G3 Princess coming to the Gokaiger movie

G3 Princess
A few hours ago, we have reported that there are rumor about Go-Onger's great power and the possible “All Girl Sentai Unit”. And just recently, Otonafami magazine confirmed that the G3 Princess will make a comeback on Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger movie!

G3 Princess is the idol unit composed of gravure idols Rina Aizawa, Yumi Sugimoto and Nao Oikawa who played Saki, Miu and Kegaleshia respectively. They released a single entitled “G3 Princess Rap.” It is remembered that Sugimoto and Oikawa hinted this on their blog last May.

Their role in the movie is not yet revealed. With this in mind, there will be a big possibility that the rumored “Go-Onger Great Power”, which is a car similar to an Engine, is true.

Thrilled to be on her own and determined not to be intimidated by New York City, she accepts a job as nanny and moves in with highflying couple Morgan and Pandora and their four children, Emma, Ravi, Luke and Zuri. With a whole new world of opportunities within her reach, Jessie begins to navigate young adulthood and life in the big city. She surprises herself with how much she comes to rely on the support and advice of the kids in her care. Also helping to keep her moral compass in check are Bertram, the family’s butler, and Tony, the building’s 20-year-old doorman.”

Super Sentai Wedding Whacking episodes!

Well there's the idea of the June bride so I thought it might feature the wedding whacking in Super Sentai and what it was supposed to be. Here they are:

In Dynaman episode 13, Frog Shinka was sent by the Jashinka as a means to kidnap the brides and make them marry the awful monster.  However the plan was foiled by Rei Tachibana who got caught in the process but it was part of her plan to rescue the others.  

In Turboranger episode 12, the wicked Jarmin unleashed Sigh Bouma to steal love away from the women that it eventually reached marriages.  Zulten teased Jarmin about her trying to impress her established lover Zimba even more.  Eventually the fake marriage of Riki and Haruna caught Sigh Bouma off-guard and broke her broom so they can beat her.

In Jetman episode 20, the Vacuum Jigen was out there stealing the hearts of women who are about to be married as a means to cease the human race from continuing their line.  It was an episode where a child falls in love with Gai Yuuki and where he and Ako Hayasaka nearly got "married".  Overall, it was a hilarious episode with a touch of drama.

In Gaoranger episode six, the plot involved the Wedding Dress Org kidnapping brides and turning them into mannequins. Wedding Dress Org had a deal with Saori Shimada (a receptionist) that he (she?) will give her youth.  The plot was foiled and the brides were restored.

In Abaranger episode 28Shiyouhousenkamereon was assigned to kidnap brides in favor of becoming the wife of Dezumorlya to enter into.  He was wrecked by several fake marriages.
In Shinkenger episode eight, the Gedoushu with no monster of the week were kidnapping brides.  Mako and Takeru had a standard western wedding and a Japanese wedding.  Plus, it was crazy to see Ryuunosuke disguise himself as a bride to fool the Gedoushu.

Thanks to Sean Akizuki's Sentai Blog for the nice commentary.

Joe Jonas wants to be friends with Demi Lovato again

A number of reports have surfaced online about Joe Jonas giving an interview stating that he would like to be friends with Disney star Demi Lovato again. Although, we haven’t seen either star try to connect with the other, so we won’t believe this rumor quite yet!
Joe and Demi broke up during the Jonas Brothers / Camp Rock 2 summer tour and Joe immediately jumped into a relationship with “Twilight” star Ashley Greene, with Ashley visiting Joe during the tour and putting their relationship very much in Demi’s face. By the end of the tour Demi found herself at a treatment center and shortly after Joe broke up with Ashley.
Do you think that Joe and Demi will be friends again? They were once BFFs and we would love to see them close again, but we have trouble seeing it… Weigh in with your opinion in the comments section.

  • The Gokaigers used Dynaman's Gokai Change. Made a pose while shouting "Big Explosion" and the Gormins behind them exploded.
  • GokaiSilver was in the movie, but didn't have any speaking roles. Just in-suit kinda similar to Accel during Movie Wars 2010.
  • There were no great power for Tensou Sentai Goseiger, so there's probably going to be a Goseiger episode. Navi is the one who brings back GoseiKnight.
  • The Goseiger's returned the Ranger Keys.
All Super Sentai Mecha
  • There were no robot that combined the 35 machines, it was justall the robots using their final attacks, although they used old footage for some attacks for the older series.
  • Zangyack has cornered GoseiGreat, Akaranger and Big One shows up to save them. Kaoru Shiba along with the other extra Rangers, except for Rio, Mele and Wolzard, came together with Akaranger.
