  1. http://lostyears.kametsu.com As SimulDubs have become extremely popular, evermore so each season, I've decided to start another group (as I wanted the releases to be easily distinguishable from Kametsu releases) with a different purpose than the Kametsu Projects group, with a different goal in mind: SimulDub dual-audio remuxes. Releases Summer 2016 D.Gray-man Hallow (Koby, professa X) Fall 2016 Alderamin on the Sky (NeutralHatred) Drifters (NeutralHatred) Izetta, The Last Witch (Koby) Winter 2016 Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas (Koby) Fuuka (NeutralHatred) Interviews with Monster Girls (Idle) Masamune-kun’s Revenge (NeutralHatred) Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid (NeutralHatred) Saga of Tanya the Evil (Koby) The Dragon Dentist (Koby) Join The Team! We’re more than happy to welcome new people to join us in releasing anime for the fans. The more staff we have, the more projects we can take on. We’re looking for people who can do at least some or all of the following or willing to learn: Sourcing the audio stream. Syncing audio to video. Editing subtitles to a degree. Usually just making a signs-only track, but sometimes adding OP/ED lyrics. Since we’re mostly a group dedicated to remuxing fansub releases into dual-audio utilizing SimulDubs, we don’t really require encoders, timers, or typesetters; but there is always the possibility that we might for specific projects. So if you want to apply as a backup case then by all means. Otherwise you might be better off joining our Blu-ray release group Kametsu where your talents could be put to good use. If you’re confident enough to apply, talk to Koby directly. As always, you can leave a message here or find us on IRC.
  2. List what Anime series you have started watching or currently watching. No need to continue to update each time you watch an episode with the episode number. Announce the series only and move on, when you start another series then come back to say so. Lately I been watching Tokko when it comes on Monday nights on the Sci-fi channel.
  3. The last game I finished was XenoSaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose for the Playstation 2. I beat it in about 23 hours. It was a decent game, however the first XenoSaga was alot better.
  4. I went to the movies and watched Live Free or Die Hard.. Wait erm, I went to the movies since then and watched Rush Hour 3.
  5. Synopsis: Set in Los Angeles, California, the series follows a dysfunctional family composed of high school guidance counselor Madison Clark, her English teacher boyfriend Travis Manawa, her overachieving daughter Alicia, and her drug-addicted son Nick, in the onset of the zombie apocalypse. The four are forced to choose between profoundly changing or proceeding as their current flawed selves while they come to terms with the impending collapse of civilization. Week 1 was the highest rated cable series premiere ever. With Live + 3 factored in, it got 13.3M viewers and 8.5 in the demos.
  6. Marvel's Luke Cage, or simply Luke Cage, is an upcoming American web television series developed for Netflix by Cheo Hodari Coker, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise and is the third in a series of shows that will lead up to a Defenders crossover miniseries. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios, with Coker serving as showrunner. Mike Colter stars as Luke Cage, a former convict with superhuman strength and unbreakable skin who now fights crime. Mahershala Ali, Alfre Woodard, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, Frank Whaley, and Sônia Braga also star. SDCC Teaser:
  7. Netflix has finally announced a premiere date for Marvel's Jessica Jones. All 13 one-hour episodes of the follow-up to Marvel's Daredevil will be released on the streaming service Friday, November 20 at 12:01am PT. Netflix has also released a short teaser trailer to go with this announcement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIKecSNhRv8 In typical Marvel fashion, the trailer doesn't reveal too much, but here's what we know from the show's official logline: "After a tragic ending to her short-lived superhero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases in New York City." The series, which will be tonally different from Daredevil (what that means is still unclear), is described as "suspenseful" and "edgy." And if you know the characters' comic book backstory, you know she's dealing with demons inside and out. In Jessica Jones, Krysten Ritter (Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23) stars as the titular character, David Tennant (Broadchurch, Doctor Who) appears as Kilgrave, and Mike Colter (The Good Wife) plays Luke Cage, who will then be spun-off into his own series as part of Marvel and Netflix's four-series deal that will eventually culminate in a Defenders series. Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval also star. On a scale from 1 to 10, how excited are you for Marvel's Jessica Jones?
  8. The official website for the television anime adaptation of TYPE-MOON and Yuichiro Higashide's Fate/Apocrypha novels began streaming the show's second promotional video on Sunday. The video reveals the show's cast, additional staff, and July premiere. The show will air on Tokyo MX, BS11, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, and MBS. The series will also exclusively stream on Netflix. Higashide himself is in charge of the anime's series scripts, and Yoshiyuki Asai (Charlotte) is directing at A-1 Pictures. Yūkei Yamada is adapting Ototsugu Konoe's original character designs for animation. Masaru Yokoyama (The Lost Village, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Nobunaga Concerto) is composing music. In the story, there was once a Holy Grail War waged by seven Mages and Heroic Spirits in a town called Fuyuki. However, a certain Mage took advantage of the chaos of World War II to steal a Holy Grail. Several decades have passed, and the Yggdmillennia family, who took upon the Holy Grail as its symbol, defected from the Mages' Association and declared their independence. Furious, the Association sent a force to deal with the Yggdmillennia, but they were defeated by the summoned Servants. With the Holy Grail War system changed, war at an unprecedented scale, with seven versus seven, breaks out. And so, the curtain rises on the epoch-making Great Holy Grail War.
