Professor Randou sends out an aerial Metal Beast after having discovered one of Getter Robo Go's weaknesses—said Metal Beast keeps targeting aircraft over in some mountains, and the Getter crew scramble to take it down after learning of a nearby passenger airplane that Mei is in...

Momoko Kikuchi in: Sotsugyou -GRADUATION- (1985) [v2] + Extras

Image Fansub credits can be found in the link above. v2 release of the "GRADUATION" TV special I posted months ago. TL;DR — v1 has some mistranslations and other errors I missed. These have been fixed by sotoo. Also included two bonus features related to the TV special that were bundled in the same DVD box set that "GRADUATION" was in—these include an interview with Momoko Kikuchi about the movie, and a behind-the-scenes special that aired on TV sometime before "GRADUATION" did. Both specials were timed & translated by Windii, with some folks from InkaSubs providing TLC on the BTS special.  Lastly: I'm including the TV special's original stereo broadcast audio, courtesy of  HorrorMatterSawYou. Perhaps someone else can manage to stitch this onto the DVD version :^) Enjoy!

New Maple Town Story - Palm Town Chapter (Movie Version) [35mm 4k Scan]

Image Fansub credits can be found in the link above. "Movie version" of New Maple Town Story's first episode that was screened in one of Toei's festival things that they held yearly in the 80s. I put quotations around "movie version" because all this really is is just the first episode of New Maple Town Story left intact (dubbing and all), with the exception of Patty's flashback sequence in the beginning being replaced with footage from the final episode of Maple Town Story. Regarding the translation: yes, I'm aware this had been previously subbed. However it was riddled with translation errors (unsurprising, considering the subs had been lifted from an ARR release of all things) so this has been re-translated & re-timed from the start. As a little "bonus", so to speak...there are two audio tracks you can select from in this release. First one is the mono audio from the 35mm print itself, and the 2nd is stereo a

Captain Tsubasa - Run Towards Tomorrow! (1985) [35mm 4k Scan]

Image Fansub credits can be found in the link above. Back with another Kineko Video collab. This time we got an English fansub for a Captain Tsubasa compilation movie released in 1985—this was passed off by Saizen Fansubs for subbing due to the nature of its movie (it being a compilation and all), and the only existing English subs for this were some sketchy ones from an old YT video. Thus, no "proper" subs really existed for this movie, but that will have changed now with today's release! As per most of Kineko Video's releases, this is the first time the movie has ever seen an HD release. Since this takes footage from the TV show this is technically also the first time that the TV show has had any sort of footage released online in high quality. Only a few shots of restoration & some color adjustments were done for this movie, but other than that this is mostly untouched. That's all for now. Enjoy!

Sonic Soldier Borgman - Episode 10

Image Fansub credits can be found in the link above. Today's episode is more of a bittersweet one...while the ending isn't outright tear-worthy material or something, it did have me thinking for a while. I liked this one. Anyways, Molly meets a new kid, albeit a rather unusual one—he claims to be 50 years old and even carries with him powers of an extraordinary kind! Not a surprise that the demons would want to use him for their own advantages...
