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).

Kyoryuger Official Pamhplet Revealed!

Alright, we’ve already seen a million new catalogue scans, but here’s one more for good measure, and it’s the best pic of the team so far:

Okay, still a little iffy on the costumes, but we’ll move on from that for now. Anyway, here they are, mesh sleeves and all. Series premiere February 17, 2013.

Power Rangers News Galore: The Big 2-0, DVDs to kill for, and the Greatest Megazord Toy EVER! XD *UPDATED*

Hey, look whose actually posting news for a change? But enough with me ragging on myself, we’ve got more important matters to attend to. We have confirmation for Season 20, newly released DVD sets, (one of which will blow your mind), and some new official pics for Super Robot Chogokin Daizyujin (okay, that’s really Sentai news, but it’s still cool anyway). IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME!

First, and newest, we’ve got official, confirmed info about the 20th Anniversary Season of Power Rangers. According to a new report, the next season of Power Rangers will be entitled “Power Rangers MEGAFORCE”, and while no details about the next season were revealed, some tantalizing clues would seem to suggest a number of future event meant to act on the “cross-generational appeal” of the show:

Next year will mark the landmark 20th Anniversary of the Power Rangers brand, an occasion for which Saban Brands is already deep in preparation. Plans for the anniversary include a new series, “Power Rangers MEGAFORCE.”

Saban Brands plans to embrace the series’ cross-generational appeal during the anniversary by celebrating its past as well as its present and future.

Older fans will be able to participate in special events and online activities, while new products and the new show will attract younger fans.

“We’re in an exciting place as a brand. We look at the 20th anniversary not just as a celebration of the past, but as our entry into a third decade,” Dekel says.

With new series launching every two years that reinvent the brand and change its theme, Power Rangers looks to remain a force in children’s entertainment. “Just like our audience, we’re constantly reinventing ourselves,” Dekel adds. “We can honestly say that after 20 years, this isn’t a fluke – kids really do identify with and engage with this show.”

The article also talks about how Saban Brands was able to revive the Power Rangers Brand, the Brand’s new Worldwide Reach, the growth of the Paul Frank Brand (also owned by Saban), and just Saban Brand’s amazing new-found success.

Moving on to DVD news, in addition to Lionsgate Entertainment releasing episodes of Power Rangers old and new DVD, TimeLife.com is currently taking pre-orders for the soon-to-be-released Power Rangers DVD Box Set, entitled Power Rangers: From Mighty Morphin to Lost Galaxy Complete First Seven Seasons. This set includes 40 discs, with 338 episodes from the first seven season, tons of bonus material including 2 DVDs featuring rarely seen archival material; exclusive new featurettes; and interviews with the cast, creators, and fans of Power Rangers. And with each of these sets you’ll get this cool (and somewhat familiar) Mighty Morphin Red Ranger figure wearing the Dragon Shield w/ Power Sword and blaster (a rare Bandai-made figure according to the site description). And all of this can be your’s for $219.95! (Expected to ship August 6th)

Yeah, talk about sweetening the deal…

UPDATE: Official Box Art for the DVD Collection has just been released! Check it out below:

And finally, while not being completely related with Power Rangers, there is this:

Yep, it’s an official image of the Super Robot Chogokin Daizyujin, and it looks amazing. Check out these other pics below:

Known to Power Rangers fans fondly as the Megazord from MMPR, this figure stands at 140mm tall, comes with signature sword and shield, and a couple of effects parts. Note that it cannot transform into the “tank mode”, as the main priority with the Super Robot Chogokin toy line is articulation (and a very thorough level of detail). It costs 5040 yen and is expected to come out in September. While normally I avoid covering stuff like this (due to my own inability to afford stuff like this), it was worth mentioning. I mean just look at it…. not even out yet and it’s probably one of the best figure versions of Daizyujin I’ve seen yet.

UPDATE: This figure will be available from retailers in the US and Canada on October, for the price of $60.99, just in time for the start of the Power Rangers 20th Anniversary celebrations. This according to Tamashii Nations USA Facebook page.

Well, that’s it for pertinent Power Rangers news. Just a friendly reminder to those of you asking about the latest round of auditions, they’re not accepting any new applicants, better luck getting those in next time. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to talk to a web server about a DVD pre-order. 😛

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. We are hoping for a very young looking cast this season.
[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 fearless, fun and athletic. He wears his heart on his sleeve.[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 STUNNING and athletic. She is generally unflappable and tough, but has a heart of gold. A young Angelina Jolie type.

