Hana Kimi probably doesn't have English subtitles because it's so new... don't know about the other ones though.

There are different options during h.264 compression, one of them is to use b-pyramid, or b-frames as reference frames. This feature is not supported by quicktime, and any h.264 compression that was made with this option checked (which maximizes compression) will not be playable in quicktime. Some g...

You can do one of several things: 1.) Approach fansub groups and offer them your services, and see if any fansub group would like to pick up the project. 2.)

The summary is basically what you just said (please excuse my bad pinyin... too lazy too look them up): Su Xiao Xiao is about a beautiful love story that happened at Xi Zi Lake in Hanzhou. The story is based on a legend, and daringly reinterpreted from the modern point of view. It's partly true and ...

I watched the first half of the thing... hilarious. And the producers must have been on meth or something. Seriously. In case you don't speak English, here's an explanation of the first scene: They are sperms trying to get to the egg, and the main guy was talking about how he won only because of luc...

@ittiou: I wouldn't worry about it. A couple of the Hana Kimi took forever to come out on YDY, too, but I think that their quality is worth the wait. You can always go to icefish if you're impatient, though.

Off topic, but seeding while burning CDs creates corrupted files? I never knew that. (And I have always used Nero.)

Oh well, I should be fine, considering I usually don't burn DVDs until months and months after I get the drama. But that's useful information. :)
