Wangan Midnight licensed?

Maybe? A couple members of our group received takedown orders for our links on for Wangan Midnight. So far no request has come for our torrent links to be taken down, but that may happen in the near future.

To Qcers about Dropbox

When previewing a video in Dropbox, they only show the first part of a video. You will often need to download it if you want to see the whole thing.


Ninninger Characters

Wrote up some explanation for the character names. All the cast pages should be up and with pics. You should check out the father character's page, he's been in a lot of stuff that we've done.

Wiki link:


Igasaki Takaharu - Nishikawa Shunsuke
Takaharu's name uses the same kanji as Appare/Splendid. It literally means clear skies which goes along with the weather theme of his family. His family name, Igasaki, is an obvious reference to the famous Iga Ninja Clan.


Igasaki Fuuka - Yano Yuuka
Fuuka means flowery wind.


Katou (Cloud) Yakumo - Matsumoto Gaku
Yakumo literally means 8 clouds or clouds in all directions.


Matsuo Nagi - Nakamura Kaito
Nagi means calm.


Momochi Kasumi - Yamaya Kasumi
Momo means pink, but in Momochi, it means "100". So Momochi means 100 lands. Kasumi means mist.

Takaharu and Fuuka's father

Igasaki Tsumuji - Yashiba Toshihiro
Tsumuji means whirlwind.

Last Ninja

Igasaki Yoshitaka - Sasano Takashi
Yoshitaka means fine weather, similar to Takaharu's given name. 
Grandfather of the Igasaki siblings.


Planning to check off the TOQ/Gaim movie tomorrow

If you're currently work on it, send me an e-mail so I can send out the second pass encode. Thanks.

Ryuki OP and first battle karaoke released

Just wanted to show how the final results will look from the Blu-ray. Just for full disclosure, Ryuki is a series that was upscaled to Blu-ray and wasn't filmed in HD originally. You may wonder what that means.

That means if you look real closely, you might see that the footage doesn't look as good as say Kabuto will when we release it from Blu-ray next month (since from Hibiki onwards, Kamen Rider was all filmed in HD). So there's a little artifacting in the blue and there's not as much detail in Ren's face as there should be. But it's still going to be a better quality release than from our DVD source.

When released on DVD, they took the original footage (not sure what resolution it was) and compressed it down to 720x480, then that's resized to 16:9 ratio so it's widescreen. Our original releases were what, 704x396 using the xvid codec, I think?

What Toei did was they took their original footage and upscaled it so that it's 1920x1080. Don't get me wrong, this isn't like taking the DVD footage and resizing it to 1920x1080. You can't create details out of nothing and that would look really bad. They took their footage (which was likely higher resolution than DVD) and professional upscaled it. So it's not going to look as good as if it originally were HD, but it looks fine in motion.


End of the year update

Happy holidays everyone. Just a little update of what's going on.

We've got the two Drive specials in the work now, as well as the Surprise Drive music video.

The Gaim and Toqger movies are being worked on now. The Ginga movie is also in qc. We're also working on the Bounty Hunters movie/Toei Hero Next #4.

We're still working on old shows like Agito and MegaRanger.

We're also redoing some shows on Blu-ray like Shinkenger, Ryuki, and W. It should be particularly exciting in Ryuki's case since that was never in HD before.



Toqger 40 v2 released
