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:

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 Fourze and Movie Wars MEGAMAX Mega-Post

Hey, a lot of stuff came out last week about Fourze that I just wasn’t able to cover, so now I’m going to try and go over as much of it as I can now. Let’s see what we can cover!

First, a bunch of scans:

New AstroSwitches: #21 Stealh, #22 Hammer, #23 Water (a faucet), #24 Medical (first aid kit), and #25 Pen (a writing brush).

And as far as show news goes from all of this, it looks lik we’ll see the Magnet State soon, and we might see Kamen Rider Meteor appear soon as well. And with them, come new Zodiart enemies.

And as for movie news, I think this newest plot summary could cover it:

Part 1: Beginning A meteor falls down.

The 7 Riders try and prevent Foundation X from taking SOLU. Kannagi manages to get the SOLU.

Part 2: Kamen Rider OOO

40 years into the future, Kamen Rider Poseidon declares he’s  going to become a Kamen Rider Hunter. Miharu received a new belt and  Core Medals from Kougami, found the Core Medals that disappeared at the  final episode, absorbs them and goes crazy, taking the name Poseidon. He  travels back in time through a time drift. Miharu received the Poseidon Driver because he felt he was weak and was afraid of water. Kougami  believed this belt would help him.

Kougami tells the Double Birth to fight him off, they lose. The  Prototype Driver is broken permanently. Then tells Eiji to come back to  Japan, as he’s traveling around the world trying to find the Core  Medals. At the airport, Eiji meets Ankh. They head over to Cous Cousier, Chiyoko welcomes them. Waste Yummies shows up.

Miharu and Poseidon splits apart into two different beings. Seems like  Miharu had some sort of parasitic bond with the Core Medals. Not really  explained why they split, Poseidon rampages even more. Miharu transforms  into Aqua. Eiji gives Miharu a pair of tomorrow’s underwear.

Ankh, takes the form of Eiji, as a strategy. Ankh doesn’t possess Eiji.  Together they manage to grab some Medals and Eiji goes Shauta. Aqua and Tajadoru finishes Poseidon off. Miharu returns to the future, Ankh disappears without anyone knowing. Foundation X shows up and attacks Team OOO. Grabs Poseidon’s Medals and leaves.

Part 3: Fuuto – The Secret Plot Advances

Shotaro chases after Foundation X (Supposedly a request from Eiji). Foundation X are transporting the SOLU somewhere else. While Phillip is busy researching, Shotaro transforms into Joker. As they fight, the SOLU leaks out from a capsule.

The Legendary Seven Riders are at some airport, fighting Kannagi. Kannagi overpowers them and turns them into Switches and Medals.

Part 4: Kamen Rider Fourze

Nadeshiko falls down from the sky, Gentaro catches her and falls in love.

Foundation X team up with the Zodiarts, Fourze heads out to fight. Kamen Rider Nadeshiko shows up. Sadondas shows up to retrieve Nadeshiko, Nadeshiko turns into the SOLU  Switch. Gentaro starts crying and screaming. Kamen Rider Club+Power  Dizer shows up to fight.

At the very end of part four, Eiji appears and asks for Gentaro’s help.

Part 5: Movie Wars MEGAMAX

A bunch of monsters are standing in front of Shotaro, Phillip, Eiji and Gentaro as they transform together. The three of them chase after Kannagi, they arrive at a warehouse and save the seven Riders. Fight against old monsters ensues. Special attacks are executed in a row, one after another.

Kannagi becomes Super Galaxy King by using Poseidon’s Medals and the SOLU Switch. Fourze takes Nadeshiko’s Rocket Switch and goes into Rocket States. Miharu shows up and gives Eiji the Super Core Medals. The jingle is “Super  Taka! Super Tora! Super Batta! Ta-to-ba, tatobatatoba, SU-PER!”

They fight Super Galaxy King as the medley plays. Report ends here, nothing about the conclusion was included.

Well, that didn’t quite cover all of it. We now know who the newest Foundation X members are:

The members of Foundation X who will appear in the movie are: Rem Kannagi (played by Toru Masuoka), Katal (played by Dante Carver), Solaris (played by Sanae Hitomi) and Chancellor Kiima (played by Azusa Watanabe).

Katal and Solaris are Rem’s subordinates while Chancellor Kiima is his boss. Based on the scan posted above, Katal will transform into Sadondas. It is also to note that Sanae Hitomi previously played Shion, one of the psychic soldiers of W RETURNS: Kamen Rider Eternal and is Kamen Rider Nadeshiko’s suit actress in the film.

Lastly, Azusa Watanabe is best known for role as Miyuki Ozu aka MagiMother from Mahou Sentai Magiranger.

And lastly, we now know the title of the theme song for the MEGAMAX movie:

The song is called “SAMURAI STRONG STYLE”, sung by Show Ayanocozey of Kishidan, a.k.a. DJ OZMA, and arranged by Marty Friedman. The single is slated for release December 21st. Interesting to note that the song, according to reports, is another effort to cheer up the people of Japan after the quake. “SAMURAI” stands for the Japanese people, and “STRONG STYLE” represents their fighting spirit.

