Well, first of all, thank you to all those who donated. We have enough to keep running until next season.
Usually when people accuse us being “shit” because we rip from Crunchyroll or Funimation or any streaming site for that matter, we keep our mouths shut and continue to do what we do. We believed that was the best policy because we wanted to focus all our efforts on working on whatever we have on our plates. The logistics of subtitling ~50 shows a week is pretty complex. Ever wondered why we don’t do song translations? That’s because we don’t have time to do them. Ever wondered why we’re not translating a show? That’s because no translator is interested in it.
Nonetheless, there’s a tipping point for everything. One of our translators quit last week because he didn’t see the point in translating for ungrateful people (I mean, it’s not like he gets paid). That’s why Seven Deadly Sins and Amagi have yet to be subbed. For the sake of everyone on the HorribleSubs’ team, we’d like you to know that we have absolutely nothing to do with Crunchyroll and Funimation. Unlike those sites, we don’t region lock and don’t discriminate. Everything we do is our own work.So, please, I urge you to keep all your bashing to yourself and let us work in peace to provide subtitles for everyone.
In case you didn’t understand the point of this post: we are a fansub group, not a Crunchyroll ripping group like Commie or whatever.
