Sword Art Online – Batch

DOWNLOAD: [UTWoots] Sword Art Online [720p]
Joint with GotWoot Fansubs.
Here’s the SAO batch! It only took me about half a year to finish it!
Sarcasm aside, I did put a decent amount of man-hours into preparing this batch. Episodes 1-13, 15-18, and 24 have all been v2’d and given an extra QC pass from yours truly. You can find more details of what was changed after the break.
It’s pretty unlikely that we’ll be working on the BDs at this point. Late as this batch is, please feel free to use our scripts for your own BD releases and the like.
Please enjoy, and thank you for following us for this show!

  • The endcards for episodes 2-5 have been added back in. There is no endcard for episode 1 as there was no clean (i.e. sponsorless) frame in the source.
  • The recurring typesetting (titles, date/time/location signs etc.) for episodes 1-13 have all been updated for consistency.
  • The broken ED chapter in episode 16 has been fixed.
  • Terminology in the SAO arc (most notably Aincrad Liberation Front -> Aincrad Leave Forces / the Front -> the ALF) and town names in the ALO arc (Swilvane, Alne etc.) have been updated to the official translations and made consistent.
  • Minor inaccuracies, typos etc. have also been fixed.

    Coz Navi will always find a way to piss you off the most

  6. I normally don’t use this disgusting word, because most franchises that are labelled as such, do really deserve their honorable mentions and criticism. SAO, the most overhyped and overrated mofo’ing series of 2012.

  7. Harimau on June 5, 2013 at 9:43 am said:

    Personally, I thought SAO lived up to the hype. But I actually only (finally) watched SAO more than three months after it finished, so maybe I missed the “hype phase”. But to each his own I guess.

  8. DarkArcher on June 5, 2013 at 10:11 am said:

    thanks for the release
    Will there be a patch for this batch?

  9. Gordon Shumway on June 5, 2013 at 10:21 am said:

    Thanks for the batch!
    Any plans to do the “Sword Art Offline” specials? (Would it help if I begged?) I’ve only been able to find the first two – no one else has subbed #3-#9 that I’ve been able to find. The first two are very funny.
    Thanks again for all of your hard work.

  10. So, 2-5 are redownloads… anyone planning to compile exdeltas?

    Thanks for all your hard work on the batch – much appreciated!

  16. Hi.. I could be a n00b for these kind of things, but anyway I have to ask you this: I recently downloaded the “BD 720p (Coalgirls)” version of the 1st ep of SAO and, compared with your amazing version, I couldn’t find any differences… now… or I missed something or I really cannot understand the difference between a “normal” 720p version and the BD 720p version… someone can (pretty please) enlighten me? thx in advance!

    thx utw!
    @oni fufufufuu

  18. Thanks for the batch, guys!
    Now if Nisemono BDs’ status would change to “out before summer season”, I’d marry you instantly, Raze. I’d even buy you a beautiful dress (I know, btw, that it’s not going to happen, I simply felt like voicing my thoughts :|).

    You have no idea how much I’ve been looking forward to this. And the timing was pretty much perfect. Thank you.

    Question — These Are these 720p eps 10-bit? My crappy compy always lags (Acer…), meaning if it is I’m pretty much burnt.
    I already have the series in 420p (by you guys), so I guess it’s not SO bad, but…

  27. madharuhi on June 5, 2013 at 4:42 pm said:

    Well, SAO was highly anticipated in Japan nine months before the anime was even released due to the novels being so fucking fantastic, by the time the rest of the world learned of its excellence it was already near broadcast, which was one of the many reasons the hype went on for so long. That, on top of people loving to jump on the bandwagon and the common theme that everybody loves (honestly, who watches anime but doesn’t play games at all?), makes it as overhyped as fuck. On a side note that no one probably cares about, I was particularly hyped about the voice casting back when it was revealed in late 2011.
    That said, the anime was above average (coming from me, ‘above average’ is probably the equivalent of pretty decent in many others’ opinions) if I have to say. It was definitely a great and worthy watch despite being slightly disappointing since I read the novels a few years back and was awed by Kawahara’s works. I would gladly get the BDs if they’d announce the animating of Mother’s Rosario; reading that volume made me shed manly tears.
    One thing I do feel was overpraised, was the animation quality. It’s decently done, but nothing close to the likes of Fate/Zero’s (despite the fact that CG was overused over and over again in it) and the usual KyoAni works (Chuu2byou and Hyouka).

