Puchimas! Batch

Puchimas! – 1-64 Batch

For those who want episode 00, you can find it here as I don’t really want to work on it. The subs come from /a/ and are accurate enough.
And with this, we say good-bye to PuchiM@S! It’s been a fun 13 weeks, and we’ll cherish every day of it all. Though with such a mysterious ending, who know what’ll happen?!
This originally started as a solo project, where I was doing everything by myself at work. But after that, I had some help, so here’s a shout-out to the team:
fotc (Translation Assistant/Moral Support): Kuroneko = mai❤waifu. Kobato = mai❤imouto. Kaoru = mai❤shinyuu.
Melan (Timer/Guy Who Got Me Raws): It was fun working on this, but almost every day was a little too much at times. I enjoyed the show even though it was so short. Also, Hibiki and Chibiki are the best.
Also a big thanks to my commenting QC crew. Saves me a bunch of time when you guys find all my errors~
It’s been a blast, guys.

    The manga is a comedy 4koma, it’s a very quick read.
    I recommend it to any fan of idolm@ster, it’s both cute and hilarious.

  3. Wishing all UTW Staff a Happy New Year! Thanks for the hard work this year especially working on Fate/Zero, Sword Art Online, Accel World and many others. Looking forward to the Fate/Zero S2 BDs and new Animes subbed by you guys in 2013. Btw, will there be a batch for SAO?

  4. Two “u”s in Afuu, or at least, that’s how the guys that translate the manga do it.
    Having it different sets off my autism so I’m going to post about it and then forget about it until tomorrow.

  5. @Ted:
    Sorry, I don’t read the translated manga. If that’s how it is, I’ll update it to Afuu for episode two. We used Afu for the iDOLM@STER release.

  6. Thanks so much and happy new year!

  7. No kawaii typesetting? ;_;

  8. @Dark_Sage:
    Oh God here comes the F-

  9. Do you plan on doing the Episode 0 OVA that was released a few weeks ago?
    Also, it seems that this’ll be “archive” streamed on Niconico and Animate.tv (not livestream-only like SeiZon S2), so it’ll be easy to directly rip (instead of waiting for a reencoded? himado raw).
    Thanks for subbing this!

  10. @Anon:
    I’ll do ep0 later this week. I forgot about it completely.
    And oh, I’ll look into that then.

  11. sabersome on December 31, 2012 at 9:06 pm said:

    Will you guys be doing the Carnival Phantasm episode from the Type-Moon 10th Anniversary Blu-ray release and maybe some of the extras like FSN Vita openings?

  12. sabersome on December 31, 2012 at 9:09 pm said:

    I know that carnival phantasm comes out on the 16th of january just if you guys plan to do plan to do them or not.

  13. 64 episodes.
    By the looks of it, it’s Monday to Friday.

  14. Thanks a bunch! (=^-ω-^=)
    Oh and, I wish you guys a happy new year!
    /me takes a look at D_S’ post, he’s absolutely right, where is it? 😛 JK, keep up the good work.

    Are you going to do nekomonogatari

  19. narshe_delvar on January 1, 2013 at 12:10 am said:

    Holy hell, seeing Kusion surprised me. lol This looks like a very lightweight, fuwafuwa kinda thing for when I need a sweet fix. Will look into the manga nao, too.
    Happy new year UTW! Here’s to another year of sexcellent yummehness. *raises glass of Dr. Pepper*

  20. In Chinese they called it “泡面番”, which means instant noodles anime because it’s duration is short per episode. Thanks for doing this UTW, I enjoyed the manga so now is time for the anime one~
    And Happy New Year to all UTW staffs and friends here, hoping we’ll having another great year of anime-watching~! Yeah~ ! 😀

  21. Kinny Riddle on January 1, 2013 at 8:05 am said:

    Happy New Year. This could be a good digest show to follow, as each ep is only 2-3 minutes.
    BTW, will you guys be covering the Nekomonogatari (Black) special OVA which was aired yesterday?

