Swooping in for another pass, Garo: Red Requiem is here to provide more monster-hunting action to the new year, with this movie adventure from the Garo television franchise. Sentai Filmworks has been taking names with these domestic Blu-ray releases, as it seems western fans can't get enough of Kouga and his crew of demon-slaying allies among the fabled Makai Knights. It was only October when we reported on their last home media title, Garo - Kiba: The Dark Knight. Kraken Releasings' official synopsis sets the stage for their latest: In the ancient war against the monstrous creatures known as Horrors, many Makai Priestesses have fought and died in battle, yet no woman has ever been chosen to wear the mystic armor of the Makai Knights. Kouga, the current bearer of the gold wolf armor ...

The next cast in line to join the swelling ranks of the Super Sentai franchise makes up not one super-team, but two. Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patoranger makes history by pitting two equally important groups of superpowered heroes against each other in a co-headlining battle royale. The first official poster is here, and with it comes a brief synopsis of the coming events. Right off the bat, the logo containing the names of both teams looks like that of a "versus movie", as previously mentioned. Observed separately, the two halves don't even look like they belong to the same series. A simple, but effective way to illustrate the differences between the two groups, despite some of their implied similarities. One such similarity can be noted quite easily, with a gla...

Update: A new image has revealed the suits and weapons of the teams, found at the end of our original post below. It's a new day for fans of the long-running Super Sentai franchise, as word trickles slowly down the superpowered pike that those lovable, multi-colored hero teams are getting a makeover for their 42nd entry into the television saga. I thought the star-spanning quest of 2017's Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger was an interesting departure, with its enormous team of twelve protagonists fighting to save a future universe from an oppressive empire, but it seems Toei Company and TV Asahi are doubling down on that idea and giving us a story with not one, but two teams in a single series. Not only that, but these teams are being set against each other as enemies and rivals. The official ti...

Wedding bells are ringing this season as two actors from the long-running Super Sentai television franchise have just announced that they've tied the knot. In 2012's Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger, Wada Masato played the lead hero Akagi Nobuo aka Akiba Red in his late night parody series. In the very same year, Yoshiki Risa was holding it down for the mainstream series Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters as Sakurada Rika, big sister of Sakurada Hiromu, Red Buster himself. Suffice it to say, there's a lot of red in this new super-family. The announcement came on November 22, 2017 with a photo of the happy couple. Truly, the fulfillment of a dream for the diehard Super Sentai fanboy, Nobuo. We wish Wada and Yoshiki all the best.   You might also like: Talk About Lucky! (That’s an Ord...

I was determined not to come back with another Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger review that talked predominately about lead character Lucky, but it seems my fate was written in the constellations. This show, about a team of futuristic space trekkers boldly going up against the Jark Matter Empire, quickly became a new favorite for me, winning me over with its adventurous theme, great characters, and fun ideas. To this day, my feelings in that regard have not changed. Though I suppose I've squished those sentiments into a tiny side pocket now that the show has so aggressively pursued one of Super Sentai's worst habits: Putting an inordinate amount of attention onto the dude in red. The luckiest liberator in the whole wide universe is not only the unofficially official leader of this enormous team...
