Starry Sky – 07-08

June 18th, 2011 No comments

The raw packs that I found on Share are still not complete, but after a little hackery (force-converted the packs and extracted parts of some episodes), I was presented with some very meh-quality 480p TV-Web mixed raws.  I’ve pretty much given up on finding the HQ raws that I used for 1-6, so the video quality for next few episodes will not be as high as before (episode 7 in particular, due to it being aired in 720i because of earthquake warnings).  I’m still using TV raws, but they’re a little blurry and have some compression artifacts in them.  If I ever do find better quality raws for these next few episodes, I’ll release some v2s.

However, I do have high quality transport streams for 13-17 (thanks BlackHakuchou!) and a pre-encoded raw for 18, so hopefully 13+ will be in the highest quality possible.

Suzy’s Zoo-wise, I still have not been able to find any raws at all for episode 11, so I hope that it’ll show up eventually, and I hope that 12+ won’t have this same problem.

News/Update

May 11th, 2011 2 comments

Just thought I should give everyone a sort of update on all of our shows:

1. Suzy’s Zoo – Everything is up-to-date with this show, so there isn’t much to report here, except that DVD Volume 1 has been posted on Amazon.jp.  We probably won’t do the DVDs (unless they have any bonus material), since the DVDs are only SD, but there’s something interesting to note here.  The page says that Volume 1 will include Episodes 1-13 (which guarantees us that there will be at least 13 episodes), but I’ve been wondering… Why number it “Volume 1” if there are no other volumes planned?  This leads me to believe that there will be at least one more volume, which will probably correspond to Episodes 14-26.  So, I wouldn’t be surprised if there were at least 26 episodes total. 🙂

2. Starry Sky – As I stated in the previous post, there are no HD raws for Episode 7+.  I did come across a pack of raws for 1-12, totalling ~4GB (so around 315MB/ep), but that has been stalled at like 90% for a few days now.  If it includes HD raws, then I’ll work on 7-13 ASAP.  If not, we’ll play the waiting game a bit longer.  I probably won’t be doing DVDs simply because I have not seen any DVDISOs posted anywhere yet.

3. Touch – dropped

4. Project #4 – Nothing to see here yet~

 

Comments and feedback will always be welcome 🙂

Starry Sky – 04

March 19th, 2011 No comments

Gave up on waiting for my usual HD raw, and used a different one instead (still looks way better than the webstreams, of course).
Sadly, there are no HD raws for episodes 5-7 at all, so all we can do is hope that they’ll show up eventually.

The only TV raw I have for 04 is a horrible 1080p upscaled raw that has lots of jagged lines and is overly bright (Studio DEEN seems to be doing this to all of their shows this season).  I’ll wait a bit and see if the usual better-quality raw comes out.
Also, could someone add us to AniDB and MAL?

Starry Sky – 01-02

Our second project.  This was originally broadcast online on Animate TV (horrible webstream quality), but is currently also airing on two TV stations in Japan (Sun TV and Tokyo MX).
These encodes are based off of pre-encoded Tokyo MX raws (sadly, there are no transport streams available).  I debated about doing 720p, but it looks like a bad upscale, so I’ll just stick with 576p and 480p.
