To Love Ru – 01 released

22 September, 2008 (07:55) | To Love Ru | By: jama

IMPORTANT NOTE: To all the people who were downloading the first To Love Ru torrent: There’s a 2nd one now which got the exact same files. Just rename the files to [Yabai]_To_LOVE-Ru_-_01_[DVD][ED651E3F].mkv [Yabai]_To_LOVE-Ru_ED_[DVD][EF8BFCD1].mkv [Yabai]_To_LOVE-Ru_OP_[DVD][149603D7].mkv and you can continue downloading them from where you left off. Note that I’ve only added [DVD] tags, that’s really all I changed. Sorry for the fuck up and happy leeching

Surprise! Surprise! It’s yet another new series we’re doing!

You might already have assumed that though if you have taken a look at the projects page. We have To Love Ru listed  there for quite some time now. Anyways, big thanks goes to the folks of AnimeYoshi, we used their scripts and stuff. Since I myself was part of the team who worked on To Love Ru I kinda want to finish what I’ve started to work on. (You recall, AniYoshi dropped TLR back in August due to lack of translators.) So, we’re not only borrowing their scripts but also their karaokes, but with the exception that we only really “borrow” the styling of the text and the “effects” themselves.

Let me explain what I mean with that: Spinal, the leader of AniYoshi, deleted all the To Love Ru stuff from the ftp and afterwards announced to the staff that the group was going to drop the series. Hence, all the scripts, karaokes and typesetting files are lost and we didn’t have a chance to rescue them (all of the staff members a sloppy bitches, or rather, everyone deleted the script of each episode after said episode got released). Hence, this is no joint and we only credit AniYoshi in the Opening, as we had to do most of the stuff ourselves. We had to reverse engineer both the OP and ED kara, and we’ll have to redo all the typesetting as well. But at least we were able to get the main scripts from the actual releases! Here’s a list of the staff which worked on To LOVE-Ru:


Translation – Mitsurugi (1-11)
Translation Check
– Shin-kun (1-9), Gekkou (10-11)
– jama (1-11; my humble self :P)
– AizawaYuuichi (1-11)
– JJS (1-4), Takashi (5-11)
Karaoke – kingofbeer
Quality Check
– Takashi (1-11), KazuoSan (1-9), bicube (10-11)
– Skyward (1-11)
Project Leader
– Takashi (aka the fag who didn’t do anything but command us around ^^)

Yabai Translation Check – Ulrezaj
– jama (shifting 1-11)
– filthychimp
– jama
OP Karaoke
– jama (reverse engineered)
ED Karaoke
– Skyward (reverse engineered)
Quality Check
– jama, bicube
– Skyward

We decided to check the translation of the AniYoshi scripts again, and reedit some things. The scripts already had a high quality so not much was changed (but we were able to increase the quality a bit more :P). Also, if you wonder why we didn’t just credit the staff in the OP, well, we intended to. But we don’t know who will be the translator for episode 12+ and maybe some of the staff has to go and new one comes in at a later point etc etc. As we are using ordered chapters we can’t just edit the credits afterwards. So, this ends my monologue, below you’ll find some pictures and the torrent/IRC links. Have fun watching. :)

Yes, it's soft!

Yes, it's real!

Yes, you're a winner!

Yes, there was a 2nd girl as well... (actually, there are many, many more! )

It’s called stealing of subs.

I was one of those people who waited months for AniYoshi to do a widescreen release of this series, only to hear that unfortunately, they had dropped it (no hard feeling there, I understand the group was going through some difficulties). So, not too long ago, i downloaded all of the AniYoshi releases and a bunch of DVD raws from TV-Japan, with the intent of extracting the AniYoshi softsubs (I dunno how to do this but I figured it couldn’t be hard) and whacking them on the DVD raws. I also downloaded a couple of other DVD releases that had muxed Ayako or Aniyoshi scripts to DVD raws, but was disappointed by each of them.

And now it turns out that you guys are going to be doing this series. With AniYoshi quality subs. In DVD quality. I have only one thing to say.


This, coupled with the fact that you are also doing Seto no Hanayome, makes me want to hug you guys. In a totally non-gay but extremely appreciative way.

tl;dr – thnx guys, u r winnars.

Heh, you’re welcome. The TLR team is rather speedy too, so we’ll keep up with the new releases of DVDs hopefully (right now episodes 1-5 are out on DVD I think).

Thank you guys for the release. Is there any possibility that you will release the creditless and karaokeless Openings and Endings for To Love Ru sometime in the future?

If there are creditless versions on future DVDs, then yes, we’ll release the creditless and karaokeless OPs/EDs.

Aren’t the OP/ED creditless?
Just tell Skyward to cut the OP/ED from the actual episode without hardsubbing the karaoke or something lol

The OP/ED arn’t creditless. When (if) I get a dvd that has the creditless OP/ED, I’ll make jama release that also. Probably with a second track containing the credited OP/ED (no karaoke though) in the same way manabi was done. Till then, wait patiently.

Sorry to be a n00b but DVD = titties, right?

@ prophetic. Sankaku Complex had a very informative post called ‘To Love-Ru DVD vs TV Ero-Analysis’ which answers your question nicely.

In short, there does seem to be less censorship in the DVD version, but no actual “titties”. The Sankaku Complex post only covers the first DVD release though, so you can always keep hoping that the future DVD releases will relax the censorship even more :)

Has something happened to the torrent link for Ep. 1? I get ‘Torrent matching query does not exist’ when I try to get it.

Also the megaupload link appears to be broken, it only plays the first 3 minutes and then loops itself, is there a reason for that?

There’s nothing wrong with the torrent, so I suggest you to download it from there, or join #yabai on and download the episode from a bot.

Did you check the CRC of the file? I downloaded the files, all three were fine. Maybe you have to update CCCP, you can get it from

jadesterne: You can visit our IRC channel and download the OP from one of our bots. Read this guide if it’s your first time using IRC:
Once you’re in #yabai just ask how to download stuff from the bots, someone of the staff surely will help you out.

Or just get the file from the torrent: [Yabai]_To_LOVE-Ru_-_01_[DVD][including_OP_ED]
(In µTorrent you can select the file, go to the tab “Pieces” and then mark the ED and actual episode / right click / Don’t Download – I’m sure in other bittorrent clients this works as well)

These are labeled as DVD… yet the ED is clearly not the DVD’s ED. Sup?

I don’t know what you’re talking about. This is the ED taken from the DVD.
