Flying Witch – 01

This season, it’s comfy healing time.

Want to learn some fansubbing magic? Grab your broom and fly on over. We’re in need of KFXers, Translators, and Translation Checkers as well as skilled editors, timers and typesetters. Head over to our recruitment page to get started.


The show seems to be set around the Aomori Prefecture, an area famous for its apples.

For example, compare the Torii Gate from the OP to the real one:

Nao’s Liquor store:

And the nice view of Mount Iwaki from the bus:

Even a Mister Donut! (Sorry, you need to squint for this one, there’s not a lot of photos from inside AEON Town)

Why not take a street view tour of the town while you’re downloading the show? You might spot some other interesting landmarks. Hirosaki station, for example, is a short wander off to the east.

  • damndaniel

    Will you guys release a 720p version? If not I’ll just stick with HS.

  • Saeval

    I think we won’t.
    Just curious by the way, what’s wrong exactly with 1080p stuff?

    • damndaniel

      Nothing really, just used to 720p stuff.

      • Almost every anime in recent times is mastered significantly above 720p. You’re missing out on a lot of details by only downloading 720p when higher resolution options are available.

        • You the second fansub group that do the same and ask the same question,

          The main difference is the space, 1080p animes not always worth the 1080p and not all of them have very noticeable different for people who watch it in 22′-24′ monitors, place don’t tell me you also going to ditch 720p… our HDD not grow on trees you know… and if it not worth new one it just like you all spit in our face…

          For short: more options are always better! even if it not bother you it may bother someone else

          • I’m right there with you bud, I usually go for 720p because of bandwidth concerns. In this case however, the 1080p version is about the same size as most 720ps. So you won’t be consuming any more space than usual.

          • name

            >The main difference is the space, 1080p animes not always worth the 1080p and not all of them have very noticeable different for people who watch it in 22′-24′ monitors, place don’t tell me you also going to ditch 720p… our HDD not grow on trees you know… and if it not worth new one it just like you all spit in our face…

            It’s only 350 MB. Some 720p episodes are larger.

          • monstervong

            Quite your bitching. They’re doing this for free and only take donations whenever they need it. HDD’s are cheap nowadays. If you can’t handle it then get HS releases which are inferior to fansub groups. I’d take a fansub 720 over a HS 1080 any day. Besides it’s not like this 1080 is big, HS is about 560MB.

          • Progeusz

            Are you a caveman? 720p has been a standard for ~8 years. 2TB HDD is $80. You can spend this much every two or three years.
            You call providing the best possible quality “spitting in the face”? There should be some limits.

          • Horrible subs 720 version : 312.7 MiB
            Our 1080 version : 346 MiB

            Shit man, a whole extra 34 MiB, how ever will you manage?

    • Ealdwulf

      For me it’s actually a multitude of concerns. A big one is filesize on 1080 tends to be much larger. Another big concern for me is that my monitor is only a 1440×900, 1080 is too big for it so gets downsized anyway, and trying to play a 1080 video always causes me problems including lock ups. If I could afford a newer system and monitor that would play 1080 I might get that.

      But the other issue? My vision is not good enough to be able to see the difference between a 720 and 1080. so 720 just makes more sense to me

      • monstervong

        You will notice the difference between 1080 and 720 after a while. Watch a series in 1080 then try watching it in 720, 720 was noticable more blurry for me but this is on a 1920×1080 55″ tv.

        You cannot blame fansubbers for their encode choices. If you cannot afford to watch in 1080 then that’s your problem, get with the times.

      • Progeusz

        Any shitty PC can run 1080p smoothly. 1080p screens are cheap, you can get one for less than $100. Everything you say are just weak excuses. If you cared about quality (I assume someone willing to wait for DDY version instead of going with HS does care about quality), you would have those long ago. K-ON! Movie came out on BDs in 2012, FOUR years ago and it was already native 1080p. Haiyore W (yes, TV series from 2013) was 1080p as well. Many series are ~900p, often with parts like opening at 1080p (especially KyoAni).

        You should have 1080p screen for stuff like internet browsing or writing documents anyway, much more space to work with.

      • Ealdwulf

        I agree completely that I _should_ have the capability of watching 1080. But not everyone can afford to put out the funds to be able to upgrade their system when it has gone past its end of life. Some of us live on a fixed income and pay child support on top of that. Makes getting the niceties a luxury.

