Kamen Rider Fourze Ep.48/Finale: SAYONARA FOURZE! UCHU KITAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

The time has come… it’s the finale for Kamen Rider Fourze!!! With the Rabbit Hutch destroyed, and Kengo and the Core Switch seemingly gone, do they have what it takes to stop Gamou’s evil plan? Check out the episode below to find out!

Finale SUB:

Well, they managed to kill Gamou with kindness, Kengo was brought back, and now their going to focus on trying to meet the Presenters. I smell movie sequels!

And of course while most of us are sad to see Fourze go, at least we’ll have the premiere of Kamen Rider Wizard to look forward next weekend! It’s Showtime!

UCHU KITAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Go-Busters Mission 19, Fourze Ep.41, And Akibaranger Ep.13/Finale/Glorified-Clip-Show RAW and SUBS: One’s near the end, and can the other come back from the dead?

Well, it’s that time of the week again. Time for new toku! And we’ve got quite the collection today. For this week’s Go-Busters, we’ve got the debut of the new Go-Buster Hercules (combined form of BC-04 and SJ-05, BeetBusters’s and StagBuster’s BusterMachines). For Fourze, we’ve got direct attacks from Virgo against members of the Kamen Rider Club, with quite the plot twist at the end. And we have the finale for Akibaranger, which is mostly a clip show brought on when Hatte Sabou, the main producer and “god” of their world, sends them a DVD of their exploits with a letter stating that “if they want a season 2, then they should look over this an consider what they did wrong”. Does this mean there will be a season 2 for our atypical heroes? Who knows, but you can check out what happens for yourself below!:

And next week, we’ll have the premiere of Great Go-Buster on Go-Busters, and Fourze seems to be taking an even darker turn (which happens every time a Rider series nears the end). And sorry, but still no new episodes of Akibaranger are coming, at least not anytime soon (there better a season 2, or I’m gonna be very pissed off!). While there might not be new episodes of anything, it looks like there’s going to be a lot of new things happening with Akibaranger in the near future, which I will go over soon.

Anyway, subs will be added as soon as they’re available.

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.51 (Finale) SUBBED: Goodbye, Go-Kaigers. See you in a month!

The sad day finally came Sunday. The Finale for Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger aired, and now what is perhaps one of the Greatest Super Sentai series is over. These will be dark days, at least until we can get a feel for Go-Buster. But you can always enjoy this subbed video of the finale:

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.51 Finale

My official series review: Greatest Toku Series EVER! Not just the Greatest Sentai series, or even the best Anniversary series, but it is, without a doubt, one of the most talked about and popular tokusatsu series in recent memory. With so many returning stars, epic scenes, and a cast and story that lived up to, and even reaffirmed, everything we love about Super Sentai, this series AND this cast are going to be remembered and talked about for years to come. Who knows, this may be the first Super Sentai series to live on in Den-O-style movie sequels for years to come. And that also includes merchandise, because the RangerKey gimmick is probably one of the best toy ideas PLEX and Toei Creative have ever come up with. Those mad basterds will probably be selling RangerKey sets and re-releasing Mobirates for the next ten years! And people will probably line up in troves to buy them!! Basically put, this might be the end of the series, but not the franchise, not by a long shot.

Go-Kaiger Ultra-Post: Haden Ni Ikuze! Until the last episode!

Yes, this is it, the long awaited Ultra-Post for Go-Kaiger (and so we’re clear, I don’t care if their isn’t a hyphen between the “Go” and “Kaiger”, that’s just the way I spell it), and the over-all theme of this post is “the beginning of the end”, because we’re down to the last two episodes, with the finale (Ep.51) on February 19th. And while the series may be ending, the franchise is still in full swing, with both a leading role in Superhero Taisen, and new Go-Kaiger toys being released along with the upcoming Go-Buster toy line (and yes, that’s the official spelling for the new series, you’re welcome). And of course, we still have about a months worth of news to cover in a single post, so let’s get to it!

First off, let’s go over the newest episode summaries for the last three episodes, where  they have an all-out battle with Zangyack!:

Episode 50: Title- Kessen no Hi (Day of the Great Battle) Airs- 2/12/12 Summary-

Zangyack is advancing their final plans, which includes an all out attack on the Gokaiger, and the ultimate destruction of Earth! It has been revealed that the Greatest Treasure in the Universe can, and must, be used to wipeout Zangyack’s Great Fleet, completely. The Gokaiger are hesistant to do so, wondering what their compensation would be.