  22. “泡面番”

  23. Just same question as some people; will you be doing nekomonogatari black cause many people would be pleased if you guys do subbed it… But it’s all up to you guys I think

  24. YAHOO, Puchimas!
    Thank you for this (and hopefully it turns out to be as good as the manga).
    On a semi-related note: have you ever considered switching from .torrent to Magnet URI?
    Not that it bothers me; as long as your releases land on my storage drive, I’m happy.

  25. fall5nangel on January 1, 2013 at 3:14 pm said:

    o.o nice show
    are u guys subbing nekomogatari (black)??
    slowly awaiting fate/zero subs for dvd!!!!

  26. DDL? I’d download it directly to phone/tablet…

    Please pick up Neko Kuro, I don’t want Communist eyecancer.

  31. These clips are so short, MKV is so overkill for this. Just collect them all together and do 1 file. AVI at least for these.

    I think it’s airing every weekday, so no new episodes on Saturday and Sunday.

  34. Mahjong on January 2, 2013 at 5:54 am said:

    Wait, actually, just Sunday.

  35. ShadowfoxEX on January 2, 2013 at 8:08 am said:

    Sorry, While I love the 4-koma, and your work. It’s just irritates me seeing the title spelled puchimas instead of puchimasu. The lack of the “U”

  36. Hmm I’ll try this out. I’m not too familiar with the franchise though, only watched The recent The iDOLM@STER Series.

    Btw, nice fanservice at the end of episode 3…

  44. Durandal on January 3, 2013 at 2:50 am said:

    Thanks for the subs, however I’m a bit confused:
    Is there going to be one or two episodes everyday (except Sundays)?
    Also, any idea how many episodes long is the series going to be?
    Finally, any word on Shiny Festa?

  45. Progeusz on January 3, 2013 at 12:03 pm said:

    @Durandal, unless UTW suddenly changed their mind, they won’t do Shiny Festa. Grab 765subs.

  46. Progeusz on January 3, 2013 at 12:13 pm said:

    Twins are the best \m/ Yukipo is so adorable <3
    @Kusion, pls respond to "Puchim@su!"

    About sword art online, are you guys doing it or will any group do using your subs that you are aware of ?
    I am sorry if that was already asked, but would be nice if u could stick it on the right side on the FAQ, thx.

  49. namednoob on January 3, 2013 at 8:51 pm said:

    I meant to say “About Sword Art Online BD” but forgot to att the BD sorry.

  50. Progeusz on January 3, 2013 at 9:38 pm said:

    @namednoob, UTW doesn’t want to work on SAO (perfectly logical decision). Wait for other groups using UTW subs, there should be some.

  51. @namednoob they’ll do but low priority

  52. Kusion on January 4, 2013 at 4:33 pm said:

    There will be one episode every day, except on Sunday. It seems there will be a live action special every Saturday (or today, rather).
    The list can be found: http://puchimas.com/onair/index.html
    As for Shiny Festa, the source is still crap. Lower quality than Puchimas!. Until they have a better source (DVD/BD quality) it won’t be done.
    I didn’t really think about Puchim@s!

  53. Durandal on January 4, 2013 at 6:03 pm said:

    Thanks for the replies so far.
    So, there will be 6 new episodes every week then.
    Any idea how many episodes long the series will be?

  54. Kusion on January 4, 2013 at 6:10 pm said:

    64 or so if I remember correctly.

  55. Mr. Kimiko on January 4, 2013 at 6:50 pm said:

    Could you do the specials and PV? just SUB files are good to.

  56. Don't mind me on January 4, 2013 at 11:11 pm said:

    I for one would love to see the specials translated. And if they contain the short episodes, I’d just download the special every week.
    Thanks for all your work, regardless of your decision!

    Thanks guyz.

  65. >You know, they could’ve packed this all up into a 12-episode 22 minute long series. I don’t know why they chose to go with this instead.
    Kusion, 5 episodes x 2 minutes per episode = 10 minutes… don’t we wish it were 12 episodes, then it wouldn’t have to be broadcast in this cancerous 360p!

