Invincible Steel Man Daitarn 3 01-05 batch torrent

January 27, 2009

Here it is, the first batch torrent. Contains episodes 1 through 5.

If you can, I would really appreciate if you could help with the seeding process, since I don’t have infinite bandwidth available, and I need to turn off the computer at certain times (i.e.: when sleeping), so I won’t be able to seed 24/7.
If you want to help with the seeding process, here’s how:

1. Download all episodes that have been released so far.

Episode listing, for your convenience:
2v2: (please make sure you have the correct file, since at first I had uploaded a wrong version — episode 3 with episode 2’s subs).

2. Create a directory anywhere on your hard drive, named “[ManlySubs] Muteki Koujin Daitarn 3 01-05” exactly (without quotes).
3. Place the episode files inside the directory you created.
4. Open the torrent in your favourite torrenting program.
5. When asked where to download the files, select the directory containing the directory you have created.
6. ????
7. Profit!

Thank you, and happy downloading / seeding.


Invincible Steel Man Daitarn 3 episode 05 released

January 26, 2009

Despite the need to study, I managed to sub an episode in eight days. Go me.

A Child in Need
.mkv: (h264/AAC, 244 MB)

Next episode coming when it’s done (I am still officially on hiatus).


January 18, 2009

Since I have exams coming up, I regret to inform you all that I’m going on hiatus from the fansubbing effort.

This does not mean that subs will stop completely, it means they’ll be coming out much more slowly than they have until now.

Projected time for the end of the hiatus: late February.

Borrowing the Power of the Sun

.mkv: (h264 / AAC, 244 MB)


Invincible Steel Man Daitarn 3 episodes 1v4 and 2v2

January 18, 2009

1v4 .mkv:
2v2 .mkv:

No .ass files since the translation is exactly the same as 1v3 and 2: these files are simply re-encodes to lower the filesize (from 385 MB to 244 MB). If you don’t care about having bloated files taking up space in your HD, you can skip these releases. These files, however, will be the ones which will be re-released later on in torrent format.

Standby for episode 4.

[edited to add] HAHAHA OH WOW, I failed. The episode 2v2 I posted is actually episode 3 with episode 2’s subs.
Until I’ve fixed it, don’t download. This is why you should always check things before uploading, by the way.
[return of edited to add] Ok, re-muxed and re-uploaded, should be fine now. Let me know via comments and / or e-mail if anything is wrong. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Invincible Steel Man Daitarn 3 episode 03 released

The Traitorous Collector
Featuring a traitorous collector (duh), a flying pirate ship and tentacle rape.

.mkv: (h264 / AAC, 244 MB)

Next episode should be coming next week.

File size decrease

January 10, 2009

Good news, everyone! I have finally figured out how to properly encode video files. (Is it so obvious that this is the first time I’m subbing a series?)
Therefore, all coming .mkv releases should be in the 200-250 MB range, as opposed to the first two releases, which were in the 350-400 MB range.
As soon as I have a bit of time I shall re-encode the first two episodes too.

Invincible Steel Man Daitarn 3 episode 02 released

January 9, 2009

Commander Neros’ Challenge
In which breasts are fondled, a city lifts off, there is quite a lenghty battle, and one of Daitarn weapons has no sexual overtones at all, honest.


Episode 3 should be coming some time next week.
In other news, the Italian dub starts to show its limits: I had to partially re-write the dialogue for two scenes, altering the meaning given in the dub, in order for them to make sense. The scenes in question are the confrontation between Banjo and Neros, and the scene in which Neros addresses Banjo through the PA system.

Episode 2 almost done, release schedule planning

January 9, 2009

Almost done with episode 2. Expect it later today.
Meanwhile, I think I’ll clarify my release schedule. I’m currently planning to release one episode per week (more if I have the time) until I’m done, but I’ll have to take a break from the project once in a while to work on RL-related stuff (e.g.: I have exams from late January to mid-February, and I have to study for those). Hiatuses will be announced on this blog.
