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!
