Should probably keep the original numbering at least until we find out what the deal is with episode 4.

Everyone who has ever written anything about Garo episodes in the past has used the original airing order. So it would probably be less confusing to keep the order as it is.

By the way, is there any advantage of watching the remake over the originals if all you watch is SD? I am using the remaster as an excuse to rewatch it, but I usually download the SD versions to save on file size, since I will be watching it on a small screen, anyway.

Yeah, it sounds like there's no reason to change the episode numbers. Just hope no one writes in to ask where 4 is when we do the release this week. (You know people will)

Absolutely, it looks way better. The source is better, plus we're using h264 encoding which is a better codec than xvid.

Plus, we're redoing the qc, and Luna and the rest of the qc team are finding a lot of mistakes that I made in the original. It should just be a better overall experience. Can't wait for the Blu-rays to come out so we can release something more definitive.

I just rewatched Episode 4. The important thing is that Kaoru got evicted; she hasn't move in with Kouga yet.

I heard my friend who live in Japan said that last year, the actor played Tategami Ryouichi used drugs, so that's why ep 4 cannot on air.

Did some digging, 2chan says Kase Taishuu was found with amphetamines, so yeah, they're basically not allowed to have him on air anymore. The episode will probably be on the DVD though.

Japan is so weird about drugs. Is Breaking Bad even a thing in Japan?

I've seen it advertised on the paid Fox drama channel and it's definitely on Netflix in Japan so I guess they don't care about fake drugs only real (weak sauce) drugs?

I'm just surprised that you can get ostracized and banned in such a way, even retroactively.

To be fair, I find the American system of corporations testing their employees for drugs and advertising themselves to customers as drug-free weird as well. But as they say in my home country, other countries, other customs.
So, improved translation, reduced re-encoding and deinterlacing artifacts due to hi-def sources being downconverted and a codec with better quality per bit rate. Sounds worthwhile. I will probably still watch the old version of EP4 as a stopgap.

Maybe the case of the missing EP4 and its potential for confusion can be solved with an explanation in the release posts, assuming that revisiting the 2005 version of the episode is more trouble than it is worth.

Yeah, we'll probably mention something when we do a release. But you know people'll ask anyway ;-)

It's one of the things I dislike about Japan, the celebrity industry is brutal. You fuck up once and your career is basically over. Beginning of this year Becky was found going out with a married singer- totally on him btw cause he didn't say he was married. Nothing was proven either way in regards to her having an affair or not but she got dropped from multiple ad campaigns and TV regular spots literally overnight. It was like she never existed.

I watch one of the shows she used to be on and they had a clip show of the best moments of the past 5 years, a show she was a regular on for 10 years, mind, and there was absolutely no footage of her. Zip. Zilch. I'm not even a fan of hers but she got treated horrendously. It's been six months since this scandal broke and she's still being blackballed.

Just rewatched it, that episode was also the first one in which Kouga was portrayed as a nice, caring guy instead of just the blunt fighter.