Episode 51 (Final Episode): Title- Sayonara Uchuu Kaizoku (Goodbye Space Pirates) Airs- 2/19/12 Summary-

The Gokaiger engage in a life-or-death struggle against the Zangyack. What will the Gokaiger do with the Super Sentai’s 34 Great Powers? One after the other, strong enemies gather to stand in the Gokaiger’s way….

And we also have the title of the last two episodes, which are:

  • Episode 50: The Day of Battle
  • Episode 51: Farewell Space Pirates

And now for some new scans, which feature the final EPIC fight between Basco and Go-KaiRed, the Greatest Treasure in the Universe, the second Legend War, and much more!:

These scans below come from the first official Volume of the Go-Kaiger RangerKey Book:

 How is the book cover the smallest scan?

Anyway, This is book one, as there will be future volumes to come out with future RangerKey releases, such as these seen here:

Yep, those are SIX coming RangerKey sets, for Hurricanger, Boukenger, Dekaranger, Gekiranger, Kamen Rider OOO, and a 2nd set for Go-Buster, which features the 4th & 5th Go-Busters and the new BuddyRoid (which I will cover in a separate post).

Now let’s move on to some confirmed and rumored returning actor appearances for these last three episodes:

Yes, this already happened, but it’s so cool it’s just worth going over. for Ep.49 (The Greatest Trasure in the Universe, 2/5) we had a 5-in-1 tribute episode for SunVulcan, Changeman, Flashman, Maskman, and Fiveman. And for this tribute episodes, we had the following returning actors:

Takayuki Godai (Takayuki Hiba/Vul Eagle II), Kazuoki Takahashi (Shou Hayate/Change Gryphon), Kihachiro Uemura (Dai/Green Flash), Issei Hirota (Akira/Blue Mask), and Ryou Narushima (Remi Hoshikawa/Five Yellow).

For Ep.50 (The Day of The Deciding Battle, 2/12), we have:

Seiju Umon (credited under Aohisa Takayasu), who previously played Mammoth Ranger Goushi in Zyuranger, Louis Yamada LIII as Professor Shuichiro Amachi of Tensou Sentai Goseiger, and Kaoru Hirata as Yuka Yamazaki of Mahou Sentai Magiranger. Also, it looks like the kid from Ep.3 will be returning as well, for what reason is hard to say.

And confirmed to appear in the final episode (Ep.51 Farewell Space Pirates, 2/19):

Naoya Makoto, who played Tsuyoshi Kaijo/AkaRanger in Goranger, and who also appeared in the movie Go-Kaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Heroes. And we also have…

Atsushi Harada, who played Shou Tatsumi/GoGreen of GoGoV. He confirmed his appearance in the episode via Twitter.

Other rumored appearances include Yumi Sugimoto, who played Miu Sutou/Go-OnSilver in Go-Onger, and Keiya Asakura, who played Yohei Hama/BlueTurbo in Turboranger.

And finally, we end this post with some news and info on Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan.

First, here’s a full trailer for the movie:

Next, we have a full summary for the movie:

