Where's the HD batch? It's a mystery.

Dropbox users!

I want to try releasing files through Dropbox. If you have a Dropbox account (or want to sign up for one), send me an e-mail and I'll add you to a folder for releases. We generally keep files around for a few days to a week before archiving them, so it'd be a chance to grab our files really quickly after release. (If  you have the app on your desktop, it'll sync automatically).

It's just an experiment that I'm trying. It may not work out or I might have to change a few things, so please understand that. Thanks!


KR Build 08 v2 released

New release fixes a few translations. Including the opening karaoke since the official lyrics are out.

Does anyone know how dropbox works?

Let's say I have a folder. I want to give share it (read only) to other people with dropbox accounts. If these people start creating links, would that use it the bandwidth of everyone who shares that file, or just the account that created that link?

Just wondering if we can do distro via dropbox.


KRDL is back


I received an e-mail a few days ago that KRDL is coming back. And it looks like it's here! You can go there to download files for our shows. It's always good to have alternatives to torrents, so we appreciate the service that they provide.

KR Fourze 1080 material batch release

Just the 1080 footage. Most of the series was released in 720 format, so this is just the 1080 extras. Sorry if there's an overlap between batches!

Including 31-32DC, Finale DC, Junctions, Net movies, Movie+DC, Movie Taisen Mega Max+DC, Super Hero Taisen, and more.

There were some non-1080 footage stuff in the 1080 torrents, so I included them too. Life is messy and hard to organize sometimes.

Sentai movie Blu-ray revival: Go-Busters Returns: Tokumei VS Doubutsu released

So we're still gradually doing the Sentai movies from the Blu-ray set from last year. Today we have Go-Busters Returns, something that was originally released DVD-only. The quality is good and worth a Blu-ray HDing. We also have the creditless op and ed sequences that we didn't release before. Enjoy. I miss Go-Busters!

Late KyuuRanger 27 v2 released

Someone pointed out the translation for a few lines were translated wrong, so here's a late v2 for episode 27! Episode 35 coming later today!

More detailed explanation for what was changed

The Raid Redemption: Dredd with martial arts

A friend lent me this movie, and it's a fantastic action film. I've never seen choreography with knives and machetes like that before. (That machete in the wall scene was so cringy!)

Mad Dog is awesome.

The movie is Indonesian, but there's English subtitles. Like the subject line says, it's Dredd with martial arts.

Since you like tokusatsu, you'd probably be able to watch this and have a good time.

KissAsian staff around?

Hey, does anyone know anyone on the KissAsian staff? Someone suggested that we upload our subs to their stream service, but I don't know how one would go about doing that.

15th anniversary release: Commercial Pack


Check it out. There's a bunch of funny, amusing commercials in this one.

Of note, we did a translation of the Talking Zaruba commercial for Garo, and redid the Sentai toy commercial pack up to Boukenger that came in the Sentai Encyclopedia.
