Welp. Winter Sucked. Hopefully this year things’ll turnaround.

I feel like any notes of this show are kinda made obvious by watching the Ultraman/Seven episode namedropped. So, y’know, go watch Ultraman #37. The show in general is p. good. And the dvd sets are cheap iirc?

Alice in Dreamland

vlcsnap-03126DDL | Torrent

Alice in Wonderland: A classic tale pretty much everyone knows the beats of, whether through the original novel, or through a myriad of derivative works and adaptions from around the world. Some stick relatively close to the source material, others take their own liberties with it, and some use its influence as an underlying base to tell a vastly different story. Alice in Dreamland, is fairly in the third camp, telling the story of an Alice, reading the original story herself, when she happens upon the White Rabbit. But things quickly diverge from there, as a certain Darkness looms above…

Joint with Orphan fansubs. I’d also recommend reading Collectr’s post over this one as it is much better written.

So hey, here’s MBE’s first foray into animation! Though unlike most animated adaptions I’ve seen of Alice in Wonderland, this one directed by Kentaro Hakusaka utilizes stop-motion, in addition to dolls (created by Mari Shimizu) instead of the usual articulated puppets. Which when combined with creepy, slightly nauseous-looking visuals and a weird yet enjoyable soundtrack by arai tasuku (with the opening and ending by a group called “Black Violets”), make for an interesting (if not nightmare-fuel) variation on a classic tale.

I originally commissioned this film near the start of this year after it popped up on ADC and piqued my interest. It was planned to be a joint with another group, but those plans fell apart due to the key member having to pull out. So it languished (depressions a killer), until the idea was given to ask Collectr on Bakabt for help. While I regret relatively shoving him and his staff into helping with it, it was both educational and fun to work with them, and hopefully will do again at some point (but with more planning, and less out-of-the-blue-ness). Staff credits are as follows:

Translation: Heatmetal
Editing + Typesetting: Collectr
Timing: Champstice, Yogicat
Dialogue/Song styling: Champstice
Quality-Checking: Calyrica, Nemesis
Encoding: M74

We hope you enjoy this trip down the rabbit hole!

Tiger Seven 04: Oil Hominid’s Terrifying Ambitions!


DDL | Anidex | Nyaa

So… been a while since an episode of this has been released, huh? The TLDR of it is that the audio for this show sucks making translation a pain, as well as getting it checked. So there might still be a few snags, but at this point I’m fed up waiting, so if anyone does spot any errors, I’ll gladly v2 it.

After all that TLDR, please enjoy this episode about our heroes fighting the ancient Mu forces of evil, only to be obstructed by the evil that is Corporations.
