My name is Jason Michael - I’m a 21-year-old currently working as a Photojournalist and Video Editor at a news station who loves toku and stuff. I used to write reviews sometimes, make gifs every now and then, but now I'm focusing on bringing sweet video content to Henshin_Paradise..

I started this blog to just have fun with my toku fandom and post my thoughts on stuff as I watch these awesome series. Just trying to have some fun! There really isn’t a set ‘point’ to this blog, primarily just to geek out over one of my favorite fandoms!

With all these rad-ass-fuck Kamen Rider BLU-RAY releases coming out, I’m tempted to use my Amazon.jp account finally and pay the insane amount of money for each of the box sets. I think Ryuki Box Set 1 is currently at around $140 plus shipping.

I would love to have some of these series on BLU-RAY but FUCk is that price crazy. Has anyone copped them or seen them? Are they worth it?

Even though I already watched the series when it was airing, re-watching the last half and then just finishing the finale again really makes me miss this cast. I really enjoy the whole crew in Wizard.

I’m almost finished with my re-watch of the last half of Kamen Rider Wizard and I still love the show. My one issue with it - which is the same as from when it was airing - is that the newer mage’s suits are just so bland and cheap looking. They totally missed a great opportunity to create sweet new Riders and in turn sweet figures.

Will there ever be a decent release of Hurricaneger? I absolutely love Ninja Storm and I’ve only seen a couple of episodes of Hurricaneger via Veoh a few years back. Heads up, when I peeped them on Veoh there was a bunch of them uploaded - don’t know if they are still up, don’t see why they wouldn’t be, though.

GARO fans. You excited for this?

I remember looking at the list of ‘Upcoming Anime’ on Anime News Network a while back and seeing this and instantly saying to myself, 

Oh, fuck, I mean, yeah, I get it, totally get it, makes sense, Imma watch the fuck out of it”

But… after peeping it a couple of times I’m not 100% down to watch it like I was when I first saw the teaser artwork. Don’t get me wrong, it looks awesome, the 2D style is rad, but the armor-CG-3D-Maya-3DsMax-style always turns me off in anime. And yeah, in this trailer the animators did a really great job of tying both styles together in a way that isn’t jarring to the viewers eyes. I don’t know, man. haha. I’ll end up watching it… but I haven’t even watched the current series. 

What do you dudes think?

Yea or nay on the anime adapation of GARO?

Earlier today/yesterday/recently, Orends: Range posted an article about Kaito’s terrible-secret-past. Totally an Girl-chan reference. Whatever. But yeah, someone translated some cool-ass-shit about Kaito’s life prior to the Beat Riders and prior to his bad boy dance career. 
I won’t post the article, but, if you haven’t read it you can click the image to head straight to Orends: Range to read their post.
Okay. I read the translation a couple of times, just to let it all sink in. And after much consideration - reading it at work, reading it now after work, I have come to the conclusion that Kaito might be the most thought out character in Kamen Rider Gaim. And honestly, the most dynamic, interesting, and makes me wonder why he isn’t the lead. I mean, I get why he isn’t the lead, but… he’s written so much better. Sure, sure, you have the typical ‘bad boy’ trope, but with added context you really get a feel for the character. Now, I’m sure if we got some more context for Kouta’s life prior to being a Beat Rider/dancer, maybe he’d become a more interesting character looking back. Probably not, though. 
Just my opinions, what do you dudes think?
Gaim is ending soon! OOOOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhh.

I know, you guys are totally burnt out on the Kamen Rider Drive stuff, but… look at these fuckin’ scans? The straight-up-quality that these art directors, costume designers, and prop team members put into Drive’s suit and gear is seriously awesome.

It’s pretty sweet that we’re getting another Space Sheriff installment - I really enjoyed the last movie - especially that suit, jeeze was it nice lookin’ - October 10, 2014, check it out on Blu-Ray and DVD. Damn, tokusatsu on Blu-Ray… 
Might have to cop that Kamen Rider Kabuto set.

"Why Did My Time Stop?"

After a mysterious and destructive large-scale incidents happened all over the world, humans who were caught in a “time has stopped-like” sensation appeared frequently. In order to understand this phenomenon, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department set up a “Special Unit” to work on incidents that happen under special circumstances.

SOOOOOOOO do I even need to keep posting how excited I am? I don’t think I have to… but, I will. Fuck to fuck, yes. This sounds rad as hell!

How crazy would it be if this episode was the aftermath of Gaim.



If they could string line it all together that would be insanely rad, haha.
