Ultraman SAGA Movie RAW:

Full review when subs are available. I got to tell you, this is probably the first Ultraman-related thing I’ve seen or heard in months. Tsuburaya really needs to get the TV series relaunched, before Toei decides to relaunch the Metal Hero series and just completely takes over the market.

UPDATE: Okay, so that first video’s sound goes out about 33 minutes in, and doesn’t really come back on, so now we have a newly uploaded RAW for you to watch. I’ll still keep the first one up though, just in case one of these videos disappears (and because the second one stops just before the closing credits). Check out that video below:

Yeah, no way I could get around NOT posting this: Kamen Rider Vs. Super Sentai Movie Announced! (Last Week…)

Last Sunday, December 4th, we, the members of tokusatsu fandom, recieved what is perhaps some of the greatest news we have yet to recieve. The ultimate fan fantasy crossover movie was announced, between the Kamen Rider and Super Sentai franchises. Tenatively called “Superhero Taisen”, this movie will feature as it’s leads Kamen Rider Decade and Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger.

And along with those two, the movie will also feature all 40 Kamen Riders (up to and through Fourze), and over 200 Sentai Senshi (up to and through Gobuster).

Confirmed cast includes Inoue Masahiro (Kadoya Tsukasa/Decade), Ozawa Ryota (Captain Marvelous/Go-KaiRed), Akiyama Rina (Naomi from Den-O), Ishimaru Kenjiro (Owner/Stationmaster from Den-O), and Momotaros. and the director confirmed for this epic EPIC movie is Kaneda Osamu. Filming begins later this month (December 2011).

Producer Shirakura says, “In the year after the anniversary we’re not going to power down but cross it…. We want to show things you can’t see in the regular shows. This was pretty close to impossible but I’d like to make it the norm for our spring films. Rider is science, sentai is magic.”

Well, I always thought it was sorta the other way around, but really they’re both in this weird pseudo-scientific fantasy area at this point. But the real point I’d like to get at is this:
This is without a doubt the greatest movie announcement EVER, and I can’t wait to see it. Period. I may invent time travel solely to see this movie.

And I’m not the only one who has anything to say about it either, because Inoue Masahiro also talked about this on his blog shortly after the announcement. Here’s what he had to say:

So, recently I was going through my old photos and thinking, “It sure was fun when I was working on Kamen Rider….”  And now, all of a sudden, I get to do it again!   This one is even bigger than last time–it looks like a lot of fun!

The kids don’t talk about Decade much anymore so I was starting to get kind of lonely, lol.  He’s still passing through!

I’m going to have fun but still give it my all.  If only one person sees it or a lot of people see it, I’ll be happy either way!

I can’t write much yet so I’ll stop for now, lol.  It would be great if I could get to do some action again!

The movie is expected to come out March 2012. I may fly to Japan to see it.

Clash of the Red Rangers Review

Okay, so the new Power Rangers Samurai TV movie “Clash of the Red Rangers” debuted just a couple of hours ago (when I started writing this post), and so far, I’m not sure what to make of it.

On first watch, they seem to be pulling from three different sources to make this special. First, and most obvious, was Shinkenger vs. Go-Onger, only with just RPM Ranger Red making an appearance, and then mixed in with that was the Shinkenger movie, mostly using a re-shot version of the major battle scene and the battle against the now-named General Gut, and what should have been the reveal of the Shark zord/Shark Attack Ranger (Kyoryu Origami/Hyper Shinkenger) but was instead revealed in the Double Red Ranger fight scene, and a random episode which was originally where Kotoha/ShinkenYellow first used the Super Shinkenger power (it was the scene where the Samurai Rangers first come in).

Basic plot summary: The RPM Rangers are still fighting the robot hordes (a.k.a. Venjix) that nearly destroyed humanity, when one bad guy named Professor Cog escapes from his dimension into the Samurai Ranger’s dimension, with RPM Ranger Red on his tail. After seeing the new Samurai Rangers in action, he makes a deal with Master Xandred to eliminate the Rangers in exchange for Sanzu River water, which he plans on using to poison the water supply in the RPM dimension. When he sends out his Grinders to take out the Samurai Rangers, that’s when RPM Ranger Red shows up. He tells the Samurai Rangers that his name is Scott, and that he came from his dimension to stop Professor Cog while he’s in the Samurai Ranger’s dimension. After a fight with the Professor and his Grinder minions, the team is transported by Cog to the RPM dimension, leaving the two Reds who’ve been poisoned by Cog’s hypno-bolts. Both sides regroup, where we see Xandred and General Gut talking about a Mooger army build-up they’ve been planning since before Professor Cog showed up. The next day, with Jayden and Scott growing more and more hostile towards each other, they set off to fight a combined Mooger/Grinder horde, only to start fighting each other. Their fight ends with a fake-out, using the same trick Professor Cog had pulled in Scott in his dimension, and together they wipe out the Moogers and the Grinders using the Samurai’s yet-to-be-revealed Shark Attack and Super Modes. That’s when the others finally return and help them take out Professor Cog and a Nighlock ordered to assist him. After that, they charge into a battle with General Gut and a swarm of Moogers, with RPM Ranger Red and Samurai Gold Ranger fighting from a Red Convertible (it was a Mustang, but they can’t use brand names on Power Rangers for legal reasons). They take out General Gut with Jayden going into Shark Attack Mode, and then finish him off using the new Shark Zord. After which, the Samurai Rangers see Scott off to his dimension, while hinting at a possible upcoming romance between Mike and Emily. 😉

