[ HONOBONO ] Honobono is a Japanese word for "a tender feeling," "a tender affection," "a warm glowing in the heart."

We are a fansubbing group with experienced staff for "deep" anime fans. We don't go for superficial excitement such as violence, action dramas, killings, enormous robots, etc. We do not deny the value of such animes, and we are fully aware that such animes are more popular and more wanted. However what we are going to sub and introduce is another kind of anime: Not so sensational but lovely. Simple but thought-provoking like a haiku. Not so well-known but exquisite, eccentric and funny.

What's Honobono?

[ HONOBONO ]

Honobono is the Japanese word for "a tender feeling", "a tender affection", or "a warm glowing in the heart."

We are a fansubbing group with an experienced staff, dedicated to producing animes for those with an esoteric taste. We do not support superficial excitement such as violence, action dramas, killings, enormous robots, etc. We do not deny the value of such animes, and we are fully aware that such animes are more popular and more in demand. However, we will be subbing and introducing a different genre of anime: less sensational, but lovely. Simple, but thought provoking like a haiku, unfamiliar but exquisite in its eccentricity and humor. ( 2 Sept 2002 )
