Re: Kiramager Episode 39 released

Of the many awesome things about Kiramager, Malibu Shiina unfortunately isn't one of them. Which means that her focus episodes have become a self-fulfilling prophecy of sorts, where they aren't very good because she's not very interesting. Thankfully, this is also a Tametomo focus episode, and he's ...

Re: Kiramager VS Patran 3, Kegareshia, and Kaze no Shizuka

I'm embarrassed to admit that I can't tell who most of those people are just by looking at them. KirameiGreen was the easiest to pick out, and even then that's based more on her voice.

Re: Kiramager Episode 38 released

You're almost making me wish the yaoi paddles would get unbanned Now it all makes sense: you are the infamous girl who was whacking people and sneaking off into the crowd afterwards! :shock: Those behind the scene pictures are hilarious Was there more than just the single picture posted to the fron...

Re: Zenkaiger Promo released

I'm reading through these responses and I feel like that weird kid in the corner that is just sitting by himself saying "But I think it looks nifty." under his breath. If you like what you're seeing, more power to you and I hope you enjoy the series.:) A number of us are dismayed, but we ...

Re: Kiramager Episode 38 released

This episode strikes me as trying to be deeper than it actually is. The whole "it was all a hallucination" aside, nothing about this episode really grows any characters. Takamichi's experience was set in the past, and it doesn't seem all that important to his character. Nor is it going to ...

Re: Zenkaiger Promo released

Technically they do transform. It's just that their civilian forms and ranger forms are so similar. Hence the "face hero" qualification. I'm purposely excluding suited characters, because they're not actual people.:( I read in one of my tokusatsu groups that the reason for this shift is b...

That's my big question. I'm really not feeling this show. The lack of transforming face heroes takes a lot of the fun out of it. :(

Re: Kiramager Episode 37 released

Yeah, I don't think Sena was killing herself either because kid's show. But there's no doubt in my mind that they pulled from suicide imagery which is why I'm having a strong reaction to it. I don't know if I think it's gross or a tactful way of touching on subjects of depression in a kid's show Th...

Re: Kiramager Episode 37 released

I gotta disagree, Sena said before that her backup plan was to be a waitress on Shounan beach if the track thing didn't work out. Narratively speaking, it makes more sense she'd pack up her bags and do that, not off herself. But she's not Sena, she's the worst part of Sena. She knew she wasn't want...

Re: Kiramager Episode 37 released

Hmm. That was an okay episode. But I have to admit I found it unfulfilling in the end. The big issue, as a couple other people have already noted, is that it feels like two A-plots smashed together. Sena being split up or Emperor Yodom showing his ugly face would under normal circumstances be their ...

Re: Kiramager Episode 36 released

Finally, was the rap battle MC anyone famous? That's one of those character placements where Toei could have gone either way, as they've snuck famous people in spots like that before. I think he is. https://www.toei.co.jp/tv/kiramager/story/1224262_3066.html According to Toei tv's site, the rap bat...

Re: Kiramager Episode 36 released

Not being a native Japanese speaker does take some of the joy out of a rap-themed episode. But that makes the translation job all the more important; kudos to xiiliea on coming up with lines that work in English! :D On the whole, this is a pretty light episode. No MOTW, no big fights, and a good chu...

Re: Kiramager Episode 35 released

Oh, I didn't even notice that. And the outfit is really unique and peculiar. Luna, do you know??? It's an older style but it's a fairly stereotypical caddie outfit. https://image.alba.co.jp/common/images/common/img/cont/l/640x480/flexible/2018082215194437836.jpg And the vast majority of caddies are...
