KR Joker = KR BLACK?!

Note: Before reading this article, may I suggest you play Back in Black by AC/DC... or you can just ignore this message.

Kamen Rider W has a lot of homages from past Kamen Rider shows, heck I even compiled some of those homages back then! With the upcoming Kamen Rider W film, I finally notice the Kamen Rider BLACK homage in W's design thanks to Kamen Rider Joker. Here's a checklist of W's BLACK homage.

+ Shoulder pads. Check.
+ Arm and leg bands. Check.
+ A robust top armor. Check.
+ Trunks. Check.
+ No scarf. Check.
+ Plus according to latest movie info, KR Joker's Maximum Drive involves executing a Rider Punch and a Rider Kick... Check.

And for the man behind the mask.
+ Their names end in a -taro. Check.
+ Their friend in which they treat like a brother was kidnapped but some organization, brainwashed and he must face him for him to save the world. Still pending.

Now, guys what do you think?

KR OOO detailed data

Kamen Rider OOO - Hino Eiji
With Kamen Rider W's finale getting nearer, and casts and basic forms for Kamen Rider OOO revealed, all fans are hyped up to see the new Kamen Rider in action! Now, here are some more information regarding the 12th Heisei Rider.

Hino Eiji, 21 years old. A man without devotion or desire, and very little prospects for marriage. He's always wandering around and can't settle for a job. He's a "As long as I have some money, tomorrow and some panties, I am fine" kind of guy. However, when someones life is in danger he's always there to help. He got the OOO Driver from Ankh and with it, he's able to transform into Kamen Rider OOO.

The source ofKamen Rider OOO's power is by throwing in three O Medals into the transformer belt, the OOO Driver. The O Scanner will then have to scan the three medals to access the TaToBa Form: the power of Eagle's is the head, the power of Tiger's are the chest and arms, the power of the Grasshopper's are the legs. When he transforms a tune plays. By throwing in different O Medal combinations OOO can form change.

Kamen Rider OOO Statistics:

  • Height: 194 cm
  • Weight: 86 kg
  • Punch strength: 4.5 ton
  • Kick strength: 12 ton
  • Speed: 100 m in 4.5s
  • Jump length: 190 m
Kamen Rider OOO has a side-weapon called Medajalibur, a silver-colored sword. With the Tiger arms, he's able to use sharp claws called, Tiger Claw, as his weapon. His TaToBa form's special attack is called TaToBa Kick.

Ankh and Izumi Hina
Ankh (left), one of the five Greed's who awoke from a long slumber. However, he is missing some medals so he can only transform his arm. He took the body of a dying police officer, Izumi. He's using Eiji to collect medals.

Izumi Hina (right), the sister of the police officer Ankh is possessing. She met Ankh and Eiji while she was working at a restaurant.

Kamen Rider OOO RideVender
Ride Vender a vending machine that can turn into Kamen rider OOO's bike. It came from the Kogami Foundation. When OOO puts a Cell Medal inside the Ride Vender he's able to get various can-like support mechas called Can Droids. When he pulls the pull tab it slowly transforms.

Kamen Rider OOO Can DroidKogami Foundation is a foundation that is holding many assets. They develop various items such as the Ride Vender, Medajalibur, Cell Medals. They offer it all to OOO, their motives are unknown. The president of Kogami Foundation, Kosei, loves to bake cakes. His secretary, Erika, is always thinking about her diet.

It is rumored that Kogami Foundation has some connection on Kamen Rider W's Foundation X. But this is still not confirmed.

Kamen Rider OOO Greed and Yummu
Greeds, from an 800 year slumber, 5 monsters have awoken. However, they were revived with an incomplete body. They are able to create weaker monsters called Yummy. They are created from humans desire. At birth they have a white body. After eating human desire, they start to grow. The picture is the Greed Uua and his Yummy, Kamakiri.

The Womanizers in Sentai

The fact is Sentai has its own list of womanizers who are:

Shou Hayate/Change Pegasus- He entered into the military hoping to find girls in the process.