Yep, everything you’ll need for said auditions. And for my fellow toku fans, I can now hereby confirm that the 20th season of Power Rangers will be based off of Tensou Sentai Goseiger and not any later Super Sentai series like many had predicted. And because they haven’t formally announced the series yet, the show still doesn’t have an official title, though the name “Power Rangers Megaforce” was trademarked last year by Saban Brands last year, so that may still possibly be the title. Anyway, here’s a little sneak preview of what the next team of Rangers will look like:

A fitting bunch to represent the 20th Anniversary celebration of the Power Rangers franchise, don’t you think?

Anyway, some possible spoilers: This group will use card-based attacks, which will include special cards for morphing and summoning their zords. And a new twist on the zords: instead of constantly summoning new zords to create some massive thrown-together eyesore, the will summon attachable zord heads which will unlock new combinations and special moves. In the original Goseiger, they went up against three different enemy organizations, with one enemy constantly reappeaing, but they might not include all three if they don’t run it for two seasons. And yes, there is a sixth ranger, but it won’t be another teenager, or human for that matter!

Aright, enough spoilers for today. Just get out there and start sending in you resumes! That goes for all of you that have been asking about this new updated info since last June.

-M.C., the Quantum Twin

UPDATE: As of Friday, May 25th, they have stopped accepting new auditions for this next season of Power Rangers, and are now moving onto the next stage of the process, whittling down the number of applicants. Currently, they have about 50 people per role, so it will probably be awhile before we hear anything about an official cast. And yes, there has been unofficial confirmation from people auditioning that one of the roles is for a Black Ranger, confirming a Goseiger adaption. Yes, I know that some of the casting sides were straight out of Go-Kaiger episodes, but that doesn’t mean diddly squat at the moment.

Long Overdue UPDATE: To anyone still interested, I posted this story months ago, and the audition process for this future season of Power Rangers (a.k.a. Power Rangers Megaforce) has been over. The new cast has been picked and revealed already, so please, DO NOT POST ANY MORE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW! This is NOT a casting agency website, this is just an informational fan blog. I have no influence over the casting process whatsoever, I’m just a fan like the rest of you. So unless you want to get spammed like crazy, please stop leaving you personal information. And just to be clear, I have no idea when they will be auditioning for future Ranger series, so don’t ask about that either.

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!

Power Rangers Ultrapost: Samurai are Super!

Hey, there’s been a lot of Power Ranger news that’s come out over the last month, and for some reason I keep missing it! So, I’m just going to take some of the biggest headlines from the past month or so and thow them all into one Gigantor post! And coming up first we have this new poster for the the new season of PRS, Power Rangers Super Samurai!:

Yep, next season, the “Super” mode will be officially incorporated into the series, including this new Super Mega Mode. And if I’m not mistaken, I can see a new enemy in the corner. No info yet on when the next season will start.

And this poster actually came from the Power Morphicon Facebook page, who also announced the official date for Power Morphicon 2012! This year, it will take place from August 17th-19th 2012 at the Pasadena Convention Center (same location as the last), and Registration is open for anyone interested.

Speaking of Pasadena, anyone who saw this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade (and not on ABC) might have caught a glimpse of the Power Rangers Samurai Video Game float. If not, you can check out this video from the HGTV coverage of the parade:

And here’s a nice gallery of pics:

And here’s a couple of behind-the-scenes videos, one of which includes Andre from BlackNerdComedy:

Now this next part, I don’t have a decent segway for, but it was still awesome.

Yep, this happened, for 48 hours on Nicktoons back on the 6th (January 2012), and I’m assuming it was awesome since I couldn’t watch it because we had downgrade our cable package literally the week of. My life sucks sometimes…

BTW they have been playing that on there regularly as well, so go check it out if you can! Because I can’t. 😦

Now let’s move onto some newer news thst came out while I was working on this ultra-post!