        As for complaining, I’m not doing that at all. Saeval asked a question and I responded with why 1080 doesn’t work for me. If this is not going to be done in 720, then I will either locate another quality source in 720 or do without this one. I try to avoid HS unless no one else is putting out something that I want to see.

    • anon

      For many, the limited improvements in visual quality between 720p and 1080p (that may be barely noticeable or unnoticeable in actual viewing conditions) are not worth the trade off of increase processing power required to run the file and larger file size. Though the latter of those concerns is not really an issue for this episode considering it is only 350MB. I’ve recently been grabbing 1080p releases of shows that are mastered above 720p because those concerns aren’t much of an issue for me right now and I feel my viewing environment is good enough to benefit from the increase in resolution, but not too long ago I was avoiding all 1080p releases simply because I didn’t have a screen that could benefit from a 1080p release.

  • rosanjo9

    Thanks Guys :D

  • flameboi

    >Junketsu no Maria
    Nice easter egg(?)! Thanks for the 1080p encode.

  • kal

    Was gonna complain about 1080p only but dat size.
    Curious what size a 720p would be…

  • Seem like I can’t directly reply to solowing since the reply button not show up, So I will reply here, I agree with you that if they can keep the size similar it always be better, I myself not mad at them or anything but I try to pass a point, More options is always better, be it file size or other random thing (people who don’t have pc that can run 1080p)

    We have 4K these days and soon we even ganaa see them in animes, will it be worth it replace 1080p with them? unless jap will add some magic we can only see in 4K then no, our eyes have their own limit at see what different (not that I saying there’s no difference at all xD ) and that changes not always worth the troubles, Most of us will want to play Video games in the last settings for everything included anti aliasing and what so ever, but the fact is that most people around the world can’t afford it and just stick with high rather than Ultra high, the Anti aliasing eat you card even if it really powerful and not always worth to ne turn on if you have big monitor, Now think that the companies force you to play all the games in the last settings, even if you can it not grantee that others can.

    Last tech take time to be spread around and there always be some small courtiers that not have them yet and will be left out, that why to try and keep multiple options as possible is good idea, I’m not telling you to go back to the days of the 8 bit or OGG, but keep the 720p cause it didn’t harm anyone and still not wroth replace (mostly because our eyes limit and the bandwidth)

    • Period

      Download Deadfish if you want 720p in that case.

      • Statix

        This. Exactly.

        @egozi44

        > Now think that the companies force you to play all the games in the last settings, even if you can it not grantee that others can.

        Before you buy a game, obviously you need to look at the minimum and recommend specs that need for the game. If you pass the minimum you have options to buy it or not buy it. If you buy it and it run not well enough you could lower your graphics setting. Nobody FORCE you to play on ultra setting. You could even refund it if it’s not work for you. And remember it’s not FREE. You need to pay for it. So you need to think hard before you making your decision. Not to mention many people nowadays think it’s fine for game companies and developers to lies about their game to hype it up or making stupid excuse when their game run like shit like: “30 frames per second feels more cinematic and it actually feels better for people when it’s at 30 fps.”

        The encoders here give you the best possible quality you can get. You have option to download it here and if they don’t have the option you like in here you can download other files by someone else at somewhere else. Not to mention they doing this by spending time and money of their own giving you high quality fansubbing for FREE. Nobody FORCE you to download it here.

        > We have 4K these days and soon we even ganaa see them in animes, will it be worth it replace 1080p with them? unless jap will add some magic we can only see in 4K then no, our eyes have their own limit at see what different (not that I saying there’s no difference at all xD ) and that changes not always worth the troubles, Most of us will want to play Video games in the last settings for everything included anti aliasing and what so ever, but the fact is that most people around the world can’t afford it and just stick with high rather than Ultra high, the Anti aliasing eat you card even if it really powerful and not always worth to ne turn on if you have big monitor,

        Heh. So, you think it’s not worth to replace 1080p with 2160p.
        With that logic. it’s not worth to replace 480p with 1080p too, right?And because your eyes have limit like no one else then why bother with higher quality in the first place since you probably fine with 360p 15fps cinematic experience™ or lower anyways and why bother with ultra setting in games since you are probably fine with lowest setting.

        > I’m not telling you to go back to the days of the 8 bit or OGG

        Well, you complain and said it’s not worth to move forward from both 720p to 1080p and 1080p to 2160p but somehow it’s worth to move forward from 8bit to 10bit and ogg to something better? This is make no sense.

