Fall 2011

September 15, 2011

The title is rather self-explanatory, is it not?
Inb4 wall of text.

So, like, we haven’t really decided shit yet.
We’re probably pulling the same shit as we did with LOLHeroes, and Gosick, waiting for at least one episode of everything to air before deciding what to sub.
Until then, we’re probably somewhat open for suggestions, but in the end we’ll most likely completely ignore any requests.  ( ¬‿¬)

There are some shows, however, that we might be more likely to do than others.
For example,  Guilty Crown seems awesome. As far as I know (correct me if I’m wrong), no one’s decided to do this yet.
Then there’s C³, because we all love cubes, don’t we? ( ¬‿¬)
Also Mashiro-iro Symphony, for the simplest of reasons. Random generic harem VN adaption + Manglobe. Like, seriously, what?
Oh yeah, then there’s Mirai Nikki, because there’s some mild interest in it.

Then we’ve got the stuff that’s still on-going, the SYD OVAs (there were 3 of them, whereof 2 haven’t aired yet) and Higurashi Kira.

Also, guess what? More staff (if it’s the right staff in the right amounts) generates more shows.
Now, what might I be trying to say with that?
Yes, that’s right! Recruitment time. (‐^▽^‐)

So, yeah, here’s the deal:
As ya’ll might’ve noticed, we’ve had some delays every now and then.
Why? Because someone or someones (wat, I didn’t even know that was an actual word) was missing.
What should we do about this? Easy. Get reserves for every spot available.
Translator (Currently: 2½) – This one’s pretty important, but I bet you knew that. So, this is like top priority. More of these are always welcome.
Translation Checker (Currently: 1½) – We ain’t got one. Thus, pretty high priority one this one, too. Yeah, one should be enough.
Timer (Currently: 1) – Another one of these would be good to have.
Typesetter (Currently: 2½) – Not very urgent. But well, if you prove that you’re better than Eien, and at most half as lazy, then you’re welcome, I guess. ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌
Editor (Currently: 2) – A reserve would be nice. Okay.
Encoder (Currently: 2) – No need. At all. Two pro encoders are more than enough. (Speaking of which, 10bit encodes incoming this fall if .ts can be acquired.)
Quality Checker (Currently: 2?) – A reserve on this position would be good, too. Gboyredgun, you thar? Lurk moar.
Capper (Currently: 1? 0) – I think Eien’s got one. Probably. Correction: We need one of these.

I don’t think I missed anyone, but do mention if you feel left out. ( ¬‿¬)
Also, I was about to forget this, if you want to apply for Editor or QC, then at least be fluent in English.

And if we get a reserve for each position (where it’s needed), we could also expand it further, which would enable us to do more than 1 show.
I bet people would like that, eh?
So, what do you need to do? That’s right, you there, with the skills, hit me up on if I’m online, or leave a message to DerpS.  ‿‿
Or send an email or something. Heck, you could even write a comment on this post. The last alternative ain’t recommended if you want to apply for a position though.

That’s all from me, for now.

Edit: Edited for great justice.
Edit2: Edited again for greater justice.

    what are the criteria you will be basing on in your selection?

    • September 17, 2011 17:24

      1) Is it penned by Kagami Takaya? +9001
      1) Does it seem like it’ll be fun/cool/awesome/not crap? +1
      2) Does it seem like it’ll pretend to be fun/cool/awesome but it’ll probably be crap? -1
      3) Does it catch the interest of anyone other than me? Alternatively; Does it catch my interest? +5
      4) Does it yield any e-peen? +1
      5) Does everyone else plan to sub it? -5
      6) Is it from Zexcs while not being penned by Kagami Takaya? -20
      7) Is it an adaption of a good/awesome series? +1
      8) Will it have a seemingly incomprehensible story? -5
      9) Will it have absolutely no story and just contain a whole lot of ecchi shit? -10
      10) Is it from Madhouse? -9001
      11) Is it from Sunrise? -50
      12) Is it from J.C. Staff? -100
      13) Is it gay? -9002

      That’s pretty much it, I guess. ( ¬‿¬)

        my 2cents analysis (not suggestions though):

        1. Shana 3: This is the final season of Shana which will coincide with the final volume released next month. Yeah, JC Staff is going to f**k it up probably, but still, the final arcs of the story are intensely awesome (but no way will they beat Zexcs in f**king in a million years). However, there’s going to be a bunch of terminology.

        2. Haganai (Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai): This is a ROFLCOPTERS series and is likely to be well-adapted (I mean, it’s kind of hard for this to go wrong). But there might be bleeps(literally) along the way. Also have substantial references. I’m really looking forward to this. But I think a lot of groups may want to do this.

        3. Horizon: By all accounts, this is an epic series, and I think it’s not in too much danger of being badly adapted. I’ve read some netabare and the basis of the story is really interesting. This is actually the second series I’m most looking forward to. I’ve yet to pick up the LNs because each volume is over a thousand pages.

        4. IMO Fate/Zero is an awesome series and it’s LNs have been completely translated. So you can go see for yourself how it’s like.

        As for the rest, I personally will also be watching Ben-To, C3, Guilty Crown, Mirai Nikki, AGE, and some other manga adaptations.

    Either Guilty Crown or Horizon, both will be great i believe.

    Last Exile is fine too. Did they cancel Coppelio? Because it looked nice

    I’m interested in Shakugan no Shana, needs some awesome subs for that. Although I’m not sure if Eclipse (original subber) will pick it up; they seem rather inactive.

    • September 16, 2011 09:02

      Well, Samu-tan hates it, and I personally don’t like it.

        The Shana light novel is much better, the anime is softened up quite a bit…

        • September 16, 2011 18:58

          And that doesn’t really help our situation now, does it?

          • JDRIZZLE permalink
            September 16, 2011 19:03

            Nope, not at all~

    Doki has already announced that they were subbing Guilty Crown on their website.

    • September 16, 2011 06:31

      But they’re doing pretty much everything anyway.

    Just so you guy’s know, this chart is on V6, you’ve got V4…

    • September 16, 2011 06:30

      Doesn’t change the fact that there ain’t really much of interest.
