Yoake Mae Yori Ruri Iro na ~Crescent Love~ Episodes 10, 11 and 12 (END), and the end of something else.

So, it has all finally come to an end.

To be honest, this is easily one of the toughest projects I've taken up so far, but I did have plenty of good fun doing it. The anime series, as a whole, is pretty good. It could have turned into something like Happiness (Which had one hell of a strange ending), but thankfully, it turned out pretty nicely after all. Moreover, the storyline of this anime is not one which quite a few stupid animes use, where the guy takes the entire season to discover that he likes a girl.

If it isn't for all the graphical defects, this could have been an excellent anime. Even then, it is still a very very good watch.

However, with the end of this project, I must also announce the end of this team.

I simply do not have the time required to do such work week in, week out. It is very much enjoyable, but unfortunately, I'm pretty much doing everything myself.

The reason for that?

Well, let's just say I messed up real bad somewhere along the way, and ended up flying solo. I was a real moron back then, and if you are reading this, I would like repeat the word "sorry" once again.

Still, I am rather proud and, at many times, astounded with the progress of this team to date. It was a team which was formed to do 2 Otome episodes after I fell in love with Mai, disbanded, reformed after disagreements, and well... this is where it is today.

After CarrierZ left, I found the burden of leading the team suddenly dumped on my shoulders. However, I never truely found it annoying, but instead found it very enjoyable. By building the team around the simple idea of "Get it done, I don't care how.", a very enjoyable environment was created for every member. By not truly giving a damn about how a stupid sign rotates and fades, what I've been doing, was pure joy to me.

Along the way, many people pitched in their skills to help. To all these people, from those who helped with my translation work, to the distro dudes, right down to the random IRC idler who gave me pointers when I needed them (Renaming the cities in one of the Utawarerumono episodes is one such example XD), I thank you. None of this could have been the same if it wasn't for your help. If there is anything I can help with, please do NOT hesitate to ask. I will be more than happy to help if I am able to.

As to the team, namely those who with whom I've fought together with (Chysil, Alok, ArcticWolf, Seish, Robocrop, Shak, Leha) Thank you for making this a wonderful experience. It was enjoyable, stressful, demanding, but overall, fun. I must also thank all our distros, who would otherwise have made our work close to impossible if it wasn't for you peeps.

Finally, I must thank CarrierZ for coming to me on MSN saying "LET"S DO OTOME! LOLOL" (or something), allowing me to start this extremely memorable journey.

Lastly, to all the fans who has supported us all the way, thank you. None of this would have happened without your continuous support, despite all our mess ups here and there. Once again, thank you.

So, what am I going to do to this site?

Moreover, what am I going to do now?

Who knows?

I am very sorry to hear of the demise of this fine project. More and more I have come to rely upon your fine selection of fansubs to guide me in my choices in anime viewing. With each new project another fine anime which I may have otherwise ignorant of and much poorer for it. Specifically I'd like to thankyou for you distribution of School Rumble, a program that changed anime for me from mild amusement, to something more akin to an addiction. All throughout its distribution I’d have sworn that I'd not have made it to the end of the week without it. As much as your departure pains me, I cannot be bitter, as you've as given me so much these past year, so once again thankyou and I wish you the best of luck with all your future endeavours.

Hey guys!

Carrierz here.

I just wanted to tell you we're not just done yet! We'll pick up Shuffle! Memories! as our final project. In addition, we might also pick up another "secret" project, and we do also discuss about the new season of Ikkitousen.

Look forward to it, and expect the things you want to see; Fast subs with more or less quality!

We hope that you are going to enjoy them as much as we do, good luck everyone!

Twisting the knife further...

NightFalcon, i've always said you where very, very, talented with your writing, i remember a millenia ago i was bored in the irc channel, chatting to you.

But as we all know, times must change. Your-Mom Fansubs, Your time with us on this planet was short lived, and the way it was ended was... painful. I hope to see buds of your work carry onto the next generation, and this time maybe the new life will be immune to frailties and such.

I thank-you for all you have done for the world, Your-Mom Fansubs, Rest in Peace.

I graciously twist the knife, until the buds of the flowers bloom.

Your's Faithfully,
Darksilence.
