Does Bandai channel have CC site-wide?

cus they have Mushiking.

> Bandai channel

Is this an irl television channel in japan, or a streaming service?

Such a shame, as someone did rip the tv broadcasts.
no CC

> or from certain Japanese streaming services

Mushiking is on amazon-jp's instant video [and yahoo's Gyao] have it available for rent.
We are currently holding a pool to try and afford the price, because they advertise as being in "HD".
Do either of these 2 pages mention having CC on the videos for rent?

Now we have 2 reasons to covet these.

> I know of this site

That's a really handy site to know about, thank you.
And having the CC to the movies is a huge help if we ever decide to cover them. Double thank you.

> By the way, what is the movie?

There are 2 movies.
No shared staff with the series.

I love Mushiking because of it's directing, it's aesthetic, it's character designs, it's music, and writing etc.
i.e. 100% the people who made it and how they made it. So removing the key staff kills the anime franchise.

The Road to the Greatest Champion (2005)

Altered Beetles of Darkness (2007)

Greatest Champion is a movie about the arcade/video/card-game of Mushiking. Sorta like yugioh etc.
Completely unrelated to the show.
But I'm very interested in watching it.

Altered Beetles is technically "mushiking 2", but it's not a continuation of the story.
It's a filler movie. Or a tech-demo.
It's in full 3D.
And looks absolutely fucking awful.

However it is actually how I came to discover Mushiking.
I'd just finished and loved Ninja Batman.
And wanted to look for more. I followed the director's tiny pool of credits
And saw Altered Beetles. Tried it, thought it was shit, but then went to see the parent show to see what that was about.
I watched ep 1 and it was instantly obvious that this was literally just Casshern Sins. So I loved it.
I then checked the credits, and it's literally the proto-Casshern Sins. All the shared staff.

So Altered Beetles is definitely not something you'd be interested in, but it is because of it that I came to be doing this fansub so I owe it that.

> CC

I haven't thought of that, so haven't looked. Where would such things be? They weren't on the DVD.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. Sounds like fun. I can't wait till I get to experience it.

Yea, the CG sucks ass. It's a real shame. What's a bigger shame is how expensive CG was in 2005, it definitely made the show significantly more expensive to produce than if they'd gone with 2d fights. I recentally heard that for that reason Spirits Within was one of if not the most expensive anime movies ever [not Akira as I'd thought before].

Moribito is in a similar state to Mushiking. Utterly incredible show, one of my top favourites, might've been a 10 or a 9. But the crap cgi is just, ouch. There isn't much of it for most of the show but you get plenty of an eye-full leading up to and in the finale that really turned me off.

If you'd be ever interested in helping us out with the subs of Mushiking, I'd never say no.

Cool. Thank you. Keep doing as you do.
mutsuto Dec 12, 2018 4:42 AM
Let me know if you come across any errors that need fixing in the video files themselves [from my encoding].

Or just errors in the source themselves. I'm keeping a tally.

Just passively looking, not active.
mutsuto Dec 11, 2018 7:17 PM
How many eps have you seen now?
mutsuto Dec 11, 2018 3:25 PM
