Tokusatsu in review
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.
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.
JOKER! W Ends with the Series’ final revelations, Ryu Finding true closure and Love, and the machination of the world’s end Challenged by the Final Trump. EXTREME! Fuuto comes under attack by Dangerous zombies and new gaia memories, as the series secret antagonists’ other machinations clash catastrophically with the plot of a madman out for revenge.
TRIGGER! Ryu reaches the next level of speed in his final confrontation with Weather, as Museum restructures itself amidst increased pressure from it’s investors.
METAL! Shotaro and Phillip’s partnership is driven to the Test amidst the introduction of Ryu’s mysterious benefactor and her ever-present hatred.
ACCEL! Story shifts Drive a new character into the cast, as a new long-running case takes form.
FANG! W dives back to the event that set off their adventures amidst a case of the sudden resurrections. And actually pulls such a plot off unlike Kamen Rider Taisen which ripped this movie off.
LUNA! W continues it’s early arc with further establishment of the city, mistaken identities, and Akiko taking some responsibility for herself.
CYCLONE! The Rider reviews jump ahead to the 2-in-1 Rider Popularly considered one of the best Entry’s in the Franchise! HEAT! W Begins with a Windy city set on Fire with the Burning blood of it’s criminal element.
The long-awaited Finale to the Ruroken Movie reviews showscases what is ultimately the weakest of the three films…and sadly we get to them after funimation has made them widely available. Once again, Our timing is terrible.
The greatest thief in all of fiction has struck with an ultimatum: Remind the world that Lupin had a live-action theatrical feature in the 70’s! Meh, still better than that 2014 one.
Ninja steel’s begun…and it’s based on A Terrible Sentai. How’s Saban dealing with it?
IT’s Morphin Time! AS Shinta boots up the Fourth zordon Season to see how it compared to it’s source material just in time for the end of it’s 20th anniversary! …Our Timing is Bad, Okay?
Ohranger Ends with Buldont taking charge and ousting an aberrant missile….Before the Series goes to Plaid with Dorin Deus Ex Machina.
The Second theatrical Sentai teamup brings the Kakuranger in to fight a Baranoian Youkai…to the detriment of the current show regulars.
