Daitarn 3, episode 40, borrowing the power of the sun one last time


Here it is, D-Day, the day you’ve been waiting for, the day where we finish releasing the old school giant super robot goodness that is Daitarn 3. Big thanks to the team that managed this all: SCIENCE, who translated the whole show based off the Italian, and made this whole show possible, Zefnex for being the first timer on the project, Sardien, who took over timing and editing after Zefnex disappeared for reasons unknown. My role in this was simply to check the translation against the Japanese after Science approached us for assistance due Zefnex’s aforementioned disapperance.

Here’s the link to the last episode, where we learn of Koros’ true intentions and Don Zauther awakens into a truly formidable foe:
Sendspace link (Megaupload was being bitchy)
Fixed Megaupload link

Also we have for you a full torrent with all 40 episodes. Please seed if you can, it would be much appreciated.

Edit: The first torrent had one of the episodes wrong, the current version is a fixed one.

  3. Jacopo Says:

    If you translated it based on the the italian dubbing, I hope you use the second dub one who came out: the first, of the eighties, was in fact really weak and poor, and killed the meaning of Daitarn’s 3 ending…

    What’s up next?

  24. kidoga Says:

    I have found a rare information about the storyline in one of the Italian sites and to be honest some of this information is not mentioned even in the Japanese sites and forums.

    translating from google :

    The Plot
    The series is set in the first decade of the twenty-first century. Professor Sozo Haran, a great scientist who moved earth to Mars, develop a new type of cyborg with a will of its own, called Megadeth.
    Shortly after their birth robots beyond the control of their creator and occupy Mars killing Dr. Haran, his wife and their eldest son Ded. Megadeth preparations are made to transform into robot slaves-all of Earth’s inhabitants to extend the domination of their empire over the whole universe.
    The youngest son of Dr. Haran, Banjo, helped by his mother, escapes from Mars on board of five rockets on which is loaded Daitarn 3, a powerful transformable robot was also built by his father, plus a huge amount of gold from ore mined in the world.
    Arrived on Earth the boy, helped dall’imperturbabile Butler Garrison, settles in a beautiful villa by the sea at the base of which installs a secret base from which the powerful transformable robot.
    They start out the adventures of our hero, driven by his hatred of the Megadeth and his father (their creator) – which blames the death of his mother and brother – manages to save Earth’s inhabitants from their terrible fate and to defeat the terrible Donzauker forever.

    The Finale
    Koros, the aide Donzauker, tired of repeated failures, he decided to throw against Mars the Earth to destroy all human beings.
    Banjo determined to anticipate the moves of the enemy and ready for a showdown, he decides to leave for Mars, accompanied by a team of assistants.
    While Garrison, Toppy, Beauty and Reika face the armed Megadeth onboard rockets, Banjo can break enemy lines and penetrate the palace Donzauker. Inside the fortress Banjo faces and defeats the evil Koros but a desperate plea for help the woman awakens Donzauker Megadeth, lying in a catatonic state. After an exhausting battle Dozauker is defeated by the determination of Banjo and the heroes can return to Earth.

    In the house getting ready for departure, Reika is the first to leave the house, followed by Toppy and Beauty. Garrison is the last to leave, closing the gates of the villa.

    Garrison is waiting at the bus stop in the pouring rain and in the villa you can see a faint light still on. Then, stamping his foot on the ground and cries out to heaven: “1, 2, 3, Daitarn III.

    Notes to the final

    The publication of the animated series by DYNIT, including a new Japanese dubbing more faithful to the original edition, with fans unleashed a series of observations about the characters and the final was not possible to grasp the issue known to the television general public.
    With these notes we try to give objective information resulting from the vision of the series, with particular attention to the last episode, with additional information derived from publications on Japanese artbooks and magazines identified as “official.”
    Points to summarize the major issues raised by the fans.

    Certainty expressed by the dialogues explicitly

    Banjo’s father is the creator of Megadeth, and he used his mother and brother of Banjo as guinea pigs
    Banjo, for the reason mentioned above, he hates his father and all that Megadeth are
    Zauker Don has always been driven by Koros and has stayed practically since Banjo was a child
    More than lovers, Koros and Don Zauser seem more husband and wife, since Koros turns to the brainy as “anata” which is a very formal way of saying “you”, but within a family is typically used his wife to contact her husband.
    Don Zauser refers to the father of Banjo as “commander Aran”
    At the time of maximum difficulty Banjo hears the voice of his father. His father says that he will win, because the human will is stronger. Banjo recovers and manages to destroy Don Zauser, but says clearly that does not accept the help of (spiritual) father and will do what he should do with his own strength
    Don Zauser is completely subdued by Koros even when awake (that does nothing but talk about punishing Banjo to have hurt Koros).
    When the Daitarn lands on Mars, Banjo clearly expresses its distaste for the ideals of his father, and refrain from delivering the coup de grace to Koros
    In the words of farewell Beauty, Reika Toppo and there is no hint of resentment about the situation.
    The ideal that all men of Megadeth to end the war and finally unite mankind under one banner is an ideal of Don Zauser. There is far from clear that this was the original draft of Dr. Aran.
    Given these certainties can draw many different considerations and assumptions more imaginative but they are not supported by evidence.
    1) could be a Banjo Megadeth – unlikely, is the hero of the story, so it is absolutely normal that it is not an ordinary person. Bend the steel? It can be seen only in the first episode, and moreover it is clear that doing so makes a lot of effort.
    2) Don Zauker could be the father Banjo – unlikely but not explicitly stated.
    3) Koros could be the mother of Banjo – unlikely, especially in light of the clashes in the final battle full of emotional intensity and “sex” which had little of the mother-child relationship.
    4) Koros could be the former girlfriend of Banjo
    5) Don Zauker could be the brother of one of the brothers Banjo

    Evidently the final, are characterized by the classic “happy ending”, has left open to many interpretations and suggestive hypotheses that make this series even more intriguing and exciting.

    Thanks to SaotomeMondo, who read and commented on the latest episode in the original language of Japanese

    Thanks to Lucam for his highly detailed information provided to me that makes it official custodian of Knowledge of Daitarn3.

    I didn’t like the idea that don is a father of banjo and koros is his mother, the information that has been confirmed is that sozo was killed by don zauker How he was able to return to life and became the same person same thing for banjo’s mother

    Hi guys

    Can you re seed Daitarn 3 please? I just found out about this one and no one is seeding it…

  28. yaminoseigi Says:

    Seriously Daitarn 3’s anime leaves me so disappointed with such weird end since the series was quite awesome in SRW series. I still wonder why Tomino decided to pull such twist, is it for the sake to spite his sponsors?
