After nearly two years since our release of episode one, Wasurenai Fansubs and Lemon Sour Subs proudly present the last two episodes of Anyamal Tantei Kiruminzoo! It’s been quite an interesting ride, and as the sole translator for the majority of the series, I must say that it has been a great pleasure working on each episode. Cute cosplay with two especially famous seiyuu casted in, interesting animals and unique characters, along with exciting episodic adventures and heartwarming resolutions, all make for an excellent show in my books.
The series’ seemingly down-to-earth themes subtly contrast very well with issues that are literally as large as the Earth itself. Even though the futuristic gadgets automatically set it in a not-so-distant timeline, it still manages to address animal-related problems that are present in today’s society and environment, be they natural, such as floods and forest fires and tidal recession, or man-made, such as clearcutting and oil spills and garbage, or even a combination of both, such as global warming. Kudos to legendary producer Kawamori Shouji (Macross, Bebop, Eureka, Escaflowne, Aquarion, and many others) for being able to present such major issues in such an easy-to-understand and convincing story.
Translating the series was a superb learning experience for me, not just in the actual translation process, but also for things that I thought I’d already learned all about but still had a few things left in store. Sure, everyone gets the constant “protect the animals” and “be green” and whatnot, but through watching this series, you can actually build an attachment to the the natural world around us, its values, and why it actually needs to be protected. Being a show for kids, it panders to them by showing them the cuteness and grandeur of these fantastic animals living out there, and also what it might be like if we could actually communicate with them. (“Want to Kirumin, everyone!?”)
However, I believe that adults also get value out of this, whether by little-known facts about ordinary (or not-so-ordinary) animals, by being reminded of their duties to this planet as they pass it on to the next generation, or by simply being shown – in a unique new light – the fact that each and every living thing on Earth is connected to one another, and whatever we do to those connections will always have consequences, whether good or bad. The standard virtues of family, friendship, love, and trust also come through quite strongly as well. The sense of familiarity holds tight from start to finish, and I personally feel that these subs are very well-deserved for a series such as this.
Excellent and cute character animation, fantastic soundtracks, funny live action scenes and well-done voice-overs are all, of course, just icing on the cake. (Huge shout out to Neko Jump for awesome OP/EDs!)
For that, I give Anyamal Tantei Kiruminzoo a very high recommendation to all anime viewers out there. As an original work, there is no manga to base the series from, so any and all “fillers” are virtually nonexistent. Pacing is decently done, although the usual rush is shown in the final episodes, but nevertheless well planned out. If you’ve been unsure of whether to watch this series or not, please do give it a try! I can guarantee that there’s something in store for everyone.
OK, that was pretty long, even for me. Here’s the links, and everyone, thank you for watching and patiently waiting for our releases!

A few final notes.
Complete project staff list to be done in the batch post.
(or when Asairo stops being busy and gives the list to me)
I apologize for the massive delay of recap episode 41; there have just been too many sporadic lines from many episodes at once to collect. I am currently helping WM62 on it, and it will be out in the final batch.
Major batchwork under way, please do look forward to the completely re-done first 13 episodes 🙂
Yumeiro Patissiere SP Professional is now getting the MMC treatment, look out for those as well.
**Asairo: Commencing Kiruminphosis
Thanks for completely fansubbing the show (minus Episode 41 :P), any chance of us getting Episode 41 before the batch is released though? 😀
(I have a bad feeling it’ll be a few weeks or a month before that batch is available)
Oh, and here’s hoping that the XviD AVIs for both Episodes 49 and 50 are out, when I wake up from my nap later today :).
Episode 41 will be released along with the batch. That’s why it’s called “a batch”.
Okay-Dokey. Dunno why I’m getting all worked over for a recap episode.
It’s understandable. For an archiver such as me, a hole in a series folder is a little annoying to look at. Blame HAL for possible studio & cast drinking parties when 29 and 41 were being animated.
Meh, for me it’s just that I feel naughty for skipping an episode, when I go to update my MAL, since I basically have to go and lie about watching Episode 41.
When can we expect this so called “batch?”
Thank you for your hard work.
One question: are there going to be other v2s except 01-13? I just want to know if I should hang on to episodes 14-50.
“Recap episodes 29 and 41 get automatic v2′s as we update the older lines with newer ones. Episodes later than 13 may get sporadic v2′s for consistency/timing/editing/translation mistakes.”
Copy/Pasted from the Projects page here: http://wasurenai-subs.com/projects/anyamal-tantei-kiruminzoo/
41 should not have a v2 any more actually, since it’s being done now along with the final batch and corrected lines.
Phew :D, that’s a relief :), looking forward to a super fast release then ;).
Thank you very much for your work.
This is most excellent. I shall raise a toast when the batch is out.
We have no plans for a 10-bit release of Anyamal at this time.
No 10 bit from me.
I honestly don’t get why people prefer 10-bit over 8-bit, the only advantage is less file size, but then there’s more strain on the CPU/RAM and video cards.
And I honestly don’t get why people think about 10bit only as a way to get smaller file.
10 bit has serios advantages in quality over 8 bit. Thats it.
How is it superior quality?
Please explain it to me.
Thanks to higher colour bit deph it doesn’t have some disadvantages 8 bit version have.
Like it can encode smooth gradients right way, instead 8 bit version “banding” effect.
Wow, Thanks guys for such wonderful work!! I have enjoyed this ride with you waiting for each episode to be released.
I value the time and effort you have put into this project and I greatly appreciate and ENJOY the results of your labors.
Many blessing and continued success!!
