Orphan Fansubs Labor Day Clearance!

Yes, our inventory is overflowing here at Orphan Fansubs, so it's time for a big back-to-school sale to clear the backlog. We're literally giving things away here, folks, so don't hesitate to pick something up for your PC or Mac. Everything must go!

Seriously, the team has been accumulating materials far beyond its limited bandwidth for translation and translation checking. Accordingly, we'll be doing two things:
  1. Torrenting unique raws for which there is no translator, in hopes of inspiring a Japanese translator to help. (Erik of Piyo Piyo Productions has always torrented his raws, so those are already available.)
  2. Releasing shows that need translation checking but have no resources as "works in progress," again in hopes of inspiring a translator.
So let's get the party rolling!

Our first release under this policy is the raws of Dokushin Apartment Dokudami-sou, a 1989 three-part ecchi OVA. (Finding translators for ecchi materials is even harder than normal shows.) It has languished in our raw archive for close to two years. M74 encoded these raws from a laserdisc rip provided by ics-. The only other raws available are VHS rips, so this is a noticeable improvement.

This release is available from the usual torrent sites or from IRC bot Orphan|Arutha in channels #nibl or #news on irc.rizon.net.

Stay tuned for more bargains from Orphan Fansubs!


  1. https://www.anirena.com/?s=[PPP-Raw] for all of my dumb raws. I have my own file server, so yeah, I seed pretty much 24/7... unless the server is having a problem.

    1. Oh, except for Sanctuary. I kinda... misplaced that, somehow. Just grab Orphan's version of that one for now. At some point I'll recap it just for the DVD conversion.
