It has been a while…

Hi everyone! It has been a while since we’ve posted anything on the website. All of us here at CPP have been busy with various things so far this year. I know our release frequency is still very slow and sporadic, but it really can’t be helped. We have been slowly chipping away at some new releases and hope to get them out ASAP. When will that be? I really can’t say or guarantee anything. I personally have been busy trying to change jobs in the past few months or so, so that has been preoccupying my very limited spare time lately. The other staff members have been busy with different things as well. I did find a new job, however, so hopefully that means I’ll be more happy and motivated, which means more fansubbing progress. Starting next week, I’m going to be taking a week and a half or two week vacation before I start at my new job, so hopefully I can catch up on my fansubbing backlog. How much that actually will be, we’ll just have to wait and see. Anyway, I’d just like to say sorry for the continued slowness of our group to our fans and thank you for waiting patiently for our releases and sticking with us. I’m hoping we can speed up our releases in the second half of the year.

Oh yeah, before I forget. I know this is going to be a longshot, but it never hurts to try. If any of you out there, whether you’re just a fan or a current or former fansubber, we could definitely use some extra help within the group. Our most pressing need right now is another editor, but will consider other positions, if we find the right candidates. So if any of you are interested or want to find out more information, feel free to send us an email at considerphlebasproductions@gmail.com , head on over to our IRC channel on Rizon: irc://irc.rizon.net/CPP or come on over to our Discord server: https://discord.gg/V2bY2MK . Contacting us on Discord will get you the quickest response. Messages and inquires via IRC and email will be checked eventually, but may be slower than Discord, so please be aware of that. Well, that about wraps it up. Hope to hear from you soon!

CP Day 2020

As some of you may remember, CP’s birthday was Christmas Eve so it’s only fitting that we release some more fairy tales to mark the day. It doesn’t feel like 5 years since we lost our friend CP but we hope to continue honoring his memory with more releases in the years to come. And there may be some surprise new projects on the way in 2021 too, so watch this space!

Latest Update About Our Group’s Current Status

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of releases and updates as of late. We were originally planning to try and release something on September 8th (CP Memorial Day), but alas, this crazy year threw another wrench into the machinery. I got really busy with work, so I went on another one of my infamous MIA stints. I work at an “essential business”, so this pandemic has been very busy and quite rough for me this year. Well, it has been weird, rough, crazy, and etc for all of us. Anyway, we’re not dead or anything. Things are just moving along VERY slowly. Hopefully, this will change in the near future.

Anyway, we hope to be able to release something on December 24th, which you all may remember, is CP’s birthday. I figure since we missed out on his memorial day, it would be a shame if we missed releasing something in honor of his birthday. Of course, with all the craziness that has been going on this year, we can’t guarantee anything, but will try extra had to make a release possible on that day/occasion. Hopefully, things will go much smoother for our group next year. Only time will tell, I guess.

Well, that about sums up our group’s current situation. Again, sorry about the lack of releases and updates. Thank you for being patient with us. We look forward to releasing more rare (and maybe not so rare) stuff for all of you to enjoy in the near future. Feel free to leave a comment on the website or contact us on IRC or by email, if you want to. Oh yeah, and if there are any experienced subbers out there that are interested in helping us out, please do feel free to get in touch with us. I know this is a long shot, but extra help never hurts. We especially could use some more QC help, but will hear out offers to help out in other areas/tasks as well.

TenkenX6’s Birthday Treat

Back through the mists of time, when the world was still forming, a legend was born. Little did he know that, one day, many moons later, he would save the world… from unsubbed anime! Yes, our “mysterious” translator/group founder turns another year older today, and what better way to mark the occasion than releasing some more episodes of our current project? Well, throwing him a party and making him a three-tiered cake maybe, but this was the next best thing.

In this latest volume of fairy tales, we present: an emperor with some odd ideas about fashion; two bear cubs who find out that the glass isn’t always, uh, cleaner on the other side, a cautionary tale about beans, beans, the musical fruit; and the annual Whacking Day celebration.

Enjoy!

Happy New Year! Hello there, 2020…

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a great and safe holiday season with friends and family. I spent some quality time with my family, but I also had to work, but that’s just life, huh? Anyway, a new year means (hopefully) much more fansub releases by us. Of course, that will all depend on what happens in each one of our members lives offline AKA real life. I’m really confident that we’ll release more stuff than last year. It’s very likely that we’ll pick up some new projects to work on throughout the year. What those potential projects will be? I’m not quite sure yet. Whatever interests us and catches our attention.

I hate to say this, but I’ll probably go on at least one of my (in)famous MIA stints some time during the year. It pains me to have to take a long leave from subbing, but alas, real life is just like that. But while I’m active, I’ll do my best to translate and/or do translation checks on as much stuff as I can. Well, that’s what I always shoot for, so there’s nothing different in that department. Just like last year, I’ll also sometimes be helping out Collectr at Orphan Fansubs and Saizen Fansubs. Plus, I’ll probably be helping out some other groups, like Soldado-Subs and Yabai Fansubs as well. Oh yeah, last month, I agreed to help out Honobono Fansubs, so if you follow or check their stuff out, I’ll be helping them finish up Goldfish Warning and whatever else projects I agree to help out on afterwords. I’ve been subbing for quite a while now (my 14th year this year), so I know quite a few subbers and am always willing to help out fellow old school anime subbing groups or subbers still active and around (which is not very much). I’m not trying to claim in the slightest that I’m an “elite tier” or whatever subber, but since I’ve been around for a while, I have a fair amount of connections. I’ve always flew under the radar, so I’m still kind of an unknown in the whole fansubbing scene in general. I have always preferred to be the “mysterious subber”, whom doesn’t step into the limelight much at all.

