Kamen Rider OOO 40 released


40 already?! This week includes some bonuses.

Nojuku 野宿 【のじゅく】 (n,vs) camping

From No/the wild and shuku/to live. Literally living in the wild. Same kanji for juku in Shinjuku by the way.

Kamen Rider W A to Z Director's Cut and Sudou Genki music videos released


Director's Cut


Luna Dopant, played by Sudou Genki, is actually kind of a talented guy. So please, enjoy his music videos and know that he can do more than portray offensive gay stereotypes.

I guess I missed all the guest actors when we first released this. There's...

Sugimoto Aya as Maria. She was Queen Beryl in  the live Sailor Moon series. This is supposed to be her on this Garo CD.

Trigger Dopant was Deai Masayuki who was BoukenSilver.

And Nakamura Kouji, who's been in several Ultraman shows. What's with W and Ultraman actors? And Sentai.


KR OOO 39 HD released

And HD too

KR OOO 36-37 HD version 2 released

OOO 36-37 SD version 2 released

Gotou and Satonaka

Explanation for the version 2 HD out later.

Also, I forgot to include Junction 4. Just grab it off the DDL if you missed it the first time, it's not a large file by any means.

Looks like there's some mistakes in 36 and 37 and we'll be doing version 2's of them. Click the link if you want to see the details

Edit: I'm kind of surprised that no one's brought this to my attention before now. Remember you can always e-mail corrections or use the linked thread for such things. Thanks!

Additional note, this shouldn't be used to reflect the work that the quality checkers do. It's not their job to know Japanese, that's my job. Sometimes mistakes get through and aren't realized for three weeks.

Den-O 1-12 HD

Replacing episode 5 with a v2 to correct a video glitch

Toku Comics (and fanart)

So I've fallen behind on doing translations for the comics. I just did them in a batch and dropped them in this thread here:

Toku comics thread


I also found this last night. I guess it's better than before, but the problem of them looking indistinguishable from each other still kind of exists. Den-O and Faiz/Ryuki look exactly the same. And I thought Kiva was Agito for a bit. And do you remember how OOO is all green in his base form?

I know these complaints are silly and nitpicky since it's just Kamen Rider Girls, but if your whole deal is being based on something people like and it's ignored, then the whole point of the thing is ruiined. It's sort of the logic that goes into half-hearted movies based on things people like, like video game movies. Too many spinoffs try to succeed based on name or brand recognition instead of capturing what it is that people like about the original thing.

OOO 38 SD released

Primary color form
I thought this doll was cute. I call it Primary Color Combo.

Come on girls, let's go!

About #TV-Nihon

The word:
Anjyuu 安住 【あんじゅう】 (n,vs) living peaceably, (P)
A literal translation this time. An means peaceful, and jyuu means "to live (somewhere)".

Remember, no OOO or Gokaiger next week for Sunday June 19th.

OOO 36 HD released, sorta



Boo, looks like no one in distro is around. But the episode has been encoded, so you can get it from that link. A torrent will be added later.

Release 2700: Kamen Rider OOO 36 SD and Junction 4


OOO 36 released

We've finally made it to release 2700. Hitting 3000 shouldn't be too far off. We didn't have anything special planned, sorry, sometimes it's just luck of the draw. But in a way, having a Kamen Rider TV series episode be an anniversary release is very fitting since we spend most of our time working on the weekly shows.

So sit down, kids. Let me tell you a story. Every Saturday night, our magical workers will collect the raw videos from Japan, which is in the future for us. Our timers will work fast and furiously to have a pretime script ready for translation. Then sometime between Saturday night and Sunday afternoon scripts will be ready for typesetting and editing. Then over the course of a week, QCers will pour over the videos and we'll argue and try to polish the subs up. The reason it takes so much time is because, adding polish is really important. Anyone who has every made anything can probably attest to the magnitudes of improvements that each iteration adds to a piece of work.

Consequently, there's not as much time left in the week for working on non-weeklys. The staff have been talking about it over the last month, and I think I'm doing a better job about trying to do a little something each week, to help stuff keep going. the unfortunate reality is that we have a lot of backburner projects, and we just can't work on all of them at the same time. Stuff is usually constantly being worked on, but I don't think it's useful for the consumer to know the nitty-gritty details. I mean really, you guys just want to know when the next release is. So while there'll never be true transparency to the process, you can always check out our Twitter or something, where I'll sometimes drop a hint about what's going on. It's not something I want to put on the forums because, there's nothing worthwhile to discuss about it. Everything is easy to do when you're not a part of the actual process, and really, added stress and an artificial obligation to the fans won't get the work done faster. But at least the Twitter feed will give people a glimpse under the veil, so hopefully this will appease some people.

Not that I want to paint all the fans as impatient clods. Most people are pretty awesome and it's nice to be a party of a community who enjoys the same stuff as oneself. The donation drive for the servers every year is a piece of cake thanks to you guys. It makes me happy that we have a website and other stuff thanks to your support. So enjoy this release, and hopefully we'll have more backburner stuff coming out this summer.
