The Asylum is the center of all activity on The Outhouse. All the topics from the forums below are collected here, along with Asylum-only discussions about all sorts of other stuff: music, movies, video games, politics, what Outhousers had for breakfast... It's all here in one place. Join the insanity!
In partnership with Namco, TOEI put a "hands on" and thought of a museum facing the entertainment that brings together elements of creative art linked to the TOEI Tokusatsu Heroes, as well as the movies in one place! "TOEI HERO WORLD: NAMCO MUSEUM ACTION" was created so they could be immortalized and thus, always remembered by several generations.
Opening this December, it will be located at the 3rd floor of Aeon Shopping Makuhari New City in Mihama, Chiba City. Various facilities are available for the enjoyment of the entire family. This includes the museum that will showcase all kinds of materials from various tokusatsu works, such as uniforms, clothing and props, as well as a space to offer various related products, such as beverages, food, paraphernalia, among many things.
Today our company announces the Toei Japan Channel, a subscription service aimed for Japanese living in North America.
It will be available through MyGlobeTV, provided by GlobeCast, a New York-based company that provides non-English programming across North America. (This service is not available outside North America.)
Toei Japan Channel will not only deliver Toei’s films and television programming, but also those available on Toei Video and from Central Arts K.K. (a Toei Video company), bringing a variety of content to viewers in North America.
Hyper Hobby: How did Gaim come about? Takebe: We wanted to do something with multiple Riders. Every Rider after W has only had 2 Riders and we wanted to break away from that. I mean, you have AKB 48 with multiple members, there’s also sports teams and so many other things. Having multiple members brings excitement on different levels. We slowly ventured into the Sengoku era and planned on having that as the core theme. Every Rider would be taking inspiration from that era. But it would be boring if they all looked the same. HH: So that’s why their are based on different armors to give each and everyone their own personality. Takebe: Exactly, we wanted to give them different things that would set them all apart. Like making some of them into insects, or even birds. Although, Bandai eventually came to us and said “Fruits“, that became the center theme we worked with. You can still see some bird features if you look carefully. HH: Ah, so Bandai wanted you to incorporate the fruits into the toys that we now know as Arms Change. Takebe: They liked what we did with Kamen Rider OOO, how everything could be easily swapped around. Gaim has a similar feel to that. HH: While you wanted to do a show with multiple Riders and have the Sengoku era as the theme, Bandai wanted you to use fruits. Is that correct? Takebe: Basically. The reason why we agreed on fruits was because we wanted to use something that has never been used before as its core theme. HH: But don’t you think using fruits would be strange? Takebe: Not really. We’ve already done a train Rider, we aren’t really worried about this at all. (laughs) HH: I understand then. (laughs) Takebe: The thing is, when you see Gaim you don’t exactly think of an orange immediately. It’s right there, but still somewhat subtle. HH: Why an orange out of all fruits? Takebe: We actually researched into what fruits were popular with the kids. Orange came out on top. HH: Oranges, bananas, grapes and melons were the most popular then? Takebe: More or less. We choose fruits that everyone knew for the main Riders. Melons are high commodity fruits too.
Much like the Makai Senki announcement, the details are limited to crew details and that the series will run for a total of 6 episodes. Amemiya returns to Garo after a break from The One Who Shines In The Dark to work with writer Inoue for Shougeki Gouraigan in a supervisory/director role, while director of the original and Makai Senki, Ryu Kaneda, is stated as the director.
The other rumored Super Sentai series is Tokubou Sentai Kyuumeijya (Special Protection Squad Live Savers), which is yet another rescue-themed team.
Take these rumors with a grain of salt.
This rumored team will try the "realistic look" attempted by Go-Busters, with show set up akin to RescuePolice. The number of the Rangers in the show is 9, using the pun "Kyuumei" (Life Saving) and "Kyu" (9)
These 9 Rangers are divided into teams, similar to how Hurricaneger and Go-Onger did years ago. Lastly, the show will not have a main enemy, similar to the enemies in Dekaranger.
