It’s that time of the season again! Group news, recruitment details, next season plans and status updates after the break.
Sooo, been a while since the last group news post. Good a time as ever for a new one with the new season approaching, I guess.
First, let’s get this out of the way: we are NOT doing the next new teen’s love show. Sorry, we just have no interest in shitty porn shows anymore. The uncut episodes cost us 300 yen a week and the person buying them is already 2k USD in debt and we just do not like them. Skirt no Naka was fun though. Subbing stuff not subbed is cool and all, but we have to have interest in the series and we just do not have that anymore.
Second, as of now, we have our eyes on Junji Ito: Collection next season. We don’t want to promise anything, but odds are we’re doing it. Official sub edit/tlc with the best video source we can obtain if it’s picked up officially and original tl if not, or if the subs are just that bad. You might see us doing some surprise OVAs, ONAs, movies or specials that don’t get subbed, too. We already have our eyes on a movie whenever the BD comes out assuming it doesn’t get official subs.
Other than that, we’re doing Houseki no Kuni BDs (first volume releases 12/20 with our copy supposedly arriving somewhere between 12/23 and 12/26, get hype, fam) and continuing with the Houseki no Kuni manga monthly. Oh, and we’re going back to do the chapters from 47 to wherever it gets decent with our own volume raws. Official volumes would take too long to get to that point so we’re going to do them and just hope whoever’s still interested in the series by the time the volumes come out will buy them. Support the series when it’s available in your region! plsdontsueus.
As a side note, the Skirt no Naka BD was just uploaded to U2 so we’re doing bds, as promised. The BD uploaded just contains the r18/uncut version
as far as we can tell, however. We can now confirm the BD uploaded only contains the uncut version.
Onto existing projects: Made in Abyss, Tsugumomo, Parappa/PJ Berri and Souryo to Majiwaru Shikiyoku no Yoru ni…. These will all continue as normal. Nothing is dropped. Tsugumomo’s just going to be delayed until the end of time because fuck the signs in episode 06. Also, nobody ever uploaded past volume 04, so there’s that too.
Aaaand now for everybody’s favorite part: recruitment!
We’re recruiting a webmaster to make our site actually look pretty. Our website design was actually stolen from Caffeine (we have staff who were with them, so I guess it’s ok?) except more shit because they had puddi who was an actual webdev or something. But anyway, idk what actually needs to be done, but if you could at least please fix this theme’s comments, that’d be great. It’s terrible when a comment thread gets more than like 3-4 replies. We’re recruiting translators, translation checkers and an OP/ED stylist /kfxer too! Getting another tl/tlc is a long shot and we actually didn’t get any applicants from the last status update post, but an OP/ED styler /kfxer shouldn’t be asking for too much! UPDATE: We now have a kfxer but he can’t style, so we’re still looking for an OP/ED styler! Past experience as a tl/tlc isn’t required but you will be tested. No test needed if you’re coming from an established group or have someone whom we recognize from other groups who can vouch for you. Experience for OP/ED stylist/kfxer isn’t really required but we can’t train you and you’re expected to know what you’re doing. We don’t actually see how you could style OP/EDs and/or write kfx (OK, maybe style OP/EDs but you’d have to know how to work Aegi and its markup language) if you’ve never done it before, but hey, whatever. Either just leave a comment saying you’re interested with an email in the email field you’d like us to reach you at, email us at pas.fansubs(AT)gmaildotcom or hop on IRC!
That about does it. See you guys next time!
