[07-31, 02:56] <lifebaka
> I think you might find that a little difficult, AChannelSideB. From what I understand about Japan, they don't eat a lot of nuts there. And I especially doubt that all that many people carry nuts around with them, as well, so the number of nuts you'll find to be kicked is probably gonna' be pretty small.

> anime studios actually use worse methods to upscale stuff to 1080p than we can use (i.e. we can use nnedi3_rpow2 and they generally use bilinear/bicubic resizers)

> is nyaa panicking or not minding the regulation thing..
[07-30, 23:51] <MoJo-X
> RobbyLob: Agreed. Mary Elizabeth McGlynn's definitely fits the character's personality better.
[07-30, 23:51] <MoJo-X
> * for shows that were digitally remastered in HD. Gundam Seed comes into mind at the top of my head.
[07-30, 23:47] <MoJo-X
> No, the 1080p version for some shows are actually done poorly by some studios, thus making it look like shit. Even if the 1080p version is a "little" better than the 720p, it's still not worth it. This is why some fansub groups don't even bother with a 1080p version.
[07-30, 23:42] <xell17
> Or do you mean the 720p and 1080p versions looks just as shitty?
[07-30, 23:41] <xell17
> How can it look like ass compared to 720p if the upscaling is done by the studio? I assume it would at best look the same if the downscaling is done properly.
[07-30, 23:40] <RobbyLob
> MoJo-X: Heh, coincidentally I prefer those same shows in English. Particularly GitS with Mary Elizabeth McGlynn.
[07-30, 23:38] <MoJo-X
> I have to agree with boredatwork. Some 1080p upscales look like ass, and I just get the 720p version.
[07-30, 23:36] <MoJo-X
> RobbyLob: I have to admit that some of the English VA's outclass the JA's for certain shows. DBZ is a prime example of this. The dialog in Japanese is better but the voices are so much better in English to me. People may give Funimation shit for licensing everything, but I will give them credit where credit due with what they did with DBZ. Yu Yu Hakusho, Ghost in the Shell SAC, and Cowboy Bebop also have really good English VA casts, and strangely enough, I prefer them over the Japanese VA's. Anyway I take pride in being a scurvy pirate (I don't pirate my games though lol).
[07-30, 23:33] <boredatwork
> and some people just don't need upscales that don't look any better then 720p
[07-30, 23:33] <Krissen94
> haha, I didn't even notice xP
[07-30, 23:31] <RobbyLob
> Krissen: Apparently I have bad English because I can't spell "you" correctly, lol.
[07-30, 23:31] <MoJo-X
> Krissen94, there are multiple reasons for people wanting 720p over 1080p. 1) Some people don't want to wait longer to download 1080p releases since the file sizes are larger. 2) Some people have ISPs that put bandwidth caps on their connections, so this kind of ties in with point 1. 3) Some people don't have computers with hardware that is good enough for smooth playback with 1080p releases. 4) Some people don't have the harddrive space for 1080p since their files sizes are larger than 720p releases.
[07-30, 23:30] <RobbyLob
> MoJo-X: Nah you're not being a jerk. I agree that fansubs more often explain cultural notes, which I enjoy a lot. I very much disagree re. the VA aspect, but that's just personal opinion. It's not like it stops us from enjoying shows :)
[07-30, 23:29] <mouchan
> 720, 1080...the difference is negligable, and as such, interchangable. One would need must postulate as to the veracity of one over the other without prior knowledge.
[07-30, 23:29] <mongolhorde
> are you going to do gundam seed destiny box 4?
[07-30, 23:27] <RobbyLob
> Krissen: Your don't have bad English :)
[07-30, 23:27] <MoJo-X
> I agree with what you said. I understand fansubs are immune to mistakes, actually quite most of them makes mistakes all the time, however, I'd still rather prefer them because they go into detail at trying to explain certain cultural phrases or terms; the official subs don't. The swearing in fansubs maybe exaggerated, and honestly sometimes that pisses me off, especially since most of the times it's just plain out wrong, but I'd rather have that than nothing or "dumbed-down". For your third point, I meant that the English VA's aren't nearly good as the Japanese VA's are. The Japanese VA's do a significantly better job at expressing emotion than their English VA counterparts do. Not trying to be a jerk or anything, but I'm just explaining my logic.
[07-30, 23:27] <JohnVaughan
> Are we done being idiots yet? It's been an entire afternoon. Surely we're done.
[07-30, 23:25] <Krissen94
> Thanks Robby :) I was just wondering, cause I thought 1080p was better than 720p, but whenever I'm about to download another anime, I allways see people who want 720p instead of 1080p, and sry about the bad english
[07-30, 23:23] <RobbyLob
> Krissen: I have a crappy video card on my computer, which is a number of years old, and anything that's 1080p will not play without skipping so badly that it's unwatchable. I' m sure that puts me in the minority, but I prefer 720p for that reason.
[07-30, 23:21] <Krissen94
> Why does people want 720p instead of 1080p? :P
[07-30, 23:15] <RobbyLob
> MoJo-X: Thanks for the thoughtful reply. A few things I'd like to mention, and I apoligize if you already know this or it souds redundant. One, fansubs are not immune to mistake; they're often amateurs, not professionals. Two, swearing is fansubs is grossly overaggerated. And three, dub dialog is much more different than subs since it has to match existing animation; unless you meant you have a problem with English VA's voices, and that's an opinion I'm certainly not going to criticize even though I like many of them.
[07-30, 23:14] <nanaone
> OMG MUH ANIMUS, RIP IN PIECES NYAA ;___;
[07-30, 23:05] <MoJo-X
> RobbyLob, I'll admit that I can't speak or write Japanese, but even I can make out certain phrases. After comparing them to fansubs, the official subtitles sometimes miss the mark completely. Also the swearing is almost never accurately translated, or just sugar coated. Certain cultural terms are never translated also. To me, it's just the way the original dialog is supposed to be. Don't get me started on the dubbing... tldr: fansubs > offcial subs
[07-30, 23:00] <SneakiestNEG
> So all is not lost if the unthinkable happens. THE CENTRE WILL HOLD
[07-30, 22:58] <SneakiestNEG

[07-30, 22:58] <Artemix
> So.. did something happen then?
[07-30, 22:56] <RobbyLob
> MoJo-X: Why do you think the subtitles are generally bad? I hear that complaint a lot and frankly it doesn't make much sense to me.
[07-30, 22:56] <HerbalNekoTea
> I guest like 90% of the time, the team of Nyaa are all trolling. XD Kinda more real than an april fool. D:
[07-30, 22:55] <MoJo-X

[07-30, 22:53] <SneakiestNEG
> Hell even Americans use a VPN to access netflix lol but for different reasons.
[07-30, 22:45] <SneakiestNEG
> You are just a different kind of pirate. Of course netflix tries to ignore the fact that the whole world uses vpn or hola to access netflix USA.
[07-30, 22:45] <MoJo-X
> The main reason why I wouldn't buy anime on the DVDs or BDs is because the absolute shit job that licensing companies do. The translations of the subtitles are crap, and the true dialog is lost, along with cultural references. Couldn't care less for the English dub because the voices pretty much fail most of the time at representing the character's personality. Also, the pricing is a joke. $50-70 for a 12- episode anime? You might as well try to fuck me sideways while you're at it. =P