        > Last tech take time to be spread around and there always be some small courtiers that not have them yet and will be left out, that why to try and keep multiple options as possible is good idea
        > people who don’t have pc that can run 1080p

        Except you don’t need latest high-end parts like i7 6700K for that. Even with 10 years old tech like C2D E4500 ($7 on ebay) could run 1080p 60fps fine and C2Q Q9400 ($38 on ebay) could run 2160p 60fps fine and you could build a C2Q PC with second hand parts at $200 or less. If you still using Pentium 4, Athlon 64 x2 or something and can’t afford a $200 for a PC then it’s your problem.

        Source: One of my old PC’s specs is [email protected]@3.2, RAM 4 GB, 9600GT. It can run 2160p 60fps x264 FLAC perfectly fine with 50%-60% load on CPU, 50-60% on RAM, 15% load on GPU, 460MB out of 512MB VRAM.

        >our eyes have their own limit at see what different (not that I saying there’s no difference at all xD ) and that changes not always worth the troubles
        > keep the 720p cause it didn’t harm anyone and still not wroth replace (mostly because our eyes limit and the bandwidth)

        Obviously, if you can’t see the different between 720p and 1080p, 60fps and 30fps it’s your problem. Probably either eyes or brain. Bandwidth is much more obvious since the problem is you when you chose your ISP and your plan. If you don’t have any choice in ISPs it’s your problem of how you manage your bandwidth, not someone else.

        Really… your logic and how you talk like you know shit and make things up is hurt my brain.

        • With all respect i’m not going to read all of these after read most of your and Progeusz commits (Yea I’m aware it not wise and sound haughty, I willing to pay for my stupidity later since I’m not in the mood to read all of it)

          You made it clear that we both think different and you both went ahead and put thing in my mouth or believe you understand my way of thinking (at least from the way you wrote it),

          *I never said I’m not appreciate your time and work (in fact I one of the few who don’t complain on nyaa when random person release sub that is “Sucks” since I can understand he/she used her free time which they probably can never gain back on sub that show

          *You mixing things up, Yes I believe that what you done is not different than “spitting in the face” since you have the option to do both 720p and 1080p, but you choose not to, it not mean I don’t appreciate your work, and unlike what you *may start to think by saying stuff like HDDs are cheap, shitty PCs can run these things, 1080p are not let tech, it my fault, Let me just make one thing clear, I have high end pc, money to buy more HDDs and I’m aware that 1080p is not lest tech, So why I bother fight with you guys? cause you missing the main point, I’m not fight for myself here but rather for other people who don’t have the means to run it, why? because despite not really been in that situation I can understand how it like when you want to do something but can’t just because the person in control decide to change some rules in the “kingdom” and nothing more.

          That actually what you also can call being haughty, people assume they know what best for us and tell all the others to go away if they not think alike (even if they not literally saying it, that what it usually make others feel)

          You can tell me forever how you need to be smart enough to read spec before you buying Video game, or how 1080p is not last tech, how HDDs are cheap, or how slow ISP, can be my issues and it my fault for not change/buy/check them,

          But it just stuff that go around the issue, to some it may sound like what fat aristocrat will say, why? because that what person who don’t understand other’s situation will most likely say.

          The fact is that many small countries around the world don’t have last/high tech, yet people from countries you didn’t even heard about come to nyaa (or even here) to watch animes, for them HDD aren’t cheap, for them 1080p is something that work slow on their pcs, and not really wroth it,

          They run into all of these issues and why? because few fansub groups decided that 720p is not worth releasing anymore/for this x and y shows,

          720p and 1080p are not the same as 10 and 8 bit, or mkv and ogg despite look like similar cases, why? because the different this time around really not wroth it as it more or less reach the limit our eyes can see clear or worth different, sure I have sharp eyes and can see in 1080p it more sharp and less blurry (depend on the show even fps and color different), but that doesn’t mean other cans (again try thinking from other people’s view)

          It not big different from what MS do right now with Win10, they try to decide what good for us even if it have disadvantages and there’s better way around it, (Don’t go too deep with that example as it something that look different from each person view, especially these who favorite 10)

          In a few more years when 4K and VR will be the next thing, and minimum HDDs will start with 1-2 tera bytes everywhere I won’t complain if 1080p will be the lowest option, but right now it just look like a move that still precede it’s time

          • Progeusz

            Yes, they aren’t the same. Difference between 720p and 1080p is much bigger than difference between 8 bit and 10 bit (when the show is actually 1080p). 10 bit mostly means reduced banding, higher resolution means higher quality in every single part of the video.
            If someone can’t see difference between 720p and 1080p, he shouldn’t be bothered by 480p either and should stick to some mp4 reencodes. If he can’t play 1080p, he won’t be able to play 720p with heavy kfx either, he should stick to those hardsubbed by default .avi reencodes.

