KAMEN RIDER BUILD Episode 16: It’s Chess, Not Checkers

Well, that was fast. After the high drama of our last episode in this amazing series, I incorrectly assumed it would take us a moment to regroup before leaping straight back into the business with Acting Prime Minister Himuro Gentoku and his twisted bid for power, after being exposed for the treasonous conspirator that he is. I should have known by now: Kamen Rider Build laughs in the face of such flimsy expectations. Your timeline is too slow for them. They know what they want to do and there's no time like the present to execute. Episode 16 begins exactly where episode 15 ended, with Gentoku being hauled off for his considerable crimes against his own Touto government, until our genius amnesiac hero Kiryuu Sento stops him to ask why the former minister was taunting him in their prio...

Well, here we are. At the moment many of us have been waiting several weeks for: When the identity of the new hero of the Kamen Rider Build TV series is finally revealed. Of course, everybody and their momma had already figured it out ages ago, and it's doubtful the show was even trying to keep it a big secret this whole time. But for those of us who have been loving the show so far, and watching the quick but steady growth of Ryuuga as a character, coming into his own as a freedom fighter in this upside-down world our protagonists are living in, it's been something to look forward to. And the moment of truth definitely does not disappoint. Let's dive into the eleventh episode of this stellar series as I continue to wonder if they can possibly sustain this level of quality throughout at ...
Kamen Rider Ryuki’s Matsuda Satoshi Announces Birth of First Child

Kamen Rider Ryuki’s Matsuda Satoshi Announces Birth of First Child

Articles, Blog, Culture, Kamen Rider, Movies & TV, News, Toku, Uncategorized
In 2002, actor Matsuda Satoshi played the tough, brooding warrior Kamen Rider Knight, filling the children of Japan with wonder at his exploits with super-powered friends and foes on Kamen Rider Ryuki. This month, he announced that a child of his own has arrived. Matsuda, who played the prickly, black-clad Akiyama Ren (as well as the voice of his American counterpart in Kamen Rider Dragon Knight), had these thoughts to share on the momentous occasion. I have, Become a Father(* ̄▽ ̄) For me who had grown in a family where "My father was no longer there for my Birthday of One Year Old", this is the most distant feeling that "I will become a Father". Should I say it is because of the Stork (Kounotori) Um? Kouno, Dori?? (It doesn't matter which ever it is!). This small life whi...

The excitement lasts all night long in the new Kamen Rider Climax Fighters video game, ready to Rider Kick its way into English-speaking homes this winter. Featuring superheroes from across the Kamen Rider television franchise battling it out for supremacy on a grand stage (because reasons), to decide once and for all who really starts on a climax. Take a gander at the sick trailer, featuring the dulcet tones of PANDORA and the Kamen Rider Girls, providing the soundtrack to this epic battle royale. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BVUClirzvo Well, they already had my curiosity, but seeing the video open with Kamen Rider Faiz Axel, now they have my attention. Joining him in this fighting game event are Kamen Rider Den-O, Kamen Rider Gaim, Kamen Rider Double, the new Kamen Rider Build, a...
HE-LOW – Ultraman Orb’s Juggler Becomes a Hero

HE-LOW – Ultraman Orb’s Juggler Becomes a Hero

Aoyaki Takaiwa is trading in his deadly sword for a hero's helmet in HE-LOW, the new independent tokusatsu film. After lighting up the screen as the villainous alien warrior Jugglus Juggler in Ultraman Orb and again, just to make certain you remember his name in Ultraman Orb: The Origin Saga, he's taking a decidedly less sinister path in this new flick. HE-LOW is a labor of love for creator and director Takano Hassei, best known to toku fans as Ultraman Agul, from the Ultraman Gaia TV series. Takano and Aoyaki were co-stars in Orb's prequel series, The Origin Saga, where Agul joined a host of other veteran heroes (including a reluctant Juggler) to defend against a universe-ending threat. Kamen Rider fans may know Takano as the cool-as-ice, coin-flipping Kamen Rider Raia from Kamen ...

Can we talk about the new Kamen Rider Build? I have to talk about this. I need to be reassured that I'm seeing what I'm seeing and that it's not going to be taken away from me when they finally realize what they've done and decide it's all a really expensive mistake. This is too much of what I wanted all at once. Who's about to get fired for this magnificence?! The brilliance begins at minute one, with the greatest recap ever committed to film. The braggadocious smarty-pants Kiryuu Sento and his new fugitive pal Banjou Ryuuga have dueling summaries, bantering even as they tell us what happened in last week's premiere episode. I already love these idiots and it's only been like twenty minutes. Please tell me I can keep them, mommy! After the recap, we get our first look at the openi...
