Christmas Presents 2020

Tokyo Godfathers
1080p | 720p

The quintessential Christmas anime. Earlier this year, this movie got a US BD release based on a “4K Remaster.” I don’t know about the 4K part since it was just a regular BD, but the video sure looks way better than the old BD. They actually stabilized the scan, so I didn’t have to motion track every sign this time, which is nice. It’s possible there’s some future Japanese (or other country) release based on this remaster that looks better than the US BD, but it’d have to look a lot better for me to v2 this since the video quality of the US BD is so good. As for the subs, the US BD release touched up the official subs a bit, so I applied most of those changes. I had to re-do the timing and typesetting for the most part anyway so that’s also better. The disc also includes a brand new English dub that seems decent. Lastly, I muxed in the Spanish subs that were on the disc because why not? They appear to be for the Japanese audio, not the dub, although that’s probably what you would naturally assume.

Ghost in the Shell Arise Batch
1080p | 720p

I was gonna work on this like 4 or 5 years ago and finally got around to finishing it, mostly because the Italian BDs got uploaded a few months ago. Here’s a list of changes.

-New encode from the Italian BDs, which look slightly better than the Japanese BDs.
-Every ED is now translated as two were originally skipped for some reason.
-The first two movies now have QC as I didn’t originally QC them before release. Because of this, they have the most changes.
-The dub is now included and the sign translations match the dub.
-The movies have chapters since they’re clearly split up into an intro/OP/movie/ED/preview structure.
-Styling and terminology is made consistent throughout.

Our existing releases of what is essentially the fifth movie (Alternative Architecture: Pyrophoric Cult) and the sixth movie (The New Movie) were already done to similar QC standards, so there’s no reason to v2 any of them (and they should still be seeded decently well). Although for whatever reason, Funi never dubbed Pyrophoric Cult, so obviously it’s impossible to upload a dubbed release. Also, you may notice the fourth movie appears to be set at Christmas!

Nisekoi 2 BD Batch


Feeling cute. Might do (S2) OVAs (later) sometime in the near future™

Special thanks to Zastin for writing the VapourSynth Script and Catullus for TLing the songs.

If you catch any mistakes feel free to yell at me in the commie discord or pm me on reddit @ /u/Tehshower
Also I’m still looking for an editor who will sub the hamefura bds with me and probably/optionally a typesetter because I suck at typesetting

Stay safe out there.
