Hi. I didn\'t die (quite) and the group\'s (sort of) alive as well.
Here\'re our plans.
Nyaruko: Release as BDs come out because we\'re lacking like half the transport streams and lolshareraws.
Jormunbitch: I don\'t fucking know. Go ask Anxious-He. I don\'t think they know either. I\'m pretty sure ep 4\'s been ready to release for at least a week... unless they released without me knowing.
Summer plans: lol. (To be more exact, I\'m away for 7 of the 12 weeks of summer. I don\'t think doing a show over the summer is a great idea)(Lol college programs.)
So anyway, we are again, sort of alive at the current time. We\'ll be back full force once fall season starts.
You can still catch me (w0lf) over on IRC, though. #Evetaku seems to be my main channel nowadays, though... lol.
I\'ve been getting very little sleep over the past few weeks due to an ungodly amount of combined music and academic work. Hell, I even deleted almost every game I had to keep me from getting distracted and actually do all my work. I\'ll be straight up and honest. I haven\'t even translated jormunxplosions 4. Much less, 5. I\'m extremely sorry to everyone who\'s out there waiting for our releases. If you want to watch nyaruko and jormunboom 3-4 and 4, respectively, then DL our release later for archiving purposes, I won\'t take any offense. It\'s not fair to everyone out there waiting for us to release.
To clear any misconceptions that may be out there: No. We have not dropped any of our projects, nor do we plan on doing so. It\'s just as the translator, all the work begins with me and since I\'m the one dying, obviously nothing else can get done.
Again, I\'m extremely sorry to anyone waiting for us, but this delay might last until the end of the week.
w0lf is a faggot
Why am I posting this? Cuz I fucking can.

[8:40:50 PM] Arche: Well, we decided on playing a PS3 game. So we\'re in front of your tv, turn on Metal Gear Solid 4, then halfway through the first loading screen you just shut the console off and say \"I think you better run. My dad\'s home.\"

[8:45:58 PM] w0lf: DO IT
[8:45:59 PM] MikiMiki: FUCK YES
[8:46:06 PM] Arche: It was a shotgun tied to a pitchfork
[8:46:10 PM] MikiMiki: LOL
[8:46:11 PM] w0lf: Jesus
[8:46:12 PM] midorinashi: LOL
[8:46:15 PM] Arche: And w0lf\'s dad is a big, muscular black man
[8:46:19 PM | Edited 8:46:21 PM] w0lf: LOLWUT

[8:46:36 PM] MikiMiki: Is he stealing TVs
[8:46:36 PM] w0lf: were you sleep deprived last night by any chance?
[8:46:37 PM] MikiMiki: ?
[8:46:37 PM] midorinashi: i guess that shot gun\'s hard to reload
[8:46:38 PM] jaeyjay: it actually exists O.o

[8:48:38 PM] jaeyjay: the pitchfork actually is useful
[8:48:41 PM] midorinashi: i\'m scared
[8:50:54 PM] Arche: I tripped. The big black dad is charging after me, firing the shotgun rapidly.
Fortunately, just in the nick of time w0lf (Now black as well) and his mom drive up in a Cadillac. w0lf gets out and pulls me up, then says, \"I\'m sorry, my dad is racist against white people. He wants to take you to Dairy Queen.\"
And I turn around to see w0lf\'s dad holding a selection of Blizzards. I happily accept one, and we ride back while singing campfire songs
[8:50:56 PM] Arche: Then I woke up
[8:51:06 PM] midorinashi: HAHAHAHAHA

Holy shit, we released only a week late!
Uh, screencap later. I don\'t have the files and am at school atm.
Anyway a comment on the release, we sort of actually knew what everyone was doing for the most part. Also, Koko she is loco I said OH NO.
Episode: Torrent | Magnet
OP/ED: Torrent | Magnet
Yes. Ironic that I should say that.
But anyway, many of us (by which i mean all of us) have finals and for the younger ones, AP exams coming up in the next few weeks. Because of finals, it also means a lot of assignments are being given out in the last few weeks before the test itself. For the college students within our group, their final is already in progress.
Point being, Haiyore will probably be delayed starting ep 4. Ep3 is ready to release, except both our typesetters are too busy to actually work on them, so we\'re at a dead stall on that account.
Jormungand will... The encoders will cause more delays than myself T\(--)_/T (jkjk, I love you two, soup & tormaid)
Uh, if we can\'t get it typeset soon, I might just do it myself.
So yeah. Delays incoming due to finals. Small teams are prone to this problem. (We only have five members)
There were so many good Koko reaction faces in this episode, it was hard to choose just one…
My extensive effort attempting to denoise this was rendered moot when we acquired much better looking caps. This comes at the cost of being even less compressible, so we unanimously decided ordered chapters were called for. Continue reading below for further details about the encodes.
Delay was partially due to lack of experience with ordered chapters… ^^;

