Bring me your plastic, your vinyl, your huddled piles of Battlizer parts! Tokusatsu. It's a term we can use to refer to larger-than-life kaiju movies, exciting henshin hero shows, science fiction dramas, and more. The fandom for this subgenre is far-reaching. One aspect that seems to touch all areas of this community we love: Collecting. That is the thought behind this newest feature series here at Henshin Justice Unlimited; we want to see your collection!  From Super Sentai, Power Rangers, Kamen Rider, Godzilla, Ultraman, Garo or any number of other animated or live-action titles that warm our sparking hearts.

The battle to save Touto from the fires of war continue on Kamen Rider Build, as genius amnesiac Kiryuu Sento finds he's not the only bug-eyed super-dude without memories running around these days. Last time, Kamen Rider Kiva's Takeda Touhei debuted as the new mystery soldier from neighboring territory Hokuto, leading the charge (in his own lethargic, unmotivated way) into Touto to retrieve the Martian Pandora Box, and the Full Bottles needed to access its immense, unknowable power. Now, he and his three dopey subordinates are ready to butt heads with Sento and Ryuuga to prove their mettle. But first, another recap, as narrated by Sento, though this time we find our sarcastic hero in a surprisingly low-key mood. Recent events have taken the wind out of his sails, but a sudden intrusio...

The Power Rangers comic book saga rolls on with BOOM! Studios' first major event, Power Rangers: Shattered Grid. In which, the beloved books in the series all link up as the villainous Lord Drakkon, ever the sore loser, means to do some damage to the multicolored heroes that defeated him once before. This time, it'll take more than the teenage saviors of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to send him packing. To that end, the ongoing series is recruiting an army of heroes from across the decades-spanning television franchise, many of whom longtime fans have been dying to see since the comic came into being. A breakdown of upcoming issues, along with some exceedingly dope artwork, awaits below. BOOM! sounded the alarm on the crossover extravaganza, putting together heroes from seasons that e...

It's a strange feeling. Due to the nature of the franchise's continuous airing schedule on television, any hardcore Super Sentai fan may find themselves caught between opposing emotions around this time of year. On the one hand, growing imminently aware that the current cycle is about to end, the reigning batch of multicolored do-gooders winding down toward their final installment. On the other hand, getting antsy with anticipation for the new hotness about to snatch the spotlight like a diva with a microphone that doubles as a sword that shoots purple lightning, ready to show the world what they've got. What do I do with all these feels?! We'll figure it out together, as more info rolls out about 2018's newest entry into the ongoing saga, Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger vs Keisatsu Sentai Pat...

It's been a wonderful season for tokusatsu. From the colorful, high-flying adventure of Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger to the intense, take-no-prisoners action of Kamen Rider Build, the world of special effects television has rarely been so exciting. And, as we inch closer to the tearful farewell to the spacey super-team of Kyuranger and ramp up toward the introduction of their successors in the upcoming Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger vs Keisatsu Sentai Patranger, here's a small picture gallery to celebrate the era of these Toei Company heroes. This brief sampling comes courtesy of HeroVision, the tokusatsu-themed publication featuring high-quality images of the stars and assorted memorabilia from their fantastical series, as well as original interviews and commentary from the people who bring the...

Kamen River Kiva is making a comeback. As I clutch my pearls at the thought of it already being a decade since this amazing fantasy action series left the airwaves, Kiva's celebrating its tenth anniversary in style. We've already heard of the new Blu-ray set coming to home video, as well as the introduction of fan-favorite actor Takeda Touhei making his recent debut as a mysterious new superpowered figure in the current series Kamen Rider Build. But why stop there? Surely there's some other way to bring honor to the bat-themed hero and his outrageous circle of friends and rivals as we look back on their wacky adventures together? Well, that's where Kamen Rider The Diner comes in. As previously mentioned, Kamen Rider The Diner has been operating in Ikebukuro, Japan since 2011, serving ...

Wake Up! KAMEN RIDER BUILD Episode 17 Shows Us Who’s Boss

It's funny. I started out reviewing Kamen Rider Build under the assumption that, at some point, it would be less necessary to discuss each episode of the series on an individual basis. Like with most entries into the Kamen Rider franchise (to say nothing of its counterparts in Super Sentai), I expected that we'd eventually reach a point where installments would feel less substantial and thus, waiting a while between reviews would make perfect sense. Nope! Kamen Rider Build has consistently flipped the script on our expectations, bringing new and exciting twists on its narrative week after week, leaving very little room for its fans to lose interest as we barrel through toward the finish line. Before the show's brief hiatus, we were left on a cliffhanger that spelled potential doom for...
Emergency! POWER RANGERS’ Chris Violette Returns to STAR TREK: DISCOVERY

Emergency! POWER RANGERS’ Chris Violette Returns to STAR TREK: DISCOVERY

Articles, Blog, Culture, Gallery, Movies & TV, News, Power Rangers, Toku, Uncategorized
Power Rangers fans who tuned into the premiere episode of the new Star Trek: Discovery got a surprise late last year when one of their own from the spandex-sheathed superhero saga appeared aboard the bridge of the USS Shenzhou as a Starfleet Officer. Chris Violette, known best to many of us here at Henshin Justice Unlimited as Blue Ranger Sky Tate from Power Rangers SPD, had a guest-starring role on the 2017 space opera, as an officer in the star-spanning United Federation of Planets. Not the biggest leap from his job aboard SPD, where he was also a man in uniform, fighting to protect the innocent from the weird and wondrous alien threats of the future. We hoped we might see Violette again on Discovery, but after the events of its two-part opener, many believed we had closed the book on ...

Ultraman Geed, the 29th incarnation of the long-running Ultra Series, has ended. And as we await Tsuburaya Productions' next entry into the ongoing kaiju-fighting super-franchise, we thought it might be fun to take a look back on the 2017 story with a handy collection. We've amassed quite a lot of pictures from the giant hero series, after spending the last several months posting reviews, slowly recapping much of Team Geed's adventures as they fought to protect their world from otherworldly threats. Here's a sampling of the images we've been holding onto, most of which were never included in our many previous Ultraman Geed posts. In the gulf between the start of this new year and the eventual announcement of the new series which will ultimately succeed Geed, we have the upcoming G...

Well, that was fast. After the high drama of our last episode in this amazing series, I incorrectly assumed it would take us a moment to regroup before leaping straight back into the business with Acting Prime Minister Himuro Gentoku and his twisted bid for power, after being exposed for the treasonous conspirator that he is. I should have known by now: Kamen Rider Build laughs in the face of such flimsy expectations. Your timeline is too slow for them. They know what they want to do and there's no time like the present to execute. Episode 16 begins exactly where episode 15 ended, with Gentoku being hauled off for his considerable crimes against his own Touto government, until our genius amnesiac hero Kiryuu Sento stops him to ask why the former minister was taunting him in their prio...
