So they’ve done the press conference announcing the next Kamen Rider series, in this case OOO or Ozu (yes, like Faiz).
I kind of bailed early on in Double due to lack of interest and just not really getting into the story at the time, and I never did get caught up, but now I’m… let’s say cautiously excited for the new installment. The main reason is that the main writer is Kobayashi Yasuko, who is responsible for Ryuki (my favorite Rider series), Den-O, Shinkenger (which I love), and Timeranger (which I haven’t seen but have heard great things about).
I’m not crazy about the suit design, but it looks better than the initial magazine scans led us to believe, so we’ll see.
And obviously, the cast was announced, the characters introduced, etc, and here I’m intrigued by a couple of things.
So the impromptu Alias marathon is going along way faster than I expected it to, and last night I watched the season 2 premiere, The Enemy Walks In.
The enemy being, of course, one Irina Derevko.
So this seems like a good time to pause and post about something I’ve been thinking about since I rewatched episode 11, The Confession, in which Sydney first learns the truth about her mother.

So there’d been talk on Tokuyama Hidenori’s blog of a “Kuya revival” and that more details would be forthcoming. Well, the details came. They’re calling it […]
I really meant to make a more in-depth post about this, but the past week has been really hectic. In any case, Keitai Sousakan 7 is a tokusatsu series by Miike Takashi, and it’s about a boy named Keita and his walking, talking cellphone. Together, they fight crime! …Except it’s not really his cellphone, because […]
So this is actually not new, but I had only seen it at Nippon Cinema and hadn’t noticed it was up on Kato Kazuki’s YouTube channel in nicer quality… So, a horror movie is really not something I would be interested in under normal circumstances, but Kazuki is in it, in his first starring role, […]
The first 10 episodes of White Collar have been such a happy surprise for me. It’s actually the first USA (the network, not the country XP) original series I’ve really sat and watched, outside of a couple of eps of Psych I’ve caught here and there, and while I’d read that USA has been doing […]
