SWS workshop update (May 2017)

Hello everyone, a small update from us. We felt we needed to explain the silence… We’re currently working on a new version of ‘Fables of the Green Forest’ with better video quality. This will take some time because we need to adjust subs manually, which is time-consuming. Therefore, the release of ‘Nell the Wandering Girl’Johnny-Chuck-Remastered will have to be postponed to a later date. We simply don’t have enough volunteers to work on two series at the same time. Sorry for this! Then there is some extremely sad news: as you may have heard, Nyaa has closed permanently as from 1st of May. Personally, I’ll miss it! If not for sites like this, we would not have the chance to see most anime series. The industry doesn’t provide subtitled or dubbed versions in most countries. The closing also means we’ll have to decide on a new tracker. For now, we changed the download link for ‘Fables of the Green Forest’ to a re-post by a Bakabt user. Bakabt is undergoing maintenance, but promised to be back! We hope the ‘new’ link will work then.
EDIT: we changed the link to Nyaa.si and Nyaa Pantsu, both Nyaa replacements.

Recruiting for ‘Nell the Wandering Girl’!

Our 2nd project has started. ‘Nell the Wandering Girl’ is a 1979 anime, based on the book ‘The Old Curiosity Shop’ by Charles Dickens. It tells the story of a girl living with her grandfather, who has a shop in London. Debt collectors force them to flee. The two then start a search for Nell’s mother. We are looking for translators Italian to English. These subs will be adapted to fit the Japanese audio. For a few songs we need a translator Japanese to English, who could also perhaps assist in end check. Our aim is to start releasing End of 2016. EDIT People who can transcribe/translate directly from Japanese are welcome too. Nell-1
