& you have to think, Yukito probably isn't just doing this because his Mother asked him too, its also to find out just who he is, his purpose in life - and how Yukito ending up, i believe he found himself.

I've seen the movie. I see that it has a different storyline from the series. I love the character designs. Kinda better than the series because the characters look a little kiddy-ish compare to the movie. Also, it seems that the movie emphasize more on the romance area huh?

just watched the series and i have to say that it broke my heart
why did things have to turn out the way they did? >.< its just basically a sad ending...however there is a glimpse of hope that yukito (as sora) will save misuzu!! i guess there isnt gona be a 2nd season of this? a happy ending would be nice...(2nd anime to make me weep a bit...)

Happy endings can't always be good. Air had a very sad ending but it was a great ending compared to many other anime. A 2nd season is out of the question because we don't want a 2nd evangelion again (chances that sequels always screw up the whole story is very high).

That's why i always beleive that things should be as perfect as they are

^Why can't you find them? The specials and movie are still unlicensed and availible. Just visit the torrent page:

http://www.animesuki.com/series.php/468.html


This is off topic but since there are a bunch of AIR fans around, you may want to stop by the autumn Animesuki banner contest page and vote for Minoto's Misuzu banner. It would be great to see one up^^

http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=34767

*Edit - Looks like Minoto got third place, yay for all who voted and for Minoto for making it! It will be displayed randomly along with the others winners at the top.

Yay! KickAssAnime is fansubbing Air TV and it seems so far like they're doing a very good job...as expected.

Thumbs down

Well I have to ask.... why? It's already been fansubbed by at least 3 groups, all of whom did a very good job of it (esp. Koi IMHO). Unless someone is doing a radical new translation, or giant subtitles for ipod viewers with tiny screens or something, it's hard to see the point.

Incidentally for those struggling to find Air TV/specials/movie, all but the movie can be direct downloaded from http://anime.fansub.tv/series.php/468/Air/ (they only have torrent links for the movie) there's also vidcaps for all the episodes.

KAA is using DVD raws in x.264 with soft subs. Trust me, the video quality is gorgeous compared to the TV versions of AIR that were out last year. Oh, and the translation is (ahem, perhaps suspiciously?) almost identical to Koi's... so a great translation and gorgeous video/audio.

That's why. ^_^

Actually Koi's translation isn't that good. I found Triads translation much better since they've been translating the sentences instead of Koi's translating the main ideas with alot of editting (which IMHO loses the flavor of the anime). I just hope KAA doesn't make the same mistake as Koi.

Hmmm.....4th subbed version of AIR sounds nice to my collection >.>;

I ended up getting a script of the game dialogues because koi wasn't doing it sentence by sentence. Actually I remember by AIR arc I turned the video off and instead listened while I had the script with me and I was a wreck throughout the whole thing. Turning the video back on afterward that and simply listen in was all the more powerful because of it.

Koi's files were much smaller though for similar technical quality. I was on dialup at the time and the difference between downloading Koi and Triad was about 4 hours.

I went for Triad's because they did the Summer Special as well and theire releases are usually of very high quality. But once KAA is done, then I'll probably go for their version.

I downloaded subs of the series for each group^^

I have watched a different sub version for every time I've rewatched the series. Already did Koi, Lunar and Ishin's. Planning on doing a run with Triad before summer ends.

Koi's was great, but I also liked Ishin as well (especially since I also enjoyed their sub of the first Kanon).

Hm. Well, when Air was actually 'airing' I remember watching episodes of the show by Koi, Ishin, Lunar and the Triad. Out of those, Lunar was the hardest to watch, followed by the Triad - I just don't like the English that they used. Mind you, it has been a while - and I ended up getting the Summer Specials by the Triad for reason of expediency.

Koi provided for me the best balance of a very readable English sub, with hyper fast translation and quite decent quality. If I wanted more detail or clarity on any issue, I had but to hit this forum, which was, back in the day, absolutely huge. I very rarely needed too though.

I agree that Lunar were hardest to watch, I didn't like their (admittedly innovative) style of breaking subtitles into phrases, sticking up half a line of subs and then adding the other half line a couple of seconds later. Because of this I only watched one of their episodes then went back to Koi.

Air Movie

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can download the Air Movie by Koi. It appears that it is not in one of the batch releases. It is not on the tracker site as well. I think they released 2 versions, one in xvid and the other h264.
Any help would be great.

Thanks!!

I found a torrent but I'm not sure if I should post the site on this forum, so I'll pm it to you, but I'm not sure if it works, as sometimes torrents that appear active on the website turn out to be dead.
