Back from a period without projects, simply because there hasn't been anything worth subbing. Until now. "Loveless" shows promise to be good, so to all of you out there wondering where in the world we have been, well, here we are, back at last.

(If you are offended by even hints of yaoi, don't bother.)

Edit: Judging from the current response to this post, I think I should put this in bold: If you are offended by even hints of yaoi, don't bother. This is a shounen-ai series.

I've seen part of the raw... Doesn't look like my cup of tea. So, no hope in seeing you guys do Emma?

Anonymous said...

well i quite like Sukisyo, especially the OP/ED themes. animes like these may be boy/boy but there is a reasonable or good story but not be sexually explicit. they would be disgusting if they were

excuse me. i dont know how that happened

Thank you for Loveless! Definately one of the best anime of the season!

Yuki said...

:O welcome back! we missed you!
thank you for doing Loveless! I have been looking forward to seeing this series fansubbed, and imagine my surprise when I found out you guys were doing it! I'm looking forward to the good quality subs ^^
gambatte yo~!

Emperor Hirohito said...

Now we finally know what part of the body that We Suck actually sucks.

Torgen said...

emperor hirohito: Or at least, you think you know...
Remember when we subbed Popotan? How do you explain that one?

kimihiro said...

Pardon me while I squee with glee like an idiot..thanks so much for doing Lovelees..i look forward to seeing the subs n___n

Emperor Hirohito said...

I remember, though Popotan was released by dragos' group, and we all know how good Drago is at t/l. Also, I have to admit, you guys know what you are doing and have done good projects. It just saddens me to have some small organization I respected be involved in something such as this. I really love my culture, though there are certain things(shounen-ai, yaoi) that I dislike about it. I think everyone has certain things about their culture which they dislike.

Emilia said...

Omg, shounen-ai!!!! pretty boy + pretty boy + neko mimi.. just can't get any better! ^^ *worships suck*

Arc said...

Wow. Looks like it's as clear as sky that you guys would and have gotten hoarded by fangirls.

Mmm, I wonder why fangirls are generally so much more... enthusiastic.

Anyhow, I'm with hirohito, even though you guys don't need anymore comments like that.

Anonymous said...

Don't really see why people need to comment if they have a problem with shounen-ai. I certainly don't pester fansubbers who decide to do shows not to my taste.

Anyway, all I wanted to say was I'm glad you picked up the project and I know from UPS you'll do a great job of it =)Thank you!

DUD WTF is this Gay crap. OMFG i hope you r wright about this anime. It better get better. Now i am going to try to wipe the images out my head by waching a marathon of lisbo porn.

Let's not turn in this into a sexual debate, please. Show your intelligence by simply not watching the show if you don't like it.

I too would have rather seen Suck sub something else, but then again I guess there could be people who'd hate Emma as well. Suck should do what Suck wants to do, and if they want to share their work with us that's even better. Go for it, Suck! (No awfully bad pun intended, by the way.) Make sure you have fun doing whatever you do.


I just hope another group will pick up Emma. I think it's worth it.

blueImpulse said...

To Message: I give you a round of applause.

To those of you making immature OMG!Yaoi!Sux0r!comments: I give you each a nice, warm cup of STFU.

To Los Sucks: I give you my appreciation for subbing Loveless - I didn't think you guys would do it, since you don't seem to be shounen-ai fans, but you were able to look beyond the subject matter and pick up what seems to be a good anime. (Unfortunately I didn't get to DL the entire episode today...bloody residence network with 100MB daily upload limit...but I'll have the whole episode by Monday at the latest and I can post more about it.)

To myself: I give myself a crow for me to eat, for thinking that We Suck would not pick up Loveless.

ryo0oki said...

Oh... my god. I was just downloading random anime, and stumbled upon Loveless. I'm so glad you guys picked it up :O *eternal gratitude* please continue! <3

your work i so cool. please continue

I'm a reader of the Loveless Manga and I have to say thank you for subbing the Anime. It may be shounen-ai, which may turn some people away, but there are many elements to Loveless that makes it different from everything else. Once again- thank you for subbing it and I hope you keep doing so!

