Sakura Trick manga volumes 4-5 batches are OUT!!!

Time to sort out our stuff… for once!

Before you go WAT on me, yes, volumes 1-3 are missing because they are incompletely translated and we skipped a volume because it was already adapted in the anime. Volumes 4-5 are the only volumes (as of now) we completely translated and added them in these neat little batches. If you wish to read the rest chapters and watch the anime, please head on over to our Library.




Update (03/16/15): OVAs, Movies, Manga/Doujinshi, etc.

Aoi_heart

This post will detail (almost) our future projects and address some few issues.

SITE

As you noticed, we added and removed some pages and I hope these changes will make Lazy Lily less messy. We renamed DDL to Library and it will contain download links to our past and current projects. Simply click on the thumbnails and it will take you to the appropriate MEGA links. The Library is still not complete and some thumbnails are not click-able, so please bear with us for a while.

We also added an oddly-named page called Before we commit sudoku… and it is a pretty straight-forward page once you check it out. Lazy Lily is heavily dependent on the group founder SHiN and unless there is someone crazy enough to be my successor, Lazy Lily will cease to exist in the far future. Before that happens, we, or rather, I, SHiN, made a checklist on things we need to do. Once we have accomplished those, I will die happy, and Lazy Lily will pass away knowing that she contributed something to the community. Lazy Lily is seven years old! It is time to think of her future and give a lasting impression! Did that make sense at all?

We will be adding possible two new pages soon and one of them will be dedicated to doujinshi translations, art books, and the like.

OVAS AND MOVIES

Yuru Yuri OVA is still missing DDL links and the reason for that is we are currently patching the 1080p and 720p versions. The 1080p version is missing the font for the intro scene, there is a small typesetting clipping issue, there are some minor typos that need fixing and the script suffers from two types of apostrophes. Once we fixed these issues, we will upload the updated subs for DDL. Current owners of the first versions will get an optional patch file for them to use and avoid re-downloading the same video files. We are pretty busy at the moment and we hope we will provide the fixes soon.

I will say this again — Lazy Lily is currently shifting its focus on OVAs, ONAs, and movies. We are very slow and we cannot compete with CR, so we thought this is a good idea. Our current problem is we have to find a catalog of anime movies and check out which one that are easy to acquire and were ignored by fansub groups.

MANGA AND DOUJINSHI

Nothing new on this department other than we are still looking for additional cleaners, typesetters and a translator for the Sakura Trick manga. Lazy Lily will still continue translating the Aikatsu! doujins and we will acquire more in the future. We aim to be the number one group for Aikatsu! yuri doujinshi translations.

DONATIONS

Lazy Lily is doing this for free, but there will be a time that we may need some support. We have a proxy or a buyfag in Japan and he will be going to an Aikatsu!-only event this August to acquire the Double Bind Trilogy (see Double Bind Dream here), additional yuri doujinshi and art books. We’re currently trying to raise at least 250 USD and part of it will go to his hazard pay and travel expenses. We can afford the money, but it would be nice people chip in and lessen the burden.

CLOSING STATEMENT AND LIST OF 2015 PROJECTS

I guess that is it. If you have any questions, concerns or anything, please leave a comment below. I will try to reply to you as soon as I can. This is going to be a busy year and I hope this very small and unknown group will pull through.

Our current list of projects for 2015:

— Haiyore! Nyaruko-san OVA 3
— Aikatsu! Movie
— Full Moon wo Sagashite
— Yuru Yuri S3
— Every Aikatsu! doujinshi we currently posses (list soon)

— SHiN @ Lazy Lily




You should really watch Full Moon wo Sagashite

Full Moon - Mitsuki

I always treated headphones as disposable products. If a pair sounds okay, comfortable, I can plug on my computer and cheap, I’ll buy it. If either speaker died, I toss it to the trash can and get another cheap one. Not too long ago I bought a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50 monitor headphones and these are currently the most expensive set of cans I have purchased. A friend congratulated me for owning “real” headphones and at first I didn’t know what he meant. But after listening to my favorite songs, the difference is like night and day — Instruments are more defined, I heard sounds that I didn’t notice before, and the songs sound infinitely better. I spent a lot of money, but it was all worth it. One of the best purchases I made.

