Alt Title: Oui, oui? More like, non, non!

Sorry, I hate to be shitting on the new show, but this episode was tediously bad for me. I thought green and black having a hard edge might be a good balance for the trio, but green is arrogant, and they're not likeable.

I know we were supposed to be impressed with red's childlike innocent of declaring that he'll save both the single life as well as the many lives in the no-win scenario, but eh.

The action didn't even save it this time. The CGI looked real ugly.

LOL, the way the monster "caught" the sword was so goofy looking.

That's a bad gattai sequence. I literally cannot tell you what part the robotic knights provide in the fusion. Also weapon arms are boring :(

They don't even share a cockpit when combined?

Sorry, but Ui and Asuna aren't developed enough to make me care about them or feel anything during their moment. I really hope this series finds its footing soon.

WHAT THE FUCK


Can we just talk about this seriously for a bit? I mean yes you have the sacrifice yourself for others plotline quite a lot in many forms of media but LITERAL SUICIDE ATTEMPT IN A CHILDREN'S SHOW. Christ almighty, who okayed this? This is a horrible message to send to children, especially in a country where the leading cause of death among elementary and middle schoolers is suicide. I can't even talk about the rest of the episode cause I'm just so boggled that they actually went there.

This... felt different to last week.

I appreciate the effort to try and do something different with Ui, but Luna is right on this one. I doubt even sentai in the 70s/early 80s had anything analogous.

Asuna is great. Favourite character so far. Not very sure about what Melto was going about - it seemed to contrast with what he showed us previously - but it wasn't bad and I liked the moment with Triken near the end.

Green/black are driven by utilitarianism and I enjoyed how scornful of the others they were. Hopefully it will take a while for them to work together. I wish turning into stone was resolved in another way. The Minusaur costume looked badass and the Gorgon (Magiranger) vibes were there.

KishiryuOh Three Knights is cool.

Definitely an improvement from last week.

As Luna pointed out, that's probably Matsumoto Hiroya narrating the Ryusoulger CD CM. Hmmm, always an interesting portent to things when that guy is on the Toei lot.

*Whispers* Might wanna have another look at this line.

3 episodes in, this show continues to not thrill me at all. It's not even bad, I'm just completely neutral on it.
Seen:
Sentai: Zyuranger-Gingaman, Abaranger onwards.
Kamen Rider: All the Heisei series.
Precure: DokiDoki-Go Pri and the first few episodes of Mahoutsukai and Futari.

Currently watching: Kyukyu Sentai GoGoV.

Is there some sort of deep seated misogyny going on here? Why does pink's strong form of armor include a ball and chain?

I think it was about 12 episodes too early to pull out the "we're friends" trope with Pink and Lala. Does pink think she is Hino from OOOs?

My feelings exactly. As much as i enjoyed kyouryuugreen being a collosal dickbag, i can't get past the "suicide as a solution" plot point 3 episodes in to this show for small children. ESPECIALLY when they specifically showed and named Aokigahara in episode 1.... What is the point they are trying to make here and is a children's show really the platform to make that point?

You know what would have been a better way to do this episode? Maybe twenty episodes in where we actually know more about Ui and Asuna... maybe after 18 or so Minusaurs that were dispatched easily by the rangers they finally meet one that they can't beat because of the stone effect. Black and Green mention that they could kill the host... and Ui overhears what she wasn't meant to. Also... the gattai is bad... I like the lego aspect and we possibly have more base combinations than what Kyouryu-oh had. Still... I'm not feeling this series.

They just cramped three possible plot points into one episode, and how they possible went away with something like this, I don’t know.

1. The interaction between Blue and his robot was introduced and solved before we can actually care about what the hell was happening. It could be a set up for early character’s background but it wasn’t, or somehow brings something to the table but again it wasn’t, so why even bother to put that in this episode.

2. Up to this episode, they haven’t brought something that lead us invested in the character. The story of Ui and her father felt really weak because we barely know them. The dumbest thing is for Pink to claim they are friend but the flashback they use to acknowledge it was when Red said they were friend (which is also dumb imo lol), in the same episode. Plus, everyone already mentioned how sensitive suicide is in Japan, and I just want to add that Toei used that on a character that wasn’t properly presented, kind of low quality writing imo.

3. Green and Black’s introduction. I kind of wished they only focused on this or at least for next episode and give this episode to Blue and his robot instead. They were introduced as jerks, I am okay with that, but I imagine if the same scene happen about in episode 8 or 9, after we get more screen time and early information of them and Ui, it would be a much stronger moment imo, but obviously that was not felt by me in this episode.

I hope it would get better, I know Toei could, and they’ve done better. It’s the 4th Dinosaur theme Rangers and the previous three are really great, personally I want this to be also great.

I am with you guys on this too. Trying to commit suicide is not something should be shown in Super Sentai series, where children are the major audiences. I really lose the interest to write what is good about this episode too. Sacrificing yourself for the sake of others is noble but doing it through suicide is more INSANE than asking someone to kill you. I would had it fine if Ui ask Asuna to kill her but trying to commit suicide is more scary. Oh and just wish Asuna had slapped Ui for her foolishness that is not even sensible.

That is really reaching? I think it's pretty cool that at least the lone female ranger gets a big, forceful weapon as opposed to a dainty rapier or something.
