Hello everyone. I’ve got a short update post for you guys.

Hatsukoi Batch Torrents – I forgot about these, so I’ll post them tonight when I get home from work.

Rosario 12 and 13 – I’m hoping to finish off episode 12 tonight since I have nothing planned for this evening. My weekend is looking slightly busy but hopefully I can finish 13 tonight as well if I don’t slack off.

Hanasakeru 11-13 – Ichigo69 says he will edit episode 11 soon, but he’s still being a bum. xess finished translating episode 12, so it’s on to asagao to do a TL check. Episode 13 still needs to be translated by xess.

Seto 21 – No progress. Still at TL check for asagao. I will make more of a concerted effort to try to find a translator that can read Japanese text since I have the Japanese manuscripts for the remaining episodes. Count this as a semi-recruiting post. If you’re interested, please respond to this post or contact me on IRC.

Summer shows – Just to make it official, we will not be doing any of the newly airing summer shows.

Fall plans? – We will definitely be doing Nogizaka Haruka season 2, so please look forward to that. I haven’t looked at any of the previews or summaries for fall season shows, so I can’t comment any further than Nogizaka S2.

    Glad to see that you haven’t forgotton about Seto. πŸ˜›

    I agree with your sentiment, nothing really seems interesting this season, maybe Canaan, but even that isn’t in the genre that you guys sub.

    Looking forward to fall. πŸ™‚

    you deserve a break, the only show I am watching is Aoi Hana anyway, and it is just a typical yuri, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu is the only new show I really am waiting for, since they announced the second season, I hope it is on par with the first.

    It should since all the original staff and production company along with the original director and voice actors are back to work on it, so my fingers are crossed

    I won’t say you have to sub it, I will just say I love your work, and will watch what you put out, if it is the type of show I like,

    I was really hoping you guys would pick up Sora no Mani Mani. Princess Lover as well, but more for Sora no Mani Mani. That’s because it’s the slice-of-life, school romance anime. I thought it fits perfectly onto what shows m33w picks up. I’m quite shock that being a romance fan Jaka is, he did not pick this up. Not even CoalGuys. Guess Jaka now ventures into thriller, mystery and killing animes…. (Umineko, sub-par as compared to Higurashi)

    Anyways, have a nice break, you guys have been diligently fansubbing. It will be well deserved.

    hmm… Im waiting for R+V…. I want to complete your version and burn it for good.

    BTW, I think I can give you guys a hand in translating the rest of Seto no hanayome eps. Im not that good but if its a text, I think I can do it.
    you can contact me trough my email since I cant use IRC(blocked by Uni)

    you might wanna try mibbit: http://www.mibbit.com
    It’s a web-based client that, afaik, runs off of port 80, so it should work, but who knows…

    still hoping against hope that you’ll team up with Ayako to do Spice and Wolf II. because BSS isn’t doing it and the only group doing it right now is Mazui, and it really is mazui.

    Thanks for the updates. I’m waiting patiently to the Hanasakeru episodes. πŸ™‚

  14. If you guys can’t find a translator for Seto in a month, I could at least ask one of my group’s translators would like to help. I don’t think I can really guarantee anything, though… :C

    Tiexandrea, I like Spice and Wolf too so I tried asking but “we don’t do s2 when we didn’t even do s1.” I tried, also did you know StillDaggerX was one of the TLers? I adore him now lolz. If you’re reading this, I <3 u.

  17. Beefy, sometimes people don’t tend to understand the “Contact me directly msg,” so this is going directly to Risette and whomever reads this, we owe you nothing we’ve been doing this freely and will still continue to do this freely. We may not have the time avail to release it all in a timely fashion however the job will be done, and will be done fully. If any translators feel they can be assed enough to do the task then they get their butt online mIRC “contact” me (Korokun) directly or tun and we will talk things out. No half-assing, no it might or might not get done bullshit. If you’re going to take the job make sure you fucking do it to your best ability.

    Sorry for my rant but that’s how I feel, and that’s what asa has been feeling for a while. He’s been busy and just ‘haven’t had the time.’ We all been there, so please give us a break and we’ll get it done when we can, but again if there is any tlc/tl who would like to take up the task feel free to contact either of us. But if you can’t be assed to do it, don’t even fucking bother.

    Aaah… I apologize. I realize I had worded my comment very, very poorly, and did not think clearly.

    I’m sorry for offending you and the others. (And that I cannot get on IRC for a direct apology).

  19. It’s okay, as long as you know it’s half the battle. Get Sysreset or just d/l mIRC and come idle with us on #m.3.3.w at irc.rizon.net.

    See you there soon!

    lol yeah, rereading that comment i came off sounding like an asshole instead of willing/hopeful to help. ugghh i hate that. ΰ² _ΰ²  Wow.

    I’m going to bed soon, so I’ll try and see if I can get IRC to work.

    In case anyone still gives a s**t, Seto has been TLC’ed (I finally got off my lazy a** and checked a couple lines). It will be released…

    …when it is released.

    thanks for subbing the hanasakeru seishounen it’s one of my favourite shoujo anime this summer. I hope you guys can find time to sub the remaining episodes. i tempt to watch the raw versions but then again sub is much, much better so i decided not to.

    btw, it’s good to see that others are looking forward to the next episodes.. πŸ™‚
