Movie Wars MEGAMAX filming updates: Wrap ups, voice overs, and some new pics.

NO! Not ironic hipster glasses! Oh, the humanity!

Getting past that, it’s time for some MEGAMAX updates!

According to a recent post on Watanabe Shu(Hino Eiji/Kamen Rider OOO)’s personal blog, it looks like he finished filming his scenes for the OOO part of the movie around October 9th. And in a later post that came out Friday, October 15th, Watanabe confirmed that he, along with Iwanaga Hiroaki (Gotou Shintaro/Kamen Rider Birth), Kimijima Asaya (Date Akira/Prototype Birth), and Miura Ryosuke (Ankh), had finished their ADR recordings for the movie. And in a separate blog post, Takada Riho also mentioned doing some ADR recording for the movie. I wonder why?

And this newest set of movie pics confirms the return of Kougami to the movie. And if I may say so, SUBARASHI!

Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider OOO & Fourze Movie Wars MEGAMAX premieres December 10th.

Power Rangers Samurai Origins Part 2 Trailer: We need Samurai Megazord Power, NOW!

Yesterday, the first part of the new PRS Origins Special aired, featuring what probably should have been the first episode of the series (since it was essentially a carbon copy of the first episode of Shinkenger, at least that’s what I’ve heard). And now we have the trailer for Part 2 of the Origins special, which includes first Samurai Megazord fight! Check it out below:

I like how every battle is suppose to be the biggest battle in the universe EVER. 😛

Anyway, premieres next Saturday in Nick.

Go-Kaiger Ep.34 Sub: Big Imposters and Big Dreams

Alright, it looks like subs for Ep.34 of Go-Kaiger are up, and we have them here! In this, an imposter is sent by Zangyack disguised as an old friend of Luka’s, who takes her place and tries to infiltrate the Go-KaiGalleon. Needless to say, he’s not all that successful, but we do get to find out what Luka’s Dream is. And you can too, by checking out the video below:

So, will Luka be able to buy the whole universe with the Greatest Treasure in the Universe? Maybe she should just stick with the original plan of buying a planet…

The Final Chapter: Viz Media’s Shonen Jump to end March 2012.

In recent days, Viz Media announced at the New York Comic Con that publication of Shonen Jump magazine will end in March of next year with a “farewell April 2012 issue”. It’s end will mark the unveiling of a new online magazine called Weekly Shonen Jump Alpha.

At least three of the titles from Shonen Jump’s most recent issue, Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece will be carried over into this new publication. Shonen Jump has been publishing several online titles since 2010, but so far they have been supplements only available to current magazine subscribers.

The publication has been in print since Viz first launched the American version of Shuesha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in November 2002, following the release of “Issue 0” in July of the same year. Manga titles from it’s nearly decade-long run have included Dragonball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh!, One Piece, Bleach, Yu Yu Hakusho, Shaman King, and arguably its most popular title, Naruto.

Truly, these are sad days for American manga/anime fans. While various individual mangas are still in print (or reprint in some cases) in the U.S., Shonen Jump was one of the only regular manga publications in the U.S., introducing a fresh American audience new stories, new characters, and a new style of writing and illustrating. Introduced at the start of American interest in anime, it rode on a wave of newfound popularity, and kept building with every new title brought over. And for a time, sales of Shonen Jump and other manga titles outpaced American comic book giants. But as overall popularity waned, other similar publications fell short and came to an end. And now Shonen Jump, the publication that started a cultural revolution, has become another victim of changing times.

Hopefully, the publication will find new life in this new online format. Best of wishes to Viz Media on their new endeavor. Ganbatte!

Kamen Rider Fourze Ep.7 Raw: Bad teachers, big jerks, and someone overly obsessed with chains.

Here’s Fourze Ep.7 for everyone. This time, Gentaro and the others have found themselves in remedial classes, dealing with a teacher clearly out to get Gentaro, a ticked-off Daimonji who keeps attacking Gentaro, and a Zodiart they can’t get out of detention long enough to fight!

Everyone’s in detention?! Daimonji’s emotional?!! There’s going to be even more dog-themed puns?!!! I can answer that last one: yes, there will be more dog puns. Looks like we’re all going to be in the dog house for a while (see, there’s another one).
