Spring 2014 Plans

We have no plans of picking up any shows for the Spring 2014 anime season (well, apart from Puchimasu, which is basically just Kusion + a QC).
Guess we’ll see you in the summer season. Probably.

    It was just announced that Fate/stay night was pushed up and is now starting this Saturday, and the 5 minutes since the announcement was all it took for every single other sub group to announce they would not be touching it in deference to the fact that they could obviously never measure up to the level of awesome UTW could apply to it and trying would only be embarrassing themselves.

  6. This would seriously crack me up. I swear.

  7. anon on April 1, 2014 at 2:48 pm said:

    What a simple, yet elaborate ruse.

  8. Milk on April 1, 2014 at 2:50 pm said:

    so… no project ?
    doing some OVA , Movie or BD….

  9. Hopefully we get the missing SYD*s by the end of spring. Besides that, I’m okay with this.

  10. Emophia on April 1, 2014 at 2:56 pm said:

    Just keep on working on rest of SYD* till summer and I’ll be happy.

    /least effort April fool’s

  12. ( ニセ ) fotc on April 1, 2014 at 3:00 pm said:

    Should be releasing a ‘ Fools in April ‘ soon™ to you all…! ( ¬‿¬)

  13. The best April fools is when it turns out to be true. Make it happen, UTW. The butthurt will be more entertaining than any anime.

  14. Totoro on April 1, 2014 at 3:28 pm said:

    will you do persona 3?

  15. boingman on April 1, 2014 at 3:41 pm said:

    @XerBlade: I like your comeback. 😀
    As long as you guys sub FS/N this year, I could live without any other sub by you.

  16. Hikari on April 1, 2014 at 5:01 pm said:

    April fools?

  17. Alter Zero on April 1, 2014 at 5:07 pm said:

    Requiescat in pace UTW!… U_U

  18. Pikanet128 on April 1, 2014 at 5:08 pm said:

    Are you Going to release
    Railgun S OVA

  19. Oh noes such tragedy!!!

  20. Phukkitt on April 1, 2014 at 5:46 pm said:

    Hey Raze, what wappened to UFW?

  21. Thank goodness! It always takes ages to scroll past that UTW nonsense on Nyaatorrents when looking for good subs.

  22. much regret

  23. TheUberAsian on April 1, 2014 at 6:45 pm said:

    You guys are such jokesters lol

  24. JayHD on April 1, 2014 at 7:03 pm said:

    Is it true that Ufotable are doing a remake of Fate/Stay Night later this year? I figured if anyone can confirm this, it’d be you guys at UTW.

  25. Kiyoso on April 1, 2014 at 8:33 pm said:

    Да вы у Рея Уильяма Джонсона подсосали :3
    Vladimir, I hope you read this.

    @JayHD: They are indeed. here’s a link: http://myanimelist.net/anime/22297/

  27. MPythonFC on April 1, 2014 at 10:02 pm said:

    Would also like to know if you’d be willing to look at the Railgun S mini-special…
    But otherwise guys, take a break, you deserve it. Come back in the summer with renewed enthusiasm for a fresh batch of anime!

  28. EcchiSkecchi on April 1, 2014 at 10:27 pm said:

    fooru dai!!!!

  29. Valhalla on April 2, 2014 at 1:17 am said:

    Pick up Fairy Tail? 😀

  30. knorssman on April 2, 2014 at 1:17 am said:

    on a serious note, do you guys plan to do a release of the Railgun S OVA and the BD with the specials?

  31. Inb4 this is a serious post and they actually won’t sub anything other than Puchimas. Have fun!

  32. bex39 on April 2, 2014 at 6:30 am said:

    hmm.. (¬‿¬)

  33. ( ニセ ) fotc on April 2, 2014 at 7:38 am said:

    (¬‿¬) …indeed

  34. @knorssman
    We don’t any plans to do them at the moment. We might do the OVA but definitely not the specials.
    @Everyone else
    We’ll definitely finish SYD2 before the season is over, hopefully long before then… And this wasn’t a joke we really are taking a season off. We all need a break and some of us have really busy schedules at the moment.

