K-ON! Blu-ray 01 & 02

Hi guys.

So uh K-ON! came out on Blu-ray. We’re bored so we encoded it and put our widescreen scripts (which went through extra editing and QC’ing) on it, and made it available. There’s like two episodes released per month or something, so expect them at that pace. These look far better than the original raws, obviously. That said, we don’t think it is actually 1080p. It’s probably somewhere below that, but it still looks good.

The audio is 384kbps AC3 and the video is approx. 4400kbps for the 1080p version and 2200kbps for the 720p version.
It’s fully softsubbed and chaptered and no hardsubs were used.

01 1080p download: [ Torrent | DDL ]

01 720p download: [ Torrent | DDL ]

02 1080p download: [ Torrent | DDL ]

02 720p download: [ Torrent | DDL ]

As for other series, chances are we won’t be doing anything soon, though knowing us, we might get bored and sub something just for fun.

    Is it only softsubs release (for now and in the future)? I hope so because hardsubbing blu-ray material sucks…

    Anyways, great work!

    720p native?

  3. 3 zip

    anyone else have a slow down problem with 1080p episode one’s flash back about half way in? all of 1 and 2 play just fine except that, don’t know if its me or the episode.

  4. 4 Waryas

    @zip
    that part of the episode is extremely heavy (30mbps) so make sure you’re using CoreAVC and have enough cpu power to decode that part.

  5. 5 Interwebs

    I shall give it a go. Pure awesomeness ^_^

  6. 6 Interwebs

    Oh wait…I forgot my internet sucks. 3 hours to download PER EPISODE. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU…

  7. 7 Desbreko

    So is there not any more detail in the 1080p version compared to the 720p, then, or does 1080p still look better? Would be nice to know without having to download both for comparison.

  8. 8 sucker

    so instead of widescreen k-on episodes you give us bluray? fine by me!

  9. 9 Waddup

    1080p is obviously better. The question is: Can you play it?

  10. 10 kuagelo

    720p??? Man, I was hoping for a bite-sized 480p (running out of disk space)… Then again, 720p is better! thanks!

  11. 11 stAtic

    Awesome, thanks.
    I’m gonna settle with 720p though, since there’s no difference between 720p and 1080p on my 22″ monitor.

  12. 12 fag

    Are the normal widescreen episodes ever coming out? Can’t be arsed with HD.

  13. 13 CoalGuys

    @Desbreko, Waryas said something like “It doesn’t look 1080p. It’s probably 720p, or somewhere between 720p and 1080p, but not actually 1080p.”
    The 1080p would offer a 1:1 pixel ratio when playing on a 1080p TV, though, so I downloaded that one. But honestly, 720p for Blu-ray anime is usually really nice looking, and going to 1080p often isn’t worth the size for me (usually), even in shows that were actually done in 1080p. If you have room for the 1080p and can play it, then there’s no reason not to download it. Otherwise, the 720p still looks great.

    @fag, http://www.ji-hi.net/k-on/CoalGuys/14-dialog7.png or http://coalguys.com/bluray/kon/03.png ? No one in their right mind would sub from TV raws once Blu-ray is available.

  14. 14 fag

    @Coalguys

    Still rather go with the first one, but if you’re not doing it I guess I’ll have to wait until I’ve got a bigger hard-drive.

  15. 15 Hamtaro1234

    CRAZYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY OMG THE QUALITY OF THE ANIME JUST SCREAMS AT YOU!! THANKS FOR SHARING!!

    HAMTARO

  16. 16 あら

  19. 19 A/L

    You guys fucking rock.

  20. 20 K.o.R

    800 megs!? The 1080p RAWS weren’t that big O_O

  21. 21 lul

    @K.o.R
    your penis isnt that big

  22. 22 Detective

    FINALLY BROS

    Glad to see your still kicking

  23. 23 Raven

    Just curious whatever happened to Tears to Tiara? I really like your subs for it, and I hope you will continue to work on it. :)

  24. 24 Navitron

    You guys are awesome more groups need to start doing bluray. :)

  25. 25 gojira

    Is the Bluray region encoded? If not I might get it after all…

  26. 26 Tarball

    @K.o.R: That’s because raw providers are shitty encoders

    @gojira: No, it isn’t region encoded.

  27. 27 Jeff

    The eps look great and sound even better. I noticed the first time they actually play in ep one that the sound is much nicer.

    If you guys wanna sub something for fun I suggest GA. Ayako is holding everyone hostage since they know they are the only ones subbing it. Ep 05 is about to come out and they are still only threatening to release 02.

  28. 28 asuka

    fuck the REGULAR ws eps, the bd rips are fucking WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. 29 spincell

    Why are u so mellow now…. Where did your nigger shit attitude go?!?!

  30. 30 subsfuckingwhere

    Where are my fucking BD-special subs?

  31. 31 Duality

    Hooray for less AIDS DRAMA and more awesome subbing. As I’ve said before, CoalGuys = high quality subbing work.

    Just resist the urge to go crazy again and we’ll grow to love you once more.

  32. 32 Rizo

    Blu-ray… nice. Good job, although i won’t download it, already muxed myself 720p version of this series with your scripts (with some minor editing ofc), but thanks anyway :D

  33. 33 Tolwrath

    During the OP and ED all the subs are in the dead center of the screen, and I’m pretty sure that’s not the right place. I use MPC. Does anyone know how to fix this?

  34. 34 shadow

    Hi, is the ddl link down? cause i keep getting an error from the ddl site.

