The promised day is come. Sporting flashy new t-shirts, After School Tea Time is ready to take the stage and… reminisce about Romeo and Juliet?!
Get your vocal cords ready and join us in singing “One, two, three, four, rice!” as we present episode 20 of K-On!!
PPS. For those if you having problems with our releases and mplayer (VLC, etc), read on for directions.
PPPS. (from Sylf) Just recently, one of our archive bots, Frostii|Kelloggs, has retired. A big thanks goes to its provider, ___its.

Just like pretty much every fansub group in the world, Frostii are looking for translators.
Currently the only dedicated translator we have is Sylf, who is looking to ease himself out of fansubbing somewhat and doesn’t want to translate any more shows that air weekly. This means that to take advantage of the mass dropping of projects (see below) and to pick up new series, we’ll need new translators.
Translators will be required to translate Japanese into English. You’d think this would be a fairly obvious statement, but some people apparently don’t realise it. We don’t need perfect native fluency in English (that’s what editors are supposedly for) but we do need something better than we’d manage with Google translate (and we don’t want it in Spanish either). We’d also prefer people who have the free time to do something like this, and aren’t going to vanish or announce they don’t want to do it any more when we’re five episodes into a series.
We don’t know what shows any new translator will be needed for, because we’ve not decided what we’re doing next season yet, and that decision is usually heavily influenced by what shows the translator wants to do anyway.
Anyone who is interested, apply in #frostii-recruits on Rizon

Ever since April, we have resisted dropping a few troubled projects. We’ve made our efforts, made attempts to save these projects, but by now, we all know it’s futile. So we are officially dropping these three projects:
- Eden of the East movies
- Ookami Kakushi
The Project List page has been updated, so check that page before you ask status about any other projects.

This is a bit of an old news for people who’ve been following Ureshii / Froth-Bite / Frostii for four years or more… When you are nervous, and need to calm yourself down, spell “pumpkin” on your palm with a magic marker, then try to swallow the hand. (Asatte no Houkou, episode 3) We have a perfect demonstration presented in this episode. Try it when you have a chance next time.