The movie opens with the Gokai Galleon being attacked by Gavan’s ship. It’s a really nice scene that makes use of the added budget. Gai’s reaction when he realizes that it’s Gavan is priceless.
Gokaiger vs Gavan Film Major Update Gavan introduces himself and the Gokaigers protest that they were pretty much given the blessing of Dekaranger crew, but Gavan remains silent before kicking their five collective asses, arresting them, and delivering them to his superior.
Said superior turns out to be Zangyack in disguise, introduces Gavan Bootleg, and immediately tries to execute the pirates. Before they can, Gavan releases them and returns their changers. There’s a short-ish fight before the Gojyudrill makes its entrance and rescues the crew. Gavan, however, is captured and transported to the worst prison in the universe.
Gokaiger vs Gavan Film Major Update Back on the Galleon, Marvelous reveals that Gavan saved his life ten years ago, basically by giving him the courage to jump from a platform that was about to explode.
The stroll down memory lane is interrupted by Basco. He tells them about the space prison that Gavan is being held at, knowing that they’ll go off to rescue him and leave the Galleon unguarded. He leaves them alone to figure out how they’re going to get to the prison to rescue Gavan.
Daigorou Oume, Shiro Akebono This is interrupted when Gavan comes walking down a path while talking to a giant Panda. Gai is quick to point out that it’s not Gavan, but Battle Kenya. About five seconds later, Denji Blue walks over. Luka thinks they both look like Gavan, but Gai denies it. Still, they get the idea to use the Battle Kenya and Denji Blue keys to open up a doorway to the space prison where Gavan is being held.
Once they break into the prison, they come across Jealoushito and some of the previous Super Sentai enemies. Having been in prison for awhile, they are a kind of horny and begin to lay flattery on Joe, Luka, Don, and Ahim.
Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters Back on Earth, Basco is about to get aboard the unguarded Gokai Galleon, but is stopped by the Go-Busters team. He thinks they’re impostors, but they tell him that they’re the 36th and newest Super Sentai team, the Go-Busters. They fight Basco to a stalemate, but since Sally was distracted, they’re able to get the upper hand.
In the space prison, the Gokaigers free the inmates after encountering a large group of Gormin. Gai and Joe hold them off while the others go off to find Gavan, who is being tortured by Gavan Bootleg. The Zangyack use the portal technology to stall them.
Don Dogoier with Kaze no Shizuka and Kegaleshia Thanks to the portals, doors in the space prison now lead to other places in the universe. Luka and Doc wind up in Europe fighting an army made up of the family of the Big Brother/Little Brother Zangyak. Ahim winds up fighting another Zangyak general near an ocean.
Marvelous alone makes it through to the room where Gavan is being held. He fights Gavan bootleg and, using a ricochet technique that really need to be seen to be believed, frees Gavan, reversing the roles they were in ten years ago.
The split up team then breaks reality by shooting out the ground beneath their respective feet, reunite in the basement of the space prison, and use a Silver Charged rising strike through the “portals” that takes out most of the Zangyack generals and returns everyone to Earth. It’s hard to convey just how awesome this was.
Gavan Bootleg Back on Earth, Gavan fights Gavan bootleg while the Gokaigers fight the Zangyack general. They use an all pink change, an all white change, and an all red change. Gavan bootleg is destroyed after being stabbed and sliced in half while an exploded car burns in the background.
Once the Zangyack general is defeated, he grows in size and has telekentic powers that he uses to shuffle buildings into GoJyuGokaiOh. Machfalcon joins the party and forms Kanzen GokaiOh, which then surfs around on the back of Gavan’s dragon.
Even THAT isn’t quite enough to put away the general, so Marvelous and Gavan do a combined Final Wave attack while standing on the head of the dragon (that is also carrying Kanzen GokaiOh). The combined Final Wave and GokaiOh attacks finally put away the general.
Gokaiger vs Gavan Film Major Update Afterwards, Gavan tells Marvelous that he’s happy to see what he’s become. Not just a pirate, but a good man. The former Battle Kenya and Denji Blue meet up with the crew. The Gokaigers return their respective keys to them and all transform. We see Gavan pose with Denji Blue and Battle Kenya while Gai flips out and asks for their autographs.

And for some very exciting news: it debuted at #2 at the Box Office, bringing in 159,227 people and grossing 160,750,000 Yen (2.06 million USD) in it’s opening weekend. So Congrats to them on that!

And with that, this post is finally finished! Do I expect this to be one of the last posts I do for Go-Kaiger? Not by a long shot! Especially since there’s still two episodes left, and they’ll also be in the upcoming Kamen Rider X Super Sentai: Superhero Taisen movie this Spring. Plus, they’re just too popular to completely let go of, so who knows what the future may bring for our beloved Space Pirates. But for now, just look forward to the finale!

Kamen Rider OOO Finale: RAW to the very end! Also subbed.

Hey everyone, I have a special treat for you. Doing something I would normally never do, I’m going to give you the links to the final episode of Kamen Rider OOO! 😉 I figured that it would be better for you to see the final episodes yourselves than for me to just describe what happened in poorly written post (BTW, Kamen Rider OOO tribute review coming soon). So, if you want to see the episode yourselves, just click the links below:

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=dVrTopVVVcs

Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4igfF_wxBU

If I by chance come across a subbed version of the episode, I’ll let you know. And I don’t want to spoil anything, but I will say that the series definitely doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, though I’m not entirely sure where they could take the story from here for the OOOxFourze Movie Wars. Just watch, and you’ll see what I mean.

