Nana is freelech at Animebytes!

As you know, our Nana torrents are mostly dead here due to lack of seeding capability on our part. However, if you’re a member of Animebytes, you may know that Nana is the Anime of the Fortnight. That means you can download our batch from an extremely well-seeded torrent, and it won’t count against your ratio!

You can grab it here if you have an account.

I do want to make note of something: everyone keeps citing the source of our subs, but not mentioning that we edited them. If you would do a side by side comparison of the scripts, you’ll see that there are severe changes in over half of the lines. Editing each episode was a major effort, so please don’t think that we just muxed the Ureshii scripts on Utsukushii’s encodes. We may have had daily releases for awhile, but a lot of work went into them!

NANA – Episode Forty-Seven (END)

What a ride.

So, it’s done. That brings an end to our first project at Jinsei, and man, what a project. From the initial enthusiasm and daily releases to sometimes struggling to get a release out within four days, it’s been a long journey for us. We’ve had disagreements (though very few) and we’ve had fun (lots of it). For me, it was a great opportunity to revisit a series I’ve always loved, and one that’s rightfully acclaimed. This last episode packs as much of a punch as you’d expect, I knew what was going to happen beforehand and I still had a lump in my throat. Amazing stuff.

We’ve touched on the author of Nana in previous posts, one Yazawa Ai. You may notice that the anime feels a little unfinished, and you have questions regarding what happens next, which characters did what and why. Well, join the masses. The mangaka got ill and the story remains sadly unfinished. If you enjoyed her work this time round, some of her other works have been adapted into anime, look for Gokinjo Monogatari and Paradise Kiss. As for Nana itself, there are two live action movies in circulation. The Nobu actor really annoys the hell out of me but eh, you might enjoy it!

As for Caly and myself… I’m taking another hiatus from subbing due to time constraints. You can find Caly working for a handful of active subbing groups, she’s doing AKB0048 and Sword Art Online for Evetaku, Yuru Yuri 2 for SHiN-gx and Arcana Famiglia for Whine Subs. You can also find her lurking on the european servers of Forsaken World, doing her healing thing.

Last, and most certainly not least, it’s left for me to throw out some thanks to the people who made this project possible:
Utsukushii Raws, without whom there would never have been a project.

Ureshii (and more specifically Collectr) for allowing us use of their scripts. Thanks also to IY-F & Oki for subbing the episodes Ureshii didn’t.

Dark Sage for letting us use his seedbox for the first few episodes.

Sutai for letting us use HIS distro for a few episodes after that.

The legend that is Squiggy for offering us a complete distro solution and asking nothing in return. He’s one of the good, good people.

And a thanks to the guys who left us comments and let us know when we’d derped regarding the CRCs, an error with Caly’s PC that remains a mystery to this very day.

Thanks for watching our releases.

NANA – Episode Forty-Six


It soon became obvious why Yasu went bald.

We only have one episode more, and that will be Mayuyu’s release post. So I guess that means this is my pose to say thank you to everyone.

Picking Nana as our first project here at Jinsei was really ambitious, as a new two-person group, but I think we’ve succeeded in bringing you great subs to do this show justice. We had a lot stronger of a start than a finish, with daily releases for a few weeks, but unfortunately, real life got to be a bit demanding for us. But you’ve stuck by us and I hope you’ve all enjoyed the show!

NANA – Episode Forty-Two


Oh, here’s a release pic for you. Reira ❤

So I made a new account for my MMO and everything and I’m having so much fun playing two characters at once. It’s challenging and my PC hates me for it, but I feel like I’m getting so much done–

Oh, right, fansubbing. Well, here’s another episode for you! That’s something, right?

NANA – Episode Thirty-Nine

Looked at the lineup for the Summer 2012 anime season, thoroughly underwhelmed. A few sequels I want to watch but nothing that stands out as much as, say, Sakamichi no Apollon or Uchuu Kyoudai do this season. Meh.

Things are heating up for Nana, BLAST are about to be launched into the spotlight. How will they cope?
