A few things I learned from this episode:
1. The opening scene was weird as fuck. I thought I was watching a commercial. That was probably the point.
2. This show is breaking the fourth wall and now I don't know if I should take it seriously. At least Akibaranger made more sense.
3. The secretary must have a fetish for men with power. I wonder what fantasy she will have in the next episode.
4. Seeing Mika Hijii again was cool. Her little inside Garo joke was funny.
5. Shou reminds me of Den-O's Sieg. Both are totally outrageous characters and they are both white colored.
6. This show is weird. When does the main plot kick in?

so, while the three stooges waste time screwing around, she turns half of the town into butterflies?
"I am 16!" keep telling you that, kaoru...also, i would question that entire "most beautiful girl in the world" conquest, i am not aware of the rules for it. but isn't it a requirement for the contestants to be older than 16? like 21 or something like that? i mean, i know 16 is pretty much an adult in japanese standards(i think...i am really not sure), but i think other countries would be against it. maybe if it was a "young miss teenager" contest it would make sense.(and yes, she might be lying about her age, but that is kind of illegal for a competition). nevermind, maybe i am just overthinking it.

say whatever of the secretary, she is the only person in this town that i can actually get behind, everyone else is too insane for me to get behind

On aside note, since i have been reading bleach, i can't stop thinking of Shou as a quincy, with the arrows and the white motif and the wings(long story with the last part).

Now i kind of want a crossover with Garo.

My first impression is that this is barely a show at all. It's just filmed ridiculousness (and creepy sexiness).

They really seem to be going for the hero monsters to be like the Den-O imagin.

If I got this right:
Gou is Momotaros
Rai and Geki seem to be a mash up of Ryutaros and Urataros.
Shou is Sieg.

SpoilerShow
So I guess that leaves Kintaros for next week.


I keep watching this show, but I'm not sure why.

I think I'm the only one who understood this episode. Shou doesn't know the concept of beauty is in the eye of the beholder so she thinks in absolute terms not in relative terms which beauty is supposed to be view and judged from. The secretary obviously wants to do it with Jin but needs a way for him to comply to her desire.

This show is so weird but I like it. Hitomi is cute and the characters are like the characters from Den-O so I can't stop watching... and we are going to get Tsubasa in the next episode! WOW! XD

Looks like I wasn't the only one that caught Mika Hijii's GARO reference, lol. And I thought that that was Rian as well but I wasn't entirely sure. Also, Tsubasa (DAN the White Knight) is going to be in the next episode too?! Yo, GARO everywhere!

Okay, with watching Episode 04 I really have to say W - T - F? I mean seriously ...

About people asking about the plot: Well it already kicked it, it's gathering all of the allies, smashing all of the enemy soldiers when they arrive. Well as for now...


also I've got a question; Yes Shou - Geki Gou - Rai - Gan is all of the "heroes" being together, but does it mean something when translated? Just asking out of curiosity... or is it just fantasy words?

Shougeki has kanji, so that would mean "shocking". Gouraigan isn't a word.

You can also probably guess at what kanji their names are.
Shou is probably 翔 which means flight
Geki is probably 激 which means violent or 撃 which means attack or 劇 which means theater
Gou is probably 剛 which means strength
Rai is probably 雷 which means thunder
Gan is probably 頑 which means stubborn or 岩 which means boulder

Hey thanks a lot! Hm.. these Kanjis / translations really reflect their personalities ... if you think hard about it ... :D

I never realized that the name of the show was just the name of all 5 Hikaribito.

Now, with all those kuroko and everything else, like the Garo reference or the "break the forth wall", I'm beginning to think that this show is Akibaranger-like.

You should have pay attention to the last line of the OP for realizing the title.

They show the names of all 5 in the OP. Sure they don't use the best font for reading but they do show the name of all 5 there. In the future, watch OPs multiple times to get everything.
