Status Update

Hello, everyone. sm here.

As you might have noticed, we have been like semi-dead over the past couple of months. During this time, we were working on Fantasista Doll, but RL issues cropped up for the Typesetter and we made him take a break. Oh, and since no one applied for replacement TSer (see two posts down), the project became stalled. All we can do, and are doing right now is to wait for him to come back to fansubbing. I guess that explains why no Fantasista Doll releases even when the season is almost over. But no one is to blame for it.

However, we still plan to see this to the end. So if you are:

  • An experienced Typesetter willing to help, please PM sm2345 on Rizon, or send an email to
  • Someone who doesn’t know anything about Typesetting, has aesthetic sense, and is willing to give it a shot, check the guide here: This, in our opinion, is the best guide out there. And if you feel you like it, and can help us out, please send an email to, or if you have an IRC nick, poke sm2345 on

Now, for the Leviathan Specials. There are something which many of you are looking forward to. Now, the translator for Leviathan is taking a break. Now, we might get moving with them soon. We are in the process of acquiring raws, cos *cough cough* taking unofficial breaks from fansubbing has its minuses *cough cough*. That resulted in us not having the raws for it, among other things. So, if any of you have the raws, be it for the whole episodes, or the Specials only, or in the best case, the tses for the TV Tokyo re-airing that contained the specials, please share so we can work on those. Thank you very much.

Ah, for Fall, we want to do Log Horizon IF:

  1. The stars align
  2. It’s not simulcasted or doesn’t already gets good subs
  3. We can find a backup Typesetter and Translation Checker for this. Why? It has lots of signs and MMO terms which we might need help with.

Oh, and before you ask, it’s not SAO. They shouldn’t be compared. Also, NHK is involved in it. Should be good.

Anyway, that’s all for now I guess. We’ll keep you posted on this post.

And last but not the least, thank you very much for your direct and indirect support. We really appreciate it.

PS. TWGOK is awesome. Higurashi(S1  and S2, yet to see S3) is awesome too.

UPDATE 27th Sep: Thanks to phil and Zdm321, we found a nice set of raws for it. Though the tses would have been best, so if someone has those, please share. But these look usable as well, with some tweaks. Next step: assembling the team! Where art thou, UNKNOWN-san… ;_;

UPDATE 28th Sep: Team assembled. Now processing. But still need a Typesetter for Log Horizon, and if possible, Fantasista Doll… ;_; Where art thou, Typesetter-sans…. ;_;

UPDATE 1st Oct: Working on the specials. But still looking for backup Typesetters… Where art thou, Typesetter-sans… ;_;

UPDATE 5th Oct: Fall: Log Horizon and White Album 2 (joint with our friends at Kaylith). Also Levia Specials and Fantasista Doll.

    “So, if any of you have the raws … or the Specials only,”

    I’m going to out myself as having no encoding chops here, but here goes.

    I’ve been downloading the 720p mp4s of the specials from Checking the video info for the tenth one gives me “H264, 1047.3kbps, 1280×720, 24.0fps; MP4A, 127.9kbps, 48.0kHz 16bit, 2 channels” for the video and sound respectively. The other episodes are comparable. If that’s good enough (and it looks fine to me, but what do I know), you could just rip them from there. Just gotta make sure you get the “HD” stream and not the default 360p stream. People have been uploading them pretty reliably on Monday-ish for a few weeks, so it’s a source, if not an impressive one.

    And yes, I know “lolstreaming.” Give it a look.

      Wow, thanks for digging those up! And Zdm321, a close friend of ours, got us another set of raws too. We’re in the process of comparing them and selecting the best from the lot.

      Also, that site looks cool. Thanks again. 🙂
