The Kabocha Wine dropped

This probably doesn’t come as a big surprise to those of you who’ve been waiting for ep7 since September, but this joint is dropped as AKF unfortunately no longer has time to translate. If you happen to know Japanese and want to revive this, feel free to drop me a line here or on Rizon and we may be able to get things going again. Until then though, this project is positively dead.

    just a question “suppose if a fan was willing to pay for translation would you consider hiring one and getting this or any other stalled show (say slam dunk) up and running?”

    It would be up to each individual project leader/group, but I don’t see why not. I’d certainly consider it for Kabocha.

    so what would be the cost for translation per episode?

    Do you know people that would translate, ZZZ?

    ZZZ, it varies. Please come on IRC (#saizen on Rizon) or email us ( if you want to discuss this in more detail.

    @ sangofe: well unfortunately no one at my end, infact i myself dont understand japanese or else i wouldn’t have let slam dunk and kabocha wine go to the verge of being stalled/dropped.

    So, what does this “since September” schedule mean for Taisho Baseball Girls?

    Taisho is not dropped, and very unlikely to get dropped either. 🙂

    Erhm. I don’t know. What’s the deal with this, Scab? I too remember it as a nice little anime.

    sorry to beat a dead horse, but i know Kevo over at ColorMeSubbed was interested in Kabocha. perhaps CMS and Saizen could revive this? i was offering my services to him as an editor/translator, but the current state of my computer makes anything more than watching…..precarious, to say the least. (*is currently booting solely from a CD*)

    Uh, well, Scab has been pretty much MIA for almost a year now, so I doubt we’ll do it without him.

    Same time, keep pumping out scripts and who knows what might happen. No promises though.

    Good luck 🙂

    I’d be personally interested, if it wasn’t for that I’ve got a busy real life, and too many projects at this time.

    I literally just discovered this anime yesterday, and I’ve re-watched all 7 episodes like 3 times now, I would love if this could ever be picked up again, and I’d be willing to give any donations if possible to make it happen. It’s so unfair how little attention this anime has, it’s so good…

    Never say never, but there are no plans to pick it up again. It’s hard enough finding any TLs who want to do old stuff, never mind a series with 95 eps.
