The end of this episode was pretty HHNNNGGGHHH.
This week was rough. Usual encoder suddenly disappeared on me, and commander`A saved us all by encoding. Also, I am a retarded loser for forgetting to credit Kusion, who timed the episode (not commander`A, he was busy encoding), and pretty much single-handedly saved our script from certain doom by pointing out random typos. Even though everyone slaved away to make up for lost time, we released… approximately two hours later than we did last week. Oh well.

    Minor mistake, but maybe consider getting a second QC.
    Those are ridiculously easy to get anyway.

  19. souless on July 9, 2010 at 8:23 am said:

    I have a feeling this might come in handy:
    Not really spoiler, but you’ll understand after watching ep.

  20. runedot,
    Here’s the fixed script I encoded the XviD with earlier on today before I fell asleep. We picked up that mistake like 15mins after release lol but thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good episode, the end made me lol though

    Complete contradiction form 5 mins previous xD.

    Ouch. I think I’m at least partially to blame for that one. The original line was “So I’m taking a bed”, and if I remember correctly, I suggested it be changed to “So I’m borrowing a bed”. Oh well, with as many lines as this show has, it’s probably a good thing if we get off with only one error. >_<

  23. [spoiler]
    So far I’m putting my hopes on this girl, Ai. She’s the one that Morishima-senpai talks to during swimming practice.
    She is a junior and oh so ?adorable????

  24. Ershin on July 9, 2010 at 9:20 am said:

    Good taste, ar. I’m liking her, Miya’s friend (can’t remember her name, but yay twintails!), Rihoko, and of course, Miya herself. ^_^

  25. runedot on July 9, 2010 at 9:26 am said:

    In my view, correct translation (which includes not localising to the extent the original line is lost in translation) is far more important than spelling/grammar, and you guys nail the first and do well on the latter (very well, if speed is considered), so good work.
    It’s just that I don’t see a ‘dedicated’ QC on your staff roster (one who probably isn’t bored of working on the script because they’ve been involved in some past step), and I’m guessing only one of your editors works on each episode, so getting a QC might help lower the error rate.

    There are some problems with the kanji typesetting.

    I said this previously, not sure if you saw this…

    haruka is HAWT !!!!

  28. Still a awesome release.. Great video quality.. Good flow.. As expected from UTW.. your work is appreciated.

  29. runedot,
    We do what we call “clusterfuck qc”~. The whole group (who is around) checks the script and looks for errors, but yeah things still get missed even with multiple QC passes. I’ve even missed stuff watching the subs muxed before, it happens. I guess being in a rush for time doesn’t help the situation out, and having worked on something for 6+ hours straight.
    We did try our best to catch what we could though, but somehow something always manages to slip past!

  30. Geese1 on July 9, 2010 at 3:58 pm said:

    Thanks for the new release!

  31. Lommi on July 9, 2010 at 8:01 pm said:

    I love Kusion. “Its guylove”

  32. ukato on July 9, 2010 at 11:12 pm said:

    Hi guys, thanks heaps for your release, i MUCH prefer yours over Eclipse’s !!! (>^.^)>
    However, i’ve got a question – did you guys purposely take out the Kanji+Hiragana from the OP and ED? Coz you had it in ep1 and i was just wondering…?
    Thanks again for the awesome ep!! ^.^

  33. ukato,
    This has the kanji in it. The Kana was removed for compatibility sake or something I believe. Anyway i’ve put the font + script with kana in it at the link above if you want to mux it yourself.

  34. Good job, Kusion! Here, I even brought some vaseline so you can take up Raze’s butt-love offer. Just remember to post pics ๐Ÿ˜€
    I’d even say good translation means *no* localisation. Fullstop.

  35. Psycho on July 10, 2010 at 1:54 am said:

    Did anyone noticed? Audio in ep 2 after commercial break is a bit strange. It is around 12:30 ’till end. I feel like hearing MP3 with 64 kbps bit rate. I also compared it with ep 1. Please someone confirm this, is this just my feeling or others also got the same problem.

  36. Psycho,
    It’s the source or the stream, the problem is out of our hands though. If anything I’d say personally it’s the source audio from the studio since all they do on broadcast is encode it to AAC as far as I know.

  37. ukato on July 10, 2010 at 7:43 am said:

    Cool, thanks for the kana’d script! ^^
    Btw just wondering, so is the kana going to be left out of future eps as well for the compatibility issue?
    Thanks, and look forward to your release next week ๐Ÿ˜€

  38. ukato,
    Probably for the x264 release, but I’ll be encoding the XviD with the kana included. Which means I’ll have to retime it anyway and I usually mux it for my own personal archive too so it’s not really any effort throwing a retimed script up each week.

