Hey all, I'm coming to you all to ask for your support, this time I'm running a petition for a new cause. I'm trying to get the word out to the online community of Viki, known for subtitle translating anime, to finish translating the 80's Jungle Emperor Leo series (or the New Adventures of Kimba the White Lion) into English. Currently the first half of the show (ie episodes 1-24 are sub translated into English) while the second half (episodes 25-52) remain either incomplete or untranslated into English entirely!
You can find the episodes on youtube and the viki site but I've really gotten into the series and I would love to watch the rest of the series if only the subtitles were available in English for all episodes. I've read the comments by other people who are just as disappointed (clean and crude) it seems as though it's been 2 years since they did anything with the episodes, let alone bother to finish translating the episodes with English subtitle tracks. I wouldn't translate it myself as I know very limited Japanese and I have a life with no time to continue to learn the language.
So I put my best foot forward and set up this petition. If any of you happen to be fans of this series or would love to experience to it for the first time then please sign and show this petition to viki. We need to let the online community know that this anime should not be ignored and it's important that us western anime fans would like to follow and understand the emotions and the plot of the anime.
If anyone happens to be part of the online viki community and knows a sufficient amount of Japanese please help our cause by finishing the translation of the anime into English. Thank you for reading!