  66. Enamelthyst on January 7, 2013 at 6:18 pm said:

    I admit it.
    Episode 6 might be the cutest thing ever made.

  67. It’s easy to underestimate how much of an impact that New Year’s greeting bit in the beginning, the credits at the end, and the recap segments like at the start of Episode 04 can have on the overall percentage of each episode’s unique amount of material. But the point is, you can’t just take a 3-minute Puchimas and multiply it by 8 and think you have one standard episode. And then you have to consider that even if you COULD do this, the math still doesn’t work out to a 12-episode series. 50 episodes x 3 minutes = 150 minutes << 240 minutes = 12 episodes x 20 minutes (because we trimmed off the OP, ED, and any sneak peek segment). So, why did they opt to go with this format? Because in small daily doses the joke doesn't get as old as fast and you can fool people into thinking you have way more content than you actually do.
    Still doesn't explain why they didn't do a 3-episode OAV disc though. That would've worked.

  68. ^ way to make a long-winded explanation when i clearly said the same stuff you said in like, three sentences there, dude.

  69. I see you live up to your user handle … in more ways than one!

  70. ” I don’t know why they chose to go with this instead. ”
    I don’t either…
    Thnx fer these, though…

  71. Iandolo on January 8, 2013 at 2:24 am said:

    So I was listening to Episode 6 with the video minimized, and I got a massive erection from the questionable audio and content. Just a little FYI.

  72. “You know, they could’ve packed this all up into a 12-episode 22 minute long series. I don’t know why they chose to go with this instead.”
    And I don’t know why you keep bumping the old release post; it makes keeping up with what we’ve already downloaded more difficult.
    See? Everybody’s got their phase of peculiarity.

  73. Kusion on January 8, 2013 at 7:31 am said:

    You really expect 64 release posts every single day? Don’t be stupid. That’d be annoying.

  74. ^ ditto‼

  75. I do like how the ED takes up half the episode.

  76. Hey Guys. How about this?
    When you have enough clips for a 24 minute file, you can append them all together and do it as one AVI.

  77. ShadowfoxEX on January 8, 2013 at 11:28 pm said:

    Take 6 episodes to go through 2 chapters. They even skipped some of the panels

  78. UTW, thank you for your all hard work, but please do give us status on:
    1. Dusk Maiden OVA;
    2. Chuunibyou SPs;
    3. (I guess won’t happen most probably, but) C3 OVA v2;

  79. Kusion on January 10, 2013 at 4:55 pm said:

    I can’t answer the firs two, considering I don’t work on them, but as for the third, I can say there won’t be a v2.

    Hope you decide to keep subbing it I look forward to seeing your release everyday

  85. Only just realized that Puchimas appears to be an iM@S 1 parody (as opposed to an iM@S 2 or later parody). Took a friend pointing the signs out to me too. “Oh yeah. Ritsuko’s hair. And the twins’. And Iori’s.” I guess the good news that comes of this is Beautiful Long Hair Azusa should be back instead of Neuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu ;_; What Did You Do To Your Hair!? Azusa. But on the other hand, no Chibi Takane. :\

  86. Hi guys, I hope you still work on Puchimas! regardless of stupid FUNimation.
    I sub this show into another language depending on your release ^_^.
    Where can I find Raw episodes and subtitles in case you stopped?
    Thank you ~

    AT LAST.

  95. Episode 11 is not decimated and pretty jerky.

  96. @Kusion
    720p as an upscale? or what? i thought this was put in shitty 360p… now all of a sudden it’s on TV? seems weird to me.
    seems someone hasn’t looked in the mirror when talking about being a child.

  97. It took you six days to come up with THAT!? You tell comebacks as well as Iori preps live fish for dinner.
    Thanks for the new episode as always, Kusion & Co.

