Sukeban Deka II (1985) - Episode 21

The Onyanko Club is holding a promotional event at a local bank, but as usual things don't go quite as planned. To make matters worse, Saki's deadly yo-yo just happens to be in the shop for repairs.

The direct download link is here, torrent to follow shortly.

And with the release of this episode, the first half of SDII has now been subtitled! Special thanks to Aardvark, Phillip S. and Charles L., without your help I never would have made it this far.

Also, scanlations of Wada Shinji's original manga are being done by HappyScans!, check out their site here. The first 15 episodes of the original Sukeban Deka TV series (loosely based on that manga) have been subtitled by Skewed Studios, check out their site here.

A special secret shout-out to the person who will be subtitling Sukeban Deka III. You know who you are...

Mach GoGoGo! (1967) - Episode 07

Here's part 1 of "Challenge of the Mammoth Car", the latest episode from this joint project with Luurah Productions. This two part story made quite an impact on my impressionable young brain when I first saw it as a kid. I remembered the Mammoth Car's freaky squeaky sound effect so clearly even during all those years the show disappeared from syndication.

Best holiday wishes!

Just wanted to wish all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and general happiness regardless of whatever tradition you happen to celebrate (or not) this time of year.

Sorry there hasn't been much activity on my site lately...my schedule ended up getting a bit hectic near the end of the year. I've still been making steady progress on lots of things, and have several episodes that are nearing completion, so there will be lots of releases to look forward to in the near future.

GeGeGe no Kitaro movie #1 (1968)

Just in time for your Halloween night enjoyment, here's the first in a series of Kitaro mini-features made for Toei's Manga Matsuri series. The first two of these were just TV episodes (in this case the two part Giant Sea Monster story), but the rest of them featured original animation. Look forward to seeing more of these subtitled when time permits.

This is a joint production with Hokuto no Gun...check out their website here. They're also doing the Kitaro manga as a joint project with HappyScans (check out their site here) and two new volumes just came out today!

Patlabor - The Next Generation (2014) - Ep 0

Here's a new version of the prologue episode, now sourced from the Bluray release (higher quality, no on-screen logo bug). There have been a few small revisions to the script as well, nothing major.

Since I've heard nothing about any other groups subtitling this show, as well as no news of a commercial release in the US, we're continuing to work on episode 1. This is actually a pretty difficult show to subtitle. Not only are the episodes (apart from #0) twice the length of the other shows I release, they're also quite heavy on dialogue, with quite a bit of overlapping dialogue as well. I do have to say that I'm really enjoying the show so far, and it's certainly worth all of the work, but a fully staffed group with multiple translators and QCers could probably get it done a lot faster.


EDIT: Another minor change to the script...thanks to Joshua for pointing out where the subtitles said "five" when it obviously should have been "six."

Also thanks to Brian for mentioning that the special edition of the Patlabor Blurays that are being sold in theaters in Japan come with booklets of the scripts. He has offered to scan the scripts from the first volume for us, is there anyone else out there who has the special editions of the subsequent volumes?
