I thought Decade jokes became not cool since the last time OOO was syndicated?

Also, I love the stoning process on the kid. It looks like he was progressively wrapped in more and more duct tape lol.

I thought so too! XD
I have a question. When the black ranger summons his Guardian Beast, he calls it 'JuuMammoth.' If i remember right, from goseiger, the word 'Juu' means or hints 'Beast,' so is he calling it 'Beast Mammoth' or something else entirely?

That's actually a good question that QC did bring up. In this case, Juu just means big/massive/heavy. A recent example would be OOO episode 12 title, the third part is Juu Combo (referring to the heavy animals gray combo). Juu will often come up with big or heavy things like big animals or large mecha 重

The jyu you're thinking up is the kanji for ZyuRangers or Jyuken, the one for animals. 獣

Anyway, JuuMammoth would probably translate to Heavy/Big/Massive Mammoth

I mean, these are all written in katakana, but based on what I know about Japanese, these are the kanji that I would associate with them

Ah, so the old saying is true, the first one IS always free... Clever... Okay back on topic.

Hmm, floppy weapons that break easily, think they have a pill for that now.

Floppy weapons? Well I'm just glad that when the sixth ranger shows up, he won't have that stupid floppy shield Tommy always had in American footage.

AH come on floppy sheilds are the best protection. Okay, the best protection is provided by trojan, but you know who can be picky when you need it fast.

Okay back on topic now Kogashi is right they do have pills for that now, they even have pills to make them grow.

*edit* I just realized; why are the most stiffest and most sturdy things in the show are Bandora's? coconut cones, and her hair.

So isn't that kind of unnecessary? It's a Mammoth, so calling it Heavy/Big/Massive is kinda rhetorical because it already is all those things.

Actually, don't quote me on this, but I think a "Giant Mammoth" actually existed.

Maybe FangTrigger is kind of unnecessary? I mean, it has fangs and it uses a gun, it's already those things.

Come on dude, it's just a name

Okay Mr. D I won't, but yes the Giant Mammoth did exsist improper way of calling the Wolly Mammoth and a few other species of Mammoth including the pygmy mammoth.

JuuMammoth would probably translate to Heavy/Big/Massive Mammoth
Im a novice in Japanese so dont quote me, but im pretty sure "Juu" means "beast" (ie 'Zyu'ranger means 'Beast' Ranger and the mecha Snip, spoiler rules are still in effect. And from what someone else said on this board they just use the romanization "Zyu" to make it look cool.).

So Zyu or JuuMammoth means Beast Mammoth: although that doesnt make much practical sense, the additional "Juu" is probably just to make the name sound more badass.

Reason: Spoiler rules apply, even though the series is pretty old
