MPC-BC (Media Player Classic: Black Edition)


September 18, 2019: Gyu07 = finally encoded, probably to be released this month. GfW48 = test-encoded; so far QCed by 2 of the 3 QCers and about 10 minor editing problems have been found. To be re-encoded shortly.

September 12, 2019: GfW48 = QC this weekend; more than 50% chance of September release. HCR42 = still editing; the editor in charge is relatively fast. Gyu07 = prob. the release as soon as the encoder (a busy person) is back. — All in all, it seems that 2019 is going to be our most productive year in the recent seven years (2013–19).

September 7, 2019: Dr. Slump references in Goldfish Warning! 48: (1) Aoi wearing an Arale/Senbei-style pink cap; (2) Wapiko running à la Arale (she even says “Kiiin!” in one scene).

September 5, 2019: Goldfish Warning! 48 has been 100% edited (both halves). To be test-encoded this weekend. Release ETA = the second half of September or (if delayed for some reason) October.

September 2, 2019: Hime-chan’s Ribbon 42 has been about 50% edited (as of Aug 26). Gyu 7 will be the next release (still to be encoded), then probably Goldfish Warning! 48 (2nd half edited, timed, and now being typeset; 1st half translated but not yet edited).

August 21, 2019: Himeko’s birthday is July 30, 1977 in the original manga version, while it is January 31, 1980 in the anime version.

August 11, 2019: Current status: Futago-hime Gyu! 7 = the script is ready; the encoder is on vacation. Hime-chan’s Ribbon 42 = edit in progress. Goldfish Warning! 48 = the 2nd half edited; the 1st half not yet ready; raw cleaned.

August 1, 2019: Hime-chan’s Ribbon 42 is now ready to edit.

July 31, 2019: Gyu 08 has been typeset.

July 27, 2019: Gyu 07 is ready to release, after just re-muxing (unless QCers find anything new that they want to change).

July 26, 2019: Goldfish Warning! 48: The 2nd half has been edited nicely (the 1st half not yet ready). Gyu 07 is practically ready both script-wise and encoding-wise (video). We may start working on Hime-chan’s Ribbon 42 soon.

June 24, 2019 (18:54 UTC): We have released Hime-chan’s Ribbon 41. The bridge depicted in this episode may be based on a real place (see a separate page for more info).

May 23, 2019: After a 2-year hiatus [HCR40 was released on 2017-05-10], we’re now restarting Hime-chan’s Ribbon Episode 41.

May 4, 2019 (20:20 UTC): We have released Goldfish Warning! 47. This episode has a few interesting aspects. You can read Translator’s Notes after you watch it!

Little Lovers

Little Lovers is a slice-of-life episode. One of its main topics is a realistic problem for little children, but is rarely depicted in anime shows, perhaps because it’s not very exciting nor fantastic (and so not marketable). When the seiyū for Yumeko voices Fake Yumeko (who is actually Himeko), the way she speaks is subtly different (Himeko-ish) — nicely nuanced! Also interestingly, Shintaro and Ichiko (“Icchan”) are voiced by the same person.
