Synopsis: It relates the amazing adventures of the priest San-zang as he travels west in search of Buddhist sutras with his three disciples, the irreverent and capable Monkey, greedy Pig, and Friar Sandy. The opening chapters recount the earlier exploits of Monkey, culminating in his rebellion against Heaven. The main story, the journey, takes the priest through all kinds of entertaining trials and tribulations, mainly at the hands of monsters and spirits who want to eat him. Only the courage and powers of his disciples, especially Monkey, save him from death. A monkey born from a stone nourished by the Five Elements, who learns the art of the Tao, 72 polymorphic transformations, combat, and secrets of immortality, and through guile and force makes a name for himself as the Qítiān Dàshèng or "Great Sage Equal to Heaven". His powers grow to match the forces of all of the Eastern (Taoist) deities, and the prologue culminates in Sūn's rebellion against Heaven, during a time when he garnered a post in the celestial bureaucracy. Hubris proves his downfall when the Buddha manages to trap him under a mountain and sealing the mountain with a talisman for five hundred years. Dismayed that "the land of the South knows only greed, hedonism, promiscuity, and sins", the Buddha instructs the bodhisattva Guānyīn to search Táng China for someone to take the Buddhist sutras of "transcendence and persuasion for good will" back to the East. The Guanyin enlightens Chen Xuan-zang to let him go to the west. The Emperor Taizong takes Xuanzang as his younger brother, and grants him the name "San Zang". Tang-zang saves Sun Wu-kong from the mountain, and Sun Wu-kong is given a Jin Gu(wore in the head) by Guanyin. They master and apprentice keep on going. They conquered Bai Long in Ying Chou Jian, and Zhu Ba-jie(also named Greedy pig) in Gao Lao Zhuang as his second apprentice. In Liu Sha River, he conquered Sha Wu-jing as his third apprentice. Four of them go to the west together to search for the Buddhist sutras. They vanquish demons and monsters, tramp over the Fiery Mountain, cross the Milky Way, and after overcoming many dangers, finally arrive at their destination - the Thunder Monastery in the Western Heaven - and find the Sutra.

Most recent subs are still not perfect, but cleaned up grammar, spelling, very minor timing tweaks. Completely forgot to include on note that zip files contains ALL subs for all 66 eps. Whoops!

I'm glad I found this with separate subtitle files. I tried watching another version with hard-coded subtitles & it was quite an "experience" watching with so many grammatical errors. It will be a chore, but I will work on these VERY soon. No time table for completion, but feel free to PM me checking my progress. When I'm done I will upload a torrent here (I need to make up A LOT for my poor ratio).
Thanks again to those that worked on & shared the subtitle files. No disrespect intended to those that created the original subtitle files, by the way. This just NEEDS to be done... IMO.

Uploading retimed subs in batches of 10 eps (as I watch them). Two notes:
1. Episode 3 goes from on-time to off-time and then back again. It will need to be retimed completely & re-uploaded, but I don't have the right app to do it. In meantime, if you're on VLC, when you get to ep3, use the track synchronization and edit by half-second as needed to speed up/slow down the subtitles.
2. Episode 7... not much I can do about the vobsub, sorry. If you're on VLC, retime the subs to about a 95 second delay and it'll be pretty close.

Went looking & found some other subs, but they must be for some other production of Journey to the West. The first episode in that version is basically ep1 and half of ep2 in the 2011 version. Looks like the only thing to do is hope someone has the app needed to tweak each line. I tried just blunt-force retiming, but all that does is set the start/end times and proportional time between lines stays the same -- and it's pretty clear that that proportional time isn't correct, either. Some of the subtitles pile up and other times they lag, but the audio is fine.
Does someone have the ability to tweak the overall timing on ep2? (And do the rest of the eps require that, too?)

These subs I guess need some re_timing (this PAL has a Frame rate of 25.000 fps).
i think ancientchinese.net did an English fansub for Journey to the West English 2011
If someone have premium rap!dshare account, download it and upload to AT =P

For me the audio seems to stop randomly and sometimes crashes the window media player. This happens a few times in every episode i watched! is there any special media player or codec i'm missing to play this show?
31/05/2012 04.56 pm
Wish there were 720p. Thanks anyway!

If anyone ever find subs for this series please post links here. Thank you.

[/size][size=3]Awwww, man.. if only this had English SUBTITLES!
15/03/2012 09.46 pm
Sorry guys the subtitles are for the 2010 series.
Well those still need to be timed also, so they can be used with rips on site.
15/03/2012 01.19 pm
These subtitles might work they need to be timed i think. But they are for this series if i'm correct. Hope someone is able to get these to work with the files.
