Well, I'm finally back and recovered from the most successful Anime NebrasKon yet, though I'm still coughing a bit from the ol' con plague. Fortunately, nobody stole or damaged anything from my viewing rooms, and all my panels went pretty well despite the last-minute procrastinated preparation. Anyway, everybody's least-favorite naughty nymphet Esmeralda is out for revenge and on the prowl in Saint October 16, though she manages to get a little bit... sidetracked. Meanwhile, the Goth Loli Detectives are more concerned with academic troubles than anything else, but they still slip in a little judging on the side.

I think the above line describes how I feel about the typesetting for the many cellphone messages in this episode. But since they are relevant and were translated by Anime-Faith, I couldn't omit them. Blame Aegisub's Color Picker if you see "obvious bars are obvious" colored bars around the text. Anyway, Tomoe has her best friend's boyfriend Ken at her beck and call for every little thing in this episode; one wonders how she survived before she met him. But Ken manages to be complicit in their secret liaisons as well -- is there a School Days-esque development ahead on the horizon?
As is always the case around this time of year, I'm busy with staffing and panel preparations for Anime NebrasKon. If you're going to be there, stop by my viewing rooms and say hi! I'll be screening Memories Off 2nd on Saturday 11-2 at 4:15 AM, so ep 3 WILL be done within the next 2 weeks.

No confrontation with the forces of Reverse this time around, but we do get a glimpse far back into Misaki's past. But even with Kafka out of the picture, Saint October's love for ambiguously-gendered characters still goes on. I must be slipping a bit; I let a couple mistakes like "everyday" and "alright" slip through editing to the final round of QC. But rest assured that everything's fixed to the best of my ability, whatever that ability may be.

By somewhat popular request, here's a batch torrent for Lovedol ~ Lovely Idol. I was thinking about doing a complete v2 batch with the .wmv raws I managed to get from area raw, but... like these AME rips, they're wrongly 30fps. It's a shame, because the bitrate in the .wmvs is a bit better and they're anamorphic, but the wrong framerate pushes them into "not worth it" territory. So again, if anyone has access to the .isos and wants to use my subs for new encodes with the right framerate, you're welcome to them. (Just be prepared for lots of little timing adjustments, I suppose.)
So since the only significant error I've noticed was a minor consistency flub in ep 01 that I bet most people won't see, I've decided to go ahead and do a batch. (Maybe there's some insert karaoke fade errors in ep 09, but I don't remember and don't feel like checking.)

Here's something I've had kicking around for awhile; as promised awhile back, I will be releasing all of the Memories Off OVAs, and this begins the second series. Enjoy the beginnings of a summer love triangle, though I imagine things don't feel so rushed in the original game. Speaking of games, you can also enjoy this episode as a drinking game: take a drink every time Hotaru asks, "Ken-chan, do you like/love me?" Subs are a combination of Anime-Faith's and Anime-Influx's subs, plus the usual edits and changes on my part. Styling matches what I used on the 1st Memories Off OVA.

At long last, here it is, the final episode of Lovely Idol. This was never subbed by WinD back in the day, and is thus an all-new release. KiteSeekers had taken an interest in this unsubbed OVA a long time ago, and they provided the encode, translation, timing, and QC, among other things. I checked the translation and did other general edits, as well as the necessary styling and karaoke to make this fit with my releases of eps 1-12.
Anyway, enjoy some hot springs hijinks -- I'm sure you know what to expect. This just about concludes my work on this series, though if you've seen any errors in previous episodes, let me know so I can v2 them.

Lovely Idol 13 is also just about ready, or at least has been for a while.

If you have AoG's v2 release (not labeled as such, but found here), you can use the patch to instantly obtain my release from it. And hopefully help seed a little, right?
