POST UPDATED: Secret Squadron Goranger: Episodes 53 & 54

Hello everyone, updating this post to tell you all that I've uploaded v2s of both episodes to fix a typo on 54, and add the missing line on 53. Much thanks to MilkyDreamer from Imagination Station for helping us figure it out!

If you don't care about that line (which wasn't even that important anyway) or typos, then feel free to not download this. I deleted the previous torrent, though, so you can stop seeding if you're not downloading the new ones. Hardsubs are coming very soon out now, as I found someone to help out during Clock Up's absence. Thank you very much, Angel! :D

Alright, it's been quite some time, right? I'm not going to apologize for taking long to release, IRL shit happens, but I am sorry for the lack of updates. Our fans deserve to at least know we're all alive and well, and that the project isn't dead.

Without further ado, here are the episodes! Hardsubbed versions will be coming soon are out now.

Well, obviously you're not. You're a giant baseball, silly!

First up there is episode 53, the one in which our heroes have to face the mighty Baseball Mask, his team of Zolders, and there's a fun fight involving a shitload of baseball bats. It was pretty fun! Working on this was perhaps the most fun I had with this project so far. Everyone else agrees it is an iconic episode, so enjoy!

Then there's episode 54, in which we say goodbye to a great character. Volcano Mask finally says his goodbyes, after an explosive (volcano, explosions, get it? Huh?) confrontation with the Gorangers. We will miss him dearly, since he was so much fun to hate. And from 55 onwards we will see the exploits of a new evil commander, Golden Mask. Look forward to hating him too!


Notes:

In episode 53, around the 4:18 mark, there's a line by Baseball Mask we couldn't for the life of us translate. I could've made something up, but that didn't seem like a good way to go. Please keep in mind this show is over 40 years old, so sometimes it stumps us. So far, this hadn't happened, but this line was ran through three different translators, and we all got nothing that made sense. If anyone can understand what the hell he's saying, and wants to send in a suggestion, we'd be very happy. Yeah, issue solved! :D

  1. Ah yes, Baseball Mask, probably the most well known of all the Masked Monsters of Gorenger. (blame his awesomeness...and his VA also doing Sha-Fu over 30 years later). Also has the really great villain Dr. Shinigami, which I think makes it all the more worthwhile. As for Magman's departure: I think it was fine he left before he wore his welcome out...but yeah, more changes in store.

    Next time: the final Black Cross General begins his campaign (even though we still have 30 episodes left); and...well, another change in cast. (tough to say how you'll all like the new guy but...here he comes)

    1. Yeah, there's that other change coming... I'm not keen on it right now, but hopefully the new guy will grow on me. Let's see what he brings to the table, right?

    2. Yeah...he takes some getting used to. The good news is he does leave way stronger than he arrives if there is that consolation.

  2. Correct me if I'm wrong but we're getting to around the time the movie is supposed to take place, right?

    1. Yep. The one movie that isn't a theatrical edition of an episode was originally shown between 56 and 57.

  6. Are they reusing names on purpose? Because Golden Mask was the name of the first MOTW that the Rangers faced. When I saw the circumstances of the Black Cross Army bringing him out, I thought for a moment they were reviving the original Golden Mask, like they did Professor Shinigami, but it's someone new. Anyone have an idea?

    1. Most of the old movies are remakes and mashups of episodes made with a nicer budget.

  7. Ok it's not letting me reply, so re:James White- What are you talking about? I did not mention the movies in any way, I'm talking about the very first villain in the very first episode; his name was Golden Mask. And now here in this latest episode they have introduced a new villain who is also named Golden Mask, and I was just curious if the producers were aware they gave two different villains the same name.

    1. I think he probably replied to the wrong comment... That happens. Or maybe he thought you were complementing your previous comment, who knows? Anyway, the producers didn't give both the same name, actually.

      The one in the first episode was Ogon Kamen, this one is Golden Kamen, said in English. Their intention wasn't for the show to be translated to English, so this wasn't expected xD Anyway, most places translate Ogon Kamen as Gold Mask, not Golden, but I'm not sure if the Bad Apple episodes used that. I'll be sure to check that for the batch, as to avoid anyone else getting confused

    2. Howdy! I'm one of Bad Apple's creators! Yeah, we used Gold Mask. GUIP used it, and it was a close enough translation, so we thought "what the hell?"

      Delete
    3. Oh, I see! Well, thanks for clarifying that :D For the record I'd have gone with Gold Mask too, to avoid confusion with the commander we just introduced :D

    4. Yeah, I replied to the wrong comment...it was 4am, not sure why I was online, but so sorry.

      Yeah the two Golden mask names confused me at first too but wordplay is strong with the Japanese.
