Re: KR Ex-Aid 20 released

Nico seems to be dead weight on the show now. I would've preferred to have Snipe Level 50 take more design inspiration from Macross carriers. Emu's condition has very interesting implications with respect to Mighty Brothers. It is easy to assume that Emu's attention is split between both bodies but ...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.02 released

I don't like the way Naaga speaks. Spock and Data didn't have emotions either, but at least they could speak fluently. Also they understood friendship on an intellectual level. The writing here makes Naaga seem like a dumb baby who's also slow on top of it. Some combination of the writing/acting is...

Re: Jyuohger 48 released

...reveal is too little, too late. This pretty much sums up my entire impression of this episode and the series as whole. Every idea they introduce has potential but it always ends up half baked. The battle with Genis lacked anyone emotional weight. It was obvious from the start that the Earth woul...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 09 released

It seems like Toei has been pushing for more time devoted to the action scenes to sell toys. Character development suffers from being squeezed into a much smaller time frame. It can be done but it requires a director that knows how to do condensed storytelling. Kiriya seems to be the most fully form...

Re: Jyuohger 40 released

Every time Cubal used that flash to knock people out, I'm reminded of the memory wiper from the Men In Black movies.

Naria's gun-chucks seem a bit more practical than sword-chucks.

Re: Jyuohger 34 released

At first I thought the Red memory clone was actually the mysterious Birdman. He can transform since he has a Mark of the King. That would've raised some interesting questions about his goals. Instead we got a dramatic setup for the big debut of the final mecha form in the next episode. I liked that ...

Re: Kaigan KR Ghost 44

The subplot about Bills working for Igor felt pointless. The relationship of trust built between Bills and the heroes was never fully explored for the audience to care.

The references to a Silicon Valley product reveal were not subtle.

Aria is so much wasted potential.

Re: Kaigan KR Ghost 36

Didn't we already see the form that Alain is training to master in a previous episode? The amount of buildup seems a bit ant-climatic.

It's most likely related to Igor's soul collecting mission. He treats them as a resource for some nefarious project.

Re: Jyuohger 18 released

The main problem is that they introduced TheWorld as a threat through pure brute force. Seeing him get outsmarted so easily severely undercuts all of the work that went to building him up to be a formidable enemy. I'm surprised Genis allowed Naria to administer a continue for Trumpass. You would thi...

Re: Kaigan KR Ghost 27

The unabashed Onari x Javert shipping was a neat surprise. It is certainly an interesting pairing since Onari hinted at not being so nice in the past.

Alain's father was boring. It is hard to care about such an aloof character .

Re: Jyuohger 09 released

In a show designed to sell toys, they really didn't do much to hype the introduction of Cube Mogura. The finisher looked so boring.

I'm starting to wonder why they don't stop Naria from casually walking up to the Player and reviving it with a coin.

Re: Jyuohger 05 released

Sigh. Apes don't have tails. The CG of the feathers flying as JyuohEagle got knocked around was a neat detail. I have mixed feelings about the episode overall. The pacing is good and interesting stuff happens but the messages about human and Jyuman becoming friends felt hollow. It doesn't help that ...

Re: Kaigan KR Ghost 19

I'm surprised to see the takoyaki woman again. So far, she seems to have more influence on the plot than either of Onari's assistants.

I feel conflicted with having Kanon as the key to reaching Alain's heart. On one hand, she is taking a more active role. On the other hand, her actions seem foolish.

Re: Jyuohger 02 released

Unleash the Beast... nipples. I can't help myself from thinking this even though the eyes on the suits are placed too high up for this joke to work. My own theory is that Yamato can use the cube because Jyumans were originally descended from humans and prolonged use of the power changes them into Jy...
