2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 190,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 3 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

Jushen ZhanJiDui Ep.1: China’s going Sentai!

Hey, well, this looks like this might be interesing. As some of you may know, Chinese TV Producers have been producing something of their own version of Japanese tokusatsu shows. Some of you may be familiar with the Chinese Armor Hero series (which looks like a massive Kamen Rider ripoff). Well, now they’ve created their own Sentai ripoff called “Jushen ZhanJiDui” (literally Titans Warstrike Team, 巨神戰擊隊), and now the first episode of the show has been streamed. You can check that out below:

Just a quick heads up: I barely understand Japanese, I definitely don’t know Chinese, so if you want a real review of the series, you’ll have to find fansubs somewhere (and send me a link to them).

And in case you do like this, we do have more info on the show at hand:

As you can see, the full team has six members, and from what I can tell, they’re divided into two or three different teams. And what makes this a Sentai ripoff is their use of mechs.

Here are the three team mechs, the Giant God Team Robot, the Giant Land Team Robot, and the Giant Sky Team Robot. The Giant God is comprised of five mechs, the Giant Land has four, and the Giant Sky has three. And of course they can combine together to form one big robot (name unknown). And we even have a pic of their transformation device/personal weapons:

Here are some previews for the show (Note: the only audio on these previews is background, no narration or sound bites):



The show has apparently been in production since October 2010, and the series premiered sometime last month (November 2012). I wouldn’t expect regular updates on this show if you do like it, because it looks like any episodes shared online will be uploaded very sporadically (even if there is demand for it).

Go-Busters Movie RAW & SUB: Of Robot Frogs and EneTowers

Alright, looks like we finally have our hands on the not-so-new movie, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters THE MOVIE: Protect the Tokyo EneTower!, and it’s the Director’s Cut too (Yay! A whole 35 minutes!).

In this movie, Vargas targets the Tokyo EneTower, and in order to protect the tower, they’ll need help from the new Buster Machine Fs-0O Frog. Can they safeguard the tower from Vargas? Will they be able to coax their new BuddyRoid into entering the fray? Check out the movie below to find out!

Kyoryuger Plot Revealed: Zyuranger 2.0?

 

 

“Long ago, in the time of the dinosaurs, the earth was invaded by forces from outer space. The only people capable of the stopping them was a team known as the Kyouki Ryu no Sha, the People of the Strong Dragons, or, Kyoryuger for short. Now, in the modern world, they return using the powers of the Beast Batteries to fight off this revived threat.”

Now, I’ve already been seeing complaints that the plot has the same basic premise as Zyuranger, but since that was to first Sentai to feature dinosaurs, and it’s going to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of Power Rangers, that shouldn’t be that much of a surprise. (Not saying there’s any sort of official tie-in, just that there may be some unspoken influences.)

Kyoryuger premieres February 17th, 2013.
