It is with extreme sadness that I report that Nobuyuki Ishida has passed away. He has been battling cancer for several years now, and no doubt gave it hell during his fight. Hopefully, wherever he is, whether or not it is the Mirror Dimension, he is finally at peace.
Having seen Mirrorman for the first time all the way through this past year, Ishida’s performance is without a doubt one of the finest lead roles in any Tokusatsu programs, bringing a real sense of youth and realism borderline unseen in most performances then and even since, at only 21 years old (Younger than me!).
After months in the making, Kamen Rider is here! I had a fantastic time revisiting the classic show, and look forward to revisiting subsequent entries real soon! In the meantime, here’s a look at just some upcoming titles that will be covered on here…
To mark the end of the Heisei era come April 30th, I present to you reviews for the Heisei Ultra Seven! I would like to give a big thanks to XIG Fansubs for subbing the specials, something I truly thought would never happen! Check them out!
6 months in the making, I present to you all Mirrorman! If I haven’t expressed my enthusiasm enough already, I wholeheartedly recommend this show (It was well worth the wait). Please support the official streaming hosts for the show, so we can perhaps see more Tsuburaya programs available (Fireman please?).
Sorry it took a little while longer than I had hoped, but up are reviews for Denkou Choujin Gridman, a show that’s been getting a bit more attention as of late, thanks to a certain anime. As usual, please support the official release of the show at Toku!
With the remainder of Mirrorman‘s availability still uncertain (As with damn near everything regarding Tsuburaya and US distribution as of late), I present to you the Sentai series that truly started it all – Goranger! The show was a real joy to watch, and I hope everyone enjoys my rundown of it. I’d like to thank Rampage Subs for fully translating this legendary show for everyone to see.
