Written for the prompt: Tsukasa and Kaito double penetrating Yuusuke. god im vaguely ashamed of myself. those tall men cocooning in small welcoming Yuusuke
oh, 2000 words in and they FINALLY take their clothes off…
Let me tell you about something cat; here’s what you’ve been missing out from the last chapters of Shin Kamen Rider Spirits.
See that character to the left next to Kazuya Oki AKA. Kamen Rider Super-1? She’s called Yoshitsune.
So what’s special about her? Well buckle up boyo, because we are up for a wild one here.
Here’s the thing: Kazuya was trained by a Shaolin monastery in the way of the Sincere Shaolin Fist, yes?
See when he was a kid, he had two good friends who were both raised at the monastery. One of them was Benkei from Super-1’s show, the other is his sister, Yoshitsune.
So why am I telling you about Yoshitsune? Only because she is one of the coolest badasses in Kamen Rider period.
Seriously she kicks ass like nobody’s business and almost without any sort of effort. Remember what I told you about the Shaolin monastery? So yeah, she is also trained in the Sincere Shaolin Fist, and she is very good at it. Even Taki would get into trouble every once in a while.
You think it would stop there but oh no. They went further.
That’s right. She just annihilated a kaijin. A kaijin. With her bare hands.
And she does this twice.
And if you think that was enough, let me tell you how Yoshitsune kicks ass as a character.
a series of Argentine comics first published in 1992, drawn by Carlos Meglia and written by Carlos Trillo for the Italian comics magazine Skorpio (Eura Editoriale). The series first appeared in Spanish in November 1993.
Why was it forgotten?: TOO DIFFERENT TO BE MARKETABLE.
We kick off our very first ‘Good Forgotten Cartoon’ with something you’ve probably never heard of in your life.
Hell, I never even heard of it until I saw a thread on 4chan’s /co/ board where I had to wait for close to 2 hours before somebody dropped the name.
Let me just say, from the bottom of my heart; THIS SERIES IS FREAKING AWESOME!
Let me give you the basic gist of the plot: a Nazi scientist flees Germany after the end of World War 2 to continue his work in genetic engineering, and construct a series of cyborgs called Cybers. One of the cyborgs, named Cybersix escapes and flees to America where she adopts the secret identity of a male high school teacher.
By day she’s a teacher, but by night a hero who indirectly saves her city from the minions of her creator who come to seek her out. She destroys them in order to feed on their life energy called “Sustenence” so she can continue living.
So let me run this by you again; we have a transgender cyborg anti-hero fighting nazi robots in the 1990s. Is that not the most amazing idea you’ve ever heard?!
Not only is the concept cool but the actual content manages to measure up. Sure, the cartoon has to take a few liberties; like toning down some of the violence to make it suitable for television. Of course, it also ran into the misfortune of being a dark cartoon based on a rather unknown intellectual property so no one really knew what to make of it.
All and all, the cartoon definitely has it’s legacy, and though being the first of the good forgotten cartoons, it definitely gets the Cartoon Badlands Highest Recommendation
- in 2000, the creators of Cybersix filed a lawsuit against James Cameron and Fox Broadcasting Company, claiming that Cameron’s 2000 television series Dark Angel plagiarized Cybersix
- The method by which Cybersix obtains sustenance is different among the series’ incarnations. In the comic book, Cybersix sucks sustenance directly from the neck of those she hunts as if she were a vampire. in the animated series, Von Reichter’s creations carry glowing vials of Sustenance with them, which Cybersix would open and drink.
- the series received positive critical reception from the Pulcinella Awards
- Cybersix first aired in Canada on Teletoon then appeared in other countries like the U.S.A. on Fox Kids, and Kids Station in Japan.
- The title sequence and closing creditsfeatured lyrics written by Robert Olivier, which were sung by jazz vocalist Coral Egan.
- Cybersix is voiced by veteran voice actress, Cathy Weseluck
Such an amazing cartoon. Probably one of the best science-fiction animations I’ve ever seen in my life.
Until all you’ve had is a few bad quality episodes and streams spread across youtube and the rest of the web but fear not Badlanders!
Discotek Media is releasing a dvd box set this year! Please, pick it up when you can, you will not regret it!
And if you’re able to find the Cybersix comics, whether they be physical or digital, read them. Just read them.
