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.

Happy New Year! Winter 2015 Plans Edition

With the winter season quickly approaching, we figured it was time to make some announcements, including our winter picks and some updates. Note, however, that these are still subject to change especially in the case that one is not simulcast.

But first! Some New Year’s greetings from the staff:

aVF: fap fap fap and 2014 is gone. hope 2015 will be better
Saeval: So, do we have enough money for our Japan trip yet?
itsP: shut up, i’m trying to sleep
Yuuki-chan: have a fappy new year :P
Tenzinn: fansubs a bad
Rageo: the struggle is real
Owningmatt93: I like it here, it’s warm
Usome: do i have to do it now?
Period: mfw pupa was best show this season
Hybrid21: When will begna112 start paying his staff like commie?
Steinr: you should hear me when i get drunjmkl
Calyrica: May you watch more anime in 2015 than in 2014, and may your hard drive be more full than my tinder inbox!

Merry Christmas

Can you tell we’re excited?

Begna’s asleep and it’s already Christmas day where I am, so on behalf of all the staff at DDY we wish you a Merry Christmas.
Remember to celebrate in the traditional Japanese way, with a KFC bucket.

What you see above is from Episode 14 (OVA1) of Flag. While we had hoped to have this done for you before Christmas, alas it was not to be. However, it’s not forgotten and we fully intend to finish off the series. The staff responsible for the insufferable delays will not receive a gift from Begna-claus because they were bad.

We’ll have an announcement of our Winter 2015 season plans soon enough.

We’d also like to remind everyone that were still hiring for most positions. Do you know Japanese? Come be a Translation Checker. Consider yourself an artist? Try your hand at Typesetting. Want to be fawned over by all the staff and heralded as a hero? Then Timing is the job for you. Head over to our recruitment page to learn more.

Feel free to comment or ask questions in the comments section of this post.

Fall 2014

Hello everyone, this is going to be a lengthy post so get ready.

First of all, for those of you that don’t care about the rest, our plan for this airing season is just to do Trinity Seven. It is being worked on now and should be out soon. There may be a small chance of something else being picked up that no other group is doing but don’t take that as a commitment. You’ll find out why we’re only doing one show later in this post.

Second, as some of you may already be aware, a few of our members have left DDY for other groups. They have left for reasons of their own and whether or not we agree with their reasons and what those reasons are will not be discussed so don’t ask.

However, these members were also posed to become DDY’s next in line to be the power players and had already been acting as project leaders in the group. To lose them is definitely a hit to our established workflow. In light of their departure, DDY has had to take a look at what we had committed to doing and how sustainable that level of work truly is. As such, we will be dropping some BD projects, at least for the time being. The ones we will still be doing and their statuses are:

  • Love Lab – vol 5 @ QC
  • Noragami – vol 4 @ encode
  • No Game No Life – vol 1 @ QC/release
  • Nourin – vol 1 @ release, vol 2-4 @ TS/QC
  • Black Bullet – vol 2 @ release
  • Brynhildr – 11.5 OVA @ Edit
  • Brynhildr – BDBOX 2 @ encode
  • Soul Eater Not! – BD availability (this is a maybe)

Essentially, we will finish what we have started (including Flag!), at least. We may decide to re-add some of the BDs from the Summer season if we have time, but no promises right now. Hanamono is currently stalled at TL as the translator is currently travelling for work, giving aid for the current enterovirus D68 outbreak in the midwest US. This is still a pretty sizable list as you may have noticed. We intend to knock these BDs out in favor of doing more airing shows this season.

And the last announcement: I will be taking a break from fansubbing and DDY for at least this season but perhaps indefinitely. The past few months have seen my personal life become more and more complicated as I dealt with work, school, large scale family issues and personal issues as well. I’ve been under a lot of stress and, at some point, fansubbing became both my crutch to keep going and my excuse to keep putting everything else off. I can no longer do this given the events happening in my life. I also have to realize that, to an extent, I have been changed by fansubbing and the community around it, in some ways for the worse. I regret this deeply and hope that I can recover my true self again.

So, I will be taking a break to get more in touch with my real life and get my priorities straightened out. I will continue to help the active DDY staff transition into this new phase in the group’s life and will be available to them any time that they need me. I am fully confident that they can and will continue to provide quality subs that you are sure to enjoy.

