We’re back!!! And yes, the naming of this file is too long. XD

Today has been a horrible day for the anime/fansub community. Many talented creators, not just those whose names are known have no doubt been lost. I think that no matter what this looks like when it’s said and done, KyoAni will recover.
That being said, there are things you can do to help. Some have linked to a gofundme page started by Sentai Filmworks. While I trust that they won’t do anything unethical, a more direct route is wise.
1. Go here and select an image download to pay for:
2. Check the box and click the rectangle shown to add it to your cart.
3. Begin the checkout process after you added the amount you want to donate.
4. Fill out this info and click the button highlighted at the bottom.
5. Click next again.
6. Click again to continue to the final step.
7. Fill out this information.
8. Click this to finalize
Now you’re done. You’ve helped to keep a great animation studio alive and got a nice picture in return! The image arrives via email and you *may* need to ask your bank to allow international purchases. It depends on the card.
Hey guys. It’s been a while since the last update and Haru has finally gone through all the stuff we had. Most of the stuff we need at the moment has been recovered, thankfully.
SAO/STB will resume and other projects like UQ Holder are also being worked on, albeit slowly. Please be patient while we work to get something out for you guys :3
Update: We found a way to get the drive fixed, but our Patreon funds have run out. https://www.hdd-parts.com/16102831.html This place offers bios swaps for a new board, making it actually possible to just replace the PCB that has the connector on it. If you would like to help pay, please contact wellivea1 on Discord or donate to our Patreon (but that takes time).
Soon after moving the drives, I noticed that the drive was not being detected. I had assumed that I just forgot a connector or something, but the sata power connector looked like it had not slid on all the way. This was because the plastic under the pins had broken off from under it. I do not know how this could happen from moving it between PCs, but it recently went past its 2 yr warranty so a repair without spending $500+ would be impossible.
We have bought a replacement drive with the money we have gotten so far, but it quickly became clear that it was not possible to recover the data without replacing the connector. If any of you have any suggestions on how to get the drive powered up (that don’t involve buying a soldering iron), do let us know.
There seem to be options for drive repair that aren’t $1000 (although it’s not clear if they will replace a sata power connector), but there’s no more Patreon money left.
This does not mean we are 100% dead, it just means yet another setback in the world of setbacks and delays in fansubbing.
Haru is going to cobble together what he can from his PC and cloud links and there will be an update later. Thanks for all the support.
Hey guys, it’s been a while since we last released an ep of SAO. I just want to reiterate that the project *IS NOT* dead. There just have been a ton of delays because of other projects Haru gets pulled into (blame LightArrowsEXE for that) and then getting busy or sick at the worst times possible.
I think we’re finally at the point where we can start releasing more, but there are no guarantees as this is volunteer-based work. KNoW is currently the only person stalling, so if he finishes the one episode that had really heavy TS, we could release 7 or so episodes at once.
Please go bug him if there are any more delays >:3
Haru is back after an extended break from vacation
[Blame LightArrowsEXE for the delays…]. Alicization will be resuming soon. A special thanks to LightArrowsEXE, welli and ChromiumKnight for helping with the release.

A good show needs a good fansub to save it, right? So here we are. <3

Over the 2-3 years I’ve been here at Harunatsu, I’ve done everything I can to keep us going. Providing a server with XDCC, a seedbox, and an FTP with terabytes of storage for staff use.
Needless to say, I did not spend hundreds of dollars a month on dedicated remote servers for this, much of it has been on my own PC.
Most other groups either go to donations or find people with the money to provide servers, etc. The biggest issue was finding a method of payment that was reliable and I think we have found it (we tried paypal and that did not work out). Other groups like Chihiro and DDY have used this successfully to cover costs, so I hope we can as well.
There’s no pressure to donate but if you value our work and have the money to spare, it really would help no matter how small the contribution.
We plan to be 100% transparent in how the money is spent. The first order of business would be to order the UQ holder BDs (if we can get that much). After that, it would go to keeping up our site, and critical server hardware (that includes Haru’s poor PC ;_;). If you’ve read all this and still would like to donate, please go to our Patreon here:
If you would like to contribute in some other way (like providing BDs, etc) then just email us at [email protected]
