FLASH KNUCKLE CROSS Kyouryuuger 05 Released

I think it's only fair given the guest actor in this episode to talk to you a little about Robert Baldwin.

This man is amazing.

Not only is he one of the few select foreigners to get a speaking role on a tokusatsu show, but in 2005, he was an actual main character in the short-lived Chou Sei Kantai Sazer X. Not just a main character, but a transforming main character. He has a toy and everything. If you haven't seen Sazer X yet, I weep for you. Not only are you missing out on a great actor, but you're missing out on a great show, the start of Miura Ryousuke (Ankh from OOO), and Shindou Gaku (Sid from Gokaiger).

Translator, interpreter, actor, he loves Lord of the Rings and dreams of one day taking over the world. When he was a child, he wanted to be an ally of justice.

A foreign man who loves tokusatsu, living in Japan and guest starring as an actual Sentai member.

How is this man not your god?

Spammer update

Quick update on the spammer situation. We've pretty much gotten the flow of spam accounts down to a weak trickle, but takenoko and I have been banning large swaths of Russian IPs left and right so if you're in Russia you might have to email one of the admins to unban whatever ip address you're using.

 

Also I've been pretty agressive about deleting any suspicious new account that comes in, so if I accidentally delete yours and you're not a spammer, sorry! Please make a new one and add something to your profile. I'm less likely to delete accounts with some profile information filled in.

Happy Kaixa Day

It's time once again for that celebration everyone looks forward to every year.

Yes, it's "Draw Kamen Riders as large-breasted females" Day.

 

The most wonderful time of the year!

 

Aaaaand we're back

Tracker looks like we've taken the TARDIS back to 1992, but it's up. Go happy downloaders!

EDIT: Okay, so you can't actually download anything without it asking for a username and password. Oops. Working on it.

W EDIT: WHEE WE'RE ACTUALLY BACK. Tracker design is temporary, so the sooner you submit designs the sooner we can get search functionality back.

In the meantime, please go gay over this picture of Date Akira. Takenoko already has.

Why no-one gives a shit about you pirating toku (and why you shouldn’t either)

Just to ease some of those guilty consciences some of you might have, and to reiterate why no toku fansubber will be shut down anytime soon.

Stop SOPA and PIPA

If you live in the United States, please take the time today to contact your local Congressmen to get these bills struck down and shot in the head so they don't come back as zombies. Whether you're Democrat or Republican or Bull Moose, now is the time to come together to protect what really matters - our freedom of speech.

And fansubbing.

As drafted, the legislation would grant the government and private parties unprecedented power to interfere with the Internet's underlying infrastructure. The government would be able to force ISPs and search engines to block users' attempts to reach certain websites' URLs....It gets worse: the blacklist bills' provisions would give corporations and other private parties new powers to censor foreign websites with court orders that would cut off payment processors and advertisers. Broad immunity provisions (combined with a threat of litigation) would encourage service providers to overblock innocent users or even block websites voluntarily. This gives content companies every incentive to create unofficial blacklists of websites, which service providers would be under pressure to block without regard to the First Amendment.

Service providers would be forced to monitor and police their users' activities as well, threatening the DMCA safe harbors that have been vital to online innovation over the last decade. SOPA gives the government new powers to go after sites that provide information about tools that might be used to bypass the blacklists – even though these are often the same tools used by democratic activists around the world to bypass Internet censorship mechanisms implemented by authoritarian governments like Iran and China.

You can email your congressman at the link above or sign Google's petition first and then email them at this link.

Gokai 40 HD released

Here's something I've been meaning to post for a while. The famous explorer Vasco da Gama, who is notably the commander of the first ships to sail directly from Europe to India has a veeeeeery similar sounding name to a certain Gokaiger villain. But surely that's coincidence right? After all, if we look at Basco's monster form and the picture of Vasco on the Japanese wiki page...

Well whaddaya know

Fourze 10 HD

Sparkly blast off!

Gokai 37 SD/HD

In which Waruzu Giru has a temper tantrum....again

I'M POUTING

Saraba Den-O HD v2

Once again Den-O will not just end already, as we re-release the final batch with v2 of Saraba Den-O HD. If you were on the old one, just stop it, remove the torrent but not the data and start the new one up and it will continue on again. We apologise for the inconvience.

No Fourze 11/6

There will be no Fourze next week due to sports. Because god hates you.

Gokaiger still airs though, so maybe god doesn't hate you that much.
