    To clarify: who I mean by "someone more motivated than me" is someone more motivated to see Asuka in its entirety with English subs.

    I wouldn't mind seeing it, but I can live without. I did check to see if you had Asuka subbed, you don't, and saw in the comments some folks are very motivated to see it. So I passed on the information I have.

    such dedication to dig up all this information and write such long post and no motivation to make a last step and try to contact him? :)

    Just found this site. Love it, thanks!

    Here's a little information for those of you really really really determined to see a complete and english subtitled version of Asuka. I remembered seeing a complete subbed version of it sometime ago. I did some digging, and here's what I managed to unearth:

    Almost a decade ago, there was a user on D-Addicts named groink. Groink had a website called and on that website he sold a complete 25 DVD set of Asuka with English subtitles, presumably captured off of Hawaiian TV. Unfortunately, sometime after August 1, 2015, groink let his domain lapse and his website no longer exists. You can, however, see his list of caps here: Pretty imoressive, right?

    Now, groink's last post on D-Addicts was in 2012, having last posted before that in 2009 (prior to this he was an active and contributing member of D-Addicts. I think I recall he was even a moderator at some point). Anyway, in that 2012 post (about his favourite asadora, not so coincidently) groink points out that he has a twitter account, @groinksan, which he was tweeting to up until January 28 of this year, as far as I can tell.

    I am about 65% certain that if someone more motivated then me were to contact groink directly, via twitter dm or what have you, then maybe, just maybe, they could obtain a subbed version of Asuka. Hell, maybe groink might even be persuaded to donate his caps to be uploaded here, seeing as he's no longer selling them, as far as I can tell.

    But, his copies might have been destroyed since 2012 (the last time he updated his website before it went under). Who knows. Still, worth trying, right?
