If the world is in peril from attacking monsters of the giant variety, don't fret. I know a Gai. As previously reported, the Ultraman Geed television series is fast coming to an end, and to fill the void between seasons in this ongoing franchise, the powers that be have seen fit to return to us a recent favorite here at Henshin Justice Unlimited. It's Kurenai Gai, the star of 2016's Ultraman Orb, here to reminisce about all the good (and not-so-good) times he had as the mysterious, harmonica-playing drifter, battling all manner of otherworldly beast to save the innocents of the universe. One who is well-versed in Orb's adventures will recognize glimpses from his blitz through the multi-platform realm of live-action entertainment. From his mainstream TV season, to his theatrically-r...

Gridman: The Hyper Agent is back in more ways than one. Tsuburaya Productions' digital monster-fighting superhero was announced to get his own time slot on American television, then an even bigger surprise was sprung on us- SSSS.GRIDMAN, the new anime reimagining of the original Gridman was coming in the fall of 2018. Now, an official promotional video has dropped for the Hyper Agent Blu-ray, now presenting as a prelude to the upcoming animated take. Gridman served as the source material for the US adaptation, Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad, in which a group of high school kids faced Mega-Virus monsters in a digital battlefield to protect the world from electronic peril. If you were a youngling in the early 90s, you might find one or two nostalgic moments in this brief reminder. Parti...

There'll be plenty of holiday cheer in the M-78 Nebula as Ultraman Taro, the sixth in the long-lasting Ultra Series, makes its way to Blu-ray this season. Relive all the classic monster-fighting action, or experience it for the first time, as Higashi Kotaro joins the cosmic Ultra Brothers in their neverending battle to protect the innocent from the vile menace of giant monsters plaguing the Earth. The 1973 series was the tenth anniversary work of Tsuburaya Productions, hoping to bring back a lighter touch to the Ultra canon after a somewhat dark tone had been taken with the previous title, Ultraman Ace. Sadly, this proved only to chase away adult viewers of the time, leading to the decidedly more mature Ultraman Leo the following year. Taro serves as a fascinating artifact of the era ...

After a short break from the high drama discussed in our last review, the Ultraman Geed series picks right back up for the final leg of its sprint toward the finish line. And with only four episodes left to make it happen, this show is pulling out all the stops, laying one side of the story to bed while digging up others from a restless tomb. It's daddy issues galore in episodes 22 and 23! We begin as the opportunistic writer Ishikari Aire arrives at her secluded home at night and senses she's being watched. Out of nowhere, the villainous Fukuide Kei is upon her, as creepy as he's ever looked, just standing there motionless, as if he's been waiting in that spot the whole time. It's a bit alarming, since she helped the poor alien through his hobo phase after Big Daddy Belial was killed...

Ah, hell. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry decided to drop trailers for their mega-blockbuster these past two weeks. Must be another Star Wars December. This time, it's Ernest Cline's heavyweight pop culture champion Ready Player One, the bestselling book given life via the man who helped generate a large part of the very fan fervor his sci-fi adventure sought to invoke - famed director Steven Spielberg. And with this second extended look at the film, we have a ton of new iconic characters, images, and music cues to add to the growing pile that has nerds of all ages adjusting in their seats. Among these totemic titans is the anime super-robot tearing up the skies in a battle for the Oasis. No, it's not Voltron, like so many have misidentified him as. And no, it's not the Iron Giant, though he ...

Here's a new promotional video for Pacific Rim: Uprising, the sequel to the original post-apocalyptic monster movie where humanity must fight off extinction with the enormous war machines known as Jaegers. John Boyega of Star Wars: The Last Jedi leads the cast of world-saving pilots, but one actor that was curiously left out of much of the movie's footage shown so far was Rinko Kikuchi, whose integral character had been a welcome presence in the first Pacific Rim and whose absence was sorely felt by this viewer when the sequel began rolling out promo for its 2018 release. Right off the bat, director Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel's Daredevil series), who takes the reigns from creative maestro Guillermo Del Toro (The Shape of Water) for this entry, namechecks some of the godfathers of toku...

The monster menagerie at Tsuburaya Productions is on a roll this season, delivering one surprising announcement after another to the enraptured heart-eyed fans of their action/adventure titles. We got a tease for the new Ultraman anime coming in 2019, based upon the current manga series of the same name. We're shaking and crying as we wait to get our hands on the new Redman comic, reviving the old school hero in a new medium. Both of these announcements surrounding the good news that Tsuburaya scored a major victory in its extensive legal battle over the international rights to some of their most beloved material. But wait, there's more! After rolling out a sweet Blu-ray release for their live-action special effects series Gridman: The Hyper Agent, they've at last released a brief tea...
