Here's a little something to jam to while waiting for your next fix when it comes to the heroes of the tokusatsu world. From Kamen Rider to Super Sentai to Power Rangers, Youtuber Studio Megaane has been delivering one nostalgic twist after another on the special-effects shows we at Henshin Justice Unlimited hold most dear. Plus quite a few other titles both of the live-action and animated variety.
Studio Megaane creates music tracks in the style of old school 8-bit video games, generating a unique sound not to be duplicated, especially for those of us who fondly remember the days when this was pretty much all you had when mashing buttons and cursing the incredibly difficult games of the era. You haven't known true struggle until you've been felled by your hundredth accidental landing...

I started collecting Power Rangers back in '94, then Super Sentai & Kamen Rider in the early 2000s, and Ultraman just a few ...
I so want to make a Kamen Rider Hibiki joke right now, but nothing comes to mind. Alas.
Suda Masaki's star has risen considerably since his stint as the quirky second part of the half-and-half super-detective in 2009's Kamen Rider W. Leaping from one prestigious role in television and film to another, he's grown more popular than his talent agency deems appropriate for him to return to cameo in the Kamen Rider franchise that many of us know him best from. But as he continues to further branch out in the entertainment world, he gears up to release his new album, including some previously-released tracks as well as new pieces exclusively for this debut album.
Here's Suda singing "Scenery I've Never Seen Before" for a commercial celebrating Japanese national soccer.
Toei Company has begun promoting the next wave in their annual summer movies for the Kamen Rider and Super Sentai franchises, this time for the beloved Kamen Rider Build and for the new Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger.
Kamen Rider Build The Movie and Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keistatsu Sentai Patranger en Filme come to Japanese movie theaters August 4, 2018.

Are we all feeling nostalgic today? Well, too bad, because there's nothing here for you.
Recently, a trailer dropped for the new ReBoot: The Guardian Code, the modern follow-up to the 1990s original ReBoot, in which a group of computer-generated characters live in a video game world where they must battle it out in varied scenarios for the amusement of the players out in the real world. At the time, the 3D animated title could be seen as a forward-thinking series exploring the possibilities of technology and using new visual techniques to bring to life its experimental adventure story. Which is why it puzzles many to find that what we have in this new ReBoot is a derivative, backward-glancing live-action series with CG integration that looks like something we've already seen and forgo...
Happy Friday, Toku Trove readers! We are a few days late with this week's collection (usually posted on Wednesdays!) but we hope that we can help you end your week right with a great collection to admire. Today, we are showcasing Jacob McDannell's rapidly growing Power Rangers collection. Jacob has provided us with some great shots of his collection, and a wonderful story as well.
Remember, if you would like to see your collection featured on Toku Trove, send us pictures, along with a few words, of your stuff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We begin with some words from Jacob about his awesome collection:
The story behind my collection/obsession: I was a 90's kid through and through. After Power Rangers first aired, it was eat, sleep, and breathe Power Rangers. Back then, as a kid, it w...
It's all determined salutes and solemn vows on this episode of Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger. And as we settle into this "cops and robbers" series, it hits me just how much the franchise has begun to change its tune. I think we were onto something when we speculated that, in its own way, the Super Sentai brand has been slowly creeping back to the forward-thinking Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters flavor in the last few years. I recently described the 2012 series as being ahead of its time, with its slick style, its character-centric stories, and a seeming intent to move the show into a new era. They just moved at such a fast clip that some diehards felt left in the dust with the whiplash it gave the fan community. And so, after a couple series that...
Four years after their story was completed, the cast of the dinosaur-themed series Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger comes back for another hurrah, in this completely random, unexpected appearance. Showing up in multiple online videos, including a complete "lost" episode of the series, they're back to show us once again how brave they can be.
The videos are a collaborative promotional effort between RPG video game developers A-Lim and the tokusatsu maestros at Toei Company, as a means of advertising the upcoming Brave Frontier 2.
The mobile game seemingly bears no resemblance to the live-action special effects stylings of Kyoryuger except on the basic level that they both feature heroic figures in outlandish costumes beating the stuffing out of monsters. Also, the word "brave" is said about ...
