I just wanted to come here and say that I'm a huge fan of your work. Your KFX are almost always total eyecandy (especially for Charlotte and Dandelion!) and I sometimes replay OPs/EDs just to look at the KFX again. Can't wait to see what else you can bring, Jocko!

Sorry it took me so long, I've forgotten about this. Thanks a lot! Keep an eye out, I'll be doing a couple things this season.

How did you start with fansubbing?

For some reasons I had a lot of free time and it was starting to weigh on me so I was looking for things to do and I saw a timer recruiting post on doki. Once a timer I started picking up the rest by myself/reading guides/asking people.

Hi, can you explain how KFX is done?

I have a blog (and plans to expand it soon) http://jockotan.wordpress.com/ but for a quick overview, I usually start by listening to the song a couple times and watching the animation. If I get inspired quickly I'll start working right away, otherwise I might put it on hold until I come up with something. I pick a style (font and colors) and start working on the base effects, like placing the lines, and transitions, and then depending on how complex the idea I have is I'll work on the rest of the stuff, like highlights, particles and such. Then it's a lot of watching again and again changing values until I get something I like, and making a similar effect for english translation (and kanji if I have them).
