Planning posts are overrated. Cos plans tend to not work out. More for us, thanks to me.
But still, no one will understand unless I say it out aloud. So…
On the anime side of things:
1. Denpa Kyoushi: This will get finished. I won’t drop it despite all the criticism it gets. I’ll hope that the show responds to my feelings too.
2. Ushinawareta: Picking it up would mean seeing it to the end.
No new shows.
Big words? You bet.
Thing is, we will very likely need external help. I won’t go far to say a Translator to help with both, but maybe some editing and/or TLC help in future. We’ll see how it goes.
However, I won’t be posting anything about it till I have made progress on both, and have talked with the existing staff about their availabilities and all. Else it’ll be rude to them, and you’ll keep throwing eggs and tomatoes at me, saying I’m all words and no action.
Also, another thing I realized in 4.5 years: there’s no point worrying what people say about you. Took me too long to realize. So I just leveled up~
There are some few things that are in the pipeline too. Let’s see.
Wow, time sure flies. It only feels like yesterday I was in college and got together few of my close friends to form this group. Since then, we have been through a lot, and not only good things happened, but we still stuck, and here we are.
Thanks to each and every one of the staff who made this possible. Every one of you, guys. Couldn’t have done without you. Special mention to the founding staff, especially ZeroYuki, without whom this group wouldn’t exist in the first place.
Thanks a lot to the fans too! Without your encouragement, we wouldn’t have made it this far.
Also well, I’ll be releasing something very soon to commemorate this, so stay tuned!
As for shows, almost all my friends are retired or busy, so there won’t be any new ongoing shows. I’ll be finishing Denpa Kyoushi and Ushinawareta (shut it, I’ll finish it lol) by sometime… this year?
These past few days, I’ve been trying to write an important document.
Which meant no translations, no free time to even read VNs. So we’ve fallen behind a bit.
However, I’d like to finish that by this weekend, and Typesetting has been going on in the background. Even if 04 is not translated completely, all the typesetting is done. And 05 Typesetting is also under way.
Once this is out of the way, the catch-up party will begin.
Especially as episode 7 will feature the best girl. <3
Please understand. Thank you.
That’s done for now. Many of you didn’t understand, but whatever. And just so you know, ep 4 translation is done, with 05 underway.
Anyway, editor is a bit busy but he’ll be back very soon. I’ll do whatever I can so we can release ASAP.
Episode 07 just turned things around, by the way. CHINAMI KANAAN BEST GIRL ADMIT YOU
First and foremost, many many thanks to convexity for TLCing eps 1-3 for us. We appreciate it very much. Good luck with your RL stuff, convex!
This is an episode where our YD Teacher is chased around Akihabara. I’d love to go there someday.
Also, ep 4 onwards we don’t have any TLC. I’ve done everything I could to find one but without luck. So from 4+, I’ll use the Official script to TLC my work. And if anyone reads this and feels like helping out, please contact me.
As to why I decided to take this decision, I discussed with the staff and we felt that this is better than our other option: to stop subbing this altogether. Though I guess some people want us to, but we’ll pass on that~
Let’s see if the rest eps come out faster.
As for notes and references, I couldn’t find much except Hanazono Kanon = Hanazawa Kana (possibly). Not sure though.
If you’re still watching us, thank you. We can continue as long as you enjoy what we do.
Enjoy the snack~
PS. On an unrelated note, go watch Person of Interest if you haven’t. Damn awesome show.
First up, please excuse the awful Typesetting in parts of this episode. They were done with the least possible effort by yours truly in order to speed up things and fill in for a busy Typesetter. The rest of the signs, done by a proper Typesetter, will look great. Thanks to him for going the extra mile and fixing some of them!
The episode has a huge filesize because the studio suddenly decided to add grain from this episode throughout the episode, except the OP and ED.
Next up, this episode has… references. Allow me to rant about this episode, one by one:
0. This episode supposedly animates chapter 2 of the manga. But those who have read the manga, let me tell you this in advance: This deviates a lot from the manga. Whether or not you’ll like it is your choice.
Personally, at first I was infuriated. But I believe I came to terms with it little by little as I translated and subsequently QCed it. Even episode 3 seems it’ll deviate from the manga, so I’m half looking forward to what’ll happen next.
1.First up, you’ll see a few glimpses of this. While I’m not 100% sure, I believe, apart from the algebra-trigonometric equations written, the code seems to be written in some HDL (Hardware Definition Language), which is basically telling a computer about digital logic structure, design, operations etc. Think AND, OR gates and the like. By extension, you can implement adders and everything with those gates in this itself.
