Crossing fingers for a good end.
2011-10-07 at 23:19 UTC
The video quality leaves much to be desired.
2011-10-07 at 23:19 UTC

kinda tsundere there, huh?
2011-10-07 at 23:19 UTC
А я смотрел только мувик =D
Tnx Commie!

OMG FINALLY ITS OUT!!! Now all thats left is to wait for eclipse :D Thanks for this release as well Commie!!
2011-10-08 at 00:28 UTC

It's a 10bit encode. I can't watch it either so your best bet is to get cccp or wait patiently for SS-Eclipse subs.
2011-10-08 at 00:35 UTC
Thank you
I will wait for 8bit version . .
2011-10-08 at 00:56 UTC

Or just update your codecs
2011-10-08 at 01:24 UTC
FINALLY!! been waiting for this for months... Thanks

SS-Eclipse going to sub this??
2011-10-08 at 01:27 UTC
Love the first episode of season 3,
2011-10-08 at 01:31 UTC

Yes SS-Eclipse is going to sub season 3.


I did that a few days ago and it didn't work.
2011-10-08 at 01:39 UTC
Will SS-Eclipsev add his works in Nyaa ?
2011-10-08 at 02:09 UTC
>Look at me, I don't know how to update my codecs, so I'm going to blame the sub groups.
2011-10-08 at 02:11 UTC
just updated your codecs people 10 bit is not the end of the world, people were the same way when people moved from xvid to 8 bit now they complain about 8 to 10
2011-10-08 at 02:17 UTC
You ppl just don't stop, don't you?

2011-10-08 at 02:20 UTC
Get a new computer any computer made in the last 4 years should be able to play with updated codecs, if your comp is older than 4 years or so shitty it cant play 10 bit than its time to upgrade
2011-10-08 at 02:21 UTC
2011-10-08 at 02:22 UTC
laptops and desk tops are cheap upgrade
2011-10-08 at 02:34 UTC
Check this out first while waiting patiently for eclipse

2011-10-08 at 03:13 UTC
stop complaining about free stuff, it makes u guys look like... like... like morons.
2011-10-08 at 03:19 UTC
Really, if you have troubles with 8-bit with other hardware, then encode the video yourself to 8-bit. Really ppl, it is not that hard. I mean rly, 5 min on google will guide you to a dumb software and dumb clicks to solve that, most human beings can do it. So just do it. Quality won't drop (almost nothing anyway) if you do it right.
2011-10-08 at 03:20 UTC
Just wait for .avi or wait till others make remix files if you're gonna use it on other devices. No reason that the main releases should have to cater to alternative ways of watching
2011-10-08 at 03:22 UTC
nice thanks
2011-10-08 at 03:23 UTC
I've never had a single problem with a 10bit video and this release looked and played perfectly fine for me.

Thanks for the subs, this season looks like its going to be good.
2011-10-08 at 03:28 UTC
The point is that this site doesn't need to cater to retards. If they can't figure out how to use 10bit, just go stream in shit quality or something.

Sorry if I sound angry, I'm just really getting tired of this being an ongoing issue when it has a very simple solution to play 10bit
2011-10-08 at 03:33 UTC
Thanks for this!
2011-10-08 at 03:44 UTC
I really wish there's "like" or "thanks" button on the torrent comment section.
2011-10-08 at 04:26 UTC
Yeah, the present discussion for now are the tagging system and the fansub's encoding favorite choice, not how to play 10bit and calling retard each other.

- The tagging system; It's up to Nyaa and the fansubs.
- The fansub's encoding favorite choice; Absolutely, it is the fansub's right.

We should stay calm and try to understand the problems obviously. No more unnecessary flood comment. ^_^

>Watching anime on plastic toys
For fuck's sake, what the fuck are you doing nigger?
2011-10-08 at 06:16 UTC
If your device doesn't play the current format, it's your responsibility to either update your hardware, update your firmware (if available), or cross encode. Subtitle groups have absolutely zero obligation to cater to legacy hardware.

Retarded PC users who can't take ten seconds to upside their codecs have no business complaining, and retarded hardware player users who think the world should cater to their outdated minority have no business complaining either.

