Encode: Shareraw from hikiko123
I’ll be honest, I see this as a bad week. Having about 5 of hikiko123‘s releases delayed and then shoved on the same day is a huge burden of workload. And 2 of those are PoRO, with one of them being a new title.
Thanks to me listening to my gut instinct, I translated two titles earlier using different shareraws, and that meant that I just had to retime them, cutting the script workload by about half. It’s not that much of saved time, though, since timing the dialogues is a strenuous effort in itself, especially when you consider the fact that you already timed them on a different shareraw and how that effort will be thrown away for a new one. And one of the two early titles is an almost 500-line script that I literally timed one-by-one twice for two different raws. The redundancy will start to get on you when the workload is piled up and you’re going inefficient to make the releases a bit earlier than usual. Hell week is this, indeed.
How much time did I save for going through all that? About a day, I guess. It means that in these two titles that has been put up today, one of them would’ve been released tomorrow instead. Pretty trivial time may it be at first glance, but that one day delay means much more on this week, since a day of delay means all successive releases for this week will be pushed a day later as well.
Regarding this OVA, they named the release as volume 1 so there should be a second episode, unless this title gets cancelled (which is highly unlikely). I know that some people out there are glad that this Michiking story is not a Queen Bee (Studio 9 Maiami, etc.) title, while some people are still not satisfied with this level of quality. It’s under the PinPai label, and made by Studio Seven, and I personally like this overall if you’ll ask me.
