About Our Second Show

So, the mysterious replacement show we had decided on was Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin, but Crunchyroll pulled the troll on us and announced their simulcasting it like 4 hours before airtime.  Similar to what happened with Highschool of the Dead, we’ve decided there’s also little to no point in subbing Occult Gakuin, even though it breaks my heart because it is god-tier anime and everyone should watch it.  I suggest watching Commie’s version, which, from a brief skim of the script and what little I remember of the dialogue, seems like a solid release.
Unfortunately, this means we’re wracking our brains as to what to do for our second show.  At this point, pretty much all other viable alternatives have been covered:
Mitsudomoe – Subbed by FFFpeeps.  It’s not really my kind of show either, and responses from the other staff are lukewarm at best.
Asobi ni Iku Yo! – Shows like this are a massive turn-off for me and extremely boring to sub.  Ershin is going to give this a watchthrough and decide after that, but you can pretty much bet that we won’t be picking it up.
Strike Witches 2 – … Why I’m even bothering to mention this show I have no idea.
Shiki, Legend of Legendary Heroes, Sengoku Basara 2, Sekirei 2, Nurarihyon no Mago – All licensed by Funimation.
Seitokai Yakuindomo – Already subbed by Ryuumaru, which our timer commander`A runs.  We of course endorse his version.
… which leaves us with pretty much nothing else.  In other words, it’s very likely that the only show we’ll be doing for Summer 2010 is Amagami SS (which, to ease the minds of some of you, we have zero intention of dropping).
Of course, this means that we free up time to work on BD releases, OVAs, movies, and the like.  Please understand that we’d much rather not pick up a second show than waste our time and effort subbing a show some other group/licensing company is already doing.

sadly, with Funimation deciding to suddenly license like 15 shows this season, this is probably what will happen.  Of course, this means we free up time to work on OVAs, movies, and the like.

    STRIKE WITCHES, what can be better than loli, pantsu and military? WE DEMAND THE WITCHES

  4. dc1293 on July 7, 2010 at 4:13 am said:

    Strike Witches 2 is going to subbed by StrikeSubs isn’t it?

  5. Senkou no Night Raid is desperate need for subs. T_T

  6. anonymous on July 7, 2010 at 4:20 am said:

    You might as well drop Amagami SS, it’s subbed by Eclipse and they’re lightyears better than you.

  7. Nikon on July 7, 2010 at 4:27 am said:

    He’s right guys. Let’s just all be fags and drop it. I’m sure that’s what he’d do to. You know, be a fag. Yup.

  8. storrm on July 7, 2010 at 4:39 am said:

    year you guys doing OVAs and what not works for me.
    you going to do black rock shooter?

  9. Afro on July 7, 2010 at 5:51 am said:

    yeah, i don’t blame you for not having a second show. But you guys are the best. especially since your like the only ones that offer SD releases -_-. (likes to watch on PS3)
    anyways. amagami SS is pleasure enough. if i need to ill find someone else for other shows. And movies, junk and stuff is great.
    keep up the good work <3

  10. anon;] on July 7, 2010 at 6:09 am said:

    I say Sub some awesome uncen loli hentai!

  11. j00hn on July 7, 2010 at 6:32 am said:

    dammit, no Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin :/
    I second unncen robot loli hentai.

  12. Don’t dare to drop Amagami SS!
    I dual-watched your’s and Eclipse’s release and damn, Eclipse sucks. Only nice was the OP Style, but nothing else. Usually I go with Eclipse, but you are lightyears ahead.
    I’d love to see you sub Sekimatsu Occult Gakuin, though. Watching crunchy makes my head … yeah, crunch. Guess you’d put a hell more effort into quality than they would ever do.
    so… if you are really bored, don’t forget, people would also wait for you, for the sake of quality and stylized subs =p
    …and UTW-Fanboyism.

