Kyouryuuger 10 released

God I hope Utsusemimaru gets a nickname soon or else I'm going to die from typing his name so often.

Pretty cool episode, a titch hard to translate all of Gold's thunder/lightning attacks since Japanese basically uses the two words interchangeably. I like Gold's backstory, it's been a while since we had a gozaru-ing samurai. (He's also pretty easy on the eyes~)

I'm actually rather surprised (but really happy) that Ramirez is still showing up in the series. It's nice to know they're not just throwing away characters.

Pretty fun. I like all the stuff Amy is doing, like saving Souji and bringing Ramirez.

I like how Ian is like "ugh, I have to use this fart attack to get away".

I don't know if it's that interchangeable. Raiden is probably lightning, but raimei and kaminari should probably be thunder. I mean, it's pretty interchangeable in English too, just lightning is more about the physical bolt itself and thunder more the sound?

I like Gold's wings. I liked Peteraiden-Oh better before I saw his attacks.

The way I understand it is
雷 (Kaminari/Ikazuchi) Thunder (sound) but sometimes the flash of lightning
稲妻 [電] (Inazuma) always the flash of Lightning
雷電 (Raiden) Lightning, but also sometimes "Thunder and Lightning"
雷鳴 (Raimei) Thunder, but with the kanji for sound after. Since kaminari is sometimes used to describe the flash.

How shocking! Not to rumble with you, but I don't know about kaminari/ikauzchi. Both my dictionary and jisho.org are pretty static with "thunder" as the definitions.

Jap? What a bolt of racism! I cannot believe they can discharge such a roaring boom of insensitivity!

Oh, I never ment to insinuate that those were the straight-up dictionary definitions. Just from what I've seen them used as in japanese TV and comics (no specific examples to cite tho.)

See, I thought they were pretty static too, but when I tried explaining thunder and lightning in English to a Japanese speaker, I used "kaminari" to translate "thunder" and "ikazuchi" to translate "lightning" and ended up confusing them because apparently to them the two words were nearly the same, and they were actually shocked to find out English has different words for the two. I dunno, could've been just that person.

That's what I thought too. Kaminari=Thunder, Ikazuchi=Lightning. But for Kaminari/Ikazuchi its the same kanji 雷 just a different reading. And as far as i've seen, the dictionary definition is the same for both readings. Inazuma (稲妻 (電)) however, is always used to refer to the flash of lightning not the sound (thunder)

I've seen it complicated like this in english as well.
Personally for me it's, Thunder=the sound, Lightning=the flash. However i've seen people use Thunder=the flash, Thunder clap=the sound.

Good first impressions for Gold, all the way around. It’s nice how his transformation music and “dance” reference the era he comes from. His costume is a nice compromise of matching the rest of the team yet still have some individual flair. Gold’s wings are impressive in CGI form, but the flaps look a little silly when they’re not in use because of the way they bounced around.

As for his attacks, they’re pretty cool. It was uniquely helpful of “Zandar Thunder” to write out its own name as it was slamming into the target. I was a little confused, though. Does Gold have an extra battery, or did the writers miscount? He used one to transform, three ZyuDenchi in the sword, and still had one to activate his mecha.

Other points:
-Torin saying “There are many things I cannot tell you yet.” Of course he can’t - they can’t risk him spoiling something that will pop up later in the series. Daigo accepting that with a nod and a smile didn’t shock me, but Nossan and Ian were surprisingly nonchalant about Torin keeping secrets.
-Ian’s line not long after that: “Unlike my partner, Gold is still alive.” Now, why does that make me so very suspicious? Oh, right. It’s because Ian got blasted away before he could go over to his friend’s “dead” body.
-That “kids don’t do that at home” message during Amy’s flashback made me think Akibaranger had invaded.
-It was nice to see Souji’s dad again, both because he got to help out and for being worried about his son.
-Gabutyra looked like a dog with a bone they way he was gnawing on Pteragordon for most of the battle.
-They knew that Gold was back because the mecha ripped the cape off. So, capes = evil? Good thing these guys will probably never meet the Magirangers.

I always figured that they had the three batteries on their belts for the weapon attacks and the transformation one didn't count. But I can't be arsed to double check.

I love Ian's line. Yeah, Go-On black is super dead, remember that kids XD

I liked seeing Amy in a different outfit than her Kyouryuu civilian outfit.

why is DeBoss active in the Warring States Era? I thought they were trapped in ice after the dinosaurs' extinction.

Only the leader was trapped in the frozen castle. Chaos and the others have been active. Don't forgot about Ramiez who fought centuries before Gold did.

I wonder if the other rangers (KyouryuuGrey, etc) will be from other eras.

Man, Utsusemimanthat'salongname is a pretty cool guy. And his theme song is awesome. And he's a samurai. A gold samurai.

...Sixth Ranger who's a samurai and gold...sounds familiar...must be my imagination.

You can see that his morals are different from the rest...or at least, that he doesn't seem to get that King is just a nickname, and Daigo doesn't rule over anything. Then again, considering his previous lord was Daigo with a moustache...

A bit on your translation though, you translated KyoryuGold's second attack as "Thunder Cannon". However, it's name in Japanese is 雷電飛翔斬り Raiden Hishō Giri, which would translate to, more or less, Thunderstorm Flying Slash (from my limited Japanese knowledge, Wikipedia uses Lightning Flying Slash instead). Plus "Thunder Cannon" makes no sense whatsoever. You probably misheard it.

Also Pteraiden-Oh was cooler with the cape. And could do with a cooler finisher, but I'm guessing they're saving that for whenever it combines with anything.

Oh, and it was cool to see Ramirez back. I wish he had untransformed at some point, but oh well.
