Let me say that @deep is one of my all time favorite projects. The humor fits who I am perfectly, I like the otaku in it (it reminds me of all my friends), it just seemed like a series that totally fit with the kind of people that liked the same things I liked.
I started working on @deep almost exactly a year ago. I first noticed it from the trailer for the movie version, and really dug the music (for the trailer). So I went and got a few episodes of the TV series on a whim. The first episode left me pretty underwhelmed. "Okay, it's a comedy show that makes fun of geeks, how deep can it be?" But as the series progressed, I really fell in love with the characters in the show, and liked all the little details that were put into its creation.
At the end of each of the TV series release that line was left untranslated. Basically the TV series that aired (which we did the original subs off of) was not how the director originally intended for the series to be seen. The real show was always supposed to be for DVD release (more footage and whatnot)
What's different? Well, there's more footage for one thing. Some of the cuts are completely different. All the eyecatches were replaced with boring ones on the DVD (for reasons I fail to see) There's no longer episode previews. And they show the full ending sequence (plus no disclaimer to tell you to buy the DVD to see the real show). In addition, with the DVD audio being superior, I've gone through and reworked every script, so even with the old scenes some of the subs might be different from before.Anyway, hope you guys enjoy the version upped @deep
