Okay, here’s the complete batch encoded from dougo13’s third series GeGeGe no Kitaro subtitled VHS tapes, that were recorded in the early 1990s from the Nippon Golden Network pay-cable channel in Hawaii. Some of these are episodes we’ve released in the last two batches, but I’ve added episode titles to the file names to make them easier to identify. There are also 25 new episodes, including episode 108 (the final episode of the main series), as well as four episodes of the seven part “Jigoku Hen” (Hell Chapter) mini-series which started two days after the main series conclusion.

Get them from Nyaa or Mega. Also, dougo13 mentioned that people are re-posting these episodes to Usenet, which is much appreciated by both of us because it’s sharing the episodes with an even larger audience.

Of course massive thanks are due to dougo13, for originally making the arrangements to get all these recorded by a trading buddy in Hawaii, and for sharing all these recordings with the world. Also a shout-out to our mutual friend Laurine, who provided the first 5 episodes in a VHS trade we did years ago. Will more episodes turn up in a box of tapes eventually? Will series 3 ever get a proper fansubbed version? One never knows about such things, we’ll just have to wait and see.

For anyone who isn’t familiar with NGN subtitles, they certainly are more rudimentary than a fansub or professional release, but they provide enough information to understand the plots of the episodes, and aren’t (usually) riddled with hideous spelling and grammar mistakes like a Hong Kong DVD.

A few of the episodes are missing the first few minutes, because remembering to set the timer and have the correct VHS tape loaded into your VCR was a lot harder than today’s DVRs that grab all your favorite shows with very little effort. Most of the episodes are complete, but the few that aren’t have the approximate time missed noted in the file names.

Here’s the complete list of episodes in this batch. May all of you out there have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and best wishes for the holiday season regardless of creed or nation.

    Nanto, is your contact going to get the rest of the VHS rips for this series?

      Unlikely, but you never know. I wouldn’t be surprised if a small number of additional episodes turned up while he was digging through old tape boxes, and we might be able to find a few others recorded by other people. But I don’t see much chance of putting together a complete or even nearly-complete set of the NGN subtitled Kitaro series 3.

      Still, pretty amazing dougo13 was able to get his friend in Hawaii to record such a vast number of these, and very nice of him to share them with the rest of us.

    Man, you are indefatigable, Nanto. I’m not even a great fan of 3GKItaro, but I couldn’t pass up a find like this. Seeing old VHS captures is a nostalgic treat in and of itself, regardless of the series. Big kudos to you and dougo13 for your efforts, and much thanks with wishes for your good new year.

    Still making my way through these! I wanted to make note that episode 62 features the Red Peony Gambler theme, sung by its star Junko Fuji. At the end of the sequence, we even get a Gegege version of Fuji herself! That’s the real theme too, not just an approximation. The benefits of being under the Toei umbrella, I guess! You can hear the theme here (timestamped to start at 6m33s when the theme begins) https://youtu.be/CUAfQ5B12Es?t=6m33s

    Go to thinking that someone could replace the crappy audio with broadcast audio if they were so inclined. Kitaro was another series that Toei tossed the audio masters out when they finished transmitting the episodes. But I’d have to know which episodes to try to find if anyone wanted to do this…

    Just an update to this…I’m trying to save as much Toei stuff as i can, so I will go back and cap what episodes of Kitaro as I can find. I have found some that are in the subtitled pack, so if I had the ISO with the episode from the disc set, I could remove the audio or add the new (old) audio as a second audio selection. I will say, the original broadcast audio sounds MUCH better than the stuff I got from Hawaii or the subtitled episodes I have seen online. It DOES give you that creepy feeling…

      I have all the ISOs for 1980s Kitaro, so any episodes you are able to recover can be patched onto them. There’s someone who had made some subtitled versions using the NGN scripts, and actually did a pretty good job from what I’ve seen, though they were using webrips rather than a DVD source.

      I’m actually considering subtitling some of the 1980s Kitaro myself, but using an actual translator rather than the rudimentary NGN scripts. There are certain episodes I’m particularly interested in, such as ones where we’re missing the NGN version, or missing a substantial portion of them (like the Dai Kaiju two-parter). And I’ve always wanted to subtitle the 7 episode Jigoku mini-series that ran at the end of the 80s show. But any episodes you can recover would be much appreciated.

    Still looking for episodes. Going to do the ones that track perfectly first. Found both parts of The Great Tanuki War so that’s good. Getting to work on those right away…

      That’s a great find, since I think we’re missing part 2 of the NGN version. Now I can subtitle both episodes with a proper translation, and original broadcast sound to boot!

    Looks like I was a bit premature. The tape is mislabeled! I can’t find part 1 at all. Every other show is in the correct order but Kitaro has episodes out of order on numerous tapes, including some of the ones that can’t be tracked. Bummer…
