And so, the final reaches its climax. Can Yawara bring home the gold? Or will her hopes be dashed at the last minute? Watch the latest Yawara batch in shiny Blu-ray quality to find out! This is a joint with Live-eviL.
Also, as some of our long-term fans probably already know, December 24th is CP Day, where we celebrate the life of our greatly missed fansubbing buddy, CP, who passed away several years ago. Yawara was a project very close to his heart, so putting out a seven-episode batch on what would have been his birthday seemed like a really good way to honor his memory. We miss you, pal ;__;
So it looks like Funimation has just announced (or they did a few days ago and we missed it >.>) that they’ve licensed the Attack on Titan OVAs and are putting out official English subtitled releases for them, which means we are now dropping this project. While I don’t imagine this will affect too many people, and it may even come as a surprise to some that we still counted it as an ‘active’ project despite not releasing any OVAs for nearly four years, I figured it was only fair to let you weirdly loyal people who were holding out for more OVAs know that there won’t be any more forthcoming.
On a personal level, it’s a bit of a shame that licensing has thwarted us from finishing this one up because I really enjoyed working on these OVAs and wanted to complete them for completeness’ sake, but staffing issues hampered us from achieving that, and just as there was a faint flicker of light at the end of the tunnel in the last few months, we’ve had the rug yanked out from under us. Oh well. Such is the life of a fansub group. We’re glad these gems are becoming available to a wider audience all the same.
A big, big thank you to Soldado Subs who jointed with us after the first OVA – without them, this project wouldn’t have been possible at all, so I’m grateful for what we managed to achieve together. I’d name everyone individually but I’d end up forgetting people (gimme a break, we started this in 2013!) so the fairest way is to say thanks to everyone who put time and effort into subbing the Attack on Titan OVAs, and thanks to everyone who watched and enjoyed our subs!
We interrupt our regularly scheduled program to bring you Pink vs. Red, the latest installment of the Power Rangers franchise. After years of frankly terrible leadership, the Red Ranger (Bryson Cummerbund) finds his position as the leader of the Power Rangers under threat when the Pink Ranger (Layla Huffenstuff) stages a coup against him. Will she prevail in freeing her fellow rangers from the tyranny of the Red Ranger, or will he win out and continue his reign of terror and abject failure unchecked? And what is the Green Ranger (Kai Kameron) doing while all this is going on? Sitting at home, watching TV and eating chips? All these questions and more will not be answered in the latest episode of Baby and MePink vs. Red:Rangers at War.
Here’s a bit of a special treat from us here at Saizen!
A few years ago, Shonen Jump interviewed some of their most prominent artists for the magazine’s 30th anniversary including group favorite Akira Toriyama! We at Saizen took it upon ourselves to subtitle the 45-minute-long first episode of this series of interviews featuring Toriyama. Without spoiling too much, Toriyama’s is a story of stealing money from your parents; ripping off the character designs from Star Wars; being too sleep-deprived to tell apart the traffic lights; and just generally winging it and somehow coming out on top in the end. If you’re a fan of Toriyama’s work or perhaps even an aspiring artist yourself, we highly recommend you give this baby a watch!
