This week's toku showing

We are going to be showing 2 episodes of Garo this week due it being Halloween. Here is the link to the poll to decide the best "Monster of the Week Episode" that will be the second episode shown this week.

Forum poll

Poll if you don't have a forum account

Please cast your vote by the end of Thursday.


(Note: I should really post a plug for this when we release Garo at the beginning of the week, not after everyone's downloaded the episodes)

TV-Nihon turns 14 today

October 22nd, 2016. 14 years, almost 15!

What can I say at this point but thank you to all the T-N staff. This includes, but aren't limited to, all the people past and present who've helped us work on subtitling the shows, who've helped distribute them, who create our splash pictures at the start of the videos, who work on our wiki, who run our site, who participate in our chat, who host streams of our shows, who run our social media, who capture our raw footage from Japan, and probably a ton of other people that I'm just forgetting.

And of course, thank you to the fans. We appreciate all the nice things that you've said about us over the years. Thank you to the donators who help us cover the costs of running the site. Thank you to our unnoticed fans, who enjoy our shows, but don't really participate in the social aspect. Thank you to our critics for pushing us to always be better.

Looks like we made it up to 3891 releases this year. Almost 4000.

No special releases this year, unfortunately. But here's a plug for some random services that people might not know we offer:

Toku group showing stream - Zero's Friday stream, hang out in chat!
Chat  - Speaking of chat, you can always visit us and say hi in our main chat
Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter

I'm trying to set up a meet up for San Francisco in November. I always love meeting new people, so feel free to stop by and join us. Thread

Useful stuff on the wiki:
-If you want to comment on an episode, you can always look up the episode on our wiki, and on the far right, in the info box there's a link to the forum thread right there: Example:
-If you ever want to double check to see if you have all the files for a series, we keep a list on the series page:
-We try to keep pretty good lists on the wiki too:
-Trying to figure out what commercials were in the commercial pack that come with the episode? I try to keep a detailed list on the episode page:
-We have a calendar of sorts. Click the date to see who was born on that day:
-Waiting for a movie release? Check to see if it's been released on Blu-ray first before asking us to sub it:


Toku Group Viewing

Time: Fridays 7 PM Pacific (10 PM Eastern)

Zero's been working to improve the experience. If you haven't watched this week's episodes yet, feel free to come this Friday and hang out and watch it with others. I'm hoping to drop by to say hi and answer people's questions if they have them.

Zero is also planning to show another Rider series from the past. I don't know if there's a regular schedule for that yet, but I'll let people know when there's more info.

You can also check the thread for the latest news.

You can visit the chat channel that we're going to be using here. Stop by and say hi!

Jyuohger ratings as a chart

Made a line graph based on people's ratings of the different episodes. The light blue line is a polynomial trendline. You can find all the fan ratings in the polls at the top of each of the episode threads.

If you want to watch the episode with a group of other people, feel free to wait till this Firday. We're having a group watch on that date. (Or if you've already seen it and want to rewatch it with people, feel free to show up just to comment.) The more the merrier!

T-N staff reacts to episode 1 of Ex-Aid



Want to join in something similar? Thanks to Zero_the_Fixer for setting this up...

Based on the group viewings that the staff holds for first and final episodes per series, we're going to try to set up a time for toku fans to gather together and watch a show together.

Time: Fridays 7 PM Pacific (10 PM Eastern)

The plan is to play the week's new episodes with a 5 minute break inbetween each one. So Sentai, break, Rider, break, then Garo.

If it says adblock disabled, apparently it can be fixed by just reloading it. Works best on PC.

Any questions / suggestions so far?

Plus some creditless openings and endings. Super Doubutsu Taisen next week, promise!

Garo Original Series Licensed

Unsure as to what this means for our HD remaster releases at this point, we'll let you know once we know the release date. We'll give at least a week warning before pulling down our subs.


Discussion Thread


New banners added

Go to the forums and keep hitting refresh till you see one! (Well, maybe don't) But it's been a while since we had new banners. If anyone wants to make one, the guideline is about 88 pixels tall and about 477 pixels wide, but it supports variable widths.

Submission Thread

Ex-Aid 01 and bonuses released

  • Commercial pack
  • Poppy's Room Promo and Poppy's Room 1
  • Gamer Driver 30s CM
  • Junction 1

I decided not to translate the Ganbarizing stuff because it didn't interest me. But I left it in, in case people wanted to see it. Please don't bother our Twitter and Facebook asking why it's not subbed or if we plan to sub it. Thanks!
