Kamen Rider Build Episode 6 Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop

Fists are flying in this episode of Kamen Rider Build. After a slightly weaker entry for the previous week, we come back as strong as ever with another fantastic installment in this series that continues to rock my socks. Build, where have you been all my life? Returning us to where we left off, Episode 6 begins with Ryuuga continuing to follow Tatsuya, whom he had deliberately re-infected with Smash essence, turning him back into a brainwashed monster. And wouldn't you know it, we've found the bad guys' lair in the sixth freaking episode of this series, continuing Build's trend of taking the rule book and torching it on a pyre of flaming tropes and modern cliches. Good riddance! After Ryuuga finds himself surrounded, Build comes through with a surprising rescue. Despite getting kn...

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...
Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 1

Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 1

Kamen Rider, Toku, Toys
Well, I haven't hidden my disdain for this year's Kamen Rider toy gimmick very well, but these figures are everything the BCR line should have been and more! I present to you all the SODO line of figures for Kamen Rider Build. Wave 1 contains 3 figures, 2 Best Matches (Rabbit/Tank and Gorilla/Mond) and 1 Trial form (Harinezumi/Soujiki). All of these figures are great, they're show accurate, they articulate beautifully and they can swap around like the show and maintain all the great articulation. The only potential downside (completely dependent on the individual) is the use of stickers, tho if you watch the video to the end you'll see I've provided a solid solution to your potential sticker pealing nightmares. At the end of the day this line is cheaper than 1 BCR figure, articulates be...

It's all coming up Os this week, as not only do we hear the exciting news that Kamen Rider OOO stars Watanabe Shu and Miura Ryunosuke will be reprising their popular roles in the upcoming Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build and Ex-Aid with Legend Riders, but we're also being treated to a brand new toy release from Premium Bandai. Count the Medals in the Buttoba Soul Medal Holder case. SUBARASHI! Contained within this beautiful case is a plethora of powerful Medals from the TV series that title hero Eiji would use to activate various powers and transformations, but one Medal among those found in this set is being kept secret for now. You won't know what it is until you've got it in your hot little hands (or when someone else does it for you, whichever comes first). &...

WAKE UP to the high-quality goodness of Kamen Rider Kiva. The violin-strumming superhero Wataru finally comes to Blu-ray next year, marking the show's 10th anniversary. As I quietly cry into a bowl of soggy cheerios over the fact that it's already been 10 years since this stellar series, check these stats for the upcoming release. Cho-Animedia brings us the lowdown on these items, reportedly containing never-before-seen reflections from the show's cast. A total of three separate sets have been announced at 19,600 yen a pop. Starting with the first release on January 10, then the second on March 7, and finally May 9 will see the last installment. A sweet home video release for any creature of the night.

Since 2011, Kamen Rider The Diner has been serving food and drinks inspired by the many heroes, villains, and other eccentrics of the Kamen Rider superhero universe. Starting this week, the Tokyo restaurant is cooking up some special treats for the Halloween season, featuring Ghosts of Kamen Rider Past and Present. Many of us will be left without the chance to sample these delights, but it won't hurt (much) to make your mouth water a bit. The diner's official Twitter gave us the heads up on their Halloween-themed menu items. It's not every day someone can recommend you swallow graphite and actually mean it in a good way. Among the drinks inspired by the monster Graphite from Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, you also have items for the Wolf Orphenoch from Kamen Rider Faiz, Ikadevil and Bee ...

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...

Hold onto your Pocky, anime fans. Batman is coming back to the Japanese animation world with an all-new project, descending upon us in 2018. This time, he brings with him a pool of talent that gave us the likes of the animated Afro Samurai as well as the special effects actioner Kamen Rider Fourze. While Batman inches one step closer to his apparent goal of filling every possible screen on every continent at the exact same time, here's a brief rundown of what we know so far. This feature-length anime, titled simply Batman Ninja, is the work of director Mizusaki Junpei, whose talents were brought to several MegaMan X video games before landing a producing gig with the popular JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime. Joining him is Nakashima Kazuki, best known to some of us as a lead writer f...

Night Rogue is locked and loaded, ready to lay the smackdown on his fugitive nemesis, Kamen Rider Build, with these new SH Figuarts toys from the Kamen Rider Build television series. Pose these two lethal enemies in various positions as you force them to fight (or whatever) across the torrid landscape of your desk, or dresser, or wherever else you put them so they can do their thing. Check em out. Tamashii Nations gifted us with this first image of the two new items. It's unspecified at this time when and how Night Rogue's sexy form will be up for sale, but Kamen Rider Build's red-and-blue RabbitTank figure is set for a February 2018 release. Coinciding with the Tenth Anniversary celebration of the prestigious SH Figuarts line, the RabbitTank figure is being offered for 3,456 ye...
Kamen Rider Build Episode 5 Rocks the House

Kamen Rider Build Episode 5 Rocks the House

Five episodes into reviewing this marvelous TV show, and I'm wondering if Kamen Rider Build will even have episodes that don't contribute to the overall plot in some way. So far, every episode has majorly factored into the ongoing expansion of Build's world and the characters within, showing no signs of stopping. Let's dive into the events of Episode 5 and count up our title hero's list of fashion crimes. As if the awesomeness of Build's dueling recaps couldn't get any better, we now have the cafe owner Soichi getting in on the narration game, opting for a slightly longer summation of recent events. My first thought is that, yeah, they actually kind of need this. There are some Kamen Rider shows where the recap feels almost like a waste, because they're not actually reviewing anything...
