AHEM. This is Moshiburner speaking. I found no other post to jack so screw it, I’m using this one.
Yes, I’m delaying stuff. Yes, it’s mostly back-burner stuff (no pun with moshiburner) since Raze and the crew (esp. fnord and ar) know that oh-my-GOD-THAT-GUY-IS-NEVER-ON-ANYMORE. Stuff like TLCing about…10 lines…in Fractale 9 BD. Damn I’m awesome. No sorry please don’t kill me I FIXED SOMETHING, REALLY I DID! THAT ONE VOFELY LINE (I’m talking to you kittengrinder. Yes, I went back and looked up your username.) BEING PORPHYRY. YUP. FIXED. You better thank me for that, anime-loving geologists, because honestly I know nothing about igneous rocks. Or what the word igneous means. Hell, I don’t even know if porphyry is igneous to begin with.
Right, so my point is…wait. I forgot. Ugh.
Screw it. Take it away ar!
Oh, and I decided to move this part to the top since I can and you won’t see it on the front page otherwise. <3 Check out the rest of the post to figure out what else I'm not doing on-time.
Hear ye, Hear ye, I come forth to bring you a random BD batch jam-packed with Nessa-goodness.
Let's see where to start. I was kinda lazy at first to do a BD release for Fractale but Xack offered to do the encoding and since it was only a 4 month turnaround for the complete series to be released on Blu-ray, I thought what the hell let's do it.
There won't be a 1080p or a XviD release, the 720p is the only version we decided to do since there was very little visual difference between 1080p and 720p (and I was lazy~). So consider this purely as an archive version if you liked the series. At 720p Fractale looks quite nice anyhow, thus your viewing experience won't be tainted!
I would like to thank Xack for taking the time to encode the series for us (thanks champ~) and to Moshi for stalling this BD batch for at least 2 months (<3 ya mate!)! There are really no changes from the TV batch except for Episode 9 where some new dialogue appeared in the wild, and consistency fixes for OP/EDs along with some updating to official lyrics.
arEdit: Doh. Looks like I forgot to align the ED Kanji correctly for Ep6-8 after changing them to vertical. This is what happens when I have no QC on my BD projects~ www. Here’s a quick fix for you guys anyway. Grab the patches and apply them with the .bats or (.sh for *nix/osx, also remember to chmod +x them and have xdelta3 on the system).
Status of other stuff:
Ano Hana TV Batch – Needs TLC reports applied, eta. when Moshi has free time (tl;dr could be a week or a month or 3, moshi is busy living the life~).
Gosick BDs – I’ve already told you people there won’t be monthly releases. Releases will be every 2-3 months. ETA to next release 3-4 weeks. (tl;dr when __ar has time)
Index II BDs – Last volume of the Blu-ray comes out this month, I have encoded up to episode 21 (current as of last month) and the staff member in question claims progress has been made, we have our doubts (www). ETA. when Index III airs or kusion hires a editor/qc who isn’t as god slow as he is or he actually works on it on a regular basis.
