Starzinger movie (1979)

Here's the 22 minute Starzinger movie, in widescreen ToeiScope. This was shown as part of the Toei Manga Matsuri, a semi-annual festival of anime and tokusatsu featurettes that were shown when the kids were on vacation from school (find out more by clicking HERE).

Sometimes these featurettes would just be regular TV episodes cropped and blown up to widescreen 35mm film, but (despite what Anime News Network's encyclopedia page claims) this is not one of those, it's an original Starzinger story not shown on television.

EDIT: Also, here's an easter egg for people who visit my site: the trailer for the movie can be downloaded here.

Dororo (1969) - Episode 05

That guy  is definitely a Tezuka villain if I ever saw one....

Just as the first two episodes dealt with Hyakkimaru's origin story, in this episode we get some background on Dororo's parents, and the situation that led to him becoming an orphan.

This episode has been long delayed due to some minor technical problems. One thing we're hoping will speed things up (somewhat) is that from now on I will be releasing my own encodes of the episodes as they are finished (with the usual fonts that I use), and the folks at Hi no Tori Fansubs will be releasing a separate encode (with their fonts and including a splash page). Without getting into boring technical details, the differences in our encoding methods led to repeated situations where I would ask them to re-encode an episode several times if on-screen text appeared one frame too early or too late, and it's simply easier for me to fix tiny problems like that on my own.

I'm still very happy with the partnership between TSHS and Hi no Tori, and we even have some other possible joint projects in the works after Dororo is completed.

Mach GoGoGo! (1967) - Episode 06

Here's part two of "Secret of the Classic Car", a joint project with Luurah Productions.

The torrent is here. Direct download link is here.

Some really good episodes of Mach GoGoGo are in the works for the near future, including "Challenge of the Mammoth Car" and the three part epic "Demonic Acrobat Race." Stay tuned!

I've also re-posted a lot of dead links recently, including Gatchaman II (all 52 episodes!) and Gatchaman F. Unfortunately the latter project is still stalled while Vortex looks for a translator.

If there's one of my subtitled shows with dead links that you can't obtain via torrents, feel free to ask and I will get to it when I can. Gorg, Jeeg and Sabu & Ichi are currently being revised, so I won't be re-posting those until the revisions are complete.

Koutetsu Jeeg (1975) - Episode 07

In this episode, Hiroshi's stubbornness causes Michi to go on a solo mission with the Big Shooter, and she winds up in trouble when a Haniwa Phantom shows up.

Oh, and the Mecha-Don finally proves to not be completely useless...Don and Pancho successfully use it to get Hiroshi out of a tight scrape before it is smashed to pieces as usual.

I'm working on a few minor revisions to episodes 1-6, should have a batch of those uploaded in the near future as well.

Sukeban Deka II (1985) - Episode 15

With Yukino and Nishiwaki both having fallen to the Kyosha Seven, now they only need to make a victim of Okyo before moving against Saki herself...

Also in this episode, we find out that Saki's iron mask has uses that aren't just symbolic. And in addition to narrating, Ryoko Kinomiya also provides the voice of Shisha.

Something I forgot to mention last time...with the release of episode 14, I've completed subtitling the first third of SDII. Massive thanks to Aardvark, Phillip S. and Charles L. for their help! Also a shout-out to Accius (my first SDII translator in the 1990s) and Verne Innhel for his excellent Encyclopedia Idollica web page.
