Hi. Long time no see. This update was triggered by a 4chan thread about the CR subs for Nogizaka S2.

There were subtitle encoding errors in the HorribleSubs release, but as a couple astute anons pointed out, the problem of shitty translations remains. Now, I would like to do this show. I don’t particularly care about licensing. The only reason why we aren’t doing it is because Jaka is busy (lazy) with school and has no time to take on any full time project. I honestly have no idea about the availability of the other staff members who worked on season 1, because I barely talk on IRC anymore. Jaka suggested that I simply edit the CrunchyShit subs and fix up the translations where I can. I’m gonna download the first episode and see if doing that is worth my time. If it is, I guess I’ll do a solo project by myself with just the fixed up subs, very basic .ass typesetting (within my skills), maybe some basic karaoke if I can get someone to do it, and someone to encode this mess. If I do decide to do this, you might see the return of a certain canine inclined fansub group.

As for the other shows…
Rosario 13 – As Korokun said in the previous post, this is all on me basically. I’ve edited about 5 minutes of episode 13 since the release of episode 12. This episode is just particularly shitty, which has killed my motivation to do it. I’ve also started working full time so I don’t have nearly as much free time as I used to. I get home from a long day of work and the last thing I want to do is waste my down time on fansubbing. I had nothing to do tonight and I was actually going to sit down and do it, but Windows 7 does not want to cooperate fully with Aegisub. ATI has decided that they won’t want to support my shitty graphics card under Windows 7, so I’m stuck with this garbage Windows 7 basic driver that doesn’t include OpenGL drivers. If anyone of you want to help me find a driver, I have a ATI Radeon x1600 Pro (yes, I told you it was shit), and I’m running Windows 7 64 Bit. I downloaded that Catalyst legacy driver thingy and it doesn’t update my shit. I don’t know what to do. I guess I’ll just hook up my old Windows XP hard drive this week and work on it.

Seto 22 – asagao is taking his sweet time doing the translation check on the script. I guess I can’t complain since I’m being a lazy POS about Rosario. Episode 23 needs to be timed… I don’t think Kile knows yet that he has to do it. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ The translator tried to contact me; I’m assuming it was about episode 24. I missed him though, so we never spoke.

Here is our IRC staff channel topic so you get a sense of how much time/effort we’re wasting.
HS 14: edit @ ichigo(ETA TONIGHT USA TIME) ||| 15: @ TLC apply |Seto 22: v1.1 @ asa, 23: Timing@Kile| Capu2 13@tun || AIR 02-06 @ TLC apply (ETA ep 2 this week); 07-12: TLC@koro || JGD09TL@beef(ETA 9/??-5%) | HATSUKOI SPECIAL 01 UP BD 01&02 SoftTS | Munto movie @ TL | HimeHime DVDs: QC

HS stands for Hanasakeru Seishounen. Yes, Ichigo69 is still wasting time on that crap that’s been dropped for months already. I already lost the fight to get it completed so it’s just a waste of time at this point.

Seto 22 is the same as I explained above. So is Capu2 13.

AIR DVD’s. Jesus Christ, could there be anything more pointless?

JGD is Jang Geum’s Dream. I feel kinda bad since beefy spent (wasted) his time translating the first eight episodes. Korokun even bought the DVD’s so we could release them in Korean audio. I would love to do the project but I’m so wary about starting a new project when I have other projects to finish. If I finish Rosario, I might spend time on this. I gotta re-think what to do with the romanization of Korean because I should technically stick to the revised romanization, but that would mean that names like Kim, Lee, and Park, are romanized as Gim, Yi, and Bak. I’ll think of something though.

Hatsukoi Blu-Rays should have been out weeks ago but they somehow got forgotten/neglected. This is not a priority at all to me, so I’m not really gonna try to get anyone to start/finish it.

Munto Movie is at asagao, so you know that will never get released. Sorry buddy. ๐Ÿ˜›

HimeHime DVD’s are Himesama Goyoujin DVD’s. We took like 3 years to finish this shit from old m.3.3.w and now Koro wants to do the fucking DVD’s. Not my project so I’m not gonna do anything about it.

    good, theres a chance Nogizaka Haruka S2 will survive! a little part of me died inside when i saw CR licensed it, and even went a bit (more) insane.

    I personally don’t really see anything wrong with crunchyroll’s subtitles. I think most R1 DVDs have english subtitles that don’t exactly go with what the actual Japanese conversation is saying. So to flame crunchyroll like that is really unneeded and to some extent, biased.

    @Pig_san

    You are obviously one of the crunchyshit fans. Crunchyroll is a total shit, they know nothing but throwing nonsense explanation (crunchyshit so called LEGAL way of letting people enjoy anime) at others. From what i saw, crunchyshit simply sees the potential of earning money “legally”. I predict many more fansub group is going to continue subbing anime because crunchyshit’s work is nothing but real dipshit. Real fansubber will not be able to endure to see them torture other’s eye

    Magic,
    Please do not feed the trolls.
    Oh, and I deleted the double post…

    Hey ‘tun’: About your ATI driver problem:

    The latest for the X1600 series running W7-64Bit is the WVista-64Bit legacy CCC, version 9.8 (BTW: for XP-64Bit is [again] the legacy 9.8)

    https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2.ati.com/drivers/9-8_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc.exe (for W7)

    I wish I could help you out with translation and other stuff >.<;

    Maybe you can start a survey who wants to help you guys out with haruka. I dont like CR subs and HorribleSubs(the name is their quality) subs :/
    and I love the karaoke from you guys too ^_^/

    oh god, I’d burn down CR if I could. The pain it causes is unbearable. Seeing an anime being licensed there is insanity-inducing.

