how many people would be benefiting this kind of raw animes and such? (minus the Japanese people of course)

to me, youre just adding more work to the quality checkers/admin/moderators here in bakabt where there about more or less 90 torrens pending and most of them are sitting there for almost a year.

For now, this is pointless for me as the reviewers of torrent cant even manage to clear out the offers page, at least if they manage to bring it down to 20s thats good then asking for this kind of thing make sense to me.

for raws, just go to random chinese tracker sites and nyaa. in chinese trackers sites, ive seen some of them provided a actual 1:1 iso image of the anime if youre interested on that one.

the problem with that, polka-chan, is that they tend to disappear within 6 months to a year and are never seen again.

Retention is a bit better than that, and after that it's more an issue of finding someone to pull it of Baidu for you.

- not main stream,
- not popular,
- rare,
- obscure,
- not a big company's work, but a small company's,
I think these conditions are not necessary for anime.
For me accepting raws' point is that anime should be old and never subbed before even if it's popular.
Then they will be replaced by subbed remux or better quality release.

I don't know much about manga.
But I think even with these conditions we will be still flooded. Well, I might be wrong on this.

Check AB. There isn't exactly a flood of raws for older anime titles.

I'm not sure how I feel about raws on BBT... while I do understand the desire from an archival perspective, this seems beyond the scope of BBT.

That said, the ideal solution here is to get them subbed (though I understand how unrealistic that ideal may be in a lot of cases). I'd be interested in translating some random unsubbed anime, potentially. What kind of anime are we even talking about? Can anyone give me a list?

Here is an example: https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=7882
It has a relatively decent HDTV rip and Japanese softsubs. I managed to watch it with autotranslated subs.

That's an unusual example though. The majority of currently unsubbed works don't have any sort of Japanese subs/captions available for them. Even for most of the works where Japanese subs ARE available, it's either as hardsubs (for stuff like the Minna no Uta shorts, Momoiro Crayon, The Four Seasons, etc.) or as imagesubs (i.e., VobSubs or PGS subs).

It also seems unusual in that it is relatively very new (2010). The newest in the linked thread was 2007, iirc, and only a very small number later than 2000. There have been other suggestions in this thread that there are new (and even "popular"?) shows that remain unsubbed... is that actually true?

Yeah, exactly... that's why I don't think it's the best example to be honest. It's also even already been subbed into French, so it's not like it hasn't been translated at all. And I'm planning to translate/sub it anyways (directly from Japanese to English).

As for new shows/works that haven't been translated, there still actually are some. There's a fair number of short-episode shows that haven't been subbed yet, e.g., Sumiko, Boo Boo Boy, LINE TOWN, etc. There are also some recent movies, TV specials, and OVAs that haven't been subbed, e.g. Sinbad; Lupin III: The Italian Game (Japanese closed captions are available for it); Happy ComeCome (it contains a LOT of wordplay, so it poses some interesting translation problems); Sakura Capsule; Cinnamon the Movie; Anata wo Zutto Aishiteiru; all the new Anime Tamago 2016 titles; Omoi no Kakera; Doraemon: Nobita's Space Heroes; Hal no Fue; a bunch of Shimajirou titles, such as Shimajirou to Kujira no UtaAlice in Dreamland; a bunch of Anpanman movies; etc.

I think allowing RAWs for shows that aren't subbed and probably won't be for a while would be nice. It's redudant to upload raws of already subbed series, but this way lot of rare (and in most of the cases, old) anime would be easier awailable. No more downloading RAWs from nyaa with one seeder and overwhelming speed of 2 kb/s. No more dead and currently unavailable series. I have actually too been thinking of suggesting this for some time.

(And it would be time to unleash the more prized part of my archive  :laugh: )


I don't consider hentai rare at all tbh. The last thing on the internet to die will be porn.
Some old unsubbed hentai OVAs are pretty hard to dig out though.

how many people would be benefiting this kind of raw animes and such?
Completionists and file collectors.

Besides that peeps who use external subs in any case. If the person is an archiver like me he/she might want to benefit from file size %100 efficiently. For example:

As long as i can afford x99 platform intel proccessors and dedicated gpu i wont want to use intel i7 because of integrated graphic unit is useless for me.

So im supporting raw torrents at BBT as an option for archivers not only for raws are better than subbed releases in the name of bitrate also for finding things easier:
RAWs from nyaa with one seeder and overwhelming speed of 2 kb/s.
