Happy Halloween with GeGeGe no Kitaro & Dororon Enma-kun

GeGeGe no Kitaro – episodes 01-22

Because I watch every episode many times to check for typos and such before releasing it, batch releases can be a real challenge in terms of the time commitment involved. But I somehow managed to get this batch completed in time for Halloween, plus it also includes a newly subtitled two-part episode where the Earth is overrun by Tanuki.

While my attempts to subtitle the 1968 series date back to the late 1990s (back when there were only a handful of selected episodes available in Japan on pre-recorded VHS tapes), I actually didn’t get around to releasing any episodes until 2008. In 2011, I was contacted by fellow subtitlers Hokuto no Gun, who ended up partnering with us on this and several other joint projects for the past decade. Now the earlier episodes that I subtitled on my own have had a more through translation check by the HnG team. Here’s to ten years of Hokuto and Nanto joining forces, and working together to make these classic shows finally available with English subtitles!

Get 1-22 from Nyaa or Mega.

Dororon Enma-kun (1973) – episode 06

And here’s another episode of Go Nagai’s Yokai series, Dororon Enma-kun. Remember, if that late-night taxi-driver seems too polite, they just might be a Yokai…

Get it from Nyaa or Mega.

    Thank you for your hard work!
    Are you planning to translate the rest of the 1968 Kitarou as well?
