Idol Densetsu Eriko 26 released!




This episode begins a fairly long story arc that won't finish until almost episode 40 or so.  In this episode, Rei finds out that all is not what it seems when it comes to who is her family and who isn't.

This marks the half-way point of the series.  The next quarter of the series will be pretty much covering this story arc which will reveal Rei's parentage and who her family truly is.  In addition, there will be a mini-arc coming up involving Rei, Eriko, and probably one of the stranger auditions that they will have to face.  The end of that story arc will correspond almost to the end of the main story arc here.

Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch Episode 24 released!




This episode features Lucia, Hanon, and Rina going to a karaoke parlor to relax.  However, the "karaoke parlor" is actually a really creative illusion which turns out to be a trap for the Mermaid Princesses.

An update

Long story short, both myself and my timer has had real-life events that prevented either of us from working on our fansubbing work.

For me, I was actually out of the country for the last week of February up to mid-March on vacation.  After that, I went to an anime convention, and after that, I got sick again with this nasty cough.  The doctor said that it was a viral infection, so they couldn't really do much for it, and I had to pretty much wait it out.

In any case, I should be getting back to translating soon.  I really need to work on the next episode of Lucy-May of the Southern Rainbow, and I'm going to be translating one of the next two episodes of Tonde Buurin (it's going to be the solar car race episode, which is one of my personal favorites).

Eriko and Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch Pure will continue as resources allow, as most of that work is off of our hands.

Idol Densetsu Eriko 24 released!




In this episode, Eriko debuts a new song.  However, she ends up having to deal with coming down with an illness right before the concert.

This episode is the first episode of what I think is my favorite Tamura Eriko song in the entire series, "Honki".

I will be posting something about our current status sometime later tonight.

Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch Pure Episode 23 released!




In this episode, Mikeru's servants attempt to demolish the concert hall where the Mermaid Princesses were attending a concert.  However, they did not think their plan through as even their combined might was worthless against someone born with the Panterassan bloodline.

Idol Densetsu Eriko Episode 23 released!




In this episode, Eriko has to somehow get to a concert around a huge traffic jam.  Kazuki calls Yasuko, who arrives on her bike and proceeds to do some rather creative lane-splitting and off-road riding, which topped off with Eriko getting into a helicopter and arriving onto the stage in what is probably her most dramatic entrance until the last episode.

An update

I apologize for the lack of activity over the last month and a half.  This might have been the first time in a long while where I could actually concentrate on translating.

Long story short, this year's cedar allergy season was probably the worst ever since I've moved down to this city.  It hit me so hard that I had to miss several days of work, plus I could barely think when I could get to work.  I pretty much could only do simple encoding tasks which I had set up before (and written down rather copious notes), although that ended up being fraught with peril (I somehow managed to try to jam an encode into the size of a floppy disk).

Furthermore, I will not be fansubbing for most of March as well due to personal obligations.  Therefore, in this short window where I feel well enough to do some work that requires thinking, I will try to get some things out that are already in the pipeline.

Thank you all for your patience and support.

Little Women II - Jo's Boys Episode 40 released!




In the last episode, Dan finally leaves Plumfield with Mr. Page.  Life goes on for the rest of the residents of Plumfield, until it is time for them to leave as well.

This concludes our work for Little Women II - Jo's Boys.  As per my usual custom, I would like to make some concluding remarks.

This series is actually one of our shorter projects, and yet it was a long and difficult journey for us to finish it.  I would personally like to thank my translator for this series, who has basically worked to get all the episodes to me in a timely fashion.  Something that is as simple as a story for children are often the most difficult series to get right, and it was a pleasure for us to bring this story to life.

We would like to thank you all for supporting us throughout this project, even when we were having trouble moving forward with it.  We would like to apologize for all the delays this project incurred as a result.

We will have a batch torrent available later this week after I do some version 2 encodes.  I do know for sure that episodes 1 and 38 will have version 2 encodes due to consistency issues.

Little Women II - Jo's Boys Episode 36 released!




This episode corresponds to the chapter in the novel that involves Prince Charlie and how Dan was able to tame it.  In my opinion, I think this episode was very well done by the animators, and it definitely captures the essence of what was happening.
