Alt Title: Threekaizer is born

Oh, why are we getting an explanation that Tanabata is late in Zenkaiger? Weird

It's also weird that Zenkaiger is episode 20, but for Saber it's a special

Is Kaito supposed to hae weird paint on the right side of his jacket? It's hard to tell, but it doesn't look like it belongs

Oh, having one monster be Orihime and the other the ox herder is a neat concept for a joint special

Oh maybe his jacket is supposed to look like that

Zyuran, how unladylike!

What was Flint doing behind that couch? Is there anything behind there? Really speaks to how empty these dumb cgi sets are

Hmmm. Do they call themselves Kamen Riders in Saber? I don't remember

Why didn't Magine break out in the first place? I guess she needed Reika to show her the way

I can't tell what Super Tsuukaizer is supposed to be based on. That makes it a bad reference. Is it supposed to be the dinosaur from TimeRanger? Super Zenkaizer is so much better

Huh, why did Reika hug Magine?

Really enjoyed both these crossovers

No new Zenkaiger till August. Man these movie trailers really leave nothing to the imagination

I briefly recall that they do call themselves Kamen Riders in Saber way back in the beginning.

Magine was being a ditz and even does admit it was stupid when she reveal herself before getting chained up.

Super Tsuukazier is based on V-Rex from Timeranger. I do like appearance of Super Tsuukaizer than Super Zenkaizer since it doesn't look like the design is overtaken by V-Max compared to Dragon Casaer.

I think Reika actually like Magine and was going to miss her. They actually were nice to watch together.

I'm glad they didn't ignore the tower in space in Saber's World in this part unlike in the Saber Special Chapter where it was there but no mention was made to it.

Like in the Saber Special Chapter, having Reika and her brother works since they are antagonistic in nature even though Reika and Magine got along great. Also I think Reika doesn't have another female fighter to interact with shows a different side to her.

How is it that the Shindai siblings are more likeable here?

I personally think the comedy works better here, Ryoga reminded me of Squidward and the Zenkaigers are SpongeBob and Patrick

I liked that the brought up the similarities between Zox and Ryoga, like their love for their sisters and that Zox learned a lesson along the way.

I read somewhere that Reika's actress was a fan of Magine, so that may be a reference to it.

This is not a special episode because it can be lined up in the continuity, meanwhile that's much harder for Saber. Considering Tanabata, that could put Saber Special between the defeat of Master Logos and the rise of Storius. However in Zenkaiger they said that this holiday had already happened, while in Saber was happening while Storius tried to capture Luna, so in order to Saber's episode to work from a chronological standpoint, this should happen after Tassel's death.

Something I realized when I was writing this, and something I applaud this episode for, is that it made me remember Durandal's name, Ryoga. Thanks Zenkaiger, you did in one episode what 20 of Saber didn't.

I prefer Super Tsuukaizer over Super Zenkaizer because it feels more like an upgrade than an armor, also its more light design keeps the mobility that Zox is known for.

well the shindai siblings being more likable here is because they have some spot light on them instead of being extra heroes.
just when you think zox cant be MORE extra that Super Twokaiser Henshin dance. WOW!
and yeah, both Shindai siblings ive forgetten their names lol in fact i think i refered to Reika as Sabenella.
Ryuoga's intro was kinda weak, but Reika's was a bit stronger.
i took her and Magine's friendship as Reika likely doesnt have any friends, just her and her brother always together defend the clan as the master logos' servants in the shadows. so meeting Magine, who praised her and thought she was cool, and was able to defend herself, Reika likely didnt know what to think.

So funny enough the whole Reika hugging Magine was NOT in the script apparently. Angela Mei herself just really wanted to hug Magine since she’s a gigantic fan of Magine in the first place and the director just decided to keep it in. People are referencing her Twitter to confirm this

The way I learned Reika's name was a little bit tricky but it worked for me. In Spanish almost every noun can become its female counterpart by adding an a at the end, so Saber-a. Under that logic, I remembered that Saber's sword is named Rekka, which is written similarly to Reika, and that how I learned her name. Before her transformation I always checked the wiki when I referred to her.

What's the name you had a the most problem remembering? Mine were the Megidos

so this is how i know the riders
Touma -> Saber
Rintaro -> Nagare or blades
Kento -> alengina/caliber
buster dad -> genbu Gekkido
Yuri - -> X Swordsman
Long haired Genta -> Hanzel gunblade

trashy romance novel dressed guy -> pheonix person
constipated man -> ocean history (but now Ryouga ... ryoga? Ryu?) lol
Sabenlla -> mosquito sword girl (but now reika)

but thats how i remember them. yup.

PS this is my first rider, but i have DL'd Blade so ill binge that eventually.
PS EDIT: its the sentai thread but were discussing the riders more because 2 characters whove been ... okish got more spot light as guest stars than on their own show!)

That would be another layer of interpretation behind Reika's hug, she is like "Magine, I want to stay, I don't want to be background decoration anymore!"

Or, "Let me stay, Magine! I don't want to be on a fake Super Sentai show. I'll even be a non-primary color!"

So... I guess shipping has already started? But it kind of makes sense, seeing Reika's sudden change in behavior and all...
But Reika's character makes it hard to guess if she was just going to miss Magine, or if there's something more... :|

I absolutely adore crossovers, and when it makes me laugh this[\b] much... oh boy
This was great. Zenkaiger is great. Crossovers are great. :D
