D4 Princess

Well, I have to admit I'm quite surprised someone decided to sub this. It's not very well-known. To be more helpful to teh people who don't know about this anime. It's based on a manga edited by Dengeki/Mediaworks (4 volume long) and it's a series composed of 10-minutes episodes, with music by Kenji Kawai. THe story is generally humorous, with some exceptions (I won't spoil, though). Someone may say it's really weird, and in a sense it is. Mostly because the manga has practically nothing to do with the anime, only some characters from it are in (Doris, her sister Doria - she appears in episode 2 - and Doris' friends), plus the anime is more on the parodi side, and it can be seen from the very first episode.
Since I own the original DVDs, I'm quite pleased that finally I can understand better what's going on. My only complaint is that ASS got a sentence wrong. When Doris transforms she says "Set Form" (and later in the anime "Form Up"), and not "Transform". But it's just a minor complaint.

It shouldn't be that big of a surprise, as D4 Princess has been fully fansubbed for years now. It may be the first time it's being released as a digisub, but the series was completely fansubbed not long after it was released in Japan, by Odyssey Anime.

Sachi still have the 2 tapes available for distribution.

Well, I wasn't so informed about VHS subs, at that time (I knew only a few groups). After i spent a lot fo time trying to find something, I decided to stick with the DVDs....anyway a digsub of D4 is a good thing 8P if only someone could have done the same with the manga...8P

There was a digisub version (just a rip of the VHS fansub, IIRC) from some time around 2001. The file sizes are pretty small (20-50 MB), but for such short episodes it was watchable.

I watched this show subbed on VHS ages ago, but the copy I have is so degraded that it looks awful. Even so, I enjoyed it an awful lot and I am looking forward to collecting ASS's version of this show. It was fun the first time and I think it will be really fun to see it again.

I got the digital sub for this. The file size is very small though. <_<

But that was what I used to get through finals two years ago.

The OP is catchy? Not nearly as catchy as the ED. I love the ED song.

My Bad.

Ur right. I was thinking about the Runrun Ururunrun all along. T'was the ED song after all.
hhmmm...I wonder if someone cosplayed the little cute girl with a drill in his haid.
That would have been cute and hilarious.

With very few exceptions, if there are English subbed DVD releases then it means the series has been licensed. If it's licensed, then it wouldn't be listed on AnimeSuki.

In other words, there are no official English subbed DVD releases. You might be able to find illegal bootleg DVDs (read The generic "Is this a bootleg" thread) but why you would want to do so is another matter.

As far as we are aware there are no other fansubs availabe than those listed on AnimeSuki. At least with the LQ video rips you can see the complete series.

Why is this marked as Completed in the list when only 4 episodes are subbed?

Because way back on the 24th Apr 2005, a torrent batch for eps 7 to 24 was released that completed the series. The "Completed" flag on AnimeSuki means that at one point in time the series was completed. Unfortunately the torrent (on kazooclub.cjb) is long dead.
