and reality but nevertheless begins to enjoy his work and his company takes the lead in winning a large contract. Meanwhile, a special prosecution team looks into corruption involving politicians and Heita becomes a target.
There will be 5 episodes total and we'll be subbing them as they release weekly.
Additionally, we have started a Marezora Subs Discord Server! This does not replace this LiveJournal, but instead supplements it with more space for announcements, discussion, requests, posting raw files etc. We hope it will become a place for many fans of Tao's work to come hang out!

That's all for now! Please look forward to Tetsu no Hone!
Hi everyone! It's been quite a while since our last update, but today I am happy to announce that we will be subbing Tao's newest Drama Special W no Higeki(W's Tragedy). The special aired on NHK on November 23rd, 2019.
W no Higeki is an adaptation of the 1982 mystery novel by Shizuko Natsuki. Since then, there have been many drama and film versions, each a slightly different take on the story.
Synopsis: The story begins with the following incident: Watsuji Mako (Tsuchiya Tao) kills her grandfather at his birthday party held at their family villa. Believing it to be self-defence, Mako's mother (Nakayama Miho) asks the gathered family members to help conceal the crime. Uncle Shigeru (Tsurumi Shingo) and the chief physician Mazaki (Yoshida Eisaku) try to stage the killing as a robbery gone wrong. Mako's friend Harumi (Mimura Rie), who was a guest at the party, becomes an unwilling accomplice. They try to disrupt the police investigation without knowing there is a traitor in their midst. Soon, the truth will be revealed...
I am admittedly a slow subber, so please be patient over the next month or so! In the meantime, I hope you'll look forward to W no Higeki!
