Cardfight Vanguard – Asia Circuit Hen – Episode 2

Still no release pic because I’m too lazy.

This time, we actually have our joint name on the file. Hooray!

This episode, Aichi faces off with Kai, both of them using their changed decks. It’s super cool and super mysterious! And at the end, we find a competition is starting, where Team Q4 received an invitation!

Cardfight Vanguard – Asia Circuit Hen – Episode 1

No, this is not a joke.

Two seasons back, we attempted to joint with another group. They would provide the translation and the encodes, and we would do the timing, typesetting, and editing. It was a really nice idea, but we couldn’t find a show that was undersubbed enough to make the joint worthwhile.

Until now.

I loved the first season of Cardfight Vanguard. Yes, all 65 episodes. So you can imagine my disappointment when Crunchyroll did not begin streaming the second season, Asia Circuit Chapter. I was completely distraught. This show had been part of my weekly routine for over a year. Whatever would I do without it?

Sub it, of course!

I convinced the wonderful people at Nyancat to translate the show, and here we are now. Due to it being more of a kid’s show, caps aren’t as easy to come across, which is why we’re starting a bit late. However, we have a capper getting this show for us, so hopefully this will be a success!

Nisemonogatari Status and Next Season Pre-Planning

Cloche Leythal Pastalia
Because after two years of procrastination, I have finally achieved every possible ending in the Ar tonelico trilogy.

So yeah. Hi. How have all of you patient leechers been?

Nisemonogatari – 07

Delays this week were because Crunchyroll had a 13 hour delay to start with. That, combined with a wealth of signs they missed and the like meant that we had a lot to catch up on. But it’s here, finally!

The ED should no longer lag. I changed the font for a third time. It’s acting a little weird at times, but at least it’s not lagging.

Shini Edit: In reference to the poll on the left, I will leave it up, but its clear that people prefer the naming as Hi10p. Therefore all my releases will be labeled as such. The other encoder for this show (SoupRKnowva) prefers 10bit thus we have come to an arrangement. Any encodes of his using Hi10 encoding will be labeled as 10bit, mine as Hi10p. This….will not clear up any confusion whatsoever, so i’ll just shrug and carry on. In the meantime, enjoy more Nisemonogatari:

Nisemonogatari – 03


And we’re even quicker this week! We didn’t have any hang-ups like last week, so we were able to get this out at a decent time. I hope we can manage this every week! Though part of the speed is that we didn’t have to k-time a new OP/ED, just restyle it, so…

I’d like to thank everyone for their helpful comments both here and on IRC. The typesetting for this show is quite intense (total script length this week is 1,115 lines), and I’m learning new things each week. My typesetting is all self-taught, so it’s all really appreciated. I hope this episode is even better than the past two for all of you! Enjoy!

Special thanks to KyonyUU for translating one sign for us. Special thanks to Dark_Sage for doing a great edit post about this ep and putting a script on, but I don’t think we actually used it because we had already TLC’d by the time he put it up. :-P

Edit: Mirrors are now correct. FileSonic links (if included) are no longer available. Rapidshare and FileJungle appear to be ok atm, however should the trend continue, we will no longer offer Direct Downloads. It will be .torrent only. All our files, will of course, still be available on our XDCC bots in the #Shini-subs IRC channel.

Review of the Kalafina Intermediate/Hard Piano Book

Kalfina piano book cover

BECAUSE NISE IS NOT AT ME YET AND I’M BORED. (Also, Shini has no idea I’m writing this.)

I received this piano book in the mail two weeks ago, and I’ve spent upwards of an hour a day playing through the songs. They vary from amazingly done (Haru wa Ougon no Yume no Naka) to wtf were they thinking (ARIA).

I wanted to find some Youtube videos to link so you could hear or watch someone play the songs, but no one seems to have made any. I’ll have to do so when I’ve had more than two weeks of practise.

Song by song review after the cut.

Nisemonogatari – 01


Okay, so I know we haven’t finished… much of anything yet. However, be assured that Sacred Seven batches are on their way! (Release by the end of the week or I put my iPhone in a blender.) As for our fall shows… Um, while I hope we finish them, a lot of great groups have been subbing all four, so they’re on low priority.

Unlike Nisemonogatari.

The story of how we came to sub Nisemonogatari is a fun one. I screamed into the staff channel “OMFG I WANNA TS NISEMONOGATARI!” nearly every hour. Then, UTW dropped it. After that, I’m chilling in Dark_Sage’s bed at 2am when I get a text message: “We have a team for Nisemonogatari. Still up for TS?” I reply, “FUCK YES now let me sleep.”

And there you have it.

Shini Edit: I would just like to add, this season will most likely be the last season for AIRING 480p. We will continue to do 480 for BD’s, but will most likely drop 480 for airing after this season……unless i get a huge amount of comments/e-mails telling me not to. We will also begin Hi10p this season, for both BD’s and Airing. However, I will not be re-doing any previous projects in Hi10, again unless i get tons of emails/comments to say otherwise.

Site Issues

A crying loli? Shinisaki would approve.

Uh, as you can see, our site died. Our ftp also died, and so did my computer. As I was typesetting Nisemonogatari, I got a blue screen and everything died at once. We’re working on resolving these issues, and we still hope to get Nisemonogatari out today. I hope these issues don’t happen every week.

So yeah. Our last backup was in August because Shinisaki is lazy. All of the more recent posts and comments are completely gone. Our tracker is working properly, so all of the releases and torrents are still working as expected. If you’re looking for anything we’ve released, please go here and grab it.

Sorry about all of this. We’ll post again when things are fixed completely (if we can get it back to normal) and also when we release Nisemonogatari. As for me, I’m going to buy a new laptop sometime today or tomorrow.

Caly – Part 7

Song Number 7 – Michiyuki (Loveless)



So as you can see, there’s not a picture to go with this song. That’s because Loveless is a shounen-ai anime, and I don’t think Shini wants random half-undressed bishounen all over his site. Or something like that.

Anyway, I have decided to use this post to describe a bit about myself, my singing history, and my musical taste.

As you know, I’m Calyrica. I’ve been singing all 22 years of my life. However, I didn’t start out as the soprano that you hear in these weekly songs. Until I trained myself in high school, I was always placed as an alto in solos and choirs, which is the lowest of the female voice ranges. Even though I worked so hard to improve my range and tone, I was never taken seriously by my supervisors. This ruined my passion for music for many years, and instead of majoring in music at university as I had planned for over twelve years, I rashly changed my mind to go towards computer engineering, regretting it every day. In singing for all of you, I have a bit of that back again, and it makes me extremely happy to see all of you enjoying my music.

I listen mostly to two main genres: atmospheric J-Pop and orchestrated heavy metal. My favourite Japanese artists are Kajiura Yuki (and her projects, FictionJunction and Kalafina), KOKIA, Ishikawa Chiaki, Shikata Akiko, Yousei Teikoku, and OLIVIA.  My favourite metal bands are After Forever, Epica, Nightwish (not with their new vocalist, though), Therion, and Within Temptation.

Caly – Part 5


For those of you who are new to the site due to our recent releases, every Thursday night or Friday morning, Shinisaki absolutely insists on a certain feature, which is a post showing off my singing to the world. If I were tsundere, I’d say: “I-It’s not like I want you to listen to it or anything.” But I’m a yandere, so I’ll just pick the song, make the post, and let him finish it.

Song Number 5 – Parallel Hearts (Pandora Hearts)
