Gokaiger 23 released

Post by takenoko » Sun Jul 31, 2011 5:32 am

I'm sure you recognize this week's guest star Shibata Kayoko 柴田かよこ who was the teacher in Shinkenger episode 12. Of course!

I don't know if I care for Luka's back story. I guess it was good that she wasn't super emo about it. I guess this fits with understanding why she's so caring for those other homeless kids.
By coincidence, I looked up fia-luka フィア ルカ which turns out fialka which is a Russian flower as well as a certain cipher machine.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fialka

So I guess the Gokaigers don't have Grand Powers? Or at least not of the type that Basco can steal.

The only thing that I feel the episode could have used was, with the emphasis on sisters and MagiRanger, no reference to Magical Sisters? I guess this is the appreciate little sisters episode of Gokaiger. Maybe I should use that Ahim picture that parodies Ore no Imouto konna ni kawaii wake ga nai for the release... ahhh, whooops!

タクト (ドイツ)Takt
Means tempo or time or something in German.
I guess there's a bunch of these toys that use takt in them. Apparently they're from taktstock which "means a conductor's baton" according to mag. I'm sure the words are related. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taktstock
For those of you who watched our HeartCatch release, oops!

So the hospital name is Rinkai, which I think should be noted to mean coastal.
臨海 【りんかい】 (n) coastal, seaside, (P)

As expected from Basco's noids, the etymology of the monster name is super obvious.
Meran-chan or Meran メラン comes from
Meramera めらめら (adv) flaring up, bursting into flames

My worst fear has materialized.

Doc-san not only screwed his own Gokaiger roll call, but also GoGoV's roll call.

It must be good to be Marvelous, catching a hot chick like Luka.

It was an average episode, with the focus on the girl rangers. Luka's back story is 'meh', not very much is given and I seriously hope the Gokaiger history stories aren't as lame and halve-assed as OOO's is.

Basco uses also characters from sentai that are not even close to rangers. Rio and Melee do look a bit like rangers, but Zuban was just an annoying sword. Basco can keep that one for all I care.

So GoGoV Grand power is a bunch of fire extinguishers. Hmm, the first time a Grand power is both lame and cool at the same time.

I'm kind of disappointed that Gai didn't make any comment about Rio, Mele, and Zuban being there.
I also think they should have done this episode before he was introduced. Since GoGoV is only a five member team he seemed kind of left out of the battle.

So, one of GoGoV's attacks is the brothers throwing their sisters at the monster?
That's a bit unorthodox.

I think Rio and Mele easily make the cut for the group of "extra warriors" that Basco currently has.
They were in the Gekiranger roll call a few times and even had their own mecha.

I agree that Zuban is a weird choice though. I see him as being closer to robots like Datas and Daigoyou than to Signalman or GoseiKnight.
I may be lying

Oh, I don't have a problem with Rio and Melee, they do look like rangers after all. I was half expecting them to show up at one point, although they were never really Super Sentai team members. I saw them like Wolzard and MagiMother. But I really found Zuban the odd one out of the group. So we can expect

Watching this made me me smile for a very simple reason, and that's because of nostalgia. I've not watched GoGoV, but I can fondly remember watching Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue ten-eleven years ago as it was airing. Kind of like how Boukenger is my Sentai gateway drug and Shinkenger is my favorite

Yeah I firmly admit in hindsight that we still don't know much about Ahim, Gai was USELESS, Luka's backstory felt kinda cliche, and that Luka and Ahim have barely interacted on screen. But I didn't and still don't care.

Yellow was a guy in GoGo V. So it wasn't sisters being thrown. At least this episode explains that the public knows about the war. It also explains the woman's reaction, to the Goranger suits in ep1. They all know everyone lost there powers. I wish the kid didn't give Luka and Ahim the info. She wasn't born at the time of GoGo V. The mother should of said it. Sucks that Gai didn't get Matsumi to sign his autograph book. Zuuban being an extra hero is BS. He stole Ninjaman's spot.

At least Gokaiger has the stock archetypes to follow from: Marvelous is the thrill-seeking adventurer with a chip on his shoulder, Joe's the noble ex-soldier, Luka's the gotta-eat-to-live-gotta-steal-to-eat thief, Ahim's still the royal fish out of water, and Doc's...Doc.

I think it's nice to show that your character has flaws, especially since it was sort of touched upon in the maid episode (which no one probably paid attention to because, well, maids). Overall, I thought this was a good episode narrative-wise.

Also, as a former horn player, Basco has terrible posture.

As the episode was ending and Marvelous asked Gai "What is it?", I was expecting Gai to answer "I wish I could get GoGo-V Pink's autograph." Instead, he commented on how Ahim and Luka seemed to have reversed the roles of big and little sisters at that time. :)

:twisted: :twisted: hoho so many female guestsss

I glad they do Gogo V this classic way, in a blink I thought they gonna use recent earthquake theme to commemorate with Gogo V.

Idea with using Magiranger to camuflage is good, I remember Dekapink is also specialist on that, but I think it is with her Deka cellphone.

Gogo V sixth member? I don't remember any, in supersentai.com database there was a women with suit though.

Like some other, I also not understand why Zuuban need included. Rio and Mele is great, but Boukenger's Azuka and bosses (the Shadows) also looks very Ranger in design.

The whole thing with Luka and the Captain kinda reinforces the fact that they are going out. Guess the director wanted to add that extra 'Awww' factor.

Side note:

week or two before this episode was released, someone on JEFusion posted this video of GoGo V transformation with Titanium Ranger, whom I found out when the video was shown was part Power Rangers only, not super sentai. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJlDQaMP57A

Got to admit, the person that did this was good with photoshop.

I'm dying to see how this one turns out. Super Sentai has a record for bad guys trying to do good reverting back to their evil ways or being used in some form of evil plot

LOL @ Gai, Mabe and the elders. LOL @ Gai standing in front of Mabe. LOL @ Gai and Luka's act. EPIC LOL @ the guy in drag and at Doc and Joe realizing they wearing make up.

No, Ahim, she's not pregnant, she just ate a whole watermelon...

Shooting fire at a fire kaijin... Not very smart, Mabe-chan.

See, Basco? That's what you get for not reading Gai's encyclopedia. Though I thought they were going to use GoseiBlue's camoumirage. Now that I think about it, it was nice that they used Magiranger when talking about family.

This episode was awesome and by far one of the best and most convincing girl power eps I've seen. Also, I almost died from the cuteness. Luka and Ahim make a really nice pair.

And the shippers will rejoice because Mabe caught Luka and Joe caught Ahim (was she heavy, he seems to be doing a lot of effort XD). Of course the AhimXLuka shippers will be happy too.


Damn you Toei for taking too long to release the DVDs. I want to watch Gokai movies soon...
