Hi, I go by the internet handle of Nanto, although no one calls me that in real life. I like to subtitle Japanese anime and live-action, particularly shows from the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

I’ve also been collecting rare video in a variety of genres since 1982.

    Hi. Do you have more episodes from Rainbow Sentai Robin? I am from Brazil, and the only tv Chanel that worked with them took fire years ago.

    I have the original Gatchaman Fighter DVDs from Japan, and would be happy to get you uncompressed copies if you’d consider subtitling the series.

    Thank you very much. I have a childhood dream, and it’s to watch the full Lensman series. Make a child dream a reality. And again Thank you, if not you no one will.

    Could you sub the 1989 Akuma-kun anime, Magical Taruruuto-kun, or any of the Bikkuriman series?

      Holy crap, it’s our beloved co-founder, from back when TSHS was a local club!

    Hey man! I’ve just stumbled on your blog, because I was looking for Azteckaiser episodes. It seems that you’ve dropped translating the series, which is a bit of a shame.
    I wanted to ask, if you are willing to continue? I can volunteer as a timer on the series just to get them finished. Though, I don’t know nothing about it, but I am willing to learn πŸ™‚ I am tech savvy and work as a Tier 2 rep in a software company, so I expect myself to pick it up at some point.

    Also, can I post your translated episodes on Xtreme Wrestling Tracker? I am pretty sure there will be a lot of people interested in this. I will remain file names unchanged and mention that all credit goes to you.

    Thanks in advance, Nanto!


  10. Thank you so much for subbing Sukeban Deka! I loved the first series and love the second season even more. I’m 30 episodes in and and curious as to when the final two episodes will be released? It’s been a favorite to watch during my livestreams and our group loves it. Keep up the good work!

    Any chance you could sub the Japanese Spiderman series, or Orochi on Gyakyushu (The kaiju fan movie made by the future memebers of Gainax back in the early eighties)? Anyway, love the work you do.

    Hey, was wondering if you could post the soft subs (if you still have them) for Choujin Locke: Lord Leon. Wanted to re-time them to some 720p raws I found. Will give credit. Thanks.


    • Nanto says:

      I’m planning on doing a revised release of all the Locke OAVs this year. The problem with the 720p raws is that they crop the top and bottom of the picture, to fit a 4:3 image into today’s 16:9 screens. It’s similar to how in the days before DVDs, most movies had the sides chopped off to fit 4:3 screens.

    Hello good day. Where do I find Choujin Locke: Mirror Ring’s RAW? Could you provide me without subtitles?

    Hi, this may be a stretch but i thought you might know since you posted a few episodes of Yonimo Kimyona Monogatari with the Golden Nippon Network subs. I found this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_fxERlsNR0 which shows a few minutes of the 1993 NHK taiga drama Ryukyu no Kaze with English subs, evidently ripped from an old tape. The subtitles look just like the GNN’s (though it says Subtitles Copyright: TV Network Japan, Inc.), and the show is also identified as Dragon Spirit. I wonder if you know something about it, or might know someone who does? I’d love to watch that show since there is so little jidaigeki out there about Okinawa’s history, but I can’t find anything about it.
    Apologies if this somehow posted twice, I tried posting it earlier but I don’t see the post.
