This rant by the way is completely off the cuff. I’m just straight up ranting to rant. So enjoy the ride.

Just an update like many sites. Fansubbing in general has been dead quite some time ago. HorribleSubs died sometime mid-pandemic of 2020 as of this post — but now SubsPlease has replaced them. Which is a good thing for those who need their fix.

That being said, with the current trend of easy to access site such as Crunchyroll, Funimation, VRV, Hulu, Netflix, HIDIVE, HBO Max etc. Then yeah it’s pretty dead in the water. I mean heck I went to older groups and asked them why they quit. And pretty much the most popular answer was RL, lack of volunteers and why work for something that is illegal? But do I sound like a goddamn shill? Damn right I do, and I’m proud of it.

But that lead me to my original question, “Why Aren’t Fansubs Dead?”

Truth be told, (and thought this way many many years…), that if a show that wasn’t popular brought to an English audience and licensed? You bet your sweet ass I’d buy it! But here we are. Years has passed and few shows have YET to be subbed. Groups like Orphan-Fansubs with the main head Collectr, who’s older then dirt (I kid, I kid.) STILL go out there way to sub unpopular / unnoticed / unlicensed (etc. and so forth) shows for the masses like you and me who want to watch more anime.

And truth be told, I’d drop this **** all together if I could just have a source easy to access to watch (e.g. one or two subscriptions because god forbid you have more then one) and support companies like this THAT bring in anime for me to watch, then hell yeah, I’d quit fansubbing.

But you know what? I pushed myself to do something impossible. I relearned all the steps from scratch. And I too want to make an impact in this world. No matter how small or BIG it maybe. I want to show you that the love of fansubbing (and anime in general!) is not dead nor will it ever be if you love something enough.

Learn this, never say “you can’t” but only “you can.” Something like that. Not good on words and all. But yeah, had there been easy access sure, we all know this is a grey area and all… Hurts the sales of businesses, blah blah blah. But if said anime was made it visible (no matter how crappy it is) and easy to access AND IN ENGLISH (or just subtitled), I’d be happy as hell!

Alright. Guess it’s time to address the elephant in the room.

As I relearn this ‘stuff.’ The moonspeak. The stuff you need as a fansubber for quality and workable material.’

Then sometimes yeah, you know? Those sites streaming the anime? They’re hot goddamn garbage. And I don’t blame a group going out there way to fix editing, timing, typesetting (ehhhhhh), adding karaoke (ehhhh too, however still not hard for you to do this Crunchyroll.) and encoding. Which is honestly an encoders’ worst nightmare. (They sleep and breathe encoding. And if it’s not pixel perfect you’ll see a many angy faces.)

But I’ve been ranting for a good minute now, however, you gotta understand that there’s ‘reasons’ why people do what they do. Like, if it was good, but you know not perfect but you know, ‘actual goddamn people who look at the video before releasing it…’ Then yeah, sure, I mean there would be less of us and more subscriptions. Even though we’ll find a way to ‘stream it for free, etc.’ We will still do our best to support you as much as we can!

But still I want you to know this… As of 2022, while I stand here in a grey area split; divided by both black and white, I want you to know that still, I support and believe in streaming… DVD sales and all that. To release those rare and unusual titles that we don’t see often. As I say that, you know, if there are times if I must roll up my sleeves and get dirty, so be it. And damn to those who stand in my way!

So, like I said last year (2020), I do hope from the bottom of my heart, you’ve enjoyed my little rant and appreciate that we’ve done in the years past and what I will do for you in the future to come.

As for the blog itself, it won’t change. But it will get an update.

The old m.3.3.w. fansite will still be here known as (Miscellaneous Enlightened Entertainment Works), but THERE WILL PLAN TO BE, a new rebranded site (built within this one) called m.3.3.w fansubs, however THAT name will be renamed as (Memorable Evocative Entertainment Works). Still m.3.3.w, just with a different name.

The links after everything is done will go to the new site, while I still have our old site up and running so you can see our old posts (uh, not sure if they’ll be witty or not) and past work and appreciate the process that WE have gone through to get here.

As shows going to sub. Here they are in no particular order:

  • Rakugo Tennyo Oyui
  • Idol Tenshi Yokoso Yoko
  • Robot Girls Z & NEO
  • Gakkatsu! Season 2

And yes, while the site my change. My taste and standards will never change. But there will be one day I will hang up my hat for good. If that time ever comes you will know. – MrCatFord. #newthingstocome2022

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.


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.

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei
Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda
Onee-chan ga Kita

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.
