It's all come down to this. Power Rangers Unworthy takes us on a trip through the multiverse, taking a slice out of the spandex-clad heroes known as the Power Rangers by way of the Shattered Grid comic book series from BOOM! Studios. In which, the evil Lord Drakkon (a twisted version of original Green Ranger Tommy Oliver) travels to other dimensions to defeat alternate versions of his old Ranger team. But what he didn't count on was the Arbiter. Kamen Ramen Studios presents this action-filled take on the Power Rangers, featuring nods to the franchise in at least three major entertainment mediums, from the TV series, to the recent film, to the comic, while introducing us to an original character who knows them all like the back of his armored hand. https://youtu.be/xJ3-APxaX0Y  ...

Kamen Rider Black RX was a bit of an anomaly in the tokusatsu television landscape. After the success of the previous year's Kamen Rider Black, Toei Company decided that it would break with tradition on their long-running franchise and forego the usual process of creating a brand new series with a new lead hero at its center as usual. Instead, they created a sequel of sorts, bringing Minami Kotaro back into the fray once more. Results were... let's say mixed. But there's no doubting this costumed figure's indelible part of toku history. Not only was RX the last of the Showa Era's television series, but footage was later used for Power Rangers creator Saban's Masked Rider series. And results were mixed all over again! Years later, this infamous series gets a theme song cover from recor...

For years, the Youtube channel Triforcefilms has been pumping out one rendition after another of TV show theme songs, all in the acapella style, performing every aspect of these classic pieces without the use of traditional instruments. This includes some series openers that may prove familiar to us here at Henshin Justice Unlimited. Check em out. First up is the gateway drug for many western fans of the madness that is the tokusatsu action show subgenre, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. https://youtu.be/NR4JlxUTCng Next, we make a Megazord-sized leap several years forward to Power Rangers Dino Thunder.

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_vkVqy4c

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...

Trevor Belmont is back to take on more creatures of the night with his monster-hunting pals in Season 2 of Castlevania. The animated series based upon the popular video game franchise had Netflix subscribers screaming for more when it premiered with a four-episode opener that barely sated their (blood)thirst for the medieval fantasy action that awaited. Now, the sophomore slaughter arrives just in time to get fans into the Halloween spirit. Here's a trailer. https://youtu.be/Kbb8zPQBmOw Trevor Belmont, last survivor of his house, is no longer alone, and he and his misfit comrades race to find a way to save humanity from extinction at the hands of the grief-maddened Dracula and his sinister vampire war council.

Now that the first official trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters is out, fans finally know a little about what lies in store for us in the latest addition to the giant monster movie franchise, and that includes the MonsterVerse debut of beloved daikaiju Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. But one fan decided to do a little remix on the Legendary Pictures trailer, editing the piece to resemble the vibe from classic Toho Studios promos for the old school films, complete with big, animated title cards and voiceover explaining what you're about to see as those unmistakable sound effects ring out. Good times. https://youtu.be/C5VL6WNh2cM Truly, few things in life beat hearing the Japanese word "nani" (what) come from the mouth of Charles "Game of Thrones" Dance. The Michael Doughe...

Everybody's passing out anniversaries this summer. Whether you're a longtime fan of Kamen Rider and hyped for the nostalgic rollercoaster sure to roll out from the latest Kamen Rider Zi-O, or are a fan of their American cousins in live-action, the Power Rangers, it's not the worst time to be someone who can quote whole episodes that aired years ago on command. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Ranger franchise, the current Teenagers with Attitude (or something) and some of their predecessors are meeting up for the sort of adventure that is rather rare these days. At least as far as their television exploits are concerned. We're speaking, naturally, of the special crossover episode of the Nickelodeon and Saban Brands title Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel, which promises to ...

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 ...
