[News] Aikatsu!-only Event #14 this November 12th

You gotta admire the Aikatsu! fans in Japan. I mean, they hold multiple events for Aikatsu! and it’s often surprising the anime isn’t getting the same amount of fans in the West. But, eh, who am I to say that?

Yes, you guessed it, it’s that kind of post again!

Event 14 is coming this November 12, and we may see some new stuff worth getting and worth translating (eventually). If you wanna check out the upcoming doujins, you can check my retweets over at Twitter. Or check out #art-katsu in our Discord server.

The one I RT’d are the books I want to get and it’d be great if you help me raise money. Just click on the Donate button on the right.

[News] A few more Aikatsu! doujins have arrived!

We got new books! These are not recent purchases, so it’s from the previous doujin request a few months ago. This time around we picked up more Aikatsu Stars! books and the MVP doujin is clearly Little Heart Rifle. Our Stars lineup is still very small, but we’re getting there. For the OG Aikatsu!, we got the 3rd book of nae’s Secret x Secret series.

If you’re wondering why there are so little books this time, that’s because we found nothing else in second hand bookstores and I’m not sure about the quality of the rest. We’re not gonna pick up non-yuri books to fill any void. If you want hetero stories, there are many groups that are happy to translate them. So yeah, more books that you will never read in their translated form. I’m not saying I’m not gonna share these books, it’s just we don’t have the means to translate them properly.

Do you want to make Lazy Lily motivated, acquire more books and keep us running in the foreseeable future? And have access to the 6000px version of this book? Consider donating. Maybe we can ask a couple of talented people for a fee, if you do.

[News] We’re operational again!

Yay, we’re back and we can finally resume our Halloween special! Oh god, I hope we can make it.

Though the unfortunate thing is no one really donated, so I just borrowed money from people. You know, the usual. And this made me realized that we’ve reached a certain threshold at what we can currently do.

Let’s just hope someone else has scanned this image and had it posted for everyone to see.

[News] Site Update 10/11/17

There’s nothing great to talk about other than more bad news. Oh well.

Sakura Trick

There will be no new chapters this month and there’s a big chance we won’t be doing any chapters in November and December because, yeah, you guessed it, we don’t have a translator. So much for our plan to finish volume 6 by the end of the year.

Aikatsu! Doujinshi

We got new doujinshi and it’ll arrive in 8/u/ Board Owner’s home in a few weeks. Why? Because he’s paying for the shipping and I’m very poor. We’ll post pictures soon.

Aikatsu! Doujinshi Translation

We’re currently working on a big doujin for Halloween, but it pains me to say it’ll be the last doujin that is getting translated this year.

Others

No new updates in the website other than I updated the pastebin *ahem*wish list*ahem* link found in the Staff page. Christmas is a couple of months away, so I gotta follow tradition and ask Saint Nick for something. I think I was good girl this year. ;_;

Closing Words

Life sucks, yeah. We were primed to release chapters and doujins like “Fuck yeah! 2017 is in the bag!”, but ended up getting disappointed when the TL decided to call it quits and went to Japan for work. Lazy Lily Fansubs survived everything and we will recover, though I’m not sure when will that happen. I’m not giving up in providing Aikatsu! doujinshi, but for now… Luck is currently not on our side.

Move to higher resolutions?

It wouldn’t be long for everyone on this spinning round planet to adapt UHD, so this got me thinking: “We scan our own doujins, and we have full control over the final output, so why not provide higher resolution doujins?”



How to enjoy anime the right way

It’s understandable for a timid and new anime fan to be completely unaware of what bittorrent is and what fansubs are… in 2007. In the year 2017, things like those should be common knowledge by now. I guess people still think YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and MAL are the only things to be found on the internet, and thinks streaming sites like KissAnime or GoGoAnime translates their anime. Which is kind of sad because fansubbers contributed to anime going mainstream and popular in the West. And before I end up ranting about fansubbing dying, I’m going to teach you some basics on how to improve your anime experience.



[News] Site Update 08/25/17

This is just a minor update post because silly things happened and I want everyone to know what’s going on.



[News] Aikatsu! stuff in C92 Natsu Komi

[Help!] How to find these elusive translators?

The “no-TL drought” has plagued this group for years now and I just hope we’ll get one after this summer heat is over. But I won’t ignore the fact Aikatsu! is very niche compared to her popular sisters like Idolmaster, PreCure and Normi—Love Live, and it also attributed to this drought we’re experiencing. Sucks Aikatsu! isn’t popular outside Japan.

And this begs the question: How do I get someone to join this small group and stay with us for at least a year? I’ve tried any option I could think of and they didn’t work. Am I going to end up hiring translators to do the stuff I want? If that’s the case, I think I’m willing to negotiate a deal to any translator interested.

Though, I’d rather prefer a translator who translates for fun, instead of translating for money. And besides, the donations Lazy Lily gets will go the books, CDs, and sometimes fees for other things. Additionally, I’m working as a part time writer to get some extra dosh, so maybe I can afford compensating some… Though I’m saving some of it for my Japan trip next February and personally enter an Aikatsu!-only Event to buy some rare book some rare books.

TL;DR

Please help translate for Lazy Lily Fansubs. Email: here.

[News] In light of the shenanigans at Dynasty Scans

According to recent statistics coming out of my ass that is scientifically approved and FDA approved, 99% of our doujin and manga followers read our stuff by downloading them directly from this website. So chances of them caring what’s going on with Lazy Lily and Dynasty Scans is close to nil, but to the rest who do read our stuff from online readers like Dynasty Scans, there is some unfortunately bad news. Due to a recent confrontation with the moderation team of Dynasty Scans, Lazy Lily Fansubs is pulling her translations out in protest.

As of this writing, our Aikatsu-related translations and Sakura Trick translations are still in Dynasty Scans, but the Dynasty team is committed on removing them as soon as humanly possible.

So what happened?
