Hmmm...I've had the Ayu version for some time, but is it worth getting the Yoroshiku version???
Or is it just an "upsized" version?

I just found out that there's a REC game planned

I have no idea what type of game it will be, but information about the game got out in the September 2006 issue of the seinen magazine Sunday GX.

I hope someone can provide this info about the game >.<

What the heck would a REC game be about? The only thing I can think of it being would be a novel game like F/SN and Demonbane. Maybe it'll pick up on the story of the manga where the anime left off? The anime only covered volume 1, after all. lol

We didn't upsize any of REC. It aired on BS-i which is a digital HD station. Oh and DVD episode is out now, just so you know :>

Wink Hmmm.....

11 minute episodes? Sounds a bit like "If I see you in my dreams".

I'll check this one out, it sounds like a mixture of odd chance, romance,
and some awkwardness. Interesting.

The episodes are quick, concise, and almost zero filler. Like the HanTsuki short series... these seem like discipline exercises for the writers to improve their story telling skills. The results are very good.

"7.5" (or in the revised, official order, 8) is the DVD only episode. Matusumaru and Aka go out drinking with Tanaka(?) from Accounting (the chick who stood him up in the first episode) and hilarity ensues.

Talked to you on IRC...remember?

I did some more comparisons and I came to a conclusion(ahem, my explanation) that BS must have had the episodes in ->(I believe it was 480p, my knowledge here is limited) and upscaled it for HD to 720p). The DVD only episode has got a different resolution, smaller than the TV versions.

Hasn't there been a drinking episode already???

May I ask whats the difference between the xvid version and the h264 version that Yoroshiku released? Both their file sizes are about the same.

And thank you for subbing 7.5

The H264 version is of higher quality.

I see, thank you, but shouldnt the file size be bigger in that case?

Anyhow just watched the episode, very nice indeed; you know, just watching this makes brings back all that REC goodness, I LOL'ed and yet felt sad at the same time when Aka said, in cute "pouting" tone, that line from The Unforgiven; so fitting and delivered with such loving resentment. And with Tanaka later, trying so hard to carry her, again hilarious, yet very touching at the same time. Her little pouts and reactions when Matsu was with Tanaka ~ giving even more insight into her love. Chock full of other little hilarious moments. Hatakeda and Aka the talking cat. LOL. This is one meaningful and fun romance series. aliensporebomb, you wont regret trying it.

And OH WOW theres a lovely ED in this episode!!1! They didnt have that in the ones that aired..

Sometimes encoding algorithms win over size... this is just an example of that.

I'm still kind of mixed about h.264 but thats a topic for another thread.

Was almost late for work this morning - got to episode 7 and am enjoying
it thoroughly. Likeable characters.

More commentary after I've watched it all.

I could stand to see more of this kind of thing too, pretty nicely done in
terms of the pacing - even though they're 11 minute episodes they don't
feel like they're that short - the pacing is excellently done surprisingly.

Okay, watched the whole thing and loved it.

The OVA episode was predictably hilarious but I was hoping our heroine
would be a wee bit more jealous than was displayed.

Just the right mix of comedy/romance/seriousness - I'd like to see a
second season and perhaps wee bit longer episodes but the pacing
was surprisingly good in the shortness we had.

This did remind me of "If I See You In My Dreams" since that was
basically an office drama too (although with a depressing ending)
with adults as the main characters. I think I like this one better
because the lows were brutal but the highs were pretty high -
our hero can be surprisingly thoughtful when he wants to be and
I think that's what endeared our heroine to him.

And Aka herself had enough youthful enthusiasm and exberance
to pull Matsumaru out of "I'm only 26 but I seem like a 55 year
old depressed guy looking back on my life with nothing to show
for it". Does every anime male protagonist have zero confidence?

And, hey, it works in real life too. The woman I married was just
about six years younger than myself (and with similar exuberant
qualities) so all the Otaku who says it can't happen, well, they are
wrong.

Just watched the episode 7.5 ... predictable plot but funny execution (reminded me a bit of an "I Love Lucy" homage). Lots of Aka eyecatches in the ED.

Mostly it reminded me how much I enjoyed watching this series.

Quoted for great truth. I too was hoping Aya would do more against Tanaka (but you got to admit that scene of her shoving yakitori into his mouth was precious) but I guess its an insecure "wont I be dominating him like that" feeling on her part that stopped her. I think.