  98. Progeusz on January 14, 2013 at 9:14 pm said:

    @Kitty, it should be obvious from release pic that 11 isn’t upscale.
    Also, don’t cut yourself.

  99. Progeusz on January 14, 2013 at 9:18 pm said:

    Great episode once again, now in glorious 720p <3 Ending song is really catchy.

  100. Don’t want to sound demanding or anything, but, is there a possibility of a 480p version of the episode too [old as hell pc kinda does not like 720p…]

    will that be subbed?

  104. LargeHard on January 15, 2013 at 4:11 am said:

    Glorious 720p is glorious…!
    But I too understand the yearning fer 360p release… We’ve got SD 360p fer days now…
    Why not release the 720p fer da batch or something…?
    It feels weird to me to suddenly get a 720p after watching 360p ‘s fer days now… But that’s just me…
    Thnx as always fer your releases‼ 😉

  105. wait, y’all serious about having a SD version for /THIS/?
    wow, if you hadn’t noticed, this is in (so far) 360p, and i’m /hella/ surprised Kusion did this in .mkv so forget me asking about a SD release, this IS technically a SD release, it’d be a WASTE of time to actually make a SD, and i bet the feeling’s mutual.

  106. also,
    a) i don’t actually spend countless hours on fansubbers’ blogs, so clearly you must be that kind of person. and
    b) Take it to someone who cares.

  107. Anonymous on January 15, 2013 at 5:20 am said:

    Just because the video is small doesn’t make it an SD release. It’s still 720p and for those of us too poor to afford good computers or to upgrade the ones we already have, it’s frustrating as FUCK to have to miss out on half the anime we want to watch every season because subbers either don’t bother with an SD release or stop doing one. I appreciate UTW and Mazui for (usually) giving us an SD as they are some of the last ones that bother helping us poor folks out.

  108. r1k0noh on January 15, 2013 at 5:27 am said:

    May I ask the translation is done by? Puchimas epi 11, 00:36 seems inaccurate to me, it should be sth along the line “Gosh I was wondering what I should did back there”. It’s nothing, it’s nothinggg but I rarely see a mistake from UTW ;<

  112. Bourgeoisie on January 15, 2013 at 9:48 am said:

    Heheh, oh compatibility releases…
    If your toaster is really so pathetic that it can’t keep up with 720p (which my piece of shit old 1.9GHz dual-core laptop could handle) and are unwilling to drop the $200-$300 it would require to get something, “new”, that really shouldn’t be a fansubbing group’s problem. There’s always the option to re-encode videos into a more suitable format yourself, if you must insist on using your decade-old computer or bizarre hardware player to watch Chinese cartoons.

  113. Progeusz on January 15, 2013 at 11:51 am said:

    @Kitty, no, this is HD. Go educate yourself what HD really means. Hint: 720p. It makes no difference whether video weighs 60 or 600 MB, it will still lag on older machines.
    SD reqests are perfectly understandable, Bourgeoisie has a point though. Even $100 should be enough if you buy used PC.
    Also, you seem to care pretty much. My little hypocrite can’t be this shy!

  114. I liked the 720p, but what is this new source? is it different than niconico one?

  115. Anonymous on January 15, 2013 at 12:28 pm said:

    It’s not that I’m unwilling to drop a few hundred so I can play 720p, it’s that I’m unable. Do you now understand what the word “poor” means? I’m barely making enough money right now to keep up with necessary expenses, I don’t have the disposable income to get a new computer or upgrade the one I have. If I did, I wouldn’t be asking for an SD release.

  116. Xangel on January 15, 2013 at 6:18 pm said:

    *Hear about 360p* Damn…

  117. @progeusz
    obviously, you misunderstood me. What I meant is, 360p is the -equivalent- of having a SD release. 720p and up is OBVIOUSLY 1080p. Common sensical people would know that.
    clearly you need a better paying job, which, with this economy, is easier said than done, but dude, no one envies you and wish you good luck in your future.

