FAQ

GENERAL

Q: Why the title of some releases are not in English?

A: Because since it doesn’t exist an official name in English, and to maintain the fidelity to the original naming, the rōmaji naming will be used in those cases there’s only a Japanese naming for the releases. It’s important to understand that some common structures in titles and some other titles in their entirety will still be translated to english in order to make it easier to understand or just because the community accepted/decided this translation.

Q: Where do you get your releases?

A: At the end of each post I explain in detail the source of everything.

Q: What’s the format and structure of your uploads?

A: In each section of this page I explain more throughly how I structure my uploads.

Q: What’s this checksum file I find sometimes, and what’s its purpose?

A: Every file has a SHA o CRC number that identifies them, which it’s unique to each file, and even the tiniest change to them will modify those values. Then, in order to ensure that the download has been completed succesfully, this file will check that.

Q: How shall I proceed once I completed a download?

A: It’s really simple, if the file is compressed, just download WinRAR (version 5.0 at least), and then, even though it’s not mandatory, in order to compare the checksums obtained in the download with the ones intended, HashCheck will do the job.

Q: Why a lot of your releases don’t include scans when they are supposed to be? Where are they?

A: If they are not uploaded, the reason is very simple: they are still to be done. That’s because doing them takes a lot of time, and thus, to avoid not releasing what’s already done just because of the scans, I upload the content in itself for the time being.

Q: Why are you slow with your releases?

A: Quality over quantity. If you want information on some specific release you are interested into and why I haven’t uploaded it yet, contact me.

IMAGES

Q: In which format do you organize your uploads?

A: All the images are uploaded individually, without any kind of lossy compression whatsoever, so you can have a preview of the photos and you can actually download which photos you are interested into. The checksum file will be only included in those cases the posts won’t be updated over time. For what matters in terms of the sheer quality of the photos, since there’s not standard for them, the only thing I can reassure is that they are uploaded in the best quality possible.

MUSIC

Q: Why can’t I find the song the same way it sounds in the anime?

A: The reasoning is very simple, the song you hear in the anime is the often called “TV Size” version of the song, and sometimes these versions of the songs are never officially released, and thus, nearly impossible to get them.

Q: In which way do you organize your uploads?

A: As for the official uploads, each disc will be separated in an individual RAR file with these files: a FLAC for each song and a LOG file (to compare the quality of the rip with the original source). As for DVDs goes, they are stored in an ISO file and compressed in a RAR file. Blu-rays are simply stored in a BDMV folder and also compressed in a RAR file. These releases also include the scans of their cases done at 600 dpi in TIFF with LZW compression in a separated RAR file. As for digital downloads, everything will be organized the same way as CDs but without the LOG file and compressed in a RAR file. Unofficial uploads will be uploaded individually and also protected with a RAR file.

Q: Why the naming of the tracks sometimes are weird and nonsensical?

A: To put in a few words, I follow the exact structure the original track naming has, I prioritize way more archiving rather than comodity.

MOVIES

Q: In which format do you organize your uploads?

A: As for DVDs goes, they are stored in an ISO file and compressed in a RAR file. Blurays are simply stored in a BDMV folder and also compressed in a RAR file. These releases also include the scans of their cases done at 600 dpi in TIFF with LZW compression in a separated RAR file. Unofficial versions will be included in MKV file and compressed in RAR.

As time goes by, if more questions arise, I will update this page with the respective answers if the questions are interesting enough. If you still have any question, feel free to ask me anything in the respective post with a comment, or through the Discord server.
