Unfortunately, the video quality in the latter half is rather bad, but it's the fault of the source material rather than encode. I couldn't get to the bottom of this.

Thanks to a suggestion, we'll be uploading our releases not only to nyaa.si, but also to anidex. We'll see how this plays out.

First of all, we warmly welcome BlackRose108 in our team who will be keeping an eye on our translator's English grammar and vocabulary. Thank you for your work! (It can be visible in today's release already :)

Now about the episode itself - as usual, it can be found on the releases page.

While everyone awaits the Monday release, we found some time to show our website the love it needed. We tried to make it more fun by:

  • adding a calming blue background
  • removing other backgrounds and borders altogether
  • improving button appearance
  • making the top more lightweight

(If the site looks glitched, please use Ctrl+F5 to reload it.)

The comment system didn't go untouched as well. We decided to replace Disqus with isso for the following reasons:

  • it looks better
  • it doesn't track our visitors

We've also introduced a guest book :)

Like promised, this time the release is a little early. Please check out the releases page.

As a reminder, I'll be offline the entire next week. Releases should resume from Monday 2017-08-21. Thank you for your patience :)

This week it's a double release! Please check out the releases page.

Since I'll be offline the entire next week, I'll try to get the next episode out this Friday.

Also I'm not sure if it is a creators' slip-up, but in episode 9 Ayuhara-san mistakes Ozawa-san for Kudou-san and Ozawa-san doesn't try to correct that. Please don't be confused.

A little bonus :)

Episode 8 of Attack no. 1 is out. Please check out the releases page.

Fun fact: since episode 5 onwards, we keep the audio transcription of each episode (as heard by the translator) within the .ass file. It should make it easier for another group to improve our translation/video/etc., should there appear one.

Episode 1 of Attack no. 1 got updated. Please check out the releases page.

Changes:

  • Updated source to 720p BD rip (thanks, metalotaku)

    We've started using high quality RAWs grabbed from nyaa.se while it was still alive. We didn't reencode anything for a few reasons:

    1. We don't have any experienced encoder.
    2. We didn't want to decrease the audio/video quality.
    3. Our previous source seems to be badly reencoded video from the current release.

    A single episode weighs about 600 MB which in our opinion is acceptable.

  • Replaced font (thanks, rpgmaniac)

    We decided to fix the issues with the font rpgmaniac has pointed out, and this time we proceeded much more carefully with our choices.

    After many trials and errors, we arrived at bold Gotham Rounded Medium, stretched horizontally to 94% with the size of 43 libass units. We changed the font color as well, but have decided against making it completely white and kept it slightly yellow to match the tint of the video (extra points for providing the retro feel).

    Hopefully it won't be an eyesore for the modern watchers like the previous release. We're quite satisfied with the end results :)

  • Fixed Ikizaki → Ikezaki
  • Changed wording here and there

The group is founded. We hope to provide you with high quality subs :3

We'll be doing subs for Attack no. 1. We're aware the show's already being subbed by Live-Evil, but there hasn't been any progress for 2 years.
