  2. Solaristics says:

    Thanks! What happened with the old one? I downloaded it already, but I’ll download this one just to make sure I get the correct copy.

  3. Marina says:

    Always fast. Always awesome. Thanks as usual! ^^

  4. dudestar says:

    is it just me or all of the shows you are doing that are licensed by crunchyroll are just re-encoded CR raws too??? and that you won’t even need to retime them because you are jst re-encoding them to 10bit???

    • johnny_dickpants says:

      Even if we were doing that, CR’s timing is dogshit and would require fixing.

    • Xythar says:

      No, none of them are so far. We’ll switch to using CR as a video source for any shows where it turns out that they provide better video quality than using TV raws.

      We completely redo the timing for all our shows as CR’s timing sucks.

      • dsasddf says:

        i would use CR for jinrui. just tell your encoder to spend some time fixing the cross conversion


        • johnny_dickpants says:

          Apparently that comparison is BS.

          <&Xythar> it’s CR with blah blah filtering vs upscaled HDTV
          <&Xythar> in other words two completely made up screenshots

          • dsasddf says:

            yes, it is cr’s 1080p with filtering because filtering is necessary to fix the terrible cross conversion and other faults. the other screenshot is commie’s upscaled to 1080p. commie’s looks significantly worse. i fail to see how the comparison is bullshit.

            • johnny_dickpants says:

              &torchlight] well
              &torchlight] calling them completely made-up is stretching things a bit
              &torchlight] not really a legit comparison since they should both be 720p rather than upscaled to 1080p

              • dsasddf says:

                then just resize both screens to 720p. 1080p upscaled comparisons are more legit anyway, as that’s how people should be watching shows.

                • RHExcelion says:

                  I’ll be using a filtered encode (of the TV broadcast, not CR) from next week on, but not for the reasons you described.

                  tvk doesn’t have a logo.

                • herkz says:

                  I sure as hell don’t.

  5. 3 copies released? It’d be cool if you version releases (v2, v3 etc)… (makes things far less confusing)

    • airco says:

      Where’s the fun in that?

    • Jukey says:

      3? There were like 6 on irc before we were like “fuck it, let’s let someone actually go through the whole thing before we release another version”

  6. Tutturu says:

    Are you guys gonna sub Tanken Driland?

  7. anony says:

    >expecting grim real robot anime

    >got high school girls goes kyaa kyaa instead

    what is this I don’t even-

    • AMg says:

      It’s more like Sky Girls but compressed first 6 episodes into 1, minus the swimming suit like monoslit replace with skintight flesh-coloured plugsuit.

    • Zombehs says:

      Yui’s backstory and establishing some of the world’s setting.

      Don’t worry. You’ll get all your Despair and more, Alternative style, in episode 2.

      • AMg says:

        Just the pacing of the 1st episode a bit frantic. The scene where the aircraft/Surface Fighter crashed and killed the pilot in the training ground doesn’t connect with the main story. Who did died and what the significant impact to the main character(s)? It might have for those who had played/read the manga but not to the newcomer of the franchise.
        Better they start with some brief history of BETA/human conflict and throw the girls into the fight but spend the rest of the episode on Yui’s flashback of her training and such.
        But, it’s just me.

        • Zombehs says:

          If you’re talking about when the laser class shot down the two TSF, there’s no meaning other than to show how screwed everybody is.

          • AMg says:

            I mean the scene before the BETA invasion on Japan. I think it was a plane that crash landed on the training ground during snow fall and soon after that of one cadet quit. Sure, the death might affect other minor characters but main question is who did die.

            Oh, well. Let’s hope it’s some random event that reminds them it’s not all fun and games when training to be a Tactical Surface Fighter pilot. Death looms on the horizon once they official allow to go into the battlefield.

          • Jukey says:

            Nah, before that when the guy was like “if you can’t even handle this, you may as well go home”

    • airco says:

      >Muv Luv

    • herkz says:

      Did you watch the trailers?

  8. random passing fag says:

    smells like a little show named: GUNBUSTER.

    • Sporked says:

      Several homages to Gunbuster in the VNs in the form of soundtracks and some of the mecha design.

      Also, best anime ever. I don’t need to see the rest of this season to know that :3

  9. Someone says:

    Hyouka is still on right? You guys are probably just busy with the new season… I don’t know how much of the teams overlap.

    • johnny_dickpants says:

      TL was out drinking or something yesterday and was sick earlier, he TLed the episode a few hours ago. Editor went to sleep a bit before TL started.

      You can see where this is going.

  10. limabean says:

    Saw episodes 1 and 2 at Anime Expo, 2nd one was especially fun…

  11. Ajox says:

    Hi, I was wondering why you didn’t leave as Eishi, and translated in to pilot, in the Muv luv universe a TSF pilot is called eishi, it’s kinda a elite pilot, so just calling pilot takes all meaning.

    • RebeccaMiyamoto says:

      Most likely because Because “Eishi” has an official English term, which is “Surface Pilot”. Since Surface Pilot is a bit of a mouthful, simply using Pilot reduces the amount of repetition, makes the script easier to read, and is a perfectly appropriate term.

      Your question is like asking why they didn’t leave “TSF” as “Senjutsuki”.

    • herkz says:

      Why the fuck would we not translate an easily translatable word?

      • Jukey says:


        I’m calling Ixrec >:(

      • Ajox says:

        If you played the games you would understand, instead of always saying Tactical surface pilot, eishi is more simple, and everyone who is familiar with universe prefers them, just saying why not use an already established term of the series.

        • herkz says:

          >If you played the games

          I have.

          >instead of always saying Tactical surface pilot, eishi is more simple,

          Probably why we went with pilots.

          >and everyone who is familiar with universe prefers them,

          No, I think eishi is retarded.

          >just saying why not use an already established term of the series.

          There aren’t any. Well, there are some official translations of terms, but the fan translation of Muv-luv is shit and we’re going to ignore it as much as we please.

    • Kyhz says:

      TL note: Eishi means pilot.

    • CODE-A says:

      even if you’re an elite pilot, a pilot would still be a pilot. I don’t see any reason why it shouldn’t be translated.
