Garo -Gold Storm- Shou 22 & CM & Guren Byakuren Commentary released

The Guren Byakuren commentary video actually comes in 1080 resolution, but it looks just as terrible. That's why it's only in SD quality. It was just badly shot.

Ninninger 27 & CM v2 released

Fixed the audio/video desync at the end.

Ninnin 27 audio/video desync?

I think it might have just aired this way, since it's in both our copies. I think I can wrangle up a workaround so that it's not as noticeble. So if that works out, expect it sometime tonight. Hope this doesn't inconvenience anyone.

About the movie audio thingy

"Dolby Digital/DTS/etc are generally mixed for a wider dynamic range while stereo is generally compressed for a narrower dynamic range -- i.e. basically what ViRGE said." So basically there's more range, quiet stuff is more quiet and louder stuff is more loud, but we probably don't notice those parts.

Thanks to Virge, Madcow, and everyone else who answered in the thread. If you're interested in the subject, check out what they have to say about it.

Movie audio?

I received this question via e-mail. The reader was asking why the audio was so quiet in movies compared to the TV series. I told him I thought it was because the movies tend to be in surround sound, so maybe something makes it quieter. Perhaps when the different tracks are converted to stereo?

But honestly, I don't know. I'm sure someone here does though, so I'm asking the fans if they know.

I loved this cartoon as a kid. It's based off the anime Seijuushi Bismarck and it's like an anime Sentai.

Back it if it pleases you:

I love that there's a bow looking thing in Tanktop Shadow's design, but when you look closer, you see it's just a hanger and that it's a part of Tanktop Shadow's design.