UPDATE: (8/28/11) I found a subbed version! Check them out here:

Try to hold back the tears… 😥

Kamen Rider OOO Final Form Revealed?: There’s not suppose to be one, but okay, I’ll bite.

Since the very beginning, people have been wondering what Kamen Rider OOO’s Final Form will be. And despite the fact that someone whose worked on the show has already stated that there won’t be a true “final form” in the sense that we’ve grown accustomed to seeing, there are those who believe that they’ve found one. It’s called TaToBa Combo Requiem.

We know that in the upcoming final episode, Kougami will give Eiji the King’s Cores, the Core Medals used by the original OOO, the corrupt king, from 800 years ago. And these new medals will create this new combo. Here’s how 算吧@Tokumaru from HJU put it:

From代理:

最終回のコンボ情報です
タトバコンボレクイエム
コアメダルを破壊するプトティラとは対象に全てのコアの力を鎮めることができる王だけが使えるタトバの進化 コンボ
映司はタトバレクイエムでアンクを復活させ、コアの力だけを抜き取りアンクは普通の人間になる

The Last Episode COMBO
TaToBa COMBO Requiem
The king’s core of TaToBa evolution COMBO,it can suppress the destroy power of PuToTira and all core power.
Then Eiji use TaToBa COMBO Requiem to revive Ankh and take out the power of core so that Ankh become a human.

Well, if any of this is true, and this guy isn’t just some troll, then we can look forward to a happy ending to Kamen Rider OOO!

And yes, I know, it probably won’t be a “new” combo, I doubt if it will even look any different from the standard TaToBa combo, but hey, a Deus ex Machina is a Deus ex Machina.

Kamen Rider OOO Finale Summary: Mystery solved?…..

We’re officially down to the wire, folks. Only two episodes left in the series, and yet there’s more going on than anyone can keep up with. And now that we’re so close to the end, are we finally going to get the answers to the questions that we’ve been asking since the very beginning? Well, you can judge for youselves from these episode summaries:

Episode 47 – The Red Crack, Satisfaction, and Eiji’s Vessel
Dr. Maki wants Ankh to go berserk to end the world so plans to insert Core Medals inside Ankh. Eiji breaks Cores and try to prevent the devouring of humans. But Maki wants Eiji to go berserk as well and inserts Medals inside him as well.

When Maki prepares the final act, Ankh intervenes, but because of that his Core Medals are taken away, which is a threat to his existence. The injured and exhausted Eiji is found by Satonaka, she takes him to Kougami Foundation. Eiji develops a desire with power and Kougami prepares a lot of Cell Medals in front of him.

On the other hand, Hina tells Chiyoko about the relationship between Eiji, Ankh and Shingo. Chiyoko accepts the facts and encourages Hina. And because of that Hina decides to…?

Episode 48 – Kamen Rider OOO’s Final Episode
Uva regains all 9 of his Core Medals and is complete, the process of ending the world is starting. Maki wants Uva to go berserk and keeps on inserting Core Medals inside him. Uva gets annoyed and escape. Birth fights with the Complete Uva.

Eiji without any Medals, asks Kougami for help. Kougami hands Eiji the power to save the world, the King’s Core Medals (王が持っていたコアメダル). OOO appears in front of Birth, together with Ankh, they fight Uva. But Ankh does not tell the others that his Core Medals are slowly breaking…

So, what does all of this mean? Well, to sum it up as best as I can, 1.) we’ll finally learn secrets about the original OOO, the King from 800 years ago, 2.) somewhere around the end of the next episode, Maki will strip Eiji of all his Core Medals, including the PuToTyra cores, possibly reverting him back to a human, 3.) Uva will be the final “boss” in the series, though no word on what will happen to Maki just yet, and 4.) Ankh will fight alongside OOO/Eiji in the end, but it might cost him his life…

As for the King’s Core Medals, I don’t know what they are, there hasn’t been anything said about them, no images leaked showing what they could be, so we’ll just have to watch to find out.

And despite the direction the story seems to be taking, I really hope that it doesn’t end on a cliffhanger that won’t be resolved until the OOOxFourze Movie!

