My work visa went horribly awry.
YesAsia has a preorder link up for Loveless disc 1. Using the link in the right column to look it up gives us a 10% commission on the disc itself and everything else you order from the site during that visit. Decide for yourself whether that makes you want to use that link, or just navigate through the YesAsia site itself. Oh, and the disc (and the other items on the same order as it) have free shipping to anywhere, which is why I always order from YesAsia and why I always recommend other people to do the same. (This means it's a good time to order other, cheaper things you'd normally have to pay shipping for, like OP/ED singles or soundtracks. *hint hint*) I'll attach the cover image to it sometime tonight; I'm using my brother's computer, and I don't feel good about sticking Picasa on it without telling him.
Oh, preorder link for Survive box 3 is also up.

First comment again! W00t!

I see that Anime North is showing Loveless 1-4 tonight at 6 pm (Friday schedule). If I get there in time, I'll see if they're showing the We Suck translation.

What does this Anime North do?? (what's the schedule for?)
I see they have Sensitive Pornograph there, and I was wondering if they show my release of Sen Porno?

All the best to you Torgen~

I think I'm obligated to link to Anime North, an anime convention in Toronto.

Sidekick boy, please bring the travel guide :)

So yes, Anime North was indeed using the We Suck fansubs of Loveless. Which is gratifying in some sense, but the large-screen projection makes all the encoding errors that much more painful to watch. :(

They also didn't put it into widescreen.

Is it okay Torgen that they have used you translations?
They could have asked _._" if the wanted them so much.

Anime North is like that; they use fansubs in their video rooms. While normally We Suck Fansubs disapproves of this, that there are no DVDs out anywhere kinda makes it hard to show Loveless otherwise.

why does it have to be so expensive, $50 for only 2 eps. At that rate its gonna cost well over $500 for the series

<Torgen> Next I'll claim that my translations are perfect, and any apparent errors are really elaborate typos.
<MSH> typos introduced by the keyboard of course, not by you!
<Torgen> naturally.
<_bla_> Torgen: why is group called "we suck" then not "my keyboard sucks" ?
<Torgen> typo.
<Torgen> Tyreal: not enough room in your nick for |sucks?
<Tyreal|Seeking|Enlightenment> crap!
<Tyreal|Seeking|Enlightenment> I suck!
* Tyreal|Seeking|Enlightenment is now known as Tyreal|Enlightenment|Sucks
<Tyreal|Enlightenment|Sucks> phew
<Tyreal|Sucks> Torgen: how DID you do those DVD type subs by the way :P
<Tyreal|Sucks> just got fonts that looked like that, or used an actual dvd subtitling proggie
<Torgen> It's Arial.
<Torgen> I used TextSub.
<Tyreal|Sucks> ahh
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Torgen: THERE YOU ARE
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Torgen: do you really think I suck ;_;
<Torgen> no.
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> oh good
<Torgen> I was a little worried that it'd be interpreted that way, though.
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Torgen: nah, I just laughed for about 2 hours
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> When I started getting pm's about it
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> "You're from we-suck"
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> apparently we-suck is popular with the french
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> Don't ask me why XD
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> They say they want to "worship you"
<Torgen> I'll put you in parenths next time so it's clear you just post the raws.
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> no, put Tyreal|Sucks in there
<Tyreal|Work|Sucks> I'm amused by this now, I kind of like it XD
<Shouta> <WeSuck> You = my bitch
<Torgen> Yeah, it's like taking the ghost suit of the ghost lego man and putting it on the astronaut lego man.
<Torgen> The ghost lego man is now just a normal lego man with a featureless face.
<Torgen> while the astronaut gets to look out through the ghost suit's eyeholes.
<Spyre> Torgen that has to be the best analogy ever.
<Spyre> Thats EXACTLY what its like!
* Spyre is in awe
<kara|hw> i told crustol...
<kara|hw> '私解析していてちょっぴり濡れちゃった。'
<kara|hw> he hasnt talked to me in a while
(Trans. note: this is Yoriko's line from about 7 minutes into BPS 03-2)
<AWAY-Bomb|AutoShow> Whee!
<AWAY-Bomb|AutoShow> Suck!
<Torgen> no, because Hawaii would have been right
<Torgen> but it was wrong.
<Torgen> so it was left.
<Torgen> :(foot)
<Torgen> Think you could co-produce some Gundam show with cat girls in it?
<Jekichu-clone> girls...
<Jekichu-clone> ...
<Jekichu-clone> ....
<Jekichu-clone> no
<Torgen> Like have cat-girls (and boys, and women, and men) instead of Newtypes or Coordinators...
<Torgen> or whatever other gundam series had.
<Jekichu-clone> laf, thats straight up pornographic
<Torgen> think of the ratings!
<Jekichu-clone> rawwwrrrr
<PyRC> basket, if everything is recursive, maybe there are no fansubs.
<Torgen> And Ensei doesn't sound like I expected him to when I first saw him...
<Torgen> He looks all gruff...
<Torgen> and he sounds so comical.
<arcImpulse> and you expected...
<Torgen> him to sound all gruff, like those assassins...
<Torgen> but he sounds uncultured;
<Torgen> not rogueish.
<Torgen> it's like, if he said "wanna come over and watch the game?" I'd take a moment to realize that was an anachronism.
<arcImpulse> if you think he sounds weird... just wait till we get to Eccentric Kou
<arcImpulse> and you'd be like...holy anachronism~~
<Torgen> what, does Kou sound like a robot or something?
<arcImpulse> damn, I couldn't fool you, ne?
