I'm pretty new to this stuff, but does this mean you won't sub Karin anymore?

Torgen said...

No, it just means that episode 9 won't air until January 5th.

Anonymous said...

That's bad enough!

Darn that sucks i enjoy this anime to much

Anonymous said...

I wonder what pre-empted it? It will be worth the wait though.

Torgen said...

Apparently they're showing some movies instead.

Nerji said...

Not sure if this has been asked before because I'm lazy, but are you going to make a karin theme for your website?

Torgen said...

I don't know if I'll make one necessarily, but if someone else makes one (using the existing CSS as a template) and sends it to me and I like it, I could put that one up.

it's the 5th January today, but Karin 9, but it isn't on the page?

Sorry, i was a little busy!^

can't wait

Torgen said...

It finished airing about an hour ago. Give it a little time.

Anonymous said...

By when will it be ready?

Kyo"shirou" said...

Give the good man some time ^^

Tsunehiko said...

Good gracious. To torgen and the rest of the "We suck" team, the comments of certain people who attempt to rush you does not represent what the rest of us fans think. (E.g. Whoever is posting as 'anonymous' --> Have some patience, honestly)

You guys are great on effeciency and quality and I just wanted to post my thanks for that and express my irritation against those who have no patience or appreciation for your work.

Anonymous said...

At least they weren't asking for it
before it was aired. heh.

Thanks again for all you do.

Some of you people just don't understand how much work goes into preparing an episode for the leechers. It will be done when it is done. You should thank We Suck for keeping you guys up to date on when the next episode would be airing, and in the future keep in mind that it is a free service they are providing and that they are not bound by your impatience.

Kyo"shirou" said...

Don't look on me, Torgen can use the time he wants too finish it. ^^

where would i be able to download them, i got 1/8 but im just curious where to download one when it comes out o_o;; if this looks way too n00b, sorry for that, anyways, great job on the subbing etc all!

Kyo"shirou" said...

Take a look under the Link section. It stands somethin like "We Sucks Bittorrents"

Hope I've been helpfull ^^

Signe said...

I'm one of the people above, who could maybe have said something unnecessary. Sorry! You are making a great job and i appreciate it, a lot.
I just thought that "aired" meant that it would be able to download, on this page. I was wrong.
Take the time you need and make it a very good anime!
Bye from here!

Speaking of preemptions/delayed...sadly, two more will be in the pipeline.

January 19 - Karin ep. 11 will be delayed due to WOWOW airing the 2006 Australian Open of Tennis. Ep. 11 will air on January 26.

February 9 - Karin ep. 13 will be delayed due to WOWOW airing the 2006 Grammy Awards. Ep. 13 will air on February 16.

it seems like every anime series that I'm watching is being preempted by something lately.

Ian said...

Lol @ confusion on why it was pre-empted. Last week was the week of New Years.

Anonymous said...

i enjoy the show alot and i will say great work and one more thing the "unhappiness" that karin attacted to ( i think it should be misfortune )

Ian said...

that would totally change the plot if she could suck misfortune out of people

Anonymous said...

well she doesn't "suck" blood from ppl she put blood in ppl remember??

Anonymous said...

and one more thing i have seen the manga and it's translate as misfortune not unhappiness ( it also mean unlucky )

Anonymous said...

if it was misfurtune then dear momy whould have got a jub long ago^^

misfortune may equal to unlucky which will mean no luck in finding jobs

Anonymous said...

But she been given a luky blood so she should find job easly.

toshihiko said...

i will say unluck + lucky = normal so that is why she still can't find any jobs

Ian said...

Unhappyness is certainly the correct translation. I don't know Japanese, but just from the context of the anime. With the mom's blood transfusion she became happy, but with the same bad luck. :)

Heh, I guess Karin must be a universal donor, type O-. I hope Karin saves like the vampire hunters life with a blood transfusion, the irony would be so thick.

Torgen said...

I wouldn't mind if she let Winner die, but I guess I have different priorities than she does.

Anonymous said...

I've thought about this further: until Usui's home life
stabilizes he will not be truly happy. Food and shelter
are just two basics. He feels some guilt in Karin
making lunches for him yet also feels pressure
for having to deal with his mother and Karin's
issues. Then Winner's constant duels makes the
pressure a bit worse. Add school and work pressure
and we might have the most unfortunate character
in anime (saving except the protagonist of "If I See
You In My Dreams").

He's going to melt down eventually. There's only
a few things I can see fixing it but we'll see what
happens.

toshihiko said...

well nvm with the translation so long i can understand 90% of it
seem like the manga and the anime will be quite different ( read vol 3 just vol 3 ) quite afew things happen in between the entry winner ( maybe it will be shown later on in the anime, it doesn't really link to the main story and it can add in anytime )

Ian said...

I also wouldn't mind if she let Winner die, it would just be a funny scene if she saved him.

Another thing, vampires are rich in most fantasy worlds... they at least have a huge ass house in this one. Why can't they set the mom up with a job. Other then the fact that it would totally mess up the story. :P

Freestyle Walker said...

Did anyone notice that Winner and the boy getting bit in the beginning of first episode look very similar... Plus the fact that in Winner's "flashback" dream sequence and Karin's "Opening" dream sequence in the first episode have about the same location (A lake or pond) and are both completely bathed in red.

Signe said...

To Freestyle Walker:
Yes, you're saying something...
I didn't notice it, before you said it.
The boy in front of the lake/sea/whatever, in the opening... He must be Winner-kun!

Anonymous said...

I also think that the boy in the opening sequence
is winner-kun. His malformed memory of her
somehow coming around to attract him to her.
Watching her run away from him is amusing in
many ways. But I wouldn't want to see ren get
angry seeing this, heh.

<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> gundam....cat 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?
