  1. Anyone have any experience with Afro encodes? I wanna upgrade my rather shitty copy of Akira, and the two best copies I found were Afro and REVO.

      Have you seen Afro's encode tho? I reckon it's better than REVO's, to be honest.

      Have not I wasn't saying for this movie specifically I meant in general

      For example, Afro's encode of Sword of the Stranger is better than REVO's because REVO decided to degrain for some reason. Then again, that issue doesn't really apply for Akira, which they obviously didn't degrain, so it's a bit of a moot point I guess.


      Even so, I've already downloaded and watched Afro's encoded anyways. Deed is done. Looked fantastic, in case anyone was wondering. I would recommend Afro wholeheartedly.

  2. Does anyone know of a good BD release of Osomatsu-San? Or are we stuck with HorribleSubs?

      I suppose I could encode it when I have the time.

      vcb might be hevc but shouldn't be bad-- actually, downloading it now I just saw it.

      @Arian, the lack of releases isn't really due to a lack of good encodes over a lack of good subs (I think, though fwiw I haven't seen many options apart from VCB). Plus there's the broadcast versions of episode 1 and 3 (iirc, might be episode 2 as well) that were replaced/edited on the BDs because of copyright issues.


      All that said, I would encourage any attempts at a nice release for this; just don't want to mislead you, there are indeed some encodes out there, just no proper releases that put them together with good subs that I know of.

  3. I can be patient. Not like there's not a shit load of other things one could watch in the meantime.
  4. Hyouka Part 2 is out on ADC. r e m u x w h e n ? /s dkm not begging, just awkwardly informing :^)

    Samurai Jack: The Complete Series Blu-ray

    Those are cropped from the 1920*1080 theatrical event trailer on Youtube, they aren't necessarily representative of the actual BD sets.
  6. FWIW, I see no difference between Kamigami and yan apart from the fact yan is much darker. I would definitely keep Kamigami.
  7. @Catar, I seem to remember you mentioning a well filtered/upscaled version of Now and Then, Here and There with the best picture quality out there for the series (I can't remember where/when, but I do remember it), but I can't find it anywhere. I think it might be on U2? Not really sure. Not asking for a release from you, just a lead on where I can find this upscale-- kuchikirukia's picture quality has left me kind of dissapointed, so I've been looking for a better release. It's no problem if you've not got any leads though, I can make do just fine with your existing release if necessary. Thanks a lot.
  8. Bought Shin Godzilla on BD but I might return it. Anyone know if Funimation BDs ever really go out of print or get hard to find? $27 (taxes in) is pretty steep.

      I actually archived this movie mad long ago still haven't gotten around to it

    3. PDoggy77


      I doubt any competitors are really looking to get the Shin Godzilla license like they were for FMA. It wouldn't be profitable,  I imagine the large majority of the people that would buy it on BD have already bought the Funimation BD.

    4. PDoggy77


      At least, I seriously doubt anyone like Aniplex will get their hands on this. I think I'll return it. Besides, turns out they decided to remove the Japanese Evangelion like titles for all the locations and characters in the movie, which was a rather important part of the movie imo.


      I just dropped $40 on a new record anyways so I should probably save some cash.

  9. Hark0n took my words (or reason for you to work on this) right out of my mouth. BTW, do you think you could include the lossless Japanese mono track? I have a sneaking suspicion that the 5.1 track on REVO's release (and likely on the Discotek BD as well) is an upmix, so it might be worth including the mono track or replacing the 5.1 with it completely. Depends on if I'm right or not, I suppose. Also, could you consider including the BD subs (at least the 80s ones, maybe not the regular subs if they aren't any different from REVO's subs) and the "family friendly" Manga dub? For nerdy completionist reasons. If you decide not to include any of the above for whatever reasons, I'm sure I could just (very nicely) ask Hark0n to mux them out for me separately considering he's got the BD. Thanks again. Really appreciate you doing this.
  10. Say, Catar, you do the occasional movie, right? How would you feel about doing a remux of Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro? I've already looked at all the sources I could find, but I'll spare you the details until I know whether you're interested or not.
  11. So... supposedly the 4K Bluray of Your Name has shown up on Nyaa. 4K encode soon?

      My theory is that they're not actually decrypting them via exploit, but by whichever movies they can manage to get a leaked private AACS2.0 key. Thus the random selection and slow turnout.


      If they had a true decryption method, I'd expect more releases and/or at regular intervals.

    Moodkiller's Topic Index

    Ah, that's how I always figured it was pronounced, but all this "platter" and "catter" talk had me a little skeptical. And I haven't got it downloaded, but there is that comparison courtesy of someone on AB that Moodkiller posted. I couldn't see any huge differences between the two, but in the 4th set in the AB comparison, I could see some detail that looked to be preserved in VCB and missed in CGi-- specifically in the white fuzz on the upper middle area of the image. Again, in the 3rd set in the AB comparison, it looks as though VCB retains more detail around the middle of the image, most obviously visible in the two people walking to the right of the logo/title. To my eyes, it seems VCB retains ever so slightly more detail, whilst also being nearly half the size of CGi. I also noticed from the media info's that VCB is a couple years more recent of an encode compared to Coalgirls, for whatever that may be worth to you. Unless I'm mistaken or have missed anything in the comparisons, I would say VCB looks like the better option.

    @Catar (if your name is pronounced that way)-- which encode are you using for your release? Would I be correct in assuming it's going to be Coalgirls? (which seems a bit bloated for my tastes, at least compared to VCB's encode) edit-- Oh, would you look at that. Seems this is my thousandth post. Huh.
  14. FWIW, I've watched Commie's BD release, and I found the subs to be quite good. Seemingly free of the memery that everyone likes to complain about in their releases.