My review: Let me start out by saying that I had started on this post yesterday, shortly after it had premiered, and my impression of it has since changed. If I had published the review I was working on yesterday, then all you would have read was a scathing, nit-picky, dare I say fanboy-esque review, in which I just constantly pointed out every little flaw and complained about every little incongruency with the story, and you all would have probably called me out for it. But since then, I’ve had a chance to see the special again, and rethink my position on certain things, and if I’m honest, it wasn’t half bad considering all the things they had working against them.

For example, we all would have like to seen Eka Darville in person, at least for a one scene, but he couldn’t be there, so we’ll just have to make due with his voice over. One thing I really don’t get though, if they did that just for him, then why not just replace everyone else that couldn’t show with suit actors and give them some kind of voice double, like the very obvious one they had for Steven Skyler/Antonio. They’ve had Ari Boyland on there voicing a Nighlock, I’m sure he could have come in to voice his parts. And I know they needed to fill time by replacing the missing scenes in the movie (Megazord battle with Professor Cog on the Moon, the Goseiger fight scene, etc.), but why use the Shinkenger movie scenes? That just threw off the whole plot line of the movie. Sure, you needed a way to formally introduce the Shark Zord, but why didn’t they just do it in another special? And I’m just ranting again.

Overall, I’d say this was a good special, given the special conditions. Would I say it was the best Samurai has had to offer so far? No. But I do think that the best is waiting just around the corner. After all, there are a lot of big things waiting for us in season two.

Still wish they could have done more with this one. Maybe next time, with whichever two series they decide to make a crossover for, they’ll be able to get a hold of the actors from the previous season before they go off and get new acting jobs.

Kamen Rider Movie Wars MEGAMAX New Movie Poster and Rumors.

Hey look! More old news! A new movie poster for the upcoming movie Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO Movie Wars MEGAMAX is out, and we have a new plot summary for the movie as well. So let’s get to it.

First off, here’s the new poster:

This time, all of the Riders that appear in the movie are featured, including W, Nadeshiko, Aqua, and the Legendary Seven.

And now we move onto the new plot summary, this one coming from the OCN Animation Blog. It verifies that the movie will be divided into five parts, with OOO, Fourze, and even W getting their own chapters. Here’s the new story:

Chapter 1: Beginning
Meteorites fell from space all over the world. Stuck to those meteorites is a mysterious substance called SOLU. These 7 Riders get into a fierce competition with Foundation X over it. However, the SOLU fell into Foundation X’s hands. The dreadful project they’re advancing is…?

Chapter 2: Kamen Rider OOO
From a distortion in time caused by the meteorites, the present world has become connected with the world 40 years into our future. Kamen Rider Poseidon comes from the future carrying the future’s Core Medals. Since Poseidon likes to fight more than anything else, he aims to defeat our present Riders OOO and Birth. He targets Eiji Hino (OOO), who has recently come home from his journey. But when that happens–who appears but Ankh, who disappeared during the previous battles.

Chapter 3: Futo – The Secret Plot Advances
Shotaro Hidari encounters Foundation X in Futo and begins to investigate their plans. On the other hand, the 7 Riders find the location of Foundation X’s secret airport and corner its leader, Remu Kannagi. However, Foundation X laid a trap the Riders couldn’t predict. The 7 Riders are in danger! And Foundation X’s plot is coming closer and closer to fruition…!

Chapter 4: Kamen Rider Fourze
Amanogawa High School is full of people for the Culture Festival. Then suddenly, a cute girl fell from the sky. Gentaro Kisaragi falls in love with that girl, Nadeshiko Misaki, but for some reason the Zodiarts are after her. To protect her, he transforms into Kamen Rider Fourze, but she surprisingly transforms into Kamen Rider Nadeshiko. Exactly what is her true identity? In truth, Nadeshiko is one link in this big chain of events, and has a big secret.

Chapter 5: Movie Wars MEGAMAX
Fourze, OOO and Double were chasing the same enemy. When the full scope of the enemy’s plans comes to light, the Riders join forces to protect world peace. However, before the Riders appears a large army of Zodiarts, Greeed and Dopants. Fourze and the other Riders are attacked by this army and end up in trouble. Is there a chance to turn the tables? Fight, our heroes! Gather here, legendary warriors!

Whoa, looks like it’s gonna be another big rumble! Do our heroes have what it takes to stop Foundation X in it’s tracks?! We’ll just have to find out when the movie debuts in December (or when the movie comes out on Blu-Ray/DVD release six months later).
