Summer 2018 Season Pick Ups

It’s that time again as a new season is on its way. After great deliberation, here is what the [LostYears] group has decided to pick up this season:

  1. Attack on Titan Season 3
  2. Hanebado! *Surprise Pick-up!*
  3. Harukana Receive
  4. Magical Girl Raising Project
  5. Overlord III

Continuing from last season:

  1. My Hero Academia Season 3
  2. Steins;Gate 0

Several members of our staff are taking a break this season either due to burnout or vacation. We really need more staff, so if you’re interested in joining to team contact us! In any event, for a while it looked like we may have had to sit this season out, which was why we’ve taken so long to announce our season pick ups this time. However a few things came together and we’ve received word of some fansub group picks that allowed us to move forward.

Since DDY seems to be stalling out on Attack on Titan 3 and their video quality was sub-par and their editing introduces TL errors, it seems we’ll be doing the show with our own encode and subtitles thanks to Scyrous and kBaraka. Just depends at this point if kBaraka can find the time and desire between the other weeklies else we’ll fall back to DDY or unedited CR depending on what the staff decide when the time comes. I think we may have a couple HDTV cappers on standby to cap the Adult Swim airing for that sweet 5.1 audio rather than rolling with the 2.0 audio from FUNimationNOW too. If you’re capable of capping and would like to be a back-up in-case of emergency contact us!

Overlord III will be an in-house production, thanks to kBaraka (timing, typesetting, editing) , CaptainJet (2nd pass edit, QC), Etzimal (ktime), and myself (encode).

Magical Girl Raising Project, while it technically was released two years ago, it’s getting a weekly English dub now. As a result we’ll be doing a dual-audio remux utilizing GJM’s Blu-ray release. Hanebado! will be a dual-audio remux of Bakemono’s release. While Harukana Receive will be a Tsundere remux.

Of course, we’ll continue our two series that continue from spring: Steins;Gate 0 and My Hero Academia Season 3, both of which are technically in-house, except for the video for MHA is a straight CR rip since we didn’t have anyone to step up as an encoder for it at the time when it started.

It’s possible a few changes to our season line up can happen. You never know if we’ll have a surprise random pick up or something. It’s possible we’ll pick up The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar, depends on staff member Idle (he’s expressed willingness) and how much demand there is for it.

As always, we’d love to pick up more, but lack of staff availability and fansub decline prevents us. We’re always looking for others who’d like to join the team to release more Simuldub dual-audio series. If you’re interested in applying, please contact us, either in the comments, through the forum, or preferably on our IRC channel.

Spring 2018 Season Pick Ups

It’s that time again as a new season is on its way. After great deliberation, here is what the [LostYears] group has decided to pick up this season:

  1. Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory
  2. High School DxD Hero
  3. Golden Kamuy
  4. Steins;Gate 0

Continuing from last season:

  1. Darling in the FranXX

High School DxD Hero will be a remux of the 1080p encodes from [AnimeGuddoRivals] and will utilize modified SubDESU (maybe not) subtitles. Golden Kamuy will be a dual-audio remux of [Chyuu], Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory will be a remux of [DDY], and finally Steins;Gate 0 will be a joint effort and feature an original encode with subtitles done by the team.

Darling in the FranXX is continuing from last season and features original video and subtitle work as well. Death March has finished airing, but we’ll continue to release episodes as soon as they’re done and will definitely be finishing it up.

If Netflix releases Fate/Extra: Last Encore sometime this season, there is a high probability that we’ll release a dual-audio remux of it featuring [Chyuu]’s video and subtitle work (if they finish it up before hand that is).

We’d love to pick up more, but lack of staff availability and fansub decline prevents us. We’re always looking for others who’d like to join the team to release more Simuldub dual-audio series. If you’re interested in applying, please contact us, either in the comments, through the forum, or preferably on our IRC channel.

UPDATE: One more series picked up and added to the list above.

Winter 2017-2018 Season Pick Ups

It’s that time again as a new season is on its way. Here is what the [LostYears] group will be working on this season:

  1. Citrus
  2. Darling in the FranXX
  3. Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody
  4. Ito Junji: Collection
  5. Overlord II
  6. Violet Evergarden

Continuing from last season:

  1. The Ancient Magus’ Bride

As usual, plans can change and we may pick up more or we may not. Some staff displayed interest in ‘Basilisk: The Ouka Ninja Scrolls’ and ‘Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card’, but lack of staff to fulfill all the roles prevented the group from picking them up.

We’re currently looking for others who’d like to join the team to release more Simuldub dual-audio series. If you’re interested in applying, please contact us, either in the comments, through the forum, or preferably on our IRC channel.

Summer 2017 Season Pick Ups

This season was already a fairly weak line-up in my opinion, but the series picked up for Simuldub is even weaker. Unfortunately all the series we were most interested in, aren’t being Simuldubbed this season, though there is a chance that the Simuldub line-up still has a few more series to be announced. However the likelihood of them being what we were most hyped for is slim to none considering they’re Amazon and Netflix exclusive shows. Netflix has a habit of dubbing their pick ups, but they only release episodes in a batch after the season is completed so we’re looking at a 3-4 month wait on that front.

Then the whole issue with fansubs dying, lack of releases to utilize, and lack of staff able to maintain the amount of series we had been capable of picking up in past seasons… thus this season’s pick ups are rather slim at this point, but they are as follows:

1. Knight’s & Magic (July 30th)
2. New Game! (Season 1) (July 14th, Gonna be delayed a bit)
3. New Game!! (Season 2) (August 8th)
4. My First Girlfriend is a Gal (August 2nd)
5. Tsuredure Children (August 16th)
6. In Another World With My Smartphone (August 6th)

These can still be subject to change, especially if more series are announced for the Simuldub line-up, but these are what we’re planning to do at this time.

We’ll also currently looking for others who’d like to join the team to release more Simuldub dual-audio series. So if you’re interested in applying, please contact us, either in the comments, through the forum, or preferably on our IRC channel.

Now Hiring: All Positions (Typesetters Especially)

We initially started the group as a dual-audio alternative of fansub-only releases by remuxing existing fansubs with Simuldub audio. However in recent seasons we’ve watched as fansub groups and fansubbing itself has died out. A lot of last season (and previous seasons) has seen the majority of shows no longer being covered by fansub groups and those that do get covered tend to see massive delays and eventually get stalled into oblivion.

Relying on groups for the backbone of our remuxes has become something we can no longer reliably rely on and as you can see, quite a few shows (Fuuka, Sakura Quest, Masamune-kun, Kobayashi, Love Tyrant) have ultimately been indefinitely stalled while for some shows we’ve managed to pick up the slack on and cover ourselves (Akashic, Chain Chronicle, Clockwork Planet, Drifters, KADO). Unfortunately we can only stretch our staff to do so much at a time and the few staff members we have had working on the shows are tired and getting burned out. So as we take on more responsibility with future releases, we need a larger, more capable team to keep things fresh and going strong.

This is where you come in. We especially need typesetters willing to typeset signs and on-screen-text. We can currently handle the audio syncing and video encoding, but it would of course always be nice to have more people on board so people can take breaks, go on vacation, and not be stressed week to week about constantly being available. We could always use timers, encoders, editors, distro, and qc members as well. We’d prefer if you’re already experienced and capable of handling the tasks, but if you’re willing to learn, we would be willing to help teach.

If you’d like to apply, either comment here on this post, on our recruitment page, PM Koby on the forum, or contact Koby on the IRC channel.
