The Sorcery-Party's Portal

Dedicated to watch, analyze, research about, curate and provide fansubs to retro animated obscurities, I go by the name of Ziusudra. For the very best or the very worst, join me in exploring the concealed side of the medium!

~The Sorcery-Party's Commandments~

1: Sacred geometry is above everything: tonal consistency, production design coherence, dedication to pivotal theme's development, writing not entirely biased to anyone, presence of a dramatic stake or a believable struggle, thorough exploration of already established plot elements, optimal use of characters (including secondary cast), no air time padding (filler aside in particular cases), no time reset or consequence erasing, balanced respect of Chekhov's gun theory, pre-designed triggers... These are ideally what you're looking for in a quality anime.
- 2: You dedicate yourself to productions which time forgot in high priority.
- 3: You are more lenient in your appraisal of them, for fate already hasn't been too kind to them. Overhyped shows, on the contrary, are to be more rigorously judged for they're showcasing the medium in the public eye.
- 4: Unlike hipsters, you don't praise something solely because it's underhyped or known only to you. You launch effort to make minor gems or diamonds in the rough more known (review writing, discussions...) Sharing is caring. Be a decent supporter.
- 5: You always value versatility of concepts, or are curious about an eccentric production pattern (for instance, if JC Staff executed a Police Drama instead of the perpetual Ecchi).
- 6: Always respect art styles, even very dated ones. Unless they're tonally jarring, obstacles for the readability of action or have uneven quality breaking immersion, you give it a pass. It's not a decisive factor, unlike visual aspect of storytelling (Mimesis). Don't be a shallow pretty color drone.
- 7: A member of the sorcery party is a completionnist. No drop. No going through long franchise as an afterthought: it goes against the concern of second commandment. First impression watching doesn't engage anyone in completion, that's the only acceptable exception.
- 8: You don't only hunt for the very best, but also the very worst to satisfy your intellectual curiosity. Being a garbage connoisseur isn't a shameful thing as long as you don't value it over sacred geometry.
- 9: You participate in fansubbing uncovered titles if you can.
- 10: "Retro always wins" is your motto. If it's been done well in modern times, chances are that an older title outdoing it exists. It's at least right for certain departments. Even if proven wrong, it still represents a valuable experience to think about.

My Discord Server

My main place of stay. Along with a few select partners, we coordinate efforts to locate and provide subtitles to vintage anime, some of projects being uncovered to this day. It is a place suited for more general talk, as well.

Hi, just got curious do you actually understands japanese and sub it? I was watching the old Haikara-san...from the torrent
PxHC Jul 23, 4:47 PM
hi, saw your comments on subs fucking where club, I made a thread about AI subs, have you tried using such tools before? check the thread there
Rage_Beat06 Jul 12, 9:43 PM
hey theres a new dungeon master guide for ya :
VBayer Jun 17, 7:54 PM
Oh, that was a more detailed answer than I expected haha, thank you. To be honest, I haven't searched much about it, but it looks like an interesting OVA. I tried to find the movies as well, but apparently they were never translated. Probably the most I know of Fujikawa is Windaria, I also know a bit of Wandering Sun but never got around to watching it. And I just realized that you're the same Ziusudra who comments on videos of a certain youtuber, nice to find you here!

bruh you wanna play the excel saga board game:

Sadly there is no menchi token
Rage_Beat06 Jun 13, 2:35 PM
Lol, the art in that game is amazing.
I work with a gaming archive discord and they send me stuff. I got another dungeon master login to put up...
I just need to edit my scans.
Rage_Beat06 Jun 13, 2:09 PM
ya, dont forget to take some rest days, its always good to do that

This is my main project:
I just archive things that arent easily findable again...
I also own a ton of physical media that Ive been archiving.
Rage_Beat06 Jun 13, 1:43 PM
I didnt know you were working on others things. Ill have to go check them all out.

I know a little japanese but i cant translate well enough... so Im glad there are others out there that can.
Rage_Beat06 Jun 13, 1:18 PM
ya, i give alot of stuff a try. I love me some 90s and 2000s mainly. But the older stuff is fun to see. Thank you for your hard work in subbing that UFO one.

Seeing and reading your profile I knew exactly what you liked in artistic mirroring and the beauty of the symmetrical balance.
