Another Call for help!

Hey everyone, Yukirin here.

I was hoping I could take a minute of your time for something that could really help AIDOL and the Oshimen-VOD project. Basically I’m looking for votes in a competition that could help “Moonflow” get some funding with their projects. There is information on the website which gives the details about my projects, but it’s in German, so here is a translated version of the text.

Moonflow Entertainment is a company targeting people of all ages who are interested in Japanese Culture such as Anime, Manga, J-music and want to expand their knowledge and love for Japan. The primary objective of Moonflow Entertainment is to promote and support projects related to Japan, but also bring the community closer together.

We also wish support the people interested in Japanese culture and connect them with other people and cultures, the international outlook, the tolerance in all areas and international understanding.

Furthermore we produce media content in the audio-visual sector and in the form of printed media as well as online appearances to promote these projects. Thus we support the merger of the projects and communities of interest.

The biggest projects of Moonflow Entertainment, as of now, are Moonflow, Oshimen(-VOD) and AIDOL.

Moonflow is a German WebTV-Channel, the first in the German anime convention scene which mainly deals with Asian Youth Culture. The topics are wide-ranging: Asian music, Asian Movies, Games, Anime & Manga. Moonflow’s speciality is, among others, to deliver the convention feeling to the viewer at home, right into their living room. The live coverages are a wide variety of events to ensure that the audience is right there, even though they are at home. From show/act performances to interviews with well-known celebrities from the scene, the viewer always sits front-row, with the feeling “Being with friends”.
A big milestone was set by the Moonflow-Team on Dokomi 2010, with the live broadcast of the stage program mixed with self-produced shows, that was a premiere in the German anime convention scene.
Also there are several formats planned in 2014 to promote certain topics even more, than before.

The project Oshimen is to act as a German Community themed about Japanese Idols. However, it currently serves as a platform for news about the idol world. More features are planned to be launched soon. These will be various community functions, as well as a database with lots of Information about people, singles, albums and more. Furthermore, Oshimen-VOD is also a sub-project of Oshimen, to replace VID48 as a Video on Demand platform for Idol-Videos to support the fandom and spread the love.

AIDOL is a international project, which was freshly added to Moonflow Entertainment. As a fansubbing team AIDOL works as a connection between Idol fans and the groups themselves through appropriate localization of visual media by subtitles. Just like this, the AIDOL-Team bring the Idol Fans greater access to the Japanese Entertainment.

Another Project, being a premiere is the first Radio Show about Japanese Idols and Music, Wota Now. On February 2013, the first broadcast of the 2 hours long Show about J-Idols and J-Music started on the internet radio channel Kibo.FM. On March 2014 Wota Now will start its seconds season and its second year of broadcast.

Obviously it would benefit everyone as it would enable the Oshimen project to not worry about costs involved if bandwidth usage is heavy and costs for running it increase etc. It would also allow AIDOL to organise future giveaway competitions and if you guys were interested perhaps some merch like T-Shirts… who knows!

It would be appreciated if you could vote for us. Thank you all for your continued support, really you guys are all awesome.

The new VID48 will come to you soon, but needs your help!


So i’m still in the middle of coding down the Website for the new Streaming Service. But because i got a few messages on Facebook and emails already asking for how people can help with donations and such.

So I’d like to direct everyone who likes to donate for the new service over to gofundme – I made a page there. The goal is to raise 1250€. Even if we don’t reach that amount, I’ll still get the project going, but i’d be happy with every donation i can get so i’m not pushing it alone.

I’ll try my best to satisfy your needs. I hope i can start a beta phase after this weekend. Lets see how much we can raise until then. Lets show everyone how awesome this Community is and how huge the power is to get something started!

For donation please go here:

I’ll give a later update for the users who like to participate as uploaders. For any other news about the project like the OshimenVOD Facebookpage:

Thank you everyone – I hope i won’t let you down and deliver something pretty cool for you all!


PS: The minimum donation amount is 5 Euro – i didn’t know that before, but i think 5 Euro won’t hurt. If you can’t donate but plan on buying things on CDJapan, you can also help me with clicking the following link before your purchase:

A little something about requests


Hey Guys and Girls!
First and foremost I’d like to thank you all for your support and interest in AIDOL subs!

We constantly get a LOT of requests from you guys across various platforms (Facebook comments and messages, Tumblr Asks, the website chat, Twitter and even PMs to members of AIDOL). We try to reply to these if we can, but if we don’t reply to you it’s nothing personal – we’re just busy with other things, you know?
Please understand that we’re just a small group, and we work as hard as we can to provide good quality subtitles for everything we release.
As many of you know we are always working on AKBINGO episodes, and we generally try to follow an order of old and newer episodes. There are too many episodes for us to keep up with though so we will always be behind on this, it can’t be helped. We are always looking for good translators who can help us contribute to the work, but it’s hard to find them – so if you know anyone, do put them in touch with us!

When it comes to requests, we don’t take any because we don’t feel it would be fair to honour the request of one person but reject the request of someone else… because of this we can’t take any requests at all.

We’re all fans ourselves so we do follow what is being released and if we feel it would be a popular release, we will sub it. By popular we try to consider both old and new fans, so it’s something where people who are new to AKB can still learn and enjoy by watching it, but long term fans can still enjoy too!
I’d really like to thank you all for your support again though, we love reading your comments and messages about shows etc. We really do read these things and it means so much to us. So please do continue to support us, but please understand that we like to hear other things than “Sub this…” or “Release the next AKBINGO”. Really… we’re working on it, but our staff all have studies, jobs and lives to live. We do our best!
Please continue to support us, we love you all.

Thank you!
Also, just a reminder, we had a new website address which is, along with this we also have a new contact address which is
You can also contact us through our social networking sites!

TL;DR: Thanks for the support, but we really can’t do requests, sorry!
