Watch Now: Dynaman – The English-Language Dub

Watch Now: Dynaman – The English-Language Dub

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...

Ultraman Geed Goes A Little Mad In The New ‘Mob Psycho 100’

Prepare to free your mind, as the popular Mob Psycho 100 manga is now being adapted to live-action. Courtesy of ONE, of One-Punch Man fame, the original web-comic series has already taken the anime world by storm, and now, with help from some friends in the explosive worlds of Ultraman, Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, and more, the property is set to make its live-action debut on Netflix. In the lead role, as psychic middle schooler Mob, is Tatsuomi Hamada, best known to some as Riku, the title hero of Ultraman Geed. It may come as no surprise that Hamada was chosen for the part, considering both Geed and Mob Psycho share the same series director in Koichi Sakamoto, whose street cred stretches far and wide in the live-action special effects genre, from Power Rangers and Super Sentai to ...

‘Kamen Rider W: Fuuto Detectives’ Knows Which Way The Wind Blows

Articles, Blog, Books, Comics, Culture, Kamen Rider, Movies & TV, Reviews, Toku, toku, tokublogs, Uncategorized
In the summer of 2010, tokusatsu fans said goodbye to the lovable heroes of the Narumi Detective Agency, and the many wacky denizens of Fuuto City, when Kamen Rider W came to an end. Of course, several appearances occurred after that, but the loss of this pulpy action-noir world in regular doses was perhaps felt more strongly for some than with most other titles in the Kamen Rider pantheon. While the tradition of a new Kamen Rider taking up the spotlight from the old with each passing year continued to be observed, introducing us to many wondrous new facets of this crazy franchise, there was always a special place in my heart for the two-in-one detectives, Shotaro and Phillip, and their quest to rid the city of dangerous contraband known as Gaia Memories. It's with this thought in min...

Brave Storm – Because Kamen Riders Still Gotta Eat

Here's a thing. In a grim future, where humanity is at the edge of extinction (because what other futures are there, really?), five brothers set about changing their unenviable fate and a giant robot is born from the ashes of their effort. Thus is the plot of Brave Storm, the reimagined tokusatsu film that merges the mythologies of two special effects drama series, Silver Kamen and Super Robot Red Baron. Still with me? Because I have names and titles, some of which may be of interest to fans of the Kamen Rider and Ultraman franchises. This movie has some deep cuts in the world of toku. Leading the cast is a notable line-up of tokusatsu actors, including Watanabe Shu (Eiji, Kamen Rider OOO) and Yamamoto Chihiro (Laiha, Ultraman Geed). Watanabe is seen in the trailer piloting what looks...
Shout! Factory Releasing Seijuu Sentai Gingaman? [UPDATE]

Shout! Factory Releasing Seijuu Sentai Gingaman? [UPDATE]

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...

Let the rubber bodies hit the floor, with this sickass trailer for the all-new Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders. This winter Kamen Rider film brings together a host of legends from the franchise's recent history, including Kamen Rider Build, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, Kamen Rider Gaim, Kamen Rider Fourze, and more. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1CbwR8RMzg Now, I know this is a movie, but I didn't expect this trailer to make it look so much like a movie! There's a highly cinematic quality to the editing style chosen for this presentation that I am completely okay with. Of course, we know that it's still going to be the usual "really expensive TV episode" flavor that pervades the whole event in actuality, but I love the degree of serious prestig...
