  1. Hello guys, I’ve just stumbled upon your site and I find it very cool. Really surprised that your mkvs sizes are that small and the quality are still top notch. But I’ve got some question since I am quite new to 10bits encoding. Whats the difference between the animes that you provide here then in other sites, besides than the sizes of course. I’ve been trying to compare the quality, but I can’t say for sure “I blame my eyes..” . And I saw some people mentioned miniMkvs, first time hearing it.

    Either way, I love the dl speed 😀 Keep up the good work! I just might donate in August or September when I get my paypal.

    1. http://wiki.bakabt.me/index.php/Hi10P

      Here’s a great write-up, but basically:
      “In really basic terms, more data is used to define color which means there is less banding for a smaller file size. It’s an H.264 profile which uses 10 bits of information to represent color. It’s a huge improvement because there is less file size, which in the long run saves bandwidth.”

      As for why you should come here, I believe the quality, file sizes, and fast direct download speed truly speak for themselves!

      1. Thx for the quick reply. I think I’ve got a better grasp of understanding on this new thing for me 😀

        But the difference in your mkvs and the other out there is ofc the noticeably low file sizes. Does this in any other way also decrease the quality? Sorry if I’m being a nuisance here asking stupid noob questions ._.

        But other than that, yes. Your dl speed, quality(though which I’m not that sure comparing it with others), awesome size, and of course, the nice staffs around here(unlike other fansubs group which I won’t even bother to mention heh). I will definitely support you guys! I’m going to recommend your site to my friends. 😀

        1. Haha, no worries. I’m on an all-nighter, so I’ve got plenty of time on my hands.

          Check this out.

          Non-mouse over is 10bit, mouse-over is 8bit. The 8bit doesn’t have the depth of shades that the 10bit has, it almost looks like a splotchy sky in the 8bit.

          When it comes to file size and quality, that’s generally dictated by how much time someone spends encoding a file, as well as the settings used for the encode. I have personally stacked every episode I have encoded up with the source files and I haven’t noticed any drop of video quality. In fact, in most cases it has been better due to there being no banding.

          Think of it like winrar archiving. If you select very fast, you’re gonna get a file that’s pretty close in size to the original source. If you select very slow, you’re giving the codec the time it needs to properly convert the file into the medium you want.

          The only negative to miniMKVs are sound quality. You won’t find FLAC files on miniMKVs because… well the file wouldn’t be mini anymore haha. Now, I say negative, but honestly, unless you’re an audiophile, it’s not very noticeable. It’s like listening to Pink Floyd with an mid price-range headset, then slapping on some Bose headphones. You’re gonna hear things that weren’t there before, or maybe certain sounds a little clearer, but nothing that turns the audio into a pile of poop haha.

          I hope that helps, but at this point I’m running on Cherry Coke and Baklava.

          (As an example, I just re-encoded Kiss x Sis from CoalGirls that was bloated to ~500mb per episode because of 8bit + FLAC sound down to ~60mb per episode. I have two headsets and the FLAC had a bit more depth to the sound. That’s it. I prefer the video in my encodes compared to their 8bit.)

        2. Thank you so much for the quick reply yet again! Your explanation really helped a bunch. Especially when you mentioned that encoding are kinda similar like winrar archiving. So in other words, you take more time encoding than usual hence the low size mkvs yet compact and without harming the video’s quality(though you did mentioned the nerfed audio, but I really don’t mind since I am a being that relies on my visual ability *typical stereotype male if you know what I mean lol*). Well now thats clear, I wish you guys all the best and may this site holds up as long as possible. Hi10 Anime FTW!

          *And ofc I will donate as soon as I get my paypal!

  2. Hey guys I love your site since my internet speed is crappy, and you provide the best downloads for file-size, next to MiniTheatre from where I usually download as well.

    I don’t know where would be the correct section to ask this but could you encode Cardcaptor Sakura 1080p to something like 150 mbs each, or your usual amount? or even a 720p 10bit version would be great. It shouldn’t have much of a big file-size outpuut (because of the art/colours of that time?) Anyways, I bet no one would deny this as I’ve seen no one hating CCS so far, its everyone’s childhood! Please reply, thanks!

    1. Only speaking for myself, I personally couldn’t encode this series for a long time as my hard drive space is constantly between 10 gigs to 20 gigs empty. The BD rips on bakabt from CoalGirls are 54 gigs total. If I were able to buy a new HD or another 50-100 DVD-R spool, I’d certainly be willing, especially if I didn’t have any other series to encode, but as a NEET, I’m pretty sorry out of luck. Maybe the other encoders will have some good news for you.

      As a side note, maybe we should open up a requests section.

    1. This is a silly request, I’m always encoding from ordered chapter sources, when it is possible, file sizes are lower, quality is better… if you can’t play them install a better player, like MPC-HC, or PotPlayer, and problem is solved.

      1. I get what you mean, and I totally understand why those sources made ordered chapters in the first place too.
        But I have to disagree if you say MPC-HC and Pot Player are better players just because they are capable of playing ordered chapters. It’s just not many (other) players support this feature.
        Different people have different preference for their animes, and this is just one of those many, so no offense. I appreciate the encodes here.

  4. Guys! Can you encode Katekyo Hitman Reborn with 720p quality? Other torrent uploaders have already uploaded it but it’s only 360p or 720p, I hope you can find better quality than that with 100 mb-ish size? Please. Thank you. I really love and appreciate this site as I’m currently downloading each eps of Fairy Tail. 🙂

    1. We already did it in 2012 “What is your view on ordered chapters?” and we had 558 total voters:

      • I love them, ordered chapters are the best: 242 votes
      • I don’t care, but if I had to choose I’d prefer ordered chapters: 98 votes
      • I don’t care, but if I had to choose I’d prefer the old way: 89 votes
      • Please stay with the previous way of releasing: 129 votes

      In 2012 ordered chapters was a new feature, so many people not understanding it. Now in 2014 everyone knows how to play mkv files with ordered chapters, so a new poll will only result in more people voting to keep ordered chapters, my magical skills foresee an 80%+ approval.
      Another win for oc.

      1. Ahaha . . . well probably yeah . .
        .
        .
        then why not make one again to see the magical skills of yours will result to RanD senpai @___@
        .
        .
        for fun only @___@ making another one will not hurt right ? . .

        1. doubting my magical skillz?! ore wa mahou shoujo da!!
          well, maybe later before the next summer, since the other poll was posted on june 2012 iirc.
