Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 24 Review

The main threat this episode, that the non-red, non-pink, and non-chef members of the Kyurangers were trapped inside a monster’s stomach having their blood slowly drained was pretty damn dark for Super Sentai. At least we had Balance there, once again forgetting the differences between robots and humans, to lighten the situation up a bit. In fact there was quite a lot of blood this week considering Tsurugi’s wounds were the main way to visualise his new mortality. If nothing else I suppose it raised the stakes and made itRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 23 Review

It was a pleasant surprise to have Eris back this episode considering most if not all of the good characters in this series are rangers. Even the mentor and characters who would normally be sidekicks or assistants, like Kotaro and Raptor, have their own suits, so it’s nice to have at least one helpful recurring character outside of the main circle. It was also just a good way to give everyone something to do, something that’ll become a lot harder now that we’ve reached a grand total of 12 rangers.Read More

Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 22 Review

Last episode was the debut of HououSoldier in battle but this episode was the real debut of the man inside the suit. We finally got to learn more about the character himself and, like most members of the Kyuranger cast, I could see him becoming a favourite of mine. His backstory about being the first person to travel beyond the moon 300 years ago not only gives us a rough idea of where abouts in history Kyuranger is supposed to take place but it gives him something unique to makeRead More

Tokusatsu in Review: W Returns Kamen Rider Accel And Eternal

TRIAL! Keiichi hasegawa Gives the Terui’s a final focused story…that’s pretty superfluous considering they already completed their character arcs. ETERNAL! Riku sanjou Concludes all of the Video W content with Exploring Katsumi Daidou’s backstory…and in doing so harms the view-ability of one of the best Kamen Rider movies made. Toei does not learn.

Bandai America has released official images of the Power Rangers Zeo 6 Inch Legacy figures.  The figures are set to release later this year. Each figure similar to the previous waves the main five rangers will include a piece to build the Power Rangers Zeo Megazord.

Tokusatsu in Review: OOO and W: Movie War Core.

SKULL! We Dive into W’s Post-series stories with Akiko gaining a look back on her father’s origins as a Rider on her wedding day…while Toshiki Inoue takes the characters of Kamen Rider OOO for a ride that Doesn’t make much Sense, even if you know Nobunaga Oda. Poor Eiji Hino, he’s barely relevant to his own damn Crossover film.
