Re: Avengers Endgame

Gonna go with a spoiler-free version first off. First of all, Endgame feels like a thank you to the entire fans for sticking around with the MCU, so the more you've seen the more you'll appreciate (which isn't to say that is solely comprised of Marvel fanservice, although a couple of sequences may f...

Re: Ryusoulger 08 released

Overall, Melto's character seems to be treated a little better here than he was in prior episodes, but maybe that's because there was basically nothing defining him earlier. With that said, this feels like the second episode (after #3) where it feels like human life having value should be part of an...

Re: Ryusoulger 07 released

Huh. My main "I liked this" comment was on how fantastic the out-of-suit fight scenes were (particularly anything with Koh), so it makes sense that this was Sakamoto. I actually liked the directing here better than the average Sakamoto work (the transitions between calm and action don't seem particu...

Re: Ryusoulger 06 released

Okay, first of all I'm going to have to dump the science of how poison becomes contagious and just say it's a minosaur thing. There were a few good points in this episode; Koh letting himself get bitten was a neat scene, and I'm liking the increased weight of the masters (or one of them, at least), ...

Re: Ryusoulger 05 released

Oddly enough, this was my favorite episode of the series so far; this addressed a bunch of my concerns on previous episodes, from the masters' deaths not having any impact to worldbuilding that felt way too forced to the lack of chemistry between the characters (it's hard to pinpoint how, but just a...

Re: Ryusoulger 04 released

I kinda liked the episode from an episodic viewpoint, though I felt the story arc aspects ended up suffering. First off, perhaps my favorite part of the episode was how Koh was totally unfazed by Towa's acting like a jerk at the beginning; we rarely get characters who react to essentially bullies wi...

Re: Ryusoulger 03 released

Well, to start off, the episode didn't have any forced exposition, and the first few minutes of this one were far more enjoyable than the first bit of the last one. RyuusoulBlue having his own mini-arc was also a welcome shift of focus after a mostly Red-focused last two. With that said, the monster...

Re: Ryusoulger 02v4.1 Released!

Wow, this show is having some really bad pacing issues. Offing the masters in the first episode was one thing but killing the main cast by episode 2 was seriously really rushing things.

Re: Ryusoulger 02 released

I'm hoping future episodes will keep the shadow of the masters' deaths around. wELP that didn't happen Unironically, though, it feels a little concerning that they've shifted gears to a more episodic, comedic setting after a story-crowded and catastrophic first episode. There's still worldbuilding ...

Re: Ryusoulger 01 released

Well, this certainly felt like a mixed bag. First of all, I felt the concept was really on point. The swords-and-sworcery approach felt fresh, having a mentor team and a rookie team worked really well (though it looks like we aren't going to get more of that :|), the world has its own lore that it i...

Re: Should Sentai or Rider go on a break?

I'm not sure if they need to take a break, but in my opinion they need to change the tone... [Kamen Rider needs] to make the themes a little more mature. Instead of having a show themed on fruit, ghosts or animals have the rider system be a government project with a driver that looks like it could ...

Re: Power Rangers/Kamen Rider vs. Iron Man

I think the Power Rangers concept was more or less old news by the time of Iron Man, and was essentially renowned as a kids series on a TV budget; additionally, I feel it helped Iron Man that the latter started out with more complex, realistic suitups in the first movie before springboarding into th...

Well, this is interesting.
