    Agreed. It's really good so far but who knows if it'll stay that way.
  2. SCY - Anime/Cartoon Index

    @_Akshay_ This site was pretty good for comparing subs for newer stuff: https://fansub.co/ Ex: https://fansub.co/made-in-abyss/ Looks like it's gone inactive recently though.

    I used to be like this. I still prefer dubs if they're available, but there are too many amazing shows that will (in all likelihood) never be dubbed. Monogatari is what finally pushed me over the edge. Now for new stuff I usually always watch subbed unless it's being simuldubbed, and even then if the show is really good I often get impatient and watch ahead with the sub.

    Maybe the poll should just have the top 5 most-nominated shows. That way people who nominated shows that have no chance of winning can vote for their second-favorite and the outcome would be less predictable.

    I feel like that's probably hurting Land of the Lustrous too. ;_: Haven't seen Inuyashiki yet but it's on my PTW list. So far my AOTY is still Made in Abyss.
  6. [NOMINATIONS] Anime of Fall 2017

    Land of the Lustrous (Houseki no Kuni), for sure. All it needs to reach 10/10 is a second season with a proper conclusion. Ancient Magus' Bride is another contender if it finishes strong, but it's still airing. I also hear that March Comes in Like a Lion and Girls' Last Tour are really good, but they're still on my PTW list.
  7. Need help with Blu-ray viewing/ripping

    Dang, wish I'd known about MakeMKV earlier. This site needs a wiki. Anyway, if HD space is an issue, AnyDVD (ignore the name, it does BDs too) can decrypt a disc on the fly without having to save video files to your drive. Then you can play/rip the m2ts files directly from the disc in your app of choice. It costs money, but there are cracked versions on TPB.
  8. Masking complex backgrounds in Aegisub

    Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
  9. Does anyone know if some lunatic within FFF manually created 239 shapes in ASSDraw or if there's a script/plugin/external program that can do this?:
  10. Nozomi Aria Upscale Screenshots

    Nothing particularly "good". Depends on what you're looking for. Japanese audio is all that's available right now. niizk's DVDrip is probably the best video at the moment, and Sally for the best subs and FLAC JP audio. Once Nozomi's kickstarter ships, we'll have English audio and possibly (but unlikely) a better video source. At that point, according to the spreadsheet, HTT will put together the best of what's available.
  11. Nozomi Aria Upscale Screenshots

    Yeah but the DVDs are blurry crap, as-is. If Nozomi could do it right, it would save someone else from doing a quality upscale that's probably way more work for 52+ episodes than anyone is willing to do for free.
  12. Nozomi Aria Upscale Screenshots

    Here's another comparison someone posted between Nozomi's upscale and nizzk's DVD-rip: http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/124095 I don't suppose there are any skilled encoders here who might want to take a stab at upscaling some scenes to show what it could look like? I have no idea to what degree the backers will be able to influence the production process, but we currently have a limited window where Nozomi claims to be listening to us, so it might be worth trying to convince them to do it correctly. I'd love to have a version of this show that doesn't look like ass when all is said and done.
  13. Has anyone else seen the screenshots Nozomi just posted for their upcoming English release of Aria? They don't look great. Some relevant user comments from Kickstarter for those of you who can't see them: And Nozomi's response to the comments: A little disconcerting that Nozomi thought those screenshots were ready to be shown to the public, but I'm glad that at least there are people in the Kickstarter speaking up about it, and Nozomi claims to be listening to them. Hopefully they can get it sorted out before the release...

  15. Seedbox questions

    I assume that with 4TB, you're not seeding your entire collection. Do you just download to local storage and then delete it off the server after you've met the minimum requirements of whatever private tracker you're using?