Thanks for the release, Commie.
2011-10-08 at 06:29 UTC
there wont be anymore 8bit releases right? as said in the site of commie itself, but there is a tutorial on how to turn 10bit to 8bit
2011-10-08 at 06:33 UTC
hey mmark,
|┳┻|ヘ_∧ you're a moron.
2011-10-08 at 06:48 UTC

Horriblesubs will still be 8bit, since Crunchyroll encodes suck, and failure groups may still stay 8bit. But any real fansub group will be 10bit from now on
2011-10-08 at 06:50 UTC
whoa, reading all these comments was funny.
I guess it will keep on for a while until 10-bit completely takes over the community.
2011-10-08 at 06:55 UTC
I've been waiting for this
2011-10-08 at 07:16 UTC
I just made an account to post this...

I did update my codecs to CCCP, I installed everything that was included in that pack. After which, I tried to play the 10-bit video and still got a Green screen of junk.
Tell me, where would some better codecs be?
2011-10-08 at 07:50 UTC
Hey mmark, did anyone tell you you are complete retard yet?

>Name and/or description do(es) not match the contents.

2011-10-08 at 08:03 UTC
Soup guys, I'm finished with UBW.

Also mmark, I'm ESL and I can write, read, and speak better than you. That shows how much of a retard you are.
2011-10-08 at 08:05 UTC

I will keep this simple since you may struggle to keep up.

You claim 30 years experience in "video transmission and encoding", but sadly we have a problem. If you have 30 years in that job field chances are very high you would need to have a college degree which could be no less than 2-4 years for what you claim. Furthemore you would need to be at the least 18 years of age on average to get into college at all. I have seen 16 year old people get in, but that is rare and usually in the case of someone rather smart, which you don't seem to be considering you misspelled several words that are grade school level.

So I am forced to conclude you are in your 50s or maybe even 60s and still watching anime and misspelling grade school words. I find that hard to think this is the case, but you know I don't doubt it is possible. However the most likely answer is you are a underage teenager who cannot afford a proper computer or mommy and daddy won't buy you a 3 Jigahertz PC, and therefore cannot play 10-bit video and are trying to drag down the rest of the crowd (like you XviD scum) which makes me sick.

With much hate and butthurt,


TL;DR: Read it you faggots, it would do you fucks so good to read once in a while.
2011-10-08 at 08:09 UTC
And yes I did not into grammar properly either, but it is 4am, I'm tired, I'm really mad, and I don't give a fuck.

But anyway, thanks for this! \o/
2011-10-08 at 08:38 UTC
I'm trying (very fuck'n hard) to assume that he still haven't read in the blog (or don't know Commie has a blog). I don't want to mark someone be retard more and more cause I feel guilty today (angelic Satan mode).

mmark, you haven't read it, right? Right? lolz.
2011-10-08 at 10:26 UTC
Just play the video with MPC-HC which came out with the latest CCCP, and enjoy your magic.
WMP and other players might play the video, but requires rather tricky method.
2011-10-08 at 10:57 UTC
I got in college when I was 16 y.o. and it turns out now I'm just like Satou-kun(NHK FUCK YEAH).
2011-10-08 at 12:44 UTC
Where's my Eclipse? Goddamnit, why must it be Commie?
2011-10-08 at 14:18 UTC
thx for this release
2011-10-08 at 14:23 UTC
How to play this via DXVA or CUDA?
2011-10-08 at 14:32 UTC
That's what open minded means, I don't live in a cave. BTW, did you pay these people? Do you think they should give a fuck about your or even my opinion? You never do anything, all you do is download the FREE things they are offering, nobody is forcing you, but you still complain about it. It's like begging for money and when someone gives you some you say it's not enough. This has happened so many times...wmv>xvid>x264.mp4>x264.mkv>10 bit... and people are still surprised about these things.
2011-10-08 at 14:51 UTC
I dont care about 10 bit or 8 bit or whatever, i just want to watch my fav anime.
Please give me a solution to watch this with hardware acceleration and good quality.
2011-10-08 at 15:01 UTC
If you think that the only benefit is the smaller file size, I feel sorry for you. Whatever, it's your loss, not mine.

