Dual-Duality is going on hiatus

Basically I am going on break for a while, until I can actually start devoting more time to releasing things and such. The main reason that I am doing this is because well, nobody is working on stuff, including me so basically nothing is getting done and nothing is being released so we aren’t really much of a group now are we? I am not dissolving the group I am simply saying that for now, just expect the exact same thing you have been from us that you have always been expecting, nothing. I will try to stay in contact for the time being.

Well that month went by quick

Sorry guys, been a bit busy as of late, not to mention the fucktons™ of setbacks and issues that have basically halted all our releases. But who cares about that, time to actually get started on things. I think, I, personally am gonna take from encoding BD’s and hand those off to marimar and such so that I can now focus on DVDs and first up is Burn Up Excess. That is all.

Dramaticum Rectangulorum! aka Dual-Duality: Phase 2

marimar x The_Profileth x Sashamaru v0.422

Hey everyone~ Here is the promised update on everything and anything Dual-Duality. With a few projects under our belt, and a few currently on the works, we are now confident to announce the upcoming projects for the next few months. I also wanted to explain the difference between Dual-Duality and C.U.T.E. releases since you’ll be seeing both in the next few months. The_Profileth structured the group so that different group names could be tagged with a specific type of release done by Dual-Duality. While Dual-Duality is the release group to look for the best available dual audio DVD/BD releases, C.U.T.E. is the release group you should associate with the best available single audio DVD/BD releases. We have a third release group, Xenophile, which will aim to provide the best available dub only releases; of course, we *NEED* staff in order to expand our portfolio to such areas. We should note that for the last few years, Dual-Duality has been mostly a one-man group with help from some but not long lasting individuals. If you think you can contribute to our cause, feel free to catch us in IRC or leave us a comment. Trust me, we *NEED* you; we really do. ;) Now, on to the news you’ve been waiting to hear. Read more

Status Update

marimarxThe_Profileth v0.04

Hi everyone. So we heard you like to have your updates update you on upcoming updates while updating on the previous updates…

So, we’ve been holding off on the Idol Project batch in hopes that any errors would be pointed out but it seems there weren’t many. Two issues were already brought up and will be fixed for the batch: I will be adding padding to the subs and fix the number “1″ in the font used since it looked like roman numeral one. Thank you YuSaKu and rarely_upset. The batch should be released this upcoming week so if there are any errors you spotted, please let us know preferably before Monday.

Softenni episode 3 is also being worked on and should hopefully be released next week. We will be doing 4 episode batches once we reach the 4th, 8th, and 12th episode. The first batch will include new versions for episodes 1-2 since I was not present at the time and The_Profileth fails at shifting times and fixing/adding TSing :3

In other, more important news, there will be a big announcement on the status of releases for Dual-Duality and its sister group C.U.T.E within the next week, so stay tuned~

Also, very relevant for the very, very near future: R U ANGEL OR R U DEVUUUUULLLL GGUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRLLLLLL…

Idol Project Episodes 3 & 4

It climaxes and it ends...

And so it concludes. This was a really nice show to work on but it didn’t have much of a lolplot. However, the art was nice and the story was touching enough for an ecchi/idol show. Wish there had been a bit more music but it also would’ve meant more :effort: from my part.  :P

I would also like to thank DmonHiro for TLing some missing lines in one of episode four’s insert songs.

If you find any issues with the release, let us know on IRC or in the comments since we’ll be releasing a complete series batch in ~1-2 weeks. Without further ado, you can download episode 3 here and episode 4 here. Enjoy~

I shall be back

I am going on vacation for a week so until then, please stand by for marimar to do stuff with our backlog

I FUCKED UP YALL!

I heard you liked v2′s, so I put a v2 in your v2 so you can v2 your v2′s while you watch your v2′s. In other words woops, I forgot to tell marimar about the video delay in the Slayers the Movie v2 so the subs got all messed up. Thankfully marimar is super awesome and helped fix the stuff pretty quickly, patches should be up soon. v2 patch download for the movie

So… who is marimar?

marimar x The_Profileth

Well, do you care? Maybe.

Do I care? Not really.

Then why are you making this post? Because The_Profileth’s shinobi way is “doing the most” and I’ve been dragged into his world as of recently.

So, who is marimar? Well, the answer is so simple, it is too difficult to explain so here are a few things to consider: Read more

Slayers OVA -Book of Spells-

Hmm... seconds anybody? :3

Wait, wut? Two releases? Is this a troll?

Why, no, it is not. We present you with Slayers OVA -Book of Spells-. Yet another release we had in the back-burner for quite some time and finally sees the light of day. Didn’t actually believe we were getting stuff done, huh?

On a second note, Dual-Duality is currently recruiting. We are in dire need of timers, typesetters, and OCR specialists.  The_Profileth has actually been getting quite some encoding done and has quite a few things ready to release, including: Burn Up Excess, Kyouran Kazoku Nikki (official final release), and Softenni BDs. These three specifically are stuck at timing. Also, The_Profileth is planning on picking up some recent BDs such as Naze no Kanojo X but we will need more staff to provide you with timely releases for these new projects. If interested, join us at irc://irc.rizon.net/dual-duality or click on the Chat button at the top of the page. Previous experience is preferred for timing and typesetting but none needed to OCR. We are willing to work with you if you are new as long as you are open to learning and are available throughout the week.

Well, with no further ado, download this release here.
