As a fan of Japanese entertainment, I can't deny that there are times when something just goes horribly wrong. Innovation may or may not work depending on how it's done and when it's done. Just because somebody innovates doesn't mean it's going to be good. It can be bad or good depending on what kind of innovation was being done. It's not all the time an innovation replaces something. While PCs and laptops have replaced typewriters in producing office documents but electronic books have not replaced paperback. Sure you can reduce stress in working with a PC but you can't deny you still need to print it. Paperback books have not gotten obsolete. The methods have improved but innovation doesn't necessarily get rid of the old in favor of the new.
While Toei still waits for Andrew Michael Gray, Ciara Hanna and Sayaka Akimoto to arrive in Japan for the filming of "The Prime Minister's Rumored Girlfriend", the latest Shippaiman episode had outraged Joseph Pabaya and outgoing President Nobita Aquino. The episode of Shippaiman showed that Japan's bullet trains were all deteriorating under the watch of Joben Abunami, the transportation secretary of a dystopian Japan. The Prime Minister Nobita hired him based on the padrino system.
This week's guest in Shippaiman is Yoshihiro Fukoda. He played as Minoru Uesagi in Gekisou Sentai Carranger. Based on the episode he lost his Accel Changer and where he couldn't morph, the series' current episode showed more lack of judgment on the part of Prime Minister Nobita. In the episode, Shippaiman tries to fix the problems of the train only to result to a major disaster. The Winsbraindraft team now featured both Jules Chikafuji and Takeru Inaba trying out their Solbra…
After looking at Mighty No. 9 and hearing disappointing reviews, I want to share my thoughts on how I might have drafted a Megaman successor. I feel like it's going to be quite different. Now I'm no programmer or anything but I'd like to share my imagined Megaman concept. Considering I've been a fan of both Classic Megaman and Megaman X, there's going to be a series of combined themes between them.
I remembered watching VR Troopers and later, I found about the existence of the superhero Metalder. Judging by the time Megaman and Metalder existed, Metalder came first. I thought about how my "spiritual successor" to Megaman might be pretty weird. But here's my concept anyway but sorry, no original artwork. Just my concepts okay? Here's my idea.
Back as a 90s child, I remembered watching Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers back to back with Baywatch on ABiaS-CBN. But I didn't really pay too much attention to Baywatch's plot except for Cassie Jean Parker. Time to take a trip back to memory lane for the 90s. Kimberly Hart
Watching Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers was a guilty pleasure for me as a child. I didn't really like it, people called me immature for watching it while I hid that one huge stupid reason why I even watched it. Maybe I just watched it like every other child who enjoyed a children's show or not. Regardless, I just checked out almost everything. In the case of Mighty Morphin' I wasn't in there because it was a show targeted for children. I was there because of Kimberly. She was really a sweet a lovable character to the point I still fling a dirty finger on Douglas Sloan's face during Zeo for derailing her. She became the reason why I liked Tommy as a child so I could imagine myself n…
Shippaiman Episode Two entitled "Hostage Fiasco" caused an outrage. Kenichi Endo did a dual guest role. He plays as big time tycoon Rukio Tanaka who owns a liquor manufacturing plant. The other role Endo plays is as the hostage taker Rorando Medora. The whole episode had several hostages taken from the Philippines who were going to Japan for a tour. It caused an uproar from Filipinos and Nobita loyalists.
The episode featured Kenichi Endo in a dual role. Prime Minister Nobita was seen having a good time while a bus full of Filipinos was hostaged by Medora. Medora is a fired police chief in Japan for accepting bribes. Medora wanting to be reinstated takes a group of Filipinos hostage. The rescue team sent by President Nobita are incompetent. It's shown President Nobita was at Tanaka's social gathering, unwilling to use any of his power to move during the hostage crisis. During the episode, Shippaiman fails yet again.
The comedy series where Osamu Sakuta stars as the pseudo-hero Shippaiman hits the record high for its first episode. While Super Sentai and Kamen Rider airs on Sunday mornings on Super Hero Time, Shippaiman aired last night on 7:00 P.M. Shippaiman becomes the most watched television program during its first episode for the last four years. Ratings have been down since Go-Busters up to Ninninger. But Shippaiman broke the scale even at the first day outdoing Super Sentai, Power Rangers and Kamen Rider which are Toei's list of ongoing intellectual properties.
Sakuta said, "I didn't expect Shippaiman to break the scale. Akibaranger sure had some followers but this one is unexpected. The comedy Tokusatsu series have stolen the ratings from Zyuohger and Kamen Rider Ghost. We never intended this comedy show to be for children but... how in the world did we get such ratings?!" Sakuta was surprised at the number of viewers that watched Shippaiman on TV-Asahi.
A bit of retro for Toku fans, I felt like there was one show that I just watched as a child but disliked even greater as an adult. It's the Tokusatsu series known as Nebula Mask Machine Man. No, it wasn't Super Sentai but Other Hero and the show was a failure.
The story of Nebula Mask Machine Man is about an alien who disguises himself as Ken Takase. He went to Earth to complete his research paper on Earthlings. I can remember Machine Man as the hero that saved children from real stupid plots by Professor K and later his niece Madame M. The show wasn't popular and may be remembered as one of the greatest failures ever in Toei's list of properties. No matter how stupid Machine Man was but there's one thing I can count on is that HE FREAKING SAVES THE DAY!
Unfortunately, there's "Machine Mar" in real life. Mar Roxas does have certain resemblances to the character of Ken Takase appearance wise. Why I'm calling him "Machine Mar" is because…
