The Kamen Rider franchise is getting even more generational with the latest in their series of movies based on the ongoing action hero franchise, Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER. And here's the poster to prove it. As previously mentioned, they keep trying to end this Heisei Era, but something's always standing in the way. A gaggle of heroes from recent (and not-so-recent) years in the Rider saga are returning for one last (lol) battle to save the world from evil. A new poster has been unveiled, to give you a taste of the combat to come. Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER hits theaters December 22, 2018.   You might also like: This New POWER RANGERS Cereal Wants in Your Mouth Toy Review: KAMEN RIDER ZI-O DX Faiz, Hibiki, Kabuto, Den-O Ride Watches, Faiz Phone...

Pudgy Pig's not the only one with the munchies. At least that's what the people at Funko are hoping as they unveil their new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers breakfast cereal. Popularized by their collectible toy line of Funko Pop figures, which the Power Rangers franchise has been selling items through like hotcakes, the company is branching out even further by offering actual foodstuff, so you can rot your teeth as well as your brains! No one saw this coming, but their first foray into Ranger food is modeled after the original Red Ranger (gasp)! They're red loops, so I'm going to assume that it's a subtle commentary on the cyclical nature of the franchise and its marketing to the masses, because they're deep like that. I mean, why else would you pick such an unusual shape that no one ha...

GODZILLA vs Expectations: The Anime Trilogy Roars to a Close

Godzilla: Planet Eater, the third and final film in the animated experiment that is Toho's giant monster trilogy is nearly here. And its first imagery insists that we'll get some action with one of the atomic lizard's most fearsome foes, the great King Ghidorah. But it wouldn't be the G-trilogy without some unique spin on the classics, so we'll not be going in expecting the same three-headed space dragon we've known for decades. The anime three-parter's first installment stomped across Japanese cinema screens and international streaming monitors to a mixed array of reactions, ranging from "I loved it", hailing Godzilla: Planet of Monsters as a fresh visionary take, to "I hate it", dismissing it as a failure in concept and execution, and a whole gamut of emotions somewhere between the ...

... Okay, maybe that title was a little over-the-top, but I just couldn't help myself. Part of me has dreaded tackling this review. As a longtime fan of the Power Rangers franchise, it's not always easy to bring tough criticism to this thing I've loved for years, a huge influence on my life and how I see the world. It's even worse knowing that a number of people may have hoped to hear something quite different from me on this subject, and would be waiting to get my take on such a momentous occasion as this, the 25th Anniversary special episode. Certainly, it'll be an unpopular opinion with some, a few of which I'd count as friends. It's worse even still when one takes into account my opinion of the current season, Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel. The brutal truth is that I hesitate...

Greetings and Salutations, HJU readers! It is I, Bookish Delight, here once again to spotlight video games that, as a toku fan, you should totally have on your radar! For undoubtedly at least a few of you reading this, today’s featured series needs no introduction. However, if this holds true for you, then consider yourself part of an elite club, because—especially in Western territories—this series is about as obscure as you can get. Which is both a shame and an oddity, as it took Japan by storm for a decade and a half, and is still going strong even today, with a recently announced comeback title in the works. This series is Sakura Taisen, and even now, years past its heyday, it's kind of a big deal.   Where The Sun Rises https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVI_vkVq...

How many time puns can one blogger cram into the span of a few weeks? Guess we'll find out, as the pink carpet gets rolled out for the newest hero in the ongoing Kamen Rider super-saga from Toei Company. Kamen Rider Zi-O is time-slipping his way up and down the last twenty seasons of this illustrious franchise, mixing it up with the heroes and villains of Japan's Heisei Era, and god help you if you didn't pack a fire extinguisher. As previously mentioned, Zi-O is the 20th official Heisei Rider series, and they're pulling out all the stops on this nostalgic extravaganza, sure to bring back fond memories (and other stuff maybe) from the show's lengthy history. Naturally, the star of the show is young enough that he was only alive to know some of these guys and basically nothing of the s...

It's that time again. The 20th entry in the Heisei Era's official Kamen Rider television series franchise is quickly approaching, and ahead of it comes a flood of new images and bits of information from which to glean early opinions. And as we feast our eyes on the new Kamen Rider Zi-O, we wonder what the future may hold for this enduring brand. And the future is very much on the minds of the show's creative forces, as the new series lead will be a time traveler, utilizing powers inspired by the heroes who came before him in the Heisei Era, which comes to an end with this incoming project. As the clock imagery in the title logo implies, this is a watch-themed hero, who changes forms based on the timepieces inserted into his henshin belt, accessing various transformations that will ...

The fire-breathing lord of lizards is back in live-action form with Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the Legendary Pictures production due out next year, and here's a couple pictures from the film to prove it. While the unstoppable kaiju continues his rampage across multiple entertainment platforms at once, including Toho Studios' ongoing animated trilogy, the Legendary sequel to the 2014 franchise-starter is revving up to take the planet by storm, literally. That first film kicked off not only the current western film series for Godzilla, but also a larger continuity known as the MonsterVerse, featuring the likes of King Kong and a number of other classic creatures, paving the way for 2017's Kong: Skull Island, and the next link in the chain following King of the Monsters, Godzilla vs...

It's time once again for another delicious offering from Kamen Rider the Diner. As we've featured several times in the past here at Henshin Justice Unlimited, this fine establishment has been serving up an explosive, ever-evolving menu based on the heroes and villains of Toei Company's Kamen Rider television series for years now. This time, they're focusing on a personal favorite mine, with 2003's Kamen Rider Faiz (aka Kamen Rider 555, because words are fun). Last time we discussed it, The Diner was taking us on a feels trip with a series overseen by the same writer, with 2008's Kamen Rider Kiva. The newly-refreshed menu includes items inspired by characters both of the Faiz television series and the movie Kamen Rider Faiz: Paradise Lost, the story set within a universe alternate to t...

Well, here's a twist. One place where you're almost sure not to find any patented daddy issues in the tokusatsu subgenre this year is the upcoming Hero Mama League, a wholly unexpected crossover event that gathers three heroines from Super Sentai television history, for a story about these superpowered ladies balancing their lives as world-saving badasses and the everyday challenges of being a mother. Yeah. This is happening. It comes to us via the Toei Tokusatsu Fan Club app, complimenting Toei Company's recent efforts to keep the spirit alive for the countless heroes running around their seemingly limitless multiverse of demons, aliens, and super-ninjas, righting wrongs long after their original shows leave the airwaves. As we gear up for the next entry into the new ongoing Space Sq...