Mainly, Kimberly Crossman has been 100% CONFIRMED to play a future Red Ranger Role! YAY!! This confirmation via a recent video post on Carlos Pena’s YouTube Channel (Carlos Pena from Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush) where she comes on and outright says it, though she does keep us in the dark about the details. You can check out the whole video below (though I can’t guarantee you’ll be that impressed):

So yeah, there’s that. And then there’s this:

Yep, this is the cover of the latest issue of Hyper Hobby Magazine, which your going to see a lot of as I do more of these ultra-posts, and the portion of it that I want to cover here is this: while full translations of this are STILL not available, we can confirm that Toei did discuss the 20th Anniversary of Power Rangers, and those discussions included possibly re-shooting the Legend War scene from the opening of Go-Kaiger with teams from MMPR onward. Whether the 20th season of Power Rangers will be the Go-Kaiger adaption is anyone’s guess. But that’s still big news, though I wouldn’t expect any adaptions of the movies to be quite as spectacular as the Go-Kaiger movies have been so far.

And that should be about everything, barring nothing comes out in the next five minutes. If anything else pops up, I make no guarantees, but I’ll try to let you know.

GIANT STEP Preview: Setting Fire to the States

Here’s the official preview for the new song “GIANT STEP” by the ASTRONAUTS )formed by anime singer May’n and former SURFACE vocalist Shiina Yoshiharu). It was Fourze’s first insert/battle theme song. Check out the preview below:

The Astronaut’s GIANT STEP will be released January 25th, and will include the Climax Heroes Fourze theme song “Endless Play” on the CD’s b-side (wow, they seem to neglect the b-side nowadays).

Superhero Taisen, The New Spring Tradition?: Spring Crossover Movies to be the new norm.

You know it, I know it. The biggest bit of toku news this month is, without a doubt, the announcement of the tokufan wet dream crossover movie, the tenatively titled Superhero Taisen. The movie, which is planned to feature the ultimate franchise crossover between Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, would feature 40+ Riders, represented by Heisei 10th Anniversary Rider Decade, and 200+ Sentai Rangers (alright, I give in) represented by 35th Anniversary Sentai Go-Kaiger. Well, recently ca3 blog recently posted an excerpt from an article on this year’s 40th issue of Otona Fami magazine which gives fans some idea of how the movie will play out.

Basically, the movie plot centers around Kamen Rider Decade, whose series featured nearly every Rider in Rider history, getting in a big fight with Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger, who’ve transformed into nearly every Sentai Ranger in Sentai history.

Of course, the movie will also feature Kamen Rider Fourze, Den-O with all the Imajins, and the next Sentai, Tokumei Sentai Gobuster. And from now on, there will be regular Spring Hero Movies, though not neccesarily a crossover movie like this (we’ll have to see how well this movie does).

Filming for the movie starts at the end of this month (December 2011) and the movie is set to premiere early May 2012.

Movie Wars MEGAMAX Mega-Post: Whose #1? They’re #1!

Well, definitely putting this off for way too long. Here’s everything MEGAMAX from the past week!

First things first, Kamen Rider X Kamen Rider Movie Wars MEGAMAX debuted last weekend at #1 at the Japanese Box Office! The movie premiered on 301 screens, attracting 333,133 viewers that earned the film an initial ¥378,422,200! It beat Real Steel, the boxing mecha movie starring Hugh Jackman which was tipped to be a hit in Japan. Big props to them.

And here’s a short “making-of” special, which features cast interviews and a few behind-the-scenes shot:

And next up, one lucky 4chan anon was able to sit in on the movie, and he posted a fairly long summary there, so we’ll just use a shorter one written by UkiyaSeed:

The movie kicks off with meteorites bombarding the planet. The Kamen Rider Club sees this and has no idea what is going on. In various parts of the world, teams from the Foundation X organization organize to start collecting mercury-like samples from the various meteors; but every time they do, a Showa Rider is there to stop them.
The Double Riders, Riderman, V3, X, Amazon, and Stronger show up in various parts of the world, though they only manage to stop them some of the time; Stronger’s target gets away, for example. Two notable rocks fall; one outside Fuuto, and one outside Eiji’s city, in the water.

The Kougami Foundation sends scientists to investigate, but as they do so, a massive black hole appears over the harbor, and a strange new Rider shows up; this is Kamen Rider Poseidon. He fights everyone, ignores bullets and as he’s walking away, Cakeboss, on a damaged TV screen, wishes him HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Gotou is summoned to Cakeboss’ office. He receives a briefing from Cakeboss; basically, he’s been designing more Core Medals, since all of OOO’s broke, and he’s… well, Cakeboss. Desire and all that. The thing is, the Rider that showed up has 3 of the medals Cakeboss was in the process of designing. They haven’t been finished yet. Weird.