Kenta/Black Mask- He is the one with the most women in the series. He had Miyuki in episode 7, Yui in episode 11, Yoko in episode 13 and Seira (who is actually a monster) in episode 26. I kind of liked his tandem with Yui the best.

Youhei Hama/Blue Turbo- He chases around girls in the campus, maybe the source of his low grades?

Gai Yuuki/Black Condor- He is played to be somebody who flirts around with girls. Apparently he's played around with Ako Hayasaka for awhile (my favorite love team) and after his serious relationship with Kaori Rokumeikan ended, he went back to flirting with other girls.

Kou/Kiba Ranger- I think he's included. Hee hee.

Domon/Time Yellow- He always chased around girls that he lost his job as a wrestler. He later left a child behind at the 21st century by Honami Moriyama.

Souta Megumi/Bouken Blue- He has fallen for Princess Kaguya, he can't refuse any ladies and also, he has a crush on Shizuka in a rather lighthearted manner.

Joe and Kevin cosplayed as... Princess Jasmine and the game Operation?!

Time to play dress-up!
When all three Jonas Brothers sat down with their teen social network, to answer fan questions, Joe's response to the Halloween costume one really had us LOL-ing.
"Ironically enough I used to be Jasmine from Aladdin and that was my favorite costume," he told the website. "I used to feel like a grown up wearing it!"
Umm, what kind of adult, we don't want to know! Kevin also had a buzzworthy response: "I dressed up as the game Operation."
Hmm, cross-dressing and Milton Bradley obsessions? Doesn't sound like the typical childhood. Check out the full interview to learn more!

Goseiger 23- It's One HOT Episode... Literally

This is one HOT episode... literally. So why? Well the girls are on the way to view some fireworks. The new monster Zaigo (almost sounds like that $#! of a show called Zaido) has a plan to make people feel too hot inside and cause a simultaneous release of freon in the air, to cause global warming because people will be forced to stay too long in the airconditioner.

Things get from bad to worse when Hyde gets affected too. He is really burning so hard that...

They have to put him into a tank of water to cool him off. They eventually see battle to where there's also a perversity moment of the girls' tops flying off (but nothing seen) who were about to be given a firework-themed death.

The episode ends with a beautiful firework display with Hyde in a cold.

Happy Birthday Selena Gomez!

Today is Selena Gomez' 18th Birthday. and now, she's officially an adult. (18 everywhere you go signals the beginning of adulthood, if I'm right) before she was known as the manipulative, rule-ignoring havoc maker Alex Russo on Wizards of Waverly Place, she had a role in Barney and Friends as a kid, and later the recurring guest character Mikayla in Hannah Montana.

Now she will appear in Ramona and Beezus (in which the TV spots credit her more than her costar Joey King, who's not always credited in the TV spots) as Beezus, and her upcoming 2nd album, A Year Without Rain, will be released in the future. Not to mention her fashion skills come in the form of her clothing line Dream Out Loud, a Kmart exclusive, now on sale.

So once more, have a spellbinding 18th birthday Selena Gomez!

Goseiger 22: understanding each other to form a new mech.

This particular episode shows the development between the Goseigers and Goseiknight. Hmmm...

Slowly but surely, the Goseigers are getting to know each other.

The monster Uuzobu reminds me of Boukenger's giant evil dragon mecha in episode two. He is one who battled Gosei Knight in the past and it takes some effort with the Goseigers to stop him.

Eventually we see another combination where Gosei Great and Gosei Ground combine into Ground Gosei Great. This is now something cooler than the Hyper Gosei Great IMO. :-P

Why Humor in Sentai is necessary

The thing is just as drama is necessary, Super Sentai humor is just necessary. Why? Well think about it, laughter is good medicine and it helps produce the killer cells. Here are some reasons why:

It gives more personality to the rangers especially the more serious type. It shows that not all humans are jerks. Even somebody that serious like Hoji Tomasu has great humor moments within the series showing how much of a nice guy he really is.

