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

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

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...
MegaBots: Because Death By Natural Causes Sounded Too Easy

MegaBots: Because Death By Natural Causes Sounded Too Easy

Articles, Blog, Culture, News, Tech, Uncategorized, Video Update, Videos
In Mobile Suit Gundam, Pacific Rim, and Super Sentai, giant robots wreak havoc across burning landscapes under flashes of lightning and the roar of mechanized battlecries passionately echoing across their battlefields. The concept of such a thing happening in reality seems farfetched and fraught with so many potential problems that it makes the pursuit of such a future seem like it may not really be worth the effort. Enter MegaBots Inc., who puts forth the effort so we don't have to, to results that, if nothing else, are certainly interesting. In 2015, the tech company issued a challenge to Japan's Suidobashi Heavy Industry to do battle, pitting the giant robots representing each group against each other. Despite the fact that this is clearly insane, they agreed, and so the fight was ...

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 ...
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 ...

Premium Bandai has revealed all-new exclusive S.H.Figuarts based on another Ultraman character, Alien Zarab. Previously Zarab was been made into Tamashii Nations figures, two exclusive Ultra-Acts, under his Imitation Ultraman guise.

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

Animation, Anime, Articles, Blog, Comics, Movies & TV, News, Uncategorized, Video Update
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...

Green Ranger Michael Taber Opens Up About Controversial Tweet

Articles, Blog, Culture, Movies & TV, News, Power Rangers, Toku, Uncategorized
At this year's recent Sac-Anime convention, actor Michael Taber elaborated on a story that began in early August, when a message was posted to Twitter concerning his time as part of the cast of Power Rangers Dino Charge. The 2015 incarnation of the popular Power Rangers franchise saw a new group of young adults brought from the US to film in bucolic New Zealand - a dream come true, many aspiring actors might tell you. But, according to Taber's unexpected social media outburst, the scenery was not always reflective of the experience. Far from the first time an actor from the long-running action/adventure series has expressed discontent after the lights came down, the Power Rangers brand has experienced minor controversies since its early stages. Talent leaving the project under uncerta...

Kamen Rider Ryuki’s Matsuda Satoshi Announces Birth of First Child

In 2002, actor Matsuda Satoshi played the tough, brooding warrior Kamen Rider Knight, filling the children of Japan with wonder at his exploits with super-powered friends and foes on Kamen Rider Ryuki. This month, he announced that a child of his own has arrived. Matsuda, who played the prickly, black-clad Akiyama Ren (as well as the voice of his American counterpart in Kamen Rider Dragon Knight), had these thoughts to share on the momentous occasion. I have, Become a Father(* ̄▽ ̄) For me who had grown in a family where "My father was no longer there for my Birthday of One Year Old", this is the most distant feeling that "I will become a Father". Should I say it is because of the Stork (Kounotori) Um? Kouno, Dori?? (It doesn't matter which ever it is!). This small life whi...
