I like Fukatsu Eri too, but I don't think it's going to happen for either of us.

According to the link you posted, it was an original production by Gyao, an internet TV company. At the time it was only available on Gyao and I'm guessing this series was a promotional thing they did to get interest in their on-line content.

I you want to buy the DVD it can be purchased here:


Reviews are mixed as I'm sure they would be for free internet content. Given the low exposure such a show would have, I'm not sure anyone would have bothered trying to upload it to the P2P networks. Best of luck.

Found a clip from it. But I completely do not understand what is being said. So even if I get a dvd, I'll still be lost. Heard that Eri sung the closing credit song in her animated childlike voice.

Thanks : ) But ep 8 seems to be absent. Kinda strange to be the only one replying for a while now, but I've seen a couple of replies on your site though. I am very happy with your subs! :thumleft:

Antspace: We appreciate your comments very much! :) Thank you for watching and following the releases.
True that the series is not the typical one and the won't gather as much attention as some other "mainstream" productions. In that sense, we're not counting for a large feedback from the viewers. The download stats vary from 20 to 30 depending on the episode, so there is someone watching. :)

As for episode 8 - I've checked the mu folder. You can follow the link to get it. [CLICK!]

Ohh, you didn't found ep8.
I thought you mean, this episode is strange. I did not like most of the animated episodes yet.

Yes, it Fukatsu Eri no Black Comedy none mainstream, but i am very thankful for the subs.

I believe, it is good to have the posibillity to discover the wide spectrum of asian tv entertainment. The capture/encoder make a preselection, than the file-distributors select what they prefer, at least the subber pick up what they like. The average consumer get a ready-made image of the asian tv culture. It is similiar to the manga community few years ago. Only few people outside japan knew the less selling magazine and their content.

It is rare to find a subbed niche product of japanese drama after this selection chain.
