We need new blood

All your favorite series are stalled ’cause we don’t have enough active staff to work on them. Only you (yes, YOU) can change that.

Go to our Join page or bug us on IRC in #saizen^recruits or #saizen on the Rizon network (Disclaimer: all positions will be tested)

  1. Double denied: first off, there’s a reason we dropped Ring no Crapero years ago, and secondly , this request is at the wrong place.

  2. I can say with 99.9% certainty that we won’t sub this, sorry. Takes a lot of effort to fansub, and I don’t think anybody is willingly taking on a 136 ep series, when there is a lot of other shows which are also interesting and more importantly… shorter.

  3. That’s fine, then. Thanks for the response.

    (*notices the fact that Saizen is subbing Captain Tsubasa, which is 128 eps long.*)

  4. Heh, looked like a troll request. I mean, Saizen would take roughly 20 years to finish Kochikame. They’ve already got several projects going, so any more long series simply aren’t doable. It would take a singularly dedicated group to do it, one that could do 1 or more episodes per week consistently.

    I’d like the two 80s Jack London anime TV Specials to be tackled someday, Call of the Wild and White Fang, but I haven’t been able to find quality raws for either.

  5. I never saw the anime version of White Fang, but I remember watching the anime version of Call of the Wild a long time ago. However, it was the English dubbed version. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  6. Read “A Bazillion Staff” as “A Brazilian Staff.”

    Was confused at first, but then I somehow managed to reason it out in my head: “Oh yeah, I’m sure Brazilians would be up on their football more than FD.”

    Then I realized it was “bazillion.” :>

  7. just wanted to say I’m really, really, looking forward to more subbed muumin episodes if you guys are still planning on working on the series โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ thanks for the hard work

  8. I think that maybe before asking here you can check the project page and if it isn’t there it might be dropped.

  9. We will ALWAYS announce if we drop an active project. It doesn’t happen often, and usually only licensing forces our hand, but yeah, we’d tell you guys first when a decision like that is made. So don’t ask ๐Ÿ˜›

  10. Out of our 10 dropped projects, only Ring ni Kakero 1, Slam Dunk, The Kabocha Wine, and GaoGaiGar were dropped to other reasons than licensing too.

  11. Main timer for Beast Saga, Captain Tsubasa, and Kuroko’s Basketball said he doesn’t know if he’ll be back. And the timer for H2 broke his elbow, so we’d need a couple of timer-kun’s. Or one very hard working one ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. Is there still a need for a QC for New Prince of Tennis Specials? Recruitment page lists it but the join page doesn’t, I’m just making sure as I am interested. Thanks!

      1. Okay thanks! And one more thing– is the QC needed urgently? I want to apply for the spot but I’m only available by October 14 (since finals week). But after that, I have no classes for the next three weeks.

      1. @Someone I knowo that, however that place is only allowed for pretencious wankers, as it seems it never allows anyone else to go on there.

        Besides, Nyaa is more known. Lets just get the show subbed already, its too important of a series to leave it in the dust.

        1. “Lets just get the show subbed already, its too important of a series to leave it in the dust.”

          Did you mean “Lets get some more staff already, Saizen’s too important of a group to be left in the dust.” :)?

          1. Just so you guys know: just because one member of the team wants a project, it doesn’t nesscarely happen. You need a full fansub team to make it happen. (Translator, timer, editor, typesetter, encoder, 3 quality checkers). So at the very minimum you need 4 people on projects in Saizen.

            1. You mean, you need eight, not four, to start a project in Saizen. We’d never cut down on staff and risk our high quality releases just to get a project off the ground ๐Ÿ˜›

  13. Yup, we’ve got AMS and kokujin-kun too…

    But we need more quality checkers!

    I’m an editor, but due to the lack of quality checkers I have to help out and QC the other projects, which takes time away from my editing, and which also slows down our releases!

    1. I have a request: can you please use this thread just to enquire about joining the Saizen fansub team?

  14. Hi there i wanna ask do you guys still have the op english lycris song of The Kabocha Wine and the ending? if you do please share them with me

              Also, lol, tenken

          1. Ah, that template …

            The relic that all goodly trunzlators have made it their life goal to seek out. The legendary artifact which holds the awesome power that grants enlightenment to those who lack it. Nothing compares to that almighty template …

            Too bad nobody knows what it is.

      1. I am good trunzlator of many animes. Can I join your group? All I ask is access to “that template”, for compensation, though. Thanx you.

            1. The glorious template saves the day yet again. *holds up template in the air like the triforce*

            2. I just guesslate/guesslate check a bit (so I can obtain “that template” in the end), here and there, and I still live as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. If I were to apply for QC-er would somebody help explain IRC and the FTP programs/where to get the correct ones?

    1. “that template”?

      Teyuga, you’re more than welcome to take a test. Of course we’d help you on your way ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Sorry, this may be the wrong place to ask but… Are there any plans to finish kuroko no basket third season BDs?

      1. Sorry, I’m new to fansubs, I just wanted to know if the project was still alive and I don’t know where I could have asked. The last update was a year ago and I really loved the first two seasons that saizen did of the series.
        Sorry, sorry ๐Ÿ™

  17. May I help with XDCC? I already have experience setting up everything any plenty of bandwidth/free space.

  18. “Not to sound desperate or anything but… WHY WON’T YOU JOIN US?” <– Because subbing is "Not cool/badass/tight/dope/awesome/kakkoii/supah/teh shizzle/da bomb/sugoi/etc" anymore(at least for a lot of people out there in the vast interwebs). ๐Ÿ˜‰

        1. Rlee. Did you notice where you’re posting? Posting in this way, and at the wrong place makes the chance of us listening much slimmer.

  19. Is the recruitment page itself up-to-date? You’d think quality checkers would be the easiest to come by. ๐Ÿ˜ก
