We Need Your DVDs & Blurays!
Have you ever wondered how Saizen manages to maintain such high quality in everything it does? Not just the translation, editing and typesetting, but also the marvellous encodes our encoders pump out on a regular basis – well, it doesn’t just happen by accident. We have some very skilled people working on our subs for you to enjoy, but there are, naturally, issues with trying to maintain such a high level of quality. No matter how good the encoder, they can only wow us with their wizardry if they have a good source to work with.
Without getting into the nitty gritty of encoding (which I only have a vague idea about at best!), the best sources of raw video we use are in the form of DVDISOs (for DVDs) and BDMVs (for Blurays). This does leave us in a bit of a dilemma when the only raws available for some of the older shows we do are, by our standards, subpar.
This is where you guys come in. If you have any of the following shows on DVDs/Blurays or know where to find links to the DVDISOs/BDMVs, we would be interested in having these video sources, because A) it’s a lot easier/cheaper than buying our own and B) it makes it a lot easier to get a team interested in a new project if we have a suitable video source available.
The DVDISOs/BDMVs we’re currently trying to track down:
- B.B (Burning Blood)
- Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san OVA
- Layton’s Mystery Detective Agency
Please note, only DVDISOs and BDMVs will be considered. If the format is any different, we are unlikely to accept it. If you have the DVDs/Blurays in question, please gatecrash #saizen on the Rizon IRC network so that we can use it to stick some awesome English subs on them. They must all contain Japanese Audio and where possible, be free of any hardsubbed non-Japanese typesetting (If the source is good or the only one available due to all others going out of print, we may overlook this). We are also looking for COMPLETE SERIES unless vol. numbers are specifically stated. We can’t start a series with only the first volume of DVDs after all!
DISCLAIMER: HAVING THE RAWS ISN’T AN INDICATION THAT WE WILL DEFINITIVELY WORK ON A SHOW. PLEASE DON’T BEG US TO DO ANY SHOW JUST BECAUSE YOU’VE PRODUCED THE ISOs/BDMVs (IT IS, HOWEVER, MORE LIKELY THAT WE WILL PICK UP THE SHOW IF WE HAVE GOOD SOURCES, SO TAKE THAT AS AN INCENTIVE TO HELP US OUT :D)
So get rooting through those DVD and Bluray collections ^__^
