To Heart ~Remember my Memories~ - 01
Just so I didn't forget about this show, here's To Heart ~Remember my Memories~ 01. Before To Heart 2 and its unending run of sequels, there was this 2004 sequel to the original 1999 series. And I have to say, the cel art in the old version looked a lot better than this modern rendition. The extreme popularity of robot maid Multi is also in play, as To Heart ~RmM~ features her return and continuing adventures. But if you like this set of characters, this is a decent little show, with more of an ongoing plot than the original had.

Is it better quality than the TV-rips? Honestly, I'm not really sure, given that I'm working with re-encodes of pre-encoded raws here. But at the very least, you get:
* Softsubs instead of hardsubs.
* Some TL and editing fixes. The originals were pretty good, though.
* Less intrusive insert karaoke. Here's some samples:
* On the minus side, you get slightly worse typesetting, as my TS skills are not as good as the average fansub group TSer. I also didn't include things like staff credits and some irrelevant signs. But I tried to imitate the originals where possible.
