YPC5 – 2nd Half v2 Extravaganza

Posted in Batches, Releases, Yes Pretty Cure 5 at 3:35 am by zalis116

Just because the series is completely subbed, it doesn’t mean we’re done here. Oh no, not by a long shot. After being busy with and finally recovering from the convention I staff at, it’s time to get underway with more Yes! Pretty Cure 5 releases. The first order of business is some v2s to correct some major and minor errors that were made along the way. Episodes affected are:

27: Adding the alternate plain sub track.
39: Some translation fixes.
45: Correcting a wrong name in one line.
46: Fixing placement errors in the OP karaoke.
48: Retiming one line that started late, plus a few other things you probably won’t notice.

Certain other episodes have some minor errors in the karaoke, but I didn’t think it was worth v2ing almost every single episode.

Patches DDL

To run the patches, unpack the .rar in the same folder where you have the previous PCSS YPC5 releases, then click the .bat file. It should run automatically and create the v2s. Afterwards, you can delete the v1s and all the associated patch files.

Yes! Pretty Cure 5 – OP and ED

Posted in Batches, Releases, Yes Pretty Cure 5 at 6:00 pm by Force Gaia

Who's THAT Pokemon?

Who's THAT Pokemon?

Along with the DVD raws for episodes K.o.R gave us, he also threw in all the OP and ED sequences.
So here they are in all their DVD glory:

Torrent with all four

XDCC packlist for [PreCure]AllStars on #precure@irc.Rizon.net

Opening 1: (Isn’t on the DVDs; if anyone somehow has a clean version of it, please let us know, because otherwise we can’t give you this as it simply doesn’t exist)

Opening 2: DDL

Opening 3: DDL
* note: All OPs are the same song, just with different footage to add newly-introduced characters.

Ending 1: DDL

Ending 2: DDL

On another note, we will be re-releasing 27 with a DVD raw in the near future.
I’m just waiting for Zalis to get back to me about 28 and 29, as 28 has been QC’ed and 29 is still awaiting TL as far as I know, but i think this is because the DVD raws have given him more work to do to them as he’s re-done the OP and ED kara due to changes in the raws, and the audio is a little different.

Go for the six batches on the underside!

Pretty Cure Splash Star Main Cast

They may get an A for saving the world, but their Zettai Ryouiki only ranks a C.

41-49 Batch || 01-49 Complete Batch (BakaBT) || Scripts + Font Archive

So, I’m back from my trip to a family reunion in the Portland, OR area, where I learned at least one important fact: northwestern Oregon loves Papyrus. And as promised before, the last two batches are now available, thanks to Ichigo69 and beeyacht. The first contains only the final arc of the series, featuring the trimphant return of Michiru and Kaoru, their and Pretty Cure’s series of battles with previously defeated minion, and the four’s final confrontations with Gohyaan and Akudaikaan. And the second batch is of course the entire series, aside from the movie.  From the third link, you can get a .rar archive of the scripts for all 49 episodes and the movie. I recommend giving them a read-through, as I included extra information about translation and editing decisions that wasn’t displayed in the actual releases. Additional lulz can also be had, particularly in the final episode’s script.

All in all, it’s been a fun adventure 1-manning the second half of this series and re-releasing the first. I knew from working on Sugar Sugar Rune that subbing Magical Girl anime that aired several years ago wouldn’t bring me fame and acclaim across the fansubbing world. But I figure that even if only ~1300 people DL these releases, it’s still completely worth it to be a hero to those 1300 people and Pretty Cure fandom in general. So hopefully I can continue delivering quality subs for this franchise in the future. But first, I’m going to focus on my re-releasing operation and continue watching through Yes! Pretty Cure 5 before I do any more Pretty Cure subbing work.

I may post some entries in this blog about general anime and fansubbing issues, and I’ll of course be checking back for more comments. Also, if you enjoyed my releases beyond merely “Yes it’s finally subbed!”, feel free to comment on AniDB and MAL. Even though there’s no competing releases to compare with, I still like seeing reviews on subbing quality.

49 – Final Episode: All the lights in the sky are Splash Stars

Posted in Batches, Pretty Cure Splash Star, Releases at 12:03 am by zalis116

Pretty Cure Splash Star Complete Final Episode On January 28th, 2007, episode 49 of Pretty Cure Splash Star aired on Japanese TV. And now, a week short of 3 and a half years later, I’m proud to present it in English and thus complete the subbing of this series.  It’s the final phase of the final battle between Pretty Cure / Michiru&Kaoru and Gohyaan, where they learn the true intentions of their enemy. Can they survive and triumph over impossible odds? Well, given the type of show this is, they probably can. But what of the Kiryuus, who were told that if the power of destruction vanished, they’d vanish with it? You know, this all reminds me of a certain Gainax anime that started airing two months after Splash Star ended…

At any rate, break out the tissue boxes for an ending that surpasses the ends of both prior seasons, imo.  Whenever my motivation to sub this show faltered, I could always watch a few scenes from 49 to renew my determination. The only thing I regret on the subbing front is not doing subs for the extended ED 1 that plays as an insert song. But the only parts you really hear are the lyrics from the TV version, and insert karaoke is considered distracting in many circles.