  35. Anon on April 2, 2014 at 9:04 am said:

    then why post on april 1

  36. Because the new season is starting in a few days? Not our fault if it happens to land on April 1.

  37. Good Luck then
    see you in summer 🙂

  38. Does that mean we’ll get Nise and SSY BDs, ar-chan?

  39. @Phukkitt: Nikon joined the Air Force is what happened, more or less.

  40. Yukina09 on April 2, 2014 at 1:17 pm said:

    Welp, see you in summer then.

  41. xDev on April 2, 2014 at 2:28 pm said:

    RIP in peace 🙁

  42. ARRGGHH!! seriously?

  43. Better be back in summer for 2wei, especially if they go the Niconico pre-air route again.

  44. ruehf on April 2, 2014 at 11:21 pm said:

    No Madoka movie I assume? The BD just came out today.

  45. Kurz on April 3, 2014 at 1:38 am said:


  46. LOL, I hope you’ll do MKnR
    maa…ikka :v

  47. @Enz
    It does not. Nise is stalled at that guy who has no free time, and SSY is stalled at that guy who had exams and plays too much Kancolle.

  48. Xiia0Kari on April 3, 2014 at 11:46 am said:

    sorry but could i inquire but will seitokai yakuindomo be subbed finish ?

  49. You could read comments

  50. Chitoge best girl on April 3, 2014 at 3:45 pm said:


  51. That’s how Ryuumaru started. Just saying.

  52. Thanks, Lom. Now I’m worried.

  53. Phaerius on April 3, 2014 at 6:35 pm said:

    But but, Shinsekai Yori!! WHERE!!! AUGH!

  54. Aria on April 3, 2014 at 7:51 pm said:

    Well its not like it any surprise with all the slacking last season. Lost some of my faith in this grp.

  55. Well guys why are you surprised if things change in people lives? It’s like nobody realizes that not everything can stay the same forever. Raze is really busy these days so it can’t be helped.

  56. Puchimas!! is enough for me, Thanks UTW! You guys deserve a little break

  57. Anon on April 4, 2014 at 3:20 am said:

    Looking forward to F/SN this fall! Hope you guys find some time during Spring Season to get Kara no Kyoukai: Extra Chorus out =]

  58. Licorine on April 4, 2014 at 4:37 am said:

    I’m happy enough that you sub Puchimas!! XD
    IRL stuffs are always changing and more important anyway..
    But, please finish SYD Bleep and any Batch/BDs on your ‘UTW Release FAQ’ during this season 🙂

  59. Spring of Joy on April 4, 2014 at 5:57 am said:

    No spring release?
    Take one, please. This one:

  60. @Spring of Joy
    What’s so hard to understand about > We aren’t subbing anything this season. If we were able to we clearly would

  61. @ar
    >Well guys why are you surprised if things change in people lives? It’s like nobody realizes that not everything can stay the same forever.
    It’s the prospect of UTW ending its miraculous run that scares most of us. Right now, actually for the last few years, you’ve been the best group in a pile of mediocrity and continued to release top-notch releases. You guys ceasing to sub would not only mean the end of a legendary group, but it would also deal a big blow to fansubbing and the western anime community as a whole.
    Your fans aren’t pissed off or angry at you. They’re just… worried.

  62. @Enz
    Of course I can understand that mate, but the fact is I guess there’s nothing we can do if that turns out to be the case in the future. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring and as it stands Raze is extremely busy and with his yearly exams coming up he’ll be out of action for most of this season. fotc is on a break, Futsuu is taking somewhat of a break too which means we have no translators that are active.
    Depending on how people feel next season after taking a break will determine what happens next. We never know what’s going to happen from season to season and if for some reason we decide to step back indefinitely, we’ll at least look at it and say we had a good run, and hopefully there’ll be others to pick up where we left off.
    Heh sometimes I think you guys might be more worried than us.

