Re: Should Sentai or Rider go on a break?

I'm not sure if they need to take a break, but in my opinion they need to change the tone... [Kamen Rider needs] to make the themes a little more mature. Instead of having a show themed on fruit, ghosts or animals have the rider system be a government project with a driver that looks like it could ...

Re: Power Rangers/Kamen Rider vs. Iron Man

I think the Power Rangers concept was more or less old news by the time of Iron Man, and was essentially renowned as a kids series on a TV budget; additionally, I feel it helped Iron Man that the latter started out with more complex, realistic suitups in the first movie before springboarding into th...

Re: KR Build 45 released

Wow, it's been a while since I posted here. Not going to post an in-depth catchup when it'd be best saved for a series review, but here are some random notes from after I'd left off: Sento's got to be one of the worst pacifists ever Not sure comedifying Gentoku works as we've never seen that comedic...

Saban to Adapt Garo into New American Series

Well, this is interesting. "Earlier today, Haim Saban, the man behind Power Rangers and a few other one-time things that didn't work out, has officially announced that he will be taking footage from the Hyper Action Midnight Drama series, Garo , for an entirely new American production. As you probab...

Re: Kaitou Sentai LupinRanger VS Keisatsu Sentai PatRanger Promo (and Trailer!) Released

Can I just point out how extremely similar some of the aspects of this series is compared something I posted here? http://forums.tvnihon.com/viewtopic.php?f=148&t=21799 I've also noticed the similarity; the concept of the three police/vigilantes/villains forces seem all but impossible to mark off a...

Re: Japanese broadcaster apologizes after false North Korea missile alert

The fact that this comes mere days after Hawaii's similar warning has me raising an eyebrow. For all I know Hawaii and Japan both started working on such an alert after a certain authority figure started threatening NK and they both gave a false alarm upon completion (although it seems Japan's alert...

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...
