Did shit just get real????

I like how the Naaga plot isn't getting resolved too quickly. And surprised Akyanbaa is still around.

The camerawork during the Balance vs. Naaga fight on the steps was pretty good too.

We decided to use Full Bottle instead of Furu Bottle for now on because there's an Empty Bottle.

So I have to say, after so many episodes of Kyuuranger disappointed me in some way or another, this is the first episode I can wholeheartedly give a 5 to. Important things happened, there were plot twists, and the Naaga problem wasn't quickly resolved in one episode. All of a sudden, this show has a real plot with real stakes! Hell, this episode even kept Lucky's annoying tendencies to a minimum.

I really can't say enough nice about the first fight. I don't know why every fight can't be like that, but whoever the action director was for this episode, they were on top of their game. They made perfect use of the first-person camera, and the faked long take with the individual Rangers transforming was excellently done. Combined with the actual proper(!) use of shaky cam, and it sells the fact that this is a hectic battle, and not a prearranged duel between sides where everyone gets a chance to first setup (as Sentai usually is). And how Nagaa treated Balance was genuinely heartbreaking.

What I wasn't in any way expecting (and perhaps I should have) was that we'd find out that Balance had been a bad influence on Naaga. While it's kind of obvious that thieving was more Balance's thing, taking advantage of Naaga to escape actually adds a wrinkle of complexity to this. Naaga wanted to know more about emotions, and to Balance's credit, he held up his end of the bargain in as much as he did what he could. But Balance is also indirectly responsible for the current situation, both by getting Naaga into this mess and by fueling his desire to learn more about his emotions (which we've now learned is a bad thing). It's complexity!

The back-half of the episode was equally good. Again we get some nice shots (especially rolling down the steps, of all things) and a good fight. Lucky even makes tactical use of his power-ups for once. Otherwise, it's how that fight ended that was the most interesting part. Beating your teammate senseless to bring them back to their senses is a Sentai staple. So Balance holding Naaga down while they both on the receiving end of a finishing attack was dramatic enough. But then, defying the tropes, it failed, and now Naaga is angrier than ever. It again subverts expectations, but it also means that this isn't a problem that was solved in one episode. Which is fine by me, because I'll take a dozen more episodes like this, please! Heck, this episode was so good that I can even overlook the fact that they're once again abusing the Gemini Kyuutama. (Also, stupid heroes, why would you believe the villain is telling you the truth about how to fix Naaga?! :P )

On a side note, I'm really digging the Dark Seiza Blaster's jingles all being in a minor key. Yeah, it's a very basic trick, but it works well here. Dark Change really does sound sinister. I do wish however that the Silver suit was more dramatically altered, especially as this is going on for a few episodes. Throwing some drapes and some vinyl stickers on it is okay, but doing a new chest-piece - say, making the eye a permanent fixture and adding some purple stripes - would have looked all the better. Also creepy: Naaga's actor in drag to play the women of his species, especially when there's a female voice over as well.:o

Oh, and I can't forget the B-plot with the other half of the team. So Don Armage really was destroyed in the past; Tsurugi didn't fail. But more importantly, we finally get to meet Orion, whom the series has been teasing for a while. Quick show of hands: was anyone here not expecting Orion to be evil? :P

Finally, what's that Stinger movie ad I saw in the CMs? Has this been announced before? I don't recall seeing it (though I do recall the High School Wars), but I'd think a spin-off movie would get a little more fare? Sentai has never had a spin-off movie released during the series proper like this before, so I'm very curious as to what's going on.

Another thing:

This arc will focus Balance and Naaga

About Tsurugi's team in the past, may be the ORION-Gou is damage due to the planet's destruction and crashes through Earth.
And a mysterious man saved them (I think he's Orion just like Eris said).

SpoilerShow
About next episode, Lucky would go to the past thanks to the Tokei Kyuutama, my thoughts are Lucky will defeat Akyanbaa in the past in other words it will change the future and save Naaga. Time will tell for that.

It sounds like you're well-prepared for the eventualy AkaRed V-Cinema where he's the villain. :wink:

It's the Episode of Stinger V-Cinema that was previously announced a few months back.

I like this episode and the direction it went with the story and that the current conflict didn't get resolved so easily.

Oh, and a random piece of trivia. Kukulger is based on the Mayan snake god of storms, though I wonder if he will have any storm powers.

so i guess lucky can control who gets the Taiyo mode buff now since Naga didnt get powered up too.
and none of the other rangers get the buff? i was sure in saint seiya scorpion was a gold cloth and the gold cloths were the closest to the sun hence the gold color. so i would think .... but why be consistant ... TOEI ...

in the previous last week i felt they were being cheap having Naga dress in drag to be a woman from his home world but no ... everyone has the same face .... neat?

If they can use the Gemini power to make duplicate voyagers, why can't they make unlimited copies to crush Jark Matter?

Balance still proving he is best boy. And they didn't forget about Sun powering him up like they did with some other things (cough Pegasus cough).
