  1. What display do you use to watch anime?

    I currently have a Dell S2716DG connected to my computer. It's a 2560x1440 27" TN display that's really meant for gaming more than anything. I occasionally watch anime on it, but most of the time my movie/series viewing is done on the Sony 1080p TV in the living room since it has much better color accuracy and image uniformity. I would be less concerned about comments regarding how anime looks on a particular display, and focus on the real world results of response time, color accuracy, backlight bleed/flickering, contrast, ect. A quality display that is decently calibrated is going to provide a nice image regardless of whether the content is an Anime, Cartoon, Video Game, Live Action Movie, or your Desktop Environment. If anyone is aware of any websites that do extensive in-depth testing and reviews of displays that equals/exceeds TFT Central's I'd love to hear about them. As far as I know, no one reviews PC displays as well as they do. http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/ I'm not sure where you stand regarding your knowledge of displays, but if you find yourself not understanding something in a review then you should reference it in their specifications section. http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/specs.htm I've been using this website for years to decide on what panels to purchase for myself and others. You may have already been aware of that site as well, but for those who aren't, there you go.
  2. Ed, Edd N Eddy - The Thai PAL DVDs

    Is it just surface damage? If so, then you can get the disc resurfaced and there's a really good chance that'll fix it. The video game store where I used to live had a nice resurfacing machine. I went to them several times with DVDs and PS1 games that needed to have scratches buffed out due to playback issues. Just throwing the idea out there to be helpful, if you hadn't considered it yet.
  3. Monogatari Series

    I'm honestly not sure what the best subbed release is of this show. I would follow this thread though, since it will most likely be finished using the best sources available. If you read through the thread comments you'll see that another Kametsu member has put a lot of effort into modifying the subs for this show. I'm not sure how far along the project is, currently showing as "In Progress". As far as complete releases with subs, Coalgirls may be the best, but I can't say that with absolute certainty. I highly recommend you check out Catar's Index (CTR Index) if you're looking for archival quality copies of any other shows, as well as the official Kametsu projects.
  4. [REQ] Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2012 1080p AMZN WEBRIP.

    I know Amazon WEB-DLs tend to be higher quality than iTunes, so if that is the case with this show then I'd love to have the entire series from Amazon in 1080p as well. This is my youngest's favorite show so it'd be great to archive the best version available. Has anyone even downloaded these from Amazon yet?
  5. skylander season 2

    For something like that you'll need to check the Mini Encodes distro. If it isn't available there then you can make a request for it in the requests section if you cannot create them yourself.
  6. skylander season 2

    You can access the links to see the file size for yourself if you need to know the exact size for each episode. They average about 800-900MB per episode and are 1080p.
  7. skylander season 2

    Netflix WEB-DLs for Season 1 and 2 are available in the Cartoon Distro. https://kametsu.com/topic/60528-skylanders-academy-season-1-2-1080p-nf-web-dl-dd51-x264-ajp69strife-season-2-added/?do=findComment&comment=575173
  8. [REQ] Samurai Jack The Complete Series BD

    Unfortunately the widescreen portions of s01-s04 are contained inside the pillerboxed 4:3 image, and do not expand out to fill a 16:9 widescreen TV. Appears we only get lossy audio as well. "The widescreen scenes do not expand to fill the screen. You get letterboxing and pillarboxing at the same time. The audio is Dolby Digital 2.0 at 192 kbps but sounds better than I expected. I set my receiver for ProLogic II and I like the way it sounds." Source - http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=295677&page=15 Still waiting for an indepth review to show up regarding the video quality and how it compares to the DVDs.
  9. No kidding, I've been here for several months now and I still feel excited like it's the day I first stumbled across Kametsu. I'm not aware of any release that has done anything special with Trigun yet when it comes to good filtering and encoding, which is a shame really. I did notice a release on Animebytes with the word "Remastered" tagged onto it, but I haven't checked it out yet. I think there was something in the description that turned me off from downloading it, can't remember off the top of my head what it was though. Open a dialogue with any active Remuxers or Project Crew members. Catar also has a spreadsheet tracking what's currently in the works and what is still needing to be done for a bunch of anime. Should be a link to it in the OP of his index I believe. If you pick up a project be sure to announce it so you can avoid any overlap with someone else who might be starting work on the same anime.
  10. SCY - Anime/Cartoon Index

    I haven't read anything about the Spanish DVDs, but if the info I found about the source that was used for the German broadcasts and DVDs is correct then I don't have high hopes that it will be superior to the NTSC DVDs. I made a post about it in another thread. I guess you never really know unless you check for yourself though.

    Yep yep, sorry I haven't gotten them to you yet, just been busy with IRL stuff. I should have the free time late tonight to get everything ripped for you and get the file transfer started. The MySpleen torrent and TPB torrent are definitely the same DVDs that I own. I have the original release DVDs, and from what I read the re-release of Vol 1-3 was just a reissue of the same discs, and unchanged with the exception that the un-edited Xmas episode was used in place of the edited version on Vol 3. So as far as NTSC copies go there's no variance between releases so nothing to compare. @Scyrous is obviously free to download the DVDs from anywhere he can find them. I'll still be making mine available either way. I haven't found any info yet on Dutch audio. My copy has English and Spanish, and the German DVDs have German and English. Not sure about the language options on the AU DVDs. Let's summon @TheOneWhoSees and see if he can let us know what languages are available on his discs whenever he gets a chance.

    Dude, you have my support on this shit right here, even if you're just flirting with the idea of doing it at some point in the future. If you by chance need stuff just let me know, I have things.
  13. Well damn, that sucks. I just read through the MetaX Help.pdf and it states that it has to rewrite the file to add meta data, so there are options to Keep Original File or Auto Delete ect. So it would appear that it is indeed demuxing and remuxing in the background. Didn't see anything regarding attachments in the help file either.
  14. @Audioboxer I'm not at my computer right now to check and see if this is possible, but if MetaX does not remux the files then maybe it just disabled attachments in the MKV header. Load up a file in MKVtoolnix's Header Editor and check the flags to see if something like this has happened.
  15. Are you considering polishing up the subs for Catar's "Forbidden Taboo" release? Or is that just wishful thinking on my part? Sounds like that's all it needs now, unless I'm missing something.
