Ninninger 17 sanjou!

Post by takenoko »

Wiki: http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Ninninger_Shinobi_no_17

I really appreciate Kinji. He really brings the humanity to the story. You know he's kind of weighed by something from his past that's related to his family. He's the outsider trying to find his place amongst this crazy family of ninjas. So his stuff is good and really works.

The mecha thing not so much. I mean, it's the mecha for dealing with sea problems (Cue Knight Boat reference here). How often is that going to happen? I think my problem with the current combinations is that none of them are interesting. They're all just a different color of Shinobimaru except Paonmaru which has an elephant chest and Dragomaru. It doesn't change the centerpiece enough for me to care about the change. ShurikenJin just got a surfboard, that's it. And that's boring.

Fk this show, I'm sorry for ever thinking/hoping that maybe they would turn Kinji around from being Akira 2.0 and make him a serious character but nope.
The Ninjers are gonna be totally okay with knowing a serial assassin and no one is ever gonna question it because "~da lolz~"......

On a positive note, Kasumi waving as Akaninger ran into the illusion world was unintentionally funny.

The way they wrapped up this particular story arc was so anticlimactic. It was like a silent fart that was held in for far too long. You are glad it is over but it still stinks.

The new Otomo Nin was a surprise because it had nothing to do with the unresolved plot thread about taming Sky Otomo Nin.

It's good to see that Tsugomori still has lots of interesting ideas to use against the Ninningers.

I’m pretty sure Kasumi is treating this whole “Last Ninja” competition as a social science experiment and a chance to show off her inventions, not because she cares about being the Last Ninja.

Is it me, or are they just adding “no Jutsu” to anything they do in battle now?

I know it was for the sake of the audience, but it’s pretty funny that Kinji’s father and brother go from speaking English to better Japanese than Kinji. Then again, I guess it’s possible the family was from Japan originally and Kinji was the only one who grew up in America after they died, so maybe there was a good reason for it.

Starninger in the group pose looks okay, but the other parts of his transformation added into the roll call really doesn’t fit well. I wonder if it’s going to continue being that jarring or if they’re planning on redoing his stock footage once he inevitably comes back.

I probably got more of a kick out of Kinji’s date-line mistake than I should have.

Speaking of Kinji, I wonder why Tsugomori specifically targeted him - was Starninger that much of a threat, was it because Kinji was an outsider compared to the other ninjas and easier to isolate, or was it was because he was aware of Kyuuemon’s secret meetings with Kinji? (Or was it just random…)

I feel like the "no jutsu" overuse is definitely self-aware. A lot of them are just jokes and most of them are Kasumi, I think.

Speaking of jutsu. What's up with You-Power at 6:53 instead of Youjutsu from the rest of the series and this episode?

I liked it. Not the best episode (but Ninninger been pretty weak over all imho) but I'm finally feeling the chemistry between Kinji and Takoharou. Once they both got toned downed a lot they got a pretty decent dynamic going. Hopefully now we got some better spotlights on the others though.

So Starninger leaves with no resistance? I mean, I figure he'll come back but still... The ending was just bad. What's the point of having the moment when they're trying to encourage Starninger to keep fighting if he's just gonna leave? You can't have a "feel good moment" then do a 180!

I imagine that Gramps would take all of their shuriken if the family tries to keep Kin-chan around. I also imagine Gramps wasn't too proud of Surfie-Otomo and wanted to get rid of it ASAP. Gramps probably is the most deceitful mentor ever.

It's been a long time since the extra guy wasn't around all the time.

Ooooh Ningers...You just lost one of the reason why i still watch this show, and there are not that many......

I agree with you Takenoko, most of the Otomo are used as weapons, so we have to deal with slighty new face cos of that bs toy as head, and different lil guy at the seat, eeeh..... I realyy hope they up they game with mecha design, someone needs to tell them that they suck.....

Srs, we won;t even get a fight eh between Star and Red? Well, at least that deal with Werewolf got my attention, plus rest of ningers stars realising that Red is a complete idiot, so they can use him however they want...That doesn't fix jack shite, cos exploring the bad character is still nowhere near having an actual good char, but we shouldn't expect anything from this series aside from plot twist....Also, Star confirms Kyuuemon as female, off to porn.

Next week
Spoiler
Yakumo wants dat monster pussy, but he ain't gonna get it....eeeeh, srs, fuck this series....I won't even be mad, when ningers will get shredded into power rangers...

I for see Ninninger turning into Drive. I hope the story doesn't go the way I think it will go. Don't see a point in me watching it then and that does kinda make me sad since I have yet to drop a Season.

no! not starninger! come back! noooo!!!

he'll be back. im sure of it. they send him off with surfermaru yet .... well anywho .... troll grandpa strikes again. i mean why send someone away who could be of help? didnt he see how things worked out with skinkengold? he wasnt a samurai but hell! both takeru and kaoru saw his merits. he does know other ranger teams soo what gives?

i wonder if they will go back to that werewolf monster or if it was a generic 'americian' monster?

so thats the final shurikens power? to rewrite the world? really? i guess star would rewrite the world so that his family doesnt die.
likelyhood of kasumi being the leader is increasing. is she the oldest?

Takaharu is the oldest with Kasumi and Cloud being tied for second oldest.

I don't think Gramps would lie about Kyuuemon's gender. He may lie about many other things but that isn't one of them since there isn't a point at all.

Holy cripes, development of the story and character for Starninja while also revealing more about the plot mcguffin! That's intere-oh thank goodness, nearly got distracted from the real focus of the show... Making it clear that Takaharu is a flipping idiot. I mean, I get that that basically says he has no real fears, or that he's not had a terrible memory in his life... but seriously, what is with the trope in Japan of characters not liking green pepers? They're not even the spicey green pepers! ... And the show's lost me again a bit, as after revealing that there's Skymarus to tame, we get a submarine that turns into a surfer...

Still while I can kind of tell how they plan to go with Starninja and why they revealed that information about the finishing shurikan, I look forward to it hoping that they do go down that line of thought, as it could make an interesting evolution of a character that is originally just loud, annoying, and design wise all over the place... ... Or they could pull a Kamen Rider Wizard and throw all of it out the window leading us wishing we could get our 48 weeks of watching this back... Still loving the monster designs though.

And they just send Star away after he fails? Hopefully they have a good excuse to bring him back, rather than just 'lol still here actually'.
