Hi guys. Wanna venture a guess as to why we’ve delayed Munto this week? We’ve actually had the episode ready for several days, but it never got released… Believe it or not, because they didn’t know what to write for the blog post. I was actually waiting to see how long they’ll go without releasing without the blessing of my blog post, but I think they finally realised that it wasn’t released yet today. I wonder what kinda excuse we’ll come up with next.

Incidents like these have really sapped the motivation of our translator, who’s usually extremely fast. But he’s slowed down to a crawl now to match the speed of the others.

More often than not, it’s not that we’re working slow. We usually get things done pretty quickly, but somehow, through negligence or forgetfulness, or just simply bad management, our complete scripts – yes, complete – are simply left on the FTP doing nothing. I blame the economic recession, even though it’s completely unrelated to us. Just needed something to blame.

Here are some wonderful excerpts from IRC:

<ThaEagle> ep8 encode where?
<`Jaka> everything airs on the same day
<`Jaka> isn’t 8 released
<`Jaka> already
<Rika-chama> 8 isn’t released???
<ThaEagle> it is?
<Rika-chama> LOLWTF???
<Rika-chama> LOLWTF???
<rika -chama> LOLWTF???
<`Jaka> jesus f***
<Rika-chama> GOD F**KING DAMMIT
<`Jaka> i saw
<`Jaka> the
<`Jaka> torrent
<`Jaka> LOL
<Rika-chama> IT’S BEEN READY 2 DAYS

Anyway, on to the show. I really don’t think it’s that hard to look for something to say. Like for example, episode 09 will be the final episode of Munto. Yes, it’s only nine episodes. It’s a pretty poor show in my opinion. It had some nice storyline, but it just kinda dragged on with nothing much really happening. If I’m not mistaken, this is KyoAni’s only original IP, as in produced and written by KyoAni in-house. They should keep it that way. Enjoy.

    I agree that it is not a great series, but I’m enjoying it and it’s a nice expansion of the OVA.

    Are you going to pick Konnichiwa Anne in april season or will be left without any sub for it subs again ?
    So far it doesnt look like anyone wants to pick this

    Al of your sub choices have been really meh as of late. I would say Itazura Na Kiss was the last series from your group that I’ve enjoyed and have actually watched from beginning to end.

    You guys need better scouting lol. Better still, Japanese animators need to learn how to tell a good story.

    I’m pretty disappointed with how this series is panning out, it had potential but has just ended up going nowhere. Ah well. Thanks for subbing it!

  10. Thanks for the episode guys.

    I know how you guys feel. I’ve done exactly the same thing and not released something for the leechers because I didn’t know what to write.

    Anyway, much appreciated and great work as always. ^^

    The ova s of 2003and2005 relate directly to this show in 3 episode blocks, according to anidb a movie is due for release in April, this could be a 3rd part ending of the ova set and you may find you have already translated it all so it may be an easier (quick) project for you

    Thanks for subbing this (no-one else has)

    Well, don’t blame us for poor choices. We always try to sub what others don’t want to. And I guess you can see why others don’t want to sub it. Well, just tell the producers to produce better stuff.

    Does anyone notice the zen buddhism influence in this anime?

  17. yes! that damn “economic recession” 😀
    thanx for the release guys 😉

    C’mon. You guys are m.3.3.w, the same group that everyone cried over when you decided not to stay with BakaWolf. The same group that has released some pretty damn high quality subs. I’m getting tired of that same group making excuse posts over stuff.

    You guys can do this. Humans have step foot on the moon. Polio has been cured. A black guy, of all things, got into presidential office, when not even 50 years earlier was having a Catholic president the biggest upset of old Whitey.

    And tun can’t barely find the motivation to get his subbing act together another episode.

    Thanks for your hard work sadly i thought this series was a waste, i was wondering when well get the rest of Rosario vampire 2

    Rosario is in tun’s hands. As we all know tun is pretty much fed up with fansubbing atm, but he is determined to finish up Rosario. So you will have to wait untill he muster up some willpower and finishes editing ^^ /ThaEagle

    The only reason the Munto series sucks is because KyoAni didn’t take the time to develop an anime that was really good in the beginning.

    The fist two OAVs were amazing and had so much potential. All KyoAni wanted to do was make a quick buck and decided to slaughter their original brainchild.

    Waste of time. If they were going to ruin the damn thing, they shouldn’t have touched it. Now there’s a movie. Oh God.

  23. So disappointing to hear that it is only 9 eps. 🙁

    The parallel world setting was nice, the characters have great designs and are memorable. There could have been so much more they could run with on this series.

    Truly a shame. Thanks so much m.3.3.w for subbing this! Looking forward to ep 9.

  24. Guys no matter what u are still subbin this show for us ^^ That’s enough to make me happy ^^

    Thank ya all~

    Thanks & i really hope that you take the subs seriously for next month ^^
    (but don’t too serious until you guys get sick..ok?)

  26. thanks alot 🙂

    Thanks for the subbing of Munto TV ^ – ^.
    I would have but one question.
    On a website I read that on April 18 a cinema Flim from Munto in Japanese cinema comes.
    This movie is the 10-13 episode of Munto TV ._. ?
    Will you also subben the movie?
    Or. is that really the case?

  28. xess
    6:55 am on March 23rd, 2009

    We will consider doing the movie. And yeah, we believe it’ll be eps 10-13 in a way.

    I’ve been waiting for the torrent and I guess I’m one of those peeps in the IRC that didn’t know it was out a few days ago. xD

    I’m happy that they’re makin’ a movie and it’s the continuation after the series…
    but why didn’t they just add them into the series? O_o Good gawd.

    Anyways…I need to download my Munto8. x’] Hm hm~
    Thanks as always, you guys! :’3
    -thumbs up- ^w^

    Further to my previous post, why are you thinking the movie will be eps 10-13, the anidb entry for it ends with “The film is a director’s cut of the climactic scenes with new footage.” this points to a re-hash of eps 6-9 as they were never released and would bring the ova set to a similar conclusion to the TV set.

    As you have stated, this anime company only has Munto as their sole in house creation – is it not good marketing to make 2 existing ova into a short series and then use the series (after it re-ignites viewer interest) to finish the ova (2 complete releases for slightly more than the cost of 1)

    Sorry to be so cynical but it will have taken them near 7 years to tell their story, they will probably want maximum income from it

  31. xess
    6:27 am on March 24th, 2009

    If it’s a rehash of eps 6 to 9 like you say, then that lowers the chance of us subbing it by a lot. Going through it once is plenty.

    7:56 am on March 26th, 2009

    The producers seem better at ova cuts so checking what they release would probably be best, I hope you haven’t forgotten ep 9 (like last week) you guys are in a better position to comment on what this show is like since it finished airing on the 11th and you have seen it, until you release I like many will be waiting hopefully.

    Thank you for working on and through this

    On another note another group (coalguys) has also commented on losing motivation due to a series (Akikan), before retiring try a short of a genre you like if this helps don’t stray far from your road