            Appealing to the lowest common denominator isn’t the way to go. Striving for high quality is commendable thing to do. After all that’s the point of fansubs these days when we have CR, funishit and other official streaming services. People who can’t play 1080p have many options. HorribleSubs or other rips. Basically every show is getting some reencodes sooner or later. They can also stream (lol).

            In the past it was common to wait three weeks for terrible subs. Now poorfag white knights throw up a tantrum when there’s no 720p by specific subgroup when alternative (decent one, CR) already exists and comes out the day show airs in Japan.

            It is outright wrong to say that not providing low quality release is equal to spitting in the face. It takes away precious time of people who aren’t obliged to give us anything.
            MS is a huge company and demands shitload of money for their services. DDY doesn’t want a single cent for their superior services. Windows 10 costs more than 3TB HDD. It’s hard to make a worse analogy.

          • Statix

            > *I never said I’m not appreciate your time and work

            Actually I’m not one of DDY’s staff. I’m just used to be one of a staff in a few fansubs groups in 2000-2008. The first and second of your posts never said anything that indicated that you are appreciate their works either. Instead this is what you said in the first post:
            “don’t tell me you also going to ditch 720p… our HDD not grow on trees you know… and if it not worth new one it just like you all spit in our face…” Well, it’s sounds just like insult to me, do you, anyone?

            > *You mixing things up, Yes I believe that what you done is not different than “spitting in the face” since you have the option to do both 720p and 1080p, but you choose not to,

            Actually you are the one mixing things up, like I said I’m not a staff here. A staff already said “we won’t do 720p” because “it’s a waste of time for the encoder.” So, please tell me why they need to pamper you and everyone else that have a problem with it and why don’t you just re-encode it yourself or DL somewhere else if you have a problem.

            > So why I bother fight with you guys? cause you missing the main point, I’m not fight for myself here but rather for other people who don’t have the means to run it, why? because despite not really been in that situation I can understand how it like when you want to do something but can’t just because the person in control decide to change some rules in the “kingdom” and nothing more.

            Man… the way how you talk, are you some kind of freedom fighter, a protagonist of a soap opera or something? Firstly you can DL somewhere else, there’re many re-encoder or the one with lower profile like: HorribleSub, NoobSubs, DeadFish, Hi10, etc. Or re-encode it yourself however you want it to be.

            Secondly. You are the one missing the point. In this “kingdom” you speaking of. It never was democracy. Everyone can tell the government how you want thing in this kingdom to be but only the government have power to change things and they don’t need to listen to you or anyone, they can change thing however they like. Despite all that they still giving free candy in their kingdom to everyone on this planet and you don’t to pay for their candy and any tax either.

            > I have high end pc

            Yeah, I also have a Xeon E5-2698 v4 in my PC too. I’m kidding lol. Pic and specs or it never happened. Of course with a proof that it’s yours like write your name on a paper, put it in the case and take a picture.

            > You can tell me forever how you need to be smart enough to read spec before you buying Video game, or how 1080p is not last tech, how HDDs are cheap, or how slow ISP, can be my issues and it my fault for not change/buy/check them, But it just stuff that go around the issue, to some it may sound like what fat aristocrat will say, why? because that what person who don’t understand other’s situation will most likely say.

            You can tell people here how and why they need to do 720p all you want but it just stuff that go around the issue. Like the encoder here, for example maybe he have things in real life he need to take care of like his family, jobs, study, play video games, want to sleep more, play eroge more or whatever reasons, he decided that it not worth his time and effort so he don’t want to do it. Damn! how he can be so arrogant to not listen to your command! /s

            > The fact is that many small countries around the world don’t have last/high tech, yet people from countries you didn’t even heard about come to nyaa (or even here) to watch animes, for them HDD aren’t cheap, for them 1080p is something that work slow on their pcs, and not really wroth it,

            So, it’s their fault for not provide 720p version for you… I mean everyone who can’t run the file? ;) Like I said DL it from somewhere else or re-encode it yourself. It’s not that hard. It’s really obviously if you can’t even spend like $200 or less for a PC or a $80 for like once a year for a 2TB HDD then this hobby is not for you. Just like every other hobbies. Do you complain like this to the game companies for the people that can’t run Star Citizen? or ? And tell them to lower their graphics for your PC? Seriously, 10 years ago I used to re-encode some of anime to .pmp file for my PSP all the time to watch on the go. I’m not running around and tell other people how I like my files to be like and insult them when they not listen to you like a spoiled brat.

