Alt title: Lucky the Magnanimous Shares His Toys

You know, that was a decent episode for something that I was worried was going to be a clip show. Spada and Hame get to borrow some of Lucky's upgrades, Lucky didn't do anything annoying, the plot (such as it is) was moved forward.

Yeah, they recycled the Death Worm, but we also get to see all the powered up Rangers, and even a few special moves by KyuuRen-Oh. So the money saved went to a good place.

Alright, let's talk Hame's power up. I'm glad they did it, but couldn't they have spent even 5 seconds to show Lucky tossing her the KyuuTama? Some introduction to this would have been nice. Also, the choreography looks bad to me after she goes into moon mode. It almost felt like someone just went "Here Hame's actress, if you want more to do, dress up and act sexy".

Poor Hame and Raptor. I hope next year's ladies are treated better.

THank god, someone remembered to check that Jirou is still alive
Edit: Oh yeah, Cuervo is Don Armage. Aren't you shocked that Tsurugi's "good friend" is the last boss? What a twist. The emotions are palpable.

It's just another random Sailor Moon reference, though I agree the choreography execution is bad.

With due respect to his personal situation, Daisuke Namikawa has been separated from playing young worrywarts and playing villians left and right. I wouldn't be surprised that his current villain role in the new GARO anime may have given the production crew this idea.

Nighttime Hame-chan, no. Just, no. Can we have a ex-JAV actress be in a toku production again, please??

Ugh, cringe-worthy Sailor Moon reference. I thought we already had on of those with Raptor earlier (WHO AGAIN GETS SHAFTED THIS EPISODE)

Obvious twist is obvious. Still unimpressed with Don Armage and for fuck's sake will someone please tell us WHY the Earth has this massive amount of Planesium?

Putting that aside, Tsurugi might be a goner T.T. (Come on, I can accept if he loses his powers but not death)

Man, despite his arrogance at first, I actually liked him for the joke that he wore black and red feather boa around his neck during the summer movie ending, Kyuulette Chance routine and disguises. There's even one in the previous episode.

But for real, why didn't they put on these power-ups before for the rest of the members and their roll calls too? Obviously I can see that non-human KyuuRanger (Raptor, Balance, Garou, Champ and Shou) did not have any power up version of themselves. Well, Shou might have an upgrade from an old ToQger suit but I would not count on that. Same goes for Balance and Garou have side effects from the lights of Hikari KyuuTama.

T.T

So Cuervo was Don Armage all along, who didn't see that coming. Oh wait the don is just using his body or is he just given the power of the Don. No matter the reason I say ok I see it coming.

and neat we remember we have the powerups, something I should have expected at this point. Why does Spada get Pega-san again and where were you Pega-san. We haven't seen you since the episode you debut in. now why must we have Hammie be suggestive, damn you sailor moon reference.

Now can we finish this series already, I think the series faulted long enough

So Don Armage's spirit can possess bodies, which is the secret to his immortality?

Except they went back in time and killed him, and then killed him again a few episodes ago, so shouldn't Cuervo's body be destroyed already?

Shhh, stop thinking about it. Just let your brain die it's slow, prolonged death and hope it comes back to life in time for Lupin VS Pat

I'm decently impressed that this wasn't a complete clip show.

I'm even somewhat impressed that they dedicated an episode to power-ups. Especially since they let people besides Lucky use some of them.

But did they have to bring back Pegasus?! That stupid thing wasted an early season episode, and now a good chunk of a late season episode as well. And the stunt choreography with Pegasus is always so bad.:(

It wasn't a terrible reference. Kind of forced, though. And then it went on for one joke too long with that spanking joke. :?

The emotions may be palpable, but sadly the Emperor isn't Palpatine.:( :P

It's been foreshadowed to death, so no one here is surprised. At the same time at least it wasn't dropped on us with no warning. The problem is that the way it has been setup isn't very compelling. While a character without a backstory is lame, the series also hasn't done a good job of explaining why Cuervo being the Don is important. Sure, the fact that it's Tsurugi's former ally is a twist, but it's not a very satisfying twist since it's just a body-snatching case.

Didn't they also mention again this episode that Don Armage can possess multiple bodies at the same time? Of course, it reeks of plot convenience, but it is not too far fetched that Cuervo is currently his main/last body.

Before the season started, wasn't it said that they intended the show really intended to break the regular Sentai mold? In what way has it actually done so?