  13. outlaw on July 7, 2010 at 7:08 am said:

    I echo PLH in saying that Senko no Night Raid is in dire needs for a sub group to actually sub it. The show’s done airing and not a single group has past the half way point!
    While I’d love to see you do Seikimatsu (just finished watching the first episode myself), I’d also really like to finish this show. It’s good.

  14. Honze on July 7, 2010 at 7:48 am said:

    wait. There’s Occult Academy !!!

  15. koda is doing Senko no Night Raid anyhow.
    blakbunnie is doing the translations, and he’s a very good translator.

  16. bonta-kun on July 7, 2010 at 8:21 am said:

    yeah up ur hentai output

  17. Archfiend on July 7, 2010 at 9:18 am said:

    Your decision to not sub anime already subbed by others is the best. There is to many teams on some projects.
    If you have some spare time, you have a manga section without any project yet ^^

  18. coolasj19 on July 7, 2010 at 9:55 am said:

    Yo Afro.
    Use Playstation Media Server to stream the .mkv’s. It will be acronymed under PMS.
    Its a shame to not be able to watch HD on a PS3.

  19. Richard on July 7, 2010 at 10:41 am said:

    NO not Sengoku Basara 2 lol i was hoping u guys would sub that hahahhahahah oooo well u guys are epic and keep up the good work thankz for the epicness

  20. thephamily on July 7, 2010 at 11:56 am said:

    Hurhurr why don’t you sub Working!!, I don’t think enough groups got that one.

  21. ulke on July 7, 2010 at 1:08 pm said:

    “…waste our time and effort subbing a show some other group is already doing”
    Then drop Amagami SS.

  22. boingman on July 7, 2010 at 2:13 pm said:

    I was really impressed by your work on NGE 2.22 together with Thora. I hope that you’ll consider working with them again for the Haruhi and Unlimited Blade Works movies. Considering your name, I guess the latter is given. 😉 (Though I have to admit that if I could choose then it would be Takajun translating it)

  23. outlaw on July 7, 2010 at 3:05 pm said:

    @ ar
    The quality of what has already been released is very high, but that doesn’t change that every other group has been very slow putting out each episode. (as blackbunnie has translated up to episode 9 or 10 iirc)

  24. I understand why you are dropping it. I hope to see some good OVAs and movies 🙂

  25. Soukyuu on July 7, 2010 at 4:12 pm said:

    I guess this season I’m better off watching the shows raw.
    I’d rather not understand something than get distracted by wrong translations (crunchy, coalguys) and overuse of “fuck”s (ryuumaru).

  26. ApaticMan on July 7, 2010 at 4:31 pm said:

    I agree with your decition, And I´ll wait to see wath OVAs will be translated…

  27. JC200X on July 7, 2010 at 4:55 pm said:

    It’s relieving to hear you guys aren’t dropping Amagami SS. I hope the idiots who tell you to drop this show do not influence your intentions.
    While it’s a bit disappointing to hear you guys won’t be subbing a second show airing this summer, it’s great to know you guys will be focusing on BD releases and OVAs. You guys are awesome!

  28. If you guys don’t do the Unlimited Blade Works movie; I will be sorely disappointed.

  29. kazenokizu on July 7, 2010 at 6:57 pm said:

    how about cat chit one it seams worth a dam or a watch then you can do hellsing ultimate 8 when it comes out

  30. kazenokizu on July 7, 2010 at 6:58 pm said:

    my bad its shit not chit XD

  31. TheCumi on July 7, 2010 at 7:43 pm said:

    Lets sub [spoiler]Digimon Xros Wars[/spoiler]!

  32. Please Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu!

  33. Stuart on July 7, 2010 at 9:23 pm said:

    I’d love if they subbed that personally but I know that if they aren’t Digimon fans, they probably wouldn’t. I just have to hope someone else subs it

  34. Good call, guys!
    I found your group because you were the only ones to sub the Ranma OVA, so having a monopoly on certain titles is a total plus. I look forward to more cool short stuff!

