So, turns out that Sentai Filmworks isn’t releasing Hurricane Polymar on DVD after all, but on the other hand the crowdfunding site Anime Sols has acquired the rights to the series. If they meet their goal of $29, 000 within six months, there will be an official DVD release. Also, the entire series will be eventually available for streaming. If you’re a fan of the series and live in the US or Canada, you might want to visit their site and give them some support so it can succeed where their previous attempts like Tekkaman and Yatterman failed.
So what does this mean for the fansubbing project? Seeing as Anime Sols is most likely going to subtitle the entire series, I don’t really feel it’s necessary for me to continue working on it. In case they end up dropping the series for whatever reason I can always pick up from where they leave off but for now I’d rather focus on something else than trying to compete with them. You can probably expect Anime Sols to come up with better subtitles anyway seeing how they well handled their previous Tatsunoko material. I’m still planning to do a batch torrent for every episode I’ve done up until now with fixed scripts and better video but that might be the last update for this series. Expect a new project announcement sometime soon, what that is… I’m not entirely sure yet.
