The twelfth and final episode of Earl and Fairy (or Hakushaku to Yousei in Japanese). This final episode took a while to do since people were a little busy over the Christmas/New Year break. I’m quite happy with the work we’d done on this project. It was quite decently done, in my opinion. The show itself too was pretty enjoyable for me. There is still much story to be told with Earl and Fairy, so perhaps, there’s some hope for a second season. Unfortunately, I don’t think the show is popular enough to warrant that.

Also, the first volume of the DVD is out, which includes the first two episode. We’re releasing that too. The DVD encodes will only be in h.264 in the matroska container. The OP and ED themes are in separate files, in a system we refer to as ordered chapters. It may not work well with all players other there, but it does save a lot of diskspace and bandwidth for us. To get it to run right, we recommend using a player like Media Player Classic and along with a codec pack like CCCP or K-lite. Those have everything you need to play those files. If the h.264 performance isn’t up to scratch, download CoreAVC h.264 decoder. It’s efficient enough to run 720p files smoothly on low end systems (albeit one with a decent graphics card). Earl and Fairy DVDs aren’t in 720p, though, so don’t worry about that.

Next, I’d like to thank everyone who helped me with the Earl and Fairy project: asagao, ichigo, BiGGuY, and ThaEagle. The ones who helped distribute the releases: Waryas, xshadowfire, Kile, and all you seeders. Also to the QC team and whoever I missed. And lastly, to all of you for watching and your positive comments. Thank you.

Lastly, as for other projects, KgnE OVA 04 will probably be ready shortly. Capu2 is moving… slowly. Negima OVA 02 is not moving at all. One Outs… I think it’s safe to say we have to drop that. Well, look forward to next season’s project, I guess. I don’t think I’ll personally be translating any projects next season, since the line-up is too small, and I might be a little busy. Either way, I’ll be helping mango do Munto, I suppose. That’s all, enjoy.

    Thank you so much for subbing the Earl and Fairy series. It’s been a joy to watch. I wish it had run longer. I hope there will be a second season, but I won’t hold my breath for it.

    I’m grabbing a copy of the episode 12 release. Then I’ll grab a copy of the DVD releases. I’m a little confused about what you said regarding the separate OP and ED files. But I’m sure I can figure it out eventually.

    Once again, thank you for all your work!

    Thank you so much for your work on Earl & Fairy, guys! Without all of you, a lot of people wouldn’t have been able to watch the show with Eng. subtitles because I never did see any other group working regularly on it. I’m glad you guys did – I was very happy with your work on Special A and true tears before this.

    I have really enjoyed this series. Thanks again.

    There’s obvious quality difference in Hakushaku to Yousei’s TV and DVD, but besides that, anything else?

    Also, the ending was really confusing, or as xess said, has a hell lot of stuff missing. Good stuff regardless but doesn’t exactly top anything.

    Finally… R+V DVD censorship… wth?!

    Thanks for completing this one!

    But what happened to Seto no Hanayome D= ?
    I’ve been waiting for a good group to finish it for a year now and there are still only bad subs for the end.
    And that anime is actually really good.

    I’m not trying to bug you, but a status update would be nice..

    I’m really glad you worked on Earl and Fairy because I think you did an excellent work. The great quality you offer is still amazing. The differences between those TV release and DVD release are stunning! Thank you for sharing those too.
    It’s a pity the show isn’t popular, though I know it’s really not liked enough. But it does need a second season. Earl and Fairy is worth 24 episodes to be clear. Too many questions are left without any answers. But well, I enjoyed it a lot, thanks to you!
    Happy new year!

    Thank you for the releases. Job well done with chaos head (only one I was following), and it seems earl was a good series so I might pick that up.

    Do you guys know if you will be subbing White Album? Seems to fit your style…

    Thanks again!

    I completely adored the series although it still feels like some unfinished business. I really really hope they have a second season. I <3 Edgar.

    Thank you very much for the subs :)

    Thank you very much for the excellent quality sub. You guys have done a great job.

    Earl & Fairy easily became my favorite show. I only found out that it was going to have only 12 episodes around episode 10. I was thinking that was impossible to conclude the anime within 2 episodes, and my guess was right. There is so much to explore and to reveal, that I really hope they make a second season.

    My sincere thanks to m.3.3.w for bring us the opportunity to watch this anime.

    Excuse any misspelling, as English is not my native language. Just for you guys know, you have a Brazilian fan.

    A little late, but Happy New Year!

    Thanks so much for your hard work on this series!! It is beautifully subbed, and I hope that you guys will do the 2nd season (if there is one). I plan on downloading all of the DVD releases so that the series will look extra pretty when I watch it again in the future. How often are the DVDs released, anyway? Like once a month or every 2-3 months? Just curious. Thanks again for an awesome job!

    Thanks for all your hard work, i probably won’t be getting the DVD versions due to my limited bandwidth allocation but I would have loved to see the series in all its glory!

    I really enjoyed E&F despite the slow start – you did a fantastic job with the series. It’s a shame it’s so short…..well, I’m off to watch the episode now! Thanks again~

    Thanx 4 The Subs on this series, it was a good one despite what other people said. They just had continued it from episode 12, they weren’t thinking. This deserves a season 2 to finish everything and leave un-answered questions.

    On another note, why make a ecchi show and censor it, it’s like hentai with bats covering the good parts LOL. Mha bad for that one, still gonzo is just loosing it.
    Thanx again 4 your AWESOME subs

    I typed to fast and saw my errors

    I don’t care if people didn’t like the series, I liked it and so did other peeps.
    They should have continued the series into what ever episodes they needed. Leave un-answered questions… answered.

    ecchi note was for R+V/CAPU2

    not to complain or anything, but animesuki is listing ToraDora! 14 and keeps redirecting me here and I don’t see it listed any where on this site ;_;
    not sure what’s going on or if you guys know about it, but I thought I’d leave a comment letting you know.

  49. asagao
    12:14 am on January 12th, 2009

    I *believe* that this has been resolved. It’s not a big deal anyway — basically, (and you should know this, neko, since you’ve been visiting for a while) we’re not working on Toradora, and that’s it.

  50. ANIKI
    12:37 pm on January 14th, 2009

    Toradora! is subbed by CoalGuys, qq, AnimeYoshi(i think).
    Thanx 4 Ran, I liked it… is this series over or is there more(second season). cause usually after the final ED they say thanx 4 watchin or the end. See Yha Latter usually means a possible second season but no plans yet. Thanx 4 subbing Ran and Chaos once again, JAANE~ (>.<)b
