Anyone else would like to more toku from the 70's throughthe early 80's subbed?

To answer that question: If you don't even care what the fans think of your sub in the first place, then releasing them to the fans or not makes no difference, besides, he may just be uploading it to the internet, who says it's for the fans? If a bunch of people have the same interest as him and appreciate the fansub, that's great, but not necessary.
My guess too... I can't speak for Kaiju either.

And well... I've said my opinion on this topic before, 70's shows should get more attention. If you are a person who just watches Toku for the flashy cgi and explosions found nowadays and when watching and older show, you hate it because of the different effects, you can just gtfo out of this fandom, because it's not for you.

And it's stupid to point out the amount of downloads an episode of an older series gets, because, well...
If someone doesn't bother subbing them, what makes you think most of the people will care for it? There are few of us who don't understand japanese and still don't bother watching them RAW, like me.
It's like wanting to get a driver's license and you're on the learning process, you need your parents to let you take a ride, but they never let you, how are you supposed to get a driver's license then?

Let's think about this in terms of Drake's Equation. How many people do you think can do a good Japanese-English translation? Then, what percent of that population do you think cares about the particular old-school show you want to see subbed? Then, what percent of that population has the free time and inclination to translate ~52 episodes of it for no pay and very little thanks?

If you really want to see your particular favorite show subtitled, you should find a qualified translator and give them a lot of money. That's pretty much the only way it's guaranteed to happen.

Sometimes the anime fandom feels overrated, any regular Joe can say they watch anime now. That's the problam with Toku fans, we're not that big to see everything and anything subbed, in anime even the most underground shows are subbed, even though only 50 people care about them.

Umm what? :redface2: I'm sorry but that didn't make sense.

It doesn't help when 3 groups, two of them the "big" ones, sub the same shows.

Nice post!!

There's a lot of vintage mecha shows that were subbed purely because some fan with deep pockets decided to pay for a translation. I don't think toku is at the point where we have enough fans with deep pockets? But one day it will be, and that's when I think you'll see more complete subs of vintage series.

..why is it that everytime I use an example to explain myself, people lose their brains?
I was referring to the fact that if people don't seem to care about old shows, that' because no one has subbed them, they're not subbed so that's why they're not really noticed.

Indeed.

No, we didn't lose them. We're using them to try and figure out what your parents taking you to the DMV has to do with fansubs.

Anyway, older shows have been getting subs recently. However they have encountered the SAME problems as unsubbed shows...lack of interest.

Harorangers subbed like 11 episodes of CarRanger and then stopped.

They've done more than that, they're on 13 right now.

It has been years since they subbed more Changeman, not to mention Zyuranger.
Dairanger is the only show that they are trying to finish at this point.

Can't speak for Changeman but if you check their forum they're waiting for DVD's before starting Zyuranger.

I was the source for Changeman with t-n. When I left their original source went with them. I very much doubt they will ever pick it back up. It's not new enough.

There is little chance they will ever sub zyuranger. Even if they get the R2's. I mean look at all the projects they have now that barely move.

There are tons of good series out there asking desperately to be subbed, and not only from the 70's/80's. I mean, we don't have any 90's sentai fully subbed in good quality, do we?

If you're only doing it for you, why bother releasing them to the fans?

Because I'm a nice guy. I like to share. It's like baking a batch of cookies and giving them to people. I'm not a hog. Or maybe a painter that paints a picture and thinks, hmm maybe other people would like this and gives it to a Gallery for people to admire. Maybe you can't understand because you're not like that.

When I release something sub or other wise it is because I want everyone else to see how great these shows are. I love them already, and I want others to see how much fun the different toku shows are. There are shows I have that I am releasing that I don't care for, but I know there are others out there that do care for them.

While I cannot speak on Changeman's behalve, the reason they are doing DaiRanger is because they are out on DVD in Japan. ZyuRanger will not be out until Sept.

I think many people who are used to the newer shows, are more negative towards fillers. And we have to agree that many of the old shows had tons of filler material. There were some extremely good episode arcs, and there were all the filler episodes that made up a good chunk of the series.

I disagree, as they are the same. Hell, DekaRanger was nothing but filler. There was not a single episode that did anything of a continuous story. Shows like KakuRanger, Liveman, Jetman, CarRanger, all have filler episodes, but most of the episodes were enjoyable nonetheless. Take KakuRanger for example. Even its worst episode (the one with the narrator guy that documents the Hana Ninjas) is better than 90% of the filler episodes from the Sentai series in the last 10 years. However, DaiRanger is 90% story arcs and 10% filler. Not to mention is the best Sentai, or Toku, ever made.

Some people are just not used to the old super-hero format. They want an ongoing story with drama that leaves them with a cliff-hanger every second episode.

I agree in the case of Kamen Rider. Black is my fourth favorite Rider show, but I prefer the continuous arcs of Kiva, Blade, and Ryuki over Black's formulaic process.

Though, it seems that there is a growing interest to see the Metal hero shows subbed. I think if someone started doing a Metalder or Janperson project, then it would gain a lot of interest.

I want the B-Fighter series subbed. I bought all five DVDs of B-Fighter Kabuto and I would love to see it subbed. A great show that was royally ****ed over in the states.

Thank you for subbing old series. Even though all new fans will be interested, your projects would be a treat for any fans who are interested