Currently, there's no hardware acceleration available with 10bit-encoded video. So, your solution is to watch it on a decent PC with updated codecs. Any PC from 2007 and beyond should be enough.
2011-10-08 at 15:07 UTC
I'm crying :(
Its sure playable but consumes much CPU and freezes sometimes.
Anyway, thanks for answering...
2011-10-08 at 15:13 UTC
Mad 8-bit babies still complaining about something they can't do shit about I see.
2011-10-08 at 15:43 UTC
@Ryan CR probably still does 8-bit for pretty much the reason we see here. Their encode sucked but now yea they r cool for constant sizes.
2011-10-08 at 15:46 UTC
10-bit video is fun and all, but what's up with the file size? Most of the Hi10p 720p FLAC BR rips I have are under 300MB, and this is just a tv-rip... Just curious.
2011-10-08 at 15:56 UTC

This episode has tons of fast moving animation and fire detail, so it takes up a lot of space. It would likely be 500-550mb for 8bit
2011-10-08 at 16:11 UTC
@fureimu Don't easily give up, you can do it. Keep walking when you have good enough GPU (or... the correct settings). ( ´_ゝ`)

The most frequently found problem why you can't play 10bit or can play it in a bit suck, even you already have 10bit supported codec packs, is about wrong settings. You should force the codec (CoreAVC, LAV, bla bla bla...) you use to work mainly in your player (program on the PC).

These pages can help you getting 10bit compatible magic, more or less. (Watching H.264 by using DXVA) (Watching H.264 by using CUDA) (Watching H.264 by using DXVA Intel GPU) (Great combo; PotPlayer with madVR + DXVA /CUDA)

Good luck. Today, though I have a fever but I kindly to help everyone, really. ( ゚ヮ゚)
2011-10-08 at 20:26 UTC
If you got trouble with 10-bit, uninstall CCCP, it's bloated with useless software and ffdshow sucks now. Get MPC and LAV, that's the only 2 things you'll ever need nowadays. And probably madVR for optional better quality.
2011-10-10 at 22:58 UTC
Doesn't work for me, tried and tried on vlc, but there is only audio and a green screen.
2011-10-12 at 03:23 UTC
wow, that's a lot of comments
2011-10-14 at 21:53 UTC
finaly new shana, also to the ppl that is q.q´ing on 10bit, its not a prob that ppl is starting to change from 8bit to 10bit. and to thoes ppl that say to get a new cpu, that did not rly work for me. my cpu is barely half year old and it still cant handle 10 bit..well my vlc cant handle it anyway (encode fail and only a full green screen on prog or something) so asking, does any1 know a working mediaplayer that can handle 10bit?
2011-10-18 at 04:54 UTC
You are all idiots you know that? It is'nt about how good your PC is and it's it's certainly not about the 8bits & 10bits! It's about their damn video codec that no got damn "normal" media player can run without some special installation program for those codecs and you can't just update them if was that simple then my VLC is fucked beyond belief. So do it like this instead take this files from Commie shove it in their asses and tell them to go fuck themselves and download from others!!
Oh and before I forget; How I know it's not the PC cause I have the newest fucking things cost me 3000 Euros!
2011-10-28 at 23:00 UTC
Arigatou, Commie!!!
2011-11-26 at 03:08 UTC
Aw. I don't know Shakugan no Shana already have season 3. Thank you commie =)

