Eh, you should probably keep doing it. Without 2.5 we would have never known just how little the writers cared about plot holes and paradoxes.

At this point it's like looking at a train wreck: you can't turn away.

Re: Lupin VS Pat 31 Released!

Doesn't it feel like something got left on the cutting room floor that was meant to explain either Tsukasa or Noel's motivations in this episode? Possibly. As it stands the episode does feel whole. It just also feels stupid. So if you told me that this episode is exactly what was planned and that t...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 31 Released!

Going along with what Takenoko has already said, this episode really was all over the place. The A-plot falls flat on its face (more in a second), and in the meantime we have those cringe-worthy skits that add nothing to the story. But then we shift to the final act of the episode where it focuses o...

Re: KR Zi-O 02 released

What the eff did I just watch? No, seriously; what on earth just happened? :| As a rule of thumb I don't care for time travel plots in toku shows. Time travel is hard to write and even harder to write well. Meanwhile Toei's toku shows have to balance all of this with serialization, action, and toy s...

Re: Completed?

Gotcha. Thanks for the clarification, Takenoko.

And DTV is Direct To Video.

Re: KR Zi-O 01 released

I feel like we need a music major here to actually break down what we're hearing. At least for me, I'm way out of my element Reporting for duty! It is Arabic music, specifically Egyptian. I definitely hear a qanun the most. A qanum would be similar to a Japanese koto, as both are box zither instrum...

Wasn't Misora in the SHT end bumper for Build?
She is with the cast. However the scene before that has all of the transformed heroes. Which by virtue of being transformed heroes, has always excluded the girls.

Completed?

This shouldn't qualify for completed, should it? There's still the summer Build movie and next spring's DTV movie.

Re: Lupin VS Pat 30 Released!

This episode is a bit of a mixed bag for me. I rather like that it was a deep Kari episode and that he feels like crap for not being as good a person as Keiichirou. However I feel like Keiichirou's characterization is flatter than a pancake. He's a damn good hero, and yet the writers never seem to b...

Re: KR Zi-O 01 released

I watched the music video for this and my first reaction to it was "WTF did I just see" Wait, was that the official music video for the song? They aren't staging a proper video with the band this year? :shock: I figured it was some kind of promo thing... Maybe we should start a poll for guessing wh...

Re: KR Zi-O 01 released

All in all, the intro music is nice. However the hindu music feels out of place for a battle soundtrack. Doesn't feel 'epic' as was intended. Doesn't blend well with the fight scene. I feel sad though. This is the year 2018 and going forwards, the same video will be archived mostly for future viewe...

Re: KR Zi-O 01 released

As several people have already noted, this episode moved incredibly quickly. And I don't envy Toei or the Zio staff here, as there is a ton of stuff they have to get done and in short order. Just establishing the fictional universe is a tall order, never mind all the toys they have to promote on top...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 29 Released!

-2 points for being a clip show. +1 point for at least making it a dramatic episode rather than a bunch of bad comedy +1 point for the great untransformed fighting scenes we got in this episode. Even if they were short, they were more (& more involved) than at least 4 regular episodes put together. ...

Re: Poll: What's your opinion of Kamen Rider Build?

3/5 I liked that this series was fairly serious and wasn't bogged down by unimportant comedy plots that really didn't have anything to do with the main story. However it just never got in gear; the lack of unique villains to fight really dragged the series down, both in terms of drama and in being a...
