Well, Ichigo stopped being a bum and finally did some work.

Episode 12 is at editing.
Episode 12.5 is a recap episode and should be out the same time as episode 12.
And xess needs to translate episodes 13-16…

Seto 22 has been translated thanks to the help of our new translator kenji. Right now, the script is at timing.

Rosario 12 hasn’t made any progress since last time. I need to find time to edit it.

We will also be doing the Hatsukoi Blu Ray versions, along with those short little ~3 minute clips that are included.

xess edit: CR is simulcasting Hanasakeru starting from episode 16. They will release catch-up subs 2 episodes per week, so it’ll take them about 7 weeks or so to reach ep 14 and 15. We will be subbing it until episode 15 then you can follow CR subs thereafter. For those not living in North America, I’m sure some nice group out there will rip and release their subs for everyone else.

    Can’t thank you enough for subbing these. I was worried that it was being dropped :-( because it had been so long since a release had come out – so thank you for the update on the other episodes too. M.3.3.W. is the best sub group for quality and overall translation – so it’s great you’re still working on this series.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

    thanks for episode 11 of hanasakeru seishounen!

    i’m also wondering if you’re going to drop the series since crunchyroll is going to release it. if you are, i’ll understand; but i hope you at least release episode 12 and maybe episode 12.5 since you already worked so hard on them. or even better to just continue with the rest of the series. :)

  21. Crunchylol? Well, we don’t *generally* work on licensed stuff, so if it’s licensed, you might not see it from us… But if it has not been licensed yet, well, I don’t see a reason to stop, and I’m sure xess would agree that we’re better than anything Crunchyroll could offer on its own.

    Anyway, wait for an official announcement, kthxbai.

    It’s official that Crunchyroll has licensed Hanasakeru Seishonen (tv anime) (see at CR’s site).

    But not everyone can see Hanasakeru Seishonen at CR, because due to particular license issues some countries won’t able to watch it at CR, in other words: Hanasakeru Seishonen is region locked.

    Personally, I really like the translation by m.3.3.w, especially the ones for Hanasakeru Seishonen, Itazura na Kiss, Hatsukoi Limited and Telepathy Shoujo Ran, much more than the translation for the other anime series by CR, CR translations are mediocre at best; some of the lines/dialogues are not literal enough, some are even not the actual translation of what’s spoken in the anime, allthough it just kind of fits that particular situation in an anime episode e.g.; so, CR is watchable, but when you paid for something you expect more quality.

    If m.3.3.w stops translating Hanasakeru Seishonen, I totally respect that, but there will be unknown fansub groups ripping the Crunchyroll quality subs from CR and muxed it together with some raws.

    Anyway, thanks for the fansubs, m.3.3.w,

    and good luck with the future projects!

    some countries won’t able to watch it at CR, in other words: Hanasakeru Seishonen is region locked.

    Actually, the correct sentence would read “Some countries will be able to watch it at CR”.

    The majority of the world isn’t deemed worth of CR quality subs, it seems.

    I just picked up Hanasakeru Seishounen and I wish to thank m.3.3.w for the excellent work. This series has turned out to be surprisingly good. Glad I overlooked the “reverse harem” titles and gave it a chance.

    Continued smooth sailing for the m.3.3.w team!

  26. tripper
    10:00 am on August 3rd, 2009

    Oh, BTW, PLEASE don’t drop Hanasakeru Seishounen because of CR.. most all their stuff is crap and they are (as mentioned by others) region locked.

    So I BEG!!! m.3.3.w. to continue the project, however, as things go, if you have to drop it, we will certainly understand. Best I can tell from anidb, you are the only English team fan subbing this wonderful series.


    PS sorry for double post, but couldn’t figure out where the Edit option was located. :)

    You guys sure love this show~
    I haven’t even watched episode 1. Is this show that great? I guess it is if xess is willing to TL it. Err, I don’t know if I should really say this but whatever~ Things aren’t looking good as of now. But keep hoping/wishing…

    “we poor british people”
    Yeah, the world is not only USA. (/Germany)
    Beside that… i don’t want to watch this horrible Wrong-Name-Translation-Drama -.-

  31. The only other group that I was aware of subbing this announced they’re dropping it. I hope you won’t, but my blog can get by with CR subs if it has to, I guess.
