There are two types of encodes that are released on Winny in the initial week after it airs: the 130MB one and the 230MB one. (Windows Media encodes don't count.) Which would you guys prefer in the future?

I cut the OP out. You got 17 megs of bandwidth?

I just watched eps 1 & 2 of Tsukuyomi series and...
It started very well until I saw that horrible op.
Really man, this takes the lolicon thing to a new degree. It gave me the creeps. "Yakusoku yo", "Onii-sama"... They threw in all the lolicon stuff they could find!!!!
Aaarrgh!! It's disgusing!! And what's up with the main characther? She's just a little girl, for god's sake!!! and her design? I could pass her absurd dress, but... cat ears!? It's completely out of place! Moreover, there's all the shots in the bath in episode 1... The producers have gone overboard in lots of ways.
I expected some "oniichan" nonsense just by looking and the promos, like in lots of other shows I've watched. But Tsukuyomi goes far beyond, delighting on its own shamelessness. Why japanese like this kind of thing that much? I can't understand how can you see this anime as cute while I found it pretty perverse (in the bad sense).
The only thing that saves it is the 2nd episode, where things seem to become more normal, like Kouhei's reaction.

Even with all of that, I'll keep watching the show just out of curiosity. And the story hints some comedy and that's my favourite genre. It could be interesting to watch Hazuki using her powers on Kouhei's friends.

By the way, didn't you have any problem while playing the ogm files? I generally don't have but this file is weird. When I try to step backwards or jump to another scene, the sound is gone for at least 5 seconds. And that's too much time. Does anyone have the same problem? I use mpc latest version.

It does that to me too. I tried 4 different players with the same result.

i had a problem playing the ogm of ep. 2:
maybe it was the player i was using (VideoLAN) but certain parts where the characters had REALLY long lines (2 rows on normal subtitles) it wouldn't go down a line and just run on, blocking my vision of the beginning and end of the sentence(s)
oh, and anyone got a link to a place i could download something to make gifs?

ah, and garbhad, i'm sorry but i can't understand how people couldn't find this series absolutely adorable (of course, i have a passion for cute girls...no i don't have a lolita complex -_-)

Until now, only the opening went into that direction. The rest of the show was good.
...hm, we already knew the op was weird, hopefully it will remain the only negative thing in this show.

I have to admit I`m kind of hypnotized my "neko-mimmi-mode" though...

I can't get enough of it now. It's stuck in my head. Must be some sort of subliminal mind control. We'll all be zombies by the end of the series.
It grows on you...kind of like going to Disney World in Florida and hearing"It's a small world after all..." a few times and finding that melody sticks with you longer than your vacation money does.

Have you tried Flash? It will let you save your files as a gif. You can get a free 30 day trial of it from macromedia's website. Macromedia

YAY THANKS!

Edit: Hmm...even though you are seeding, for some reason I can't download from you; is it because I'm using ABC and not Azureus? If not, then can someone else with spare bandwidth try to download it and seed for me? Thanks! >_<

I heard GIMP is a good freeware GIF maker...go google it and try it out! (I prefer Adobe ImageReady)

But yes, you should go support manti; there were too many of us in that thread and it needs some balancing out!

Wow, pretty strong feelings...someone is sure fed up with the "oniichan" nonsense!

I find it adorable, too, although I'm very aware of its excessive fan-pleasing gimmicks.

Maybe I went a bit overboard with my previous statements, but that opening is evil. It gives me the creeps.
I just stumbled upon the raw manga and found out some interesting facts.
1st Hazuki doesn't wear the "cat ears" band, and her dress isn't so outrageous. I think she looks cuter that way. The cat ears appear from time to time (vampire powers?) prolly as a comedic enhancer (and it does a good job ).
2nd The show won't be very long, because there are 8 volumes and a half out, and with just 2 episodes we have seen the first half of the first volume. If you check the numbers, the series can't be more than 13 episodes unless they do lots of fillers or change the story.Prolly, they will do the second
Now I have to end my Japanese studies to be able to read it...

I find the OP to be extremely cute and full of potential GIF...it's like a goldmine for me!

Thanks again, TronDD!

I don't see how you can fit the manga into 13 eps...
There's just too much that would not make it by making it that short.
I have checked all vols that are out, and also the chapters that are published so far that will make it into vol9.

Edit: Blah, just double check, apparantly I got wrong chapter count. But anyway vol 9 is a definite as nekodar said.

that reminds me, are both the anime and manga different? if so, in what sense?

oh, only 13 episodes? Oh, well, if it's done with quality then i dont mind watching it. *Neko Mimi Mode~!*

if you consider the director's past work, SoulTaker (13 episodes even though it could have potentially gone on longer...especially when you see just how many flickers there were at the very end of the series) and Cosette (an OVA series) i wouldn't be surprised (nor would i mind) if Tsukuyomi was only 13 episodes, the whole hyper cute vampire girl thing may wear thin past that

You just don't understand, do you? If you don't know what moe is and aren't interested in it, why are you watching a moe anime show?

I'm not even going to bother explaining the obvious reasons for the cat ears.

Simply put if you did not like what you saw and aren't interested in it then don't bother watching this show. The rest of the episodes are going to be more of the same.
