Re: Ultraman Z

People are really liking it so far. I'd been worried from the trailers, but I was surprised how much I enjoyed it; it pretty neatly breaks from the New Gen formula (no first-episode prologue/backstory dump) and the characters are far more likeable than the promos made them out to be. Wasn't sure abo...

Re: Is UltraSeven X still licensed?

Yeah; I think Toku got it and spread it from there to Amazon. Thinking we'll be seeing a Blu-ray within a few years, given how obscure Neo Ultra Q was and that it's the next release anyway?

Re: Poll: When Will Super Hero Time Return? (aka Revenge of the Hiatus Poll)

Apparently SHT (or at least Zero-One) will start filming again on the 28th: https://news.yahoo.co.jp/articles/f7028b0e6b4214f25fb3aaae0f0d19151dbb9fda So based on other members' predictions, probably early July or late June, depending on how much post-production the ep will need? Going with minimal ...

Re: Kuuga's coming to PlutoTV & TokuShoutSu on 5/1/20

I'm definitely getting mixed feelings on this. On the one hand, I can't help but appreciate the subs' styling (however minimal they may be) and the fact that it subbed the opening theme, which is extremely rare for the official subs I've seen (and both points make it almost feel like one of ours aft...

Re: How Reiwa's Anniversary Series should be handled in your opinion?

Huh; I'm feeling (almost?) sorry I skipped Zi-O, because my answer depends on where the state of KR continuity is now: If most of the series are still set in the same universe, I'd go for a Mebius-esque mixed option: have a largely standalone series with other riders' existence mentioned (most of th...

Re: Big Toku Manga thread

Apparently Ultraman ran an Ultraman Story 0 manga that expanded vastly on the Showa lore, but most of it's non-canon now. Also ran across a weird and definitely non-canon Battle of the Ultra Bros manga, which Viz released officially a while back but are out of print now (some pretty good scans are o...

Re: Ultraman Z

It seems a little weird to have such a New Generation-influenced show right after marketing Taiga as the end of that series, but it could be interesting. I'm not as hyped for it as I could be, but I wasn't interested in Taiga either at first and that became one of my favorite New Gen shows. Copy-pas...

Eh, I'm of two minds on this one. There've certainly been worse CEOs, but I don't know either of them.

Re: Ultraman Geed the Movie released!

Caught up with the licensed version on Blu-ray; it wasn't that bad when viewed as an episodic special, though it had a couple of issues as a movie for me. First off, the movie's acknowledgements of past Ultraman lore is a treat for longer fans, from a couple of references to the Silver Cross Corps t...

Re: Ryusoulger 38 released

The overall plot wasn't bad, but... I'm not sure what the point of a team powerup is if it's not for a team to use. I still believe having as blank a slate as Koh is miles better than having an actively annoying character be the main focus (considering Lucky and what I've heard of Takaharu), but Koh...

Re: KR Zero-One 14 released

A lot of the episode was pretty enjoyable. I know the company image subplot has been subject to criticism, though I personally like it--it adds a bit of realism in acknowledging that a comedian with no management experience wouldn't be too great a CEO. The acting between the episode's two Humagears ...

Re: Ryusoulger 37 released

I thought this was pretty good; the villains seem to be getting way more interesting (more so than the heroes by this point), and some of the action sequences were pretty spectacular as well. The Tyramigo subplot didn't particularly grab me, but beyond that I thought it was actually pretty good (plu...

Re: Ryusoulger 35 released

I'm going to agree with ViRGE that the trials were really up and down. Melto's and Asuna's didn't seem to have anything to do with their characters, whereas Canalo's and Koh's seemed to fit them pretty well (a little disappointed that Koh's ended in a strategic fight rather than a self-realization/a...

Also, apparently their Star Wars 4K scans/upscales include one ...

Re: KR Zero-One 11 released

Somehow Oowada Shinya's statement on acting oddly reminds me of Martin Scorsese's recent comments on cinema being about conveying experiences to other humans? Probably looking into it a bit too hard. Still, Oowada did strike me as quite realistic character, though I only learned afterward that he's ...
