Mizuiro Jidai 05 - Men are key

In this Very Special Episode of Mizuiro Jidai, Yuuko undergoes a change and begins to experience the blessing and the curse of every woman's life. But mostly curse, I guess. At least Yuuko and her friends didn't try to weaponize the topic to unnerve and embarrass the boys, like some girls at my high school did.

Mizuiro Jidai 01-04 - Re-release

Since some have been asking about it here and elsewhere, I decided I'd better do something with Mizuiro Jidai. This is a re-release of eps 1-4 with new h.264 encodes by KiteSeekers, rather than the old DivX raws I used before. I wanted to release ep 5 as well, but I ran into some encoding issues that'll have to be sorted out first. You may notice some oddities in the names of the files and the folder; if you have the KiteSeekers 11-47 batch, these files will drop right into the same folder, and appear at the top of the list, instead of having [KiteSeekers] 11, 12 ... 46, 47 followed by [ReDone] 01, 02 ... 09, 10.

As with KiteSeekers' releases of Mizuiro Jidai and other projects by them, these files contain hardsubbed karaoke and credits. However, in the folder you will also find OP/ED videos (made from the DivX raws) with softsubbed karaoke. I will also do a softsubbed kara video for ED2, even though I won't be releasing the later episodes.

Memories Off 2nd - 10-bit batch

This is a 10-bit version of Memories Off 2nd. I'd originally held off on releasing this version because my old desktop couldn't play 10-bit without resorting to VLC, and I have a personal rule against releasing files I can't comfortably play -- a rule which also preclude(s/d) overly-high resolutions and lag-inducing typesetting/karaoke. But over the course of the project, I migrated things to a new PC that is able to handle 10-bit and 720p+, so I figured there was no real reason not to put these encodes to use.

I will also be moving on to Memories Off 3.5, and I have 8-bit and 10-bit versions of those episodes as well. Let me know if you want both 8-bit and 10-bit, or just one or the other. I can also do an 8-bit batch for Memories Off 2nd, if there is demand.

Saint October 19 - Hey, Ocean!

As promised in the preview in ep 18, this is Saint October's fabulous swimsuit issue. Luckily, our Goth Loli Detectives don't let minor aviation mishaps get in the way of their fun. There's also some triangular romance in the air, but it's put on hold when an uninvited guest crashes the beach party.

Saint October 18 - The Land of Equestria

Saint October really ratchets up its aggressive absurdity in this episode, and for my part, it's time to blitz this series and get it done, as I've taken far too long with it.

Saint October 17 - Helicopter Parents Gone Wild

Time to get this project unstalled as well, with the eventful and plot-relevant Saint October 17. Ryouhei finally makes his move on Kotono, but it's not the kind of move that Joshua and Natsuki are fearing.

Memories Off 2nd 03 - Love the one you're with?

And at last, we finally have the last episode of Memories Off 2nd, where numerous rainy scenes and emo moments manage to reach a conclusion. From some of the montages that get shown, I get the feeling that a 12-episode anime might've provided a better adaptation of the game, but we take what we can get. I do have the materials to do a 10-bit version of this OVA if there's interest. Let me know if you notice any errors in the current releases.


I don't know why I often choose December as a month to finish one anime every day, as there's always tons of stuff going on with family and friends, and it's not cool to let the fansubbing suffer after just getting back from the convention hiatus. I've also had some PC issues here and there -- I got the feeling that my old desktop PC was having overheating/fan issues, so I decided it was finally time to migrate things over to the new PC. And after that, I had a little scare when supposedly-benign temperature monitoring program SpeedFan made the hard drive with almost all my raws temporarily disappear and not be recognized for awhile. Fortunately, it spontaneously re-activated, and none of my scripts were at risk. But I've gone through and backed up a good portion of that material so that a real failure won't completely devastate me.
