KR Zi-O Hyper Battle DVD released

Post by takenoko » Tue Nov 26, 2019 2:19 am

Wiki

Oh Zi-O, how I haven't missed you.

But this was amusing enough. It plays into the tropes in a successful and it's more fun with the Zi-O characters than I remember having at the end. And hey, at least we get to see Ora and Heure in school uniforms.

Feels a bit weird to portray tough guy Geiz as a scaredy cat. Also, as a PTSD soldier from the future, doesn't it seem kind of cruel to put him through this? Ah well, it's just a kid's show.

Sadako Tsukuyomi is her best form.

That was a thing and it happened?

Apparently the guy in the beginning is from the Terebi-kun TV show (okay, I guess?) so enjoy your cameo dude.

The haunted classroom thing is liberally lifted from one part of the Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai "Don't Laugh!" New Year's special they do every year where they put 5 comedians in a dark school and have them follow signs with some cheap horror scares along the way.

The most thing that have been bothering me is why Another Gaim was there with Ghost and Hibiki? Another Ghost obviously a "ghost" and Hibiki is an Oni, so it's scary. But why the samurai? That's not a scary or horror thing. Bibill Geiz was the greatest (funniest) form😂 in the Hyper Battle DVD.

Note: At first I thought it was Specter Armor because of the blue parts. But the Eyecon Shoulder with Yurusen's eyeball convinced me that it's not what I thought.

I guess it is canon now that Heure and Ora were a human brother and sister pair who were killed and reprogrammed by Schwartz?

It doesn't explain why Ora had her own "ability" that Schwartz did give anyone else.

It wasn't great. But it's a decent enough video. And certainly a lot more creative than the usual Televi-Kun HBV fare (Prime Rogue, may you always be forgotten).

I had the same thought as well. I have a sneaking suspicion that they did this because of the actor, rather than the character. In fact I imagine the cast may have had more fun making it than we did watching it.:lol:

Meh. Wasn’t expecting much, so hard to get disappointed.

LOL!!! This was hella funny. But what is up with Tsukiyomi and wanting to see real ghost? Also why was she crawling onto the roof near the end?

Exactly what I was thinking. Surely Another Kiva would have made more sense.
