About

Hello, we are Commie, a group of folks who like to fansub in our spare time. This is the page where we tell you how awesome we are.

 

Our primary purpose is to provide the best translated English subtitles to fans of the anime community, while remaining within the limits of manageable video and audio quality and file size. In such a daring pursuit, we found that certain compromises and priorities had to be made, chief among them legibility, comprehension and flow over more literal interpretations, the adoption of newer technologies for more efficient file sizes, and the unfortunate-but true fact that the majority of our viewers are speakers of American English.

 

We seek to provide these translations in as timely a manner as possible, though never discounting human and mechanical limitations. Also, as forward-thinkers, we also seek to promote the very active field of video playback development, and thus will always seek to utilize the cutting-edge technologies of the encoding community.

 

Though unfortunate, we realize this does incur a cost; a small but very vocal proportion of our viewers do not agree with our approach to language, nor our utilization of avant-garde technologies. Loathe as we are to possibly alienating our loyal friends in the community, we have come to two very simple conclusions: to the former, we suggest seeking out alternative translation efforts; the latter, we suspect that the private sector of anime viewership is more than capable and willing to accommodate you.

 

Getting our releases:

 

Our releases are indexed on TokyoToshokan, and hosted on Nyaa.si. Plus, we have XDCC bots in our IRC channel. If you can’t find something on one of those, come tell us and we’ll get it to you.

 

Notice to international subbers: do whatever you want with our scripts and/or releases. We’re not able or willing to stop you. We only ask that you don’t make trouble for us.

  4. KK says:

    Any chance you guys are uploading the 4th Persona 3 movie soon?

  5. Oddball says:

    Bit of an odd ball question probably, but I was wondering if you guys would be able to sub the 1997 Dr. Slump series?

    I think you all are more interested in recent releases, but I figured it didn’t hurt to ask. Not sure how much interest there is for a forgotten series like this, but eh.

    If you guys want to/are able/care I found a torrent for the episodes here [https://nyaa.torrentscloud.xyz/?page=view&tid=245087]

  6. Oddball says:

    Figured. Thanks anyway though. Keep up the awesome subs :)

  7. chris says:

    There are 1000’s of people hoping on a saviour…

    Just wanted to show my appreciation for the opening subs on Terra Formas, had me laughing for a while. I’m happy you didn’t get the lyrics in time coz that was way better.

  12. randumb says:

    You guys considering doing the Heaven’s Feel movie when it releases?

  13. Daff says:

    Hi,
    I’m downloading Haikyuu!! BD, but it’s pretty slow to download… Can you fix it?

  14. cokefish says:

    thx for subs

  15. H4rrisH4wk says:

    Hey, okay, bit of a question and I am expecting the answer no… However nothing ventured nothing gained.

    Can I pay you guys to work in “off season” if there is such a thing, to sub the Japanese live action show “Stepfather Step” which I can’t find subs for anywhere.

    I know you’re very busy especially during anime seasons and in real life. Which is why I am very serious about actually paying you if I can.

    I understand if the answer is no however.

  16. kkk says:

    Will you be doing 3 gatsu no lion vol 7,8 ?

  17. Takeshi18 says:

    You guys have XDCC/DDL?

  18. Dr. Who? says:

    Is Eotena Onslaught available anywhere? From what I can tell, the torrents and DDL on Nyaa and AnimeTosho are dead.
