Lovedol ~ Lovely Idol Batch

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.)

  1. Thanks for taking the time to redo this cute show.
    By the way, if 30fps is not the correct rate, what is it?
    I thought DVDs were usually 30fps...

    1. Most likely 24 fps, or possibly a mix of 24 and 30 fps. You're right that DVDs store content at 30 fps, but since a lot of anime get made in 24 fps, they get 1 duplicate frame added for every set of 4 frames. DVD players are able to detect this and convert back to the proper framerate, and proper rips are supposed to remove the duplicate frames or use variable framerate encoding if mixed content is present. Some true 30 fps anime exists, but many times, rippers will just see "oh, DVD's at 30 fps, that's what I'll do for the rip."
