Here you go: the Carnival Phantasm Special Episode that came with the Type-Moon Festival BD Box. I will admit this is late, but I won’t apologize because you’re technically lucky to be getting this now and not half a year later given my ridiculous workload studying the healing arts!
Please note that these releases are 10-bit, unlike the original 12 episodes which were encoded in 8-bit. Not that it should matter at this point.
If I had to comment about this episode, it would be that I’m somewhat glad the “Date Everyone” route came out on top in the online poll.
I really don’t know when the batch for Carnival Phantasm will be ready, but you can expect some progress to be made during school breaks. As for how the Fate/Zero Season 2 BDs are coming, I’m halfway done with translating the final Einzbern special as of writing this post. The rest of the batch is as good as ready, so I’m hoping to throw it out mid-February.

    Please tell me the SD will be 8-bit. I never understood the point in encoding 480p in 10-bit when I thought the whole point of an SD release was because people had crappy, old machines that couldn’t handle even handle 720p.

  8. Rokudaime on January 31, 2013 at 1:25 pm said:

    Mid-February? MID-FEBRUARY!???? ARGH! You’re killing me here! X/ Whatever happened to “It will definitely be released by February”? :'( Why does it take so long anyway, if episode 25 and the Einzbern special is all that is left?….Sigh….

  9. First a really big thank you to you, guys! I have a question regarding to the Carnival Phantasm Batch. Will you use reencodes for the batch, so we can enjoy Carnival Phantasm in Hi10P? Thanks in advance for the answer.

  10. Awesome, thanks. Shit happens people. It was obviously more work than Raze originally thought or he had less time spare than he originally thought. Deal with it. I don’t see what the rush is anyway, unless you actually waited for the BDs instead of watching the TV rips.

  14. As others have mentioned how does it take so fucking long to translate something you already translated once, first it would def be released christmas break, then by feb., now mid feb. is that a sick joke? iv resisted the urge to comment about it until now but this is ridiculous

  15. Rokudaime on January 31, 2013 at 2:31 pm said:

    That’s exactly what I did, and what I always do for all shows. I want to watch both seasons in one go too, so I haven’t watched anything yet. I also caught wind of the show right away when it was announced. In other words, I have been waiting since 2011 to watch this show. And Fate is my favourite franchise, and I’m a huge Type-Moon fan in general. Now pehaps you understand the frustration I’ve built up at this point? :-/

    I didn’t even know this existed! Thanks so much for the delivery!
    Take care and good luck with studies!

  26. January ends and still no F/Z Part II BD subs? Sad times. 🙁
    But a new episode of the best official fan parody series of all time is released? The good times, they are a-rollin’. 8)
    And finally, the typesetting with Hibiki, Chika’s, and the cell phone’s attribute signs crashes VLC? Yet another “Don’t use VLC! =P” “I have my reasons for using VLC!” “{disparaging remark}” “{disparaging remark}” argument unless that shit is stamped out immediately. Or unless it’s an encoding error that can be rectified rather easily and v2’d no problemo. (If it matters, this was with the 720p file.)

  27. Nice!
    Watched it on BD but it’ll be good to see it again subbed.

  28. mascthemoney on January 31, 2013 at 8:44 pm said:

    Honestly speaking, I can’t say that I’m happy that the S2 batch has been delayed again.
    If what you say is true, and you only have the Einzbern special to translate, I would ask that you just release the episodes first and then the special later.
    I’m sure that a lot of people will agree, since the scale of my heart (and others) says:
    Main Episodes >>> Some special/extras.
    So…….. TL;DR
    Release the 13-25 batch now and release the specials later.
    Candidly speaking, I couldn’t give less of a shit about the specials anyway.
    PS. As a fellow/former student of medicine, I hope you’re not having too tough a time with your studies. I guess students nowadays are given even more work than when I was one.

