List of Heisei Kamen Riders

Based on this pic I created this wiki page: List of Heisei Kamen Riders and their forms

Did I miss any?

Kuuga 9 reencoding

If Kuuga 9 isn't working on your PS3, that's because I messed up the settings. I'm currently uploading a new copy now which should be compatible.

Oh, and if you wonder why Kuuga has such a low resolution, it's because the DVDs are terrrrrrible:

It's got the black bars that just waste space. Normally a wide video DVD fills up all that space and gets resized. Toei, Blu-Ray Kuuga please?

264 format

So any number of good video players should handle the MP4 file. Like Media Player Classic with the codecs installed, or GOM player. Maybe VLC as a last resort? The other day I saw the Freeman's Mind guy recommend Pot Player.

Just tested Kuuga 9 on my PS3. Doesn't work. I'm going to recheck my settings, but normally these files should work on (FAT32) thumb drives on the XBOX and PS3. There's also the streaming option too.

Suprise Kuuga! 09 released. Minor announcement

Hey, Kuuga. How you doing? As always, thanks to Zeta and Cheetah for continuing to work on this series.

Minor announcement: We recently discovered that you can encode SD stuff in 264 format too. Yeah! We can get higher quality for a smaller file size. Pretty sweet. I wish we knew about this sooner.

Jokes aside, with most people downloading the HD format version, sites like EZ News switching over, and just the fact that if you can play Youtube, you probably can playback a 264 file okay, now seems like a good time to make the switch. For now, we're just doing the switch for DVD encodes. But probably with the start of Wizard, weeklys will follow suit. I'm not as bothered about switching the weeklys since they get a HD version.

If you have any feedback about this, please use this thread here. A customer service droid will promptly assist to your needs.

Happy Tanabata guys!

Maybe spend the day rewatching Densha Otoko or something.


Sentai Ranger profiles?

So I turned the names of the Rangers' into links. Unfortunately, the links don't go anywhere!

We could definitely use some people going through and writing up profiles for those characters. The chart's a bit ugly at the moment, we'll probably need to add color overrides at some point as well. But right now it's really easy to see which characters have pages and which don't.

Seiyuu Appreciation: Tanaka Rie

So how much do you know about Tanaka Rie, who voices Virgo Zodiarts on Kamen Rider Fourze?

Fanart of Mariel dressed as Virgo Zodiarts.

Did you know she played these anime roles:

Or that she did the Japanese dubbing for this Power Rangers person:

Or that she's a fan of Monster Hunter and had two seasons of an Internet show about it?

Our wiki article on Tanaka Rie.

Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary

I guess it's been 20 years since Sailor Moon's first tankoban was released. Looks like it was serialized from February 1992 to March 1997. Anyway, 20 years, crazy!

OOO Wunderbare Direktor Geschnitten Freigegeben

The Tokugawa crest. Note the aoi/hollyhock pattern on it. Heroic Lily?! Yuri?! Moonlight?

Thread / Wiki

Can you spot what's new?

Fourze 31-32 DC coming out this October

Almost in time for our birthday. That's weird, since by the time that is released, Fourze will have been over for a month or two. Also, why didn't they include this in the actual DVD/Blu-Ray release? /me shakes fist

So I made a page... about English

Don't get me wrong, I'm just doing this for fun and because it's an interesting thing to note. Anyway, add them if you think of any.

Edit: Oh hey, I spelled "about" wrong initially. Now that's ironic!


Stop calling her Kozkoz, that's wrong

Like seriously. That's not how you romanize Japanese names.

Edit: I know the url for the pic says Kozkoz, but in the same picture it spells her name correctly. Look at the background.

Go-Busters 18 released
