Upcoming Plans – Winter 2013

Rin & Saya is Love ❤

It’s hard to believe that this season flew by so quickly. We’re only a few days away from releasing our final episode of Little Busters! ~Refrain~. The question I’ve been asked quite a lot lately have all been about our upcoming plans for next season – Winter 2014 and beyond that. My first response has always been, we’ll see when the time comes, but as you well know, that time is pretty much now. To be honest, I’ve been enjoying each week of subbing Little Busters! ~Refrain~ and I’m sure our team share the same sentiments. We may have our ups and downs, but it would be a blatant lie to say we didn’t gain any enjoyment out of what we have done this past season.

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for watching our subs and for giving us feedback, we started only several months ago and we have grown bigger over the course of the season. Without your support, we would not have been able to come together and sub all episodes of Little Busters! ~Refrain~ and the Little Busters! OVA.

Secondly, I would like to thank the rest of our team for sticking with us and for working together on each release. We had some weeks where we had less staff, but in the end we managed to get each release out.

Now onto our future plans, I’ve been discussing with our staff for the past few weeks about what we planned to do in the upcoming season after Little Busters! ~Refrain~ finishes airing. At first, we came together as a group to solely sub for Little Busters! ~Refrain~. We also thought that we would have to sub Little Busters! EX after the season ended. We still plan to do so but they will be released in a slightly different format since they are going to be bundled as an OVA with each of the BD volumes.

Our current confirmed future plans in no particular order include the following:

  • Little Busters! ~Refrain~ Batch (Batch fixes after season ends.)
  • Little Busters! ~Refrain~ BDs (As they come out.)
  • Little Busters! EX (As they come out. Similar to our OVA release.)
  • Website Move (WordPress is limiting, and having a dedicated WordPress site will give us more freedom.)

Some other plans we might have in the future include the following:

  • Sub a show in the upcoming season (We’re up for taking some suggestions here.)
  • Translate the game included with the first Little Busters! ~Refrain~ BD volume

In order to achieve some of our goals and stretch goals into the future, we are also officially looking for more staff members. Notably, we are looking for TLs for the upcoming season. If you would like to apply as a TL, just leave a comment below and we’ll try to get in contact with you as soon as possible.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

    I looked up anime 2014 winter and searched a bit. You guys might like doing this one.

    Looking forward to the batches of refrain and the ecstacy eps. ^^


    This is a good site to see who is planning to sub or thinking about subbing which series.

    It’s hard to tell right now since CR has not yet announced the series they will pick up, but for what it is worth I could tentatively suggest Nourin.

    Then again, I don’t know if it would be to your staff’s taste – nothing like working on a series that makes your flesh creep in agony. -_-

    Vivid has comitted to pupa iirc

    Thank you all for doing this! I was sad when UTW dropped it and subbed other shows people were already doing instead of this. You guys did a better job than they did in S1 too! I love the VN terms you guys stuck with. Wonderful job and I cant wait to see more from you

  7. Kenshin_sama says:

    I’d love to see you guys sub Mahou Sensou or Sakura Trick if it isn’t simulcasted. 🙂

  8. Flower says:

    What series would YOU all like to do or be interested in?

  9. AAA says:

    What about the first season’s BD?

  10. olhybrius says:

    I’m such a noob but what are batches and BDs ? 8D

    (and also, what’s a TL ? x) )

    Anyway, you’ve done such a great job. Even Kyousuke wouldn’t have predicted how amazing your work turned out. Seriously, I’m glad I could watch the show with quality subs, you even done better than UTW in my opinion. Thanks a lot for giving me something to wait for each week. Still looking forward to your subbed version of Refrain’s final episode. See you soon, since it’s only the beginning…

    Thanks for the hard work! What about a visual novel? Angel Beats is coming out next year. -cough-

  13. Aspirety says:

    There’s a game bundled with the BD?

  14. xiu says:

    hi, thank you very much for ur work!
    how about doing the BD’s for the first season?
    until now no group showing them any attention :’-(

  15. QuickStart says:

    I can’t wait for the EX releases since at this point I’ve given up hope of the routes in the VN being translated in my life time.

  16. vaans02 says:

    I can only think of two that deserves to be properly subbed.

    1. Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta
    2. Wake Up, Girls.

    Thank you for subbing Little Busters Refrain.

    Ja ne,
