Re: KR Zero-One 32 released

I really like where this arc is going. An interesting observation I've made (and not sure if it's just a coincidence) is that the three arcs so far have all been based loosely on one of the three main riders and specifically their initially expressed opinion of Humagears: For Aruto, Humagears were g...

Re: Rio Komiya/Juru tests positive for COVID-19

Wishing him the speediest of recoveries. It's good that they always shoot about 2 months in advance (they are at ~ep 12 now), it gives them enough room to handle such unexpected and unfortunate events. My guess is that they will probably still do some shooting with scenes that don't involve Jyuuru. ...

Re: What are your Corona fears, gripes, and needs for reassurance?

Absolute horseshit. The theories that the virus originated outside of China (specifically in the US) is narrative pushed by the CCP in order to shift the blame. Every other genetic and epidemiological study backs the theory that Wuhan was the origin. If there were studies that were published that s...

Re: What are your Corona fears, gripes, and needs for reassurance?

They are usually about 2 months ahead with the filming, so for the time being we should be ok with getting new eps.

Re: What are your Corona fears, gripes, and needs for reassurance?

We have been in complete lockdown (everything is closed apart from supermarkets) for a few days now and thankfully measures were taken early enough so the situation isn't out of control. There are some cases but some people are hopeful that by the beginning of April the number of new cases per day w...

Re: KR Zero-One 26 released

The bad writing seems to be getting worse. I found the firefighter chief's actions during the crisis incredibly reckless. There were multiple people in the building that needed to be rescued. Stopping to administer CPR while in a burning building is not standard procedure. You put everyone at great...

Re: Kiramaaa? Kirameh? Kirameki! Poll

Please note that xiiliea and I will be translating the series and have mostly settled on just using Kirama- for everything since it's derived from "mage" My argument against this is that it sounds weird for it to be KiramaRed when it's not a "mah" sound, it's a "mei" sound. It's find for "mage" in ...

Re: Kishiryuu Sentai Ryusoulger 42 Released

3) If there's really nothing dinosaur-y going on then why the hell weren't they dragon knights? That would've been so much cooler. I suspect they turned this into a dinosaur Sendai (only 6 years after Kyouryuuger, many aspects are almost exact copies from that show) at the last minute, in order to ...

Re: Ryusoulger 38 released

I found myself asking the same as the Minusaur... Whyyyyyy? What is the purpose of the power-up when Max exists? Why do only Red and Gold get teleported to the temple? Why do only these two get the power-up? Why are trials mentioned when they supposedly cleared their trials just two episodes ago? Wh...

Re: KR Zero-One 15 released

This was excellent. The information we got about the Hiden family, what this means for Aruto and Izu (and Subaru) and the parallel with Horobi and Jin were fantastic. This only serves to make the losses of Izu and Horobi later on more dramatic. Izu and probably Subaru have reached singularity, and J...

Re: KR Zero-One 14 released

I feel like if they make him a cyborg, it rips off I, Robot a little too much. I think it's kind of refreshing that he just hates Humagears a tonne. It's not like he's been completely vindicated at all, but was at least right that it could happen again. I also really like seeing him brute force his...

Re: KR Zero-One 14 released

I'm torn on Fuwa. I like the idea of him being a Humagear, but at the same time they operated on him in episode 9. If he was a Humagear, he wouldn't need surgery right? I wouldn't mind a retcon since Fuwa being a Humagear is more interesting at the moment than Fuwa just hating Humagears. That said,...

Re: Ryusoulger 36 released

Oh right. The "invincible spear" is a reference to the Japanese word Mujun/Contradiction (矛盾). The kanji is made of a spear and a shield, with the story being there was a spear that could pierce anything and a shield that could block anything, and how it doesn't make any sense. Nice! Don't think I ...

Re: Ryusoulger 36 released

It is stunning how much difference it makes when 1) focus is truly on a non-red character 2) you see Asuna use a power-up even if it's just during training 3) the enemy with the best personality is directly involved in the fight 4) you can relate to the character of the day. Yes Canalo, doing the ca...
