Go-Kaiger Episode Summaries: And now we’re up to FOUR Tribute Episodes for Spetember!

 

Wow, somehow they just keep adding up! The newest episode summaries have come in, and it looks like there’s going to be four tribute episodes in September. That’s just a solid month of back-to-back tribute episodes. I guess since we’re about halfway through the story already (even though it still doesn’t feel like it), we’re starting to move into a period where they’ll be focused more on getting these tribute episodes out of the way and collecting the remaining Grand Powers. I let you judge for yourselves from these episode summaries:

 

Episode 28: Wings are Eternal – 9/4
“Mera Mera~ to Hi no Tori Jyaaku na Teki wo Uchitaosu (Burning Burning~The Phoenix will defeat the evil enemy) !”
Gai helps the Pirates to interpret Navi’s prediction. Accordingly, they start searching for Jetman, when a man on a motorcycle appears before them and steals Joe’s Mobirates. The man is Black Condor, and he tells them to stop looking for Jetman! Just what is he after!?

Episode 29: Abare Seven Change New Combination – 9/11
The former AbareBlue of AbaRanger, Yukito Sanjou (Shou Tomita), appears with his wife and secretary, Emiri Sanjou (Michi Nishijima), the self-proclaimed “former AbarePink.” Ahim transforms seven times, could one of these changes be….AbarePink?!!

Action Commander Daiyaru appears. This episode was also noted to feature Ahim and Gai pretending to be a couple. This is also believed to be the episode where they will fully unlock Abaranger‘s Grand Power to form GoJyuGo-KaiOh.

Episode 30: The Friend’s Soul – 9/18
Liveman’s former Yellow, Joh Ohara (Kazuhiko Nishimura), appears before Joe, who has acquired Barizorg’s blueprints. Together, they head for Academia to try to find a way to turn Barizorg back into a human!

Great Scientist Zaien will be this episode’s villain.

Episode 31: N/A – 9/25
OhRanger’s former OhRed, Gorou Hoshino (Masaru Shishido), tries to get in contact with Basco, while OhPink, Momo Maruo (Tamao Satou), gets in contact with Gokaiger!?

So, to sum up the summaries, we’ve got tribute episodes for: Jetman, Abaranger, Liveman, and Ohranger. And I thought my schedule was going to be busy next month.

Kamen Rider OOO PuToTyra Combo confirmed for Climax Heroes Fourze: Isn’t that character a bit of a dinosaur at this point? :P (I joke)

Will we ever run out of OOO fanart? Probably not.

It’s been confirmed through the Japanese edition of Playstation Magazine that the OOO PuToTyra combo will appear in the upcoming PSP game Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze.

In the previous game Climax Heroes OOO, Kamen Rider OOO could only use his first three combos (excluding TaToBa, which is his primary combo), from GataKiriBa to SaGoZo. But with this new expansion to the game, OOO will have all of his in-show Combos, which also includes TaJaDoru and ShaUTa. For a look at the issue of Playstation Magazine this story came from, check out the video below:

It’s very informative, if you speak Japanese.

Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze will be released for PSP and Nintendo Wii this Winter. Price is still TBA.

Power Rangers Miracle Force OP and ED: Korean is a fun language!

Months ago, we reported that the series Tensou Sentai Goseiger was going to be dubbed in Korean and air in South Korea under the title Power Rangers Miracle Force. Well, the series has debutted in South Korea, and now we have the new OP and ED for the newly dubbed series! Let’s watch and listen to the “new” theme songs:

Miracle Force OP:

Miracle Force ED:

They’re pretty good renditions of the original Japanese theme songs by NoB and Takahashi Hideyuki (both from Project.R). Interestingly enough, both theme songs were performed in Korean by Sang-geol Lee. Not sure who that is, but I’m very interested in finding out. Anyway, what do you guys think of the new Korean versions?

henshinhead EXCLUSIVE!: Official character breakdowns for next Power Rangers series! Seriously!!

Wow, for once, I’m the one reporting on a breaking story! Anyway, as you all know, recently some casting sides popped up for the next Power Rangers series, sides which weren’t more than the ones released the year before. Well, now we may actually have the real character names and bios for this upcoming series! On a breakdown service website (a website that send out audition information to people who may qualify for certain roles), a breakdown showed up for a project simply titled “Power Rangers”, and it includes breakdowns of the five main Ranger roles. Exclusive from henshinhead, here’s the character breakdowns that popped up on that page:

ALL OF THE FOLLOWING POWER RANGER ROLES are a group of five teens 18-23 years to play 15-19 years. They are all nice looking, charismatic, energetic, outgoing and confident. They must have SUPER HERO LOOKS with average height and in great physical condition. Martial arts or gymnastics is a plus, but not mandatory.

[ RED RANGER – REESE ]
Any ethnicity male, 18 – 23 to play 17-19 years. Reese is an attractive young man with super hero looks and a nice athletic build. He is a natural leader with honorable intentions. He is a much disciplined young man.

[ BLACK RANGER – BARON ]
All ethnicity Male, 18 to 23 to play 17-19. He has good looks with a slim build. He is fun and witty with great comedic abilities. He is very creative and not afraid to think outside the box.

[ BLUE RANGER – PARRY ]
Any ethnicity Male, 18 to early twenties to play 16-19 years. He is a bit on the nerdy side. He is a studious and highly intelligent.

[ PINK RANGER – SADIE ]
Any ethnicity, 18 to 23 to play 16 to 19 years. Average height. Sadie is a beautiful, sophisticated, intelligent and confident. She is very intuitive and genuinely cares about others.

