|The Sagas Council|
2007 - Present
The Sagas Council is a group that existed from 2007, up until the present. This group was around for just as long as some of the first generation of abridgers, yet were overlooked due to constant username changes. This group has gone through various changes over the years (don't let what people say fool anyone, this group has been around before TeamFourStar under the alias of "DBZAR"). This group is considered to be one of the most hated abridging groups in abridging history.
The Sagas Council started as a group who loved anime, comedy, & the idea of abridging, much like those who start out usually do. The group was around for the prime time of abridging under the alias of DBZAR (which spawned a total of two episodes, a trailer for their third episode, & a special), where they met a lot of different people in the community. Through the ups & downs of the abridged community, the group would give parodying multiple attempts (their very first parody series being a knockoff of Gozar's Alternate Reality Dragon Ball Z in some form before DBZAR), & then settled on a different style of parody, with it's own title known as "Sagas", hence the name of the group becoming "The Sagas Council". The first real attempt at making a series with the term "Sagas" came from HN5353 & his attempt at parodying Dragon Ball GT, in which he garnered a small fanbase by hyping the series through word of mouth, setting people up to do auditions as well as his own friends such as VegetaSasuke0, due to pressure the episode unfortunately did not reach completion & was shelved, but due to that HN5353 decided to try his hand in a Rurouni Kenshin parody, which later became known as Rurouni Kenshin Sagas, which became the group's first big achievement, as it was their first real positive video. Throughout the years, HN5353 had left the group various times after Rurouni Kenshin Sagas due to personal life & disinterest, but claims to always come back with a vengeance. At one point in time, IAmKitsumi tried to overthrow VegetaSasuke0 for control of the Sagas term after HN5353 left. Eventually the group would want to revisit Dragon Ball Z & even set up a channel dedicated to it, the project would simply be entitled "Cell Sagas", though the series had since been in limbo, & is doubtful to ever see the light of day due to casting issues & time constraints.
We Hate The State & Abridging Is Dead
In late 2011, to early of 2012 the group saw a steady decline in new abridgers & abridged series, they took blame at the generation one abridgers like Little Kuriboh, Lanipator, Kaiser Neko, & Takahata101. With all of this going on, they took it upon themselves to make a video called "We Hate The State Of Abridging", which didn't gain much attention, though their second video known as "Abridging Is Dead" (which was published on February19th, 2012) gained so much attention that they didn't know what to do, despite the fact that they tried so hard to get their points across. The group decided that they no longer wanted to call themselves "abridgers", & clarified it wasn't meant to be a hate video or any form of rant video, yet the community took it the wrong way. Though at first the group sent the video around the internet, posting it on other sites such as Facebook (going as far as to post it to the walls of members of TeamFourStar in hopes of a response so that they can also attempt to fix this growing issue). Because of "Abridging Is Dead", the group became the prime targets of hacking attempts by various disgruntled people in the community, though the hackers' details were not released, The Sagas Council had ways around said hackers' methods, but because of this entire situation, they assumed that someone or something had wanted to silence them for speaking out on this growing situation. Much later the group continued making videos despite the growing issues, yet they had done nothing but get dislikes & death threats from the abridged community,
community members going as far as to call them hypocrites, & spoofing their videos. The group later went on to make a TsubasaNoAMVPro diss track called "The TsubasaNoAMVPro Song", as well as an abridged community diss track called "2 Damn Eazy", then went on to make a collection of photoshopped images known as "The Abridged Crops". On May 11th, 2012 the group started a commentary series, doing commentary over other abridged series (starting with Just5Guys' K-On! Abridged). On January 16th, 2017 VegetaSasuke0 returned to making discussion/ranting videos with a video spoofing Donald Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again", & replacing it with term "Make Abridging Great Again", though the matters at hand are very serious, it is very different than the typical rant video, replaced with less of a raging tone, & more of an adult look on the matters at hand. VegetaSasuke0 then went on to send the video to ProfKranc (who does his own type of podcast where he & fellow abridged community members discuss the state of abridging), he mentioned how he was glad that someone else brought up the matter & that it needed to be made, stating that there are a lot of things in it that people need to hear.
After all their rants, The Sagas Council express that they continue to slowly make parodies as often as they can, this includes finishing up their series Gantz Sagas. After Gantz Sagas, they are unsure of what they will do then.
