Here is the final episode of Nogizaka Haruka 12, along with the batch torrents. We decided to go back to Anirena for the batches because Box Torrents was too much of a hassle.

And now on to the next season stuff…

Looks like Mango got you guys good. Let me go through the real plans.

The following are confirmed shows

  • Telepathy Shoujo Ran

Continuation from this season. No explanation necessary.

  • Rosario + Vampire Capu2

This will be a continuation of our joint project with Ayako from the first season. So far I’ve heard very shitty reviews about the first episode, but I guess that was to be expected.

  • Chaos;Head [ Link ]

This will be the first real departure from our normal genre of shows. You guys know that we mostly do daily life romance shows, but this one will be pretty different. You guys are just better off reading the Wikipedia page.

List of possible projects

  • ToraDora!

This will depend on if another group is doing it. Hopefully they will let us know in a few days. m.3.3.w is very strongly opposed to oversubbing anime shows, because it’s a waste of our time and it doesn’t help leechers. As long as there is a group that we think can do a great job on it, we will let them do it.

  • Hakushaku to Yousei

We’re thinking about this one. We’re gonna have to see the first episode though.

  • Kannagi

This will be another “watch the first episode and see” decision.

  • Yozakura Quartet

Same as the others.

  • Kyou no Go no Ni (newly updated)

Last resort, etc…

Definitely not doing next season

  • Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka

Another group that we respect is doing this show, so we feel that it is in good hands.

  • Clannad After Story

Eclipse is doing this, so no need for us to do it.

  • ef: a tale of melodies

Mango was just trolling Kristen (leader of Chihiro). Normally I would have green lighted this show, but Menclave did a great job on season 1, so I will expect them to do the same on season 2.

  • To Aru Majutsu no Index

Same as Akane Iro.

  • Junjou Romantica 2

Obviously we’re not doing this. Go to aarinfantasy if you want this.

  • Skip Beat!

One of our staff members is doing this with another group, so we are not doing it out of respect. This looks like it’s gonna be Special A version 2, so I don’t want to do it anyway.

  • Vampire Knight Guilty

lol no

  • Nodame Cantabile: Paris-hen

Plenty of other groups from season 1 plan to do season 2. We don’t like jumping on a series if we don’t do the first season.

  • Hyakko

Another respected group is doing it.

  • Any other shows not listed above

Conclusion
Ran
Chaos;Head
Rosario Capu2

We will probably pick up one more show from the “maybe” list. We’ll have to wait and see. This is by no means a final list. The shows you see in the “maybe” list are just shows that looked interesting to the staff. We could end up adding one that isn’t on there. So feel free to recommend stuff that you don’t see on the list anywhere. We will add them accordingly.

    OMFG THANKS!, I was pretty scared from the first post…not that I’d ever admit before.

  2. Yozakura Quartet is in my fall list. I hope it’s good.

    Well I’m happy you guys are taking a shot at chaos head because “I didn’t really want to see chihiro’s subs again” LMFAO 😀 I was forced into a corner when they subbed sekirei but now I feel relieved that a good group will provide subs to a good anime. “Karaoke and less errors ^_^” Thx m.3.3.w Team

    damn it
    i admit, i actually believed mango
    also
    YESSS i love you guys (no homo) for taking on CHAOS HEAD
    you guys are just too fking awesome

    also, thanks for haruka as always 😀
    i hope that you guys are also able to take on toradora if that other group does not sub it. though, it would be a lovely surprise.

    THANK YOU TUN for the heads up

    Um if you don’t mind telling me which group is the one you mentioned who will do Akane Iro / To Aru? Tnx.

    setsuna, they trust us to not reveal their plans, so we will respect that trust by letting them announce it if they so choose. This is a courtesy extended between groups so that we can all plan our seasons.

    ok nevermind then ^_^

  8. What? Not Mouryou no Hako (Goblin Box) which has already started in September? My thumbs up for Yozakura Quartet. After entering some odd shows in our review wiki, it looked the best that wasn’t another sequel to an existing show. Who’s doing Tytania? Kemeko Deluxe!? Kurogane no Linebarrels? Michiko to Hatchin which look like as fun as Coyote Ragtime Show.

    Yay for Chaos;HEAd… no terrible Chihiro Subs o_O;
    But i was thinking Menclave is doing this show too…? + ef

    Out of your maybe list I’m hoping Toradora follows the light novels because it would be great, if it doesn’t it’ll be ZnT level fail. The manga for Kannagi is a lot of fun so I see some hope there. And one that’s not on your list and seems to be flying under everyone’s radar is Kemeko Deluxe! I think it has the potential to be Seto no Hanayome level good, but thats just my two cents.

    And the fansub wiki is a good place to plan your season setsuna(http://fansubwiki.com/Who_Subs_What:_FALL_2008).

