A bit of fansub history here.
Probably of interest to only a select group of people (for best overall quality I would recommend the Anime-Legion release), but still...

(Psst, Zalis...)  :-P

could you elaborate a bit about whether or not those fansubs are worth the archival? like stunning difference to the "dubtitles"?

Well, the quality of the subs (insofar as I'm qualified to judge that...), including the styling, karaoke and signs typesetting, seemed good to me; both dual audio releases currently on BakaBT use the official DVD subs as far as I know. So I'm a bit surprised there's now an apparent requirement for a stunning difference between dvd subs and fansubs, in different categories.
It will take some time to provide comparisons: perhaps Zalis will chip in first, he was the one who requested this fansub and he's usually well informed on the subject. There is no other (suitable for BakaBT) fansubbed release of this anime by the way.

 :thumbsup: Admittedly I don't know much about this release, since it's been so hard to find until now. But as macros says, it is the only fansub version out there. Additionally, it looks like A-K's is the only release with sanely formatted non-vobsub subtitles. None of the R1 rips appear to have .ass/typeset subs -- they all use .srt (fail), vobsubs, or whatever KAA did for their hardsubs. So it's a worthy option both for people who want fansubs and for people who don't like vobsubs. Sure, the A/V quality is lower and it's hardsubbed, but there's always going to be a tradeoff when it comes to Puni Puni Poemi releases. Unless somebody comes along, OCRs the DVD subs, and properly typesets them to .ass softsubs. (No, I don't plan on doing so.)

If clutter is a concern, why not ditch E-D's version? It seems like A-L's is judged to be better despite being XviD, and E-D's is only being kept around for the sake of having an h264 release.

Seems like the translation here is drier, more wordy, and... umm... less funny. So what's the point? :-/

Oh well, I guess some people will like it.

This. I've been saying we should get rid of the E-D version for a while now, all you get over A-L's versions is a load of distracting interlacing and encoding glitches. There's no point having an H.264 version around unless it's better than the best Xvid version.

For archive purposes, just as this deserves its place here, it seems, IMHO, E-D's release as well might be worth keeping it.
For one thing, as Zalis said,it's h264. For another, despite its flaws, I think it is a release that many are familiar with, and that will keep a wide pool of seeders.
Admittedly, the same seeders could upload it somewhere else, but still, it's a release that is somehow linked to the Puni Puni Poemi history of subbing, so it might be regarded as worthy of archiving on bbt, just for that reason.
Plus there is currently no other B group alternative. And although bbt does not have to get a B group, why delete it, if the afore mentioned reasons to keep it make (even nothing more than a little) sense?...
PS: sorry Lillymon, although I concur with your statement (E-D's not better than A-L's, that's a given) I had to point out other reasons to keep E-D's release...Reasons that may be insufficient, if all pros and cons are pondered, but still reasons that had to be stated.

I am tired of the "But it's H.264!" rationale though. H.264 is not a magic wand. The presence of H.264 does not automatically make an encode better if the encoder doesn't know what they're doing (or just doesn't care) and makes loads of stupid mistakes.

Also, since when has BakaBT had problems keeping any torrent seeded? The bonus point system appears to ensure that even the least popular and most obscure torrents have at least four or five seeders at any given moment.

I do sincerely hope for a competent dual-audio H.264 encode of Puni Puni Poemi someday, just so the broken Exiled-Destiny version can be lost and forgotten.