  35. 35 withheld

    MY 1TB DRIVE JUST CAME IN!

  36. 36 italo

    Oh god, please, make thumbnails out of the k-on screenshots! My firefox almost went into comma to show them!

  37. 37 Jesus

    My eyes came

  38. 38 Anonymous

    OH SHI- can’t wait for this to be done downloading.

  39. 39 prototype.

  40. 40 CaffeineFree

  41. 41 Bob

    Wow! No raging? No swearing? No trolling of other fansubbers?
    Am I on the right website?!!

  42. 42 Bard

    You’re trolls but you doing nice subs. Nuff said.

  43. 43 Yuki

    How I hope that my Monitor can play this awesomeness. Thank you so much! =DDD

  44. 44 Osj

    Thanks! CoalGuys!

  45. 45 cpt. Misumaru Tenchi

    So you are definitely dropping a TV WS versions, I pressume? Unfortunately even 720p with softsubs is too large to play for my AMD 1,3 Ghz, so too bad… :(

  46. 46 vipervoid1

    WHEN U GUYS GOING TO RELEASE THE K-ON! Special – 01 ??

  47. 47 Kalgonium

    The special will be released with the 7th Blu-ray volume, mid-january.

    BTW, thanks for the release, I was hoping for this :D

  48. 48 KKK

    1080p play smoothly on my 1.6 GHz Cerelon laptop
    (well, except for the flashback scene, but 720p is fine with that scene)

  49. 49 nama

    coalguys will you sub the 03 and 04 ?
    your sub cools man

  50. 50 lawlfail

    So you sub to not have fun? Coalguys’ logic fails again NEARLY as bad as their subs.

  51. 51 renmimby

    @’lawlfail’/chihiro
    Try posting in the correct topic before making any judgments on other people’s logic. Asshat.

  52. 52 jeffng9

    hm… nice screen shot i can make it as my wallpaper~
    mind to do me another favour? can you screen shot the whole band for me and ssend it to me? ^^

  53. 53 revo

    are you guys going to sub episode 3 & 4?

  54. 54 eat shit

    What the fuck happened to coalguys?

  55. 55 Hazzychan

    Do we have to switch to Frostii/THORA?

  56. 56 LIER

    @Eat Shit
    R.I.P because lost in war after declare war again chiriro 2 season ago.

  57. 57 jeff

    wmpc says i cannot render file, is there a codec available that i can use to view this or, is it because i dont have a bluray player on my computer.

    + im probably too stupid to figure it out on my own so im asking :p

  58. 58 prototype.

    are you guys subbing ep 3 and 4 or what?

    it doesn’t help that you guys are keeping to yourselves and not telling us anything

  59. 59 ProjectW

    whats up coalguys what have you guys been doing lately

  60. 60 sacundim

    The video quality in the 720p is awesome. However, the audio in this Bluray version actually sounds worse than the older versions. It’s very clean, but the dynamic range has been compressed a lot.

  61. 61 Pajis

    Its a real pity that you people dont continue, please do it your job is awesome (even better than chihiro) so dont die.

  62. 62 Pajis

    Ok sorry, i’ve read oyur irc

  63. 63 Anonymous

    You guys are lagging behind Thor, guys.
    Your stuff was awesome, so get off your asses and do something.

  64. 64 Aqua-Marine

    I had hope for the Blu-Rays. I’ve now jumped boat to Chihiro. Shame, your work was pretty awesome.

    I don’t know if what you’re saying on IRC about being back is true though…

  65. 65 case logic

    Are these guys dead. not subbing for the Auturmn

  66. 66 outlaw

    Hey Coalguys,

    I just realized how terrible THORA and Chihiro translations are in comparison. THORA isn’t as bad, but they just about ruined “Don’t Say Lazy”.

    Please! I’m sure many would absolutely love to have the 3rd and 4th episode of the Blurays subbed!

    I hope I’m able to see more of your work!

    Cheers!

  67. 67 tongloko

    I want to know if you guys keep subbing this Anime.

  68. 68 LIER

    Rest in peace.

  69. 69 anon?

    umm… DEATH???

  70. 70 sarni

    awwwwwww

  71. 71 Lier

    Jaka is in gg, so he’s fansubing this season there.

    But Im going to be a fag and ask if you guys will release the other K-ON! BD, CoalGuys’ version is way better than others :/

  72. 72 ­­

    crasses makes me so ronery ;_;

  73. 73 David

    Since CoalGuys appears to have died. I guess I will have to get Frostii’s BD releases. I hope this group comes back to life as I really want releases from here.

    Thanks for what you have released so far.

  74. 74 Please!

    Please come back and sub the Akikan OVA

  75. 75 Neet

    This is sad coalguys was pretty good but it’s been 2 season and nothing have been coming out from them hope they pick up some projects in winter 2010 there seems to be some pretty good one, they should of subed Sora No Otoshimono

  76. 76 Waru

    Is it my internet connection [although I don't think so] but the torrent link and the ddl ones don’t work. It says the file is missing or in the torrents case, the link is broken.

  77. 77 PinkiiGirl

    I’m sorry, but would you please edit the links? They’re all broken.

  78. 78 EHBony

    I haven’t seen K-ON! before, and my friends all told me it was good. I came here to check out the the Blu Ray files up… and they’re dead. :(
    Can you guys fix the linkz please? After i read how you said Chihiro’s subs sucks, I don’t feel like watching theirs.

  79. 79 Yahoouj

    Really good work about this website was done. Keep trying more – thanks!
