It has been a while, hasn’t it!
did I really last scanlate something in May—
My coursework has certainly kept me busy… but I did get something out of it, at least, as I get to do a study program in Japan Jan/Feb next year!
I intend to make the most of it, and enjoy all the T&B I can with my limited budget :)
I’ve just finished clearing out my inbox, so if you sent me something and I haven’t responded, it seems to have gotten lost in the system, so please do send again if you would like.
2 anon messages under the jump, as I don’t want to take up too much dashboard space.

Harmonized Finale — Unison Square Garden
Taken from TIGER&BUNNY -The Rising- SUPER PRELUDE event.
I couldn’t get perfect broadcasting/recording quality, so I apologise for the couple of pauses and skipping.
Batch Letter Deadline (date by which we need to receive all letters by): FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4th 2013
Letter? What letter?
We have created a template petition letter that you can print out and fill out! There is space for additional comments. So explain your love for the series! Draw your…
Addition from the petition organiser:
If you are in the US, please include which coast you would like to see the movie at. Or which major city with independently owned theater if you are not in the US. Both US and non-US letter writers, please try to include theater name and contact info for that theater.
And my own addition:
In Australia, Siren Visual holds the distribution license for T&B. We could possibly contact them about this too.
Specifically regarding potential screenings of the Rising, SV is a Melbourne-based company, so if we want to mention a specific theatre maybe something in Melbourne would be more likely to get noticed?
I’m not really familiar with theatres in Melbourne, so I am not sure what to suggest however, a place called Cinema Nova has had anime film screenings before.
(Please excuse the unrelated to my usual content post, but I have a couple of Aussie friends following me here who I thought might get a kick out of this!)
I was watching the ABC News 24 live stream tonight, of course, and this happened.
You can’t really see the time, but it was about 7:14 ie. at least 30 minutes before the result of the ballot was known.
THE HOST WAS LITERALLY IN THE MIDDLE SAYING “This is too important to rely on gossip, so we will wait to make any announcements.” WHILE THIS WAS IN THE BACKGROUND.
Apparently nobody told the graphics department.

[Notes: I almost like this better than the real alternate ending! :>
For those of you who haven’t seen it around, last month the Japanese T&B fandom became aware of a certain smartphone app — it’s a fishing game, the just happens to involve some rather suspiciously familiar-looking characters.
The cat is the main character, and he must catch the fish to give to the other characters.
One of these characters is Mister Shells, the one with the beard, who is trying to catch fish to feed his ill daughter. Unfortunately, he can only ever manage to catch shells… ;~;
Another is the Lemon Prince, the curly-haired blonde. He is found washed up on the shore, and is suffering from memory loss, and isn’t sure of who he is.
And so the story progresses from there, it’s a very cute little game. If anyone is interested in seeing some screenshots of the game, I took a bunch as I played through it, there’s some on my twitpic.]

[Notes: I think I spent more time thinking of those nicknames than anything else! Hopefully Kotetsu’s one should be obvious (“Let’s go halfsies” should scan almost the same as “Kaburagi”) but I think the reference in Barnaby’s one might only be familiar to Australians ”orz It references a political slogan, “All the way with LBJ”.]
Wake up to this sad screen: T&B mobage, also known as Road of Hero, is closing today. ;_; AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAああああああアアアア-
Luckily, emme and I have been doing treasure hunting
or more like missionary work. She has collected all the mobage card images  and most of the audio (here), while I decided to take a screenshot of each card, so you can see the dialogues/abilities/names of them.
You can download them here.
I managed to grab several other screens of the game too, I might post them later when I have more time and have them sorted out.
I also warmly recommend you to go and follow her great translation blog dedicated to these very same RoH cards! Some of the cards are pure gold. Mobagaming
Thank you so much for the screenshots, Stalk-tan! They will be very helpful
and I like having everything archived.
And a little something about the ending screen — that See Ya! image has been the header since they announced that game was closing about a month ago, and when it first came out, there was a comment on 2ch to the effect of:
"It looks like the door is about to close behind them… they are going to go off to have adventures now, just the two of them."
Have fun, you guys, until we hopefully meet again ;_;
The T&B mobage closed this afternoon, very sadly.
But, to soften the blow somewhat, I did grab all 383 card images, and some accompanying audio.
Organised by category (Wild, Cool and Brave), and for dual type cards, they should be found in both categories.
Note regarding file names — I tried to use names that I thought would make them identifiable while keeping them short, however I realise just because it made sense to me at the time, doesn’t mean it does to everyone else ^^” If you can’t figure out which cards some of the labels refer to, ask and I’ll let you know.
Unfortunately, I don’t have all the audio, as to access the lines from the Card Gallery/My Page require you to have those cards in your possession :( If anyone could help fill in the gaps of what I was unable to get, it would be very much appreciated!
I also didn’t grab all the miscellaneous lines from other characters, as I ran out of time. It’s mostly T&B with some of the others in there too.
Card Gallery audio — these are the dialogues/monologues, that accompany the card information in the Card Gallery for the 5 and 6 star cards.
Battle audio — Each 5 and 6 star card has two voiced lines when it is the ‘leader’ card of either you or your opponent.
Training audio — Character based, when training cards there is a line for the one you are training and the one of the ones you are partnering it with. (Incidentally, that one line outside the folders is by web address a training line, but it’s never one I got myself, it’s just been linked a few times on 2ch so I included it.)
My Page audio — When viewing the summary page, along with your leader card, 3 random cards from the ones in your possession will be there, and one of those 4 will have a lines. The 6, 5 and some 3 star ones are voiced.
I made a post a while back, to gather the translations of the card information and dialogues I had tweeted. I have since done a lot more, and as last time’s tumblr text post wasn’t the best way to clearly present this information, I think I’ll do it a bit differently this time.
My idea is I will create a sideblog for this, so I can organise the translations in a clear manner by relevant card, while not spamming everyone here.
Also, I can eventually use it post things for other mobile games.
The sideblog can be found at: mobagaming.tumblr.com
No posts as of yet, but that will change once I’ve gone through my twitter archive.
The new BL AV is coming out in a couple of weeks, and I just noticed some preview screens were put up on the website.
The website blocks overseas IPs, so I thought I would extract them so everyone can see easier. There are some others, but these are the ones I grabbed.
Apparently, Agnes is involved. The summary put emphasis on the fact they got a female director (who happens to be a fan of the pairing), so I’m wondering if Agnes is played by her.
ETA: correct file has now been uploaded, sorry for the wrong one!

[Notes: Another 22 page story, zipped on MF for convenience. And a small translation note for the second last page, Kotetsu is laughing when he says “Only on occasion”, because the word for “occasionally” can also mean “on the balls”.]
