Re: Go-Onger 10 Years Grandprix released

They haven't really had mecha fights in these series, I assume because the costumes are long gone. The fact that they even bothered to have CGI engines was a miracle. I know that they are integral to the series, but Toei has been known to cheap out. Actually, speaking of CGI, the thing that surpris...

Re: Go-Onger 10 Years Grandprix released

I'm pretty sure I'm repeating myself on a semi-annual basis at this point, but that's okay. Either way I enjoy these 10 Years After movies. Even though they're clearly low-budget affairs, Toei has done a good job capturing the spirit of each series, and the Go-Onger special is no exception. It's not...

Oh, and why was SHT on break last week, anyhow? Was it golf again?
Relay-race marathon, close enough
Huh. I would not have expected that. Relay races aren't normally televised over here. (I guess Japan needs some practice for running from all of those kaiju attacks?)

Thanks Luna!

Re: Lupin VS Pat 39 Released!

This episode is kind of weird. It's great right up to the mecha fight, and then it gets kind of odd. On the plus side, the Zamigo/Lupin plot is finally moving forward. I can't be bothered to go checking individual episodes, but it feels like it's been a good 8-10 episodes since that was really advan...

Re: KR Zi-O 10 released

What does it mean for the state of the show when the best parts of this episode weren't the main character or the plot, but the returning characters from past series? There's just enough fan service to carry this episode, which is a damn good thing for the show since apparently the main cast cannot....

Re: Lupin VS Pat 38 Released!

I've been having this issue ever since episode 30. First and foremost, even in the released toy catalog before, Splash WAS supposed to be used by Pats because it even shows Ichigou using its Keisatsu Boost, formed PatKaiser Splash and the VS Vehicle turn downwards like all Trigger Machines. However...

Re: KR Zi-O 09 released

Yep, that was definitely a weird episode. The best episode of the series thus far, but also the oddest. It may very well be the best episode because I'm left here not knowing entirely what to make of it. The episode promised us Dan Kuroto, and we got Dan Kuroto in spades. For better or worse it's ea...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 38 Released!

I'm seconding the other comments here as well. It was a good episode, don't get me wrong, but for a big episode that's meant to move the series' main plot threads forward, the writing lets it down. Noel has not been further developed in a while now - at best he's been reset to status quo after this ...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 37 Released!

Not a top-tier episode, but an enjoyable episode once you get past the weirdness of the MOTW. However like some of the other bonding episodes, I can't help but feel this should have come a bit sooner. It seems awfully late in the series to only now be doing an episode like this.

Re: KR Zi-O 08 released

This episode was okay. It wasn't bad, but it also wasn't very good. By and large, Zi-O's biggest problem is that it keeps getting itself in trouble with time travel. It's not done very well, Even without the obvious paradoxes, it just does a bunch of strange stuff that complicates matters. The previ...

It'll be perfect, since LVSP is probably the anniversary of something! If not, TOei can just fudge the numbers into an anniversary event
I've got it: Goranger and JAKQ are once again kicked out of the Super Sentai club. Which would make it the 40th anniversary once again. :lol:

Re: Lupin VS Pat 36 Released!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Keiichiro as a character is a thousand times better when he's channeling BoukenRed than he is NinninRed. He plays the cool, stoic leader incredibly well, making it look natural. Conversely hot-headed Keiichiro is so overdone. Which is an odd inversion; norm...

I took a casual glance at the first couple results of google and... not really. Most of the comments were saying how nostalgic it was and how Geiz is cool. I dunno if I'm just looking in the wrong place or if they just have much lower expectations. Sometimes I feel like we're being too harsh on thi...

Re: KR Zi-O 06 released

Fair enough, there's a lot to bitch about, only made more infuriating by the fact that they know it doesn't make sense and don't care And the thing is that despite all of this, if it was a better show then it could easily get by on the Rule of Cool. If it's genuinely fun to watch then it doesn't ne...
