JEFusion, or Japanese Entertainment Fusion, is a friendly Japanese entertainment blog that offers news and updates on the Japanese entertainment, focusing mostly on Tokusatsu, Anime, Movies, and Jdrama. This also includes various merchandise, like toy reviews and game updates.
Henshincon was the brainchild of Henshin Hero Philippines members Lorenzo Asentista Jr., Naz Escauriaga & Alexander Mondia and was the ultimate dream of JEFusion head honcho Daniel "GekiDan" Villodres. It was their goal to unite all Filipino tokusatsu fans and to change the Japanese Pop Culture Convention scene here in the Philippines. Besides cosplay, the event was to focus on transforming heroes from the live-action and anime genre.
