Hey guys.

Hatsukoi 12 is being delayed right now because we’ve had to transition the server that we use to do our work and store our files. No one in the group is particularly giving a shit, so I’m not very happy. Some people on the staff are also putting the group on the back burner to do other shit.

As for next season, nothing really interests us. We’ll make a more informed decision once we finish Hatsukoi and take a closer look at what’s available. We don’t want to pick something up just for the sake of having a regular show to sub every week. We need a summer break too. πŸ™‚

Ichigo69 Edit: Hanasakeru was being delayed b/c of IRL stuff happening, but that’s over now and hopefully we can get back to some timely releases.

    Thanks for all your work, it is greatly appreciated! I really, really like Hanasakeru (go Jin) … and have found myself enjoying Hatsukoi – when I didn’t expect to. The subs you do are always clean, easy to read, and timely. Thanks again for all your work!

    I’ve been noticing a bit of apathy from the group lately, what with all the late releases. I think it would be good if you guys took a break. It’ll re-energize you guys for the fall season shows. Hopefully it doesn’t turn into a permanent break; it would be disappointing to lose such a great fansub group.

  3. take care and don’t take long!

    if another serious fansubbing group is gonna disband that would be bad won’t it…
    some groups just encode their videos putting VFR
    and wappoints on their videos….unlike you, you guys try to accomodate all of the viewers…thnx

    Yeah, doesn’t look like much of a season. Well, as long as you’re back in fall with more Nogizaka Haruka, I don’t mind you taking a break.

    “We don’t want to pick something up just for the sake of having a regular show to sub every week.”

    Exactly my thoughts.

    If there’s not really much interesting stuff coming out, just take that summer break. You guys have earned it.

    Thanks again for everything…

    Hatsukoi \M/

  12. Hey. its me!
    1:38 pm on July 2nd, 2009

    Take a well deserved break, just because you enjoy something doesn’t mean you can’t get tired of it.

    However before you go on break. i would like to know whats the story with the last Rosario eps.

    I don’t give a damn about the release date of any of your shows b/c base on your guys’ history I can tell you guys will release it and do a good job on it.

    It’s nice to take a break. As for next season… only Princess Lover interest me, other shows are just crap… ecchi madness awaits.

    Thanks for the updates.

    You guys are the BEST!

    PLEASE keep subbing–good fansubbing groups are almost extinct!

    and… PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not drop Hanasakeru…

    Well, you’re absolutely right. This summer show nothing interested in my mind. Of course, taking some break than subbing something not worth it.

    Hope you can release hatsukoi 12 soon and then enjoy your summer break.

    Hey, everyone need some break right.

    [quote=tun]No one in the group is particularly giving a shit, so I’m not very happy.[/quote]

    i hope this was either sarcasm or a joke.

    i’ve been a great fan of this fansub group since Myself;Yourself and School Days, and i can wait patiently like a good fan should, but reading the line quoted above was honestly depressing.

    i’ll be the first guy to put my head on the chopping block and say that i miss the days when i could always count on m33w for consistently timely quality releases and i miss the days when the front page was filled with updates and not excuses. oh well, i guess it’s just the truth of the world that good subbers don’t die, they just find more things to do with life.

    in before “pew pew pew don’t complain they’re doing this for free you noob go to chihiro”…

  20. Why not sub some hentais? A hentai a week doesn’t hurt πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the updates. I agree about the summer, alot of crap from the shows i have seen so far, none that are m33w material anyway.

    I watched Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-chan!!, and omg, seeing a girl repeatedly piss themselves aint entertaining, sadly i did laugh once or twice at other things though. I then saw Aoi Hana, right after it, and saw another girl pissing themselves, though her age at the time made it a little more acceptable, but still. I looked up a few other titles, and watched a few others, nothing great so far, im hoping Haruhi and When they Cry turn out good, though neither strike me as m33w material.

    Personally i would like to see Rosario and Hatsukoi finshed off before your break. Then again i cant lecture anyone, my friends want me back on WoW and want to watch anime instead, so im doing what i want to do πŸ™‚ So long as Hanasakeru Seishounen remains on your list im happy(and yes i did see the post stating your not dropping it). Enjoy your break.
