Toqger Returns

Forgot to mention this, but this was Arakawa Fumie's directorial debut. Why is this important?

It's because she's the first female toku director at Toei. And I feel like reaction to this movie have been overwhelmingly positive. Not to make a gross over generalization, but I think having a lady director will inject something different and new to the toku genre, since men and women have different ways of thinking about things.

She's had a history of assistant director work from all the way back to GaoRanger. She mostly works on Sentai, but she's done some work on Drive and various other movies too.

Toqger Returns v2 released!

Sorry, messed up some of the bonus stuff. Should be fixed with v2's now!

Garo -Gold Storm- Shou 16 & CM & Guren Byakuren Promo released

Lovely! I guess there's some confusion/mistranslation problems. There's no Garo Musical. Makai Kagekidan is just a unit formed to sing Garo songs. It might not even last beyond Gold Storm (although hopefully it will).

Also, Toei. Please, do more covers where they're reversible. Because this is damn awesome.

Also also, I wrote a thing where I talk about how good Toei movies have been recently.
