So literally, after months of working on this quite big project, we can finally release BECK Live Action Movie - with three qualities you can choose for your taste - 480p, 720p and 1080p! X3b Here are the techical details I'm going to copy and paste verbatim from Azazel-dono (who's so awesome for being patient in encoding and uploading these very big files & also buying the limited edition Blu-Ray with DVD extras):

[quote author=Azazel]Due to the super widescreen nature of the film, we have what may seem strange resolutions at first, but these are correct and when black bars are taken into account the files do make up a full 480, 720 and 1080p resolutions.

480p Release
This release comes in 800x340 resolution encoded with h.264, with 5.1 audio in AAC format muxed into a MP4 container.

720p Release
This release comes in 1280x544 resolution encoded with h.264, with 5.1 audio in AAC format muxed into a MP4 container.

1080p Release
This release comes in 1920x816 resolution encoded with h.264, with 5.1 audio in AC3 format muxed into a M2TS container.

The reason behind the M2TS container is to allow a higher quality audio file to be provided and to allow for universal playback on PS3, 360, PC's and Blu-Ray players.

Also to note that given this is a long film, the size of the files are larger than normal releases. This is part of the reason for not including the higher quality AC3 on the lower resolution files to allow everyone a chance to get this fantastic movie.[/quote]

[size=8pt]BECK manga covers[/size]


Forgive me if I will be having a bit of a nostalgia trip - BECK is one of the first mangas I've read during the first years of scanlations in the Internet around early 2000 (interesting read of the history of it all at InsideScanlation). Anyway, I was reading it with titles available at MangaScreener (Monster, One Piece, 20th Century Boys, etc) during the old dial up days and this title has been one of my favorites. I really think the story is unique and I still remember my friends were so LOLwhat about it when they first heard the series since it's supposed to be a music oriented manga... But it's a manga! You can't hear the music being played! XD But if you actually read the manga - you will know that Koyuki has such an awesome voice.

[size=8pt]BECK - Mongolian Chop Squad anime (read the manga or watch the anime why it’s Mongolian Chop Squad yet they are not named in the movie)[/size]


From the first time I heard that there will be a live action version of BECK manga (not anime, but manga), I was excited. To be honest personally, I didn't like the anime compared to the manga (don't get me wrong, I like the anime, just not as par as this movie nor the manga). Most likely because of how the anime portrayed Koyuki's supposedly whoa voice which was meh (to me). Yes yes yes - I already heard from the BECK fansubbing team that they went weh with how the director handled Koyuki's whoa voice. Personally, I think what the director did was the best option and I really (and I mean it seriously) like his decision X)

[size=8pt]Some titles of Tsutsumi Yukihiko which I also recommend[/size]


Speaking of the director, when I found out that Tsutsumi Yukihiko will direct the movie, I'm like - FSCK YEAH! I so respect that director! I love most, if it not all, of his works. I really like how he stays true to the original version (in this case, manga) for most of his works. I mean, the camera angles of the manga panels are also being imitated, etc. If there were any changes, I’ve always liked how he change those parts that he changed. Heh, I love how he made the version of the H2 Jdrama from the Adachi Mitsuru manga very good too (watched the Jdrama thrice, read manga twice XD). His other popular titles would be 20th Century Boys and Trick series (where you can get the first season from our friends at TV-Nihon) which both were advertised in the trailers.

I LOVED how the movie handled extra characters as easter eggs which you will only get it if you read the manga (or watched the anime).
The girl childhood friend of Koyuki was just mentioned as the girl that Ryuusuke was supposed to introduce to Chiba. Maho suddenly has a dream to be a director and the famous director was changed to the director Maho respects.


