Random Astro Boy Question April 2, 2012Posted by sgtkira in Uncategorized.
This is going to be very off topic for the blog, but I want to ask a question to any Astro Boy fans out there.
I am trying to get into the different series, and I want to watch the 1980’s version. I found a torrent that, for some reason, uses the US DVDs, but has Japanese audio and English subs on them. I heard that in the US they were dub only. Were they released with English subs someone else in the world? (UK or somethng) Basically, I’m wondering if these subs are HK-like and deserve a check, or they can be bought by someone, or if they’re an actual fansub.
Also, are there any RAWs of the original series on the internet in Japanese? Do any of you guys own the original DVDs (or the ones for the 1980 series) in Japanese? Things like this would help a lot as well. It seems like the only subs I have found for the first 2 Japanese eps of the original are hardsubbed (1980’s version).
I do know that the newer US sets for the first series have a few Japanese eps with English subs on them, but I am wondering about the series as a whole.
Thank you guys, and I think I know where we’re going to upload next. Not gonna say any names, because that site can easily go under too D: So we’re gonna wait it out for a bit and then proceed to upload the fuck out of our stuff.
