Sorry it’s not the BD release you might’ve been expecting, but oh well.

Penguin Highway QC-kun tells us he’s almost done and that he’ll finish today because he has the day off, so HOPEFULLY he comes through.

Now has dual tracks. No honorifics with language flag eng default with the secondary honorifics track on enm. Have your player prioritize enm to have the honorifics track play by default if you want them.

Let us know if you find anything and we’ll fix for the batch BD release. This has some updated TS and superior video to our TV release, along with some additional batch fixes that we were told about and an additional QC pass.

Now for the nerd shit: this series is animated at a variable resolution, usually somewhere between 844p and 849p or something but I’ve also seen some outliers a little lower and a little higher. The upscale from the studio is hot garbage. To remedy this, I was provided with a script from my buddy kageru that tests the native res of each frame and descales to the one with the lowest relative error and then reupscales to 1080p with a superior resizing algorithm, or leaves the default 1080p scaling from the studio if the error’s too high. That also dealt with some of the aliasing present. Other than that, light denoise and deband. Some of the scenes probably needed an actual degrain (the revues come to mind or anything that’s really dark) but my encoding server couldn’t handle doing that on top of everything else in the script (plus I was losing too much detail for my liking iirc), but this should be good enough. The native 1080p elements (eg text overlays) needed AA and then I also went back and scene filtered scenes (or parts of scenes) that set off my autism when I watched during my QC pass.

Sorry for the delay.

Contains a massive amount of consistency and misc. fixes and updated lyrics from official lyrics.
Kudos to jymmy for giving every insert song a second TLC pass from official lyrics.
These batch scripts are our final scripts that will go into our BD releases minus improved typesetting in some cases.

First BD volume once Tenebris touches up his typesetting for BDs.

There is no 05v1 to 05v3 patch because 05v2 contained a new encode.

You should know from the title it’s all shitty fanservice.

v0 using shitty web video sourced from Bilibili for those impatient. Our BD should be here tomorrow but I have no idea on when v1 will be released.

Batch is being worked on.

Kudos to jymmy for filling in for aka and doing tlc!

Claud will always be my top star

Hello, I’m Akatsukin, and I’m not part of PAS or Chyuu. In fact, I wasn’t even going to be working on this show, and k3 only asked me to look at the songs as a TLC. I didn’t even know what in the heck this anime would be about, or even that it existed until a few days before the first episode. But the instant I started watching, I knew before we even reached the end of the prologue that Revue Starlight would be special. I felt it with my Aikatsu instinct that this would join the ranks of the very best idol shows, even without having any idols!

I love watching mysteries unfold as girls cooperate and compete to reach for the top. I love their powerful personalities, and the unbreakable web of relationships that formed between them. Not a single episode disappointed me, and over and over again my expectations were blown away. Helping to create these subs and discussing the depth beneath each line in the script every week was a blessing and an honor. Starlight was by and far my favorite show of the season, and I hope you all enjoyed watching it as much as I did. Just as dreams are reborn endlessly, both stage girls and fansubbers can be remade time and time again. See you on the next stage.

K3, checking in! Aka’s already wrapped up the post, but I feel I should fill you in on our plans going forward. First, I’m honestly just as surprised as you guys that, somehow, while Chyuu and PAS have a tendency to stall projects, the two of us combined finished episode after episode, week after week, all without ever being an episode behind. We’ll see you around the end of October for the first BD special followed a bit after by the rest of the first BD box, with any luck. I have no eta on the TV batch but hopefully it’ll be within the next few weeks.

See you guys next week for the final episode! After that, we won’t be seeing you again with new content until BD specials, but look forward to the series batch sometime between the BD specials and BD encodes, with any luck.
