Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where it's the moment you've all being waiting for: The grand return of 'Captain Ghost'! Yes, it's very random, but then again the spectral pirate ship from Kamen Rider Ghost originally existed just to combine with the titular Rider's bike in order to become a giant iguana, so "random" seems pretty par for the course really. This week's episode of Kamen Rider Zi-O continues the show's tribute (?) to Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. Emu's attention is divided between trying to help two people, and it falls to Sougo to take one of them off his hands, and in the process save them both. Did you enjoy this blast to the past? What was your favorite Ex-Aid reference? Which Rider Armour do you prefer so far? Come and tell us in our forum or over on our Facebook pa...

It's that time again. Those lethal mutations with a talent for dismemberment are back for another season, now available in this official streaming release. It's the second chapter of Kamen Rider Amazons. (Or Amazon Riders, if you're feeling international). The reimagined series, loosely based on the classic 1974 title Kamen Rider Amazon, garnered enough success to sweep their fans up with another thirteen episodes of monster-fighting action. Courtesy of the streaming entertainment platform appropriately named Amazon Prime, Season 2 is now available in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. This is the love story between Chihiro, a boy raised by an Amazon, and Iyu, a girl brought back to life with the help of Amazons. It's far more than a mere, heart-warming "boy ...

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where it's time to blow the dust out of the cartridge and load the saved game! With Geiz and Tsukuyomi following in half-hearted disguises, Sougo attempts to find the legendary 'genius gamer' "M" and seek his extreme aid. His search leads him to a hospital where you might remember the doctors having some experience at dealing with game sickness, but with the creation of a new Another Rider time has been changed and they are now unable to help their patients, so it falls to our leads to foil the latest Time Jacker scheme. As we move into our second story, do you think the show is finding its groove? What did you think of the Another Ex-Aid costume? Will the Emu Hojo of this altered timeline prove to be friend or foe? Type your name into our high s...

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where it's nice to be getting back into Rider again following it's one year hiatus after the end of Ex-Ai...huh? "Build"? What do you mean "Build?" What on Earth are you talking about?! Kamen Rider Zi-O, Episode 02 “Best Match 2017” Geiz continues to attack Sougo (Zi-O) but his finishing move is intercepted by Tsukuyomi. Sougo activates a Ride Watch that changes into his bike, and uses it to flee from the area. Geiz summons his own bike and quickly gives chase, but Sougo manages to hide and Geiz continues off down the road and away from him. While Geiz confronts Tsukuyomi for interfering with his assassination, Sougo once again encounters Woz.

What, you expected the last movie to be the final installment just because it contained the word "final" in the title? How little you know this franchise. The heroes of Kamen Rider are back yet again, in this latest crossover blowout film promising to gather up the heroes from several incarnations of the long-running property, across all of the 21st Century Heisei Era. Headlining this bad mamma-jamma is the newest lead hero among them, Kamen Rider Zi-O. The time-traveling wannabe king is about to get a royal crash course in heroing as he combines forces with a greater congregation of past Kamen Riders than even his own show would likely allow. If you can't be the last, at least be the foreverest... or something. Here's the teaser trailer, which is so teasing that it contains seemin...

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where it's time to say goodbye to Kamen Rider Build. Kamen Rider Build, Episode 49 “The World Build Created” Despite the reservations of his inner Katsuragi, Sento (Build) resolves to rescue Ryuga (Cross-Z) from the void between the worlds. Misora initially protests but lets him go. Sento travels into the opening to find himself on a beach, with Ryuga laying face down on the sand. Ryuga's eyes glow red and he attacks Sento, before transforming into Evolt. Evolt declares that he has absorbed Ryuga and intends to do the same to Sento. Sento must beat him and release his internal energy, otherwise the dimensions will not merge correctly and both will be destroyed, though Evolt believes that absorbing Sento will repair his Evolt Trigger and allow him

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where broken helmet scenes will always be cool! This week's episode of Kamen Rider Build brings evens to a head, as the Riders begin their final battle to defeat Evolt and forge a new world while citizens cheer them on. The Lupinrangers face another difficult challenge in Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger  as Umika's father comes to ensure that her birthday celebration consists of more than just eating pudding. Things come to a close for Build next week as the final episode airs. Will they announce a "Returns" special immediately after the episode as they did for the previous two series, or will it be a true finale (well...before Sento and Ryuga appear again in the next series)? It also seems that the Patrangers will get some ex

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where sometimes we have to cover the far extremes of the tokusatsu world at the same time. This week's episode of Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger is going way out into the "fun and campy" end of things, even by Super Sentai standards. Keep your eyes out for the middle aged backing dancer wearing a sparkly silver thong over their leotard. Meanwhile, Kamen Rider Build promised us death before it's one week hiatus and it's going to milk this tragedy for everything it's worth. Farewell Kazumi. You will be missed...assuming that you aren't somehow resurrected for the next crossover movie. Which kind of episode do you enjoy more? Do you like it when they present them both together or would you prefer it if they didn't pair a sad epi...

Kamen Rider Black RX was a bit of an anomaly in the tokusatsu television landscape. After the success of the previous year's Kamen Rider Black, Toei Company decided that it would break with tradition on their long-running franchise and forego the usual process of creating a brand new series with a new lead hero at its center as usual. Instead, they created a sequel of sorts, bringing Minami Kotaro back into the fray once more. Results were... let's say mixed. But there's no doubting this costumed figure's indelible part of toku history. Not only was RX the last of the Showa Era's television series, but footage was later used for Power Rangers creator Saban's Masked Rider series. And results were mixed all over again! Years later, this infamous series gets a theme song cover from recor...