  29. Someguy on January 31, 2013 at 8:45 pm said:

    why do you have AC3 on a 10 bit release? it makes no sense

  30. mascthemoney on January 31, 2013 at 8:54 pm said:

    Also, I forgot to add:
    I hope that the “mid-February” thing is all a big joke, and will be released later tonight.
    Cause I know Raze loves us all.

  31. @Trish: Well, there are a lot of new scenes, that he has to translate. At least I hope so, especially for the last two eps.
    btw. I hope that someone will do a rundown of the changes/new scenes for the blu-ray edition, unless it already exists.
    Oh and thanks for more Canrival Phantasm. Truly one of the funniest anime I’ve watched those past years.

  36. I get you being busy and all, but seriously, if all you have is half a short episode left to finish, then it should not take you half a month to finish it, especially if everything else in the batch is ready. I’m sorry, but this really is ridiculous.

    Is anyone else on the team actually trying to help Raze? For all we know, the rest of the team could be treating him like crap, giving him all the work without lifting a finger to help.

  43. Anonymous on February 1, 2013 at 1:17 am said:

    The audio and the video for the SD are out of sync for me. Anyone else have this problem?

  44. No, he just lacks all kinds of free time at the moment. His post-graduate degree workload is extremely high, and he even stays on campus, and spends most of his free time either revising or preparing notes/etc for the immediate future.
    Nobody can really help him with the stuff he is backlogged on because he is doing the part of it that HE does best. There’s no point passing the work off to someone else if at the end he has to check it himself anyway, not only does it waste more of somebody elses precious free time, but he still has to go over it.
    Last I checked we do this for free anyway, and in our spare time, which means things get done AS we have free time we can OR feel like dedicating to fansubbing. Sometimes we have free time but doesn’t always mean we want to dedicate that particular amount of free time to subbing chinese cartoons, and sometimes we don’t have free time but find time to spend subbing chinese cartoons.
    Imho for the people who are mad about the main Fate/Zero eps not being done yet, there’s always the alternative of paying $350 odd for the boxset which includes subs for the main episodes. The only subs which aren’t included are for the Onegai Einzbern specials, so anybody who doesn’t care about those really has no bone to pick tbh. Demanding that they get their free stuff faster or that getting their free stuff at the speeds they are getting them at isn’t acceptable is just plain silly.
    I’m going to be waiting a long time for all the Spice & Novels from Yen Press for example, and I’m even a paying customer, but such is life and life is all about waiting, after all we’ve got at least 60-70yrs to live.

  45. Branden on February 1, 2013 at 1:29 am said:

    Thanks guys.
    Study hard!!

  46. @Anonymous
    Seems fine for me, I’ve checked it with muxed with both L-SMASH and MP4Box and played both back using different splitters, both seem in sync. Perhaps just check the k-timing in the OP, should be roughly in sync (as much as a fast song can be)

  47. Thanks Guys! Just a quick question; i get massive framerate problems when there are any sort of formatted texts (like when hibiki’s character profile comes up). Is this some sort of settings problem or should i switch away from cccp (which im sure i have the latest version of)

  48. @jlk
    Those character profiles are pretty cpu intensive since they have gradients and such all over them and fade in/out, so if you’re already using xy-vsfilter (should be with the latest cccp, though you can check on playback by right clicking on the video -> filters menu -> DirectVobSub (auto-loading version) -> properties -> About tab. Should have something like DirectVobSub xy-VSFilter), but if its not then you either aren’t using it (and are using the internal mpc one or an older one), let me know the version if it differs from that.
    I get no problems playing them back even at 1080p, but of course it really depends on what you are trying to play them back on.

  49. >not just using aac for both

  50. ChronoBlue on February 1, 2013 at 2:05 am said:

    When you get older you realize that great fansubbs are to be treasured. If I want run of the mill, god awfull fansubbing, I’ll just go to one of the many places that provides such a “service”.
    You want Great Fate/Zero? Wait or STFU.

