Go-Kaiger October Episode Summaries: Who here’s dressing as a pirate for Halloween?

Hey, we have the latest batch of episode summaries for Go-Kaiger, and it looks like we’ll be¬†getting some really good episodes down the pipeline. If you don’t believe me, then check it out for yourself:

Episode 32: Chikara wo Hitotsu ni (Combine Our Powers) – (10/02) Gai and the others were injured by the true form of Basco. Hakase decides to create a new weapon, borrowing everyone else’s weapons in the process. He continues development on the weapon, but it is only ending in failure.

Furtheremore, the Action Commander Shieldon, who can repel any attack with his shield, appears. Although this only causes Hakase to worry more, he gets a hint from the words of Gai and Goro Hoshino, and is able to complete the GalleonBuster at last!

Episode 33: Hero Daaaa! (I’m a hero!) – 10/09
Gai’s GokaiCellular is swallowed by the new Action Commander, Zakyura. Gai can neither transform, or fight… The worrying Gai runs into a Delivery Man from a Chinese Restaurant. He turns out to be none other than the former Ryuuranger, Tenkasei Ryou!

Episode 34: Yume wo Kanaete (Dream Comes True) – 10/16/11
Luka’s childhood friend and businessman, Cain, will make an appearance in this episode. Action Commander Onenine appears. Furthermore, “Fulfill My Dream, Dynaman” was Kagaku Sentai Dynaman’s ending theme.

Yuki Kimisawa who previously played Kamen Rider W’s Kirihiko Sonozaki aka Nasca Dopant will play the role of Luka’s childhood friend.

Episode 35: Jigen no Mukou (Dimension on the Other Side) – 10/23 The Gaiark officer, Chirakashizuki appears.

Episode 36: Aibou Kaizoku (Parter Pirate) – 10/30
In front of the Gokaiger appeared a mysterious robot, whose name was Bonper! Former Go-OnRed, Esumi Sosuke, appears. The Gokaigers end up taking on Chirakashizuki and another Gaiark officer, Babaachuudo, to stop their attack on the Gunman World. However, the Gokaiger fall into a Gaiark trap! There hope lies in… Engine Machalcon!

It is also confirmed that Engine #13: Machalon will be voiced by Hiroaki Hirata, best known for his role as Sanji of One Piece, and Wild Tiger of Tiger & Bunny.

So, two tribute episodes, and a look into Luka’s past? This is going to be quite the month for¬†the Go-Kaigers!

And it looks like the fun’s not stopping there! We have three more rumored episode summaries for November, and they include two more tribute episodes, and a look into Ahim’s past. Let’s take a look:

Episode 39: Megaranger Tribute Episode
The Gokaigers disugise themselves as high school students and enter Moroboshi High. Guest Starring Ooshiba Hayato as Kenta Date aka MegaRed.

Episode 40: Timeranger Tribute Episode
A Gai focus episode. Guest Starring Shuuhei Izumi as Domon aka TimeYellow.

Episode 41: Not Tribute
Ahim’s backstory episode. The Emperor’s bodyguards, who destroyed Planet Famille, appears.

Okay, not the most detailed, but they are over a month away, so…

New Go-Kaiger Pics: More Machalcon! And some disappointing news…

Hey, new set of pics popped up, mainly of the Go-KaiGalleon Buster, and of Engine Machalcon. Check them out below:

Okay, the more I look at it, the more I keep thinking that there’s going to be a second formation with this and Go-KaiOh, like there was with GaoLion.

And finally, we have this pic showing the RangerKey options for the Go-KaiGalleon Buster. As you can see, they have seven RangerKeys in place, which includes the team and an extra black¬†key. If you look at the on in the picture though, you can see that it’s just the GoseiBlack Key, not a seventh Go-Kaiger. While it’s still a possibility at this point, there still hasn’t been any word on one, so if they have one, it’ll be a while before we hear anything about it.

Go-Kaiger Scans: Engine Machalcon and Go-KaiGalleon Buster in Action!

It’s that time again. New magazine scans are making there way around, and with them a new set rumors and spoilers to go around. This time, we have new scans of the Go-KaiGalleon Buster, and we have some real pics of the Go-Onger Grand Power, Engine Machalcon. Let’s get to it!

Here’s the Go-KaiGalleon Buster. Hakase created it using the Ohranger‘s Grand Power, modeling it after the Galleon.

The Buster’s¬†finisher is called “Rising Strike”, and is activated by inserting five metallic Go-Kaiger¬†RangerKeys (don’t ask me why it’s specifically metallic keys). And as you can see, the others are supporting Go-KaiRed as he blows away the poor schmuck in the top-left corner.

