To all the wonderful guys and gals that have supported m.3.3.w and made my time here wonderful,

Life has finally gotten to the point where I simply can’t get all my real-life obligations taken care of and also sub anime at the same time. Lately, the only reason why projects have been stalling is me having conflicts working with classmates on projects, or as bassist for my new band, or chasing after girls, and subbing has taken a backseat. I don’t want to give you fans any less than you deserve, so in the interests of keeping releases up to the quality I know you’ve all grown to expect from us, I’ve informed the group that I am resigning as translation checker for the group. The only active project this affects is Kimi ni Todoke, and unfortunately, we don’t have a backup TLC, so we’ll be dropping the project. I’m really sorry about this whole disaster, but for the first time I feel like I really have a chance with a girl (not just mai waifu, Tohno Minagi), and I’m in my last year of college, so the projects are really difficult this quarter. Before you ask, no, we can’t just release the subs omitting the TLC stage — the quality subs you get are a result of several revisions to the script, and until we find another subber fluent in Japanese, we feel that the sub quality would suffer too much without my input. You might also wonder why I’m resigning, as opposed to just becoming inactive for a quarter or two until my schedule opens up again — and this is a valid point. I dunno what to say, anime just isn’t as appealing to me anymore. I mean, I was never a huge anime fan, but lately all these plots are starting to sound too much the same. Also, tun and xess aren’t around anymore, and they were sorta the reason I stayed around as long as I have. The new guys and I just don’t get along the same. Overall, I just can’t get as pumped to TLC stuff as I have been in the past.

tl;dr — KnT S2 dropped, asagao resigning.

Wish you all the best.

    After reading several “disband” notes all around, I’m SOOOO not gonna fall for the obvious april fools. All you subbers need to do better. Maybe a a troll!sub would be more effective.

    You mean like a troll-release of KnT 10? Can’t fool me into TLC’ing tonight, nosirree. — Love, asagao

    6:29 am on April 1st, 2011

    I falled for everyone disband notes until I read the comments…. I am tired of a hard day so maybe this helps me to understand why I have fallen for every goddamn disband note around on the web =.= … fucking 1. April XD I am so green

    this better be an april’s fool joke.
    Groups are starting to drop KNT (Kazehaya is a tad bit annoying for now, i know:P) and your subs are so good it’s regretting.

    I fall for every possible joke today so this better be another one.

    you got to be kidding us
    m.3.3.w KnT S2 is the best subs so far i known

    @ asagao: Crap, you caught me. =p Oh, this may be totally unrelated to this but, are you guys going to do the second season of Working?

    yet ANOTHER disband notice.
    why hasn’t there been anyone trying to tell an obvious lie. Like Godzilla appeared in tokyo today at 1207 hours Japenese local time

    Unless this isn’t a joke (bad timing then) then I wish you the best of luck

    Had you said that m.3.3.w was going to pull out all the stops to complete their backlog in the next couple of days, and pick up no end of new shows for Spring 2011 … now, that would have got people exited! πŸ˜€

    Happy April Fools’ guys.

    “but for the first time I feel like I really have a chance with a girl”
    this was basically where it was too obvious that this is an aprils fool, wasn’t it?
    nonetheless, I was kinda sad thinking about how you could disband nonetheless Oo just hope you don’t~

    Just a funny note that both KnT2 and MM! would be stalled after episode 9.

  27. Well, MM! had typesetting problems. But it’s very close to being finished right now.

    KnTS2 was inevitably stalled because of the earthquake. We couldn’t control that. If you check Eclipse, you’ll notice they haven’t released episode 10 either, and this is because their were no decent .ts available because of earthquake warnings. I believe we now have .ts, and episodes 10-12 are all fairly close to release: 10@timing, 11@TLC, 12@TLC.

    Thank god this was just april fools >_> or else I’d be sad like the time with Eclipse fansubs.

  34. Yes, soon*.

    Taken from Blizzard Entertainment, but it works for m33w just as well:

    *Soon: “Soon” does not imply any particular date, time, decade, century, or millennia in the past, present, and certainly not the future. “Soon” shall make no contract or warranty between m.3.3.w Fansubs and the end user. “Soon” will arrive some day, m.3.3.w does guarantee that “soon” will be here before the end of time. Maybe. Do not make plans based on “soon” as m.3.3.w will not be liable for any misuse, use, or even casual glancing at “soon.”
