General Toku/Kaiju thread Anonymous 05/26/2020 (Tue) 20:16:26 No. 1456
Is the MCU considered a Tokusatsu? Other shows/toons and comics that could be considered Toku? What happened to the Power Rangers BOOM! comic? I was posting the PR comic general a couple years back but since Kyle Higgins got replaced as a writer around the Shattered Grid event which seemed hurried as hell I lost interest and the previews just smelled like shark jumping, also the Go Go series, which started pretty weak but it git gud later only to be dragged into the Shattered Grid mess.
>>10228 Hopefully the more expensive sets aren't as bad.
>>10279 >more expensive Well NECA doesn't have the license anymore so the only expensive option is Monsterarts. The worse you have to worry about is mispainted eyes. But they usually do digital printing now.

Probably the best posters so far.
>>7780 I thought Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla had a pretty good human story. Even Godzilla 2000 had a decent human story with the Godzilla watching group being storm chasers and Katagiri being a humongous asshole. >Final Wars. It's funny you mention that since I remember some people online complaining about the humans being flat. I liked it though since it's just pure badassery. >>9860 Is he going to look like the Mecha Godzilla from Ready Player One? The design feels similar.
>>10305 Getting serious Primal Rage vibes from this.
Recently tried getting into Super Sentai. Watched the first couple of episodes of several series and so far, I've enjoyed Megaranger the most. The fight scenes and basing episode 3 on Digital Devil Story has been pretty fun, but at the end of episode 4 the acting seemed pretty bad, and not just in the over-exaggerated way I've seen in the other sentai. Really hoping this doesn't become a recurring problem. Dropped Carranger episode 1 because it seems like Dappu will be an annoying faggot for the entire season. Dekaranger seems pretty decent, but the siren noises are really annoying and detract from the fights. The intro music to Maskman is what sparked my interest in the first place, but the opening is a waste of the song. The show itself seems competent, but a bit bland. Watched the first episode of Gorenger, the directing seemed pretty bad and there wasn't much acting to speak of, there was too much explosion spam, but on the other hand there's a shot where a stuntman is thrown down a five foot drop and lands right on his ass. Akibaranger is fun in the same way as Gundam Build Fighters, but I'd like to have seen at least a few sentai before watching it in full. Any recommendations on what I should drop, pick up or keep watching?
>>10365 Carranger is extremely comedic so that rules out many more modern Super Sentai since they tend to be as well. If you like darker toned Sentai then I'd say try Jetman. I started watching it recently & while it's pretty lighthearted at times, it gets pretty serious the rest. The reds love interest DIES by getting sucked out into space when their space station is attacked. That's in the first episode. The black member of the team is also this really violent depraved loner type who is constantly fighting physically with red.
>>10362 I would love to see a Primal Rage movie.
>the color grading is reversed Neat.
Intro looking good.
Kong and Godzilla vs mechagodzilla
>>10676 Call this movie predictable if you must but this is exactly what I wanted.
>>10678 Its what everyone wanted.
>>10679 I didn't want this film to exist.
>>10679 Nah, Kong+Godzilla team up is gay shit. Its of lesser quality than what its made of.
>>10690 You're fucking gay if don't think rivals teaming up against a mutual threat isn't the radist shit.
>>10691 Kong and Godzilla don't exactly synergize so it doesn't add anything good to the fight; it just becomes clunky. Fights are usually rad, dumb looking fights are not. Godzilla and Kong both are the type of characters where when they're on the screen they take up most of it so what can be done is minuscule.
>>10693 >Kong and Godzilla don't exactly synergize
>>10693 >Kong and Godzilla don't exactly synergize You've seen all of one single clip of a snippet of a fight.
>>10697 Don't exactly need to see more; nor really needed see it really. Its very obvious if you think about it. You literally can't get reasonable fights from these types of team-ups.
>>10698 >You literally can't get reasonable fights from these types of team-ups. I suppose i should actually make that not vague, i mean that the way godzilla and king kong fight literally clash; at best your getting the garbage in the clip(as in moves that are pretty close in """quality""" to some of the dumbest shit Showa godzilla did). These team-ups with these types of characters tend to just be a big blowout rather than a big fight for a very good reason. I suppose to actually add something i haven't said though, the dumb glowing punches from mecha godzilla are probably actually worse to me despite how much i've talked about this. Also mecha looks worse in motion than the toy in general.
>>10698 >>10699 You guys gotta learn to have fun with big monster brawls.
>>10700 I definitely wouldn't be drawing a line if i didn't care about giant monster fights. The fight looks retarded and by most measures was destined to; the only thing it has going for it is the team-up aspect and guess what? Desire for a team up instead of a fight isn't the same, the type of rivalry king kong and godzilla have doesn't really give a feeling of history; so i really can't give a singular fuck in regards to it. A fight requires much less to think about. "Biollante and Godzilla versus Bagan" or whatever would be the equivalent in regards to relevance feeling wise. Biollante probably works better as a partner though.
>>10702 I'm sorry, anon, but I diagnose you with wrong & gay.
>>10703 Not a diagnosis from a random, how will i ever recover. >>10702 >"Biollante and Godzilla versus Bagan" For whatever reason i feel the need to make this match up more reasonable now, either "Battra and Godzilla versus Bagan" or ""Biollante and Godzilla versus SpaceGodzilla" are actually coherent. Whatever worth that has. Kinda forgot that space godzilla was even a monster that took multiple things on.
>>10676 That's the worst looking Mechagodzilla I've ever seen. >>10690 >>10693 I think it works perfectly well. It fits too since King Ceaser used Kong's roar in the original GvMG. The biggest problem is that Monsterverse Kong really hasn't been shown to be as powerful as what Showa Kong was. Showa Kong could intrensically absorb electricity and shock Godzilla with his touch. Monsterverse Kong needs a magic axe. Not to mention that it was previously shown that Kong's entire species was shown to be wiped out by some big snake-lizard monsters that don't even have any particular special abilities.
>>10715 Well Showa Kong was originally supposed to be Frankenstein and I think they were going for a Rocky vibe, with an underdog willing to take on the champ for the full 12 rounds. People forget Rocky lost in the first film but proved he could go past the limit.
>>10163 When has anyone ever made a convincing fake scene for an up-coming film? It just doesn't happen, I've never seen a leak that wasn't what was on the screen in the end.
>>10800 When the avengers came out, someone made a fake end credit scene with Spider-man crawling around Stark tower and pestering the window wiper guy.
>>10149 >>10163 >>10153 I'm man enough to admit I was wrong. The clip is fake.
>>10839 And no mechagodzilla in a Godzilla suit.
>>10841 Can't win em all. Still I really liked the movie.

The movie was good. It' fixed all the issues I had with the previous one. No bullshit family drama, human characters never interrupted the action, and the kaiju fights are a lot longer and more engaging instead of one sided fights like the GKotM
>>10853 King of the Monsters was a lot more epic in scope & hype. Plus had a kick ass theme. I'd rank this just below it but I did really like it. Just a straight forward monster brawl.
