Ask Chris #166: Kamen Rider Fourze Is Better Than Your Favorite Superhero

AskChrisNew

Q: Can you tell us about Kamen Rider Fourze? I understand if it's too painful to discuss. -- @Desgardes

A: Kamen Rider Fourze is the single best piece of superhero mass media in the past ten years. And considering that the past ten years also brought us stuff like The Dark Knight, Batman: The Brave and the Bold and that Avengers movie that everybody likes, that's no small thing for me to say.

As for how I know this -- and why Des here refers to it as a painful subject -- it's because the final episode of Kamen Rider Fourze made me cry harder than anything else I've ever seen. That last episode of Brave and the Bold put tears in my eyes, yes, but Fourze had me sobbing so hard that my neighbors started building an ark and gathering up all the beasts of the land in pairs lest my tears cause a flood that wiped away the sins of man.

Toei Hero World Tokusatsu Museum Is Set To Open This December In Japan

TokuMuseum01

There was a time when I thought that the single best reason to go to Japan was that amazing Hello Kitty amusement park that featured a parade where Kitty teamed up with Noah (you know, from the Bible) to lead animals back from the far reaches of the galaxy. I'm still pretty interested in seeing that in person, but on the off chance that I needed something else to check out over there, we now have Toei Hero World to look forward to.

Set to open to the public in Mihama, Japan this December -- just in time for the Christmas spirit to take hold of you and cause you to buy a couple of plane tickets for the CA staff -- Hero World is a museum devoted entirely to the proud history of tokusatsu programs like Kamen Rider and Super Sentai (better known over here as the Power Rangers), complete with rides for the kids -- and by that I mean me and Caleb -- who are so devoted to superheroes and their giant dinosaur robots.

Bizarro Back Issues: Kamen Rider Takes On Bat Man (Not That One) (1971)

kamen01

One of the best things to happen in comics in 2012 was the digital release of a bunch of titles by Shotaro Ishinomori, the creator of Kikaider, that Legend of Zelda comic that ran in Nintendo Power, and a bunch of other comics about monsters getting kicked right in the face. The one that drew my attention the most was the classic Kamen Rider, and while our own Dylan Todd wrote about how great these comics are, I tho