Thank you so much for doing Loveless! *hugs SUCK* You have made us shounen-ai -fangirls very happy ^_^

Thanks so much for subbing Loveless!!! You really made so many fangirls, including me, uber happy! I was so excited when I found out that Loveless episode 1 was up for download. Love you guys!!!! ^__^

OMG!! I love you guys so much *hugs everyone* thanks so much for picking this up ^^

jiayi said...

Thank you for subbing Loveless! I never had the chance to read the actual manga before, but maybe I will now. The plot is very intriguing, not to mention the animation is pretty nice, compared to the other current BL anime (Sukisyo). Awesome translations might I add ^^ Keep up the good work <3

Anonymous said...

just wanted to add my thanks for loveless! i'd been looking forward to this anime. :3

Marina said...

Thank you for picking up Loveless! It seems to have outstanding, incredibly gorgeous art, and I'm so glad I can now see that for myself! ^^

Does anyone know of an IRC channel/serve that serves Loveless?

I'm behind a university firewall, so BT is beyond out of the question. Any hints as to where to go to get this through IRC would be greatly appreciated.

Ishtar said...

Yay for Suck. You have made seeral people I know very happy for subbing this! Thanks ;)

Kainu1329 said...

Thanks for doing this, I really like this genre...

Torgen said...

Exactly how is it that your university firewall prevents you from using BitTorrent? If you can't receive incoming connections, that shouldn't be a problem because you can still download over outgoing connections. If your uniersity blocks connections to ports 6881-6889 (incoming and outgoing), it shouldn't be a problem as long as someone on the torrent has their port set to something else (which is usually a good policy anyways, in case your ISP gets uppity). If you have a problem with daily transfer limits, you could download part of it one day, then pause the torrent and resume the next day--then again, the amount you will upload by the time you're finished downloading shouldn't be that much, so this shouldn't even be an issue. If your university examines all outgoing connections to determine if they contain the BitTorrent handshaking protocol, then you're in a bit more trouble, but I think finding a friend with DSL and a USB key is a solution. It doesn't matter if he likes Loveless or not, since he doesn't need to watch it once he's downloaded it--he just needs to give it to you.

Thank you for subbing Loveless. I really like Minagawa Junko and her voice for Echizen Ryoma, and so, I'm happy to hear it again soon after Prince of Tennis ended. I am also a fan of shounen-ai and deep plots, and Loveless provides both, so I'm very pleased with it. So thank you very much!!!!

Woohoo! Someone picked up Loveless. Good thing, I needed my porn fix.

...no, really. Thanks a lot for picking it up. :) Am really looking forward to it.

From the looks of the characters and seiyuu, I might turn into a Loveless fanboy >.> The characters look likeable and there's nekomimi ^o.o^. *downloads now*

Meli said...

Thanks for subbing Loveless. I don't know much about it, but the art style is fantastic and I want to find out what's going on.

Space Alien said...

Regardless of anything, it seems like a really good show. Atmosphere and all. Sukisyo was... uhm.... well... anyway, this one is much more tolerable haha! :) Thanks a lot for subtitling it!

sherry said...

Anonymous said...

pm oops thoguth it might fit hehe, yeah I also love sukisho and Gravitation lol and this is just great now ^__^. I had just bought the managa when I was in japan last week, and nearly went crazy when I ´saw the first EP up ^__^

Kuvalda said...

Seems like it should be a rather good series, however I just wanted to mention that your video seems to be a bit off of it's aspect ratio...a bit squished from the sides...other than that your quality seems pretty good.

obscure said...

Wow just want to say thank you so much for subbing this!! *grinz*

Was looking forward to the release of the anime!

Gambatte!

Anonymous said...

Loveless is just GREAT!!!!
I'm so glad that you guys picked it up^^
Hope that you'll continue with it to the very end!
I love the op and ed, especially the ed!! The fight scenes aren't that bad either.....Who says that shonen-ai should be just two bishis kissing? (though that's what makes fan girls and the occasional fan guys go *squeal*~~^^)

Azureblaze said...

Thank you so much for subbing this ! I looove it! Keep going! Fighto!

Anonymous said...

i really love the ending theme, journey. Where can i find this? Would it be possible for you guys to provide the bittorrent to the .mp3?

Torgen said...

When the OP/ED single comes out at the end of May, you could always, you know, buy it. (Link in the sidebar to the right.)

