Release

June 16, 2021 We released Hime-chan’s Ribbon 41v2 and 42. (See below)

May 30, 2021

May 18, 2021

We have 4 active projects: HCR, Gyu, BoDv2, and GfW Batch. Each is being slow due to different reasons. HCR - no fixed editors (both the original encoder and editor had to leave due to real life reasons). Gyu - its encoder is busy. BoDv2 - non-English translators are not very quick, although things are moving positively. GfW Batch - re-encoding many files, converting hard-subs to soft-subs, is surely time-consuming.

That being said, we did complete several projects, like Fushigiboshi no Futagohime (1st season), Floral Magician Mary Bell, Minky Momo: The Bridge Over Dreams (v1), The Star of Cottonland, Tokyo Mew Mew, and recently, Goldfish Warning! (v1). It’s just that we’re not very fast.

The current status and planned new projects are:

May 12, 2021 We released Goldfish Warning! 40–54 [v2]. (More info)

UFO Camp!

NOTE (File Format Change): Starting from this episode, we are now fully softsubbing HCR as MKV. OP/ED, especially OP, may be too CPU-intensive for old computers (you can just skip it). Episode 41v2 was also released in the same format.

So in this episode, Hime-chan, Daichi, and others visit the mountainous town of Okutama.

Little Lovers

This is the v2 release of Episode 41: a fully softsubbed MKV, as opposed to v1 (hardsubbed MP4). For more info about the format change, see Episode 42.

May 12, 2021 — OUT: Goldfish Warning! 40–54 [v2]

The first batch (1 of 3) for Goldfish Warning! v2s

This is a set of 15 files — Episodes 40 through 54 (last), of which ten files are new (a few mistranslations fixed, and generally, slightly tweaked and improved), while five episodes (48, 49, 51, 52, 53v2) remain unchanged, as they’re already good enough.

These eight files are higher-quality (256 MiB/ep) than the v1s (180 MiB/ep): 40v2, 41v2, 42v2, 43v2, 44v2, 45v2, 46v2, 47v2.

This is supposed to be the first batch for the softsub version of Goldfish Warning!. The second batch (ETA: a few months?) will be 20v2–39v2, the third batch (no ETA) will be 1v2–19v2. Batches for Goldfish Warning! v2 are MKV-only; AVI (hardsub) versions are not planned, except that the AVI version of 53v2 is available.

Wapiko’s Elopement Panic /
Love You, Tanakayama-san

This is our v2 release of Episode 53, where the next episode titles said in the preview were fixed. It also includes one minor timing tweak and about 30 additional “cleaned frames” (meaning, dirt was removed as in the following example):

The visual difference is not so significant though, because frame-by-frame cleaning is routinely done in our GfW releases and noticeably dirty frames were already cleaned in v1.
