HurricaneYellow isn't out of the monster-fighting biz just yet. Actor Yamamoto Kohei, known to many Super Sentai fanatics as super-ninja Bito Kota on Ninpu Sentai Hurricanger, is hard at work on a new project for Toei Company. The developing TV series will feature a new hero not affiliated with the likes of Toei's usual suspects from the long-running Kamen Rider and Super Sentai franchises.
Kaiju Ward Gallas, as the name implies, is a kaiju show, with giant monsters as a centerpiece. Not a first for Toei, but after years of focusing heavily on their Big Two, this comes as somewhat of a surprise. Kaiju action is more Tsuburaya Productions' thing. With their ongoing Ultraman franchise, they've defined the look and feel of giant monster action on the small screen for decades now. Elsewhe...

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.
Truly, few things in life beat hearing the Japanese word "nani" (what) come from the mouth of Charles "Game of Thrones" Dance.

Who doesn't love Comic-Con, huh? The stars are all alight, ready to spread some much-needed shine on (almost) all our favorite geek properties, soon to be set before us in the coming years as we wait with baited breath. One highly-anticipated offering is the newest entry in Legendary Pictures' MonsterVerse, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Director Michael Dougherty's creature feature promises more kaiju chaos than you can shake a spiked tail at, as we've invited a few other classic Toho Studios monsters along for this party, all featured in the first trailer.
The monsterfest started a little early when a little diddy appeared on the interwebs days earlier. A clip featuring actress Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) looking distraught AF as she tries to find help, after what was no d...
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...

Giant bugs with laser-antennae. Bloodthirsty fiends from the depths of outer space. Titanic robots of unparalleled strength. Godzilla has been victorious in battle with dozens of seemingly unbeatable adversaries. But perhaps none as fierce as the latest threat standing before him. The menace of a broken heart.
In this stop-motion comedy piece from Youtube channel MootroidXProductions, the radioactive lizard serves up his scorching heart for the object of his affection and a series of misunderstandings may lead to devastating consequences. His first romantic troubles were featured in a video a few years ago, only for the battle to rage on yet again this year, as we approach another Singles Awareness Day.
Here's the original 2016 video, followed by its 2018 reboot. Because it's not j...
The time of monsters is upon us once again, as the kaiju wranglers of the TOKU television station is prepping to deliver another massive bounty to our doorsteps this fine February. Starting and ending with the giant hero adventures of the long-running Ultraman franchise, with the standalone tokusatsu film Outer Man in-between. Three different incarnations of Tsuburaya Productions' famed Ultra Series are launching their official American TV schedules, and we've lost count of how many that makes now. The recent list of titles to premiere in the US, like the silvery protagonists of this ongoing franchise, just keeps growing.
First up, we have Ultraman Gaia. This series originally aired in 1998 as the third in the 90s Heisei Era trilogy, though taking place in a new continuity separate fr...
Earth of the future has seen better days, as the giant lizard Godzilla has been having his way with the planet for thousands of years while the humans who abandoned it have tried and mostly failed to colonize other, less hellish planets than the one they once called home. This is the premise as we step into Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, the first of an interlocking three-part film story about the atomic beasty and his reign over an apocalyptic world. In Toho Studios' six-decade history with the giant monster and his scaly friends, we've never seen his towering form rendered with animation in a feature before. As a longtime kaiju fan, from witnessing his first terrifying rampage across Tokyo in 1954's Gojira to Legendary's recent Hollywood offering, 2014's Godzilla, I looked forward t...
It's a new day for kaiju fans. The giant lizard Godzilla is enjoying his biggest time in the sun in years as there are several separate titles with his character and related mythology all actively building toward release, both from Japanese studio and primary rightsholder Toho Studios as well as from the US moviemakers at Legendary Pictures. It's a great time to be alive for anyone with an affinity for giant monsters and the humans who flee in terror from them. Unto that breach, word has come down that Toho will now officially co-finance international film productions with their properties, including animated vehicles like Pokemon, live-action adaptations of anime triumphs like your name, and of course, the King of Monsters himself.
Nikkei reports on the three-year deal, which sees To...
