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
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]
Please join us to speed things up.
Encoding : Haru
Hey guys, now that Nyaa is down, there’s three ways you can get our releases: TokyoTosho, Anidex, and XDCC. Lets hope the community coalesces around a site (hopefully not only posting at one though) without splitting into factions!
Edit: alkalinemoe and wellivea1.
Everything else: Haru.

Here’s a raw for Tokyo Jihen’s final concert BD: Bon Voyage. It’s an amazing concert if you ask me, and a true loss for the music world:( I encoded it to CRF 20 with -veryslow with some minimal filtering (gsmc and QTGMC) so it’s the best encode of it out there right now.
By the way, my new tag is [welli] with a channel at #wellisubs. There should be a few actual sub releases at some point.
Julis, the best girl.