  119. blahmoomoo on January 15, 2013 at 8:22 pm said:

    I suppose you completely missed the fact that episode 11 was in 720p, not 360p. They were asking for an SD release of that, and any others that might be released in 720p (and for some reason today’s wasn’t 720… huh).

  120. About the 720p episode.
    Not sure what they were thinking when they decided to go all out making a higher-resolution episode, then falling back to their usual 360p episode.
    Maybe it’s some kind of hidden message to tell us they’re going to release a BD version, where the episodes will be in 720p, though I kinda doubt it, since the format of those episodes don’t seem fit for DVD or Blu-ray (they’re WAY too short for that).
    But who knows? Maybe they’ll merge all episodes together, removing half of the EDs and episode-recaps, so they’ll be more fitting for a DVD/BD release.
    Well, it doesn’t hurt to dream from time to times…

  121. Atvaark on January 15, 2013 at 9:39 pm said:

    soo…hang on. a raspberri pi is able to play 1080p videos with subtitles without lag. yet your computer can’t handle 720p? you could try running xbmc from a usb stick., it’s able to play 1080p with subs on an old p4 with 512 mb of ram with a geforce 8 series video card or ati hd 2000 series. which most computers dating 7-8 years have.

    @the Anonymous that replied to Bourgeoisie, maybe there’s a software solution for 720p on your old PC. (I finally got 1080p running on my 6 year old HP thing) Otherwise, you can still re-encode things yourself like Bourgeoisie said. (I use Ripbot264+xyvsfilter, works nice) Or the $30/40 Raspberry Pi Atvaark mentioned. (I have one, it works awesome, but it’s something you’d have to spend time playing with and following instructions to get going well)
    All said, UTW meant well by posting episode 11 in 720p. It was the best quality that they had access to I suppose, and it was pretty while it lasted. But subbers are working for free, you can only complain so much.

  130. Amami Haruka has never been more awesome than she was here.

    The only thing Haruka is best at is man slaughter and having brain damage.

  132. Progeusz on January 17, 2013 at 1:41 am said:

    The best part of Haruka is her alter personality, Harukakka who is so good because she’s completely different from the original~
    Just kidding, I like Haruka as well, it’s just that I like other Idols more (Kotori and Ritsuko included). Goes to show how great The iDOLM@STER’s characters are. Thanks for the episode!

  133. AkaRyuusei on January 17, 2013 at 3:51 pm said:

    I’m pretty sure that Harukasan’s name doesn’t need a hyphen since it’s not really a name with an honorific it’s just a name like Miurasan’s name.

  134. oh gawd. i don’t even proofread what i type.
    @progeusz : replace 1080p with HD, and that’s what i meant to write. 720p and up would be HD, and anything below is SD. YES, i know ep 11 or whichever was in 720p, but judging by the way kusion sounded when releasing, i assumed it might have been upscaled, so i don’t know (@whoever kept highlighting me.)
    guys, just try to understand, these fansubbers /are/ doing this for free and using their own time, so with something like a 360p release, it’s understandable to not release in anything but a .mkv file.
    on another note, talk about being the opposite of a witch, Haruka-san grows with water like the beanstalk? LOL

    Thnak you for the 14!

  137. @Atvaark: the Raspberry Pi has dedicated hardware circuitry for decoding (8bit) H.264 video.

