      [CRITICAL] DNS resolution error   03/17/2018

      We recently switched nameservers for the kametsu.com domain. The domain's registrar did not correctly handle this transition (it did not respect the zone parameters whatsoever), and this caused a DNS resolution error with some DNS resolvers (such as with Google's public DNS, ISP-run DNS resolvers, etc). If you are just now seeing this after finally being able to reconnect to the site, you have my sincerest apologies, I couldn't have anticipated that the registrar would muck the transition up. Otherwise, the site's been fully functional without issues. If there are any problems to report, please PM me.

  1. You can have your cake, but you can't eat it too. Well in regards to American Cartoons, the majority is Amazon or iTunes untouched WEB-DLs, and groups don't really matter or change from season to season. You'd end up with 6+ groups on a single series. Which can end up being a pain to list everything. That and a lot of them have other users posting links throughout the thread on various hosts. It's just overall a lot less regulated and the release groups mean a lot less in terms of how much difference would be between one release and another, since unlike anime it only relies on source ripped from and not subtitle work, etc... and since most cartoons never see a Blu-ray release, you never see actual proper encodes done, just direct rips. And it seems things like this haven't been updated to reflect any changes done: https://kametsu.com/forum/66-distro-rules-user-indexes/#elForumRules (eh guess you gotta actually click the link for it to pop up, can't direct link, click on Content Distro Rules & Posting Etiquette) I've considered paying for the "Hide Links" app for the forum, where you can use the Hide tag on the download links in specific and a user only gets access to them in the thread after they've either clicked Like on the post or commented at least once in the thread. It would boost user participation, but would it be any beneficial gain is another question. It's likely to end up in the same loop that requiring more posts did previously. Though at the same time, it would also help figure out which accounts are being used to leak posts to reddit as we can see exactly which users have either clicked like or posted in the thread and narrow it down some. So there is at least some other benefits to be had from it.... but it would also be something uploaders would have to adopt to using if it was implemented and idk how some feel about such a thing. As for "Repeat threads for identical content will be removed. If you are posting a scene release, P2P release or otherwise public release, please make sure it has not already been posted on the distro boards. If you are posting your own rips/encodes, you never need to worry about this rule." There has been cases where a user wanted to mirror an existing upload but the thread starter who posted the release originally didn't want to share the spotlight in his thread and threw a fit about others sharing links in his thread. So we've just pretty much allowed co-existing threads at uploaders discretion, while usually recommending sharing the mirrored links in the original thread but with permission from the thread starter. But I do understand why having multiple threads can seem a bit silly.
  2. DmonHiro 720p BD Quality

    Reinforce x264 settings though aren't very good which makes his encodes require more bitrate to maintain quality while losing details in dark scenes due to poor aq. They're okay if you're just wanting a quick 8-bit encode with lossless audio rather than a full BDRemux, but if you're wanting quality then you're better off waiting. Some of my favorite raw groups include: mawen1250, Kagura, Yousei, Beatrice, LittleBakas! (mawen's new home), Winter. Some of my favorite non-raw-group encoders include: REVO, Judgment, eXmendiC, Baal. I've learned quite a bit from some of these guys through the years. But yeah pretty much same sentiments here about DmonHiro. The guy lies so much you can't trust what he says. A big portion of his "releases" are re-encodes from other groups while he lies saying he encoded them from BDMV. And his subtitles are usually just HorribleSubs slightly shifted but still mistimed with scene-bleeds galore with no fonts included and the subtitles supplied externally. Might be better just sticking with HorribleSubs webrips till something else comes along. Not sure anything could be worse aside from a remux using Moozzi2/CherryBoyz encodes.
  3. Did you resample the script to the correct resolution of the video?

  5. Eh, I think you misunderstood what I meant. Even if he was 100% Japanese, it'd have no baring on the decision because the animation studio, Rooster Teeth, is a US-based company and the animation was done on US soil. While technically there isn't really anything separating anime from cartoons aside from the fandom which mostly is due to the stigmata in the US that cartoons = for kids and anime fans wanting to seem elite by saying they don't watch cartoons, they watch anime... The classification taken from sources like aniDB and MAL state that for it to be considered an anime and thus allowed in their anime database, that the animation studio must have connections to a Japanese company. This is why "chinese anime" still get classified as anime, although people generally classify anime as strictly "Japanese animation". Because these chinese anime are often animated by studios in Japan or the companies that do animate them also operate within Japan such as Haoliners.
  6. Nationality of the creator (Monty Oum being part Japanese) doesn't really affect the product. According to Oum, he was "Cambodian, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Japanese." He was born in Rhode Island though and lived in the US all of his life. RWBY is officially classified as an American "anime-style" web-series cartoon. The production company "Rooster Teeth" is based in Austin, Texas and Los Angeles, California. People still clamor for Avatar ~ The Last Airbender to be considered anime, despite being done by Nickelodeon. In it's case though, the animation studio "DR Movie" is actually Korean. Generally most people follow what aniDB and MAL classify as anime, though on rare occasions such as with "The Red Turtle" they failed us, when they opted to not classify it as anime despite being made at Miyazaki's request and animated and co-produced by Studio Ghibli in Japan for the French-based company Wild Bunch.
  7. Yu-Gi-Oh GX IRC links messed up

