So to hype up the coming of E3, the first trailer to a new fighting game has been released. As you probably gathered from the title, DC Injustice is a fighting game from NetherRealm, the people behind the MK games. We don’t know…well, anything else about the game right now, but it does look pretty amazing. Seems like we’ll have a new dark DC game continuing the trend started by Arkham Asylum. We’ve had a DC VS Mortal Kombat game in the past and now it’s DC’s time to shine alone with a dark fighting game.
It has been announced via the M-78 blog run by Tsuburaya that Ultraman Retsuden has, yet again, been given an extension. The series was originally set to air 39 episodes before being extended one cour (13 episodes), bringing it to a full year. It has now been revealed that the show will continue on into a second year with another cour extension and a new opening.
Ultraman Retsuden is a “biography” show featuring the exploits of various Ultraman characters in the form of clip shows and old episodes with special segments featuring Ultraman Zero. Retsuden has managed to garner fairly decent ratings for what is essentially out of order reruns. The show has also been home to the first TV airing of Ultraman Zero the Movie as well as the first source for various Ultraman Saga clips. As the series moves into its second year, its staff hope to challenge Ultraman Cosmos’s title of longest Ultraman show ever. Based on this, we can expect that show will try to run at least 66 episodes, one more than its fifth cour would bring it to.
Into addition to the extension, the series will also start playing its fourth opening starting with the 53rd episode, airing July 4th. The new song, titled ULTRA STEEL, will be sung by Toshihiko Takamizawa, lead vocalist of THE ALFEE, one of Japan’s most successful rock bands. THE ALFEE have recently begun a nation-wide tour, adding to their list of over 2,000 live performances.

Kamen Rider Fourze, the final frontier. Or so one would say. Fourze is the 2011/2012 Kamen Rider and for the most part, the show is getting a fairly good response. Many are enthralled with the adventures of misfit group of students of Amanogawa High School. And from time to time, so am I. But, there is something about the show that is leaving me with a bit of a lukewarm feeling, or as a famous teen superhero from Young Justice would say, just “whelmed”. Not many shows do that, so I need to figure out…why?

For those of you who have been following the New 52 from DC and have been hoping for a big crossover event, well, your wish is granted! While the Trinity War story arc is going to be the first New-52-wide story arc next summer, we’ve got two events before that to tie us over! From April to May, several story arcs will be concluding by crossing over into several different series. DC has been so kind as to provide a pretty great reading order for us. The Court of Owls, the story arc that has been central to the main Batman comic since the relaunch will be tied up in the Night of the Owls event. The Culling will be comprised of the various Young Justice related title, all leading up to the first issue of The Ravagers, one of the second wave comics from the New 52.
Long ago, there was a time before Godzilla was campy. It was a time when Godzilla was an allegory for man kind’s destructive power. Slowly but surely, this allegory was whittled away and for a long time, we ended up with a very fun, but oddball set of movies in where Godzilla is more of a superhero than anything else. This film is the start of that evolution from monster to hero!
