Detective Conan 301-302 - Baaro Fansubs

Not quite the level of quality control I would have liked to put into it, but it was rotting on my hard drive for a few months with only minor tweaks needed, so I decided to give it a final look-over and push it out.

This little project got neglected for a while after I got it to 99% completion...

Not much is changed in the translation. The subs from 7 years ago are mostly fine.

What I did was create a new raw, based mostly (but not entirely) on the remastered airing from a couple days ago, and adjust the existing subs to it, with a little primping and polishing to bring them up to my current standards, and to improve a couple lines.

Took a bit longer than planned.

Usually I don't entertain people who try to spam the site to promote their own encodes or whatever, but I got a comment in my spam filter that I felt merited attention (although the commenting engine wouldn't let me delete the link and then post the comment with edits, so my only choice was to leave it in the trap).

This person says he checked the Baaro XDCC bot and found "just TV rips with pretty low quality". Apparently he has a vision problem: apart from the "remastered" episodes, none of our episodes prior to 453 (and we have subbed many episodes prior to 453--in fact almost all our Conan subs are from that period) are DVD rips at a minimum.

Although episodes 453 and up are, in fact, TV rips, they are HDTV rips, and come from the best available sources, and are encoded to the same standards as the DVD rips. They should be higher quality than DVD rips, and they are certainly higher resolution. In all cases the raws are from as close to source as possible - the original DVDs, the original VOD streams, the original broadcast transport streams - and are never taken from publicly available encodes (unless said encodes come from our own staff, or those of our sister groups on Hoshinet).

I suspect the real reason for the comment was that the poster merely wished to pump his own raws. As, again, I could not delete part of the comment and let the remainder stand, I had to leave the comment unapproved; as there was no way to make this post make sense in a thread, I felt it necessary to create a separate post on the blog to clarify matters, in case someone else thinks we use substandard public raws on our releases.

So I banged out a quick resub over the past few days to prove that I was still alive. I was originally going to do it as part of the DCHD project but decided to start from scratch (or rather, from the English manga) instead.

I wound up getting involved with Kienai Fansubs on Detective Conan: Episode "ONE", and now I'm part of the group...

This doesn't mean that Baaro will cease to exist, but we'll be working together on improving some of the older episodes of Detective Conan, which had in the past 5 years been my bread and butter.

It's also why there's been a bit of radio silence on my end as of late.

I'm getting ready to work on the last leg of the Japanese cut of Dragon Ball Kai. Fortunately, I won't be working from TV rips...unfortunately, apart from a possible offer from the old translator to provide me with a translation of the final ending theme, I'm not going to be able to get the old (proto-DragonTeam) group back together, as they've moved on.

This is more to bring closure to the project, although I know it's been a couple years since I've touched it, since I've had a couple people ask about it, and I think I can do it without much difficulty by using the longer international cut as a base, much as in the previous days I used the original DBZ as a base. I can't guarantee that I'll be able to get bluesun back to translate the final ending, and I can't guarantee that I'll be able to motivate myself to go back and finally upgrade the earlier episodes to BluRay source. I'll do what I can.
