So, you’ve probably noticed that I haven’t released anything in over 3 months. Not only that, but I’ve only released 2 series since getting my job in late May.

It’s about time to be straight – I don’t see myself returning to vigorous fansubbing again. Simply put, my interests have sort of just changed over the past 9 (!) years. I’d rather write, game, and work than continue to sub.

That said, let’s give information about any project that may possibly have been announced or started.

Aikatsu – Will finish to the end of Starlight Academy’s series.
Aikatsu Awards Show – Cancelled
Aikatsu Stars – Cancelled
Asterisk – Will complete. Will work using FFF subs as far as possible, and switch to Heroine when I run out of their subs.
Evangelion – Sure, I’ll come back and do this when it’s released in 2020.
Gochiusa – Will complete.
Grand Monogatari Project – Cancelled
Kizumonogatari – Cancelled
Koyomimonogatari – Will start and complete. We’ve already put too much work into it.
Rewrite – Cancelled
Sailor Moon – Cancelled
Yuru Yuri S3 – Will complete using FFF as far as possible, and then Horrible + My own bad TSing to do 11-12.

Maybe you’re celebrating. Maybe you’re mourning. Either way, it is what it is. That said, I am calling this a hiatus instead of a retirement because as my old friend Cloud668 used to say, you never can truly retire from fansubbing.

    I kind of figured that this was coming with the amount of activity recently.
    I have been downloading and watching all of your releases from the beginning. I always visited your website for updates. I never cared about the size of the releases. I always wanted quality. Coalgirls always delivered IMHO.
    The amount of time involved to create a quality release is considerable. From the time to encode, obtaining and updating the subtitle scripts then muxing it all together. Just wow. It amazes me on how productive you and everyone from Coalgirls were. I will truly miss your releases. Thank you again for all your efforts!
    May your future path lead you and yours to happiness and joy. Take care…

    Thanks for all those gorgeous releases. It is ok. Have fun there and I wish you best at your life and job. My only regret is to not date with you. Apparently, I am far away. It is cool to date with an anime lover girl 😉

  30. UpURs writes:

    Okay. Lets get this straight… You guys on “hiatus”, I am sad. But Monogatari, Kizu, Koyo… CANCELLED?! I mean that’s just crazy. That’s should never be cancelled… Please let it drop…

  31. nono writes:

    initiate dropping
    maybe it works

  32. danlor writes:

    I truly appreciate all you have done. I consider your releases to be a benchmark in the community, and a level that all releases should aspire to be. While I know you don’t care about my opinion, I did want to say farewell. I hope to see you guys around in the future.

    Nine years is a long time.

    Still, you have given me a lot of contentment for just the effort of downloading during those years.

    I have never really commented before on this site but I just want to thank you for all the releases and I hope that you might someday continue to do this because a lot of people truly appreciated it.

  41. Mistgun Zero writes:

    I figured something like this would happen. It was only a matter of time. Thanks for the work. And Monogatari T_T. It was supposed to be dropped, not cancelled. At least Kizu….it is pretty much the masterpiece of the whole series.

    Well, hope to see you once in a while. Good Luck.

    Thanks for all your work, every Coalgirls release I have experienced has been a good one.

  47. Bouncy writes:

    thank you for everything. I hope you guys do come back and fansub Kizumono at least. I know that you guys said it was cancelled, however, my collection of Monogatari series always came from your fansubs so I hope you will do it for your fans. I probably won’t go for another subber of Kizumono unless it is your fansubs or someone with equal quality. Still I have to thank you for all the amazing releases!

It’s been quite a run, hope you guys have a great time with whatever you’re all doing. Enjoy, Keep Calm and Stay Awesome! Have a Great Day, Guys! I’ll be looking forward to the day, Coalgirls relive again.
