Those of you looking to get more of that Dynaman goodness from last month are in for a treat. The 1986 classic parody dub of Japan's Kagaku Sentai Dynaman is back with more episodes to stream from original distributors Night Flight. As previously reported, Dynaman, in all its wacky glory, was one of America's first official glimpses into the world of Super Sentai, years before the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers would take households by storm in the 90s. Originally, the niche streaming service Night Flight Plus had only offered three episodes to watch, but now they've doubled that digit for more color-coded explosions to sate your appetite for tokusatsu's early English-language oddities.
Whether one chooses to watch them with an earnest appeal, as an anthropological look at the special e...
Here's what's happening on the next episodes of Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger and Kamen Rider Build.
Kyuranger Space 38: Flaming Spheres! The 9 Crisis Strike!

The Kyuranger's aim to gather enough Kyu-Energy to smash through the barrier protecting Jark Matter's Homeworld, Planet Southern Cross. The team is divided into 2 once again, and go on a search for the Perseus and Cepheus Kyu-Energies. However, there is one member who is starting to feel left out. That is their Commander Shou Ronpou. Since Tsurugi's exceptional leadership, Shou feels that his role as their Comman...
Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger's DX toy line has been pretty hit-and-miss as a whole, but it ends really strong with Kojishi Voyager, aka Caesar. Caesar is a small chibi-like lion toy, similar to Mini-Tyra from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, but instead of combining with a weapon, he combines with a fellow Voyager mech.
On its own, I like this little guy, but the real fun begins when you add Shishi Voyager to the mix. Combining the two Voyagers together makes Super Shishi Voyager, my favorite form. This is an amazing form, changing the look of Shishi Voyager from a spaceship with a lion head into a full-fledged lion mecha. The size and silhouette of this thing is great, though I can see fans being bummed out by the lack of articulation. Overall, I think, combined, this is the best Voyager of the wh...
The Power Rangers are no strangers to the world of villainy, each week facing off against a fresh adversary with dark intentions, typically under the direction of a sinister overlord with a master plan just waiting to be foiled by those pesky, multi-colored younglings in spandex. As Halloween has now come upon us, what better time to talk about monsters than on the week we'll likely have seen more of them than any other? We're here to talk about bad guys. Ranking the best (or worst, if you prefer) enemies our costumed heroes have encountered in their decades-spanning adventures.
And for the purposes of this handy list, we'll define "best" in general terms. We're not necessarily talking about who's the strongest physically or who can rack up the most experience points against their sup...
Here's what's happening on the next episode of Ultraman Geed, Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger, and Kamen Rider Build.

Ultraman Zero will fight to protect the city from the threat of Dada's rampage! Before, Fukuide Kei was always shrouded in an alluring aura of dangerous mystery, but now he isn't as strong as he was before. A woman named Arie tries to ask him several questions, but Kei won't remember a thing. Just when the battle between Zero and Dada reaches it's highest point, Dada suddenly target's Kei!
Well, here we are for another Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger review. And while I'm still very much enjoying this spacey super-team series, I have to be honest and say that I'm a little disappointed with one key factor. You guessed it, kids. It starts with "luck" and ends with "eeee" .
The sad thing is that I'm actually not someone who dislikes Lucky, our strange and often shouty de facto leader of this band of galactic liberators. When others complained that he was too in-your-face, I shrugged indifferently, having enjoyed his part in this wacky ensemble of futuristic alien saviors bent on defeating the oppressive Jark Matter organization. Of course, this was back when the show was just getting started, and the new car smell had yet to wear off. Every sight and sound was fresh, and there was ...
Here's what's happening on the next episode of Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger, Space 36: The Legend That Sleeps Within Lucky's Homeworld.
"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...

In 1983, a group of five heroic inventors united against the evil Jashinka Empire in Kagaku Sentai Dynaman. Three years later, their harrowing adventures were broadcast for American audiences as part of the USA network's Night Flight block. Simply titled Dynaman, this was a parody series capitalizing on the apparent B-movie aesthetic and playing up the silliest aspects of the show. A precursor to 1993's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, this was among the first times Super Sentai would be viewed by American masses, albeit in an altered form. My, how things have changed. But if you want a taste of what it was like for potential tokusatsu fans back in the day, Dynaman is now available to watch online.
Courtesy of Night Flight Plus, the Dynaman dub is viewable now, with three episodes. Curio...
