…Dary! Surprisingly, not a lot of big news for Go-Kaiger from this past week, but there’s still some interesting news for the movie Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan, and we have new episode summaries for the next two episodes. It’s Don Dogoier the Legendary Hero vs. Damaras, the Strongest Man in Space!
First, here’s the episode summaries for this last episode and the next two (keep in mind that these came out yesterday before anyone saw the episode):
Episode 42: The Strongest Man in Space – 12/11 script: Naruhisa Arakawa / director: Hiroyuki Kato Doc dreads facing enemies and hates fighting. Luka is flabbergasted that he thinks the Zangyack might change their ways. In this fight the enemy targets Doc first. But, instead of facing them, he turns and runs away. Joe bluntly calls him pathetic.
Every time Doc fights now he gets less manly and more uncool. Ahim finds an old magazine with an article about the legendary hero Don Dogoier, looking heroic and brave. He looks just like Doc, so she suspects that they are the same person.
Episode 43: Becoming the Legendary Hero – 12/18 script: Naruhisa Arakawa / director: Hiroyuki Kato Damaras, the strongest man in space, combines forces with Basco and attacks Marvelous and his crew. They don’t see Doc but kidnap the others. Afterward, Doc finally stands up and pursues the enemy.
Episode 44: N/A (12/25) script: Junko Koumura / director: Taro Sakamoto Gai brings a Christmas tree onto the Galleon. The others don’t know about Christmas, so they think the dazzling ornaments are strange. After they learn about Christmas from a picture book, they decide to have a party on the Galleon.
Gai and Luka go out shopping for the party. While they’re out, they meet a group of children decorating for Christmas, including young Sayo. But then the Zangyack appear….
Everybody gets a Christmas episode! And other rumors have the Kakuranger tribute episode after these, which includes the return of Ninjaman!
Anyway, onto movie news!
First, we have this pic from the wrap-up party for the Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan filming:
Here’s the full Go-Kaiger crew, along with Hosogai Kei who plays Basco da Jorokia, and Ohba Kenji, who reprised all three of his famous toku roles in the movie. The movie comes out January 21st with Blu-Ray/DVD release on March 21st (wow, only a two month turn around; unusual, but wholeheartedly welcomed!).
And we now know what the theme song for the movie will be! And it is (drumroll please)…
…”JUMP!” by Kushida Akira and Matsubara Tsuyoshi! Just like the movie is a crossover between the Super Sentai and Metal Heroes series, the song is a collaboration between Kushida, who sung the Gavan theme song, and Matsubara, who sung the Go-Kaiger theme song. “JUMP!” will be released January 25th.
And that’s everything related to Go-Kaiger, for now. If anything else pops up, I’ll let you know!