    I wish the parser could be modified to update on page load (so when someone needs it) rather than just updating at certain intervals even if no one is viewing. Could just lower the time limit, but not sure how much load it'd put on things to just rapidly recache itself, but could certainly lower it some from the current 15min. It's simple enough to do.
  8. Black Clover

    The story finally picks up with episode 14 and fortunately so does the pacing. It's definitely improved during this arc. Episode 18 was really nicely done and that cliffhanger is definitely a step in the right direction.
  9. A call for donations

    I'm not too familiar with utilizing cryptocurrency other than Stripe accepting Bitcoin and converting it to USD automatically for us to use. If someone could point me a way to accept cryptocurrencies other ways and how to actually use them to pay for things (or convert to USD so that it can be), then I'd be happy to add it to the list of available options.
  10. Why Has Animation Quality Tanked In Super?

    Super overall has had terrible art and low grade animation, with only a handful of episodes being done really nicely. It's simply Toei's trademark to make episodes as quick and cheaply as possible and then slightly touch them up on Blu-ray. Heck Super episode 5 via TV airing was utterly ridiculous (look it up on Google for comparisons). Ooze-Vegeta/Duplicate-Vegeta whatever they called it, that entire arc was extremely filler-like quality amongst a series that has mostly seemed like filler to begin with.
  11. I would love to see more BTOOOM! animated as well. Was definitely better than a lot of the anime fandom makes it sound.
  12. RapidCRC like program for linux

    I don't know of any tool/software, but it can be done via the terminal. To use the command, you first need to install libarchive-zip-perl package. Which can be done using: sudo apt-get install libarchive-zip-perl Then it's as simple as using: crc32 "file" Unfortunately I don't know of a way to run crc check on an entire directory at once or how to automate adding the CRC value to filenames.
  13. The April issue of Shinchosha's Monthly Comic @Bunch magazine revealed on Wednesday that Junya Inoue's Btooom! manga is inspiring a spinoff that will debut in the next issue in March. Yūya Kanzaki (Ouroboros, Impossibility Defense) is drawing the series titled Btooom! U-18. Inoue's main Btooom! manga will also end in the May issue of the magazine. The 25th compiled book volume (seen right) revealed on February 9 that the manga will have two endings, and consequently, two versions of the 26th and final volume. The manga volume asks readers what they would do if they were the protagonist Ryōta Sakamoto at a pivotal point in the manga's story. Depending on the reader's choice, the story progresses either into the "Light" ending culminating in the "Friendship Arc," or the "Dark" ending culminating in the "Truth Arc." The "Light" ending is already being serialized as part of the manga's main serialization in Shinchosha's Monthly Comic @Bunch magazine starting from the February issue last December, and ending in the May issue in March. The "Dark" ending will have a short serialization in Shinchosha's B Bunch magazine starting in June. Both versions of the 26th volume will ship in July. The Monthly Comic @Bunch magazine previously announced in December that the manga would end in the magazine's May issue. Inoue revealed on Twitter in September that the series will end in the 26th compiled book volume. The manga entered its final arc in the 23rd volume. The story centers around Sakamoto, a NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) young man and a top-ranked player in the online combat game "Btooom!". One day, he wakes up on a tropical island without remembering how he got there. He sees a figure in the distance and asks for help. However, the figure responds by throwing something at Ryūta — a "BIM" bomb. Inoue launched the series in Shinchosha's Weekly Comic Bunch magazine in 2009, and then transferred it to Monthly Comic @Bunch in 2011. Yen Press is publishing the manga in English. The company released the 19th compiled volume last November, and the 20th volume will ship on March 6. Kotono Watanabe directed a 12-episode anime adaptation of the series in 2012. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in 2013. The manga also inspired a multiplayer smartphone game from developer Asobimo that launched last February.
  14. A Compiled list of Filler Episodes!

    By episode number obviously.
