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.
This group has been growing a lot lately, and with that has come a lot of opportunity for more projects (many of which are on their way). But running all of the tasks needed to run a fansub group (hosting, encoding, etc) on our own personal computers gets to be extremely cumbersome and unrealistic. Knowing that we needed a way to solve this, we looked at other groups, this lead us to the idea of setting up a way for you guys to help. All you have to do is click one of the green flattr buttons on the site, and sign up there. We were honestly pretty skeptical of whether or not there’s people out there that care enough about fansubs for this to work, but we’ll do our best to believe in the community! Please ask as many questions as you like about how the donations would be used, etc in the comments if you have reservations.
If you’d like to donate another way, like paypal, then email us at [email protected].

We have finally migrated to WordPress after a long time of being stuck with Blogger! This means that it will be much easier for us to manage the site, and a drop in headaches due to Blogger’s strange quirks. Please let us know what you think, and ways we can improve!
The old site will remain alive under harunatsu-fansubs.blogspot.com for at least a little while. It was crappy and tolerable while it lasted, o’ site of our past.
