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. 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...

Watch Now: Dynaman – The English-Language Dub

Watch Now: Dynaman – The English-Language Dub

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...

UPDATE: Shout! Factory confirmed earlier this year their official release of Seijuu Sentai Gingaman coming in 2018. The original story follows. Shout! Factory has been kicking ass and taking names these past few years, putting out one quality release after another from the worlds of Power Rangers, Super Sentai, and other tokusatsu titles. Continuing their trend of releasing each yearly Super Sentai series, beginning from 1992's Kryoryu Sentai Zyuranger (from which Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was adapted), we now have 1998's Seijuu Sentai Gingaman (Power Rangers Lost Galaxy) to add to the growing Sentai pantheon. At least we think we do. With no official release date announcement from Shout, we only have the brief Amazon listing for the DVD set to go on. Which means the releas...

It's been a while since I could say that I was loving both the current Kamen Rider series and the current Super Sentai at once. More often than not, the recipe is off for one or the other. And while I'm no Spada, I'd say that Uchu Sentai Kyuranger's blend of wacky fantasy and epic drama provides a well-Balanced meal for my tokusatsu soul. Let's catch up on recent events with this show, and wonder what we did to deserve them. When last we discussed Kyuranger, our terminally red hero Lucky was about to jump into the past to join the time-displaced portion of this ever-growing team of space adventurers, once again proving that even time travel can't keep Red off the screen for more than a few seconds in a row. It's for a good reason, but one can't help but notice how continuously Lucky (...
Sentai vs Sentai in 2018?!

Sentai vs Sentai in 2018?!

News, Super Sentai, Toku
In an odd turn of events, Toei Company has filed trademarks for two different names for the next Super Sentai series coming in 2018! The confirmed trademarks state that the teams will be known as Keisatsu Sentai Patoranger, and Kaito Sentai Lupinranger. Now, as the names indicate, the 2018 Super Sentai series may/will feature two teams pit against one another; a team of cops (Patoranger) versus a team of thieves (Lupinranger)! However, this could also just be a similar case to Ninpu Sentai Hurricanger, where the team consisted of two groups, the initial three Hurricangers and the two secondary Gouraigers. It may be too soon to tell what these names really indicate, but interest in the series is quickly building. Once other details are confirmed, updates will follow, so please stay t...
