I might end up turning this into a personal blog of mine. /chuckle.

/cough

Anyway. I was browsing along GotWoot’s? Forum page (now dead like this site is sometimes) and I saw a “post” that kinda triggered me but made me think at the same time; thus brought up the topic that “Fansubs Are Not Dead Yet, Well Not Currently ™.” – Updated as of Aug 2021

With the current trend of things, like easy to access sites such as, Crunchyroll, Funimation, Aniplex, Hulu, Netflix etc. The idea of wanting to  ‘sub’ “current seasonal shows” then yeah, it’s pretty dead in the water.

That lead me to my main topic at hand, “Why Aren’t Fansubs Dead Yet?”

Truth be told, (and i’ve always thought this way since 2006-7), that if all shows were subbed (no matter how bad OR old they are or if they fail to bring in money from DVD sales) I would be truly happy.

It’s like the MLK jr way of thinking: ‘Judge an a fansub by its merits; not by popularity, action, or clout.’

Basically no matter how bad or old the show is, it should deserve a sub.

TL;DR – I, as an old Gen Y, an old boomer / ex-fansubber, etc, etc, do this because I, myself, love anime and I want to see a show get finished even if less than 10 people download it.

I do it not for clout, download count, or fame. I do it so that one show will get noticed amongst the many others.

I do hope from the bottom of my heart, you’ve enjoyed my little rant and appreciate that what we do is for the sake of you, the viewer.

The blog itself won’t change. I want you to see our past work and appreciate the process has gone through to get there (of course I’ll have to reupload pictures etc, but we’ll get there one day).

I even may (eventually) change out how the site looks but my standards will never change.

As shows i’d like to sub, here they are in no particular order:

  • Rakugo Tennyo Oyui
  • Tetsuko no Tabi (official v1 with typesetting etc –> may move to dvds after I buy them.)
  • Gakkatsu S2 (and maybe S1)
  • Akahori Gedou Rabuge Tai

Anyway thank you, for the many years you’ve spent with us, and I hope that you’ll continue to support us in the future. Even if we may take another hiatus again.

While I didn’t update the site (/chuckle – and yes that’s still in motion). I am opening up positions if you are interested to help fansub older shows (pre-2012 era). Instead of doing mIRC like hipsters, we’re going discord.

Feel free to join and lurk! – m.3.3.w’s discord!

It’s been years since I’ve updated this site, but looking back at it, I feel a strong attachment to the thing / thing(s) I loved. Which of course is Anime. What I’m hoping sometime in mid / late 2019, this site will get an overhaul and I’ll come back and start re subbing where I left off at, starting with the very first anime I translated myself (borrowing a bit of Chinese), Himesama Goyoujin.

After that, I don’t know but I know this much… I hope that I’ll still continue what I love when I see this post… months, if not years from now. Updated or not, I hope that I (we) continue our dream and sub stuff that has yet to be subbed to the English community, even if it is shit.

To those of you, who worked with me. Thank you. And those I made an impact too, I hope that one day you as well push forward and continue the dream.

I can’t believe another year has passed! Sigh. Well, although we’ve been pretty lackluster this year, hopefully next year will be a bit kinder to us. We do plan on sticking around of course, just with a new coat of paint and all… Still the friendly, loving m33w and “quality QC” you’ll always get from us.

*chuckles*

Anyway, I wish you a early Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Well, this year didn’t go as well as expected but truth be told it was a blast. And while there ain’t plans set in stone yet for 2015. I still want make some time for ya’ll guys and do some old skool shit (that has yet to be licensed – as I write this day) and some new skool junk as long as the crew is willing to do it. Wish us all the best and let’s keep on trucking through 2015 and beyond! Happy New Years!

There might be some small changes being strung about, but mainly it concerns itself about future releases. Be it in soft (ass) or hard (afx), I care not how I deliver that as long as I deliver them to ya’ll. My love has and always will be anime, and if that is gone then I might as well hang up my hat, and move on to something I like more, like video games.

That being said, whether it’s new or old, don’t get mad at us if we do it one way and then the opposite the next. If you don’t like what we do there is always another group you can download. Either way this is what will happen in the future, so take it for what you will.

But I will continue to sub anime old or new, no matter how big or small the series is. As long as it grabs my interest anyway, and as long as my love for it still exists.

m33w will be taking a vacation this upcoming season, and probably next season (we’ll see how that goes), but in the meantime we’ll be finishing all the projects that were left over for this season. There will be no project left untouched or incomplete.

That being said any and all older projects will now be up for grabs after the workload is done.

Currently since I’m offline (temporary using a monitor at this moment) due to my screen taking a crash and burn session, I’ve left all my work to Kuroten and Unit.

We will finish and most of all we will make sure to bring you the best of m33w all the time.

We wish you a happy new year from us to you. I hope that this upcoming year will be equally as prosperous as the last. As we continue to push on forward to another year I want to note some shows that will (I hope) eventually be completed within that time frame in no particular order:

Himesama Goyoujin DVDs, Getsumen DVDs (corrected errors), Tetsuko no Tabi DVDs, Charady Daily Joke, Kuruneko, PaRappa the Rapper, Fighting Beauty Wulong and Rebirth, Animal Yokocho, Cooking Idol Ai Mai Main, Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel (OVA/TV series), Kenyuu Densetsu Yaiba, Master of Epic: The Animation Age, Kyou no Asuka Show, and Gakkatsu S2.

It’s a mouth full, but I hope within time and God willing, I will be able to conquer these like our current projects with ease.

Have a blessed and wonderful 2014.

After finally deciding what to pick. Here are our choices for possible projects that we’ll be picking up in Jan 2014. Of course in no particular order.

Nourin
Mikakunin de Shinkoukei
Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda
Nisekoi
Onee-chan ga Kita
D-Frag!

Dropping PuPiPo!, (May pick it up if no one does it, as naisho will drop if CR takes it) and taking up Robot Girls Z under Kindergarten Subs (which the two promos are almost done), an anon suggested post after a failed troll post attempt from Cthuko Subs.

Ah yes, we are still recruiting! If you think you have what it takes and like to fill in a spot feel free to stop by #m.3.3.w-recruit and contact me or Saoen!

Looking for new fresh faces to join #m.3.3.w and help us relieve the old. Don’t know about the new but we’ll see as time comes. Feel free to email me at dog (underscore) man (three two) at hotmail dot com. If you put it all together you’ll get the actual email.

Now what I’m looking for is nothing special. I’ll teach you the ropes and get you started because I have plenty things I want done but have yet to be did. So that’s where you come in. We’ll take you in our family and see how things go. Where you wanna be, grow and prosper too. Don’t worry if your unmotivated I’m sure to find SOME way to motivate you back again.

Again taking all positions. You can be new or old, fresh or retired, or have the drive to step up and make things move by the touch of your finger. We’re here to make that all possible but it starts with you.

Feel free to email me but make sure you put in the subj m33w recruitment otherwise I’ll delete it. Good luck and best wishes.

Korokun.
