Re: KR Decade 01 released

To say that this episode was good is a grave understatement. The only KR series that had me hooked from the beginning was Ryuki. Kabuto took a few episodes and I caught Den-O in the middle of the series before going back and watching the first episodes. One thing though. I know these are alternate w...

Re: Fastest Henshin

When it comes to timing, I say it should with "Henshin" until their form is complete. From what I've seen of the modern riders, most of the posing is done BEFORE they say Henshin. Also, when it comes to timing, first time henshins should be what counts, as they are usually the most elaborate. Later ...

Re: Recommend Ryuki to people who watch Dragon Knight

First time I ever saw the original sentai footage was when I was 16 at another con, where some guy put up some AMV on a laptop screen. The rest of us were complaining about it being childish and Power Rangers while he insisted that it was completely different form any of the English versions we had...

Re: Dragon Knight in America

And there's the Knight vs Ryuki fight. I'm glad they implemented it somehow. It was actually very ingenious how they implemented it. Come to think of it, given the American story, it wouldn't have made sense if they left it where it was. Nice to know they're thinking about things like this. At any ...

Re: Dragon Knight in America

I finally got to watch it this past Saturday. I'm impressed. It seems to retain the "Kamen Rider is darker than Sentai" feel. Of course it's not going to be extremely dark, but it's nice to know it's not extremely kiddiefied either. It gives me hope that the Kamen Rider franchise is in good hands. I...

Re: Favorite Power Ranger Series

I had written a post about how the math does not compute to allow Tommy to be Dr. Thomas Oliver, DPal. But there's some time gap betwixt In Space and Lost Galaxy, yet it does not seem to be enough to allow him 4 years of bachelor's studies, 3-4 years of Master's, and then however long it would take...

Re: Recommend Ryuki to people who watch Dragon Knight

*sigh* i know what you mean,another problem i've had is reading magazines with rider or sentai on the cover and people around me=on the bus or whatever are like "OH! POWER RANGERS!" I use photo card of the Den-O movie as a bookmark in one of my textbooks, and whenever a friend of mine sees it, she ...

Re: Favorite Power Ranger Series

I have fond memories of MMPR season 2. It seemed a little less campy than season 1. Plus it had White Ranger vs Green Ranger. That was a nice little gem. Zeo was just weird for me. I dunno if it's because of the switch to new costumes, but it just seemed...off. The first half of Turbo was fairly bad...

Re: Would you buy any of the Sentai if it was officially subbed?

Depends on the series. I'd pick up Maskman or Liveman in a heartbeat.

It's a nice dream. Perhaps they'll do it with Kamen Rider if Dragon Knight is a success. Let people see what it's based on.

Re: Favorite Saban Era Toku...Not Power Rangers?

I wish I could watch VR troopers again because I enjoyed it as a kid, but I wonder hwo it would hold up against my new modern 'adult' eyes. It probably would. From what I remember, VR Troopers didn't try to cram moral values down your throat like PR did at the time. It wasn't really dark, but it wa...

Re:

Shows always seem to be cancelled on Cliffhangers, I think they do it intensionally. >.< A couple of times this is true believe it or not. The shows are up for cancellation so they end it on a cliffhanger hoping that it would generate enough fan interest to bring it back. I believe it's never worke...

Re: Power Ranger R.P.M (2009)

Why Disney couldn't create their own original tv show without uses stock footage from SS since they got load of moneys from everything (movie to clothes to food to junk). Eh, everytime someone says that they should use original footage and all, I'm reminded of Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from B...

Re: Dragon Knight in America

And it's funny how the Japanese call it "Masked Rider" while the Americans call it "Kamen Rider". Do American kids know what "Kamen" is, supposing that they have never encountered the "Kamen Rider" from Japan? I think some people have an idea of what "Kamen" is...based on Sabans Masked Rider and an...

Fastest Henshin

Something that popped into my head randomly last night.

Out of all the modern Riders, which one had the fastest henshin? From "Henshin!" to completed form.

I would have to go with Ryuki here. It was pretty damn fast.

Really? I could have sworn I heard that it was the most popular.

Then which series did have the highest?