Paradigm Shifter said...

forgive my ignorance...what the heck is a fansub?

lavalyn said...

paradigm_shifter: "fansub" == subtitling by fans. Non-professional work; we subtitle anime because we like the series and want to share in our liking of it.

thank you so very much for picking up Loveless. I really love this anime!

Whaaa, I'll be always greateful for your choice to pick Loveless..!
It's just wonderful... thanks!

Yay, hurray for We Suck C*cks. Thanks

Anonymous said...

You know you could suck even *more* if you choose a pink and greenish blinking font for the subtitles. You get far with the current one, but there's so much more you could do.

Anonymous said...

There are hundreds of different anime genres being subbed. Subbing one shounen-ai anime isn't going to hurt you. I don't see why there are people complaining. Just don't download it and wait for We Suck to do an anime you like.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for subbing Loveless. I'm impressed with your translations, and I'm glad to know you have put in the details in explaining some of the terms Soubi had mentioned in the anime.

Although, I think it would've been better if you'd selected another font which is easier to read and in white rather than yellow. Also adjust the placement a bit lower so we can see more of the screen.

Other than that, I think you're doing a fantastic job. Thanks for all the hard work. :) I look forward to the second episode of Loveless.

Serina said...

Eagerly awaiting episode 2 of Loveless!! This anime rocks and you have beautifully subbed it! Looking forward to seeing how the second episode compairs to the manga. I am a reader of the manga and it's one of the best series I've come across. ^_^= please don't be put of because of the yaoi themes...it gets even better X3 (plus I assure you nothing serious happens because by book 4 he still has his ears)

Hissori said...

Hey, you guys said you didn't want to translate the OP song until you had the official lyrics, right? I know the OP/ED single won't come out for quite a while, but Animedia just published the lyrics in their Spring Anime Song Collection booklet that came with the May issue, and I've uploaded the scan here if you want to use them.

Anyway though, you guys are doing an awesome job so far, and I hope you keep up the great work! :)

Torgen said...

Hissori: You win the prize.

Karo said...

Eh, We Suck Team, I read the loveless comic and it's sexy as hell (not in the "omfg lyk i wan hump pages pzl" way, but in the * * way ;;; ), so I'm glad the anime is being subbed by you guys <3 Furthermore, I don't see why people seem to think you owe them certain anime to be subbed or why they're complaining about you subbing something else. I wonder what they did for you to put you into so much debt (O o); (hint, that last bit was slightly sarcastic, which is noted due to the fact the internet fails at transmitting sarcasm.)

Anonymous said...

Just wanted to thank you for picking up Loveless. This is the first time I've seen anything you fansubbed. Watched the raws first. Several times. Then, found out about your release, downloaded and was totally amazed at the accuracy of your translation. Great job! So far, of all the fan subbers out there, I'd have to say your translations are the best I've seen.

Thanks for doing this and keep up the excellent work!

Caljiah said...

I found loveless raws while searching for shounen ai but I was pleasantly suprized to see that this story is actually... a story... It has a plot! But not only does it have a real and interesting plot... It is also endowed with beautifull animation! And character voices that really fit! I'm as enamored in this story line as I am with that of Bleach and Naruto. Honestly, I think the animation might even be better than those.

I'm unbelievably happy that the quality of your subbing matches the quality of the actual anime. Wich only makes it that much more interesting and apealing to watch.

Thanks from the bottom of my shounen-ai story loving heart.

*mildly sarcastic and having fun picking on homophobes*
And pay no attention to the silly people who come here just to bash on shounen-ai or Yaoi, or your name for that matter... What they really mean to say is that they cant come out of the closet so they are secretly downloading these episodes to get their jollies, but when they realized it wasn't hardcore like they wanted they came here to bash on you to get their anger out.

elione said...

Uhm, I downloaded ep1 of Loveless on BitTorrent, and watched on WMP... I found it very pixellized. Large blocks of text went missing, and there are lots of random floating boxes.

Am I the only one with this problem?

Anonymous said...

Danke for doing this We Suck, its really wonderful! ^-^

I don't mind homophobs that can spell things correctly and don't say 'EWWW, GAY!' and then turn around and look at lesbian porn.

-_-;;;

At least THOSE people aren't hypocrites!