    Hopefully more groups will go rogue and subs anime regardless of CR. Don’t leave any evidence now….

    I almost dread going to CR to see what they have Vulched for this season. 11Eyes, Fairy Tale and some others now have become CrunchShit stained. Sad sad day

    If it worked out that you could scrub clean some of the Horriblesub’s releases without it taking a TON of time, that would be great. Good luck with Ep1 of Nogi

    If anyone cares to read about this…

    It looks like there is a very high probability of doing Nogizaka because of the following reasons:
    1) It’s something for us to do (active project).
    2) We’ve already done Season 1.
    3) Most of us doesn’t give a shit with CR does.
    4) I kinda kept asking for us to do Nogizaka, it’s one of those Anime that I like. For example, I used to like Ah! My Goddess but that fucking Keichi wouldn’t make a move on Belladandy. God, just **** her already.

    tun was just kidding about us being lazy. We have our own lives you know. Everyone here has either a full time job, in military, busy with school etc. So expect us to always do something but don’t expect us to present you with an episode once a week.

    Disregard this. m.3.3.w will absolutely NOT do Haruka (that’s a 0% exact probability of doing the show). It is a licensed show. Crunchyroll is *legally* licensing this show for simultaneous online broadcast (although I also wish that their subs didn’t fail so badly — I mean, c’mon, do these guys have ears?) Wait for renegade subbers to do their thing; we’re legit. I also want to say that I really *am* lazy, and tun isn’t kidding about that. I have plenty of time, and choose to do other things with it, like chase little girls and play guitar for girls and such. We all (I would like to believe) entered this field of work knowing that it would take time; there’s never an excuse for tardiness. If you’re one minute early, you’re ten minutes late. –With love, asagao.

    Sad that you guys aren’t doing season 2 of Nogizaka. I watched the crunchyroll stream of ep 1 and there was just some terrible mistakes that could be picked up by someone like me who knows almost no Japanese. I mean how do you get cute-boy out of Onii-san or Naha-san out of Nanami-san??

    I cant even understand whats being said here… but go on…

    Come on guys I seen great comments of your work from first season of Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu ( http://myanimelist.net/fansub-groups.php?id=945 )and I love you continue that work so do your best and stand up for subbers.

  31. Personally Id like to see us sub NHNH 2 REGARDLESS of the CR license. But its not my call and the rest of the group stands by this decision so I will stand by them. They are my bro’s after all, well most of them anyway.

  32. xess
    5:18 am on October 7th, 2009

    I guess I should put a word in too. Fansubbing really does need full-time commitment. People only really care if you’re fast and decent. Like why bother if you’re slow and crap, right?

    One of the reasons why I’ve managed to push m33w along in the past 2 years was because I was jobless. Years of unemployment really is a waste of life, don’t do it. I finally do have a real job now, so I don’t have enough hours in a day to complete a script. Though to be honest, as a fansubber, I think I have touched the lives of many more people than my job ever will (for a while at least).

    I’m happy to see that other staff members have stepped up in place of others who have slowed down. I will be around and I’ll see what kinda contributions I can provide to the group, if they actually need me.

    We always need you xess, couldnt do it without you.
    ~Saoen

  33. I wanna see m.3.3.w active again. You guys are one of my favourite fansub groups. CR is crappy, looks like I might have to start watching RAWs now >_<

    I love your guys fansubs and I was really looking forward to Jang Geums Dream I miss watching the anime and I love the drama but if you guys/girls dont feal like doing it I will just sit back and weep silently and bear with it. Thanks for all the good updates.

    I really hope you sub the Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu Purezza. loved the S1 and the subs you shared with us hope the S2 can have the same quality

    BANZAI

    I would love to see m33w do NHNH 2 but with no translator to TL the show and the CR license (Althought licensing doesnt bother me the slightest) it just isnt going to happen, but its okay, I hear some wolves howling in the background.

    Mamiko Subs is utter shit. Not only do their subs make me want to scoop out my eyes with a rusty spoon, they stupidly subbed the horribly censored version…

    @Saoen: wolves howling in the background eh? Are they still in the fansubbing business?

    Of course they are, they were hibernating for a while, but now they are out to feed…or shit who knows

    I rather wait for a proper fansub of Purezza done by a group that cares about the product rather than a couple of sloppy, cocky, shady “subripping” groups (which I shall leave nameless) who just want want to whip it out and tell the anime world how big their balls are and just want to tell CRoll to suck em’.

    I know It’ll take some time but I’m willing to wait.
    Just keep a low pro, alright?

    your not gonna pick up a real project this season?
    pls pls pls don’t disappoint us.pick up a project.

  43. So you guys are lacking a translator for NHNH2? Would you do it if someone apply to be a translator for NHNH2?

  44. xess
    6:34 am on October 8th, 2009

    No, having a translator wouldn’t make a difference because NHNH2 is licensed. This website + many of m33w’s members are from the states (not me though), so I don’t want to get any one into trouble.

    But please don’t worry about NHNH2. The staff are working hard to make sure that there’s a better version of NHNH2 than what CR is offering. It will not be released under the m33w name though.

  45. Glad to hear that. I just don’t want to see a good group fading away ๐Ÿ˜‰

  46. [bullshit]The only reason why we arenโ€™t doing it is because Jaka is busy with school and has no time to take on any full time project.[/bullshit]
