Toqger 17 departing now

Post by takenoko » Sun Jun 22, 2014 7:39 am

Wiki http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/TQG_Station_17

Yay Kobayashi is back. It's funny how the silly Sentai get the serious sixth members. I like how Zaramu's overly serious nature is played off for laughs though. (That's a hero's entrance!)

No idea what Zaramu's name is supposed to mean though. It doesn't appear to be a variant for black in another language. But I don't think he's just Zaramu Kaijin either. Someone let me know if they figure it out.

He should keep his invincible helmet on though. I like his constant frowning lips. But in all honesty, I'm looking forward to seeing how his background as a former Shadow fits into everything.

I just hope Zett's motivation is an interesting one.

According to Rangerwiki:
"His former name, Zaram, is the Arabic word for "Darkness"(ظلام/ẓalām)"

So we should probably go with Zalam then?

For a moment I thought that Conductor was really TOQ6 :P

Zalam is definitely a male version of Juvia from Fairy Tail. I think he realized that he would have to fight with Tokacchi is probably why he didn't join with the Toqgers. It's really obvious that if the mecha fight is at the beginning that there will be important stuff going on in the episode.

Zalam's a pretty cool 'ombre. I think he's going to fit in juuuuust fine.

And as for the preview of the summer movie...

Oh my god Hyadain is a villain out of goddamn nowhere?! :D
If you don't know who Hyadain is, he's a musician! Check out his channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/hyadain2525
Check out this song he did with Hijii Mika from GARO! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mw47dhbvOoE
I'm also a fan of this song he did for Christmas a few years back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2d7UhK5SAE
But he also does songs from video games sometimes. And they're awesome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3nJnSqLquk

Basically, Hyadain is a cool dude and he will single-handedly make this movie amazeballs!

Anyone else notice the Heart-puddle at the beginning of the episode? Talk about symbolism.

Hey, Hyadain. I know who that is.

I like how pointlessly violent Schwarz was with that Kuro. :lol: Seriously, why? Just to reinforce that he's a bad guy? It actually kind of doesn't fit with his character, he's supposed to be the calm, level-headed villain.

I'm also glad that we finally know what it is that he's been plotting behind everyone's backs. It'll be interesting to see how this taking over the world with trains vs with darkness thing plays out.

I wonder if that little draisine that Zalam had in his shed will see any use in the next episode? It'd be cool if, as Toq 6, he had a motorcycle draisine. It would really fit in with his character as a rail worker.

Yeah, I thought of her as well. I hope Netflix adds the second season soon.

So that is the same Hayadin that does all those flash animations based on old game music? I wasn't aware that he did stuff professionally.

Oh, I didn't. I wonder if that's intentional or if that's just how it came out when they added the water.

Is it just me or does the beginning of Zalam's song sound like the theme of an over-a-decade-old ranger who did not value his life much?

Really love this episode.
Loved the character, some kind of lonely "dark" gunman.
Loved Zett getting mad.
Loved all kind of humor, from Light who did not listening at all to conductor trying to transform.
Maybe the best episode until

I love ToQ6, but I just wish he'll darken the lighthearted series a bit. Yes his backstory and battle phrase is dark, searching for a death place but i really want him to pull a Meteor and darken ToQ like Ryuusei darkened the Fourze series (though Ryuusei's was temporary just lasting until 32 went past). I want a darker Kobayashi Sentai like Shinkenger. It's not Liveman but Shinkenger is a beauty. Was hoping this guy'd do it and make things serious. Finger crossed! The theme and the link to death with a harmonica. Come on, better than Meteor, PULL AN ETERNAL! Or Reverse-Eternal since Katsumi was dead and is interested to feel like he's about to die again.

You certainly aren't. I had to go back and listen a couple of times to make sure I wasn't hearing things. Zalam does seem a fatalist character. Let's see how his character shapes up.

So I just had a thought, Ticket turning into TOQ 6 rather than the Conductor might be more than a mere joke. Who's the real puppeteer here?