I am incapable of writing pwp.
Okay. Got fuck all done today, going away to friends tomorrow and is tired and allergic. I do however have tea and a cat on my feet.
That means I am taking prompts for porn, so if there’s anything in particular you want, drop an ask. You can be anonymous. Will write anything Kamen Rider related. (also Gokaiger)
After Dinobot started talking about beast wars, I had to go and dig up my old livejournal post about my first introduction to anything transformers related ever! So here it is, written quite a few years back for a blogging competition (hence the rather overblown style), but enjoy!
Love is a funny thing. Love can be brief and agonizing, it can be funny and intense, and a lot of times it can hurt more than anything you’ve ever felt before. But sometimes, just sometimes, love can transcend what you imagine it to be and turn into something so utterly bizarre and beautiful that you think you might be dreaming.
But, let me start at the beginning. Years ago I fell in love, though falling is probably not the right term. It was more of a cautious crawling, the sniffing and exploring of two wounded animals never quite sure if we were friends or foes. There had been hurts and betrayals in our past, and in the present we were separated by oceans of distance, age and gender. But, the future was still unwritten. Maybe, just maybe, there might be something there worth exploring. So, that was what we did. From the start we had warned each other of all the weirdness in our lives, both of us half expecting that the things we loved would be stupid enough to make one of us turn away in disgust. But, we had promised honesty and an open mind, and so we moved forward, finding out more and more about each other, really liking what we saw. And then came the robots…
I had one of these growing up and I was such shit at it I literally have never heard one used for anything other than plonky, labored renditions of ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ in my living room. This is gorgeous.
I feel that things like this are posted so often with no historical information and I think that’s pretty damaging even if it’s unintentional. It just contributes to the erasure of non-western societies and their cultures.
The Kalimba is an African instrument common throughout Sub-Saharan Africa and it’s also known as the “sansa” and “mbira”. It was typically played while walking by traveling “griots” who keep the history of the tribe or village and for entertainment purposese. And get this: the wood or bamboo-tiled instruments were first invented 3000 years ago! And the metal-tiled ones appeared in the Zambezi River Valley 1,300 years ago. There’s so much history behind this instrument and it’s an injustice to the those whose culture it originates from to post about it and never once mention them. Anyway this is just tiny bit of the history I felt like adding from the wiki page, and the entire thing it very interesting so I’d encourage you to read it all!
Kuuga is so fascinating in the way its made, in the choices it makes with its story telling
one of the really interesting things for me is the fight scenes in Kuuga. They are almost always wordless, whereas normally in tokusatsu shows you get a lot of talking as a way to tie in the character who is in head to toe suit with their regular self
But Kuuga’s silence really helps the transformed fighter seem different and separate from Godai, and it adds to the tension of the story. So much of Kuuga’s story is fear for Godai’s wellbeing from his loved ones, and his strong resignation and determination for himself.
Kuuga is both a separate and deeply connected thing inside him, and the fight scenes exemplify this by presenting the transformed Kuuga as something not quite human, not quite Godai by largely limiting the use of his voice, which is the only identifier we have for him.
Contrast with say, Shotaro, from W. Shotaro has these beautiful stylised hand movements when he transforms, and he flicks his wrist. Little physical indicators to go along with his and Philip’s voices. W is all about what makes a human being, how the choices we make form us as human beings, so it is vitally important to the story telling that we don’t separate Shotaro and Philip from the suit. The story tells us they are contained within it, and Takaiwa Seiji’s excellent physical acting sells us this.
But Kuuga is a story that is about the sacrifices that come with being a hero, about choices that could mean immense personal suffering to alleviate the hurt of the world. So that makes it as important that we are reminded that the Kuuga transformation is partially something else, something other and that it’s a part of Godai as well.
This reminds me of an interview I saw with Inoue Masahiro who plays Kamen Rider Decade. He talked about why his henshin was so very simple and nonchalant compared to many other riders. Just inserting the card, flick the buckle, say the word.
It was because Tsukasa saw the DecaDriver as a tool. Nothing else. There was no grand mystic destiny, no showmanship, just a man with a fancy tool who needed to say ‘henshin’ when he transformed and that was it. This also shows in his fighting style, and in the way he uses other riders as weapons. They’re also tools to him, and only rarely do someone manage to break through and become a real person in his mind.