And that should officially be everything now. You’re all caught up. Yay.

Movie Wars MEGAMAX Rumors and Spoilers

Hey, I know some of this is old news, but I haven’t covered it yet, so here it is.

Over the weekend and earlier this week, news, rumors, and spoilers galore came out for the upcoming movie Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO Movie Wars MEGAMAX, and the’ve so far revealed more info than can be summed up in a single paragraph(!). So let’s jumpt to it!

First off, we have a possible plot summary for for the movie, and they do contain some major spoilers. So how will the movie play out?:

Kamen Rider OOO

After a meteor fall, the evil Rider Poseidon appears from a distortion in space/time. His true identity is Miharu Minato, who fights to protect people 40 years in the future.

Miharu transforms into a killing machine and attacks the Riders from the present. Goto and Date are called by Kougami and transform into Birth again. However, against Poseidon, the double Births were in a hopeless battle…

Kamen Rider Aqua: With the power of the water, Miharu transforms into Kamen Rider Aqua to protect the world 40 years into the future. However, he receives a new belt from Kougami and becomes the evil Kamen Rider Poseidon…

Kamen Rider Fourze

A mysterious female student falls from the sky… her name is Misaki Nadeshiko! After catching her, a Zodiarts appears, and Gentaro runs and transforms into Fourze to fight against it, however, Nadeshiko transforms too and they see each other. Who is she?

The members of the Kamen Rider Club are surprised at her appearance, but accept her and decide to work together. However, Gentaro is strange… “That’s love.” Gentaro falls in love at first sight with Nadeshiko! However, Zodiarts aren’t the only ones attacking her. Foundation X, which had antagonized W in the past, also wanted to obtain her power…

Sadondas: An artificially evolved life form by Mutermite.

Fourze, OOO, W, and 7 Legendary Riders

Meteorites fall around the globe! Rem Kanagi, from Foundation X, obtains a mysterious slime and sets out to obtain Astro Switches and Core Medals.

The 7 Riders were fighting against Foundation X divisions in various countries and gather in Japan to stop his plans! On the other hand, Shotaro and Philip learn about Foundation X’s new operation too! Fourze! OOO! W! And the Glorious Seven Riders! The strongest enemy finally appears in the frontlines!

Rem Kanagi: Super evolved life form Mutermite. He hides a horrific real form!

Well, looks like their going to be twists and turns around every corner. Speaking of which, check out this pic:

At some point in the OOO movie, Ankh will use Eiji as his substitute body. As if their partnership wasn’t already weird. And with this pic came some info from a recent interview with the movie director, Koichi Sakamoto.

According to Sakamoto, there’s been a certain amount of focus on form changes in the movie. OOO, for exapmle, will include all of the major combos, with a few unsued random combos in between, but neither PuToTyra nor BuraKaWani will be used. With W, the memory changes will supposedly be better than they were in the W FOREVER movie, and Fourze’s State changes won’t be half bad, either.

Speaking of forms, chaecl out these new forms for Fourze and OOO that will appear in the movie:

These are the rumored OOO Super TaToBa combo and Fourze Double Rocket State. Some new info has come uot for the Fourze Double Rocket State, which I will include in a separate post.

Now that we’ve discussed new forms, let’s move onto the new movie Rider, Kamen Rider Aqua.

No real new info on him, but some have pointed out that his design is very heavily based off of the design of Ichigo (Kamen Rider), only with a futuristic design aspect and an aquatic theme.

And with pics of him came a new host of pics from the OOO part of the movie:

And finally, it looks like Fourze second Rider (for the series) will make an appearance in movie as well. Take a look at the new Kamen Rider Meteor:

A lot of new info has come out for this now-confirmed Rider, which will be included in a separate post.

And assuming that this doesn’t mess up again, that should be it for MEGAMAX news. If anything else pops up, I’ll let you know.

Go-Kaiger THE MOVIE Plot Revealed: No don’t go the Ghost Ship, that’s when bad stuff happens.

Two big reveals two days in a row. What are the odds? Anyway, the plot of the movie was leaked onto the internet today, so here it is:

“Any wish, just one, can be granted.”

That is the unbelievable power of the God Eye, a treasure that the Go-Kaigers are seeking. While searching for it, they run into the “Ghost Ship”, and board it. While on board, they end up coming to blows with the ship’s captain, Ghost Captain Losdark. They battle, and Losdark ends up sending the Go-Kaigers to Hell! And the only one left to fight Losdark is Go-KaiSilver! What will they do now?!

The idol group G3 Princess will appear in the movie as special guests, thanks to a “Love Call” from movie producer Watanabe. Don’t ask me what that means, but that was part of what was leaked.

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger THE MOVIE: The Flying Ghost Ship will premiere alongside Kamen Rider OOO THE MOVIE: WONDERFUL, Shogun, and 21 Core Medals on August 6th.
