Patches for folks who’ve already downloaded the older versions
Here’s the first 14 episodes of Special Police Robo Janperson: A show about a robot clad in purple fighting against multiple evil organizations, and their various evil schemes.
Janperson’s first 14 episodes set up the show to go down a bit of a different route from most other Metal Heroes. Rather than a human donning a suit or armor or a metal form, we’re given a hero whose identity IS the suit by making him a robot. What’s more, episodes are set up as being less about rock quarry karate (though there is plenty of that) and more as kid friendly crime dramas with an extra helping of science fiction and special effects. We see a lot of experimenting with the strange world that the staff set up in these early episodes, with often mixed results in logic, but frequently fun results. I tend to compare Jan-P in many ways to Batman: Our protagonist is a stoic force for justice that arrives out of nowhere, saves the day, and just as quickly departs while the human cast essentially asks the same question the audience has: Just who the heck IS this guy?
These early episodes are interesting in their set up, and it’s clearly a process which sees some elements (namely the recurring human protagonists) soon fall to the wayside, while Janperson himself starts out far more robotic and blunt than we will see him later. Overall, these are a refreshing and clever batch of episodes that set up the world wonderfully. – Staff Member Pundercracker
So yeah, here’s a mini-batch of the first 14 episodes of Janperson, with some typos fixed, misc things made consistent (file names, terminology, etc), styling being made to match up to what our releases look like now instead of the rush-job I did back in 2014, etc, etc. Due thanks to Kilowog from Midnight Crew Subs for making the patches for these~. For anyone unsure how the patches work: Each patch has its own folder. Unzip them to somewhere on your computer, toss the episodes into the appropriate folder (Janperson 01 into the Janperson 01 patch folder, etc), double-click the bat file, wait for like a minute, and it should give you the updated file. The DDL folder already has the updated files. Either way, if folks who go either way could help seed the torrent, it’d be mighty appreciated.
For those wondering “Why you making a batch at 14, instead of like, 15 or further?” Episode 15 starts off a pretty serious arc, and we wouldn’t want to leave a batch on a cliffhanger like that. 14 seemed like a decent cut-off point.
Now, with all this said, I will leave a picture from each episode below to give any new folks an idea of what to expect from the show. Continue reading
