Re: Ninninger 27 sanjou!

This was certainly a very sentai-style episode, but it was incredibly lacking in setup. It feels like this is the second ep of a two-parter, and the first ep was removed to make way for that clip episode last week. First up, this is such an important villain for Kinji, yet he shows up in the first t...

Re: Ninninger 23 sanjou!

There's no denying that this was the best written episode in a good long while. It still had its share of poor choices, but blessedly it was on a lower scale. Takaharu being the one to dress as something not conventionally scary, for example. Even when it's about other people, it's still about him s...

Re: KR Drive 32 Released

With the whole death thing already being spoiled in last week's preview, I was surprised that Shinnosuke didn't die from Mad Doctor instead. Maybe that's the setup for next ep's inevitable cop-out. Something something nanomachines resurrected him and/or prevented death. Dunno if that'd work for Belt...

Re: KR Drive 32 Released

Okay, while the bit with Gen was pretty cool, I actually dislike Nira more after this episode. It doesn't seem to me he came to any attack of conscience, he just rolled over on 001 because he's angry 001 is cutting him loose and wants revenge. He really doesn't have ANY loyalties, and his attempt t...

Re: Kamen Rider Drive Secret Mission type High Speed released

Having a decent explanation as to why an exclusive upgrade form isn't used in series is nice. Rinna just rattling off numbers during modification was pretty weird -- after all, if she could up the performance that much, why wouldn't she have done it already? So the placebo effect was an excellent so...

Re: Japanese Gestures

The fist-hitting-palm gesture when someone figures out something should count too.

Re: Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends

The action sequences and choreography in this movie were pretty great. They really make use of the surroundings, like with Kenshin vs Aoshi under the bridge. Kenshin's tendency to dodgeroll and attack more than just the torso is refreshing to see in a swordfight. I was surprised that they really did...

Re: 39th Super Sentai Series

The names for the ninjas are Aka, Ki, Ao, Shiro, and Momoninja? Pretty sure on everybody besides Shiro, the ni looks like a mu. Can't quite make out the mecha name. Too much red, but it looks detailed and stylish so what else can I ask for. The shoulder lamps are cool though. Did they really give th...

Re: Toqger 35 departing now

Incredible, they actually found a way to make people buy Resshas (if this positive reaction holds true in Japan, that is). Again, Akira finding a way to split off from the team. Akira's always on his own facing off against Schwarz or doing something off in the background, it's a wonder how he even g...

Re: Garo in a Vanguard Card

Nah, Vanguard hasn't been around as long as either of those shows. Fire Leon was a tokusatsu show again done by Bushiroad that aired last year. Apparently it's pro-wrestling themed.

Re: Garo in a Vanguard Card

Yup, Bushiroad (the makers of Vanguard) did a tie-in with Garo. I've seen a couple other examples of card tie-ins, like " Kerorodragon " in Battle Spirits (there's my plug for the week, don't forget to check it out), but the Garo ones do indeed stand out. There's also the "Golden Knight, Garo" card ...

Re: Is Tokusatsu becoming too mainstream?

I don't think toku can ever manage to become ultra mainstream; unlike anime, it's a bit more of a genre than a medium. But it's certainly true that toku's been enjoying an incredible increase in popularity these past few years. I've been seeing more and more people online who are both anime and toku...

Re: Zoids Genesis 01 DVD release

I've been interested in Zoids for a while, though it hasn't been very high on my list. Nice to see it being redone, that'll make it a bit easier to remember. So far it looks to be promising; instead of the typical real-world setting, it's much more of a fantasy world. Mixed with mecha and child prot...

Re: 39th Super Sentai Series

Ah, I've been guessing for a while now that they'd come back around to ninjas eventually. Glad to see that they've finally picked it out of the hat again. So assuming they're not doing something unusual for the 40th anniversary, I'd guess they'll go for police or beasts next.
