Season 9 Early Episode Protocol

Post by Wayoshi (?) » Tue May 21, 2019 7:41 pm

Hello everyone,

Italy has recently been airing the first half of season 9 every weekday, that is concluding tomorrow. I was ignoring it as it aired in Italian, but I have learned that not only is there a HD VOD after the airing, but there is also an English audio option for the VOD. Throw in dedicated fans adjusting the pitch to NTSC, and we have some early episodes. These are really good quality, with just one "cartoonito" watermark in the top right.

So one last time, let's plan for early episodes, as I bet this will happen again sometime in the second half of season 9. Here's what I've done and will do:

-Made early episode threads in the spoiler forum, with episode links. I'll lock these threads once they've aired on Discovery Family.
-Episode threads will continue in this forum weekly for the Discovery Family airing. I'll link the appropriate early episode thread so all commentary on the episode is easily accessible.

Plenty of threads, probably not many responses in each, but this is the best solution. Happy watching, whenever you do it!

Episode 14 leaked in China on-demand. Full English HD, with Chinese subtitles on the bottom not too intrusive.

I've made a spoiler thread for it. it won't air on DF until August 3.

Episodes 15-18 have gone up in the same Chinese source over the past two Fridays. Yayponies has even found a way to get rid of the Chinese subtitles, so it's a very clean, NTSC corrected, HD release. That's all of August's Discovery Family episodes, as well as all the episodes we currently have synopses for.

At this rate, the show will be over in four weeks' time for those preferring to watch this way. I'll keep making early episode threads etc. as laid out in the OP.

Eh we too old for this show crowd really don't count anyhow. If we see it early it's not doing much to anything long as we don't spoil it for the kids watching it. (Or the kids who are now teens or adults jesus time passes and it suuuuuucks.)

It's a little bittersweet knowing its gonna end soon and watching it earlier might end it faster but well the show got 6 extra seasons more than intended plus movies and specials and spinoffs. Better than doing a Simpsons I would say.

I am grateful that the episodes are released early. They give me the choice to see them whenever I want instead of eagerly awaiting for a livestream to catch it live. The feeling of FOMO and the stress of finding time for the livestream and praying that my connection breaks down is absolutely gone.

Ep 19 came out as usual, then Ep 20 followed a bit irregularly without English for now a couple hours later.

Nothing's going to stop this train from ending the series on August 9.

The rest of the series has released in Dutch on videoland.com . Beware of the final spoilers.

The Netherlands release is not in english, but apparently Australia will air the rest of the season this week.

Even without English there are gigantic spoilers in at least the final episode. Steer clear if you care.

As a reminder, you can hide the spoiler forum entirely, which will prevent you from accidentally seeing any posts in there (unless you log out). Access the usergroups tab of your UCP and add yourself to the "No Spoilers" group.

The true last early release is actually a leak.

The same infamous hacker who straight up leaked early Gen 5 concept art as well as incomplete early season 8 episodes has leaked yet again, for who knows why. This was actually up for two days in a remote location and just noticed today by the main crowd.

-The remaining non-English episodes are now leaked in English
-Every single initial episode script is leaked, including all 222 episodes of the main series (including Best Gift Ever), all the shorts, as well as 6 "clip shows" that have not yet been announced. I emphasize initial because reportedly these include never-before-seen details such as Rarity's scene from Luna Eclipsed (S02E04) that was cut, etc.

You're on your own for links just like the last actual leak.
