lol, the R1 industry is in such shambles that an announcement of any license is enough to make dub fanboys go nuts.

Personally, I couldn't care less if the R1 industry up and died tomorrow!

I was more referring to the general style of plot advancement that happens in the marimite series. I'm not dissing the series, I've watched all of it and it wasn't painful.. it's just the most innocuous plot ever. I kept joking that at any random moment everything would just spontaneously blow up to end the show.

True enough.
Hell, we're probably the only two people on this site that care about Marimite.

The R1 industry isn't worth contributing to. Shitty dubs, shitty subs, shitty slow releases, and shitty video quality! Sign me up, holy shit!

Did you just roll in off of 4chan? You sound exactly like the nimrods over there.

Shitty dubs,

Dubs as a whole are far better than what they once were. Not that you would know that.

QUOTE(Moogy @ Mar 6 2008, 02:46 PM) *
shitty subs,

You know enough Japanese to back this up 100% right? Don't go parroting 4chan about one changed line in Gurren-Lagann's subs as an excuse to write the whole thing off as a "shitty sub."
And boo-hoo, you don't get your uber-kawaii (and all together useless) karaoke subs either.

QUOTE(Moogy @ Mar 6 2008, 02:46 PM) *
shitty slow releases,

I wonder why going through a legal process is a hell of a lot slower than grabbing a raw of Share and tossing it up on a tracker site.

QUOTE(Moogy @ Mar 6 2008, 02:46 PM) *
and shitty video quality!

Upscales and artifacted video encodes are so much better. Even the best x264 encodes still don't look as good as video straight off the DVD.

I hate 4chan and never post there.

Dubs are not better, and will never be better. R1 companies don't give a shit, and just hire random dudes off the street with no acting experience. And then they pay them abysmal fees, assuring that their "acting" will be even worse than it could be. Seriously, just listen to a dub and then the original Japanese. The dub will sound like random doods reading a script, whereas the original track will actually sound like acting!

R1 subs are generally pretty accurate, but they over-Americanize everything for no reason. Karaoke subs actually are not useless. I've picked up a fair amount of kanji from watching them! Not my fault if you can't! I also like singing along if the song is really good (like H2O's OP, oh god).

It could be much faster. There's nothing stopping people from airing anime with English subs simultaneously with the Japanese broadcast, but nobody cares enough to do so.

A well-done (studio/station) upscale has far better video quality than an SD DVD can ever aspire to have. Real HD shows look even better. TV rips nowadays look absolutely fine (unless the raw is shit), and there should be no horrible artifacts with modern encoding (i.e., h.264). R1 DVDs also objectively have worse video quality than R2 DVDs, because they drop the bitrate by quite a bit in order to fit a shitload of episodes on a disc.

Tell that to Godannar. And GGG. And Death Note. And Black Lagoon. And chunks of Eureka 7. And practically every Miyazaki movie ever. I can keep going here.
Plus, bad Japanese voice acting exists, if you can get it through your head.

Not everyone is weeaboo as you are. Localization exists for a reason. Of course even if they do leave stuff in, people will bitch at them.

The Japanese copyright holders are the ones holding that back. Like they would want it airing side-by-side.
The R1 release of Mobile Suit Gundam got dicked around with because the Japanese companies didn't want reverse importing to happen.

Marginally. My raws for Gurren-Lagann clock in at 400 to 750 megs, and look rather good. Now how many fansub groups release files that extravagantly large? The largest I have are 350mb, and I still see a bit of artifacting from the re-encoding of the source raws. Not nearly as bad as the DivX days, bit there's traces.

And, don't DVD bitrates cap out at a certain rate? My Ayashi no Ceres DVDs look fine for having 6 episodes on each disc, so it can't be *that* big of a difference.

Anyone know if the Shadow Skill TV series is any good? It's 40% off rightstuf right now for the whole thinpak so it's like $30. A good price I think if the show's any good.

You are a fucking moron, beyond all belief. Holy fucking shit, go learn about encoding before you even attempt to spout off this garbage. PS: GL sucks

Anyway.

Alien Nine is one of my favorite manga. It is quite excellent. Hitoshi Tomizawa's monster designs are simply unparalleled. The OVA adaptation only covers the first volume, either due to lack of funding or just because they wanted to mess with people. I recommend watching the OVA first and then reading the manga. And then Emulators, the sequel.

I also recommend Milk Closet, another manga by Hitoshi Tomizawa. It's perhaps the most dream-like work ever created. The ending is totally epic.

and i actually own the alien nine manga and ova btns.gif v.gif