[10-31, 18:57] <OnDeed> [TRVE]: I don't know the mecahnics, but if it is a part of the codec's tuning, it probably is so. There can be signaling costs (from what I read, the encoder actually switches the modes on/off depending on what is more favorable mode), effects of quantization etc. It is not weird that a compression tool would not be useful in some scenarios (for example, just look at HE-AAC, which is onyl good for low bitrates and aac encoders automatically switch to LC as bitrate goes up. Moral = don't force parameters, trust the presets)...
[10-31, 18:37] <shaddrag> Not this shit again.
[10-31, 18:29] <pky> @klaudinnei "uncensored"
[10-31, 18:12] <shaddrag> I have worse than bad Internet and I don't even download those starved re-encodes xD
[10-31, 18:11] <klaudinnei> tokyo ghoul vol. 02 uncensored came out today in Japan, when they post here.
[10-31, 18:10] <herkz> No one gives a fuck about people with bad Internet. Just download the 480p release instead.
[10-31, 17:59] <[TRVE]> That made me curious.
[10-31, 17:58] <[TRVE]> Oh, and could you please explain how "joint stereo" degrades quality?
[10-31, 17:54] <[TRVE]> And in general, people are dumb. For example, some Russian rippers maintained the unshakeable belief that for CBR 320 you had to use LAME 3.93.1 and no other version because the frequency cut-off for this version is set really high, so you get spectres that looked like those of a CD. If this sounds both shady and dumb to you - it is. But you couldn't convince them otherwise, because "just do a spectral analysis, man".
[10-31, 17:48] <[TRVE]> OnDeed: Many frontends simply used presets instead of gathering data and generating a command line. 320 kbps CBR would be "insane" and that is set to "stereo" per default. People would just select "320" and click start without bothering with details. Also, with MS joint stereo, you'll get an even higher bitrate per channel, so why not use that.

[10-31, 15:29] <Artemix> A question for the experts, what is the limiting quality factor that produces a frying-like sound when I hear songs with multiple voices, for example some of the Queen songs.

[10-31, 14:43] <MisterDonut> what is a google
[10-31, 14:30] <124997186> How to download it? I am a freshman
[10-31, 14:16] <OnDeed> 160kbps per mono channel is quite high, even for MP3, after all, so I'm pretty sure not using joint stereo despite it actually being helpful would not cause audible damage
[10-31, 14:15] <shaddrag> For the record, my 320kbps mp3's are fine to my non-elitist ears.
[10-31, 14:12] <OnDeed> "<[TRVE]> And I maintain what I said before: 320 kbps mp3 sounded and sometimes still sounds like crap because people didn't change the default settings and encoded both channels fully." --- where do you get this from? In reality, I think many codecs disable joint stereo or mid-side coding when on higher bitrates *to prevent quality degradation*. That might actually include Lame, though I'm not sure

[10-31, 10:07] <shaddrag> "will it work with my toaster?"
[10-31, 08:54] <sarachikorita> I think in the real world people don't really care about that extra bit of quality or that extra few bytes of compression, they want to know, "will it work with my player?"
[10-31, 08:48] <ravil> Ank is gay
[10-31, 08:45] <sarachikorita> For what you share with others, if you use some hipster format nobody else uses, people are gonna need special software, they're just gonna turn around and say fuck you, and download from someone else who uses a better-supported format.
[10-31, 08:45] <[TRVE]> And I maintain what I said before: 320 kbps mp3 sounded and sometimes still sounds like crap because people didn't change the default settings and encoded both channels fully. They effectively got the sound of 160 kpbs. Nobody in their right mind used the Fraunhofer encoder even back then, LAME was and still is the way to go.
[10-31, 08:42] <sarachikorita> FLAC is common and has good support; it being open source is a plus. Wavpack and TTA may be open source but about nobody uses them - if they use anything else it's the proprietary and semi-proprietary formats ALAC, SHN and APE. What you use for your own stash is your business but IMO it's daft to use anything but FLAC for lossless.
[10-31, 08:41] <[TRVE]> As long as there is no hardware support without patching the firmware, anything other than FLAC has no future.
[10-31, 07:57] <BaeOonk Hke> its amazing web site its easy to download any anime on 1080p
[10-31, 07:47] <junh1024> Wavpack, otoh, is open sauce, and supported just well amonst my tools, has a few benefits over FLAC (sometimes smaller size), and so I can suggest WV as a lossless codec.
[10-31, 07:46] <junh1024> Although TAK may have the best lossless compression, it's a proprietary codec, and isn't supported well enough amonst my tools to warrant switching to it.
[10-31, 07:45] <junh1024> 320kps MP3 ripped from aeons ago may sound crap simply because the encoders were crap back then. Modern encoders like LAME on 320kps now should sound better than any back then.
[10-31, 07:44] <junh1024> < note how the graph stop at about 128kps. This is about when the low-delay restriction of Opus is apprently detrimental. AAC has served us well for many years, and will continue doing so. There's new xsns for AAC being developed, too.

