Use of swear words in our subs

Haven't had this question in a while, so I figured I'd answer it publicly. Please don't make fun of him or mock him for having different ideals than your own. I'm merely putting this up to explain our group position on such matters.
>First off, let me say thanks for subbing all those Kamen Rider episodes; I've really enjoyed them, and I've started sharing them with my kids, who love the shows, too.
You're welcome man, glad the whole family is enjoying it. Sorry about the late reply, September has been a tough month for me.
>Which brings me to my concern; what's up with the harsh language?  Isn't Kamen Rider a kids' show?  The occasional "bastard" or "damn" doesn't seem like that big of a deal, but are they actually using words like "shit" or even "fuck" in a show designed for children and shown at 8 AM?
Rider is aimed at teens, so that might explain it. I mean the subject matter can range from death to torture to other things. The other thing is, I feel like swear words are the same thing in Japan as it is in America.
>Maybe I'm just a wet blanket killjoy or whatever, but I'd just ask that you consider that part of your audience isn't adult, and maybe reconsider some of those translation choices.
I think it's always best to translate in a way to best fit the context of the scene. Rest assured, when we use swear words, they aren't added in arbitrarily.
>I understand that this is a labor of love for you guys, but please spare a thought for the next generation of fans.
I appreciate your concern, but am afraid I don't agree. Call it differences in parenting styles.

Again, sorry about not being able to help with your request, but I hope you can understand my position as a writer and artist.

Thank you, Team Drive! And thank you to Lunagel and Yaiba for double teaming the translation for Drive this year. Yaiba also did the typesetting and some of the splashes. And of course, thanks to everyone else who worked on the project.

It's good, you should check it out if you like... Ultraman, Superman, or Ironman.

It continues the story of Hayata Shin, the original Ultraman.

Kikyou's actress is a trained martial artist!

Thread / Wiki / Tumblr

Probably should have saved release 3700 for the last episode of Drive, right? Since it's a mini anniversary, let's go over the basics.

We have a wiki, please check there for your information needs. If you have any feature requests, comments, or whatever, shoot me an e-mail. We have a chat on slack.com, e-mail me if you want an invite.

If you want direct download links, you should seek out this forum. Remember that this is mostly run by the fans. If the links are broken, there's a forum for that.

If you need a seed, please check this forum. If you want to help, these torrents are unseeded.

If you're an artist, you can submit pictures to use at the start of our videos in this thread.

If you wonder when something will be released, please check to see if it's out on disc first. Don't ask us if we're going to sub the movie or OV of a series that we're already subbing. You know that we're almost certain to do so.

As usual, thank you to our fans. We wouldn't have made it this far without your support.

Promos for Bikuu and Guren no Tsuki included.

Ninninger 29 & CM & Blu-ray promo released

Sorry for the late post, totally slipped my mind.

I'm starting to do polls for each of the weekly episodes. All three episodes this week should have them. Vote it up and let's see what the group thought of these episodes! If I forget, just remind me.

Ghost Rider promo released

Marvel please no sue.


Garo -Gold Storm- Shou 22 & CM & Guren Byakuren Commentary released

The Guren Byakuren commentary video actually comes in 1080 resolution, but it looks just as terrible. That's why it's only in SD quality. It was just badly shot.