I think this is something like VHDL but not fully sure. I did learn it during my college days. Wasn’t really my cup of tea though. Still, it brings back memories~
I still have no idea how this is useful for Kagami, but yeah.
2. This one would be more relevant for y’all who watch anime. Remember Fractale? It aired sometime in 2011, probably Spring. I still remember downloading it at 256 Kbps broadband internet I just got. Those were UTW’s releases by the way.
So here, what you see as “Fwactale” is actually referring to “Fractale”, and “Tanikan” is actually “Yamakan”, and he did say he would retire if Fractale did not sell well(Refer http://goo.gl/WDuqGV). And yeah, Kagami is very right in the sense that it’s a unique anime, and what he says in here is true. Have you ever seen another Anime Opening like this?
I haven’t. Also, I liked the anime a lot. I think I didn’t like the ending much, but still.
So, what did Tanikan… uh, Yamakan, do? I’ll rant about it in the next episode’s post.
3. Fun fact: A-1 Pictures is the studio who did Fractale, and who are doing Denpa Kyoushi as well. Coincidence much?
4. If you’re wondering why it references Fractale in 2015, please take note that the manga began in 2011, the same year as Fractale, and I feel it was in the author’s mind when he wrote Chapter 2 of the manga (which this episode animates).
5. At 00:50 or so, the “1” is gold-colored and the “2” is silver-colored.
6. Sonumap = Sofmap, one of the retailers in Japan selling electronic goods as well as these stuff.
7. At 16:11, for an explanation of ” 2ch married women’s board users”, refer http://goo.gl/WmkNi3 And also, 2ch is Japan’s 4chan.
8. Hiiragi Koyomi is voiced by Mimori Suzuko, also lovingly known as Mimorin. You might have heard Umi from Love Live, right? Umi and Koyomi have the same voice actress.
It’s been a while since an episode allowed me to rant this much on it. Special thanks to our TLC, convex, for catching a lot of these references!
I’ve been a fan of the manga for a while, and I couldn’t wait for this adaptation to happen. Waited quite a few years of it. Though there are some things lacking, but hey, no ecchi and they did a decent job in my opinion. Also, if you’re wondering why this feels “childish”, this is a Shounen anime, duh. The manga is awesome though and is highly recommended.
Original translation, as always.
This took too long because we ran into some staff issues, but they’re sorted out (for now). Also, my sincere apologies to all of you, that we couldn’t do all the signs. I’d rather not have our Typesetters burning out, sorry. Hopefully they’ll be done for a batch.
As for the encode, it’s from ytv cos NTV has some bad ghosting.
Anyway, if you’re thinking “This will get dropped” or “will take ages to finish”, you’re free to think however you please. But it’d be nice if you watched this and enjoyed it.
Enjoy the snack.
Special thanks to denpa for seeding this!
IMPORTANT NOTE: We urgently need a TLC and a backup Typesetter for this show. convex has been kind enough to help us out, but he won’t be able to work on it till the end. So in order for us to release, we need a TLC.
Okay, uh, first of all, a huge apology to all the staff who worked on this, especially our Evetaku counterparts, for taking so long with this. Same for all the fans too. I have no excuse for this.
And a huge thanks to all the staff who worked on it.
With this episode, they come to a hypothesis on what the fragments of the future may (or may not) be, and the pairs come together at last, with all the characters being developed. My most favorite is still Hina-chan, though.
As I keep on saying, this series has more than meets the eye, so if someone can provide some explanation on that matter, please do present it. Maybe I’ll get it some years down the line. No idea.
Huge thanks to Evetaku for taking up the joint offer, specifically cykia and twinkle- for being a sport and agreeing to help out us, who were short on TLs (still are) and for being hella patient and being a sport.
Many of us have retired, but this will also close one of the chapters. Thanks a lot guys! Couldn’t have done it without y’all!
With this, the curtains come down on a great show that’s underappreciated
sm2345, the master troll and joker, refusing to drop or give any accountability of the previous incomplete projects, attempts to start another new one.
The joke is to see how many episodes actually pan out before he gets tired of it, but yet refuses to acknowledge that and insists he will finish it. You are free to put up a wager on the comments, whether it gets moderated or not, is really beyond my control. For those who genuinely think this troll will deliver, please save your souls from his blasphemy.
The show he is doing will be done by probably CR and another group. Avoid Oyatsu like a plague.
