No double release. It took a long time to get the work raw ready for episode 8 because there was a problem in the transport stream.

Seto 21
xess has been busy, so no work has been completed on this episode as far as I know.

Rosario Capu2 09
Still stuck at editing (me). I realize it is a Mizore episode, but I still have no motivation to edit the script. Maybe I’ll do it tonight if I’m not feeling so lazy.

Negima OVA 02
Mango-chan dumped the project onto asagao, who is busy until Spring Break, so it’ll be a miracle if we ever see this completed.

Munto 08
Waiting for Mango-chan to time the episode.

As for our recent slowdown, it’s really down to me and xess. xess is back at school and no longer has time to translate full time. He can barely manage enough time to do translation check for Munto. As for me, a lack of interest in both anime and the fansubbing scene is the culprit. I’ve been losing a lot of interest in anime over the past few months, and that has obviously affected my fansubbing motivation. The evolution of the fansubbing scene has also crushed any remaining willingness to continue fansubbing seriously as fansubbing elitists would like to call it. I’m still gonna try to finish up the projects I have remaining, but I’m basically a retired fansubber at this point, and have been for a couple months already.

I have no idea what m.3.3.w has in store for next season, but we’re not going to announce any project beforehand. We have to stop committing ourselves to projects that we end up disliking, so we’re gonna actually watch the show and decide on the spot whether to sub it or not. Hopefully we can get back to our generic romance bullshit that we’re known for. I think subbing all of this non-romance crap has played a role in my loss of interest in fansubbing.

    Haha I’m happy enough with episode 07. Thx a lot!

    Thanks for subbing this. Only two more eps to go guys… and the Munto movie of course *wink*, but that one won’t be out on DVD anytime soon. I’m guessing October 2009.

    Anyhow, keep up the good work. I wouldn’t be able to fully enjoy this if I had to watch the raws, so I’m really grateful. =)

    Actually, I volunteered to take on Negima. It will get done, just not right now — finals are next week, and I’m already borderline failing one class.

    Also, tun, if you see a *good* romance anime next season, please tell me next time I’m on IRC, I’m pretty sure I saw nothing… or at least not much.

  4. Good to know that you have not yet picked projects to do…(stupid
    the truth is I just want you guys to do good projects that people would definitely like….unlike the not so popular ones. oh yeah I have a question for the encoders…what are the filters that you use when encoding xvid’s and what is the matrix and profile you use also….

  5. wait!!!!!!!!
    Munto or Sora wo miageru shoujo no hitomi ni utsuru sekai(typed that without blinking) has only 9 episodessssss!!!???

    pls tell me it’s not true…

    Nogizaka haruka no himitsu has a season two hehehe…

    @ Dude from Hell: Yup, 9 episodes is what we’ll get. That, and a theatrical feature this spring (April/May). Add another six months to that and it’ll probably be out on DVD/BD.

  8. *Still sweating profusely*
    Ok, enough with that….I guess they probably have limitation in budget (no wonder Kyoto oanimation did it anyways)

    First of all, thanks for the release.

    It would be nice if you guys _only_ subbed one show next season.
    Less stress on you guys, faster releases for us.
    I really appreciate your works, please don’t call it quits. Take it easy!

    I’ll suggest NHnH for the summer season.
    And for Spring? Natsu no Arashi looks fairly interesting and fits m.3.3.w’s romance criteria (though Shaft maybe fairly painful to typeset)

    Good luck guys, I’ll be watching!

    Thanks so much for subbing Munto! I’ve really enjoyed your releases. 🙂 Don’t give up hope; go to a spa! 😉 lol. Arigato!

    No, dont decide yet the show for next season. You guys should take a look for the episode, before decide it. If there is no good show for the season, just leave it blank, through out the season

    But before u do that, i believe it would be wonderful if you finish your unfinished works.. [Negima, Seto, Rosaria etc]

    Take it easy man, dont rush, slow n steady

    First. Thanks for ep. I would not watch it anytime soon, though.

    Second. I like most of your shows and hope you continue doing projects you like the way you like. Community should go to Hell.

    Best wishes, good luck and have fun.

  14. Go for it m.3.3.w!
    yes give us more romance (and specially eccHi) XD
    and thanx for the Munto-7 😉

    I’m from Clip-sub, a Vietnamese fansub team, we used your scripts of Seto no Hanayome to translate them into Vietnamese ^_^. We’ve just finished this series, but I don’t like Your-Mom’s translation. So, may I join your project team to finish this series as soon as possible? I can typeset (But I don’t know how to use AFX :P, I’ll upload my scripts later).

    By the way, thx for all your hard work, I like R + V capu2, too ^_^

    Adding more staff to the project doesn’t make it faster, unfortunately. Contrary to what the post says, I have time to check munto and the slowdown isn’t caused by me. I complete my work on munto within a day, always.

    Seto however, is a different story as I’m the designated translator on the project. I’m not a fan of Seto and I took on the project begrudgingly because no one else wanted to do it and I had a lot of free time in January. It’s not January anymore though. I don’t exactly want to do Seto either to be honest, so there’s a good chance nothing may get done for a long time.

