Re: KR Zero-One 19 released

On the surface, I would agree that this arc is repetitive and thus a little boring, but there are a LOT of details everyone's missing that keep it somewhat interesting. 1. Why are all of the champions for the ZAIA Specs assholes? If anyone remembers the Neo Cybermen from Doctor Who (10th Doctor era)...

Re: KR Zero-One 15 released

Maybe the third antagonist would be the Ark itself... It would be reminiscent of GoBuster, with two of the three main villains falling only to have the third take over and reanimate the second. I could see ZAIA having its fun only for the Ark to turn on Gai and resurrect MJN but with their memories ...

Re: KR Zero-One 15 released

This was one of those episodes where cause and effect had a lot of symbology that was lost in translation. Izu's comprehension of family didn't translate well when she came up to Jin and Horobi. The intent was obviously to show her satisfaction at her brother's death being avenged. She wanted to see...

Re: KR Zero-One 09 released

There was one subtle implication I don't think anyone else caught. Hiden may not be the only Humagear manufacturers. In the scene where they were discussing whether or not to shut the Medigears down, the VP's toadie (not Siesta, the human male) said something about them having to leave the Humagear...

Re: KR Zero-One 08 released

If it wasn't for the fact that this is coming from Japan which has a much different view on public bigotry, I'd say the Big Three are not only showing the three outlooks on AI, but also a sort of representation of the three faces of Western cultural crisis. You have Aruto who's like my generation an...

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 ...
