I have a dream!

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration of fansubbing in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great fansubber, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, subbed the Death Note series. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of anime fans who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

But one hundred years later, the batch still is not finished. One hundred years later, the life of the fans is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the fans lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the fans is still languished in the corners of fansubbing society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we’ve come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.

We cannot turn back.

Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my fans.

And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the anime dream.

I have a dream that one day the magnificent series of Death Note, a series so great it can be watched over and over again, will be subbed by the subbers of TSR.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they can watch Death Note subbed in their own language; english!

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; and the slow TSR will finish their project!

With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.

And this will be the day — this will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning:

My Death Note ’tis of thee, sweet subbers of liberty, of thee I sing.

Land where my fathers died, land of L’s pride,

From every mountainside, let freedom ring!

And if TSR is to be great fansubbers, this must become true… but not today.

Instead of focusing on actual QC, fixing and completion of our Death Note batch we have shifted focus onto our website. You may notice the new header, and we are coming closer to the look and feel we want from our site now. I guess we should soon shift focus back onto the batch and doing work on Death Note. For our regular readers you know what that means; moar delays, plz!