Why am I talking about the M50s? I have yet to use it to listen to the full version of a song. A song that is found in Full Moon wo Sagashite. A song that I consider the most beautiful song I have ever heard. I burst into tears just by listening to the short version of the song and I refuse to listen to the full version until Lazy Lily managed to fansub all 50 episodes. If you listen to the song now, it may not give the same impact because the song shines when you hear it in one of the most emotional scene in the anime. I will not tell you what the song is, but you’ll know the song as soon as you hear it.

Now then…

Someone told me that I’m only watching idol shows like Love Live! and Aikatsu! because it’s the current fad, and I’m just the typical weeb eating up what’s currently popular in Japan. Unfortunately for him, he was wrong. My second most favorite anime of all time is an idol show, and I watched Full Moon wo Sagashite for more than a decade now.

What is this Full Moon? What made it so special for me?

Full Moon wo Sagashite or Searching for the Full Moon is a story of a 12 year old girl named Kouya Mitsuki who dreams in becoming a singer. Unfortunately for Mitsuki, she is suffering from a throat cancer in her throat. The doctors gave her two options: remove the tumor through surgery to save her life, but at the cost of losing her voice or ignore the tumor, keep her voice and let the tumor eat her life away. Refusing to lose her voice, two soul reapers or the shinigami appeared to take her life. Takuto, one of the shinigami, took pity of Mitsuki and gave her some of his shinigami powers to temporarily transform her sickly 12 year old body into a healthy teenage body. Mitsuki then uses this new form to enter an audition that she eventually got accepted. Mitsuki’s journey begins.

At first glace Full Moon is a low budget kids show with talking animals and cute character designs, but the main story is deceptively mature. The first half of the show is mainly about Mitsuki doing her idol activities and contain some quirky episodes like the shinigami can’t enter Mitsuki’s home because the house maid unwittingly placed an enchanted rock that stops spirits from entering. The bulk of the main story starts at the second half and that’s where Full Moon turns from a quirky kids show into a mature, emotional roller coaster ride. I was crying like a little girl and the last episode was so good, it left me speechless. I fucking love Full Moon.

Now Full Moon isn’t perfect. If you compare this show to other idol shows like Aikatsu!, Full Moon is produced with a low budget, no CG dance scenes, acting is iffy sometimes, the art and animation tend to be poor in quality, and the song selections are few. But… Who cares? Full Moon excels in the story, characters, and how deceptively mature it is. The songs are few, yes, but these are very high quality songs sung by someone with an actual human voice. Tired of chipmunks singing your animu songs? You’ll fit right in.

Full Moon wo Sagashite is, again, one of the best anime I have ever seen and I want you guys to experience this great anime.

I hope this little write-up convinced you to try out Full Moon and follow Lazy Lily as we fansub one of the most beautiful anime ever.

You can also check out our old SHiN-gx release of episode one just to get you the idea on what Full Moon is like.

A new Sakura Trick chapter is coming, but for now…

 

Inside4

…get hyped! Or something like that.

More or less we sorted out everything and we’re currently in the process of preparing chapter 3—volume 04, chapter 04 for release. Expect the chapter soon. For now, please enjoy these extra pages from volume 02, chapter 01!

We made this post just to give you some reassurance that we are not dropping the manga and hopefully, HOPEFULLY release the chapters at a reasonable pace. What? Still not convinced we’re still devoted to the project? I can understand that, so we will provide you a quick look at our translated script for volume 04, chapter 04. Enjoy!

So… yeah, please spread the word and stop people from committing sudoku.

Sakura Trick Volume 4 – Chapter 02 is OUT!!!

ST_30_teaser

Uh… hi!

Sorry to have kept you waiting! Here is the 2nd chapter of volume 04 and it’s dedicated to Shizuku and Kotone with a bit of Yuzu.

After this we’re going back to volume 01 and work on the chapters we skipped. This may not be favorable to some, but this is one way of us showing that we didn’t neglect the previous chapters. Oh and we’re still doing the Blu-ray rips. They’ll come…! Soon!

Have fun!

Hanayamata Episode 03 is OUT!!!

Hanayamata_03I think you can probably tell who is my (SHiN) favorite Hanyamata girl. Again: GLORIOUS.

As you may have noticed, we’re a few episodes behind and we doubt that’s going to improve. Taking breaks every other season has made us a bit more lazy and quite frankly fansubbing is taking its toll. Again. Lazy Lily is currently being manned by four people and one of them is our Sakura Trick manga cleaner. Hanayamata will most likely be our last TV series to fansub for 2014 and we will try to focus on doing our old stuff next year.