            > They run into all of these issues and why? because few fansub groups decided that 720p is not worth releasing anymore/for this x and y shows,

            It’s not even an issue. A staff already said it not worth their time and it not their fault if some people still using Pentium 3 in this day and age.

            > 720p and 1080p are not the same as 10 and 8 bit, or mkv and ogg despite look like similar cases, why? because the different this time around really not wroth it as it more or less reach the limit our eyes can see clear or worth different,

            “reach the limit our eyes can see clear or worth different” LOL!
            Yeah, right human eyes can’t see past 24fps all the 144Hz monitors are scam. /s

            > sure I have sharp eyes and can see in 1080p it more sharp and less blurry (depend on the show even fps and color different), but that doesn’t mean other cans (again try thinking from other people’s view)

            You need to stop thinking for other people and using them as a pretext for you. If they have a problem let them speak by themselves. When you tell other to “thinking from other people’s view” have you ever thinking from the encoder and the staffs point of view? Obviously not. Hypocrite.

            >Yes I believe that what you done is not different than “spitting in the face” since you have the option to do both 720p and 1080p, but you choose not to, it not mean I don’t appreciate your work, and unlike what you *may start to think by saying stuff like HDDs are cheap, shitty PCs can run these things, 1080p are not let tech, it my fault, Let me just make one thing clear, I have high end pc, money to buy more HDDs and I’m aware that 1080p is not lest tech, So why I bother fight with you guys? cause you missing the main point, I’m not fight for myself here but rather for other people who don’t have the means to run it, why? because despite not really been in that situation I can understand how it like when you want to do something but can’t just because the person in control decide to change some rules in the “kingdom” and nothing more.

            Yeah, I can feel you. They don’t want to do it because they think it’s a waste of their time and then you tell them how you want it to be with a pretext: “I’M DOING THIS FOR EVERYONE! NOT FOR MYSELF!!” and top it with some insult: “it just like you all spit in our face”. You are not playing victim at all /s.

            Just like how you assume you know best for everyone else? Like things they can see, cannot see, limit of their eyes, worth for them or not worth for them? If you called the staffs here “haughty” then what you are, a savior? a saint? ;)

            “Since June of 2014, Japan has been running some of the world’s first 4K channels.”

            “Test broadcasts of the 8K channels will begin in 2016, in time for the Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics in 5 August 2016, and will expand to full-scale permanent broadcasting from there onwards.”

            OH MY GABEN! It take another 4 months and we can live in the future. 8K is so future! ;)

            You sure love to make things up don’t you. The smallest HDD on market today is 500GB and it’s more expensive than 1TB and the sweet spot is 2TB-4TB. So, why the hell are you still complaining? Are you still using IDE HDD 60GB and living in a cave or something?

      You’re shooting yourself in the foot. Yes, 4k is becoming more common in recent years. Yet, the fansubs are only switching to much lower 1080p recently, despite it being available for long years. You should actually be glad they didn’t force 1080p ~two years ago – yes, it would be perfectly justified back then. 1080p isn’t last tech by any means. It was that maybe half a decade ago. The difference most definitely is noticeable when show is actually done in 1080p.

      The video quality in anime is constantly improving and fans should be grateful for that. We have it SO much better than fans of non-anime who are stuck with low quality rips. We switched to mkv first, we got 10-bit, we’re getting proper high resolution. There’s no reason to complain.

      Flipping burgers for a day will give you 1080p screen, another day will result in HDD. I don’t live in US so I have to work for whole week to afford a HDD not counting any other expenses and half a month for actually decent screen but I got them long time ago precisely because I want to enjoy my hobby in best possible quality – and I’m very glad fansubbers provide high quality releases.

        I’m not sure which one is the first anime that run in 720p and 1080p but this is what I remember and I want to point it out. The very first Gundam series that run on 720p is Gundam 00 in 2007 and the one of the very first anime that run in 1080p is Evangelion 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone is also in the same year. Both of them are in 2007 and it was 9 freaking years ago.