  63. Chitoge best girl on April 4, 2014 at 10:53 am said:

    If UTW does cease to exist, you can at least be sure you are/were the best fansub group out there.
    Thanks for all the releases and i wish you all luck for whatever you decide to do next, either real life or not.
    Hopefully we’ll all be laughing at this when you guys come back next season =)

  64. Welp. Looking forward to SYD2. I really hope you don’t stall it beyond April. See you in July. Don’t bother coming back for June, though, please, I like Commie’s terms better.

  65. Rawr on April 4, 2014 at 2:01 pm said:

    did you gonna subs Neptune OVA?

  66. sub Captain Earth 🙂

  67. OnlyMyRailgun on April 4, 2014 at 6:15 pm said:

    I’m in despairs! This news has left me in despair!

  68. Diablue on April 4, 2014 at 6:43 pm said:

    Wow. Not April fools? Lol.
    I always look forward to your subs; hopefully you guys can recharge your batteries for next season!
    btw: You guys already mentioned that Mirai Fukuin Extra Chorus was practically done. Are you planning to release that in the next couple months?

  69. XOXOXO on April 5, 2014 at 12:18 am said:

    Well, actually there’s no interesting anime in Spring. But I hope you guys finish what is stalled and come back in Summer and Fall because the most hyped anime are waiting there

  70. hanzo on April 5, 2014 at 1:08 am said:

    If nobodty picks it up maybe consider subbing Akuma no riddle? since it looks pretty good.

  71. Chocobo on April 5, 2014 at 3:35 am said:

    I dunno this is april fools’ joke or not, but i just hope you sub Fate/Stay Night remake this fall..

  72. Faggotdebois on April 5, 2014 at 2:02 pm said:

    We don’t care about this spring, now you have time to sub Extra Chorus..

  73. mianghuei on April 5, 2014 at 3:32 pm said:

    It’s a miracle you guys have lasted 4++ years and are the BEST out there.
    Just spend the season finishing what you guys have outstanding and batch stuff. The rest of us doing BDs will want your batch scripts. Thanks in advance for it.

  74. nufufufufu on April 5, 2014 at 8:45 pm said:

    yessh better take a break guys, since summer probably gonna be busy season. and it usually does, kokoko

  75. Licorine on April 6, 2014 at 3:44 am said:

    Somehow many people think that UTW is going to stop subbing when it’s only a season break due to IRL stuffs… :v

  76. vivant on April 6, 2014 at 9:22 am said:

    Agree with mianghuei, I hope this season break will be spent by doing batch stuff. =D
    Thanks and see you at Summer~

  77. This season will probably be spent doing nothing because the person who is responsible for the stuff being delayed is too busy to fansub.

  78. Raggers on April 6, 2014 at 11:25 pm said:

    Just going to give my thanks for a wonderful run of great releases, and also to say that I can (all to well) understand exam pressures. For everyone else in UTW, a more than deserved break is hardly something we can complain about.
    My fingers are crossed that you do finish SSY at some point (who doesn’t like the best subbers to do the best anime?) and maybe the F/SN remake, but whether you get round to those or not, thanks!

  79. tanzorbarbarian on April 7, 2014 at 2:54 am said:

    >That’s how Ryuumaru started. Just saying.
    Also Comfag is a notoriously lazy motherfucker who never did anything until the cycle of procrastination came full circle.

  80. yumipon on April 7, 2014 at 3:33 am said:

    you still plan to finish SYD?

  81. Renny on April 7, 2014 at 4:04 am said:

    Are you guys still going to sub “Kara no Kyoukai: Mirai Fukuin – Extra Chorus”?