Cut to Satonaka picking up Hina, and the two discussing the situation. Hina says that Eiji’s been traveling the world, looking for ways to fix Ankh I think was said; but before they can discuss further, they’re interrupted by a horde of Broken Yummys. Apparently that faggot from the black hole has been making them. Satonaka kicks a heck of it, stopping the car and going all Waif Fu on them. Thing is, even with her kickass kung fu, she can’t hold off the whole horde, and soon they start to menace Hina, surrounding her…
And then suddenly, Eiji appears out of nowhere, and he apparently learned Kung Fu from Terui, because he tears the heck out of these dudes. The BBEG decides now’s a good time to show up, Poseidon appearing with his spear and making explosions that make actors fly around.
Thankfully, suddenly, Date appears, on a motorcycle, jumping off to ram the Rider with it (It get slashed in half, btw). Satonaka tosses him Proto-Birth and, wouldn’t you guess it, Poseidon hands him his butt. Thankfully, Gotou to the rescue! Then Gotou AND Date get their butts kicked, and Proto Birth is actually destroyed utterly by a spear to the belt. It moves to go finish off Gotou…

And suddenly, Eiji backstabs it, shoving his right hand into the Poseidon’s back. It screams, and Eiji pulls out 3 Core Medals (TaToBa, of course), and says, “Now, Eiji!” But wait, isn’t that Eiji?! No, instead, on his hand… is Ankh!
Ankh!Eiji tosses the medals back, to… a real Eiji, who plants his stick+Tomorrow’s Undies into the earth, catches the medals, and transforms!
OOO and the Poseidon got to TOWN on each other, Ankh and Eiji swapping out combos of medals to harry and harass the guy. I believe Beetle+Tiger+Condor, Shark+Gorilla+Cheetah, and others are used, and Eiji uses all three medals in each set before Poseidon retreats.
Of course, Hina is very shocked. Eiji mentions that it’s kinda creepy for Ankh to look like him, Ankh shoots back that it FEELS creepy to look like Eiji, and changes back into the Ankh we all know and love.

Everyone returns to Cous Coussier, except for Date and Gotou who go to the Hospital. Apparently Eiji saw Ankh at a Japanese airport, and the two grouped up to head back. Eiji squeezes his pocket for a second, before Chiyoko gives Ankh some ice candy. Ankh acts like a faggot, they argue, and Hina interrupts the two and tells them to play nice. In this scene, Eiji also realizes he forgot Tomorrow’s Undies.
The slapstick is interrupted by… more half Yummies. Chiyoko evacuates the customers, while Eiji and Ankh smack the heck out of the Half yummies and smashes up Cous Coussier to do it.

They chase them out to find Poseidon outside. I neglected to mention the Evil Rider had a human form; he transforms from it into the Poseidon. Eiji notices something about his earlier fight, and decides to try what Hina did earlier to talk him down. Ankh calls him stupid, but tries to save Eiji anyways when he tries approaching Poseidon untransformed, peacefully. They both get their butts kicked, and Poseidon is about to kill Eiji when he stops, and regains control of himself, turning back into a human.
At a warehouse, Poseidon’s human form, Miharu explains. He’s from the future. In the future, Kougami 40 years from now gave him a Rider Belt to fight baddies, but while he was doing so, at some point, a wormhole opened from the past, and tons of Cell Medals and Core Medals were forced onto him, turning him into a Greeed.

