An update (My Annette/Little Women II)

I know there have been some questions asked about My Annette and Little Women II - Jo's Boys and the fact that we haven't released episodes for either series in over a month.  I'll go ahead and give everyone an update on what's happening.

Basically, it is my fault that releases are not forthcoming, and a lot of it had to do with my health.  Over the past couple of months, my health hasn't been too good (I've actually been coughing a lot these past couple of days), and when I'm healthy enough to be able to do fansubbing work, I'm usually working on Eriko, or I'm sewing my costume for an anime convention.  So, I feel that I owe everyone a status report on what's happening with those two projects, as they and Lucy-May are the only projects that are under our direct control.

My Annette (last release: Episode 33, 15 episodes to go)

I actually have episodes 34 and 35 ready to go.  However, I'm withholding them because they need to be watched together with episode 36, which has already been translated and timed.  It needs to be edited, typeset, and encoded.  Episode 37 has already been translated, and I'm translating episode 38 as of this writing (I'm halfway through that episode).  My goal is to get it all translated by mid-July, with the final releases before the third anniversary celebration.

Little Women II - Jo's Boys (last release: Episode 35, 5 episodes to go)

I have the translated scripts for episodes 36 and 37 from my translator, which I need to check.  We should have them out sometime within the next week or so, if everything goes well and my health manages to get better within the next month.

I apologize for the inconvenience, and I will try my best to get things ready as my health permits.


  1. Thank you for the update! As always a big thanks for your efforts and imo your health is more important. So I hope you feel better soon!

    Also, I really want to start watching Little Women II- Joe's Boys but I think I should probably watch the first series (Little Women) any idea where I can find subbed ones of that series? I've looked and had no luck so I thought I'd ask here.

    Thanks again!

  2. You're working on a cosplay for an anime convention?! Awesome! I'd love to see it!

    And it's okay if you don't get everything out. Considering how your health has been fluctuating based on what you told us, you should probably get as much rest as possible or even see a doctor. Whatever it is you're afflicted with, it sounds serious.

  3. Thanks for your update and your great devotion to old school anime. I wish you a good, define and quick recovery and my thought are with you. Health is way more important than fansubing witch can patienly wait until the sun shin brighter.

  4. Thanks for the updates and for all the releases so far.
    You've been a wonderful source of glorious WMT, which is my favourite anime series. You've done a great job at translating the the hidden gems everyone ignores.
    Trapp Family Story and Swiss Family Robinson are other great WMT series, I hope you'll watch them someday.
    Don't worry about the relases, we're very patient :)
    Take care!

  5. First of all Thanks so much subbing Tonde Buurin
    Please do take care your body, I'm very patient on this series

    Thanks !

    1. Well, Tonde Buurin got last release almost two months ago, and this makes just one episode in this year! I hope this series won't get stuck again...

      Regardless of that, best wishes and good luck.

  6. Get healthy soon! You do an awesome work but... your health is more important then anything else. Take care.

  7. So sorry to hear that you're ill, Licca. Take it easy. You can't replace your health.