  39. runedot on July 10, 2010 at 10:31 am said:

    Haha, โ€œclusterfuck qcโ€
    I’d also be wary of having too many QC, because I know I do lazy QC when that happens, “if I don’t catch it, someone else will!”
    But whatever works for you guys. I look forward to more of your releases.

  40. ukato on July 10, 2010 at 10:43 am said:

    Ah, i see thanks heaps then, once again ^.^
    So is the “DOWNLOAD SCRIPT: [UTW] Amagami SS โ€“ 02.ass” that’s put up there next to the torrent links for x264 and xvid, the script going to be the one with the Kana or would you have to put up the retimed script separately?
    Thanks once again to you and the UTW – i just saw the ep btw and indeed the ending was HNNNNNNNNGGGGHH

  41. Psycho on July 10, 2010 at 10:46 am said:

    @ar OK, that mean there is nothing wrong with my computer or my codec so I don’t have to get another codec or whatsoever. Thank you for your confirmation.

  42. @ukato,
    I’ll throw you a link to a separate script up if you ask ๐Ÿ™‚ I make one up for the XviD encode anyway. I guess we can probably put a second script up with a special tag on it like Kana_Karaoke or something. I’ll talk with Raze about it when he’s around anyway. If not you can just ask for it and I’ll put a link up.

  43. crest on July 10, 2010 at 12:42 pm said:

    A character in the subtitles during the OP shows up as a box for me. Looking at the script, it’s a music note. What do I need in order to display it properly?

  44. crest,
    What player are you using?
    edit: also try this out for me.
    Change that one line to this:
    Dialogue: 0,0:02:25.24,0:02:30.39,Opening-Romaji,,0000,0000,0000,,{\fad(110,350)}{\k11}{\k30}Ha{\k34}ji{\k31}me{\k33}te {\k31}no {\k31}ki{\k31}mo{\k33}chi {\k38}yo{\k88}{\kf95}{\fe128}?{\fe1}
    Basically just wrap the music note in {\fe} tags. This should force shift-JIS encoding for the music note and it might fix it up.
    Obviously mux the new script into a different mkv and check out if it plays properly or not.
    Let me know, because if it does fix it. I’ll use \fe tags around it from now on.

  45. Not a hater for once. on July 10, 2010 at 3:46 pm said:

    Thank you for the good subtitles and nice video quality.
    Work is appreciated.
    Have a nice day

  46. CherryHawk on July 10, 2010 at 4:55 pm said:

    You guys are doin great, thanks for the releases!

  47. kojika on July 10, 2010 at 6:11 pm said:

    I had exactly the same character display as Crest reported earlier… I’m using MPC-HC (cccp) with CoreAVC Pro. Wrapping the music note in {\fe} tags worked for me.

  48. martinez on July 10, 2010 at 6:43 pm said:

    gracias !!!! gracias !!!!
    thank you very much…..!!!
    the last part is so…..adorable….^^

  49. @kojika,
    Awesome! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll wrap the onpu in {\fe} tags from now on in that case!

  50. Richard on July 11, 2010 at 1:03 am said:

    Was it only me because my one had some small glitches at the beginning other then that all epic nice work thankz

  51. crest on July 11, 2010 at 4:52 am said:

    I edited the script as you suggested, also using MPC-HC and coreavc, and it worked, thanks.

  52. MilkyWay on July 11, 2010 at 12:19 pm said:

    thx for the release, but can you please add a tag to this post I’m using feeds and now it’s no shown in the Amagami ss feed.

  53. Ershin on July 11, 2010 at 12:37 pm said:

    Tags added. It seems that Raze simply forgot. Sorry for any inconvenience everyone, and thank you for bringing it to our attention, MilkyWay.

  54. MilkyWay on July 11, 2010 at 2:47 pm said:

    SWEET thx for the fast fix :3

  55. Nancydrew on August 27, 2010 at 2:33 pm said:

    thank you so much!

  56. akiyamawins on July 21, 2011 at 9:39 pm said:

    Hi, I also noticed the glitching/frame corruption on my file too >.<
    I just wanted to ask if any of the staff at UTW could please take a look at the mkv file posted here, and if its okay with any one who can manage, to fix any noticeable damage (the aforementioned frame corruption, I don't know what else to call it sorry) on the file. I'm kinda stubborn and I feel if I leave to another fansubbing service I'm betraying UTW's hard work xP.
    Anyways, thank you UTW for posting THE BEST Amagami SS fansubs ever! ;D

  57. akiyamawins on July 21, 2011 at 9:44 pm said:

    I forgot to mention that it was the DDL mkv link to MU, if that helps at all.
