Release

July 31, 2020: (1) Goldfish Warning! 54 (the last episode) was translated yesterday (Thursday, July 30 UTC; Wednesday evening in USA). So basically, we’re about to complete the GfW project, although we still need significant time measured in months, having four episodes to release (51, 52, 53, 54). After GfW54, we will start subbing Idol Angel Yōkoso Yōko (YY), while continuing Fushigiboshi no ☆ Futagohime Gyu!. You might think we should concentrate on Gyu without starting something new, but our Gyu release is slow largely because our Gyu encoder is currently very busy; also, the current translator for GfW and that for Gyu are different persons. So basically, no matter whether we start a new (post-GfW) project or not, Gyu won’t become faster nor slower. (2) GfW51 has been fully QCed and updated, now near ready (RC3). Only fine-tuning is necessary, and RC4 might be releasable. (3) GfW52, too, has been fully QCed and semi-updated; RC2 will be created soon, perhaps in a week or so. (4) GfW53 RC1: Typeset (softsub) done. Todo: Typeset (hardsub) + Encode, eta 5–7 days. (5) Gyu09 will be typeset after GfW53. Though typesetting won’t take long, the encoder may be very busy.

July 21, 2020: We’re resuming HCR (Hime-chan’s Ribbon). The project had been stalled since around the end of 2019 as the editor was busy. Now another editor (who has some free time in the next few weeks) took it over on July 19, 2020.

July 19, 2020 (22:10 UTC): We have released Fushigiboshi no Futagohime Gyu! 08.

July 17, 2020: The IRC server irc.aniverse.com had been down for 3–4 days, but it’s up again. Meanwhile, Gyu8 (rc3) was finally encoded on July 13. Also, GfW52 (rc1) has been fully QCed.

July 5, 2020 (11:50 UTC): We have released Goldfish Warning! 50.
This episode was actually encoded more than two weeks ago. Final-checking took longer than expected. [More info]

June 24, 2020: (1) GfW50 RC7 was encoded on June 19. (2) GfW51 is essentially ready, yet we can’t really concentrate on it until 50 is released. (3) Gyu8 RC3 is ready to encode, but the encoder is very busy!

June 12, 2020: (1) We are not yet ready to release GfW50. (2) GfW51 is near-final; after deciding on about 5 lines, we can prepare RC3. (3) GfW52 RC1 is currently being QCed. (4) GfW53 is still to be typeset before RC1 is prepared (basically ready except sign subs). (5) GfW54 is the last epsiode; pre-timed on May 29. This is the only GfW episode not yet translated! Hopefully we can complete GfW sometime this year.

May 27, 2020: GfW51 is near ready: we have QCed GfW51 RC2 and made about 60 minor revisions so far, but there are still a few things to be decided. GfW52 RC1 is now being QCed.

May 16, 2020: GfW51 (RC2) has been so far QCed by 2 QCers. GfW52 (RC1) was encoded, to be QCed later. Currently, we’re typesetting GfW53 (RC1). GfW54 (last) — the only one ep not yet translated — should be pre-timed shortly.

May 10, 2020: GfW53 has been translated — the next ep (54) is the last! GfW52 RC1 should be ready in a few days. GfW51 RC2 is soon to be QCed.

May 2, 2020 (19:47 UTC): Finally we have released Goldfish Warning! 49. [More info]

January 13, 2020 (00:23 UTC): We have released Goldfish Warning! 48. [More info]

December 18, 2019: If things go well, we might start new project(s) before long. Currently the #1 candidate is Idol Angel Yōkoso Yōko; #2 is Magical Angel Sweet Mint.

November 24, 2019 (19:49 UTC): We have released Fushigiboshi no ☆ Futagohime Gyu! 07.

November 24, 2019 (19:30 UTC): We have released Fushigiboshi no ☆ Futagohime Gyu! 06v2.

The joke is, Chitose’s mom says she “just got back from Switzerland,” yet for some reason
she brings back “a specialty of Nagoya” as a souvenir — her story doesn’t add up.
Uirō is a sweet cake made of rice flour, indeed a specialty of Nagoya, though fried-shrimp flavored uirō is unrealistic.
As an additional joke, ebifurai (“fried shrimp”) is written as ebifuryā in a (fake) Nagoya accent:
“Japanese comedian Tamori once joked about Nagoya dialect such as ebifuryaa […],”
“but restaurateurs in Nagoya took advantage of the joke and ebifurai became one of Nagoya's specialty foods.”

Chitose suddenly feels guilty.
As twisted as she may be, she’s essentially good-natured. (Click to enlarge)

Aoi keeps Chitose’s secret, remaining silent, but can’t face Shuu straight.
This scene is subtle. Aoi’s complicated expression is shown only momentarily.
Part of him wants to help out “that selfish girl.” Why? He’s not sure himself… (Click to enlarge)

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.
