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...

[10-25, 18:49] <haseo> the only thing that deserves being uncensored is....pantsu desu
[10-25, 18:45] <Robert Franklin> While I agree, crazyivan, it's understandable that people are excited; the show is pointless without the guro.
[10-25, 18:39] <shaddrag> CR has confirmed they're showing it tonight/tomorrow.
[10-25, 18:38] <OneCrazyRussian> Uncensored Terra Formars doesn't matter because it sucks balls
[10-25, 18:07] <HerbalNekoTea> And we still wait for more news about why Naisho got a delay to do episode 15 of PriPara.
[10-25, 18:04] <Jabberwok> Wow, yeah, apparently CR is def getting uncens'd Terra... but seems they can't say when yet.
[10-25, 17:43] <shaddrag> Still 7 more hours until 6PM PDT
[10-25, 17:34] <hazardous> are episodes of Terra Formars uncen now? wasn't CR going to rid censors for 24 hr?
[10-25, 16:52] <haseo> I was wron, PriPara ep 17 is today :D look up
[10-25, 16:42] <paulo27ms> mœ
[10-25, 16:35] <MisterDonut> bad
[10-25, 16:11] <haseo> @Lunarfang7789 prolly tomorrow
[10-25, 16:05] <shaddrag> BakedFish focuses on HS-only, DeadFish re-encodes new fansubs and other shows they'd previously been doing HS for.
[10-25, 16:03] <magatsukami> mendokuse
[10-25, 15:48] <Senzura> I've been lied to
[10-25, 15:47] <Senzura> >claps aren't actually in extra magic hour
[10-25, 15:38] <Robert Franklin> OH SHIT paul I just vomited.
[10-25, 15:36] <Robert Franklin> The kind that doesn't make me admit illegal activity online.
[10-25, 15:35] <paulo27ms> http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/96628
[10-25, 15:34] <hazardous> what sort of pipe u use?
[10-25, 15:33] <Robert Franklin> i think bakedfish is a reference to smoking.
[10-25, 15:32] <OneCrazyRussian> I prefer my fish smoked
[10-25, 15:29] <MisterDonut> Lunarfang7789, yes. just check the user that uploads it.
[10-25, 15:28] <Robert Franklin> I don't disagree raven. pky's screenshots show them censoring pant legs and totally random stuff.
[10-25, 15:23] <Lunarfang7789> And is [Bakedfish] affiliated with [Deadfish]?
[10-25, 15:22] <ravenleaf182> Bob, they censor it because otherwise they can't get DVD's to move. They didn't have a problem with limbs and gore for decades, now that people have no reason to buy BD/DVD, they censor. Its marketing, it has nothing to do with morals
[10-25, 15:21] <Lunarfang7789> Does Anyone know how long before the next episode of PriPara will be out? feels like been forever :(
[10-25, 15:21] <Koby> *shouldn't
[10-25, 15:21] <Koby> So their 720p shouln't be labeled remake either even though it's a 're-encode'?
[10-25, 15:19] <herkz> I mean, they're stupid, but it has to be the same kind of torrent to be a remake.
[10-25, 15:19] <herkz> No, because subbed anime and raw anime are different categories.
[10-25, 15:16] <Koby> One group is doing this for their 1080p releases, but re-encoding the video for their 720p. Their 720p should definitely be labeled remake; not only is it re-encoded from a compressed source, but it's done so badly (banding everywhere).
[10-25, 15:13] <Koby> If someone uses one of the 'raw' encodes and muxes subs to it from a fansub group; should the release be tagged 'remake'?
[10-25, 15:06] <cyatek> sasuga pierrot
[10-25, 14:56] <hazardous> yes
[10-25, 14:51] <haseo> lolwhat
[10-25, 14:43] <Robert Franklin> They're just censoring their awful, awful art. It's a great idea: throw black stripes and lens flares everywhere in your anime to obscure shitty drawings. Meanwhile, edgy kids will cum themselves because they're assuming everything is extremely gory.
[10-25, 14:31] <haseo> is it me or LH2 has shown bleeding for the very first time in its series
[10-25, 14:28] <OneCrazyRussian> Or she is retarded and you do anything Meliodas does in Seven Deadly Sins
[10-25, 14:28] <shaddrag> Beware she might be a fallen angel.
[10-25, 14:28] <OneCrazyRussian> Or you put sth on the ground before her and she falls down on you
[10-25, 14:22] <xell17> Or you walk in on her while she is changing.
[10-25, 14:21] <xell17> Or you topple over and grab her breasts.
[10-25, 14:17] <xell17> Only if you bump into her while she has a toast in her mouth and then you see her pantsu
[10-25, 14:14] <Senzura> So I have a date with a qt asian thursday, is my life an anime now?
[10-25, 14:01] <Abunja> oh, i thought you are still talking about terraformars. gomen
[10-25, 13:59] <Bobezlol> They censor things like that because severed limbs are a bigger deal in japan
[10-25, 13:56] <shaddrag> Abunja, pky is referring to the BDs. The black boxes are mostly gone but there's still some signs of censorship, and I suppose it gets to me too if those screenshots with black blobs still on them are the BD version, I just think he was being a little unreasonable expecting every gory scene to have new angles and frames.
[10-25, 13:44] <itachi_1s_alive> @pky, They know something you don't. Don't be that hard on yourself, kid.
