Video Warrior Laserion (1984) – Episode 01

vlcsnap-2015-11-27-00h27m41s767Final release of the year. For those of you who were wondering if Luurah and I have been planning on doing another project together (after Mach GoGoGo was dropped due to the announcement of a bilingual Bluray release by Funimation), the answer is yes! At one point we were discussing possibly doing Gaiking, and then it was announced that had been licensed by Discotek. Very good news, especially considering how the announcement came quickly enough that we didn’t actually waste any time or resources on the project.

So here’s our latest joint project with Luurah Productions: Laserion. I saw this first episode at a small comic book con in 1984. There was a guy who ran the local anime club showing VHS tapes in raw Japanese that he’d just gotten from his video trading pen-pal in Japan. I was a teenager at the time, and the main premise of Laserion is such a teenage fantasy. Computer nerd who designs giant robots and also has a girlfriend who is totally into his hobby, and through some comic book sci-fi type accident the giant robot materializes in real life and he gets to pilot it to fight evil?! Hot damn!

Get it from Nyaa, or Mega.

Big thanks to Kiseki 83 for the translation! And for more robot action, don’t forget to check out the Luurah Productions site here. Have a safe and happy new year!

    Thank you! This is one of my favorite shows from the 80’s. I actually got to see it when it first aired since I was trading VHS tapes with a Japanese friend at the time. I’m really excited that you have chosen to work on this show. Thanks for all you do!

      That is correct, I will probably be doing a joint project with GUIS this year. I’ve been a fan of their subtitles for many years (especially Jetman!) and it’s an honor to finally be working on a project with them.
