It's that time again. A new Power Rangers incarnation is on the horizon, and fitting with recent tradition, we're treated to an early trailer of what lies ahead for us in the coming year for this long-running franchise. In keeping with that tradition, of course, this video features no footage of any members of our new super-team, as it debuted at this month's Power Morphicon event so early that no actual scenes had yet been shot with them. What we do have is lots and lots of footage from 2012's Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, the 36th installment in Japan's Super Sentai brand, from which Power Rangers gets much of its action visuals.

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.
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!

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.

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.
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.

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.

20th Century Fox and Robert Rodriguez bring the classic anime and manga title to life in Alita: Battle Angel. The sci-fi tale about an android with killer moves adapts Kishiro Yukito's original Battle Angel Alita, with the use of motion capture CG enhancement for a unique aesthetic in this dystopian actioner.
James Cameron (The Terminator, Avatar) was originally set to helm this project as his personal robotic baby, but when other properties called him away, Rodriguez (Planet Terror, Sin City) stepped up to the plate.
From a script by Laeta Kalogridis of Shutter Island, the film stars Rosa Salazar (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Insurgent), Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds, Spectre), Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Luke Cage), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, A Nightmare on Elm Street...
