Otona Fami HEROES Launches


 Known for their entertainment website and magazine, Otona Fami is launching a new guide book specifically targeted at older fans of tokusatsu. So what’s inside? Find out after the jump.
This magazine actually broke the news that Seiji Takaiwa would be the suit actor for Kamen Rider Wizard. Otona Fami Heroes – Kamen Rider and Super Sentai – Official Guide is the title of the magazine and if you’re looking to buy this bad boy, it goes on sale September 2nd.

The guide book promises to have the latest information on Kamen Rider and Super Sentai. From interviews with the cast and staff of the various shows to behind the scenes quirks like looks at NG (no-good) design ideas for the two franchises, it’s here to compete with the other magazines.
So what’s in it? First is a pictorial guide to all 26 major Kamen Rider productions as well as all 36 major Super Sentai productions to date. In addition to that, there’s a cool little guide on the Calbi Snack Cards that have been around since forever in the form of a 16-page booklet. We’ll also get a pretty cool “movie version” round table discussion featuring the cast of Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.

Everything above is pretty awesome, but every good first release needs a huge draw and this magazine is definitely delivering. Titled “Director X Director Dream Interview” this magazine will feature an interview and discussion between Koichi Sakamoto (Kamen Rider Fourze, Ultra Galaxy Legends, Power Rangers) and Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Firefly) and that’s just awesome. We don’t know what they’ll be talking about yet, but it’s sure to be something fans will want to read about when the magazine officially launches.
