Medaka Box

This show is way more work than it’s worth, especially considering the possibility of it getting more seasons/episodes (c’mon, it’s a moderately popular wsj series, it’ll get more). We barely get it released before the CR stream because of our schedules anyway. We rarely drop anything, but I made the mistake of taking on too much this season. Therefore, Medaka Box is dropped. We do not plan on dropping anything else though, barring any unforeseen circumstances of course.

tl;dr Grab Horriblesubs.

    I hope you get shot! I used your subs to translate for the last 4 fucking weeks!

  2. hurr says:

    Well, fuck you then. Regards.

  3. croPath says:

    come on you’re the only good group thats doing it and more then a few ppl are willing to wait to get good just look at commie they may be late a week or two but plenty of ppl still wait for their releases

    • Quattro says:

      It’s not really about speed. It’s too much work for a show we hardly want to work on anymore. Why should we torture ourselves on something that may get even more episodes?

      • cyrills says:

        yeah, i know how it feel…doing a job that you dont like it…
        thanks guys did a good job.

  4. Shawn263241 says:

    Well fuck.

  5. ToumaXMisaka says:

    Thanks for your efforts, I can only imagine how hard it must be to sub

  6. The_Drunken_One says:

    Thats quite depressing news, ah well appreciate all the work you guys already did on it, and look forward to the others your still subbing. Thanks for the hard work/time you put into this.

  7. KaiKen says:

    Wasn’t watching it anyway, but come on now, it may be WSJ but it’s also GAINAX. This ain’t no Aim for the Mahoromatic, I doubt it’ll get a 2nd season

    • Dizzy Miko says:

      Ahem…you obviously don’t know how good the manga is, then.

      Or did you forget that this is NisiOisiN’s work that we are talking about here?

      The beginning is stupid slow and a little boring but it gets a fuckton better as it goes on. I hope it does continue on and even introduce Kamogawa, the most epic anti-hero/antagonist/fighter EVER CONCIEVED!

      Though he does borderline what I think about Aikawa Jun. ~_^

  8. Kshathra says:

    Well, that sucks. I didn’t even know HS was riping this thanks to you guys fast releases.
    Maybe you’ll decide to work on 2nd or 3rd season though, 1st season is pretty much just an intro to the story.

  9. Supa says:

    >making a second season

  10. derp says:

    Thanks for all the hard work you put in this show, I will follow your suggestion to pick HS.

  11. GimmeAir says:

    Well, I have to say that honestly sucks, but it happens. Good luck with your other projects. I just hope you don’t drop any more!

    Thanks for all the effort!

  12. skylion says:

    Does this count as ironic? I dropped watching the show!?

  13. Ikari says:

    Ok, I can understand when you have too much series and need to drop something.
    But I think this is the totally wrong series to drop.

    Best thing to drop would be that retarded Zetman crap. That bread commercial series isn’t all that good either – while it has al least great art and chara designs going for it, that’s it. It’s devoid of any trace of story (at least in the first two episodes I’ve seen so far), just one big bread commercial about how everyone loves bread.

    Besides that, Zetman is still done by Doki, Hatsuyuki and… ok, the trollsubs by Hadena don’t count.
    The bread commercial ist still done by Hiryuu (and again trollsubs by Hadena).
    Medaka however… It’s quite cruel to tell the people to go watch the HorribleSubs rips, which are, well, horrible, as the name says it.
    While Medaka isn’t the best series this season, it’s still clearly better than the other two.

    Thus, please overthink your decision about which series to drop. That Zetman junk or the bread commercial should be much rather dropped, if you don’t have the time.

    • Quattro says:

      No. This isn’t about what series is “good” or “bad,” it’s about the fact that Medaka Box is more work than it’s worth. Neither Zetman nor Shining Hearts really contribute much to the overload, but Medaka Box does.

      Besides, you can always grab FFF for this if you don’t like Horriblesubs for whatever reason.

    • Ikari a shit says:

      Just dropped on by to tell you how much of a faggot you are for hating on shining bread, and having shit taste in general.

    • Kotesukesai says:

      When your age exceeds the amount of put-downs you throw out, then I will know you have graduated from mainstream shonen. At that point you may perhaps see how things like Zetman are all we have left to save what we now know to be a dying industry (Although 2011 has been redeeming, when I think of 2008-2010 I somewhat die on the inside).

  14. random passing fag says:

    followed you guys for the first time for this show then you drop it like its hot? i am disappoint. FFF while good is slow as fuck!


  15. Quazacolt says:

    oh wow the hate you guys are getting for this.

    thanks for the work so far, i dont get why people still care about sticking on specific fansubs and cant just switch horriblesubs or something as per the post tldr :P

  16. Index says:

    I can only say fuck fuck fuck!

    and realize that It won’t change anything.

  17. Haidaraaaaa! says:

    Well, this is sad news. only reason I picked up medaka was because you guys were subbing it. oh well.

  18. Kal says:

    Hey, thanks for all the work (because it IS work, and hard too). I’m sure you guys do not like dropping stuff either, but such is life. Thanks for the effort, and keep it up :)

  19. Sobre says:

    Too bad to hear it, but well thanks for the past releases.

