The Founder has passed.

It is with incredibly sad news that I rely to the fans and otaku's all around the world that Daniel Vilodres. Gekidan Owner and Founder of this website has passed away.

GekiDan is known for getting groups of people together and discussing many different types of nerd related culture from Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, Ultraman As Well as Anime that he enjoyed and liked to talk about to different types of Science Fiction and Stories in general.

Gekidan would be kind to everyone and help everyone with whatever they needed. Gekidan was the kind of man who would listen to your opinions and let you know what he thought. even if it was a pointless dispute over something little.

As a Member of JEFusion I vow to do my best to keep this site going. keep it from blowing into nothingness. But this site wouldn't be anything without what Dan has built and the fans that we have gathered up. thank you so much for being there.

From what I Know Dan Gathered an Illnes a few weeks ago. What that Illness was I am unsure but it would not get out of his system. It sadly won.But Dan's Legacy will never go away. He was a great man to everyone in the Tokusatsu Fandom and the Otaku Community of the Planet Earth in general.

    Lying down with my head
    on my heavy luggage here
    Take a deep breath...
    into the blue heaven

    Even through I open my eyes wide or shut,
    the same fine scenery's passing just before me
    But I've got to watch it now, or will never know

    I'll take you to the future
    where no sadness is ever making sense
    With only beam of delight once you gave me
    put in my precious pocket
    I will be... gone into the blue sky

    Yesterday or tomorrow
    What would it matter at all?
    How about a whistle
    ...everything will be alright

    Even though I try to run or walk again,
    eventually I'm reaching to the same destination
    But I've got to run for now, or will never change

    I'll take you to the future
    where no more war is ever taking place
    With only memory of happy moments
    spent with you on my mind
    I will be...

    I'll take you to the future
    where no sadness is ever making sense
    With only beam of delight once you gave me
    put in my precious pocket
    I will be, I will be... gone into the blue sky

    I'll take you to the future
    where no more war is ever taking place
    With only memory of happy moments
    spent with you on my mind
    I will be, I will be... gone into the blue sky
