New versions of Samurai Heart theme song released

So two new versions of the TV series opening Samurai Heart were recently done and released. The first one is titled, “Samurai Heart 2022-“. The second track is titled, “Samurai Heart – Rekka-“.

I’ve tried to embed these links where possible, but some sites did not have that option. In those cases please click the hyperlink. (Note: The links lead to US music sites. Sites are listed in alphabetical order.)

If you are interested in all of the places where the song is available for the Japanese release, please see this tweet.

YST Albums on Spotify & Amazon Music (US)

This news was brought to my attention by Talisman on the Ronin Warriors/Samurai Troopers Discord server.

Image of Yoroiden Samurai Troopers albums on Spotify.

Above is a screenshot taken earlier today of all of the Yoroiden Samurai Troopers albums available on Spotify (US).

From left to right on that screenshot, the albums are:

  • Gun Rou Hen
  • Ka1
  • Best Friends
  • Kimi Wo Nemurasenai
  • Sei Ran Hen
  • I Jin Hen
  • Fu2
  • Cho3
  • The Legend of Emperor Kikou4
  • Getsu5

1 – Ka > The correct title for this album is Hana.
2 – Fu > The correct title for this album is Kaze.
3 – Cho > The title of this album is Tori.
4 – Kikoutei Densetsu (Legend of the Inferno Armor)
5 – Getsu > Should be titled Tsuki.

EDIT / UPDATE: These same albums are also on Amazon Music (US). (And with the same errors in album titles as above.)
For some reason “Getsu” (aka Tsuki) doesn’t show up when you select the checkbox for Albums, but it is there.

The Best Friend album gives us the only all Mashou song ever done, Kamen no shita no namida (Tears beneath the mask), along with Kayura’s image song Sayonara no Dameishi.
The Mashou voice actors and Kayura’s voice actor also sing in the Best Friends song, along with the voice actors for the Troopers, Nasuti, and Jun

It’s great to see these albums finally on online streaming. Hopefully some more albums will go up, like the karaoke and audio drama albums.

Digitizing the Ronin Warriors dub

A Twitter thread about digitizing the Ronin Warriors dub from the master D2 tape decks.

Many thanks to Talisman for posting this to the fandom discord.

And trying to sync the tracks to the footage:

And this part of the thread I found quite interesting:

Episode 2 was the pilot. Episodes were slowed down for the dub due to cutting down the opening, next episode, and recaps.
