Masked Rider ZX Special v2.7 (UPDATED)

Not actually in the script. If I dont mention it now then someone will bring it up, I just know it.

Hey. Sorry this is overdue by... TWO YEARS? Wow. Well fuck me, sorry.  I was basically waiting on jeeg to look this over but as you know, he just kept getting busier and busier and busier so it never happened and I took that as an excuse to get lazy.

Why now though? Well a combination of waiting on some files to keep working on the Kuuga BDs, something big happening with jeeg irl that'll take him off the table for a while, but the biggest thing is having recently found out about the Delta Subs release that came out in the meantime and being informed by our friends at LoveXCare that they were in fact guess subs based on HKs, well that emboldened me to release an actual version with non poop video and get it out there. (hurray run on sentences!)

If you haven't noticed yet from our Kuuga v3 filenames, it is now our strict policy that all Rider series released before Kamen Rider W will now have have the word 'Kamen' translated.. This is not up for debate, we will not hear any arguments over this.  BUT, given stuff like the KITsubs release and Generation Kikaida V3 DVDs, we've put in a 2nd sub stream in the .mkv you can toggle to have all the Henshins, Kamens and japanese name orders you want.  Don't expect this for everything though.

A kind soul uploaded them to ADC and our beloved spiritual sister, Bunnyhat, is making raws with them and directly uploading to our ftp as she goes! She is truly going above and beyond, going as far as to actively use the BD footage to reconstruct certain special features.

With the current lull in working on DVD Batch 3  (my friend in Kobe who was translating the signs quit on me so I'm asking weeaboo shogun to help out but we'll have to wait for him to get free time), I am working on applying our subs on the blu ray raws.

So some important things to note:
-We won't be doing a torrent *just* yet, but I will be making a new MEGA folder as I upload them.

-We have decided to retire the DDLs for the DVD releases and will be slowly phasing then out (ie. When the MKV and MP4 of episode 1 BD goes up, I will take down ep 1 DVD, and so on)

-We have FINALLY recruited a typesetter. So the Blu Ray releases will actually have competent typesetting :V

-Regarding the ep 1&2 "movie": We just got this timed. Don't expect it until after DVD batch 3 is out and work on DVD Batch 4 begins.
EDIT: Our original translator, Zetta, has agreed to very briefly come out of retirement to tl this once he finishes an important move in the coming months!

-Regarding the special features:
I can promise without hesitation that we will be doing the Battle Selections as well as as many promos as possible and the creditless OP/ED videos.
We will, sadly, most likely not be doing the interviews or the data files as I don't think any of the tls I know would have the patience to do them. Not for free anyway.