  28. madharuhi on June 5, 2013 at 4:51 pm said:

    You should, honestly, consider getting an upgrade. Almost every single PC should be able to play 10bit 720p videos given a good setup nowadays (excluding netbooks because I tried it on a friends’ netbook and failed), let alone anime.

  29. carnival phantasm batch fucking where?

  30. coffeemilk on June 5, 2013 at 6:00 pm said:

    I made some xdelta3 patches for those who don’t want to download the 7 GB in different files. Get the patches here: http://ul.to/elwwn9z3.

  31. voltageee on June 5, 2013 at 6:19 pm said:

    Thanks for the release! I’m very grateful for this. One thing I was wondering is if there is any additional updates regarding the Anohana batch or blurays. I’ve been holding off downloading the series because I’ve been holding off for the fixes, although I’m not exactly sure if I should still wait or not. Any updates regarding this? Thanks!

  32. kingofhearts91 on June 5, 2013 at 6:25 pm said:

    Thanks for the batch 😀
    Does anyone know who is doing the BDs?

  33. nigger-obama on June 5, 2013 at 7:14 pm said:

    U better do some Blu-Rays or I’ll take your money, ASSHATS

  34. ZaXXy on June 5, 2013 at 8:52 pm said:

    @sora, never heard of this amazing new tech? cyberincest w/ yui and kirito lol but seriously… i wouldn’t mind either new sao or aw but i know it doesn’t depend on y’all

  35. SAOforeva on June 5, 2013 at 9:21 pm said:

    Coalgirls is doing BDs.
    They’ve got all the but the last three eps out.
    I imagine that the last few will be released relatively soon.
    Just not sure whether or not they’re going to integrate the revised subs that UTW just applied.

  36. Kayllin on June 5, 2013 at 11:17 pm said:

    Personally id rather go with FFFPeeps, Coalgirls releases aren’t bad, but they usually bloat their releases.

  37. seife on June 6, 2013 at 12:20 am said:

    I think FFF won’t do SAO

  38. @ People asking for a patch
    There won’t be one from us, but coffeemilk has made one. Technically, all updated episodes should be patchable (including episodes 2-5).
    @ Gordon Shumway
    It’s unlikely that we’re doing the BDs, so by extension we probably won’t be doing those Sword Art Offline specials either. To be honest, I wouldn’t mind releasing SAO BDs under the UTW name if I had a competent encoder/subber willing to do all the (rather substantial) BD work without much need for input on my part, but nobody in the team wants to do it. Sorry.
    @ fohfuu / voltageee
    I’m aiming to throw out the Anohana TV batch sometime next week, so please bear with us. The BDs are still being stalled at THORA, but last I checked (though this was a good month or two ago) they’re pretty close to finishing.
    @ Max
    That would depend on how much you care about video quality. Coalgirls uses the Blurays as their source (and should therefore be better), while these releases were encoded using the TV broadcasts. This batch should be more than good enough for a casual watchthrough, but if you insist on maximum possible video quality, go for a Bluray release.
    @ Enz
    Realistically, I’d probably get anywhere between zero to two episodes of Nise out before the summer anime season. Sorry!
    The Nekomonogatari Black BD has a higher priority, and hopefully we can release that before Monogatari S2 starts.

  39. thanks for the batch release !
    episode 14, 9:47 should be “Changed into Mortal Object”, not “Changed into Immortal Object”, that’s the opposite meaning

  40. @ balamiere
    That’s the studio’s fault. Notice the “Chaged” typo too.
    We probably could’ve typesetted over their mistake and corrected it, but it didn’t seem appropriate to.

  41. I want an arc starring Silica looking like that picture! :p

  42. Knarf on June 6, 2013 at 4:15 am said:

    It’s a shame that the currently best anime sub group is the one with the least free time. Tis’ life I suppose.

  43. TalesOfGod on June 6, 2013 at 5:12 am said:

    I love this series but man, I was expecting for blueray batch. Ah well, I guess I’ll finish downloading them 1 by 1 for 1080p ^.^

  44. CoNfuSe on June 6, 2013 at 6:23 am said:

    Can some one reupload the patch, cause I can’t download it from http://ul.to/elwwn9z3.