Farewell, Goseiger: A Tribute to one of the finest Super Sentai series I’ve ever seen.

Today was the finale for Tensou Sentai Goseiger, and I must say, they did an excellent job with it! For those of you who saw the episode, skip on to the next paragraph; if not, then keep on reading. The episode started off with very fast-paced action, as they continued their fight with Burajira, starting with a combined suit-less roll call while they individually henshined, fighting Burajira without needing to rely on their super Goseiger powers. Of course, while they fought, the full solar eclipse took place, so Burajira attempted to take advantage of the situation, but they managed to fight him off, even having a giant mecha battle where they summoned the other headders to fight with them, forming a Skyick Landick Seaick Gosei Great, but even that wasn’t enough to stop him, though it made a big dent. After a giant explosion, they find themselves on the ground again with a nearly defeated Burajira, when Alata charges at him once more. Alata asked Burajira again why he was so intent on destroying the very world that gave him life, and Burajira justs gave that maniacal laugh, and thus the fighting started again. After a couple of minutes of back and forth, Alatat struck him down, at least he thought. The eclipse passed, and everything seemed like they were in the clear, but thats when Burajira popped up and allowed himself to be destroyed, filling the drills with his Dark Gosei Power, which shot them into overdrive and left Goseiger ten minutes to stop the drills and save the world from destruction. While they were trying to stop the drills Alata told them all of the great realization he had: that the reason that they were given the powers they have and why they were left on Earth to carry out the Gosei mission even though they were innature, was because they were immature, and after another one of his supershort inspirational speeches, they channeled their Gosei power, flew into the air, and combined their power and focused it across the whole world. Not only did they undo the damage caused by the drills, but the energy was enough to rebuild Heaven’s Tower. After that, there back at Dr. Amachi’s observatory and Master Head is telling them that they are full Gosei angels now, and that they can come back to Gosei World. But they ask to stay on Earth for the time being, so that they can experience more and mature a little more. Nozomu was excited by this, thinking that they planned on staying with them, only to be upset when they tell him that they aren’t. After running out of the room, Alata, goes after him to explain to him that just because they weren’t staying, didn’t mean they would never come back, or that they didn’t care about Nozomu. And with a small goodbye scene on the bridge that they showed in the ending credits, they all flew off to their own way. Datas and GoseiKnight, well they just sort of flew off into nowhere, while the rest of the Goseiger sort of went back to what they were doing before they came together. Hyde landed on the shore, Eri went to a children’s park, Agri and Monet went back into the woods, and Alata landed on top of a building, looking over the city.

So, I think its safe to say, that Goseiger was a suprisingly good series. When I say that, I’m refering to the fact that a lot of people, including myself I’m big enough to admit, thought that this was going to be a flop of a series, as big a fail as Magiranger was(to all Magiranger fans, lets face it, Magiranger wasn’t very good as a Sentai). We saw the advertisements, heard the opening, and nearly wrote the series off before it could start. I thought that this series was purposely targeted at the youngest of the sentai audience, and would be too simplistic to really enjoy. But boy, am I glad to be wrong! This series had me hooked from the first episode, and managed to keep me there through the whole series. It was very innovative too, introducing the headers, the use of the card medium (which may not be original, but is new to Super Sentai), senshi that have intra-group alliances (in other words, the fact that they come from specific tribes and that that identity precedes and nearly supercedes their Goseiger identity), and traditionally non-senshi helpers becoming either full members of the sentai or major partners (i.e., GoseiKnight and Datas).

What really defined the series wasn’t just watching the Goseigers develop and grow into their roles, but also watching Nozomu grow and open up through his friendship with Alata and the others. This has been one of the few series to really put focus on a character that wasn’t ever meant to be either a senshi or anything of the like. And in many ways, despite the fact that he’s about ten years old, he matures almost as much as any of the Goseigers. Not to mention that his “childish” understanding of how the world should work is part of what kept the Goseigers on path through some of the more difficult parts of their journey.

Overall, this has been one of the greatest series to come by in a long time, not to say the ones before it weren’t. It’s uncommon to see two equally good and equally popular Super Sentai series one after another. I guess it’s more of a credit to the writers of the series that they can just keep making gems. I just hope that Go-Kaiger is just as great.

Well this has taken me nearly all day to write, due to your usual set of distractions (chores, emergencies, internet-related schtuff
