Nei-nei Hou-hou! Yang Goes On /m/-ken

MECHA-ANON, HMM...

Gekiranger (Movie Script) | Gekiranger (Movie Raw)

In this theatrical adventure, our team of three are transported (along with our 2 favorite anti-heroes) to the mystical land of Hong Kong, China. Once there, they have to fight in a no-holds-barred martial arts competition. But for the life of me, I can’t imagine why a luchador is there (unless lucha libre is a martial art, which if it is, ignore my ignorance). And later on, we get to see the power that is Mechung Fu, or mecha kung fu, followed by a mecha named Mechanon… see a pattern here?

Translation Terrors – Gekijoban Edition

Starting with this movie, and all releases after, I’ll be italicizing all Janguage, so it’s identifiable and it won’t be weird when some one questions it.

Also, if you see a few lines with a white shadow, that signifies the character is speaking Chinese, not Japanese, but it’s only about 6-7 lines, so it isn’t major.

One major thing that annoyed me though, is that at the end, they go to a restaurant and order all these Chinese dishes I haven’t had (as of yet), and couple that with the fact that I couldn’t understand TV-N’s romanization of these dishes, I must thank Google and Wikipedia for finding those. For those wondering, the dishes were Xiao Long Bao, Kar Gow, and Chongqing.

Jarajara to Ukyaukya! The Pervy Sage is an Elephant-ken

10-11 Scripts | 10 Raw, 11 Raw

And thus we embark upon the Kensei/Kenma arc, where our heroes (and villains) are put through constant training and awkward situations to the point where things start getting surreal. In this first adventure in the arc, the trio are defeated by a monster who can imitate the boulder from Indiana Jones, causing Xia Fu to send them deep into the mountains, where secret ninja academ- *ahem* where he wants them to deliver a package to. On the way, they get schooled by a malicious forest spirit called a Mononoke and they barely hold him off.

Much later, the pervy Kensei, Elehung, trains Ran in the ways of Geki Ju Elephant-ken, but it seems that it’s not for her… but of course that’s just episode drama. And there’s lots of pervy elephant hijinks! And now we begin down the large path of getting more toys- er- GekiBeasts to combat the RinJuDen. I don’t particularly like this arc much (on the hero side anyhow).

Waitin’ for the Kotokoto while Shubashuba dancing with a Kenakena Woman-ken


07-09 Scripts | o7 Raw, 08 Raw, 09 Raw

In this super super release, we have 3 adventures for the Geki team to embark upon. First off, in order to fight against the rhythmtastic Sorisa, Jan and the others get their J-Pop on and learn how to dance-fight, and we’re introduced to Natsume (affectionately nicknamed “Kid of Miki” by Jan). Later, Maga the Toad professes his love for Sorisa (after making a mecha-sized fool of himself earlier) and the two beat the Gekiranger down. Jan learns patience through the power of PORK, and they mow down the lovebirds with their BFG. Lastly, Mele and Braco throw down, with Leo’s life on the line, and Mele proves she is a badass, with the power of LOVE (Sailormoon, eat your heart out).

Translation Notes~ Poison Edition

At the end of episode 7, Sorisa makes a comment about the “ultimate spear and ultimate shield”. It’s a Chinese myth about a con artist who tries to swindle the emperor with the idea of an ultimate spear that can pierce anything, and an ultimate shield that can block anything. These two things contradict each other, but for the context of this episode, you’ll still get the point.

Natsume, during the course of episode 8, makes a reference to another tale, the “Little Black Sambo”, in which tigers turned to butter. I would’ve changed the line, but she says “butter” in English, so that’d be a bit hard.

Juwaan~ Spiderman Ain’t Got Nothing on Retsu-ken


Script 06 | Raw 06

In this episode, our friendly neighborhood jaguar-ken user climbs on walls and fights the Geico gecko’s deranged third cousin. There’s also a strange artsy French-Japanese art dealer, and Mele is not amused. Oh, and Bae still annoys me.

The only true translation woe of this episode was the kind of cute pun with “kando”. I translated it as “emotion”, which is what an artist wishes to invoke in a person with their art. Of course, Jan isn’t exactly sophisticated, so he refers to himself, “Kando Jan”. It’s an obvious pun, but still, just thought I’d put it out there.

Ujauja~ Mati Would Be Proud-ken


Script 05 | Raw 05

In this episode, Jan learns what it means to be anxious and Ran proves how badass she is… with the power of heart! We get introduced to a plotpoint involving more poisonous stuff, and Kademu’s hood is hiding an ugly as sin face. I really despise bugs. But hey, at least it’s gone for good right?…. Right?…. Damn.

General translation choices apply. The only thing I can truly say I might have missed the meaning of is the Sendenmanda thing, which is the 1,000 Fist contest they had in this episode. Anyone who is Japanese-savy, you can leave a comment saying if you agree with my TL choice in this episode if you like. Overall, it’s a good episode.

Error… Some Slightly Bad News

As you guys may have noticed, the place were I usually time/correct my raws (Toku Raw Revolution) has let a few of their series become inactive and they were wiped from the Megaupload servers. In light of this, I don’t have a raw to work with, and I don’t have a raw to release with either. So we’re in a pickle in terms of Faiz for awhile. Sorry guys. I guess I’ll work on Geki in the meantime, so there’s that.

5-5-5, Standing By… v2!

Compliments of zodaex of HJU. You never cease to amaze me man.

Zodaex-
All new Version 2 hardsubs! The main reason for the V2s is that I forgot to keep the resolution of the AVI versions divisible by 16 for optimal compression efficiency. (just a disadvantage of Xvid) While I was at it I went ahead and redid the MKVs as well for I found a way to ever so slightly improve those, but the V2s are primarily for the AVI versions. ep 14 is now up as well.
