November 17, 2019: We are understaffed. I don’t think there are many people reading this page, but anyway, if you are a fan of at least one of the three anime we’re subbing (Goldfish Warning! / Hime-chan’s Ribbon / Fushigiboshi no Futagohime Gyu!), and if you think you can edit (or quality-check), please join us (even if temporarily)! You don’t need much free time (because we are slow). You can quit any time you like.

An editor is a person who edits drafts (translated from Japanese) so that the scripts will become better (more natural) as English. One episode has like 300 lines (Example), of which maybe 200–250 lines are already good when you get a draft. The job is purely text editing. You don’t have to translate, time, or typeset anything. Basically, anyone can do this as long as they speak English fluently and are a decent writer.

A quality-checker is a person who watches a test-encoded video and spots possible problems (such as typos, bad grammar, awkward expressions). Anyone can do this as long as they can read English subtitles.

If you think you might be able to help us, please PLEASE do feel free to contact us (honobono.fansubs@gmail.com). In the past we introduced hidden gems like The Star of Cottonland or Minky Momo - The Bridge over Dreams and several other series (perhaps about 200 episodes in total), but now, many of the old members are gone. Our ex-chief editor left the team after she had finished the first season of FH, so our editinig department is now not very powerful. Not only that, the translator who wanted to do the second season had gone MIA. Ouch. One of our three encoders is now inactive; our encoding power has diminished since we released HCR40. The remaining members are also more or less busy with real life and other things. That is why we’re understaffed.

October 7, 2019: Although Gyu07 is practically ready to release, we will probably release Gyu06v2 first (before Gyu07); perhaps a double release of 6v2 + 7. The “potentially bigger problem” (see below) turned out to be a really important issue, not only related to some of our files, but related to media players/tools in general, and for example MPC-BE, MPC-HC, LAV Filters are to be updated (fixed) soon based on our discovery. While we are sorry about the delay, many programs are affected by the issue we noticed, and thus in a way, we are indirectly helping many subbers and anime fans, not just lazily delaying the release.

October 3, 2019: The current queue status. (1) Gyu07 = ready to release (Gyu06v2 TBD); to be released soon (possibly today or tomorrow). (2) GfW48 = encoded; waiting for QC; once QCed, the rest should be fast. (3) Gyu08 = encoded; to be QCed. (4) HCR42 = edited 75%; still to be edited, timed, typeset, and encoded. (5) Gyu09 = translated 20%. (6) GfW49 = to be translated. (7) HCR43 = to be prepared for editing.

September 29, 2019: Gyu07 was re-encoded yesterday to fix some minor problems, but then we have noticed a potentially bigger problem. We might even have to do v2 for Gyu06… (though Gyu05 was ok)

June 24, 2019 (18:54 UTC): We have released Hime-chan’s Ribbon 41. The bridge depicted in this episode may be based on a real place (see a separate page for more info).

May 4, 2019 (20:20 UTC): We have released Goldfish Warning! 47. This episode has a few interesting aspects. You can read Translator’s Notes after you watch it!

February 16, 2019: We have released Fushigiboshi no ☆ Futagohime Gyu! 06.

Little Lovers

Little Lovers is a slice-of-life episode. One of its main topics is a realistic problem for little children, but is rarely depicted in anime shows, perhaps because it’s not very exciting nor fantastic (and so not marketable). When the seiyū for Yumeko voices Fake Yumeko (who is actually Himeko), the way she speaks is subtly different (Himeko-ish) — nicely nuanced! Also interestingly, Shintaro and Ichiko (“Icchan”) are voiced by the same person.
