Saraba, 2010.

As 2010 finally ends this year, It finally all comes to a close. now it's time to lookback at stuff that happened in both the World of Disney Channel and the World of Tokusatsu.

1. A year of Cool, epic new shows

That 2010, We were treated to cool shows like Tensou Sentai GoSeiger, Good Luck Charlie, JONAS LA, Shake It Up and Kamen Rider OOO. Shake It Up brought back the Lizzie McGuire formula of everyday tween problems and situations while mixing elements from Hannah Montana and Sonny With a Chance, while Kamen Rider OOO brings forth the rider with the most forms via medals. Good Luck Charlie reintroduces the formula of a normal family first found in Even Stevens (in fact, it's been 10 years since Stevens) while Tensou Sentai GoSeiger, brings back powered protectors (last seen in Boukenger), no "all mechas combined" formation (since Gekiranger), and a no identity 6th Ranger since Hurricanger.

2. The movies that excite us

2010 is another reason for movies and such. Toku movies like Super Hero Time: The Movie 2010 (Kamen Rider W FOREVER A-Z: The Gaia Memories of Fate and Tensou Sentai GoSeiger: Epic on the Movie), Ultraman Zero The Movie, The Cho Den-O Trilogy movies, and Kamen Rider Movie Wars Core exicted toku fans, while Disney Channel Original Movies like 16 Wishes, Avalon High (pictured above), StarStruck, Den Brother and Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam were the servings of that year for tween viewers. Disney Stars got in the act too in the big screen, with  Zac Efron's Charlie St. Cloud and Selena Gomez's Ramona and Beezus leading the pack.

3. The lucky number 18

2010 was also the year 3 Disney Girls finally turned legit in the eyes of most of their boy fans. Starting with Selena Gomez (July 22), then Demi Lovato (August 22), and finally Miley Cyrus (November 23), these 3 finally bloomed. The only guy that was the same age of them this year, who also turned legit too, was Nick Jonas.

4. The time their shows say goodbye

In the episode shooting part of their shows, Both The Suite Life on Deck and Hannah Montana Forever ends their filming of episodes on their last day of shooting their last episodes. Kamen Rider W, on the other hand, while their filming of the show was already over, finally bids farewell that August 2010. however, their adventure is not over yet, as evidenced in Movie Wars Core.

5. The crumbling of Miley and Demi's World

The year that they became 18 was also the year things didn't go well for them. Miley had much a problem from dressing provocatively to her parents finally divorcing. Demi on the other hand, lost her boyfriend (Joe Jonas) to Ashley Greene, her friend died (not Selena, fortunately), and because her bad past caught up with her, ended up punching her backup dancer and threatening Ashley, all leading to her going to rehab to heal herself. but it got worse when her haters banded together and started brining up false rumors to bring her down.

As we finally say farewell in a few hours (some countries may have been already finished celebrating New Year's Day), it's time to let go of the bad memories of that year and bring with us the happiest ones for this year. in 2011, We have lots to look forward too, like the upcoming Kaizoku Sentai Goukaiger, the Sentai version of Kamen Rider Decade, Demi Lovato's comeback, and Hannah Montana's final episode.

so 2010... We'll miss you.

"Now, count up your crimes!"

Demi spends Christmas with family outside rehab

After spending almost two months in a treatment center near Chicago for "emotional and physical issues," Demi Lovato got a pass to leave the center on Christmas Day so she could spend it with her family, who came to visit her.
Sources say that on her outing, Demi wore army boots, a leopard print coat, a black beret, and seemed to be in good spirits before returning to the center later that night. One gift that Demi got? A scrapbook from her little sister Madison, who was asking Demi's fan on Twitter to send her positive messages.
No word on when Demi will be released from the treatment center.

OOO TaJaDoru Combo stats

As the debut of Kamen Rider OOO's most powerful combo, Kamen Rider OOO TaJaDoru, comes nearer, here are more information regarding this form and his base stats.

KAMEN RIDER OOO TAJADORUKamen Rider OOO TaJaDoru Base stats:

  • Punch: 6.5 ton
  • Kick: 15 ton
  • Jump: Up to 160 m
  • Speed: 100 m in 4 s
  • Special Attack: 120 ton
As a result after gathering the Taka (Hawk), Kujaku (Peafowl) and Condor Medals, Kamen Rider OOO will finally be able to transform into the complete bird combo, called Kamen Rider OOO TaJaDoru combo. He's equipped with the TaJaSpinner on his left hand which utilizes the energy residing in O Medals. On his back, he has wings that he can fold out which allows supersonic flight.