  138. @wat
    As most devices do, even older ones.
    According to Wikipedia “NVIDIA has released drivers for hardware H.264 decoding on its GeForce 8 Series, its GeForce 7 Series and some GeForce 6 Series GPUs, see Nvidia PureVideo.”
    Besides: So far, every Puchimas-epsiode released by UTW was encoded in 8-bit (I know because I never had to transcode any of them to watch on my Nexus 7), so HW-decoding is not an issue here.
    And lastly, there’s always the option to transcode the episode. I mean, it’s only a 2-3 minutes episode. Even with a slow-as-hell PC it shouldn’t waste more than 10 minutes of your life.
    Go to the toilet, or go eat your meals while your PC transcodes the thing. It’s not so hard, really.
    If you want a one-step solution for transcoding, here’s the batch I’ve written for transcoding videos to my Nexus 7:
    @echo off
    cd %~p0
    for %%f in (%*) do echo Processing %%f & echo. & “C:\Program Files (x86)\MeGUI\tools\x264\x264_64.exe” –preset veryfast –tune animation –crf 16 –video-filter resize:width=1280,height=720 -o “%%~nf.temp.mkv” “%%~f” & echo. & “C:\Program Files (x86)\MeGUI\tools\mkvmerge\mkvmerge.exe” -o “%%~nxf” -D “%%~f” -d 0 “%%~nf.temp.mkv” & del “%%~nf.temp.mkv” & echo. & echo. & echo. & echo.
    Copy-paste into your favorite text-editor and save as a .bat file (or rename it from .txt to .bat).
    To use the batch, simply drag-and-drop your files onto the .bat file.
    Modify any of the options as necessary, e.g: –video-filter resize:width=640,height=360
    Also: “C:\Program Files (x86)\MeGUI\tools\x264\x264_64.exe” and “C:\Program Files (x86)\MeGUI\tools\mkvmerge\mkvmerge.exe” are paths to the x264.exe and mkvmerge.exe binaries on my PC. You should change those to point towards the correct path on your PC.
    You can get x264.exe on the site: x264.nl (if you’ve got a 64-bit CPU, download the 64-bit version because it’s faster)
    You can get mkvmerge.exe by googling for MKVToolnix. You’ll have to install the whole package, but mkvmerge.exe should be in the same directory where you installed MKVToolnix.

  139. Ah, before I forget:
    If you plan on using my batch, make sure the video you want to transcode is not in the same folder as the .bat file, or it’ll attempt to overwrite the original file, which will result in corruption.

  149. BrickBreak on January 23, 2013 at 6:46 pm said:

    I don’t understand. Why do people keep looking at Funi/CR as actual, viable alternatives to fansubs? They’re not. And there’s a multitude of reasons for that but by far the most important is that most of us don’t live under the star-spangled banner.
    Funi/CR streaming is NEVER a good reason to drop a show. And so, even though I don’t watch Puchimas, I thank you for not doing it.

  150. Thanks for episode 18

  151. Takane and Ritsuko <3
    Love the look on Takane's face in the screenshot you chose for this week (Ep18 ; http://utw.me/files/2013/01/Qe2gLRA.png ). It's too bad we can't see it more fully and zoomed in!

  158. Hello sir, I’m a mobile user and I use your .ass subtitles to hardsub the episodes. But sometimes, when I’m watching an episode, a duplicated word or symbols like this “{}” pop up in my screen. If possible, could start making an srt release from episode 23 onwards and upload it to the site server? Many thanks

  159. Progeusz on January 30, 2013 at 9:57 am said:

    Aww, Takane, that was mean… I love you.

  160. @Tom
    If you are hardsubbing anyways, you might want replace your vs-filter instead. The one you have is likely faulty.

    If your smartphone’s an Android phone, you could try MX player. It’s the only player I found that fully supports styled subtitles. There’s a lot of room for improvement, but it works well enough.

    There was a single 720p episode; so who knows?

  178. Unknown on February 12, 2013 at 4:25 am said:

    Hi, well I dont know where to post that message so I’m doin it here;
    Well first, I only watched your releases on Sword Art Online and I have to admit that you guys are doing a really good job (be it the translation and/or the video quality). I use to get all of Eclipse fansub and Menclave ( mendoi +conclave) releases but then they just moved on and lots of other good fansubs too. Therefore, I had to start looking for new fansubs which will offer me both a good translation and a good encoding/video s quality, and for a long time I had to stick with fastsubs (man…).
    Anyway, I would like to ask UTW if you guys are willing to start working on “Seitokai no Ichizon lv2”.
    I have the 1st season from Eclipse but they re clearly aint goin to get more episodes out.
    I know that there are lots of other teams who worked on that project but none of them seems to do as good as you so …
    Anyway just askin, have a good day.

