Tsuukai x Gokai discussion Thread

Post by takenoko »

Wiki

I thought Flint's type was her brother?

Wait, that platform is just a dropoff? How does their wacky CGI interior work

LOl at the backs of yellow, green, and blue

I thought the twins were human again

They got Gai but not the rest? Boo

Why doesn't the tanuki have giant balls?

I guess I should have expected this from all the clubs conspiculously around

Disappointed we don't get Flint's transformation from the live shows

I wonder what building they used for this

A fine script from Komura Junko. Amusing

Really surprised they recorded an end song for this

If you want to learn more about Japanese tanuki, definitely recommend Studio Ghibli's Pom Poko:

The last episode showed that they can change back and forth from human and SD bot whenever they feel like. Handy for when doubling up the actor who played both of them and dubbing him over would be too complicated!

That's not actually a new song, it's just the insert theme for Super Tsuukaiser. ...Y'know, the form that's not in this special...

Bit of a heads up, a little bit in and it seems like a sequel to Zenkaiger vs Kiramager vs Sempaiger. I think I'll hold off watching this for a bit. bitbitbitbitbit

It has nothing to do with that movie other than Captain Marvelous is in this? The story is completely independent

I also recommend this one. As fatiguing as one of Toei's spinoffs can be, I thought this was a genuinely funny work from Komura Junko

This was really fun. But the annoying part to me was Gai's TERRIBLE imitation of Luka. Plot-wise, I think they should have just gotten Luka to act as bait. She could have pulled it off better than any of the other girls. But then again, we wouldn't get to see Flint transform in that case(still disappointed that they didn't use Flint's suit from the G-Rosso shows :cry: ). Yet I still think Flint teaming up with Luka would work better given their similar personalities and all. 🤷‍♀️
I was kinda hoping that Marvelous would say to Ahim, "Don't marry that idiot Tanuki! Marry me instead." But, I guess they won't grant all of my wishes with one special. 😅😝

Also, shouldn't this thread be in the Zenkaiger discussion forum instead? This special is focused on the Goldtsuiker family after all...

maybe its' good because it is so terrible

No lie, I always want more Luka, but if you can't get her, then this is acceptable

It is in the Zenkaiger forum

Okay you got me, I copied it over to the Gokaiger forum, but I left a shadow thread in the Zenkaiger forum. I guess it's only technically in the Gokaiger one though

In fairness to Gokai Silver, his imitation of Luka did not have to be good since the monster has probably never seen Luka before nor has he seen a cross dresser before.

I was pondering during this episode if I has watching a Giga Tokusatsu show. You have brainwashed heroines performing G-rated hentai stuff with a monster. Toei did it wrong though: They killed off the monster before they could put out the "special" DVD release...

The suit actress for Flint did a good job of mimicking her overacting. I guess that if you want to be a Tokusatsu pirate you need recognizable body language.

Maybe a team up episode with Flint and Yodonna?

He did see her though when Ahim introduced him to the team. Marvelous even said he noticed the attention she was getting, which was how he figured it probably wasn't just going to be Ahim.

That was my main complaint about Zenkaiger and I said it months ago here

I will look into that form because I didn't know it exist but I liked that they made her justice in this movie at least and let the idea open that she may have his own change form in the future.

This was ok for a short/quick episode and its always good to see more Marvelous and Gokaiger in general.

Easy to miss, but I like the promos that Marvelous and Tsuuakizer do. It's short and funny

Well that was certainly different. Going the comedy route definitely fits Zenkaiger better than the seriousness of the Ryusoulger TTFC movie. But I was not expecting a masochistic MOTW! :shock: I know that Japan is into some really weird shit, and yet every now and then it still manages to surprise me. That is certainly one way to develop content for an older audience.:oops:

In any case, it's always good to see the Gokaigers again (especially Ahim and Gai). And while I could do without the Toy Twins, Zox is decent enough, and it's fantastic to not only see Flint being given something to do, but given the chance to transform as well. Her sideline status in Zenkaiger was always an oddity, since she wasn't an outsider like traditional support characters.

And since when did Gai's morpher get an upgrade? He didn't have that in Gokaiger Ten.

Side observation: Ahim announced her engagement at the curry shop :D

Edit: And while it's kind of weird to see two transformed Sentai heroes taking on a group of bog standard humans (and even more so at not immediately winning), I do appreciate that it means the stunties get to show their faces. That basically never happens in Sentai

Poorly. Very poorly. :lol:

Given the, er, theme of this movie, I think there are limits to even what Toei is comfortable encouraging (or at least showing off)

Oh? What was her transformation for the live shows?

But it's supposed to be terrible. That's what makes it so entertaining: it's awful, and yet it worked. :lol:

That is actually I an excellent point that I had not considered before. The suit actor did a fantastic job giving Flint-Tsuukaiser an entirely different body language that matched the human character. As utterly silly as Toku often is, they also have moments where it's clear someone on the crew is purposely approaching matters from an artistic perspective.

The theming to this one surprised me as well! Kids, so you want to learn about being a masochist...

>And since when did Gai's morpher get an upgrade? He didn't have that in Gokaiger Ten.

I did think it was funny to see him pull that out of nowhere to make Flint's transformation possible. Surely this is a P Bandai toy rightt now

>Side observation: Ahim announced her engagement at the curry shop :D

Ah, where else would the Gokaigers be I guess. Did they ever replace the Galleon?

>Edit: And while it's kind of weird to see two transformed Sentai heroes taking on a group of bog standard humans (and even more so at not immediately winning), I do appreciate that it means the stunties get to show their faces. That basically never happens in Sentai

Were they human? I assumed from their weird look that they were like putties or something

I feel like it's been a while since they did a behind the scenes net movie to give props to the suit actors of tokusatsu. They listed Gomi Ryoko in the credits. Since Nogawa Mizuho was probably GokaiPink, I aSsume, Ryoko did female Tsuukaizer

>Agreed! But man did they look cold while doing them :lol:

Why are actors always so cold in japan? They wear like the biggest coats in between shots