  9. Just finished patching the community with some security updates, but also with some new features introduced or existing ones tweaked. So I'll just list a few of them. A bug that allowed members to place moderators on their ignore list has been fixed, so that can no longer happen. A new setting to allow members to lock their own content (status, threads, etc), although I haven't actually enabled it yet for users to openly use. When moving content, moderators are now prompted for where they want to be redirected when it completes. Activity Streams can be created with condensed view as default. An email is now sent when an account is locked for too many bad login attempts (not sure if this is to the user, to the staff, or both yet). The ‘show reply’ button in notification popup reloads the page instead of loading content inline. <- Should fix those nasty errors in PMs. Adds a "More Colors" option to the color dropdown in the editor. That said, our themes Brave and Subway have expired. They need renewing, which is $10 each for a 6 month timespan. Even so, I've left then enabled on the community despite them being out of date for the software, so while they do work, there is likely something that isn't going to work right. Just be forewarned. Does anyone actually use these? If there is enough demand I'll get them renewed, but otherwise I think it's best to continue to try to cut down on the expenses of the community where possible. Titan expires in May, but I'll definitely renew it when required. IPSFocus is also recoding a lot of their themes towards a new framework that won't require updates with absolutely every IPS update which should make things a lot easier for us as well as not require us to keep subscriptions for some of them active at all times.
  10. A week after some big parental revelations on Legion and two weeks before the Marvel series wraps up its first season, today FX made it official that the Noah Hawley created show is coming back for a second reality bending round in 2018. No word on exactly when it will debut or how many episodes Season 2 of the Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza and Katie Aselton starring Legion will have when it airs next year. However, I hear the superpowered drama will likely premiere early in 2018 and will be airing at least as many shows as the eight-episode first season that ends on March 29. “The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement,” said FX’s Eric Schrier on Wednesday as he and fellow president of Original Programming Nick Grad announced the pick-up of the well watched show. “More than a new series, Legion is a wholly original take on the super hero genre,” Schrier added. “Our thanks to Noah Hawley for taking the creative risks and shattering expectations. It’s a privilege to work again with Noah, his producing partners, the outstanding cast and our partners at Marvel Television on another season of Legion.” Unsurprisingly, the Legion love-in was returned by Marvel as well: “We are thrilled there will be a new season of Legion,” said Legion EP and Marvel Television boss Jeph Loeb today. “Noah’s spectacular take on David Haller and all the other characters he brought to life makes us ache for more. We’re particularly proud of our partners at FX and the success we share on our first TV series together.” With Hawley and Loeb as EPs along with Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jim Chory and John Cameron, Legion is produced by FX Productions and Marvel TV.
  11. The wraparound jacket band on Sakurako Gokurakuin's 2nd Brave Star ☆ Romantics manga volume announced on Saturday that Gokurakuin's earlier manga Sekirei is returning as a regular series. Sekirei will resume in this year's 10th issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine on May 2. The advertisement for the manga has the subtitle "Kanojo no Inai 365-Hi no Koto" (About 365 Days Without a Girlfriend). It further teases, "One year with his girlfriend gone. One year until she returns." Yen Press describes the beginning of the original manga: Minato Sahashi is a rounin, a two-time loser who's failed his college placement exams. Just as he's contemplating giving up and heading home, though, a chance encounter changes his life forever! Enter Musubi, a girl who literally falls into Minato's life! Musubi is a Sekirei, a modified human caught up in a game in which only one of her kind can be left standing. In order to be victorious in this contest, though, she needs to find her Ashikabi (her fated partner)...and guess who fits the bill?? Caught up in battle he barely understands, can Minato survive "The Sekirei Project" and emerge victorious? Either way, with his buxom new cohort by his side, his life will certainly never be the same! Gokurakuin had originally stopped the Sekirei manga in August 2015. She began the series in 2004 and the series inspired two anime adaptations in 2008 and 2010. Funimation has released both anime in North America. Yen Press is publishing the Sekirei manga digitally, and will start publish the manga in print in July. Gokurakuin serialized the manga Kaisei no Caricature in Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine from September 2015 to December 2016. She was credited with the original idea, setting, and storyboarding, while Hiromu Mogi wrote the story and Sora Gōto provided the art. Gokurakuin launched Brave Star ☆ Romantics in November 2015.
  12. MAL Second season of Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! Picked up right where it left off.
  13. Just set the CRF and denoiser as high as it lets you go that way the denoiser can wipe away the details leaving you with nothing that could get pixelated from the lack of bitrate. ETRG and YIFY encodess are garbage. You shouldn't be worried about pixelation though, ETRG and YIFY are full of it, as well as lots of banding, and lacking detail, and yet you seemed to enjoy it. You keep contradicting yourself.
  14. The limit was put in place to prevent abuse, but I suppose I could increase it a little to something like 15 or 20. The thing is, other groups such as the Crusader+ (VIP) group get more than 10. Staff and Donators also see an increase in things such as PM box size, likes per day, etc. Think of it as an increase as you move up the totem pole kind of deal. As you contribute to the community, many doors open.
  15. Hopefully. The anime just kind of ended with no conclusion to anything iirc. I was planning to do a remux release of Sekirei at 720p.
  16. A better version of Pokemon. Gotta catch em all. Basically a mix of Pokemon and Zatch Bell with lots of boobs.
  17. Writer and manga creator Daisuke Satō passed away due to ischemic heart disease on March 22. He was 52. His immediate family have already held a funeral service, and his younger sister Yūko Shinmyō was the chief mourner. Satō's works include the High School of the Dead (Highschool of the Dead in Japan) manga with artist Shoji Sato and the Imperial Guards manga with artist Yu Ito. Highschool of the Dead had been effectively on extended hiatus since March 2011, although a new chapter did debut in April 2013.
  18. Come to negotiate, eh, have you, you slimy git? Look what I got. *sings* I got a jar of dirt, I got a jar of dirt, and guess what's inside it?

