No, I’m not dead (yet).
Basically, I just wanted to let you all know that I do intend to finish off this season’s reviews. The reason why I haven’t been posting very much recently is because my job is extremely time-consuming. More than any job should be. However, I can still finish off this season’s reviews.
So let’s just break this down.
Groups I need to review:
Bakuman S2: SFW-sage, TMD_A-Destiny
Ben-to: Shikkaku, EveTaku
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai: Doki
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai OVA: Complete!
Busou Shinki: Complete!
C3: Cubed x Cursed x Curious: Gimme, UTW
Chibi Devi: Complete!
Chihayafuru: Commie, NyanTaku
Digimon Xross Wars II: WildBunch, OD ((This anime = lowest fucking priority))
Guilty Crown: Commie
Gundam AGE: Sage
HunterXHunter: SG, SD&Taka
Kimi to Boku: Sage, CTSS
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon: Hatena
Last Exile S2: N/A. Whine is doing this in a joint with SFW, so there’d be a serious conflict of interest here.
Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai: Hiryuu
Maken-ki: Hiryuu, Hatsuyuki
Mashiro-Iro Symphony: Doki-Chihiro, Zenyaku-ACIFT
Mirai Nikki: SS, GotWoot, IB
Morita-san wa Mukuchi II: Shin-gx, Ruri
Persona 4: Ruri, Commie, Hatsuyuki-CTSS
Phi-Brain – Kami no Puzzle: Complete!
Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi S2: Sekai, Sage
Shakugan no Shana S3: Complete!
Shinryaku! Ika Musume: Underwater, AQUA, WhyNot, FFFpeeps
Tamayura ~hitotose~: Oyatsu, Nishi-taku
Un-Go: Commie, Doki
Note that if your group is “Liquid Subs”, “SubDesu”, or “Hadena”, you don’t so much count as a fansub as “shit transmitted electronically”. So I’m going to exercise my best judgment and put a hold on any future reviews for these groups until actual fansub groups get a fair shake at getting reviewed. Also, if your group is horribly delayed, no review. Try harder to not be so shit.
For the order of reviews… I am going to prioritize shows which only need one more group to be “completely reviewed” first. After this, I’m going to look at shows which have only 13 episodes this season. Then, it’s by whatever the hell I consider “quality” shows to be.
Sorry for being so bad with getting reviews out on-time. Due to my job, I don’t have a choice in that matter, but things should ease up in the future. Also… Thanksgiving = reviewing. Black Friday = Amazon + reviewing. Thanksgiving weekend = reviewing. Let’s see how much that knocks out. Do expect some delays, because I try to review the more recent releases by groups. This means I’m going to need to catch up on a lot of this season, as well as some much needed sleep…
The review queue is gone temporarily while I work out some kinks with it (read: I didn’t do much with it, so I’m putting it on hiatus for now).
The Review Summary page has also been updated for this season. Recommended groups, lists of groups that need reviews, and group status changes (such as dropping shows) are now (for the most part) properly reflected on the summary page.
To be released tomorrow: Last Exile, sugoi secret OVA, Dantalian batch (Edit: This didn’t happen. I’m working on Valve time.)
