Ultraman Ginga 04 released

Wiki: http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Ultraman_Ginga_04

We're having a centric episode for each of the main characters, and this is Chigusa's episode. Evil is targeting Hikaru's friends now, but how did Alien Valkie get into the pool without anyone noticing?

The cameraman is kinda annoying, but the assistant's yes-man attitude is amusing. "Kneel and beg!"

The sudden appearance of Jean-Killer from the Ultraman Zero universe! The transition to that fight was really too sudden. The pace of this episode was kind of slow, calm and quiet, the sudden attack out of nowhere really caught me by surprise. But for the first time, the Color Timer flashes. So like all other Ultramen, Ultraman Ginga also has a time limit.

This time the monster literally appeared in front of everyone, but no one talked about it at the end, or even told Kakki about it.

The Ultra fanboy in me nerded a bit at the doll at the end.

So I've been thinking, is the King Pandon suit hard to maneuver in? There's hardly any actual fights with it in this and the previous episode.

PS. I lawled at the two paper figures on the school's rooftop when Ragon grows to giant

I think Ultra Seven didn't seem to have the Color Timer that the other Ultras had. Ginga Comfort reminded me of Moon Healing Escalation from Sailor Moon. As for King Pandon, I imagine that it having two heads would make seeing out of it very hard. I imagine the heads are probably empty for the most part except for whatever thing that opens the mouths for the heads. So I imagine the costume is more of a huge sheet than an actual costume.

Seven doesn't have a Color Timer per se, but the Beam Lamp on his forehead serves a similar function.

Yes, this was hilarious. XD

Seven wasn't fitted with a timer originally because he wasn't supposed to be a warrior, but a researcher (something along those lines?).

Kind of slow. Pace has dropped a wee bit. Good to see Jean Killer though.

Seven was meant to be a stand-alone before they decided to have a direct continuity universe, which is why Seven's powers - Eye Slugger, solar power, creating his own human host, hell, even the hexagon eyes - are drastically different from the rest.
Tsuburaya, you are just no good at telling teen romances. The love triangle is so damn obvious, but no pay off whatsoever.
Jean Killer transforming into a car: That looks incredibly awkward. Is he just like sliding on his back?
At least we see that Ginga is not an exception to the color timer rule, though the 3-minute-ramen rule is all but gone by now.

It's more of a jet than a car really.

Ichijouji seemed to defeat Ginga just because he could and was trying for a fast time.

I was surprised that they had one of the main characters become a monster. They never seem to let that happen on a show like Kamen Rider (no supporting characters ever became dopants or yummy hosts, etc).