[10-25, 13:35] <MCR75> Does anyone know of a good batch torrent of Valvrave the Liberator, preferably in 1080p with both seasons?
[10-25, 13:33] <Abunja> remember, we are watching the TV version. expect it of that, especially japan. even their porn is censored.
[10-25, 13:31] <Abunja> buy the BDs then if you want to watch it that badly
[10-25, 13:21] <Senzura> Because I would rather watch anime as opposed to black boxes
[10-25, 13:21] <Senzura> >why are you people so bothered by censorship
[10-25, 12:56] <shaddrag> *spits*
[10-25, 12:55] <shaddrag> Lol. What I did see of the Nisekoi BD had one scene in normal colour when the TV one had been inverted, I was like, what? Sure, changing shit can be done, but you shouldn't come to expect it.
[10-25, 12:55] <pky> I feel like I'm having a conversation with a llama or something. The point is that the censors weren't necessary and were only put there for people to buy the BDs. What's so wrong about this leg that it needed to be censored? Or this one? What was wrong with this black ball (or this one) that they needed to be further censored? (oh wait, you said they removed the black bars?) What's wrong with an eye? What's wrong with this head in the bottom? What's so wrong with this face?
[10-25, 12:51] <xell17> unheard-of
[10-25, 12:51] <xell17> Changing shit completely is not unheard of. See Shaft.
[10-25, 12:48] <shaddrag> Removing black bars and shadows is what's expected of a BD, which TG did. Changing shots and reanimating is asking way too much, you're basically expecting them to do the episode twice.
[10-25, 12:46] <pky> @Abunja and that's fine for the TV version. But when the BD version has almost the same level of censorship, that's when things are not good.
[10-25, 12:40] <pky> hyperlink fail...
[10-25, 12:39] <pky> [url=http://i.imgur.com/rxKjG3B.png]This shot[/ur] looks way better with that leg or whatever placed in front of the (I guess) cut off hand.
[10-25, 12:39] <Abunja> seriously, why are you people so bothered with censorship? they placed that there since it may be a bit disturbing to other audiences. idk the case of terraformars but if the censorship became more like an obstruction to cause the show lose valuable details, i can say that it is right to just remove the censorship.
[10-25, 12:38] <pky> Yeah, that shot I linked earlier certainly looked best in video form with that column right where the cut part should be. Please, you're making me laugh.
[10-25, 12:31] <shaddrag> Now that's just being pky. I liked a certain full-body artwork of Naruto in one of the Manga chapters, and when it was made into Anime, it didn't show the full-shot, not because his dick was showing, but because that's how it looked best in video form, or the person who did the frame selection or whatever's decision. If you call that censoring too, it's going a little too far.
[10-25, 12:22] <pky> (fucking enter...) can't see the place where the head is cut off is still censoring it.
[10-25, 12:21] <pky> Placing the camera angle so that you can
[10-25, 12:21] <pky> Example: censoring
[10-25, 12:20] <pky> It's still censoring, m8. Black screen is not the only type of censorship.
[10-25, 12:20] <pky> >it's shadows and lighting, it's not censoring.
[10-25, 12:11] <shaddrag> Yeah, I see that and I have checked the BDs myself, but it's shadows and lighting, it's not censoring.
[10-25, 12:08] <Bobezlol> http://imgur.com/a/tvt2r
[10-25, 12:00] <Bobezlol> a few things are still censored, looks like to reduce production costs of having to draw details
[10-25, 11:51] <shaddrag> Oh, are the TG BD's censored to some degree too? Some person was saying that and I really have no hope for the human race then.
[10-25, 11:49] <shaddrag> Agreed, but then why turn around and suddenly advertise the uncensored? They probably got a lot of complaints, and rightly so.
[10-25, 11:48] <cyatek> and some censor to hide the fact that there is no gore at all ahah, sad http://imgur.com/a/tvt2r
[10-25, 11:45] <Crowmando> I also read the argument that if they censor the anime now, it might help the Blu-ray/DVD sales since people will want to watch it uncensored
[10-25, 11:25] <cyatek> well then there would be no tv broadcast
[10-25, 11:23] <shaddrag> They make it sound like it comes censored and they have to work to uncensor it. Which begs the question, why show a censored version in the first place if they're just gonna stream an uncensored one later? Why would the studios do that?
[10-25, 11:20] <cyatek> meh thought they were planning to have the uncensored version every week..
[10-25, 11:16] <shaddrag> HS, v2 pls
[10-25, 11:15] <hazardous> TERRAFORMARS Uncensored 24 hours Starting Saturday 6pm PT
[10-25, 11:12] <shaddrag> Raw only released as I left for work :'( Had to delay it until tomorrow I'm afraid, or very late tonight. CR video was watchable until the last 5 minutes where it became total shit.
[10-25, 10:47] <ThirdWorld> shaddrag make with the FT
[10-25, 10:11] <cyatek> hs..
[10-25, 09:35] <shaddrag> Currently? Doubt it.
[10-25, 09:33] <Crowmando> Anyone planning on re releasing the first 3 episodes of Terraformars since CR is airing uncensored versions of them

[10-25, 03:26] <fredgido> how do people put it back to 24fps?
[10-25, 03:25] <fredgido> some shows repeat frames when converting from 23.976 to 30 by inserting repeated frames