I will be away from my home and Internet connection for the next 5 days, so you might not see a 41-49 batch until Tuesday. Then again, you might see one before that, so keep an eye on the comments and the usual torrent sites.  Also, there will hopefully be a complete 01-49 batch on bakabt. More thoughts in a later post.

Batch #2: Twin Destinies

Posted in Batches, Pretty Cure Splash Star, Releases at 8:20 pm by zalis116

Well, this was released a couple of days ago, but I realized I hadn’t made an actual post about it. So here it is, batch torrent #2/5, spanning episodes 14-23. These episodes chronicle the rocky beginning and tragic end of Pretty Cure’s friendship with Michiru and Kaoru Kiryuu, as well as their battles with earth-elemental minion Dorodoron.

Yes! Pretty Cure 5 01-24

Posted in Batches, Releases, Yes Pretty Cure 5 at 4:15 am by zalis116

Yes Pretty Cure 5 Nozomi Yumehara

Pretty Cure in 16:9? I don't know about this...

Riddle me this, Pretty Cure fans: How can I have a post labeled “Releases” AND “Off-Topic”? Simple, by linking to a batch torrent of releases that are not my own.  After quickly finding the 8 files I was searching for in the previous post, I’ve compiled a batch torrent containing Arienai’s SD releases of Yes! Pretty Cure 5 01-20, along with 21-24 by Eggplant. Just for everybody out there with an old PC or who simply wants to save a little HDD space.

I have not watched a full ep of YPC5 yet, but I’m hoping that the “Pretty Cure charm” doesn’t get diluted by having 5 leads. Will I ever do any subbing work on it? I don’t know, it depends on how burnt out I feel after finishing Splash Star. Ep 42 is “done,” but I figured it’d be easier to post this batch torrent before going to bed.

Torrent

P.S. I added *for CureCom* to the torrent title so that people searching for that string of characters will come across it. After all, it is for the benefit of the Pretty Cure fan community.

EDIT by Force Gaia: Not off-Topic any more, as we’re actually subbing this now!

Batch #4 – Live fit or die hard.

Posted in Batches, Pretty Cure Splash Star, Releases at 4:47 am by zalis116

I’ll try to come up with an image and other things to say tomorrow, but for now I must sleep. Here’s batch torrent #4, containing the 8 episodes of the Kintolesky arc. The movie is also included in this batch, just to even things out. Since the movie is two episodes long, that makes the batches 13 / 10 / 9  / 10 (8 + 2) / 9.

24-32 Batch – The Pretty Cures of Dark Water

Posted in Batches, Pretty Cure Splash Star, Releases at 4:08 am by zalis116

Pretty Cure Splash Star Ms Shitataare Introduction

Good thing she uses water, because those sleeves are a fire hazard.

24-32 Torrent

The third of five partial batch torrents is now available for  downloading. This set of episodes features the exploits of the often-misnamed Ms. Shitataare. Unlike some of the other minions, she’s as devious as they come and uses all manners of tricks and disguises. She’s not even above betraying her superiors when she feels slighted, as we found out in episode 30. But at least her speech is polite and refined.

Episode 39 is translated, and timing/release will commence tomorrow morning. After that, only episode 40 and the movie (which is effectively 2 episodes) remain before Batch #4 is complete.

P.S. Would anyone be able to post updates of PCSS releases to the precure LJ community? I haven’t been able to actually join it because of an old/inactive email address or something. Plus, it’d feel like shameless self-promotion if I… posted them myself.

01-13 Batch — Dead Leaves and RUMBA RUMBA RUMBA

Pretty Cure Splash Star Karehaan Uzainaa

Oh no, not the bees, not the bees! They're in my eyes ! Aaarghoijf0897f3 ffklj19!,MMDdf

So I was thinking, “Gee, I created this ‘Batches’ category, but I haven’t even used it yet.” To that end, and to make earlier episodes easier to download, I’ve created the first of a planned 5 Pretty Cure Splash Star partial  batch torrents. This first batch will be the largest, and features the exploits of the first two Dark Fall minions, Karehaan and Moerumba. Here’s a rundown of how future batches will play out.

Batch 1: 01-13 [Torrent]

Batch 2: 14-23

Batch 3: 24-32 [Torrent]

Batch 4: 33-40 + The Movie [Torrent]

Batch 5: 41-49

Batch 6: 01-49 (will probably only be on BakaBT, to avoid splitting the small swarm between two torrents)
