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.
After 9 hours of hourly releases, our April fool’s “joke” comes to an end.
We’ve thoroughly murdered our server both with torrents and a DDoS attack in the middle of the day, and so we’re going to give it some much needed rest.
While we won’t be doing hourly releases, you can expect to see a few more this weekend as
we I try to clear some backlog before the new season starts. That should leave us me free of some guilt to move on to new projects.
For those of you who didn’t believe we could do it, the joke’s on you!
