An explosion occurs at a chemical factory, leaving one person dead. The investigation team concludes that it is merely an accident, but Ebina Maiko has her doubts. When she goes to the site again, she finds a man who introduces himself as “Chokozai.” After blurting out a series of words that Maiko cannot understand, he suddenly falls asleep. Maiko decides to look up the meaning of these words. She is taken aback when she discovers that when put together, these words provide the key to solving the case. — TBS via Drama Wiki

    Thank you very much.
    And I’m waiting for your translation that is more than impressive accuracy
    Anoo… I want to ask when will put the next episode

    What ever happened to IRC? I’m in a position where I can’t use BT and loved the fact this group had an IRC presence.

    • It was a perk to have an IRC channel with bots that served most of our files, but the bots did cost money and this is purely a hobby for us. =/
      Also, the person in charge of the bots is MIA… so that means no more bots. :(

  • waaaa…Thank you!

  • 7970

    Any news yet on direct download options?

    • Sorry no news on that since we haven’t had any suggestions on what to use!

    First HD link is broken :( perhaps the thread changed or was removed?

    • Sorry about that. Looks like there’s some sort of D-Addicts database issue with that torrent for some reason. It’s fixed now!

  • Aya

  • Anonymous

    when is the ep4 sub will be released?

  • qncitgds

    Hmm… 4 episodes behind. Is there a reason for this big delay ?

    • Our translator moved to another city and he was also preoccupied with Diablo 3. :p Episode 4 was just released today, btw!

  • Al

    just say if you resigned from subbing it so somebody else can do it

    • We have no intentions of resigning… Episode 4 was just uploaded last night!

  • Brian

    SARS doesn’t owe me anything, but I’m glad for all the fansubs.

    I got a little depressed by the tone of some comments :(

    (I hope my english makes sense)

  • Nobuopaulo

    Waiting for episode 5 and rest of Ataru!   


    Very Interesting Drama…. hopefully we’ll get the subs before Christmas 2012…dont want my donation to go to waste otherwise i’d rather donate to the translator personally for subs…. and thanks for the subs…. I know you work hard but as most dramas state “if you do something do it to the end and have no regrets with no half assed-feelings.”

  • Alwin Roe

    Any idea why Ebina was ‘nyaa’-ing after stuffing herself with the bento?

  • ikiro

    You’ve made a great choice with this dorama. It’s really interesting, very well filmed and the cast has great chemistry.
    THANK YOU so much for your effort, I really enjoy this tv series thanks to your hard work. ^^
    PD: According to hosters’ suggestions, I use 4shared and Narod lately.
    4shared doesn’t delete the files even without downloads, you must only open the account once every 6 months. But free accounts are only 15 Gb.
    Narod allows big files and they’re not deleted during 90 days without downloads, in a free account.
    Hope this can help. Cheers!! :)

    • Thanks for your suggestions. We’ll have to see if these hosters fit our needs.

  • User

  • Mi-chan

    I know this is belated, as I watched this with your subs months ago, but thank you so much for the subs ^^ My Japanese is not good enough for me to be able to understand everything in shows like this, because it has such an obscure vocabulary. I’m excited for the Ataru sp. subs, I’ve already watched it but missed quite a bit of what’s going on xD

  • Jazy

    I can’t wait for the Ataru film!

  • Hi guys~ I was wondering if someone can see ATARU eps1 from Nyaa or D-addict? Currently this is the only episode left that is not going at all. I am seeding the rest of the series :)
