Kaitou Sentai LupinRanger VS Keisatsu Sentai PatRanger 33 Released!

I'm really disappointed in this year's Christmas CharaDeco cakes. Usually they've got a cute little toy in the center (which the birthday cakes still have) but this year it's just some shitty plastic pokey bits (that you have to poke into the cake yourself). I mean there's still the special Christmas Dial Fighter but no kid's gonna want to play with those plastic picks. Lame!

PS Bandai it's not even October yet, keep your spandex on.

Clearly Toei had a rooftop location all booked up for the night and decided to kill two birds with one stone.

Girlfriends Army v2 released

Issue with the audio when played with QuickTime. If you were able to watch it before there's no need to redownload, the contents are the same.

Lupin VS Pat 29 SD v2 released

Wrong bitrate, sorry about that!

P.S. Girlfriends Army was a DVD-only release so no HD, sorry!

The reason why Good Feeling Kaiser is not Good Cool Kaiser

I've gotten this question a couple times now so I'll lay out the reasons why "cool" is incorrect.

Let's break this down:

グッドクルカイザー guddokuru kaizaa
グッド good (guddo)
クール cool (kuuru)

Now, while クル and クール look almost the same, that elongated syllable makes all the difference. A native Japanese speaker would never use the shorter kuru instead of kuuru when trying to say "cool". It's like "mod" and "mood", in English, visually they're similar but you'd never mix them up.

The name is a pun on グッとくる (guttokuru), which is Goody's catchphrase. I've been translating it as "Good Feeling" although honestly that's a bit of a simplification solely for the subs. The dictionary definition is "to touch emotionally; to feel something; to strike home". TBH now that I'm thinking about it, I probably should have translated his catchphrase as "all of the feels!" although I dislike using modern slang that might pass out of favor in a few years. It's a very emotionally charged phrase, so while "Good Feeling" isn't the best, it uses the word "good" and it gives you a general idea of the nuance, although we've lost the pun.

tl;dr you can't read クル (kuru) as "cool" and it's a pun so "Good Cool" is a mistranslation.

Anti-accident, anti-crime charm from P-Bandai. I'm not sure if it's supposed to protect you from crime or make it so you can't commit crimes.

Still looking for a timer for LupinVSPat  as our current timer recently got a new job and while we're very happy for him, it does mean he's not going to have the time to time stuff weekly once he starts. If you're interested, timing requires about 1-2 hours (closer to 2 if you're a newbie, 1 or less once you get the hang of it) and availability every Sunday afternoon JST to work on the episode. We provide template, training and internet cookies! (Is that still a thing? No? God I'm old.) Just email using the address in "contact us" above, PM either takenoko or Lunagel on the forums, or drop into our Discord/irc channel!
