Magic Kaito Blu Ray Subtitles Question

Postby Frenzy » March 11th, 2016, 11:35 am

So I was looking at the Magic Kaito and Magic Kaito 1412 blu ray sets. They are both very expensive (~$120 for 12 episodes!). I was thinking about buying them regardless of the price because I really like Detective Conan and Kaitou Kid.

However, the issue is that I'm uncertain if there is even English Subtitles for the blu-ray sets.

On the playasia pages it says that there are no subtitles listed. However, the same thing was said about the Legend of the Galactic Heroes box sets but yet they apparently have subtitles according to people on reddit.

Magic Kaito is obviously far less popular than LoGH so finding information is very difficult. I also see what appears to be unofficial releases sold by a 3rd party on ebay for Magic Kaito. I'm pretty sure these are fakes as they are sold extremely cheap (~$10 per DVD lol) and are from Malaysia.

Has anyone bought these? I'm actually really disappointed if they don't have English subtitles.

I own the Magic Kaito 1412 Bluray sets and the Magic Kaito DVDs. The answer is no subtitles. None of the Japanese Magic Kaito/Magic Kaito 1412 or Detective Conan releases have them.

Damn, that's very unfortunate then. I was really close to purchasing them even though legal streaming is on Crunchyroll (which is where I watched it). I might still consider purchasing them in the future just to have them as a collectors item for the most part.

Do you know if any of the Detective Conan blu rays have English subtitles either? The ones I saw earlier said they didn't, which if that's true, annoys me a lot lol.

Edit: nvm after reading your post after typing this I noticed you said Conan doesn't have subs either, damn. Do you speak Japanese or do you just own them for collecting / supporting?

Own them for collecting/supporting. I understand enough of the Japanese dialogue to get a gist of what's going on, which is good, because I run the DC Rewatch and watch the new episodes as they air (so no subs are available). I think I understand hearing it more than I can speak it. (I probably have the speaking ability of a grammatically incorrect kindergartner.)

Oh okay that's cool. I try not to be a freeloader as often as I can and watch on legal streaming services (saw 1412 on Crunchyroll) but I still want the blue rays to support / collect. It really sucks because the only way outside of Japan to watch ~600 episodes of Conan is through other means lol.

I'm unfamiliar with tumblr as it's the only social media I don't use. However I saw someone say something about 3rd base Fourth on there. Is there any way DCTP or someone else can translate it? I've been mildly obsessed with it since I saw that Conan episode about 2 years ago (EP 383) . I've tried looking everywhere and no one has it up on a website or translated. -_-
