Summer 2010 Plans & Recruitment

It is my great pleasure to announce our plans for the Summer 2010 Anime Season.
The first title on the list is Amagami SS, adapted from the PS2 romance simulation game Amagami.  Unlike most other romance anime we may be used to, this one will have alternate routes: that is, each of the 6 heroines will have a route and ending (and ending theme, apparently) of her very own.
The second title on the list is High-School of the Dead, adapted from the manga with the same name.  It is set in a world stricken with a deadly disease that turns its bitten victims into the living dead, and focuses on a group of weapon-savvy high-school students struggling to stay alive.  There will be gore, attractive women, and lots of adrenaline.
We may pick up a third title depending on whether I feel like it or not, whether we get more active staff, and what other groups are picking up: one of my greatest gripes with the fansubbing scene is the incredible waste of perfectly good work that results from oversubbing.  That being said, three things:
1)  Feel free to suggest a show you’d like to see us do for Summer 2010.  If you’re convincing enough and circumstances allow it, chances are we’ll pick it up!
2)  We are open for joints with other sub groups so we don’t all waste our time for no reason.  However, because we are fully capable of subbing these shows ourselves, it is unlikely we will joint with you or your group unless there is a very good reason to.
3)  Yes, we are recruiting.  We are a quality speedsub group, and you will be expected to produce high-quality work in a short amount of time.  Thus, we are looking for dedication (this means being around at the same time every week for your assigned show) and skill (mastery of your position, or a strong potential for mastery).  Please join our recruits channel (yes, the ability to use IRC is required) if you are interested in joining us.  We are open to all positions (except QC), but we are particularly desperate for a dedicated and skilled timer with basic knowledge of ASS tags.  Be prepared to present examples of past work, and you may/may not be tested in depending on your reputation and quality of past work.  Finally, please note that staff members are not paid for their work, so don’t apply expecting to be paid.
Thanks for reading, and please stick with us!

    HOTD is easily going to be the anime of the summer, the manga is fantastic. And Amagami looks decent.
    Looking forward to the subs! Thanks guys!

    <3 you guys for doing HSotD ^_^// I've been looking forward to the anime since the manga went on hiatus like 1 1/2 years ago (and just hoped there would be one.) I am happy that a quality speedsub group like yourselves has already announced it and I know where I will be going to get it come july

  8. Revo on June 9, 2010 at 2:06 am said:

    YES. You guys are awesome!
    Mitsudomoe or Ookamisan to Shichinin no Nakamatachi

  9. Nikon on June 9, 2010 at 4:31 am said:

    Don’t forget to give us a good reason and some info if you’re gonna make suggestions. It makes things a lot easier for us.

  10. Cheers guys for subbing the two shows that I’ll be covering next season. If you’re still looking for another show, I’ll recommend the other two that I’m interested in; Seitokai Yakuindomo and Seikimatsu Occult Academy. Though I doubt that either of them will have the quality of the shows that you’ve already picked.

  11. Ahh sorry! I read Nikon’s post after I posted…
    Can’t really give you a good reason quality wise, but both are currently scheduled for 13 episodes according to ANN so it wouldn’t be a multiple season commitment. Also, for some reason the main heroine in both of them are voiced by Hikasa Yoko(A.K.A. Mio)……so yah….
    The other thing I’ll recommend since you guys don’t know about staff yet is waiting and doing the show that gets the inevitable shunt. Sorry for posting so much, but I want you guys to keep up the good work.

  12. Ironlungz on June 9, 2010 at 7:22 am said:

    A while back in the IRC channel there was talk about doing Occult Gakuin… any thoughts?

  13. Bouken on June 9, 2010 at 9:29 am said:

    Smooth. I’m interested in both those titles, so it’s a good thing to seed that they will be subbed by a skilled group.

  14. Bouken on June 9, 2010 at 9:29 am said:

    Lol sry, see*

    Oh gawd ZOMBIES FUCK YES!!!1

    Amagami SS, that great I can’t wait to watch it. Can you also do Seitokai Yakuindomo, The story centers around ?sai Academy, a former all-girls private high school which has recently been integrated for both genders. The student body is split between 524 girls and 28 boys. Takatoshi Tsuda is pushed into becoming the vice-president of the student council, where he is the lone male member surrounded by girls. What could be better 🙂

  17. bod4000 on June 9, 2010 at 10:17 am said:

    I have put this news on my website http://uk-anime.com/ to spread the news as well as are facebook fan page UK ANIME. You are the best best subbing group on the internet for anime

  18. I wanted to do Seitokai too actually. 1) Cause she’s cute. 2) Cause she’s cute?
    We’ll see what happens with that, haven’t heard any groups picking it up yet.

  19. Anon on June 9, 2010 at 12:05 pm said:

    Very nice that you take up HotD.

  20. Stuart on June 9, 2010 at 1:08 pm said:

    out of those, I’m only really interested in Amagami SS (probably due to the whole adapted from PS2 thing). Should be good 🙂

  21. Anyway, thanks for releasing Xvid versions for B Gata H Kei.
    You may want to try Shokofuku no Campanella or Asobi ni Iku yo! this summer. 🙂

  22. Saladin on June 9, 2010 at 4:33 pm said:

    i think seikimatsu occult academy sounds cool. i find it such an interesting genre joining, occult horror Aaaaaand school comedy. if you want a third series i think its worth considering. just for the bizarre joining of genres. you could even just try 2 episodes to see if theyre any good as a trial. also i would like to hear why you chose amagami ss. i dont know much about it but what ive read doesnt suggest anything really great so i would like to hear your reasoning. this is not so much to question your choice as it is to understand it.

