Alt Title: Nostalgia, in my Toei?!

I thought it was fine. Glad to see a bunch of nostalgic faces, and we even got a few character moments between them. Have to admit, they brought back a lot more guys than I thought they would.

Didn't really feel like they did too much with the main stars of this special outside of JyuohEagle. Even Marvelous, who should be fun as hell, is just in the corner sulking. Also, JyuohEagle looks like he got old or something. At least his acting seems better here? (not that his character was all that interesting to begin with though...)

Not sure what's going on with Gaisorg. I can't help but notice he has a lightning bolt down his chest like the Ryusoulger uniforms. (Oh hey, we got even Ryusoulgers here, that's annoying since we don't have anything set up for them yet, from a fansubbing standpoint). I thought for sure Luka would be underneath, but the preview doesn't look like it's her.

I like the dumb team names.

Okay start. Only three more to go!

Can you name the teams and their members?

What were they thinking with that intro sequence? Do they want people to have seizures?

Does anyone else think Rita might turn out to be a villain? The name itself is reminds me of Rita Repulsa but I'm not sure the writers are willing to dig that deep for a reference. On the other hand, this is all taking place on planet Nemesis. That is certainly a sinister name for a location. Rita's clothes clearly reference a genie and genies from mythology are known for twisting the wishes they grant so that they backfire.

If it doesn't turn out that Rita is gathering energy for something super evil, I'll eat my hat.

The telegram has been translated, thanks to a language found in Dekaranger.

Yamato's diplomacy is good. Using Speech to calm Keiichirou down is awesome.

Yosuke and Eiji's a great duo.

Alright episode.
So... Zangetsu VS Sirfetch'd Death Battle when??

So I'm trying to fill out the chart. But man, they chose a shitty color of red that gets super blurry when out of focus for the kanji. If anyone can figure out some of the ones I missed or fill in the blanks, I'd appreciate it.

If you think about it, planet Nemesis was where Bandora was, in the dumpster in the first episode of Zyuranger.

Plus there isn't a single dino team in the tournament.

And the the new dino team, the Ryusoulgers are looking for something.

If this has absolutely nothing to do with Bandora, I will eat my entire wardrobe.

Did the Ryusoulgers eat all the previous dinosaur warriors to take their strength?

Ah, that's a big help.

I wonder where they got the pic of the characters though.

It's definitely interesting to see that there are zero dinosaur members. But what's even more interesting to me are the teams where there's only one representative.

I think Toei is so desperate that they need to hype Ryusoulger for FOUR STRAIGHT WEEKS before the fucking series even starts.

now, I know it's all the "end of an era" hype which is legendary in Japan, so there's no getting around it, but....

fuck, every damn trope is gonna be thrown out in this series. I hope it proves to be interesting. so far, the "show half of too many fights" is not interesting.

I agree on the Bandora/Rita angle. I'll be surprised if not.

ok, Heisei started with TurboRanger.... hm. no real ideas there.

$5 says Daisorg ends up being RyuSoul6 eventually.... or at least is part of the show. no way they make a suit like that and NOT use it in the regular show.

I went into this expecting a lot of flashy action, a lot of cameos, and sneak peaks of the next sentai. And it looks like we'll be getting plenty of all that for the next four weeks. Bonus is that there's even a bit of an actual story to all of it!

Most of the fights really are a very nice spectacle piece, with lots of impressive wire works and satisfying effects. Also maybe I enjoyed watching Sosuke beating up Takaharu a little bit too much! Who knew a race car driver had the advantage over a trained ninja?

All the returning actors, even the brief ones, do a good job of milking an appropriate amount of nostalgia (assuming you liked them). It is strange for me to say it was nice to see Keichiro again even though his show only ended last week? And I'm sure Marvelous will get a chance to be amazing again after he moves past his hunger for revenge.

Gaisorg is clearly going to be a recurring character in Ryusoulger, or at least I'd be shocked if he wasn't. Either way, I'm still curious what he's doing here. Mind you, his 'I want to fight the strongest' could be all there is to it since obviously they wouldn't go too deep into his motivations in this special as opposed to his actual show, but maybe they'll surprise us.

Also I want to also believe Rita is evil, but Sentai tends to play those kind of characters really straight. Also after the flat-out false advertising from Kogure in the last series, I don't want to get my hopes up too high.

I got more enjoyment and nostalgia from that than I've gotten from 22 episodes of Zi-O. Written by the Gokaiger/Akibaranger head writer and directed by Sakamoto, it was clearly in safe hands. I can't wait for the next 3 episodes. Seriously, Yamato remembering Marvelous, Stinger still being the commander, things like that. Little things that show they care, which Zi-O can't be bothered with. Also, I've seen somewhere that apparently Kagura's now canonically 15 and in middle school, which is funny to be because that's how old Ai was when ToQger began filming. Part of me wishes they'd now written her like a sassy teenager, but I'm glad she's still fundamentally Kagura.

This episode has confirmed to me that Toei is only capable of giving a shit about things like this when it comes to Sentai. Now to go and watch Zi-O 23 and be reminded of this fact even more.

Also the whole thing with her using magic which they drew attention to. I've seen speculation that she's Lamie and Grifforzer's baby from the Zyuranger finale.
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.
