hehe. I like them both, but Kaiketsu is one of my favorite shows.

Actually it would be cool to see a few of each, or at least the first episodes.

I think I had found a subbed version of Kaiketsu #1 on NYAA torrents at one point, so seeing Fuun #1 dubbed would be great too.

In a perfect world though I would probably rather see all of Kaiketsu first.

Lion Maru to me seems like one of the few shows that uses Tokusatsu for more of a mystical experience than a sci-fi one. Others that come to mind are Henshin Ninja Arashi, Demon Hunter Mitsurugi and Akakage.

Exactly. And that's why I like it so much, as it combines some of my favorites: Tokusatsu/Jidai Geki/bit of fantastical. And if you like those you may want to check out the film The Magic Serpent, aka Kairyu daikessen You're sure to recognize some sets and props etc. from Akakage in it heh. Here is a taste: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3ewgvmXKoI ...or maybe you know of it already.

The Fuun Lion Maru was aired in full in Brazil (only country outside Japan).
In the future I will try to sub it using the portuguese dubbing as basis if nothing better is out by then.

While that effort is appreciated, there is too much lost and/or just made up from translating (dubs) a translation ....also I am already in possession of such a thing heh :shock:

I know it would be just a temporary solution.
When you say you are in possession of such a thing, you mean you got the raw on the line for subbing? That will be awesome!
No, I mean scripts from Portuguese dub to English ...assuming I still have.
