Re: Ryusoulger 21 released

This was the first time in a while that I've felt like Ryuusoulger could still end up as a pretty good show. Something in the execution's still lacking for me, though--Master Pink acts seems more like a slightly older RyuusoulPink than a wise character for the majority of the episode, adding onto he...

Re: Ryusoulger 20 released

That was a pretty solid episode, even if there were a couple of issues keeping it from greatness. I think these issues tend more towards the directing side rather than the scripting one, since it seemed to take the break-the-character-to-find-their-core approach with the challenge to Towa not sheddi...

Re: Ryusoulger 19 released

Have to say, Ui’s father feels like an unsung charm of the series. It feels like he should be annoying, but I really don’t find him that bad. This was a very filler-y episode, but it does play with some interesting (and kinda creepy) ideas. Kind of a shame that an episode with Melto as the main huma...

Re: Shin Ultraman. 2021. Higuchi will direct, Anno will produce/write

Huh. Between sharing a name, writer, director and co-production company with Shin Gojira, it does look a bit like a cash grab; with that said, I'm willing to hope it'll be a good cash grab. The concept kinda reminds me of the context-less 2015 trailer combined with 2004's ULTRAMAN: The Next, in term...

Re: Ryusoulger 18 released

It seems odd saying this, but this feels like the most Eastern philosophy and/or religion-based episode I've seen by far, going far beyond the concept of objects having feelings and deserving respect (which has already been expressed once or twice earlier in the show) and straight into Buddhist alle...

Re: KR Zero-One announcement trailer

Zero-One's suit design has definitely grown on me, though admittedly I thought it was pretty ugly when I saw the first leak (then again, if I can get used to Ex-Aid's design it makes sense that I can get used to this). Interesting choice that none of the suits seem to have a mouth, though. It certai...

Re: Which resolution do you usually download TV-Nihon videos at?

It can depend on my mood, but I'll generally download something at 720p if I'm hyped for it or plan to share it with others (otherwise I'll go with SD, especially if I'd like to watch sooner rather than later). I usually watch on my laptop, which only has a height of 768, so even aside from file siz...

Re: Ryusoulger 17 released

Huh; neither Bamba nor Towa have their character arcs undone, but it's kinda weird that they're still walking around on their own. I'm also not sure if my attempted predictions of two separate twists that never materialized (namely, Mosa Rex only pretending to be pretending and the kid being the rea...

Re: Ryusoulger 16 released

Well, the awkward fun-to-fight transition was enough to tip me off that it was probably a Sakamoto episode, but as another member mentioned earlier, it really is hard to be mad at almost anything when the action and choreography are as good as they are. Not gonna lie, though, my favorite decision ma...

Re: Ryusoulger 15 released

The action was definitely a step up from standard Sentai; I've got to hand it to Sakamoto on that point. I also tend to like (reasonably limited) exposition dumps, so the extra worldbuilding was nice; additionally, the new Druidon continues to feel more intriguing than the last one (even if he's pro...

Re: Ali Express Selling TV-Nihon Splashes as Bedsheets

From what I can tell, AliExpress is somewhat notorious for pirating stuff (my BIONICLE social circle has long noted its inferior carbon copies and somewhat weird remixes), so I can't say I'm extremely surprised.

Re: Be the (Zero) One!: Build Mark II

Actually, speaking of references to previous riders, giving two main riders in a row hyphenated words that start with Z and O feels a little weird (Zero-One just after Zi-O?). Admittedly the kana themselves aren't as related as the English letters, but it still feels like an odd choice.

Yeah; it looks like they're just re-using the old silhouette for now (Zi-O's image vs. Zero-One's image)

Re: Ryusoulger 10 released

This episode was more satisfying than I was expecting. I'm glad the could've-been kinda-romance subplot I was fearing went nowhere, and Asuna's more comedic angle didn't seem to interfere with the story's (and, in fact, her own) more serious moments. Unlike the last episode, which seemed to want to ...
