“We Do It!”

Howdy, folks! Pundercracker here! I know it’s been a long time since we made any updates, and I can assure you we’ve got our reasons. Projects aren’t dead, just a lot of things have been on our plates at the moment. Anyway, one of those things is actually really great: The awesome folks at Discotek Media have officially announced a complete, subtitled SD-Blu Ray release of MegaBeast Investigator  Space Wolf Juspion for North America in early 2019! Metal Hero is finally coming to America, baby!

Even better, we worked with them on this release! Our old Juspion subs will be used as the official subtitle’s basis, and will be polished and updated and even better than ever, and we’re receiving complete credit for our work. Heck, I got to see a screening at Otakon this year and can confirm this is gonna be a good release. As such, this means that we will be taking down all downloads and torrents of our old Juspion fansubs and ask you to please support this official release! Not only do we want to show support for more official toku releases outside of Japan, but Discotek’s an awesome little company that deserves the love and wants to test the waters with toku and other niche titles, essentially being known for taking on stuff that otherwise may never get a chance, so this is a really big deal!

Stay on the lookout for this collection early next year, and it’s even going to have some extra content from tokusatsu guru August Ragone himself! Plus, extra care and updates to the translation have been done for this set, so it’ll definitely be better than our old releases where we were figuring out how the heck to fansub one episode at a time.

Anyway, Janperson, B-Fighter and all those other good shows are still being worked on, just gonna take some time. So keep your eyes peeled in the future for more releases from us!

Juspion 1-46 No-Fixes Batch Torrent

vlcsnap-00045DDL Folder | Batch torrent

Exactly what it says on the post title: This is a no-fixes batch torrent to make downloading the series easier. Also to make it easier to laugh at goofs we/I made years ago. Joys of working on a show over a course of years, I guess.
On a semi-related note: If anyone has any mistakes to point out (Be they be typos, tl errors, etc), this is the post to leave a comment on them for.

I’ll slowly update the older posts to swap to the links here and delete the older torrents tomorrow at some point.

Well, everyone, here we are. The first project we picked up under this name is finally at its end. I can’t say much about the episodes themselves because oh boy are theySPOILERS Central, but they were a satisfying conclusion to us. Now, for some  words written by the co-runner of this group/Mr “Without-him-I-would-have-never-started-this-group”, Lew/Pundercracker:

When I was brought in on Juspion 3 years ago, I barely knew anything about the show. I knew it was a Metal Hero series. I knew it started a bit zany but got more serious later. I knew it had a giant robot and a Darth Vader knockoff as the villain. I knew Brazil ADORED it. But that was it. I went into this almost completely blind. As a result, I was just as surprised by every twist and turn as a new viewer. What’s more, it was a challenging experience for me. Learning to improve as a QC’er, knowing how to do subbing, how to edit and what to pick up on helped me to improve my Japanese skills a little bit more each time. I got to know Champ even better and found one of the best friends I’ve ever had in him, and I watched as people got to dive in for the first time on this show as well. Champ already said that this is a show that shows a time when Toei was figuring out what the heck to do with the Space Sheriffs all done. It sets up some really big ideas that it shrinks down a little afterwards, but develops a really cool story with some truly memorable moments. But what I also realized is that those moments also tied into 3 long years of my life where things changed a lot for me.
When I got done working on episode 46 last weekend, I nearly cried. Part of that was how fondly I could look back on the journey of our heroes, but it was also looking back on contributing to a community that I would never have dreamed of back in 2013. I’d always wanted to help see a fansubbed MH series through and this gave me a wonderful opportunity, and I want to thank Champ so much for bringing me on board for this. Now granted we do have other projects still, but this is a momentous thing for me and I hope that everyone watching this, and who will be watching this, has as much fun as we had working on it.
Thank you all so much for 3 years of supporting us, and here’s to many more.So long, Juspion. May you forever adventure the galaxy with that rocking leopard-print shirt of yours.
(And please put Miya out of her misery. Please.)

As for my thoughts (that Lew hasn’t phrased better/already mentioned: It is a show dear to our hearts. And we both hope everyone who has watched the show via our subs has enjoyed the journey. Sure, we hit a few snags, made a few mistakes, got stuck on a few speed-bumps. But we persevered through, we’ll be fixing the odd mistakes in the V2s, and hey, least we didn’t get overtaken in subbing it by a new group like what happened to TV-N’s Megaranger. Zing!

But in all seriousness though, me and Lew hope that whoever has watched Juspion, whether because it funny, silly, action-packed, for whatever reason, we sincerely hoped that you enjoyed watching the show. And we hope we did a good job in conveying everything the show says through our subs.

We’re not technically done with the show yet, though. We still got the preview, the video special, the aforementioned V2s, and some miscellaneous stuff to release. But, for now, the curtain closes.
Thank you all who watched the show.Read More »

Juspion 42: Friends that came from the Stars! Pippi and Hiroshi’s Story

“And we’re gonna make you pay for the wall AND the city!”

DDL | Torrent

A touching, ET-like episode. A small breather, before we hit the endgame, which begins next episode.
Normally, I’d advise watching the previews at the end, but in this case there’s some super spoilers. So, y’know, don’t watch it if you don’t want to be spoiled about the next episode’s events.


Juspion 41: Time to Duel! The Justice of the Surekill Gunman you Summoned

Wrong show, bro

DDL | Torrent

In which we have non-iron blooded orphans, backstory, and more terrible composite shots.
On a more technical note: There is a single word in the script that we (and two super awesome translators) couldn’t make heads or tales of. It’s about 1 min, 35 secs in. Right in the middle of the sentence. If anybody can figure what it is exactly, it’d be might appreciated, but for now we’re just going by context. It’ll definitely be fixed up in the v2 batch, fwiw.
