Polymar licensed?

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.

  1. It’s cool. Thank you for all the work you’ve put into subtitling Polymar. Hopefully Anime Sols gets funded and I can have the show on DVD but it’s a long shot. Again thanks and I’m looking forward your next project whatever that may be.

  2. If you’re not sure what to do next, here are some suggestions:

    Cutey Honey Flash
    Kamen no Ninja Akakage
    Brave Exkaiser
    Brave Express Might Gaine
    Brave Command Dagwon
    Super Robot Galatt (although Nanto did express the desire to sub a couple of eps someday)

    With that said, I sincerely wish you luck on your next endeavor.

  3. That’s a real shame mate, all of us outside US will never see the full series subbed, short of some poor quality webrips. Thanks for the great work you’ve done on this, I’d love to see Sei Juushi Bismarck finally subbed.

    • If it funds, the DVDs will be put up for sale on Right Stuf, so you can order them from overseas there – or get a friend in North American to put in a pledge on your behalf, as multiple pledges per person are allowed.

  4. thanks for hard work , could you take on of this anime on project = Manga Sekai Mukashi Banashi
    1976 まんが世界昔ばなし

  5. Hi UQ, I Suggestion to Translation Daikuu Maryuu Gaiking year : (1976) or Andes Shounen Pepero no Bouken Thanks Again year : (1975)

  6. How about the Metal Heroes series “Space Sheriff Gavan?”

    I know it’s live action, and not anime, but it’s a kickass show. Only 5 eps of it were subbed by Midnight Crew and then they stopped.

  7. What next? We would like to see something old. Mikroid s, for example, or even earlier Rainbow Sentai Robin. Thanks for a great job

  8. Wonderful blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Thanks a lot!
