"Only in America are chickens measured by the carton and the bucket." Posted Thursday, August 26, 2004, 11:51PM by TylerL
Today: Case Closed/Detective Conan Ending #3 straight from the DVDs.
Japanese audio shifted by two measures. Luckily, I was able to splice in the audio from the old file.
FUNimation version starts at the right place, but its tempo is a touch too fast.
Intro #3 could be...interesting. I don't know if I can reconstruct it enough. We'll see. Someday. After I update TDA.

"Carnival games should be named after the feeling you get after playing them. Like, this one should be called 'Futility'...and that one over there is 'Inadequacy'." Posted Saturday, August 21, 2004, 3:59PM by TylerL
A late-night encoding binge has produced this:
Detective Conan/Case Closed Original Intro - High Quality - Dual Language
The FUNimation copy of the intro not only has an extra measure of music where it doesn't belong (cutting off the end), but it also is missing 3.5 seconds of animation during the opening pan ("first new century" part) on both video angles. Brilliant.
This new file has been cobbled together from the following sources:
Original Japanese "Intro Intro" video (color corrected) and audio from Case Closed DVD.
English "Intro Intro" audio from Case Closed DVD
English and Japanese opening song audio from beginning of Episode 1 Case Closed DVD
Textless intro video (with sync repairs) from Case Closed DVD
Original Japanese airing logo at the end of the intro (from low quality video tape).

It all came together very well. Enjoy.

"You better just call the ambulance now, because we'll be injured by the time they get here." Posted Friday, August 20, 2004, 1:08AM by TylerL
HEY.
YOU.
YEAH, YOU.
WE GOT THE FULL ENGLISH AND JAPANESE ORIGINAL ENDING TO CASE CLOSED/DETECTIVE CONAN.
GO GET IT AND STOP ASKING WHERE TO GET IT.

Update later in the night by Tyler: Wonderful. The Endings on both DVDs (and all the intros, but that's an entirely different story for another day) are crazy-screwed up.
The Japanese song used for the Original Ending is not the same one used in the original Japanese broadcast.
It's a version with an extra few measures 14 seconds into the song to make it 7 seconds longer. That really screws up the visual design of the ending animation.
...now, I have a feeling that the endings are not FUNimation's fault, but that of TMS. The tapes given to FUNi seem to be from the international version of Detective Conan. No idea why they're different. Ending 3 gets hit with the same problem. The intros, however, I believe are entirely FUNimation's fault. I'll rant about them later.
A new, updated version of the Detective Conan/Case Closed original ending has replaced the old (a few hours old) version.
I surgically removed the extra measure (with QuickTime Pro. No girly waveform-editor for me, bitches) to match the original Japanese airing as best I could.
Thanks to Jon Simon for pointing that out tonight.

I'm also gay for Knoppix! Posted Tuesday, August 17, 2004, 11:37PM by TylerL

The Venture Brothers intro is the same as the pilot, so...
A quick rename, and I'm done.
Goodnight everybody!
DAMN YOU WILLIAMS STREET!
Aqua Teen cancelled Promo aired. Rejoice with rage.

"So...what you're suggesting that instead of buying the Tempur-Pedic Celebrity bed and risking destruction in a fire without replacement since we had no money left over for home insurance, we use the money we saved on NOT buying the bed to purchase home insurance to protect a bed we don't even own?!?" Posted Friday, August 6, 2004, 12:46PM by TylerL
I've ignored the cried of Detective Conan fans too long.
Have some more stuff:
Detective Conan Intro 4 (Updated, HQ)
Detective Conan Ending 6 (Updated, HQ)
Detective Conan Ending 10
Detective Conan Ending 11

Still 14 more. crazy.

Say goodbye...one last time...again. Posted Thursday, August 5, 2004, 1:10AM by TylerL
According to this promo, the last episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force will be airing this Sunday at Midnight.
In honor of this occasion, the promo is available in MEGADEF480™.
This turn of events is extra sad when you consider that there are four unaired episodes of the latest season that will never see the light of day, since ATHF is being cancelled now.
Because of poor ratings and poor DVD sales.
You horrible people.
In other news, Pilot Candidate has been picked up again by Adult Swim, and another 12 episodes have been ordered. They'll be replacing Family Guy starting in October.

Unexpected promo treat. Don't gorge yourself! Posted Tuesday, August 3, 2004, 1:52AM by TylerL

Old School Anime promo now in the Adult Swim General Downloads section.