I believe each has their own reason why he or she will like this film. But probably the main reason why many will like to watch this film is because it has such an awesome cast. I mean wow. They got two fluent English speakers to get the parts of the siblings Ryusuke & Maho - Mizushima Hiro (who grew up in Switzerland, I think) and Kutsuna Shiori (who grew up in Australia, which explains her undeniable accent). Satoh Takeru playing as the wussy Koyuki is just spot on given from his Ryoutarou days as he shouts Henshin! (which he'll soon shout Kenshin!). Kiritani Kenta probably gave me the loudest OMFG! when I first read he will be Chiba - he just so fits the role. Nakamura Aoi is the current Sano in the new Hanazakari no Kimitachi e 2011 Jdrama series, also that we already saw him in an episode of Shinigami no Ballad. Of course, don't forget the guy who made erinbare-nii her husbando, Osamu Mukai whose career skyrocketed with his role as the legendary youkai master & mangaka, Mizuki Shigeru of Gegege no Nyoubou Morning Jdrama. Tokusatsu fans will also like this movie since it has two Kamen Riders as the lead here - Kabuto & Den-O back to back as the lead characters (Heh, reminds me of TimeLesSub’s Mei-chan no Shitsuji how Kabuto & Den-O interacted there). Not to mention, Nogami Koutarou (New Den-O in Chou Den-O movies), Gene Dopant / Long, Kamen Rider G Den-O (From Chou Den-O Trilogy, Episode Yellow), Ozu Tsubasa (MagiYellow), and Ankh (Kamen Rider OOO) have roles in the movie!]=http://www.plurk.com/p/ajjyc1Not to mention, Nogami Koutarou (New Den-O in Chou Den-O movies), Gene Dopant / Long, Kamen Rider G Den-O (From Chou Den-O Trilogy, Episode Yellow), Ozu Tsubasa (MagiYellow), and Ankh (Kamen Rider OOO) have roles in the movie!

Which reminds me, all the main cast except MizuHiro, we have worked in the past or definite plans on working on titles they are appearing or appeared haha (Takeru Satoh, Nakamura Aoi - Shinigami no Ballad; Kiritani Kenta - ROOKIES, Solanin ; Kutsuna Shiori - Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora Live Action Movie ; Mukai Osamu - Paradise Kiss Live Action).

Like our previous release of Detroit Metal City, even the hearing impaired will also enjoy the movie. I really took that in mind as I remember SilentWolfDog-dono of TV-Nihon really appreciated Detroit Metal City, even if the movie is music oriented.

And be sure to check the lyrics translations - especially the rap parts. erinbare-niiue did such a splendid awesome job in editing the rap parts also to rhyme in the translations. (I still remember her ranting all the time to me how she hates raps and Chiba whenever she works on it haha) A lot of special thanks for all the staff that worked on it. Since it's relatively a long movie - there were 9 timers, and 3 translators for this movie - I humbly thank the BECK fansubbing staff for being so awesome.

Here's SacredCultivator-dono's comments after he QC'd the movie (which I should put into spoiler tag)
[quote author=SacredCultivator]Man this is one heck of a movie, despite not liking Music-oriented movies, this one captured me throughout the film.

Shiori Kutsuna does an amazing job at her role, and looks cute as heck, first knew her from Mei-chan no Shitsuji, and she's grown up so much from then and now looks stunning!

Wide range of crazy cast members.

Tendou and Shiori do a great job on their English. At first I was like, no way it can't be them actually speaking it as it sounds just so amazing compared to other Japanese speaking English. Cracked up the first few times because I was so shocked, but they pull it off and it works and is understandable.

The whole not hearing Den-O being able to sing gave me the Sucker Punch vibe of how you couldn't see Baby Doll's dance, although the thing with BECK is, at the very end you get to SEE what he's singing, so that made me go awesome, rather than just having the motion that he's singing but nothing more of what he's singing.

Overall a good movie, I mean it may be extremely long since it clocks in at about 2 and a half hours, but I must say, I wasn't bored at any given moment![/quote]


Sorry for this very lengthy release post. This is just one of the titles that I really REALLY liked to work on from the start. Being it with a music oriented movie, done by one of my favorite directors, with an awesome cast, and based on a manga I grew up with. ;D

When Koyuki sings, is his voice supposed to be on mute? I didn't really get it...

