Weekend news: Amazon Riders, City on the Edge of Battle, Ultraman R/B, and more!

This week has been a wild ride for fans of Japanese scifi/fantasy/horror!

  • Kicking things off, we finally have trailer for Godzilla: The City on the Edge of Battle! They’re…still not showing us Mechagodzilla.

  • We also got an official look at the new Ultraman series! It’s not “lube”, “rube”, or “Louvre”, as initially speculated, but “R/B”, with two heroes in red and blue. I wonder if Lupinranger vs. Patranger has anything to do with the decentralization of heroes.

  • Amazon Riders” is finally streaming on the US version of Amazon Prime! The gory show is only the third Kamen Rider thing (after Kamen Rider V3 and Masked Rider the First) to get a legit US release, meaning that we’re being presented a pretty skewed look at the franchise as a whole, but as a fan on the darker side of the property, Amazons is right up my alley!

  • Platinum Games has a yokai-focused release on the horizon, titled World of Demons. It looks surprisingly old-school in the monster designs, going back to Sekien, I suppose.

  • The latest trailer for Bleach looks okay, for what’s there, but could really use more Chad.

  • The Kaiju Remix Series now has a Gomora figure up for preorder. These continue to be neat looking, but expensive items.

  • Finally, the Godzilla shop is now offering a kigurumi, presumably for wearing out on your daily chores.

That’s a wrap! Not a lot of news, but getting Amazons alone is enough to get excited about, the rest is icing!
