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.

Enjoy.

    Woot!

    I’m always happy to get a quality release, but I’m a little happier as long as it’s out before I have to go to work again (Monday) so it’s all good.

    Thanks. You can make the episodes 600 MB….I still will get them. Size should not be an issue for good quality.

  6. Awesome, look forward to watching it 😀

    And srsly, people need to stop bitching about subs taking too long. If you want em faster, learn Japanese!

  7. OH~?

    More Chaos Head?

    NICE!!!!

    By the way, why was the karaoke’s color changed from green to blue?

    We change the color every episode.

    Those who don’t want to wait should just get the speed subs. I’m happy to wait a couple more days for high quality.

    I don’t really mind waiting a bit for your releases, to be honest. I’m just glad you’re releasing a quality sub, making it worth the wait.

    As long as you’re subbing Chaos;Head, I’ll wait however long I need to. ^^ I’m sure the people complaining are in the minority but since they whine so loudly and say such stupid thing, they stick out more.

    Minor correction since I’m an obsessive perfectionist: “but, since they whine so loudly and say such stupid things, they stick out more.”

    thanks so much! don’t know what to say about complainers; maybe the suspense is just too much — chaoshead has been an exciting series so far!

    “I can’t believe some people are actually disappointed that Earl and Fairy gets released before Chaos;Head.”

    Just ignore those idiots. I and everyone coming here should appreciate the fact that you guys are subbing these shows for our enjoyment for free.
    1) Time and effort
    2) Timely releases
    3) Space and bandwidth to distribute
    4) Quality releases/translations

    I’d gladly donate, but I remember your groups stance on money for fansubs.
    Love your work and ignore those who don’t appreciate.

    Well, regarding the donations, we might actually need a little bit this month to help cover the server costs. Our distro pay out of their own pockets and they’re running out of money. The server isn’t too expensive though. Only 55 euros. We’ll ask for help from you guys if we need it.

    Thanks for the new release, doesn’t really matter to me that Earl and Fairy is released sooner. Better quality than time.

    Thanks

    you could take months (but please don’t) and I’d still wait for it!!! THANK YOU, I’m so excited, its filling my empty void now that I don’t have higurashi anymore.

    Thanks for the awesome release. I was just thinking though, is there any special reason why only RtV is coming with ordered chapters ’cause I think that it is a great feature but I can see why some people dislike the fact that not all players support it. Not that Chaos head really needs the extra bitrate lol.

    Ooh, I got mad google skills.. it’s for sale on http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=FVCG-1008 :)

    It’s spelled Fantasm instead of Phantasm making it hard to find..

    I have no problem with waiting for good a good release. Thanks for the great work. But I noticed a little mistake at the end of the episode. There’s always this “Do you want to save?” message. I can read a bit japanese and I’m sure that there’s written “Kono Episoodo wo sebu suru”. So shouldn’t it be “Do you want to save this Episode?” ?

    You probably know this now but anyway, the song for F.D.D came out yesterday and the lyrics booklet say “Filthy Defiler Disgrace” rather than what you have now. Hope you change it in future eps. :) Love your releases.

  38. Don’t mind those people. You guys do a wonderful job every one, with every series. You’re doing it for us fans, so we’ve to put our share on this and be patient.

    Please keep doing your excellent job.
