Hello! Looking for non-subbed tokusatsu shows

Post by EvilJoe » Sat May 09, 2015 11:41 pm

I found this website while trying to track down some older tokusatsu shows. I have some experience with editing subtitles onto movies, so I can appreciate all the work that's been done here. The reason I'm here is that I've got an editing project in mind, but I need to find the right show and it has to be in its original Japanese format without hard coded subtitles. I've found that it's very hard to find many of these shows from the 70s, especially since I'm not that familiar with a lot of them to begin with. This website already helps me a lot by listing so many different tokusatsu shows, so I'm grateful for that, but I still need to find unsubbed versions. Torrent sites like thepiratebay and kickass.to might have a few of these shows listed, but they usually have no seeders. If anyone could point me in the right direction or give me advice on where to find these shows in their original formats, I'd really appreciate it. :D

3 proggies... Share, Perfect Dark, and WinNY... which are Japanese p2p. You can still grab stuff off em'... but there has been a crackdown in Japan... as in arrests...

WinMX was great... pretty sure it's defunct now... or not?

NyaaTorrents has raws... ADC has stuff... maybe best source...? reg might be closed so need to know somebody...

Or you can buy...

These guys make copies of R2 dvds... or u can trade with them as I have in the past...

There are a host of sources... on the netz... BunnyHat Raws comes to mind... as well...

Just reiterating what Exodus said. There are numerous places you can download RAWs (non-subtitled) versions. All depending on what source and quality of audio/video you would like to use. Asian DVD Club you can download DVDs. Other places such as nyaa torrents, BunnyHat, various other places (you'll have to just use the internet and detective skills), you will find avi's, mp4's, mkv etc. all floating around. If you can state specific titles I or we may be able to point you in a more direct direction.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions, guys. This really helps me a lot.

I did find Asian DVD Club through googling and I submitted a registration application a day or two ago, so I'm hoping I can find what I'm looking for there, but I'll definitely try out the other sites you guys mentioned.

Well my second problem is that I'm not sure where to go to learn what Japanese shows there have been. I've found some things through Wikipedia like short lists of Japanese TV shows from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, and the tokusatsu Wikipedia page mentions a good amount of shows, but I'm sure there are a lot more that aren't listed and I'd really like to consider all the options for this project. Do either of you know if there is an online directory of Japanese/Hong Kong/Korean television shows? Something that you could search by genre or by the year it aired would be great. Or just some kind of comprehensive list of tokusatsu or asian science fiction shows.

Thanks again for the help.

These were/are the 3 companies that pretty much covered everything. There are independent productions, but they are more or less inconsequential. I am assuming you mean only TV series also. Lady Battlecop is a film, you can probably scratch that off the list.

Great! Thank you.

Are the independent productions just like amateur films/shows? I'd imagine they'd be even harder to track down than the professionally made stuff.

And do you know of any non-Japanese sci-fi/tokusatsu shows? I know the Shaw Brothers from Hong Kong made The Super Inframan, but I haven't been able to find much other than that. Looks like it was mainly a Japanese thing.

Korea: I know had 1 or 2 ...or 3. No clue names.

Independents: Mostly direct to vid stuff and of course the episodes are not as numerous. Examples: Evolver, Gramspear, Wecker ..and yes, MUCH harder to track down ...unless you live in Japan. I know there's s ton of independents now, but not something I follow so knowing and knowledge of them is rather limited.
