We’ve reached double digits already! Episode 10 gives some more insight on Takeshi’s past, although you’ll have to wait until the later half of the series for Polymar’s full origin story.
This one got slightly delayed due to some hardware issues on Luurah’s end… Blame the evil subninjas as usual.
So… As you may have heard, Sentai Filmworks recently licensed a whole bunch of Tatsunoko shows, a whopping 11 total. So far Gatchaman and Casshan have been announced, but the others remain a mystery. Is Hurricane Polymar among the shows they obtained? As of now there’s no way to be sure, so despite the news I’ll continue this project at least for the time being. It might take a long time before any official announcement is made so it’s probably best to just keep on going for now. Keep in mind that if or when Hurricane Polymar gets licensed, this fansubbing project will be cancelled and all download links will be removed. If any of you happen to notice any new information regarding this licensing issue please let me know ASAP.
Funnily enough, I originally decided to pick up this series because I thought the chances of it getting an English release were astronomically low, but now with the original Casshan licensed it doesn’t seem so unlikely anymore. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
