This release replaces the audio in GJM's Kaguya Season 1 release with BD audio. GJM's TV release switched between audio sources throughout the season. The audio fluctuates in amplitude, causing jarring differences between episodes when binge-watching. In addition, GJM used an audio source in the latter half of the season with noticeable audio artifacting compared to, e.g., CR. I have good reason to believe that their source was Wakanim; I recommend not using Wakanim audio under any circumstances because they use an inferior AAC encoder to their competitors, have been known to intentionally sabotage the quality of their own audio, and have been the cause of broken audio in at least two major fansub releases despite being a far less common choice of audio than CR or TV. While I'm on the subject, I recommend that encoders never encode to Wakanim's frame-timings. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, don't worry about it.) Wakanim sometimes removes important audio or video when making their cuts. An example of this is the beginning of episode 10 of this series. EDIT: Sorry to all the RSS feeds I triggered. Did you know that you can make RSS requests that are tied to a specific user's account? https://nyaa.si/?page=rss&q=kaguya&c=0_0&f=0&u=GoodJobMedia

> they use an inferior AAC encoder to their competitors, have been known to intentionally sabotage the quality of their own audio Is there somewhere I can read up on this? Seems wack lol

Wakanim "watermarks" their downloadable episodes sometimes, presumably as an anti-piracy measure. They flip bits in their video streams, causing minor video glitches. At some point, their audio became corrupted/glitchy, and we assumed it was for the same reason. Later, after some people complained, the audio went back to being uncorrupted.
Wasn't that being done for downloads done very soon after release (for an hour after release iirc) and fixed for people who downloaded it later on? Also rss ping.

I believe the window has been more like 24-48h. That said, I haven't checked for a long time.
Motbob, do you believe that https://nyaa.si/view/1256127 this show has audio problems too since it's a direct wakanim rip?

No, I don't think that any particular Wakanim rip is likely to have audio problems. Rather, I just think there are better, more reliable audio sources.
Understood, thanks.
Thanks for this motbob, but doesn't GSK's release (https://nyaa.si/view/1192908) already have this covered using Beatrice's BD release?

I made this torrent because I personally wanted to watch GJM's original release. So maybe there are people like me out there.
