    recently i have been keeping up with some of the newer animes...

    my normals are:
    naruto \ bleach \ one piece \ fairy tail

    I have added:
    Kore wa Zombie desu ka
    dragon Crisis
    Freezing - this has to be the best new anime series i have seen in a while (i could do with out the nudity..)

    I dropped Beelzebub (too much kiddie porn)


    now i am being bugged by a friend to watch gitama. I have watched the first 3 or 4 episodes.. does the anime pickup and get better?

    Gintama is awesome. watch it.
    It should get better after the character introductions are done.

    i assume for your ipod? use handbrake and the apple presets, .mp4 can handle H264 video with one audio and subtitle stream. just pick the audio you want.

    i've used handbrake in the past for it with no problems as well, and it doesnt require you to set your haali splitter (and therefore your playback defaults for all your media players) to the settings you want output.

    you are right about my method not working well with styled subs, but shit - on such a small screen is it that neccesary?

    Even on the small iPhone/iPod screens, it makes a difference in watching. Styled subs that are converted to regular text look especially bad, and have all kinds of weird issues sometimes.

    It's worth doing it my way.

    i dont own an ipod so i've not had a chance to do extensive testing, i've just done it for others before and they had no complaints with my method.


    i wonder if handbrake can hardsub...


    edit: yep theres a 'burn in' option that may well do just that.

    Burn in on handbrake doesn't do styling. Gives the same issues.

    Im a aware of that, also know sometime this year awesome studio 4c will bring a new Berserk work...

    There's 2 different works, you should watch the 13 ep ova first, the tv is not a direct sequel and changes many of the events that took place in the ova, but develops the story further and ads a few characters more...
    Its like watching the lord of the ring...

    I've started a trial run for the video conversion. Hopefully it works. Does the GPU transcoding for mediacoder only work with CUDA?

    Yah. Record of Lodoss War, the 13 ep OVA, is what I'm downloading.

    Ahh, Magic: The Gathering! Soo much memories back then, favourite block is still the horribly broken Mirrodin: even a poor guy like me can afford a deck of unrivalled speed and ferocity.

    Yes. I haven't really seen any GPU transcoders that use anything different. The ATI one sucks balls. Has terrible quality.

    Watched "The girl who leapt throught time" and enjoyed thuroughly. A great movie, definately in my top five. The plot is interesting - not the usual shounen "beat the opponent only to find a new one". Next up is Summer Wars, which should be good as the director is the same.

    Also got to know some of Studio Ghibli movies. I especially enjoyed My Neighbour Totoro and Princess Mononoke. Grave of the fireflies on the other hand was a disappointment. It has great reviews but I found it boring and unappealing.

    Thats a rare case, because the movie is heartbreaking...
    I would recomend you to keep watching ghibli movies, like chiiro, laputa, Howl, Nausicaa, porco rosso and others...

    There's another director worth checking out, he is Makoto shinkai, only his movies can rival Miyasaki's...

    And there's the recent welcome to space from any of them but still fascinating...

    What did i miss??

    Just finished watching Berserk, i have to say it was an awesome anime, wont even complain about animation because it was perfect for the job and gives it a "classic" feel, just like lodoss...
    I think Griffith's fall was predictable, Guts was the strong main pillar supporting his weight, and when that support was removed he fell...
    Overall the ending wasn't bad, just needed another episode to explain what happened next before reaching the starting point...

    Its probably time for me to change my Avatar, what should I change it to? Or shall I keep it like that, for easier troll identification?