  45. @Raze: Thanks for taking the time to answer, it’s really appreciated. And also thanks for explaining the circumstances. As usual, I’ll keep patient and watch it once you’ve released all episodes since your release is easily the best one around.
    If you mentioning Monogatari S2 was something like a hint at you guys subbing it this summer, then my marriage proposal still stands. <3 (LOL)

  46. @Raze: I see, thanks for the explanation, appreciate it. Probably not a big deal, but still I find it a bit confusing when I watched it though =)

  47. Aaron on June 6, 2013 at 10:01 am said:

    This is really great! Thank you so much, UTW!

  48. @Raze: thx for your kind reply… I really appreciate it! 🙂

  49. CoNfuSe on June 6, 2013 at 11:29 am said:

    Thx Raze for the patch.

  52. ep4 5:30 Ebon Dagger->Ebon Dag->Ebon Dagger instead Ebon->Ebon Dag->Ebon Dagger ;),
    thanks for the batch anyways

  53. Just a minute while I drool all over my computer.

  54. Thanks a lot for your work as usual guys!

  55. sandoe41 on June 7, 2013 at 6:25 pm said:

    Ep. 15-24, the ‘tte mou” part of ED line 2 & the last line was mistranslated. The entire line should be more like “It’s certain, I’m sure, because I wish it once again”, or something very similar.

  56. Grecian Urn on June 7, 2013 at 11:29 pm said:

    I don’t think so?
    1) The mou is part of mou ichido, not tte.
    2) tte is a particle that means something was said or thought. It doesn’t mean because.
    3) UTW seems to have interpreted the kitto as in “kitto furimuitekureru” or something, or basically “I’m sure x will happen.” They used “someday” which is quite liberal but still arguably correct.

  57. Sum1 on June 8, 2013 at 12:40 pm said:

    I cant get the subs working when i open it into the player, what do i do?

  58. Karplunk on June 8, 2013 at 4:06 pm said:

    aww… wished I see this post sooner… I just finished downloading ALL of the old episodes yesterday now I’m gonna delete them all and wait about 3 more days to watch the updated version!
    ps. the opening/ ending subs are really well done (with all the japanese characters and karaoke-style sub) which you would do that for Suisei no Gargantia too though…

  59. Alexvrb on June 9, 2013 at 2:51 am said:

    Awesome, thanks for the batch. I really wish they had animated the arc after ALO, at least. 🙁

  60. Kaisigmu on June 10, 2013 at 4:00 am said:

    It seems like no one is seeding or something since I’ve been stuck “connecting to peers” for awhile now.

  61. Sorry to bother.. But can I have a link for the fonts? Not really a sub editor expert. Just wanna make my Raw sources to mini-mkv BD’s with the fonts and all.

  62. anonon on June 13, 2013 at 5:59 am said:

    @D-JPois0n: I think there is mkvextractGUI. You can download an episode and extract the font (attachment).

  63. @anonon’ That I know. But that is why I am asking if I can get a copy of the fonts, So I don’t have to download the episodes. I only need them from EP 12 towards.

  64. anon47 on June 27, 2013 at 10:10 pm said:

    Are the v2 subs included in the script download section? They don’t have v2 in the name so I wasn’t sure.

  65. uploaded 158.9GB thanks for the great work

  66. Can you please do the “Sword Art Offline” Specials in the Blu-ray but in subs since I can’t seem to find episode 3 and beyond all the special episodes in subs unfortunately. I know this may be selfish but I just can’t stand waiting after 6 months of no subs of the third episodes onwards without knowing what content is there in the other ten blu-ray editions. Thanks if you do 🙂

  67. Redeaded on December 19, 2013 at 10:28 am said:

    So Guys! Just had to ask but Will you guys be doing the SAO OVA Special?

  68. Ev0_MiRaClE on December 31, 2013 at 5:43 am said:

    ^Exactly what I want to ask,it is tonight and it is streaming worldwide(right after it streamed in Japan).Please do it man 🙂

  69. Faishal26 on January 2, 2014 at 5:08 pm said:

    Will you do the extra edition?

  70. azhure on July 7, 2014 at 5:49 am said:

    thank you so much for this awesome, batch, quality is superb

  71. Can somebody seed this please, It would be most appreciated, thank you very much 🙂

  72. Valz_niK on September 22, 2017 at 8:38 am said:

    Can you please reseed this batch? I need it so bad.