  35. kageshinzo on July 8, 2010 at 12:30 am said:

    There should be something among these 2010 shows you can do

  36. lopuki on July 8, 2010 at 1:40 am said:

    I know it’s licensed, but what about subbing Legend of the Legendary Heroes after all? Even tough it’s licensed, there is no simulcast in sight, and the first episode has been unsubbed for a week (yeah, I know some guy named “Guess” subbed it, but it was horrible, the translator doesn’t even speak japanese).

  37. ranmachua on July 8, 2010 at 2:02 am said:

    At this rate if some company decides to licence every damn show for fall 2010, I guess that means UTW won’t be doing any projects anymore

  38. Nick on July 8, 2010 at 2:45 am said:

    If you sub HOTD I’ll buy you all a months supply of monster and redbulls >_<

  39. ShineOn on July 8, 2010 at 2:51 am said:

    How ’bout Cat Shit One? It seems like it’s finally coming out, and it doesn’t look like anyone is doing it… Or is it licensed now, too?

  40. Why not sub Strike Witches?
    StrikeSubs are slow at them, plus you guys are doing a quality-speedsub (:

  41. CherryHawk on July 8, 2010 at 5:48 am said:

    I support your decision! What about Shiki, which airs in a couple days? Doesn’t seem like the kind of stuff you guys do though, and I’m probably too scared too watch it anyways haha.

  42. 0rlzz on July 8, 2010 at 6:30 am said:

    Asobi ni ikuyo please!! U.u

  43. Ershin on July 8, 2010 at 7:28 am said:

    I don’t want to come off as an asshole, cause maybe there’s something I’m missing, but based on the trailer I saw, I can’t for the life of me understand why Asobi ni Iku yo is getting so many requests. It looks like it was ripped straight from an eroge.
    I’m gonna watch the first episode, as promised, but I can’t guarantee I’ll be picking it up. I dunno, maybe I should browse the light novels or something. I just don’t get it. >_<

  44. Ershin.. for me.. I mean I think it looks almost loosely like To-Love-Ru and Kanokon (concept wise — harem/ecchi/Huge Boobed female lead/Comedy).. which those shows had decent fanbases.. Sure its not going to be some huge thought provoking plot or storyline.. You should be able to tell that from the trailer..
    There are a lot of fans to that genre.. Hence the requests.. I know Ill be watching it.

  45. martinez on July 8, 2010 at 12:23 pm said:

    absolutely….me too…..

  46. How bout Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi for your second series?

  47. Mazui does it already, and good enough.
    I’d still vote for Occult Academy, Commie sucks….

  48. Asobi ni Iku yo would not be my first choice here either, but everything else I wanted to watch this season is either already licensed or Seitokai Yakuindomo, which you’ve said you won’t do.

  49. Kevin on July 9, 2010 at 12:19 am said:

    Well more time for you guys to dedicate yourselves for Amagami SS. I’m sure you guys will do a good job and mistakes will be a thing of the past!

  50. ranmachua on July 9, 2010 at 1:28 am said:

    I hope you guys do really sub Asobi Ni Iku Yo coz nobody else is doing them…

  51. martinez on July 9, 2010 at 2:20 am said:

    okay…so many people request Asobi no Iku yo…
    so….please :p

  52. dc1293 on July 9, 2010 at 2:46 am said:

    If you’re not doing a second summer show, would you mind subbing break blade 1+2 when the BD’s come out?
    july 23 – BD of first movie
    august 27 – BD of second

  53. dc1293 on July 9, 2010 at 2:49 am said:

    I’m asking since no other group seems to be picking it up and I love you guys 🙂

  54. I have to agree with lopuki on the first page… Legend of the Legendary Heroes may be licensed, but they’re doing absolutely nothing with the series at the moment (I don’t see even the slightest mention of it on their site) so it wouldn’t be a waste of time at all!
    (Forgive me if you have a moral issue against subbing licensed series or anything though)

  55. jmaeshawn on July 9, 2010 at 7:38 am said:

    It’d be [i]really[/i] nice if you’d sub Asobi ni Iku yo… Onegai! 🙂

  56. D071 on July 9, 2010 at 8:34 am said:

    Not exactly, per say, an anime series, but why don’t you give Cat Shit One a quick look http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzYOaqJjWJU

  57. Dirty on July 9, 2010 at 11:13 am said:

    Could you sub Black Rock Shooter as soon as it comes out at the end of this month? Will be a fun OVA.

