We’re not asking for any specific amount, but we do have some stretch goals. Just remember: if you don’t give us your money, you’re not a true fan.

Edit: Donation drive has now ended. We managed to raise $83,512.88 in less than a day. This will be enough to sustain operations for the month. Thanks for being such great anime fans. :)


We all know that fansubbers make anime. And because Whine-Subs may be the only fansub group you’ve ever heard of, I feel confident in telling you that Whine-Subs is the only fansub group that exists out there. Hell, without us, Japan probably wouldn’t even exist. That’s how much we matter.

*We* made this, so give us your money

*We* made this, so give us your money

And that’s where you come in. For the low, low price of whatever you can afford, Whine-Subs will continue to exist. Don’t listen to the people who actually know us: e-penis is not our primary motivator. We’re just fans… who want your money. Think of it as fan->fan sharing. And without your money, we totally are gonna have to permanently shut operations down.

We're super cereal about this you guys

An Honest Breakdown of Our Financials

Getting anime to you is expensive. Trust us, we’d reduce costs if we could, but it is physically impossible.

We're totally being upfront and honest about this

No worries, we’re being completely upfront and honest about this

Seeding torrents costs literal pennies of bandwidth for us. I mean, we don’t have bandwidth caps… but like, spread out across the entire month, those pennies add up.

And encoding on our home PCs costs… electricity! And time! Our time is very valuable!!

So… that’s a lot of money right there.


Additional Costs

But the money we so desperately need doesn’t stop at electricity and bandwidth. Cuz if you think about it, it takes a whole lot more money for us to actually provide you with these animes. Food, lodging, and prostitutes ain’t free, you know. And if those aren’t paid for by you, we can’t provide you with anime.

Remember, we’re providing a free service, so you owe us money. That’s how it works and always has in this fandom. Don’t question, just pay.

Thanks for reading. And remember, the donation button is all the way to le right. ^_^

Um, so yeah. What exactly is the reason for this donation drive?

The removal of hiatus on Whine-Subs this summer? :D

kokujin-kun says:

2ColouredEyes says:

Afterall, it’s UTW. Well loved (I like the group too).

Made me think. What if GG fans will not troll for donations? God forbid.

Iron says:

I’m guessing this has something to do with the fact that a certain fansub just received a pretty big amount of money on donations (?)…

afafafaf says:

What picture is that last one?

Dark_Sage says:

I have no idea.

Solaristics says:

After I saw UTW’s donations of almost 4,000 I can’t say I didn’t see this coming :D.

Name goes here says:

“sugar oto-sans”

I donated just because of that joke.

sage says:

Well golly gee, I wonder what this could possibly be referring to, and passive-aggressively complaining about?

Dark_Sage says:

I don’t think anyone knows but you. You’re the chosen one, congrats.

TouToTheHouYo says:

I already pay you people with my silent attention. You ain’t gettin’ my money!

Dark_Sage says:

Oh wow, $13,000 donated now? That’s cool, but I just bought another motorcycle, so we’re gonna need to find ways to pay for that together.

Aw, I know I can count on you. Thanks, you’re the bestest.

Humanity says:

Impossible. There’s no Flattr button! Who bothers with paypal anymore? Flattr is what all the cool kids use now.

Dark_Sage says:

bitcoins only plz

Dirq says:

Just donated 21,000 đồng ;)

Hope you enjoy your new motorcycle.

Dark_Sage says:

Oh you~

B-But I am a true Dark_Sage fan :(

Dark_Sage says:

Then you gotta pay.

Qrius says:

Envious_Sage strikes again – or is it just good ol’ Bitter_Sage?

Fred C Dobbs says:

So, you go on hiatus – and then demand to be paid.

So like Congress, then?

Fred C Dobbs says:

Missed this initially:

“Ooooooo – Fansub costs a Buck-O-Fiiiiiiiive!”

Team America best movie of all time

Fred C Dobbs says:

Fuck Yeah!!!!!

BTc says:

because a certain famous group got almost $4000?

Dark_Sage says:

Scamming money from idiots doesn’t make someone worthy of my envy.

Justinnnnnn says:

This is why I keep coming back to this site.

Ryuk says:

MFW you guys got 12.5k… Wtf. Why do you even need a job.

Dark_Sage says:

We got even more over the night. Well, I think we can shut down the donation drive for now. Don’t want any accusations of impropriety.

Enz says:

I think D_S is trying to make a statement here… mhhh

Fred C Dobbs says:

Yes. And the statement is, “In yer eye!” :oD

sakagamitomoya Fuck xythar hes a gay jewish nazi cuntreamer says:

sent ;)

Ryuk says:

83k… Pls… That’s probably the same as your yearly payment. Just ask for donations every year and don’t have a job. Lol. says:

Now you can afford a super-expensive camera for those anime conventions.

MrSh4dy says:

But what about scanlation groups?
