Projects Status Update


As you may have noticed, our releases have been a bit sporadic lately. I just wanted to give you all an update on where we’re at with our current projects, and talk about future projects too!

Saekano S2

It sucks to start this with bad news, but due to some staff becoming unable to continue working on this, it will be on hold until further notice.

Fuuka

Still not dropped at this stage, just progressing very slowly. After one dead computer and one busy timer, we find ourselves two positions down on this. I’ve edited episode 7 (and it was amazing [the show I mean, but also my edit]), and hopefully we’ll find a way to continue with this show, if not we’ll let you all know.

iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls

Also not dropped, just currently stalled on finalising volume 3. Translation has been completed all the way up to volume 9, so I’m sure you’ll continue to see these released in future. Btw you’re wrong if you don’t think Uzuki is #1. Jus’ sayin’.

Gate

We currently don’t have a translator for this project and thus all work on it is currently frozen.

And now, for some words on future projects…

Love Live! Sunshine!! S1 & S2

We put out our release of the first volume for the Blu-Ray of Love Live Sunshine, and announced our intention to carry this all the way through to season 2, which begins airing in October. I wholeheartedly intend to make this a consistent release, at the best quality we can manage. Blu-Ray releases might not be every two weeks, but we will do our very best to provide timely releases during the airing of S2.

Hibike! Euphonium S2

Thanks a lot to everyone who watched our release of this! I’ve been trying to get a TV batch together, and hopefully you’ll see that soon with a bunch of batch fixes. Along with that, we will be doing a Blu-Ray release for Hibike S2. Encoding has begun, and these should hopefully be a quick job since all scripts have been v2’d or v3’d (but no more than v3—we ain’t a bunch of amateurs!).

Alderamin on the Sky

Plans are in place to complete a Blu-Ray release of Alderamin. Scripts just need have their batch fixes checked, and they’re good to go.

Next season and beyond

Given the amount of dusty projects we have at the moment, we won’t be picking up any new shows airing this summer. As staff that have been unavailable become available again, projects that are not actively on hold will continue, and the focus for active staff will remain on Sunshine.

I hope this gives you some answers on anything you might be waiting for, poi.

      It’s highly likely (given the group name), just no concrete plans yet.

      Thanks for your comments aiborie (and others), it’s really humbling to see people are waiting on us.

      Honestly speaking, Love Live S2 fell apart when some team members dropped off the radar, and we didn’t have replacements organised. The amount of commitment the TL and I had didn’t really mean anything when we didn’t have a full team that shared our sentiment sadly…

      We’ve acquired the BDs for Love Live S2 Vol 1, and work is underway to get that out once we fill in the team to get our signature(?) song effects. Vol 3 for S1 is also nearing completion.

      A large number of staff changes means we are slowing trying to get projects moving again, but I don’t have anything concrete on when the releases will be ready.

        What about Cinderella Girls BD?

        1. Lann094

          Because it’s more or less a dead art, we’re flat out of options for someone who can do the karaoke effects. Our usual master of it who’s featured on most of Kantai’s releases has had to take a break from fansubbing, and we don’t have any word on when they might return.

          It’s understandable not everyone thinks they’re necessary, but it’s somewhat of a signature, and the TL doesn’t want to stop using them halfway through a release.
