Oh boy, shit’s starting to hit the fan.
After watching this episode, the more perceptive among you can probably deduce what Maria and Mamoru did after they left the town and what became of them. The next episode can’t come fast enough!

And we’re back to having no OP again we have a “new” ED, like they promised.
Twelve years have passed since we last saw Saki, but her curves are just as nice as ever. Tensions run high in this episode, though it’s a relatively heavy one in terms of material to digest.
See you next week!

Took them 16 episodes to finally include an OP (well, sort of).
It’s like they have something against showing heterosexuality in action on screen! Still a good episode anyway.
Looking forward to next week!

Bit of a late release again, you know how life is unpredictable. I really hope we will get the new ED next week. Seeing as how the single is out 1/25, it couldn’t be much later. I’m kind of afraid they will make Hanakana sing something outside her unspectacular range and the song will be meh, but we won’t know until we hear it.
Raze says: I must apologize for this late release. I’ve been suffering from a rather severe hangover all day and couldn’t concentrate at all this morning.

If only real life lesbians were this hot.

Sorry about the late release, but several things just sorta fell flat this week and QC ended up taking a while.
It’s yet another brilliant episode, though, so I hope you enjoy it!

The world didn’t end as planned, so I guess there’s subbing to be done!
Shinsekai Yori will be on break next week; episode 14 will air on January 4th, 2013.

More infodump this week! Lovin’ this series.
I didn’t spend as much time as I would’ve liked on this episode, but I need to get back to cramming for my finals I have confidence in the team.
And don’t even talk about the filesize. Don’t.

The plot thickens every week. Great stuff.
The encoder’s not feeling too well this week, hence the slight delay. We know that a few signs at 15:50-16:10 in the video are missing, but the typesetter had already gone to bed during QC and it’s obvious what the sign says. They’ll be typesetted for the batch and the Bluray releases, of course.
Please enjoy this week’s Shinsekai Yori!
EDIT: Somehow managed to mux the wrong script, sorry about that. Please redownload the v2 release or use the patch linked above to fix the v1.

Ok so this volume only contained the first episode, the following 8 volumes will have 3 episodes each. Also we are doing BDs for this show because we actually like it and don’t mind working on it again unlike most shows.
First thing’s first though, to answer a few questions.
A: Simple answer really, Blu-rays recommended bitrate for video (around 40-42mbps) allows for quite decent encoding quality and also gives the authorer some overhead to play with to produce a nicer quality home video release. This means that things like banding, blocking, etc can be managed much better than in the DVD days. With the advent of like 4 times the bitrate of DVD video and a much more efficent codec (H.264 vs MPEG2 in all its badness), we are seeing a lot more being done to produce nicer looking retail releases. Basically for Anime this typically means the use of Digital Grain in various forms, along with fancy dithering algorithms, etc. A lot of the time, a more static approach to grain is taken which compresses a lot better, and some times looks better without it there anyway. What has been be done for this series was a more similar approach that’s done for live action films and media, basically really soft non-obtrusive highly dynamic Digital Grain. Being so dynamic and unpredictable it requires heavy bitrate overhead because it can’t be referenced a lot of the time and requires coding of many more blocks than otherwise would be used. Now you could remove it, but removing it looks even worse because then there is lolbanding and the backgrounds don’t take well to much debanding, and you basically get the TV broadcasts that have so much background detail missing or wiped out.
A: This volume only has 1 episode, and the next one till the end will have 3 each.
If you don’t care about grain or background details, please just keep your tv encodes and don’t complain about the size. If 1080p is a little too big, get the 720p version, for which just the processing of resizing has naturally removed grain that was no longer needed at that reduction of pixels.
If you want to complain about size just because you are a faggot and think you can change the world with your naivety please do it elsewhere, lest we tell you how stupid you sound doing so.
The tl;dr is I tried taking a few different approaches and the one where keeping the more useful areas of the dynamic grain pretty close as I could turned out the nicest looking results. Static grain just made everything look cloudy, and debanding/removing the grain just made stuff look much closer to the TV broadcasts. Just remember that nobody is holding a gun to your head telling you to download something. Download it if it meets your needs otherwise just don’t.
I won’t keep filling this post up, but let me just say that other than some bit starvation related blocking that is a result of the dynamic grain effect that chewed up more bitrate at times than they could sustain even with 40mbps, these blu-rays seem to be a quite nice example of how HD content should be handled. They aren’t perfect, but overall this episode was fairly consistent and they handled most things pretty well.

Lightning fast release this week! You can thank the crazy efficient team on the show… and the alcohol and nicotine in my body for depriving me of my good night’s rest.
It was totally worth it though. I’m still breathless from the sheer impact of this episode.
And here’s a few words from fnord.
This was my favorite episode so far. About one minute into it, I realized I’d seen this art style and direction before. Characters looking quizzically, strange angles, weird backgrounds.
It reminded me of Casshern Sins far more than could be attributed to chance, and aye, the episode was directed by Casshern’s director. I adore this surreal beauty; Casshern may just be my
favorite show just as this is my favorite episode in this show. If you like this episode, I recommend you watch Casshern Sins.
