Thank you for responding to the friend request. I've mainly been on here to track what I've seen for anime over the years and occasionally post some of my reviews. But haven't until just recently made more of an effort to post on here in the forums.

Hmmmm. Are you by any chance Zalis116 from ANN?

Hello. Lately i was posting much about Media Blasters. It is not as popular as all other anime distributors in america today but they are active and still open for business.

additionally, there are currently a small capacity. they laid off 60% of their staff in the 2010s after it was almost went out of business. Possibly, 11-50 employees then, probably smaller now
I made the unofficial pages to share insights, opinions, historical moments and other things.

It just goes to show how much stuff nobody bothered to enter over the years, especially after the bubble popped at the end of the 2000s (which ironically is when I got into anime, November 2008). The number of shows from my own collection that had stuff missing was ridiculous, even some stuff from the bubble years, such as UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie S1 and S2, Michel (granted, that's an obscure Korean animation), and the first Stratos 4 OVA. It's also now exceedingly rare for people to add Blu-ray/DVD-specific credits (Ex: BD/DVD Authoring) these days, even FUNimation commentary info is now rarely getting entered.

Thanks for answering this stuff. The thinpak information is quite helpful as I've been also doing stuff with's database (adding missing releases/adding info for existing ones). I've used their bundle feature to indicate which ADV releases re-used discs or not (Ex: Noir). It's usually easy to tell with the 2-cour shows because the disc count is usually different, that's not the case for the 1-cour shows.

Interesting to hear how the graphic design credit worked on Princess Tutu. Now I wonder if any of my other ADV singles with reversible-covers were like that, probably not. Also, if you don't mind, can you check the disc credits screens on those? What does the credit say regarding DVD Authoring/Production? M.O.F.C. might be for just Volume 1, and there might be a DVD Producer credit for just Volume 1 (Often it'll say "DVD Production" instead). Also I just noticed, there was a 10 month gap between Volume 1 and Volume 2. The heck happened there? Might be a reason why I've heard the series unfortunately didn't sell well for ADV, erratic/unusual release schedules can cause problems (hey there Cardcaptor Sakura for Geneon).

BTW, saw your error report and it's actually quite easy to add more specific info for something that is already on an entry, that being precisions. You basically enter the same info that is already there, but then fill in the precision box with the specific info. After you hit "Verify Information", it'll then tell you something like "and is already credited with [insert task here] but with precision""", you check the "Add anyway" box, and then voila. That's how I've been able to add episode-specific info for many shows. Note how there's 2 dots on some of these, that's because I added precisions to most of them.

[Edit]Here's me adding that precision in action so you can see how it works.
[Edit 2]Looks like I won't need the black screen credit rolls for Kokkoku as they'll be hitting HIDIVE, the disc credits screen will still be appreciated though.

The lack of a graphic design credit on the back isn't surprising, FUNimation sadly doesn't do back cover graphic design credits, though they used to sometimes on releases with the old FUNimation Productions logo. So, there's no disc credits nor "Additional Post-Production" credits? Looks like someone indeed went with assumptions yet again... When will people learn? If the info is not there, don't enter it, you could end up being very wrong (I've caught multiple instances of this). As for my entering all this stuff, you're welcome, I don't want this info to be lost. Say what you will about ANN, but the Encyclopedia is the best feature of it. When I was trying to look up some info last year, and then noticed a bunch of stuff missing, I decided to go to great lengths to fix it, especially after I finally took more interest in who worked on all these shows and releases over the years. The amount of stuff I've found missing is ridiculous and absurd. Like I found multiple things that were missing for Maburaho for 15 years, some staff changes on Paranoia Agent that were missing for nearly 16 years, missing stuff for Daphne in the Brilliant Blue for 15 years, and the list goes on and on... Also, it's a shame hardly anyone is entering many things anymore, it's not exactly complicated to do (A tutorial). Discotek (NJ_ has helped fixed these), Media Blasters (late 2000s/early 2010s), NISA, RightStuf, and Sentai entries are the worst.

As for your collection, I took a deep look, and oh boy at how much you have for releases that are missing info on ANN. This will be quite a list... It would be an absolutely enormous help though. Shame with much of the Maiden Japan and Sentai stuff, I can't fix them because HIDIVE has the credits cutoff on anything that was streaming on TAN prior to 2018 unless it has a dub (only the dub streams will have the credits). Also, which ADV Thinpaks do you own that re-use the singles discs (those would be the ones with the extras)? Any with the extras stripped I'd want the disc credits screen, I've been entering that info from my collection (I've got 16 ADV Thinpaks that stripped the extras). Also, for anything FUNimation, the disc credits screen, I'd need both the Blu-ray and DVD as the info is rarely exactly the same on both of them, it's why you often see things separated by Blu-ray and DVD. On late 90s, very early 2000s ADV discs, the disc credits are sometimes found in the scene select screen for some reason.

Really, really big list below. No rush on this info. The stuff bolded with ANN links are the things with entries that are virtually empty that I can't fix as I physically need the discs.

You deserve a cookie for that categories update you posted in the club. Even though I would like to do stuff like that, can't find the time to do it.

I had so much fun going on your profile and typing shows in the search bar to see what you've watched over the years, I only started watching this year but I hope when I've been watching anime for as long as you I can still enjoy it as much as you are :)

Hi i see your very knowledgeable of how certain video's work in terms of conversion ratio and or how quality is established, be it interlaced or progressive when your looking at Blu-ray Vs up-scaled versions. Can you briefly explain some of the mechanics and information of how this process works. I usually download most anime through "horribleSubs" fansub cause now a days thats bout all you can gain access to unless your using a private tracker. But i usually download 1080p but from what i understand is these are usually up-scaled versions and not "TRUE" bluray-quality like purchased blu-ray disk. How do you determine rather or not your actually getting something that is not up-scaled and true Blu-ray.

I still prefer up-scaled converted video's over some of the streams. Hell even the 1080p horrible sub conversions or utw still are at higher quality then CR streams.

I can usually always tell from a 1080p HorribleSubs, that it looks a bit more grainy and the clarity is not as crisp as watching one of my purchased and bought Blu-ray anime dvd's on my HD TV. Occasionally i do find some video's that are even at a higher premium quality but im such a novice with this kind of stuff as you can probably tell. So i need some education if you don't mind. :P
