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?



10 Years of Lazy Lily Fansubs

Art by mykoa

Wew, 10 years! 10 years of fansubbing. 10 years of… basically sitting in front of my computer doing weeb stuff instead of going outside engaging in social rituals like talking to other human beings and “hanging out” with said human beings. …Worth it!

Yes, that’s right, your favorite (also despised) faceless anonymous internet idiot and shitposter SHiN is 10 years in the fansubbing biz. Yay!

Actually, there’s really nothing much else to say, unless you want another long posts like this one. We may not be the most popular or influential fansub group, but we’re proud we were able to provide translations of shows, manga and doujin translations to a lot of anime fans. I’m happy we’re still around translating the stuff we love despite so many hardships. Yeah, there were a lot of ups and downs, I disappointed a lot of people, and staff members leaving me because of my leadership, but we will still press onward and deal with any new problems along the way.

But, if anything, I’d want to open up a bit to other groups for the next 10 years. Who knows, more connections means more people helping me and Lazy Lily Fansubs in the future.

To everyone who supported Lazy Lily: I thank you for all of the things you’ve contributed to the group. And I apologize to everyone who were disappointed in me. Here’s hoping you guys will continue to support me, and Lazy Lily Fansubs in the next 10 years.

We got this, Fam

Pulled a few strings, threatened a lot of people at gunpoint, sipped some tea and confessed to Aoi again. Give us 1-2 days tops to prepare everything.

[News] What’s in the box?

A box of goodies arrived and let’s see what’s inside and woe at the fact these will never be scanned and translated.

Unless of course you’re going to help us in the translation department *wink* *wink*



>tfw fully ripped volume 6

Just ripped and scanned the last chapter of Sakura Trick volume 6. After a couple of weeks of fixing the scans, volume 6, chapter 10 will be ready for typesetting. So…

Any bored translators around? We’re still looking for some for Sakura Trick (and Aikatsu!).