  179. @Unknown
    Well I’m the Seizonfag of the group, but I honestly didn’t enjoy Level 2 that much. It was ok, worth a watch but honestly Crunchyroll have done a pretty good job of it so far, and as such since we don’t have much time nowadays I would suggest just to watch theirs. I’ve been happy with it thus far, and since there isn’t many signs you really don’t need a fansub release for it (unless you want karaoke or something.)

  180. Any plans to do the second Accel World OVA?

  181. @S42
    Of course.

  182. Unknown on February 13, 2013 at 2:53 am said:

    Thank You 😉 I ll do that then :p

  183. Will the Puchimas batch contain any corrections (to encoding, to translation, to anything at all) that make it worth downloading if you’ve already got all of the relevant episodes? Or is it just there as a convenience for latecomers?

  184. hmm… ep 32,
    :36 seconds in (wait, why am i nitpicking on a 2 minute-per-episode series…)
    >We finally found a light-up area.
    Last I checked, no one says “a light-up area”, so maybe it should be “We finally found a lit-up area.”

  185. @Tal:
    The batch will contain corrections to translations (episode titles mainly) and a few editing fixes. It will not fix any of the encodes. If you’ve already downloaded 1-32, there’s no reason to re-download the batch unless you want to have any typos or such fixed. It’s mainly for newcomers and perfectionists who like to archive.
    Ah, my bad. Was kind of a rushed day and even when I released it, I’m like “No I think something’s wrong…”
    I’ll fix that for the batch, thanks.

  186. Thanks for ep. 34
    Isn’t Deko-chan = Forehead?
    Well that’s what i saw in a manga translation.

  187. Does anyone know how many episodes this show will had altogether?

    I didn’t know where to post but I’m gonna post this here since it’s your latest release and I thought that’d make for better chance at an answer. Whenever I edit subs to sync the timing with raws for my Western Digital I often see that fansubs have subs with the exact same text and timing or the same text just a few seconds ahead multiple times. Why do fansubs do this? I’m asking out of curiosity. Thanks in advance.

  203. Chibiki is so cute~ >O<

  204. @curiousninja
    How do you expect people to answer if your question is not understandable?

  205. EcchiSkecchi on February 25, 2013 at 12:59 am said:

    Proly ya talking about typesetting of signs. The text may be the same but the position of the text changes. So if there’s a word in Japanese “いえ” on the screen, and the scene change, in a way the word was first in the upper left but ended up in the upper right of the screen, you typeset “home” it in a way the text same text will be shown various times, changing accordingly with the movement of the screen (your eyes won’t notice it and it will look as if it was continuous) so the translation will match the movement of the original text.

    Should this use 流 (ryuu), rather than 理由 (riyuu), i,e. 「みうらさん流 スキンシップ」 = “Miura-san-style skinship”
    Dialogue: 0,0:01:27.52,0:01:29.97,Default,,0,0,0,,30 minutes until the rehearsal!

    I’ve been following this since ep 01 with you guys, and it’s been a blast, indeed. Here’s to a second season and thanks for all your hard work! (as a fellow fansubber, I know how hard it is)
    oh, and Takanya FTW

    There is an OAD bundled with “LE Manga Vol. 5 due out on March 27” – is it new episode(s)?

    Good show. There’s one thing that irked me about the bear in the last episode though.
    At 1:42, is that pedobear?

  259. Have you guys ever thought of subbing the blu-ray version of Lupin the Third: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna? Just wondering

    Guys, I heard that the blu-ray is out. And I found that ANK-Raws have put up the 1080p mkv files for the first 21 episodes at: http://www.nyaa.si/?page=view&tid=450525
    Are you guys going to do the 1080p version? Please say that you will. This series is too hilarious to not do 1080p…