[ YELLOW RANGER – AVA ]
Any ethnicity, 18 to early twenties to play 16 to 18 years of age. Average height. Ava is a very cute, sweet, positive and very naïve small town girl.

Yes, I know they almost sound like the current set of Rangers, but what can you do when you have a very popular show that you only planned on fiming two season of? Anyway, this is a henshinhead EXCLUSIVE (I want to just hammer that point across to everyone that reads this. As of the time I’m writing and publishing this post, NO ONE ELSE has reported on this), brought to you by your favorite toku blogger.

For those of you interested in seeing the entire breakdown, just click here. (Note: you will need an actos access account to view it, but don’t fret because it’s free to sign up).

So Miguel, you still want to wait ’til the next round of audition?

UPDATE: Okay, so I noticed that there were a few important things I forgot to mention. Here’s the bulk of it:

Casting Director: Iris Hampton
Interview Dates: TBD
Callback Dates: TBD
Shoot/Start Date: December 2011
Pay Rate: APPROX Salary 70/hr or 1,000NZD per day. Favored nation
Location: New Zealand

Yep, they’ll start filming in December, and it’s being filmed in New Zealand again. And here’s something else to think about:

Special Notes:  ALL TALENT must be willing to relocate to New Zealand for approx. 6-8 months. Must have valid or current passport with at least one (1) year left before renewal or able to get one. Please note the names noted in the character breakdown are temporary names for the Rangers needed for this season. PLEASE NO PHONE CALLS AT THIS TIME. 

So for those of you who are really REALLY interested, just make sure that you have a passport and that your willing to travel to another country for half a year. Getting picked to be on the show is a great opportunity, but only if your willing, able, and absolutely sure that you want to go that far to do it. And if you are, then you already have one person rooting for you to get the part. 😉

Red Mask Comeback: Is Takeru returning in Go-Kaiger?

Well, not that long ago, some pics surfaced on Facebook showing Georgette Inaba and her son posing with the Go-Kaiger cast and crew. Inaba is the wife of “former” actor Kaizu Ryousuke, who is best known for his role as Takeru/Red Mask in Hikari Sentai Maskman. Ket me show you the pictures first, so you get an idea of where the post is headed.

The following pics are taken from Orends:Range:

There are two very interesting things about these pics, 1) they were all taken by Kaizu, raising questions about a possible Maskman tribute episode, and whether or not Kaizu has come out of retirement from acting to take up his old role in this new series, and 2) Go-KaiYellow is the subject of three of these pics, with two featuring Ichimichi Mao and one with the Go-KaiYellow suit actor. Either this possible tribute episode has something to do with Luka, or someone really likes Ichimichi Mao. For the sake of this post, let’s go with the former.

And while we’re talking about rumors, it’s rumored that Izumi Shuihei (Domon/TimeYellow of Timeranger) and Satou Tamao (Momo Maruo/OhPink of Ohranger) will appear in their respective tribute episodes. Not every tribute episode has to have a Red Senshi star in it. 😛

Go-Kaiger Ep.27 screen shots: Nothing beats the old switcharoo!

Alright then, here are some screen shots from the latest episode of Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger! In this one, Luka and Don have switched bodies thanks to this week’s Action Commander. I wonder what kind of shenanigans they’ll get into while they’re in each others’ bodies? Let’s take a look:

Okay, I haven’t seen the episode yet, but I can tell you now that there’s an overwhelming number of Bioman villianess references in the background. I wonder if we’re close to a Bioman tribute episode?

And next week:

Well, that’s all the stuff from this newest episode I could find. If anything else pops up, I’ll let you know.

UPDATE: (8/28/11) Hey, how would you like to see this episode for yourselves? Well, here’s some fun links for you to follow for Ep.27:

And here’s the preview for Ep.28:

Enjoy!

UPDATE: (Same day) Let me do you one better, how about a subbed episode, that’s just one video! Here’s a link to a subbed version of Ep.27: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mvUcfvzg5s&feature=feedu Now you can really enjoy!

Kamen Rider Fourse Ep.1 Preview: Starting anew, at a high school no less.

With the Kamen Rider OOO finale airing today (or yesterday, depending on your time zone), we now have a chance to see the preview for Kamen Rider Fourze’s first episode! Let’s take a look:

Wow, we’re so close now, you can almost taste it. And it tastes good! A little on the spacey side, but goes down easy. 😛

Go-Kaiger and Fourze scans: Setting sail and taking off!

Alright, so we’re firmly in new magazine scans time, and for the month of September, that means news about upcoming Go-Kaiger episodes, and new pics from Kamen Rider Fourze! Let’s jump to it!:

Starting with the Go-Kaiger scans:

Here’s a pic of GoJyuGo-KaiOh, the full, shared Grand Power from Abaranger. As you can see, it utilizes the arm swap gimmick frequently used in Abaranger, giving Go-KaiOh Go-JyuJin’s drilling power. There’s a second pic below.

And here’s something from the Jetman tribute episode, with some kind of red knight as their main enemy, and Wakamatsu Toshihide returning as Yuuki Gai/Black Condor.

This scan seems to be mostly about Basco, but what’s that on the bottom-left corner? Hmm…

Anyway, that’s it for Go-Kaiger, now let’s move onto Fourze!

Look at all the Astro Switches! The FourzeDriver must be like an iPhone and a Swiss Army knife rolled into one. 😛

And here are some Zodiarts, lined up next to an overview of the students in the high school. I wonder if any of them could be a Zodiart?

And that’s what I’ve found of Fourze so far.

And that should wrap up this post for now. If I find anthing else, I’ll be sure to let you know!
