A New Direction

Unrelated picture is unrelated but still cute. Regardless, Shini-subs will be going in a new direction now as we no longer have time to sub. Instead, Yuzu-chan and I are going to give unbiased opinions of anime’s that we have watched recently. We won’t be reviewing quality of subs and subbers, etc, our aim is merely to inform everyone about anime’s that we have seen and enjoyed and that we would like others to know about. So please bear with us as we continue to place articles every now and again about anime’s that are good to us.

We may continue to sub again in the future when we have time, but for now this will be a productive use of our time and resources.

Hope you enjoy reading our reviews.

Yuzu-chan & Shinisaki




Merry Xmas and A Happy New Year

anime-christmas-tree-22Everyone at Shini-subs wishes you all wherever you are in the world, a Happy Christmas and a Good New Year. With a New Year will come new projects as I have the time to sub again. So this is me also advertising for staff, if you are interested please email me at

We are still alive

Just a quick note to say we are still alive. Whilst we have no plans to sub any airing shows for a while, be sure that we still have BD projects in the works. These will be announced in due time.

Cardfight Vanguard Update

Well, i’m sorry it has come to this. Our first dropped show is Cardfight Vanguard. This is mainly due to the fact that our TL from this joint couldnt TL it for a few weeks, and then Crunchy picked it up, so we were deciding what would happen there. In the end, having spoken to all staff members involved, we have agreed to drop this project. Our deepest condolences for those who have been waiting patiently for our next episode, but don’t despair, we have other shows and the backlog to catch up with, and now that i actually have time on my hands we’ll start subbing again.

Cardfight Vanguard – Asia Circuit Hen – Episode 1

No, this is not a joke.

Two seasons back, we attempted to joint with another group. They would provide the translation and the encodes, and we would do the timing, typesetting, and editing. It was a really nice idea, but we couldn’t find a show that was undersubbed enough to make the joint worthwhile.

Until now.

I loved the first season of Cardfight Vanguard. Yes, all 65 episodes. So you can imagine my disappointment when Crunchyroll did not begin streaming the second season, Asia Circuit Chapter. I was completely distraught. This show had been part of my weekly routine for over a year. Whatever would I do without it?

Sub it, of course!

I convinced the wonderful people at Nyancat to translate the show, and here we are now. Due to it being more of a kid’s show, caps aren’t as easy to come across, which is why we’re starting a bit late. However, we have a capper getting this show for us, so hopefully this will be a success!

Just where the hell did we go?

Chitose > All
Something broke. Badly.
Firstly, someone opted to seed via UDP from this server on port 80 (no names). Bad idea, because OVH has an automated system that detects suspected DDoS attacks. And guess who got hit by it, seeding at a few hundred mbit/s. So the server was down for a while, while myself and shini negotiated with OVH in order to bring the server back online. It worked! …and the HDD promptly failed. So the past few days forever has been taken up with backups, more backups, log inspection, cursing at shini for him not enabling certain logs, multiplayer notepad on a recovery VNC, attempting to fix a broken windows installation without direct access to the machine, and trying to see if we could afford to lose a terrabyte of data (granted, 300GB of that was stuff from me) in order to back up to storage device.

Shini Addition: So, in order to fix this, we now have a second server, Yui. AriGold and I have spent days and weeks trying to get Mikan back online. Huge amounts of stress involved, but at the end of the day, we got there. Big thanks to AriGold for setting up Yui and Mikan once we had them back. Thanks to Hiroto also for helping with the commandline copying we had to resort to because the program OVH supplies to back up their server is about as much use as a wet paper bag.

On a better note, we’re back, and we even saved the database. So with that, expect more subbing soon……..once i recover, that is.

PS: Windows command line sucks; command line on windows is far slower than in *nix and has no standards for programs’ options.
PPS: Event viewer not logging by default sucks.
PPPS: Windows sucks for servers.
PPPPS: Shini, get on Tribes: Ascend.
PPPPPS: Shinisaki: NEVER!!!!!! :D

Nisemonogatari Status and Next Season Pre-Planning

Cloche Leythal Pastalia
Because after two years of procrastination, I have finally achieved every possible ending in the Ar tonelico trilogy.

So yeah. Hi. How have all of you patient leechers been?

Project Update

Ok, small project update

  • After Story

This project is still ongoing, awaiting Vol 4.

  • Infinite Stratos & Yumekui Merry

Both of these shows are NOT dropped, we are sorting BD’s and will release each series in 1 batch, so please wait for that.

  • Mitsudomoe S1 and 2

These are also not dropped. S1 is currently awaiting re-timing and TS checking before final QC and Batch. S2 is awaiting BD’s (if anyone can link us to torrents or say they found them on Share, it would be appreciated).

  • Strike Witches

Ok, this show is complex. We released an episode, and for those that remember, it was horrid, so we are going to start again….from scratch. Therefore, when we start releasing this show again, it will be as if we never did the previous 01….or 01v1….or 01v2(which i never got round to releasing).

  • Airing Show

We are doing an airing show this season as well. Pay attention to this.

That about sums up the update for now. Thanks for continuing to follow us.

Recruitment time again: TL’s and Editors/QCers

Ok, its nearly summer time, and we are in need of a Translator and an Editor/QCer. If you think you are up to the task, please contact Shinisaki or AriGold in the IRC recruits channel, or email Shinisaki at

Hope to hear from you soon.

Shini is back, lets all hug

I want to give her a hug, dont you?

Im back. Believe it or not. Therefore this means both good and bad things. First thing is first, all winter shows were not dropped, we will be carrying them on as Blu-rays are released. Secondly, we are not doing a spring show due to backlog caused by my absence. so we are going to clear the backlog this season, and hopefully pick up a show again in Summer. Thats all for now. Expect releases again soon, but im not going to put a timestamp on it.
