  1. So how long till there are delays or you drop it ?
    I would say after 3 Episodes !

    And what is this ?
    “Also, this release marks the switch from 10-bit H.264 to 10-bit H.265 here at Underwater, so make sure your playback setup is up to date in case you’re having issues.”

    Please tell me how I can watch this with the latest versions of MPC-HC, LAV-Filters, madVR and xy-VSFilters

  2. Great to have the JP honorifics sub track but couldn’t you have used Ajin on that track instead of Demi-human?

    Or am I just being picky?

    • Daiz is in charge of the weeb track, and I have nothing to do with it. If it were up to me, there wouldn’t even be an honorifics track.

      • “If it were up to me, there wouldn’t even be an honorifics track.”
        Sounds like we can’t expect anything other than dumbed down subs from now on. Half the joy of watching any foreign language film or animation is learning cultural differences and for a lot of people, anime is their first taste of this.

        What you refer to derogatorily as weeb is for me and many others part of that learning process.

        I’m more surprised at Underwater for using the clumsy soundind demi-human but unfortunately they don’t appear to have a comment section.

        Thanks for taking the time to reply.

        • You do know ajin literally means demi-human, right? If demi-human sounds “clumsy” in english, ajin sounds clumsy in japanese. In any case, we’re not leaving random words untranslated.

          • If Ajin didn’t literally mean demi-human then it would be a bad translation full stop.

            I know there’s a very experienced team working on this and in the end all decisions are yours to make.

            I will continue (at least for the next few episodes) to watch as many different releases as possible of what looks like a very promising series then make my decision as to which group I’ll stick with and which I’ll drop.
