Banners

With the help of TheProfileth, I’m now working on adding some new banners to the site. I didn’t do such a great job with the text on some of them, so TheProfileth will be working on those. Since these are still a work in progress, most are bound to be replaced and we may end up even trashing some of them. More banners will be uploaded in the near future.

You can see view all the current ones here.

New Show

Demonbane

Lovely show that I will be doing, currently only an encode from zero raws that is a 120fps divx  with 120KB/s mp3 audio. I thanks to torque have managed to get all of the dvds for this show, and such I will be doing it.

I will be using high quality AAC for this since the FLAC is HUGE like 120-160MB per episode, there will be an optional FLAC download for those that want it.

One idea I had for this show, was to just encode it and then find a translator, or I could go the normal route and just grab dmonhiro’s subs and maybe do some editing and typesetting when I feel like it. Regardless I will have the sole quality encode available, and I will finish encoding it within 4 months.

Back and Dirty Pair OVA v2

I am back and I bring news

v2 of Dirty Pair OVA episode 1 is out, go download it

Download Here

Sorry messing up on it, I had to fix the subs not loading, the incorrect aspect ratio was displaying and the tea kettle was boiling over. But all of that is fixed now, much of which I would not of noticed if tl_dr (yes that is his name) did not point it out to me. And I would like to thank him deeply for his help.

In other news, Dirty Pair OVA episode 2 will be coming out very soon, probably today.

Also, new on Penguin, once again tl_dr has provided help in syncing episode 1′s subs and has been helpful in pointing out other issues in his QCing process. So look forward to more Penguin coming out in the near-ish future.

I am just going to pretend the tl_dr is actually part of our group, might as well be, since he has been extremely helpful, not to mention he is very interesting to talk with and quite knowledgeable.

RECRUITING: ALL POSITIONS

We are most in need of a Japanese -> English translator as well as QCers, but are also recruiting for all other positions. Beginners may apply, we are willing to teach. However, if you are interested in timing, karaoke, or translating, then you must already have experience and know what you are doing.

To apply, leave a message on our forum with the following information:

  • Contact info (Either leave your email address or we’ll PM you on the forum)
  • Position you’re applying for
  • Summary of your experience
  • Groups you’ve worked for
  • Realistic estimate of your availability
  • Brief description of yourself

Alternatively, you can just stop by our IRC channel and speak with TheProfileth or Sashamaru for more information.

We’ll be right back after these messages

I am gonna be gone this week.

I will be back on Friday.

This should give Sashamaru some time to catch up on syncing Dirty Pair.

Enjoy your break from me ;)

Dirty Pair OVA episode 1 released

Episode 1 is uploading as I speak, should be downloadable in a few minutes

English dub syncing is thanks to Sashamaru.

We love him <3

Release Progress

It is so hard to satisfy Yuri, much to Kei’s frustration

Speeching of sexual inadequacies, Dirty Pair (the OVA series) is being encoded, I currently have 5 episodes done, Sashamaru is working on syncing the English dub to the video since there are some things that get in the way of it syncing easily.  After he syncs each episode and I finish watching them then I will release them, so expect atleast 1 episode per week, that of course is the lowest possible amount but it is a number atleast.

Another note

This show has Jessica Calvello in it, she plays Yuri and does a great job and Pamela Lauer does an amazing job as  Kei. They have really good chemistry and are definitely worth listening to.

Isekai episode 3

Isekai episode 3 is being uploaded now

My thoughts on group transparency

Now some of you might of thought that I was going to talk about video transparency but you are sorely mistaken. I am going to talk about my ideas about group transparency or how open I am with the “public” about the interworkings of my group.

1st off

I have over time come to reach a level of self confidence and a questionable if not comical sense of regarding to my self with ostentatious; thus culminating in the idea that I don’t need to hide my scripts from people.

IF asked for I will produce the following:

  • Where I got my source
  • Comparison shots against the source or any other encode
  • My avisynth script
  • The filters for my avisynth script
  • a direct download link
  • Wisdom about why I chose  filter(s) x,y and z and my x264 settings

2nd off

If I get hard to find or rare sources I will release them back into the internets from whence they came, provided that they are not licensed by Funi or other such (hilarious)  reputable licencees.

Releases and updates :Updated

So this being the first post since the state of the group address, I think I will again blame Sashamaru for taking out the function to make paragraphs. I will try to keep this short. Dirty Pair TV episodes 1-5 are out, episodes 3-5 may have issues with the subs, probably not but just a warning since I did not watch them yet, but I did at least manually go through them and look for errors and spelling issues.

I am gonna get Isekai episode 3 going and some other stuff. Still sort of indecisive on what project I should go full force with now that I have finished Kyouran.


:Update:

I forgot that I wanted to mention a few other things. I will be releasing Canaan in 2 versions, one with FLAC on english and japanese and one with a  AAC audio track with mainconcept’s high quality AAC converter for both. This should keep the file size from being super huge for a 720p encode, as the FLAC are about 250MB each and the video is around 400-600MB normally. I will be releasing more Penguin Musume Heart as well and I think I found someone who can help fix the *timing issue on the first episode.

*Ironically I am apparently the only person who does not see a timing problem on the first episode, maybe I am just awesome like that.
