October 22nd Fansub.TV Turns 18!
2004 - 2022

Fansub is now an adult! I guess that means we should get out of our parents basement and go get a job? lol


Check out our updated birthday gallery!

Also I feel the need to include NMusic's Ultimate Nightcore Hands Up Birthday Mix...because its birthday related and totally nothing to do with the awesome maid background picture :)

And for the "get a job" reference...

To reduce the monthly costs of running FTV and MATV I have reduced the size of the server instance and migrated it over to the original FTV server. This means that FTV is back in its original home since 2011, with modern software etc of course. The new location is a smaller instance therefore it wont be quite as speedy, but as the site is basically unused nowadays it shouldn't make much difference. In terms of monthly costs however, the reduction is significant, as this means we are now running entirely on the server that is very kindly donated to us by daft27. A very big thank you to daft for still supporting FTV for all these years.
HM Queen Elizabeth II has died

HM Queen Elizabeth II, the UK's longest-serving monarch, has died at Balmoral aged 96, after reigning for 70 years.


She died peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer.
The Queen came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change.
Her son King Charles III said the death of his beloved mother was a "moment of great sadness" for him and his family and that her loss would be "deeply felt" around the world.
Source BBC News.

From myself and all at the FTV & MATV community we would like to extend our sincerest condolences to the Royal Family.

As a show of respect we have muted our colours.

As of October 1st we have reverted our colours to the standard design, you can see the ones we used below.

I have decided to try out a new layout for the Animes section of the forum, starting with this season a new forum will be created for each anime season. Once the season ends the threads will be moved to the forum area for that season and the 'Current Season' will then receive the new threads. The idea is to allow us to use the article layout which will create a display similar to the many anime charts we all love. As this is a new idea, I welcome feedback and suggestions below, please do let me know what you think and how it could be improved. The new threads will feature the first post with info from the wiki, this allows it to be easily updated with more info by staff at a later date.

Here are some screenshots in our two main colour schemes.

Dear Anime Fans,
When I was offered the chance to take over FTV, I did so with the hope and aim to bring it back to a thriving community, like it was back when I joined. Fansub was always something special to me, it helped me find all the anime that I love and was a great community with wonderful people. I wanted to preserve it, and keep it going.

I have operated Fansub.TV for around 6 years at this point, and MATV for even longer, and as each year passes the forum gets quieter and quieter. I keep saying "lets give it one more year" in the hope that I can revive it. Last year an old member returned to us and made the most amazing effort in trying to bring life back into the community, sadly the real world has kept them busy for a while, and it is now apparent the community has declined even further.

Some people have been very critical of my leadership and operation of Fansub, one going as far as saying I killed it. All I can tell you is that I genuinely tried...
Attention Fansub TV Bloggers ! - LAST CHANCE !

The blogs.fansub.tv service is looking rather dead, with only 2 blogs being updated in the past 7 years (!!) it is pretty obvious all of you have abandoned your blogs.
These abandoned blogs are just becoming a giant spam trap, today yet another blog got hit by the spammers, and we now have some 300,000+ comments to remove on that blog alone. This requires a massive amount of work to manually delete them, and it is not fair to put this work onto FTV staff.

Therefore, I believe it is time to shutdown the blog service. I don't like removing content from the internet, therefore:

I am giving all you blog owners one last chance to come forward!

The options are:
1). Keep your blog as is, BUT you must manage it and the comments. You don't have to make regular posts, just make one (so I know you updated it) and look after it.
2). We transfer your blog either to an individual wordpress one or into the main site under the editorial / frontpage (contact us on forum/irc/pm...

Winding Down of Fansub TV Services

  • 1,437

I think it is about time to face reality, FTV / MATV has been practically dead for some time now, and despite my best efforts to try to find anyone willing to help or even write posts, no one is interested.

Therefore, I will start to close some of the site down, starting with items that are the least used and that have a financial cost to them.
At present, the first items I am looking at will be:

Karaoke Monster
Fansub TV blogs*

*Although I do not pay for the blog hosting, these are kindly paid for by Daft, I think it is somewhat unfair for him to keep paying for something no one has used in years, however I will consult with him first.

If there is anyone who has any interest at all in the site, now would be a good time to contact me.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to FTV and MATV over the years, without all of you, we would not have made it this far.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Welcome to yet-another-update of the website, this time the change is to our front page. Over the history of the site we have had many different designs, from anime updates to the pulse system and the Necromendations. The past 5 years we have been in a bit of limbo, with a mix of broken parts of the pulse system and hastily placed Crunchyroll updates, it has not always been ideal. Therefore, I am pleased to announce our new article system where by contributors can write and publish articles right to the website front page, and not just limited to a single page like before.

It is my hope that this can be the new home for the creativity that once brought you the J-Zine, with interesting articles from many of the talented members of our community.

If you have an interesting idea for an article, a review, a recipe or even a story of a journey to a far off land, and feel like writing for The Front Page, then please send me a message for details, or post a comment below.

We...​
Happy Christmas from the Fansub.TV Team!