      It's not just anime, it's EVERYTHING

    3. SallySubs


      Are we yelling at hollywood for fucking up everything they touch? *silently joins the party*

    4. DabDeity710


      I'm still waiting on Hollywood to get scorsese to make a Trump biopic. It'd be a gangster movie in the vein of Wolf of Wallstreet. It'd be just like Wolf of Wallstreet except for the part where he gets arrested for all the super illegal shit he did because Trump's too gangster to get caught. He's so gangster he even became the head of his country's government LEGITIMATELY. Would that not be the greatest gangster film of all time? But on a serious note fuck Trump, fuck him in his filthy orange butthole.

  19. You asked about how to encode them with minimal loss of quality. Now you're contradicting yourself. 2GB for 1080p, 1GB for 720p, and 500MB for 480p on a 2 hour movie looks like garbage from all the bitrate starvation. Enjoy your details completely washed away behind a bed of blocking, pixelation, and other compression artifacts. It's easy to make em look terribad and get the sizes you want. Just use Handbrake and crank the CRF to 28.
  20. Oh, then I'm not sure the length of each part. It doesn't mention it.
  21. Streaming service Hulu and Hakuhodo's in-house animation studio Craftar are partnering to produce an original two-part "smart CG animation" project titled Soutai Sekai (The Relative Worlds). The first part will premiere via streaming on Hulu on April 28, and the second part will premiere on May 5. The anime's official website features the tagline, "The despair of my world was the hope of the other world." The story is set in Japan in 2020. The story centers on Shin Hazama, and a version of himself who led a different life in another Japan appears. A crack opens in the everyday life that he thought was impossible to change. Boys and girls have to decide what to think and choose when the world changes completely. The battle with another world and another self begins. Craftar is credited with the original work and planning for the anime. Yūhei Sakuragi (The Case of Hana & Alice CGI director) is debuting as director at Crafter and writing the script. The artist PALOW. is designing the characters, and Rui Tomono is providing the concept art. Hidehiro Kawai (live-action television series Quartet) is composing the music. Craftar and Lucky Pictures are collaborating on CGI production. Sakuragi previously worked with Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki on the planned "Kemushi no Boro" (Boro the Caterpillar) CG short for the Ghibli Museum. He also served as CG director for Japan Animator Expo's 32nd short "Neon Genesis IMPACTS," which debuted in 2015. Lucky Pictures worked with Sakuragi on the short. Craftar previously collaborated with Marza Animation Planet to produce a 13-minute short adaptation of Genki Kawamura's Moom picture book. Hulu Japan and California-based studio Tonko House are also planning a series of shorts titled "Dam Keeper no Nakama-tachi."
  22. It says right in the first paragraph. "an original two-part "smart CG animation" project titled Soutai Sekai (The Relative Worlds). The first part will premiere via streaming on Hulu on April 28, and the second part will premiere on May 5. " So it's two parts only, and the first will be out April 28th and the last part will be out May 5th.
  23. rickyhorror has ripped it in 720p but he only shared it on AnT. So maybe someone with an account there would be willing to upload it for you here.
  24. Probably because I was seeding it. =P
  25. My favorite is anyone except Canada. FU Canada for sending us Beiber. Nah but seriously, since I've never left my country, I couldn't say what other country I'd prefer other than it. I wouldn't mind relocating to some place that looked nice, never got hotter than 85F, but didn't remain freezing year-round, while having blazingly fast internet within a country that didn't try to block half the internet.
