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!

This is my meaningful post.

So… in the short amount of time we’ve been around, we’ve somehow become the Kings of v2. I’d like to set aside some time right now to address that in a good old fashioned Q&A manner.
Q. You suck.
A. That’s not even a question, sir.
Q. You’ve v2’d your last 3/5 releases. Sup?
A. Honestly, they’re all for things that shouldn’t have gotten past us in the first place. Not gonna make excuses.
Q. What’s the deal with that?
A. While a couple of us aren’t exactly new to the rigors of fansubbing, for most of us this is our first time doing weekly series. There are things we need to iron out to get things out fast and good, but I assure you we’re getting there.

Q. So, what now? Gonna drop a show? It’s obvious you can’t handle more than one.

A. What the hell kind of question is that? Of course not. We’ll get our shit straight and get it done right. Might have to bear with us while we get a handle on it, but it will get done.

Q. Well, why should I bother watching your subs?

A. Our motto is to get shit done right and get it done with quality. Unfortunately, as we try to get things out faster than we normally would under other circumstances we’ve been making careless mistakes we wouldn’t make, otherwise. Like I said, we’re working on it.

Q. … That means no more v2’s?

A. We’ve devised a new system that should maximize quality while minimizing the time it takes to get an episode done. I have a pretty hefty calculus expression written out for it. Things should improve from now on. Can’t make any promises that we’ll never v2 again, though.
So, without further ado… a v2. I jinxed it.