Kamen Rider OOO TaJaDoru combo is really different from the other combos. It even turns the usual Hawk head into "Hawk Head Brave."The crest on the chest turns into a peafowl and it's the only combo that does this. The OOO TaJaDoru in the movie is slightly different since it doesn't have a TaJaSpinner.

Kamen Rider OOO TaJaDoru combo's Scanning Charge will be calledProminence Drop.

Selena admires... Hilary Duff?

Selena Gomez revealed in a recent interview that she admires former Disney star Hilary Duff, from “Lizzy McGuire.”
"I grew up an only child so I loved entertaining myself and putting on shows for my friends and family. I loved Hilary Duff growing up, Lizzie McGuire was my life. She sang and she acted as well, so that’s always something I’ve always wanted to do. Acting took off first for me which was nice, because on the series I work on I was able to focus on it and make it the best I can. And I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to do music. I’ve always wanted to do music."
Which celebrity do YOU admire?

so that means it's not just Miley Cyrus who has an idol in Hilary, then? I wonder what took Sel to 'fess up that long... =]

Presenting: the official Goukaiger "crew" I mean, cast!

Once again, the ever-reliable Henshin Grid has provided information and photos. Yup. Here is the photo of the cast:

We have the following in the cast and I'll list them from left to right:

  • Koike Yuuki as Goukai Pink
  • Shimizu Kazuki as Goukai Green
  • Ozawa Ryota as Goukai Red
  • Yamada Yuuki as Goukai Blue
  • Ichimichi Mao as Goukai Yellow
I personally think this cast really looks promising. Hmmm... and here's a few of my comments:
  • Ozawa Ryota looks like a PRINCE.
  • Ichimichi Mao looks like she's got mixed Caucasian blood. Me... well I I have Caucasian blood too like how many Caucasians have gotten Oriental blood.
Thanks to Sean Akizuki's Sentai Blog for the confirmation of the cast.

Merry CHRISTMAS 2010

From all of us two at Arnold's place, We wish you all a happy Merry CHRISTmas!

Why is the "Christ" part of the word in Big letters? he's the true reason for the season. Jesus Christ was born on that day to save our sins. he maybe not a toku hero, at least, he's giving us the gift or eternal life for those who accept him.

so remember, Celebrate the true reason, not the season! Merry CHRISTmas from us guys @ Arnold's Place.

(If you noticed that was last year's pic of the month. I had to reuse it again for the season.)

Demi Lovato to spend Xmas in rehab

Demi's been singing "I'll Be Home For Christmas," but it's looking like that won't happen, unfortunately.
Despite hoping to spend the holidays at home with her family, it's been reported that Demi Lovato will still stay at the rehab facility she's been in since November.
What a bummer!

Bella Thorne: Not like Miley

Do we have a new Hannah Montana on our hands? Not exactly.
For months now, people have been dubbing Shake It Up star Bella Thorne the next Miley Cyrus. Bella's not on board with that one, though!  
"It's great to be compared to somebody like Miley," she admitted in a recent interview. "But we actually don't have that much in common. She's a huge teen pop sensation, and I'm just a 13-year-old!"

But what about year later  will she become the next Miley? Only time will tell.

Selena's NOT a person pleaser

Think this girl can be walked all over? Think again! 
In a recent interview with with Sugar magazine, Selena Gomezopened up about how not nice she is. Well, not exactly. But girl's got a spine!
"I used to be much more of a people pleaser than I am today," theWizards of Waverly Place star admitted. "But about two years ago, I started getting better at doing things and making choices that make me happy. I definitely feel like I’m getting stronger."

Meanwhile, Arata and the others begin to put the pieces together about Buredoran, and realize something isn't quite right. What could it be?

Buredoran's true identity is Burajira, the Messiah of the former Gosei Angels. The name supposedly came from the sci-fi movie Brazil. In order to remake the world, Burajira must first destroy it. In a frightening display of power, hekidnaps GoseiKnight.

It is revealed that Groundion Headder, the true form of GoseiKnight, was Burajira's headder back in the days when he is still a Gosei Angel.

The final battle of Tensou Sentai Goseiger will start on Epic 48. What truths lies ahead of the current Gosei Angels? Will they be able to defeat Burajira and bring peace to the Human World?

Miley's "smoking Salvia" vid not a big deal for her

Role model status up in smoke?

