Release ...

June 24, 2020: (1) GfW50 RC6 was encoded on June 6, but it’s not ready: there was one minor edit on June 9, and after final-checking the editor made 5 more changes on June 16; then one very minor change was made on June 18; finally two more lines were questioned on June 18 — still TBD [PS: on June 26, these two lines were judged as okay as-is after all]. We are getting a little too paranoid! (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 (RC6 prepared on June 6 is almost-final but not quite). After final-checking, there is at least one line we want to change (though it’s rather minor), and we need some more time (at least a few days, perhaps one or two weeks), as the editor wants to double-check everything. Meanwhile, we can work on other episodes. (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.

June 2, 2020: About 20 minor script changes were made today, and we are ready to finalize GfW50. GfW50 (RC5) was test-encoded on May 30. So far GfW50 is looking almost ready to release, except there are one or two unimportant problems. The potentially bad news is that our internal SFTP server is down (not this server where our website is hosted), meaning now we can’t easily share files among ourselves. Obviously this is inconvenient. But probably we can somehow release GfW50 anyway. The current ETA is 4–10 days. [PS: The server is up again.]

May 27, 2020: The next release is probably GfW50 (RC5): now RC4 is being checked and a few minor revisions are planned. GfW51 is also 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: GfW50 RC4 was encoded yesterday. This one is near-final, if not the final, and the release ETA of GfW50 is within 10–14 days (perhaps the next weekend or the weekend after that), after final-checking and, if needed, final-tweaking. 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. GfW50 RC3 was already QCed and the script is to be updated.

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

Currently, the general situation is like this: Goldfish Warning! is being actively translated, typeset, encoded, QCed, and edited. However, one of the regular QCers is very busy, and as such, if we have to wait for his approval, things could be delayed indefinitely. That’s one of the main reasons why GfW49 was delayed. Also, that’s why GfW50 is being delayed even though it’s already RC3; and that’s why we can’t create Gyu08 RC3. [PS: Gyu08rc3 was finally approved around May 17, 2020, now ready to encode.]

March 11, 2020: Gyu08 (RC3) is almost ready to encode. We can release it when encoded, unless problems are found in final-checking.

March 2, 2020: HCR is currently being stalled (the editor is not around, perhaps too busy with IRL). If you like HCR and can edit it, please contact us.

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.”

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)

June 24, 2019 — OUT: Hime-chan’s Ribbon 41

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.
