As with any FAQ… some of these are infrequently asked! Note that some of this is quite old and outdated.
Hiryuu? Never heard of you!
Then how’d you get on the site? We started Oct 2010, and don’t do too many projects at any given time.
I have a video problem or issue with the subtitles displaying properly. What did you guys do wrong?
In the cases it’s not something we screwed up, it’s something on your end. Check if the CRC of the file matches the 8-character CRC in the filename. If it doesn’t, your download is broken, so try grabbing it again.
If you’re on Windows, use the latest version of CCCP. We probably won’t provide support for any other setup. Or you could grab one of CCCP’s alternatives like KCP or otherwise a player that can handle Hi10p video and render subtitles with xy-vsfilter (or XySubFilter, probably, and also probably some recent version of libass), but don’t expect this to necessarily work, even though it usually should. An alternative available on other operating systems and also on Windows that should probably work for the vast majority of cases is mpv. There are many known issues with other playback solutions.
We will not provide compatibility-oriented releases for those using other platforms or ancient computer hardware that cannot handle the above. However, unaffiliated groups may provide such releases using our subtitles, so maybe you could check with them.

Why do you fansub?
What do the IRC and sidebar status indicators mean?
|QC||Quality Control||Soon||Nearly ready, files being prepared and uploaded for distribution.|
What’s a CRC?
In layman’s terms, it’s an identifier for every file created. Think of it like a serial number. It’s the 8 digit hexadecimal number at the end of our filename.
How do I know if I have the right CRC?
Get a program that checks CRC, something like RapidCRC, Hashcheck, or any number of other free utilities.
Will you do a joint with me?
Maybe. Get in touch.
How do I get an avatar on your blog?
Use Gravatar, and input the associated e-mail when leaving a comment.
Why don’t you accept donations?
While ever I can afford the costs myself, I don’t intend to accept donations.
The downloads aren’t working.
Leave a comment in the downloads section.
When will my animu be ready?
Generally, we’ll give you a target release day each week. Sometimes we beat it, if there will be delays, we’ll inform you.
Do you have an IRC channel?
How do I use the XDCC bot?
Use !triggers in channel or use http://xdcc.hiryuufansubs.com
Can I use your script?
How do you propose we stop you? If we intend to do our own BDs, we’d prefer you didn’t… but honestly, we don’t really care, it’d be nice if you left us some credit though.
Will you do this show?
We’ll do what we announce.
Will you do X at this size, aspect ratio… insert other video parameter here?
If we haven’t announced as such, it’s unlikely.
Are you recruiting?
Yes: http://www.hiryuufansubs.com/?page_id=28 But if you had to come here to find that out… we prolly don’t want you.
Are you training?
Will you reseed torrent?
_Firebird_ twinkle- on IRC.
Is X uncensored?
If something airs uncensored, we will do that version as well or instead of. If we don’t show an uncensored version, it means it isn’t available and you’ll have to wait for the BD.
Will you release BDs for X?
If we liked the show enough, we may do BDs. We will announce any such projects, but they are likely to be slow releases. TV projects take priority over BDs.
Firebird likes fire and dragons.