According to TMZ, Miley Cyrus couldn't care less about the leaked video of her smoking salvia from a pipe. 

Apparently, Miles knew the video would get around and won't pay no mind to what her critics think. "Miley doesn't care. She's filming her movie [So Undercover] and getting on with her life," one of her friends revealed to the gossip site. 

Um, OK? Tons of us look up to Miley!

Kamen Rider The Movie on April 1

40th Anniversary Kamen Rider the Movie
Two new images from a supposed to be an upcoming promotional ad flier for Kamen Rider's 40th Anniversary movie, leaked all over differenttokusatsu forums. Tentatively called, Kamen Rider the Movie, that will be out on April 1, 2011.

The front of the ad shows a body shot of the first Kamen Rider, Kamen Rider Ichigo. While on top, you'll see a white shadow depicting the signature pose of Ichigo. Could this be a hint that the rumored Kamen Rider × Chou Den-O: Riders of the DenLiner, starring Hiroshi Fujioka, who previously played Takeshi Hongo/Kamen Rider Ichigo, and Hiro Mizushima (Tendou Souji/Kamen Rider Kabuto), is true?

40th Anniversary Kamen Rider the Movie
The second pic, what it seems to me, is the other side of the image above, wherein it shows Kamen Rider OOO with some Japanese texts in it. Could this mean that OOO will take part in Kamen Rider × Chou Den-O: Riders of the DenLiner? And if you noticed, there are Japanese texts on the side of Kamen Rider OOO's head. We still haven't known what could it meant. We will update you once we got some translations.

Kamen Rider the Movie is rumored to open on April 1, 2011.

Hannah Montana Forever Collector's Boxset pics

Release date is yet to be announced for the finale's boxset.

Pictures courtesy of All Your Disney Channel Needs

Rumored Kamen Rider Anniversary movie?

According to some user from 4chan who attended the pre-screening forKamen Rider × Kamen Rider OOO & W feat Skull: Movie Wars CORE, said that at the end of the film, a preview for the possible Kamen Rider 40th Anniversary movie which shows Kamen Rider 1 (Ichigo) and Den-O Sword Form posing together.

The 40th Anniversary movie is said to be called Kamen Rider × Chou Den-O: Riders of the DenLiner. This is supposed to be the first part of the 40th Anniversary and stars Hiroshi Fujioka (Takeshi Hongo/Rider 1)and he is fighting a so-called, Kaiser Shocker as he uses the DenLiner to gather up "all the greatest Kamen Riders of all time." It is said that this will be released this April 2011.

What makes this rumor solid it is said that Toei registered a domaincalled last December 9. Also, Hiro Mizushima (Souji Tendou/Kamen Rider Kabuto) mentioned in his Twitter accounr that he did some filming, although it is not sure if it is related to this one.

What makes Hiro's possible appearance is the appearance of thealleged casts sheet which list these people:

Kamen Rider × Chou Den-O: Denliner no Rider
Opening Date: April 2011
Length: 100min

Takeshi Hongo: Hiroshi Fujioka
Kaizelshocker's Great Leader: Takeshi Kaga
Yuto Sakurai: Yuichi Nakamura
Soji Tendo/Kamen Rider Kabuto: Hiro Mizushima
Shiro Kazami/Kamen Rider V3: Hiroshi Miyauchi
Shoichi Tsugami/Kamen Rider Agito: Toshiki Kashuu
Keisuke Jin/Kamen Rider X: Ryo Hayami
Kotaro Minami/Kamen Rider Black: Tetsuo Kurata
Otoya Kurenai/Kamen Rider Kiva IV: Kouhei Takeda
Sou Yaguruma/Kamen Rider Kick Hopper: Hidenori Tokyuama
Takeshi Asakura/Kamen Rider Ouja: Takashi Hagino
Kaizelshocker's Great Leader: Takeshi Kaga

Kohana: Tamaki Matsumoto
Naomi: Rina Akiyama
Owner: Kenjiro Ishimaru
What makes this list a little doubtful is that Kaiser Shocker's Great Leader is listed twice and Kouhei Takeda is supposed to play Wataru's son, Masao, who is Kiva IV, but he is also listed as his grandfather, Otoya! Plus, Hiroshi Fujioka's comma in his name was missing. Also, this list is only posted at /m/ and its authenticity is still in doubt due to these facts listed.

Please do take with a grain of salt until everything is confirmed.
