Here's what's happening on the next episode of Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger, Space 36: The Legend That Sleeps Within Lucky's Homeworld. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-enpb4ikC0 "Don Armage was secretly possessing Hoshi Minato! The Kyurangers are greatly surprised by this fact. However, it is true that the Don Armage they defeated wasn’t as strong as they thought he would be. So is it really possible that there is more than just one Don Armage in the universe? To find out, the Kyurangers make their way towards Planet Southern Cross. Meanwhile, the Kyurangers receive an urgent transmission from the Leo Minor System, Planet Ruth. Yes, Ruth, the planet where Lucky was raised. They were also able to hear cries of living creatures within the transmission as well. Lucky suddenly hears the voic...

Earth of the future has become a smoldering den of kaiju in Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, the new animated feature from Polygon Pictures and creature-feature titan Toho. In this 3D animated tale, a group of space travelers whose family had once abandoned the ravaged Earth now return to the place humanity once called home, for one last battle against the horde of monsters that now rule in their stead. Let's check out the trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYwAbBI0r5o That beam tho. Planet of the Monsters comes to us three years after Legendary Pictures released their own Godzilla, and one year after Toho's Shin Godzilla woke the fire-breathing beast from cinematic hibernation on its native shores of Japan. It proves an unexpected follow-up to the live-action effort from Att...

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 ...

Game of Thrones: The Anime – Winter is Animated

The war for the Iron Throne just got a little more epic, with this fun opening credits sequence from French Youtuber Malec. Inspired by the wildly popular fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, this interprets the battle to save Westeros, and the many dramatic turns it takes, in a fashion only Japanese animation can deliver. Or at least something like it. Check out the fan-made opening credits sequence here, but newcomers be warned. There be spoilers in these waters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efD3nmwF-IM I love that the music, while evoking the typical sound of classic anime openers, also adopts the style of the actual Game of Thrones theme, one of the most iconic of its kind. Interspersing Japanese lyrics with seemingly random English adds the perfect touch. Particularly the phra...

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Trailer – Embracing Destiny

Articles, Blog, Movies & TV, News, Uncategorized, Video Update, Videos
The Star Wars saga continues with the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, second in the new Skywalker trilogy, returning us to a galaxy far, far away at a time of great unrest. Director Rian Johnson steps up to the plate to bring us another taste of the visual feast coming this December. And when the last trailer ends with a grizzled Luke claiming that the famed heroes known as the Jedi must end, it has a lot to live up to. Not only does The Last Jedi have the responsibility of carrying on the torch passed on from The Force Awakens, JJ Abrams' first chapter in the trilogy, it must expand upon the characters and their universe in fresh, interesting ways. And it must handle with grace and care what we suspect is the final full performance of Carrie Fisher (General Leia Organa),...

Here's a thing. In a grim future, where humanity is at the edge of extinction (because what other futures are there, really?), five brothers set about changing their unenviable fate and a giant robot is born from the ashes of their effort. Thus is the plot of Brave Storm, the reimagined tokusatsu film that merges the mythologies of two special effects drama series, Silver Kamen and Super Robot Red Baron. Still with me? Because I have names and titles, some of which may be of interest to fans of the Kamen Rider and Ultraman franchises. This movie has some deep cuts in the world of toku. Leading the cast is a notable line-up of tokusatsu actors, including Watanabe Shu (Eiji, Kamen Rider OOO) and Yamamoto Chihiro (Laiha, Ultraman Geed). Watanabe is seen in the trailer piloting what looks...

Let the rubber bodies hit the floor, with this sickass trailer for the all-new Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders. This winter Kamen Rider film brings together a host of legends from the franchise's recent history, including Kamen Rider Build, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, Kamen Rider Gaim, Kamen Rider Fourze, and more. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1CbwR8RMzg Now, I know this is a movie, but I didn't expect this trailer to make it look so much like a movie! There's a highly cinematic quality to the editing style chosen for this presentation that I am completely okay with. Of course, we know that it's still going to be the usual "really expensive TV episode" flavor that pervades the whole event in actuality, but I love the degree of serious prestig...

Naomi Scott's star is on the rise lately. The British import starred in this year's Power Rangers reboot film as high school queen bee superhero Kimberly, the Pink Ranger, only to be later cast as Arabian Princess Jasmine in the live-action reboot of another beloved franchise, Disney's Aladdin. She may be putting her singing chops to good use in that role, but in the meantime, she's got new music of her own to show off. From her upcoming EP, here's the official video for her latest single, Vows. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWxk3bNXgAk In this artful R&B music video, Naomi is seen in the reflection of her rearview mirror as she drives through the neon-soaked Tokyo, Japan. Astute Ranger fans may raise an eyebrow at the subtitles which alternate between a pink and yellow font, ...

The excitement lasts all night long in the new Kamen Rider Climax Fighters video game, ready to Rider Kick its way into English-speaking homes this winter. Featuring superheroes from across the Kamen Rider television franchise battling it out for supremacy on a grand stage (because reasons), to decide once and for all who really starts on a climax. Take a gander at the sick trailer, featuring the dulcet tones of PANDORA and the Kamen Rider Girls, providing the soundtrack to this epic battle royale. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BVUClirzvo Well, they already had my curiosity, but seeing the video open with Kamen Rider Faiz Axel, now they have my attention. Joining him in this fighting game event are Kamen Rider Den-O, Kamen Rider Gaim, Kamen Rider Double, the new Kamen Rider Build, a...

Tatsunoko Productions celebrates 55 years of badassery with the animated crossover event, Infini-T Force. The CG anime series gathers heroes from four of its classic titles to form a new band of superpowered saviors. Dating as far back as 1972, these iconic characters have been through many iterations across the decades, finally arriving together in this television story that unifies them all in grand fashion. In case the amusingly on-the-nose meta-joke in the name "Infini-T" doesn't ring any bells, this team consists of four main players, nearly all of which have had some connection to the English-speaking world, even if only in a Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon sort of way. First there's Ken the Eagle from Science Ninja Team Gatchaman. His anime adventures are well-known to anime fans...
