KR Saber Spin-Off: Kenzan released

Title: AKA Saber Other Side of Chapter 9

Man, can we get some naming consistency... But still, going with the numbered naming for the files since that makes it sort more nicely? Hopefully not too confusing?

As Luna points out, this looks like cutting room floor footage. If cutting swafts of pointless sub plots is making the main episodes stronger, great. But releasing it anyway feels like it undermines that. Give me and my timer a break to work on more interesting stuff, Saber

I think it's kind of cool that it hints that Kenzan's lust for strength will eventually make him fall to the dark side. But he's such a bland one-note character that almost any nuance feels like drops of water in a character desert

I mean, I'm all for releasing cut footage but slapping the label "spin-off" on it is kinda disingenuous. Plus, if the whole "fall to the dark side" bit does actually come through in the show, this is going to be pretty important buildup. Seems a bit cash-grabby to put that in a paid service that frankly most of the kids aren't gonna watch anyway.

Let's be honest, Kenzan is going to have the character arc of a falling anvil. Really don't expect the temptation of evil thing to amount to anything

He's easily the least likeable character in the show. Which is saying a lot.

I really do think Ren's annoying. The show would do just fine without him. It's like they put him there to add to the humor of the show, which is still unnecessary.
And is this spin-off on TTFC? Is that what Lunagel meant by paid service?
I've been watching Ryusoulger for the first time lately. And I could be wrong but I feel that Kenzan's kinda similar to how Towa was earlier in the season, wanting to be stronger. Also, they're both like the youngest (age-wise, I don't know if Ren's the youngest for sure. I just assumed because he looks really young.) members of the team. Kenzan's peppy attitude also reminds me of Koh. It's like Ren's traits were taken from both these guys. I like both Towa and Koh a lot, but I don't like Kenzan.

It's streamed exclusively through TELASA, so we had to get a demo or something for the first few weeks

We used our free trial for something else, though I don't remember what. Had to pay for two months of this, sadly.
