Winter 2017 Plans

Happy new year! Fuck 2016, y’know? Too bad 2017 will be just as bad (if not worse) and you all know it. At least Führer Trump will make anime great again.

Fall 2016 Plans

Request for help: donations

In the just over three years that DDY has been in the scene, I have never made a push for donations. When I have mentioned them, it was only for Blurays that weren’t appearing online at the normal places. I simply never needed them; I had plenty of disposable income from work and could afford to fund all of our work on my own.

Things have changed. At the beginning of August, I found out that my employer wasn’t willing to be flexible with my class schedule anymore, despite this being my last semester of school and my 2 years with the company while taking classes. On top of that, I became ineligible for financial aid this year. If only one of these things had happened, I might have been able to cope, but as it is, all of my savings will be tied up in tuition/fees and cost of living while I try to find a way to pay for what’s left.

Because of that, I am faced with the unfortunate need to ask something I never thought I would: your help paying for our servers.

I’ve already made some significant changes to our infrastructure to reduce costs and possibly increase performance at the same time. Below you can see the breakdown of our expected costs. For right now, it looks like I’ll need help for 4-5 months. I should be able to find a job soon after graduating in December. If that is not the case, I will update you all here.

Encode Server 54.12
Storage/FTP 54.5
Site 3.49
Seedbox 13
Total 125.11

If you like the work that DDY does and are willing and capable of helping, please consider donating. A few donation options:

  1. Paypal: Email us directly at [email protected] or message me on IRC to arrange a paypal donation.
  2. Flattr: Contribute on Flatter here.
  3. Patreon: Contribute on Patreon here.
  4. Other: Comment with a valid email below and we’ll get in contact.

If we receive any donations, we will make the amounts and what for/when we are using it public here.

Thank you,

Banner Contest Results

So, we would like to thank everyone for participating. In the end, we’ve selected 21 different banners of about 60 total to add to the site. We honestly didn’t expect this many submissions. If your banner didn’t make it, there’s a chance we might do this again in the future if there’s enough interest. Of course, you could just make banners anyway and PM them to us whenever, but where’s the fun in that?

Voting was close, with each banner 1st place to 5th place within 1 vote of one another. Very nearly had a tie.
So, onto the results. (Click Continue Reading)

DameDesuYo Banner Contest

August 15th Edit:
The contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who participated! We should have the results to share within the next 48 hours, so stay tuned. Emails will be sent out to the top 5 banner submitters in regards to the prize, your own Did You Know on the sidebar, and of course we will compile a list of every banner we decide to use. Even if your banner doesn’t make the cut, we thank you for trying.

Summer 2016

Hello, eager anime fans. You’ve come here looking for new adventures, new stories and probably 2D girls to fall in love with. (Don’t listen to what anyone says, it’s perfectly normal.) You want to be reassured that DDY will translate your waifu’s secret messages spoken in a secret language to you.

Unfortunately, this season you will need to look elsewhere.

DDY will be taking a break this season from airing anime to do a couple things. First, unstall and hopefully complete all our stalled TV and Bluray shows. And second, do some home-improvement.

What do I mean by that? I mean a whole bunch of things from training our staff on new positions and automating some of our workflow to redesigning our back-end server infrastructure from the ground up.

Why now? Because we honestly weren’t interested in much this season and the shows we had looked at a bit are already being done in other groups. It was just the right time to do it.

We’ve got a lot planned. And even though you might not notice the changes on the surface, we hope that they’ll lead to faster and higher quality releases as well as make our lives easier.

Edit: We ARE still continuing Re:Zero.

You’re a bunch of fools if you think I’m not about to lie to you.

For many seasons now, anime has been in a dark age. Too many were the shows that went without good subtitles. Too far between were the fansub releases… then along came Eien.

That beautiful, glorious bastard. He promised to make fansubbing great again; to bring about a world where a volume of blurays is released every single weekday.

But I am sick and tired of 90% of all new subtitles going to the top 1% of anime fans, leaving next to nothing for the bottom 99%. Eiencare is a great step forward, but it does not go nearly far enough towards true, universal subtitles.

So that’s why I want to take Eien’s “trickle-down fansubs” at least 9 steps further. From this moment on, DDY will be releasing an episode or volume of blurays every hour.

DDY: A Fansub to Believe In.

Looking for cappers (TV-recorder)

We are currently looking for a capper (TV-recorder) who would work with DDY starting next season. We would prefer an exclusive relationship for security and reliability reasons but that is not mandatory. 

If you are interested and meet the following criteria, please either contact me, begna112, on rizon IRC or email us at [email protected]

We are interested if you

  • Live in japan
  • Have access to several or all of the following TV channels:
  • —Tokyo MX
  • —TV Tokyo
  • —BS11
  • —MBS
  • —TV Aichi
  • —ATX HD (even if you only have this, please contact)
  • Have a decent upload speed – the faster the better
  • Have or are willing to get the required equipment to cap (easiest with a desktop computer)
  • —DDY may be willing to contribute some of the cost.

Welcome to the new site.

I completely broke our sites images about a month ago when I was trying to optimize it for faster load times. So, I had no choice but to make the best of it and start over. If you find anything wrong with it, let us know here and we’ll try to get it fixed.

If you’re on Android using Chrome mobile, use a better OS and/or browser that handles table styling properly.

Summer 2015 Plans

All right everyone, it’s that time of the year again. We’ve had the poll and a teaser posted a little while so you may already have figured out what our plans are but here we go.

Denpa Kyoushi Dropped

Getting straight to the point of this post: Denpa Kyoushi has been dropped.

The biggest reason? Nearly everyone working on it hates it.


Before you make a grab for your nearest pitchfork, our dislike of the show wasn’t nearly enough to warrant dropping it at first. You probably would have never seen an episode past 3 or 4 from us if that were the case (we were already making “jokes” about dropping it that early). And I guess it wasn’t all bad. We loved “admiring” the show’s QUALITY animation.

We dropped it mostly to lighten the workload on a few members. Now it’s just vampires and panties and boob ribbons every week for us, and no more of this goddamn guy.

So I’m sorry to the people who actually enjoyed this show, and I’m even more sorry that Funi probably put one of their worst TLs on the show for the simulcast, but we do not have the drive nor the time to dedicate to this show when we have projects we would much rather work on instead. You could say it’s completely our fault for picking up one too many shows, and you would probably be right.

Spring 2015 Plans

April is upon us and with it comes the beginning of the spring season. We saw what you would like us to sub in the poll and we’re glad that most of you have tastes similar to our own. So, with no further ado, read on past the break for our plans.

The Return of Direct Downloads

Some of you may have noticed that DDL links have been reappearing on the site over the past couple of hours. We’ve figured out how to easily integrate Mega.co.nz uploads into our release process and that’s how we’ll be offering it from now on.

We’ve tried to retroactively update the links on every release post to date (with the exception of a few shows that were never batched). So, if you find a DDL link that doesn’t point to Mega or doesnt point to the right folder on Mega, let us know. Remember, you can get easy access to all of our torrents and DDL links by clicking on the “Projects” tab in the navigation bar under the banner.

A note: our Mega downloads use free accounts. This means that each of our accounts gets 10GB of traffic every 30 minutes. Around release times, we might hit this limit very quickly. We ask that you be patient and try again in 15 minutes or so if you can’t use the torrents.

And lastly, I’d like to ask again that, if you can afford it, please help us meet our server costs by donating through the Gratipay widget on the right. Every little bit helps and just 25$/week would help us break even. If we go over this amount, we’ll first use extra funds to get a paid Mega account to help with bandwidth constraints.
