Shougeki Gouraigan 05 released

Post by takenoko »

Wiki http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Shougeki_Gouraigan_05

Can you tell an episode is different when Amemiya Keita is directing it? Shinji and his secretary appearing for five seconds to talk about flowers, that's enough of those two that I need for an episode.

But overall it felt like this episode had a story to it. The weird elements are still weird, but some weird monster guy needing protection from Gan who is overzealous is a story we as the audience can relate to.

The narration still bugs me though.

Pretty weird sequence where the Hikaribito screw around with that spiral thing. Isn't that bug repellant incense? Do they usually keep it a pig shaped thing like that?

So the Garigari ice candy guy is a reoccurring character?

Man, the floor status design is really an amazing concept to me. Seeing it turn blue when Gou falls on his back, or turning barely red to show how weakened Gou is, seems really cool.

When all five of them combine, I hope they summon Captain Planet.

Those are the oldest children in the world.

Yeah Shouma Yamamoto finally appears! I really like how he played Gan... But I can't help but wonder if his voice has been dubbed, it seems off somehow. Really enjoy watching the group of them figure out the human world, with Granny there as a foil. The footage of them being silly that runs during the end credits is always good for a laugh or an awww.

Also had a good laugh at Shou coming on to Gou in his sleep. Not sure what was stranger/funnier... That Gou got excited and was embarrassed about it, or that Geki and Rai wanted to hold him down and watch. (^_^;)

An episode that makes sense! What's this world coming to?!

I like this episode. It's not all over the place, and stuff that's suppose to be funny are actually funny. The story is understandable, and there's some urgency as Gou is actually losing.

And Granny, the queen of the house with her servants. She can even close the door without touching! (feel the Force...)

As usual, the footage during the ED is just awesome

More like mosquito coil. Japan has all kinds of holder to hold these things, so it can repel mosquito and decorate the house at the same time. Piggy shaped is a fairly common holder

Well this is strange. This episode feels so weird because it actually makes sense.

Pretty sure this ep needs a nudity warning; in the background circle-thingies during the duel; I'm fairly certain I saw some bare boobs and butts.

Disappointed we didn't see more of Jin and the secretary. (Granted, I kinda wanna see as much of her as possible, if you get my meaning.....)

Overall, I'm really liking this series. It doesn't make sense, since I hated Den-O for just this exact kind of silliness.....but it kinda works here.

At this point, everyone should realize every episode will have some sort of nudity or questionable material.

Yeah, I think that's the episode before it.

I don't really count the nudity in the circle stuff, it's so far in the background that it could be anything.

It was a very nice episode, every episode I always like more, much more than garo season 3.
P.S. But yesterday was the birthday of Yamamoto Shouma?

Thank you.

I might be slowpoking, but if you put all the heroes names together, it makes the show name.

Liked this new guy. Big fan of his actor.

Either/or. It was pretty funny either way. :shock: Stoic Gou and his underlings; always trying to help him out (whether he needs it or not).

Thank you for explaining that. I had been wondering what that scene was all about.

Mosquito coils are very useful for the summer cause they keep the biting insects away. I have a stack in my apartment, except my coil holder is shaped like a cat.
