Miscommunications happened, I\'m still in Japan, people thought others were doing stuff, in the end it turned out no one was doing anything.
Er, yeah, sorry about that. We\'ll be releasing as soon as I get back to the US in about 24 hours.
Well, maybe, maybe not.
Bad News Part
We\'re going to drop Ikoku Meiro no Croisee for the summer season.
Why? Simple. We\'re just way too understaffed. There\'s only so much that 5 people, who are mostly high school students with a lot of other time commitments, can do as far as subbing goes.
Yeah, just 5 of us were trying to sub 3 shows in one season. It\'s like trying to climb Mt. Everest in your damn boxers and with toothpicks for icepicks. Sure, you can try. You\'re just damn likely to fall short along the way.
Anyways, we still love the show, we love Yune, we love everything about it. It\'s just of our three shows, Ikoku has the least obligations for us.
We can\'t drop Ro Kyu Bu because we\'re doing a joint with EveTaku and it\'d simply be selfish and bastardly on our end to drop it.
Can\'t drop Nichijou because I won\'t allow it. I\'ve spent way too damn much time on this show to let it best us halfway through. (Not to mention it\'s our first \"real\" show\" that we picked up. It\'s got it\'s worth.)
Sort of Better News Part
In other new though, we\'re going to be completely revamping the way our team works.
\"What the hell does that mean?\" you ask?
Simple, I\'m going to have everyone relearn the way we sub. Everyone starts from square one. Everyone improves their skill. Everyone improves their speed. I realize that our recent releases have been dropping quality, so much to the point that I was forced to release a v0 for our latest release of Nichijou. This all going to change.
I\'m not going to say you\'ll see changes next week. No, that\'s simply unrealistic. But, I\'ll make damn sure that whatever happens, you\'ll only see improvements from here on out. Think of our Nichijou 15 as our rock bottom point. Things will only improve from there.
Many things have been factors in my recent changes of attitudes. Before, I was a gung-ho! type of person, steaming full speed ahead and not giving a damn about what most haters said. I mean, that\'s nice in a sense, but it won\'t work in some cases.
Anyways, I\'ve already deleted like 10 paragraphs because they were just me ranting, but point being.
We\'re at a shaky point in our subbing career, but we\'ll be back with nothing but improvements.
So yeah. Both of our typesetters are away from the internet (And likely out of the country, for that matter). Because of this, Nichijou 10+11 will continue to be on hold. Once one or the other shows up again we\'ll be sure to get started on working.
So as you might know, we\'ve been discussing the possibility of putting Nichijou Ep 10 on hold for this week due to final exams.
Turns out we\'ll be going forward with that plan. We saw exactly how bad our release was last week (Ep 09) when finals were still a week and a half later, so I can only imagine how terrible our release will be this week, 3 days before finals...
What we\'ll probably do for next week, is sub ep 11 as we would normally do, and then release ep 10 sometime during the week as school will be out then.
Also, our main typesetter/encoder/distro/everything else, msm595 will be going on a service trip to China 2 weeks so he\'ll be out on eps 11 and 12. During this time, lego6245 will be doing the typesetting and myself the encoding/distro/everything else.
Then, skipping forward to August, I myself will be in Japland for family visits (and comiket) for a month so... not sure how subbing is going to work. I\'ll likely have to wake up early (4-5AM) on sunday and sub with the team, who\'d be around 6-7PM, saturday and do the TL (and probably go back to sleep afterwards)
Anyways lots of chaos approaching in the upcoming summer. We\'ll try to keep stuff rolling :P
Now enjoy a beautiful picture of Misaka, who is completely unrelated to Nichijou