There is a bit of good news though: We cannot compete against other groups in terms of speed (translation quality-wise we’re better. :3 ), so we decided to dedicate 2014 and beyond to fansubbing OVAs and possibly anime movies. We, in our opinion, pretty much produced the best fansubs for, just to name a few, Valkyria Chronicles OVA, Kuttsukiboshi, Sono Hanabira, Kaibutsu Oujo OVA, and Haiyore Nyaruko OVAs 1-2, so we think it’s best for us to follow this route. We’re slow, we can’t find dedicated cappers, and there are lots of competition from other groups… So yeah.

*ahem*

Yaya a best!

Hanayamata – 03 [720p]

TRANSLATOR NOTES:

00:13:15 — “Yamato Nadeshiko” is a Japanese phrase which is used to describe a woman who displays epitomical traits of Japanese beauty and grace (such as the wearing of a kimono, refined posture, etc). “Yamato” is an archaic name for “Japan”, and “nadeshiko” denotes a type of pink carnation flower. As a fun fact: a popular unofficial name for the Japanese National Women’s Football Team is “Nadeshiko Japan”.

00:18:43 — “Inari-zushi” is a type of sushi wrapped in fried tofu.

STILL RECRUITING:

We’re still looking for a dedicated capper for Hanayamata. Currently Lazy Lily is using raws by Zero-Raws.

Hanayamata Episode 02 is OUT!!!

Hanayamata_02Guess who’s getting the most votes right now. And if you fail to notice something then your goggles needs adjusting! Remember what we said we’ll be seconds faster? I actually typed that wrong. It was meant to say “We’ll be a week slower!” So yeah.

Fact: The only good tsundere characters are the ones with 30% tsun-tsun and 70% dere-dere. Yaya happens to be one and she is GLORIOUS!

Special thanks to Govna of Oshiire Subs for helping us typeset episode 02. Our TS’er Caly is currently unavailable because she was abducted by those darn Martians. I gotta tell you, Naru was one of the lucky ones.

TRANSLATOR NOTES:

00:10:12 — The joke here is that she wrote “yaya” (ヤヤ) in a messy way, which looked like “kaka” (カカ)

00:11:07Anmitsu is a traditional type of Japanese dessert consisting of red bean paste and fruit covered with a syrup.

00:22:09 — She’s using the “dere” from “shinderera” (Cinderella), as a pun.

ST_29_teaserIndeed.

We really, truly, indeed-ly sorry for the extreme lateness and we hope (AGAIN) to pick up the pace.

The pages you are seeing now are scanned from our own copy. Yes, indeed.

ABOUT HANAYAMATA:

What about Hanayamata, you may ask? We are still doing it, but from what I can tell, we are lacking the drive to fansub it. Is Hanayamata a bad show for us? Absolutely not. If you want to know why we’re in the state of, uh, apathy, go ask Uichan. He rarely post, but I reckon he reads reads your comments. I, SHiN, am all excited for Hanayamata, but without anything from Uichan, I’ll end up posting Aoi pictures in /a/ every day. That is not very productive, I tell you.

Sakura Trick episode 12 + Vol4 Bonus Pages are OUT!!!

ST_12Here it is, folks! We finally did it! We finally finished the Sakura Trick anime!

Sakura Trick was one hell of a ride. I mean, they kiss every few minutes! Admittedly there are some cheesy moments and a few disappointments like few Yuzu x Kaede moments, there is nothing beyond the kissing and cuddling, and no major (good) drama like, say, a proper love triangle situation. Oh and where the hell is that Ball Sports Meet?

Overall though, it’s a good yuri slice-of-life show with genuinely good funny bits. For first time yuri viewers: Is this the best yuri anime to start with? Yes and No. Yes because it’s a light-hearted show with no big melodrama and sex. No because it has no melodrama, sex and depth. But if you really want a definite answer, we can’t give you one. What we can do, however, is suggest you check out this newcomer’s guide to yuri.

Other than that, enjoy our version for the final epis— Hmm? What’s that? You’re wondering what’s up with that ZIP file bundled with episode 12? The ZIP file contains two panels from Sakura Trick volume 4. While you wait for us to release the actual chapters, please enjoy these teaser panels! For now!

Have fun!
