LOL, she kicked that fly shocker so hard that he exploded with such intensity that she had to shield herself

Why are you following that dude?

LOL at the face of that monster

With this jewel theme I wonder if they were particularly inspired by Kiramagers

I feel like you don't see a lot of monsters using their staff weapons to trip in Sentai. Maybe they don't want kids to imitate it in real life

What was her job before she became a power ranger? Is that a military uniform? Is this flashback in tutankhamin's tomb?

Oh no, more of Giga's bad voice modulations. Jordan, speak louder, we can't hear you in your goldfish bowl

Good theme song when blue gets her groove. Wish she had just cold clocked the monster instead of slapping though

Hold on. /me pulls a lit cigarette out of the pocket to smoke. Explodes

If nothing else the Prism Three girls sell a beating really well.

I wonder if their combat training is watching the movie "Sissy Slap Fight"? Maybe they are inspired by Mizuki in Don Brothers?

I think the uniform is that of a tour guide, but I put no certainty on it.

It's nice that the bad guys let Blue alone so she could have a flashback to recover her resolve. Maybe they were on a smoking break?

A solid Blue episode. They only have four episodes to work with, but at least they are not wasting them.

Since Yellow and Blue are Zen Tokusatsu girls will Zen start doing Youtube shows with the payoff being movies that they sell on their website but could be shown on Youtube if they wanted?

By the way, what are the in character names of Pink, Blue, and Yellow? The Kanji for their names all seems to run together and I can't read them.

Maybe it's just me but I wouldn't go with the weird bad guy when he tells me to go with him

Why is the cigarette smoke done with CG? Maybe don't go with a guy who refuses to put a lit cigarette to his mouth for the role that apparently requires one?

The extra worrying about his dad is so wooden and awful I have to wonder if it's not the director or a random cameraman.

Lol Yellow's fight scene was so stilted I could practically see the person waving the cue card offscreen "now slap him, and knee him twice!"

I also suspected that some of the extras are just the director or the staff. You don't see a lot of their faces and they get offed in pretty silly ways

Normally when you see the police fight a MOTW, they either get shot at or slashed at, such to force them back while the police still look heroic. But not this series. Oh no, they actually had the mooks make a mockery of the police! :lol:

Past that, this episode doesn't particularly stick out. And while I complained about the thin plot before, this episode I find myself pondering the opposite. What's the point of an origin story for a character in a 4 episode series (where she won't even get naked)? This series hasn't clicked with me such that I particularly care about Blue or Yellow. And it's not much better for Pink.

Speaking of Pink, didn't we finish the end of episode 1 with her running off to join her comrades? So why is she still there fighting mooks?

And poor DeathDia. Unlike DeathHeart, he didn't even get a good death scene.:( His defeat was just a rehash of the last episode, and with a less flashy death.

Yeah, that was a bit weird. I'm not 100% sure what actually exploded; it wasn't the mook, since he went flying.
What was her job before she became a power ranger? Is that a military uniform? Is this flashback in tutankhamin's tomb?
The subs answered this, but for anyone else wondering: police investigator.

Credit for trying to be cool. But if you want to do the trope right (and it's a hero trope, so why are you doing it here?), the actor has to stumble to the ground, take a long drag, and exhale first before expiring. Besides the issue of the actor not actually smoking, it all passed too quickly.

Okay, that's a good one! :lol:

I kind of get what they were going for - they were taking the fight outside. But since Blue had just established that DeathDia had intended to lay out a trap for her, the trope breaks down and following him seems like a terrible idea...
Why is the cigarette smoke done with CG? Maybe don't go with a guy who refuses to put a lit cigarette to his mouth for the role that apparently requires one?
What's the smoking rate like in Japan these days, especially for the younger generations? Perhaps it's just a case of taking what they can get? Inhaling burning plant matter laced with an addictive chemical is not the smartest thing to be doing.

Data's from 2019 so I believe numbers have gone down due to COVID but I can't find anything more recent
. . . . . . . Male . . Female
20s . 23.3 . . 6.6
30s . 33.1 . . 11.1
40s . 35.5 . . 13.6
50s . 33.0 . . 12.0
60s . 21.3 . . 5.4
70+ . 27.8 . . 8.7

Total
Male 27.1%
Female 7.6%
National average 16.7%

I mean I'm not particularly surprised considering most places still have separate smoking/nonsmoking areas (or just smoking if it's a bar) and pachinko places stink to high heaven of tobacco to the point where I can even smell it behind a mask when I'm just passing by an open door. Granted, it's a massive improvement from 50 years ago when it was at 80%+ for males or even 30 years ago at 60%+