[10-31, 02:16] <BreakYourNeko> Lol at people talking about MP3 degrading over the years a few hours ago. The reason they sound bad is because they used a bad encoder. Not all MP3s even at the same bitrate are equal. A lot of mp3 encoders up to somewhat recently were very bad.

[10-30, 19:02] <Artemix> pfff.. I still have a 850 Seagate HDD from 1996. I use it to boot Windows 95.
[10-30, 18:34] <()blivion> My 160GB IDE I have had since 2007 just died from this.
[10-30, 15:41] <sephirotic> That's Old but GOLD Senzura.
[10-30, 14:33] <Tysonblast> "rotational velocidensity" still gets me every time
[10-30, 14:31] <Lunarfang7789> Ok I know I asked already by I forgot to look, How long till Pri Para Naisho? ;(
[10-30, 14:21] <Artemix> From that char comparison FLAC is the boss.
[10-30, 14:10] <eraser> nice meme
[10-30, 14:06] <Senzura> I started collecting MP3s in about 2001, and if I try to play any of the tracks I downloaded back then, even the stuff I grabbed at 320kbps, they just sound like crap. The bass is terrible, the midrange…well don’t get me started. Some of those albums have degraded down to 32 or even 16kbps. FLAC rips from the same period still sound great, even if they weren’t stored correctly, in a cool, dry place. Seriously, stick to FLAC, you may not be able to hear the difference now, but in a year or two, you’ll be glad you did.
[10-30, 14:06] <Senzura> Hearing the difference now isn’t the reason to encode to FLAC. FLAC uses lossless compression, while MP3 is ‘lossy’. What this means is that for each year the MP3 sits on your hard drive, it will lose roughly 12kbps, assuming you have SATA – it’s about 15kbps on IDE, but only 7kbps on SCSI, due to rotational velocidensity. You don’t want to know how much worse it is on CD-ROM or other optical media.
[10-30, 12:43] <blackrepo> Retrying (sorry Nyaa) Robomaru Play Store
[10-30, 12:41] <blackrepo> fail
[10-30, 12:40] <blackrepo> Derp. Formatted: [b]Robomaru[b] Play Store link
[10-30, 12:38] <blackrepo> Robomaru -
[10-30, 12:37] <blackrepo> Sooo guys. I created an Android app for subbed release (auto increment for eps, targeted RSS mode, etc). Just pair it with Flud or aTorrent and you're set for the season.
[10-30, 12:07] <Nyaa> I imagine 1.3.1 is just around the corner.
[10-30, 12:05] <Nyaa> is legit.
[10-30, 11:59] <[TRVE]> Is 1.3 stable and if yes, will we get a Windows build?
[10-30, 11:27] <Nyaa> Related
[10-30, 11:24] <Nyaa> Also, FLAC has checksumming on by default.
[10-30, 11:22] <Nyaa> Note that FLAC is being actively developed (again).
[10-30, 11:21] <Nyaa>
[10-30, 11:01] <coldhell> TAK encodes far faster than FLAC and it produces smaller files (5-20% from my test), so there is no reason for you to use FLAC on PC.
[10-30, 10:50] <[TRVE]> At that point I simply rip the CD to FLAC just to be done with it.
[10-30, 10:49] <[TRVE]> Unfortunately for me, the music I listen to often has noisy instruments and is mastered by idiots with two left hands. MP3 sometimes turns this into a wall of noise.
[10-30, 10:46] <[TRVE]> MP3 at 320kbps CBR is a bad choice because people tend to forget that this setting automatically uses "full stereo" (for a lack of a better term) which encodes both channels as is. At "joint stereo" the result is alright for many recordings. And yes, both that and VBR V0 are the technical limits of mp3.
