Specials are unsubbed, but shouldn't be an issue at this filesize.

No other 720p encodes with subs out there right now. And pavel-b's bloated 720p raws are about as large as his 1080p ones, at 10.5 GiB vs. 12.5 GiB.

AniDB notes issues in A4E's subs. Do you know if those issues have been fixed?

They weren't.

The only issues I had were due to the SRT subs: signs are messed up. This is somewhat of a problem in episodes 8 and 12, but you don't exactly have any softsubbed alternatives. There is a German release with ASS subs, but… it's German. :p (and uses the same video and the same English SRT track)

EDIT: Corrected sign-heavy episodes.

Are the 1080p rips upscales?

Request screens; only your eyes can be the judge of whether or not they are worth your downloading them.

Actually, disregard that. Even the 720p looks like it's upscaled to me.

It does seem to be upscaled, but it is eons better than the DVDs. Maybe a 480p encode from the BD wouldn't be a bad idea.

I support this idea as well -- this anime is long-overdue for an upgrade from the old a4e/V-A rips. And if anyone wants the AC3 English audio tracks from the R1 DVDs, let me know and I can attempt to obtain them.

Why on earth would you want that? The main reason you can't scale DVDs much higher than SD resolutions is all the ugly mpeg junk (and dirt, which for all intents and purposes has to be considered "detail"). Why limit yourself to those silly constraints when working from a much cleaner, or much more :cleanable: BD source? A studio scaling of lossless masters is leagues above what you, with any software, let alone your playback solution, could possibly accomplish. This is of course an exercise in hypotheticals, as (correct me if I'm wrong) the BDs for this show were never actually uploaded.

Huh? He's talking about an SD encode from the BD source.

You are wrong. They were.

I would also say that it is a better idea to encode it in HD, at least at 720p. The bitrate cost wouldn't be huge at all, and he is right that it would significantly improve the look when being watched, because any compression effects won't be as pronounced. This is a fairly good upscale, downscaling it back would be contraproductive (if allw e care about is the quality).

Of course, it's not like BDMVs can only be encoded only once at only one resolution. If the source is worth 720p, great, as that bucks the trend of these BDs of early/mid-00s shows being no better than or worse than DVD. But if someone's willing to encode them at 480, it would be nice to have a low-res version that wasn't encoded in 2005 with DivX/XviD and bitrate-starved audio at CD-R/3 filesizes.

I was under the impression the proposition was for an SD-only BD release, which seemed silly to me. It makes plenty of sense from a wanting to replace old DVD encode point of view.

And it's good to hear these were actually uploaded.

Found it without specials on Nyaa id #367540, but slow.
I see no seeders on this release so far, so it shoubd help until original seeder is back.
Up @ ~400kb/s, well if i wasn't getting it @ 40-50 :s
Could someone join me to help out?
Edit: Raw Specials out from torrent id #314124 on nyaa, getting then seeding them too

I thought this anime was licensed.  I guess I thought wrong.   :thumbsup:

I guess it's a good time to download it and watch it.

Wondering what the sub quality is like, never heard of the group before and never seen any of their other releases. So I'm thinking it might be better sticking with [Ani-Kraze] subs. ?

It was as well as it made a appearance for a few years on the old Cartoon Networks' [adult swim] anime programming line up on US cable TV some years ago.  This was way before that TV programming block became Toonami again as it is currently.  It was also one of the few titles from the old Geneon US licensed anime that wasn't "rescued" or picked up by other companies, so yeah, the North American license for this anime is expired and the R1 DVDs are out of print since we all know that Geneon's US division has been defect since 2007-2008.

The subs are from the official R1 DVDs since they're using subs from A4E's version and A4E's version is a DVD-rip of the R1 DVDs.   I don't know about the video source for RUELL-Subs version since it may well be from Japanese Blu-Rays since it is reported to be 720p although up-scaled from 480p.  From what I remember of the R1 DVDs of this, the official R1 English subs as well the English dubs was quite good and the R1 subs is almost like the fan-subs except that they changed "shounen bat" to "lil slugger" on official R1 subs and scripts.  The old Ani-Kraze version is a old "fan-sub" from a recorded TV video source just like the few groups that actually fan-subbed this back in 2004 when this anime first aired on Japanese TV.

FYI, I've seen Ani-Kraze's version of this as well as AnimeOne's version and the official R1 DVDs as well the the short lived [adult swim] US cable TV broadcast of this some years ago.

It uses official R1 subs, taken from the a4e release specifically. The only real defect is that they are unstyled SRT subs, which can get confusing to read during a few scenes. (mostly during episode 6)

^Not to mention that THIS is NOT dual audio unlike the A4E's R1 DVD-rips of this anime series.  This one is Japanese audio with English subtitles only.

Having heard the English Dubs of this on the official R1 DVDs it wasn't ear shattering bad nor was it "emotionless" as far as I can recall.  I am not a "dub hater" nor am I a native Japanese language person so this was one of the few good decent English dubs I've actually thought that they did a very good job on.

.......and yes, I am a fan of Satoshi Kon's anime works.
