So here’s my new project, now we get to see Kana-chan in 10-bit! I had to do this now because I absolutely love this series.
It’s my first encode from a Blu-ray source and it proved to be surprisingly easier than encoding from a DVD, since I don’t need to go through the hassle of cutting and syncing audio and video over and over. As usual, this is 10-bit H.264 encoding. 720p only as it’s upscale (it looks REALLY good on my TV, though). Japanese audio is FLAC and I’ve also included a lossy encode of the English dub. I apologize to dub fans, but I can’t justify 300 MB for an English lossless track. If there’s a demand for it, I will release it separately.
As for the subs, I extracted them from the BDMV, did some editing and corrected a few errors. Unlike Koukaku no Regios, this uses styled ASS subs. There’s only so much I can do on Aegisub, so don’t expect fancy typesetting or karaoke effects. Regardless, I tried my best and think it turned out pretty well.
Enough of talking, please download the episode and keep giving me your feedback so I can make my releases better! Don’t forget to join #Hitori-Anime@irc.rizon.net.
You can see more details of this release on the project page. Regios 14 is done and will be released later.
I know some may be wondering how my release of Regios compares to the HDTV release by Ayako or Taka, and sukanime mentioned how he thought the TV version was much better than mine. While I do respect his opinion, I thought I would compare both versions with a few screenshots. So just see for yourself which one you like better and go for it! 😉

I intentionally resized my release to 720p for comparing purposes, but of course the encode is actually 480p, given the DVD Source. IMHO the DVD isn’t flawless, as well as my encode isn’t, but I do believe it’s an upgrade over the TV release. Please feel free to disagree with me, though!
Oh, and I’m done with episode 13 for a long time now, don’t even know why I haven’t released it yet!
Episode 12 is out now! I’m almost done with episode 13 and episode 14 is currently being encoded.
Hope you guys like my release. This show has proven to be very enjoyable and I do think this is a quality encode.
Well, I did hear some complaints over the VobSubs I’m using on this release. While I personally have NO PROBLEM with them, I though I would play with Aegisub a little. The result was this creditless ending:
This is the 6th creditless ending included on the DVD. I will release all of them with styled subs once the final batch is out. I guess this is just what you’d call my guinea pig for now. Of course, this is the best I can do with ASS subs right now, and can’t bring you flashy karaoke effects or such.
This doesn’t mean I’m dropping the VobSubs, I will just decide on which subs to use for a project on a case by case basis.
