Been a while since we last saw our Andro Super Soldiers! But this time they finally end their battle on Nutts!

And Melos continues to give us another helping of blatant sexism! Oh boy! (We’re sorry.)

Guess this is the finale for Greenman.  There’s only five episodes complete on the DVDs, and this is the fifth. So until Toho decides to properly release Greenman (and Godman) on DVD, this is the last we’re gonna see of this particular Envoy of God. Also technically the first thing we’ve finished I guess. Yay :V.

Pundercracker: Well, we’ve reached the end of this insane and sporadically-edited road. I have to say, though, that it was a pleasure working on this thing. Greenman is just outright nuts. Everything about it is rushed to the point of hilarity and what little “plot” there is only adds to the comedy gold. While I think I would have lost my mind if the entire series had been released on DVD, this finale had me cracking up in the middle of editing. If you’ve ever wanted to see a bunch of Japanese children gang up on a helpless suit actor, then this is the finale for you. I want to thank Champstice for presenting this once-elusive project to me, and HnT for working with us and cranking this out. If you’ve ever had a rough day then just watch these Greenman episodes, I promise that you’ll be feeling better in no time.

Champstice: This was an acid trip and a half (or several) to work on, and I loved every second of it. Farewell, Greenman! May you continue to invoke confusion and anger across message boards!

And in Melos,  big wigs being recruited. That is all.

Pundercracker: Our battle continues, but we’re no longer doing the “secret power” segments! Instead we focus on the Magmarian trio, a group which I used to think was just some goofballs made for Melos…until I saw a bit of their appearance in Ultraman Leo…and realized that they –can– be threatening. In this show, though, they’re more or less comical villains. That works with the story, however, and we get Melos in his continued struggle against these ne’er-do-wells.

Champstice: we’re finally out of the power-explanation episodes, yaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyooooooouuu’ve gotta be kidding me there’s a flashback episode five episodes in? (Granted, for once its a villain’s one.)

In other news: we’ve got a seedbox (thank you Ignis!) though considering how tech inept I am it might not be working right for a while/weeks :U.


Also in other news: the Biomic folks at GUIS have released Bioman 35, the first of a two-parter which features Hikaru/Seiki Kurosaki (latter is his birthname) as Shota Yamamori, a dude who feels sorta like a proto-bangai hero. He also feels similar to a later character Hikaru would play, everyone’s favourite Special MegaBeast Investigator, Juspion! {i.e: they’re both tremendous goobers}

Greenman 04 & Andro Melos 04

I’m not too sure what that thing is either folks

Instead of a deaf monster, this episode has Shiraji, who showed up previous in Godman, then here, then in the 2008 Godman special. Hasn’t been seen much since as far as I know.  So long you Uni-horned, Nipple-lacking, Ball-swinging,  Skull Gorilla creature thing.

Pundercracker: Ah yes, my favorite part of ToHo’s Bizarre Adventure: Iron Ball Run.

Champstice: Break a leg, Greenman! (no seriously, he does. It’s ridiculous)

And here’s episode 04 of Andro Melos, which looks at Wolf’s tech/powers and stuff.

Pundercracker: I’m starting to see a pattern with these episodes, but I juuuust can’t put my finger on it!

Champstice: That should be it for the Andro Soldiers’ powers/tech stuff, at least for now anyway.

Andro Melos episode 3

In which we learn about Mar’s powers.

So some of you might be wondering where the hell we fecked off to/if we were subninja’d or something.  The answer is honestly pretty simple: We’ve just been too busy with real life stuff! Hopefully things will settle down soon enough, but until then if you’re wondering why any future releases might be sporadic, you know why

Andro Melos episode 2

And here’s episode 2, in which we learn a bit more about Floru’s powers.

Pundercracker: A kinda hrnky line aside (blame Japan, not us, fellas), Melos continues to be good fun. It’s a similar format to the previous episode, though the bite-sized plot moves forth. Fun times to be had!

Champstice: What Punder said, we tried to make it sound less cringing in the plain version, but you’ll still probably know what it is when you see it

Andro Melos episode 1


None-set Version | Typeset Version | Torrent

In a joint venture with HiNoTori, we’re here to present for your viewing pleasure: Andro Melos!

Created in 1981 by Tsuburaya Productions, it’s a fun and quick watch at about six minutes an episode. Onto individual staff comments:

Pundercracker: Andro Melos is a very quirky little piece of Ultra history (even from my little knowledge of the franchise.) It’s not heavy on depth but it’s an interesting look at what filled the gap in Japanese Ultra series between the end of 80 and the start of Tiga. It’s definitely worth a look!

Champstice: Pretty much what Punder said! I’m honestly new to Giant Hero type shows, but I think Andro Melos is pretty enjoyable, especially considering episode length (I wonder if Toei would ever make a six-minute rider show?). Anyhow, hope you all can enjoy this! P.S: This is a separate project from Juspion, releases of each have relation to how soon the other is released.

Three notes under the cut
