/m/, my father once gave me some advice.
If you ever see a raccoon with a banana, poke him with a stick.
If you ever see a raccoon on your roof, poke him with a stick.
If you ever see a raccoon with a gun, poke yourself with a stick, because you ignored the first two rules and now the raccoon revolution has begun.
Surprise Recovery 2! - ASTRO BOY 2003 HK SUBS

So a week ago, I posted rips for the HKs of Kamen Rider X... Now I have another item to release to you.
This is the 2003 Astro Boy TV series, officially subbed for eps 1-24, and with HK subs for the remainder of the show.
Some time ago, an anon ripped and released the DVD raws for the show and put them here, along with subs for the first 24 episodes. I have ripped the remainder of the HK subs and timed them to his raws, allowing English viewers to watch the series for the first time in its original widescreen format, unedited.
The HK subs do mess up names from time to time, and their writing and grammar can get awkward, but they are generally understandable and one can follow the whole story with them. This will be a good holdover until someone properly fansubs the rest of this wonderful series. If you downloaded the first torrent, these are the same raws, save 44 which was a v2 release.
The English version of the show changed quite a bit, including episode order, the entire soundtrack, and most dialogue. It was not horrible, but it sadly did not retain the epic feel much of the original version had.
For those who have the raws already, SUB FILES ONLY:
And for those who need the whole batch, here's the torrent:

I'm trying to collect a definitive list of total fansub progress of mecha anime TV series going all the way back to Tetsujin in 1963, namely to give the community a better idea of not only what shows are available, but what shows are still in need of future projects. This is the first revision of the list, and it only covers shows up to 2000, so it is rather crude...
I would like to eventually get this on a wiki somewhere that could be updated so we can have the community keep track of what shows need work, and who's completed what series.
So far, this is what I have. Episode titles and fansub groups will be added later. Note that this covers TV SERIES ONLY and not OVAs or Movies, mostly because OVAs are actually fairly well covered in the fansub world. I can make separate lists for those later once I get this one ironed out.
Year, fansub groups, and episode count for each show will come later.

So, aside from the goofy antics that are BB Senshi Sangokuden, has any giant robot show ever attempted to appeal to the military history nerd that must exist in their audience? I'm a sucker for things like Hannibal's Roman campaign, the Sangoku and Sengoku periods, and all that, and it seems like, given I bet at least two of these three things have been turned into gender-flipped hentai games, it would be just as easy to do them IN GIANT ROBOTS... or just make an /m/ series with that level of scheming, strategy, and over-the-top killing of hundreds and hundreds of dudes.
Do they exist though? The closest thing I can think of in terms of '/m/ designed for military history nerds' is stuff like VOTOMs and LoGH.
