Japanese Commercials for Sunday May 23 released

In case you haven't caught the news, we aren't doing Saber or Zenkaiger anymore. But we'll still put out commercials from those shows, so that's what this is

Smaller groups need any resources?

Do any smaller groups need any resources? We're still grabbing captions every week, and we just got a certain hyper battle DVD. Shoot me an e-mail if you're interested

Cancellation of Saber/Zenkaiger

It brings me no joy to announce that after discussing the situation with my staff, we will no longer be continuing work on either Saber or Zenkaiger. Not even softsubs. Personally, I couldn't continue work on either series if it means worrying that it would paint a target on our members backs. I don't want to mess with people's livelihoods or be responsible for being the one that got them in legal trouble.

So what does this mean for our group? We'll continue subbing as usual, but with series that aren't as contentious. If you like the stuff we sub in general, hopefully we pick stuff you'd also enjoy. Heck, we might even sub future KR or Sentai stuff and release it in some cheeky sneaky fashion in the future. Just not Saber or Zenkaiger for now.

What we will continue to do:

  • Sub the commercials
  • Create discussion threads
  • Update our wikis for the series

We don't want to leave you high and dry, so we'll be plugging other fansub groups that are working on Saber and Zenkaiger. So far, I know that Over-Time is okay with being plugged, I think they're doing Zenkaiger. If your group is comfortable with being plugged here, please let us know. (Only contact me if you're a member of said group, for obvious reasons I want to make sure they want to be plugged on our site.) Also, if you're an international translator for Saber/Zenkaiger, lemme know and I'll happily plug you too.

Thank you to the fans of both series for giving us their support all these years. I hope you understand the situation that we're in and what lead us to the decision that we made. It's just not worth it to me if it lands a friend in prison or kicked out of Japan or something. Hopefully you'll check back and we'll be working on something that will delight you just as much.

Shirakura speaks

Someone pointed this out to me:

https://www.nihonhero.com/post/shinchiro-shirakura-speaks-up-on-the-fans...

 “It was like ‘If the pheasant didn't ring, then it wouldn't have been hit’”

Kind of makes you wonder who the pheasant is in this scenario. The fans, the fansubbers, or Toei itself.

Redid the gender field

I was told the current character limit was too limited, so I had to redo it to add a longer length. Sorry, but you'll have to redo it

takenoko blabs about stuff

Hi all,

First, an apology for the lateness of this reply. I know a lot of you have questions about the future of this group. It doesn't help that I also feel overwhelmed and have been avoiding tough conversations and decisoins.

Please be cool with Toei. They're the makers of these shows that we're fans of. It's perfectly in their right to ask us to stop. All we do is put funny moving subtitles on top of their creations. We don't want people sending death threats or insults or doing anything in our name that would make us or the fandom look bad.

I've responded to their e-mail informing them that we've removed all links to their files from our website. You won't find any files here anymore, sorry. This is our hobby and we love it, but it'd be a terrible blow to us if any of us were hit with legal problems because of this. We can't make fansubs if it's not safe to do so. In my e-mail response, I told them I respected their work, took their letter seriously, and also cheekily asked if we could work for them legally (A guy can dream right?)

But that doesn't mean we're dead either. We're still a fansite and we'll still have discussions about Toei shows and movies.

Personally, I still want to translate these shows. I think that maybe we can do the translations and just release the soft subs? You'll have to buy the Blu-rays or grab the raws from somewhere else like Tokyo Toshokan or Nyaa, but what other people post isn't my responsibility. This is just to keep our own hands clean.

I still want to post to the super thread at some point, but at 174 replies, it might take me a while to do so. So check back there in a bit, I might have replied or answered a question you posted!

People have been asking what they can do to help us. I don't really know, besides staying cool fans. It's been really heartwarming receiving all the e-mails and posts and visits to our discord server and meeting with y'all. There's definitely been times when it's felt like our time in the sun has passed and it's time to move on, but it's cool to know that there's people out there that still like us.

