The studio decided to go full troll with the character names (Godfree? Seriously?), so please note the following name changes:

  • Yoruko –> Yolko
  • Schmidt –> Schmitt

Lisbeth’s side story is up next, and should be the last side story before the “main arc” kicks in. Let’s see how they do with this one.

With all these ass shots they’re giving us, they might as well call this show Nice Butts Online.
Maybe it’s because I didn’t really like this side story in the LN, but this anime adaptation of SAO is starting to feel like ye generic filler-shounen five episodes in. Hopefully the pacing will pick up a little once the adaptation steps out of this side story fest and into the main storyline.

Obligatory kawaii loli ep? Obligatory kawaii loli ep.
Looks like we’re getting the Inner Area Incident side story next. I hope to the divine powers that they aren’t going to try and squash all of it into one episode.

We’re a little late tonight, but here you go anyway!
CR delayed their simulcast by an additional hour compared to last week, so we decided to do our own translation. Unless CR suddenly starts on-the-dot simulcasting again, we’ll probably keep doing that too.
As for the episode, I think they adapted the Red-nosed Reindeer side story pretty well. Please enjoy!

Congratulations Congratulation! That’s a LOT they cut out for this episode. It also looks like they’ll be cramming the Red-nosed Reindeer side story into one 20-minute episode for next week.
Here you go, anyway! For those of you who haven’t read the novels, did this episode feel rushed to you?
EDIT: For those of you experiencing lag with the OP/ED karaoke, we highly recommend that you update to xy-VSFilter, which is very simple to install and will drastically improve the efficiency of softsub rendering.

I’m not sure if we’re wasting our time going ahead with this series, with the Crunchyroll simulcast and decent script (only a couple real translation inaccuracies but general derpy English). The rest of the team were practically unanimous in their desire to continue though, so… here you go!
And what a fantastic first episode it was! The visuals are to die for.
Please enjoy!
EDIT: We’ve v2’d the episode with the following changes:

  • New encode: the video should be slightly better, and the audio is now truly stereo.
  • Typesetting: the color issues some of you were having should be fixed. Some signs have also been tweaked.
  • Karaoke: Simple karaoke effects have been added.
  • Script: a few lines have been tweaked for improvement.

As the v2 uses a new encode, there will be no patch. The XviD is based on the v2 version.

Sword Art Online 2nd Trailer

We decided to sub one of the Sword Art Online trailers as a test run of sorts:


About why we romanized NervGear the way we did:
[spoiler]Yes, we know it was romanized as “Nerve Gear” in an illustration in the 3rd volume. However, the term was also romanized as “NERVGEAR” (all caps) in a chapter the author published on the web. We had a long discussion about it and decided to go with NervGear (a stylistic choice of capitalization taking the later NERDLES of AmuSphere and MediCuboid into account). Of course, if there’s any evidence in episode 1 that suggests something else, we’ll be flexible and change the term accordingly.[/spoiler]
As for the name of our joint with GotWoot (if this project goes through), we’ll be going with UTWoots, which won by a rather handsome margin of 1,100 or so votes from its nearest contender, GUTS. Thanks for voting!

Summer 2012 Plans

We are confirmed for the following:

  • Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru!
  • Sword Art Online (this will be a joint with GotWoot Fansubs; you can help decide our group name in the poll to the right!)

Accel World continues into the Summer 2012 anime season.
I wanted to do Muv-luv Alternative: Total Eclipse as I’m a huge fan of ├óge stuff, but with CR simulcasting it and staff unavailability, picking up this show will probably be more trouble than it’s worth.
Certain staff members *cough cough* will make good use of this breather to work through their gigantic backlogs, I’m sure…
EDIT: I’ve resetted the poll to include the “GutWorks” option, courtesy of Xythar. Please vote again!
EDIT (30/6/2012): It appears Crunchyroll has licensed SAO as well. Here’s what we’ll do:

  1. If it’s a latecast (i.e. 12 or more hours after it airs in Japan) and/or their translation is shit, we’ll push ahead with our original translation.
  2. If it’s an on-the-dot/few-hours-late simulcast and the translation is good, then we’ll either edit CR’s scripts or drop the project. Those of us who have read or are reading the LNs are really enjoying the story so far though, so it seems likely we’ll go ahead and edit CR’s scripts.
