K-ON!! 01 BD OUT!!!

November 25, 2010

And here is the Blu-ray version of episode 1 and our second Blu-ray release! “Episode 8+ where,” you say? We’ll have to wait for a while because the raw provider is out on vacation (the one I mentioned before) so we don’t have access to his FTP and ISOs. However, we do have the first few episodes and if all goes according to plan (nothing goes according to plan, really), we’ll release each of the BD rip weekly.


K-ON!! 01 – 1080p BD (h.264+softsubs+2 sub tracks)
K-ON!! 01 – 720p BD (h.264+softsubs+2 sub tracks)
K-ON!! 01 – 480p BD (XviD+hardsubs+no honorifics version only)

DDL: (Megaupload)

K-ON!! 01 – 1080p BD (h.264+softsubs+2 sub tracks)

K-ON!! 01 – 720p BD (h.264+softsubs+2 sub tracks)

Drop by our IRC channel!


Each BD release comes with 3 versions – 1080p, 720p, and 480p (XviD). “Which version is the best for me,” you say? If you’re on a notebook or prefer watching anime on TV via a DivX-compatible DVD player or in any portable device, go with the 480p version. If you have a decent multi-core PC/MAC with a small-medium sized monitor, go with the 720p version. If you have a good multi-core PC/MAC with a gigantic LED monitor (eg. Cowboys Stadium-caliber monitor), the 1080p version is for you. Unfortunately the encode is not DXVA-compliant but we will implement this on our future encodes. We do recommend you use CoreAVC to decode the video for the 1080p version if you experience lag and it will greatly benefit Nvidia (7 series to latest) users with its CUDA acceleration. More or less you get 50% CPU load reduction. Playback trouble? Go to our How to Play Anime page for a solution!


Not to make this section longer, I’ll get to the point: Main dialogue font changed (same font as Aki Sora, Working!!, and PSG), OP and ED translations reduced to one line instead of two (English and Romaji) and will follow the  same alternating style used in our Sasameki Koto DVD.

Comments? Suggestions? Please tell us!

Thank you for downloading, seed as much as you can and if you wish to support the group for future projects, a little donation helps!

Speaking of Sasameki Koto DVD, we’re making new encodes because apparently I failed/too late to realize people hates halos. Yeah, I know, that was dumb of me.  Oh and the K-ON!! 01 1080p version, HotFile DDL and IRC bot next week. The encode is done but I don’t have the connection needed to upload it to one of our staff who has a better connection for seeding, etc. 20 KB/S + 750MB of data + 8 hours, 5 days a week limited internet access = it sucks. D:



  1. Awesome!!! Thanks for the updates!
    And happy thanksgiving to you! (if y’all celebrate it!) xD

  2. At least there is progress in K-ON!! I’m still waiting for Working!! though…

  3. Any progress status on Candy boy? ლ(¯ロ¯ლ)

  4. @HayateM:

    No changes. The QC’er in charge is… he’s doing something else (aka New Vegas). That’s what I think he’s doing, at least.


    Back to topic: Is there some kind of curse over candy boy XD

  6. ‘ ┌(゜□゜;)┐ I meant Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

  7. @HayateM:

    Haha! You could say that. We’re taking extra care doing Candy Boy. I hope we won’t screw up for making it worse than actually taking extra care of it.

  8. I have a question about Candy Boy files… What format to expect? Mkv or .avi? I hope for that time of waiting, to show us a good ones, .mkv dvd…

  9. @nothingatall:

    This time we’re going to release the MKV and AVI versions. And don’t worry, this version will be better than the rest of the older versions. 😀 Actually, the batch is 100% ready. I’m currently distributing the release to the staff with good connection. Once they have the copies, we release. ❤

  10. i here that. i move from New Zealand to Australia and had no broad band for 4 weeks. was paying $30 for 1GB mobile broadband. now im on a 100GB per month. and all of a sudden, im happy. and stopped drinking. people only drink coz thay don’t know the joy of anime. if i ever make any money your on my list for for donation. atm i got 160 bucks to my name. yet i have free anime. life is good.

  11. no ordered chapter, right? 😉

    i’ll try the 1080p 🙂

  12. @Index:

    Not yet implementing ordered chapters. For the rest of the projects, we’ll stick with the old-school way. =)

  13. that’s good. since i don’t like ordered chapters that much. *u can say that i hate it* 😛

    ohhh and please seed it as much as u can. now it’s only 2 seeder that seed directly to me 😡

    5 Kb/s? that’s real slow 😦

    upsss..i forgot to say thanks 🙂

  14. @Index:

    I have to admit our distro is MIA for a very long time now. I can’t seed at the moment due to some complications. We’ll seed it as soon as we possibly can. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  15. upsss…don’t worry about that 😉 i appreciate ur effort and work to this project 🙂

    i will wait for ur next project 😀
