New posters for this winter's Kamen Rider mega-crossover event, Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders, have surfaced, and we've got our microscopes handy for some good old-fashioned speculation about what these images could mean for the landmark film. As the headlining Kamen Rider Build takes center stage as the final Rider series of this decades-long franchise to air during Japan's Heisei Era, this can be seen as the closing chapter of an epic saga. At least until next year, where we inevitably start all over again. First, the beautious new posters for the film, featuring the star-studded cast of superheroic figures of past and present, among which are a few actors that many Rider fans never believed they'd see again. Oh yes. From left to r...

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 ...

Green Ranger Michael Taber Opens Up About Controversial Tweet

At this year's recent Sac-Anime convention, actor Michael Taber elaborated on a story that began in early August, when a message was posted to Twitter concerning his time as part of the cast of Power Rangers Dino Charge. The 2015 incarnation of the popular Power Rangers franchise saw a new group of young adults brought from the US to film in bucolic New Zealand - a dream come true, many aspiring actors might tell you. But, according to Taber's unexpected social media outburst, the scenery was not always reflective of the experience. Far from the first time an actor from the long-running action/adventure series has expressed discontent after the lights came down, the Power Rangers brand has experienced minor controversies since its early stages. Talent leaving the project under uncerta...

In 2002, actor Matsuda Satoshi played the tough, brooding warrior Kamen Rider Knight, filling the children of Japan with wonder at his exploits with super-powered friends and foes on Kamen Rider Ryuki. This month, he announced that a child of his own has arrived. Matsuda, who played the prickly, black-clad Akiyama Ren (as well as the voice of his American counterpart in Kamen Rider Dragon Knight), had these thoughts to share on the momentous occasion. I have, Become a Father(* ̄▽ ̄) For me who had grown in a family where "My father was no longer there for my Birthday of One Year Old", this is the most distant feeling that "I will become a Father". Should I say it is because of the Stork (Kounotori) Um? Kouno, Dori?? (It doesn't matter which ever it is!). This small life whi...

Note to China’s ‘Fake Ultraman’ Creators – Don’t Piss Off the Originals

A loud thunderclap rang out in the Ultraman fandom when it was announced that Dragon Force: So Long, Ultraman, the sequel to China's animated Dragon Force movie, would feature their own interpretation of the classic red-and-silver giant hero Ultraman, owned by Japan's Tsuburaya Productions. Not only that, but this character, whose use of the Ultraman name is highly discouraged by its Japanese owners, was portrayed as a villain in the film's promotional material. Embroiled in legal battles for years over the rights to their original intellectual property, Tsuburaya has had its hands full. But they're not the only ones upset over this development. It seems even the Ultraman actors themselves have begun adding their voices to the chorus speaking out against this project. Actor and musici...
