Anbu gave up FMA - but we're not dead  
Quoting: "We will indeed stop fansubbing Fullmetal Alchemist if it truly is licensed. Now, I don't want you to create 234534 threads about how we are fuckers for not continuing it, I'm sure there will be PLENTY of vulture groups and fame hungry groups to pick it up and destroy the whole series with their shitty speed subbing. I won't say any names, but I have so many in mind...
Anyway, I already removed all the torrents from our tracker, enjoy."

And, I'm going to repeat myself again. We have lots of options here!
1) Hope some other group decides to keep going. Even Anbu thinks there'll be people to go on. (sonchou? other?)
2) Turn to a group based outside of USA that still do English subs and beg them very nicely to pick it up. (ie SPA)
3) Pick up subs in another language. (ie French)
4) In relation to 3, have people write down scripts from the subs in other languages for the people who only know English. (I'd help. I know French.)

It's OK people. We're going to get through, one way or another.

You know I think we should close our community sometime in September right before it airs in the U.S so we can keep only our Japanese version fans.

Why are the fans of the "English" version not good enough?

you could just add some rules such as "no net speak" ,etc., etc.

Dunno. It seems to work. And I don't know about most, but I tend to look at some threads of a new community to get a feel of the atmosphere and to see what'd be acceptable or not.

Hang on this was announced at E3? My brother is on his way there. He knows someone from Square Enix who got him in. If you guys want I can get him to e-mail me all information regarding this and I'll post it. Yes? No? Kill kimmycat?
ミランlinna on May 11th, 2004 01:34 am (UTC)
If he was there I say YES. I'm not all that trusting of that game site frankly because they don't seem to really care about getting details right.

Hmph. That high-and-mighty comment by ANBU got me a little miffed. >_< They sound so arrogant, thinking as if they're the only fansub group capable of doing a good job with FMA. -_-* Sure, fine, whatever. I for one won't be whining for their so-called superior subs and pandering to their egos anymore.
ミランlinna on May 11th, 2004 01:38 am (UTC)
True but you have to admit their releases ARE top notch. I only get my Naruto releases from them because of the quality.

[Then again I should talk since I switched getting Midori no Hibi from Seiichi because they do a better job <<;;;]

*sigh*
Yeah, I'm sure we'll still make it through somehow... but it doesn't make me like the situation any more than I already do (which is to say I hate it) >.<

Don't get me wrong, I'm kinda glad that it's been licensed (don't kill me yet) only because that means people who don't have the knowledge or access to d/l anime and such can finally get to see how great FMA is.

However, I do wish they waited till the series ended so WE could get some quality stuff! I dont want to wrongly assume that FMA will be badly dubbed/subbed, but trends just say it won't be done as well as it should/could be. It just seems like there is more effort by real anime fans who are doing this stuff for free and such rather than by people who are getting paid and supposedly have more expertise...

As for the closing of the community, I'm not sure where I stand on that as I'm sure there are a lot of real anime fans out there... but it seems too often that they're outnumbered by you know whos =P
Terraunmei_no_yume on May 11th, 2004 01:37 am (UTC)
oops
Sorry, I forgot to add that even if for some MIRACULOUS reason the dub or whatever turns out really well... I have no access to Cartoon Network should it really air. Not to mention it'll be edited like crazy... >.< Oh and I don't have the $$ to buy the dvds as I am a very poor college student...
ミランlinna on May 11th, 2004 01:40 am (UTC)
Re: oops
Me too. :D Which is why I'm all for another group doing an underground release of it. <<;;;

@.@
Ok... now after reading through all this stuff, it's safe to say I'm THOROUGHLY confused. Is it or is it NOT licensed?!?! If this is a joke - ok funny harhar, let's move on. If not, then, Damnit!... but regardless, as long as SOMEONE subs it decently (as in, better than American companies) and I don't have to pay for it, then I will be satisfied... I think. =P
ミランlinna on May 11th, 2004 02:28 am (UTC)
Re: @.@
The best thing we can do is to wait and see. There'll probably be more concrete news within the next couple of days. If this is a joke by Anbu then it's pretty mean.