OP/ED: Torrent [Magnet]
My original plan was was to mostly denoise this and apply a light layer of grain over it to hide the splotches left over. Why not completely denoise it? Doing so would erase stupid amounts of detail during dark scenes, even line art (despite stacks of masking lines). There’s just too much grain. While I was able to pull this off to a degree, it still wasn’t ideal without scene-filtering out the dark scenes and leaving them alone. Then comes the issue of compressibility, again. The added grain was less compressible, even when applied very lightly, and only to dark areas of the frame. In the end, since we had to sacrifice something, we chose to use mostly unfiltered encodes and try to strike a balance between compressibility and grain retention. Dark scenes look very good, we sacrificed very little detail and the stronger grain forced higher bitrate allocation, and thus better grain retention. Bright scenes are a toss up. I actually chose to denoise the very brightest areas of the frame, because you can barely even see the grain there and it was just eating bitrate for no reason. If you look at the above screenshot, you can see the state of the grain during normal lighting. No, it doesn’t look spectacular. However, in motion it’s really not so bad. Ultimately, I think this was the best of several not-so-appealing choices presented me.
Haters gonna hate.
Long story on this release. By which I mean I\'m still sitting here at 5:30 in the morning even though I have a soloist recital tomorrow. If anyone\'s in the new york area, feel free to come to West Point\'s Young Artist Concert. I\'m in there.
Anyway, delays, delays, and delays. I know we\'re technically a \"slowsub\" group, but even then we hit some massive brick walls eg college people having exams. (Those of us that are in highschool will have our share of exams soon enough)
Fun note: There\'s a sign that we weren\'t able to finish in time (if that makes sense) which means even though it should be properly motion tracked, shit\'s derping and we don\'t know why. The sign should be moving smoothly but it stutters. I left the sign commented out, but in the .ass itself if anyone\'s curious. The last 15 or so frames for that sign were hand typed by me because everyone else died and I don\'t have the proper motion tracking software (I tried to fix the entire sign... by hand. It didn\'t work out too in the end orz)
Anyway, enough ramblings. Enjoy episode two of Haiyore! Nyaruko-san!

Chicks can totally brofist.
This will be our main project this season and it is a joint with our pals over at Anxious-he. This show is about guns and world peace and… yeah, just watch it…
Props to LeonHo who masterfully ktimed the OP for us.

Encoder Notes: It’s huge! WTF?! Since all you’re going to do in the comments is complain about the filesize I will address that now. This show has a constant layer of moving grain on top of being about people who blow things /other people up non stop at night. Any group who manages filesizes much smaller than this did so by sacrificing substantial amounts of detail and will look like shit, see here. Next week we may switch to using ordered chapters, which would save roughly 200mb per episode.
Why yes, I will remember your love, Nyaruko.
Welcome to episode 1 of our first (Second?) project this season! As explained before, what you see here is Haiyore, which I think was a given considering this was the first show we ever subbed.
Does the fact that we have a clue what we\'re doing now do justice to the series compared to our first releases? I\'ll let you decide that. In the mean time, Nyaruko made my heart explode at least three times this episode. Good luck seeing me live until the end of the season.
w0lf edit: It\'s been way too long since I muxed and released. I COMPLETELY forgot about chapter files. A v2 will be released tomorrow night with the TS scene bleeds, OP kara, and chpaters added/fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience! (Hey, give us a break. We haven\'t released an episode on our own in almost 4 months)
w0lf edit2: Sigh Apparently mkvmerge is broken. It only muxes the first four fonts I assign for some damned reason. Will fix for the v2 release.
edit: v2\'s up.
edit2: xdelta patches fixed.

Because, all the typesetters. (Actually, that\'s only half an episode
So i only stole the release pic this time. Yay! I don\'t even know why I\'m writing a release post. I\'m the only one from Ahodomo working on this \ o / (not to mention, I only TL half an ep. Yay)
So sup. I guess Aho\'s working on three shows this season... Right? Maybe? Hopefully?!
Whatever, I went to AnimeBoston today. It was meh. It\'s a sunday, I had no money($50 for purchases) and i didn\'t know about a-boston until saturday where i coincidentally met a friend in boston visiting colleges. So he was like, \"Yo, man. You should go to AnimeBoston with me.\" and i was like, \"Sure.\" and yeah. I went with no knowledge of anything and no crossplay outfit. Bleh.
Enough ramblings, though.
