That’s true, however the original uploader of that torrent did promise a upgrade in quote “many months from now” back in 2011, so that makes me wonder whatever happened?
I’m that uploader and I dropped by this page to say that I am currently working on the upgrade set. I know, finally! I didn’t have the material I need to do what I wanted to do back then, but now that has all changed. Therefore, I make a promise, I keep that promise. So far, I have finished the first 3 episodes. I had to go back several times and revise the episodes in the past week and I am at a point where I am satisfied with what I have to work with. Right now, I have those episodes on YouTube for you to preview. However, those uploads are in 1080p and while they look good, they have framing flaws and I will not be keeping them. I prefer to keep this series in 640x480 at 8,000 kbps. It looks identical in quality and the big difference is the file size (2gbs roughly less per episode). Plus, the framing is correct and I just prefer it to look the way it was intended with no black border.
Anyways, hope this renews interest in this series and I hope to make some people happy with this project. There are some episodes that will unfortunately not be complete as there is currently no sourced English audio for some scenes. However, I believe that I have all of the scenes for every episode in the 26 count series. That includes bumpers and title screens. The purpose of this project is to reconstruct the series using the best possible quality that’s out there. Some episodes will look better than others but I will do my best. The music videos are all going to be restored where they need to be (I already have those downloaded). Also, the show is going to be assembled as closely as possible to its original broadcast airings. I’m ignoring as many of the re-airing changes as possible. I have a great source now to use as reference.
The original set I put together 9 years ago is garbage now. I won’t be using anything from it and recommend you who have it toss it when this project is complete.
