Hello, and welcome to Elysium Subs! We are a HD fansub group that came about midnight of of December 31, 2010. Around that time, we began to get incredibly frustrated at the extreme shortage of fansubbed HD anime that are truly of "high quality". It seemed that each group had one thing they focused on: video quality, subtitles, styling, etc.. There were few, if any, groups that actually incorporated all of those attributes of "high quality" into one release. So, we came up with the idea that we could do it better ourselves. So, here we are today. Here to bring you HD anime that's done right!
This group started up with two guys, with no prior real fansubbing experience, with nothing but ambition and a clear understanding of what makes a fansub group truly shine. We recognized that a truly good release that people will want to watch or archive is not one with just the best subtitles, or one with the very best video quality. Fans want one that can excel in all areas and will satisfy what each person is looking for.
Here, at Elysium Subs, we really pride ourselves in offering the best in ALL aspects. We don't only focus on video quality or only on subs. These are our standards that you can expect in each and every release:
Pure HD video source. This includes Blu-Rays and some Internet sources. NO DVDs or TV-Rips.
Incredible video quality. We make sure that each release is up to par with our standards, meaning you will get the best looking release that the show can be offered in. Sometimes this means the release will stay in 720p due to source limitations.
Great Subs, we do an insane ammount of research into who's subs we decide to use. We check to make sure that the subs are the most accurate, easy to understand, and have the best English fluency.
Karaoke! Most BD fansubs tend to leave this out... we don't. We recognize that its extremely fun to sing along to OPs and EDs, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you!
Great Typesetting. What good are subs when it strains your eyes to read them? We spends lots of time and effort in styling the subs that is most pleasing to the eye
Bloat-free and Reasonable File Sizes. It seems like most other BD fansub group feels that the bigger the file, the better. This is absolutely not true. Our releases will never come bloated with useless bitrates. This sometimes means they will surprisingly small. Check our F.A.Q. for more info about this.
Unlike most subbers out there, we try to keep our fans as happy as possible. If you have a comment, our ears(or eyes in this case...) are open. If you have a suggestion, we will always at least consider it. Feel free to speak up if you don't like something we do, as well. We try to take all criticism positively.
