Too much awesome in this episode. While each section was hilarious in their own right, my personal favorite was Five Ren Cats.

A little tidbit worth mentioning here so you guys get the joke at the last section. The letter H (ecchi, or エッチ) pretty much means sex in Japanese by default. I chose not to include this in a TL note in the episode because the term should be quite familiar to any seasoned anime viewer.

Encoders Note:

[spoiler]This h.264 release is 10-bit, so update your codecs/etc. if necessary or if you haven’t already done so.

The reason this is in 10-bit while the other episodes aren’t is simple; every one of you should be able to watch softsubbed 10-bit 480p regardless of what CPU you have. If for some reason you can’t or refuse to get 10-bit working, the resolution of the XviD release is only slightly lower than the h.264 release, which replaces any need for an 8-bit h.264 480p release.

Now onto why we haven’t re-released the Blu-ray episodes in 10-bit: a fair amount of people won’t be able to render the heavy typesetting with 10-bit 1080p in realtime. We’ve already had to tone down some of the typesetting for the Blu-ray releases, and it wouldn’t be worth it to tone it down any further just so it can play back reasonably in 10-bit video.[/spoiler]

    > every pretty cure in a nutshell

  2. @avb well true, though the main-manga is pretty aweosme, i mean thre kaleid liner manga.

    @everyone seems like GSC i splanning to produce a Phantasmoon Figma!

  3. Is 480p the only resolution available?

  4. I say good future to the UTW group, great sub group that you are, the last hurrah is here all thanks to the protect ip act.

    There doesn’t appear to be any sound for the 480p version.
    I’m currently using MKV.

  6. Is this the last season of Carn.Phantasm?

    @joker: no, this is an OVA extra for buyers of the latest volume of the Take-Moon manga, which just so happens to be the original material that spawned Carnival Phantasm. This is also why it’s only 480p, since it is a DVD. Upscaling it to a larger resolution won’t magically make it look better I think.

  8. YES!! thank you very much!

    as a side note… shouldn’t ‘Nero’ be spelled as ‘Nrvnqsr’? ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌

  9. @martinez
    I believe mplayer2 uses libass to render subtitles. As libass is not vsfilter, it behaves generally different. And it happens to be much faster. While there’s a reason it’s not used in CCCP and such in place of vsfilter for ASS rendering, I can’t remember it. I’d ask ar; I believe he might know.

  10. @Synced

    To your question about Bazett,
    [spoiler]Bazett is from the Mage’s Association, sent to fight in the 5th grail war. She was originally meant to be Lancer’s master, but Kotomine tricked her, backstabbed her, cut her arm off and stole her command spells to become Lancer’s master instead. As she lay dying, she made a pact with Avenger who gave her a second chance at life, starting the events in Fate/Hollow Ataraxia. He kept her alive for about half a year in the loop’s artificial world, until the loop ended, and that was when Karen found her and nursed her back to health. So that was when I assume her relation to the church started. [/spoiler]

    @rei: Even Nrvnqsr has problems writing it so why make it harder. It’s Nero in English, Nasu’s pretentiousness aside.

  12. @Leon-Gun
    But the Nasuverse is all about Nasu’s pretentiousness. While we can’t have any real equivalents in English, it seems the Japanese text is full of weird words; Nasu apparently loves high difficulty levels for his writings.

    Nrvnqsr (did I even spell it right? -_-) is only but a small example.

  13. @Chan

    Yeah, I’m actually aware of Bazett’s position in the Mage’s Association and her role in F/HA. I just didn’t know her relationship with the Church and was a bit confused when she said that she was forced by the Church to get a part-time job. [/spoiler]

  14. so happy to see caren in this one

  15. @Chan: Nah, that’s just a translation mistake. The “association” in 魔術協会 is spelled “kyokai” as in “church”.

    ummm please help, i don’t see anything but just green on the my player vlc… what should i do fix this? my player works fine with all other mkv files.

  17. Stupid loli, Satsuki didn’t get a route and you don’t see her complaining. Okay, maybe you do but at least she does it quietly.

  18. Am I the only one who knew that Aoko was going a “Hikaru Genji” plan? This is Shiki we’ll talking here, no insane supernatural girl can resist.

    @saber-lion: You need to download a nightly build of VLC 1.2.X in order to use VLC. The 1.1.X line does not have support for 10-bit video encoding.

  20. More 10-bit e-peen’ing. Which can only be played by “insert nightly/hand-compiled/bleeding-alpha” on Linux, or… well, nothing aside from Plex on Mac OS X.

    Yeah, Really glad all of you run Windows. Thanks for taking us back to the days of 10-hojillion broken and fractured video formats from the late ’90’s and early ’00’s. I thought with MKV/H264/AAC we’d finally gotten past that, but no, you have to find something to break or you just wouldn’t be happy…

    CPU isn’t the issue. Being able to play the file in question AT ALL is.

    nothing will change.

  22. Hey guys, I found a 720p Version of Carnival Phantasm EX (though I don’t know, if it’s original 720p, or just upscaled)

    here’s the Magnet URI: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:LJYBCCOHNP3CDMH7TCXI4RZQH7BJMK6F

    Funny, I don’t remember Apple Fans complaining about new (broken) iPhones every year…

  23. So, I went through the trouble of re-encoding Carnival Phantasm EX (to reduce size) as well as to include UTW’s subs. I also slightly modified the subs, to accommodate the new aspect ratio.

    Here are the Magnet URIs for my encodes:



    Enjoy 😀
