Spring 2012 Announcements/Projects/Updates

I guess a full-blown status report is needed every once in a while, and since Spring 2012 season is kicking off, this would be a perfect time to tl;dr about stuff I want to do and stuff I’m working on.   Of course, since we’re a super-small group, and prefer working on short-length/web shows that go unnoticed by others, we’re not going to be doing any big-name popular shows.
New Spring 2012 Anime:

Shiba Inuko-san:   Nutbladder released Ep1 on a 200p webstream raw back on April 1st, but I’m not sure if it’s just an April Fools Day joke.   I’ll wait and see what they do before making a final decision about it.   If they continue to release on 200p raws, or if they don’t release Ep2 at all, then we’ll pick it up.
Update: Looks like they won’t be continuing, we’ll go ahead and pick this up. TL will start working on it after he gets back from work.

Yurumates 3D:   Was thinking about doing this since CR’s video is an SD upscale. I was able to find some raws from the TV airing, and they look better than CR’s halo-ridden video.
Update: Since it looks like Zero-Raws will be releasing raws from the earlier Sun TV airing, we might go ahead with this project. If the TL isn’t up for it, we’ll just use CR’s delayed script.

Gakkatsu:   CLBC‘s release is very good, so go with them.   However, I have a feeling that it’s going to be almost impossible to obtain raws for Ep6+, due to it being broadcast as a 1seg (mobile TV) show instead of a traditional TV show.   The mobile TV broadcast is bitrate-starved and 320×180, so it’s going to need BD/DVD re-releases.

Ongoing Projects:

Mangatan:   Batch will be out this weekend, just gotta fix a couple of things in Ep1.

Tales of Gekijou:   Should also be complete by this weekend.   Just need to edit the last 3 episodes.

Kobato Specials:   SP6 should be out sometime next week, after the TL gets back from AnimeBoston.   SP7 and SP8 are waiting on BD raws. Update: BDMVs spotted on Share! Now to wait for some pre-encoded raws to pop up on torrent/ddl sites.

Otome Nadeshiko:   Big thanks to 2S-Shoujo for uploading a raw for this short 10-minute OVA.   We’ve already translated, timed, and typeset it, and it’s now waiting on TLC before it gets edited.

Sakasama no Patema Specials:   Haven’t heard back from the TL Recruit yet, but I’ll get it out as soon as I have a translation for them.

Secret Project:   Not going to announce this till we’re ready to release.   Hasn’t been translated yet, but I have a feeling that nobody is going to sub it any time soon.

Plastic Nee-san & Basket Army:   Waiting on the next episode to stream.  ETA unknown.
On the Backburner:

Suzy’s Zoo:   This will probably be brought back into Ongoing Projects once I clear out some of the current backlog.

Robo to Shoujo:   Bought the DVDs for this back in December, but the official subs needs a LOT of work.   Official subs skipped lines, didn’t translate any signs, and were just overall horrible.  We’ll get to it when we have the time.

Karl to Fushigi na Tou:   Another show that we were able to acquire HD raws for.   On the backburner for now due to lack of translators.

Guin Saga:   Cancelled due to it being released on BD in R1 territories.   If, for some odd reason, it turns out to be a DVD upscale, we’ll resume with HDTV raws.

Yakumo & Ryoko & Touch:   Nothing has changed, just haven’t felt the urge to work on these shows yet.
Oh, and I noticed that our one-year anniversary was a couple of months ago, so happy birthday us!

    Happy belated birthday then 😉
    You guys are doing a great job and love your dedication.
    Looking forward to the secret project, “a feeling that nobody is going to sub it any time soon.” I’m intrigued!

    Thanks for the support! And appologies about the slight delay on things. School homework/projects dominated my entire weekend. I’ll have some stuff out tonight.