[Omnicat] <Nyaa> We will of course be playing Star Citizen. If you have a game package with alpha access, you can join our subversion efforts right here. See you in the 'verse!
[07-26, 14:54] <johnbingenchen2014> no games no life is it an animation?
[07-26, 14:07] <Abunja> above this chatbox. both 'this' are links, click the 2nd one.
[07-26, 13:52] <FaiT> where isthis playback guide? I would like to read it
[07-26, 13:01] <kamiwong> abc
[07-26, 12:39] <shaddrag> Nyaa chatbox, now offering counselling and life coaching.
[07-26, 12:25] <Senfu> v That's what I call optimistic
[07-26, 12:23] <jerxou> Depressed? Well, look on the bright side! Compared to absolute, hopeless despair, depression is cheerful!
[07-26, 12:15] <Abunja> he has*
[07-26, 12:14] <Abunja> its seems like he has no financial issues, as far as what he just said is concerned. its more like hes no motivation in life
[07-26, 12:08] <Abunja> maybe because there is almost no contest on some other titles. and on others, maybe the other groups aint doing well
[07-26, 12:08] <[TRVE]> That won't help his financial misery though.
[07-26, 12:05] <Abunja> dont watch too much of these days' anime, it wont help you. worse, you might end up being a pedophile, Profuse.
[07-26, 12:03] <Razeth> Why FFF so blue this season? too many stink.
[07-26, 11:44] <[TRVE]> Get a job. Any job. Get down on your knees and beg, if you must.
[07-26, 11:12] <Profuse> and I have no friends.. one day I made a facebook thinking I could get some new friends but it did not happened so I deleted it.
[07-26, 11:09] <Profuse> What do you do at 4:09 in the morning, because you feel depressed and have trouble breathing which keeps you from sleep? and you're so broke thinking what should I do tomorrow
[07-26, 11:07] <Profuse> Mr. Nyaa you are my role model in life, and I have always looked up to you. I got a personal question to ask you
[07-26, 09:37] <OneCrazyRussian> I am playing 1080p 10bit High Profile fine on Core2Duo E6750 with it. With DirectVobSub it even makes softsub with big texture sizes FAST
[07-26, 09:35] <OneCrazyRussian> Although my GTX8800 doesn't want to do hardware render of Flash videos, only HW decode
[07-26, 09:34] <OneCrazyRussian> Anything from 2006 onward supports hardware h.264, ancient times are before that
[07-26, 09:31] <Senfu> I figured already, nothing could support that GPU.
[07-26, 09:30] <Senfu> I actually tried MadVR on a friends laptop (keep in mind it's from ancient times) and it didn't support it.
[07-26, 09:24] <sarachikorita> Low end is disposable. That should be enough food for thought to make a person shy away from the absolute cheapest of the cheap
[07-26, 09:23] <sarachikorita> Well, yeah. Midrange is probably a better longterm investment for someone who doesn't have a lot of money... I run my computers into the ground
[07-26, 09:22] <sarachikorita> It's not unusual for me to have some crappy, upscaled, 1080i TS that I have to run a ton of filters on and in the end it becomes just 480p...
[07-26, 09:21] <Nyaa> The point being that low-end components actually have worse price/performance ratios, so the total cost of ownership becomes higher.
[07-26, 09:19] <sarachikorita> Pretty sure I can play 720p HEVC. I can play 1080p h.264. That's more than enough, considering I rarely deal with anything higher than 720 except as source material, and most of that is still mpeg-2.
[07-26, 09:17] <Nyaa> What's low-end today is already useless. Consider the completely pointless market segment that is $50 graphics cards.
[07-26, 09:16] <Nyaa> 4T is fast becoming a liability.
[07-26, 09:16] <sarachikorita> I usually go by what was low end 5 years ago - a bit lower standard than Nyaa, but still, if your computer's older than that, you really need to upgrade. My computer's no spring chicken, I've had it for like 3 years and got it thirdhand.
[07-26, 09:09] <Hoshizora> i5 2500k ftw
[07-26, 08:54] <Nyaa> I was speaking generally. Personally, I consider anything that's slower than the mainstream high-end of three years ago too slow. That means components such as 2600K/GTX 680/7970 will all be replaced soon enough.
