Re: Finding/buying Toku music

In America, iTunes has Gaim's opening, a few incidental songs (mostly from Kamen Rider Girls), and the Kamen Rider Generations Final soundtrack (including at least the ending song).

Re: Kamen Rider Build 2017-18

If I may stick my nose into this can of worms (which is an expression I sincerely hope never to use again), I may note that a big challenge for translating in general is balancing accuracy with looking/sounding good--for instance, the Build Driver technically says "Yaaay" sometimes, but our group al...

Re: What is going on with Toei lately?

Kyuuranger I actually dropped; even when I was at a cliffhanger it felt like I had to make myself watch the next one. It's possible it's improved since then, but it certainly wasn't working for me. Build has a lot of potential. I feel its characters don't always seem like real people in and of thems...

Re: KR Build 07 released

I like the bit of grit this episode has; its themes of illegal refugees and children unable to be formally educated contrast really well with Sento's optimism rather than clashing with it, and better yet, the themes didn't feel forced for me at all. It's very easy to push the issue in such a show so...

Re: KR Build 06 released

I'm really enjoying the series, though I feel it's started to slip a tiny bit since the previous episode. Maybe some of it's the treatment of the biological semi-horror themes that feel like the writers are either restricted by their audience or just don't know how to write "creepy" as a genre. This...

Re: Front page formatting

I know some sites allow different image sizes by just updating the URL; in Imgur, placing an h just before the file extension shrinks a widescreen image to around 550px in height. With that said, though, doing that or some equivalent for every image necessary would be quite a pain. If the front page...

2018 Sentai Names Trademarked

So it looks like we have two new Sentai teams: police and what seems to be thieves. http://tokusatsunetwork.com/2017/09/toei-trademarks-keisatsu-sentai-patoranger-kaito-sentai-lupinranger/ Whether this means one series with two teams, two different series (geared toward different audiences?), or sim...

Re: Poll: What's your opinion of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid?

This was a pretty interesting series. I have to admit I really hated it at first, but it vastly improved--and, for something about video games, got surprisingly in-depth--as the show went on. The story/arcs: The first arc, in my opinion, was rather hard to watch. It seemed like none of the character...

Re: KR Build 02 released

I really feel sorry for the director for having to work with Ryuga's relationship with his girlfriend so early on. It's hard to take her death seriously because we hardly know her at all; her death doesn't resonate with me because, as hard as the director tried to emphasize their relationship via fl...

Re: KR Build 01 released

Some other miscellaneous notes:
  • Using math equations for a Rider Kick seems somewhat campy, but in a good way.
  • The driver doesn't sing/rap throughout the transformation.
  • I want to make a Trump joke, but I probably shouldn't.

Re: KR Build 01 released

This has to be the most tonally incongruous KR episode I've seen since Ex-Aid's Christmas special. That said, I kind of like the bit of grit it does have. Ryuga (who I can only guess will be the secondary rider) doesn't start out as much of a jerk as Hiiro was, and the episode doesn't seem to introd...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.26 released

So it looks like Ophichus=Vulkans. The similarity's been there for a while, but the backstory of giving up extreme emotions confirms it. Episode 24 gets 5 Yossha Lucky's, Episode 25 gets 4 Yossha Lucky's, 2 "Good Luck"'s, and 1 Japanese "Let's test your luck!", and I don't think there's anything thi...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 44 released

I kind of liked the episode, but as with the last one, some of the drama was lost because of how underused the female riders have been lately. Last episode's wrap-up of Taiga's character development was fantastic, but it was completely marred by Nico's not transforming for what feels like 10 episode...
