I wanted a better release picture but there weren’t any good shots as far as I know.
Release being later than what I would like because we ran into problems and people went missing. Nothing much to say asides from the anime being a bit underwhelming… I expected a bit more because I read the LNs. But hey, what can you expect from anime adaptations?
I’ve changed how these specials are named and a couple small changes in episode 00 has been made.
XDCC: !tigre00 [edit: this trigger wasn't working earlier, fixed now]
More Vanadis. Web special when the typesetter gets back.
Episode 02 of the main series will come later. For the time being, have a web special.
Nothing to see here.
It’s the recap. Skip over this Same As Original stuff unless you’re just that hype for it or something. I don’t think they animated anything new this ep. It just plays back old scenes with some 30-odd new lines from Sinon as a narrator reflecting on stuff.
We ran with a skeleton crew this week, where I did almost all the wrangling around with the script, finding the lines from the previous episodes. Yes, I know what I put in the OP and ED this time kind of look like crap this episode. If you bother watching this, you’ll see what I’m talking about.
Vanadis is coming along, as are the short web specials, and they should be coming in the kind of nearish-but-not-imminent future.
twinkle: We’re a bit late this week because we got started a bit late, but also we were considering legit typesetting this one sign in the middle of the episode that’s… well, apparently it was more work than anticipated. Then when we checked our group name, it turned out that we weren’t Irrational Typesetting Wizardry, so we ended up bailing and going with plan B. It may be redone for batch.
Anyway, enjoy your dose of Stellar Armament Operation.
The Madan no Ou to Vanadis specials uploaded on YouTube by mediafactory is a thing. Work has started on it and we will release it when it’s done.
Here is our new pick of the season. So far it doesn’t look like MBS has censored anything so we’ll probably stick with them as our source. We’ll let you know if something happens. (edit: for clarification, if AT-X is less censored in the future we’ll probably switch as necessary)
The site was down for a short period of time and we’re sorry for the inconvenience. Fibi seem to have forgotten to pay the bills but that has been taken care of.
On another note, SAO should be released around the usual time. edit: It’s running late now.
Kind of hard to pick a screenshot that’s not spoiling, so here’s some second-best girl. Hm, I wonder if Kirito’s Smelly As Otaku after all that sweating and exertion. Yes, while lying comatose in bed. You know.
By the way, there was some screwup and also some miscommunication about XeXeeD’s name in prior episodes. In some previous episodes, including the first one, we used Zexceed. It’ll be all changed to XeXeeD for batch according to Master Rekyu’s wishes. Sorry. Also, this ep Hyaku fixed the studio’s bad Engrish spelling on one sign.
I’d say we’re still looking for staff, though we’ve been thankfully adding somewhat to our ranks in the last few weeks. See Hyaku’s last post for more details.
Here is Stupid Assaults Overachieve (courtesy of twinkle-) and an obligatory shot of Asuna. No blue hair because it looks yuck on her.
We are still looking for staff. Translators, Editors and encoders please contact me on IRC or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is what everyone has been waiting for; a good serving of ass.

twinkle edit: There were character encoding (locale, something like that) issues with the v1, causing the dashes to not display correctly. Also, one of the chapters was misnamed. This v2 just fixes those minor cosmetic issues, so don’t bother with the v2 if you don’t mind them. Thanks to people who caught this early and notified us. I don’t think many people had gotten the v1 yet, or I wouldn’t have bothered. Here is the patch and here is the updated script, if you just want that.
