I think it's more of a fact that they didn't need it - they're so strong now in their basic form as it is. After all, they took Long down originally without Kageki.

To be brutally honest, this felt more like a Gekiranger movie with some Go-Onger thrown in than the other way around.

*shakes head*

Nope. The first time they formed G12, Sousuke winces in pain, because Yogostein had drilled that thing into his heart. Immediately after forming G12 for the first time, Sousuke then dies.

After that, is when Yogostein puts on the wind-up key from Holon-whatever-sama and steals the Change Souls. They get them back and form G12 a second time, knocking Yogostein back down to normal size. Then, Sousuke revives, and has a one-on-one duel with Yogostein, killing him.

There isn't any point between G12's first appearance and Yogostein's death where this movie could've possibly taken place in the series, thus necessitating it being alternate universe.

They didn't have full names. Those are their titles when they transform. Kurojishi Lio means Black Lion Lio

Isn't that usually the case with the VS series? The older team drives the plot while newer team undergoes some character growth.

Sorry Gunpei, I blinked. That's just the kind of person I am. :lol:

-Nice nunchuck duel
-Time delay hits rule
-Ken's goatee still looks fresh
-"That" damn curry shop again. Aren't there more places to eat in Japan?!
-8:04, "Jikuu Sentai Decaderanger"
-8:12, Hanto is alllll about business
-8:20 Sekuhara!
-"KameKameHa" :lol:
-"Engine Ken", sugee.
-Long seems a bit more, "flamboyant" this time around.
-39:07-39:09, they got rushed
-Loved the music at the end

That movie was very involved. I enjoyed it. I was expecting a "Janken/Jyuken" joke, but I'm satisfied.

I felt the same way. The moment when Rio departs (again) just outshines the other defining moments. Its kinda emotionally overwhelming, to be honest, than when the go-ongers got their whatever-ken :lol:

I felt the previous VS movie focused more on the gekirangers as well. Though I just felt that the gekirangers made their presence felt more than the other sentai teams in both movies.

BTW, Gekiranger is my first super sentai since Jetman n loved it. I heard Magirangers was good too, though for now Gekirangers is the most awesome one for me. So my opinions above might be a little biased :lol:

I think the VS tend to be a little more bias for the previous year, simply because it's the real last thing those guys will do together as a group, so it always feels like their goodbye special

I mean, we have to look at last year's VS plot compared to this year's.

SpoilerShow
I think one of the main reasons it feels more Geki than any of the others are the villians. Boukenger's villains, like Go-On's villians, felt more like support characters while the main villain of VS is someone more Gekiranger-related. Thus, even though it is a teamup, it feels like it has more to do with the Gekirangers than the other team, and this is in BOTH cases.


This is probably one of the reasons why I feel the way I do about it. I mean, what I want to know is if Geki was more popular in Japan compared to the other recent SS teams.

I thought it was common knowledge that Geki had some of the lowest ratings

Magi average 7.74%

Bouken average 6.71%
http://www10.atwiki.jp/shichouseiko/pages/12.html

Geki average 5.16%
http://www10.atwiki.jp/shichouseiko/pages/13.html

Go-On average 5.06%
http://www10.atwiki.jp/shichouseiko/pages/14.html

Shinken average for first 17 episodes 6.13%

Despite the ratings, Go-On probably made more money than Geki if Toei felt this VS movie was worth making into a theatrical release.

Nah, Toei just makes super forms every other season. Apparently saves money on new costumes.

I thought it was okay but I think that this movie really could of been much better in my opinion. I mean it was good just I don't really like Go-Ongers all that much and I really wanted to see the super forms.
