TV-Nihon pulls out Super Sentai Torrents and Kamen Rider Subs after Cease and Desist

The long arm of Tokusatsu justice has reached out to popular torrent site TV-Nihon as they have officially pulled out all Super Sentai torrents and Kamen Rider torrents after getting a Cease and Desist letter.

Check out more details after the cut…


So here’s the lowdown to this. Super Sentai shows and Kamen Rider shows are usually pirated for viewers outside of Japan through torrents; TV-Nihon is one of the websites you can gain access to these torrent files. They make it even better (or worse depending on your perspective) by posting hardsubbed versions done by subbers and subber groups.

TOEI owns the copyright and IP for most of the stuff that we enjoy so while this is a sad turn of events, its something that’s a step towards the right direction in terms of legal consumption of content like Kamen Rider and Super Sentai.

So if this is going to be the case, should we expect other sites that also share Super Sentai torrents and Kamen Rider torrents to get a cease and desist letter too? What about the subbers? Man, do I have a lot of questions regarding this.

    It should be pointed out that they don’t actually know if the e-mail is legitimate or not. Their are some noticeable errors (improper punctuation, lack of capitalization on proper nouns) that could be seen as it being fake. However they also have a lot of information (phone numbers, email adresses, etc) that lean towards it being real. They have said that they pulled the content for now until they figure out its validity.

      I’m actually doing a bit of research on other subbers and torrent sites if they are getting the same thing. OVERTIME doesn’t seem to be getting any flak at the moment. Thanks for the comment too.

    It’s definitely fake. The lack of capitalization on two of their most important franchises for children is already a red flag (“kamen rider”/”super sentai” instead of Kamen Rider/Super Sentai). And if this is an official C&D notice, where is the hanko (company seal) from the letter? Important Japanese documents should have a company stamp in the first place.

    The fact that Overtime caved in to this fake letter by deleting their torrents is just disappointing.
