Giant bugs with laser-antennae. Bloodthirsty fiends from the depths of outer space. Titanic robots of unparalleled strength. Godzilla has been victorious in battle with dozens of seemingly unbeatable adversaries. But perhaps none as fierce as the latest threat standing before him. The menace of a broken heart. In this stop-motion comedy piece from Youtube channel MootroidXProductions, the radioactive lizard serves up his scorching heart for the object of his affection and a series of misunderstandings may lead to devastating consequences. His first romantic troubles were featured in a video a few years ago, only for the battle to rage on yet again this year, as we approach another Singles Awareness Day. Here's the original 2016 video, followed by its 2018 reboot. Because it's not j...

Ultraman Geed is back. Just a few months after the giant hero series aired its final episode, we return for one last battle with Asakura Riku, the young son of the villainous Belial, as he fights to protect the world he now calls home from the rampage of alien monsters. And here to light a fire under his shiny, silver exterior is none other than Kurenai Gai, the harmonica-playing wanderer best known as the title hero of 2016's Ultraman Orb. Let's do this. https://youtu.be/vioFksgzeY8 Now, as much as I try to get hyped on Geed again, I have to say that it made me laugh a bit to see him quickly reduced to a self-doubting kid again after the events of his own series, apparently leading to Gai stepping in to give him a pep talk about what must be done. Gai is kind of the bigger draw here...

That… That's a Star Trek reference for anybody who, uh… Nevermind. The end of Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger comes with a bittersweet quality as we close out on this space adventure television series. Through 48 episodes, the crew of the Orion have traveled the universe righting the wrongs of the oppressive Jark Matter empire, working to save it from the clutches of the ruthless Don Armage. It's an exciting final chapter. Though I can't help but shake this feeling. That, as I look back on the last leg of the journey, some thoughts probably shouldn't be lingering in my mind. Thoughts like "Well, they did a lot better with this negative thing than that other show." As if failing less obviously than a past disappointment should be counted as a positive rather than just a given. Suffice it to...

You know, I'm sure they exist, but I can't fathom how any fan of the Kamen Rider franchise can watch this series from the beginning up till now and not be swept in by it. Kamen Rider Build is the most consistently excellent series in the franchise in many moons. And, though we predicted how certain events like those found in this gripping episode would play out, even we could not have expected it to strike us like this. It hits like a ton of bricks, then picks up the bricks in a large sack, ready to swing them all back at you a few more times. In this challenging installment, young genius Kiryuu Sento proves hazardous to his enemy's health, and to himself, as he takes an impossible situation in the superpowered war between feuding territories and somehow makes it worse. Who he turns to i...

Grab your hoverboard and activate your self-lacing shoes. A manga adaptation of Back to the Future is on its way to reinvent our history one page at a time. The 1985 Robert Zemeckis classic about a teenager who travels back thirty years and meets his future parents only to potentially ruin the events that lead to his own birth, is being revived in comic form, as only Murata Yuusuke can depict. The manga artist's biggest claim to fame is his highly celebrated series One-Punch Man, which itself has been adapted as an anime title of the same name. News of this first came to us during a press event for the upcoming Ready Player One, directed by Steven Spielberg, who of course was heavily involved with the Back to the Future movie series through his company Amblin Entertainment.
