Renkin San-Kyuu Magical Pokaan

I use the main screen of uTorrent as a sort of Video Manager, with tags indicating things I've watched, things I'm planning to watch, things I have collected but aren't on deck, etc. And I move things around that way.

I recently noticed that I had managed to move something into my to watch label that I didn't recognize. I started to check it out, and then I realized to my chagrin that I had downloaded a batch with GERMAN subtitles. And then I looked further and realized I had downloaded this very old show in 2011. But you know, some people are very dedicated, and a torrent that was posted in 2014 is still running. And the subs are in English, the resolution is higher, and I still don't remember why I downloaded a show originally from 2005 six years ago.

Then I watched further:

Plus, it's a cute show. Four girls have come to Earth each representing different occult archetypes, a witch, a vampiress, a cyborg (Frankenstein) and this girl, Liru, a werewolf. They build a home in a tree in a park, and try to live in this world with absolutely no clue. In the half episode the screencap is from, the witch notices the postal delivery guy dropping off mail at every house across the street, and she wants some, but has no idea what it actually is. She and the Cyborg build mailboxes, but when that cargo cult move doesn't get them mail, they all escalate.

2 Need a Magnet link?  Maybe you already got on this because I'm almost up to my 2:1 share ratio....

3 One downside: Hardsubs.

5 Okay, I'm interested, but I don't see an active torrent anywhere. Link in email?

6 Don't think I have your address. Try this (magnet link)? I just restarted my seeding for it (Changed 2:1 to 5:1)

7 Thanks. First time trying to use a magnet link, and so far, it just sits there doing nothing. I presume I have to leave qbittorent running long enough for it to find a node that recognizes the hash.

8 Found a torrent with seeds (had to update qbittorrent to get the search engine to work; haven't downloaded anything in quite a while...). The magnet link never did anything, though; maybe my client is misconfigured in some fashion.

9 5 seconds into the OP and I recognized the character designer from Hand Maid May, Cosplay Complex, and G-On Riders. This is a good thing!

10 Guess I can shut it down now. I'm not an expert on the thing, but I think magnet links depend on DHT running. I also don't know if the format that uTorrent gives when you select "copy Magnet URI" is the same as a magnet link as you see on the torrent sites. This torrent also inclues three extras, and the circle was [BAF].

11 The one I found was a DVD-rip by [Tsundere], and also includes the three extras. The moment I started watching, I remembered having seen some comments from SDB, but he never gave it a full article or review.

I had DHT turned on, and it was at one point connected to 300+ peers, but it never found one who recognized the hash. Maybe they'll have this stuff working in a year or two when I try to download something again... :-)

12 Hmmm, when I click the magnet link, it switches to uTorrent and asks me if I want to add the Trackers because I already have the torrent. Yeah, I don't know what to say there. But as long as you have it, that's good.

So, how do you like it?

13 Oh, I might have included the magnet link for the really old german sub! I hadn't deleted that yet, but I imagine the torrent was lonh gone.

14 BTW, if you watch VERY carefully, there's a fifth girl.

15 So far so good. I'm up to the busty mermaid in episode 5.

16 There's a Ski Trip/Hot Springs episode coming up.

17 Funny how Uma is the main character, but Liru is the clear fan favorite. I wonder why that is...

Oh, and the fifth girl is amusingly handled in the Robot M5 story.

18 She also turns the pages in the book and says something in the christmas episode (Which if you pay close attention, they got the date wrong).

Liru has the widest range of the characters, I think. She's even the closest to "Normal".

And she's hot.