  58. martinez on July 9, 2010 at 1:23 pm said:

    o yeah…i forgot it…..please…also subs BREAK BLADE BD Movie 1st please……^0^
    UTW i luph u….

  59. Geese1 on July 9, 2010 at 4:17 pm said:

    Sorry to hear that you’re not planning on picking up Asobi ni Iku Yo!; hopefully another group I like will take it on. Still, this gives you time to concentrate on Amagami SS, which is good, and also to work on individual movies and Blu-Rays as they come out so it’s not all bad.

  60. Well looks like Crunchyroll has picked up Asobi ni Iku Yo! and is doing “simulcast”, so HMMMM… Ershin said he’ll watch it though anyway.

  61. Ershin on July 10, 2010 at 5:41 am said:

    Wait, really? Ahahahaha! Freedom!
    But yeah, a promise is a promise. I’ll still at least check it out.

  62. Legend of Legendary Heroes – Funi stream is terrible quality (HorribleSubs uses their stream) and Guess’ subs are beyond terrible.
    This series needs UTW justice!

  63. From what I hear the translation for LOLH is nearly perfect, and by perfect it’s near flawless. Grab Commie’s releases for the show, you should be happy. The editors/tlcs/etc all told me the same thing, that the translator did a top notch job for the show so try your luck 🙂

  64. martinez on July 11, 2010 at 2:06 pm said:

    @ar….what about Break Blade BD? do you have any plan to subs it? 🙂

  65. frito182 on July 12, 2010 at 4:21 am said:

    Please sub “Asobi ni Iku Yo!” I don’t know of any group which is doing it and am really looking forward to it. It looks like it’s going to be a hybrid of To Love Ru and Sekirei.

  66. bk201 on July 12, 2010 at 7:23 am said:

    @UTW: I have a favor. Due to some circumstances, you will only do “Amagami SS” in this Summer. And you said, in that case, that you would free up time to work on BD releases, OVAs, movies, and so on.
    So, can you let us know if there are some BDs, OVAs, or Movies that you’re currently working on? If not, let us know the ones that you’ve decided to sub.
    Thanks for your hard work. ^_^

  67. anon on July 12, 2010 at 7:39 pm said:

    How about doing Seitokai Yakuindomo if Ryuumaru keeps being late with releases? (And its not like ANYONE worries Doki will release something on time or something)

  68. martinez on July 13, 2010 at 6:10 am said:

    @anon….i don’t think it’s possible…..UTW respect commander’A just like they respect license….
    and i think it’s better if they release BD….i hope they will release Break Blade BD later….:)

  69. anon,
    commander’A is suffering the effects of “real-life-itis” at the moment. So for the next 3-4 weeks Seitokai Yakuindomo will be a bit slower than usual. He’ll be back to doing stuff as usual after that though, so you can expect his typical fast releases from around episode 5 onwards. He told us about it in advance though, so it’s all good. If the delay is too much to bare, I would recommend grabbing Godspeed Subs in the meanwhile, I checked out their episode 2 and the translation wasn’t too bad at all. The translator seemed to grasp the jokes pretty well which is important with this show.

  70. bk201 on July 13, 2010 at 10:25 am said:

    Again. ^_^

    The first episode of Black Lagoon season three just came out and it doesn’t look like anyone is planning on subbing it, maybe go for that? Everyone loves a show with killing sprees.

  73. herpderp on July 26, 2010 at 2:07 pm said:

    Could you guys, please sub Break Blade. We’ll be so much appreciated
