11 out of 12 total episodes have been subbed by Anime Faith and Solar&Faith. The show hasn't been licensed, but it falls under the Media Factory request to stop fansub distribution. So most sites and trackers have dropped it, but torrents are still active if you know where to look.

Just go to that first link I provided and go to Anime-Faiths IRC channel, they have a fast bot with all the episodes released so far (ive watched all rlsd so far) great stuff :)

oh and lastly its not licensed and having watched it, Id be ****ing shocked if it ever came to america. Just not something that would sell well here. So if you want to watch it, this is probably the only way you see it (besides importing Japanese dvds)

Trackers are responding with errors and Jasio seems to be down. Maybe I'm dense, unlucky, or I just need to try later.

From the description it seems similar to Otaku no Video... only actually funny rather than irritating and boring.

It looks like only the Spanish and French fansubs are now available. The English fansubs are no longer listed on the trackers.

C'est la vie.

I didn't like otaku no video. It made me wonder if I'd wind up like that some day. I don't think I want to see it.

I haven't seen Otaku no Video but way to go by what someone who has only read the description's idea of it is. But I digress, I dont think its something you should watch anyway.

also totally unrelated to your post, there is an anime they discuss in the anime Genshiken, its a subanime if you will much like gekinganar (sp?) from Martian Sucessor Nadesico, but anyway its called Kujibiki Unbalance and its from the creators of Genshiken, the first Oav was just released by Anime-Faith and it was pretty good.

I'm actually using Firefox 1.0 and the operation times-out. Tried it with Spybot immunizations disabled as well. If you're able to view it, then there's just something about my system or Win98 that jasio.net doesn't like. Chiyo-chan's WinXP system can't browse that address either (time-out error). I'll have a go at it at the local library this afternoon; maybe Comcast is up to something.

I think it might be Comcast. I can access Jasio when tunneling through my company's proxy server.

Demo.. I'm using Firefox with Comcast too... Did Chiyo-chan gain control of the parent-control settings? :)

Btw this got licensed by media blasters so I kind of have to eat my words on it. This is a definitely one of those how the **** did this get licensed moments that im having.

Anyway Jasio still works :D
