Introducing Elysium Subs 3.0!

Introducing Elysium Subs 3.0!

Welcome to the new Elysium Subs! You are now witnessing months of hard work finally made public! Well, mostly laziness, but there's still some work somewhere in there! -.- Why'd we redesign the site? Because the site is built on Joomla, and we needed to update to version 2.5, and I said to myself... I don't like this design anymore, lets make something that's dark! So, here we are, no better reason than that :P. But I'm sure you're all dying of an update, right? So here goes...

We haven't released anything in months, I know, I know... I promised a bunch of shows last season and unfortunately, we didn't deliver any :(. But the problem is that alot of stuff happened to get in the way of doing what we want to do, even if 50% of that is laziness. The other half... school, jobs, etc... you know... that "real life" thing that weird people try to do.

But, I'm here to give you hope! I can gaurantee at least one release in the next week! What that is... you guys will have to find out :P Apart from that, if you want to know the specific status of the projects, they should be up to date on our projects page, if you want to head over and take a look!

Now, let's get back to the biggest change, which is the website! So, just to kinda go over the newest "features" of our site:

  1. It looks awesome! Dark is definately better. Not sure what made me choose a light color scheme in the last design...
  2. DDL is completely integrated into the site! Now, every single project has DDL and the DDL browsing is "part of" the site itself. I'm still amazed at the ammount of bandwidth we're pulling from DDL traffic, and the incredible response you guys have given, so we're now making it even easier to download through DDL.
  3. New Radios. We now have 2 different radio stations. One is the classic playlist radio that everyone loves, but now we have our in-house DJ, Jyasuten, streaming his collection of... basically every kind of music imaginable almost 24/7. All of which is simply amazing music. You guys HAVE to check it out!
  4. Updated Video Playback Guides, to incorporate the newest and best video technologies!

Well, those are the biggest changes and I hope you guys all like it! But, as always we really really want to hear your feedback. Leave a comment below and let us know what you think.

Also, as we are still trying to transition absolutely everything over to our own DDL servers instead of FileServe, let us know if we're missing anything like a whole episode or a patch file by sending us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Please don't leave comments about this, if you want to make sure we get it, at least.

And lastly, please let us know if there's any bugs with the new site. I'm not able to 100% test it in every single environment, so please let me know if anything comes up with comments below or an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . With rendering issues, please do include a screenshot of the problem. However, the site is best viewed with Firefox/Chrome/Safari. Oh, and if something looks wrong... please do a cache bypass refresh (Ctrl + F5 on most browsers) or just empty your cache.

It is an awsome layout, I just wish there was more to do here. This is my favorite anime site there just isnt much to it. I wish you would add some kind of anime database to browse or something even if you dont make it al like Animeplanet but atleast some way to just look up animes to give ideas or just keep us busy and on your site.

Hello kind peoeple. I have never commented here before, but I would really like for you to answer a question of mine. In one of your previous posts you mentioned that the Toradora! BD was going to be covered by a friend of yours, I was wondering who this is? I would very much like to archive this with a trusted BD translator so knowing who your friend is would be greatly appreciated ^^

Also, the new layout looks great and it really shocked me, but I was glad I checked your site periodically for life lol

Hmm, that may or may not go through. So, we end up doing it in the end, but I can't say for sure yet...

Not that I don't like the design (I preferred the old design though a change once in a while is nice), but loading is slower and I don't like the transitions.

Since DDL is hosted on the site now, will there no longer be any bots on IRC? Just asking since the bots aren't on the channel anymore.

I really like this design looks really clean and nice. Also I'm a fan of dark theme because it don't hurts my eyes like light theme are (I also usually overlay page style with dark theme).

Incredibly surprised to find out this is running Joomla, I had to use it recently and found it irritating, just goes to show it can work well.

Great design, dark works well for Elysium.

Unfortunately, I detest dark designs. Light website designs are superior. Why do you think nearly all of the websites you regularly visit have light designs? It's because they have web designers that know what's good.

I'll be checking here less often now to save my eyes from unnecessary strain.

Sorry for the pain?... Actually a good web designer knows when to use a dark theme or a light theme. There's definitely purposes for both, and 70% of the websites out there do end up looking better with a light theme. But that doesn't mean that all site should be light...

This. Also bright themes typically hurt my eyes and most the sites I frequent have dark themes or CSS options.

This.

If I wanted to kill my eyes with bright white screens, I would stare into a lightbulb.
