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...

Cosmos got licensed, so we switched to Dyna.

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...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 42 released

I thought Gamedeus was pretty underused; he seemed to be more of a plot point than an antagonist. Perhaps the story got a bit rushed because of the shortened episode count. I'm not sure what's going on with some of the protagonists recently. First Emu brutally traumatizes and almost kills Parado to ...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.23 released

I'm a bit confused how Don Armage came back, but for the most part, I liked the episode. It was good to see Lucky and Tsurugi clash ethically instead of just thinking each other's annoying, but I felt like the conflict was resolved a little too quickly. One "Yossha Lucky!" this time. Episode 22 Luck...

Re: Jark Matter Language

I think I found a new letter (in episode 20, at around 11:49). It seems to be an X in "nexus," but I have no idea why that'd be on a mob sign: http://imgur.com/MVgXPyE.png http://imgur.com/U0LnU64.png Additionally, I've found some punctuation! The easiest one to identify is an exclamation point, whi...

Re: Ultraman Orb - The Origin Saga 01 released!

I have to say, what a breath of fresh air this was from the last few (and current) Ultra Series! No heavy merchandising gimmick, no 30-second rises, just straight-up storytelling and action. The budget is definitely lower than it was for the main series (I'm surprised they didn't pay much attention ...
