Netflix Now!: Saturday Morning Glory Edition (via Digital Lust)

Ahh, that takes me back.

Netflix Now!: Saturday Morning Glory Edition Netflix Now! is the weekly rundown of what you should be watching on Netflix. This week, we're going to take a look at three of my personal favorite Saturday morning shows from yesteryear, which have made their way back to life on Netflix. Ren and Stimpy Ren and Stimpy were the nonsensical cat and dog combination that always ended up in some ridiculous situations throughout it's two season run on Nickelodeon. The show became a cult classic due to … Read More

UK Martial Artist made honorary Ranger: No, this isn’t a stunt to promote the 2012 London Olympics…. :P

This is Aaron Cook, a 20-year old Tae Kwon Do champion who will be representing the UK in the upcoming 2012 London Olympics, and one of the strongest hopefuls they have to bring home the gold in that category. And in a bid to bring attention to his profile ahead of the 2012 Games, he has become the first honorary member of the Power Rangers.

On Friday, he exhibited himself at London’s Westfield Shopping Centre, as a real-life action figure. Hoping to bring attention to the launch of PRS in the UK, he mentioned how much of a Power Rangers fan he is.

“I’m hoping that by joining the Power Rangers I’ll help to inspire British children to follow in my footsteps, which will hopefully include a medal at the London 2012 Olympics”, said Cook. “I was mad about Power Rangers as a kid so my parents took me to a local Taekwondo club in Dorchester where I fell in love with the sport. The rest, as they say, is history.”

I’ll admit, when I first read this story, I thought it was purely promotional. But seeing that he is a fan, and that he was more interested in getting kids inspired to follow martial arts, I gotta say, this is pretty cool. Whoe would want to be an honorary Power Ranger, or be a life-size action figure. Hard to belive that he actually went through with it, standing in a plastic box all day, but hey, more power to him. I can definitely see why Saban would agree to do this.

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger New Opening: Just a little bit shinier!

Now that Gai is officially a member of the team, he’s now been included in the opening credits! Take a look at the new opening:

This is from the newest episode of Go-Kaiger, and they will probably include the other two “prologues” at the very beginning with the rest of this new sequence from now on.

Ikeni ikuzo!

Kamen Rider GIRLS Kamen Rider V3 Preview

Here’s a preview for the Kamen Rider GIRLS’ latest single, their cover of the Kamen Rider V3 theme song. Let’s listen in before we make any judgements:

It started out pretty well, very good build-up, and then they started to sing….

I’ll let you be the judge. This latest single comes out August 8th, along with a new album where they cover other famous Kamen Rider theme songs.

We’re boned.

Go-Kaiger Mobirate App for Android: To anwser your question now, no, I don’t know if it’s available in the US.

Last month, we had the Kamen Rider AR Cardass app game from iTunes, and now we have a Go-Kaiger Mobirate simulater app for Android! Watch the demo below:

“Mobirate for Android” basically mimics the function of the Mobirates, letting you either “key in” the code on the number pad, or use the simulated preloaded RangerKeys to activate the sound. I don’t know how much it is, or if it’s available for Androids outside of Japan, but it’s still cool, and if you can get it, go for it. Cheaper than buying an actual Mobirate at the moment.

Lady Gaga to perform the opening them to Fourze??!!! WTF????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 How do you like the shadowed pic?

Okay, this rumor I had to shre with you when I saw it, so bear with me here on this one. I comes from Rangerboard:

“The opening seems to be kept as a secret, wasn’t even announced in the press
conference. Nothing important, but whatever.”

“I heard it was Lady Gaga. She’s currently signed to Avex in Japan and she’s become more and more active in Japan. Her stylist, who is half-Japanese, talked about Kamen Rider recently. It also fits together with Yuri Gagarin. Gagarin→ Gaga. Would explain why it wasn’t revealed in the press conference.”

Lady Gaga? Seriously?! Is that what you think?!! I have a very good feeling that that is just a rumor. While big acts have done the openings for past Rider series, this one just seems a little far-fetched. Now if you were to tell me a big J-Pop singer was going to do it, I would believe it, But Lady Gaga? I just can’t see it. I’ll admit, I might not be the biggest Gaga fan on the planet, in fact I’m so far from being her biggest fan that I’m practically on the moon, but I still think that would be intersting, just not plausible.

Do yourself a favor, Gaga, and stay out of this one. At least wait until after the law suit has been dealt with.

UPDATE: (7/9/11) Okay, so it turns out that the Lady Gaga thing wasn’t a serious rumor, it was just something DekaEnd of HJU made up. He did not intend for anyone to take it seriously. So let’s all calm down about it and move on. Of course, I knew all along that there was no way that would happen in a million years, but what does that matter?

Go-Kaiger Ep.19 Pics: Go-KaiDouble!

Alright, here are some pics from the most recent episode of Go-Kaiger, hope you enjoy them.

Here, Gai is “syncing up” with the treasure chest. I guess this is how they’re able to get the different RangerKeys from their belt buckles.

Doesn’t he just look like a kid on Christmas morning?

“Which one should I go with?”

They’re not talking here, just miming, but then this happens…

Well, Koichi Sakamoto did say that he wanted to keep working on Kamen Rider W, so now we have Go-KaiDouble! (To be clear, I’m the only one calling him that)

And later…

Here, he’s asking for help from all 15 Sixth Senshi.

Go-KaiSilver Gold Mode!

And here are some preview pics for episode 20:

And here are some pics from Toei’s website:

     

That’s all for now, details on all of this to come soon. I haven’t seen the episode yet, but I’m really looking forward to it now.