Yes thanx for finishing this, I will wait for the batch, also am waiting for the batch for 1st season of Yumeiro, look forward to the 2nd season as well, keep it up d(-_^) JAANA~
By the way, 10-bit should not be used at all, no clue as to why most just rushed to use it, it should have been left when hardware support is out or at least it is stabilized, some groups are having hard time with it, all IMO.
Meh, I can’t play 720p, so the change to 10-bit doesn’t affect me that much.
(unless groups start releasing 480p in 10-bit)
Aw, I’m kind of sad that it’s over now… Great show, and great work from all of you to bring it to us! It’s definitely been worth the wait.
You know, there are still a few plot hooks that could hint at further episodes… Or is that too much to hope for?
I doubt there will be a sequel, this anime is really old, like 2009 old.
Thats not the point.
DVD-only disk release, poor sales, poor success on the puplic leave no point for the production studion to do sequel.
Oh, I see…thanks for explaining.
A shame, but BF’s right. Lack of publicity for it, as well as being advertised solely as a children’s anime didn’t do them too well… Hidden gems will be hidden gems, I suppose 😉
I find it hilarious that teen shounen anime like Naruto, Bleach and One Piece, are more popular than children anime like this one.
I could see them doing an OVA, but another series would probably require the main cast to be more grown up. A huge part of Anyamal’s charm is in the innocence of little children and animals alike, and giving that up probably wouldn’t do the story too well.
A couple of OVAs/Specials would be nice :), as long as you guys released XviD AVIs :P.
(though I personally prefer 848×480 H.264 AAC MKV for SD)
I really think good studio can do good show from pretty mutch any story. And Satelite main studio is a quite good studio.
to Toddler Naruto:
AVI is for the people who can’t play HD version. And there is quite a lot different devices unable to play any mkv at all.
@BF3000: I don’t think it will be much longer before most or all devices support MKV.
They already own it.
Like you own your old PC.
And there is no way thay will change it untill it broke complitely.
Hell yeah! I remember when this show was announced and I was praying for someone to do it, then you came and save us. Thank you so much.
Any idea when the actual batch is going to be released? I’m finishing up Jewelpet Tinkle right now, then I’ll move over to this. But if you’re redoing episodes 1-13, I want to wait for them.
So yeah, any estimate? Thanks!
Currently speeding through 8 of 13, then moving on to redoing 29, doing 41 and then quickly watching the rest again of 14-50 for minor mistakes. Possibly by late next week?
Awesome. <3 Thanks for all this, I really, really appreciate it. Glad you stuck through it the whole way. I was worried there for a while. ;D
You can also check the Anyamal Projects page for up-to-the-minute updates on current episode statuses.
Ahhh, I see. Okay, thank you for that as well.
Yay!!! I’ve been waiting two years for this to be finished so I can finally watch it all the way through. Thanks so much for never stopping! You won’t be forgotten!
Thanks for the super quick release of the AVIs :D, BF3000 :)!
I remember when this show was announced and I was worried that no-one would sub it (like Tamagotchi), then Wasureni picked Anyamal up. Thank you for fansubbing the anime! 🙂
Shouldn’t all Wasurenai related stuff be merged on MAL? http://myanimelist.net/fansub-groups.php?q=wasurenai
Looking forward to seeing recap episode Episode 41. 🙂
I don’t know how to change that stuff in my MAL account (though I should, but just been too lazy to learn the website and list 400+ series in my archive). If anyone would be willing to do that for us, that would be awesome.
You have a MAL Account?! 😀
Would you mind posting a link to your profile here? 🙂
(please disregard this message if you already gave it to me via PM in IRC)
BTW, I’ve been diligent to keep all the episodes [H264 1280×720] along with the Sound track and the OP&ED that were done. When the missing episodes are done, I will be glad to help seed. I will also be glad to present it to BakaBT (I’m a power user but I’ve not offered any torrents up to this point).
Thank you for the offer, trip. FLAC OST will be included in the HD batch and MP3 OST will be included in the SD batch to refresh seeding on them and also to get them to people that missed the first set of torrents. It’s up to you whether to offer the series and OSTs together or separately on BakaBT (I know how strictly their staff likes to keep to “official” folder lists and names, so actually your decision will be key in how we’ll decide how the final torrents will be set up; either the OST’s included in the series folder, or separately).
We are also planning, along with the batches, to release patches for H264 episodes that only had changes applied to the script, not the encodes themselves. This should be a lot easier to get people their v2’s and help us seed earlier. 1-5 are exceptions as their brand new encodes now include sorely missed live action scenes. XviDs will, of course, have to be re-downloaded completely.
On a general note, if anyone has found any glaring mistakes in episodes that are not 1-13, 29, and 41, please let us know here, or on IRC.
Unexpected rise in busy levels for all staff. ETA extended to sometime next week (hopefully)
Thanks for keeping us informed of the current situation, regarding the batch and Episode 41.
In ep 42, there were kanji missing from TL notes.
Looking so much forward to the batch! That is one GREAT series.
You mean this?
Check your settings or update your codec packs, both aegisub’s and mpc-hc’s vsfilters display it correctly for me, and thus so should mplayerx/vlc/kmplayer/etc. The correct font for the TL note style is Saigon Italic, try installing it directly in your system by extracting it from the video file. Has this happened before on previous TL notes? Otherwise, your system isn’t set up to render Japanese correctly (ie. unconfigured XP and earlier)
I’m using latest dev version of MPC-HC on Win 7, but despite that, I think that you are right. My system is obviously borked in some way.
Now the epic quest for the solution of how to make asian language support come back on win 7 (sigh).
Thank you very much for subbing.