Next we have Engine Machalcon, the 13th Engine and Go-Onger‘s Grand Power. According to this, Machalcon is somehow the son of Speedor and BearV (yeah, I don’t even want to think about how that would be possible).

Using the Go-Onger RangerKeys, Machalcon can combine with Go-KaiOh to form Go-OnGo-KaiOh, a formation similar to GaoGo-KaiOh. It will debut in the Go-Onger tribute episode.

Speaking if which, we have a couple of rumors about that episode and other future episodes, which you can check out here:

  • Two Gaiark survivors appear. Barbaric Preservation Chief Chirakashizkey¬†and 2nd Pollution President Babatchean. The Go-Onger tribute will last for two episodes.
  • Following that is the Kanzen GokaiOh episode. It was mentioned that it¬† will appear in a two-parter. It is not sure if it will appear on its own¬† story arc or in the Go-Onger 2-parter.
  • Emperor Ackdos Gil sends a tide turning weapon to his son. Walz Gil heads to the front lines to test it.
  • After being pushed into the corner by the Zangyack, the Gokaiger use their own great power to form Kanzen GokaiOh.
  • Waltz Gil is killed in this battle; Barizorg is defeated by Joe and dies; and, Damaras takes Waltz Gil’s corpse.

Wow, if even half of that’s true that would¬†almost completely change the direction of the show. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it really happens.

Go-Kaiger Magazine Spoilers: Tenkasei! Mahha Zenkai!

Well, somebody got an early look at the upcoming issue of Telebikun magazine, and they managed to spread a number of spoilers about upcoming episodes of Go-Kaiger, mostly dealing with the Dairanger and Go-Onger tribute episodes. Check them out below:

  • There’s a picture of the 5 Gokaigers holding up the Go-KaiGalleon Buster on their shoulders and a waist up shot of Basco with text that says, “Basco stole 3 Great Powers from the past warriors.”
  • Sousuke Esumi aka Go-OnRed and RyŇć of the Heavenly Fire Star aka Ryu Ranger are mentioned in the magazine. Confirming that their tribute episodes will happen this October.
  • An image of Kanzen GokaiOh is featured in a magazine spread and on the bottom right of the bottom-right is Go-OnRed and GokaiRed who says, “Now that’s one hell of a treasure!”
  • Engine Machalcon is introduced in the remaining area of the spread. There is a small arrow that points to Go-On GokaiOh as well as another pointing to Kanzen GokaiOh.
  • There is a next issue preview that says, “Even more of the awesome past warriors will show up! and then…!!” A silhouette of a monster-looking character is shown in the page which resembles Burajira (Man, that guy just¬†won’t quit).

Along with these new spoilers, Hamura Ei, who played Shoji/TenmaRanger in Dairanger also tweeted yesterday that “very soon, HE will be back!” and that he would explain what that means¬†sometime¬†today. So I would expect an update on this soon.

Go-Kaiger Mega-Post: Catching up on some slippery Pirates!

For those of you that happen to read other blogs, you know that I have gotten very far behind on catching up with the latest news about everything and anything. Well, to make up for that, I’m going to post EVERYTHING I’ve found Go-Kaiger-related in one super-sized Mega-Post! Expect lengthy descriptions and oodles of pics from this point on.

Starting with the oldest stories first, we have an interview with Wakamatsu Toshihide, who plays Yuki Gai/Black Condor, originally in Jetman but most recently in the newest episode of Go-Kaiger, talking about how writer¬†Inoue Toshiki talked him into taking up his old role for this new series (note: this was translated from a Japanese magazine interview, I had nothing to do with the translating, so don’t complain to me about inproper English) :

I got phone call from Toshiki Inoue in the very early morning… well as is usual for him (laugh). He said ‚ÄúI’ll write script so appear on Gokaiger as Gai Yuki‚ÄĚ. I’ve heard about “Gokaiger” so I knew what he told about, but I couldn’t believe what he said, because Gai already passed away.

The story of Gai’s death in Jetman was made mainly by Inoue and me at a meeting where we drank much(laugh). So I was against Gai’s being alive and I told so. Then he said ‚ÄúI understand you. Believe in me. If you don’t appear, I will never write.‚ÄĚ So I replied to him with saying ‚ÄúI’ll leave everything to you.‚ÄĚ

After reading the script, I called Inoue and heard him saying “It’s nice story for you isn’t it?” (laugh) I myself thought I’m too outstanding well in the story so I felt a kind of guilty for being a leading character in Gokaiger. At the same time I felt Inoue’s having a special place in his heart for Gai.

