    I really like how the chest plate looks like actual metal, I wouldn't be surprised if they used real thin metal plates.

    Is it me, or do the boots seem higher than the original design, this set of boots looks like it's as high as your knee.

    Talk about commitment/dedication to the role. Sosuke Ikematsu hurt his foot just like Hiroshi Fujioka the 1st actor to portray a Kamen Rider ;)




    Jokes aside that's a very strange coincidence

    It's the 5th anniversary of Ex-Aid today. The Toei World channel has appropriately uploaded "Kamen Rider Ex-Aid" episode 1

    Another instance of James Gunn's appreciation of Kamen Rider

    I forgot that Nickelodeon resumed airing new Dino Fury episodes. Internationally they are also a few episodes ahead too

    Episode 12- Super Hotshot



    This episode is also the last episode on Nickelodeon too before Netflix drops the rest of them in a few days.

    Oh, that's good. I was hoping it wouldn't be too long before we got the rest of the season.

    Rumors about the 46th sentai are surfacing. This year the trademark is surprisingly late to show up.

    We have one more week of October. The entire month of November is left for speculation. The first weeks of December are when Bandai holds their meeting/presentation of the next sentai 1st quarter toy catalog


    RUMORS. Grains of salt and all

    So Sentai 46 and Zenkaiger would form a small shared universe similar to what Ultraman and others media are doing.

    It's kinda of also like how MMPR started with MMPR and In space being tied together

    That sounds very non-standard for Sentai.

    Or like the first five Kamen Rider series being a continuous universe, with Riders 1 & 2 creating V3, and with Tobei Tachibana being a regular in all five series, whether as a mentor in the earlier ones or a comic-relief tagalong in the latter two.

    In Sentai, Taiyou Sentai Sun Vulcan was a loose sequel to Denshi Sentai Denziman, bringing back Machiko Soga's Queen Bandora as a main villain and continuing some of the worldbuilding elements with the Denzi-Seijin and the Vader Clan.

    This rumor is not credible at all. Shirakura's attitudes about sequel shows being in a shared universe is well known.

    On reflection, I wouldn't want a continuation of Zenkaiger's universe anyway. It's a fun show, but it's utterly silly and fluffy and ridiculous. It's too insubstantial and cartoony to be worth building into a larger shared universe. I'd like next year's show to be at least somewhat more dramatic as a contrast.

    I'm intrigued. Are you able to find out where he discussed his views of shared universes etc etc.

    So Monday came and went and we got no trademark post. However partial toy listings have given the series partial name

    Bakutaro Sentai



    Also TV Magazine has teased Bakutaro Sentai in its preview for its February/March issue releasing on Christmas in Japan.

    Do we know how "Bakutaro" is written in Japanese? I wonder if it's the same "baku" as in bakuhatsu (explosion) and bakudan (bomb), and the same "Taro" that tends to mean "boy." Bomb-boy Sentai?

    Now you're making me think of the Bomberman Video Game franchise.