  12. setsuna, they trust us to not reveal their plans, so we will respect that trust by letting them announce it if they so choose. This is a courtesy extended between groups so that we can all plan our seasons.

    since they are a group that u guys respect, i hope they will do a good job on Akane… since i really have high hopes for it…it is an anime with a powerhouse cast.

    7:16 pm on September 28th, 2008

    If this is a double comment I’m sorry. I don’t know what’s going on.

    Anyways in summary …
    Hakushaku to Yousei — YES!!

    Possible project, but wait for the first episode ’cause it’s not your usual genre, but the butler guy’s kinda cute — KURO SHITSUJI (TBS, late Friday night. Kind of ItaKiss’ time slot)

    yay for getting R+V Capu2. ^^

    “If” you wont be getting ToraDora! what group will get it? Hope you’ll get that. I mean you guys are one of my fave fansub group coz you have animes that has my interest.

    IF I’m not mistaken, Chihiro did post that they’ll be subbing Chaos; Head or are you guys on joint with them? =/

    ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME

  18. kouk2002
    8:47 pm on September 28th, 2008

    Awesome, was looking at chaos head for a while already added to my MAL profile as watching, so its great to hear you guys are doing it, along with shinsen and eclipse you guys fast became one of my most used groups, and for good reason, great shows and professional job(wonder if professional is right, i mean whenever i buy dvds the subs always seem worse than the fansubs, well you know what i meant by it, high quality and standards)
    Also just want to say, although i know what you mean about chihiro, i dont think its fair to bash them for the work they did, i watched the avi of sekirei and yea a few errors and a few v2s, but even m.3.3.w sometimes have v2 releases. Also they werent the only group subbing sekirei.
    Im happy with the other confirmed as well, Rosario was teh show that first brough me here, and as for ran im already counting the seconds til episode 14, i just cant wait.
    Also added word of thanks for pretty much defining the list of shows i will watch in this coming season, i think only 2-3 of those listed didnt appeal to me, but will probably try anyway.
    And lastly a huge thanks for this one, i really enjoyed it did seem a little short, but a good for me was no other romantic interest was really able to get in the way, which im glad as i hate interferance. Anyway thanks and keep up the good work.

    No, I just have a personal history with Kristen.

  21. First episode of Hakushaku to Yousei was great so far. x’3
    I hope to see a sub soon. :’D
    It would be really nice. ^^
    If you were to pick this up I have no doubts that you’ll do great at subbing it! ;’p

    LAWL @ that VKG comment. Haha~ x’D

    Also the other three from your “maybe” list are also in my waiting list. :’D
    I’m gonna watch the first episode too and see. x’3

    Hahaha… reading all the comments from the two post were very funny. Thank you for releasing Haruka.

    As for the fall season… whatever makes you happy. From what I see, there’s a couple of sleepers out there. Hopefully, you can snag one and really treat us to a solid fall season.. ^_^

  25. That kind of sucks that Haruka is over already. It had a good ending, though.

    How about Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae ?

    Oh God… someone get me a new harddrive quick, 1TB to be safe!
    Lots of promising shows and judging by the quality of shows covered last season, this season will be just as great. I would just like to say, loving the works done so far and looking forward to another terrific season.

    P.S. – I’m quite serious about the harddrive :)

  36. Jin
    1:20 am on September 29th, 2008

    wow,im super happy that Hakushaku to Yousei is in your possible list.I hope the 1st ep will turn out good so u guys will sub it XD
    you guys have worked hard

    I really have to thank you guys for doing such an awesome job with Nogizaka~ easily my favorite series of the season.

    Won’t be long until I’ll be needing another hard drive, too~ about 110GB remaining, haha…
    This Summer’08 season was absolutely stellar, and judging by the Fall lineup, we’re in for another epic season!

  39. Hakushaku to Yousei would be great … i hope you’ll do it

  40. Miggles
    1:58 am on September 29th, 2008

    what the heck was that ending on haruka? shiina just got quietly swept under the rug. sure, yuuto finally picked up on the connection with that magazine, but he never tells haruka. we can presume he would tell her eventually, but i was seriously waiting for that reaction from her since ep 2. ignoring that, it was pretty good. now i have to go on a hunt once again to figure out what to watch for another season.

  41. Yrag
    2:12 am on September 29th, 2008

    Thanks for the list guys,
    looks like its going to be another great season of anime from you.
    Just one thing is it possible for you to update the list with your recommended fansub groups once they announce that there subbing it.
    Anyway thanks for all the great subs you’ve done this season and i look forward to watching your Fall subs.

  42. micxz
    2:16 am on September 29th, 2008

    on Haruka end, wish there will be an OVA what happens after. And for Shiina too, she was just left out not even invited in the party. =3=

    Shiina = MOE

    MOE ~<3

    2:50 am on September 29th, 2008

    Thx for subs, and one question – will there be secon season of haruka?

