Stepsisters (1985) – Episode 14

In this episode, Gozo is still reeling from the shock of both Chizuko and Shinobu running away from home. Shinobu’s attempts to find a new job are blocked by Teshima, who sends Daimaru Corporation thugs to scare off potential employers. And of course as usual the episode ends on a crazy-ass cliffhanger that raises the stakes of the story yet again.

It had long been an ambition of mine to subtitle one of those wonderfully over the top 1980s Daiei-TV J-Dramas. Grown Ups In Spandex is a group that specializes in subtitling 1980s Super Sentai series, and Stepsisters features Megumi Mori from Jetman playing the supporting character Taeko. I was a fan of their previous subtitling work (especially Liveman and Jetman), therefore I was thrilled when they reached out to me about subtitling Stepsisters as a joint project. With the release of this episode, we’ve finally reached the halfway point of this 28 episode series. More to come…

    It took a long long time, but, it’s here now! Thanks, Nanto!
    Besides Megumi Mori, Chikyodai also had Kazue Ito as Chizuko, who played Miki Masaki in Gekiranger more than 20 years after.

      You’re welcome, Lee! Thanks for the info about Kazue’s role in Gekiranger. I bailed on the franchise when Kakuranger came along, and know pretty much zero about anything after Dairanger.

    Really appreciate this. I got a little spoiled with how fast these episodes were coming out. I don’t mind the wait though because this show is worth being patient for. I really love more obscure J-Dramas like this that I probably wouldn’t have ever discovered otherwise.

    A plot twist every minute, an incredible episode to mark the middle of the journey. Thanks so much again for this wonderful job, my heroes don’t wear capes, they make subs.

    Thank you so much for translating/providing these episodes! This show is so great! I noticed the most recent translated episode here was released in August. I understand how busy everyone is I’m just wondering if there are still plans to continue the series. Thank you again for your work!

      You are welcome! Yes, we are still working on this series. Real life sometimes gets in the way, but we are slowly moving forward with more episodes in various states of progress.
