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.

OOO crew starts filming for MEGAMAX: Getting the gang back together!

Well, it looks like filming for the next Rider Wars movie Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider OOO & Fourze Movie Wars MEGAMAX has begun, and we have a collection of blog posts and cast pics to prove it!

Here, we can see Arisue Mayuko (Erika Satonaka) taking a short break from filming. Confirmation that filming had begun came from her, Watanabe Shu (Eiji/OOO), Takada Riho (Hina), and Miura Ryosuke (Shingo/Ankh). And while neither Iwanaga Hiroaki (Date Akira/First Kamen Rider Birth) or Kimijima Asaya (Gotou/Second Kamen Rider Birth) have posted anything themselves, they have started filming as well (and they’re both pictured below):

Oh no, Gotou stole Date’s beard! And he’s cleverly adding it to his face piece by piece!

I guess it was time for their daily ice cream.I wonder what Ankh would think…

Well, since he seems to be getting his hair done in the Ankh style, I may yet het an answer! He posted this picture of himself on his blog. and given the hair and make-up (and ignoring the grey shirt with the shiny bowtie), it looks like Ankh is due to make a return in the movie!

While we still don’t know anything about the movie yet, at least these pics are cool.

Reverse/Re:Birth PV: Date & Gotou Version

A new version of the music video for the song “Reverse/Re:Birth” has been released, this time featuring the version of the song sung by both Iwanaga Hiroaki and Kimijima Asaya as Date Akira and Gotou Shintaro (respectivly). Okay, so it’s the same music video with a new audio track, but you can still watch it anyway:

What do you think? Do you prefer this version, or the “Gotou solo” version?

Personally, I prefer this one. The song feels a bit more balanced, more complete. Well, that’s how I feel, what about you?

Reverse/Re:Birth PV: Solo Round!

Alright, the official music video for the Kamen Rider Birth character song “Reverse/Re:Birth” is out, a day before the official CD release of the song might add. Enjoy!:

This video is based off of the “Gotou solo” version of the song, which is why it primarily feautures Gotou singing and running around in his new outfit. If a version of this video featuring both of them singin and actively participating shows up, I’ll be sure to post it.

The single comes out tomorrow, July 27th, and will be available in either CD or CD+Music Video DVD editions.

OOO TaJaDoru and Birth theme MV preview: It’s music day at henshinhead.wordpress.com!

Well, since my last post (which was published five minutes age when I started on this post), I’ve managed to find music video previews for both “Time Judged All”, the TaJaDoru combo theme, and “Reverse/Re:Birth”, Kamen Rider Birth’s theme song. Luckily, they were all uploaded to YouTube by the same guy, kamen000xxx. So let’s see them!

First up, we have the “Time Judged All”, staring Watanabe Shu and Miura Ryosuke:

And here’s “Reverse/Re:Birth”, staring Iwanaga Hiroaki and Kimijima Asaya, with Arisue Mayuko making a special appearance:

Double the Birth, double the fun. Am I right, background dancers wearing the top hats?

“Time Judged All” will be released as part of the Kamen Rider OOO Full Combo Collection CD on July 27th, which features full versions of all of the combo songs. “Reverse/Re:Birth” will be released as a single on July 27th as well. Both will be released in CD and CD+DVD versions, with the Combo Collection featuring the full music video for “Time Judged All” and the Birth album featuring the full music video for “Reverse/Re:Birth”.

UPDATE: Just realized that I embedded the first video twice. That’s been corrected.

New Date Akira BM figure: Oh, will you stop giggling?!

So, it looks like Date has his own BM figure now, though it seems a little late since he stopped being Birth about two weeks ago. But it is still a very cool, very lifelike figure. Even actor Iwanaga Hiroaki, who played Date Akira/Kamen Rider Birth, was very pleased by the way it turned out. Let’s take a look, shall we?:

It’s almost creepy to look at. Anyway, this figure comes with Date in his signature look, the BirthDriver, the BirthBuster, his “milk can” full of cell medals, and interchangeable hands.

“I’m gonna make, ‘this much’, in sales!”

And here is Iwanaga with the Date figure. I’m guessing that he’s very pleased with the results. Who would want so see themselves in action figure form?

Mediacom’s Project BM Date Akira is set for release February 2012, with the pricetag of 18,690 yen.

While this is just fantastic, you’ll save a lot more money just getting the standard Birth figure. I’ll let the hardcore collectors rush out to get this.
