Take flight with this new Inuyashiki teaser trailer. The upcoming film adapts the popular manga series, in which the title character, an aging salaryman with a dreadfully ordinary life, suddenly becomes extraordinary when a fateful explosion changes everything. But along for the ride is another who has been gifted with the same strange abilities Inuyashiki now possesses. And this guy doesn't share his wholesome philosophy about what to do with the considerable power they now wield. Shenanigans, as they inevitably must, will ensue. Despite the fact that our unlikely lead hero gleefully sings the Astro Boy theme song when he first discovers his gifts, this story may not be quite as bright and happy as it sounds. Writer/illustrator Oku Hiroya's original comic, recently given the anime tr...

Ladies and gentlemen, he's back. The laughing lunatic Dan Kuroto has returned to make more mischief, ready to take his twisted brand of self-centered devilry to the next level. But the mysterious coroner with indoor sunglasses Kujo Kiriya has a bone to pick with his old nemesis, and it's finally time to reset the score we left them with when the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid television series came to a close. Why bother resolving a storyline when you can have countless follow-ups? It's the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid: Another Ending Trilogy Part 3! Swiftly making its way to home media after a brief pit-stop in Japanese theaters, the third and final of these post-series Ex-Aid stories brings back fan-favorite Dan Kuroto, known to many as Dangerous Zombie himself, Kamen Rider Genm, as well as Kujo Kiriya a...

Kamen Rider fans have one more reason to shout at the moon in the coming year, as the first volume to the Kamen Rider W: Fuuto Detectives manga is headed for a Spring release to satisfy all your jazzy, noir-tinted, superheroic needs. Based upon the Kamen Rider W television series, the official sequel from original TV writer Sanjo Riku and artist Satou Masaki has been published in Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine for the past several months, and will now be made available in this collection. Let's take a gander at some potential cover art for the upcoming releases. FuutoKoushiki on Twitter provides the goods: Kamen Rider W: Fuuto Detectives catches up with the "half-boiled" detective Hidari Shotaro and his oddball partner Phillip, each forming one half of the combined crimefi...

Here's what's happening on the next episode of Kamen Rider Build. https://youtu.be/Kh9hYIbLK_U Episode 17: Outbreak of the Rider Wars! At last the war has begun! Instigated by virtue of Hokuto through their prime minister's actions, the Touto government officially instigates the Kamen Rider as their military weapon. "I do not intent to become a tool of war" Sento replies. There is a reluctance in Sento's words though, as he realizes that the outbreak of this war was also due to him creating the Rider System and the Smash. Just what decision will these two warriors make?

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...

Recently, the identity of the new Kamen Rider Grease was finally revealed. Yet, for those who have not been following the Kamen Rider Build television series, Grease is the third Rider that will appear in the series. This character's information has been teased since mid to late fall through various toy catalogue and magazine scans. Now, unlike Kamen Rider Build, Kamen Rider Grease will be using the Sclash Driver and the Sclashjellies to transform rather than the Build Driver and Full Bottles. His signature weapon is known as the Twin Breaker.  Now, as for the identity of Kamen Rider Grease, it is Saruwatari Kazumi who will be portrayed by Kohei Takeda. Kamen Rider Grease is stated to a secret assassin hired by Hokuto. According to Natalie, Saruwatari Kazumi will debut...

Welcome to the start of a brand new series here on HJU, Scholars Talking Toku. My name is Justin Mullis. I'm a scholar working in the academic field of religious studies with a life long love of Japanese pop-culture. Earlier this year an essay I wrote, "Notes from the Land of Light: Observations on Religious Elements Seen in Ultraman" was published in the book Giant Creatures in Our World: Essays on Kaiju and American Popular Culture (2017, McFarland Press) edited by Camille D.G. Mustachio and Jason Barr. I recommend you pick it up! When I started working on this essay I believed that I was breaking new ground, that work by academics on Japanese superheroes was probably minuscule to nonexistent. What I soon realized however was that a number of scholars were in fact interested in this...
