Kamen Rider episode 29!

Kamen Rider episode 29:
[MKV] [Script] [AVI] [MKV Torrent] [AVI Torrent]

 Hayato gets the headline image, but Taki's the one that really shines in this episode.  He is a man that walked (and fought) amongst legends, and this episode really shows it.
This episode is a little all-over-the-place.  There are a few plot points that come up, and never really get mentioned again.  And Shocker's plan is kind of vague...  But the final battle between Rider 2 and the monster is nice!  A lot of really great close quarters fighting.  And any Taki-centric episode is A+ in my book!

While we're here talking, let me address something about our ddls.  If you look back through the archive, you will notice a lot of dead links for episodes.  You'll see them spread across the myriad of download services that we've used these past two years, especially in the wake of Megaupload.  We do not update these links.  Once an episode has been released, we will rarely (if ever) come back to the release post.
You should be getting your ddl links from here - our Official Release Page.  It's linked on the sidebar, but I wanted to talk more about it here.  We've received a few messages on Facebook and Twitter about dead links, and I figured that it might help to inform some of our new fans about this section of the blog.  These links are always updated, always up to date, and this is where you should be going to report dead links.  Right now everything is hosted on, and they have been a HUGE help to us!  You can get the episodes from us, or from their site.

Also, I mentioned our Facebook page earlier... you should join us!  We post pictures, talk to other fans, and you can get updates on future releases.  We've got 1,340 fans of this post, and that's really amazing!  You can follow us on Twitter, too.  I try my best to post there, but I'm constantly tweeting in my personal account and I always forget to log in...

Anyway, enough off-topic rambling.  We'll be back next week with a surprise release!  Also keep an eye out for Stronger 27, coming soon!

Kamen Rider episode 28!

Kamen Rider episode 28:
[MKV] [Script] [AVI] [MKV Torrent] [AVI Torrent]

What classic science fiction series would be complete without a Mole-Men episode?
    In this episode, Shocker is abducting people and turning them into cybernetic mole slaves to dig beneath Japan's oil refineries.  Why?  To blow them up, of course!  In their history of crazy plots... this one actually kind of makes sense (minus the mole men, of course.)
    This episode also has a particularly brutal sword fighting scene where, you guessed it, Rider 2 grabs hold of a Shocker grunt's sword.  But then things escalate pretty quickly, and it turns into one of the best fight scenes we've seen yet!
   And of course, more Colonel Zol being a generally awesome villain.

    Also with this episode, I'd like to introduce two new staff members on the original Kamen Rider!  Along with Sky79 and me, Steel A Jeeg, we now have HeatMetal from Over-Time doing TL checks and helping with editing and Scissors Jaguar (or 鋏ジャガー, actually!) from the /m/subs forums timing and working on rough drafts!
    We've worked with HeatMetal before, his TL checks are great, and we're happy to have him as a semi-regular member of the team!  And  it's nice to see Scissor Jaguar lending a hand to a Rider instead of killing their families...  Well, that, and timing is an incredibly time consuming and important part of the job!

And keep an eye out this episode during the eyecatch.  We're trying something new, born from my eternal love of Rider trivia.  I hope you enjoy it!

Come back next week for Kamen Rider 29, and soon after for Stronger 27 and Super-1 05.

PS: It's been brought to my attention that we've been using an uncommon font for our episode titles!  If you see BIG BLOCKY TEXT for the episode titles on our mkv releases, then you'll need this font.  It's a small file, and a quick install.  I'll be embedding this file in our mkv releases from now on!

Joint Release: Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider: Fourze & OOO: Movie War Mega Max

Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider: Fourze & OOO: Movie War Mega Max
[Torrent] [Script] [Over-Time Release Post]

This is our "secret" project along with Over-Time.  Was it really such a secret, though?

The Seven Legendary Riders are in trouble.  The world's newest evil secret organization, Foundation X, has aided in the research on some of the most powerful technology known to man.   Gaia Memories, Medals, Astro Switches...  When one rogue takes that power to use for himself, their power won't be enough.

The current generation of Riders will have to team up if they want to defeat Foundation X.  In the tradition of the Kamen Rider crossovers from the classic era, these four heroes will team up to take down this new powerful enemy.

Mega Max is seriously entertaining.  It has some of the best fight scenes we've seen from Kamen Rider in a while, thanks to the directing of Koichi Sakamoto (Kamen Rider W Forever: A to Z/The Gaia Memories of Fate, Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy) one of the most talented Tokusatsu directors in the industry.  That's a big statement to stand behind, I know.  But watch it and see for yourself.  There is a cinematic feel to this movie, a larger than life scope, that most Kamen Rider films are sorely missing.

However, a word of caution... if you have ANY interest in OOO, don't watch this movie until you've finished that series!  Mega Max takes place in continuity, following end of OOO's story.  There is a pretty big spoiler involved at the core of the OOO portion of this movie.  If you don't mind, or if you've already seen OOO, then proceed.  But if you think it won't be a big deal.... trust me, it kind of is!
And yes, that pun was intended.

Thanks for watching, as always.  We'll be back in a few days with Kamen Rider 28: The Subterranean Monster Molerang!

Kamen Rider Skyrider episode 28!

Kamen Rider Skyrider episode 28:
[MKV] [Script] [AVI] [MKV Torrent] [AVI Torrent]

    Here we are, the end of Skyrider's second arc.  The stakes are at their highest as NeoShocker and their 2nd Generation Monster Army are moving to destroy Japan.  Last episode, the Legendary Seven Riders came to the aid of Hiroshi just in the nick of time.  Now they are entrusting their special training to their new comrade, officially named Skyrider, to defeat GranBazami. 
    This episode will be the last time we see a lot of things.  The opening and ending, for one... and this is the last time we see Skyrider's first costume!  The new one is... less than impressive.
We also get to see the Riders' special training, a sequence that is genuinely one of the best in the series.      The whole build up and the training itself is such a cool moment in the series.  And it's always great to see all of the Riders team up!

I have to apologize again for the extended hiatus.  It was all on me.  Sky and UK Windom were still around, and I was the one wasting time with all of their hard work on these episodes.  Last minute renovations in my apartment caused the delay, this was AFTER the previous renovations.  But now everything's done, and the furniture is all moved back in, and things have settled down.  No more delays.

As a matter of fact, we're working on three projects right now.  Our next release, Kamen Rider 28 (where I'll introduce some new team members,) Stronger 27, and a special joint project between ourselves and Over-Time!  I won't spoil what it is, but I will say that tonight's release isn't the last time we're going to see the Legendary Seven for a while...

PS: Please let us know if you need any torrents seeded, scripts reuploaded, etc...  But hopefully everything has been running smooth these past few weeks.  Thanks for watching!
