Kamen Rider Episode 16!
The beginning of another two-part story (Don't worry, we've got the 2nd half in the editing phase already, no waiting games this time...) Shocker takes the already powerful, and mythical, Pirasaurus, and they merge it with the strength of an invincible pro-wrestler with a heart of gold. Michi gets a haircut, Taki gets a perm, and Ichimonji reveals his secret hobby...
There were some speed bumps with this script. A lot of lines were hard to hear, and a lot of mismatched ADR dialogue. For those of you that don't know, a lot of dialogue in 70's tv shows (at least in most parts of asia) was dubbed over after the footage was filmed. That's why there was still footage of Hiroshi Fujioka from AFTER the accident, but the dialogue had to be dubbed over. For some reason, the audio mixing in this episode was way below par. And that led to some tricky translating. But after two QC passes, and two watch-throughs, I'm happy with the end result.
