And so the journey of Wandering Girl Nell (Sasurai no Shoujo Nell) is completed with the release of the batch. All 26 episodes of this series, loosely based on Charles Dickens’ book ‘The Old Curiosity Shop’ (1841), are now translated. A big thanks to our partners GANGO and Old Castle for helping South Wind Subs with this! We would also like to thank: inactive/ARR (who released the RAW), ramen (translation of songs 1&2) & ‘K’ (provided the Italian sub rip we used for initial translation). The batch includes some small textual and cosmetic corrections, but also introduces chapters to easily select the different parts of the episodes. We hope everyone grabs the latest files, especially those of you who are seeding (thanks)!