He is referring, of course, to the wormhole in Episode 49 of OOO; those Cell Medals had to go someplace.
Ankh laughs at this kid for being a loser, Eiji slapsticks, Hina is about to Slapstick, but since her slapstick involves a heavy crate to Ankh’s head, Eiji stops her.
They camp out for the night, and as Ankh is sleeping, Miharu, re-possessed by the Medals in him, approaches Ankh to rob him. Ankh opens his eyes when he’s about to get attacked, and says, “Eiji, now.”
Eiji grapples him, and Hina turns him into OOO Sagohzo Combo. Ankh and Eiji have a plan; While Miharu is restrained, Ankh proceeds to start tearing Core Medals out of him. After the second batch, the Greeed growing inside Mizuno decides it’s had enough of it, and separates from Miharu, taking its special Medals and retreating.
The next morning, Eiji’s ready to head off, saying goodbye to Hina, who, as a parting present, gives him… a pair of underwear.
Emboldened, Eiji is about to leave, but Miharu asks, as a Rider to Rider; how is Eiji so strong? And Miharu, so weak, he can’t even imagine being as strong as Eiji is, ready to risk it all, etc etc. Eiji replies “Well, my grandfather said that the most important thing is that you have TOMORROW’S underwear.”
Amidst Miharu’s confusion, Eiji explains; it’s about preparing for tomorrow; working towards a tomorrow. A tomorrow where everyone has butts to wear underwear with, butts that haven’t been kicked by Evil’s nasty foot. Or some kind of nice analogy. Eiji gives Miharu Tomorrow’s Undies, and walks off with Ankh.

Ankh and Eiji encounter Poseidon at a harbor and talks about desire. OOO is out to stop Poseidon and starts fighting him. OOO Tajadol Combo fights Poseidon until he retreats into the water. Eiji is tossed with the OOO Shauta Medals and jumps after him. And yes, “Shout Out” begins to play.
The two do battle underwater for a bit, but Poseidon decides that the high ground on TOP of the water is better than trying to fight OOO Shauta in the water. Eiji is forced out by some attack, and this is when Satonaka, Date, and Gotou show up as backup. Satonaka fights an army of half-yummies, Date and Gotou attacks Poseidon with their jetskis. Date and Gotou get pawned, however.

However, another backup arrives; Miharu, with a change of heart! He transforms into Kamen Rider Aqua, on his own special jetski he uses to attack Poseidon, smashing it repeatedly and dancing circles around it.
Anyways, Poseidon is forced on land and was defeated by a Double Rider Kick made by Kamen Rider OOO Tajadol Combo and Kamen Rider Aqua! After Poseidon’s defeat, the group is relaxing, having won the day. Mizuno says goodbye to Hina and Eiji, and that he’ll do his best in the future, etc etc. Ankh smiles, and Miharu leaves.
When Hina turns around to talk to Eiji, however, Ankh is gone. Hina’s confused, then saddened; where did he go? Eiji shows Hina the broken Core Medals, and says that back in the Cafe, he knew; the Broken Hawk Core Medal that was Ankh’s was still broken. Ankh, it seems, had come from the Future, except willingly, to help Eiji.
Hina is almost VERY saddened, but then Eiji points out; this means that, in the end, Eiji succeeded in saving Ankh and bringing him back. After all, he’s there in the future, right? Together, they CAN and WILL save him, so there’s hope that their close frenemy will return.
This special, touching moment is interrupted by a surprise attack. As Eiji and Hina are struggling to pick themselves up from the explosion, the BBEG from the Foundation X approaches, laughs, picks up Poseidon’s Medals from the ground, gloats and leaves.

Meanwhile in Futo, Shotaro is chasing a Foundation X van and a truck, harassing them with his bike. He eventually pulls in front of them, forcing both to skid and stop. He gets off, telling them they drive dangerously. They get out, carrying some kind of case filled with that stuff they’ve been sampling from around the globe. Several of them turn into Masquerade Dopants, and two self-yummy, cranking out a couple of Yummies too.
Shotaro tells Philip it’s time to roll… but Philip is busy… looking up… something. On one hand, he’s prolly investigating Foundation X, but he says something about Aomori while smiling, so he could just be looking something stupid. Shotaro pulls up his Lost Driver and transformed into Kamen Rider Joker!

The case with the meteor stuff breaks, and pours down a sewer drain. Shotaro’s annoyed, and wonder where it went. Meanwhile, the Showa Riders find Foundation X’s hideout, and bust in, confronting the BBEG. The BBEG taunts them, then activates his own trap; electromagnets, screwing with all of the Showa Riders, trapping them.
Meanwhile in Amanogawa High, IT’S CULTURE FESTIVAL TIME! Kisaragi’s walkin’ around when he’s stopped by a very poorly disguised Ohsugi being a fortune teller. He predicts about a girlfriend in the future, which interestes Gen… but then he puts up pictures of himself and that one pretty teacher (Who never shows up in the movie). Gen calls him a wierd old man, they yell at each other, then Yuki shows up and tells Gen he’s mega late.

