Winter 2011 Plans

The new show we will be picking up for the upcoming Winter season is Fractale, an original anime series airing in the first noitaminA slot; it will replace Amagami SS in terms of our scheduling. The series is slated for 11 episodes and begins airing January 13th.
Toaru Majutsu no Index II continues into Winter season, being a 24 episode show.
Depending on what other groups end up doing, availability of staff, and scheduling, we may or may not pick up an additional show; however, we will abide to our usual stance of avoiding shows that are already subbed well and reasonably quickly by another group or organization.
Thanks for reading, and we hope to see many of you back here next season!

    Hopefully you’ll continue to do the Amagami SS BluRays! Love the quality on them guys. Keep up the good work. =)

  2. WorthlessComment on December 27, 2010 at 11:30 am said:

    YES! Wait wat? idk, but yes! Or idk. What does UTW stand for again? I forgot what’s happening right now.

  3. And if Fractale is swiftly licensed like the few previous noitamina shows have been in the recent seasons?

  4. Why announce shows that you would drop after episode 1?

  5. Dutch Oven on December 27, 2010 at 11:50 am said:

    Fractale should be nice,and more index is always good.
    heres to hoping somebody subs IS so i can have my harem fix for the cold winter.

  6. Damn, i thought you were going to do Gosick :\
    Do you know which fansub will pick these?
    And i will watch your Fractale for sure. 😉

  7. nikolai131 on December 27, 2010 at 12:09 pm said:

    Good news 🙂 Fractale’s gonna be awesome
    And still no INDEX batches >.>

  8. SHHHHT!
    You guys r f*cking awesome!!! Fractale! I’m gonna be crazy while waiting for it.
    Thank you for everything and Happy holidays~

  9. @Dutch Oven 11:50 am
    yeah IS sound cool idea. but then that sound like a ryuumaru thing with IS being shit load of TITTES

  10. Shadow-F-Asura on December 27, 2010 at 12:40 pm said:

    Sweet this along with Kimi ni Todoke are the only ones that really interest me next season! glad your subbing it!
    And thats the thing about Kimi ni Todoke everyone will fight over it!

  11. honestly, i haven’t read Fractale manga although i have it in my notebook. somehow, i still can’t enjoy it.
    but oh well, iet’s see the first eps of it…looking forward to it 😉

  12. trollgod on December 27, 2010 at 1:20 pm said:

    can’t wait for it ;[

  13. Looking forward to it! 🙂

  14. loliloliloli on December 27, 2010 at 1:32 pm said:

    yeah.. fractale.. really looking forward for this..
    and about who wondering who will subs IS/gossick, static-subs plan to sub one of those animu…

  15. Valagras on December 27, 2010 at 1:55 pm said:

    Fractale is a MUST for 2011. Looking forward to your sweat, blood, booze, and what not X3

  16. man, i tot you guys were gonna sub kimi ni todoke 2nd season. Ah well good luck and fratacle!

  17. Lovely 😀
    I was a little interested in the anime once a friend mentioned it.
    And now that you guys are doing it I have to watch it.?

  18. Does anyone thought that this REALLY looks like Yosuka no Sora?

  19. Hooray! Fractale already was one of the few Winter 2011 shows I was going to watch for sure but now there’s no way I’ll let this pass.

  20. dheophe on December 27, 2010 at 2:25 pm said:

    How about Soul Eater BD version ? Vol.1 will be released in 26 Jan 2011.

  21. @dheophe
    No. lol.

  22. tormaid on December 27, 2010 at 3:07 pm said:

    Coalgirls is doing the Soul Eater BDs, since it has already gotten several fan translations and an official translation it would be kind of a waste for UTW to sub the whole thing.
    Looking forward to Fractile!

  23. Well if gg, Mazui, or Ryuumaru don’t pick up Yumekui Merry then I hope you guys sub it, it really looks like an awesome show.

  24. IZEROII on December 27, 2010 at 5:06 pm said:

    Original series is what caught my eye. Hopefully it is good and you guys stick with it. Thanks again.

  25. CommanderB on December 27, 2010 at 6:04 pm said:

    Well IS will be subbed by Ayako which will most likely subbed quickly – reasonable quality?
    well ryuu gonna sub what ryuu gonna sub – commanderA always out for titties (Is)
    Yumekui Merry might be subbed by Mazui
    else there is dragon crisis – fire throwing index sightet
    and what about Freezing? Tits and NanoTech Battles… did i mentioned battle school romance ?

  26. @CommanderB: Mazui usually sub light novel based anime, which would be IS this season. Although personally I hope they do Yumekui instead.

  27. tormaid on December 27, 2010 at 6:32 pm said:

    Static Subs is doing IS, I hope there aren’t too many groups doing the same show…

  28. tormaid on December 27, 2010 at 6:34 pm said:

    SS is also doing Gosick

  29. Yay sounds like good a good show, and more index is good =D

  30. SS aren’t speedsubbers.

  31. tormaid on December 27, 2010 at 6:55 pm said:

    That’s true. I honestly don’t mind waiting and I would rather that then have 3+ groups subbing IS.

