I believe you'll find ZUM's remux is better: http://zum.ohtori.org/2012/03/shoujo-kakumei-utena-adolescence-mokushiroku. It has EnterTheBlog's video, COR's commentary and dub tracks, and nicely styled subtitles.
I did vaguely remember seeing that release on nyaa awhile back, and I guess the main thing against it is that it'd be nice to have the original AC3s instead of COR's low-bitrate transcodes. Though I guess it wouldn't matter for the commentary, since it's mainly talking. Of course, if EtB had just included those audio tracks to begin with, everything would be a lot simpler.
Anyway, I deleted a few of the more unlikely items from the first post, so here's a few more:.hack//Twilight
B-A's is XviD with ear-numbing 55-60 kbps AAC.Vampire Princess Miyu (TV)
I certainly wouldn't mind taking down the old .ogm AniMecha version, once Al_Sleeper offers it. Imo this could also replace the single-audio anime.fin
release, which is just the DVD subs hardsubbed as-is. (Not listing the OVA as E-D's is unlikely to be better than either G_P or OnDeed.)Maid-sama
Imo the Eclipse+FFFPeeps version should stay as Group D for better typesetting and other fansub considerations, but E-D's represents the only low-res disc release with animation fixes.The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya
E-D = only Group C dual-audio option.Rozen Maiden Oveurture
(single-audio / fansub)
Rozen Maiden Oveurture was not dubbed until recently. Currently, the only option aside from E-D is C-W, which is vobsub-only and lower video bitrate.Nyoron Churuya-san
No other Group C dual-audio options. (And why De.us only included the English audio on the 1080p release and not the 720p is beyond me.)Tsukikage Ran
ZX vs. E-D comparison here;
zx also had some missing subtitle lines.MM!
I doubt the R1 subs can beat out Ryuumaru's hilarious script, but if there's any uncensored material, E-D's version would make a nice supplement. Plus it has the specials.K-On!
Same deal as Season 2, E-D = only dual-audio Group C option.Ghost Hound
|| Arigatou (single-audio)
ACX would also be an option here, but it would make sense to replace Arigatou's single-audio version with a DA release, and perhaps get Shinsen's 400p release restored for Group C single-audio.Allison&Lillia
If we're looking for a DVD version to supplement AniYoshi's TV release, E-D's should at least be more complete than the terminally lazy Tamashii release. And supposedly there is a bit of uncensored content, too.Lost Universe
COR's release is low-bitrate audio as usual.Xam'd Lost Memories
Besides, E-D, other Group C DA options include Arigatou (vobsub only) and ACX (unknown specs). If the subs are the same ones used in the PSN version, the GGR SA release
could also be replaced.Kashimashi ~Girl meets girl~
~AA~ is vobsub-only vs. E-D's srt+vobsub. And for some reason we still have the redundant Blitz
single-audio R1 release, possibly because it has .srt subs?Durarara!!
Idk how much esteem CBM's encodes are held in these days. If nothing else, E-D does provide the .srt option and untouched AC3 audio.Banner of the Stars II
Anime-Eternal's is older/XviD, and only 360p.Banner of the Stars I
Roughly the same deal as BotS II, though resolutions are the same. A-Et's audio for pretty much all their releases is 80-90 kbps Vorbis or AAC, as well.Angelic Layer
This would be an indirect v2 as well as an .ogm -> .mkv replacement.Divergence Eve
Anime-MX's is only 400p, with somewhat low (185 kbps AAC)) bitrate for the English 5.1 audio.Divergence Eve: Misaki Chronicles
cLT is only 368p, possibly has the wrong framerate (29.97 when everything else is 23.976 or VFR), and has even lower bitrate (128 kbps AAC) for the 5.1 English audio.Sakura Diaries
LIME was the only uncensored DA version available at the time; it's XviD, vobsub-only and 85 kbs Vorbis.Crest of the Stars
ZX's release is DivX with ~ 80 kbps Vorbis. Additionally, the vobsub option in E-D provides at least some formatting and separation for the signage in this series. This would also be an .ogm -> .mkv replacement.Kurokami
Group C DA is the only version not on BBT. The only other option is ~AA~, and that's vobsub-only and probably hard to obtain.Shin Koihime Musou
Same deal as Otome Tairan, though in this case Commie should be kept as Group D due to subjective differences (chibis!) between the broadcast and disc versions. (Not listing the 1st season as Sentai re-used some failtastic early CR subs.)Hidamari Sketch ***
From what I've seen, Shaft did some super-widescreen stuff that results in more image being present on the disc versions. Though it would be a shame to completely lose Tortoise's, as it's the only non-localized translation.Angel Beats!
Several other Group C DA options exist, such as CBM, RaX (<-both vobsub-only), and ACX, which seems a little bitrate-starved at ~850 kbps. According to AniDB anyway, E-D's release is a BD downscale rather than a DVD-rip. I could also see how well a remux with Doki's 480p release would work.Demon King Demon King
Yet another E-D vs. ~AA~ faceoff. .srt available in E-D, and there wouldn't be too many formatting issues beyond the TL notes in the 1st episode.The Sky Crawlers
Other Group C DA options include CBM (396p), ACX, and COR.Hayate the Combat Butler!
Given reports of poor quality in the R1 DVD release (interlacing issues), I'd hate to see my SS-Eclipse torrent completely replaced. Who knows, perhaps the DVD audio from the SS-Rawako 720p remux would also work with the XviD release and make it into hardsubbed dual-audio .mkvs?
EDIT: 9 more entries added.Doujin Work
At least E-D's wouldn't have untranslated content...Tayutama: Kiss on my Deity
Ayako probably should be left as Group D as it's 576p. But if there is any uncensored content in this series, E-D's release is the only low-res way to get it.Canaan
Unlike ~AA~ and ACX, their competitors in this range, E-D has 5.1 Japanese audio.Tears to Tiara
No other Group C DA releases available.Ninja Nonsense
A questionable proposition, as people may prefer the styled subs in a-S over the .srt/vobsub in E-D. a-S's file sizes are kinda low though, with
Parametric Stereo. Not really what you would want on non-streaming media. But anywho, it's really neither mono nor stereo, more of a middle-ground.
Perhaps a-S's .ass/.ssa files can work with E-D's video?Ushio & Tora
Z~Z is vobsub-only...Code Geass R2
Group C DA is the only option not available on BBT. Beyond E-D, other choices include Arigatou, Z~Z (<- both of which are vobsub-only), and ACX (60 kbps AAC, probably bitrate starved video to achieve CDR/3 size).Ghost Slayers Ayashi
Arigatou is vobsub-only...Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit
See previous entry.
Pretty much everything older is either already on BBT, or has already been considered and decided against.