Anyhoo, this is the general overview of our group’s goals for 2020. We hope to exceed them, but only time will tell. I know we’re not popular or that well-known, but to all the people who watch and wait for our releases, thank you very much. I hope you enjoy our work and that it brings you all joy, because that’s one of our goals as a fansub group. Well, take it easy, everyone.

CP’s Birthday Release Extravaganza!

We’ve got some treats for all of you in honor of CP on his birthday. We failed to release anything on CP Memorial Day (Sept. 8th) this year, so it was an absolute must for us to release something on his birthday, which also happens to be Christmas Eve. Anyway, on to what we’re releasing today:

Our first release is the start of a new project: Fairy Tales From Around The World. Originally aired in Japan from 1976 to 1979 under the title Manga Sekai Mukashibanashi, this mammoth collection of fairy tales boasts fables and folklore from all around the world, from childhood favourites we all remember (like The Little Mermaid pictured) to others that aren’t so widely known.

The numbering for this series is a little weird — we’ve decided to number the tales individually, but they originally aired as double features; part of our reason for doing this is because there are some re-airs of previous tales later on into the series. So we figured releasing the episodes as they are on the DVDs is the way to go, which means 4 episodes per volume.

For our second (and final release), we present an extended DVD version of Keifuku-san. We already released the shorter, web version of the same title back in January 2018. This extended version has a short bonus scene at the end. You’re probably wondering, “Why even bother if it’s just a short bonus scene?” Well, for one thing, the DVD version’s video quality is better than the web version. Plus, we’re all pretty fond of this nice, soothing little anime short, so why not?

Well, that’s about it. Hope you all enjoy these releases which you can grab below. Oh, and make sure to visit our friends over at Saizen and Live-eviL who will also be releasing some things to celebrate CP’s birthday.

We’re (I’m) Still Alive…

Sorry for the lack of releases/updates/posts lately. It’s mostly my fault because I have been MIA due to IRL issues for 4 or 5 months. Anyway, we’re not dead and are still alive. Hopefully, we can get caught up and release some stuff in the near future. Can’t really give an ETA for anything right now, since I have just returned from my MIA stint and am easing my way back into subbing. The group has to catch up on stuff and etc, as well. Nothing has been dropped (aside from the Natsume Yuujinchou movie, since it has been licensed and released by Aniplex USA) so rest assured.

KyoAni Tragedy

I’m sure a lot of you anime fans out there has heard about the tragic and senseless act of arson on the KyoAni (Kyoto Animation) studio on Thursday, July 18th by now. To say I was shocked and saddened when learning about this is a huge understatement. Upon hearing about it, I was immediately filled with so many different emotions at once. I just can’t believe how anyone could be so evil and uncaring to commit such a heinous crime. This once again proves that there are “true demons” in this world. I’m still in a mixed state of emotions over this whole incident and am not sure how long it will be until I can sort out all my feelings. TBH, I haven’t felt “normal” ever since hearing/finding out about this. I don’t want to sound like some kind of depressed and negative bastard, but a little bit more of my faith in humanity has once again been lost after learning of this tragedy.

Anyway, I’ve seen a fair share of great anime created by KyoAni throughout the years. Some of my favorite works by them are: Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, Clannad/Clannad: After Story, Miss Kobayashi’s Maid Dragon, A Silent Voice, The Melancoly of Haruhi Suzumiya, Amagi Brilliant Park, AIR, and Violet Evergarden. Thank you KyoAni for bringing me and countless others lots of joy and great entertainment throughout the years. It greatly saddens me that a so many talented individuals have been affected by this tragedy. I’m hoping and praying for their swift recovery. Things will never be the same for everyone involved, but I know they’ll pull through in the end. My most heartfelt condolences goes out to all the families and friends of all the KyoAni employees affected. Ganbatte! Faito KyoAni!

Oh, BTW, if you want to help out KyoAni in some way or another, you can go here: Help KyoAni Heal and make a donation or post a message of encouragement and thanks to them. I already made a donation and plan to make some more when I can. So please if you can spare any amount of money, please make a donation at that GoFundMe project in the above link. It goes without saying, but it’s for a very, very worthy cause. Thanks in advance! 🙂

Capricorn

And here’s our first release as an official group! Capricorn is a feature-length OVA originally released in the early 90s, sporting the aesthetic of that pre-CGI era of anime. Our hero, Taku, finds himself whisked away from Earth and deposited on a strange world called Slaffleaze, populated by anthropomorphized animals and strange creatures. Oh, and dragons. Lots and lots of dragons. This is a troubling time for Slaffleaze, however, with the appearance of Capricorn in the sky serving as a bad omen of what’s to come. Can Taku find a way to save Slaffleaze and return to Earth? And just who is the winged girl he keeps running into?

If you’re a fan of isekai or fantasy in general, this might be for you. Admittedly, it’s not all that cerebral, but it’s a fun little romp through a fantasy world, with a side dose of political intrigue and subterfuge. Also, there are dragons and who doesn’t like dragons?

WARNING: If you suffer from any condition that gets triggered by flashing lights, you might want to give this one a miss, because it gets a bit flashy towards the end.