  51. Bob2.5 on February 1, 2013 at 2:19 am said:

    I know what you mean about them spice and wolf novels i am just waiting for them to finish the whole series then buying them all at once, locking myself away somewhere and reading them non stop. I can not handle reading them as they release, for the Haruhi novels sure but not spice and wolf. Also it might end up with the company not translating the last novel like the Karin novels (that was a kick in the balls, left with an incomplete collection.) Though i doubt that will happen to spice and wolf.
    Something more on topic, i am thankful enough just to have the Fate/Zero BD done they will done when they are done then i can rewatch them all over again. Anyway once they are done the waiting will fast become a forgotten feeling/memory, just like everything else you wait for.

  52. >not just subbing it from scratch yourself and then using the audio you want

  53. @ar
    Listen man, I can’t speak for everyone but most of us here appreciate the hell out of what you guys do for us. You guys like true badasses sacrifice your free time on subbing shitty Chinese cartoons and don’t even make a cent. I understand this and I’m not mad because F/Z isn’t out, okay really disappointed but not mad. I’m mad because Raze said 3 times already that it is was going to be out at xxx and still isn’t out. I know medical school is a pain in the ass, but If you say your going to do something do it, don’t just push it back. So really this brings me to my point that UTW should be more realistic with your release dates in the future. Thanks.

  54. revoltech on February 1, 2013 at 3:09 am said:

    Ever since I first read on MFC that the WonFes BD would have an additional CP episode, I’ve been waiting patiently for this. A million on providing this superb item. m(_ _)m

  55. @Knarf
    Yeah i can understand where you’re coming from, but things do come up and affect schedules.
    Lets see.
    Christmas Time
    Raze planned to spend it finish upping F/Z while he was on holidays and instead didn’t get much done because I roped him and the Mazui/rori guys into subbing Nekomonogatari (because I’m a SHAFT fag and enjoy the Monogatari series). This practically burnt through the latter half of his 2 weeks off and he didn’t get all that much done on F/Z, but Nekomonogatari got subbed instead, and we had fun (other than breaking our backs in the process!) and people got to watch something different out of the blue. I know I was glad we subbed it since I really wanted to watch it.
    After Xmas Holidays -> Now.
    Raze managed to get Onegai Einzbern 5 done, and the last 4 or 5 eps of F/Z.
    Carnival Phantasm Special Season came up. This was a more urgent thing to sub than a Blu-ray release of something we’ve already subbed since it’s new material. So he lost any free time he had which he planned to spend on F/Z working on that instead, and mind you it still took him nearly 2 weeks to get the full translation done, and then doing a QC pass on the typesetting+dialogue and fixing anything he wasn’t happy with. While he might have not spent all that much time on it per session, he probably still managed to accumulate a good 8-10hrs of time spent working on it throughout that period, which when you might only have an hour at most free a day, is a great chunk of time. He did manage to get started on Onegai Einzbern 6, which is 30mins long and is a fair bit of work (and which I still have to typeset so there’s time I need to find from my busy schedule to get it done).
    Then in between all this he still gives up at least 3-4hrs and sometimes anywhere upto 6-8hrs of his Saturdays to work on Shinsekai Yori every week, depending on how much going over it needs, etc.
    So at the end of the day what I’m trying to say is, it doesn’t matter how well you schedule things and even give dates, things always come up and completely destroy that schedule.
    Could you have predicted them? No
    Could you have factored some in? Yes and that was obviously done.
    Would you say fuck it to your real life commitments just to make good with a schedule you gave some people on the internet that you don’t know and that don’t give a shit about what consequences keeping that schedule would have on you just so they can get their cartoons when they hoped they would and a result forget about the whole thing a week later? Probably not.
    We even do skip out on some RL stuff to a point but there’s only so much give, and there comes a point where RL comes before hobby commitments, and where new material takes a higher precedence than updates of previously subtitled works.
    That’s how it is, and that’s just how the world turns unfortunately. As you get on in the years, you just kinda learn to accept that there’s only so many hours in the day, and there’s only so much one man can do in those hours. If you get disappointed or mad everytime some kind of schedule doesn’t get met, you’ll spend two thirds of your life feeling shitty and that’s not worth it.
    Sorry for the tl;dr but yeah you just gotta see it from our shoes and from outside your own box. We want to get stuff done too, but if other things of higher precedence appear, then they get attended to first while lower precedence things get attended to in due time.

