Re: Mashin Sentai Kiramager Trailer Released!

Hmm, it's definitely an unusual premise. They've essentially combined a tech/machine season with magic and the infinity stones (I see what you're doing there, Toei; you can't deny it!). I'm always worried that seasons with so many themes will end up overstuffed, so we'll see what happens. I am calli...

Re: KR Zero-One 16 released

The changed the Bitrate for the TTFC a couple of episodes and ever since, the difference in quality between an HD TV source and the TTFC source is definitely noticeable. The moment I started watching Episode 14, I thought perhaps the torrents were handled incorrectly because it felt like an SD vers...

Is the problem only with Zero-One? Why isn't Ryusoulger affected?
Ryusoulger has also been affected. It's just easier to point out in Zero-One.

Re: KR Zero-One 16 released

Yeah, I have to second this request. As someone who first advocated for the TTFC rips, they've been great up until now. But whatever it is Toei has started doing, they're notably worse than they used to be.:( https://www.dropbox.com/s/kpusmc6xcl0sper/KRZeroOne16HDBroadcast.mp4?dl=0 How does this lo...

Yes and no. If I never see another shirt gag, it will be too soon.

Re: KR Zi-O Hyper Battle DVD released

It wasn't great. But it's a decent enough video. And certainly a lot more creative than the usual Televi-Kun HBV fare (Prime Rogue, may you always be forgotten). Feels a bit weird to portray tough guy Geiz as a scaredy cat. Also, as a PTSD soldier from the future, doesn't it seem kind of cruel to pu...

Re: KR Zero-One 16 released

Could you guys switch to 810p TVRips until TTFC changes their 2-pass encoding method that they’ve been doing since last 2/3 weeks? It's so bothering that the video are always in low quality even in HD, especially during the high speed motion fighting scene. Yeah, I have to second this request. As s...

Re: Ryusoul VS Lupin VS Pat Movie

Oh thank goodness, the VS movie is back in its usual slot. Combining it with the epilogue Returns movie was a terrible idea, both because the gap was too long and because it kind of hamstrung the writers. This is the last chance to finish the Lupin collection (something that should have been the epi...

Re: Ryusoulger 39 released

God I love Bamba. In a better world, Kishida Tatsuya would be a series lead. He totally has the chops for it. This is a very Bamba-focused episode, and it's made all the better for it. What's the best way to tick off an old-school, stoic Sentai member? Threaten Christmas. It definitely is a bit of a...

Re: Ryusoulger 38 released

I'm a bit late to the party here, but boy, was this an uneven episode. On the one hand, the action was absolutely fantastic. Real top-tier stuff. But then the plot underwriting all of this was miserable. Super Sentai exists to sell toys, but it's not supposed to be so dang obvious. As everyone else ...

Re: Japan's Population Is In Rapid Decline

And the birth rate drops once again. 864,000, down 5.9% from the year before. For a net loss in population of about 500K.

Re: P-Bandai DX Humagear Module unveiled. Preorders start 11/1, out 3/2020

I'm confused, is the top head strap not in the show? The top head strap is on the show props as well. However it's very thin and is generally hidden as to not be visible. From the viewer's perspective, the headset only has the rear strap (helping to sell the idea that it's integrated into the bot, ...

Re: KR Zero-One 14 released

I know some people are going to not like Fuwa doubling down on his hatred of humagears in this episode, but I thought it was done fine for the most part. I'll take that action. I like that he's still the skeptic/the guy with bot issues. But they made him a bit too one dimensional for this episode t...

Re: Ryusoulger 36 released

Holy cow. They finally remembered how to write a character-focus episode! I'm not going to spend a ton of time gushing over this episode. But it's really good. It's easily among the best in the series even though there's nothing really relevant to the series' overarching plot going on. It's that qui...
