Igano Kabamaru – 13

Hello, all you Igano fans. This week, Kabamaru has been reading The Divine Comedy and has been inspired to follow in the footsteps of its hero and descend into the lower regions of Hell. Everything was going swimmingly in this monochrome world (aside from a little altercation with the ferryman, but that’s another story) until the final boss fight music started and down floated the glowing-red disembodied head of his grandfather. Turns out that Saizou won a talent competition to be Satan, so he’s gonna kick Kabamaru’s undead ass from here to Hades. Will Kabamaru win his freedom back to the world of the living? Will we ever find out if there’s a tenth circle of Hell? And how exactly does Saizou hold the Devil’s pitchfork without any hands anyway? All these questions and less are answered in Episode 13 of Igano Kabamaru.

Igano Kabamaru – 12 & Batch

In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire… The A-Team.

Apparently, Igano has a career change in this episode and starts life as a soldier of fortune minor celebrity/wannabe King Kong. How rare.

Igano and Shizune decide to join the WWE this week and lay waste to all opposition, until Wrestlemania rolls around yet again and the main event sees the two facing each other in a submission faceoff. Shizune gets in a few early clothes lines but after a game-changing suplex by Igano, he unleashes his fearsome arm-lock. This looks like the end of the line for Shizune’s wrestling career… or does it? Watch a completely unrelated eleventh episode of Igano Kabamaru now to (not) find out.

Desperately Seeking Raws for Sasuke

Hi, merry followers of Saizen! Here in Saizen, we’re always looking out for potential projects to fill the void when our current ongoing series have ended. At the moment, with Igano, Ashita no Joe, Captain Tsubasa and Yawara all being pretty much midway through, there’s no rush for us to pick up any more series – and in fact, it’d probably put too much strain on the group to produce any more series. But one series has caught our eye that we would potentially like to produce subs for in the near future (Read: when any of those series ends). I present Sasuke: a popular series made in the late 60s about a young ninja who’s on the run because he and his father have been charged with war crimes. The penalty: death.


This series was a precursor to a lot of ninja series you see nowadays and there’s no doubt that shows like Naruto owe a lot to Sasuke. The only issue we’re having is this 29-episode title is out of print. No DVDs are currently on sale except for ridiculously high secondhand prices on amazon.jp. So we thought we’d give this a try – if there’s anyone out there who already has the DVDs, we are requesting the ISO’s so that we can produce a good sub of it for all the wonderful people who download our junk. There was an Italian version released at some point, as far as we can tell, so that might make the raws easier to come by, but unfortunately without the raws, Saizen’s hope of subbing this series will remain a pipedream.

This has been a public service announcement by Saizen. We thank you for your attention.

P.S. You can find a trailer for the series here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9h7fmy20D0 (it might spark a few memories!)
