Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! – 02

I saw for Baldr, the bleeding god,
The son of Othin, his destiny set:
Famous and fair in the lofty fields,
Full grown in strength the mistletoe stood.
Joined are we in Bilskirnir by fair maidens.
The first of episodes shall be modified appropriately for the batch.

Joint with GotWoot Fansubs.
And that’s release No. 3 for today (and we’re early this week to boot)! Talk about a “productive” Sunday morning.
Nothing I can say about this episode without spoiling it, so I’ll simply leave you guys to enjoy this week’s episode of SAO.

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Lite – 02

Joint with rori Fansubs. The first short is available at rori Fansubs’s site. It will be revamped for the batch. Bear with us for a while.
Announcing one quick terminology change: “Tyrant’s Eye of Truth” will be replaced by “Tyrant’s Eye” wherever it looks good.
Why? Well, it looks clunky.
Of course, this is my fault. “Tyrant’s Eye of Truth” was a jab at a certain subset of fans (I think you call them “weeaboos” these days) of a certain manga and anime from a couple decades ago that, in my opinion, has led to more cases of the depicted type of chuunibyou than any other influence. It is also the source that the Eye (and quite a few other things in this anime) references. This was lost on most people who watched the first release.
I shouldn’t be surprised. Two decades is a long time.
It’s times like this that make me feel old. I can’t really keep up with you youngsters anymore. That “Find and Replace All” command? Back in my day…
I might need to start seriously thinking about retirement in real life.

Little Busters! – 01

UTW and Mazui have crossed baseball bats/eel pies/three-section nunchuks to bust out Little Busters! in (more or less) record time for you, the audience! Be sure to check out the long-awaited animefication which feature random item generation (now with free Japanese cultural item DLC), MPC achievements, which award lack of skill, and more importantly the save-a-quote feature, which allows you to turn any bland statement into a phrase for the ages. Oh, and play the game if you haven’t already (says the person who hasn’t gotten around to playing it for years)!
And yes, those are minor spoilers lol. Won’t ruin the fun though, so without further ado, do enjoy!

Nice and fast this week, though we would’ve been slightly faster if I hadn’t stupidly wasted about 30 minutes of my time QCing the timed script after a TLC/edit pass.
As for the show, I’m really liking it. Can’t wait for next week already.

(Patience, for the DDL soon comes. As does the silent god (SD), lesser to his brother (HD) by little.)
I know of the horn of Heimdall, hidden
Under the high-reaching holy tree;
On it there pours from Valfather’s pledge
A mighty stream: would you know yet more?
Joined are we in Bilskirnir by fair maidens.

Here’s our first offering for the Fall 2012 season!
Thanks go to lygerzero0zero of Evetaku Fansubs for graciously assisting us with the translations of terminology in this series. fnord also deserves special mention for spending hours on end working on this episode and pulling the team together.
With any luck, we should be back to a speedsub schedule with this show next week (assuming Crunchyroll isn’t simulcasting with the CS-Asahi airing).
EDIT: It seems people are wondering about our translation for “Cantus”, so I figured I’d give a brief explanation of the term.
The original Japanese for Cantus is 呪力, literally “incantation/spell power”, and is the psychokinetic/magic power the people in this world use. Our translation for the term is derived from the incantation part of the word (interestingly, while 呪 can mean “curse”, it would be wrong here because the power isn’t a curse/bad thing, nor does it curse things. It’s one of those “a word can have multiple meanings but it means this in context” kinds of things). It’s not exactly a self-apparent translation, but it preserves the spirit of the original term and sounds fancy too.

Fall 2012 Plans

Sword Art Online continues into the Fall 2012 season.
Our new shows are:

  1. Shinsekai Yori – We’re taking it nice and slow subbing the first episode, so don’t expect it any earlier than tomorrow. Whether we’ll continue with it or not depends if CR is simulcasting with the CS-Asahi broadcast (which is the first airing and what we’ll be using) or with the terrestrial broadcast (which is 5 days later). We will drop it if it’s the former.
  2. Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai – This will be a joint with rori Fansubs, and we will be releasing under the URW label (short for “Unlimited Rori Works”; Pedobear would kill to get in!).
  3. Little Busters! – We will be joining forces with our good friends over at Mazui again for this show. If this gets licensed, we will drop it if the streaming is available any earlier than 24 hours after it airs in Japan.

That makes four shows this season (oh boy). Here’s to another great season of anime!
