This season has been struck by a rather surprising problem so far. There are no subs. One has to wonder what happened, are fansubbers burned out, distracted by Easter, busy finishing up FMA:B or all just wanting a piece of the K-On pie. Personally, if it’s the latter, I hope crunchyroll get K-On. I think it’d be funny. It’s actually rather puzzling, beyond Angel Beats, all the shows that look they’ll have great stories have been ignored. Of course, some shows that look like total kids crap have been ignored too.
What shows are currently lacking subs? Ookiku Furikabutte:Season 2, Rainbow, Jewel Pets, SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors, Hakuouki, Giant Killing, Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri, Saikyou Busho-den Sangoku Engi, Metal Fight Beyblade- Explosion, Senkou no Night Raid and Marie & Gali 2.0.
To be fair, we probably don’t need Jewel Pets, SD Gunda, Hime-Chen or Beyblade. It already seemed unlikely Rainbow would get anyone to sub it. Marie & Gali didn’t even have a subber for its first season. Senkou no Night Raid will probably take awhile to sub.
Taken from that list, what’s left it Ookiku Furikabutte, Hakuouki, Giant Killing, and Saikyou Busho-den Sangoku Engi, which look to be at the very least, decent shows, which make it very puzzling that they still lack subs. Is because some of those are sports shows? I thought Cross Game made it clear sports anime can be good. It is that one of them is a video game adaptation, which usually suck? Maybe. And maybe no one cares about the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Still, for anyone wanting to see any of these shows, it’s a bummer. Giant Killing is one of the shows I was looking forward to the most, giving DEEN the benefit of the doubt.
It’s not like there’s anything we can do about it.
I can’t just flash fansubbers my boobs.
Still, if this remains a problem in further seasons, this could drastically change the way season previews work. Rather then expecting someone will sub almost everything, it may turn into a guessing game on what WILL be subbed, and what won’t.
Man, it’s still not fair that KissXSis has subs…
