This is a different label. Shout Factory is streaming several Kamen Rider series on TokuSHOUTsu across a bunch of different platforms, but Kamen Rider Black is coming from Discotek/Toku Time.

Toei doesnít do the blanket license thing that Tsuburaya did with Mill Creek and Ultraman. They license shows one by one, and they donít necessarily bundle physical and digital rights.

I think there are four labels in the US right now with Kamen Rider DVDs or BDs in-print or on the way.

Oh, I didn't even realize that Black was coming from Discotek. Yeah now I'm confused.

So we have:
Shout releasing Zero-1, Kuuga, and having subtitled the original Kamen Rider and Ryuki and some movies
Discotek having the original Kamen Rider Black
Media Blasters having the five movies: Shin, Zo, J, the First and the Next (though this was delayed)
Generation Kikaida having released V3 on DVD way back (along with Kikaida, Kikaida 01 and Inazuman) and still selling it

Crunchyroll airing Fuuto Pi, the anime sequel to OOOs
Amazon having aired Amazons and soon Kamen Rider Black Sun

Anything missing?

TokuHD has 555 and Agito, and Toei is streaming the first two episodes of nearly everything (and occasionally adding movies/specials, usually for brief windows) on their YouTube channel, but otherwise, that's everything I'm aware of.

Re: Kamen Rider coming to Blu-ray in the U.S.

Ah, right, I must have been thinking about TokuHD when I said Agito. I've heard those TokuHD subs are terrible though.

It's kind of amazing to me the breadth of series that Toei translated in its youtube channel (though I wish there was more depth). But untranslated they have like thousands of episodes up there.

Also...!

Discotek confirmed in a Q&A after the stream that the Kamen Rider Black set will include the two TV specials, but not the two theatrical releases -- Hurry to Onigashima and Terrifying! The Phantom House of Devil Pass -- since those require separate licensing.

Re: Kamen Rider coming to Blu-ray in the U.S.

I don't get why Toei doesn't just do some kind of master license, particularly if the Saban rights are expired. That's one thing Tsubaraya has over them, once they got that rights mess figured out (I think) they have basically new subbed episodes of Ultraman every week.

Money and control, I'd imagine.

Re: Kamen Rider coming to Blu-ray in the U.S.

Discotek/Toku Time's Blu-ray release of Kamen Rider Black showed up on my doorstep today, so I grabbed a few random screenshots for anyone who's interested. I'm hiding some of these behind spoilers so it's not super-overwhelming.


Spoiler:








Spoiler:








Here's a full list of extras. One that Discotek hadn't announced is a Kamen Rider Black RX teaser, and we might get that announcement on Monday night as part of Discotek Day!

Disc 1
No extras

Disc 2
  • This Is Kamen Rider Black - behind the scenes promo special (25 min.)
  • Cast and Crew Reunion Special - Part 1 (41 min.)

Disc 3
  • Original TV promos (2 min.)
  • Cast and Crew Reunion Special - Part 2 (42 min.)

Disc 4
  • Recap special (60 min.; when playing, it says "Toei TV Hero Encyclopedia")
  • Cast and Crew Reunion Special - Part 3 (44 min.)

Disc 5
  • Long Long Ago 20th Century: The Birth of Kamen Rider Black (historical essay by Mike Dent)
  • Photo Gallery (16 pages of photos)
  • US Blu-ray trailer (1 min.)
  • Kamen Rider Black RX teaser (1 min.)
  • Original Transformation and Attack Sequences (1 min.; these have the original strobe effects in place, which have been removed from the HD masters of the episodes themselves)

51 episodes. 5 discs. 1080p24, as you'd hope for. Some of the extras are 1080i60 or standard def. Uncompressed Japanese audio. Optional English subs.

Re: Kamen Rider coming to Blu-ray in the U.S.

I can't even... I want it so badly but I wouldn't get around to it for years (didn't stop me from getting the Ultraman steelbooks... I guess I'm grateful these aren't steelbooks)

Re: Kamen Rider coming to Blu-ray in the U.S.

At least we have a little bit of a window before Black RX! Discotek has announced their slate through April, so it shouldnít be coming any sooner than May (unless itís a May release shipping in April).

Iím working my way through 2 Ultraman DVD sets, have a backlog of Ultraman BDs (and will probably buy more when they go on sale again at DeepDiscount), am watching Kuuga with my wife, have Kamen Rider Black waiting for me, and will probably buy Ryuki sooner rather than later.

I did the math, and if I watched all the Ultraman stuff on DVD and BD that I donít currently own ó and that doesnít include my backlog or series since the current Mill Creek deal! ó itíd still take me 4.5 months to watch even if I treated it like a full time, 40 hour a week job. Plus I want to watch more Kamen Rider and get more into Super Sentai! Itís a sickness.

Re: Kamen Rider coming to Blu-ray in the U.S.

No word yet on an American theatrical release, let alone Blu-ray, but I figured I'd post this here anyway.

Re: Kamen Rider coming to Blu-ray in the U.S.

On a related note, it seems that the guy in charge of Media Blasters doesn't even know what lossless audio is. Le sigh.

Re: Kamen Rider coming to Blu-ray in the U.S.

AFAIK, all of my Media Blasters discs either have uncompressed or lossless audio.

Re: Kamen Rider coming to Blu-ray in the U.S.



Media Blasters is trying to tie their Heisei-era Kamen Rider release(s?) to AnimeNJ, so expect a release roughly around mid-December (maybe a bit before). Could be a special screening and perhaps a con exclusive edition.

This seems like a one night engagement but who knows since it's not officially put up yet.

I know this isn't the merch thread but it's so rare and such a focused audience, forgive the aside. Uniqlo just put out a "Shin Japan Heroes" collection celebrating Hideaki Anno which has a Shin Godzilla, a Shin Ultraman, and two Shin Kamen Rider shirts which I thought was pretty cool:

Yeah, similar to what Fathom did for Shin Ultraman. That one was two nights; one subbed, the other dubbed. This is apparently just subbed.
