Movie will be out on DVD/BD on July 18th. The bad subbers will have the movie out by the 19th/20th (those being Crunchysubs and Horriblesubs). The good ones will take a few more days and do it right. Maybe Doki will do it. I hope they do.

You'd expect nothing else from the series but... Mediocrity? Yet you seem to be obsessed with The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, the Anime that contains the most notorious filler in the history of Anime, "the endless eight"?
I really hope both versions get subbed :<, there is the limited edition and the regular. The limited gives 40 more minutes of movie that makes it rounded to about 2 and a half hours of K-ON to fap to :'D ( jk ). But yeah let's hope that gets subbed over the regular first.
Accidentally I stumble upon this thread and it appears that it's only 2 days until the release! But considering the time in Japan it's only 1 day!

Seriously? I'm sorry, but who the f*ck is gonna buy the regular edition?! And who and why would you sub it? Maybe a better question: Why would they release it?
I guess you are all misunderstanding the Limited Edition. From how I understand the ANN article, the movie itself is the same in both editions, it's just the limited edition contains 140 minutes of additional extra material, which is nevertheless not the movie itself.
But if it turns out that there will really be two versions of the movie - why would anyone want to watch or sub the shorter one? For the sake of completeness. For much of the same reasons that both original and extended editions of The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy are in circulation, and Star Wars fans eagerly desire re-releasing the untouched editions from 70s and 80s.

You'd probably understand Russian better.
The point is that I am studying Japanese, and I do understand quite a bit, but by no means enough to watch the whole movie raw. But with Google Translate's subs I might be able to get enough of an idea what a line is about.
Yes, so would thier ratings suggest. I wonder how long an actual English translation will take. I remember there was a subbed camrip for the Haruhi movie, and someone just put those subs on the raws the day it came out, but I guess that hasn't happened here. Getting my hopes up for today was a mistake, I guess.
Maybe people don't feel like doing moe after so much moe the last few years. Though K-ON was one of the first shows doing it in such a extensive way if I'm right. Or maybe Haruhi was just more popular. Or they are waiting for the BD raw to show up.
I'm actually just making something up, I have no idea.
I think you should actually try watching it raw. It is a really great way to practice your language skills - and K-On isn't really that demanding linguistically. Just try, you may get surprised about how much you'll actually understand :)

Indeed, I watched it raw and it was just fine. Of course I did miss a good amount of the dialogue, but watching it as it is now and a second time with subtitles in a few days is the best way to go about it.
Guys chill yo nips, we can't just shit subs out in a day. The movie's a lot of work to do it nicely, and it took the TL like 4 hours to do 30 minutes of it. Songs are done, raws being downloaded, give it a couple more days and be patient!
I get it now. Fansub needs nice quality raw to subbed( which usually come from DVD). And the interval between the airing date and the DVD release is more than a half year. That's explain why K-ON Movie subs are sprouting this months.
If you're rich enough, you can watch its English sub faster than anyone
