WHO SUBS WHAT: Kamen Rider

For the sake of public service and for me to stop writing a long post about the groups related to fan subbing, here's the list of all the groups who subs Kamen Rider along with their links. I will also do a list for Super Sentai, Ultraman and if lucky enough, Metal Heroes.

Kamen Rider
NOTES: The group decided to divide the series into two, namely season 1 and season 2. Season one consist of all episodes that is related Shocker which AFAIK last for at least 51 episodes. After this, it is not sure if they will continue with it or let another group finish it.

Kamen Rider V3
GROUP: Generation Kikaida (Licensed)
NOTES: It aired in Hawaii years ago along with Kikaider, Kikaider 01, Inazuman and JAKQ. The box set contains a lot of really nifty special features and according to some reviews, it is worth buying. But for those who don't want to buy the set, you can download the series online with subs. How? Google it.

Kamen Rider X
GROUP: KITSubs (Dropped) | Order of Zeronos

Kamen Rider Agito
GROUP: Cruel Angel | GomenRider | Midnight Crew Subs (Ryuki HBV) | TV-Nihon

  • Will update this post constantly.
  • The term "scrubbing" or "scrub" means cleaning up an existing sub. By cleaning, it includes using a better RAW (perfect example, GomenRider's Agito releases), removing the honorifics, fix some wordings and remove unnecsary Japanese terms that doesn't have much meaning to the series' enjoyment.
