We’re not dead. Just taking a season off.

I didn’t realize this post would be something I needed to prioritize, but our comment section makes it clear I should have. So here we go.

Life for some of us at DDY has been hectic and rapidly changing the past few months. People have been moving, traveling for work and vacation, getting new jobs, studying for final exams, and all kinds of other things.

With that in mind along with a pretty lackluster choice of shows in the summer season and the death of nyaa, I made the executive decision we would hold off on new projects until people have settled a bit and we have projects we’d actually like to work on.

Hopefully we’ll catch up on shows that are stalled too. I’m certainly pushing for that.

In the meantime, try to calm down; we’re not dead, just taking some time off from our hobby to handle real life.

I’ll try to answer questions in the comments as I find time. Otherwise, you can hop on our Discord server where I am much, much more available any time.

PS. Anime Expo was great.

  • Ah well finish backlog first then pick something up next season. Maybe drop BDs for the Trinity Seven movie?

  • VoHiYo

    First xD

  • Anon

    Not being dead is one of the symptoms of impending death.

  • Bazma

    Do you know what will happen with Alice to Zouroku? Since GJM had their leader quit and all.

  • hanagi

    That’s how fansubbing groups die. By taking a season off

    • We’ve taken a season off before and come back just fine. Twice in fact.

      • anonymouse

        And every time you come back a little deader than before. Still praying for some stuff from the backlog.

  • Crizal

    The post we’ve all been waiting for. Good to know you guys haven’t hung the gloves up.

  • Kyouma

    Will you guys still consider to do BDs for Maid Dragon?

  • Arcc

    Hope you come back when there’s something good on TV. You’ve won me over as a group worth waiting for.

  • Are you gonna do SnK S2 BDs?

    Also, is begna best grill this season too?

  • Ryou96

    And here i was hoping for re zero bd… Plss male it fast.. Joke… Take ur time mate hahaha

  • Delta

    see summer there chillin wheres my sunglasses

  • Funny_Valentine

    Glad to hear you guys are still alive one of the better groups out there. Hope everything works out for you guys and your real life issues.

  • URGH


  • Hikari

    Make DDY great again!

  • Hikari

    Oh and you should post on nyaa.si guys!

    • name

      begna112 has said that he “will never upload to a site that doesn’t have an A+ rating for best releases” according to him letting people make their own choices is “scamming the users”
      but then again herkz has been sucking up to nyaa.si admins 24/7 for few months now so he might just get A+ there

      • wtf are you even talking about…. I’ve said no such thing. I have said I would like the sites to provide a secure API for uploading so I can easily automate our releases.

      • Anon

        you’re fucking retarded lol

      • name

        You said that on #anidex @ Rizon a few days after nyaa went down
        Surely you must remember since you were arguing with several users there for hours
        If I knew you would go back on your word that fast I would have saved the logs

        • Anon

          pantsufags pls go write fanfiction somewhere else

  • Lel

    Thank goodness you’re not dead yet.
    Take your time. I’ll be hovering around HS and A7 for this season Anime after all.

    And oh, I know this is still far, but will you pick up Mahoutsukai no Yome next Season? Assuming you’ve done settling down :v

    • No idea for next season. what is A7?

      • Lel

        Anime7. A website to host subbed Anime. I don’t know the details tho. just recently found it.

  • SONNYxq

    Great to hear :D

  • Nyann

    DDY is Love.

  • aaAAaaAA

    Is finishing Love Lab really just a meme similar to Derp Sub’s LOL Heros? I’m a little out of the loop. Thanks!

  • Azraei Halim

    Majimoji Rurumo status show Vol. 1-6 @ Release (begna112) but it still not release even already few months that status was like that. When it will be truly release.

  • SemiBitter

    Do you need help with anything besides TL?

  • Rlex

    Any updates/timeframe on wrapping up the Blurays of NGNL, Re:Zero, or Koukaku no Pandora? Apart from those three just waiting on your TV releases of Sword Oratoria and Eromanga-sensei.

  • MyHatsOffToYou

    I never asked “Where is…?”

    I was always patient like a good kid.

    But you really should have made this post a priority.

    All this time I thought DDY is dead.

    Anime is dead without begna

    begna best girl!

  • Hey, if y’all need help finishing up some stalled shows, I can’t commit to being around all the time but sometimes I have a little free time to kill. Find me on IRC or drop me an e-mail. Really hoping you guys finish Dragon Maid soon. T~T And yeah, I’d take the summer off too, Japan really dropped the ball on quality anime this season.

  • Cezar


  • Just another way of saying “temporarily dead”.

  • I appreciate the acknowledgment of the need to step back and take a breather.

    Would anyone in charge be so kind as to let us know the possible future status of:

    Sword Oratoria

    Alice to Zouroku

    Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon

  • Giorgi

    Been waiting for Re:Zero batch for ages, hope it will be here soon

  • Animeguy

    Glad to know you’re still alive, but at the least very least can you fix the xdcc packlist on the site? It’s been down for quite a while. Thanks

  • YetAnotherAnon

    What’s stalling Utawarerumone at the moment?

  • Evil Loli Is Best Girl

    Do you have any plans to do BD subs of Youjo Senki at some point? Evil Loli needs some love, too.

    • Lann094

      I may or may not have done an edit of vol 1 for a certain BD group, and it may or may not be coming out very soon.
      (I hope you don’t mind my sniping here, begna~)
