New IRC Channel

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009 by Drazic

Our IRC Channel can now be found on irc.rizon.net. Since nobody seemed to care about the old irc channel that was on irc.infi.org (Which had a different name than the group too since it was made before the group started) I decided to move the channel to rizon. The new channel is:

#HaroRangers @ irc.rizon.net

There’s a XDCC bot that currently has most of our releases allready (let me know if you want something added). This bot will also have future releases slightly earlier than the normal torrent release and you’ll be able to get them faster there. The XDCC bot is there thanks to twilightNoir/twilightBlanc. So be sure to thank him if he ever pops up in the channel again!

Use this if you dont have an IRC client. You cant download from the XDCC bot with this so getting a proper client is better. (Windows, Mac, Linux/BSD)

MKV Test Release

Monday, July 20th, 2009 by Drazic

It’s 2009, we’ve got awesome stuff like MKV and embedded subs and stuff for a while now. So why are we still doing MP4 hardsubs? I couldn’t find a good answer which is why we’re going to slowly change our encoding from mp4 hardsubs to MKV embedded softsubs.

Current encoding decisions were made when MKV+embedded softsub support was still very bad on operating systems that aren’t Windows. I’m using Mac OS X myself and at the time I founded HR the only way to play MKV+embedded softsubs on there was with VLC. Which was horrible. It was obvious that I couldn’t even consider using MKV back then because of that. But now there are programs like Perian for Quicktime, Mplayer extended and the newer updates of VLC Player which make sure that they work just as fine as on Windows.  So while I feel that there was a good reason to do MP4 hardsubs when we started out, there are no longer any reasons to not support MKV.

Current hardsubbed projects will stay hardsubbed for consistency but any new project we start will be encoded in MKV+embedded softsubs. We’ll also be doing seperate softsubs for Jikou Keisatsu 2 because of the lack of HD encodes of that series (only for ep 6-9, you can find softsubs for 1-5 at d-addicts). Karaoke PVs will stay hardsubbed. We haven’t decided yet wether that will remain as  MP4 hardsubs or will become MKV hardsubs.

To show how this will work we’re going to do a re-release of the Perfume talk segments at Hey!x3 we did in MKV with embedded softsubs. For now this will only be the HD version but if there’s enough requests for an SD version encoded like that we’ll do that too. Love the world is going to be released first and then Baby cruising love will be done sometimes after that.

Yousei Teikoku – Wahrheit PV Release

Thursday, July 16th, 2009 by kazetrigger

Well, as I said before, there would be more translations by me. This one is by a duo I’m quite fond of, so I hope you enjoy it as well. However, this was a slightly difficult translation and I have a few notes here to explain why I translated this PV the way I did.

NOTE: Wahrheit is German for “truth.” “Eine Krone” means “one crown,” possibly a reference to the Crown of Thorns placed on Jesus’ head at his Crucifixion.

– “Toki” actually refers to time, but the character used is read as “koku” which means Ke. A Ke is a scratch or marking that was used to measure 15 minute intervals. This would be used to tell anyone how much time had passed. Since these markings were most likely made on the ground or on stone sundials in antiquity, I decided to translate “toki” as “the earth” rather than “time”. Other references to time are translated as “when” according to context. However, to also give a sense of staining “time,” I chose “earth” as it could also be read as meaning “stained the earth a deep red.” (Earth, the planet, the course of history(i.e. Time)).”

– Believing this song to be an allusion to Jesus’ crucifixion, I chose language suited to the topic, even if the original Japanese is more poetic. Sometimes a literal translation is just nonsensical when put into English.

– Although “daiza” means “pedestal”, my research into the word suggests that the Japanese notion is closer to that of “tomb.” However, for consistency and grammar, I left both instances as “pedestal,” but I believe the first instance to be closer to “tomb” while the second is closer to “pedestal” as in “a bed-like support for a body within a tomb”.

– “ao” usually means blue, but a “blue pedestal” made me think of a stony color, which made me think of a stone pedestal, which Jesus’ tomb would have been carved out of.

Although there are other possible interpretations, I feel my less literal approach is more fitting to the style of the song and video.

Enjoy.

Kokuhaku DVD re-release

Sunday, July 5th, 2009 by Drazic

Here’s a new version of Kokuhaku using the dvd raw this time. Since the original release of this single didnt come with the PV on the dvd i assumed it never got released on dvd. But it seems they released a PV dvd while i was ignoring Idoling and that’s where this is from. Anyway, it’s way better looking and that’s all that matters.
