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...

Well, here we are for another Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger review. And while I'm still very much enjoying this spacey super-team series, I have to be honest and say that I'm a little disappointed with one key factor. You guessed it, kids. It starts with "luck" and ends with "eeee" .
The sad thing is that I'm actually not someone who dislikes Lucky, our strange and often shouty de facto leader of this band of galactic liberators. When others complained that he was too in-your-face, I shrugged indifferently, having enjoyed his part in this wacky ensemble of futuristic alien saviors bent on defeating the oppressive Jark Matter organization. Of course, this was back when the show was just getting started, and the new car smell had yet to wear off. Every sight and sound was fresh, and there was ...
In 1983, a group of five heroic inventors united against the evil Jashinka Empire in Kagaku Sentai Dynaman. Three years later, their harrowing adventures were broadcast for American audiences as part of the USA network's Night Flight block. Simply titled Dynaman, this was a parody series capitalizing on the apparent B-movie aesthetic and playing up the silliest aspects of the show. A precursor to 1993's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, this was among the first times Super Sentai would be viewed by American masses, albeit in an altered form. My, how things have changed. But if you want a taste of what it was like for potential tokusatsu fans back in the day, Dynaman is now available to watch online.
Courtesy of Night Flight Plus, the Dynaman dub is viewable now, with three episodes. Curio...

UPDATE: Shout! Factory confirmed earlier this year their official release of Seijuu Sentai Gingaman coming in 2018. The original story follows.
Shout! Factory has been kicking ass and taking names these past few years, putting out one quality release after another from the worlds of Power Rangers, Super Sentai, and other tokusatsu titles. Continuing their trend of releasing each yearly Super Sentai series, beginning from 1992's Kryoryu Sentai Zyuranger (from which Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was adapted), we now have 1998's Seijuu Sentai Gingaman (Power Rangers Lost Galaxy) to add to the growing Sentai pantheon.
At least we think we do.
With no official release date announcement from Shout, we only have the brief Amazon listing for the DVD set to go on. Which means the releas...
Prehistoric pandemonium will ensue when you pick up this latest addition to the Super MiniPla line at Premium Bandai. Available for pre-order this week is King Brachion from the Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger TV series, better known to some as Titanus from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
This special motorized mech can be combined with the Super MiniPla Dragon Caesar (Dragonzord) and Daijyujin (Megazord) to form Ultimate Daijyujin (Ultrazord).
This titanic terror will set you back 12,960 yen and will arrive February 2018.
New York Comic-Con presents a batch of new Power Rangers merchandise to add to your collection, and we'll give you zero guesses about which season they've chosen to showcase the most. Check out this new action figure set as well as a sweet, new Megazord and let's wonder together when we're getting around to some of those other seasons.
To be fair, Bandai has announced a number of special items in recent years ranging across a few different beloved seasons, and the Fighting Spirit set technically encompasses multiple incarnations (all centered around one dude) but none so prevalent as the unstoppable Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Bandai's golden goose, Tommy Oliver. While we appreciate the love, we're also still checking our watches as we wait for more stuff from elsewhere in th...
It's been a while since I could say that I was loving both the current Kamen Rider series and the current Super Sentai at once. More often than not, the recipe is off for one or the other. And while I'm no Spada, I'd say that Uchu Sentai Kyuranger's blend of wacky fantasy and epic drama provides a well-Balanced meal for my tokusatsu soul. Let's catch up on recent events with this show, and wonder what we did to deserve them.
When last we discussed Kyuranger, our terminally red hero Lucky was about to jump into the past to join the time-displaced portion of this ever-growing team of space adventurers, once again proving that even time travel can't keep Red off the screen for more than a few seconds in a row. It's for a good reason, but one can't help but notice how continuously Lucky (...