[07-26, 08:49] <Abunja> well, you've seen mine before and you said it isn't that bad. mine is playing fine with madVR. though, i thought i can get more out of it if i had a high spec'd pc.
[07-26, 08:48] <>>=2> as for madVR: there a profiles with change rules so you can set HorribleSubs to medium debanding, 10bit rips to no deabnding and everything else to low.
[07-26, 08:46] <Nyaa> (You want the A10-7850K if so.)
[07-26, 08:45] <Nyaa> http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/processors/desktop/a-series-apu
[07-26, 08:44] <>>=2> mpv android port never ;_;
[07-26, 08:42] <Nyaa> The playback guide is optimal in all relevant cases. If your hardware is too slow for that, you need to upgrade. Those AMD Kaveri APUs are quite capable and cheap.
[07-26, 08:42] <Abunja> using madVR, i mean
[07-26, 08:39] <Abunja> let me ask, Mr. Nyaa. is the playback guide is the optimal setting for our toasters? or is there a better setting for high-end ones?
[07-26, 08:35] <Nyaa> Even the slowest integrated GPUs of today can use madVR just fine.
[07-26, 08:34] <Nyaa> Fortunately, the playback guide isn't an optional read if you want to use this chatbox.
[07-26, 08:30] <DmonHiro> so, bottom line, many people are too dumb to playback 10-bit softsubs.
[07-26, 08:04] <Abunja> i love my toaster
[07-26, 07:04] <Profuse> When using VLC player with these TV media devices everything lags. Like you're watching something in slow-mo
[07-26, 07:03] <Profuse> I'm too poor to make or buy a HTPC so I buy these crappy ass tv media device that cost 100 dollars, not one of them work with VLC player. It's a pain in the ass using handbrake to convert everything and sometimes the files don't even work.
[07-26, 06:31] <sarachikorita> Two solutions: MPV and VLC. Take your pick. No matter the OS.
[07-26, 06:21] <Rakuzo> install cccp then play your mkv softsub video... done.
[07-26, 05:35] <CrossRyuu> deadfish, hi10 and ipunisher right the ripoffs
[07-26, 05:27] <Hoshizora> >VLC
[07-26, 04:34] <FaiT> or just use vlc....
[07-26, 04:15] <tgamtgamorigin> My post is erased...
[07-26, 04:10] <junh1024> You don't need to be a linux kernel developer to play softsubs.
[07-26, 03:55] <BakaYuusha> @Faggot Your name and comment made me laf. Opening any kind of file for anything on a computer is never that simple. :P
[07-26, 03:54] <Hoshizora> It seems to be for so many people.
[07-26, 03:15] <eternia> too hard?
[07-26, 03:15] <eternia> install lav filters for the videos and xy-vs filters for subtitles
[07-26, 02:55] <Faggot> In both cases, you only need to open the file and everything works. How the fuck is one simpler than the other?
[07-26, 02:38] <BakaYuusha> I don't think it's that they're retarded. Mp4s are just simple for people who don't wanna screw with stuff or have issues but mkvs are better for sure.
[07-26, 02:35] <herkz> i don't have playback issues with most things on this website but then again i'm not retarded like some people seem to be
[07-26, 02:33] <astrum> LOL! Shit. I choked there. Nice one.
[07-26, 02:31] <BakaYuusha> People use DeadFish cuz there's no playback issues. They're good.
[07-26, 01:26] <deanzel> Step 1: Create beautiful soft-subs for your release. Step 2: Have Deadfish rip off your release and release an 8-bit hardsub encode that more users will download due to noobs not knowing better. Step 3: .... Step 4: PROFIT!
[07-26, 01:25] <Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♥❄♥ ☆ CaeX ☆ ♥❄♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ> they deserve it
[07-26, 01:25] <Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♥❄♥ ☆ CaeX ☆ ♥❄♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ> I just want to end the discrimination and put the honorifics track first on releases with more than one sub track
[07-26, 00:58] <Abunja> hello, rob
[07-26, 00:57] <Abunja> sugoi, mister donut. where did you get your hands on these BDs? that spam release lol
[07-26, 00:44] <OdinYggd> .MKV bundled releases are the best I think. That way you can choose what subtitle and soundtrack to use of what it offers, and it can be quickly converted to .avi or .mp4 for portable device access in whatever format you prefer
