Kamen Rider Episode 21!

Round 2, Kamen Rider vs. ToxicMothra.  The final showdown!

After a notable absence, Taki is back in action this episode!*  And he's ready to help Ichimonji stop Shocker's plot to unleash a swarm of poisonous moths on Japan.  And Goro has plans to dress like a lady, and discover that he's pretty comfortable in a dress.  It's a double cross-dressing double cross!

I absolutely love ToxicMothra's design in this episode.  Then again, I'm always pretty fond of Toei's poisonous moth designs.  That's probably why Inazuman is one of my favorite Tokusatsu shows ever...
Oh, and if you're a fan of collateral damage, this is the episode for you.  Some smashed property and exploded buildings are waiting for you!

Kamen Rider episode 21:

There was an error with the AVI, so we're reuploading it now.  Check back soon! It's up!

*Don't ask me for a source, but I read that Taki's actor was injured on set during these episodes, hence his absence in episode 20.  This is also why you can see him limping, or filmed from the waist up in certain scenes.  He was injured 5 times in the years he was filming Akumaizer 3, Robot Detective K, and Kamen Rider!  Once I find proper English sources, I'll link them.

Check back next week for a quick return to Skyrider, as we bring you the dramatic conclusion of last episode's huge cliffhanger!

Update: There's a typo in the episode at 22:46, it says "plan" instead of "plane."  The script is correct, but the episode has the typo in it.  It's not really a big enough reason to do a v2 release, but we'll definitely correct it for the batch torrent in the future.

Kamen Rider Episode 20!

It was fun spending some time with Skyrider and crew, but it sure feels good to get back to Ichimonji and Tachibana.  Don't worry, we won't leave you hanging for too long on the conclusion of Skyrider's two-part cliffhanger.  We'll get to it soon, I promise!

Speaking of two-part stories, here we have the first part of Rider 2's battle with ToxicMothra.  It starts out slow, but it definitely builds up to some great fight scenes in a rocky waterfall.  You couldn't pay me ENOUGH to be a stunt actor in those scenes.  Some of those throws look straight up dangerous! 

There's also a Japanese version of Auld Lang Syne that gets sung early in the episode that drove us absolutely CRAZY.  Thankfully, I found a really well done translation for it.  Full credits in the script!

Kamen Rider episode 20:

Also, this week marks the one year anniversary since we stopped subbing Kamen Rider Super-1.  I know, that's not really an anniversary to celebrate.  However, we have something new in store for you.  But it's going to have to wait...  Originally I PLANNED to have Super-1 episode 5 released in time for the anniversary, but things came up and it got pushed to the back burner.  But the script is done, it just needs to be edited and QCed for release.  So I promise, as soon as we're done with the Super-1 v2s, we'll release it.  So there's something to look forward to!

Thanks for watching, and come back next week for another episode of Kamen Rider!

OOO Den-O All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Riders!

This isn't a traditional KITsubs release, per-say.  It's not even our release, technically!  This is a joint release between us, and our friends at Over-Time, the fine fellows that break their backs to bring you new episodes every week of currently running Kamen Rider shows.  We worked together to make sure this movie was true to its Showa roots as possible, and hopefully that worked out.

In my opinion, the movie was fantastic.  A lot of great action, and great moments involving Rider 1 and Rider 2.  The story is very silly at times, but no more so than a typical Kamen Rider episode.  And there is a TON of Hero Worship for our classic heroes.  Not only do we get to see all of our classic Riders, but we some other classic friends join the fray.  Like I said, it's a lot of fun.

So go check out Over-Time's release post for options on getting the movie.  For now, this is DVD only.  As the official DVD and Blu-Ray sets come out, new encodes will be available.  But if you download the script, you can use whichever video source you choose.

As for KITsubs exclusive releases...  we'll have to wait until tomorrow.  I know, I'm sorry.  I should have known.  I (being Jeeg, here) was at New York Comic Con all weekend, and I'm wiped out.  I'm sorry, I didn't realize that my age was catching up with my geeky enthusiasm.  I promise, we'll have it out by tomorrow night.  Besides, you should take tonight to watch Let's Go Kamen Riders!

Kamen Rider Skyrider Episode 20!

This is it.  The end of our much-longer-than-summer Skyrider mini marathon!  And what an episode to end on.  With this episode, the series shifts into high gear.  The stakes have never been higher for Skyrider as he faces off against two cyborg warriors; one from India, and one from Hong Kong.  And to make matters worse, they're ten times stronger than any other enemy that Skyrider has ever faced.
But the tides are turned on this two against one fight, and the odds get a little more even.

Needless to say, this is an amazing episode.  And one we've been excited about for a while now.

Skyrider episode 20:

This weeks episode was delayed because we were helping some friends out with some pretty high profile projects.  One VERY high profile project.  We'll be sure to pass the news along when it gets released.  And the other project fits in very nicely with this episode we just released, actually!

So come back next week (on time, I promise!) for a new Kamen Rider release.  Thanks for watching!

Kamen Rider Skyrider Episode 19!

This episode...  is fun.  That's about the most I can say for it.  It's an obvious filler episode, to build up some time before next episode's BIG reveal.  And the costume for WolfMan is obviously a bare-budget one (again, next week's are very impressive!) But... that's part of the charm!  It's a silly monster movie episode with a sassy British wolf and his giant megaphone.  And if you go into it expecting that, you won't be disappointed. 

Skyrider episode 19:

Next week is a big episode.  Something we've been anticipating for a while now, and the end of our Skyrider marathon.  That's not to say that we're not releasing more Skyrider, soon.  Take a look at the sidebar to see how much we have, almost ready for release.  We just think it's time to see Ichimonji and crew in action again, don't you?

Kamen Rider Super-1 Episode 01, v2!

Going back to one of the projects we started out on has been a lot of fun.  It's always bothered me that we never updated these scripts, or released hardsubbed versions of them.  So I had some free time, and I decided to do both at once.

Seeing this, it makes me even more sad that we dropped Super-1.  It will be a year since we released episode 04, in two weeks.  And now I'm wondering if it really was necessary to drop it.  I mean, SOME episodes are better than NO episodes, right?

Well, I'm getting ahead of myself.  We'll discuss that some more in a few weeks.
Until then, enjoy these MEN OF SCIENCE and their quest to conquer space with things that probably won't work in space, like FLAME THROWERS and FREEZING GAS and MOTORCYCLES.
And Kung Fu.  But I'm pretty sure that works ANYWHERE.

Super-1 episode 01 (v2):

We'll release the other 3 episodes soon, on their own schedule.  Pretty much whenever I get a chance to finish them.  And come back tomorrow night for our regular release, Skyrider episode 19!  We're building up to an electrifying appearance!
