Status Partially Found

Cyborg Kuro-chan was an anime series, lasting from October 2nd, 1999, to January 6th, 2001, on TV Tokyo in Japan. It was about a housecat named Kuro, who was kidnapped and turned into a cyborg by an evil scientist, named Dr. Go, for his plans of world domination.

An English dub of the series was made, presumably in Malaysia, but only episodes 3-12 are currently available to watch online.[1] The dub originally aired on Animax Asia in 2004, all 65 episodes were dubbed.[2] The dub itself is highly rare, and the credits sequence is still in its unaltered, all Japanese language form, with no sign of the dub's voice actors, or the dubbing company itself. The first 14 episodes were released as VCDs by "Speedy Video Malaysia" which were sold on various websites in the early to late 2000s.

While episodes 3-12 are the only full episodes available online, there does exist a clip of of the series' 2nd episode, which can be seen in the video below. The 1st and 2nd episodes do exist, but only on the mentioned VCDs, and not online. It is unknown that there were any English dub episodes after 14 was made.

I heard from a person who saw that dube that episodes 1-65 were dubbed and released on Animax. I also remember seeing some of the VCDs on sale ages ago, one of which contained episodes 1-14. I guess the first 14 episodes were the only ones to be released on VCD.

I've downloaded episodes 9,11 and 12 before they were sadly blocked. You can still find episodes 12 on Dailymotion.

Is there a reason as to why the episode summaries are written poorly? Is it a joke from the show or no?

The summaries are the official summaries from the VCD...

If they are the official summaries of the episodes, I would suggest to change some of the wording in the sentences because some of them are confusing like for example The Genius's summary "Kuro found another creature whose look alike him appeared on the TV and hi-jacked a battle-ship." should change to "Kuro found another creature whose look alike appeared on TV and hi-jacked a battle-ship" so it can be easier to understand and remove the bad grammar and have better punctuation.

Her official name is Pooly. The "r" in her name in the VCD description must have been translation error.

So I have managed to save some of the dub but most of it has been blocked by the copyright holders of the anime. Episodes 9,11 and 12 have been save and the 2nd half of 4,5,6,7 and 10 have been saved. I plan on dubbing the audio over the higher quality Japanese versions. When I do that I'll share them.

I wonder if there's another English dub. The Italian company Mondo TV lists the show as Cat Stuff: Cyber Kurochan on their website: http://www.m...t-stuff.html

I guess that page is for if any companies want to buy the rights to it to make a dub, but I'm not sure.

Everything from the YT link is deleted. In the other hand, i can confirm the complete latin american version of this can be found with little to no effort on the web.

Unfortunately Kodansha went and blocked almost every Kuro episode on YouTube, including the dubs. Also, where can I find the Latin American dub? I've only ever been able to find a handful of episodes.
