Updates Galore

Alrighty so now for some updates. Some of you may have noticed that I'm back now. Well, just to confirm it, yes I'm back now. I had to replace my Video card AND my DVD Burner (It had a problem recognizing and reading CDs for some reason) and it also cost me $138 all together too :(

Anyways enough about that though. I do have some good news to share. I apologize for the wait, but I promise releases. First of all, we're going to finish Zero no Tsukaima Season 2. Ya, I know it's almost a year old now, but we've released 10/12 episodes. And the other 2 were translated as well, so I'd kinda like to see it get finished.

Secondly, I'm not sure when, but at the same time do any of you guys remember a group called Kaze no Koe Fansubs (KnKF)? Remember how they released 9 episodes, or maybe 10, of Tsubasa Chronicle Season 2? Well most of this group's core members also came from KnKF, and the TL worked really hard on those episodes, and translated them all for us. Unfortunately due to various circumstances that project was dropped. But I still have most, if not all, of those scripts and a lot of them were actually pretty much ready for Encode. So I'm going to try and get that released as well, just so that it doesn't go to waste.

I'm also working on finishing off another older series that Lunar started but never finished, called Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch. Lunar released the first 39 episodes, and then got stalled. They haven't shown any life for that project since last September and I'm sure there are a few people out there who would like to see the rest of it. So I'm going to start at episode 40 and finish it off. I should be able to have the first release of that ready within a week or two, depending on how things go. And if that works out good, I plan on subbing the sequel, Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch PURE as well, as no anime should ever go unsubbed. Especially if someone subs the first few episodes and then drops it, it's not fair to the people who want to see the rest of it.

Ok so you've heard about the 3 older series that I plan on finishing off and releasing, so now you probably want me to talk about newer series, like something from this Spring season. Well sorry to say, you won't see anything from Toki during the Spring season, HOWEVER! I plan on picking up 2 brand new projects this summer during the Summer season. I won't say which ones yet, but please look forward to them and don't count us as dead yet.

Quick Update

For those of you wondering:

I still don't have my computer back, but I know for certain what the problem is now. The fan for my Video Card broke, so my video card overheated literally melting a chip or two on the board itself. And it looks like to replace the Video Card with one equal to what I already have will cost me $49 + $25 for their work fee. And they might charge me a little extra for the cleaning as well, I'm not sure. So I'm looking at spending anywhere from $75 to $100 on this, cause I can't even say for sure that the $49 quote I'm giving you for my video card is right or not, I'm just going by their website, and what they give me might change depending on what they receive. Any help anyone wants to offer will be appreciated, but not necessary. I guess this week I just can't put any money away into a savings account, that's all...

Ok so it seems I might have been wrong about it being a monitor problem... After speaking with Edward_K and noticing a few new things on my own, I'm told it might actually be a problem with my video card and not my monitor. This new revelation came to me last night when I found an old monitor in my basement and hooked it up to my computer and found out it was doing the exact same thing as my first monitor and what are the chances that the same thing could happen to 2 monitors? That and I started to notice that my computer would get to a certain point in booting up and then reset on itself, and that didn't sound like something my monitor would cause... Anyways, a half decent - Good NVidia Video card costs a lot less than a new monitor, so if that's the case it won't be as expensive for me to fix anymore and I might even be able to afford it on my own.
