Re: Zero -Dragon Blood- 11 released

The cannon brushes in the flashback are both hysterical and awesome.

Aw, they made the dragon grow up. I liked the baby dragon better. Very predictable that it chomped on Edel. It almost seemed gentler with how it incapacitated Rei and Rekka - Alice's influence?

Re: KyuuRanger Space.06 released

I thought I was really disappointed in the episode, but then I read Takenoko’s reaction and realized I could have been much harsher. The bottom line is that the fight over who would be leader was completely manufactured. It kinda fits with Hame’s immature personality and it did seem like she was cal...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.03 released

I may have enjoyed the Henshin Lesson more than the episode. Which isn’t to say I hated the episode. I suppose I’m ambivalent. This episode really made me feel bad for Raptor. She’s surrounded by quite the collection of idiots, isn’t she? I'm not really feeling the Commander, but I couldn’t help but...

Re: Zero -Dragon Blood- 08 released

One aspect where Garo has disappointed me in recent series is the monster design. A lot of them are either forgettable or a naked woman fused with an object. I was kinda iffy about the stretchy torso thing at first, but man was that design cool once it unleashed its full Horror form. It was a pretty...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.02 released

Kicking the episode off with some more details about the Empire/Armada was a good choice. It looks like they'll probably face off against the planetary governors for a while until they improve their teamwork and/or increase their powers enough to take on the Chief Retainers. I like that the KyuuRang...

Re: Zero -Dragon Blood- 07 released

Oh, ouch. In hindsight, I guess all the flags were there that Kagome wasn't going to survive the episode, but it still hurt as they all gathered around her body. I half-wondered if the fairy was going to do something to bring her back to life, but I guess that glow was just a farewell blessing. I al...

Re: KyuuRanger Space.01 released

Solid, fun introductory episode. Visually, this was such a treat. The effects are awesome. I hope they didn’t blow the budget on the first episode, because everything from the swirling galaxy effect when they pop out of the cockpits, the hyperspace-esque effect in the transformation, to all the spar...

Re: Jyuohger 46 released

I wouldn't say I enjoyed the Yamato parts, but I agreed with Yamato more often than not. Excuse or not, fighting Azauld was more important than checking on the dad that he didn’t even have a good relationship with. It was bizarre than Amu insisted he go somewhere else when they got curbstomped by Az...

Re: Jyuohger 44 released

I can’t believe they actually changed the credits to say Mario was ZyuohHuman. I got my hopes up with the opening sequence that we might have finally turned the corner on mopey Misao. Not quite. I thought it was a decent clip show. The Azauld and Bado stuff was relatively new material, and by puttin...

Re: Zero -Dragon Blood- 01 released

I enjoyed it. The last Zero miniseries left a lot to be desired, but this was a fun romp in the Garo-verse. Didn’t the last Zero series have him battle a hallway of Horrors? That concept felt very familiar. I guess there's only so many things before you start repeating concepts. On the other hand, I...

Re: Jyuohger the movie released

I think there was less to the story in this movie than usual, which is saying something. Yamato got beat up quite a lot. The third (or was it fourth?) time it happened, I got irritated Misao didn’t jump in to help. I’m even more irritated after reading your post Takenoko, because you’re right - they...

Re: Jyuohger 39 released

This episode fell kinda flat for me. Nothing was terrible, but it wasn’t really good either. It feels like the writers still don’t know what they want to do with Sela - pretty sad considering the series is almost over. However, it was the rest of the team being so against Sela talking with a guy and...

Re: Jyuohger 36 released

I was dreading this episode, but it wasn't terrible. The not-quite culture clash of the Zyumans not knowing about Halloween was fun. Pity we didn't spend a little more time on that. Mami may have been ungrounded from reality, but I thought she was a pretty good representation of a pre-teen girl who ...

Re: Jyuohger 35 released

It’s rare for sentai to be able to surprise me, but I really had no idea how they avoided Cubal’s blast from space until they explained it. Clever. I liked that Misao didn’t throw down his changer at first because technically that wasn’t what Bang Rey was holding. Kinda interesting that they’re now ...

Re: KR Ex-Aid 03 released

I don’t think I was as critical of the episode, but I do agree that they really need better security at that hospital. It’s ridiculous how often children (patients) run away. Sentai has gotten creative when it comes to making in-series reasons for recycling monster suits, but I love that Rider has b...
