Happy spring break for those of us in school. This will be my last one, I certainly hope. I made a small update to Nandub_OnePass with a new feature called OP/ED saver. If you don't know what OP/ED is, that's the opening and closing sequences, another word this is for the credit scenes in movie. I added it out of my own need when I noticed that vertical scrolling credits were adding huge oversize. This feature will ensure that such scenes will stay within the bitrate. See the Nandub_OnePass page.
Review: Patapata hikosen no boken
This was a five star show early on and it deserved it. It had all the element of a classic show with very good animation and story. But around midpoint, the quality staggered greatly to the point of ridiculousness. This seemed to be the effect of the production being handled over the "east sea". This continued up to the last episode, where it changed drastically with superbly emotional ending. Granted, most of it was a repeat of some very highly known shows of the past (FBC, Laputa, and even Saber Marionette J or Majo no Takkyubin), but it was solid nevertheless. Good to see a shot at a classic style adventure show for once in a long while.