One last thing, part of my departure includes my ability to financially bankroll the group’s server. I have, in the past, taken it upon myself to pay for our server and accept donations as simply a lessening of my personal load and asked for no more than 50$/mo from our fans. I can’t keep this going forever as I am also about to have a new drain on my income that I cannot avoid (part of my family issues). So I’m asking for your help. We recently moved to a newer, cheaper server that costs a little over 100$/mo to keep running. So I’m asking that, if you enjoy DDY subs, please donate with the widget in the sidebar.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I or one of the other staff will be sure to answer if we can.

Rokujouma no Shinryashouka!? 12

There will be no batch for this show and the BDs are cancelled. On top of this, the WUG mini series is also dropped.

Unfortunately, Floris257, BakaProxy and Sereft have decided to leave DDY which has resulted in both of these things.

Also, if there are any issues with this release, feel free to message Floris257 on rizon about it.

On the “Drop TT” initiative.

As some of you may know, DameDesuYo has signed Daiz’s Drop TokyoTosho manifesto. I would like to clarify our position as it was not included in the document.

DameDesuYo will NOT stop uploading to TT.

I repeat: DameDesuYo will not stop uploading to TT.

However, I feel strongly enough about TT being a shitty content distribution platform that I was willing to put our name on it. In the months since this document first started circulating, TT was made aware almost immediately and, yet, nothing has changed. For a site that relies almost entirely on fansub groups, you’d think they would care about our input.

And, regardless of the technical aspects that make TT a pain to use, the fact remains that traffic from TT is exponentially outweighed by traffic from Nyaa. So there are two options here, I guess. First, no one actually uses TT and all the ruckus is being whipped up by just a few anons or long standing “enemies” of Nyaa. Or, second, the userbase of TT is shockingly non-interactive.

Feel free to voice your opinion in the comments. Who knows, we may someday drop TT for real. But that day is not today.

Captain Earth Dropped

I’ve got some bad news to share with you all today.

We’re officially dropping Captain Earth. Our partner in the joint, Toki-doki, is unable to continue working on it and we don’t have the staff to pick it up as a DDY exclusive show. You can read more about the situation if you are curious at Toki-doki’s website.

I’m sorry to those of you who were following our releases. At least this happened at a nice stopping point in the anime.

Summer 2014 Plans

With the fast-approaching ending of this godawful season, it’s finally time to announce what DDY has in store for the summer! More work for begna.

Yes, you heard me right! Today I, Sereft, designated courier, laziness enabler-chan, and slave #28, bring not one, not two, but THREE announcements for you all!

About Delays

Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know why we’ve been delayed this week on Flag, Black Bullet and No Game No Life. As I’m sure many of you are fully aware (pulling out your hair yet?), it’s final exams season for most universities at the moment. Most of our staff is pretty bogged down with studying and term projects.

However, our amazing staff has still been managing to get everything done in a somewhat timely manner… except me. I am the bottleneck for all three releases this week as I have been frantically finishing a term programming project, studying and interviewing for summer internships. (Wish me luck!)

That’s not an excuse but I didn’t want anyone to worry that we’re dropping out for the season. So, anyway, I can’t promise that next week will be particularly speedy releases for the same reasons but I can promise you that those three as well as Soul Eater Not! and the ATX airing of Brynhildr (if it is uncensored) will be released promptly tomorrow.

Thank you for your patience!

Soul Eater Not! 01

A bonus show for everyone! A three way joint between Slowsubs, Toki-Doki, and DameDesuYo. We will be kind of slow subbing this as we intend to wait for the BS Japan airing on Fridays.
In a joint with Toki-Doki and SlowSubs released under the tag [S-T-D]. Visit Toki-Doki HERE.

Staff after the break.

No Game No Life 01

Our final pick of the season! A Joint with Chihiro on No Game No Life. We were a bit behind this week but, don’t worry, we’ll be faster next week!

Staff after the break.
Continue reading No Game No Life 01

Black Bullet 01

The announcements just keep coming! and there’s still more to come! An original translation of Black Bullet for our fourth pick of the season!

It’s come to my attention that for some users with another version of the dialogue font installed may see the wrong font. Patch HERE.

Staff after the break.

Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara 01

Show three of the season! More coming soon!

Staff after the break.

Captain Earth 01

So here’s our first confirmed pick of the new season: Captain Earth! It’s by far one of the better looking shows this season. This is a joint with our friends at Toki-Doki. We were going to go with the name “D-DameDesuYo” for the tsundere factor, but thought Toki-DesuYo would be better. “It’s not like we care or anything… Y-You baka!”
