Who says the big, scary monsters always have to take the L? Special-effects action director Kawasaki Minoru disagrees, and in this comedic flick, he sets about telling the tale of a world obsessed with the fictional television heroism of Outer Man. The superhuman giant battles enormous kaiju to save the world from their uncanny evils to the wonderment of adoring tokusatsu fans everywhere, but then something extraordinary happens. Outer Man, who was only a TV character, suddenly appears in the real world. But instead of protecting mankind, he'd rather be a prick and destroy it. The actors of the Outer Man TV show must band together to fight this new menace or die trying. I guess.
This wacky premise that sees the heroes transform into a monster to stop the Ultraman-esque figure from wre...
Well, the time has finally come. Wave 2 of the Kamen Rider Build SODO figures is here! Much like wave 1, I'm nitpicking at best to find anything negative to say. This time around, we get 7 boxes and 4 figures instead of the prior 6 boxes and 3 figures. The 4 figures are HawkGatling, NinninComic, RocketPanda and our first villain, Night Rogue. Every figure is excellent in detail, articulation and accuracy, once again I find it very, very difficult to say anything negative about these figures, even the price is great. Overall, once again, these are the best Build figures on the market and I can't recommend them enough.

Fists are flying in this episode of Kamen Rider Build. After a slightly weaker entry for the previous week, we come back as strong as ever with another fantastic installment in this series that continues to rock my socks. Build, where have you been all my life?
Returning us to where we left off, Episode 6 begins with Ryuuga continuing to follow Tatsuya, whom he had deliberately re-infected with Smash essence, turning him back into a brainwashed monster. And wouldn't you know it, we've found the bad guys' lair in the sixth freaking episode of this series, continuing Build's trend of taking the rule book and torching it on a pyre of flaming tropes and modern cliches. Good riddance!
After Ryuuga finds himself surrounded, Build comes through with a surprising rescue. Despite getting kn...
Hold onto your Pocky, anime fans. Batman is coming back to the Japanese animation world with an all-new project, descending upon us in 2018. This time, he brings with him a pool of talent that gave us the likes of the animated Afro Samurai as well as the special effects actioner Kamen Rider Fourze. While Batman inches one step closer to his apparent goal of filling every possible screen on every continent at the exact same time, here's a brief rundown of what we know so far.
This feature-length anime, titled simply Batman Ninja, is the work of director Mizusaki Junpei, whose talents were brought to several MegaMan X video games before landing a producing gig with the popular JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime.
Joining him is Nakashima Kazuki, best known to some of us as a lead writer f...
A trademark filing found by members of the community suggests that the Super Sentai for 2015 has been named, and it's apparently based on a theme that hasn't been seen often in Sentai. Hit the jump for more, but please treat this as rumor until an official announcement is made. (more…)