  23. jc200x on June 9, 2010 at 5:31 pm said:

    I’m so glad you guys decided on Amagami SS! I’ve been playing the PS2 game for a while now and only just recently, did I find out about the anime.
    I thought about how probably no one would sub it and now you guys come along! Awesome!

  24. Afro on June 9, 2010 at 6:02 pm said:

    lol. been following you guys for a while. cant wait for the new shows <3

  25. martinez on June 10, 2010 at 12:45 am said:

    yeah….Amagami SS is crispy for me……:) so delicious…
    Seitokai? harem? ? moe? cute? always welcome for me….:)

  26. mako on June 10, 2010 at 7:01 am said:

    YEEEEEES HSoD and amagami, uhh im so gotta keep coming here, another 2 good show from UTW

  27. This is definitely a happy sign for me now that Ayu and Shinsen are pretty much dead. We now have another group that will pick up the shows that I really like. High School of the Dead is one that I’m following right now, Amagami… well, I’ve seen a little about it.
    All I can say is that I’m excited :3
    Too bad I won’t have time to join your group. Plus I’m not really familiar with ASS tags..
    Good luck I’d say but luck is for the unprepared!

  28. I vote Bakuman.

  29. oh silly me. that’s for autumn.
    i vote seitokai. but i’m pretty much satisfied with the 2 choices above. (:

  30. Kuhaa on June 10, 2010 at 8:49 pm said:

    Hooray, you’re doing HoftD! \o/

  31. aniluv on June 11, 2010 at 6:35 am said:

    2 Shows from UTW is just nice. Like this season of Angel Beat and B Gata H Kei. Both shows are awesome. I will be around for next season with HSotD and Amagami SS. Good Choice. Kinda my priority for summer as well. Fight!!!

  32. Geese1 on June 11, 2010 at 6:47 am said:

    I’m looking forward to Amagami, so I’m glad to hear you picked it up (HSotD isn’t really my thing, but I’m sure you’ll do a great job for fans of the series). I’ve got to be honest and say I haven’t yet looked into what’s being released this summer, so I can’t give you any alternate titles at this point. Guess I’ll have to get on that… 😉

  33. baka panties on June 11, 2010 at 1:25 pm said:

    i will bw waiting for Amagami SS from you!

  34. penguin burner on June 11, 2010 at 3:09 pm said:

    Black Rock Shooter?

  35. Hubert Cumberdale on June 11, 2010 at 5:37 pm said:

    rurouni kenshin or FLCL. BTW great work, <3 this site

  36. Thomas on June 11, 2010 at 11:58 pm said:

    Not to be a kiss-ass, but in one season you guys have easily become my favorite sub group. Not only for your quality and speed but also your friendly, responsive, and professional staff (and soft-subbed signs/karaoke). Looking forward seeing this group continue into next season since I was planning on watching those two shows 🙂

  37. dc1293 on June 12, 2010 at 1:05 am said:

    I’ve been watching your shows for some time and have enjoyed the work you have put into subbing especially when you guys did Evangelion. I was hoping if you guys can fansub Break Blade if its not too much trouble to ask for, since no other group that I know of has decided on subbing the show.
    Please think about it and thanks for all your hard work up till now.

  38. Spoon on June 12, 2010 at 6:58 am said:

    I vote for the Urusei Yatsura special lol

  39. We’re actually doing Urusei Yatsura! It’ll be done one of these days I think! No idea when, no idea what progress is made, but it’s been encoded for a while and possibly other stuff too! I watched the dvd, it was pretty cool! Good for laughs!

  40. Ershin on June 13, 2010 at 1:09 pm said:

    Urusei Yatsura is basically finished, Raze just needs to build up the energy to do the finishing touches one of these days. >_>

  41. Tenshiken on June 14, 2010 at 2:12 am said:

    i request sengoku basara ! XD

  42. UTW>>is....AWESOMEE! XD on June 14, 2010 at 11:09 am said:

    Lot’s of us would be glad if you guys would really pick up Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi. Really appreciate and grateful

  43. Ershin on June 15, 2010 at 5:02 am said:

    I’m actually kinda interested in Ookami-san as well, but the problem with that is that it airs on the same day as Amagami. It’s a lot to ask for us to do two shows in one day and maintain the same level of speed and quality that we’d like.

  44. dc1293 on June 20, 2010 at 1:07 am said:

    I vote for Asobi ni Iku yo! just like D_p says 🙂

  45. woodearth on June 25, 2010 at 10:04 pm said:

    Since you want avoid working on a show with the same airdate as the 2 shows already committed, I suggest picking up Seitokai Yakuindomo. Also another vote here for Break Blade.

  46. Lilgnomy on July 2, 2010 at 9:28 am said:

    I’m happy that you publish XviD versions too :), and now you picked a good shows to sub… You guys are great subbers.

  47. Felix U. Fon on July 4, 2010 at 2:43 am said:

    I hope for Densetsu No Yuusha No Densetsu, because I have high expectation for this show and it does show potential in my opinion. And it does not seem like any other groups are subing it.

  48. majinpic on July 15, 2010 at 3:16 pm said:

    Still waiting for Urusei Yatsura OVA-12
    Thanks for your hard working 😀
