Some mornings, you just don't want to wake up.

Just like this morning. I just didn't want to wake up, but I had to.

And I woke up, to this:

Ahh...

Wonderful...

No, I'm not going to justify our "actions" and our "errors". We've done that so many times in the past, but it never seem to work anyway. Hell, if people can complain about Eclipse's typesetting, they'll complain about everything and anything.

However, thank you to those who still support us. We aren't the best out there, and we know that. We make mistakes, and we do know that too.

You are the ones who keep us (Or at least, me) going. We don't do this for glory. There are many other stages where we can go to get glory (Beijing 2008! Woo hoo).

We do this for fun.

And thank you for keeping this fun.

Man. What they said is absolutely terrible. Not only are your subs great but they are done quickly. You give us free stuff, we don't have a right to complain because its free. If someone does, then they should be shot, free subs are better than none. THANK YOU SO MUCH YOUR MOM!!!! Really, because of you I've been able to follow my favorite shows!

you guys rock no matter what anybody says. most of the people saying things like "I can't act, but I have a right to complain when an actor sucks" are only repeating what they read somewhere on a forum. Those people can just wait for a show to become licensed and buy it. Then, after they've paid money they can complain all they want.

Keep up the good work guys.

P.S.
I hope you find a new encoder. It it weren't for 2 of the qualifications I would apply myself (although the most important one is the large pipe which I definitely DON'T have).

Whether or not this gets posted as a comment or not is no concern of mine. I just figured I'd put in my two cents of what I thought.

I may not know much about subbing anime or any of that but just because I don't know much about it and enjoy fansubs, doesn't mean I can't say I like what you guys do just because some other dimwit says otherwise for the same reason.
I enjoy watching the work you guys do, because you guys are doing stuff that not everyone else can do.

Really the only big difference is that you guys are actually doing the fansubbing. When in general, we're all just fans that enjoy anime. You guys say you're having fun, so I would assume you guys enjoy anime as well, but you guys are also sharing that with everyone else who can't subtitle or understand japanese.

I believe you guys are doing an awesome job and that I'd choose your works over someone else's in a heartbeat. Because I respect and love what you guys are doing. Whether or not the quality is higher or not has nothing to do with why you guys are doing it. You guys do it for fun and in the process are helping a lot of other people enjoy it as well.

No amount of thanks could amount to how much time I've spent laughing or smiling because of some of the things you guys do on your own time for fun.
Keep up the good work, and I support you guys all the way both as a fan of the work you guys do, and a person who enjoys anime.

I dont get why these people are complaining. Its not like theyre paying you guys to sub anime for them. Besides, if it werent for you guys, i wouldnt have been able to watch SR2 or the last few eps of Utawarerumono.

Nah it was funny... I googled your-mom + anime or something, and got all this your-mom hate. Made for a good hour of reading.

For the record, I've been watching YM since early SR1, and even though I might not be a perfectionist or obsessed with detail, I've never noticed anything wrong with your subs besides the occasional misspelling. I'm not quite sure why people think that even matters, just correct it in your head and move on. Furthermore, you guys get ep's out on time and with IMO good quality. So here's 3 cheers to Your-mom fansubs from one truly pleased fan.

Sloppiest?! I'd say by far the subs you lads produce are some of the best. No sub group is perfect. It’s got to the point where people are starting to become jealous of the fame you lads have achieved so they've become rather picky about every little error or mistake that pops up.

All I say is keep up the good work lads. You’re doing a brilliant job.

Wow, really? so much hate eh.
Personally, I don't see what all the fuss is about.
I mean sure i've only gotten into anime in the last year or so but i've accumulated upwards of 180GBs of anime, some of which are subbed by YM.
I see the "slight" difference in quality, but if it makes sense and is subbed quickly what else matters???
"Why wait for the release when u can use the beta?"

hey guys first of all, you all do a great job. thanks for putting out utawarerumono and blood+, i and tons of others wouldnt have been able to see the whole series if it werent for you guys. so all the retards who complain can go watch transvestite pr0n. anyhoo, dont worry about the complaints because im sure youve got lots of people besides myself who appreciate what you do.

with that being said, i know you said you were going to put out a 320 kbps version of the ending song of utawarerumono, but i was wondering if you were going to put it on your site or on mIRC (which for some reason wont work on my comp). also, could you perhaps give the title of the song? i cant find too much info on it on google. thanks a lot and thanks for the good work.

I really appreciate the releases you have done for School Rumble 2nd and Tsuyokiss. Rarely is there something in the subs that I don't understand, the video quality is good, the quick releases are a real plus and I haven't felt like there was much dialog that wasn't translated. I'm not sure what other people are bitching about (perhaps there are some examples where things weren't so good?). Regardless, thanks again for your efforts! If it wasn't for you guys, Tsuyokiss would still be lagging at 3 episodes translated.

I recently bought an official DVD of an anime and got a taste of what a bad translation really is. The English is so bad that often I can't understand what was said and it often ruins the mood. I did get a good laugh though out of the translation: "My mom would hit me in my ass" for the act of "spanking". And no, its not a Hentai :)

What I do not understand is why they keep complaining? Does it accomplish anything other than getting their feelings out, just as I am posting now?

A Fansub is not a piece of work like a corporate movie The Hulk or whatever the poster used as evidence. He doesn't have to watch it either if he doesn't like it.

Why do people who complained once about YM's work go ahead and watch the next ones only to complain more? The majority of people complaining are almost definitely all under the legal age and think they love anime, where all they really love is a few series.

Taking Japanese in university makes me really appreciate the jobs that ARE done and it doesn't matter if it looks pretty. The only real reason fansubs exist is so people who cannot speak it can enjoy the series.

I choose to ignore most of the flames against fansubbing groups, as, by and large, they are made by uneducated little white children, seeking a more aesthetically pleasing video.

Please don't be surprised if a fansubbing group comes out in the next year with the title "Fuck You" fansubs. I'm gonna do it just to piss them off. Catchphrase- don't like it? Don't watch it.

Offer bread to the hungry and they will ask for butter. Give water to thirsty and they will want wine.
As long as there is something good, someone will find something to complain about it.

Point being, you can never satisfy everyone. Why bother? As long as youre happy with your work it should be good enough for everyone else too.
Its not like no-one forces you to do it.

Or something like that.
(I havent found anything to complain about in YM subs so far)

Hey, It might not come for much, but hey I love you guys. I came to you guys for a lot of my anime's in the past, utawarerumono, school rumble, and blood+ just to name a few. Just keep on what you guys are doing, you do have fans out there, and we appreciate that you do take your time to sub anime, cause this one loves his anime. =p

To be honest, I don't even notice the the 'chunks of dialogue' missing.

I wonder if that means I watch too much anime and I've learned japanese by submersion?

--Random fan, just wanting to thank you for school rumble. :)

I don't care what anyone says.. you guys are the best in my opinion... Sure there are mistakes made but you guys take time out of your lives to bring these subs to us. That is why I only download your subs even if other groups have the same anime.. All I need is to understand the anime and not get hipnotized by fancy kareokee effects or see nano second timings.. All I want to do is watch anime and you huys deliver that.