  46. How about a m33w menclave joint for Chaos Head ? Wouldn’t that be interesting for the first time ?

    I wish Kannagi and ToraDora would be subbed from you guys. =)

  47. ^^
    4:16 am on September 29th, 2008

    “How about a m33w menclave joint for Chaos Head ? Wouldn’t that be interesting for the first time ?”

    *_* nice idea! *vote*
    Chaos;HEAd is over subbed… ^^°
    m33w, menclave, Buttered-toast… (Chihiro is no Sub Group for me)

  48. Japfreak
    6:44 am on September 29th, 2008

    Wow… Glad that you guys are picking up Chaos;Head… I was so worried when I saw that Chihiro was going to do it and I still see no news from others =D

    Really hope that you guys can do Hakushaku to Yousei, it seemed that very little groups are working on this and it seems pretty interesting ^^

    I love so much the novel °ç°

    I also watch CHAOS;HEAD, it look very good ^-^

    It’s almost Oct so your April Fool’s joke is late by a few months, or early if you’re looking forward to the next year;) So ef really did get f’cked up? lol Chaos;Head sounds scary & pervy at the same time. Maybe I’m just thinkin’ bout another head? lol

    I’ll be missing quite a few good series like Geass (absolutely terrific ending), Macross Frontier (kinda mishmashed all karaokes together, ending not that great), & Itakiss (as far as I’m concerned, I’m treating ep 24 as the final & the last 2 as omakes so that doesn’t ruin it for me). Somebody prepare the bedpan cuz it’s gonna be a long poo storm after this season. The only anime I’m looking forward to is Gundam 00 & a little bit of Nodame for musical romantic comedy.

    We need anime with soul, new stories and woah effect. I hope, I find so a anime this semester, maybe here and when not it gives 2nd seasons of good animes. But 100% not R+V capu 2.
    Let´s hope summer semester is better.
    oh yeah thanks for all the subbing work.

  60. taikobo
    2:54 pm on September 29th, 2008

    I´m here again maybe good looking new animes this semester:
    ga-rei-zero, dark butler, Shikabane-hime Aka, Hakushaku to Yousei
    good secend season:
    nodame cantabile, gundam00, Jigoku shoujo
    PS:I mean winter season and not summer :_)

    4:05 pm on September 29th, 2008

    I feel so SAD that Nogizaka is over.. Hope another season will come one day.. or a least a couple of OVAs would be so delightful..

    by the way, I’m curious at who’s the subbing team with your member for SkipBeat? I guess I have to stick to this group for that show.

  62. Nogizaka’s over :( I was expecting a different ending to this one, oh well. Thanks for it. I don’t usually watch shows like it but it intrigued me ^^

    ToraDora! sounds pretty interesting and i’m also looking foward to Yozakura Quartet even though i’ve never read it. Well let’s see what you all stick to next.

  63. ru-chan
    5:31 pm on September 29th, 2008

    6:28 pm on September 29th, 2008

    on the chihiro being shite front all i can say is at least there not as bad as gg or bss they take the art of fansubbing and ruin everything that has ever been considered as skill or ability with there utterly rubbish subjobs and crappy footnotes that prove they have no real interest in the anime subbed except as a way to take the piss.

    glad your doing chaos head and hope u grab a couple more shows if u have the time.

    I want to ban you from this website

  67. serenity
    8:12 pm on September 29th, 2008

    “m.3.3.w is very strongly opposed to oversubbing anime shows, because it’s a waste of our time and it doesn’t help leechers.”

    Some that doesn’t seem believable with the pick up of Chaos;Head. There’s like 4 groups now, not to mention menclave themselves, I believe, as well.

    no, they won’t

    5:16 pm on September 30th, 2008

    Do you know who is going to be subbing Vampire Knight Guilty? I really want to see it…
    oh! and I’m looking forward to Chaos;head 😀

  73. Rurouni
    5:28 pm on September 30th, 2008

    Thanks for your subbing. I’m looking forward to whatever project your going to do, since I usually watch all kinds of genre (except yaoi).
    And why is there so much hatred for certain fansub group? I don’t mind a mistake here and there as long as I can still enjoy it. The fact that these fansub group doing what they do is just amazing regardless of the result.
    Lastly, why are you doing Chaos;Head? I would imagine that at least some groups would pick it up, and even the genre somewhat different from what your group usually do. I’m not against it though.. just a bit curious. I’m definitely going to watch your Chaos;Head sub.. and Ran… and R+V2 :)

    We’re doing Chaos;Head because we felt it is no good group’s hands, etc, also, 俺の嫁

    11:42 am on October 1st, 2008

    Well, if you guys were counting on Chihiro to sub Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka, then I hope you heard they dropped it. That leaves Osu!, Mayu and one other (name escapes me atm) to do.

    Would you guys mind taking it up? Chihiro dropping it meant that there will be no hardsubbed XviDs :( and some of us prefer that over .mkv and .mp4.

    Unless of course, this is some lovely joke by Chihiro and you guys or whatever. >_<

    but ateast Rosario + Vampire Capu2 is being subbed ^^