  56. TL;DR
    1.) Blame AR instead of Raze for UTW not finishing Fate/Zero BD in December, which is when it was originally scheduled for
    2.) Raze is awesome, as despite his non existent free time and the hell known as med school, he is still translating chinese cartoons for free
    3.) Accept that whenever UTW says “something will be done”, don’t believe them because it’s probably not true and you’ll likely be disappointed if you think that is a statement to take at face value

  57. @ar
    Hahahahaha your right we are just some random dudes on the internet with shitty hobbies at the end of the day. I also forgot about how awesome your Neko release was and how much time that must of took up. But hey do you really blame me for being disappointed? Anyone would be disappointed not being able to see naked Gilgamesh in 1080p!

  58. Just a heads up, you probably should change the sidebar, where it says
    “Fate/Zero S2 BDs where?
    Just Episode 25 and the final Einzbern special left to finish off now, but Christmas/New Year break is over for Raze and he’s back in Med School. It will definitely be released by February.”

  59. カノト on February 1, 2013 at 7:32 am said:

    btw, is it just me or is the OP audio kind of washed out compared to the other episodes’ OP? It’s kind of nice though how they subtly ramroded the two into it 😀

  62. @KANOTO (yes i’m too lazy to switch to jp ime!)
    That’s entirely possible. Imho we should just be grateful that they supplied a progressive version of the Special Season episode instead of the 30fps interlaced version that was screened on the Day 1 disc during the event, and is like half the bitrate of the one included on the Special Disc (Disc 3).

  63. I feel like someone called in the f/a/ggots to defend Raze’s f/a/ggotry.

  64. カノト on February 1, 2013 at 10:54 am said:

    nah, I’m not referring to the video quality (though it does seem slightly low res, I don’t mind). it’s just that, after listening to the mp3 of the OP and watching the previous releases, the audio bitrate and probably the volume seems a bit out of place with the rest of the episode. It’s not like they changed the audio itself, so it’s probably the small off-detail.
    Also, you can just copy paste the katakana in any case, right? :p

  65. MarqFJA87 on February 1, 2013 at 12:35 pm said:

    The video keeps crashing VLC whenever Hibiki’s attribute box comes up. Any ideas how to fix this?

  66. @Marq
    Yeah. Stop using VLC.
    Yeah I was referring to the audio loudness more so than anything. My best guess would be that they didn’t normalize the levels of the main track after mixing the OP in or they just mixed the OP in normalized to a lower -dB value than the main dialogue/background track was. The latter would make more sense since the OP master is probably quite loud, much louder than the episode master would be.

  67. ChronoBlue on February 1, 2013 at 3:16 pm said:

    So… after watching the episode, I do wish that finale is an Heaven’s Feel teaser. Boy would I like yandere Sakura in all her greatness =0.

    @ Bob2.5
    Thank you sir, that was some great 360p, 1:30m, high grade awesomeness *.*
    @ Rokudaime
    Its not only to complete the series, but the fact that Sakura just disapears on the other routes (nop, not gonna acknowledge the anime filler part ) feels kinda off.
    I love the fact that they took on a new approach to the story and quite simply because Sakura is awesome. I’d really love it if it was “over 18”, with all the crazyness, but as long as they make it, then I’m a Happy Pirate xD

  73. You guys are quite possibly the best Subbing group I have ever found.
