Despite the lack of any interesting events surrounding N LogN EG, we actually do have some stuff to report.
So, what the hell is happening at N LogN then?
Picked up Gosick
As with everything Strike does, he decided to spontaneously pick up Gosick. Not sure if we plan on doing the Blurays or not, but I don’t plan on doing them.
Finished Endless Eight In One Go
OK, I’m just announcing this because this was incredible. I thought I was gonna go crazy encoding Endless Eight. But I actually did manage to get through all of Endless Eight intact. I plan on finishing the rest of Haruhi in the next release. As in, I’m gonna just go for the gold and finish this series off and post the full batch sometime this week or next week.
Confirmed Infinite Stratos Blurays
Ever since we picked up IS in January, we’ve been planning on doing the Blurays. The question is “when?” Well, this is Strike’s prerogative, so if he decides to release these as they come out—which I will pressure him to—then you’ll start seeing IS BD’s in April, at the earliest (source).
Confirmed MM! Blurays
We’ve decided to pick up the MM! Bluray release, but you probably won’t be seeing any MM! releases until July. The pipeline is long. Very long.
Confirmed Ore no Imouto Blurays
OK, now that the “true route” episode has aired, I’ve decided that this series is worth releasing. We’ll be slotting this in immediately after we finish Haruhi. It’s a short 12 episode series and only 6 Bluray episodes are out right now, so it shouldn’t hamper any of our other efforts.
Confirmed Kore wa Zombie Desuka Blurays
Strike saw episode 5 and immediately thought to himself,
I gotta see the loli naked! I can die a happy man if I can just see her naked!
So he decided to do the Zombie Blurays. We’re not sure when we’ll start releasing these either. I’m assuming Strike will release these as they become available.
Confirmed Xam’d: Lost Memories Blurays
Just another series to add to the end of the pipeline. Ironically, Xam’d was first available on the Playstation Network. Then Studio Bones manufactured the Blurays and now we’re ripping the Blurays off and putting it back on the Playstation 3. Weird.
Confirmed Yosuga no Sora Blurays
Strike was originally going to do these, but figured that his computer would detonate if he tried to encode any more Bluray content, so my team has decided to pick it up instead. Again, this is slated for early to mid summer. Don’t expect these soon.
Confirmed Kara no Kyoukai Blurays
I was a little hesitent on this one, but it turns out everyone wants to see this OVA set on the Playstation 3, so we’re gonna do it. The biggest challenge for us is to make this series as small as possible without damaging the quality of the work. There are two ways do it: denoise the source video or tell x264 to compensate for grain. We could be doing a bit of both in the end, but we’ll figure it out whenever I actually finish downloading the beast.
We’re slated to finish this series by May.
The Month of Love
N LogN has been seeing an increase in traffic over the past 3 months, but this month seriously shocked me. We had over 65% more views this month than in January, which already blew away the previous months. In fact, you could pick any two days in February, and it would have accounted for more views than the entire month of June. Not only that, but we had more visitors in the month of February, than in months of September, October, and November combined! That’s incredible.
So I just wanted to thank all you guys, our fans. When I first created this group, I didn’t think that it would pick up this quickly, but I’m really happy it did. You guys make doing this work rewarding—even if we have to suffer through the Endless Eights, the To Aru Majutsu’s, the Ookami-san’s, and whatever other terrible anime we end up screwing ourselves with.
So, if you ever wondered what our projected release schedule looks like, I’ve decided to publish it on the “Pipeline” page. That’s our tentative—very tentative—release schedule. Check it out if you want an idea of when we plan on releasing anime.
X264 Reference Page
OK, so I know some of you are probably like,
What the hell is this page about?
Well, if you ever want to encode stuff yourself using x264, the X264 Reference Page gives you the settings that we use to encode our media. If you wanna use that page as reference, you’re free to.
