Don’t come blaming us, but the release date of Hellsing Ultimate OVA 5 in Japan has been pushed back to November 21. (It was originally scheduled for release today.) Obviously we can’t fansub something that hasn’t even been released yet, right?
*sniff sniff* … smells like something’s burning…
… it’s probably the super overdue July 4th Voice Actor post,
that thing’s been cooking since last year…
And here we have it, episode 9 of Yume Tsukai in a joint with Ayu. Grab the torrent here.
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to add a Ayu release to Baka-Updates, since several admins of Baka-Updates are also part of Ayu…BEAT YA TO IT!
The long-dead manga scanlation group of Inane seems to be revived! They released 6 chapters of stuff for the first time in like half a year. For all of you guys who don’t know, they used to be among the top scanlators of Naruto.
That’s it for today!
Some good news about Naruto actually!
As promised, I asked about AonE doing the Naruto movies. As of right now, chances are looking *very* good that we’ll be subbing them. (No guarantees of course, but we’ll try our hardest!) The situation *could* change if something drastic happened to the key staff on the Naruto project…
Nothing has changed on our position with the second season. Too bad~
And here we are, still churning out releases. This one here is Black Blood Brothers episode 6.
Also, in light of some comments of that sad news post that you can read further down:
We thank you guys for all those comments about being sad that we’re done with subbing Naruto. Too bad we’re not going to continue…Anyways, there was also some concern about DDD. You know, if you really wanna help us out, we could use some new blood, so if you think you can join the fansub team, join the IRC channel and message an op.
As for the other Naruto movies, I have no information at this time, but I’ll look into it for you guys.
Conan-kun from AnimeOne asked me to post this. Consider it the official group stance.
Dear AonE fans,
After fansubbing Naruto for over 4 years, we regret to inform everyone that we will not be continuing with the series past season one (episode 220). This is for a variety of reasons but the main being that subbing the show is just no longer fun for a lot of the staff members. The show is also a tremendous use of resources for AonE which is hurting our other shows. Naruto Shippuden is not the only show that we are â€œdroppingâ€, we will also not be continuing with the Gundam SEED Destiny Special Editions. We will however be subbing the Stargazer OVAs. We ARE still subbing Daa! Daa! Daa!, so do not fear DDD fans.
By making these sacrifices, we can better concentrate on our current shows as well as possibly a new one that we are interested in. We will be doing everything possible to catch up on our backload and finish some old shows (BBB, SnS III, etc) before the next season begins.
These decisions have not come easy. There have been many heated discussions behind the scenes. We are facing an evolving fansubbing world, and unless we consolidate our resources we will be unable to keep up.
We are still recruiting for staff members, particularly Translators, QC, and TSers. Please see us on IRC in #aone-recruit (on irc.rizon.net) and private message an op.
Regardless of the show, AonE will continue to provide high quality fansubs for everyone to enjoy. Thank you for all your support!
There hasn’t been an update here in a while, so I figured maybe it was my turn to soapbox a bit. I want to explore a little bit of the history and mechanics of “filler” in anime. If you’re interested, read on …
And now ANN has actually taken those titles off of their site! As such this post is altered to fit their current information and really doesn’t offer up any hope at all of the end of Naruto fillers… so who knows how long they’ll continue… wtf?
for the love of humanity can’t it just end already?!
original post (behind the cut):
Earlier today TheWGP(Rizon IrCop) decided to delete most of the content of the AonE FTP in retaliation after we decided to deop him from #Animeone as he is no longer AonE staff.
You can expect delays on most of our projects, specially Naruto, since its entire folder on the ftp was wiped clean.
Needless to say, months of hard work have gone down the drain because of someone’s immaturity. We’re still waiting to see what actions Rizon management will take on this matter.
TheWGP has been fired/banned from Rizon by the Rizon management. We’re satisfied with this outcome and consider this issue closed.
We’d like to thank the Rizon management for their swift and appropriate action in this matter.
Now that that’s out of the way, we are now working on getting the projects back up to speed somehow.
Yo! Where the hell is the April GotVA article?!!1
Hey now, there’s no need to shout at me. And you’re in it. (And I’m a sword, awesome!)
