HOORAY, A NEW YEAR!
What’s crackin’, y’all? Can anybody guess what time it is? Bingo! As done once before, we’ll be outlining our progress and/or future plans by category and will address your questions (if any) in the comments below. Just to go ahead and throw this out there, we still think that you guys rock for cheering us on so earnestly even if we’re not exactly who you’d call the fastest group in town. Let’s have our fingers crossed that 2016 will bring out the best in us, and oodles of success along with it… 파이팅! Why yes, that is Korean! Are you surprised? Perhaps even jealous? Anyway… Step on up! We won’t bite… Maybe… Hahaha, but seriously we’d be happy to chat so don’t be shy! [:
We have a handful of episodes that are just about finished, but they’re pending TLC. The script that Shourikan is currently looking over is already halfway translated, so we’d like to think that things are going smoothly enough. It’s pretty much “they’ll be out when they’re ready”, though we can’t offer any sort of estimate as to when. We will say this, though! We weren’t able to release as much as we’d have liked last year, so we’re hoping to make up for it this time around.
It’s right where we left it, with episodes 01 – 05 and the movie fully translated… Buttt!! Our friends over at Grown Ups In Spandex have begun working on it (and it should go without saying that they’ll pass us in due time), so there won’t be another peep about it from us now that it’s officially taken care of. You can bet your cookies that the project is in good hands, so please give them your wholehearted support! Really though, we wish you the best of luck fellas! – Salute –
The next two episodes (51 – 52) need to be looked over, but they should be out reasonably soon… Look forward to it! Even though our partners at Rampage Subs are on episode 54 (in Portuguese), in actuality Mio has at least up to episode 56 translated. We’ve also begun checking Bad Apple’s work, but they’ll be redistributed via batches (or should we say ‘bushels’, hm?) as opposed to individually since they’ve already been available for awhile. With that said, the release pace has never been better and we can’t thank Cel and our new member SentaiFan enough! ^-^
Episode 05 is pending TLC, and you best believe that Sky’s been translating ahead as per usual. To be rather straightforward… We’ll try to release as much as possible, and are at least expecting to break into the double digits this year. Also, in regards to some comments from anonymous posters who we’ve noted on /m/ (or is it the same dude over and over?)… We’d like to give a polite reminder that we’re not slowing down Kamen Rider 1971 whatsoever, or any other KITsubs projects for that matter. Sky has long finished up to episode 70 (if not more) in the translation department, so rest assured knowing that she’s cool and not responsible for any of the delays.
Uh, not really sure. This isn’t a top priority or anything, so apologies up front if anyone has been kept waiting for something in particular… Though if you ‘have’, then please let us know and we’ll be sure to get around to it sooner. Next up are the Goggle V episodes (and movie) that were translated by Dead Fish FanSubs and Goggle-Anon. After that, it’ll be the DaiRanger movie that was released by Hikari-Senshi (assuming that we get the approval to do so). It wasn’t bundled in with the Shout! Factory DVD’s, and I’ve heard that it’s filed under an entirely different license so it should be fine… Right? Right?? Correct me if I’m wrong, though… Pleaseee… Otherwise, if you have stuff that is considered “hard to come by” or anything else that we’re looking for then please share it with us because the more the merrier! I’m sure that we’d all be grateful if you did, hehe.
Hmmm… Though it isn’t quite set in stone just yet (we’re still hammering out the finer details), we might be collaborating on a standalone movie with another group that we’re good friends with. Once JAKQ is finished (or well under way, like maybe around episode 15 or so) we may take the opportunity to start up on a certain 80’s Sentai. We’ve also been considering a few Metal Heroes as potential projects, so there’s that too. But don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten that our biggest responsibility is to finish what we’ve started so we’ll try not to get carried away. :’P
Thanks for reading, and we hope that you have a wonderful 2016! Be sure to make the most of it!
