Delena Reunion!

Last night, March 25, 2011, former BFFs Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez caught up over dinner! Selena Tweeted the photo above and Demi Re-Tweeted it, along with writing:
"Fun dinner with @selenagomez"
The two haven’t spent time together in quite a while, but it looks as if they might have a strong future ahead of them!

Do you think Selena and Demi will continue to spend time together on a regular basis? Or, do you think this was a one time thing?

Next on Goukaiger: Jan, Shafu and Gao/Shinken Goukaioh?

Before it airs tomorrow, I'm showing you what to expect on the 6th Gokaiger episode which will focus on Luka (I really think she is one of the prettiest ranger) and soon-to-be Gokaiger’s Gattai with GaoLion. Gekiranger episode is entitled Niki! Niki! Training Kenpo!

Reprising their roles as Jan/GekiRed and Master Xia Fu (Sha Fu)Navi (the irritating bird) asks our Gokai team to find a Tiger Boy and for the treasure of Wisdom. After a failed battle with the main enemy, Doc and Ahim falls a group that teaches Kung-Fu or to be exact Kenpo Lessons then later meets Jan and Xia Fu to prepare.

We now have photos of the Gokai machine combining with GaoLion. GaoLion will take GokaiOh's legs and arms with its chest having the GaoLion. There is also a hint that this new formation will include some Shinkenger origami mechas. To add, this formation will be called ShinkenGokaiOh. This Gattai form will retain the ShinkenOh’s kanji.

Delena reconnection on Twitter!

Demi and Selena had a major twitter moment this passed weekend! When Demi tweeted a pic of herself riding a roller coaster in Disney, Sel tweeted: "@ddlovato hahaha flashback!! Oh god times!" But Demi's response was the sweetest of all:

Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle update, plus story background!

Just recently, more info about the upcoming Super Sentai 35th Anniversary film,Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle has just been released and it seems that they are going to the Super Sentai Great War route!

Many years after the legend war, Zangyack came back to attack the Earth. The Gokaigers head out to fight them. While they fight, 5 Ranger Keys are stolen a group of mysterious people. These mysterious people were no other than the Gosei Angels: Alata, Eri, Agri, Mone and Hyde. They immediately transform into the Goseigers. The Gokaigers and Goseigers starts fighting for the GoseiKnight Ranger Key. However, suddenly the Black Cross King appears.

The Black Cross King, a being who fought against the first Super Sentai team, Himitsu Sentai Goranger before with the Black Cross Army, at that time, he was called the Black Cross Führer. He has been revived because of his grudge against the Super Sentai teams, and likewise is raising other old villains from hell to oppose them.

Alata, infiltrating the Gokai Galleon and trying to steal the GoseiKnight Ranger Key. Not very angelic, Alata!

But before Alata can get his hands on the GoseiKnight Ranger Key, the Rangers were transported into various "spaces" by their enemies in which they encounter various villains and one of those is...

Brajira, who appears in front of them and declares himself as: The Messiah Brajira of the Resurrection, who was revived thanks to the powers of the Black Cross King and dons the Black Cross Army belt upon his waist. Now he is after Alata and Captain Marvelous. Asides from Brajira, other lead villains that were revived includes Go-onger's Crime Minister Yogoshimakuritain andMagiranger's Hades God Dagon

Meanwhile, Agri, Moune, Joe and Luka were transported in the Edo Period.

On top-left: GokaiRed vs. BoukenRed and Mega Red; On bottom-left: GokaiPink shooting Battle France and Battle Kenya and on the right: Super GoseiRed evading the JAKQ who is about to perform the JAKQ Koback! Could this mean the start of the Great Super Sentai War?!

In this film, we will also see a different angle of the first episode's Legend War. Signalman, BlackKnight (BullBlack after Hyuuga took over), MagiMother, Wolzard Fire, ShikenRed (Kaoru Chiba), DekaMaster, DekaSwan, Zubaan, Mele and Rio also participated along with Big One and Aka Ranger.

The debut of this killer weapon, the Super Sentai Bazooka which is a tradition of the franchise's history of team bazooka finishers!

Due to this film's filming being postponed, it is not sure if Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle will still premiere on the May 21 release date.

Toku heroes tweets to the children!

Because of the disaster that strucked Japan last March 11, a lot of kids are left traumatized with what happened. That is why, Teruaki Ogawa who is best known as Ninja Sentai Kakuranger's Sasuke aka Ninja Red created a Twitter account called, @tokusatsuhero in which past and present actors from various tokusatsu shows such as Kamen Rider, Ultraman and Super Sentai posted in character to encourage the kids to stand up and face the future.

The thread still continues on 4chan's /m/ thread as past and present actors are posting their messages in their superhero selves. In case you are still doubtful of its legitimacy, Asami Kai aka MagiBlue/Urara Ozu from Mahou Sentai Magiranger posted about this in her blog and if you still can't believe it, Yousuke Ito aka DekaGreen/Sen-chan from Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger talked about it in his blog! Asides from that, some actors retweeted it in their respective Twitter accounts and if my memory serves me correctly, Hiro Mizushima retweeted his "Tendou" status in his official Twitter!
