Re: KR Build 25 released

While I agree it feels boring to have another proxy fight, I feel like it's a good writing strategy at this point. Consider this: 1. 2/3 of Japan has just been reunited. 2. (Night) Rogue has returned in a very Hopper Bros. fashion and it's pretty obvious he'll now be a permanent villain, whereas bef...

Re: Princess Jellyfish 02 released

There are so many aspects of this dorama that remind me of Personal Preference (a Korean drama about an architect who has to pretend he's gay to win an important contract). As someone else who's coming in fresh, I can't compare this to the manga or movie, but I really love it so far! I have to admit...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.42 released

i guessed last week that Outori was likely coming to and end of his mortality. he likely used up his life span reviving lucky back in the past era episodes. Considering the writer was involved in recent KR it makes sense to see at least one of the team sacrifice himself, and Otori's end was already...

Re: Are you a pirate?

The Kamen Rider V3 boxed set has been on my wishlist for several years now, and I feel they did a great job (a decent translation of the whole series plus all those yummy extras for only $150 USD!). The opposite can be said for DaiRanger. I watch very little anime these days, but ADV and other compa...

Re: Space Squad: Gavan VS DekaRanger released

I have to admit back when I started watching it years ago, I never expected Deka to become one of my all-time favourite sentai series. This duology really brought back fond memories. I'm also really glad the DekaRanger have continued to benefit from great writing. They just don't make toku like that...

Re: KR Build 02 released

This is definitely feeling like the beginning of Heisei Rider Phase 3. We have the outfit and detective stylings of W (Phase 2 opener), and mysterious ancient artifacts of Kuuga (Phase 1 opener). There are also a lot of connections to the original KR. The only thing conspicuously missing is the evid...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 45 released

I honestly felt it all came together about as perfectly as it can. The fact that this episode actually leads into the movie as unexpected. Also, I like how almost everything made sense. - Because Masamune had been vaccinated against the bugster virus, he was losing power. This is similar to vampire ...

Re: Chou Super Hero Taisen released

Amu was my least favourite of the core Jyuohgers, but they bumped off Sela yet again to use her as a (barely) plot device. Sela would've fit the plot so much better... Why do you think Sela would be better than Amu besides having a personal bias against Amu? My bias isn't against Amu, even though h...

Re: Chou Super Hero Taisen released

The Good: Naaga's subplot was great All the nostalgia Some excellent battles Great humour Good music all around Momotaro was perfect The Bad: So was Jyuuland destroyed or not? I expect plot holes from Heisei-era Toei, but this one was pretty friggin' huge... The whole first part reminded me of why I...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 41 released

Yeah probably the only Question everyone has after that Ep if Saki's SaveData is restored due to the "Rewind". Shecant come back because she "became" Graphite, just as Dan's mother became Poppy. Death by infection is diferent rom how Chronicle works. Masamune had enough data to create a mock-up of ...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 41 released

Saki is dead. She died before Chronicle and Graphite became whole as a result. The Saki that Masamune was tormenting Hiiro with was only a facsimile made from her last words. Thus, she could never come back no matter how things pan out. I love the fact that the three stooges spent so much time tryin...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 40 released

I happened to love this episode for the very reasons most hated it. I feel Masamune's reset was pretty well explained in the episode, and that his action will have consequences for him. Keep in mind, jamming the reet button/switch on older systems (such as the Super FamiCom and Sega Master System th...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 39 released

Speaking as a writer, I feel like they pretty much explained exactly how the Parado dilemma was to be solved. The thing is, Parado had to "die" in order for Emu to get the trophy, and for that, Parado had to believe he was really dying. Dan had to believe Parado was really dying. And most important,...

Re: Ratings Poll: Kamen Rider Amazons Season 2 and Series Discussion

Vorge: The original Amazon series was full of gore, with Amazon ripping off limbs and biting jugulars left and right. So the violence in Amazons is part of the homage it pays. But like Take said, it does tone down quite a bit as it progresses. For me, s1 was absolutely amazing, and s2 knocked it out...
