GoGo Sentai Boukenger vs. Super Sentai
GoGo Sentai Boukenger vs. Super Sentai is a direct-to-video tokusatsu superhero movie; the DVD was released in February 2007. The movie celebrates the 30 year anniversary of the Super Sentai Series; the movie starts with Time Demon Chronos meeting with High Priest Gajya on getting rid of the Boukengers while obtaining three Goodomu Engines. As they plot, a mysterious figure watches above them. Afterwards, the Boukenger, excluding Bouken Silver, were summoned to battle some Curse. After their battle, they see Gajya and Chronos, with Chronos sending the Boukengers to a different dimension. Eiji was alerted of the situation, but before he could set out to rescue the other Boukengers, a mysterious figure named Aka Red, who describes himself as the embodiment of the fighting spirit of all Red Sentai Warriors, meets him and gives him the Super Sentai Address Book, which lists information on every Super Sentai member, he opens it to find Tsubasa Ozu, a.k.a. Magi Yellow from Mahou Sentai Magiranger. Eiji tries to talk to Tsubasa during his boxing match, but ends up getting ejected from the side of the ring since he was interfering with his match.
Next, Tetsu, a.k.a. Deka Break from Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger, is undercover trying to negotiate with Alienizers when Eiji interrupts. Eiji tries to acknowledge Tetsu's background as Deka Break, but Tetsu beats him up and sends him out the window to maintain his cover. Elsewhere, at the Duel Bond site, Chronos shows a time device, a reverse flowing hourglass, to Gajya, which when augmented to a Goodomu Engine enable him to revive one of the Three Sorcerers, past Super Sentai villains whose magic caused the greatest harm to the Earth. Chronos would set another up at the Matrix ruins with Gajya remaining to welcome the second Sorcerer while Chronos installed the final device at the countryside. In Chronos' time prison, the Boukengers find out they were blocked of their technology and they meet up with Hikaru, a.k.a. Magi Shine from Mahou Sentai Magiranger. Eiji receives a call through his GoGo Changer from Asuka, a.k.a. Abare Black from Bakuryū Sentai Abaranger, all the way from Dino Earth while taking care of his daughter.
He tells Eiji that Aka Red contacted him, but the connection to Earth is weak since the power of the dimension door is weak as well. Contacting him was hard through the GoGo Changer, he loses connection to Eiji after a few minutes. While Chronos set up his time devices, Hikaru talks to the Boukengers about Chronos and the Boukengers are introduced to Smokey, although at first mistaking him as precious. Eiji tries to meet Nanami Nono, a.k.a. Hurricane Blue from Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger, before her rehearsal, but is blocked by security and many fans. In a desperate attempt to catch Nanami's attention, Eiji shouts out "Hurricane Blue," which Nanami is surprised by. Chronos was successful in summoning Meemy, from Mahou Sentai Magiranger, who meets up with Chronos. In frustration, Eiji throws out the Super Sentai Address Book and decides to battle Meemy and Chronos on his own. After Eiji is overpowered, he was rescued by Hurricane Blue, Abare Black, Deka Break and Magi Yellow. However, the various Super Sentai warriors get in each other's way and Meemy and Chronos were able to escape.
In the time prison, Satoru reveals. TsueTsue from Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger was revived and welcomed by Gajya. At SGS, Eiji receives a message from Satoru concerning Chronos; the Super Sentai warriors promised to help Eiji rescue the rest of the Boukengers and meet Aka Red while the time prison holding the Boukengers and Hikaru is disappearing. Chronos and the other villains found the last hourglass tipped over, with the final Sorcerer missing, when they were attacked by the Super Sentai warriors; as the time prison started to disintegrate, Sakura analyzed and concluded that the clock with root-like designs in the wall was the key to their escape. The Boukengers and Hikaru utilize the Magi Lamp Buster's Smoky Shining Attack, accompanied by Zubaan, on the clock in the wall. Although this does not damage the clock at all, it causes another root-like clock in the real world to appear. Aka Red orders the other warriors to destroy the clock while he takes care of the villains, transforming into Magi Red and Gao Red and frightening both Meemy and TsueTsue in the process.
As Aka Red fights off the villains, the others succeed in freeing the Boukengers and Magi Shine from the alternate dimension. The Super Sentai warriors and the villains face off, with the Sentai warriors getting the upper hand until Furabiijo from Ninpuu Sentai Hurricanger interferes after "taking a walk", but with all three Sorcerers present and accounted, Chronos fuses them all into the Staff of the Three Philosophers, his intended goal from the start. With the power of the staff, Chronos enabled himself to grow to gigantic proportions with new golden armor; the Boukengers countered with Ultimate DaiBouken and SirenBuilder, but Chronos proved too powerful for both the mecha and were defeated. In a last-ditch effort, the Boukengers summoned DaiVoyager, defeated by Chronos as well. Aka Red, sensing the danger, came back into the action, becoming a vessel to power up DaiVoyager using the Spirits given by the remaining Super Sentai warriors, enabling DaiVoyager to access its Burning Legend form.
Burning Legend DaiVoyager went on to defeat Chronos with the special attack, 30 Super Sentai Soul, sent the released sorcerers back into the afterlife. After their victory, the Boukengers and the other Super Sentai warriors return to the SGS headquarters, parted ways; the Bou

At Amanogawa High School, Mr. Ohsugi takes Gentaro, Yuki and Ryusei out of computer class and takes them to the Rabbit Hatch to meet up with the rest of Kamen Rider Club. There, they meet a strange lady named Shizuka Shirayama, a member of OSTO Legacy and requests the Club's assistance. Argeeing to help, the Kamen Rider Club members are taken into a bus and blindfolded for security reasons.
But on the way, they are attacked by a robot named Black Knight. Transforming to hold the pursuing Black Knight at bay, Kamen Rider Fourze battles the attacker while Ryusei and the others find themselves boarded by Inga Blink who Ryusei fights while getting her out of the bus. However, Inga destroys the accompanying van to blocks the road while wounding Ryusei with a one-inch punch; when Fourze arrives, warning the Kamen Rider Club not to interfere, Inga summons Black Knight to take her away. Once at the OSTO Legacy's base and meeting its skating leader Harumi Saeba, the Kamen Rider Club learn that Inga is of the Alicia Federation who created the Space Ironmen like Black Knight and the Kamen Rider Club must go to space to disable their strongest Space Ironman Satellite Weapon XVⅡ. Despite Harumi's insistence that it would be impossible, Gentaro intends to befriend XVⅡ.

