Well, here we are at the final episode. It’s a momentous occasion for me.
I founded this group a year ago to sub Gundam AGE, and now it’s finally coming to an end.
While I must say I’m glad to see it go, I feel a sense of accomplishment at its end.
There were some people who thought a new startup group couldn’t hold it together for a whole year to sub such a long show. They doubted us, they questioned our resolve. Not many groups these days choose to sub anything over 26 eps simply because of the amount of work it entails and the length of the commitment.
But we prevailed. Even though not all of us actually liked the show, our commitment to it and to each other brought us together every Sunday to put in our best efforts and bring the show to you. It wasn’t easy- there were early mornings, long nights, shuffled schedules, disagreements, and some people walked away. All of us gradually came to realize that this show wasn’t going to be a spectacular example of the Gundam franchise. But we stuck with it.
I want to thank all of you who watched the show and supported our efforts over the course of a year. In the end, it was all for you, the leechers (and I mean that term in the best possible light.) An entire year of my life is now marked by memories of discussions in our IRC channel, live-watching threads on /m/, comments on our website. Thank you.

Status on other projects:
At my job, a project is reaching culmination and I haven’t had much time for fansubbing. I’m sorry, but I have to keep my job.
I anticipate more time for fansubbing coming up after the project is over, in a week’s time.
I will not give any hard dates for Tanken and SEED, but I’d like to get caught up on them just as much as you want us to. Let’s see what I can get done this week.
We are picking up Bakuman 3.
Anything else is up in the air. If a show turns out to be undersubbed, we may do it. Too early to tell.
Even though the site says I wrote the post, it was cardslash02. I just started drafting the staff list a few days ago.

I was too lazy to figure it out, Rem. Thanks brah.
