Okay, now it's REALLY been awhile...

Yeah it's been nearly a year since I posted something here but honestly, I've just have not had much interest updating it. I usually post a lot of twitter (@MrBlack49) if you want to follow me there, but really, I doubt I'll ever post here much. I did find an app for blogger so maybe I'll post some quick blurbs once in awhile. Otherwise don't expect much. I'm still active in Toku and Anime and all that jazz. But real life takes over sometimes, especially now that I'm in college. So I'll post once in awhile. Until then, see ya!

It's been a while...

It's been about nine months since i last posted here and although i'm still active in the tokusatsu community, i've just found it a chore to keep updating this blog.

However, since it has been two years since i've created this blog, i have decided to write here again. I plan on writing my thoughts on the weeky Super Hero Time lineups, maybe some reviews of some toku shows or even video games, and maybe some things going on in my life.

I won't say this is permanent but i do want to start writing on this blog for as long as i can. Until then, i'll see you next year!

Super Hero Time - Japan Relief Effort

As many of you may have heard, there was a tragic 8.9 magnitude earthquake in Japan which created a 23 foot tsunami and left destruction in its path. The death toll it seems is in the thousands and personally, my heart goes out to the people of Japan.

However, a joint effort between Riders, Rangers and Rambles (RRR), CSToys, HJU, YouTube Toy reviewers, and Renz Media Network have teamed up to form Super Hero Time, which is basically collecting donations to help Japan. All donations will go to Mr. S of CSToys, who will hand deliver the proceeds to charity foundations in Japan, so your money is going to be in the right hands. I would encourage you to take part in this and donate as much as you can to help Japan in this time of crisis. If we all chip in, we can make a difference.

Here is the site to where you can donate:

I Have Returned!

Yeah, I know it's been a few months since my last post, and I want to give my apologies. I have not forgotten about this blog, but I have been either extremely bust or just kinda lazy. But either way, I do plan to write on this blog again. I swear I really do want to, but I am currently in the process of a research paper for my English Class, so real life has taken my time a lot. However, I will find ways to post on this blog. I really want to, but even if I do, posts will take longer to complete. But, I'll work something out and continue to post here.

There's a little update for you.

First look at Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger

The first official look at the 35th anniversary Sentai series, Kaizoku Sentai Goukaiger is out...and it looks great! I love the uniforms! The pirate theme works really well. Also, I like their helmets. They look very retro looking. The emblem on the top of the helmet looks cool, but also describes the gimmick of the series, keys, which'll be used to transform into past Sentai warriors. The Key gimmick reminds me Ryukendo, but I digress.

The series is set to premiere on February 13, 2011. Judging by the rumors we've heard, I am really excited for this! Seems February is the month for premieres. Both this and Power Rangers Samurai, which premieres on February 5, start in February.

Samurai, Goukaiger, and OOO. Here's hoping that 2011 will be an awesome year for Toku!

Toku Music Showcase 6

Here's another Showcase for ya!

As many of you know, or should know, Kamen Rider OOO is the current KR series. So far, OOO is a very good series so far, having some good drama, awesome action, and a great premise. And what goes with an awesome show? An awesome theme song!

The theme song for Kamen Rider OOO is titled Anything Goes!, performed by Japanese recording artist Maki Ohguro. Although the full version of the song was only released a few weeks ago, the thing is I instantly fell in love with the song when I saw the first episode of OOO. This opening was so awesome that I listened to the TV Sized version constantly. I just absolutely loved it. Love at first listen, I say, just like with Double's theme, "W-B-X ~W-Boiled Extreme~". Even since I heard this, I had been anticipating the full version. The waiting was worth it, because this song is awesome!

As I said on my thoughts on OOO's first episode, this song is just full of energy, which is bolstered by Maki Ohguro's wonderful voice. I mean it, she just has an awesome singing voice. Plus the rapping on the song, performed by Rah-D, makes the song even more awesome. Plus the beat of the song is just wonderful. I can say that this is one of the only songs that I can listen to an instrumental of and have it not seem awkward to me. I mean it, it's that good. I absolutely love this song. I always find myself listening to it on repeat mode on my computer or my mp3 player, which oddly enough I'm listening to it right now. Overall, OOO is cool, this song is cool, and the PV is cool (Check it out, it's awesome).

Look forward to another Toku Music Showcase.
