Re: Ninninger 03 sanjou!

So far this series has come off to me as desperately trying to mix Magiranger and Shinkenger. It's not just you. I have yet to watch Magiranger beyond the first 2 eps, but it definitely feels like it wants to be Shinkenger. Sadly it also feels like it's trying to be these other shows, but not its o...

Re: Ninninja mecha and names revealed

Huh, didn't know that. Regardless, thrones aren't a new invention, you can hardly say everything using a throne is ripping off Warhammer I didn't say thrones were a new invention. What I said was that a mecha, which is essentially a guy in a throne, controlling the limbs attached to said throne, is...

Re: Ninninja mecha and names revealed

Yeah, something bugged me about it as soon as I saw that and I finally put my finger on it. I know ideas might not be coming as easily as they used to for Toei with Super Sentai, but ripping off Games Workshop ? Not cool Toei. Is that a joke, or do you actually think Toei cares about Warhammer, or ...

Re: Ninninja mecha and names revealed

Re: Gokaiger 21 released

I have to say that the one thing that let it down was the choice of manifestation for the Boukenger's Grand Power. If anything, it should have been Zuuban. After all, as a member of the team, he embodies the idea of "ancient high technology even more than Eiji's origins do and that as he has the ab...

Watch the scene again and pay closer attention to upper side of the tire. He did use the tire to accelerate.

Re: KR Drive 01 released

[09:38] <Phoenix512> the one guy will probably be "I told you this will be like W!" Actually I said it would go one of 2 ways - either it would be a knock off of W with tokenistic window dressing, or this would go down as one of the worst PR campaigns in the history of Kamen Rider. Man am I glad it...

Re: Drive Promos released

The third promo definitely has me on the fence; it could go wither way. The start of the preview definitely suggests it could be its own show, but the bit at the 0:33 mark had "Gaia Memory Dealer scene" written all over it. Time will tell as to just how much of a "fresh twist" this show gives us I g...

Re: Drive Promos released

I don't think prevention of leaks is a bad thing at all. I think they want people to tune in with little or no preconception of the show itself which it's a good thing. I don't see the obsession of knowing everything about a show before watching it. If I want to do that, I would just read Wiki summ...

Re: Drive Promos released

I dunno, I never get what all the fuss is over something that hasn't come out yet. Most people change their minds once the show actually starts anyway. At the end of the day, I think it comes down to the whole marketing machine and 0our responses to it. Noone has seen an episode as yet, but we've h...

Re: Drive Promos released

And if you swap it out for Horrorscopes and Astro Switches, you have Fourze. What's your point? You just seem opposed to Drive on a vague, nebulous principle. The concept of "bad guys corrupting people with power" isn't remotely new to Kamen Rider, nor is "hero fights monsters." On the contrary, th...

Re: Drive Promos released

Stale and unoriginal? When's the last time a Rider has been a cop? Agito? Every Rider tries to solve mysteries, that's pretty much a core element of the franchise. Fourze solved mysteries, too, oh my goddd~~~ It's not just the cop element or the solving mysteries element. It's the fact that, with h...

Re: Drive Promos released

"Man, I love W! This show looks like it might maybe, if you squint incredibly hard and drink an entire fifth of whiskey, be vaguely similar to that, so obviously it will be total shit." - an argument presented in this very thread No, actually, the argument I was making was that if you look at all t...
