Shougeki Gouraigan 03 released

Post by takenoko »

Wiki: http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Shougeki_Gouraigan_03

I dunno. I don't recall there being any nudity this week, but the humor seemed infinitely more juvenile. I don't really know what they're doing with some of the stuff (Like with the secretary lady), and kind of wish those elements would go away since they distract from the rest of the story.

Ryouko's secret identity was kind of funny, I guess. Kind of a spoof on all the characters that wear sailor uniforms in Japanese stories.

I had the same reaction as Gou when the fat guy was dancing, so I guess it's nice that he acted it out for me.

I wonder if they're going to battle the bad guys in the arena too. If so, I think it might be a bit limiting. I'm sure it's easier to film, but I like how Garo is able to fight wherever he is just by summoning his suit.

So I guess Urataros has joined the gang. Good for them.

Next week preview

Alright, the lady monster. Hope she's interesting.


Looks like this episode was directed by Era Kei 江良圭 who was an assistant producer from Dog Sugar for Rescue Force, the writer and director of the Rescue Force movie, and a director for Kanon 20-21. Huh

This week's was just odd. No outright nudity, yeah, but woah were there a lot of boob shots. I kinda dislike how we're getting some extra characters that probably only are there for the tits. Surfer Jane isn't likely to be integral to the plot.

Uhh... what was that secretary doing under his desk?

Just started watching this... It does seem to be quite the odd duck of a show. I do like that they've gone with traditional suits, but added nicely to them by computer animating the faces. Did anyone else notice Zoicite playing piano in the background while the Baddie did the Chairmen in?

I enjoyed the dance-fight battle. That's pretty cool. They should do those in arcades here! I also liked mini-horror-kun.
Too bad Kageribito Urataros didn't ask to reel someone in.

Is that Mika Hijii in the preview?!

Game maniac and cosplay frenzy are two things that pop into mind. They even have a kuroko to help with clothes changing as a nod to Shinkenger. It would be hilarious if they use the curtain as well and she got tangled in it

I'm enjoying Gou & co's storyline, but everything involving Mr President is just weird as hell

Totally forgot to mention, what the fuck was up with secretary lady touching herself while that dude was getting eaten by a ravenous horror-beast? You need to get your rocks off someway else.

This episode was pretty good, Geki is cool, but Rai is still my favorite still. The bad guy (cant remember his name right now) is just kinda wierd. And his secretary.......Yeah she's hot but she seems to get off on some of the weirdest stuff, but hey I've seen wierder stuff people get wet over, so I'm not one to complain.

I like the dislike the secretary lady. I have no idea where they are going with this. I dont know what's the benefit of playing a character who always seems aroused. Lol..I did like the dance battle in the arena. The lighting was pretty cool so visually, it looked pretty neat and it's something you dont' see often. It looks like all the battles will take place in that weird CGI background though. Lastly, I did get the feeling of Urataros with the new guy. Glad I wasn't the only one.

How many part-timers can a shop like that afford to pay?

While the girl is supposed to be the central character, I'm not getting a feel for who she is; maybe she's just supposed to be an audience avatar in the story.

I liked this episode a lot more than the earlier two. I'd rather more goofy humor than the T&A we had before, though the boob shots I could skip too.

The DDR/Just Dance video game fusion was pretty fun.
I liked the reference to the classic manga & anime character Dr. Black Jack.

The secretary lady IS weird but clearly her thing is that power is her fetish. She used to work for a powerful executive, now she's working for the emperor of evil and he has supernatural minions and she's literally orgasming in place from seeing it in action. Ick.

I feel like I might need to start drinking to really enjoy this series though.

A remixed instrumental version is used for the dance fights, can be heard particularly clearly near the end before their battlefield fight.
