Ninninger 19 sanjou!

Post by takenoko » Sun Jul 05, 2015 12:45 am

Wiki: http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Ninninger_Shinobi_no_19

Shishiou is a pretty fun character. Drinking in a children's show and farting in people's faces? I love Japanese TV.

I like the play on tropes. TV knowledge tells us the eccentric, wild man who couldn't possibly be the engineer has to be the one, because that'd be the big twist. But nope.

The twist that he's the Sky Otomo Nin is pretty good too. It sort of makes sense. He's more of a force of nature than a person.

The preview for the next episode surprised me. I certainly wasn't expecting that.

I think I'll go with Joukyuu Youkai since I think people know that means "high level" or "high class" from Naruto.

Pretty ironic that the title is "Find the Sky Otomo Nin" when they don't do any searching whatsoever. They just stumbled upon him.

Eh, I think he's nasty and not very lion-like. There's also no precedence for Otomo Nins having spirits (though they have shown sentience / feelings) or even human forms, so I'm not sure how I feel about this.

I'm surprised that Kinji ordered Rodeomaru online instead of making it himself.

If the Otomo Nin are clockwork devices, does that mean the story about their alien origins was just a tall tale for Kasumi's sake?

It would make sense. Kinji is a Youkai Hunter, not an engineer.

I think it's just clockwork devices because that's the level of technology that was around when ninjas were around. It's sort of like how everything in certain action movies is a crazy Indiana Jones or Assassin's Creed device with a million things that move around.

Another thing that came to me: there were no consequences for damaging their Shurikens or Ichibantou! Voila magically fixed and go on your way.

Since the sword is also the morpher, shouldn't Takaharu have been instantly demorphed when his sword was broken, instead of only powering down when he got hit by another attack?

Maybe the device isn't magical and it just creates the suit. So the suit you wear until you take it off or someone hits it off.

You clearly haven't seen other Sentai series. My only hope is that everyone gets something like this or can pass around the power and this doesn't turn into a Carnival.

I'm glad that Kinji is back, but will he stay with everyone or will he go back? Either way he's rocking with the Hawaiian shirt he has on. And I figure that he'll talk to Kibaoni more. Just my suggestion on that.

The 720 should be getting reencoded too. If it doesn't have a v2 on it, it's probably the one we released a couple days ago.

Well we finally have half of an answer on Rodeomaru. Cowboy didn't build it, troll-Grandpa's engineer did. Though it doesn't really explain how the engineer got the ability to build such machines, or why he's taking orders for 30M tall city-destroying robots over the Internet from random yahoos.:o

Anyhow, at only 19 episodes in it seems too early to be doing the whole "villains get stronger, heroes seek out a power-up" arc. We still barely understand half of these characters, never mind the true purpose of the Finishing Shuriken. At least the writers were somewhat subtle in setting this up; if you noticed, the MOTW was composed of 2 sealing shurikens, and with only 44 of those it figures that any monster made of 2 would stick around for 2 weeks. Though it does call into question whether every monster is going to be a two-fer now that the enemy has powered up.

Oh, and I liked the design for the Sky Otomo Nin. It has a very old school 80's Sentai feel to it. A large model that is not in the least bit convincingly flying.:P And it's also fitting they got Yamagata Yukio to portray him. Yamagata is spryer than I expected for a man of 58.:o

The 22nd sort of does actually, it implies that EVERYONE in his family line worked as a clockwork engineers (and was famous enough to make a name for it for at least 22 generations). Remember that such families were like name brands in Japan.

The Saika Tetsunosuke that they thought they were meeting was the 21st (the one mentioned in the book as helping to design the original Otomo Nin). We also see his back in the photo. It's unclear how many have been built by his son since his passing.

So the implicit story telling that we're getting is that the Saika family probably has been building ninja gadgetry for their entire line. But Grandpa talked with aliens and got UFOmaru to reverse engineer, who then decided to give the designs to Saika to actually build.

I feel like this monster is the only one we'll see getting the two shuriken power up. They'll probably be back to one for reasons.

Yamagata Yukio is great in this role. Although he's more of a monkey to me than a lion. I think a monkey king reference would have worked better.

the no consequence for the shuriken and swords break is likely they are used in battle. so some damage must be allowed but the youkai was looking to DESTROY so id imagine thats why it took a bit more to desuit them. and even with the sword breaking id imagine most of the "magic" parts are in the handle and under the shuriken slot, save for the buttons.

the lion is likely a coward and doesnt want to be a hero. im guessing thats where that is going. or has some back story in which he is no hero.

werent they sky otominin? now celestial? and trollgrandpa made it sound plural too. i hope it is.

hmm i wonder if trollgrandpa found spirits and infused them into select otominin? and why are people put off by living mech? i remember takeru playing with the lion origami like it was his kitty cat.
