Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where it's nice to be getting back into Rider again following it's one year hiatus after the end of Ex-Ai...huh? "Build"? What do you mean "Build?" What on Earth are you talking about?! Kamen Rider Zi-O, Episode 02 “Best Match 2017” Geiz continues to attack Sougo (Zi-O) but his finishing move is intercepted by Tsukuyomi. Sougo activates a Ride Watch that changes into his bike, and uses it to flee from the area. Geiz summons his own bike and quickly gives chase, but Sougo manages to hide and Geiz continues off down the road and away from him. While Geiz confronts Tsukuyomi for interfering with his assassination, Sougo once again encounters Woz. He explains that the Time Jackers intend on changing the timeline so that someone else becomes Oma Zi-

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where after many years it is finally time to go on another time trippin' ride! So let's go over time and space in the first episode of the latest Rider series, Kamen Rider Zi-O. How will it compare to its illustrious predecessors? Will it be stronger than before? How many more references can I fit into one intro? Share your first reactions with us in our forum or over on our Facebook page. Kamen Rider Zi-O, Episode 01 “Kingdom” It is the year 2068. On a barren wasteland on the edge of a destroyed town, Oma Zi-O, the evil master of the world, stands in front of a memorial to the first transformation of a young man named Sougo Tokiwa, flanked by effigies of the nineteen Heisei Riders from Kuuga to Build. As he awaits, a ragtag group of armed rebe

What, you expected the last movie to be the final installment just because it contained the word "final" in the title? How little you know this franchise. The heroes of Kamen Rider are back yet again, in this latest crossover blowout film promising to gather up the heroes from several incarnations of the long-running property, across all of the 21st Century Heisei Era. Headlining this bad mamma-jamma is the newest lead hero among them, Kamen Rider Zi-O. The time-traveling wannabe king is about to get a royal crash course in heroing as he combines forces with a greater congregation of past Kamen Riders than even his own show would likely allow. If you can't be the last, at least be the foreverest... or something. Here's the teaser trailer, which is so teasing that it contains seemin...

SUPER HERO SYNOPSES | Kamen Rider Build Final Episode

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where it's time to say goodbye to Kamen Rider Build. Kamen Rider Build, Episode 49 “The World Build Created” Despite the reservations of his inner Katsuragi, Sento (Build) resolves to rescue Ryuga (Cross-Z) from the void between the worlds. Misora initially protests but lets him go. Sento travels into the opening to find himself on a beach, with Ryuga laying face down on the sand. Ryuga's eyes glow red and he attacks Sento, before transforming into Evolt. Evolt declares that he has absorbed Ryuga and intends to do the same to Sento. Sento must beat him and release his internal energy, otherwise the dimensions will not merge correctly and both will be destroyed, though Evolt believes that absorbing Sento will repair his Evolt Trigger and allow him

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where broken helmet scenes will always be cool! This week's episode of Kamen Rider Build brings evens to a head, as the Riders begin their final battle to defeat Evolt and forge a new world while citizens cheer them on. The Lupinrangers face another difficult challenge in Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger  as Umika's father comes to ensure that her birthday celebration consists of more than just eating pudding. Things come to a close for Build next week as the final episode airs. Will they announce a "Returns" special immediately after the episode as they did for the previous two series, or will it be a true finale (well...before Sento and Ryuga appear again in the next series)? It also seems that the Patrangers will get some ex

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where sometimes we have to cover the far extremes of the tokusatsu world at the same time. This week's episode of Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger is going way out into the "fun and campy" end of things, even by Super Sentai standards. Keep your eyes out for the middle aged backing dancer wearing a sparkly silver thong over their leotard. Meanwhile, Kamen Rider Build promised us death before it's one week hiatus and it's going to milk this tragedy for everything it's worth. Farewell Kazumi. You will be missed...assuming that you aren't somehow resurrected for the next crossover movie. Which kind of episode do you enjoy more? Do you like it when they present them both together or would you prefer it if they didn't pair a sad epi...

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...

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...

Welcome back to Super Hero Synopses, where heroes can only survive by working together. It's a lesson that both phantom thieves and global police must reluctantly learn this week in Kaito Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger as Lymon gives the first demonstration as to what the higher ranked, golden safe owning Ganglers can really do. Meanwhile in Kamen Rider Build the main problem every Rider has is always attempting to carry their burdens alone and it seems that the ghosts of Grease's past have come back to haunt him and set up a big cliffhanger. And it is indeed a cliffhanger because there will be no episode of Kamen Rider Build this coming week. It's being bumped for the televised opening ceremony of a nation-wide Japanese high school baseball championship. We will, h
