Greetings, old and new Da Capo fans! We are proud to present you our first Da Capo III release, the Pre-Air Special. This actually aired on 30th December on the web, and 2nd January on Niconico.
We luckily found a proper 720p raw for this, and Majin3 did some awesome stuff to make it look great.
The first part of this will take the old fans a trip down memory lane. It has the openings and endings of all Da Capo TV series aired till date, making it 8 songs in total. We hope you’ll enjoy the nostalgia! For people who haven’t seen any DC anime before, this will be a very good occassion to sing along to those classic tracks!
The second part aka Part B, summarizes episode 1 of the anime. It’s a good starting point to the DCIII anime which will start airing on TV shortly.
This feels like it bridges the gap between the old DC series and this new DCIII.
Also, this has 10 songs in total. All of them are k-timed (which is why this took so long to release) for your enjoyment.
So, the credits list:
Translator, Timer: sm2345
Typesetter: Assasin_Cross (I seriously love this guy’s typesets)
Styling: Virus123 (styled and edited 8 songs in a single day, hell yeah), Assasin_Cross
Song TL: We used ASF’s translation for DC II and DC II SS OPs and EDs and the DC OP, Rikka, sm2345, TK
Ktiming: sm2345, TK, Rikka
QC: Naoya, Treize, sm2345
We know episode 1 has aired, and its translation is already done. We’re debating whether or not to release a v0 with the Nico crap 396p raw or wait for the full fledged 720p awesomeness. In the latter case, ep 1 will likely get released on Monday evening UTC.
Scratch that. Episode 1 is encoding, expect it around Sunday late night UTC, due to changed circumstances.
Scratch those too. 9001 Typesets and editor got unexpectedly caught up in a weekend trip will be delaying this to around Monday evening UTC, I think.
Nevertheless, enjoy the snack~
