Tokusatsu in Review: Garo Tougen no Fue

The Last of the Kouga-era Content (Beyond Rei’s Spinoffs) Closes with a Tale focused on the two Makai priests closest to him, alongside a pair of women attempting to revive a sealed evil.
Isn’t that always the way of this franchise?

Shinta's Take on Yugioh: Virtual World Arc.

Everyone falls into the Depths of Link Vrain’s earliest Predecessor, in the anime-only filler arc exploring the kaiba Brothers’ backstory with their own villains to boot.
Too bad the chosen villains were a bit ridiculous and it was interrupting a more interesting Arc.

Tokusatsu in Review: W Returns Kamen Rider Accel And Eternal

TRIAL!  Keiichi hasegawa Gives the Terui’s a final focused story…that’s pretty superfluous considering they already completed their character arcs.


Tokusatsu in Review: W Returns Kamen Rider Accel by ShintaReviews

ETERNAL! Riku sanjou Concludes all of the Video W content with Exploring Katsumi Daidou’s backstory…and in doing so harms the view-ability of one of the best Kamen Rider movies made.
Toei does not learn.

Shinta's take on Yugioh: Battle City

The most infamous arc in the franchise opens the door to the real way to play the game, the introduction of some of the strongest monsters in the game…and an Antagonist SEVERELY screwed over in import.
Also: a god turned into an executive producer. What idiot Thought that was a good Idea?

Shinta Reviews: Edge of Tomorrow

As another patreon request, Things ‘feel a little loopy’ in discussion of Tom Cruise being ‘anchored’ to the same day fighting shape-changing aliens, all adapted from a Japanese novel.
…It’s not a “Tokusatsu in review” episode as it barely mimics it’s source material.

RPG Hell: Megaman Network Transmission

Log on!  Shinta plugs into the Battle network game that’s technically not a battle network game which tries mixing the classic game-series’ battle elements and the Late-X-series 3D platforming into the BN’s RPG stylization!
Suffice to say, it goes badly.
