KR Drive 35 & CM released

Morota Satoshi getting hands on with the directing.

Thread / Wiki / Tumblr

Decade was on the polls two weeks because of Drive's break. Only received a 3.78. People were a bit divisive about that one.

So what'd you think about Kamen Rider Kiva?

Ninninger 18 & Dance released

Man, and I thought my handwriting was bad.

Thread / Wiki / Tumblr

Shinkenger results were pretty good. 4.56 out of 5 with 52 votes. Pretty good considering the top Sentai rating belongs to Gokaiger.

Go-Onger thoughts?

Garo -Gold Storm- Shou 11 & CM released

Made some screencaps, since I hate the thumbnail for Ryume from the official website.

Thread / Wiki / Tumblr

So Gouraigan got a dismal 2.12 out of 5.

What did you think of Ultraman Ginga?

Splash pics for the videos?

Can I request some splash pics for Garo, Drive, and Ninninger? It'd be nice to have some new ones for the new characters, mecha, etc. that has shown up. Please submit 1280x720 or 1920x1080 format pictures please.

Submit them to this thread

Remember that all splash pics used in videos are fan made! We have some really talented folks out there.

I'm making a gallery of the splash pics on my tumblr blog. I've started tagging them, so if you like a person's work, you can always click their name to see more of their stuff. (I need to go back and tag the stuff from past posts)

If you're an artist whose submitted a splash pic to us in the past, let me know. I'd like to make a post that links to a person's website if they have one, that way people can see that and check out your other work when they click your name.

Edit: Oh yeah, the rotating banner at the top of the forums is also user created. If you want to submit for that, just make sure the picture is 88 pixels tall. The typical width is 477 pixels, but I think other lengths work too.

What's your room look like?

My stance on transgender issues

Hello all,

First, sorry about the late reply to this. I spent the weekend playing the new Batman game. Plus, I wanted some time to think about how I wanted to reply to this issue since it's a very important one to me.

I care very deeply about issues that affect transgender, gay, and all spectrums inbetween. I have friends who are transgender. I've donated to a transgender causes (specifically this one: https://www.transactiveonline.org/ who provide support and education to transgender teens in Oregon). And I normally feel like I'm a thoughtful and progressive-minded guy.

But I'm only human and sometimes I say thoughtless and poorly worded things. So I apologize to anyone I've offended. That was not my intent. This is probably a good lesson in that we can all be a bit more thoughtful in all things we say and do. Which I will endeavor to do in the future. Thank you for reading this.​

Mega 46 v2 released

Just a quick note that we release a v2 to fix a grammar issue.

Ninninger 17 & CM & Special DVD released

It's summer! That means it's hot! Get a special DVD with this week's ep! (Got to love the lanterns also have a shuriken design on them.)

Ep 17: Thread / Wiki / Tumblr
Special DVD: Thread / Wiki

Low turnout last week for Goseiger. They also received a subpar 2.8 out of 5.

I think this one will have a better turnout. What did you think of Shinkenger?

Garo -Gold Storm- Shou 10 & CM released

Thread / Wiki / Tumblr

The first season of Garo got a 4.94. That's the closest we've had to a perfect 5. Can you believe some people still haven't seen it? Try something besides power rangers and masked rider!

So what did you guys think of Shougeki Gouraigan?


Shenmue 3 Kickstarter

Might want to check out the Shenmue kickstarter that's going on. The protagonist Ryo is voiced by Matsukaze Matsuya AKA MegaBlue. (MegaRanger release totally a coincidence)


Thanks to DekaBreak for the tipoff.

MegaRanger 46 released

With not Drive this week, how about a MegaRanger?

Thread / Wiki / Tumblr

If you were a Makai Knight, what weapon setup would you use?

Sword, Dual Sword, Spear, Bow, Axe, Other?



No Drive this week

Post your funny jokes and pics here

It's that time of year where golf takes over the Rider time slot.

KR Drive 34 released

Hail TLT!

Thread / Wiki / Tumblr

W got 4.68, even higher than Gaim, surprisingly! 75 votes too. That's huge!

What did you think of Decade? Yay or onore?!


Ninninger 16 & CM released

Thread / Wiki / Tumblr

Gokaiger had an astounding turnout. 67 votes for a praisworthy 4.63.

So what did you think of Goseiger?

Garo -Gold Storm- Shou 09 Prayers Promo v2 released

Forgot the HD version. Also, you should compare it to the original video that I ripped from Youtube. The original video had this terrible static noise that I was able to remove. It wasn't hard to do, but I feel kind of proud to have figured out how to do something like that.


Garo -Gold Storm- Shou 09 & CM & Prayers MV & Promo released

Thread / Wiki / Tumblr

Makai Senki got a glowing 4.62 review. Still a bummer that Garo polls only get half the votes as Sentai or Kamen Rider. Why must Garo be such an obscure show?!

How did you feel about the original Garo series? The show's nearly 10 years old, so hopefully most of you have at least seen that. I want to see at least 30 votes!

Kendama Cross CM


Watch out, kids! TV makes it seem like you'll be a cool guy like Hikari if you use a kendama, but they just turn you into hippies!


W 04 Blu-ray release

Remember we're having a W poll right now!
