Dattebayo to pick up Pokemon Diamond & Pearl - Naruto dropped*, what now?
I haven't been here on NL for quite a while, but when I saw the following message at DB's website, it scared the shit out of me...
Dattebayo to pick up Pokemon Diamond & Pearl - Naruto dropped*
Dattebayo Fansubs LLC was proud to announce today that it has decided to officially pick up the currently in progress season of "Pokemon Diamond & Pearl".
Pokemon Diamond & Pearl is the newest installment of the overwhelmingly popular Pokemon series. This show once again stars Satoshi, a young Pokemon trainer attempting to make his mark on the world while continuing to fiercely train his Pokemon, and simultaneously battling the evils he encounters along the way.
Due to the enomity of this project, and the limited resources at the disposal of Dattebayo Fansubs LLC, it was decided that the best course of action was to drop* the show Naruto. Declining profit margins and recent increases in production costs have made the release of this product impossible to maintain.
We hope that fans will be understanding in this time of transition and will share in our excitement about this fabulous new presentation.
- Q: Does "naruto dropped" mean you will stop subbing it?
- A: Yes.
- Q: Will you also drop "Bleach"?
- A: If enough people request, yes.
- Q: Since you are now subbing Pokemon DP and started at episode 9 will you be subbing episodes 1-8
- A: Yes
So they're gonna sub Pokémon instead of Naruto? Are they out of their minds? Which subbinggroup will take over their suberb subbing quality now?
Oooooh, long time no see! 0.ô
