Anyone have Machine Robo Rescue 25?

I'm trying to recreate the torrent but my copy is corrupt for some reason. If you could upload it to sendspace or or somewhere else where I can grab a copy, that'd be cool.

Yup, this was April Fools

But I do genuinely like the new site design. Look at that logo. Praise the sun!

Anyway, hope there's not too many hurt feelings about the Abaranger prank. I mean, you did see that our site was totally pink, right? And Abaranger was filmed in 4:3 format so there's no way it'd have a 1080 HD version. Notice how Abaranger didn't even have its own section on the tracker? Plus why would we even start Abaranger, we've got other stuff to do! There were quite a few clues if you looked for them.

And if you were fooled, just consider that an April Fool's day prank wouldn't be fun if everyone saw through it. That's just how things are. Well, live and learn, right?

So maybe we can keep the front page this way? The forum's already back to normal colors (needs the silver option. Can we add pink as an option too for those of us who liked it?) And the tracker needs to be set back.


The color pink

Japan is a very pink country. See that red and white? Mix it and you get pink!

But why is pink so symbolic in Japan? Well, let's start by talking about the word pink in Japanese. Momoiro is literally "the color of peaches". Nowadays, it's probably just easier to say the word Pink in English though.

This site talks about how pink is a symbolism of youth and freshness:

Sakura are also pink:

As well as the flower Yamato Nadeshiko, the symbol of the ideal Japanese lady:


So a few people started following my tumblr (Thanks, hope you like My Little Pony!) and I thought you guys would find their toku stuff interesting:

If you want a plug, just let me know and I'll probably do it.


New series: Abaranger 01 released

So this has been going on in the background a while. We're proud to release the final part in our holy dinosaur trinity: Abarangers. We've totally talked to Ais from Skewed and have his blessings to go through with this project.

So please enjoy, and don't complain about how we should be working on our other projects!

New look

So in celebration of My Little Pony and Oreimo coming out in Japan this week, we're going to change up the color scheme. We've been thinking it's been time for a shake up and pink is my favorite color.

Looking forward to releasing these with Magenta.

Oh hey, and if you like this stuff, do check out my personal blog here:


Edit: Oh, and we've got our new logo up. Yay!


Tokusatsu streaming channel?

Happy Easter folks!

A friend of mine created a channel for streaming Japanese shows.

"Jahoso is now LIVE on ( and for the greater part of the rest of the weekend i'll be beta testing to see how everything is running and streaming Gokaiger's entire season. Please take time to stop thru and if there is anything you feel needs to be brought to my attention, I will address it immediately. Also, feel free to share that this link is now live, as I've created this solely as a place for us (as a community) to watch shows together at the same time, chat about whatever and bring in more folks into our community!"

I use Twitch for streaming my games. They have an integrated IRC client so people who are watching the same thing can comment together. I really like this and wish we could have something like that for our current releases.

Also he made the new logo for our wiki: If people like it, we'll put it on the front page too.

Hurricaneger 10 years after

Looks like new V Cinema for Hurricaneger. Kind of unprecedented, but I approve!

What other series would you like to see come back? Blade and Deka next year?


Wizard 28 released and omake!

Omake means bonus. Yes, I'm doing this on the front page too.

Just the beginning / Beastbite MV


Congrats Amano Kousei! Announced marriage to actress Hinagata Akiko.

One last one for the road.


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?
