Note, though they literally say ‘Southern Island’ and not ‘Tropical Island’, I still used tropical regardless, even though it’s not very accurate. The island is south relative to Japan’s main island, but still in the northern hemisphere. So, from an English perspective, southern island doesn’t make too much sense. But, at the same time, it can’t be called tropical as it’s past the Tropic of Cancer. But, whatever, it’s a sunny and hot island. That’s all you need to know.

And with this, we complete our weekend releases. I think I’ve just accepted the fact that Rosario is going to take a long time due to staff schedules. The members in both groups that are working on this show just have some irreconcilable scheduling conflicts that we can’t really do anything about.
And some people have been asking why our file size went up, even after ordered chapters was implemented. Normally, ordered chapters is supposed to result in decreased file size. However, the real purpose of ordered chapters is for higher video quality, not decreased file size. Depending on how much more bitrate the actual episode requires, the file size can actually go up, as it did in our case.

Yes, we know we said that Chaos;Head is our highest priority project of the season. That doesn’t mean we can churn it out in under 24 hours. There are many factors which make it impossible to get it out that quickly. But, we try to get everything as correct as possible, including obtaining the best possible raws and researching the special terms used in Chaos;Head.
I can’t believe some people are actually disappointed that Earl and Fairy gets released before Chaos;Head. Not like I can make Chaos;Head air earlier than Fairy. I’m sorry, but we have no such powers as to change broadcast times. If you want Chaos;Head faster, contact the Madhouse studio and extort them for the episodes.
Anyways, we made some encoding changes to episode 03. There were many dark scenes so some grain was applied there to make it more aesthetically pleasing. The filesize for the h264 for this episode is 400MB and the xvid 233MB. However, please note that Chaos;Head is 27 mins per episode, which is about 2 or 3 minutes longer than standard.

As mentioned before, we’re doing One Outs as an additional project to fill in the fansubbing gaps. And, just as we announced, someone else releases. How nice of them. Either way, we’ll do this project in our spare time, so no promises on timely releases or whatever. Though, we are awfully slow on Rosario, aren’t we? Oh, well…
Available in two flavours as usual, h264 720p at 333MB and XviD 396p at 233MB. The h264 version is entirely softsubbed, including the typesetting and karaoke. If you can’t see the Japanese fonts in the ending song, that just means you don’t have Asian fonts installed. This is also a minimum effort project, so don’t expect anything fancy or whatever in it.
Anyway, please enjoy One Outs. If you enjoyed Akagi and Kaiji, you’ll probably enjoy this too.

And another episode of Lydia goodness.
Please note that the spelling of ‘spunkie’ has been updated in this episode. I should have known better than to follow that Engrish piece of paper in episode 02.
Whatever it is, if you want to know more about fairy folklore or whatever, you can always search up stuff like pixie, sprite, merrow, Unseelie Court, Green Man(though Lydia said leaf man, but whatever), etc. We’re providing subs, not an encyclopaedia, so we won’t put TL notes of such stuff.

I’m happy to announce that we will be picking up One Outs. I’m a big baseball fan so I was hoping that Triad would have picked this series up by now. Unfortunately, it looks like they’re aren’t, so we decided to pick it up as a side project. I assume most people in fansubbing aren’t familiar with baseball at all, so this show deserves to have someone who actually knows the subject matter.
Now let me make a few things clear to you since this is a side project.
- There is no timeline for releases. We will release whenever we have time to work on the show. Our other weekly shows have priority.
- We will make no promise to finish the series. That’s not to say that we don’t plan on doing it completely, but if it becomes too much of a burden, we will let you know that we’re dropping it. We’re not gonna suddenly stop releasing and keep you guys wondering.
Anyway, expect to see episode 1 in the upcoming few days. I don’t know if we’ll do the karaoke. The OP is in English, and the ED is a bit hard to hear. We might just wait for the official lyrics. I guess you’ll find out when we release episode 1.
As for our other shows…
- Rosario 03 – We’re really slowpoking this one. The replacement translator was a lazy bum and didn’t finish it until two days ago. Now we’re just waiting on the translation checker to finish his work. I’m hoping it’s out by the weekend. Episode 04 will go back to the old system of two translators since they aren’t lazy.
- Chaos;Head 03 – Airs today and we’ll get started ASAP. This is our highest priority show of the season.
- Earl and Fairy 03 – This one is at editing. I’m also hoping for a weekend release.
- Telepathy Shoujo Ran 17 – Currently in translation stage.
here’s Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu R2J DVDs, Episodes 01 and 02. I will release it every month with 2 episodes per batch.
It uses Ordered Chapters so keep the files in one folder to be able to see the OP/ED.

Newer versions of mplayer should also support ordered chapters, VLC doesn’t, blame the programmers for not implementing real playback (like Full MKV support and .ass support).

Here is Chaos;Head 02. We had a lot of encoding and typesetting issues that delayed this, as well as our other two shows. And just as a reminder, we will also be releasing a v2 of Chaos;Head 01 with a few minor changes and fixes based upon viewer feedback.
Changed stuffs for ep1v2:
We’re v2ing due to consistency for later episodes, the main changes you should notice from now on are:
Ensuu is not EMS (the abbreviation of the game in English), nor Ensue (which was what the games translators decided to translate it to, they thought it was an English word D:), but rather it’s just a simple abbreviation of the romanized version of the name of the game Empire Sweeper Online. The extra ‘u’ is added because the Japanese has a habit of abbreviating things to four syllables. Since EMS is causing confusion, we’re just going to put Empire Sweeper as a full reference.
E n su u = Enpaia Suuipaa Onrain + u (to complete the 4 syllables habit)
Secondly, the infamous line sono me dare no me, we translated it to “Those eyes… whose eyes are they” while the game translators translated it to “Whose eyes are those eyes”. Since both of them sound fairly awkward, we decided to go with “Whose eyes are those”.
Finally, there are some minor tweaks in the v2, like the change of raw to a transport stream, fixing some typesetting, but they are not as important as the two mentioned above.
