Ohhhh Gaimu's director, Ryuta Tasaki also did Akibaranger. Maybe that's why it seems so wacky?

If it is like Akibaranger, I could go for "bad".


We’ll see, Fourze looked super silly and I ended up really liking it. But Gentaro was a really likeable character from the start. :smt102

Caught the first two episodes of Ultraman Ginga.

More of the same as an Ultraman show. This time... it involves the toys.

This year's 17th issue of Kodansha's Be Love magazine announced on Monday that Aki Morino's Shikatsushi - Joō no Hōigaku josei manga will be adapted into a one-episode live-action drama special. The special will air on Friday, September 29 from 9:00 to 10:52 p.m. JST on the Fuji TV channel.

The original manga revolves around forensic doctor Yuki Kiriyama, a smart but strange teacher at a medical university who wears no makeup and has frizzy hair. Hajime Inugai, a fourth-year at the medical university, comes to work under her. However, he finds that he can hear the voices of the corpses that he is investigating, and learns the truth about each of their deaths.

Wow early...

[url=http://www.orendsrange.com/2013/08/38th-super-sentai-rumors-animal-edition.html38TH SUPER SENTAI RUMORS: Animal Edition[/url]

It's that time of the year again as we have our first set of RUMORS for the next Super Sentai series. Again, take these rumors with a grain of salt since they are still rumors.

The next Super Sentai series will feature "animal faced" vehicles similar to the ones from Jetman, Go-Onger and recently, Go-Busters. The biggest surprise in this rumor is that the line will not include a lion mecha, a staple in most general animal themed shows.

The color Yellow return next year as a female.
