Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Foundation X Marks The Spot?

Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Foundation X Marks The Spot?

Articles, Blog, Kamen Rider, Movies & TV, News, Rumor, Toku, toku, tokublogs, tokusatsu, Uncategorized
New posters for this winter's Kamen Rider mega-crossover event, Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders, have surfaced, and we've got our microscopes handy for some good old-fashioned speculation about what these images could mean for the landmark film. As the headlining Kamen Rider Build takes center stage as the final Rider series of this decades-long franchise to air during Japan's Heisei Era, this can be seen as the closing chapter of an epic saga. At least until next year, where we inevitably start all over again. First, the beautious new posters for the film, featuring the star-studded cast of superheroic figures of past and present, among which are a few actors that many Rider fans never believed they'd see again. Oh yes. From left to r...

Garo: Kiba – The Dark Knight US Blu-ray Release

Kraken Releasings is at it again, with this new domestic film release from the popular Garo franchise, featuring more demon-hunting action than you can shake a glowing saber at. It's Garo: Kiba - The Dark Knight! Not to be confused with the other Dark Knight. Wrong animal theme. Fewer naked ladies. Kraken's synopsis is as follows: He was born the child of a Makai Knight and a Makai Priestess. He trained to become a Makai Knight and fight the nightmarish creatures known as Horrors. Everything changed when the forces of evil intervened and stole everything he loved, the man who was once named Barago turned to a darker path. Learning to hate everything he once cherished, and twisting his oaths and armor to a new, sinister purpose, he makes a monstrous bargain with the ultimate Horror ...
Kamen Rider Build Episode 7 Won’t Go Quietly Into The Night

Kamen Rider Build Episode 7 Won’t Go Quietly Into The Night

Articles, Blog, Kamen Rider, Movies & TV, Reviews, Toku, toku, tokublogs, tokusatsu, Uncategorized
As we hit the gong on this drama-filled half-hour, the identity of Night Rogue is finally revealed, an angry Ryuuga goes ape, and a sad panda fights a losing battle in a strange land. It's just another day at the mad scientist's office for Kamen Rider Build, in Episode 7! For those of us still keeping score, this makes seven straight episodes now that Kamen Rider Build has directly affected the main plot of the series and moved us forward at a strong pace. At some point, I may get sick of pointing this out, but today is not that day. I'm still tickled pink at the prospect of a Kamen Rider show with at least 40-something episodes of pure development and very little fat to trim. It's been fivever since I was this engaged, and I don't want the ride to stop. We begin with Ryuuga impati...
Ultraman Geed Goes A Little Mad In The New ‘Mob Psycho 100’

Ultraman Geed Goes A Little Mad In The New ‘Mob Psycho 100’

Animation, Anime, Books, Comics, Movies & TV, News, Toku, toku, tokublogs, tokusatsu, Ultraman, Uncategorized
Prepare to free your mind, as the popular Mob Psycho 100 manga is now being adapted to live-action. Courtesy of ONE, of One-Punch Man fame, the original web-comic series has already taken the anime world by storm, and now, with help from some friends in the explosive worlds of Ultraman, Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, and more, the property is set to make its live-action debut on Netflix. In the lead role, as psychic middle schooler Mob, is Tatsuomi Hamada, best known to some as Riku, the title hero of Ultraman Geed. It may come as no surprise that Hamada was chosen for the part, considering both Geed and Mob Psycho share the same series director in Koichi Sakamoto, whose street cred stretches far and wide in the live-action special effects genre, from Power Rangers and Super Sentai to ...

The Power Rangers launch into the world of tabetop RPGs with the new Power Rangers Hyperforce. This new role-playing experience comes to us from Hyper RPG on the Twitch streaming platform, featuring a gaggle of geek-centric talents that many will recognize from both within and without the growing Ranger community. Den of Geek provides a synopsis: Power Rangers Hyperforce is set in the year 3016 at Time Force Academy. A team of Time Force Ranger cadets must band together to defeat an ancient evil who is set on unraveling the very fabric of the universe.

2017’s Best Power Rangers Episode Is a Voltron Episode

2017’s Best Power Rangers Episode Is a Voltron Episode

Animation, Anime, Articles, Blog, Culture, Movies & TV, Power Rangers, Reviews, Toku, toku, tokusatsu, Uncategorized
Voltron: Legendary Defender is back at it, with another burst of hilarity and excitement in the show's fourth season on Netflix. And, as we hunkered down to catch up with the heroic, space-faring Paladins of Voltron and their robotic lions, we were treated to a special episode that some of us in the tokusatsu fandom couldn't help but find a bit familiar. While there are plenty easy comparisons to be made between them and the multi-colored Teenagers With Attitude of the live-action Power Rangers franchise (and their Super Sentai cousins from across the pond), none would be so bold as with this season's striking fourth episode, "The Voltron Show". We're not just throwing shade, folks. We're launching it out of a circus cannon to the tune of a full-scale marching band. And the result, true ...
‘Kamen Rider W: Fuuto Detectives’ Knows Which Way The Wind Blows

‘Kamen Rider W: Fuuto Detectives’ Knows Which Way The Wind Blows

Articles, Blog, Books, Comics, Culture, Kamen Rider, Movies & TV, Reviews, Toku, toku, tokublogs, Uncategorized
In the summer of 2010, tokusatsu fans said goodbye to the lovable heroes of the Narumi Detective Agency, and the many wacky denizens of Fuuto City, when Kamen Rider W came to an end. Of course, several appearances occurred after that, but the loss of this pulpy action-noir world in regular doses was perhaps felt more strongly for some than with most other titles in the Kamen Rider pantheon. While the tradition of a new Kamen Rider taking up the spotlight from the old with each passing year continued to be observed, introducing us to many wondrous new facets of this crazy franchise, there was always a special place in my heart for the two-in-one detectives, Shotaro and Phillip, and their quest to rid the city of dangerous contraband known as Gaia Memories. It's with this thought in min...

Full-Blown Fullmetal Alchemist Goes Fully Live-Action, In Full Trailer

Fullmetal Alchemist, the story that refuses to die, will not stop until it's inhabited every entertainment medium known to man, twice. Inspired by the original manga from Arakawa Hiromu, the journey of two brothers in a fantastical world has been chronicled multiple times in animated form, to rapturous praise by many, and critical side-eyes by a few. We imagine the same will be the case when their latest incarnation, in the form of this new live-action film, comes to the big screen this December. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NRt4keIZZk I haven't seen more than a few episodes of the anime years ago (shut up, I know) but, at the very least, the film looks visually striking. The effects work is far beyond what I'd expected to see, and the scenery and costumes are all lovely. Apparentl...
