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...

Re: Disney+?

My family decided to grab it; we've been particularly admiring its organization methods that make finding any specific item particularly easy (and its classic cartoon array is a nice bit to appreciate alongside its larger blockbusters). 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 ...

Re: Ryusoulger 34 released

Yeah, I believe Asuna asked about or overheard him, but all the two would say was "You remember him looking really wise? Just keep thinking of him that way."

Re: Ryusoulger 34 released

It's nice that they're giving Koh flaws, but I really wish they were consistent. He's had anger issues show up for what feels like a good 5 episodes (and are now adding pride), but it seems like he only has problems when they relate directly to the story. (Also, wow; Koh's friends try to cheer him u...

Re: Ryusoulger 33 released

I'm in agreement with BreadToku and the others--it does feel like a really well done episode, but the entire series has been a bit of a messs. Nada's (temporary, depending on what his video implied?) death scene worked for me, but why did we get to know him for only an episode and a half as a good g...

Re: KR Zero-One 10 released

Wow; I'd listed wanting to see more of the public's reactions to Hiden's decisions in the series discussion poll and two days later (or fiveish days beforehand) it's brought up directly. This show may not always do everything perfectly the first try, but it sure knows how to fix itself. Having a sma...

Re: Zero-One series discussion and poll

I don't think I've seen a mainstream Toku series since before the "Neo-Heisei" era that's had as consistently enjoyable a start as this one has (possibly excepting Gaim?). The suits' animal theme hardly feels forced at all, as technology often replicates nature IRL, and the humor feels neither overd...

Re: Games that you've been playing recently

Just completed the Metroid Prime Trilogy (admittedly I'm around a decade late, but it was pretty fun nonetheless). Now I'm properly hyped for the fourth installment.

Re: Ryusoulger 32 released

I felt this was a pretty good episode and not a bad resolution to the Gaisorg plot overall (with the exception of the minosaur draining hatred essentially by coincidence), but why didn't they wait another 10 episodes? I thought Ghost really suffered after dumping their most interesting villain, so t...

Re: Ryusoulger 31 released

Some of this felt oddly episodic for something directly after such a story-driven prior episode (which I admit is rather odd for me to say, as others had referenced the same issue last time). A bunch of the episode was pretty fun--Koh using his shirt as a makeshift weapon was creative, the water tri...
