Donation Drive Complete!

Thanks to a fan for double donating to complete our donation drive! I know it's kind of a weird year to be asking for so much, but sometimes that's just how much the materials cost to run the site.

I especially appreciated the donations that came with messages of encouragement. I always love hearing from fans and learning about where you're from or what series you started with, etc. Hope to see you guys on the forums and if not, hope you guys are still enjoying the stuff we're still putting out.

Thank you to our donators and thank you to our fans!


Kyuusei Sentai Wakusaver Season 2 Ep 2 released

With Toei being off this week, why not check out some GIGA toku?

Did anyone else see this? I was pretty surprised. Discuss below!

Begun the Rider Wars has

Post from Luna:


NHK did a giant poll with half a million votes ranking best show/movie, best Rider, and best music.

Notable highlights: Den-O basically wins with best show, best Rider and top 5 for music. Build is ranked #5 in show but before that the most recent show is OOO.

Best show/movie only showed the top 25 so Wizard/Saber/Ghost are not ranked. Hibiki just barely squeaked in at #24.

The top 10 of best Rider are all titular Riders EXCEPT for #10, KR Grease. Eternal is incredibly popular for a movie Rider, coming in at #17. Genm actually beat Ex-Aid in popularity, #19 to #29. Despite the actor's super popularity right now, Drive is only #30. Saber hits #58, Ghost #69, Wizard #14.

Music is actually a bit surprising, Excite hits #1 followed by Be the One at #2, and Anything Goes at #3. Top ten are all main themes except P.A.R.T.Y ~Universe Festival~ from the Zi-O movie, Time Judged All (banger) and Elements.

Overall I agree with most of the rankings here so I'm rather hopeful that Toei sees this and makes some decisions accordingly as how to approach Rider from hereon. (Not hiring the Ghost/Saber writer again would be a big step forward)

Komi Can't Communicate 07 released

With brief guest appearance by Kinoshita Ayane!

Penultimate episode! Anyone check out the anime?

Ayakashi Toumetsuden Kougaiga Batch released

Includes a v2 for episode 4 which fixes the full opening lyrics, the full opening, and the promo.

v2 out for Komi Can't Communicate 01 (For real this time)

This is funny. So apparently I uploaded the torrents for the v2 files. Then promptly deleted them, thinking they were the originals.

But it should be fixed now!

So I saw Vulcan & Valkyrie...

What the heck happened there? Join the discussion on the forum and tell me your theory as to what happened to the writer.

Giving credit where it's due on our anniversary


There's a translator's day?

I think we can all agree that I receive too much credit as the faceman for the group. From timers who make sure the captions don't fly by so quickly that your eyes bleed, to editors and qcers who offer corrections, suggestions, and everything inbetween to make the final product as good as it can be. Fansubbing is a collaborative effort and there are too many people who don't get the acknowledgement and credit that they deserve. If the subs were just the translations are I wrote them out in my first draft, the quality would be a whole lot poorer for it



Komi Can't Communicate 05 released

Take a sec to look at our anniversary post if you'd please. It'd be a great help to us.

#TV-Nihon turns 19 / Donation drive

Today #TV-Nihon turns 19. It's a bit of a bittersweet celebration considering that we're no longer working on the shows that made this site famous in the first place. But we've been working on GIGA toku and the jdorama Komi Can't Communicate. I subbed a few commercials in my free time too. So hopefully people are still enjoying the stuff that we are putting out. Thank you to everyone, both staff and fans, who are still sticking around with us today.

But we soldier on. And running the site costs money. For this year's donation drive, we're shooting for $980 dollars. This covers server costs, seedbox for seeding our torrents, buying materials, software licenses etc. We're hoping to upgrade the backend of our site too. I know it's been a rough couple of years, but we appreciate any kind of support you guys can give. Thanks!


takenoko watches BL dramas...

Zettai BL ni Naru Sekai VS Zettai BL ni Naritakunai Otoko

https://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Zettai_BL ... Otoko#Cast

Not a realease, just talking a show I saw yesterday. Four episode series about Build realizing that he's a character in a BL manga, and doing everything possible to avoid falling into the tropes of the genre

Pretty funny and short. Got a lot of toku actors in it like Build, LupinRed and Blue, KyouryuuGreen, Ryuuga from Garo, Mamoru from Amazons, as well as Horobi. Yutaro is also a main character on the show, he was a guest on Revice recently and he's a regular on Komi Can't Communicate

There were spelling errors in the captions I used, so I cleaned them up:
