The list of toku actors for Garo 3 is pretty good

  • Sato Hiroko has been in other toku shows such as Faiz, RyuKenDo, and Decade.
    • Imura Kumi was co-stars with Hiroko in RyuKenDo. She played the main heroine, Sakyou Rin. Her role in this series is unknown, but her name was listed in the youtube trailer for the show.
  • Ikeda Junya was previously GokaiSilver on the show Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.
  • Tsuda Kanji previously played Rekka's father in the Garo Red Requiem movie. He has had many cameo roles in toku, perhaps being best known for his role as Editor-in-Chief in Ryuki and Takeru's father in Shinkenger.

Found this out writing up the actors' names for the wiki.

Sorry this took way longer than we were expecting it to. A lot of great guests in this movie. And it's a fun movie to boot. Check it out! Tsuchiya Anna sings the theme song which also has a music video that we released.

Wizard Blu-ray box mini review

Art on the back of the box.

"Emerged from the magical stones, representing the great power in this world. Please release the power of dragon hidden in ring." - Typical Rider Engrish phrase.

So this is kind of nice. A Blu-ray box from volume one. It seems like they usually wait till volume 6 to release these, so I'm pleased. It comes with Blu-ray 1 and a card holder. The box art is fairly nice, with the magic circle on top. It has all four of Wizard's base forms on it.

Oh, I guess they usually wait for volume 6 because now they can't show any of Wizard's upgraded forms, or Beast. Oh well!

Something that is nice is that for Wizard, they included 5 episodes on one Blu-ray. Unfortunately, I think this is a one time thing since Wizard 1 wasn't a two-episode arc. So they included episodes 2-3 and 4-5 so people don't have to wait a month to see the second half of the story for four.

Bonus footage includes: Making of the pilot episode, cast talk, digest of the announcement meeting, episode previews, and info pics for the Wizard Rings and Phantoms. The info pages seem surprisingly simple. The Phantom pages don't even include their human forms, just the Gates they attack. There's no English translations of the monster or Wizard rings either.

No subtitles for the episodes, as usual. Pretty standard stuff really. I just got a bit hyped because of the box and the bonus episode.

The TV-Nihon spreadsheet


So I was adding the list of file names from our spreadsheet to the wiki last night, when I noticed that there are still a lot of mistakes in it.

I mean, the whole thing started rather informally. I was just keeping a list of releases just so we could have that list available if needed. There was a lot of information lost from the early days just from bad record keeping and a lack of backups. Monsier Enter we are not. Toss in a bunch of other cooks dabbling in the pot, human error, and patch work and we've got this wonderful mess of information that we have today.

Really, ignoring the 90 or so missing Decade adventure files, I'd say that the current release number is correct within a plus or minus 50 variance.

But yeah, it's pretty hard to add list of file names to the wiki when there were several series that never had their file names added in the first place. Sometimes information woudl be entered with a different style, so they'd appear in the wrong order. So before adding the files to the wiki, I had to fix the spreadsheet that was the source of my info. XD

By the way, if you ever need a list of files from your folder in windows, just go to command prompt. Go to that directory in command. Then enter the command:

dir /b > FileList.txt

It'll generate a text file with all the file names in that directory. It's pretty neat. Removing the /b will give you a detailed file list. And obviously you can name the text file whatever you want. So this has been takenoko's tips and tricks corner.

Anyway, the wiki should have lists of files. I didn't organize them or anything, but hopefully they're all there. Hopefully this wasn't too boring to read.
