Alt Title: Never do anything other than what you want

Alright episode. Entertaining enough. Again, my problems with it are purely viewing it as an adult. Green and Blue haven't had to learn any lessons or change the way they do anything, which is odd for a character and story arc?

Maybe the real arc is Jewel learning to become a leader. But again, if your instinct as a leader is to bend over backwards so your team can do whatever they want, you're not going to be a very effective leader, right?

My one note was: "Is that a magic handle, or could any inanimate carbon rod do?"

Loved the mecha fight scene. Again, I think it looks really good in the dimly lit background. Kind of disappointed that Sky Mage just becomes a sword and chest piece though?

Have to agree with you Take. The episode was really good, except for the fact they let Blue act like a moron when the usual episode lesson would be don't worry about being cool. Maybe Kiramager is pushing a message of its okay to be yourself or they all have to be strange and quirky to use the powers.

Another episode I really liked. The first takeaway lesson was the more obvious 'it is not good to bottle up all your troubles by yourself' which is easy enough to agree with. As for the stuff that happened during the fight, I still feel like taking the most generous interpretation and seeing it as our Red choosing to help out his friend in this situation by appealing to their eccentricities rather than just ordering them to stop. Would a more efficient leader do the latter? Obviously. But that's just not how the kind of leader Jyuruu is, and I think that's fine.

I forgot to comment on the mecha last time, but in both episode two and this one, I really adore the giant fight scenes. I liked the previous episode's a little more, but both had a really nice amount of effects. I especially like the monster roars of the kaiju echoing, and the way the ground exploded from that shovel swing. The fights taking place at fake-night are clearly just to make the sparkly look of the mechs stand out all the more, and I have to admit it's working very well.

...That said, it really bugs me that the combination of all five stones just has blue turning into the weapon? That's not really being 'part' of the mech in any way. Even being pasted on the back would be better.

I like the characters with lives and quirks in this installment compared to the freeloaders from the previous Sentai.

agreeing with the "night makes them extra sparkly".

Blue, I give credit. he's got some serious comedy in him... between the "don't try this at home" line, the "suffering", and the breakdown in the dressing room.... yeah.

(loved how they threw him under the bus one last time at the dance number.... /snicker)

I can see it being a little cheesy with Blue, but I look at it as the first supplemental mech will be a new weapon and easily interchange. to be seen.

Humour was on point this episode. If this is the tone going forward I'm all in.

Has there been a Super Sentai before where the role call includes couple's ballet moves? (And when the inevitable male sixth ranger shows up will he pick up Jyuruu for some pose?)

I recently started working out at home with resistance bands, but one thing about it is definitely strange: the bands are color coded by resistance but Red has the fourth highest level of resistance!! Blasphemy! (Although, Yellow being the fifth highest kind of fits the season, lol.) (The order is Yellow, Red, Blue, Green, and with Black having the highest level of resistance.)

I laughed a lot with this episode, so I will not bash it. I also liked the "behind the scenes" footage of filming an action movie.