Mega late… for the Kamen Rider Club presentation! They’re raising awareness of Kamen Riders by wearing silly cardboard costumes of the Seven in the movie. They go through the presentation, getting laughed at, but have to stop midway because JK is missing. They find JK in a classroom who finds the presentation boring. The group quibbles a bit, but they hear something going on outside and go out.
A girl is scene falling from the sky! Gen runs out and catches her, and is suddenly enamored by how pretty she is. But she’s unconscious, so she goes to the Nurse’s room. Why is the Nurse’s room open on a Cultural Festival day? Who knows, Kengo’s prolly got Keys.

A peek at her wallet indicates her name is Nadeshiko Misaki. She wakes up, and again, Gentaro is striken by how friggin cute she is. Throughout the majority of the movie, she really only says what other people say, and is very quiet and observant. Keep that in mind.
Suddenly, Dustards appear! Cue another out-of-suit fight scene (These happen alot this movie), where Gentaro fights through the entire school, untransformed, as the KR Club chases students off. Gentaro eventually gets to an isolated location with his girlie, and transforms.

The girl is QUITE interested in this. After Gentaro smacks a few dudes around, she suddenly ALSO pulls out a belt; it looks much like Gen’s, except with only 2 slots; right and left arm. The switches are Rocket and Radar. She transforms as well, and fights alongside him. Very girly fighting, but very well done. Gen is also hypnotized by her brilliant skills.
The fight goes outside, and suddenly, a higher tier Zodiart appears! The higher tier Zodiart is the Virgo Zodiarts. Gentaro fights it, and gets whapped around. Elec is used but doesn’t stop it, even with a Limit Break. He uses Rocket at some point, and Nadeshiko thinks that’s a great idea, whipping out rocket as well.
The two proceed to Double Rocker Punch her. They stop, the club talks about the new girl and Gentaro’s sudden attraction to her (They talk from a bit away, Miu thinks it’s cute and snubs Shun when he tries to capitalize on the mood), but before they can decide what to do about it, Nadeshiko drags Gen off.

Gen takes Nadeshiko on a date. They go eating (She literally slurps up some meat buns), they go on a Ferris Wheel, and when she says she wants to go higher, he takes her to a building roof. She tries to shake his hand once or twice during this, but Gen, confused by his new feelings, shys away from it each time.
Since she wants to go higher still, he takes her to the Rabbit Hutch. Anyways, in the Rabbit Hutch, the two go into space. This time, they actually get a accidental hug, and they lean into kis- bonk. Lol spacesuits. Nadeshiko decides this is in the way for some reason, and removes her helmet. Gentaro goes “Oh, okay, sure,” and is about halfway through removing his helmet when he goes “waitasecond”
One analysis later, and Kengo confirms; Nadeshiko isn’t human, she’s some of that space muck, mimicking what it sees. Gen doesn’t want to hear about it, and it sucks even more when Nadeshiko repeats it (Cause she does that). He runs off to sulk.
Yuki and Nozoma go to cheer Gentaro up by a riverside. Rather, Yuki tries to, sitting down and talking to him, while Nozoma stands around being creepy i.e. herself. She tells him more or less to do what he feels is right, and he decides, after her cute little pep talk.
Meanwhile, Kengo is about to hand Nadeshiko, in a bottle, to Foundation X, when Gen shows up, Yuki and Nozoma following, and yoinks the bottle, talking about how she’s real to him, etc etc, even while Kengo’s trying to convince him out of it. Eventually, his love inspires Nadeshiko to hop out of the bottle and they handshake.

Foundation X, however, has had enough of it. They take Nadeshiko by force, shoving her in a van and kicking it out of everyone but Shun and Gentaro. Gen LEAPS ON THE VAN, forces his way inside, and gets into a fistfight inside of it, not stopping until a Foundation X baddy kicks him through the van doors, knocking the doors OFF the van in the process, and Gentaro onto the street.
Suddenly, Kengo shows up, on the Fourze bike! He says that even though she’s not human, he understands, go kick their butts. Gentaro thanks him, gets on that bike, and chases the Van down, forcing it off the road because he’s freakin’ Kamen Rider.
One of the Foundation X baddies had enough of this. He transforms into Sadonas. Gentaro and Shun tag team it, managing to free Nadeshiko, who transforms as well; Gentaro and Nadeshiko Double Rocket Rider Kick Sadonas!

