I did a double-take too, but no. His name is Shimegi Enoku.JumperPrime wrote:Am I mistaken, or is the guy that kept walking by without stopping when the fruit got dropped the same actor that played Chiaki on Shinkenger?
I really liked it. It has a different feeling to it than the other toku productions I've watched, which I realize after reading through this thread is because it technically doesn't belong to the tokusatsu genre. I'm not sure what to expect next, and I like that. It's the tradition of Kamen Rider and Sentai that draw me back to series after series, but it also makes those shows predictable. I'm looking forward to a more mature story mixed with a little bit of the supernatural.
Buchinko's hiding spot makes me laugh. Just when I think I've seen everything Japan can come up with, they pull out something else. Nice to see Nao again. I've lost track of how many series I've watched where she makes at least a guest appearance - 6 or 7?
That is pretty interesting. If I had to compare this to any show I've already watched, I would have said Hibiki. There was something about the scene where Taihei returns the trash to the car driver that reminded me of the way Hibiki would act - a warrior, but a big kid at heart. Plus, they've already established the importance of music.
