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

Almost forgot about these.

The twelfth and final episode of Earl and Fairy (or Hakushaku to Yousei in Japanese). This final episode took a while to do since people were a little busy over the Christmas/New Year break. I’m quite happy with the work we’d done on this project. It was quite decently done, in my opinion. The show itself too was pretty enjoyable for me. There is still much story to be told with Earl and Fairy, so perhaps, there’s some hope for a second season. Unfortunately, I don’t think the show is popular enough to warrant that.

Also, the first volume of the DVD is out, which includes the first two episode. We’re releasing that too. The DVD encodes will only be in h.264 in the matroska container. The OP and ED themes are in separate files, in a system we refer to as ordered chapters. It may not work well with all players other there, but it does save a lot of diskspace and bandwidth for us. To get it to run right, we recommend using a player like Media Player Classic and along with a codec pack like CCCP or K-lite. Those have everything you need to play those files. If the h.264 performance isn’t up to scratch, download CoreAVC h.264 decoder. It’s efficient enough to run 720p files smoothly on low end systems (albeit one with a decent graphics card). Earl and Fairy DVDs aren’t in 720p, though, so don’t worry about that.

Next, I’d like to thank everyone who helped me with the Earl and Fairy project: asagao, ichigo, BiGGuY, and ThaEagle. The ones who helped distribute the releases: Waryas, xshadowfire, Kile, and all you seeders. Also to the QC team and whoever I missed. And lastly, to all of you for watching and your positive comments. Thank you.

Lastly, as for other projects, KgnE OVA 04 will probably be ready shortly. Capu2 is moving… slowly. Negima OVA 02 is not moving at all. One Outs… I think it’s safe to say we have to drop that. Well, look forward to next season’s project, I guess. I don’t think I’ll personally be translating any projects next season, since the line-up is too small, and I might be a little busy. Either way, I’ll be helping mango do Munto, I suppose. That’s all, enjoy.

Hey guys, hope you’re having a good holiday. I know I have, which is why there isn’t much fansubbing work getting done. 😀 We’ll be slowing down the pace in the upcoming days so that we can spend time with our family and friends. Most of us will still be around and we’ll work slowly on our projects as time allows. As for my finals, I didn’t do as well as I thought, but that’s okay. I’ll just have to work a little harder next semester. Till next time. :)

I have my last final of the semester today, so I’ve been busy studying for that instead of pushing this along. 😮 It’s in about 4 hours, so I’m gonna go study for it a little more. Rosario 07 should be out later today.

As for the actual episode, there was a bit of Engrish in there. You’ll see it when you get there, but we actually translated what Edgar said, as opposed to what was actually written.

I know you fanboys have been waiting for this one. We somehow got everything completed earlier this week. Now, we didn’t cut corners or anything to make this come out faster. We put in the same number of man hours as we had in previous episodes. People just happen to be more free this week for some reason.

Either way, I was asked to talk about some of the phrases we use in the episode. Are you all familiar with the phrase “steal a march”? I was fairly certain that this was quite common, but others told me otherwise. Anyway, one of our staff, Clephas, gave a very good description of its meaning.

“Usually is referring to a general who realizes an enemy’s advantage before that enemy does and eliminates it before the enemy can use it. Or when two people seek the same thing and one pushes himself to get ahead of the other.”

The second one is Blue Knight Countess. Why Countess? That’s because there’s no feminine form for Earl. There’s no such thing as an Earless or whatever, so the Count version is used for women.

Enjoy the episode.

I know you fangirls have been waiting for this one. Pardon our general slowness. There’s not much we can do about it.

As for One Outs, it really does look quite unlikely that we can continue it. There’s just not enough time and manpower. Please watch B2E’s releases. And, just to make it clear, I wasn’t angry with them or anything. Why should I be? I was just kinda annoyed that they didn’t release their first episode one day earlier to save me the trouble.

Anyway, enjoy the release.

Not sure what else to say, except, it’s finally here. It’s starting to become quite a bad habit.

Episode 05 kinda starts a new arc. Something about the moon and such.

As for the other shows, Chaos;Head should be here shortly. It has actually been at the encode stage for the past 3 days. Talk about maximum fail. As for One Outs, I’m strongly considering dropping that as we clearly don’t have the manpower capable of handling so many projects.

Anyways, enjoy.
