Batches

January 26, 2012 7 comments

Since all of the DDL links are gone/dead, I’ve decided to make batch torrents for (almost) all of my older releases. Nothing has been updated.

Suzy’s Zoo (1-13; Incomplete): 480p/DVD Batch
Starry Sky (1-26; Complete): 576p Batch
Plastic Nee-san (1-4; Incomplete, See Notices): 360p Batch
Kaichu! (3-4; Complete?): Batch (with 4L)

Stay Tuned For Mimi!

Starry Sky – Batch & v2s

October 22, 2011 4 comments

And with this, we are finally done with Starry Sky! It has certainly been a long journey with a few speed-bumps along the way (lack of raws for a while, audio problems in a few episodes), but we made it to the end!

Credit Roll!
StrawberryMintSubs: Thank you for translating this series!
BlackHakuchou: Thanks for high quality transport streams for a few episodes!
Faraude: Big thanks for the awesome k-timed karaoke and v2 typesetting!

No patches cause I’m too lazy to make 52 patches 😛
(And I hope that I didn’t mess up muxing all of these files :x)

I’ll be focusing on clearing out Suzy 6-13 this coming week, followed by Kaichu 04 next weekend.

Starry Sky – 23-26 (END)

Wow, sorry for the huge delay on this. Various things in life, along with some audio syncing issue in ep23, kinda kept me away from finishing this off. But now it is complete!

A huge thanks to SMS for subbing this show, and to Faraude for the karaoke and v2 typesetting!

Expect a v2 batch next week!

Starry Sky – 21-22

September 7, 2011 11 comments

Scorpio arc. I forgot to apply a couple of styles to the kara in 19-20, but it’s fixed now.

Since I have nothing else to blog about, I guess I’ll announce some of the other projects I have planned:

  1. Psychic Detective Yakumo (HD) – Original airing was on the SD-only channel NHK-BS2, and the DVDs are SD.  However, the later re-airings on NHK-BShi and NHK-BS Premium were HD, so I plan on combining the HD raws with AonE’s script and FFFpeeps’ Karaoke/Typesetting.  Will offer both 720p and 480p.
    Comparison
  2. Guin Saga (HD) (Dual Audio) – Like Yakumo, it was originally aired on BS2 and only had a DVD release.  A later re-airing on NHK-G was HD, and it was also dubbed in the USA.  This show is taking up a ton of space on my HDD because it’s going to be a mixture of a bunch of sources.  The video will be from the HDTV NHK-G airing (720p and 480p), the Japanese audio will be FLAC from the R2 DVDs (AAC for 480p), the English audio will be AC3 from the R1 DVDs (AAC for 480p), and English subtitles from fansubs by AniYoshi and frong (secondary track will just have kara+signs for use with English Dub).
    Comparison
  3. Ryoko’s Case File (DVD) – Now for something completely different!  I plan on using AonE-AnY’s script and some DVDrips that I found, and I’ll track someone down to translate the unsubbed DVD OVA.  There isn’t a whole lot of video quality improvement to be had, but they did correct some animation errors in the DVDs.
    Comparison  #1: different gun  #2: removed pink to the right of the person’s foot.

I haven’t really decided which one to work on first, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Starry Sky – 19-20

September 5, 2011 4 comments

Libra arc, now featuring a k-timed ED courtesy of Faraude! Sadly, we are back to the so-so raws till the final episode.

Delayed a bit because Suzy’s Zoo DVD Vol. 1 came in on Friday. Sadly, the DVD video is a little bit blurry, but has better audio quality and doesn’t have the annoying scrolling text that the TV episodes have. I plan on going through and fixing a couple of mis-translations for 1-10 this week, followed by subs for 11-13 this weekend. Since DVDs are SD, I will only be doing a 480p release (720×480, H264, CRF16, 23.976fps, 192kbps AC3 audio).

Also, I’ll be v2ing most of the first half of Starry Sky (with Faraude’s help), so if anyone wants to see anything changed, please leave a comment.

Virgo arc. Next arc probably won’t be out till Thursday or Friday.

In Suzy’s Zoo news, I’ve received word that DVD Volume 1 has shipped, so I’ll probably get working on it next week.

Now for the Leo arc. I’ll probably start work on Project #4 once Starry Sky is over, since it’s only 13 episodes.