It shows that although these groups protect us, nobody's perfect in this world gone wrong so they need to help each other out. Take for instance some of the red rangers are not what they expect them to be and they later change for the better or how Mako Shiraishi despite the fact she's hot, she's a bad cook. :-P

At least there will be some time to laugh at the villains rather than keep hating them. This happens in more lighter Sentai shows like Boukenger which I believe was meant to avoid the stories from becoming too dark IMO.

Selena Gomez bids WoWP goodbye after Season 4

Selena Gomez just announced that after four seasons starring as Alex Russo on Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place that this season will be her last. "Unfortunately, I'm doing my last season of my show, which I'm really heartbroken about," Selena says. "I'm gonna do a movie for my show, which I'll be excited to end it with, and then a tour." The final season of Wizards of Waverly Place will air later this year and the sequel to Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie is already in the works. Selena's keeping busy with her new movie Ramona and Beezus hitting theaters July 23 and her album (featuring her new single "Round and Round") dropping September 28.

Camp Rock 2: Wouldn't Change A Thing MP3 DL

Credits to

How I'm Starting to See Goseiger Now

I think Goseiger may not be a very good season IMO but it may be too early to say that. Here are some weak points I see in the show:

I think the characters need to liven up. The only one that's keeping the show alive IMO is Eri.

The show's previous villains weren't that strong so they had to be killed off early except Bladerun.

I think the show needs to improve its fight scenes. Am I getting biased or what?

I think there's too much mecha. In fact, I'm not surprised some of my visitors voted for "Cut down on the mecha" and I agree. I hope this doesn't cause a crash in Sentai. If Sentai freezes, well Saban may end up dubbing/subbing Sentai series instead. I hope no more new mecha after the next batch! At least the previous had better mecha plot than just coming in out of random.

Happy Birthday David Henrie!

Maji Maji Majiiro!

Just kidding... well a bit. why? Today is David Henrie's birthday. he's 21 today. Prior to Wizards, he had a recurring/guest role in That's so Raven. he also got his first Disney Channel Movie appearance as one of the main characters in Dadnapped.

so hats of to you, Mahou Tsukai (Wizard) David Henrie! Happy 21st birthday!

Sentai Rangers Who Were Cosplayers in Warfare

Another aspect in Sentai which intrigued me were cosplayers themselves. They are as I can remember:
Peggy Matsumaya/Momo Ranger in Goranger.

How could have I forgotten Banba Soichiki? Thanks ChrisX. He was a master of disguise and wore several styles.

Miki Monozono/Goggle Pink- Just can't forget her many infamous disguises.

Hikaru Katsuragi/Pink Five- She was a master of disguise herself. She's the one who taught the others.

Sara/Yellow Flash- She being the brains was also a cosplayer.

Haruka/Yellow Mask and Momoko/Pink Mask- They both disguised themselves as crooks to fool Kiros into believing he had controlled them when they were being set up. Just bad-ass. But I like the gun action of the girls in Boukenger better though.

Haruna Morikawa/Pink Turbo- I just can't forget that infamous episode where she pretended to be brainwashed to gain Zulten's trust. Best moment ever.

Raita Ooshi- Well he's a rare one. He dressed up like a woman to fool Voice Jigen.

Mei/Ptera Ranger- She had her infamous costume change fight with Lami. Too bad though Kimberly Hart didn't have any cosplay moment in battle.

Lin/Hououranger- She was a master of costumes for deceptive warfare.

Miku Imamura/Mega Pink- She later was seen teaching the the art to Sae Taiga in the Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai movie.

Soutaro Ishigome disguised as a bride to fool a monster. LOL.

Umeko Kodou- She was the mistress of disguise in Dekaranger.

Tetsu Aira/Deka Break- He dressed up as a woman although I think he's not gay. Jasmine always saw through his disguises too easily.

Hikaru/Magishine- He with Tetsu Aira cross-dressed to rescue Urara and Jasmine. Hee hee.

Ryuunosuke Ikinamai- He dressed up as a bride when Takeru Shiba and Mako Shiraishi's "wedding" didn't push through the trap as planned for the second plan.

Genta Umemori also dressed up of what is similar to Yamimaru's civilian attire from Turborangers to do "patrol duty".
