(TL;DR: there's some video clip links at the end that hopefully will be worth a few thank yous...)

Time to give an annual update on the hunt for obscure superheroine shows and movies. :)

My friends, on the whole it has been a positive year, and the immediate future looks bright. In the last 18 months many superheroine shows previously thought unobtainable have started to surface thanks to content owners in places such as Indonesia and The Philippines starting to put entire runs of old series online. We can but hope that this continues -- who knows, one day we may be able to glimpse a few moments of that most mythical of beasts, Super Klenk (a show I know some of you have suggested is mere fable and folklore.)

In Japan, TOEI has continued putting up episodes of its 'comedy heroines' superheroine shows onto YouTube. Currently it has episodes of うたう!大龍宮城 (Utau! Dai Ryugujo) up, which admittedly is the weakest of the 'comedy heroines' shows from a superhero perspective, but worth seeing merely for completeness. Next year expect 有言実行三姉妹シュシュトリアン (Yugen Jikkou Sisters Chouchoutrian) to become available. (You'll need a VPN or proxy located in Japan to see them.)

Sadly I found out too late that the entire run of the Filipino show Krystala appears to have been put up onto Jeepney TV's streaming service. It has subsequently been taken down, but hopefully the channel will reshow it, giving us a chance to see more episodes.

In Indonesia Indosiar and MVP have been putting up entire runs of old shows. Indosiar has recently been adding all 150+ episodes of its ultra-low budget early 90s kids superheroine show, Saras 008, to vidio.com. Meanwhile MVP has put up both seasons of Panji Manusia Millenium onto its MVP Hits channel on YouTube. Previously I was unaware that a second season existed, and thought that the show ended abruptly on a cliffhanger. When I began to watch the second season I discovered all my hopes had come true: the mysterious superheroine sidekick Putri Rubi is a regular character and appears in almost every episode (she joined in episode 60 of season one, if you want to track down her appearances, although she spends the first few episodes in her glamorous secret identity only.)

Putri Rubi is basically a bit like Batman, except in red and with high heels, Sometimes the show uses her for laughs, sometimes (later in the run) she gets involved in the fighting and demonstrates a wider range of abilities. By the end of S2 she's reasonably formidable. Here's a few clips:

(1)  Abducted  (1x77)
(2)  Street fight  (2x07)
(3)  Vs. a super villain  (2x10)

Looking to the future, we can only hope that the trend of non-English broadcasters putting up old shows online continues. The Philippines particularly has several superheroine soap operas that ran for dozens or hundreds of episodes (Darna 2005, Darns 2009, Varga, Krystala, etc...) Often all we have of them is poor VHS quality clips or odd episodes, so the prospect of seeing them in reasonable quality is welcomed.

Keep a look out..!!! If you see a show get put up online, post a message on this thread. Even if a show is restricted inside a particular streaming service, or locked to only a particular country domain, there are sometimes ways of getting access so that clips can be enjoyed by a wider audience.

EDIT: Putri Rubi apparently translates as Ruby Princess. So now we know. :)

I think one of the problems here is that collectors don't inform each other of what they've got. These shows are copyrighted materials, so I don't recommend dumping stuff up publicly. At the same time, they are often damn near impossible to get through legitimate means, even in their countries of origin. As such I've occasionally traded material via private file upload sites (like Mega) with specific individuals to help other enthusiasts fill in their collections, and (in return) to help fill in gaps in my own. I trade intelligence on shows too, so fellow collectors become aware of what's out there. But this only works if collectors know who has what, and who is is looking for what. (A nice bonus is if your hard disk goes kapput, you know other people who can send you back your own files. But: always back up your hard disks -- the price of good quality 2Tb USB drive these days is trivial.)

I spent a lot of years working in the rotating media (aka hard disk drive) business, and today, I don't own a single one of them. And never will again.

On any given month for any given product, every disk drive company turns out shit, and the high-capacity, low cost stuff sold to consumers are the absolute bottom of the barrel. OEM's get the best stuff.

SSD might be more expensive, but with high likelihood, you'll always get your data back. With rotating media, it's a given that they will ALL fail, Just a matter of time. 

BTW... they follow the bathtub curve for reliability. High failure rate when they are new (under a year) and high failure rate when they are old (varies on usage, but usually after 3 or 4 years).  Not as bad in the middle (floor of the bathtub).

But why would anyone put something you really want on a device that will likely loose it? Archiving data for long-term storage on rotating media is the nuttiest thing of all. You have to keep multiple copies on different drives, preferably three different physical units. That's crazy when you think about it. 

An interesting thought... in the distant future, when archeologists want to study the past and discover how we lived and what we thought, they are going to find that our entire culture has erased itself. No ancient scrolls or stone tablets. Only our impossible-to-decompose plastic garbage will remain. I wonder what they will conclude about us?

I'm actually looking for the Krystala series, too.  I don't want every single episode (not right away, anyway), but I'd like to see a couple of full episodes to see what its like.  Same goes for that Super Juffie movie.

On Krystala, does anyone have any thoughts on this site?

https://watchfullmovie.xyz/tv/4578

They're claiming to have Krystala episodes, but I don't trust them wanting a credit card (I get that they don't trust me, but they seem to be saying I should trust them with that info) or that they list it as having 0 episodes.

So is this a viable site or a dead end?  Any thoughts?

Short answer: no (it's a dead end.)

Long answer: noooooooooooo!

These sites just harvest names of movies and tv shows from IMDB then create bogus search-bait pages for them, either to attract ad revenue, or to fool people into handing over their credit card details. The mindlessness with which they spit out generic pages for each show is frequently amusing. They'll often tout 4K or HD quality for classic tv shows shot on videotape in the 1970s. Or they'll list running times that are hilariously inaccurate: every movie will be assigned 92 minutes and every tv show 52 minutes per episode (as they don't have access to the real data.)

For anyone trying to find genuine information on rare shows they are a pain the the backside, as they spam search results even if you aren't looking for videos to watch or download. 

(EDIT: If I can remember (if!!), I'll put up one or two episodes of Krystala in sub-VHS quality, and send you the link privately via chat. In the meantime you can have a look at a blog post I wrote on the series some time back .)

I found that (luckily short) Volta serie really atrocious, pretty much like the movie (or maybe worse). Do you have Kapitan Aksiyon Komiks single episode ?

I've got a 12 Disk NAS on Raid 5ish.  Not sure I could store all my data online without big monthly bills.  They all die so I just let the NAS keep things humming along.  And you never know, I could have the whole thing go up in smoke someday.

Been a long time since I posted on the site, nut this thread gave me a good reason.

Anyway been checking some of the shows mentioned here and stumbled across some kind of teen wolf like show on youtube called Manusia Harimau

At first it looked like  guys only stuff but there are at least two female wolves and one of them breaks free from some heavy chains in ep 68

edit: another chain break in ep 105

Some other YT show with occasional feats i know of are FIR and Trideviyaan all of thwm are legally on there as far i can tell

Anyhow just wanted to give back and maybe start a 'scanning' team to find all the strength bits in these shows.

In a similar vein, ป่านางเสือ1 is a Thai show about a team (with at least one woman) who can call upon tiger spirit powers in times of emergency. There's no real costumes, except they dress in black and wear tiger eye masks, and the action largely involves super-powered running, leaping, and martial arts (although admittedly I only sampled a couple of episodes.) Numerous episodes on YT.
