Spice & Wolf II BD (720p) batch

14 November, 2010 (06:53) | Spice and Wolf | By: jama

(If you haven’t watched season 1 yet and wonder what all this is about, we recommend you download niizk’s BD rips.)

This has got to be the shortest project in Yabai’s history! Actually, it started out as a Mazui project: As we (Mazui) weren’t going anywhere with that planned batch torrent of S&W2 (TV raws with QCd scripts), I decided at the end of July to redo Spice & Wolf II completely by doing BD rips. I set my deadline to be August 31, and what do you know, after one month of hard work I got all episodes ready on August 30. Due to various circumstances this didn’t get released on August 31 under the [Mazui] tag though and instead became a Yabai project. Basically that meant more QCing and editing were going to be done. Among other things consistency in the scripts has improved a lot thanks to that. Staff credits look somewhat like this:

Original scripts: 00 (Frostii), 01-12 (Mazui)
TLC: Ulrezaj
Editing: desolo
QCing: jama, mild_even (big thanks for doing so much so fast!)
Encoding:
jama (thanks to Mandarinka and tyroz for advice)
Special thanks to Daemon404 for providing the encode of Sp02.

In case you didn’t know, Yabai and Mazui were pretty much the same group in the beginning (Mazui = just the fast staff)(Hint: similar group names), so it goes without saying that we use Mazui scripts, which are–by the way–pretty high standard (and we polished them up even more!). We also decided to go with official names, so it’s Holo (instead of Horo), Kraft Lawrence (Craft), Dian Rubens (Dean), Fermi Amati (Amarty) and Eve Boland (Abe).

 

We even have fancy stuff like ordered chapters and bat files that switch between the Credits and Creditless version of the OP/ED as default for you. And all episodes are pure softsubs, we didn’t hardsub a single sign or the karaoke.

Actually we had planned to release the batch torrent with special 3 and 4 included (which nobody else has subbed so far), but we figured why wait with the release if everything else is ready to go? Once we’re done with sp3 and 4 we’ll re-release this batch with those two files included. The specials are audio dramas and their story is about the “Black Wolf’s Cradle“, which is included in Spice & Wolf Vol. 11 (entitled “Side Colors II”, see Wikipedia) and split into two parts.

PS: We have a few questions! Feel free to answer them in the comments section below:

1. Do you prefer single releases (1 release = 1 episode) or batch releases (1 release = whole series in just one batch or 1 release = 1 DVD/BD)?
2. Do you want a page where you can download all of our scripts?
3. Do you find these .bat files to be convenient and that we should keep on including them in our torrents?
4. Do you want updates on the status of the projects? (I could think of updates in the IRC channel or maybe Twitter if we’re not too lazy…)
5. Do you wanna read more articles about fansubbing on this site (see Articles page if you don’t know what I mean)? In case you do, is there something you always wanted to know about fansubbing which I could write about? :>
6. Do you want polls back?
7. Do you care about the Projects section? If yes, want it to stay that way or add/change something? (I know it’s not up2date)
8. If you notice any errors in our releases, feel free to post them in the comments section below. We would be glad to fix anything we missed for the re-release of the batch.
9. Anything else you always wanted to tell/ask us? :P

To LOVE-Ru – 13v2 & bunch of batch torrents

10 November, 2010 (12:42) | To Love Ru | By: jama

The v2 has improved video and audio quality and some minor script fixes.

To LOVE-Ru 13v2 torrent: [Yabai]_To_LOVE-Ru_-_13v2_[DVD][E62F7442].mkv

There’s also batches for the first half of the TLR series, TLR OVA and Seto no Hanayome. Nothing is dropped, don’t worry. Our plans haven’t changed, we’re just cleaning up. It’s also easier for our seedbox to seed a few batches instead of lots of single files.

Third Touhou M-1 Grand Prix

19 September, 2010 (03:41) | Touhou | By: jama

So, this is one of the side projects I may have been talking about (or not). It is dedicated to all existing and yet-to-become Touhou fans. To clarify things: This is the Touhou Grand Prix from 2008 (C75), not the one from 2009 (C77).

The source was majorly fucked up, we tried our best to fix it without going batshit insane.

