Lime Colored War Tales OVA Episode I - The Pantsu Menace

As promised, here is the first part of the two-episode OVA, Lime-iro Senkitan - Nankoku Yume Roman. After the fierce battle at the end of the TV series, the battered Amanohara is desperately in need of repairs... oh, ya know what, screw it. Festivals, yukata, swimsuits, and other silliness are what this episode is about. There's some effort by Shintarou to keep things serious and create some amount of story, but he's helpless in the face of marriage fantasies and nopan action. Oh, and there's also some crossover with characters from Lime-Iro Ryuukitan X Cross to set up the sequel.

The format of this release is going to be a little different. Rather than wmv raws, this is a new encode from R2JDVD .iso by Kaishakunin. So there's a bit of an upgrade to h264, 700x476 (anamorphic 4:3), and 2.0 AC3 audio. Translations are from Static-Subs, as they were the only group to sub the OVA. You'll have your choice of two subtitle tracks:

Track 1: Static-Subs styling, color-coded by speaker.
Track 2: ANBU-AonE color scheme, same as what I used in the TV series. The only difference is that there's no onscreen/offscreen style changes -- I won't take the time to do those unless the original subs had them.

Obviously there's no censorship differences or new scenes this time, since Static's releases were also DVD-rips. So this is mainly an upgrade from hardsubbed XviD/avi to softsubbed h264/mkv. And there are some subtitle improvements, though the originals weren't bad.

TV Series & OVA Batch (Nyaa)OVA Batch (BakaBT)


  1. Thanks for the release :)

  2. Huh... there seems to be more audio AFTER the episode ends, but with a blank screen. Mine has 39 minutes and 52 seconds.

  3. Arigatou so far - do you have plans for Lime-iro Ryuukitan X Cross as well? I know that all groups stalled after the first episode, but it would be really good to see someone doing this.
    The whole show (S1) was way better than expected.
    PS: Is it worthwile to wait for the second ep of the OVA, or is this wayy in the future?
