Won't surprise anyone, but it's more of the same. I was looking at the run-time and was hopeful for something, but that something ended up just being the full theme song along with the best cuts of the series. Really, instead of having this acting and stuff inbetween, they could have just showed that music video and that would have been pretty good? But besides red, blue is only cute to look at, and I'd be sad to lose the mushroom zombie guy chewing the scenery, but sadly very little else would be lost

I wonder how we'd receive this series if it came immediately after Wakusaver. I feel like I'd be less disappointed in Kougaiga if Dinnovator hadn't raised the bar

As it is, Kougaiga won't blow your mind or anything, but it's not a boring 10 minutes either

Well, at least they set up the pr0n fairly well. The non-JAV guys have an excuse not to be around and the the heroine has a reason to put herself in danger.

I would rate this slightly higher than Wakusaver S1. The girl had better eye makeup and brought her own oshiri. I would be more interested in Kougaiga S2 than Wakusaver S2.

So, what will GAIA do next? Judging from their back catalog, they are probably itching to do a Sailor Senshi one. However, a girl team would require them to pay multiple JAV ladies, unless they get sneaky and get 2-4 regular actresses and have one JAV girl to do the special. It would almost fit the Senshi style if the JAV girl was the leader since the leader is the one who starts out clumsier than the others.

That's a good question. This is probably the first break we've had in GIGA series in a few months and nothing even announced yet. Maybe it's for the best? Hopefully they'll take their time and the next series will show some real effort

Also, I can't help but wonder what the production cycle is like behind the scenes. Assuming they film these a few months before release, I imagine that Kougaiga was probably the first show to be made as Wakusaver was airing, so GIGA probably hadn't seen any reactions to their YouTube releases. Maybe they're taking the feedback and reaction from viewers to improve?

Seira's great eye candy, and the first MotW waqs fairly decent, but pretty much everything else about this one was lacklustre. Wakusaver could at least land a punch now and then, but a group of trained ninjas can't? And the open backs on the second MotW's arms pretty much ruined what could've been a pretty good look. Instead, it felt like they bought the costume at a used monster suit sale.

Despite not being a fan of western ninja-themed shows, I probably would've given this a pass if Goku and his buddy could actually fight so we had something to do between fan service shots of Seira's outfit. The spore guy was sort of fun in that over-the-top way that overly smug villains tend to be with Toei, but that lasted what... 30 seconds, maybe?

For a season that lasted the length of a single episode (excluding the so-called porn ep), the only really good thing I have to say about it is the improved camera work. Let's hope the upcoming Wakusaver s2 is a big improvement over this, because in the course of the three shows, they did one step forward and two steps back in quality.

I finally got around to watching this. And yeah... there's not a whole lot to say.

This episode was a bit longer, at about six and a half minutes of new content. And it's mostly a decently choreographed fighting scene. But then that description could have been used for just about any episode in this series.

Run times aside, I'm not sure Kougaiga has any big flaws. But that's because the series has no ambition; it can't fail when it doesn't try to do anything remarkable. No real efforts are made with plot, characterization, setting, etc.

And worse, we never find out what's in the box. We don't even get a hint of what's in the box. Which is the whole thing driving the story to begin with.

The end result is that it's never terrible, but it sure is mediocre. It's mediocre as a TV series, and it's mediocre as an advertisement for the JAV release.

Wakusaver definitely had more ambition. It screwed up a lot as well, especially with some of the sets/locales used. But it tried to do more with its characters and its plot. Within that framework, Kougaiga isn't an overall improvement, but rather it trades-off one set of strengths and weaknesses for another.

Seriously, what's in the box? I want to know what's in the damn MacGuffin!

Maybe that's GIGA's scheme all along. Make us pay $60 not for a nudie film, but to find out what's in the box. :lol:

Thanks!

I'd ask what the balls do, but given it's a JAV, I don't think I really want to know...

Looks like they don't do anything or we at least don't know till they do a S2 I guess.

She gets attacked by the kappa monster looks like it's in a park, he opens the box, sexy time happens - she gets away and runs into the Spore Shroom monsters - spit roasted sexy time happens and it ends with them shooter their spores on her.

Yup, bang then poised with the spores; roll credits. With not even an ad/preview for whatever may be next.
