Last week's results: 3.62 / 5 (13 votes)

Alternate Title - 12 Saints

That was surprisingly good. Made good use of the fact that there's 12 members. Each of the characters had sort of a relevant thing to face, although the weaker ones are pretty inevitable given how imbalanced some of the characterization has been for this series.

When they first arrived, and it's just Spada and Raptor, for a moment I thought it was Girls in Trouble, since I just saw that movie last night. Seems kind of fitting that Yellow and Pink in this series are close.

Keep on track, KyuuRanger. Use your gimmick well and have actual character moments and we'll get along just fine.

Aw man, Sawai Miyuu last week and Hata Mizuho this week playing a mom. Sucks to grow old.

Edit: Kotarou, seriously, pick up your brother from the enslaved Earth and keep him on Orion. At least be your little brother's keeper instead of going on adventures across the galaxy while ignoring him. I bet Kotarou doesn't even know if his brother is alive or not.

This is like the worse version of Maadakko yet...

Eri-Nyaa, you're better than this. Please quit the show and move on.

Alright for now. Can't wait for next week's P-Bandai Exclusive demonstration.

That Shin-chan commercial was so creepy…

Right, Kyuuranger. It was a decent episode. I assumed based on last week’s preview that the spirit obstacles would all be evil, but it was kind of nice that Commander and Kotarou got a chance to interact with (the real?) spirits of their loved ones one last time. (Raptor...why...)

Hey, at least we finally got an answer on who is watching Kotarou’s little brother while he’s running around the galaxy. I figured he was okay, but I know that was bothering some people.

I still think Koutarou is the best character. He's got a clear reason for wanting to save the Earth and really had a moment going there with his mom. This whole episode really was much better for him being the main character.

It's Kotarou with one u. You can remember it's Ko because it means "small" like "small bear". Or in this case, "small tarou".

my thing was this:
i liked that Kotarou got some development, BUT, i felt Tsurugi fighting his former ally, and perhaps getting closer could have been a better story line to develop his "legendary" character. sure seeing the kid make peace with his mother who died when he is younger and strengthen his resolve to protect the universe is a good plot too .... i felt he got enough, for now, spot light in the brothers arc.

Kyutamajin is a mess even with all 12 members. whats worse ... that was the design that made it to the light.

other seemingly important things:
-we werent allowed to see dr anton's face, and champ couldnt fight him
-naga saw no one
-balance saw naga who did nothing to stop him. thats gotta be a hint.

so about this tokei kyutama ... are they only to SEE the past or will they be there?

5/5

Another episode that surpasses past episodes of transforming everyone. It seems Kotarou overcome his fears for the loss of his mother.

Next Episode:

And of course they bring back Octopussy. Urgh. I get that they're going for a running gag, but the execution hasn't been good enough to properly pull that off.

That's because he's the most authentic. Everyone else is a one-dimensional caricature of some kind, be it the fishy chef, the overly eager Red, or the delusional Pink. Kotarou on the other hand is an honest to goodness well-balanced individual who wants to save the galaxy rather than spout of catch phrases.

Is it sad that the best character on the show is the damned kid?

Humbug. X/2 + 7 is divergent; the older you get, the wider the range becomes. In the long run that s a good thing. :P

.

Yeah, checking out the wiki and finding out Kotarou's mom is my age made me feel old... Either that or Kotarou is younger than I thought...

Although a decent use of the 12 characters, I feel like this could have easily been a two parter allowing a better look at some of the characters.

So much (potential) foreshadowing, lets hope it leads somewhere.

Speaking of 'foreshadowing' still that hologram addressing his highest commanders, looking forward to where they are going with that.

Also, what is up with that female Vice-Shogun? That personality and voice combined with that chest and belly...

Want me to make that image even worse? That Vice-Shogun is voiced by Arisa Komiya, aka Yoko Usami from Go-busters.. Yeah it's going to be somewhat weird.

Overall, I enjoyed this episode alot more than the past few episodes in regards to the writers remembering that there are 12 members and using it to the advantage of the series, however I am dissapointed that the first Vice-shogun wasn't well developed and the plot point of him not remembering Houou was thrown out way too quickly (unless i blanked that part). Finally I am glad Koutarou's drive was highlighted, tho i was expecting his mother to turn the key during the fight but i'm glad they didn't go that way

The less I see KyuutamaJin, the better. And I thought nothing could be uglier than Jyuohger's mecha.

Kotarou got very nice character development. Tecchuu died too early though, like Elidron. :/

The time it took to complete the roll call, they could have been taken down 4 times over.
