Alt Title: Is that a Ryusoul in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

I thought it was alright. Nothing terribly great, but it is fun to see Sawai Miyuu back. At least Ui has something to do this time around.

Pretty fun to see Canalo hit on Master Pink.

More power ups for just red and gold, typical. If you're going to have four different chest pieces, maybe spread the love around? It's kind of dumb that the darkness soul was just in Canalo's pocket and all it took for him to use it was Pink taking it out. Felt like that could have played out a million ways that would have been more interesting.

Since we're back on our bullshit this week, I'm gonna point out the Sailor Moon references in tribute to our guest star. The most obvious is the red rose/giant moon scene at about 11:35, but if you're really paying attention, you'll notice that the bridge Asuna walks across at about 1:33~ is the same one in the live action PGSM that Usagi often uses to get to school and where Luna first drops down in episode 1.

I don't usually do cultural TL notes unless something's pretty obscure, but kinda felt it was necessary to explain that most, if not all department stores in Japan have supermarkets (or multiple specialty food stores ranging from sweets to meats to bentos) in the basement. Depending on how swanky the department store is, the supermarket can be your regular run-of-the-mill thing, or really expensive delicacies or imported food. My local swanky department has wagyu beef that goes upwards of 5000 yen for 100 grams. Yes, upwards.

Can you tell tapioca tea is all the rage in Japan recently?

I read that boba tea was having an resurgence recently, but apparently it's been in Japan a while now?

But do they still keep all the porn for the comic book shops in the basement?

Did this series just introduce Kishiryuu that have power over life and death? Is Set Egyptian? How does Pink know him?

Really wish the writing were better. Pink was a fun addition to the episode, but overall necessity to the plot felt kind of superfluous.

I just hope by the time we have five or six of these armour power-ups, we'll get a big scene with each Ryusoulger utilising one. It's fine to me if Red or Gold are always the first one to use them, but now I'd like to see someone else use the fire or thunder ones.

Plot has me intrigued, and I am really curious as to how it'll continue and/or get wrapped up next week. I think we're at the point of the show where the characters and their personalities are very much locked in place, so I'm not expecting any sweeping developments from any of them, for better or for worse.

Neptune's new mecha formation isn't much, which isn't surprising since it's obvious both Shadow and Shine are meant to be put into one, but while it's on my mind... I wished KishryuNeptune could combine with the other four mechas, like combine with Pink and Blue, or Green and Black, to make his own version of Three Knights? That would have been cool and give more reasons for more of them to be in the mecha fights.

i wonder if the writers ever watched the episode once it's out and perhaps felt a bit of remorse and shame...

Kind of lacklustre to be honest. Nice to see Tankjoh back and how he seems nicer now. But why the heck do they only ever have one commander appear at once?

I figured that based on how every single toku girl at the moment loves posting pictures of it on Instagram. I've never had it. Isn't that the stuff that American kids' shows liked to make fun of as disgusting in the 2000s? Or is that just a weird childhood memory I have?
Seen:
Super Sentai: Zyuranger-Gingaman, Abaranger onwards.
Kamen Rider: All the Heisei/Reiwa series except Amazons and the American shows.
Precure: DokiDoki-Go Pri and the first few episodes of Mahoutsukai and Futari.

It's nice to finally have a big plot episode again. I don't know of this episode quite does enough on that subject, but at least the show is moving again (it's introduced plenty of new toys, but not a whole lot to its core story).

It's been clear since the start that they're going to keep finding reasons to bring back the masters, so it was only a matter of time until the story hit a plot device to bring back Master Pink. And I don't expect this will be the last time, either. Pretty much everything she does in this episode is just too damn convenient - she doesn't know how she came back, she knows about the power-up of the week, etc - however I will admit I got a good laugh out of Canalo hitting on her and actually kind of succeeding.:o

This episode's big problem is that it feels like there's a whole act missing from the middle. We go from Master Pink making out with Gold finding the RyuuSoul that Gold strangely has, and move right on to Gold suddenly using a new power-up and mecha. There's a lack of development/earning the upgrade here, which is always a bit jarring.

Tankjoh was also a nice return. Especially since he's the nicest to Creon. As strange as it is, it's enjoyable to see Creon have a good day.:lol:

And thanks for the basement explanation, Luna! That whole scene would have gone over my head otherwise.

