Ultraman Geed

The trailer is out for the latest Ultra Series installment, Geed! The plot revolves around the son of an evil Ultra (said son's human form is the youngest main Ultraman actor I know of), and the transformation gimmick looks effectively copied from last year's series. Sadly, some recent tropes of the...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.19 released

First of all, Lucky gets credit for not following his opening introduction with "the luckiest man in the galaxy." It's also good to see Hame use her ninja skills without needing to transform first. That said, this Maadakko is the third regeneration in a row with a love-driven personality, and Stinge...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 36 released

I really like the Hyper Muteki form; it looks like a Kamen Rider form, whereas all his other forms were rather atypical for the series (although the title of Campiest Ex-Aid Form would still go to its predecessor). I like the idea of Chronicle increasing its fanbase by convincing other players to tr...

Re: V-Cinema Ghost RE:BIRTH Kamen Rider Specter Released

I think I can say that this V-Cinema had no respect whatsoever for its original series. On the bright side, neither did we. The good: I know I'm in the minority, but there were some parts here I actually enjoyed. I’d predicted liking it bit more than the main show because of the lack of focus on Gho...

Re: Is the toku fandom bad?

People have told me stories about having hard times in their lives be eased a little bit thanks to the bit of escapism and happiness that comes from these shows. Life's messy and trying, so sometimes it's nice to be a part of a world where the heroes win at the end. I definitely agree. I think this...

Re: METROID PRIME 4 ANNOUNCED!

From the press notes, the game will apparently continue the original story while taking it in new directions (which is interesting, since I've heard the trilogy is pretty self-contained, though the color of the flame on the logo is strikingly reminiscent of a certain mutagen). I'm a little hesitant ...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.17 released

I almost want to give this episode a low rating because of the tonal inconsistency with the previous episode. I liked the villain, Moody Star was great, and for a MotW episode I actually liked this one, but I think we needed something a bit different before switching back to silly Sentai. It mention...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.16 released

Wow, this was quite an episode. I generally dislike episodes where a villain fakes a redemption scene, but this one felt a bit more tolerable than the others, perhaps because of the ending. Champ will almost definitely return in some form or another, but his death was still a twist I hadn't expected...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 34 released

All in all, another good episode, although I think it could have been somewhat stronger. A lot of the parts with Hiiro were fantastic, from his conversation with Emu to his "reunion" with Saki, though other parts like the collection of Gamedeus felt really rushed. It's interesting that we now have t...

Re: Kamen Rider Build 2017-18

Looks like Ex-Aid's summer movie is going to be a conclusion for the series , meaning a pretty early start for Build (which would be supported by such an early launch for Build's toys). That'd put Ex-Aid at around 42-43 episodes; wonder if the series hasn't been selling well or if it's more intentio...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.15 released

I'd initially thought Naaga was trying to gain the peoples' trust by blending in with them (which already doesn't make sense, since in a tribal village like this one, everyone would presumably know each other and would recognize that someone none of them had seen before was likely an outsider), but ...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 32 released

I think one of my biggest issues with Ex-Aid currently is its relative lack of consequence. Both Hiiro and Taiga thought that Saki was dead for five years, so that's easily long enough to make a lasting impression on them even if she is isn't really dead, but I'm still not sure about saying that all...

Re: Fusion Up! Ultra Fight Orb 06

Dang, we never saw what Orb's training looked like? Ah, well. In any case, this was a pretty decent episode. Feels like a filler--which can be expected from something so short--but the directing feels a lot more solid than it had earlier.