The BBEG apparently has super sucking powers and pulls Nadeshiko into a chokehold, stabbing her with a needle that drains her into a bottle, all while she screams for Gentaro.
Gentaro is despairing now, even as the dragon comes back for round two and the BBEG makes his escape. The rest of the Kamen Rider Club does its best to fight off the Dragon; Yuki, Miu, and Nozoma toss the Foodroids, Shun attacks in the Power Dizer, and Kengo attacks wiht the bike, but it creams ALL of them. Even JK tries to help and gets stomped.
Gentaro is finally inspired by his friends, for one last stand. He rises, and, with EVERYONE counting down, transforms. Fire States, and he goes to TOWN on that dragon, eventually owning it with a limit break.
The group recuperates, Kengo finding a large Rocket switch on the ground; Number S-1, Super One dropped by Nadeshiko when she was captured. Before the group can catch their breath, however, suddenly, on a Ride Vendor, Eiji arrives. Gen’s eager to help him; after all, Kamen Riders help each other, right?
One last thing on Fourze: At some point during that half of the movie, I forget when exactly, the Chairman meets the BBEG. He’s selling switches, but the BBEG wants ASTRO switches, not ZODIART switches. There’s some threat swapping, and then the scene ends after one of the Chairmen’s Zodiarts appears.

Fourze, W, and OOO meet up in a parking lot. After introductions, and some Gentaro/Shotaro joking (Philip says they’re both ‘taros’, Shotaro gets pissed that it’s said they’re similar, Gentaro does his whole frendship thing, they stare off and eventually Shou goes “HAHA I LIKE YOU! YOU GOT SPUNK!”), Shotaro explains for the people who didn’t see Kamen Rider W what’s Foundation X’s deal. They agree to work together, since after all, they’re Riders, right? Then Foundation X arrives.
The four higher ups accompanying the BBEG transform into four Zodiarts that Gen’s beaten before (First four, specifically) and Shotaro and Philip transform to fight them. Gentaro and OOO follow suit in one of the most badass transformation scenes I’ve ever seen (Humorously, when Gentaro shouts 宇宙キターーーーーー!, Shoutarou is startled, asking Gen what’s wrong and Gen acts like everything is normal).

Shotaro promises to hold off the Foundation X members, (After all, he says back to Eiji, Riders help each other, right?), and Eiji and Fourze run off to stop the BBEG, Gentaro thanking “Senpai.” They also smash through two freakin’ Apache Choppers.
There’s a fight scene where W beats the SNOT out of the four Zodiarts, using CJ/HM/LT and a second half later where he uses Xtreme. W-B-X plays in the background. Glorious.
Fourze and OOO reach the BBEG, who is getting on a giant freakin’ space plane. The BBEG regards them with annoyance and sics the mooks on them. They proceed to get dogpiled by 50+ mooks from the three shows.

OOO and Fourze proceed to Dynasty warriors the heck out of theme. Every OOO Combo is used, every Fourze switch is used. And I mean EVERY fourze switch. Everything except for I think Smoke, Flash and Parachute.
You haven’t seen awesome til Gen kicks a dude with Gatling’s leg, then shoots other dudes with the leg while it’s planted in the first bad guy’s chest. Or uses Magic Hand and Hopping to clear entire waves. Or until Tatoba Kick nukes an entire horde of minions.
OOO manages to catch a break, and Aqua returns, giving Gentaro three medals; TaToBa, with golden inlays, however. They’re from the future. Meanwhile, Gentaro finds three medals and 4 switches; one for each rider that was captured.

As OOO and Fourze reunite, a line up of bad guys appear; Terror, Smilodon, Clay Doll, Red Nasca, the Four Greeeds appear. Thankfully, Fourze comes with switches and medals. He gives the medals to OOO, and they both use them with a Scanning Charge/Limit Break. This in turn CREATES the riders; they were sealed in the Switches/Medals!
The Showa Riders thank the two, and say they’ll stay to hold off these punks while Eiji and Gen go after the BBEGs. A few thanks later and Fourze is Rocket+Drill LIMIT BREAKing after the rocket ship, OOO screaming in terror and holding onto Fourze’s hand for dear life.

