How connected are the tokusatsu universe?

Well, that all depends on how you define it.  The Ultra-Series, being made by Tsuburaya Productions, exists inside of its own multiverse of series.

There have been crossovers with other companies’ franchises (most notably Toei and the Ultraman vs. Kamen Rider special) but those are generally not in canon with the rest of the series.

When you get over to the Toei side of things, however, it gets a bit more complicated.  Back when Shotaro Ishinomori was in charge of everything, it seems (thanks to evidence from JAKQ Degenitai vs. Himitsu Sentai Goranger) that all of this series including Kamen Rider, Kikaider and the first two Sentai entries, were all in the same universe.

Later, however it seems the two existed in totally separate universes and the first proper crossover between the two happened in Kamen Rider Decade when Decade visited the world of Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.

It was clearly stated at that time that he was visiting a world without Kamen Riders. So, we can assume that the Super Sentai universe and the Kamen Rider universe exist at the least as separate branches of a multiverse.  Of course, before Kamen Rider Decade, all the Kamen Rider series (with the exception of the Showa Era and Kamen Rider Kuuga/Agito) existed on separate worlds as well and it was the conflict in Decade that they were uniting in the wrong way possibly leading to the destruction of them all.

This is further emphasized in several crossover movies, especially the Kamen Rider Drive vs. Shuriken Sentai Ninninger special where the Ninningers are clearly stated as coming from another universe and they will vanish if they remain in the universe of Kamen Rider.

So, Kamen Rider and Super Sentai take place in separate universes.  What about the Metal Heroes? Well, judging from the recent Space Squad movie and special, it can be assumed they exist in the same universe as Super Sentai.  Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger clearly knows of and can work with the Space Sheriffs so that connects them.  

We have also seen Gavan work with Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters within their own series, making his appearance canon. 

At the end of the Space Squad movie, we are also shown a number of heroes from Super Sentai and the Metal Heroes who are potential candidates for the Space Squad itself.  There are no Kamen Riders shown.  That’s odd because if they did exist in the same universe you would expect space-themed heroes like Kamen Rider Super-1 and Kamen Rider Fourze to be included in the lineup.

In the end though, Toei basically makes it up as they go along so trying to decide what exists in what universe with who is a bit of their arbitrary decision and hard to nail down.  For the sake of argument though I would say Super Sentai and the Metal Heroes exist in one universe while Kamen Rider and things like Kikaider exist in another.  

At least until Toei change their minds again.


A tiny video for Asmeeria’s OTP MEP! :D I would LOVE to make a long video with them again, and I think I finally have a story into which they would fit. :,3


Suspian + Pride and Prejudice

I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.

How would Eliot fare in Cutthroat Kitchen?

I think he’d be cranky to be on it in the first place tbh, because for Eliot cooking is something really emotional and personal. He’ll do it commercially, like I assume sometimes he cooks at the brewpub, and he’ll do it for a con, but to do it on a television show like that, I think he’d find it crass (not that I do, but Eliot would). So he’d be on it for a con, I assume, and that’d make him cranky. MURDER EYES. And the con probably would hinge on him losing, but it’s real easy to win by accident on Cutthroat Kitchen, so he’d probably go home with all the money AND a win, forcing Hardison to take his place backstage and do the shit he was supposed to do after losing. 

I bet at one point Eliot serves an empty plate in an attempt to lose and still wins because “if he couldn’t make it perfectly he wouldn’t serve me substandard food, and I love the glimpse that gives into the mindset of the chef.” – The Guest Celebrity Judge.

The CW’s Arrowverse crossover event will take place across four shows on two nights this fall, it was announced today at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

The action will kick off on Monday, Nov. 27 on Supergirl, followed by a special Monday episode of Arrow.

The crossover continues Tuesday, Nov. 28 on The Flash, then concludes on that night’s Legends of Tomorrow.

No storyline details were revealed, though that could change later today as assorted DCTV EPs appear at TCA panels.

Explaining the scheduling change-up/special Monday Arrow episode, CW boss Mark Pedowitz said that with Flash and Legends already paired up on Tuesdays, “We felt that it would be better and tighter in storytelling…. This was the best way to go.”
