Memos

April 22, 2019: After a 5-year hiatus [GfW46 was released on 2014-03-21], Goldfish Warning! Episode 47 is now almost ready to release! The exact status is like this: the episode was fully translated, edited, timed, almost fully typeset (except the voice-actor credits in ED are still missing), almost fully QCed (except there are 5 or 6 lines that are not finalized). A release candidate (RC3) should be ready within a few days, and after final checking, maybe that file will be actually released. If QCers want to change anything in RC3, we are going to have to make RC4, but that will only take a few days, just changing a few words in the script. So GfW47 will be probably released at the end of April or the beginning of May.

PS (April 22, 22:51 UTC): The script has been finalized. Now, the only remaining things to do are: 1) ED Credits, 2) a few, additional sign subs, 3) encode/mux, 4) final checking, and 5) release it. Most probably we can release GfW47 soon, and perhaps we can continue (restart) GfW after all!

April 23, 2019: GfW47 RC3 is ready (encoded and muxed). This may or may not become the final version that we will release. Anyway we should be able to release 47 real soon, within a week or so, unless a huge comet hits the Earth :D

April 26, 2019: We’re doing RC4 after all. This should be the final version.

April 29, 2019: RC4 has been encoded. There is a more than 50% chance that this file will be the final version and will be released in a few days.

PS (April 29, 14:15 UTC): We’re going to have to re-encode RC4 for some technical reason; a one- or two-day delay is expected. The release date will be in early May.

May 1, 2019: RC5 has been encoded. There is a more than 90% chance that this file will be released in a few days.

May 3, 2019: While final-checking, a typo and a grammatical error were found in RC5 (“belive” for believe, etc.). We’re going to have to fix them, and so the release will be slightly delayed.

PS (May 3, 22:12 UTC): The problems have been fixed!

May 4, 2019 (20:20 UTC): We have released Goldfish Warning! 47. This episode has a few interesting aspects. You can read Translator’s Notes after you watch it!

Technical note about the value of the BPS tag for a Vorbis track

BPS tags for Eps. 38–46 (non-standard) and for Eps. 47–54 (standard-compliant)

Starting from Goldfish Warning!, Episode 38, our MKV files have BPS (bit-per-second) tags for audio tracks. In the old MKV files for Eps. 38–46, the value of BPS is based on the source file size. For example, let’s say the audio file vorbis.ogg (to be muxed into an MKV) is 15,199,187 bytes (= 15,199,187 × 8 bits) in size and 1448.447 seconds in length, then the file-size-based bitrate is 15,199,187 × 8 / 1448.447 ≈ 83947 [bits/sec] and so our BPS tag would have said 83947. OggEnc also reports Average bitrate: 83.9 kb/s in this case.

However, according to the official Tag Specifications of matroska.org, the tag BPS is defined as the average bits per second excluding “headers and any container overhead.” As such, a simple calculation like above is not standard-compliant, because the size of an Ogg Vorbis file includes the overhead of the Ogg container, in addition to the actual (“raw”) audio data. Moreover, after our release of Ep. 46 (in March, 2014), mkvmerge was updated (in May, 2014) and now it automatically writes BPS tags (whose values should be more correct, as mkvmerge is an official tool coded by one of the main Matroska devs).

Therefore, in the new MKV file Goldfish Warning! (DVD x264) - 47 [h-b] (190503A6).mkv, the audio track has a standard-compliant BPS tag. In the above example, the BPS value automatically written by mkvmerge is 82847 (≈ 82.8 kb/s), instead of 83947 (≈ 83.9 kb/s). In other words, the audio bitrate value in BPS now looks slightly smaller than what is commonly called “bitrate” — the meaning of BPS is now different from that of the BPS tags in our old MKV files.

Custom tag BPS_OGG added in Ep. 47

Just in case someone needs it, the backward-compatible (non-standard) value 83947 — the bitrate based on the Ogg Vorbis file size — has also been stored in the same MKV file, as a newly-added custom tag BPS_OGG for the audio track.
