First, I’d like to state that any rumours of our (m.3.3.w’s) death have been greatly exaggerated.  Protip, people: Koda likes to troll.

If we ever decide to pack it up and close shoppe forever, then we’ll announce it here, on this blog.  This goes with any series that might be dropped.  We will always communicate with you guys about stuff like that.  And again, I’d like to re-emphasise the fact that, if we haven’t announced, on this blog, that we are dropping a series, please consider that series to be active.   Some series might take a bit longer to finish than others, but they’ll get done, eventually…

Anyhoo… As you probably know already, we finally got out the DVD rips for Earl and Fairy and, while there was no new content, the quality of the video is quite superiour to the TV version.  If you want to see some comparison shots, go to BiGGuY’s site.  Keep in mind that there are separate files for the OP and ED in a system we refer to as ordered chapters. It may not work well with all players, but it does save a lot of diskspace and bandwidth.  Just use CCCP and all will be well with life, the universe, and everything.

Here is the link to the Batch Torrent:  Earl and Fairy DVD

    Kinda amazed myself that people are still taking announcements from a trolling and unreliable group like gg seriously.

    Anyway, looking forward to more NHnH in a month or so.

    Yeah, well, Koda’s a first class troll, but I wouldn’t call gg /unreliable/. They generally do a decent job. I personally don’t like how they over-localise everything, but the translations and encoding are usually pretty good.
    It seems like koda’s going out of her way to declare to the world ‘I AM NOT A WEEABOO’! Like anybody really cares….

    that’s what I really like about m33w, I can rely on the fact that you announce anything important. Thanks for the batch, your hard work and keep on rocking :) Would really be a shame if m33w disappeared, but well, luckily there’s no need to assume that this’ll happen.

    The unreliable part was more referring to the fact that they’ve ragequit and dropped their projects twice, leaving at least me hesitant to follow several of their projects at once since I hate switching groups.

    I also agree with you on the over-localizing part, which I find somewhat jarring. Aside from that I agree they’re decent enough.

    how bout rosario + vampire da capu 2? are you all gonna release the dvd version?

    We currently have no plans for it. Mainly b/c Nobody wanted to do it in the first place and we’d have to re-do all the typesetting, etc.
    My guess is that somebody will release the DVD and/or the Blu-Rays with m33w’s subs…

    Since I’ve been AWOL from m33w for a week or three, I’d like to make some minor updates myself.

    I haven’t done anything in the last month in fansubbing, but that doesn’t mean I’ve quit.

    It just means that I’m slow.

    But please don’t say that I am lazy,
    Because hontou wa crazy, etc.

    I love your subs, and I can wait a long time for them if nescesary. I still wait for the final episode of Rosario to Vampire, and I have no problem with that – just release it when you’re ready.

    Live long and prosper!

    Thanks guys, I consider you a quality group. And I appreciate the effort, quality and dedication m.3.3.w brings to this crazy corner of the world.

    I am usually out of the loop because I don’t pay attention to most of the crap out there. I respect gg as a group but get the impression they are a little raw on the social IQ scale.

    Even if you guys don’t plan on doing the Rosario dvds I hope you guys at least do the last episode.

    Okay, for the umpteenth time…..

    meh, fuck it…. I’m not gonna even go there.

    can you disclose the source?

    r1, r2 ?

    source??? haa???
    um, if you’re talking about DVDs, we usually use Region 2 Japanese DVD’s but your question doesn’t make sense, because neither Earl and Fairy nor Rosario + Vampire have any license outside of Japan, I believe…….

    By the way, I thought I’d mention, that CCCP (09-09-09) and CoreAVC ( may have some issues running together, leading to what may seem like an unfixable error.

    The way I fixed it (which may not work for everyone) was to uninstall CoreAVC and CCCP, then install CCCP *first*, and CoreAVC second. Don’t ask me why this works, I don’t know and I don’t care (I suspect that updating CCCP when CoreAVC is already on the computer does something bad and explosive -_-).

    or…. you could just use CoreAVC instead of an old version like Asafail does

    Just wondering what other proejects you guys may be doing this fall because there’s alot of new series and I’m hoping to see you guys pick up something, since I don’t know which are good/bad except for Darker Than Black S2/ Fairy Tail. Could you guys make an official post eventually please, and thank you.

    so far all we’re doing this fall is Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu S2, but yeah, if we decide to pick smth else up, we’ll let you guys know…

    Oh, btw, Darker than Black and Fairy Tail wil NOT be done by us. ^_^ You can get AonE|Menclave’s subs for DTB-S2 and god-only-knows-who for Fairy Tail.

    Somehow I missed Earl&Fairy initial release… What a fun anime! I really enjoyed watching this.

    Thanks so much for the release!

    Thanks for the E&F batch! I downloaded them again and will keep seeding for a while, thanks for giving us the better quality version :)

    What I like most from m33w is the way you always announce stuff to us. That customer service (if you want to call it that!) doesn’t go unnoticed, I appreciate it!

    ((If you were to sub Konnichiwa Anne sometime I wouldn’t complain 😛 but it’s best you guys sub what you like in your own time, considering you do it for free!))
