Kamen Rider Ghost! Suit Design, Revealed!

Gandtheriders

Ever since news broke out about the confirmation of the Kamen Rider Brand’s next installment, Kamen Rider Ghost back in late April, fans have been itching to see the first reveal of the 17th Heisei Hero.  I dare say that it was well worth the wait!

Official first design art of the Kamen Rider Ghost suit, and concept art for the Ghost Rider System, scanned from a Japanese toy catalog.

With the utilization of his unique tool for transformation, the Ghost Driver and “Ghost Eyecon”, this Rider brings a sleek design to the table.  Along with the famous, modern bug eyes, he sports a black and orange color scheme– very fitting for the month of October.   As the art demonstrates, when the Ghost Eyecon is activated, a hooded ghost will appear and cloak the user of the Rider System, completing the change by adding the matching hooded jacket, which is a very nice touch.

Kamen Rider Ghost is scheduled to premier October 4th, but here is a chance we may see him sooner.  It is rumored that Ghost will make a traditional Neo-Heisei cameo appearance in the new Summer Movie, Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future.  Let’s hope it’s true, because I’m excited to see a demo of this new Rider’s abilities.  The next we expect is the reveal of the actor to play the role of the civilian.

What do you think of the design of the new Kamen Rider Ghost?  Let us know your thoughts! HENSHIN!

Second season of Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! It has been a month since Illya and Miyu became magical girls and sealed all of the Class Cards. Rin and Luvia have been forced to remain in Japan to clean up the aftermath, such as the now-unstable magic in the area’s ley lines. While helping with the cleanup, the seal on Illya’s mysterious innate magic goes berserk and she loses control of her transformation. By the time she has realized what happened, a mysterious girl who looks eerily like Illya appears, apparently bent on bringing destruction down on the original whose heart she seems to have spawned from, and making matters worse she holds the power of the Archer Class Card, with which Illya holds a special bond, within her body.

First Look! The CW Network Reveals DC’s Legends of Tomorrow!

With Arrow ending it’s third season this past Wednesday and The Flash Season Finale coming this Tuesday, it’s no surprise that the CW will be making another spinoff show.

Titled DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, it follows a team created out of both rising heroes and villains that have been seen in both Arrow and The Flash. The team consists of Firestorm (played by Alia’s Victor Garber), White Canary (Arrow’s Caity Lotz), Hawkgirl (Broadway Star, Ciara Renee), The Atom (Arrow’s Brandon Routh), Captain Cold and Heatwave (Prisonbreak’s Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell) and are led by Timemaster, Rip Hunter (Doctor Who’s Arthur Darvill). Their mission? To stop the destruction of humanity’s future by Vandal Savage and his powerful army.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premieres next year on The CW Network.
