I was just wondering if they were going to give the show its official release date since Jetman is about to come out.

I never even had the chance to watch their subs. In fact, I haven't watched Gaoranger in about ten years or so. It will be nice to watch the show with real subs since the subs I had watched it with before getting the R2 DVDs were those Hong Kong bootleg Engirish subs.

GaoSoulForever fansubbed Gaoranger years ago.

I know, I have them. I just never got around to watching them and then I figured there was no point in doing so if Shout! was going to end up releasing the show. Same goes for the people that subbed Abaranger.

They are still on KissAsian if you ever want to know.

Oh I have them all downloaded, I just am busy with other things.

Though, I refuse to touch Kissasian since they block people from their site if they have ad blocking software. A pirating site has no right to block people for not making them money.

...And? Forgive me, but your comment lacks a little context here. Were you addressing Dr Kain personally? I've been here long enough to know you a bit more personally, and I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt. So I doubt you're trying to dissuade people from buying the official release just because a fansub was made first.

KissAsian has only been good for one thing so far. Ever since Marvel took down their translated episodes of Japanese Spider-Man, I can't find it anywhere else. And while I would love to support the official release again, something I've been a BIG supporter of for a long time now, Marvel hasn't exactly released Japanese Spider-Man in any other format. And I would love to own a physical copy. The irony in all this is that Marvel is still talking about Japanese Spider-Man on their YouTube page, yet none of the videos that actually mention it have a link to said episodes. Kind of defeats the purpose of hyping it up if the fans have no way of watching it, Marvel.

Gao arrived, but I'm a little pissed off at Amazon as they charged me the full $60 instead of the normal $38ish.

I just finished Disc 2 and episodes 11 and 12 have mistimed subs. -_- Fortunately, it's only for like 5 minutes in each episode, but still. How is this still a thing?

Do the subs ever translate the word "Hyakujuu", or just leave it untranslated like on the box?

It's only been Hyakujuu Sentai so far.

The translations are 95% fine (the other 5% are minor nitpicks of how I would have translated the line), however, there is another problem I just encountered. Disc 3 is littered with all of these white flashes that are occuring during camera angle changes. Sometimes it looks like the previous image is sticking to the screen for a quick flash before going away. Some episodes were worse than others. It was really bad in episodes 16, 17, and 20.
