HeartCatch Precure 46 release

HeartCatch 46 released

The word:
Munashii 空しい 【むなしい】 (adj) vacant, futile, vain, void, empty, ineffective, lifeless, (P)
Thought this would be an interesting word to mention because the kanji for that means sky usually, but it's also used for space/vacuum



Mmm, decadent cake. You know it's decadent because it's so moist and soft. It's soft and moist because it's full of fattening fat. This is the price that you pay for your decadence! Waxing in self-indulgence. Does the cake not tempt you?

3D Movies?

So right now, I don't really know the specifics for our 3D releases. If we can do it, we'll do it. But I wanted to reassure people that we're definitely releasing the 2D versions. We're just waiting for the 3D release because it's 2D compatible and the combined pack is cheaper than buying 2D W and Goseiger movies separately


Reminder, don't ask when the movies will be out

For the W movie we're waiting for the 3D release in February, so don't expect it right away

If you have any questions, please consult Luna's handy list of DVD/Blu-ray release dates:


ZyuRanger 05 released

Chiba Reiko, who plays Mei, later on became a yoga instructor. You can see how she looked in 1995 because she did a guest appearance in one of the Hibiki commercials. For a while, there was a rumor that she was the daughter of Sonny Chiba, but this was proven false and IMDB has removed this information from her page since then. (Sonny Chiba does have children, but they took on his real family name, Maeda)

Looking at her Japanese wiki page, apparently she had never met a man as scary as Director Toujou Shouhei during the filming of ZyuRanger. In an unverified pargraph, it says the director said things like, "Mei, you idiot! Why don't you go die?!" "You sure are crying a lot! Stop it! Change in scenario! Switch heroines!" "I've never seen such an awful female warrior before!" which would cause her to cry everyday. But he strictly taught her manners and courtesy and in the end she was grateful to him. The last thing that it says is that they both came from Fukushima, so the director complained that she had a bit of an accent. Secretly she thought, "The director also has that accent..."

Like I said, I didn't see a source for this story, so who knows how true it is. Take it with a grain of salt

ZyuRanger 05 released

New Years SD version 2 released


Version one cuts off at the end

HeartCatch Precure New Years Eve Live Rocking Party Festival...

Mizuki Nana, a pretty cute lady in her own rights... and...

Some of these girls? Maybe? I dunno, ABC123 or something. I don't even know if the girls in this video are in this picture. Do you?


And including Queen from Kamen Rider W


Game Over: Rockman Series cancelled

In an effort to scale back on stuff, TN is backing out of the Rockman project. Maybe Zokusei will pick it up and continue it elsewhere. Rockman forums

Overall, for this year I really want to scale back on picking up new shows/series and just working on our tremendous backlog of stuff. It frustrates our fans who are waiting for it and it frustrates our staff who aren't able to work on stuff. I guess we'll see if we can keep that up. Persoanlly, if we can get some older series completed, that'd make me super happy

Goseiger 45 released

Buredoran Buredoran Buredoran

Goseiger 45 and we're caught up with last week

The word:
Oomisoka 大晦日 【おおみそか】 (n-t) New Year's Eve, (P)
Apparently there's a kanji for the last day of the month. So the big version of that is New Year's Eve. Isn't that neat?

Kyouryuu Sen- Just kidding, Kanon 8 released


Did you know Kanon also exists as a book?

So since there's no weekly episodes this week, hopefully we'll get some other stuff out to fill the gap. Enjoy!

ZyuRanger 04 released

Dino Buckler Morpher

First release of the year is ZyuRanger 4! And now we're all caught up with ourselves from last time. Go us

No OOO, HeartCatch, or Goseiger Jan 2, 2011

Hero card

Before we get to the New Years, I'd just like to remind everyone that there's no weeklies next week. New episodes air again January 9th

How about reading a good book in the meantime?

Time Vent: Happy New Years (to weirdo East siders

Time Vent!

So OOO was release 2627. We started the year with a batch of Keitai and Shinkenger HD, which don't increase the counter since they're not technically new episodes. So our first real release wasn't till January 2nd Rescue Fire 39 which was release 2257. Man, that felt like forever ago, was that really still this year?

For the new year, I'm hoping to work on some of the backburner projects. It'll be tough with the Rider and Sentai movies coming out on Blu-Ray in February (the 3D combo pack is cheaper than buying them individually) and Sentai Versus in March. The beginning of the year is always hectic for that reason


New Year's release: OOO 16 released


How fitting, last release of the year, OOO 16

The word:
Semeru 攻める 【せめる】 (v1) to attack, to assault, (P)
In this episode it's not used literally. See if you can hear how it's used

What's wrong with your face?!

Horrible old man

Oh yeah, Episode III review is out. The guys who put this out clearly know something about telling a story through a movie medium. If you've never seen them before, check 'em out, they're really quite funny


New Year's Eve release: HeartCatch Precure 45 released

Precure pic Precure pic Precure pic Precure pic Precure pic Precure pic Sorry, no doujin this week. Have some stuff I found while looking for splash material

HeartCatch 45 Maybe we have something else planned for New Year's Eve?

The Word:
Onshitsu 温室 【おんしつ】 (n) greenhouse, (P)
From the kanji for "warm" and "room". Makes sense to me

When will you release <insert name> movie?

Hint: If the movie is still in theaters, we won't pull a source out of the ether to release it. It's got to have a DVD or Blu-Ray release first

Lunagel has written a helpful guide for when movies will come out. Please refer to this before asking when we'll release a movie.


But really, I'd kind of prefer it if people didn't ask at all. It's just annoying and doesn't really make the process go faster. It'll come out when we have a finished product, so don't bug us about that kind of stuff
