Alt Title: This episode is not garbage

A Vroom/Magine focus episode. The conflict between their personalities is what made this work

Who's that mysterious guy?

Notes:
-What's with the camera work at the beginning? That fly sound effect is pretty good
-LOL, what was that jumping in the pile of garbage effect? So cheap

I feel like i'm not the only one that has been calling zenkaiger complete and utter trash. So they were like okay we're let's run with it.

kudos for them taking a joke, but it still doesn't change the fact that it's still trash.

this episode so fucking cringy, like i'm trying to figure out which was worst. this episode or the episode of power rangers turbo where tj gets cooked into a pizza.

oh it's so bad. it's soo bad that it makes remarkable. Like. siiiiiiighh

next up Di-end. -_-;;;; at least he's a human actor.

Random trivia time!

The Japanese garbage system is INCREDIBLY complex due to the lack of land available for landfills. A massive chunk of the garbage is burned at special facilities (like the facility that served as the location for Prime Minister's office in Build!), while recyclables are sorted into paper, plastic, bottles, cans, and glass. The system is one of the things a lot of foreigners struggle with when they first come to Japan because it's sometimes not obvious what item is what sort of garbage.

Tokyo/Osaka/Kyoto/other large cities tend to be fairly easy to deal with (Tokyo area doesn't require sorting your plastic from normal combustible garbage), but the further away from the cities you get, the harder it is to put things in landfills, so sometimes it can get tricky. One city in Fukushima has 51 different categories garbage needs to be sorted into. Oversized garbage that doesn't fit into a trash bag you need to call the city, arrange a pickup, and pay an extra fee (usually only a few hundred yen). This is why a lot of rivers/lakes in Japan tend to have ridiculous stuff like microwaves/refrigerators/bikes thrown away in them, cause people don't want to deal with the hassle.

Here's an example from Nagoya, which is fairly reasonable/standard

Here's the city with 51 types of garbage (no English but you get the point):

That says 34 doesn't it?

Edit: I recorded this translation because I thought it might help my timer to see how I used his pretime, but I'll leave it here in case people want to see how a script gets translated. Keep in mind, this was around 2 AM at night, so I was feeling kind of tired at that point, since I already worked on translating Saber by that point

I don't really cared about the episode but Ul and Phillipu fusion as a possible ally was cool here. A half human half robot character. Interesting.

did anyone else notice that the footage post-mech fight was flipped and the halves of the Zenkai-Ohs were on the wrong sides?

I know I've been kind of ragging on the series for a while now. But that episode was hard to watch; Zenkaiger is testing my limits for Sentai absurdities. We've had trash monsters before, but getting stuck in trash bags is really turning things up to 11. Thankfully, next week looks like it's going to kick off something more meaty?

Meanwhile, I feel kind of sorry for the set decorators on this one. That's a lot of prop rubbish to have to create and set out, and then actually clean up afterwards.:lol: And the mecha fight had a similar level of decoration. I'm not sure it was a particularly good fight, but someone went above and beyond with the models and other props there.

That's definitely an oddity. It's not unheard of for film editors to flip scenes on a selective basis (left and right have certain subtle meanings; the heroes are always on the right when firing their finisher, for example). But there are obvious symmetry issues that have to be taken into account. It's a wild-assed guess, but as they obviously didn't accidentally film that scene flipped, I have to presume that the film editor wanted the robos' positions swapped, and figured that it was an error few people would notice.

Thanks Luna! That's not only interesting, but it adds some helpful context to the episode.:)

Nope, it's not just you. I do find them similar enough that they could have been mistaken without the two actors being side by side to spot the differences.

Least favorite ep so far, but there was one cute little moment I loved: Magine doing part of the Magi ED dance just before the Go-Buster gear usage.

I think this episode is a lot more enjoyable if you understand the Japanese trash system. It's something you kind of see everywhere but never actually think about. Thankfully, Luna came to the rescue with a great explanation. I'd actually suggest going back and rewatching if you didn't catch all the nuances prior to Luna's post.

One thing I do really like about this show is there's always some hidden threat to the more absurd villains. The mushrooms seemed silly, but actually had toxic spores. And the trash seems pointless, but Vroom points out that psychology has found being in a messy environment contributes to anxiety and depression.

Zenkaiger isn't the first parody series in the franchise, but they do a really good job of poking fun at all the tropes while also poking fun at itself. It kind of made me laugh that the first episode saw Kaito thrown into a pile of trash early in the ep and this time a pile of trash was thrown onto HIM early in the ep.

Something else that struck me while watching is that Magine is a good role model for kids. She's not very good at a lot of things, clumsy, and shy. This ep really emphasised her clumsiness and how messes often happen because of it. But in the end, she still found a way to help out and do her part. She's the least mature of the team, and I think that might be her strong point, because younger kids can relate to her easiest of all, with Gaon sort of being second most relatable (kids share his love of animals), while older viewers can relate to the other three more.

On a related note, I also like how Vroom had to stop the others from falling into common pitfalls of cleaning. Getting caught in nostalgia, fretting over something that might be damaged, or failing to sort your trash as you go are all things that can kill productivity. And Magine was overwhelmed instead of tackling things one piece at a time. A lot of little lessons crammed into the ep that give it some real value. As a parent, I really appreciate that.


Honestly, I think this episode held up pretty well, and I feel the weakest of the bunch was probably the ice episode due to the massive green screening and weak combat. But even that episode had plenty of good stuff in it. Maybe that's going to be the trend... People are going to hate on the Magine episodes the most because those will all probably use more effects and/or have more morals for small kids than the rest of the series.

We all know the CGI is bad, but the CGI in the mecha cockpit seemed really good to me for some reason- almost as if it was a real set

I noticed Magine's mecha being on the wrong side in that last mecha scene, but I thought I was seeing things
