What can I say this has been another one of those great seasons of the Super Hero Time television block. The pairing of this season’s Kamen Rider Ex-Aid and Super Sentai’s Uchuu Sentai KyuuRanger. These shows are going great, great story, great characters, great abilites. This is a grand slam season for Super Hero Time.
It seems we are coming up to the end of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. A lot has happened, a ton of character development and revelations. We still aren’t done yet, it’s almost like they just restarted the show. That’s how good we’re talking Ex-Aid makes me feel. Emu hits level 99 with the ability to rewrite programs and I’m thinking he’s invincible. Guess again, if you’re not watching start now.
KyuuRanger is surprising me every episode or every two episodes. We’re coming up on the middle or climax of the show I believe. This show isn’t close to unraveling some of the mysteries and I have no idea how this is going to work out. Each member has his own talents, cool abilities, and they really work as a team. They’re really breaking the mold with this one!!
Hey, don’t forget about Zero Dragon Blood. It was just 13 episodes so it ended a while ago but it was another good one. I love the Silver Fang in Rei, we see he can turn it up another level. I wonder just how strong he really is, he seems to be right under Garo in turns of strength and power. Catch up with me! I get my Tokusatsu from Tv-Nihon.
So far not much is known about Toei’s 41st Super Sentai series show. We have the name of this group of heroes as Uchuu Sentai KyuuRanger. We have a teaser video from TV-Nihon that shows that we have nine total Rangers in this group. They seem to be based off a space zodiac constellation theme. I’m not sure. What do you think? This season of the series starts February 12th in Japan, TV-Nihon will probably start having it a week or two after them. Stay tuned for updates!!
Zero Dragon Blood is here!!! Fujita Ray reprises his role as Rei Suzumura aka Zero the Silver Fanged Makai Knight. He originally appeared in the Garo tokusatsu live-action series alongside the Golden Makai Knight. Garo is a show about people chosen to fight against demons or “Horrors” and other things that appear at night. Inga Horrors are the basic simple less powerful forms of Horrors, typically can be easily dispatched.
Most times Makai Knights are paired with a Makai Priest which can be a woman or man. Makai Knights tend to only be men though, they continually train and protect people. Once a certain level has been reached they gain a weapon particular to that person. The next level is to gain the Makai Armor, which is a great fighting armor that amplifies their powers and weapon. They are then able to fight and dispatch higher level demons. There is a one-minute time limit on the suit though, and then they must wait a while to summon it again. The highest level a Makai Knight can reach is Garo, a golden armor, with a special golden sword, a golden horse and unimaginable power ups.
Fujita Ray’s character now has his own show a spin-off of Garo, Zero Dragon Blood. His character Zero has a dual wielding short sword style or dual blade style. When he summons his armor he is known as the Silver Fang Knight. His blades become actual huge swords in a two sword style. Since Garo is his best friend it seems he’s just slightly less as strong as Garo. There can only be one Garo at a time in the same timeline. You can get this awesome show from TV-Nihon.
Game Start!! Wow, I’ve finally jumped into Kamen Rider Ex-Aid and I LOVE IT!! This tokusatsu show from the Kamen Rider series is the 27th edition. It’s part of Toei’s Super Hero Time Television Block with Super Sentai. The main theme is retro gaming or video games.
Kamen Riders always transform with some form of belt and multiple inputs. In this season the belt has slots for gaming cartridges, with each cartridge giving different power-ups. There is even leveling up to make matters even more interesting.
In this show our main hero Emu Hojo is an intern doctor, but firstly he’s a master level gamer. Gamer M is his code-name when he’s in gaming mode. Through a series of events we find out that people are getting video game viruses in real life. The virus is called Bugster and only doctors compatible with the Gamer Driver can defeat the virus. The Gamer Driver is this seasons’ Kamen Rider Belt.
Emu gains a belt and transforms to Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, with the Mighty Action X gashat (cartridge). Later he finds that there are other doctors that are Kamen Riders too. Each Rider has their own original abilities. Even the Rider that is the motorcycle of the show.
There is a main villain at this point Black Ex-Aid, and his henchmen that are somehow orchestrating things. It’s a great show so far and it might make my top ten Kamen Rider list.
