We here at Saizen (along with our best buds, Ruri) present a bit of a change of pace from our usual sports-heavy release schedule to bring you Mitsuwano (Three Rings), a one-shot slice of life story about Mai, Midori, and Riko – three girls who are training to be maiko, which are considered to be apprentice geiko (the Kyoto equivalent of geisha). We hope you enjoy this brief glimpse into a section of Japanese culture that’s otherwise glossed over in anime, with a side helping of angst as the girls find out that the world of the geiko is just as competitive as any other.

And a few cultural notes to help you understand some of the finer points of the geiko world: Girls training to be maiko and geiko live in an okiya (a boarding house) run by a proprietress with the title “okaa-san” (Lit: “Mother”), which is a little confusing in this anime because the Mother of this particular boarding house is Riko’s biological grandmother. But the okiya is a tight-knit, familial environment in general, meaning that being related doesn’t elevate you above your “sisters and you are expected to perform the same chores, such as preparing meals, doing the laundry, and cleaning the boarding house. It’s also important to note that the anime takes place in Kyoto, which has its own dialect characterized by its politeness and modesty, to the point where it’s viewed as boorish for a native of Kyoto to use standard phrases instead of their Kyoto equivalents. This polite streak extends as far as calling the stove “Mr. Stove”, so if you’re wondering why everyone’s talking like they’re from a forgotten age, that’s why.

So without further ado, step into the colorful world of the geiko and the apprentices working their way up the chain to be seen as true daughters of Kyoto!

Hey, sup? Been waiting for Kuroko’s Basketball S2 Blu-Ray batch? Good news. Here it is.

It is a quick batch that was made to collate Kuroko S2 on Blu-Ray in 720p & 1080p respectively. There were no corrections made to any of the files in this batch. It is just to make things simpler for everyone. The batch includes episodes 26-50 (including 41.5) as well as the 9 S2 blooper volumes.

I will probably make corrections and release a complete series batch after the completion of S3, but that’s off in the horizon for the moment. We do also have plans to do the S2 fan disc currently, so you can look forward to that.

On a related topic, we are still looking for the volumes 3-9 Blu-Rays for S3. If you come across them, please give us a heads up.

Cheers, and enjoy the anime.

One more season to go!

And… we’re still not done this week. Here’s the next ep of Major Season 1 for you!

Goro is searching for more teammates to take on the Shopping District team and Sawamura is still bullying Komori in this one. What a dick.

Anyway, I hope you like it. I’m gonna get back to translating the next ep now…

Oh, hello there. Did you think we were done this week? Nah, B. Meteor Jam! Here’s the last blooper volume on Blu-Ray for Season 2… Volume 9!

So, with this, Kuroko Season 2 on Blu-Ray has been completed. I will be trying to throw together a batch in the next week for this, which should clean up a lot of our Nyaa page and make things easier for people in grabbing the season. There will be no corrections in this batch. It’ll just be the files put together into a single torrent for people. I will talk more about our Kuroko plans when I release this batch.

Until then, as always, enjoy!

Hey, here’s the next Kuroko’s Basketball Bloopers volume. Imayoshi goes into a little more detail about the trap waiting for Seirin after their win against his Touou team. Oh, there are a couple other clips too, haha!

Anyway, enjoy the short jokes. One more to go now before we can batch up S2. Enjoy!

Marchin’ toward a S2 batch, here’s the Season 2, Volume 7 Blooper package. Hopefully we’ll be seeing each other again soon.

Till then.
