Kaguya-sama: Love is War S3 – Episode 04

After much suffering with flower puns and references to Japanese folktales, episode 04 is finally done.
If you don’t know what the swallow’s cowry shell stuff is about, I recommend reading up on the Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War S3 – Episode 03

I’d say we’re somewhat back on track, but episode 4 might still take a while…

I think this episode is the best episode this season so far. And Maki’s cute.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War S3 – Episode 01

Pictured: the faces of all GJM Kaguya staff when we saw how much typesetting there was in episode 1 despite being prepared for a typesetting hell.

So this took much, much longer than we expected, but a lot of it was also scheduling issues. The good news is that episode 2 is almost ready (I’ve been told the remaining few signs should be done by Sunday). Since we have so many typesetters on the project (4 on episode 1, 6 on episode 2) we were able to split the work in such a way that both episodes were being typeset at the same time, which should allow us to maybe catch up if episode 3 has less signs (please, God, Buddha, Myne, give us a break!).

In the meantime, enjoy episode 1!

Good Job! Media – Spring 2022

With Spring 2022 just around the corner, it’s finally time to announce our planned shows.

Those who paid attention to our Discord or read recent release posts carefully already knew what our spring shows were going to be. And those who didn’t… well, I’m sure they suspected it would be these.

It is truly a shame that not just two, but three GJM shows are getting sequels all in the same season. Not only that, but also each of these three shows were translated by me, Areki. Yes, those three shows are Kaguya-sama: Love is War S3, Ascendance of a Bookworm S3, and Heroine Tarumono. Unfortunately, it’d be downright unreasonable to have one fansubber translate three shows in one season (and the perfect recipe for stalling them), which is why we decided to pick up only two of them, the heavily anticipated ones: Kaguya and Bookworm.

This doesn’t mean, though, that the HoneyWorks show is completely off the table. Once we finish these spring shows and our backlog grows smaller, we might consider a release of both Heroine and the short series we also previously skipped due to overlap with other projects: Itsudatte Bokura no Koi wa 10 cm Datta.

And here’s more good news, since I know what everyone is thinking. “But you’re gonna take years to finish Kaguya again!” We have assembled a completely new typesetting team, improved our project management, and made plans on how to allocate the workload between them to ensure that there’s as little delay caused by typesetting as possible. Other than that, the staff stays mostly the same—you’ll be able to enjoy subtitles by the same translators and editors as in the previous seasons.

We hope you’re looking forward to these shows as much as we are, and thank you for choosing GJM!

Kaguya-sama: Love is War S2 – Episode 12

Finally, now is the moment everyone has been waiting for. Believe me, as much as all of you were frustrated waiting for the last episode, I don’t think anyone was as frustrated as us staff. I translated this episode ages ago, and really wanted to finally get it out, but, you know, sometimes things just don’t go as planned.

With the last episode out of the way (and the PV episode following most likely tomorrow), we’re preparing for S3. We’ll be officially announcing our Spring 2022 plans very soon, but I can already tell you that we’ve got a completely new set of typesetters (really good typesetters who you might recognize from some of our other projects, like Aquatope) to ensure that nothing goes wrong during S3. While we obviously can’t guarantee that we’ll get through Season 3 with no unforeseen delays, we’re doing everything we can to ensure that the S2 situation doesn’t repeat itself.

Huge thanks to everyone who actually waited for us, and apologies for the really long wait. Please look forward to Season 3!

Kaguya-sama: Love is War S2 OVA (DVD)

At long last, the OVA is complete. Huge thanks to Medex for taking the reins on this show’s remaining typesetting content.

With that said though, we’d like to apologize for the delays surrounding this OVA’s, S2 Ep12’s, and the S3 PV’s respective releases. We had initially planned, on guidance from iFanz around his impending (at the time of asking) availability, to wait for him to return “soon” with his basically-complete work and wrap these up. As we can all tell, that never materialized. In light of that, freeing up one of our TSers from other projects allowed them to do the work over themselves and finally progress the projects toward their eventual completion.

With the OVA done, Medex is now working on Episode 12’s typesetting, and once THAT is done, he’ll do the S3 PV. We hope to be done with both of those over the coming few weeks, with time to spare before S3 starts. When S3 airs, we’ll be assigning several typesetters to the project with the goal of maintaining a weekly (and if not, reasonably consistent) schedule for the whole show this time.

Anyways, that’s all to be said on the topic of Kaguya for now. Thanks to everyone who has patiently waited through this disaster for these episodes to finally see the light of day. We look forward to experiencing S3 with all of you.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War S2 – Episode 11

Did we say three months per episode? We meant three weeks(-ish?).

Just one more episode left now, and at long last, the series will be complete, at least until a date for season 3 is announced.

As previously mentioned, yes, we’re doing the OVA once we can get access to a proper rip of the DVD it comes on. Kaguya S2 12 might not be done before the OVA starts being worked on, but will be focused on once the OVA work is completed.

Look forward to them both!

Check out our regular schedule. Three months per episode!

…It uh, shouldn’t stay like that, don’t worry.

In other news, yes, we’ll do the OVA once it releases and once we can get a proper source to encode and translate from. Look forward to it!
