Sonic Quest: The Death Egg Saga. Issues 1 - 3. (comic book mini-series) Review. (Sonic the Hedgehog)


Today I, Kaiser Sensei am reviewing something that I hope to cover more of in the future, comic books.  Yes, those sweet thin stack of papers with the cool little drawings inside.  A lot of great and s**t things happen in them and a good chunk of them are worth posting reviews about.  In my first and (hopefully) not last comic review, I'm taking a look at some Archie-era Sonic the Hedgehog comics.  This is the three issue mini-series, Sonic Quest which came out all the way back in 1996.  Will they be good, bad, or just plain meh?  Find out in this review.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full article.)

Pop 'n Music Portable (PSP) Review.


I've been a fan of Pop 'n Music for a long time now.  It's one of my favorite rhythm series of all time.  The downside is that it's also quite an expensive series to collect, they typically don't get released outside of Japan.  Once you've managed to get a hold of the game and a console that can run it, you'll need to buy a special controller for it.  However, there are some cheaper games in the series and today I'll be reviewing one of them.  This is Pop 'n Music Portable for the Sony PlayStation Portable.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review.)

Himitsu Sentai Gorenger Episode 1: The Crimson Sun! The Invincible Gorengers - Summary/Review



Time to go back to 1975 for the VERY FIRST Super Sentai season ever Himitsu Sentai Gorenger or Secret Squadron Fiveranger. A very straight forward name for a season with no prior expectations to live up too. How did this long running show begin? Click "read more" for the full article. Also, before you ask, I have no idea why this season uses the name "Renger" instead of "Ranger", it is the only Sentai season to do it.

 Fun Fact! Originally, this season and the second Sentai were not counted as part of the Super Sentai timeline but was later changed in 1995. Meaning for 20 years this was not technically a Super Sentai but just a Sentai.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex Episode 1: Section 9


First released all the way back on October 1st 2002, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex has reached a cult following status over its almost two decade existence as an abridged adaption of the Ghost in the Shell manga released in 1989 and the first Ghost in the Shell movie released in 1995, with the series in whole racking up four other anime series, five full-length animated movies (not including that strange live action adaption with Scarlett Johansson that had a better reception in Japan than the states), and four games starting from the PSOne's Ghost in the Shell in 1997 to the more recent failed Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex- First Assault Online in 2016 to 2017 respectively. I'll be taking an in-depth look on this series as a whole, starting here at Stand Alone Complex, and giving you my take on it.

Kamen Rider Dragon Knight. Episode 1 - Search for the Dragon. Summary/Review


Wait a second! This isn't the next Kamen Rider Zi-O or Kamen Rider Black review! Nope, it isn't.  This, my friends is the start of my third Kamen Rider series review.  This is Kamen Rider Dragon Knight, an English adaptation of Kamen Rider Ryuki.  So, why pick this one over Ryuki?  It is because that hearing about how we got a second mainstream English Kamen Rider show got me very curious.  Hopefully I'll be able to cover Kamen Rider Ryuki someday and make comparisons. Hopefully I'll cover Masked Rider in the future as well.  So, ladies, gentlemen, and what ever you identify yourself as. I am proud to introduce I, Kaiser-Sensei's first summary and review of Kamen Rider Dragon Knight.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full article.)

Coffee Crisis (Nintendo Switch) Review


You know what's awesome? Metal, coffee, aliens, and retro video games.  So, lull and behold, a game that takes all of these elements and rolls them into one neo-retro beat 'em up called Coffee Crisis.  The name itself already makes the game sound awesome.  Will Coffee Crisis step up and be a great game, or will it just be another phoned in failed attempt at reviving the genre?
