Re: KR Zi-O 06 released

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...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 35 Released!

Still, Takenoko is right in that it sort of came out of nowhere - for that matter, so does the fact that the gun turns into a giant robot Megatron is insulted! https://media.giphy.com/media/P9U0I46DTgDAs/giphy.gif Megatron is a giant robot that turns into a small gun. That's completely different an...

Re: KR Zi-O 06 released

This episode at least gets credit for effort. The idea of tying together two Another Riders like that was an interesting one. However despite so little of value happening, the episode still felt overstuffed as a result of being about two different shows. The writers have been gorging themselves on t...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 35 Released!

As a character focused episode it was decent enough. It's fun to see the Lupins get frustrated at their quest, and for Kogure's actor to actually get to play a wider range since he normally plays a very narrow character. However I also concur that we already know that Jeeves isn't on the level. So t...

Re: Just call the show LupinRanger

Generally speaking, I agree with your sentiments. The show has done a pretty good job fleshing out the Lupins, but it hasn't done so for the Pats. And that's unfortunate since they're the other 3/7ths of the regular face characters in the show. So in a lot of ways it's being carried by a 4-man band....

Re: KR Zi-O 05 released

This was not as scatterbrained as the first 4 episodes. It's still not very good though. Even when the show is not tripping over itself, it's still struggling to justify why anyone should be invested in the story. This episode was directed by Sakamoto, which explains why the fight choreography was b...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 34 Released!

I don't know. This was an okay episode. But that it was essentially written around a toy gun is a bit off-putting. I mean I get that that's what Sentai is at the end of the day - a 30 minute toy commercial - but it's usually not so obvious. Especially not 34 episodes in. And as Takenoko notes, other...

Have you not seen the SIC toy line of Kamen RIder toys? Imagine Kamen Riders, but with monstrous features.
Honestly I've never paid attention to Rider toys. I know they do belts and basic action figures, and that's about as much as I know.

Re: KyuuRanger VS Space Squad released

I have to say that overall I'm ever so slightly disappointed in the movie. Really that's my own fault, but it looked so promising in the trailers. And the first Space Squad movie was pretty good, too, so I was hoping they could keep up that energy. Overall I think Takenoko has hit the high points. I...

Ugg, kids. And double ugg, adults acting stupid so that the kids can win. Who wants to bet that Noel's secret is something dumb or doesn't pay off till the LVSP returns movie, like with Jyuohger? I'm certainly not going to bet against that... If watch week-to-week, this show is entertaining because ...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 32 Released!

Finally catching up here... So this episode is in one sense a lot of progress. 32 episodes in and the characters are finally , at some level, articulating what the ideological conflict is between the Pats and the Lupins. We've known for a long time that the hazard the Pats pose to the Lupins is that...

Re: KR Zi-O 04 released

And not to give up on the series so soon, but if it does want to turn things around in a dramatic fashion then that's its only real hope. Either this is a terrible consequence of having to front-load the toys, or it's inherently this scatterbrained.