  82. Rokudaime on April 8, 2014 at 5:22 pm said:

    Well, does this mean that I can at least count on you guys to release Extra Chorus sometime in the foreseeable future? Also, I sure hope you guys will still be around to eventually sub the new FSN sometime after that comes out (I’ll be waiting for BD’s as usual, so I don’t need fast Tv releases or anything), otherwise I’m going to be mortified…

  83. Googol on April 8, 2014 at 8:20 pm said:

    Take a well deserved break, guys. Hopefully, you’ll be all back for the new FSN this fall. UTW and the Fate series are two birds of the same feather.

  84. xDev on April 9, 2014 at 2:14 pm said:

    RIP in peace SYD Bleep

  85. A_Stabs on April 10, 2014 at 12:59 am said:

    UTW, your dead to me. lol!
    Time to fill in the gap elsewhere.

  86. Have fun with crunchyroll.

  87. Elisianthus on April 10, 2014 at 7:45 am said:

    It’s cool. I still love you all for what you’ve done. 🙂

  88. Tw1tcHy on April 11, 2014 at 8:50 am said:

    So just want to confirm for sure, this post was not an April Fool’s joke and you guys were dead serious about not picking up any Spring 2014 shows, right?
    Just want an actual, legit confirmation so my curiosity may be quelled and I don’t have to keep checking on the website several times a day for potential updates lol.

  89. @Twitchy
    I’ve confirmed multiple times but yes it was not an April Fool’s joke.

  90. supakku on April 12, 2014 at 4:34 am said:

    So you’re doing the 3rd Madoka movie?

  91. You should pick up Atelier.

  92. zeroibis on April 12, 2014 at 9:46 am said:

    Yes worried indeed as UTW is literally the pinnacle of quality releases. A season without any quality releases, it is like having spring without the flowers.

  93. @zeroibis
    That was beautifully said. And so very true.

  94. Reason on April 12, 2014 at 2:49 pm said:

    I wonder what are your reasons for not picking an anime this season ?

  95. Rokudaime on April 12, 2014 at 7:32 pm said:

    Read the comments. ar already explained why.

  96. Anon #1234 on April 12, 2014 at 11:14 pm said:

    /go learning more Japanese while enjoying other fansub groups’ free stuffs

  97. EcchiSkecchi on April 13, 2014 at 4:00 am said:

    Woa, in the last April’s fools you said something about stop fansubing, and it was a joke (that you guys said had a lot of truth) and this April’s fools you are really taking a break! This timing really is something else.
    Well, like I said in some post when Kusion announced his retiring, your real life takes priority, always! You should live your real life first and solve your problems, just after that you should fansub!
    Fansubing is a hobby, maybe a style of life to some – and maybe the reason to live to others – but you have a real ife, and you should give it priority when it requires priority!
    You guys made a great job fansubing anime!!

  98. Thanks for the kind words guys~

  99. xKiYoMiNaTiONx on April 14, 2014 at 7:10 am said:

    Is there any status on when you will be finishing Seitokai Yakuindomo*?

  100. hmmm… ok a little break is fine but dont fall into break of abyss just like ryuumaru
    (probably summer) OMG!

  101. UTW ceasing to sub would be like your girlfriend leaving you because you cheated on her. And at first you maybe wouldn’t care and continue to do the cute blonde, but after some time you’d begin to feel empty and eventually realize that letting her go was the biggest mistake of your life. You’d remember the good times you had; how much effort and love she’d invest in your relationship and how you would take it for granted, thinking those blissful days would never end…
    Dammit, I like you guys way too much (‘xcept Xythar; he’s kind of stupid ~.~). <3

  102. just release knk extra chorus already.

  103. Best time to finish off nisemono

  104. Spidey on April 21, 2014 at 6:54 pm said:

    Well, 2wei is airing in summer so yeah, it be nice if you could at least sub that in summer.

  105. Kojou Akatsuki on May 27, 2014 at 9:23 am said:

    Do you plan to do it for Sword Art Online II In Summer 2014?

  106. No we aren’t subbing it. Bug FFF they should be.
