I'm on fire, but not in a good way.
So in a Kinji and little boy based episode, we've got at least 2-3 instances of Takaharu robbing the spotlight still. I don't get it. I'm seriously wracking my brain to think of a Sentai where the writer unduly sucked red's dick as much as they do in Ninninger.
Oh, the new commander is Sailor Moon's voice actress? Nice.
Long rant with more bitching about Takaharu. Don't read it if that bothers you, since I really go into it here:
Like even if this weren't a Sentai show where ostensibly teamwork is a main theme, this wouldn't work even as a Rider show. If the audience loves the side characters and hated the main character, that's just not going to work. You can't make the audience love the main character by giving him all the new toys while at the same time he's still spouting "I'm on fire" with that stupid gormless expression on his face in every episode.
It's pretty annoying to get so worked up over something like a kid's show, but I'm pretty sure even kid's don't like the way this show is written. The producers should really go in there and slap the writer on the hand each time he writes one of those catchphrases for Takaharu. It doesn't even bother me that Yakumo does it too, because he gets so little screen time that it doesn't become annoying.