        1080p is so latest tech. 2160p is so future. /s

        • Progeusz

          I’m pretty sure in Evangelion only some parts were 1080p while most of the movie was 720p and it applies even to 3.0 and that K-ON! Movie (2011 cinema, 2012 BD) was the first anime to be 100% 1080p. There is a chance I remember it wrong and you are right though. That would mean the 1080p is even less “last tech” than I thought and I don’t really mind being wrong about this. More quality is always good, as long as it isn’t a cheap upscale (like many BDs are).

  • While, I agree 720p 10-bit MKV encodes are the standard for most fansub groups these days, but your 1080p encode is the same size as the 720p release of the other high quality fansubbing group doing this show.

    Rather than a complaint, just wanted to note it actually seemed like this season, would be the first that the last remaining few high quality fansub groups would not compete/oversub each other on any show.

    If your staff are eager to do Flying Witch as well though, good luck and I look forward to your releases.

    • Bunny

      Asenshi’s version is actually 900p (1600×900).

      • Welp

        Oh hell, you’re right. I didn’t realize it.
        That was dumb resolution, but, oh well…

        • ggpls

          How is that dumb, exactly? Thats the resolution of a normal laptop monitor, and its directly between 720 and 1080

          Sure, its peculiar, but I think its the right choice if youre deciding between that and 720p

          • More likely the resolution was chosen by the encoder, after seeing what resolution the show aired in, perhaps it was 1080p for the OP and ED and 900p for the episode, so 900p was chosen.

            Either way this is not like a Coalgirls release where 1080p files are over 1GB each, the first one was only 350MB and I would trust the encoders discretion on the ideal release resolution over myself who has not seen the source.

  • I just want to point out that a double version is certainly nice for the people DLing it as it gives them more option, but it’s a waste of time for the encoder and probably for someone else too since you’d have to check two releases instead of one. So yeah, it’s not all good.
    I think ultimately it comes down to how much you trust the group, i.e. if they released only a 1080p version there’s probably a good reason. Of course that’s putting capped connections and space issues aside.

    • This doesnt necessarily apply here since its a SoL with a lower bitrate, but for me some 1080p videos are just too much for my computer to handle. I have no choice but to skip OP/EDs on any 1080p encode I download or else MPC starts lagging (especially with kfx)

      My laptop’s not particularly new, but its got like 4 or 6GB RAM and a good processor. It can at least play HEVC as long as its 720p

      • Progeusz

        That’s the fault of kfx and bad software, it’s barely related to 1080p. Check your MPC settings, try to tweak them and if it still lags, try mpv.

      • Statix

        > a good processor
        > MPC starts lagging (especially with kfx)

        I would not called it “a good processor.” If it can’t even run x264 1080p 24fps FLAC low bitrate with a simple KFX like on this file. Even a 10 years old mainstream desktop CPU like [email protected]@3.2 can run Owari no Seraph BD files by DDY with higher bitrate and much more heavier OP KFX just fine with 40% load at the start and 80% load when the flame KFX appear while [email protected]@3.2 at 20% and 40%. Comparing with this file, [email protected]@3.2 load less than 15% through out the whole file and 10%-20% at the OP. Even 1 year old mobile CPU like Snapdragon 808 on LG G4 can run this file just as fine.

          He started his comment with “This doesnt necessarily apply here since its a SoL with a lower bitrate” though

  • SEIGI

    What’s wrong with a fansub trying to deliver the best option anyway? The size’s not even that big compared to others’ work. You can just download it then encode it yourself to 720p if you love your HDD so much.

  • Mr.Happy

    Thanks for this, the pacing reminds me of Tamayura which is very pleasant and quite a rarity.

    Looking forward to the next episode.

  • Keaton

    I’m just going to download, thank the crew as always for saving me from simulcasts and move along. These comment sections get more and more ungrateful all the time.

  • Progeusz

    Thank you a lot!
    At first I thought it’s a shame both you and Asenshi work on the same show but I guess I’ll simply watch the episode twice every week :)
    Very interesting comparisons to real places, always liked this stuff.

  • Humberto H

    1080p? GREAT!! =D
    Thank you guys!

    This episode was so great! lovely! funny!
    I totally loved this show, it’s so warm and fluffy…
    I knew it was gonna be a good anime =3

    Makoto couldn’t be more clumsy!

    Once again, thanks!
