Gai having a daydream like that kind of reminded me of "That 70's Show" and they way they acted in it reminded me of Goseiger.

Also the only thing I'm not really liking about Gai is that he is sort of clashing with Don.
He forgot him in the daydream and then blocked his attack on the MOTW. Plus he's kind of pushing Don out of the comedic relief role.
Although they're approaching it from different direction(Gai is really over the top while Don just acts strange), so I don't think there should be a conflict there.

Yes, but they didn't have Abarekiller, someone else thought they did and I suggested they might have mixed him up with one of those two.

I'm just here to say my favorite bit. Gai looking up to the GokaiGalleon and yelling "OH MY GAWD!!!"
Well I guess I'm not a pirate anymore now that img limits exist.

Help I can't help finding every yellow ranger cute

I am pretty sure that Gai is more hyper than Genta. Energetic to the point of irritating. I hope he tones it down a little after his introduction.

The Joe in Gai's mind terrifies me. I never want to see that again.

I am a little worried about how they are going to differentiate Gai and Don. They are both the goofy, poor fashion sense type character. But I am convinced that there is a big revelation about Don coming. They've been ignoring his back story and downplaying his role for a while. Gai forgetting him is just another example. If there's nothing there then the writers must really hate the actor or something.

I'm hoping Don has no backstory at all. Just to subvert people's hopes that he's some secret badass. Maybe he's Ahim's manservant or something, they seem like a discrete unit already.

F*** you, movie. Seriously. F*** you.

Gai is clearly the sentai fanboy (probably raised on Go-Onger if the dream sequence is any indication), yet he Rider Kicks a Goumin and I believe he quotes Den-O. Clearly someone's priorities are mixed up :P

It's also good to see Giru do something legitimately clever and evil. Did he take a level of Mastermind during the movie? (Again, f*** you, movie.)

Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I may have watched 3 episodes of Power Rangers total in my life before Gokaiger. That being said, I think part of me died watching Doc be Tommy.

Why wouldn't you want Don to have a backstory? I think he could potentially by the most interesting of the main group.

Personally, I loved this episode, but I don't really like the super happy and quirky 6th members like Gentai and Gai. I have no idea what the 6th Goseiger was like because I just couldn't watch that series no matter how hard I tried.

Gai as GokaiSilver on the other hand is totally amazing. I love his fighting style with his weapon, though I wish he didn't talk so much. Other than that, the only thing I don't like about him is his henshin device and that weird block on the back of his helmet.

Also, I don't if it's ever been done like this in past Super Sentai/Power Ranger incarnations. But the characters Antonio Garcia, PR:Samurai's Gold Ranger, and Gai Ikari, obviously GokaiSilver, seem to dress a lot alike. Maybe it's just coincidence with this episode, or perhaps it could be a subtle nod to PR. I've heard that's happened in the past.

Antonio Garcia

Gai Ikari

It might be a little hard to tell in these pics, but I almost thought they were supposed to be the same person for a split second.

Some people believe episode 10 is the J.A.K.Q Grand Power episode because they all transformed into J.A.K.Q and used their finishing weapon. They seem to be ignoring the fact the Gokaigers did not meet up with anyone from J.A.K.Q nor was it mentioned they got the J.A.K.Q Grand Power.

Look out, its the high-up gan gan gingin giroman!

I get the anchor theme, but really, that pose again? You only get to do that pose if you can jump good and score with a catgirl!

Well, he's easily the sixth best silver ranger I've ever seen. That said, if they didn't let him kill the boss, his track record would be the same as that kid from the second episode.

Is there a copy human...I mean an amazing silver man near you?

This spoiler's totally killer, dudes:

Because a bunch of people have it up their asses that his utter lack of one to this point means it's got to be really awesome and satisfying for them to delay it so long.

Marvelous: hand-recruited by AkaRed to gather the Ranger Keys and obtain the ultimate treasure; the apogee of confidence
Joe: former Zangyack special forces who bailed due to moral conflicts; knows the enemy
Yuka: avarice-obsessed thief; rolls natural 20s, has special rule Favoured Enemy: Goumin
Ahim: last survivor of her entire world; keeps the crew civilized
Don: wears plaid; cooks sausages, gropes himself

I don't think he needs anything more than that. He's certainly not some secret badass. He's Don.

Yeah well wait till we find out Darth Vadar is Don's father... Wait wouldn't that be the the emporer of Zangyack? Then that means Oiles Gil is his half-brother. OMG don't kiss the spoiled prince Don!

... .... Sorry the jolly old saint made me say it.

Doc isn't being Tommy... Doc isn't being even Burai. He's just wearing a suit. Doc is Doc. No matter what you put him in.

Am I the only one who thinks that Gai's nose is very distracting?

He would be a better cast member when someone decides to make a live-action B-Daman series.
Seriously, it looks like you can fit some marbles in them. :lol:

Gai is goofier than Don, can't wait to see the two of them do something funny

I think GokaiSilver's design looks cool, the black color of his helmet is apparently a bandana

Also, his [preview spoiler]

Mecha is a Robot Dinosaur Drill, so it's awesome


Also Damarasu (I think that's his name), seems to disagree with Waruzu Giru treatment of the Action Commander, possible betrayal in the future?
