And here’s Hanasakeru Seishounen Ep 03. We were slow this week due to your favourite cbox camper, asagao, having to fulfil some real life responsibilities. Namely, school work. Enjoy the episode.Download: Hanasakeru Seishounen 03 (XviD) - [Bittorrent | IRC]

Here is Hatsukoi Limited 02. We got delayed a couple hours because the QCers refused to QC it because we changed projects from Polyphonica to Hatsukoi. Typing in capital letters and name calling ensued. QC was completed.
ThaEagle has been busy lately so he hasn’t been able to do the typesetting for Rosario 09 and 10. But when he finishes, they will be out soon after. 11 was translated, but is now waiting on translation check and timing.
I have about 48 hours to finish a 8-10 page research paper, and I haven’t even started it. Wish me luck.

Whatever happened to Mio, Mango-chan?

Gawd, I am so furious at the moment. The group had intentionally delayed the release of the episode again, because it didn’t have the blessing of my blog post! The SQL server was down! The website was down! What if it stayed down for 2 days? What if I didn’t log in? It just happens that I woke up 30 mins earlier today so I have time to write this rant.
I was planning to talk about a joke we did, but I don’t feel like it anymore. Either way, this is episode 02, introducing the new character Eugene Alexandr de Volkan.Download: Hanasakeru Seishounen 02 (XviD) - [Bittorrent | IRC]

We’re almost done with Hanasakeru 02 as well and it should be out tomorrow.
So in the end, we decided to go with Hatsukoi Limited instead of Polyphonica. Forgive us for the confusion caused. Although Polyphonica does seem like the more suitable choice, our translator preferred Hatsukoi Limited, so we’re going with that instead. Sorry, Polyphonica fans.
In summation: Hatsukoi Limited – yes, Polyphonica – no
Hatsukoi Limited is not some yuri harem despite how misleading the website looks. It’s about multiple intertwined love stories, written and illustrated by the same manga artist who brought you Ichigo 100%.
Brought to you by m33w team mango, please enjoy the show.
P.S. This is the Polyphonica script. Since it’s mostly done, why not release it? [Script]Download: Hatsukoi Limited 01 (XviD) - [Bittorrent | IRC]

We’re pretty much done with Polyphonica, but we’re gonna wait until the first episode of Hatsukoi Limited airs before we decide what to do. None of us are particularly interested in Polyphonica, so we’ll give Hatsukoi a chance before we finalize our 2nd project. If Hatsukoi really does suck, we’ll release Polyphonica. I’ll be working on Rosario 09 and 10 tonight. That’s all for now.
New season, new shows. Our first release of the season is Hanasakeru Seishounen. I wasn’t planning on subbing anything this season, but I just got too bored and decided to do it anyways. Hanasake is slated for 26 episodes according to NHK’s website.
So why did I choose this as one of our projects. Well, just by looking at the first screen on the website and its title which literally translates to “Flower blooming young young men,” I strongly doubt that other subbers would jump at the chance to work on it. One of our philosophies at m33w is to try to avoid oversubbing since there really aren’t enough English fansub groups around to cover all the series if like 5 groups do the same show.
Hanasake is also a shoujo (and not yaoi), a rather unpopular genre amongst the male dominated fansubbing scene. m33w has at least 20 active staff, none of whom are female. So that gives you the idea of the ratio. However, girls do make a very large percentage of the anime viewing population, and is possibly a little left out unfortunately. After all, we were the only ones to sub Itazura na Kiss, Special A and Earl & Fairy to completion.
The story revolves around 14 year old half-American, half-Japanese Kugami Kajika, daughter of the Burnsworth Corporation, who must choose a husband from three men. It is based upon the manga of the same name, which spans 12 volumes. It has not been scanlated into English. Only the first chapter has, but the translation leaves quite a lot to be desired. You’ll notice rather large differences between our subs and the scans despite having identical dialogue for the most part.
Our releases are in standard DVD resolution for the mkv version (sortove), and 396p for the avi one. The karaoke is soft-subbed, so you can switch it off in the mkv version if that pleases you. The songs are performed by Korean singer, J-Min. She doesn’t even have a wikipedia article, so I guess she must be pretty new. But check our one of her songs here. It’s pretty good, in my opinion. You will find that the OP kara is not translated. This is because the song is partially in English and partially in Japanese. In other words, the average Japanese viewer won’t understand it. You can enjoy the same experience as them in this case.
Lastly, please don’t complain about “say/speak your piece.” That is correct.
Hanasake 01 is brought to you by the same m33w team who did Earl & Fairy. Also, a special thanks goes out to Vincent and Shinsen Subs for providing us with the raw. Please enjoy the show.Download: Hanasakeru Seishounen 01 (XviD) - [Bittorrent | IRC]

We have decided not to do Hatsukoi Limited. This decision was based on the following:
1) J.C.Staff sucks
2) The manga sucks
3) The guys are ugly (m.3.3.w only supports healthy relations between a beautiful man and a beautiful woman)
4) While not technically a typical shitty harem anime, this one has a lot of characters and many interconnected relationships (Like true romancefags, m.3.3.w only supports monogamous relationships between a man and a woman)
5) AniYoshi is doing it (yes I know they’re even slower than us these days, but what can ya do)
So this is what we ended up doing:
xess revealed his true nature by suddenly uploading a script for episode 01 of Hanasakeru Seishounen. After much name calling and yelling, the project was approved and work began soon after. I haven’t watched this
gay fabulous show yet, so I can’t comment. You can take a look at the AniDB site here.
Earlier this evening, Mango-chan tells me to edit Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S. I’m like, lolwut. I remember watching the original series named Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica, and I remember it sucking. A lot. So I download the raw and determine that it is the same generic fantasy/magic harem bullshit like its predecessor was. For those of you that don’t know, I hate fantasy/magic shows. So after an hour or so of complaining about every single detail about the show, I stop being tsundere and agree to edit. The main female character is voiced by Tomatsu Haruka, who is best known for her work as Nagi in Kannagi, so how could I refuse? This will probably be out tomorrow (later today).

So yeah, I’ll let you guys come up with your own opinions of the show, but I’m not looking forward to this anime season. I wanted to do Cross Game since it’s a baseball anime and it’s so kawaii, but no one else wants to do it. The 1980′s art style will also turn people away. Which is a damn shame because the first episode will make you “KYAA!” and bury your face in your pillow like a
faggot teenage girl. Till the end that is. I won’t give it away, but you will be raging like no other. Some new group is subbing it, but I have heard less than stellar reviews.
As for Rosario and Seto…
Seto 21: xess finished translating this a while ago, but asagao has been too busy to do a TLC. So it’s sitting at TLC for the foreseeable future.
Rosario 09 and 10: Both are still stuck at editing (me). I’ve been going on a Korean drama binge lately, so anime and fansubbing have taken a back seat. I will find the motivation to finish these episodes eventually.
It is almost 4:30AM and I really should have gone to sleep hours ago. Good night.
With Easter only a few days away, I’d like to take this opportunity to make a happy announcement. Easter was the day when Jesus came back to life. It is also the time when Waryas returns from the dead. With his godlike powers, he’s made a complete recovery and is alive and well. (truth: He came back from a holiday in Luxembourg)
It seems that his friend and cousin pulled a fast one on us, and we all fell for it. Either way, we’re all relieved that it was merely a joke, although a really distasteful one. Waryas had a lot of fun reading the comments, and was wondering why everyone was asking if he was dead.
Anyways, happy holidays. And I hope you enjoyed this year’s April Fool’s. I wonder what we’ll have next year.
