Alt Title: Toraiger? No, Try harder!

Just kidding, I enjoyed this episode. It's a bit repetitive with Charahiko being the continued origin of conflict for situations, but I still like the mostly grounded nature of the drama.

Dealing with parents is pretty universal.

So Yoshida was the big thing in this episode. From the preview, I got the impression that Yoshida was the over-the-top otaku. That'd she'd be shameless in her fandom and just be making Nakamura uncomfortable with her butt stuff.

But Yoshida's pretty well rounded. I wasn't expecting her and Nakamura to mirror each other in their concerns and approaches to fandom.

What I didn't expect was Yoshida to be 10 years older than Nakamura. When she was talking about it being her last hero show, I for sure thought that her backstory was that she was dying or something dire. I didn't expect her to just be feeling like society has pressured her to outgrow toku. (By the way, I'd like to start a spinoff thread asking if people's experiences mirror Tokusatsu GAGAGA). And when she realizes that she's from a different generation from Nakamura, that shock was pretty good too. (Yoshida's actress looks great for 31 btw).

Speaking of which, Yoshida thinks Sentai fans are only 3-6? That seems kind of young? That's barely even into elementary school.

Geez, THIS SHOW. Two episodes in and I'm already putting it up there with Shibuya Fifteen. I love it. I really like the fact that Yoshida's conflict is that she is older. I'm 35 and it's crossed my mind as well. Very interesting! The "Farewell, Tokusatsu" part made me both laugh and cry so hard. Too close to home. Thank you , TV-Nihon!!! <3

P.S. The store clerk is also amazing. I love these characters!!!

I really like that this is from a woman's viewpoint, especially with Yoshida. I mean, it's bad enough to be a male otaku but I think the girls get it pretty bad as well but there really aren't that many shows from the female otaku point of view. I really appreciate that a lot.

And yeah, when I first went to a hero show, I needed a ticket and the dude giving them out was like " this is a shinkenger show" "yeah man I know, let me in to watch the chanbara"

I definitely had the same reaction as Nakamura when watching. There's something just so real about a live show.

No, that's about target audience for sentai and KR these days. Usually 8 is about the limit.

I think he's trying to help out his coworker who obviously likes Kano. He's a pushy type anyway, and is trying to get the details so he can inform his friend.

The show definitely has cringy parts, but I think that's all part of the charm. I mean, I know I cringe in real life if I get too excited about something from Sentai and talk about it with someone who's not a fan.

Another solid episode. I love how each episode has a moral and catchphrases; wise sayings that Kano learns from tokusatsu and uses in real life. Teaching moments. I'm sure most of us have done the same. So good!

So I researched it and the answer's hilariously mundane. Get this... they're dramas... that air at 10 o'clock on channel NHK. LOL.

When does this show air actually? On which days and on what time? I'd really like to know.
