This show is pretty ridiculous.

Ridiculous fun, that is. Enjoy!

Release: Black Bullet - 01-02

Written on 16.04.2014 | Tags: Release, Anime, Black Bullet, Kinema Citrus, HD, 10-bit

And here's our final pickup for the season. We debated about whether to do this or not for quite a while since our schedule was already pretty busy, but ended up doing it because of Hidaka Rina (who Kusion wants to desperately marry).

This shows comes with two subtitle tracks, eng as the default and enm with Japanese honorifics as secondary. We aim to release this on Tuesdays from now on, using TV Aichi as our video source and CR subs as our base. Enjoy!

Release: What If Her Flag Were Toppled - 02

Written on 14.04.2014 | Tags: Release, Anime, Gaworare, Hoods Entertainment, HD, 10-bit

And as promised, we've got a much faster release this week! Also, a small TL note for this week's episode. We also put some extra effort into making Tokyo MX look a bit more presentable this week. Enjoy!

Release: Atelier Escha & Logy - 01

Written on 12.04.2014 | Tags: Release, Anime, Atelier Escha & Logy, Studio Gokumi, HD, 10-bit

So here's one more thing we ended up doing on a whim - the anime adaption of Atelier Escha & Logy - Alchemists of the Dusk Sky.

A word about honorifics: We generally include a honorifics track if the show takes place in Japan, with largely Japanese cast or if the show in general has a dominantly Japanese setting. As such, since this show takes place in a quite distinctly non-Japanese fantasy setting, there is no alternative honorifics track to be found here.

Also, since we picked this up after the airing, we could only source a Tokyo MX cap - next week on we should be able to use the somewhat higher quality TV Aichi broadcast instead. The next episode should also come out considerably faster. Enjoy!

Release: Knights of Sidonia - 01

Written on 11.04.2014 | Tags: Release, Anime, Knights of Sidonia, Polygon Pictures, HD, 10-bit

And here's our third pick for the season, the 3DCG adaption of Tsutomu Nihei's Knights of Sidonia! And instead of running for the hills due to the word "3DCG", throw away your prejudices and give it a chance - who knows, you might be surprised.

This release comes with two subtitle tracks, the default eng and the alternative enm with Japanese honorifics. Enjoy!

Release: No Game No Life - 01

Written on 10.04.2014 | Tags: Release, Anime, No Game No Life, Madhouse, HD, 10-bit

And here's our second spring pick, which we are subbing as a joint production with our friends at FFF, using the Crunchyroll subs as a base. Enjoy!

Release: What If Her Flag Were Toppled - 01

Written on 09.04.2014 | Tags: Release, Anime, Gaworare, Hoods Entertainment, HD, 10-bit

So here's something we decided to pick up on a whim after its airing (which is why we're releasing the first episode so late) with an original translation by our good friend fotc.

As with other things, this release comes with two subtitle tracks: the default track tagged as eng and a secondary track with Japanese honorifics tagged as enm. We should be much faster next week, so look forward to it!