At the point I received the offer I called Hirofumi Ishigaki, Action Director in Gokaiger. He acted Yellow Owl in Jetman. I asked him if it’s possible to make Mr. Ohfuji act Brack Condor.

When I was in fitting session, I got welcome news. Mr. Nakazawa, the director said Ohfuji accepted the offer of Black Condor. Other staffs also thought that Black Condor must be acted by Ohfuji. That’s my great pleasure.

To answer your first question, Mr. Ohfuji is the original suit actor for Black Condor, so that makes the performance of Black Condor in battle that much more authentic. Which makes it that much cooler overall.

Next up, we have an official announcement for a new Go-Kaiger game from Namco Bandai, this time for the Nintendo DS, entitled Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: Atsumete Henshin! 35 Sentai!

The game’s genre is “Narikiri Treasure Hunting”, and you do just that. Basically, you go around the world finding, collecting, and using RangerKeys in battle. Each level has it’s own RangerKey, and along the way you have to fight Zangyack and collect the RangerKey on the map as soon as possible. The game also uses the stylus, making battles that much more simpler. The game will be released November 17th for 5040 yen.

I know it’s only been two¬†console games so far, but that’s actually quite a lot in such a short span of time, amd whe you include other non-console games, then that number really jumps up.

Speaking of which, Namco Bandai has also announced a new app game for Go-Kaiger, called Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger ~ Let’s GokaiGalleon ~!

In this new game, you can play as Go-KaiGalleon, fighting against Zangyack spaceships. You even have the ability to play as Go-KaiOh!

Here’s the official iTunes description:

Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger comes to iPhone! Blast away meteoroids and enemy spacecraft that threaten the Gokai Galleon on its voyage towards Earth! Control the action with simple taps and flicks as you feverishly try to earn your best score!

Controls: Lock on to enemies on the screen by tapping them. You can lock on to multiple enemies at the same time. Next, flick the screen to attack all the enemies you are locked on to simultaneously! Tilt the device left and right to dodge enemy attacks.

Hints: Multiply your score locking on to multiple enemies and defeating them all at once. Pirate marks pile up on the lower left side of the screen, according to the number of enemies defeated at once. Once you have eight marks, you can transform into Gokaioh. You are invincible while transformed, giving you the opportunity to boost your score even more!

Sounds simple and easy to play, and it’s only 170 yen. It’s available for iPhone 3GS & 4, and iPod Touch 3 and up. You’ll need¬†a Japanese iTunes account to¬†purchase it, but luckily for you, Jefusion happens to have a post¬†on how to set up one.

Next we have some interesting info on a “discarded” background story for Don Dogoier/Hakase/Go-KaiGreen. It comes from an interview with Go-Kaiger lead wirter Arakawa Naruhisa by Hyper Hobby magazine. Here’s one background story they considered for the good doctor:

(Arakawa)¬†“Don would be a scared boy who saw his scientist father die in a laboratory after the Zangyack attacked and started a fire, leaving him traumatized.” In addition, Arakawa said that he wouldn’t be “a special person like Ahim”, that he doesn’t come from some high rank in society, that he is just an average person (comparitively speaking).

Well, I’m not sure if some version of this story is used, but it would explain a lot about him. What do you think about it?

Anyway, let’s move on to some showroom toy pics featuring Go-KaiMachine Machalcon and the Go-KaiGalleon Buster:

This is the next Go-KaiMachine, Engine Machalcon. He is the Go-Onger‘s Grand power, and as you can see below, he can be used to combine Go-KaiOh and Go-JyuJin into a single combined mecha!

And here we (finally) have Go-Kaiger‘s cannon weapon, the Go-KaiGalloen Buster. As you can see, it works like other cannon weapons, where everybody puts their RangerKeys in and KABOOM! Freshly toasted Zangyack.

Wait, what’s that at the top?

Hmm, it’s talking about glowing 7 different LED light colors, which every weapon toy does, but it’s also showing seven RangerKeys, including a blacked-out one over the purple circle. Could this possibly be a new Go-Kaiger? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

And finally, we have the screen shots from the newest episode of Go-Kaiger! Check out Black Condor’s return:

New Super Hero Time!

And next week:

There. now we’re all completely caught up on all things Go-Kaiger. If anything else comes up, I;m putting it in a new post. ūüėõ

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. ūüėõ

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!
