The time of monsters is upon us once again, as the kaiju wranglers of the TOKU television station is prepping to deliver another massive bounty to our doorsteps this fine February. Starting and ending with the giant hero adventures of the long-running Ultraman franchise, with the standalone tokusatsu film Outer Man in-between. Three different incarnations of Tsuburaya Productions' famed Ultra Series are launching their official American TV schedules, and we've lost count of how many that makes now. The recent list of titles to premiere in the US, like the silvery protagonists of this ongoing franchise, just keeps growing. First up, we have Ultraman Gaia. This series originally aired in 1998 as the third in the 90s Heisei Era trilogy, though taking place in a new continuity separate fr...

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...

Is this the closest we'll get to a lead actor from the Power Rangers television franchise featuring in Star Wars? If so, I'll take it! The Library Bards have been serenading Youtube with their nerd-centric music videos for the past few years, sending up a number of favorites in the world of geekdom. Now, they present to us their take on two characters in the recent smash hits Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The characters in question being that former Storm Trooper and the ace pilot who named him, Finn and Poe Dameron, played respectively by John Boyega and Oscar Isaac. But some among the Power Rangers fandom will get an extra treat, as the role of Poe is played here by Azim Rizk, who alternated between the Black and Green Ranger (there's a simple explanatio...

Those of you looking to get more of that Dynaman goodness from last month are in for a treat. The 1986 classic parody dub of Japan's Kagaku Sentai Dynaman is back with more episodes to stream from original distributors Night Flight. As previously reported, Dynaman, in all its wacky glory, was one of America's first official glimpses into the world of Super Sentai, years before the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers would take households by storm in the 90s. Originally, the niche streaming service Night Flight Plus had only offered three episodes to watch, but now they've doubled that digit for more color-coded explosions to sate your appetite for tokusatsu's early English-language oddities. Whether one chooses to watch them with an earnest appeal, as an anthropological look at the special e...
