    Finally, a #cyborg009 update: the 5 episodes where the dub 5.1 track was unsalvagable has been upconverted from the stereo mix by NYAV Post! Hopefully you won't be able to tell which ones! Now getting new subtitles made. All restoration is pretty much done.

      Is this the version that was most accurate to the manga?
      I'm a gamer first, fanboy second. :D

        The first run of episodes 1-26 on Cartoon Network with the swearing intact would have been a good reference to see which dialog takes were used initially. I remember attempting to record it back when it aired, but the channel was having frequent outages during the hours Toonami ran. No recordings of this broadcast seemed to have turned up in the wild.
        When these episodes reran, CN started censoring the show. The latter half of the series didn't premiere until months later and by then they weren't letting anything slip by.

          Minor #Cyborg009 update: Final tweaks before authoring. Menus being designed. Subtitles about half done. The masters for the 2nd half of the show looked like butt, but happy to say it cleaned up OK. Not perfect, but much better.

          It's definitely too late to make it out in time for xmas, but early 2019 is looking quite do-able, barring any other weirdness. (and this project has been SO weird. Approaching the 1 year mark.)

          Oh! I should also mention, since a few people here expressed interest, there will be an essay/gallery on the disc about the entire restoration process we went through.

            OH! I'll definitely be interested in the essay/gallery portion!

              Some #cyborg009 updates... Still waiting on subtitles, but the rest of the disc is really coming together. Hey look, bonus features! (83 images in that art gallery!)

              Whoops, haha, art gallery was a last-minute addition that wasn't in that mock-up, but trust me, it's there![

              Also a reminder that maybe all the scuzz from analog SD video might be a blessing in disguise... LOOK at this direct-from-workflow screenshot we got. NO anti-aliasing at all.

              One more little #cyborg009 peek... I re-rendered all the English credits in the style of the original Toonami run. Unfortunately two images are low-res because only good source was 4x3 LBX. (Note that only credited VAs are included... didn't want to step on any toes.)

                Exciting! After a full year in production, finally shipping #cyborg009 off for QC today! Hopefully it all checks out OK! (I usually have a nice printed label but my printer is being a dick today)

                Preorders don?t go up until disc passes checks by the replicator and the packaging is approved by Japan. Soonest this could go to replicators is 1st week of Dec. Be patient, it?s coming.

                448 kbps (5.1) for both EN and JP tracks.

                Minor corrections: original aspect is 1.77:1 (the full screen airings were pan & scan), and it?s 480i as it mixes frame rates like crazy. Early digipaint, ya know?

                  Quick unfortunate #Cyborg009 update... our QC came back with a ton of other tape drop-outs that have to be patched, an excruciatingly long process. After that we need to do another round of QC. It'll be a little while longer.

                    Better to delay the release and do a quality release the first time around rather than rush it out the door with a ton of problems and make fans angry later. We can all wait a little longer for a quality release.

                      Yeah... that's what QC is for. Doesn't really surprise me that there are still a bunch of kinks to work out since you had to cobble the audio together from so many different sources for different episodes...

                        Aaand second round of Cyborg 009 is off to be checked. Man I can?t wait for this to be done. What a freaking albatross of a project t.

                        Had to re-encode a handful of episodes? video, all of the dub audio and re-render the subs. The dub was delivered with completely uneven levels and some obvious mixing errors, some of which couldn?t be fixed. Very sloppy work, and Sony probably paid a fortune for it.
