Yes, it’s Chieri again. This face is just too :3
If it’s any indication how flexible (read: nonexistent) our work schedule is, translation was five hours behind schedule this week and we still release normal time. Also, some very very important Chitose Get You! information is here.
For anyone who missed it, the whole “Center Nova” terminology has been corrected as of this episode (I noticed the mistake after episode 5, but they never mentioned it again until now).
Oh yeah, we’re planning to do 10-bit 1080p and 8-bit 720p for the Blu-rays. Normally it would be pointless to do an XviD for a Blu-ray release, but since the directors cut does have some extra scenes, it would only be fair, so I’ll ask Kage to do an XviD as usual. I’ll probably retime the episode script and translate the new scenes over the 4th of July.
Sanka tomorrow. Hopefully.
Also, puddi has a message concerning Chitose:
lunr, Imako and I have been hard at work getting a script for Chitose Get You! done. The only problem, however, is that we don’t have a good raw, nor do we have a .ts file to encode from. AT-X has terrible quality due to a low h264 bitrate, which means that it’s not worth capping and encoding from. Unfortunately, the only other airing occurs a good two days after the AT-X airing. This means that, if we’re going to encode our own raw (and have 8-bit/10-bit all that), it’s going to be quite a wait for a 4-minute show. One option we have is ripping the CR raw, and using that, but that only gives us a terrible 8-bit option, and it’s stupid to encode a 10-bit mp4/mkv from a 8-bit mp4/mkv. Besides, if AT-X is any indicator, the show may as well be produced and aired in 480p – i.e., no 720p option. It may be like Tamayura – we don’t know.
This leaves us in a bit of a predicament. We can either rip the CR raw and use that for our release, which will result in a faster release, but only 8-bit and not the best of quality. We could also wait for the KBS airing, which will result in a slower (2 days late) release, but both 8-bit and 10-bit and the best quality available. Should we really worry, considering that it may in fact be produced and aired in 480p? Which would you prefer? Voice off in the comments.
Back to AKB.
