Well here's the last free episode, and it's pretty damn confusing. I don't know if that stuff during the credits was supposed to be the end to this episode or a teaser for the DVD. Is the DVD the porno? If so, there website doesn't have any information about it yet, despite promoting the DVD release since episode 1

It's too bad. For the amount of effort they put into this, it could have been a lot more fun and exciting. Although this is the only episode that I felt actually disappointed by, so that's not too bad. I at least felt like I got something amusing from the other episodes, whether it was the action or the bad acting

In my notes, I wrote down "why is there a 2" on Pink's helmet. It was just the 5 backwards

What a cool animal preserve that's in the middle of the city

"This is an animal preserve!"
Wut? This... clearly urban area that's probably the same warehouse again?

So does Pink just take all the dicks or...? Like, I know it's a porno, I just wanna know exactly how (and who) they manage to fit the penises into it.

So Otoha's the only one who gets to live on the same celestial body which is her motif. Kind of convenient for her

Did they just show the whole of the DVD footage in the ending credits?

So the one who plays *that* lady (Lajula?) also voices the rabbit. Nice

They legit spelled it "WAKUSAVER"? I thought they were sticking with Wakusaber (not because of the dumb original captions, but because that's what was in their website)

I gotta admit, I laughed pretty hard at the bluntness of your episode description.

I figured that was a mistake since all their other series that have a similar name were called Saver.

So I was expecting this to be some kind of cliffhanger to setup episode 6 (and encourage us to buy the DVD). But I must admit this isn't what I had in mind.

Takenoko hit the high points here. It was a pretty weird episode, more so for the credits than the episode proper. Given that this was the final free episode - and most of the necessary exposition is out of the way - I was expecting that this would be more of an action-focused episode - at least to the degree that the last couple were. Instead we don't get Pink fighting so much as we get Pink getting curb stomped. So that ended up being unfulfilling.

On the plus side, Pink's back story is at least conceptually cool. The execution was lacking, but an animal conservationist is fitting (this is also a convenient excuse for why she was dumb enough to try to engage a group of masked criminals 4-on-1 :P ). We also got to see more of the generals, which is rarely a bad thing.

Finally, I'm surprised no one has mentioned that the series is getting a sequel. That's rather surprising given that GIGA hasn't made any money off of this yet. I guess the YT viewership must be well above their expectations?

"Will it be a porno" indeed. The fact that GIGA hasn't elaborated on this even with all 5 episodes out is making things incredibly confusing. This obviously all leads to a porno at some point, given both the company and the actors. On the other hand, they have at no point advertised episode 6 as being the porno, treating it much like the first 5 episodes. On the third hand, does it really make sense for a company like GIGA to release a non-porno DVD?

It's kind of a stupid question fixated around porn, but it's a rather important one. This series is hardly Shakespeare, but I still care enough that I want to know how it ends. Seeing as how I presume TV-N doesn't want to get into subbing adult films, if episode 6 is the porno, then that's going to make things hard.

If I had to bet, I'm thinking episode 6 isn't the porno. But we'll see.

More specifically, the same indoor go-kart track they were using last episode. You can see the tires and the painted markers on the floor. Maybe the owner has the animals drive the karts around, ala Wacky Wheels? :P

Dammit Luna! That comment caught me completely off guard; now I'm cackling like a maniac, and if anyone comes to ask why, I'm not going to be able to explain it. :lol: :oops:

That would make the most sense. Otherwise, that implies that they filmed what would have amounted to another episode, only to burn it off in the credits. But who the heck knows at this point?

Pink won't take every dick. The male general of the evil group stars in gay porn only as far as I have found, and he is mostly the one getting penetrated. Yellow also seems like a gay man from his Instagram, all of his pictures are him in makeup and drag, and hanging out with other cute ballerina boys in makeup and drag. Would this company be progressive enough to put in a guy on guy scene, and possibly alienate their straight male audience?

I dunno, it's probably not a great idea to mix up your genres when it comes to porn? Doing a straight sex scene and then going into gay sex is gonna be a turn off (literally) to a lot of people. If the male general is only in for gay porn then maybe it's Pink with the other guys of the sentai? Or maybe the villainesses get fucked to the good side? This is making me want to buy the dvd if only to find out how the pairings work.

I'm surrounded by perverts!

Yeah, I'm weirdly excited to see what they do as a sequel. I'm like Virge, this is such a weird project that I can't help but be morbidly curious about it, even if I'll probably pass on the actual porno itself.

What doubles the confusion is the, frankly, atrocious editing. Why are there so many scenes of the characters saying their transformation and roll call twice in a row? You can't do two "To be continued..." You get one of those per episode.

Maybe we should just get the DVD and release a "no naughty bits" cut

I am really afraid that the DVD will be porno but it will be the type of porno that most people don't want to see, specifically Pink being forced to be naked and "erotically" tortured for 80% of the run time. (That would make the "no naughty bits" cut about five minutes not counting stock footage.)

The only reasonable way to make this work is for one of the female generals to use mind control to make the male Wakusaver's imagine that they are in an alternate world where Pink is doing them in a pleasurable way (so that the General can drain their energy). (And if Pink's actress could act, a big if, she could pretend to be the type of girl that the individual Wakusaver's would go for, but as Luna might say, who watches porn for plot?.) That might be problematic for the gay Wakusaver's though. Then the Wakusaver's could see through the ruse when they see in a reflection that they are doing the female general instead of Pink. This wouldn't ruin Pink for the sequel since it wasn't her that was pulling a Wakusaver train.

Pink's actress looked so much better in the flashback without that eye make up.

I'd be down for that. It's a reasonable compromise if the DVD turns out to be naughty.

So couple discoveries. Looks like the stream version of episode 6 will be August 6. The DVD is August 27th.

Second, it says the episodes stream every Friday at 19:30 which is 7:30, just like the clock in the show

Huh. Well now I'm totally lost. I guess they must have decided to move up their distribution plans? Having a nearly one-month wait between the final streaming episode and the DVD was always a weird choice to begin with.

I'm like 90% sure that the DVD is just a physical copy of the streamable/downloadable episode 6, probably with episodes 1-5 shoved in for good measure.
