Hi guys, it’s been a while since my last post 3 months ago. First and foremost, I would like to apologize for my long absence since the end of last March. A lot of things happened and although I told you guys about the 3 month hiatus in the 3-month-old previous post, I think it is worth to explain to you guys about it.
Just to inform you, effective on tomorrow onwards (starting from iM@S Ep 13 release), all releases will be re-encoded with 10-bit encoding (Hi10p), so make sure you’ve installed the recent release of one of the codecs below which now able to play any 10-bit encoded videos:
- CCCP ~Combined Community Codec Pack (latest version: July 30, 2011)
- K-Lite Codec Pack (latest version: 7.7.0 August 29, 2011)
I don’t want to re-encode with 10-bit together with currently default 8-bit method simultaneously since 10-bit took a long time to finish. With this method, size will be decreased, yet the quality still the same.
Yeah, most of fansub groups are now using this method too for their future releases starting this month. Don’t know what is 10-bit encoding, read further infos here.
If you feel like this is too much for you, please inform me.
Amagami SS that was aired last year (July-December 2010) now will be going to get a 2nd season series.

EDIT: You have to look at this PV of the upcoming anime this summer, Kami-sama no Memo-chō (神様のメモ帳?, lit. “God’s Memo Pad”). It looks promising. For those who have watched Hanasaku Iroha, you’re familiar with this character design, guess who? Same person, isn’t it? The anime adapted from the light novel by Hikaru Sugii is produced by J.C. Staff and it will be premiered on July 10, 2011. A must watch for this coming season!
The Story revolves around Narumi Fujishima an ordinary high school boy who remain isolated from his fellow classmates.One afternoon fellow classmate Ayaka Shinozaki invites Narumi to join the gardening club and introduces him a reclusive detective named Alice. Alice hires Narumi as an assistant and put him to work solving the strange mysteries of Angel fix and illegal drug. Little does he know it could put him and Ayaka in serious trouble.
Looks like I’ll have a lot of stuff to do for this upcoming season. 3 more confirmed series that I need to re-encode. All of them will be provided in miniHD.
1. Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan Season 2 (Nurarihyon no Mago ~Sennen Makyō~) – Haha, another Shueisha’s Shounen Jump anime adaptation that I need to do other than Gintama. Sequel to the previous season of Nura. (Premiere date: 03/07/11)

2. Ikoku Meiro no Croisée – I found out that this manga is created by Hinata Takeda, whom also illustrated the character for the Gosick light novel, by looking at the setting of the manga which is almost identical to the novel. The story takes place in the second half of the 19th century, as Japanese culture gains popularity in the West. (Premiere date: 03/07/11)
