The last of the old raws coming soon

I remade almost all of my old torrents after the nyaa.se collapse in May, with one exception: The Leisure Club 1. I didn’t remake this one, because at the time I knew I had the second volume on the way from Japan. As it turns out, it took a few months longer than I thought it would, but I received it this week and am working on it now. So, in the very near future both parts will be released together.

I never remade my old subtitled works. Of those: I need to recapture Yagami’s Family Problem one of these days, but the volume 2 disc is trapped inside a broken player. Who’s Left Behind is FINALLY being reissued on R2 DVD later this month, no point in my recapturing that. I might purchase it if nobody else remakes it and do it myself. Exper Zenon has been remade by somebody else already.

That leaves Stardust Paradise and Mospeada Live Love Alive. I want to recapture Stardust Paradise, but can’t find the disk at the moment. I’ll probably re-release Mospeada at the same time as I do Stardust Paradise, whenever that is.

Miracle Girls 33-34

So I got word, through a third-party, that somebody on BakaBT believes they have contacted me regarding Miracle Girls episode 33 and 34, as they were actually dupes of 35 and 36. I don’t know whom you imagine you have contacted, because it certainly wasn’t me. In any event, fixing now. But since you haven’t ACTUALLY contacted me, I have no way to get the corrected files to you directly, so I guess you’ll just have to grab them from the public torrent once I post it.

RE: Laserdisc donations

I feel the need to set a policy with regards to donations, as its actually become a bit of an issue. I never imagined I would need to do such a thing, so thanks and stuff, folks. The short version is: I’ll capture your discs, but I am not accepting free discs anymore.

If you have anime laserdiscs you want me to capture, I’m open to that, I can capture your disc and send it back to you. I am (probably) open to buying the disc from you. If you are buying discs from somewhere to send to me, I insist on paying for at least part of it.

Let us be very clear: In capturing laserdiscs and releasing those captures, I am willfully violating both Title 17 of the United States Code in my own country, and the Berne Treaty Convention in pretty much every other country on the planet. I am NOT, however, going to profit off of my criminal activities. And getting a bunch of free discs is just profit in another form. So thank you, but my ancient fansubber paladin code is kicking in.

As a side issue: There is no point to my capturing a laserdisc if a title has already been reissued on DVD or Bluray. You’ll get better results from those.

PPP releases migrating

Due to the collapse of Nyaa in the wake of the (completely obvious) Dutch fansub ruling, I am in the process of migrating releases to anirena.com. Anirena allows multiple trackers, which nyaa mostly disabled, but doesn’t have functioning DHT, which sucks. Anyhow, I’m just doing a few a day, so it will be a few days before everything is restored.

I will never release titles on a private tracker. If you see my stuff on a private tracker, it didn’t come from me. I have no interest in stroking the ego of leet file hoarders. I’m breaking the law for the benefit of the general public, not just for a select few.

If patsu.cat is ever finished I will also release there, but at the moment its still a work-in-progress.