It also should be mentioned that the Grand Prix and the Touhou Doujin Anime are in fact two different things. While there is an AniDB page on the latter, the site doesn’t seem to be even aware of the existence of the Touhou Grand Prix series it seems.

Fun fact: The script got a whopping 3,000 lines, that’s nearly reaching single cour anime level. So here’s a fair warning: You will be in for a (very) wordy treat. :D

This was a one shot project (as the file name hints — “Third” is more neutral than “Touhou – 03″), we won’t be doing any other Grand Prix movies. There are (ongoing) translation projects for the other Grand Prix movies on various sites, the touhou wiki is a nice source of information if you want to know more.

Here we go, the OVA is getting releases again. Switching encoders only took a year. >_>

It’s the obligatory beach episode every fan service anime has to have nowadays.

You might want to check out my post at AniYoshi. :>

To LOVE-Ru – 12

31 August, 2010 (12:04) | To Love Ru | By: jama

Surprise!

More To LOVE-Ru for all the perverted fans out there. We think you’ve waited long enough now!

This episode revolves all around the school festival. Expect nipples.

With the episode 12 torrent we’ve also included several other files. We’ve fixed/updated the lyrics/karaoke. Just replace the two existing ones with the ones included in this torrent.

There are two different versions of the OP/ED. The default one (the one that loads when you double click any episode) is the creditless/hardsubbed karafx version. There’s also a 2nd version which is creditless and has softsubs.

You also will notice that we’ve included a .rar in this torrent. Basically it includes .bat and xdelta3 files that will help you set the softsubbed version as the default for ordered chapters (if you want). You can also revert it back if you don’t like it. There is also a text file for Unix users which explains how to do these changes manually. If you have any questions, just join our channel on Rizon and ask away.

The CRC of the .rar file is D80EF6B0 by the way.

Unexpected downtime and new host

11 August, 2010 (23:38) | News | By: jama

As you *might* have noticed the website was down the last few days. That is because it got flooded with spam and couldn’t keep up. It’s all good now; we switched the server and this shouldn’t be happening again.

All those dirty spam comments should be deleted too. If you happen to see any more, feel free to mention where you’ve found them down in the comments and I’ll see to it that they’ll get removed fast.

In other news, another release has been waiting in the release queue for quite some time now. It wasn’t released yet cause, well, the website was down. Now that this problem is resolved you can expect it to get released soon.

PS: Some might not be able to display this site for a few days, while others can. Try to suggest them to flush their DNS and try again (or use proxy software like TOR for the time being if they really have to access the site).

PPS: I know we’ve been treating our torrents pretty badly till now (as in, most haven’t been seeded well), but at least for the time being that shouldn’t be the case anymore. Every torrent should have at least 1 seedbox assigned to it now which will guarantee fast downloads.

EVE no Jikan – 06

1 August, 2010 (07:25) | EVE no Jikan | By: jama

So, here it is, the last episode of EVE no Jikan! It’s quite a bit longer than the previous episodes, which is why it took us longer than expected to finish working on it. We actually tried to release this before the movie got out, but I guess we missed the deadline by a few days.

I’d also like to announce that we’re going to work on the movie, which basically combines all 6 episodes and adds new content. And it’s going to be in high definition! :)

At 06:25 you’ll see this piece of paper. (You should watch the episode till 06:25 first to get the context.) In case you were wondering what’s on there, here’s a translation:

Only one more episode to go now~

Look, they’re so happy we’ve finished working on this episode so fast that they’re applauding.

EVE no Jikan – 04

8 July, 2010 (11:22) | EVE no Jikan | By: jama

As our original encoder vanished in April and as the movie BD is going to be released in a few weeks, we decided to switch encoders and cut back on some of the AFX TS, so we can push out the last three episodes fast. Be at ease though, we mainly just didn’t TS that 3D rules (you see it several times in every episode), cause TSing it takes longer than TSing all the other signs together.

So here’s episode 4. You may notice the increase of file size. This is not only due to the new encoder but in general this episode is quite hungry for bitrate. Once you’ve watched it you’ll see why.

So get yourself a comfortable couch, a cup of tea and enjoy watching this episode.
