Happy Tenth Anniversary, Mahou Sentai Magiranger! photo
Happy Tenth Anniversary, Mahou Sentai Magiranger!
by Salvador GRodiles

Today may be Friday the 13th, but that doesn’t mean that we’re in for a heap of bad luck. In fact, Mahou Sentai Magiranger tenth anniversary has landed on Feb. 13, 2015, which means that magic triumphs over random superstitions. To commemorate this legendary moment, I’ve used a magical spell to gather various artworks that are dedicated to the magic-themed Sentai series.

As for the reasoning behind this post, Magiranger still holds the title as one of my favorite Sentai shows, so I thought that I would take advantage of this special day. One thing that made me fall in love with the series was the way how it developed the main team/siblings, since they had to master the ways of magic to fight Infersia's inhabitants. Thanks to the show’s great aspects (such as the sitcom-like moments between the Ozu siblings, and the classic RPG game-like elements), it wasn’t too hard for Magiranger to win me over. Also, the team's robot, Magiking, really knows how to rock a wizard hat.

If you’re interested in reading about my thoughts on the series, I wrote a c-blog about it in 2011. However, expect to encounter some grammatical errors along the way, as I was new to blogging back then. Anyway, you can check out the Magiranger-related art in the gallery below, along with the list of the artists who drew each piece.

This is what a Final Fantasy VIII HD remake might look like

I don't think Square Enix are ever going to make the much-demanded HD remake of Final Fantasy VII, but that doesn't mean we can't dream of how awesome a beloved game can look when done up in modern technology. For artist Scot...

Happy Kaixa Day! photo
Happy Kaixa Day!
by Salvador GRodiles

It's Sept. 13th, and it's time to celebrate an important holiday. Today marks the special day that's dedicated to Masato Kusaka, a.k.a. Kamen Rider Kaixa. Due to the fact that the guy dials 9-1-3 on his Kaixa Phone before he transforms, many toku fans have decided to turn Sept. 13th into Kaixa's special day. Hell, even Kohei Murakami (Kamen Rider 555's Masato/Kaixa) celebrates this day, as he writes a yearly blog post to commemorate this special occasion.

Aside from praising Masato, Kaixa Day is the only time of the year where you get to treat everyone like trash. Better yet, if you have a childhood crush, then you'll have the great privilege of manipulating him/her into thinking that he/she should be yours. Of course, you'll get to turn your love interest against anyone that tries to get in your way, since the point of this holiday is to make sure that everything goes well in your favor.

Seeing that these actions could ruin your current lifestyle, I recommend checking out 2014's Kaixa Day art gallery instead. As a heads up, the full credit to artists' pieces can be found below as well.
