Okay, we’ve got our suit of armor on, we’ve got our game faces on… Looks like it’s release time!
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!
[CPP] Fairy Tales From Around The World (Manga Sekai Mukashibanashi) – Volume 03
md5 = N/A
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.
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.

As a group set up to honor his memory, it would be remiss of us not to mark the birthday of our friend CP. While his passing gives us more pause for thought on this day of all days and brings a tinge of sadness to the usual yuletide celebrations, we’re also minded to celebrate all he did for the anime fansubbing community.
Our original plan was to release something today to mark CP’s B’day but unfortunately forces beyond our control have conspired against us and what we’ve been working on isn’t ready yet (okay okay, it’s mostly or entirely my fault >.> gomenesai ;__; ). However, the good fellas over at Saizen, Live-eviL and what remains of Frostii haven’t been as lazy as me and they have released a number of episodes to mark CP’s birthday, including some projects CP worked on, such as Yawara.
Oh and Merry Christmas one and all. Hopefully we’ll have some releases for you in the very near future.
Some time before our inception as an official fansub group, we did this cute little ONA short by Irodori Studio. If you have 5 minutes free, this is a nice way to spend it.