  32. zekk_skywalk on December 27, 2010 at 7:15 pm said:

    Completely unrelated to the Winter season, but do you guys think you’ll be doing Ufotable’s Fate/Zero if it comes out in the near future?

  33. Fractale sounds very UTW-like. Looking forward to it and Index (ofc)!

  34. Diogo4D on December 27, 2010 at 8:37 pm said:

    Thanks tormaid, can’t wait for it.
    Saw the last trailer of Gosick and it looked awesome!

  35. I would rather have a speedsub group get the ep out within 6-24 hours of airing than wait weeks for a “quality” group like SS, who will have virtually the same quality as the speedsubbers (if they’re a good group).

  36. IchiGOAWAY on December 27, 2010 at 9:11 pm said:

    This was not on my to-watch list, but since sometimes the chartfag descriptions are deceiving, I’ll try it out.

  37. boingman on December 27, 2010 at 10:05 pm said:

    Damn, IS might be a series that the trolls from gg might be interested in. Hopefully I am wrong.

  38. From what I have heard, gg isn’t interested in IS. But I guess you never know.

  39. I don’t know what the fuck this show is all about, but Kana-chan as the female lead means I will probably sit through it like a giant faggot whether it’s good or not.

  40. Looking forward to the next season! keep up the awesome work!
    few quick questions, are you guys are working (Currently) on the last volume of AB? =D
    and To Aru batches and the 10v1?
    I’m extremely excited for your final release of AB!

  41. RealGizmo on December 28, 2010 at 12:57 am said:

    for some reason I can’t playback your Angel Beats encodes… using latest k-lite codec pack, it plays all your other encodes, what might be different?

  42. @RealGizmo: I think it would be better to tell them that in the IRC channel. I think.
    The formula to solve your retard problems:
    1. Uninstall k-lite
    2. http://www.cccp-project.net/
    3. ???
    4. Profit
    Pro tip: Read the About page.

  43. So I assume that you won’t care on Funi streaming it. Well good.

  44. RealGizmo on December 28, 2010 at 2:03 am said:

    @Suzuku: Well I don’tplan on switching, been using k-lite since forever and it’s still being updated, so I’d rather send k-lite team a wink and have them fix whatever is weird.

  45. @RealGizmo
    you use the mega codec pack right?
    Update the player, depending on your OS (32 or 64bit) download the appropriate player.
    Most playback issues are relevant to the player being used. (only applies to CCCP vs K-lite mega) since all other packs lack omnipotency.
    Never stick to the player the pack gives you, always update it and customize it.

  46. @RealGizmo
    All our angel beats encodes are DXVA compatible and all that jazz. So they should play fine.
    Yeah we’re working on last Angel Beats volume, albeit slowly due to xmas. We won’t be subbing the Making of Episode 2 because it requires stupid amounts of typesetting and has almost no voice, but I’ll be including encodes of it in the release.

  47. Thanks for the info and update ar! and thanks for all the hard work and awesome encodes!
    I’m never dissapointed with any of your projects!

  48. Glarbage on December 28, 2010 at 4:12 am said:

    Fractale is pretty much my number 1 most desired anime for next season, so I’m glad to see a good group is going to be covering it.

  49. Fractale looks interesting but I hope something else comes along too. Index sucks IMHO.

  50. RealGizmo on December 28, 2010 at 4:49 am said:

    @akurei @ar
    I’m using the latest k-lite, version 6.6.6 (lol)
    The mpc-hc provided is version v1.4.2764.0, the one found on mpc-hc’s download page is v1.4.2499, I’ll download this and try both 32bit and 64bit and report my results, if it’s still a codec error on k-lite’s part I have written on their forums.

  51. Gosick looks interesting.

  52. RealGizmo on December 28, 2010 at 4:57 am said:

    yes, the version from mpc-hc’s page seems to work, bot 32bit and 64bit builds.
    windows media player seems to sit at opening media forever though :/
    k-lite has been notified regarding the issue with their provided build of mpc-hc, thanks akurei and ar for the help!

  53. @ RealGizmo
    For 64bit OS they don’t offer a player that can handle intensive encodes, so I had to download the most recent build at the source site (since my OS is 64 bit) There is little support for 64 bit programs so it’s harder to resolve issues. (the 64-bit K-lite addon was inssuficient to aid in playback)
    I used to have problems with the Amagami encodes until someone pointed me towards this and I realized a majority of issues are actually player issues that come with the packs. and ever since then I only use a standalone MPC-HC and whichever codec pack I want. they all work, but I switched from K-lite to CCCP because it’s easier to manage and less stressful. but the player lacks various essential features. and I haven’t had any issues with my new configuration. I even created a test file folder with the most intensive typesettings and encodes to test out various players, codec packs and subtitle displays.
    Hope you can resolve your issue completely!

  54. Mr.Bushido on December 28, 2010 at 7:31 am said:

    Hmm I really hoped that UTW will sub Kimi ni Todoke

  55. @Mr.Bushido
    We only have so much time to dedicate to speedsubbing each week, and Fractale was the most interesting looking original show this season. Kimi ni Todoke 2 will be oversubbed and it’s mid-week so most of us will be unable to spare time to work on a speedsub for it.

