Logo Contest Winner! + Update + Motto?

Logo Contest Winner! + Update + Motto?

After seeing the result of the poll.. is there really a reason to keep it open any longer? I think the winner is pretty clear XD.

With that said... Congratulations to Masat01 for his incredible logo design skills and winning our contest! You guys can check out his blog here:

Now I've noticed that this logo looks the coolest when it has a motto on it... but I suck at thinking of mottos. So why don't you guys help me? Comment below on what you think is a good motto for this site. I'm not making this an actual contest, but it will be replacing the "HD Anime" part of the logo, so the best prize I can offer is the feeling of having a part of you forever embedded into the site :P

I'm also going to throw in an update in this post since we haven't done one in a while are people are starting ask where everything is.

First of all.. here's the priority list as of right now:

  1. Clannad ~After Story~
  2. To Aru Majutsu no Index II
  3. Lucky Star
  4. Shiki
  5. Toshokan Re-release
  6. Other ongoing shows

Notice that Haruhi is NOT on that list. This is because it isn't exactly on top priority for us, and it never was. It has always been and always will be something we're working on during our free time.

Another project to mention is Rin. I have no idea on the status of this project... because ITHORA might as well be considered on leave. So, I have absolutely no ETA on that.

I realize that Index II has 12 episodes out now, and because of that I have moved it to the second highest priority so that we can get that half-batch out as soon as possible. Also with Index, I may turn it into a 720p only project, as the 1080p quality is disappointing me more and more every day. I'll keep you guys updated on this.

In the last update I opened up the comments to suggestions for future projects. I want to let everyone know that we have considered each and every one of them. The ones that we have planned and are in our wishlist are on the bottom of our projects page under the section "Planned/Wishlist".

That's about it as far as updates go. If you have an idea for a motto or slogan for us, please comment below!

Lastly, I'd like to give a special thanks to Vox for creating a new easier patching system for our releases. The K-ON!! patch will be the first one to feature this technology. The new style of patching will make it much easier for users to perform a seamless upgrade to our v2 versions. No more batch files, no more xdelta XD.

Elysium Subs

"HD Anime at Its Best"


"The Best Place for HD Anime"
# Anonymous | 2011-06-19 13:38
I have to say I like "HD Anime" as well. Although, maybe you could embellish it a little, e.g. "The #1 site for HD anime" or "Your go-to source for HD anime." Something like that.
# choco | 2011-06-18 16:23
I dun have any good idea now... so
For the heck of your eccHi-Desire source
For the heck of your ecchi-desire /HD/ source
It's supposed to be a joke, please dun get mad. I may have a better idea next time.
# Ametatsu | 2011-06-18 16:24
Oh im mad.... very mad :P
# choco | 2011-06-18 16:25
I used wrong code to format the text:
- For the heck of your eccHi-Desire source
- For the heck of your ecchi-desire /HD/ source
# suomynonA | 2011-06-13 01:23
Try something Papa John's-esque... ;)

Better Subs. Better Anime. Elysium.
# Rigggg | 2011-06-12 08:35
Index II is 2nd on your priority list? I couldn't be happier! :D

(Make it look pretty like Railgun guys!)
# Dan | 2011-06-11 21:37
How about "Elysium subs- Only Premium Stuff"?

The Best Site - Your First Choice
# purple | 2011-06-09 12:30
I also agree on the "motto" staying as "HD Anime". Nothing flashy or silly.

But if you really need one, go with "THE BEST". Flashy and silly.
# DExM | 2011-06-06 23:14
While I am aware that JC Staff is well known for extremely crappy BDs, what confuses me is the Railgun 1080p encode didn't look too bad. Were those in surprising good quality, or..?

As for a motto, cliche but true, "Only the best". Alternately, "Quality you can't taste", "Quality. Nothing but.", or even just simply, "Quality". ("Quarity"?) I'd come up with something related to Elysium, but I'm don't know what it means.

Sorry, I"m not feeling too clever right now.
# kamineko | 2011-06-06 10:39
The motto should be: "HD Anime".

Yes, that's it. Leave it at that. That's what I thought before seeing the replies, and after seeing them, I think that even more.

"HD Anime" says it all. I really can't see possible improvements which don't sound retarded or like corporate bullshit (sorry, guys ^^)

Yeah, I agree. "HD Anime" says what this site is about, but then again it's not very unique.
Actually it sounds pretty random. Also, I believe many of the suggestions mentioned here right now (including my own one) are not the perfect solution. But seriously, there are a bunch of site mottos that don't sound that inventive as well (i.e. "THORA - Your true HD Anime source" like, ok, it tells me I'll find HD Anime on this site). So, keep making suggestions.
# kamineko | 2011-06-10 14:57
I have a different approach here. For me, HD Anime is not just telling that you find HD Anime here. For me, "HD Anime" is a stronger statement than "Your true HD Anime source" or whatever. It's like in the joke with the three pizza bakers in one street: One pizza shop has a billboard with "Best pizza in town!", the adjacent one has "Best pizza in the country!", the third one simply says: "Best pizza in this street." Now guess where people go...

Obviously, this only works because the site design reinforces it. You look at a well thought-out design, and therefore the understatement works. Wouldn't work with a crap design where you suspect bad quality from the start...
# Yottsu | 2011-06-11 01:33
Well, I don't think a mediocre site design implies that the quality of the animes offered is crappy. For instance, look at Coalgirls. Site design could me massively improved imho, but I don't care, as long as their releases are awesome. So, no. I don't expect bad quality just by looking at the design. Also, since there are not too many groups constantly releasing 1080p or just 720p Blu Ray stuff (Coalgirls, Kira, maybe Doki), there's not much of a competition imo. Especially because their projects differ a lot.

As for your example with the pizza bakers, I understand what you are trying to say. But as I already said. I don't believe there's a seriuos competition in the HD anime sector and people are happy with what they get. Anyways, I still think "HD Anime" is too meaningless. ^_^
# Yottsu | 2011-06-06 10:01
My suggestion on your motto:

Legendary Quality - Cause you deserve nothing less!
# RZ 1 | 2011-06-06 07:14
first of all it´s a great logo ^^ good job Masat01

I have 2 ideas as a motto:
"elysiumsubs , welcome to the world of HD Animes"
"Your Animes, Our Subs"
i know they are bad, but maybe it will inspire someone else to write a better motto ^^
# masat01 | 2011-06-07 17:30
# Sheidow | 2011-06-06 06:24
I'm not that great with motto's either but here's my two cents -
"Best Anime, Best Quality, Best Size"
# Sayer | 2011-06-06 05:48
You could just check out for their release -_-
# Snoopy | 2011-06-06 22:36
Quoting Sayer:

They had a typo in the first episode. I'm looking for perfect, not perfect-enough.
# something | 2011-06-07 16:53
Not to mention their sub placement was too low. I know it can be shifted but still... it's too low!
# Snoopy | 2011-06-05 18:44
Why isn't Haruhi a top priority? I don't really understand that.

I know you already have a 1080p for Haruhi, but you've always been going on about how it's basically the worst project on this site, and how we should totally wait for the 720p version. There aren't that many good Haruhis out there, a lot of people are waiting on this group to put out a proper Haruhi. It absolutely should be a top priority.
# TexKlanZ | 2011-06-05 17:34
To think that coming up with a good slogan sure is hard. (It took me two hours to come up with just a better one). X_X

Here you go. I hope you like it. ^_^

"We do it. You believe it."

P.S. I'm still thinking up some more. d-(^_^)-b