That's been bugging me as well. This would have been a good episode for some of Wiseru's theatrics, e.g. being off-put by Tankjoh being back and stealing the spotlight.

My thoughts for this episode.

Yes, like everyone thought. Set (A person's name) is Ui's Dad, maybe someone's consciousness possessing Naohisa.We might learn that more next episode.

Oh my god, Canalo. You are in love with a corpse that came back to life rather than living woman? In any case, it is amusing that Master Pink of all people actually accepted to be courted. Makes me wonder why Canalo did not try to pick up on Asuna in the first place when he made his debut.

Toy perspective. Disappointing I would say, not for this episode but rather the next one and before when there are new upgrades and combinations AFTER Five Knights. Is this all Shirakura's P idea in applying this method for this year Sentai series? Leaving the other core rangers and having Red and Gold/Sixth ranger getting the spotlight for mecha fights? Obviously, there is too much "divide and conquer" or "divide and watch" strategy for almost all current episodes when it comes to mecha battles. The norm for Sentai that apply this are when it reaches episode 40+ as the fight is coming to an end and becomes desperate. Not to mention, Gigant Kishiryuu Oh and Kishiryuu Dime Volcano did not even involve the other core members. It is quite insulting though for this kind of display occurring too often in a Sentai series because that kind display is more fitting for Kamen Rider series, where only about 1 or 2 people were given special powers to fight for most of the time. But this is a Sentai series where at least the main characters are granted that power, have them all involve, not just the leader and sixth ranger even if not using all the core mechas. What kind of excuse is there for involving only red and gold? Small cockpits/No room available/other members not capable of handling the new Kishiryuu/Lack of trust? Come on.

How come Gachireus or like that did not come back? And how come Wizeru is still alive for more than 10 episodes while Tankjou had only 6?

So Master Green Black or Cyclone Joker is in that purple armour? Are we expecting a plot twist like Wolzard?

Once again, fart attack. Not a splendid idea.

Kyoryuger, Zyuohger, Kyuranger, LuPat... Power Up and new forms only for Red. In Ninninger, LuPat, the 6th ranger also have power up too. I think in Bandai's opinion, Red and 6th will attract kid to buy toy?

I am not referring to the power up on the red and 6th ranger. I meant when using the giant robots. Sure enough I can agree Red and 6th ranger promote the power up but they DON'T SELL any DX armour made of metal AND BATTLE SUITS, as in with the boots and helmet of any Super Sentai/Kamen Rider for children to wear on them, do they? Even for Kamen Rider, Bandai gets money from the belt and its collectives like Gaia Memories and such, not by selling the suits and armour for children. So my point here is, I am not complaining about who used the power on themselves to fight enemies before that have not become giant first. I am referring to when they used the power up on their robots to fight the giants. Kyoryuger might be true for Plezuon in its first time but the rest of the Sentai teams you mentioned still fight as a team with their new giant robot's combination, even for auxilliary combination. When it comes to Red using ultimate form, that is certainly an exception that only Red pilots the robot related to him alone.

FYI Dimevolcano ia considered an auxilliary Kishiryuu, not the ultimate Kishiryuu. Most Sentai series had all the core rangers present during the first time when they used the auxillary for robot combinations. But Ryusoulger does not follow the same way for Kishiryuu Oh Dimevolcano AND Gigant Kishiryuu Oh. That is what I am referring to. They are not utilising the whole team in the new robot combinations, which is something definitely not satisfying to watch because Sentai works as a team and for most episodes before approaching final battles, they are all present in the cockpit for new combinations and regular combinations. Well, of course work as a team does more than just doing it together but what we are seeing for Ryusoulgers when they pilot the robots are not so different than when we are seeing Zi-O and Geiz pilotting their Time Mazine, only themselves. I think takenoko already mentioned something about why only Red and Gold got involved in the Gigant Kishiryuu Oh instead of all 6 in that combination's debut episode?

We're calling him Set because we think he might be a reference to the Egyptian God, who had the power to bring back the dead.

Set was more of the god of chaos (even then that's a bit of an overstatement). He was a foil to Horus and only really got demonized in the later periods. None of the gods had any bringing the dead back to life powers though, once you were done and gone through the ridiculous number of ceremonies to get to the land of the dead, it was a bit silly to bring you back (also you might've been eaten by the crocodile Sobek)
