Back to the Known

As promised I am working on Burn Up Excess in all seriousness this time around, got the first couple episodes encoded and handed off to marimar for further sub processing. If we are lucky releases should start coming out soon.

Thank you for your time, and I apologize that this show took so SOOOOOOOOO long to actually get started on.

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.

Nazo no Kanojo X OVA v2

Do you want moar???

So here is our first v2 release from the Phase 2 projects. :3

This show is quite a pleaser if you get my drift. Old style art with a contemporary setting plus an über cute main female character equals win in my book.

We will also be doing the BDs for the TV show which are currently in the later stages of scripting by The_Profileth.

With no further ado, you can get the release from here. ‘Til next time cowboy~

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

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~

Release Schedule Update

^Indeed^

Ok so now that I am back from my lovely excursion I can get back to work, unfortunately marimar is a bit more busty busy than usual so unfortunately the Idol Project releases have been a bit delayed, as we did plan to get them out last week.

Either way I plan on moving forward with Softenni and that means I will focus more on making more timely releases with it.

I will get started on my v2 of Dirty Pair OVA as soon as OZC finishes syncing the audio for the remaining episodes.

Ah yes, I will continue to work on more of the Slayers OVA’s after I get Softenni finished, which shouldn’t take that long.

What else, oh yes, I plan to do a v2 of Kyouran Kazoku Nikki as soon as I get the first iso which I apparently deleted/lost/IDK???

Idol Project Episode 2

It continues...

And here comes episode 2. Episode 3 & 4 will probably come out together in the next week or so.

On a second note, this show is actually pretty good. It’s a bit ecchi at some parts but I’m really liking the art style.

Without further ado, you can download from here.

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
