Bakuman – 24

Here it is, ladies and gentlemen.  One more episode to go this season!

For the Love of Anime,


Bakuman – 23

Finally!  After a week’s break for some really tragic circumstances, Bakuman is back on the air, and we’re here to sub it!

Due to a some feedback we received recently, font is a little higher and a little bigger this week.  It is extremely unlikely that we will change it again, and the end of season batch torrent will have all episodes with this style.

For everyone affected by the tragedy in Japan,


PS: All of you who posted in the previous comment about Musou_Mitai subbing during a 6.1 aftershock, thank you so much!  You guys are what makes it worth it to spend ridiculous amounts of time on this every week :D.

PPS: Musou_Mitai is tired of straining his ears to hear people talking over music, and his TV card doesn’t work with Japanese TV and an American version of Windows, so if anybody is interested in supplying us with a raw that has CC, toss us an email.

Bakuman 23 Airing Now

Phew.  Musou_Mitai is watching now, translation is in progress and this week’s episode should be out with our usual efficiency, provided Musou_Mitai doesn’t lose time to one of those annoying scheduled blackouts that have been going on in Tokyo since the earthquake.

UPDATE: They just had a 6.1 in Ibaraki, NE of Tokyo.  Musou_Mitai, the dedicated motherfucker he is, worked right through the stuff rattling around his apartment.

Update on Broadcast Schedules

Divine over at Random Curiosity has put together a list of the status of various shows this season that I found quite useful, you can find it here.

Musou_Mitai Update

Greetings from a confused Tokyo. I know a lot of you out there are probably disappointed that anime has basically stopped for the last few days, but I’m sure you can find something else to do to fill your time while we wait (hint: try reading a book).

I realized I’ve been having Obsidian_TK do all the updates lately, so I figured I should make a post about my situation.

Bakuman 23 Air Time Changed to… Sometime.

Official word from NHK is that Bakuman 23 has been delayed (obviously), and that they will announce the new air time on their blag at some point in the future.  We’ll keep you up to date.

Musou_Mitai Quaked!

As many of you probly know, there was a massive earthquake and tsunami in The Land of Anime today, so things are pretty crazy.  Musou_Mitai teaches English at a school in Tokyo, and he’s still stuck there since the trains aren’t running at the moment (at the time of writing this post, it’s about 9:30 PM over there).  He’ll certainly be able to get home sometime tonight or tomorrow, but we’re both worried that the airing of anime may be delayed by the crazy shaking ground.

Hopefully Bakuman will be on schedule, and if it is, we’ll be translating it in our usual timely fashion, but if there are any TV schedule changes, we’ll keep you up to date!

UPDATE x2: Episode should have started 10 minutes ago, but all the channels are showing a speech about the state of the nuclear power plants in Fukushima.  Still nothing on the official wobsite regarding a new air time, but I guess we should be more worried about peoples’ lives T_T;;

For manga readers, Musou_Mitai is crying like Hiramaru: “I get a weekend to reeeeeeest!”
