Utawarerumono

Type: Series (26 Episodes)
Video: 1280×720 @ crf 15
Audio: FLAC 2.0 – Japanese
AC3 5.1 (640 KBit/s) – English
Subs: R1 Thora OP/ED Modified
720p: Torrent

Notes:
I did this series due to these reasons:

  1. Ordered chapters make ♦Tenshi♦ mad. Annoying compatibility issues ect ect.
  2. Hard-subbing destroys original video IMO
  3. Lack of flac audio makes ♦Tenshi♦ sad

    Whoa, this took me by surprise!
    *Maniacal Laughter* I really feel like doing a picture comparison between ♦Tenshi♦ and THORA, right now (well, it won’t happen unless I got at least one episode done downloading first…)

    I like how the pic in the post is not actually 1600×1200 but really just a simple upscale of a 640×480 one.

    you stole the subs from thora?
    how dare you…

    Agreed I hate that Thora hard-subbed the OPs and EDs.
    Though are you SURE that the 1080 source is interlaced? I’ve watched Thora’s variant, and that in terms of quality and sharpness actually even manages to beat the Fate/stay night Movie. If I remember right, didn’t Aquaplus (the studio that this anime belongs to) remake Uta just to release it as full HD?

    Interlacing is not trivial. It’s either there or it isn’t, it’s not an encoder decision.

    Here are the screenshots taken from the first episode:

    So, video quality-wise, I suspect that THORA applied a slight warpsharp filter to smooth out edges here and there, but other than that, I don’t see any other differences.

    Hmm… Thanks Bloodios. Kinda happy that Tenshi’s is pretty much on par as Thora. Though here’s a feasible request for CG. Would you then consider releasing just the OPs and EDs in 1080 for the poor sods who downloaded 20GB+ worth of Thora’s 1080? Just to be rid of the hard-subbing on those files… But yeah, will lurk and see how this turns out here regardless.

  12. ♦Tenshi♦ writes:

    I tend not to filter my releases unless original video source is supremely bad. I actually prefer slightly rough lines, it give it more of a “drawn” feel to the image but that’s me.
    .
    Anyhow is there a reason why you need NC(OP/ED) 1080s? Are NCs that important?

  13. 5ushi writes:

    Not the NC OPs and EDs. The ones WITH credits. The ones from Thora have hard-subbing karaoke (ie lyrics) stamped on them, alas, why I was asking… In all honesty, I couldn’t care less for the NC variants…

  14. 5ushi writes:

    …hmm… that ain’t my avatar there, and why is it double posting.. Anyways, regarding the OVAs. You girls have the first and second discs? I might be able to help with funding the third if absolutely required (tokyotosho has horrible mp4 encodes the last time I checked)

  15. ♦Tenshi♦ writes:

    Are you trying to remux the non-hardsubbed OPED into thora or something with the ordered chapters? Seems like alot of work but ok…….
    .
    I guess I can queue up a 1080 credit OP/ED and upload it to megaupload or something. Don’t expect it anytime soon though.
    .
    Yes I have disks 1 and 2 for the OVAs.

  16. 5ushi writes:

    Aite. I’ll first have a look down at my ‘sources’ and see whether I can find a high-quality 3rd OVA. Though I ain’t expecting too much considering not even TokyoTosho has the proper blu-ray images… And yes, please do queue up the credited 1080 OP and ED, though whenever you’re free. Don’t wanna hold you up doing more important prioritised work. I’ve got a few fonts on me that might be worth the remux, but as you say, the ordered chapters will be tedious when I get around to it. Though small baby steps at a time I always say.

    As requested, here are the 1080p credited OP/ED files. They aren’t official and don’t come with support of any kind.

    @Tenshi
    I have a new best friend… ^_^
    Thanks a bunch for the 1080 OP and EDs! Though too bad you ain’t doing the 1080 for the entire series; your 1080s are slightly better than Thora’s for the trained eye ~_^
