A bit of a question for everyone

This is a question not really related to fansubbing, but more of a personal question that I would like to pose to everyone.

The Les Miserables US tour is coming to around where I live in May, and I would like to purchase tickets to the performance.  As I have never went to a performance of this kind, I would like opinions about what seats I should get.

The concert hall where the performance will be held has a huge "orchestra" lower level seating, a lower balcony above this lower level that wraps around half of the concert hall, and a much higher upper balcony that is above this lower balcony.

Currently, the ticket office for this venue is not selling tickets (they won't start selling until February), but I can get tickets from other ticket vendors.  I can get seats in the back of the upper balcony for about US$70, seats on the sides of the each balcony for about US$150, and seats in front of each balcony and in the front orchestra seats for about US$250.

Basically, which seats should I go for when I purchase my tickets?  (I may purchase multiple tickets depending on what happens.)

In this episode, Rina learns a bit more about Masahiro.  He invites Rina to watch a boxing match where he is one of the contenders, but due to obligations in her own kingdom, Rina had to miss the boxing match, and she was unable to contact Masahiro as she did not have his cell phone number.

Porphy's Long Journey Episode 11 released!

In this episode, Porphy's father proceeds to purchase a gasoline pump, and goes through the necessary steps to accomodate it.  Porphy does help out, but he forgets that he should not do things to the exclusion of everything else.

This is the last episode of Porphy no Nagai Tabi that we will release this year.  We will resume work on this series on January 3rd, 2012.

Hiatus will begin tomorrow

We will be on hiatus starting tomorrow, and we should be back in operation on January 3rd, 2012.

We do have a release or two almost ready to go tonight right before we go on hiatus.

I also would like to apologize for not responding to e-mails; I simply have not had the time to properly give each e-mail the attention it deserves.

1.  We are approaching our hiatus for the Christmas holidays.  Currently, we anticipate having one more episode of Porphy out and one more episode of My Annette out before the hiatus.  (Due to unexpected circumstances, I have not been able to devote time to translating them this weekend, which is why we don't have that many episodes in the pipeline.)

2.  As mentioned earlier, we'll be off hiatus on January 3rd, 2012.  We may not have anything ready to release then, but we should be back in operation by then.

3.  Porphy episodes 12 and 13 will be released at the same time.  Those two episodes go together and need to be watched together in order for things to make sense.

Little Women II - Jo's Boys Episode 17 released!

That was the only good-bye he gave the boys, for they were all talking the matter over in the barn when he came down, and he told Nat not to call them. The wagon stood at the door, and Mrs. Bhaer came out to speak to Dan, looking so sad that his heart smote him, and he said in a low tone,

"May I say good-bye to Teddy?"

"Yes, dear; go in and kiss him, he will miss his Danny very much."

No one saw the look in Dan's eyes as he stooped over the crib, and saw the little face light up at first sight of him, but he heard Mrs. Bhaer say pleadingly,

"Can't we give the poor lad one more trial, Fritz?" and Mr. Bhaer answer in his steady way,

"My dear, it is not best, so let him go where he can do no harm to others, while they do good to him, and by and by he shall come back, I promise you."

- Little Men, Chapter 6

This episode is the aftermath of what happened at the end of episode 16.

Winter 2012 anime season

We currently have no plans to do a series in the Winter 2012 anime season.  None of the series listed meet our requirements for us to even consider doing them.

On a more short term note, we do have Little Women II episode 17 almost ready to go, with Porphy no Nagai Tabi 10 not far behind.

December scheduling

On a more short term note, we do have some Porphy episodes just about ready to go, which will be released tonight.

As this is December, we will be ramping down our operations for the Christmas holidays.  As currently planned, we will probably go on hiatus starting December 21st, and will resume operations on January 2nd.  However, these dates may shift depending on how the schedule of my staff members pans out within the next couple of weeks.

We will try to have at least a couple more episodes of My Annette out before the hiatus (Episode 4 is about to go into encoding; I need to check it first).  My translator for Little Women II - Jo's Boys has given me the script for episode 17, and that should be out fairly soon as well.  I will check with the Wasurenai QC folks on the status of episode 10 of Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch Pure, which happens to be one of my very favorites in the series.  Porphy's Long Journey we can probably get close to the 1/4 mark, which I admit is not the best place to leave people in suspense.

In conclusion, this month will be fairly light in terms of releases.
