Matsuoka Shuzo [松岡修造 ] - あきらめかけているあなた (NEVER GIVE UP!!) [English]

Matsuoka Shuzo's famous NEVER GIVE UP!! message, subtitled in English for those viewers who have no clue what he's saying.

After seeing so many MAD videos of his speeches tuned to many songs such as Second Heaven, RED ZONE, Xepher, among others, I was disappointed that there were no videos of his original speeches subbed on YouTube. Thus I decided I wanted to subtitle his original speeches so that others may be motivated by his speeches.

To note: I did NOT translate his message, credit goes to jesshi at for translating it for their own performance of it. Their video can be found here.

Editing, Timing, Typesetting, Encoding and whatnot was done by me.

Of course, because I use the translations of other users, I cannot sub any particular video unless I can find someone who has a translation or if someone sends me one. If you find a translation or you have a translation that you want to get subbed, please message me.
