Re: KR Zero-One 14 released

I really want to comment on how this episode really surprised me by how much it effectively packed into it' run-time. There were several occasions where I checked the clock and thought 'oh wow , we're not done yet? awesome'. Is Ikazuchi the first time someone with the title of Kamen Rider is treated...

Re: Ryusoulger 37 released

Most people might complain about how the show has lately been neglecting their other rangers, but I think this show has been seriously under-utilising the fact that they have a big metal dinosaur suit that walks around the streets! This is really only the second episode that featured Tyramigo in a '...

Re: KR Zero-One 13 released

I'm on the same page as everyone else, really. I was hoping that our new detective pal would stick around a little longer, but I honestly think he contributed just enough in the last two episodes to feel important while managing to make his farewell emotional. It almost makes me forget that we say g...

Re: KR Zero-One 11 released

His eyes being blue probably just mean he was built from the ground-up to be an assassin robot, rather than being hacked like the regular Magears.

Re: Ryusoulger 34 released

I was ready to just assume that enough time had passed from the previous episode to this one that all the characters had done all the mourning they needed to, so if they didn't say anything about Nada's death, I'd be fine with that. But the episode opens with them trying to cheer up Koh with a comed...

Re: KR Zero-One 11 released

It was admittedly a bit odd how this story kind of took what looked to be developing plot-threads from the previous episode and cut them short in favour of giving Aruto a really bad day, but I don't necessarily dislike the direction this episode took. Our main character is facing adversity from both...

Re: Ryusoulger 33 released

Finally, I think I'm more confused than ever about the makeup of the Druidon generals. The chess motif has been apparent since the start. The mooks are the pawns, Tankju was clearly a rook, and meanwhile Uden was obviously a bishop and the other one they named dropped is a queen. But then what are ...

Re: Ryusoulger 33 released

So, if I were to look at this episode entirely in a vacuum, it would actually be pretty decent. The villain here was pretty menacing, the character moments in the beginning and nice and fun, most of the heavy moments I thought were done well alongside some really nice cinematography, and the action ...

Re: KR Zero-One 10 released

This was pretty decent all around, an 'average' kind of scenario where the good guys and the bad guys clash a bunch while doing little things to develop the characters. I like the simple, little moments with Fuwa and Yaiba. Although their last exchange about them going 'hey we might have to fight on...

Re: Zero-One series discussion and poll

I might be one of the few people who thought the first quarter of Ex-Aid was just fine, and I enjoyed Build immensely especially in it's early episodes. Zero-One has basically been doing just that. It's been slightly less serialised than those two shows at this point, but it's been greatly entertain...

I know my memory is terrible, but what rivalry? Didn't Zamigo show up like 3 times?
That he only showed up like 3 times was part of the problem, yeah. The show tried to play him up as the thieves' (mostly just Kairi's) arch-enemy, but it was rather half-baked.

Re: Poll: What's your opinion of Ryusoulger?

The other thing I forgot to mention that I think is really important is that the villains suck. The best sentai seasons have villains that have characterisation of their own. The Deboss Legion and Shadow Line should be the gold standard reference point for how to do it. We never have any ranger and...

Re: Poll: What's your opinion of Ryusoulger?

I'd say this show is 'average' in the sense that it feels like it is just ticking off a check-list of an average Super Sentai season rather trying to do or be anything special in of itself. The production quality is as good as ever, so it is at least always nice to look at.

Re: Ryusoulger 32 released

I can say the positives of this episode outweighed the negatives for me in the end, though the negatives feel like they really could have been avoided. For the third time in a row, we're mixing in a superfluous monster with the Gaisorg plot, except the writers chose to actually 'tie it in' by having...
