Re: KR Zero-One 42 released

Text wall ahead! I was initially mixed on this episode, which is pretty par for the course when it comes to how I feel about Zero One as a series. Starting the episode off with another Aruto fake-out death/simulation had me really leery about the series relying too much on empty emotional drama, but...

Re: Kiramager Episode 05 released

So, I’ve waited a few episodes before putting my thoughts down just to make sure I wasn’t being blinded by that new series glow. (Pun partially intended.) I’m really enjoying this series. There’s a lot the series is doing right, chief among that being the casting. I don’t think I’ve liked a cast thi...

Re: Ryusoulger 39 released

As far as Ryusoulger (and, frankly, the past few sentai) is concerned, I've been following the rule of thumb that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. This was, by far, my favorite Ryusouger episode and possibly my favorite sentai episode of 2019. I loved how (almost) e...

Re: ZyuDen Sentai Kyouryuuger 33.5 & Brave Frontier 2 CM released!

Aw, no wonder he glomped King. These were such a treat to watch and put a huge smile on my face. Even without the nostalgia and jokes about how long it's been since they officially shot for something related to Kyouryuuger, there was a lot of humor. Nossan in particular was in top form, thanks to th...

Re: KyuuRanger year in review: Were we too harsh?

Kyuuranger lost me somewhere around the halfway point. Wait, no - my interest started waning when the Prince Lucky stuff that was telegraphed in, like, the second episode was confirmed, so I guess it took a little longer for me to reach the point of ambivalence. I really wanted to like this show, bu...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.29 released

Looks like my original guess was right - Orion is Lucky's ancestor. (With 300 some years separating the past and the present, I'm assuming there's a couple more generations in there.) My second theory, that Orion was Don Armage/took over as Don Armage, doesn't seem as likely anymore considering they...

Re: Chou Super Hero Taisen released

I completely forgot that this movie was a thing. I don't think I've ever blanked out the existence of a toku movie like that, especially given how long they spend promoting them these days. It was...okay? There was nothing that I found terribly offensive, although the Kyuuranger/Space Squad crossove...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.27 released

I was enjoying the episode’s premise, even the flashback so the Indabee could point out when he and Spada “met,” but then the episode turned into a clip show. Is this a new sentai tradition - mid-season recap episode? I can handle the New Year’s recap episode, because it usually helps to tie everyth...

Re: Space Squad Episode Zero: Girls in Trouble released

This was a good movie too, but parts of it felt like it indulged its snuff-film aspects a bit too much for me to be completely comfortable with. I really didn't need to see Jasmine and Umeko die so many times. Tammy is an awesome character. I don't remember a lot of details from the Metal Hero movie...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.25 released

That Shin-chan commercial was so creepy… Right, Kyuuranger. It was a decent episode. I assumed based on last week’s preview that the spirit obstacles would all be evil, but it was kind of nice that Commander and Kotarou got a chance to interact with (the real?) spirits of their loved ones one last t...

Re: Space Squad: Gavan VS DekaRanger released

This is probably going to be repetitive because I wrote it before I read Takenoko’s post, but man, they make it hard for me to like Geki. It’s funny - right before Umeko commented on their similarities, I was thinking about how Geki isn’t too different from Ban at the start of Dekaranger. The big di...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.24 released

It’s funny, but I think this episode was more redemptive for Lucky than Tsurugi. Rather than just have him stomping around and yelling about how he doesn’t work want to work with mean ol’ Tsurugi, they let Lucky have a confrontation about why he was frustrated with Tsurugi in a way that allowed both...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.22 released

I’ve been quiet the last few episodes because my opinion has been swinging back and forth and I’ve gotten fatigued of critiquing sentai. I didn’t have to worry this week because this was a really enjoyable episode from start to finish. I really liked Tsurugi this episode. His arrogance in his debut ...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.19 released

Absence did not make my heart grow fonder for Kyuuranger. My tolerance for its antics seems to have plummeted over the week off. Eris was majorly annoying. I know the whole "I find one member of the team cute - no, now it's the person I hated all episode" thing pops up fairly frequently in sentai, b...

Re: KR Amazons Season 02 Episode 10 released

It's like the ending lyrics say (didn't Phurricane point out how salient the lyrics were in last season's theme or this one?) I don't think I've posted in a S02 thread yet, but it sounds like something I probably said about the S01 theme. Or just about any toku lyrics. It's amazing how much a show'...