And on a personal note, this has been some week for me. My mom had heart problems Monday morning so they took her in an ambulance to the hospital. The next day, she was in surgery to have a pacemaker installed. Getting a letter from Toei that threatened my hobby and identity wasn't really what I needed to end the week. On top of that, my Switch broke lol. It's been stressful, but it's been fun responding to your e-mails and goofing with you all on Discord and stuff.

For now, I'm still waiting for a response from Toei before making any major decisions. Till then, hang out. Let's talk toku, games, and whatever old and new. Our biggest strength is our bond as a community. Thusly, I'm going to plug the members-only lounge again in case people from different locals wanted to meet or just talk with people who are close by. There's also the self-introduction thread that has an age poll. Edit: The Otaku room is also a good thread.

Finally, thanks to the different groups for responding to me. Like KRDL or people who work as lawyers or different toku blogs like Himitsusentaiblog or people from Ov-erti Me or others that I'm overlooking. Also, I'd like to anonymously post some of the letters I've received since I think they're worth sharing at some point.

Edit: I can't stop watching this

Gender text field added to Forum Profiles

Hi all!

Real quick thing today. Deleted the previous gender fields and just changed it into a text field so that you can write in whatever fits you best.

You can change it by doing the following:

Click the person icon in the upper right

Click User Control Panel

Select the Profile Tab

Under the field Gender, write in whatever makes you most feel comfortable

Self-introduction thread

Since we've got a new influx of people, just thought it might be fun to recreate the introduce yourselves thread. I've included a poll to see what age range our fans are from. Feel free to tell us about when you found tokusatsu, #TV-Nihon, fansubbing, or just tell us about your hobbies our post pics of your pets. Whatever speaks to you

I'm take, I've been a tokusatsu user since the early 2000s. I turned 40 last October. I love all my children, but some of my favorites are Blade, Kabuto, Gaim, MagiRanger, Go-Onger, Gokaiger, Decade, Garo, Ryukendo, etc.

I'm sure a lot of people are waiting for news about our plans for the future. I know that personally, I'd like to continue translating, even if it means releasing just the subtitles or something. But when I have more formal news. I'll make a news announcement about that

Forum thread

Welcome to #TV-Nihon Zero-Two

Since we no longer host illegal files on this site, as part of our next phase, we're going to be focused on fostering the fan community. First, the forums.

We have a fanfics forum - Why not take a moment and stop by and read some? Just be nice

Members-only lounge - Remember when we made maps to figure out where our fans are? We also attempted to set up meet-ups between fans. I know the lockdown has a lot of us feeling lonely. If you want to try meeting a fellow fan, feel free to use our forums to do so. Just remember to use good sense and caution when meeting any stranger.

Also, we still have many subtitled works that aren't owned by Toei. Maybe use this time as an opportunity to check them out?

Kamen Rider Zero-One Real X Time discussion thread

Let's have a fun discussion of the Zero-One movie, Real X Time.

This is merely a fan discussion of the movie. #TV-Nihon does not condone going to pirate sites to illegal download copyrighted material that does not belong to us.

Garo -Versus Road- HD720 Batched

It's been almost a year since the series ended. Anyway, I've finally batched the HD720 format, so here it is.

Like what takenoko said: Renamed 6.5 to 6Half so that it'd sort properly file nameswise.

Appreciation for the fans

Newswise, nothing to report. I sent a reply to the e-mail and will see how it goes from there.

Meanwhile, I just wanted to express my appreciation for the fans who've enjoyed our work. I don't know what our future will look like tomorrow or the next day, but we certainly couldn't have made it 18+ years without your interest, zeal, support, friendship, free labor, I mean help, etc.

Like I commonly say, we're not a for-profit group. Everyone here is a volunteer and we all have full-time or part-time jobs on the side to support ourselves in addition to working on these subs. We like this work and it's our hobby, so if we can't sub Toei shows anymore, we'll probably find something else to work on. Hopefully some of you will follow us with those projects in the future. Realistically, a lot of you won't, but I hope you all have good lives and that our paths cross again if this has to be the end.
