This has been delayed for two weeks for approximately no reason, so I figure it’s finally time. There are no fixes in this. My hope is that we will eventually release a proper BD batch of the entire season, although when that’ll happen I don’t know. Also, as of yesterday, Mezashite! Fansubs is two years old. Well, I think that first post was made just before midnight, so today is also sort of the anniversary. Let’s see how long we can keep it up.

Many things happened in the last few days. First…
So, as some of you may have heard, they finally decided to release BDs for Aikatsu S1! They’re selling them as two boxes costing ¥28,944 each (around 285$ currently) and will feature 4 discs per box for all 50 episodes of S1 in total. They’ll be coming out on the 5th November 2014 and 3rd February 2015. I’d totally go ahead and preorder them right now, but I’m so broke I can’t even pay for my server next month.
Anyway, there’s more! A really nice someone (again, thanks a lot!) uploaded the first S2 BDMV and will continue with atleast the second volume, so we’ll make sure BD releases will happen eventually in the near future! I hope you’re all ready for some glorious high quality performances.
Also, I hope 82 will be done within the next 24 hours. Ai katsu!
Alright, so since this is the first week of the new season finally (so soon?), we figured that we should probably announce since we probably aren’t going to change our minds like last season. From the artistic genius who brought you such classics as Elfen Lied and Nononono, we now present Gokukoku no Brynhildr (Brynhildr in the Darkness). Apparently there are dead girls, an astronomy club, and Taneda Risa. Well, that’s good enough for me. It also airs on Sundays, so Aikatsu releases should speed up considerably (except maybe this week, because new OP/ED and all that). So yeah, get excited for our new show.

And we’re finally ready to announce our new season plans. Prepare your hearts for the new yuri anime to heal your souls, Akuma no Riddle. Right after Sakura Trick, I bet you all thought you’d have to resort to rewatching, but worry no more; I‘ll be here with Mezashite to get you your Thursday fix. Let’s not forget Strick’s sister manga either: Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka? Fear not, for we’ll be subbing that too.
On the other hand, we have some bad new for our Aikatsu fans. Our experience has shown that with two new Thursday shows coming up, Aikatsu will be indefinitely delayed. Leave it to Japan to air all the good shows on exactly the same day every week. Sorry to say, but it just isn’t worth it to prioritize a show like this, especially since we’re the only subbers anyway.
There are just going to be delays of everything across the board. We don’t know when things will be out. Also, if you have something to say, come say it to [some of] us at Anime Boston.
Just so you all know, Sakura Trick will be delayed this week, as I just got all of my wisdom teeth removed at once and am sort of in recovery. Hopefully it’ll only be a day late.
Edit: FTW (FFF/UTW, which is basically URW from season one) is apparently going to do it, so we don’t feel obligated to do it ourselves anymore. Personally, I’m looking forward to watching the gg/URW sub war from the first season continue in the form of Commie/FTW. Instead, we’re doing Sakura Trick (I think).
With the announcement of a simulcast, we feel obligated to bring you an original translation (as we always do). Get ready to return to the realm of people who only think they have powers (inb4 KyouKana x chuu2 crossover battle to the death). Starts this week, so get ready for it.
The decision has been made: Mezashite! will be subbing KyoAni’s new anime, Kyoukai no Kanata, next season. And this time, the chuunibyou delusions are real. Too bad they didn’t keep the concept art…
That’s all we’ve got for you right now. We don’t think this is going to change, but other anime may be picked up or dropped as we see fit. Maybe. Don’t ask.
Every year, Akatsukin and I play a prediction game for the Saimoe tournament. In the past, we used spreadsheets and IRC, which was really cumbersome and annoying, so this year, I decided make a thing to make it less cumbersome and annoying. That thing comes in the form of a website-ish thing, found here. I figured that since it existed, I might as well make it open.
