Hey there everyone. We’ve got an important announcement, so please listen up.
Well, quite a lot of things happened in the past few hours with us, and that blew a storm. I won’t bore you with the details, but we discussed various issues of Oyatsu from different perspectives, and we’ve come to the following decisions:
- We’ve decided to drop Area no Kishi. One of the reasons being, it’s very long, close to 52 episodes or maybe even more. With our small staff, we were sure to burn out sooner or later. Also, interest among staff about it was pretty low, so we decided that it’d be for the best. I know I made a grave mistake when I picked up Area, so I’m very sorry, everyone. Nevertheless, Area 06 will be the last ep we release, since it’s already almost done. And CR and HorribleSubs are the only ones doing it I’m afraid.
- We’ve decided to continue with Papakiki, despite quite a few other groups doing it. With only one ongoing project at hand, it’ll give the staff a much-needed and well-deserved break (last season was very hectic for all of us), and we can intensify our focus and efforts on the show. Also, this show gives off an Usagi Drop-like feeling, so it’s Oyatsu’s kind of show I believe. Also, we like the show as well.
Once again, sorry for causing you guys so much pain and trouble and anger and everything. Hope you’ll continue to follow our releases in future. Thanks a lot.
And finally, we are looking for a backup Typesetter to help us out for Papakiki and our future projects. Please PM sm2345 on irc and/or shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
