Alt title: Local Prince Makes Sophie's Choice of Whether to Kill His Father the King or Not

After much deliberation, Prince Hot Tamale of Cayenne made the agonizing decision to NOT kill his own father. In his own words...

"Y'know, being king would be sweet, and it'd be totally justified since he's a bad guy in a Darth Vader suit. But then I was thinking that some people might react negatively if I kill my own father. So I just won't. So simple!"

His friends comment, "I don't know why he was so eager to kill his dad. It's not like saving his dad and saving the galaxy are mutually exclusive things. The bad guy literally said Aslan is just a mind controlled puppet. I bet he'll return to normal once we kill Don Armage anyway."

His female companions chimed in, "Don't ask me, I'm just a girl. Tee hee!"

Is Tsurugi having a heart attack? Regardless, he's clearly a goner.

So with only 6-7 episodes left in the series, a couple of burning questions: Why does Earth have so much Planesium that it was necessary to spend most of the freaking series there? How are they going to pad out this high-stakes infiltration into 6 episodes? Is Garou like a reverse furry or something? Why THE FUCK DOES RAPTOR GET SHIT SCREEN TIME GODDAMN I THINK SHE PROBABLY HAD LIKE 15 MINUTES ONSCREEN TRANSFORMED IN THIS SERIES. Why is there a "holy night" in space, is there a space jesus or something? Can we get a refund on the Red this series? Can we get Melon Prince back onscreen please?

Watching this episode made me come to the realization that Garou isn't in love with Lucky. He's just Lucky's dog.

Except they keep trying to force that Lucky and Garou are really close, but they've never really had any moments acting buddy buddy. In fact, most of the scenes of Garou and Lucky are Garou claiming they are really close.

So Lucky's space ninja masked father is not himself so he resolves to not kill him. Ok

so will Tsurugi die? What's the deal with him and the Don? find out in the remaining episodes

I have nothing else to say other than that it's ok

Never felt like this series from the writer is announced from last year. Mouri Nobuhiro who usually write for Kamen Rider to be put on main writer for Sentai. Although he is sub-writer for Go-Busters and Ninninger, but it's not enough to understand what is Super Sentai and write whole series, especially with 9 people at beginning. Kyuranger has 9 core membesr (later is 12), but the main focus is Lucky (with bad personality look like Takaharu in Ninninger), Stinger, Tsurugi, Naga Rei. The rest of cast do not has spotlight at all.

I don't know. I got a bad feeling about that too. Well, I hope he don't. It's quite rare to see 12 member fighting together until the last episode.

Trust me, even I don't like the fact of one or more member, regardless main, sixth or extra ranger/hero to die by the end of the series. I even freak out when Champ was obliterated by Scorpio, if not Stinger. Either way, I never like the idea of an ally dying through any methods other than getting old.

I admit that is true. Take ToQger/Shinkenger for example:
1. Six members in total including sixth ranger.
2. Each had at least two episodes focused on them. Simultaneously, those episodes also describes everyone’s development as well as closing the gap between other members and deepens their friendship.
More or less, I think that’s the words and sentences to describe the how good the series that has six members, excluding the extra ranger since their screentime is the shortest.
Perhaps, just to be honest, this series should end in more than 50 episodes, like Gorenger/Goranger. But I guess that’s not possible now, people will complain about why extending to two years or such. Well, I would like to complain why Gorenger/Goranger had 80+ episodes despite not having any extra ranger or sixth ranger.

ToQger/Shinkenger both had much of the same staff (head writer in Yasuko Kobayashi and a head producer in Takaaki Utsunomiya) so, of course, they'll feel similar. :lol:

Checking TvN wiki, it seems Mouri was a sub-writer on OOO, Go-Busters, Gaim (3 of which were co-written with Gen Urobuchi ), Drive, Ninninger, and Ghost. Now being sub-writer doesn't mean automatically bad (since writers like Toshiki Inoue and Naruhisa Arakawa put out good shows despite starting as such) but Mouri's an example of it not working. At least, I feel that nothing in this show has felt anything beyond playing it safe and it's a shame. No one from Mouri to the Producers to the higher-ups seemingly wants to do anything memorable with this show.
Well, I would like to complain why Gorenger/Goranger had 80+ episodes despite not having any extra ranger or sixth ranger.
Same reason First Rider had 98 episodes, times were different back in the 70s and they weren't restricted to a strict toy schedule like the shows have nowadays. They still had toys, true, but there were no reruns or physical media for it so they just wanted to make a good show every week.
If that moment, if that place was something you thought was special to you, the past doesn't have to be memories that simply drift away. Instead of the pain of being hurt, everything about that precious scene will become a light and give birth to zero.

Giant robots! :D

Around this time every year they do a robo-heavy episode. And honest to goodness, it's one of my favorite episodes of the year. I do wish the fights were ea bit more hand-to-hand (Go-Busters, I miss you!), but it's always a hoot to see all the robos out kicking ass.

Side note: it looks like they forgot to turn on Raptor's eyes at 19:24. In fact I can't actually think of any moment until now where her eyes weren't on. So I believe this is our first look at the suit like this

He's clearly going to go the way of Obi-Wan here soon.:(

I've honestly been scratching my head at that. It's not like the character is going long stretches without lines, so it's not a matter of voice actress availability, which would be my first culprit. The series does focus more on its human characters, and for good reason. But even among the suits, she gets the short end of the stick. I just don't get it.
Why is there a "holy night" in space, is there a space jesus or something?
Yes: Tsurugi. I mean just look at him. :P
Can we get a refund on the Red this series?
No refunds. But you can get a coupon for a free manicure once the show is over.:o

In hindsight it's obvious. But I never realized that until now. He really is Lucky's dog: stupid and loyal. And he gets all the character development of one as well...

Oh woah I didn't catch that. If you pause at the right moment in the HD version you can barely make out the outline of an eye behind the goggles. Makes you wonder how the actress sees normally with that bright light in her eyes all the time.

I just read a tumblr post comparing Chewbacca to Han's dog. Is that why Garou is here? Just to be an off brand Chewbacca???

A very good question. The head isn't large enough that it's off-center. But there are some slits right below the glasses on each side, which we can sometimes see when Raptor is shot from below. I suspect that's how the suit actress sees out.

(Actually, do we know who Raptor's suit actress is? Toei has a tendency to use men, so I'm wondering if it's even an actress)
