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!

Kamen Rider Fourze Super MEGA post: Launching Story Barrage in 3,…2,…1!

Hey, a bunch of new stories and rumors have come out for Kamen Rider Fourze over the last few days, and unfortunately I haven’t been able to keep up with the ever-growing number. So I’ve decided to just throw everything into one mega-post, starting from oldest to newest. So let’s get to it!

First off, we have official confirmation that both Ankh will return in Movie Wars MEGAMAX, and that Shotaro and Phillip will show up in this movie for the Kamen Rider W scene. As you can see from this image above, it also confirms the appearance of the Seven Legendary Riders. All of this can be seen in the newest trailer:

Is that a triple henshin I see? 😉

Next, the first official trailer for the upcoming game Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze has been released, and features both the new characters and the new gameplay. Let’s watch:

Don’t you just wanna rush out to order it? 😛

Next, we have some new episode summaries, and it looks like Daimonji will be joining the Kamen Rider Club soon, though rather reluctantly…

Episode 7: N/A – 10/16
Amanogawa High School wins the District Tournament. Daimonji’s father congratulates him. The cheering team also comes out to cheer. However, Daimonji is searching for Miu. He phones her, Miu says that she is busy with other club activities.

At the background you can hear the sound “Spike ON,” and Miu started to scream. Fourze and Yuki were trying out the switches. Miu tells Daimonji that Kamen Rider activities are important and hangs up the phone.

Episode 8: N/A – 10/23
Gentaro, Kengo and Yuki are requested to have a supplementary class during holiday time, but a Zodiarts appeared and the three must leave the classroom. The teacher ordered them to stand outside the classroom because of their actions. Daimonji is in the class as well so as to interfere with the Kamen Rider Club.

Episode 9 – N/A 10/30
Gentaro and Yuki have a morning run? Kengo and Nozama stares at them coldly. Meanwhile, three girl students and Tomoko call themselves witches. Yuki is invited to one of their secret witch meetings…

Next, it’s been confirmed that anime singer May’N and former SURFACE vocalist Shiina Yoshiharu have formed a new singing unit, the Astronauts, to sing the theme for Fourze’s Elek State entitled “Giant Step”, which was heard in episode 6 of Fourze. Both artists have performed a number of different anime themes with each of their respective groups, and this is the first time the two have collaborated on such a project.

And finally, we have a few rumors on the second Rider for Kamen Rider Fourze, the newly named Kamen Rider Sagu. Here’s what’s been said do far:

  • 2nd Rider is named Kamen Rider Sagu and powers come from the Sagittarius Zodiarts. The Zodiarts Switch is converted into the 41st Astro Switch.
  • The armor is all blue, including the eyes. The left eye divided, and the division makes for a sort of “3rd eye.”
  • Belt has a bow-and-arrow motif and works like GokaiSilver’s GokaiCellular, scanning the switches. The arrow on the belt is the symbol for Mars, the circle of the arrow is pulled up on using your finger to transform, causing the arrow to slide over the Switch, scanning it.
  • Belt works with Sagu’s personal weapon.

So, a bad guy turned good, and on based on the warrior constellation Sagittarius? We’ll have to see how this one turns out.

And that’s it for Fourze news. You should be completely caught up at this point in time. But if anything else pops up, I’ll be sure to let you know!

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal to Premiere on CW 4Kids Toonzai October 15th: Wait, 4Kids still has rights to it?

4Kids Entertainment recently announced via Facebook and YouTube that Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, the latest iteration of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, will premiere on their CW 4Kids Toonzai block.

The new series revolves around the story of 13-year-old Yuma Tukumo, an amateur duelist, and Astral, a mysterious life form from a parallel world that suddenly appears before Yuma. The series originally debutted in Japan back in April, with the manga launching back in February.

Here’s the new teaser promo that 4Kids has posted:

4Kids has been in recent legal battles with the series licensers, ADK and TV Tokyo, which nearly led to the two licencing companies to cut ties with 4Kids and sell licenses to new distributors. To sum up the events to this point, 4Kids filed legal actions against the two companies to keep them from selling to someone else, until their own separate legal troubles were resolved (for a more complete story, click here).

Well then, I guess this news begs the question: how do you feel about Zexal making it’s way into the world? Are you excited by this? Could you care less? And how do you feel about 4Kids handling it? Are you happy about it, or would you prefer another company dealing with fewer legal troubles to distribute it? I’ll admit, I haven’t really followed the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise in a while, I might just have to see if this series is worth it’s muster.
