A new concern going by the handle Pretty Cure Splash Subs has begun (re-)subbing Futari wa Purikyua Splash Star:In addition to "starting" with episodes 25 and 26,they've also re-subbed the first couple of episodes.The problem:they use those ZEN-unfriendly matroskas.I'll just stick with the earlier subs and raws,lapi...

While I very seldom watch golf,what a relief that the tournament formerly known as the Longs Drugs challenge was on a specialty cable channel with limited audience reach.If it was on a broadcast network,its sponsor would have gotten extra publicity it didn't deserve...

Though she barely came out of retirement,Kimiko Date clearly hasn't lost anything.Congrats to her on her win at the Korea Open...

Happy 45th birthday to Yorie Yamashita...

Hey, Zalis from Pretty Cure Splash Subs here. Sorry to hear about your compatibility issue. I've got nothing against XviD/avi and it wasn't my intention to shut anybody out. The main reasons I'm using .mkv are because

1) I don't have much encoding skill, so any re-encoding I did of the raws (which are .mkv) would probably degrade the quality quite a bit.
2) Because of (1), I can achieve the best overall quality by simply muxing the subs into the raw and leaving them as .mkv. Since my crappy low-end PC can play them, I assumed that pretty much anyone could. Though I admit I wasn't keeping non-Windows/non-mainstream systems in mind.
3) As PCSS is currently a 1-man operation, I don't have the distro resources to maintain separate XviD/avi and h264/mkv releases. Given the low demand for the episodes, I fear it'll be hard enough to keep 1 version in circulation.

But if there's enough demand, I'll look into doing .avi versions of eps 18 and up if I can encode them decently. Universal playability is something I believe in, as I can't play many of today's "HD-only" fansub releases.
