Go-Busters the Movie released

Post by takenoko »

Uhhh... so I haven't watched this yet, but apparently this is the best Sentai movie release Toei has ever done.

I open this thing up and...
I get a script. (What?)
I get... a map of Tokyo. (Cool!)
I get... the disc for the movie. (Captions, yes!)
And I get... a second disc which has the director's cut.

Wait what? Toei releases a Sentai director's cut and they're not gouging me for it? Plus this was released in December (Sentai movies tend to be released in February).

So what's going on? This is like totally fantastic.

Edit:
So the movie was pretty entertaining. Pretty action packed and kept me following along. I also enjoyed the gorgeous shots of Tokyo. It was really colorful.

Seems like a pity that they didn't explain more about Enetan or why there's a new Buster Machine. Not a big deal, but a little explanation would be nice. Also, it's weird to see a parody of Tokyo in this alternate future world. I guess it's the same, but Enetron Towers are required all over the place. Progress?! And Tokyo Tower is called the Tokyo Enetower

J is awesome yet again. "Animal instinct, gotta go."

Ewww, that scene transition that I hate is in this movie.

The fight was pretty good as usual. I like that the Busters lost the first round (weak points~). It's kind of nice to not see them powering through everything. I liked the great stair climbing scene.

Kicking the Metaroid out the window was pretty cool, but it was pretty silly that they jumped out after it.

I don't understand why the Tokyo Tower mascot are condom heads.

If I had to nitpick the movie, I'd have to say that it seemed out of characteristic for Jin to just go "Enter's got the perfect plan. Guess I'll run away" I mean, I know they like to give the extra Rangers no screen time in movies, but this seemed pretty cheap. (BTW, according to this script, Jin has four scenes in the movie. Ryuuji has 13 while Youko and Hiromu have more)

The "I'm out of water" thing immediately reminded me of Shinkenger, which was nice.

Watching Kuroki doing the "HEEEELLLL YEEEEEEEESSSSS" thing was damn funny. He also did that in episode 44 of the series.

This was a really fun movie. It had a little of everything you expect to see in the show but it flowed naturally.

It was a little jarring to see Jin retreat like that but he did show up again later. I guess he wasn't being serious.

Tokyo Tower was a nice change of setting. I'm surprised it took this long for super sentai to use the landmark as a movie's focal point.

At least Jin and J got a bit more screen time compared to the last few years of extra members getting so little screen time.

Yeah, the extra member always gets the shaft in the movies. I get that it's a short movie, but it still sucks. I don't know if it's funny or just sad when Jin goes "I'm outta here" and leaves for the center part of the movie.

J's hilarious. Animal instinct! Pity we couldn't have more of J here though. And well, for Jin's case of retreating into the subdimension, he probably couldn't do much anyway. My guess is that with J rusted, he probably can't maintain his avatar for long, and maybe can't transform either.

I like that the weak points were what weakened the Busters in the first round. But Hiromu's one was just too coincidental.

Kuroki was funny in this episode. Besides the "HEEEEEELLLLLLL YEAHHHHHHH!", him playing with the Megazord figures at the end was pretty funny as well.

So wait... Toei actually released a product correctly. On the first try... I'm really shocked.

I don't think Jin ran away. I'm pretty sure because J was in rough shape he couldn't maintain connection so Jin decided to look cool while being thrown back. Jin's weakpoint is J of course.

Sort of wish Jin and J was able to get into the role call but meh.

Gripes. Second movie where you can tell the writers really dislike Youko. Fourze took her spot in the Megazord combi. This time Enetan took her spot.

Not enough Jin and J.

Aside from that. I enjoyed this more than Taisen.

I'd say that's pretty much a by-the-book Sentai movie. The 6th ranger gets shafted while a new mech gets introduced with little-to-no backstory. In the middle of it there's a lot of fighting, and rare for this series some notable wirework. However I'm glad to see the megazord fight kept up with the pace and styling of the series; so often they use the movie budget to go nuts on the CGI while making very little use of models and costumes. :)

Yeah ! Thanks for the release and Merry Christmas !

Small French nitpick : "Chance" is a feminine word in French, so Enter should be saying "Bonne chance" and not "Bon chance".

Other than that, I quite enjoyed this movie. It was a classic sentai summer movie: never exceptional, but always entertaining.

Ah, I see that was noted already in our wiki. I'll try to keep that in mind from here on out. Thanks!

... Wait Director's cut? I don't remember the original version being released to start with. Though the timing for this release was nice since Frog shows up in the newest subbed episode.

Nice little movie with funny little moments.

That's because the original version was released with the Director's Cut at the same time. It's sort of like those Blu-Ray/DVD combo packs. Since they came out at the same time and both on Blu-Ray, we just decided to sub the DC instead of having a TC of it.