[07-25, 23:20] <sarachikorita> What Hoshizora said. By the way, we've got multiple TS perfectionists and we still softsub. :P
[07-25, 23:16] <BakaYuusha> Softsubs are inconvenient at times for people who don't know what they're doing. For instance the people who complain that subs aren't showing up cuz they don't know how to work their player. A lot of people also have problems with 10bit encodes and complain of soft subs not showing up all the time. Softsubs are still nice if you know what you're doing and don't wanna wait for the nice people to re-encode releases.
[07-25, 23:12] <BakaYuusha> Hardsubs and mp4s are loved for the ease of things. If you're not a hard core tech nerd and just wanna watch anime on anything with any player the look for mp4s.
[07-25, 22:29] <Hoshizora> DON'T Hardsub. Anything. For any reason. Ever. Hardsubbing is the best way to burn out encoders and delay releases forever. If you think you need hardsubs to make a good release, you’re either retarded or a TS perfectionist (they’re mostly equivalent anyway).
[07-25, 22:16] <OneCrazyRussian> Softsub allows: better styling, optional animation, use of customized coordinates and etc.
[07-25, 22:15] <OneCrazyRussian> The bad happens when hardsubbed video is stretched. Text looks more blurry the more stretching AND post-effect shaders are applied to video
[07-25, 22:12] <Artemix> What its so bad about hardsubbed subs?, I don't notice any difference.
[07-25, 22:02] <herkz> neither of them sub anything you retard
[07-25, 22:02] <aers> theres nothing HS does that no one else can do. its not like how-to-rip-CR is some big secret.
[07-25, 21:43] <RobbyLob> @MinnaSubs What are some things you've subbed which HorribleSubs has as well? The qualitative differences between your translations is about the only thing worth judging/criticizing.
[07-25, 21:36] <[TRVE]> It's unlikely, but not impossible.
[07-25, 21:35] <[TRVE]> And what will you do when HorribleSubs cease to exist one day?
[07-25, 21:18] <Kips> why would you wanna rip horriblesubs better or faster or anything a golden painted shit is still shit
[07-25, 20:31] <MinnaSubs> maybe :)
[07-25, 19:54] <BakaYuusha> So it's a race then? :P
[07-25, 19:38] <MinnaSubs> than*
[07-25, 19:38] <MinnaSubs> @BakaYuusha we're not re-uploading what HS put up . we rip as well and sometimes we are fast then HS
[07-25, 19:04] <[TRVE]> Thank you, Captain Obv- sarachikorita.
[07-25, 18:56] <BakaYuusha> @MinnaSubs Why are you just reuploading what HorribleSubs has already put up. Am I missing something here?
[07-25, 18:49] <MinnaSubs> we're back .
[07-25, 18:47] <Kips> whats shit or isnt shit is objective; aka why theres still siscon animes being mad. someone, somewhere likes that kinda trash
[07-25, 18:30] <Abunja> oh, sorry. my bad. its just me assuming
[07-25, 18:27] <sarachikorita> @ lifebaka and [TRVE]: 90% of everything sucks. Just ask Theodore Sturgeon
[07-25, 18:27] <Arkasia> A gaming magazine I used to read always explained that they like mecha to compensate for their small **** size.
[07-25, 18:26] <hazardous> maybe they want to make GiTS age a reality :)
[07-25, 18:09] <eternalmetal> I wonder why Japan is so into robotics?
[07-25, 17:58] <[TRVE]> And Abunja - wrong. I gladly watch and rewatch good animated cartoons.
[07-25, 17:58] <[TRVE]> Most of everything sucks, indeed. The case with anime is that it's a niche medium, known by only a small amount of people and produced by an even smaller amount of people. And only a fraction of those people has actual talent, both for writing and for direction, storyboarding etc. So you can imagine that actual worthwhile content is very scarce, even more scarce compared to wider-spread media. That's why it's worthless - good content is so rare it's practically inexistent.
[07-25, 17:52] <Senfu> I'm not taking him serious haha, just bored
[07-25, 17:21] <Abunja> dont take TRVE so seriously, lifebaka. he finds animation/cartoons unappealing so you cant do anything about it
[07-25, 17:16] <Senfu> Blahblahblah TRVE saying weird stuff again yada yada
