Masked Rider Agito Special: A New Transformation


Masked Rider Agito Special: A New Transformation

That's a lot of bling on that title screen isn't it? Why you ask? Because this special is aggressively terrible, (to the point that it was responsible for a large part of the delay that preceded the recent sprint to the finish line), and serves little purpose except getting the general public up to speed to see Project G4. Silly typesetting crap like that, including title that is already translated to English right there (which is why it's never subbed in the episodes) was a defense mechanism; a way to keep sane.

This episode is stupid. We do not recommend watching it. It contradicts the series in a large way, but not in a way that makes the story held within any better, and it introduces a new character that should be more important than he winds up. A character with a tedious speech tic to boot.

It's done though, so you can watch it if you're so inclined.

The original plan, by the way, was that Project G4 would just be a mux against the old Tokuraws encode, but there are some issues with that so we obtained the BD and have a 1080p, 720p, and 480p encode on the way. The big two are done already even, though distribution will be a nuisance (the 1080p is 7.3gb).

Thanks to the kindness of strangers (to you people, we know who), discs 1-3 DVD9 are available, so episodes 1-12 will be getting fresh encodes from better source (11-12 having already at least been done 480p h.264, but from a bad source).

You didn't think we'd die off just because we finally finished the series proper, did you?

  1. Will you be doing the Director's Cut of Project G4?

    1. No, the BD is only theatrical, as was the CAP base.
