(Links updated to 1080p version.)
We will be doing two releases for this show:
1) The TV broadcast version, which is 720p and will be released 8 – 12 hours after broadcast.
2) The Netflix version, which is 1080p and will be released about a day after the TV broadcast version.
The reasoning here is that the show is produced in full HD (1080p) and benefits a lot from having a proper 1080p encode but getting one from a TV station is not really possible because most of the stations air at 1440×1080 and are littered with MPEG2 artifacting.
Happy New Year, and welcome to our first choice of the Winter 2018 season! And what a wonderful start it is. This was an absolutely charming and heartwarming episode, from the animation and art, to the music, writing, and voice acting. This adaptation is being done by a writer I respect, and it’s the director’s first foray into heading an anime after having worked on several others including Yama no Susume. I think we’re in for a lovely, relaxing journey, so lay out those tents, build those fires, and get yourself comfy.
PS: This is a heavy edit, not an original TL
And thus our journey while trapped endlessly in this natural cage comes to a close. While I would have preferred to focus solely on the people of the Mud Whale and the themes of short lives and records, and others would have liked even more of a military and war focus, I hope you were able to enjoy this trip upon the sand. There’s a short break until next season due to the end of the year, but in these final few minutes of the day, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
