I was looking for some videos on Dailymotion one night when I discovered something that I thought might interest Kabuki Katze a great deal. This comment thread on dA was the result. There are video links!
Little did I realize this would lead to four downloadable wallpaper packs of chibi cat characters from P Productions! WOW! It's really outstanding fanart, and desperately makes me want to create my own cat dudes. Well, especially coupled with Jaguar Bond! I can say it had an influence on my following through on something that had been bouncing around my head for at least a year. You'll be seeing THAT soon enough!
While I was still lurking in limbo, I remembered something I had neglected to mention to Kabuki when I first exposed her to these shows. Namely, there exists an ENGLISH DUB of the first episode of KAIKETSU LION MARU. There might even be more, but the one is all that's surfaced. Entitled "Magic of the Ninja", it turned up on an obscure kiddie tape back in the 1980s. I knew of it, but had never managed to score a copy back in my tape trading salad days.
Thanks to the magic of the Internet, "Magic of the Ninja" can now be seen on this very blog. It was in two parts on Youtube, so I made a playlist. Both parts should play one after another in the player embedded below. Double click to watch it on Youtube at larger size.
(EDIT: I am not sure why Youtube keeps making this Playlist inaccessible, but I am wearying of it. Here is Part 1 and here is Part 2.)
