Lensman: Galactic Patrol (1984) – Episode 05


This joint project between /m/subs and TSHS continues. After a somewhat shaky start, we’re now starting to see definite improvements in some of the artwork, particularly in key-frames drawn by Yasuomi Umetsu. The stories are improving as well, and this one is the best so far in my opinion. It’s the anniversary of the founding of Galactic Patrol, and all the planets with Patrol squads are celebrating. Admiral Haynes needs to attend the festivities on Dzoara, a planet that was an important ally during the time when one of the Patrol’s most legendary principles was laid forth. Dzoara is in conflict now, and its leader has explained to Haynes how important it is for him to appear at their anniversary festivities for a show of unity (i.e. he doesn’t want them to “Dzoarexit” from the Patrol). We get some great flashbacks to the early days of Galactic Patrol, including how Gary Kinnison was right alongside Admiral Haynes in the early days, but retired after being injured saving Haynes’ life.

Get it from Nyaa or Mega.

Big thanks to sky79, starseeker, Marty Mcflies, Ametuchi, Shidoni, and Crush-Zombie. And of course an extra special shout-out to Alrow for providing the ultra-rare laserdisc source.

As I’ve mentioned a few times in the comments, I’m just as excited to see every new episode subtitled as the rest of you are. In fact, if you are under 30, I have wanted to see this series subtitled for longer than you have been on this planet.

And sorry I haven’t gotten my act together on the hardsub mp4 requests. I promise they will be forthcoming.
