DDL 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.

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. Read the rest of this entry »

“During the late 16th century, a trio of ninja orphans are wandering Japan and saving people from evil, specifically the evil Devil Gosun.
These people consist of kid ninja Kosuke, kunoichi Saori and an adult ninja named Shishimaru… who can transform into a lion-headed Samurai named Lionmaru!”
We’ve decided to drop Juspion, Dyna and Robot Keiji in order to focus upon more important unsubbed shows. Besides, who cares about Metal Heroes and Ultraman anyway?

I guess it was gonna come to this sooner or later.
Part of the reason stretches back to when I started scrubbing the JPN subs under “Battle-Anon”. The only reason I was doing that in the first place was that I found it dumb that nobody had even just transcribed the subs onto decent raws. It wasn’t because I liked the show, it was basically just to give people a watchable version of it. Which was the same reason I picked it back up (that, and I felt guilty for having dropped it). But now, Nemet finished transcribing the JPN subs ages ago. It’s not perfect (no fault of Nemets though, it’s with the sub source itself), but it’s watchable, which again, was the only reason I was still doing the show in the first place. Now that there’s a viable option out there, I don’t feel obligated to work on the show anymore. And frankly, working on something you don’t have to do solely because you feel obligated to do it is a pretty bad idea. Especially if it’s part of a hobby you otherwise enjoy.
The other part of the reason is tied to the fact that we have no on-staff translators. Except Dyna, all the stuff we’ve done so far (and most of the stuff we will do in the future) is translated by people I commission to translate. And honestly, I’d rather put the money I would’ve spent getting this show translated towards shows that either don’t have any subs at all, or that only have HK subs (or subs bad enough to be mistaken for hks).
I can understand if anyone’s disappointed, but I’d rather do this now than prolong the process.
I might come back to Battle Fever at some point. I might not. All I know is that I’m not planning on working on the show for a long while.

A cephalopod is any member of the molluscan class Cephalopoda (Greek plural κεφαλόποδα (kephalópoda); “head-feet”). These exclusively marine animals are characterized by bilateral body symmetry, a prominent head, and a set of arms ortentacles (muscular hydrostats) modified from the primitive molluscan foot. Fishermen sometimes call them inkfish, referring to their common ability to squirt ink. The study of cephalopods is a branch of malacology known as teuthology.
Cephalopods became dominant during the Ordovician period, represented by primitive nautiloids. The class now contains two, only distantly related, extant subclasses: Coleoidea, which includes octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish; and Nautiloidea, represented by Nautilus and Allonautilus. In the Coleoidea, the molluscan shell has been internalized or is absent, whereas in the Nautiloidea, the external shell remains. About 800 living species of cephalopods have been identified. Two important extinct taxa are the Ammonoidea (ammonites) and Belemnoidea (belemnites).
There are around 800 extant species of cephalopod, although new species continue to be described. An estimated 11,000 extinct taxa have been described, although the soft-bodied nature of cephalopods means they are not easily fossilised.
Cephalopods are found in all the oceans of Earth. None of them can tolerate freshwater, but the brief squid, Lolliguncula brevis, found in Chesapeake Bay, may be a notable exception in that it tolerates brackish water.
Cephalopods occupy most of the depth of the ocean, from the abyssal plain to the sea surface. Their diversity is greatest near the equator (~40 species retrieved in nets at 11°N by a diversity study) and decreases towards the poles (~5 species captured at 60°N).
One of Toho’s most well-known, high-budget productions, it is Kure Kure Takora! A show about the valiant Kure Kure Takora/Gimme Gimme Octopus, and his trials and tribulations. Due to how much work it takes to carefully chronicle our hero’s adventures, we unfortunately have to drop all our other shows. Yes, even ones we haven’t started, released, or even involved with. Simply put, Sayonara to it all!
