Attack on Titan – 01 (Dropped)

And the slumbering behemoth known as Saizen awakens from its slumber and sets off on a frenzied rampage across the modern fansubbing landscape (Translation: We’ve picked up a spring season show!). So we present to you our newest offering, Attack on Titan, which is a visual feast of stunning scenery and gory bloodlust. In short, we’re jumping on the bandwagon here (in case you hadn’t noticed) but giants battering down walls and stomping on little tiny humans was too good to pass up on.

How far we’ll get into this series, we’re not actually sure. With the way streaming rules all these days, we were pretty surprised this was overlooked – but we’ve heard rumblings from the Funimation camp suggesting that they may have already bought the license. If this does turn out to be our one and only release of this series, please at least bask in the glory of the first episode as subbed by Saizen (and check out our nifty kara too!).

Looks like Funimation and Crunchyroll have finally announced their license and they’re starting their simulcasts on Sunday, apparently. We’ve released this episode as we were already pretty much done when the announcement was made, but sadly, this will be our one and only release. Thanks to everyone who got really hyped up about this, only to fall at the first hurdle, and a special thanks to triviper for putting in so much time to add all the bells and whistles that would have made for a great subbed series. Sadly, the attack ends here when we’ve barely begun.

Line Offline: Salaryman – 34-36

It’s that time of year again. Hibernation is over, and Brown’s been out hunting for the first time this year, so that he can feed his cubs. And look! He’s caught something already, and doesn’t it look delicious… Wait a minute, is that Connie?!

Prince of Tennis – The Ultimate Tennis Match at an English Castle!

Prince of Tennis - Movie (2011)

Yo, for all you Dragonball Z and tennis fans out there, we’re proud to announce the release of the second (and shittiest?) Prince of Tennis movie!
I don’t know who’s idea it was to sub this movie, but I’m pretty sure most of the staff regret working on it. lol
What’s even better is that we’re able to release this on the 1st of April. A pretty funny coincidence. ^^
If you are one of those that enjoyed this movie, and would like to see it with higher quality subs, this is definitely the release to get, however. =)

One Piece – 01

And here’s our brand new project for you! Ruri-Saizen have always had a love affair with pirates (all that debauchery and pillaging is cool in our book), so what better way to scratch our eyepatch itch than to sub one of the greatest pirate shows ever created. Yes, One Piece may have started back in 1999 and it may be one of the most recognised anime shows coming out of Japan at the moment, having racked up a total of 589 episodes on its way to worldwide acclaim – but we decided that the only way to do this series justice was by starting from episode 1.

So while you finish gorging on your Easter chocolate, here’s episode 1 of One Piece to get you over the post-Easter blues.

DISCLAIMER: Even though we are releasing this using the Saizen and Ruri distribution networks, we have tagged it [Blackbeard] for legal reasons – so that those pesky licensing companies don’t realise that we’re the ones who subbed it. That’ll fool them 😀

DISCLAIMER #2: We stole borrowed the video of this episode from another group at gunpoint after some gentle persuasion. We were going to make our own logo to cover our tracks, but that was too much :effort: we wanted to acknowledge their encoding prowess.
