Another day, another crossover event in the land of cool guys who rarely look at explosions as their enemies pun all the way to fiery doom. This time, it's Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger who steps up to bat. The series about a crew of space-faring heroes fighting against the unscrupulous Jark Matter only recently ended its year-long run on television, but that's not stopping them from tearing it up with the best of them in the seemingly unending cycle of Toei Company's team-up extravaganzas. Interestingly enough, some members on this particular team already have some experience with their latest companions in intergalactic day-saving. It's Space Sheriff Gavan! And he's bringing his disparate team of tokusatsu randoms from the newly-created Space Squad along for the party, in the new Uchuu Sentai...
ULTRAMAN Rights Challenged Once Again, Tsuburaya Productions Back in Court

ULTRAMAN Rights Challenged Once Again, Tsuburaya Productions Back in Court

Don't test Tsuburaya Productions. The company that brought us the original giant hero Ultraman and some hundreds of hours of action with many entries in the ongoing Ultra Series that followed does not take kindly to people messing with their brand. And so, the long story of their battle over the international licensing rights to the Ultraman property gets another chapter, as Chinese company BlueArc is sued once more for what Tsuburaya calls an infringement of their copyright. Tales of Tsuburaya's cockroach-like legal troubles with entities like BlueArc and synonymous groups UM Corporation and Chaiyo Productions are well-documented, but the gist is that rights over the fan-favorite Ultra brand have been contested for decades, even since a claim was made that broad licensing powers were...

If you're one of the five people left that doesn't yet know the greatness that is Black Panther, Marvel Studios' latest entry in their indomitable Cinematic Universe, don't worry. Even the original Kamen Rider gives it his stamp of approval. Game respects game, apparently. The first of a long legacy of superheroes in the Land of the Rising Sun, actor and martial artist Fujioka Hiroshi battled the forces of evil in 1971 as the avenging cyborg hero Kamen Rider Ichigo, and once he had made Japan safe from villainous hands (for a while anyway) he set out on a quest to free the rest of the world from the tightening grip of super-terrorism. Which brings him, seemingly, on his quest to find the mysterious land of Wakanda. No foolin! Fujioka actually states that he went on a quest to find Black ...

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...

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. Any avid S...

In case word hasn't traveled to your neck of the interwebs just yet, there's somehow a Detective Pikachu movie getting made. What's more amazing is that this flick, based on the popular video game and anime series Pokemon, in which "pocket monsters" battle it out for sport, is starring Ryan Reynolds. As Pikachu. The cartoon rodent-looking thing that generally doesn't say anything but repetitive variations on the syllables of his own name. Even after weeks of information slowly dripping out of the tap on this production, we're still asking if there's any way this could be a really expensive mix-up. Are we getting punk'd? Is getting punk'd still a thing? This question and many others need answering as we countdown to the release on this alleged movie. Ryan Reynolds has been acting his p...

Is it Morphin Time for the Upcoming STAR WARS?

A fun bit of trivia for fans of the Power Rangers and Star Wars action/adventure franchises today. It seems the next in line on the ever-driving train that is the Star Wars saga will have a unique title in international waters that may be of interest to those of us who enjoy the exploits of multi-colored heroes in spandex. Star Wars has never been big in China. While the original film trilogy was launched to overwhelming enthusiasm shortly after its 1970s inception, with a fervor that only seems to keep growing across the long decades as more and more material is released to add to this immense tapestry of stories, the movies never quite caught on with our neighbors. Many Star Wars features never even played in theaters there in wide release until well into the 2000s, in fact. So, whe...
