Partly inspired by EcchiOujisama's work on revamping DUAL! I was able to get a hold of R2J DVD RAWS for both TV series which are decent upgrades over the transfers used for the US release which I then muxed with the R1 English dub+subs. You can grab them on Nyaa (ID# 1025135 & 1025138). Unless a miracle occurs and BD remasters for each series are announced, this is probably as good as things are going to get.

Universe was something of a hackjob, for example they cut out the eye-catch just in episode 4 for some reason in the R1 release.
Also remember this? This tense and exciting sequence of the Yagami being tailed by the Jurian Royal Space fleet in episode 25?
No, you don't?
OF COURSE NOT, BECAUSE THEY REMOVED IT FROM THE R1 DVDs!!!1
:damn: :orks:  :orks: :son:
So I had to manually cut and edit the audio track to synch and restore the dub/subs with the original video.


With respect to Tokyo, yes the video is an upscale. But that's how the original RAWs were presented. If I had access to source files, I might be able to do better. I also went ahead and borrowed fansubs from Tenchiforums.com and retimed them to the DVD RAW of the Omake episode with some minor translation fixes (apparently the source before was a Laser Disc?). The results are a monumental increase in quality. See comparison here.

Anyway, now it's time for a nice relaxing break.

P.S. Amagasaki rules, Yugi/Sakuya was a better interloping girl than Yuzuha or Haruna, and Universe Kiyone > Noike

Thanks.

Any chance of Pretty Sammy being remastered?  More the 3 episode OAV, rather than 26 episode Magical Project S.

That's RealVideo resolution. And we liked it!

If you or anyone else can dig up some source files to work with, I'm game.

Odd, I had assumed that they subtitled that using the 10th anniversary box set, cause at least one forum member has a copy. Maybe they just did a shitty job encoding it.

I have the R2 copy of the Sammy OVAs. If you're able to rip the disc and encode it, I should be able to make you a copy or even send you my original, provided you do not mind shipping it back after. BTW asiandvdclub has R2 ISOs of Universe & Tokyo.

:iron: If you could provide an ISO copy/VOB files on MEGA/torrent or something,
I'll be more than happy to transparently encode it and retime/mux subs and the dub in for a release.

BTW asiandvdclub has R2 ISOs of Universe & Tokyo.
Not a member on ADC (wanted to be for a long time though), but if I could get those R2 ISOs I'll (re)do both TV series.


:sus: :fuck: :aaa:
I-is that an R1 or R2 DVD of Photon?
I've had either getting the R2J or Discotek re-release of it on my project wish-list for awhile.

Also I see you have the Tenchi Muyo! Radio Jukebox CD set among what looks like others... :pcgamer:
I was going to wait a bit longer to make this as a separate thread, but I and another user on BakaBT have been
working on a Complete Tenchi Franchise Music Collection  for a while (I started in earnest about 7 months ago).
To make a long story short, we're currently up to about ~115/146 CDs in total completed.

When I get some free time, I'd try to convert it to an ISO, split it into a 500mb archive and up it to Mega, but it'll take a long time til I've got it uploaded because my upload speed is pure shit. I hate my ISP. It's simply much easier for me to mail you the disc.

BTW asiandvdclub has R2 ISOs of Universe & Tokyo.

EcchiOujisama or DrSoviet may have the rips, in which one of them could upload the ISOs to Mega, for you. Which would save me a lot of headache.

I've had either getting the R2J or Discotek re-release of it on my project wish-list for awhile.

I wish that was the R2, but that's the R1 release. It's not a bad release, but even the recoded R2 discs look better. So hopefully Discotek treats Photon better than Funimation does with all of their 'license rescues'.

Also I see you have the Tenchi Muyo! Radio Jukebox CD set among what looks like others... :pcgamer:

I can look, but I'm not even sure what I do and do not have, as a large chunk of that came from a fellow collector, who sent me most of his collection before he passed away. :swave:
BTW I believe Jibril has a large chunk of the CDs too. So you may wanna touch base with her too.

Sorry for the late reply. Yeah, I don't mind the wait at all. :worship:
You could also just torrent the ISOs or IFO folder(s) and I'll let you know when I've got'em.
I just get nervous in the chance that they'd get lost in the mail, either sending or on return.

EcchiOujisama or DrSoviet may have the rips, in which one of them could upload the ISOs to Mega, for you. Which would save me a lot of headache.
I'll ask them.

Sorry to hear that. If you can post a pic(s) of what CDs you have, I can ID them for you and tell if we're missing any of them.

I can get you the R2 DVD ISOs if you want, cuz I'm sorry I don't like versions that you did.

I'm working on the Tenchi Canon Series mainly.

That would be excellent.
