Donation goal met!

We met our server donation goal last night! Thank you to everyone who donated! We really wouldn't be anywhere without community involvement.

That said, we're just going to leave the donate button up year round now, in case people want to leave tips. Donations receied during these times will be used to cover material costs (buying DVDs, paying for streaming services, etc.). So no obligation to donate from here on, just leave a tip if you like what we're doing. Thanks everyone!

Copyright law change?

tl;dr Probably will continue as we are now unless we hear something more concerning.

Any video encoder techy guys around?

I need to capture some footage from a VCR player and a Laser Disc player, does anyone have good advice for how to do that?

I'm currently working with someone to redo our Toei Yu-Gi-Oh anime subs, but this tech can be used for other stuff too

Zero-One viewing party tonight!

So we're teaming up with Tokusatsu TV on Twitch. They'll be streaming our episodes and hosting our viewing parties. They also have a Discord so if you want to download the video and just watch it in sync with everyone, you have that option too.

We have reached out to Takenoko and are pleased to help host the viewing parties currently. We will strive to bring something great to the table as far as public awareness for the genre and to help those here, as well as newcomers, connect on an even greater level. We want to help spread the word about an amazing group of people that we have held in high regard for years and to assist in nurturing and growing their audience to the best of our abilities for the foreseeable future.

To that end, we will be altering our onscreen transitions in-between episodes to include the TV-Nihon name as a wonderful source of Japanese media. We will also be altering our channel description (Site/Discord links; etc) and encourage many viewers and fans to go check TV-Nihon out.

Everyone here hopes you will have just as much fun watching together as we've had making all of this possible and, from all of us at TokusatsuTV, "If you Kamen, They will Ride!"

Starts at 6 PM Pacific!

Tracker update

Hi, if you're using our RSS feeds, you might need to add an s to the http sinc ethey're not on https.

If it's not working for you, let me know, but otherwise I think it should be fine with the updated url.

Thread

Edit: From the forum in case other people have the same issue:

"Nope, making the URL https didn't work, but I found the problem. My client is set up to use a Socks5 proxy (for torrent privacy in general), and apparently https feeds can't be downloaded over a proxy. The only solution I found is to switch to a different client that only uses the proxy for the actual torrents, not the rss feeds."

Viewing party for next Zero-One release?

I want to have a viewing party for the next Zero-One release. Let's start with something simple like meeting on IRC and just doing a countdown. If it's popular maybe we can research one of those other programs (Unless someone wants to do that for me)

So for the next Zero-One release, viewing party! Details:

Time: 6 PM Pacific time same day of release. So if it releases before 6 PM on Tuesday, we watch it that 6 PM. If it's after, then we watch it on Wednesday at 6 PM.

Place: IRC web client: http://cgiirc.synirc.net/
Channel: #tv-nihonwatchers

Again, if someone wants to come up with a better system and handle it for me, I'll gladly step aside and we'll try their plan.

Watch parties?

Would people be interested if we set up meeting time to watch a release?

Like maybe 10 PM Eastern, 7 PM Pacific on the day of a release people can meet up and watch the episode release together? It'd just be an excuse to hang out and experience a thing together with other people

We can probably set it up on discord or whatever

Site tips and tricks

There's multiple ways of getting our files.

If you have a Dropbox, let me know and I can add you to a release folder.

If you have a torrent client or seed box, you can set it up to auto download the torrent using RSS feeds:

http://tracker.tvnihon.com/rssinfo.php

You can even use filters to only download the HD, HD720, or SD versions. I might not get the odd one out like the Hyper Battle Videos, but it should be mostly automatic.

Server donation goal met!

And donations are closed again. Thank you to everyone who donated this year!

If you've donated and want to be credited, just shoot me an e-mail with the name(s) you want to be credited by.

These donations help offset the cost of running a translation group. Thank you again!

Open for donations for the server costs

Hi everyone!

We're running a second donation drive this year to cover server costs. Looks like they only need 350 this year.

We had extra cash from the materials and service drive earlier this year, but I think we're just going to keep it separate from server drive. We've got enough from this year's drive to not need one (a materials drive) next year, barring some terrible catastrophe.

Thank you again to everyone who donates and support this group!

I still need to get off my lazy ass and make the donor appreciation splash for the episodes. Oh! If you want to be credited for such a thing, please mention that in your donation and I'll gather up those names later on for a second splash.

It's been pretty fun talking with donors and stuff so if anyone wants to just talk about stuff, feel free to shoot me an e-mail via the contact button above.

Social Media

Facebook finally pinged that the new fanpage was a complete copy of the old one so they deleted it again. *eyeroll*

So if you're looking for the CMs online, I'll be uploading them weekly to Twitter when the episode is released. Follow @tvnihonsubs for releases and videos.

Zero-One 10 is seeded

Looks like the stats just aren't updating because of the stuff that happened yesterday. If you connect to the tracker, you will get the file.

Our site admin will get it fixed as soon as he can. He also works a full time job and essentially volunteers for us the same as everyone else who works here, which is pretty ridiculous considering. We're super lucky to have him.

Donation drive met

So I should have e-mailed everyone who donated to us. Please check your e-mail and junk folder in case my message ended up there. I want to try rewarding people who donated to us.

Also, some of you guys sent in some great comments and stories, so if you did that, please let me know if it's okay to share that.

Facebook 2: Electric Boogaloo

We're in the process of contacting facebook to see if it's possible to get the original page back, but as it seems unlikely, we've set up a new page. If the original page gets restored, we'll delete it, but until then, please add

We look forward to getting banned from social media again~

TV-Nihon Facebook Page Removed

I'm sorry to announce that unfortunately due to a copyright infringement claim on a video posted to the TV-Nihon Facebook page, the whole page has been deleted by FB administration. There does not appear to be any way to restore the page. We will be considering trying other social media platforms and will inform you via the front page once created, but our facebooking days are over.

Thank you to all the fans who liked our page, and I'm sorry that the deletion was so sudden and left you in the lurch.

What the DMCA removal means

All that happened is that Google removed the Zi-O category from showing up on their searches. There's nothing to worry about and it won't affect the way we run our site in any way.

Chinese domain scam

"To whom it concerns,

We will register the China domain names "tvnihon.cn" "tvnihon.com.cn" "tvnihon.net.cn" "tvnihon.org.cn" and internet keyword "tvnihon" and have submitted our application. We are waiting for Mr. Daniel Liu's approval and think these CN domains and internet keyword are very important for our business. Even though Mr. Daniel Liu advised us to change another name, we will persist in this name."

Apparently this is a scam to get domain owners to buy a bunch of useless Chinese domains. But just in case, don't go to any weirdo deviations of our domain name:
