Re: Ryusoulger 29 released

It'd be impressive if the twist has been it's multiple people, that's why it probably has just been Nada the whole time. So it's not really clear if SS Saikyou Battle is canon or not. if it is, then Nada can't have always been Gaisorg, because Rita was Gaisorg for all of 5 minutes. I'm also trying ...

Re: Ryusoulger 29 released

Hot damn! A really good Ryusoulger episode! This is the first top-to-bottom legitimately fantastic episode in a long time. Where has good Ryusoulger been hiding for the last two months? It's clear almost right from the start that this is a major episode arc, and that it's been allocated the producti...

Re: KR Zero-One 06 released

That was an enjoyable episode. Though like everyone else has already noted, it's not quite as strong as the first four. I'm glad the show is continuing to weave world building into things even when an episode is a bit more one-off. Specifically, we finally have a bit more information on what the dea...

Re: Blackfox: Age of Ninja

it looks like the movie is gonna premiere on cable channels in Japan first, but with them already marketing in English I wouldn't be surprised if there was a release stateside. They've gone straight to VOD , as it turns out. Amazon, iTunes, Google, the numerous Japanese equivalents, etc. In this ca...

Since big evil in the last couple of seasons has always been someone in the opening credits who doesn't do anything bad for a while, would the vice president's humageer be a candidate for big evil?
Well she is dressed in red and oddly present in most episodes despite not having much to do...

Re: Ryusoulger 28 released

You know, I laughed when I heard the phrase was "enter hole", but combining that with the penis thing really makes me wonder about the weird adultness of the subtext Depending on whether we count Canolo's strange as heck quest to get married, this is either the second or third time the show has bee...

Re: KR Zero-One 05 released

This episode dropped a lot of interesting plot/world lore right at the beginning, in an almost passive way at times. Though I'm generally a fan of show-not-tell, I also appreciate some things being subtle so that the episode doesn't have to grind to a halt to hand it to the viewer on a silver platte...

Re: Ryusoulger 28 released

If nothing else, this was definitely an interesting high-concept episode for Super Sentai. I'm not sure there's anything in recent years that's quite comparable to it; we've had several episodes where Hero X is at risk of dying if they aren't saved in the nick of time, but those episodes are normall...

Re: Ryusoulger 27 released

I am gobsmacked: in the final scene, the entrance to Gaizorg's hideout is a gay pride flag that's been cut into strips to make a curtain. I imagine it was an accident. Probably my least expected Sentai detail since the Thriller dance in Gekiranger. 1) That's not Gaizorg's hideout; that's the Druido...

Re: LupinRanger VS PatRanger VS KyuuRanger released

I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. At 54 minutes, it just doesn't feel like it has enough good character moments to justify having so many characters. An accurate take if there ever was one. This is a really lightweight movie. It kind of has to be, since it has to mesh together the gian...

Re: KR Zero-One 04 released

If I'm being honest, the show is being bogged down just a bit by the obligatory Q1 toy introductions. New forms are flying in fast, and not necessarily with a whole lot of logic behind why they're being used (e.g. Isamu not even trying his base Wolf form the second time). It's being handled a lot be...

Re: Ryusoulger 27 released

In episode 23 we were told that there were several of each Ryusoul, you could trade them, and they didn't last forever. Wouldn't that make it impossible to have a plot "we have to get this unique Ryusoul that's hidden away since forever in some obscure place"? Well in this episode they had to track...

Re: Ryusoulger 27 released

Finally! A giant robot fight! It was by no means worth the wait, but it was definitely a cut above the usual, which is the minimum the show needed to deliver after having them absent for so long. The boxing ring idea has been done before, but it's still used to good effect here. That was a nice, kin...

Re: KR Zero-One 03 released

Also, no one finds it suspicious that Aruto can think as fast as a computer and can connect to a satellite? Aruto wants to make people smile... like all the other Humagears! I still think it's a red herring, and that Aruto is human if only for toy reasons. But I have to be honest, it can go either ...

Re: KR Zero-One 03 released

Then why did they say they can restore from a backuppppppp. To highlight their different philosophies, I suppose? Yua sees them as tools, Aruto sees them as people, so he's not the kind of person to restore a backup and then go on pretending it's the same bot. (Though I suspect this isn't the last ...
