The baseball episode as previewed.
I wrote a long background introduction on Japanese high school baseball, so I’m gonna recycle it here for a really long TL note.
[spoiler]National High School Baseball Championship in Japan, or simply Koushien, is held every spring and summer. Thousands of high school baseball teams throughout Japan compete to become the champions in their own prefectures first (Hokkaido and Tokyo get two seeds), in order to get a spot in the national championship tournament played in the Hanshin Koushien Stadium.
To be able to participate (and win) in Koushien is every boy’s dream, and it is undeniably the most prominent school tournament in Japan given the popularity of baseball, especially since many players graduate and sign with professional teams without playing in college.
The summer tournament is especially competitive (spring tournament is invitational, with highest seeds), and national TV broadcasts for the finals often garner viewership ratings rivaling that of professional baseball playoff broadcasts.[/spoiler]
The title of this episode, That Summer’s Twenty-One Pitches, is a reference to a non-fiction novel Enatsu’s ‘s Twenty-One Pitches. “Natsu” is the kanji for “Summer”.
The novel was about the seventh game in the 1979 Japanese baseball playoffs final’s last game. A legendary match where the relief pitcher Enatsu Yutaka held off the opposing team after allowing a no-outs, bases-loaded situation in 21 pitches at the bottom of the ninth inning.
Well, enough TL notes. Makoto’s and Erio’s team finally play against the hopeless match where they face off a semi-pro pitcher from their school, with the right to host the summer festival at stake. Watch for Maekawa-san’s obligatory cosplay, Ryuushi-san being all moe, and Meme-san’s boobies bouncing.
Enjoy Denpa Girl and Seishun Boy Ep12 NEET Girl and Gardening Boy Ep09.

iM@S 08 and 09 Delayed

See title.
EP8 – Everything is done except typesetting which is currently resting at Daiz (the typesetter) who is currently moving to a new dwelling, and will be doing so for the next few days. Once he has settled into his new place we’ll get this out. Our apologies for the delays.
EP9 – We’re going very slow with this, considering 8 isn’t even done yet. Considering I (Kusion) have had a long day at work, I don’t feel like staying up all night to wait for my turn. We’ll get this out tomorrow afternoon (if 8 has been released of course). Until then, keep bugging Daiz for updates on ep8, and don’t bug us for ep9! …Not yet, at least.

Please understand and try to be patient and it’ll be done when it’s done. Stop asking when it’ll be released or if we have dropped it. If it was dropped we would have said something.
I asked Kusion to put a post up earlier but he didn’t and since I don’t care about iM@S (I still <3 you though kuz) enjoy this awesome sketch of Mafuyu from Seizon (courtesy of Pixiv) instead.

Well, I’m pretty sure most of you already knew how this arc would end since they dropped one gigantic clue too many in the last episode. Still, Alice being even more delicious than usual made up for it.
Looks like we’re getting a baseball episode next. ETA on the obligatory beach episode?

Things sure got a lot more interesting with this episode. We’re treated to a bit of backstory, some detective work and revelations, and more delicious Alice.
While QCing this episode, I noticed an interesting bit of kanji play going on with the names of two characters:
[spoiler]One of the ways to write Yoshiki (the guy who owns that sewing shop) is ??. Incidentally, when you reverse the characters, you get ??, which is read Hison…[/spoiler]

Yayoi-cchi!  How is it possible to be so adorable?  She’s a parent’s dream come true.
Fans of the older idols, you can sit down.  This week’s ep takes things at a slower pace with a focus on three of the office’s younger idols.  In fact, none of the other girls even have lines!
Bonus points for anyone who catches Haruka’s ??? face in this ep.
See you next week!

Sorry for the delay, folks. When sudden illness strikes a small team, momentum suffers.

I think I’m running out of steam on witty(?) release copy.  Plot advances, people sing, some other people dance.  Yukiho digs a hole, Haruka doesn’t fall flat on her face, Hibiki doesn’t interpret the hamster language, Producer-san screws up… Takane continues to be wonderful comedic relief.  Oh, and Ryuuguu Komachi plays a minor part somewhere in there.

Some things that wouldn’t fit in TL notes:

Ryuuguu Komachi (????):  literally means “Beauties from the Palace of the Dragon King.” Ryuuguu Castle itself is a reference to the underwater castle that appears in the folk tale of Urashima Tarou, which you can wiki for more information (including the ‘treasure box’ that shows up in Kotori’s daydream).

Minase (??), Miura (??), Futami (??): Chief mentions during an interview that the three Ryuuguu members’ family names involve water, which gave Ritsuko the idea to use name Ryuuguu Komachi.  The characters in their family names mean, respectively: ?? water shoal, ?? three inlet, and ?? twin sea.  Haruka, who was indignant at being left out, bears the family name Amami (?? ), which uses the characters for heaven and sea.

A message from Daiz, the encoder and typesetter of the episode: My personal apologies for the delay. Sickness and typesetting hell just isn’t a very good combination.

Chugging along with the Renji arc…
Yeah. It’ll sound like a broken record if I comment on how we’re late this week again (hint: MMOs and an addicted editor), so I’ll just leave it at that and bid you all to enjoy the release.

We had plenty of fanservice for guys last ep, so this week… we have lots of fanservice for girls! Savor the topless and manly bodies of the Hirasaka Group Yakuza!
Sorry about the delay, guys. Schedules just got totally thrown off and we had people (including me) going to bed and napping etc., adding to the downtime. Enjoy this episode, at any rate (no, it’s not actually as gay as I made it sound).
arEdit: Both the x264 & XviD have been v2’d due to 2 minor encoding glitches (from memory errors on 1 encoding machine it seems) in the latter half of the episode. Turns out making a v2 patch for the 720p wasn’t so crazy after all, coming out at 4mb total size. XviD on the other hand is too variable so that’s a no go. I’ve included a fabulous sh script for *nix/osx users, just make sure you have xdelta3 installed/compiled and um it may need to be chmod +x’d since I packaged it on Windows.


You thought this was going to be some dumb beach episode? Ha. Ha. Ha.

Summer! The beach! Swimsuits! So why does it look like Producer-san isn’t enjoying himself at all? I guess it hurts that more than 3/4 of the girls he’s with are probably about 10 years younger than he is.  Oh well.  Doesn’t stop this from being a fun ep.  You can expect water guns, yukatas, hot springs, and yes, even pororis!
And for those of you who’ve been thinking “this show really doesn’t follow much of the game’s plot… it’s really just about introducing the idols!”, look no further.  Shit speeds up.
Enjoy two BRAND NEW, never-before-heard songs and a free-standing kara’d MV in a little while.
