“Like some kind of GRASSHOPPER maybe! With a MOTORCYCLE! Or an ALIEN COP DUDE!”
Janperson finds himself up against his toughest opponent yet: An artificial human who cannot die! But this immortal foe soon begins to question his own humanity. Is he truly human? Or is he just a weapon? As the imitation man ponders his existence, Janperson is faced with his own dilemma: Kill a human being and stop a threat, or let him escape and risk SSN advancing their nefarious plans?
This is a terrific episode with some really heavy stuff in it for a metal hero episode. And to add to the greatness, the MOTW is played by Kamen Rider ZO himself: Kou Domon.
SPEAKING OF, Kamen Rider ZO goes quite well with this episode, and we highly recommend the terrific subs by Weeaboo Shogun for what is one of my favorite bits of tokusatsu…
that isn’t Janperson, of course! Hey, 1993 was a year for both! We can get both :3c
Get ready for Gun Gibson’s training montage.
The fires of vengeance course through Gun Gibson’s circuits as he unleashes vigilante “justice” against former Neo-Guild robots. As Janperson rushes to stop further casualties, the Super Science Network unleashes their newest bio weapon on the duo! Can our Special Police Robo end Gun Gibson’s reckless vendetta AND defeat this new SSN critter?!
Riots have erupted in Robot Prison as Neo-Guild’s plans are completely revealed. As Janperson works to thwart his foes evil schemes, Gun Gibson appears with his own goal: A battle to the death with our Special Police Robo! Who will win in this clash mechanical might?!
Rumblings abound that Neo-Guild has infiltrated the Robot Prison for nefarious purposes, using the inmates for their shady schemes. Determined to get to the bottom of their plans, Janperson infiltrates the prison undercover…but gets far more than he bargained for. Not only is Neo-Guild up to something, they’ve got help: A rough-talkin’, quick-drawin’ assassin robot by the name of Gun Gibson and his partner, Carol! Can our hero solve this mystery and survive against his most deadly opponents yet?!
Pundercracker here, and oh BAYBEH~! This is an episode I’ve been so excited to work on since we began this project! In fact, it’s one of my favorite episodes of the series! The plot is incredibly fun for this story arc, taking advantage of the show’s premise in a silly and cool way. The fact that it introduces one of the best characters in the series helps it a bunch too, of course.
As a side note: See if you can spot the recycled Zyurangera and Winspector props in this episode.

The Super Science Network has a new trick up its sleeve: Transforming civilians into a Ninja Army! Through genetic manipulation, Kaoru and her goons plan to use these ultimate stealth assassins to dominate Japan! But things go a bit awry when one kid’s lazy, wimpy pop turns out to be descended from the one-and-only Sarutobi Sasuke! Can Janperson and his newfound shinobi comrade put a stop to the SSN’s schemes? And can a father learn to become a hero for his son?! New year brings new goodies from the Janperzone! This is a silly episode, but it’s the Janperson brand of weird silliness that you come to expect from this show. Stay tuned next time, because things are about to heat up, baby~!
Champstice Note: This is the second (07 was the first) of the four Janperson episodes written by Kyoko Sagiyama, who seems to be a rather hit-or-miss when it comes to writing for Tokusatsu, at least looking at western fandom. Thankfully, this episode is better than 07 was (well, I didn’t mind it, but Lew hates it :U). Time will tell how good the other two are. In the meantime, look forward to the next three, written by the main writer: Junichi Miyashita!
(Pretend this post was written by the normal Jan-P post maker. Granted, everything above the italicized paragraph was actually written by him, but details :U)

In 198X, the Earth was facing a massive crisis. The galaxy-conquering Space Religious Order Black God have truly begun their plans to eliminate Buddhism, and replace it with Christianity. But three young people have been chosen to fight to protect the sacred teachings of Buddha! They are the Buddhism Force Buddhaman!
So, uh, this is an odd little indie short made by… Buddha Film Entertainment (They named it after this, which was their first work, released in 1986), who have done a few other odd films here and there until about 2005. Maybe we’ll sub more of them, but who knows. Also: Video quality is terrible (bad VHS transfer to DVD by the director, the others aren’t great either), you have been warned. Audio is pretty crappy too, which didn’t help with translation (Bible Skin Attack?) With all that said, enjoy!
GEE, I WONDER WHO KAMEN RIDER GENM IS

Surprise! Bet you weren’t expecting us to release this! But, the folks over at Excite Subs are prioritizing/focusing on doing the main show first (and are doing a pretty great job too!), which is fair enough. So I figured, “Okay, might as well sub this until they have time to go back and do it”.
In any case, this release has three subtitle tracks: First is what MBE would’ve used terminology-wise if we had picked up the show (be grateful Excite picked the show up), second is what Excite use, plus their dialogue styling. Third track is the (mostly) de-localized one.
Two other notes: First is that the subs only go about 4 minutes in because the rest is just “Ganbarizing” or whatever advertising, and unlike the other Japanese merch you can buy, I doubt you can import one of those machines, so subbing those ads would be a moot point. Second is that you’ll probably want to watch this with Media Player Classic, and with the latest updated versions of either CCCP or KCP, otherwise you’re probably not gonna hear anything.
With all that said, till next time…