  56. Where is the new poll on the lovely stalker-chan?

  57. Oh, and I meant the Amagami SS by this.

  58. Spinarakk on December 28, 2010 at 2:26 pm said:

    Fractale looks pretty interesting
    I really hope you guys pick up another show, and if i were to choose one, I’d say Yumekui Merry, unless Mazui does it then don’t worry lol
    If anything please don’t bother with IS and Gosick as Static-subs should do a fine job with them, even though it might take a while, and hopefully m.3.3.w doesn’t take ages on KnT2

  59. LumForever on December 28, 2010 at 3:14 pm said:

    If you pick up only Fractale then how about finishing Urusei Yatsura OVA 12? 😀

  60. Index and Kanade are in Fractale? That’ll be worth watching XD

  61. If this has been said already then forgive me but I would like to suggest Bakuman as a show to pick up. I know that the anime watching community at large are split on liking and disliking Bakuman, but I am on the liking side. Anyway just sayin’. So trolls keep off me 😛

  62. good choice on fractale. will be looking forward to it!

  63. negativebro on December 29, 2010 at 5:58 am said:

    The director (or producer, don’t remember) of Fractale is kind of a faggot, but the premise of the show seems interesting, at least compared to the other shows airing at the same time. I’ll be looking forward to it.

  64. cking543 on December 29, 2010 at 5:11 pm said:

    so any news on the batch of index 1-5? really hoping for it to be released before the new year. Thanks again

  65. Ignition-san on December 29, 2010 at 5:26 pm said:

    Hopefully you guys can do both GoSick and Fractale. It’s going to feel a bit anemic with only Fractale and Majutsu. Then again, i got used to having new anime ever 2 – 3 days.

  66. I knew there would be a chance of Fractle being picked up with you guys after reading that post on Magane no Kanojo episode 4 which had Hanazawa Kana in it. Can’t love her any less. I recall watching Kaichou wa Maid-sama throughout just because of Sakura. <3
    Thanks for picking up Fractle.
    Not much interested in IS, well SS will be doing it along with Gosick. But if Mazui or UTW picked it up, I would have gone with them.
    as for those who are wondering, here is who's subbing what in winter:

  67. Ugh. Someone please tell anyone to pick up Level E. In any case, happy you guys are picking up Fractale, and there seems to be enough interest in Wandering Son (really excellent manga), so a happy camper here.

  68. Matteas on December 30, 2010 at 1:22 pm said:

    Good choice ^^ I have quite high hopes of Fractale, being written by a cultural critic.
    Has any group announced they are going to do Madoka Magica?

  69. Pingback: Winter 2011 Projects « Commie Subs

  70. Gosick, nobody can translate it like you guys. please consider doing it.

  71. @Everyone
    We’d love to pick up a second show but as it stands both Raze & I don’t have time to pick up a 2nd show this season. Raze is in a similar timezone to me now, and this means that both of us have to get up really early (think 2-3am) or not sleep for any show we pick up. Doing two shows a week like this is really tiring, this is how it’s always been for me and Raze feels it now too that he has to deal with it too. That’s why we’ve decided on picking up one show for the time being.
    Some of you guys really need to understand the amount of time we commit to speedsubbing and the times we might need to commit ourselves to each week to do said speedsubbing. That being said we still enjoy doing it, just 2 shows a week like that is pretty tiring is all. If somehow we can manage a 2nd show (probably unlikely but who knows) then we’ll announce picking up a 2nd show when the time comes.

  72. @ar
    it’s really appreciated. But, you know… humans like us are greedy xD

  73. @anon
    Well if you put it that way ?(???)?

  74. Annoymous on January 5, 2011 at 3:55 pm said:

    What is noitaminA?

  75. what about beelzebub i dont think anyone got it till now or am i wrong?

  76. Guys,
    See the following link:
    That’s what CR has announced so far.

  77. ok now and who cares about crunchy roll? fansub>paysub

  78. Nope CR subs are usually excellent. Can’t compete against simulcasts.

  79. so have fun on crunchy cya ^^

  80. vipervoid1 on January 8, 2011 at 12:22 am said:

    Hope u guys can sub Yumekui Merry..
    It seems like a interesting anime..

  81. gg is doing it and their release is pretty good. No point doubling up.

  82. heroic on January 11, 2011 at 2:25 pm said:

    Just wanted to thank you guys for all that you do. I look forward to supporting your projects through 2011!

  83. anon_dude on January 13, 2011 at 10:11 am said:

    Funimation just announced that they’re simulcasting Fractale starting Jan 13. You guys still going to keep the project?

  84. I hope you’ll keep it. There is much less fun in watching good show with funimation errors and lack of decoration.

  85. shaneoyo on January 13, 2011 at 7:54 pm said:

    Please keep it.

  86. elmaton04 on January 13, 2011 at 8:13 pm said:

    I’m pretty sure you guys will keep this show. I have high hopes for this show.

  87. You could always sub Showa Monogatari. It’s only 4 prequel episodes and no group picked it up yet as far as I know.
    That being said, thanks for Fractale. Funi’s 360p isn’t worth it.
