Aesop is all in public domain though. Peter Pan is not.

Apparently it's in public domain everywhere but the US, so it is fair game in Japan, I misspoke

I'll never complain about long belt announcements / introductions after this series.

My god, is the standard transformation belt talking bit ridiculously long compared to every KR that has come before it.

At least Gokai Silver's self introduction was done only once, and more of a gag, his belt didn't waste so much screen time.

Not a fan of the Assymetry of the Shoulder paldrons, way too assymetric for me still.

That, combined with the stock footage is really going to eat into the episode times when they start introducing more riders.

I actually tried using the ED song to the OP and it's pretty sweet.

Ha, that's pretty neat. Thanks for sharing!

It fits pretty well consideirng you didn't cut the footage to match the music deliberately

That was absolutely perfect! Can we start a poll to have an alternate HD download made for each episode with Hanadi Sensei's modified opening? I know I'd be more than happy to download the alternate version (just cut out the end credits, I skip them anyway for the preview) over the official funeral dirge version any day.

It's so crazy that the intro fits that well with the end theme, which makes me wonder if they originally meant this to be the opening and changed it last minute because the episodes were running too short. That would explain why we have a crappy Super Sentai end dance with an upbeat song that matches the choreography of the intro so closely while being left with a depressingly slow-tempo intro song that feels artificially stretched out to meet the required length.


Toei: Hey, these episodes are only 19 minutes long!
Director: Well what if we create an end dance? Little kids love end dances.
Toei: We don't have time to write a new end theme.
Director: That's okay, we can just use the intro music for the dance. We already shot a dance for fun using the theme.
Toei: But what about the intro?
Director: Well... There WAS this other song we had tried to come up with, but it was too short. Maybe if we stretch it out and slow it down...
Toei: DO IT! Or we'll have to have FIVE minutes of Tassel every episode. One of our board already threw himself out the window during the early screening of Tassel's first monologue. We're just lucky he landed in a dumpster...
Fave series so far
KR: *brain explodes*
SS: probably GoRanger or ToQGer
UM: Nexus
Other Toku: (undecided, possibly the Shinigami no Ballad live action)

Least fave so far
KR: Drive
SS: Maskman
UM: (like all so far)
Other Toku: (undecided)

Haha.. I'm quite flattered that you guys even want to have the OP I made to replace the actual OP! XDD
It's just something I do in my personal time whenever I don't feel one's series' OP...www
Anyway, feel free to download or use it... I made a V3 that includes the names of casts and staffs that got deleted when cutting the video to fit the song :D And even crediting the ending song as ending theme even though it's used for the OP...wwww

You can't convince me that wasn't Song of Storms....because it totally was.

That's all I have to say about this episode.

Huh! This secondary is a breath of fresh air; I think he's the first one to not be somewhat rough around the edges for quite some time (particularly in contrast to Touma—it’s great that he loves justice, but that’s sort of the minimum requirement for main riders and there isn't much else to distinguish him from his predecessors imo). Overall, though, this feels like a far better first episode than the actual first episode.

Incidentally, I managed to get a good translation for most of the symbols thanks to the ad breaks; here are a couple of the giant books:

Yeah, I’m thinking so too. Especially with KirameiRed contracting the virus earlier, I think it’s for the best that they’re getting less filming time overall, but it's a shame some of it's at the show's expense.

There’s currently Dogengers, which is a nice 12-ep local hero-based show (definitely a comedy, but an oddly refreshing one compared to the more rote stuff in Toei’s shows).
Watching:
KR Gaim
U7X, Orb Origin Saga
Gekiranger

Watched:
KR W, Ghost - Build
Ultraman '66, Leo, Nexus, Mebius, Ginga, X, Orb, Geed - Z, Ribut(?)
Garo GS Shou

You don't need to translate, just turn the image 90 degrees clockwise, it's in stylized English.

Not that I noticed that until I turned my phone just now...
