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.
Hanasakeru Seishounen

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).
Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S

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.

    Hanasakeru Seishounen – Reverse harem with those character designs, definitely not for me.
    Polyphonica Crimson S – Loved the English demo for the kinetic novel this series is based on. While the first series was less than stellar, hopefully the second one can do better adapting the source material. Will be following this.

    Heh great news post. Cant say I’m very interested in either of the shows you guys chose but I’ll still give them a try. Oh and cross game > * too bad the group wouldn’t let you do it.

    “3) The guys are ugly (m.3.3.w only supports healthy relations between a beautiful man and a beautiful woman)”

    Word.

    “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)”

    Even more word.

    “So yeah, Iโ€™ll let you guys come up with your own opinions of the show, but Iโ€™m not looking forward to this anime season.”

    Me neither. The first one you’s picked up has guys that look ghey and as for the other one; I dislike that magic-crap as much as you do.

    Guess I’ll watch Honey & Clover again or something…

    “3) The guys are ugly (m.3.3.w only supports healthy relations between a beautiful man and a beautiful woman)”
    Lmao. But I agree. I don’t like reading manga / seeing anime with characters that ain’t good looking. Art is important.

    I am waiting for Rosario though.

    HERESY! how can you not support healthier relations between a beautiful woman and another beautiful woman(there are no such things as beautiful men anyway)

    shame on you

    rofl!

    My thoughts exactly tun!

    I figured only one subber would end up with Hatsukoi Limited. Though I wasnt to keen on watching it.

    Actually, Im not interested in Hanasakeru Seishounen either. Reverse Harem ftl…

    Noting that Tomatsu Haruka was voicing the female lead for Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S, I considered watching it a few days ago. However its set now, I will watch it! ^_^

    Thank you for the update.

    *goes off to torrent S1 of Shinkyoku*

    Very happy to hear that you’re doing Hanasakeru Seishounen. I was afraid that it was going to go unsubbed. Thank you for stepping in and preventing such a bad thing from happening. :)

    Another craptastic season for m.3.3.w woot. Glad you’re not doing Hatsukoi Limited, you’d just mess it up :D.

    Thank you for picking up Hanasakeru Seishounen! If it keeps faithful to the manga it’ll be so much more than a reverse harem XD.

  20. I didn’t read any of the post information at the top at first. I started at “We have decided…”

    As soon as I got to the bottom, I was like “Hm. I bet this was posted by Tun.”

    XD

    yay for Hanasakeru Seishounen!
    yeah, i tend to watch anime based on the looks of the charecter. if the guys and girls aint pretty forget it. its shallow but…. cmon :)

    as for Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S
    never heard of it but i tend to luv generic magic stuff.
    still hope m33w will sub kobato in the fall :)

    Even though the graphics in cross game is not the best, it has a good plot line, will take something that has a good story over eye candy.

    when I saw Polyphonica, my first thought was of that first series, I almost got through the third episode before giving up on it. Hope this one is better.

    I haven’t read the Hanasakeru Seishounen manga (just seen0 the short summary on AniDB) and from the little I know I’m hoping for a good enough anime that I’ll be able to actually finish. Thank you for releasing this.

    Look forward to it already! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    BTW about how long do you think it will take you release it (just so I know approximately when I can see it)?

    Ugh… You watch Korean Drama? Mind as well turn this into Anime + KDrama fansub… lol. Why am I acting like this? Because my mom watches KDrama 24/7. If you can’t guess by now, I am Korean.

    Here is short announcement for people who might come across this: m.3.3.w will have, instead of only torrent and mIRC, direct download links. Because not many people knows how to use mIRC and torrent is (in my opinion, too slow)

    It’s too bad you guys won’t be subbing it, but I’m going to check out Hatsukoi Unlimited, just to see how they a shoujo manga can be published in Weekly Shounen Jump of all places.

    Ooooo thanks for doing hanasake, I love shoujo and there is just not enough out there subbed.

    I like adachi so I would have loved to see cross game. I guess I will have to rely on the other group but you guys do a great job.

    11:09 pm on April 12th, 2009

    it doesn’t look like /anyone/ worth half a shit is gonna be picking it up and that’s just a damn shame.

    Thank you very much for subbing Hanasake. You guys are the best!

    I also only watch anime and reading manga if the characters look pretty. I cannot stand looking at ugly drawings…