    It was not a project I chose, and I really don’t know how we came about doing it. To me, it’s just… I’m really sorry to say this, but it’s honestly an unnecessary burden. That’s all.

    thanks for the release *thumbs up*

    hmm…before i post V(down) –> sorry if i’m asking for the impossible

    how about subbing:
    tayutama, tears to tiara in april?
    (^ both of them: made from ero.. game
    there should be romance scene in the anime)

    Thank you for episode 7. I can wait as long as it takes I love Munto! Thank you for subbing it (even though you don’t like it.) That show blows my mind and it’s the kind of anime I have been waiting for. M.3.3.W=Genius.

  22. OhYeah
    9:24 am on March 12th, 2009

    @xess: It means “Drop” =.= !? So bored, but with me, you team are always the best 😛

  23. elle
    9:28 am on March 12th, 2009

    why don’t m.3.3.w just skip the next season? It will help you to complete all of your burdens and forget about them with ease. You’ll also get some real rest. And hopefully this will help your motivation for subbing to get back by the summer season ^^

  24. ^^

    Tayutama -Kiss on my Deity-

    That would be nice~

  25. nya
    11:15 am on March 12th, 2009

    from reading the posts of the group members, it seems like m.3.3.w will be disbanding soon. I will always be grateful to you guys for subbing True Tears, Itzura Na Kiss, and R+V season 1, you did an excellent job on those. And quite frankly nothing has been worth watching since those shows. Chaos Head was good at the beginning but the show went downhill after the 3rd episode. Japanese story telling really sucks and is so cliche.

    Goodbye m.3.3.w may you find joy in your future endeavours.

    I’m sorry.
    I’m usually quite happy with your translation, but this time.. there were a lot of small, irrelevant flaws, but one thing really stuck out at me – please, *please* replace “spirits” with something else. “spirit”, maybe. We’re not talking ghosts here.

  27. nya
    11:34 am on March 12th, 2009

    You should start a fansub group since you’re so picky.

  28. Cheer up! This season to be honest was full of crappy anime. Next season should be WAY BETTER!

    Hope you get back your motivation!

  29. Baughn
    1:47 pm on March 12th, 2009

    You’re allowed to be picky even if you don’t want to replicate the work yourself. It’s called “constructive criticism”.

    2:16 pm on March 12th, 2009

    sigh only 2 more episodes… and i can understand why your mad at the lack of romance, especially since this series was supposed to have some; BUT i’m 100% thats what the movie will revolve around, not going to spoil why i think that but like i said, i’m 100% sure the munto movie coming next month will be focused on the romance (that is if the info on it being the finale to the anime is true)

  31. Light
    2:50 pm on March 12th, 2009

    Ah anyways tks for the episode and its always good to test the waters of a series such as watching episode one or reading some of the manga before deciding to sub something. Haha anyways when this gets released looks like m.3.3.w’s territory

  32. asagao
    5:27 pm on March 12th, 2009

    Light, we actually do usually read the manga/light novel source (well, one of us does) before we choose a show. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always work — remember Rosario and Vampire? Manga =/= Anime.

    funimation has already subbed Negima you can watch the videos there for free

    These are not the Shiroki Tsubasa Ala Alba OVAs they are talking about.

  36. xess
    4:30 am on March 13th, 2009

    @Baughn, spirits? I think it’s all right. I figured it should be obvious that ‘spirit(s)’ in this case meant emotion or heart, etc and not ghost or soul.

  37. If I were subbing Rosario+Vampire and Munto, I’d be losing interest, too. I’ve been watching everything you guys’ve made since you took over the last half of School Days, but this is definately a dry season for you guys. Munto’s okay, though. I even finally started getting interested in it around episode 6. But it’s kinda sad it took that long.

  38. Maureen
    5:15 am on March 16th, 2009

    I certainly hope they are not disbanding. I have been following you guys for over a year now and I love your work. I know some people have complained about “speediness” of the releases but I think your subs are worth the wait. People can’t expect you guys to do a ligntning fast turn around all the time. You guys have LIVES. If you were getting paid for it it would be a different story but you guys are doing this out of love for anime. I appreciate that.

    I look forward to next season!

    Please finish subbing munto! The series, in my opinion, is awesome! I really appreciate the effort you guys put in, so please hold on just a bit longer.

    ( . )( . )

    Get motivated! Get motivated! Get motivated!

  41. just some ideas for projects for next season that might be worth looking into:

    Hanasakuru Seishounen:

    No one is currently subbing this (based on the wiki) and it’s a sort of reverse-harem centering around some political intrigue and bishies.

    Hatsukoi Limited. :
    Lots of pretty girls and isn’t being oversubbed (just AniYoshi tied to it right now, and they’re kinda slow)

    There’s also Mecha Motte Iinchou, which I think is a cute shoujo show: Currently no groups tied to it. Tayutama and Natsu no Arashi have 3 groups on them but those are also romance shows as well.
