Re: KR Build 40 released

Well that was a disappointing episode. It wasn't terrible, but for an episode that introduces the main character's ultimate form, it fell well short of where it needed to be. This episode felt like is was written by two people, neither of whom really seemed to know what was going on. The whole thing...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 19 Released!

Well that was an enjoyable character episode. It didn't take any great risks, but I enjoy episodes where they let the normally comic relief Sakuya take a serious role. He obviously was never in true jeopardy in that things need to be back to status quo by the end, but it was nice to see his resolve....

Re: Another Ending Part III: Kamen Rider Genm VS Kamen Rider Lazer released

Well that was fun. And a good capstone to this series. In fact it's a shame that Build is so shallow (and generally mediocre), as it means Toei won't be able to do anything on this level after that series ends. Overall this movie moved a bit slower than I would have liked, but it delivered on the hi...

Re: Another Ending Part II: Kamen Rider Paradox with Poppy released

Wow, that really was a step up from the previous movie. Pretty much everything about this was spot-on Ex-Aid at its peak. Which isn't just a function of the characters, but the strength of the plot as well. Overall, I think this movie benefited from having much better loose threads to work with. Nam...

Re: Another Ending Part I: Kamen Rider Brave & Kamen Rider Snipe released

I'm very curious whether that was a literal translation, or if you guys took liberties with that. Because I don't know whether to credit you or Toei for making me crack up at 4 in the morning. :lol: Believe it or not, that's a literal translation. Whelp. They went there. It took a whole season, but...

Re: Another Ending Part I: Kamen Rider Brave & Kamen Rider Snipe released

Alright, I finally got a chance to sit down and watch this one. It was a decent enough movie, but Takenoko isn't wrong. The handling of Nico in particular was really weird; either this is setting up drama to bring her back in a later movie, or perhaps someone at Toei decided to pull a 180 after real...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 18 Released!

Plus I guess this means that putting a new collection piece in a busted safe allows a fallen Ganglar to be revived? Not necessarily. You can see in the other episodes that Nari- I mean Gauche can just revive them without having to put another piece inside the safe Ah. Right. That's a good point. Th...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 18 Released!

Not a whole lot to add here. It was a so-so episode all around. I do appreciate them trying to give Good Striker some more characterization, but it didn't really work. At the end of the day he's still the crutch being used by the writers to justify both teams having a single robo. I was also surpris...

Re: Stuntman Daichi Nobe (Suit actor for Engine Bros) passed away due to falling accident. He was 21

Man, that's always heartbreaking news. We have a tendency to overlook the stunt fighting of toku since it's day in and day out. But it's what gives the genre its charm. It's also what makes it so risky. These people go to amazing lengths and significant risk so that we can bitch about Evolt every we...

He hasn't been developed/important enough to make his face heel turn all that interesting. He's always been an antagonist. An...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 17 Released!

That was an okay episode. I can understand why the writers went for the outcome they did, but on the whole it was still missing a bit of something to make it to 5 territory. A bit too saccharine for its own good, perhaps. Also, good gravy did they blast through that robo fight. That was almost 100% ...

Re: KR Build 38 released

I enjoyed that episode. It wasn't up to a 5 (and I'll get to why in a sec), but overall it was a good episode. And you can tell it was important, because there was no OP! Despite the fact that he only had a handful of lines, all the best scenes revolved around Gentoku. He was the only Rider smart en...

Re: Lupin VS Pat 16 Released!

Based on the preview for this episode, I really didn't have high hopes for this one. Body swap episodes are a Sentai staple, and they have a tendency to be mediocre. Instead we get a reasonably funny plot about having to hide the current state of affairs from what's essentially the other half of the...
