Other forum styles?

Change in Settings

So I noticed that the forums were a little hard to read on Chrome at work, so I turned on the other available style (Prosilver) for the forums. All it really does is reskin the forum. The new skin makes the forums look really kind of generic and some of the styles preferences look weird. Maybe some things are broken since the assumption is made that everyone is using Acidred (default style).

But for those of you who are not of the vampire persuasion or don't want people thinking you're on Myspace at work, options!

As a side note, this is a pretty good article:

Frankly, I like this article because it's a reminder of the goals we have as a group. Not to say this is proof that this is what most of our audience wants or that everyone should want these same things, but it's kind of what most the staff wants. And I take that back, I do think most of #TV-Nihon's fans do like the Japanese stuff that we keep in the translations

Made a forum thread about it


Oreimo Radio transcript 8 up


Oreimo 8 released

Felt like kind of a short one this time. As usual, Aya and Kana play off each other really well. For some reason they seem to refer to something called Gag Manga Biyori a lot this time. There's links to youtube videos in the transcript so that you can see what they're referring to. Aya also gives Kana a lesson in Monster Hunter and they briefly plug the Oreimo game

I did finally 100% the Oreimo game by the way (had to use a walkthrough to get through the last 20%). I'm just not sure how people are supposed to know which dialogue choices are best. I think what I like best are the IF endings. I mean, all the endings in the game are pretty much non-canon in the sense that they can't all coexist together. But the IF endings are so out there that they have to be labeled as being super non-canon. I dunno, do people want me to write out a description of the different endings?

The word:
Yaboyou 野暮用 【やぼよう】 (n) minor business
I just think this is funny because yabou means unrefined, boorish, uncouth and you means business. I guess if you focus on yabou meaning unrefined then I guess it makes sense, but otherwise it just sounds like "violent business" to me, like you're going to rough someone up

HeartCatch Precure Musical Show?

Kind of wanted to release this with the anime finale, but oh well. Two or three weeks after the fact is still good!

Gokaiger 01 released for realz

Sorry it took a while, we were doing a lot of fine tuning. Let's go! Pirates go! Go Gokaiger!


So let's talk a bit about an underrated show, Chousei Kantai Sazer-X. It was the third in the series that was akin to the third party for Toei's Kamen Rider and Sentai series. Just 38 episodes long (and a movie) and following the more popular JustiRiser series, I kind of feel like it fell on the wayside with people finding the humor goofy and the other tongue-in-cheek elements just offputting. I mean, you either love Sazer-Gordo or you vehemently reject him.

So what happened to the three main heroes of the series?

Well, Miura Ryousuke seems to be doing pretty well for himself. Apparently he acts in J-doramas, he had a guest role in Decade, and he's currently a main character in Kamen Rider OOO. That's pretty awesome if you think about it.

Shindou Gaku apparently is still getting work too. He was in Fuuma no Kojirou the live version and now he's doing voice acting for one of the villains in Gokaiger.

But what happened to the main hero of Sazer-X? Where's he gone? The year's still young, maybe we'll see him pop up in some toku somewhere else

Splash for Goseiger vs Shinkenger get!

Yeah, this is pretty cool

W A to Z splash get!

Seeya around detective

I think we have our splash. This pic by the way was in some Hong Kong picture contest involving toys. I lost the link to it, but it had some really great stuff. Check it out if you can find it

Rebatch: Gransazer 1-20 and Rockman Axess EXE

Pic from this page

So as it may be apparent, I'm doing some clean up with the tracker. If you missed something before, now might be a good time to grab stuff while the seeds are fresh. Oh yeah, Sazer Visual/Ran from GS is in the upcoming Goseiger movie release. Look forward to it!

Speaking of which, can someone seed the Super Link and Galaxy Force torrents? There are people downloading from them but there's no seeds. And to segway from that...

There's been news that there might be a North American DVD release for the Japanese G1 Transformers. If that happens we'll probably pull the torrents, so grab them now if you want them

Goseiger movie splash get!

Now all we need is one for the W movie. While I'm at it, we'll probably need one for the Goseiger versus Shinken movie next month too

Splash for the W/Goseiger movies?

Does someone want to make us a splash for the KRW Forever movie and the Goseiger Epic on the Movie movie? Same specs as usual 1280x720 in size. Here's your chance to show off your art/Photoshop fu. Remember to credit yourself somewhere on the picture.

E-mail or PM me over the forums if you're interested. Thanks!

Edit: Also, it seems like a lot of people wonder why we do splash pics. The real reason is, we do them because they're cool. It's only three seconds, but over the years, a lot of people have turned in very wallpaper worthy pictures. It's the same with the front page, I could just be super minimalistic and just stick to conveying information, but that's boring. Look at how boring that is: http://www.tvnihon.com/archives/2006_05_01_archive.html It's so boring!

Gosei 43-50 HD... released sometime in the future

So we got some raws for 43-50. Expect HDs of them coming up sometime in the future. Looks like we're missing some episodes inbetween, so let us know if you know where to get them.

We're also still looking for a personal HD raw provider for the group as well.

The fanboy's lament

The Nostalgia Critic did an interesting set of videos that had what I felt to be a very good message. It seems like a lot of the time, fandom breaks down into simply just what people like or dislike with people very rarely thinking beyond the reasonings for those opinions. Which is fine really, no one's on trial here, it's just an opinion after all.

The problem occurs when people take these difference in opinions and treat them like fighting words. You see people fighting over some very subjective things where there's no obvious right and wrong and wonder "Hey, if that guy acts like that, I wonder if I do that sometimes too."

Anyway, the Nostalgia Critic's message is a very simple one of people have their difference in likes and dislikes and it doesn't really make them bad or whatever if they differ from one's own.
