Masked Rider Black-RX (1988) Malaysian-English Dubbed; Various Episodes

TADA-ima~

We jump back on the Masked Rider train with a dub from an uncommon place – Malaysia!

To date, the only time they had anything to do with Rider in English (Malay audiences have seen various dubs from them, including the Den-O movie) was their version of Toshiki Inoue’s Masked Rider The Next was released onto the Internet by our friends at OZC-Live complete with a small cut (does that sound like an oxymoron to you?), but now, we are honoured to release their only-known series dub which saw a VCD release.

And what an interesting choice for it to be Black-RX, too, as a Malay dub of the original Black did air for schoolboys at around 5:30PM around the 90s (known as Ksatria Baja Hitam in TV listings and in the show known as “Suria Perkasa Hitam”). I suppose since it wasn’t as well-received as the original, the rights for it wouldn’t be as expensive – but then why would they take Jetman rather than Fiveman? Who knows – but the mystery for this series doesn’t stop there…

What kind of adventures will Kotaro get into this time? Let’s find out!

Crush Gear Nitro (2003) Singapore-English Dubbed; Episodes 01 – 03

TADA-ima~

The sequel to Crush Gear Turbo with a revamped storyline, new characters and merchandise to buy (yeah, they’ve been doing this business model for years, much to no one’s surprise), today we have the Singapore-English dubbed version of Crush Gear Nitro starring Christian J Lee and Jamie Meldrum (the latter as Ginjiro, according to this source) which aired on Cartoon Network Philippines and MediaCorp Kids Central (in Singapore) and later released to VCD by Poh Kim there. At least 12 dubbed episodes are known to exist.

I personally liked Crush Gear Turbo (I watched the Hong Kong-English dub of that which was actually quite good), it was a simple and straightforward “stubborn 10 year old kid lost his father, he gathers up friends and makes his way to the top” kind of show much like Pokemon and later Inazuma Eleven – but the battles in this anime are fought with these motorised vehicles called Crush Gears who compete to topple the other one over beyond hope. There’s also impact in the right areas: drama between characters (including a rich antagonist) and a LOT of sparks flying everywhere.

But the sequel – well, I don’t have a lot of hope for it, sorry to say. Here is what happens in each episode though!

Episode 1: Let’s Move to the Heartbeat of the Gear!

Meet the new boy in town – Mahha Masaru. He befriends Crush Kid and gets himself a new gear the Garuda Phoenix. Meanwhile, the Sanama Lab has invented a new system called the IOD.

Episode 2: Hide Fights Back!

Mahha Masaru has been appointed to take over as the new Crush Kid but he is reluctant. The Crush Kid has to settle disputes with his gear fighting and Masaru thinks he is not ready for that. Meanwhile, Hide steals a new gear, the Wing Raptor, from the Sanama lab and is found out by Akusawa Yu.

Episode 03: The Awakening! Mach Justice

Akusawa Yu – the genius gear fighter meets Mahha Masaru for a deadly duel. Yu uses his new gear, King Shubarutsu and destroys Garuda Phoenix by using the new IOD. Gingiro coaches Masaru on the most basic and important element of gear fighting and surprises Masaru with a new gear he made for him. Mach Justice becomes Masaru’s new and almost unbeatable new gear.

What adventures will our protagonists face next? Find out soon!

TADA-ima~

Description (taken from Poh Kim VCD):

Many millennia ago, a highly advanced civilization flourished on earth. At the extreme of luxury, the human race decided to venture into space. The audacious project met with hostility from the Astral Allies. With nothing in common, total war broke out between the two sides. The earthly civilization was completely defeated and forever consigned to oblivion, leaving no trace of its existence to its successors.

The present day. A different civilization has been rebuilt on earth and appears to peacefully enjoy its prosperity. Unbeknownst to humankind, however, the Astral Allies are plotting another invasion of the Earth.

Only twelve people possess the keys to save the earth. Belonging to the four water tribes of Fire, Wind, Earth and Water, they have the power to  mobilize the Gransazers, ultimate battle suits developed by the ancient civilization that were never actually used. Gradually, they are awakened to their sacred mission and decide to join forces to order to save us from annihilation again!

Now the only missing episode is the very first one. Maybe someone can step forward and share it so that we can get the entire series 🙂
