I’m pleased to announce that we have decided to pick up Hakushaku to Yousei. As you might already be aware, the first episode was aired one week early as a preview for the series. We liked what we saw and we just couldn’t resist Mizuki Nana again. However, we will not be starting until next week. The raws for the early airing weren’t very good, so we will wait until the normal airing (next week) so we can pick out the best raw.

And we might still be picking up one more show. We haven’t decided yet, but we have a show or two in mind. I can also confirm that we will not be doing ToraDora. The group that I mentioned in the other post has confirmed that they will pick up the show.

That’s all for today.

We have found our QCer. Thanks to all of those that applied.

    Watched the raw and hate that blonde dude enough to never go near this series again, since he seems to be playing a big role in it.

  14. I’m so glad that you had decided to pick up Hakushaku to Yousei. That show is very interesting and of course, a Tamaki look a like πŸ˜‰ Kudos!!

    i am britsh, i did study a-level english, a-level being the 1st lot of studies after compulsary education. I have tried for similar positions in the past and not got them. One of the main reason i get told no is my tendency to use shortforms and slang etc, when it doesnt have to be perfect, like right now-i have never actually been tested on something that needed QC’in, but i gave up a while ago on ever being a QC’er.
    Also pretty out of practice of actually doing QC of any kind. Not that familiar with IRC, used a couple of times when applying in the past, but dont go on it unless i need to(i consider it to be like msn, something that will consume my free time without doing anything).
    So i wont be applying to avoid yet another dissappointment, so the only thing i can and will do is wish you luck, and im sure the finished product will be perfect as always, im looking forward to it.

    i am a little sad that you guys won’t pick up toradora. but it was your choice not to, so meh.
    this anime better not have some kind of reverse harem, as all the other ones that have bishies in it -.-

    so sad that you won’t be getting ToraDora.. D:

    well as I’ve told by my other friends that’s more otaku-er than me that this will be a good show. Might archive this if it’ll interest me. (bout 4~8 episodes)

    hmmm.. may I ask which fansub group will do ToraDora?

    I just watched the 1st ep raw & it seems to be promising, but I just can’t help being a little creeped out for some odd reason by Edgar. I understood some of the dialogue so that may also be part of it, but there’s just something wrong w/ him being “prettier” than the lead heroine, Lydia.

    Nice boat and Rozen fansubs seem to be picking up Toradora. Not sure if they are the group this site mentions, but they did do an amazing job for true tears

    nooo, I hate “the group” that’s doing Toradora and they almost never release in a reasonable amount of time.

    and I hop you change your minds and pick Skip Beat!

    Well, they pretty much confirmed it, so I might as well tell you guys that gg is doing ToraDora! dustc, I hope you don’t think that they’re slow, because they certainly aren’t.

  33. Glad to see you found a QCer.

    I’d have been little help despite being born and raised there and having an A in A Level English language and Literature. Since I don’t have IRC and have no idea what a QCer is! XD

    And thank you for subbing this show, I greatly enjoyed your work on Itazura na kiss.

    Seeing the image of Big Ben really piqued my interest in this show and made me nostalgic about home.

    Funny how everyone call it that, even though Big Ben is actually the name of the Bell not the Tower.

    Although one supposes its no different from everyone thinking Tower Bridge is London bridge πŸ™‚

    They even put Scotland in there for the first ep which made me doubly happy since my Grandaddy is Scottish.

    Its been far too long since I got to wander around the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

    Anyhoo, thank you very much!

    tun, I was thinking of the group that calls themselves “quality fansubbing group” cause we don’t have inside info like you do. Thank god gg is doing it.

    I’m so glad you guys decided to pick up this series. I watched the preview episode and it looked promising (well, I must admit that having to hear Hikaru Midorikawa’s sexy voice again made me kind of *kyaa~!!!* and *drools* XD Can’t wait to hear (I mean, watch) Tomokazu Sugita and Miyano Mamoru’s characters in this one!