  20. Sapowi says:

    Get fucked by a horse! D:<

  21. justthisguyyoknow says:

    That sure is a whole bunch of entitlement from some people. Maybe people have lost perspective, or maybe I’m just getting old relative to others, but I remember a time when I waited weeks if not months for an episode of a series to come out. A series just getting dropped (or even the whole group vanishing) partway through wasn’t uncommon. A series not getting subbed at all was even more common.

    And now people whine because they might have to settle for a professionally translated version shortly after it airs in Japan. My condolences.

    (“Get off my lawn,” etc.)

    • AsuraE says:

      You’re not old, you’re just one of the few people left who still watch anime for the enjoyment of the show rather than the faggotry related to who subs what and how good said subs are :>

      But dem 20MB rm files. Those were the days

  22. vask says:

    this made me sad. -=[ i wish you guys would reconsider.

  23. miichan19 says:

    i see,i wish i can help to subbing the anime,but i dont know japanese and its kinda suck that u guys drop this anime T_T but i wish u luck on the future,gonna go cheak other subber then~beside FFF and HS

    • AsuraE says:

      Let me save you some time – HS if you wanna watch it asap (ie if you enjoy anime) or FFE if you suffered years of social isolation at high school, survived said isolation by watching anime and now don’t know what to do as an adult so you attempt to be elitist by only watching the “best” subtitles for your chinese cartoons.

      • miichan19 says:

        i dont know abt hs or ffe,i try to search other but its seem only hs,ffe and u guys subbing this anime,other new fansuber seem subbing other anime,guess i will take your offer on hs,thnks anyway~

  24. Segev says:

    Aw well, that’s awful news.
    I really liked this show (with your subs DUH) and it’s sad to hear.
    Thanks for all of your effort & work on this show, It was lovely as long it lasted.
    (I planned to use your subs to translate it to hebrew, but i guess i’ll drop it… :/)

  25. My Required Name says:

    Good choice. Don’t take this the wrong way, but HorribleSubs are actually better this time around. It’s you guys’ decision, if it’s too much work and there’s an alternative, people won’t mind that much. I’ll just look forward to Apollon, Pirates, and Phi Brain then :3.

    • AsuraE says:

      That’s pretty much why we dropped it. Sure we have (at least I’m assuming) better typesetting, encoding and editing, but as lim(effort)->∞ + lim(rewards) -> 0 for a series it’s not worth doing.

      Unless it has cats. Like poyopoyo. Which I am currently working on.

      • My Required Name says:

        Oh, but of course.
        Crunchy may have paid translators, but the release itself looks meh. I’ll miss your release since it’s encoded and edited nicely instead of being a rip.

  26. msa502 says:

    I’d rather you dropped Shining Bread than this. This show were much more enjoyable than Shining Bread.
    Are you planning on dropped Phi Brain S2 too? I hope not.

  27. follower says:

    oh well i hope u guys drop more anime~ :) phi brain 2nd is ok,hmm other i dont know~

  28. Anonymous says:

    I completely understand. Medaka Box anime is full of shit.

    Anyway, looking forward to your Shining Bread releases, I hope you won’t drop that one!

  29. andre says:

    thanks anyway for all of your effort. dont take all the comments seriously

  30. Mafuyoo says:

    I may be the first, but ignore the rest. Good job dropping Medaka Box.

  31. rittyC says:

    delayed rage. ><

  32. Name says:

    Well this is depressing, and my OCD wont let me pick up from midway. Guess i’ll have to delete all the episodes I got from you guys and redownload from the beginning.

  33. STINKY says:


  34. Stinky says:

    Ahh that totally blows. The quality of your encode was the best. I master stuff from LD’s so I have a critical eye. Just checked your encodes against all others and it is, I mean WAS the best. Gonna just forget about this show and wait for Bluray rips now.
    Email me if you start doing it again. Sorry buy i’m not into Apollon and some dude in a tub, bouncy big female tits are preferred.

  35. stinky says:

    You gays can all go watch Appolon in a tub.

  36. stinky says:

    wow none of my comments showed till i turned on cookies. Sorry for the spams and similar rants

  37. Jellayrei says:

    Aww, I really enjoyed your guys’s subs =( thanks for your hard work up until this point. Keep up the good work.

  38. Matt says:

    Why Not?

  39. Dizzy Miko says:

    This does suck but it’s completely understandable. Even as big a NisiOisiN fan I am, I felt the beginning of this series dragged on for a little bit, even in the manga. But it’ll be necessary for characters introduced later and, ultimately, a part of the main storyline.

    You guys did really good, though. Have appreciated your work since I first found you a little while ago.

  40. Matthew says:

    Thanks for your work in releasing the first 4 episodes; I agree in that your time will be better spent in focusing on less long time-spanning projects. I really like the quality of your subs and hope you will continue this quality in your other releases, Thanks again, and keep it up!

  41. Michael Allen says:

    Now I know why my Medaka Box episodes are late compared to other anime.

    I just read this post. And it’s sad. You (WhyNot?) and sage are the best subgroups (for me) and has the highest priority in my list.

    Well, that’s life. Thanks for the hardwork and effort. =)

    I’ll continue to patronize your group in other anime; Shining Hearts, Phi Brain II, Zetman and other future anime. =)

    I know that this is redundant but I shall still say it; You’re the best! (alongside with sage)

    *thumbs up*