Confirming it as he arrives after she disables XVⅡ's Brain and Shizuka hijack XVⅡ and assume their true forms: the Kyodain Groundain and Skydain.
Inga reveals that the Kyodain are Space Ironmen built by her father, Professor Blink, alongside Black Knight. But when the Kyodain develop independent AI from a surge of Cosmic Energy with the notion that they have been chosen as the dominant life forms, Professor Blink had XVⅡ seal the Kyodain in human form after being mortally wounded by them. However, to circumvent the set back, the Kyodain used the Kamen Rider Club to destroy the signal relays that kept them from the Brain Room so they can override the mainframe to take control of the satellite and unlock their full abilities.

Refusing to have XVⅡ sacrifice himself, Gentaro transforms into Fourze Cosmic States to stop XVⅡ's body from destroying Japan by forcing it through a warp gate that sends it crashing to the moon. However, succeeding in convincing the AI to cancel the self-destruct, Gentaro's gambit damages the Astro Switches as he accepts XVⅡ's friendship before the Kyodain jump him and Ryusei. Watching, the Kamen Rider Club are powerless until they have an e-mail from XVⅡ containing specs of a new Astroswitch that needs a mass of Cosmic Energy to create. Though the act would be impossible, remembering Gentaro's words that they are a symbol of their friendship, Kengo sends everyone to the school to give an Astroswitch to each person that he befriended at AGHS; as Meteor takes Gentaro to safety, with the last Astroswitch given to Gamou with everyone thinking of him, the simultaneous activation of all forty causes a chain reaction that produces the Fusion Switch.
With Kengo giving him the Fusion Switch, Gentaro uses it and finds himself in a new form with the Meteor Switch: Kamen Rider Fourze Meteor Fusion States. Overwhelmed by Fourze using Meteor's abilities with his own, Kyodain take battle outside XVⅡ as they assume their vehicle modes with Fourze defeating them on the Powerdizer before finishing the robots off with the Rider Fusion Drill Kick. Once restored, XVⅡ thanks the Kamen Rider Club before leaving to explore the universe to find his place in it. With her mi

The Ultra Series known as Ultraman, is the collective name for all the shows produced by Tsuburaya Productions featuring Ultraman, his many brethren, the myriad Ultra Monsters. Debuting with Ultra Q and Ultraman in 1966, the Ultra Series is one of the prominent tokusatsu superhero genre productions from Japan, along with Toei produced series Kamen Rider, Super Sentai and the Metal Heroes; the Ultra Series is one of the most well known examples of the daikaiju genre, along with Toho's Godzilla series, Daiei Film's Gamera series. However, the Ultra Series falls into the kyodai hīro subgenre of tokusatsu shows; the Ultraman brand generated $7.4 billion in merchandising revenue from 1966 to 1987, equivalent to more than $16 billion adjusted for inflation. Ultraman was the world's third top-selling licensed character in the 1980s due to his popularity in Asia; as revealed in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy, the Ultramen are a technologically advanced civilization who were identical to humans. They were evolved into their current state of being following the activation of the Plasma Spark, which replaced their dead sun.
Ultraman and his many kin are red-and-silver and have glowing yellow almond-shaped dome eyes and various abilities, most notably firing energy beams from their crossed hands and flight. They share a strong cultural sense of justice and duty, a majority of Ultramen joining the Space Garrison to maintain peace in the universe from invaders and monsters; the Ultramen that are sent to other worlds are given Color Timers, or "warning lights", which blink with increasing frequency and turn from blue to red if an Ultraman's energy supply dwindles or he is mortally wounded. Due to human pollution and the light filtering effects of the atmosphere, an Ultraman can remain active on Earth for a limited span of minutes before their energy is depleted and they die; this forces an Ultraman to either merge with a human host body. The latter process has healing properties that include reviving a dead person with their own lifeforce. Ultra beings appear to be near-impossible to permanently kill, as several times an Ultra being has been killed only to be revived by another member of their species.
As when Mebius' allies revived him with their energy after his defeat by Empire, an Ultraman can be revived with a massive energy infusion. Ultramen always try to avoid battles in inhabited areas or near innocent bystanders, try minimize collateral property damage. If these concerns cannot be met, a city like Tokyo could be destroyed; the show Ultraman was followed by many other series. Sequels to the original series are: Ultra Seven, The Return of Ultraman, Ultraman Ace, Ultraman Taro, Ultraman Leo, Ultraman 80, Ultraman Tiga, Ultraman Dyna, Ultraman Gaia, Ultraman Cosmos; the studio tried a reinvention of the hero through the "Ultra N Project", which involved three heroes: Ultraman Noa in late 2003, Ultraman Nexus, ULTRAMAN. This was followed by a return to old-school style series in the form of Ultraman Max. In the course of the Max series, another new hero known as Ultraman Xenon was introduced. April 2006 saw the 40th anniversary series, Ultraman Mebius, which signalled a long-awaited return to the original universe.