They smash their way in, where the BBEG reveals his weapon; a belt, with 3 slots for the future medals, and a switch slot for… Nadeshiko. Gen, understandably, is pissed, and the two riders do battle with the BBEG, who STOMPS them.
The BBEG opens a side door, throwing Fourze out, and starts kicking the crap out of OOO. Cut to Fourze, about to fall to his death, when Shun saves him, catching him in the Power Dizer and swinging him about until the momentum dies. Using the Power Dizer, Shun launches Gentaro back after the spaceplane, which is beginning to leave the atmosphere.

Back inside the ship, OOO has had enough of this. Eiji uses the future medals, transforming into OOO Super Tatoba Combo! It’s actually much cooler in motion, and Eiji tears the hell out of the BBEG with it. “What is that?!” “The medals of the future!”
Fourze manages to claw his way back onto the ship, him and OOO giving each other one last peptalk on a fin before the two make their way to the top of the space plane. By now, it’s left the atmosphere. Fourze changes to SUPER ROCKET, and the final battle begins.

At some point, the Showa Riders and Aqua all get Rider Kicks (Or a Big Slice). They’re actually really cool, they modernized the effects really well while keeping them oldschoolcool.
There’s a fight, Fourze getting blasted by UNLIMITED COSMIC ENERGY… but the blast that should blow his stuff back into the atmosphere instead is stopped, Nadeshiko’s returning feelings to Gen saving him from damage. Gentaro drops a spinning rocket attack into the BBEG, smashing his sword apart.

With a last LIMIT BREAK and SCANNING CHARGE, the two unleash their final attacks, Eiji’s SEIYA and Gen’s battle cry resounding above the earth, their kicks blowing the heck out of the stunned BBEG. The ship begins to fall to earth, and the credits start to roll; but there’s still threads to wrap up.
Gentaro and Nadeshiko talk, in that psuedo-newtype space kinda thing. Nadeshiko’s grateful and very happy that she met Gen, thank you, etc etc. Gen moves to give her a hug or a handshake I forget, but then the screen pans down as she leans in way too close for a handshake.
In reality, Gentaro and Eiji fall, popping Tajadol and Parachute as they return to earth. Scene cuts go to Gotou and Date and Chiyoko at Cous. Chiyoko takes her ruined shop rather well; it’s always a new beginning, for her, and she quickly rounds the two men up into fixing the place up for the new theme.

Eiji and Hina reminisce. Their earlier conversation is somewhat repeated; they can, they will, save Ankh. It’s already been proven, and their future is protected by a fellow Kamen Rider. A happy ending, and they’ll continue to work for a future they both want, with their friend, Ankh.
Goddamn, how hard was it for me to write that with a straight face? But Ankh really is a bro, I guess; who the hell would go through a wormhole just to help you out, you know? Regardless, Eiji and Hina end the movie happy.
Gentaro is at a train station with the rest of the Kamen Rider Club when he sees a girl that looks JUST like Nadeshiko. I guess that makes sense; she musta copied her. He can’t help but watch her while she walks right by him; and ignores him.
For a moment, Gentaro simply looks down, overwhelmed in his own, quiet little way. And then he sees the whole Kamen Rider Club, as a group, do his double-chest-bump and point motion, to him, smiling… and he smiles back, returning the gesture.

I guess having your heart broken is as much a part of the Spirit of Youth as throwing crap in the river, huh, Gentaro? And thus the movie ends. Oh, there’s a little snippet of Meteor, and him doing some stuff… that is fighting some Foundation X members!
His alternate powers seem to be planet based, and on his wrist. He had a switch on his wrist he used to cover his hand with freakin’ SATURN. Like, a saturn replica with razor rings. Don’t know what they do, but it looked pretty cool. He untransformed and said some confrontational stuff about Fourze/the KRC.

Believe it or not, this is shorter than the original. And remeber, not my summary, someone else’s language here.

Anyway, it is appropriate that this massive spoiler ends with Meteor, because we have some news on him as well. It turns out that the “mysterious transfer student” in the movie IS Kamen Rider Meteor, and he is played by Yoshizawa Ryo, this guy:

Yay, we were right the first time!

According to new roles, Yosizawa will play Ryuusei (Japanese for Meteor), a transfer student to Amanogawa High, who will make his debut in Ep.17, which should be the first episode of the new year!

Anyway, that should be it for MEGAMAX news for now. If anything else pops up, I’ll be sure to let you know!

SEEYA! UCHU KITAAAAAAAAAAAA!
