Sukeban Deka II (1985) - Episode 20

In this episode, Saki leaves to visit her hometown, unaware that a new Seiroukai killing machine is after her. But before he became the deadly cyborg Hayato #2, this man was named Takeshi, and he just happened to be Okyo's childhood love who was shipped off to an institution for juvenile delinquents.

And for everyone who gets excited when I release another SDII episode, I have to say I'm just as excited myself whenever an episode is completed and ready for release. I have waited SO many years to see this show subtitled. Subtitling may involve a lot of hard work, but I feel it's definitely worth it. And seeing all the nice comments from people who enjoy my releases makes me very happy as well.


Thanks again to Aardvark, Phillip S. and Charles L. for all of their help! 

The torrent is here. Direct download link is here.

EDIT: thanks to addingmachine for identifying the song title I was looking for. Translated lyrics will be included on a future revision of this episode.

Also thanks to Tony H. for sending me some cool CDs, including the soundtrack album to the Sukeban Deka movies. I'll try to post rips and scans of the booklets soonish for everyone to enjoy.

Yoko, Akie and Haruko are each so cute in their own different ways. I bet Japanese idol fans really enjoyed this show when it first aired.

Yusei Shonen Papi (1965) - Episode 47

The plot of this episode defies description, so I'm not even going to try. Suffice to say it may be one of the weirdest Papi episodes ever made (and if you're familiar with the show, you'll understand that's really saying something!)

In other Papi news, D. Merrill posted some more translated manga on his excellent Let's Anime blog. You can check out the manga (as well as some articles he's written about the series) by clicking here.

Another great site for Papi articles (as well as lots of other anime & tokusatsu shows) is Shonen King's blog, Black Sun. You can check out his stuff about the show, including an amazing article about Papi merchandise, by clicking here.

Apparently there's a DVD set of Prince Planet (English dubbed Papi) coming out in the near future. While I don't usually watch English dubbed programming of any kind (anime or otherwise) this particular dub has nostalgia value for me since it was the first anime I ever watched as a young child. You know how it is...whether your first anime is Speed Racer, Star Blazers, Voltron, Robotech, Dragonball Z, Sailor Moon or whatever, it always brings back memories to hear that shoddy acting and censorship ("Good thing that spaceship that just exploded was piloted by robots..." - "Eiger's okay Derek, he just had the wind knocked out of him.") that you grew up with.
