KR Wizard opening?

So it's that time of year where we try to figure out the lyrics to the opening song by ear.

Thread

Check it out and let me know if you think something should be different. I'm definitely having trouble with the chorus.

Daimajin Kanon Commercials and ep. 18 released

Uchuu Inu Sakusen with Takanashi Rin

Even if you don't watch the show, check out the commercial page. It comes with a lot of non-Kanon commercials that are interesting. Especially this one, Uchuu Inu Sakusen. Someone watch that and tell me what it's about. All I know is that it has guest stars from various toku shows, and that girl is ShinkenPink.

Happy 46th anniversary, Star Trek!

Polls

Wizard thread.

Go-Bus thread.

I added a couple polls to the thread, just to see how people are feeling in general about the shows.

Just for some context. Wizard had a 7.7% viewership. Compared to Fourze's first episode of 6.3% and final episode of 5.1%.

Go-Busters had a viewership of 4.4%, up from 3.3% last week. I guess a bunch of people are still skipping Go-Busters.

Go-Busters 28 released


Why haven't we had a showdown between the heroine and villainess of the series yet?

You got Power Rangers in my Sentai

Click to make big

Ummm, Toei. You do actually know which series you licensed to be Power Rangers right? I get you'd want to do double the promotion since Power Rangers is so well known, but maybe make sure your logos are on the right series?

By the way, we know that the TV-Asahi page spells the grunts' name as Ghouls. I just didn't want to use that because Ghouls in the west are more associated with undead and zombies.

So we took it back to the etymologicaly roots and used Ghul, since Ghoul comes from the Arabic word Al Ghul. Since the grunts have demon horns, I think a word that's more associate with demons is better. If this sounds familiar, that's because the Batman villain Ras Al Ghul has it as part of his name, plus he's known as the head of the demons. So this all works out.

So Super Climax Heroes?


This poster looks great, does anyone have a larger version of it?


Hello, Blade. You're reading for this game?

They're using actual TV actors for the characters? BAD ASS. Thank you for eventually doing this.

Spaceman Jones is on assignment again 28-39 released

Tommy Lee Jones

In case you missed our previous release, this is a series of Japanese commercials that star Tommy Lee Jones as an alien investigating Earth. If you read Kotaku, there was an article about this commercial series a couple weeks ago.

Apparently they're still releasing these commercials. I think the last one was just released this year a few months ago.

These commercials are pretty funny on a few levels. Tommy Lee Jones is a great actor, and he plays the alien is totally deadpan. (He has a few speaking lines in Japanese. The lines are very short, of course). At the same time, Jones is also an alien in that he's just a white guy who's surrounded by a bunch of Japanese people.

Spaceman Jones' thought narrations are read by the hauntingly memorable voice of Taniguchi Takashi.

Kuroki from Go-Busters catches a peeping tom

http://www.tv-asahi.co.jp/ann/geinou/geinou_news/contents/hot_20120828_1...

Apparently he saw the peeper looking up the skirts of high school girls. I guess the peeper was a 60 year old taxi driver, but still, Kuroki's actor is in his 40s, so it's not that unfair of an age gap.

AkibaRanger Radio?

So episodes 3 and 4 have aired, but I'm thinking of maybe putting off on working on this. I mean, I listened to three and thought it was sorta interesting. But the guests are Seki Tomokazu and Oki Kanae. One was the Alpaca monster of the week, the other is a voice actress who just happens to like Sentai (She has appeared in previous Sentai shows).

That's really tangental to AkibaRanger, don't you think? Not that it's bad. It's more Sentai related than the previous two shows, but for now I'd like to focus on working on some other stuff and seeing if the show gets more interesting. Anyway, if you guys were wondering where the new shows were, that's what's going on.
