Prism Three 04

Pink is getting background now?! Bad guy with a black rose, hit all those cliches lol

Surprised they bothered to animate this ship

For a second I was hoping pink was the weird voice that appeared before blue and yellow lol

Swordos actually has a neat design. But ummm... shouldn't the suit actor usually be taller than the face villain?

What's going on with the pink scene at 4:40? She drops her fighting pose and sighs, b ut it's really badly timed

Hey, they went for some sword choreography. Laughs at pink farting her sword at the guy

They're not going to show the attack that breaks the mask? Pffft

Gotta love them uppercutting each other like rock 'em sock em robots

Hmmm, I'm beginning to wonder if that fire was added in post

Could we not have gotten some makeup on this dude?

Okay they're definitely just stealing the plot from Kiramager

Why don't you do your roll call within the same camera view? Must be covid restrictions lol

Maybe they should have practiced this group fight more

I can see where the explosion budget went

Hey blue and yellow, you're the distraction, you should run first so that pink can sneak off to get the guy

Wait why was Swordos slowing down. Wait the guy wasn't that hurt. What was the plan again?

Surprised their masks came off, I swore they weren't on set

Oh blue and yellow died? I guess that's an ending at least lol. Guess it's not really the type of show to deal with the emotions or internality of the characters. Kind of rough for pink to drag these two civilians into her battle and then just to have them die though

So they got rid of Shou and Hikaru because they couldn’t psrticipate in you know what? Clever but it was s bit too much I think. The other question is who’s gonna be a villain in a “ special” ep? Every monster of the series was connected to a bishounen gang member. There’s still one member who isn’t killed but he deffinetly is not JAV. The leader of Deathkillers though most likelyvis since he has mask on his face like Gulforzer and Brodia. So Pink most likelyvwill fight with him

A pretty good ending! While Giga has a long way to go in terms of character development for their heroes, the villains do chew the scenery pretty well.

The broken helmet is a troupe I didn't expect them to pull out. Usually a sentai does not survive an attack that breaks (rather than disappears) their helmet, but Pink is made of sterner stuff.

I guess they never explained why some shots in this episode were obviously shot at night. I thought that Spade's attack had knocked Pink into the shadow dimension where Spade gets plus 2 on his attacks. Was most of this shot in one day?

Nice shot of Pink's oshiri in the forest.

Since the face actors for Blue and Yellow were not in the promotional poster it was known before the first show that they were not going to participate in the special. However, killing some of the heroes in the Youtube episodes is a first for them, and it was pretty shocking.

Both DeathJoker and DeathKiller-sama are in the special episode.

I was wondering about that!

If so, they could do a second season where DeathKiller-sama's baby face brother revives Prism 3.

In the first episode, Pink beat up the red rose guy enough that his Shadow Monster croaked, so even if black rose guy wasn't that hurt it's connection to its master was weakened which allowed it to be killed by a double attack.

Now even the YouTube series are getting bad endings? Man, GIGA really hates people being happy? Become a hero! Die valiantly with no one there to see your end!

It's different, I'll grant you that.

Most for the explosion and fire effects were VFX shots, which is to be expected for something done on the cheap. I was actually a bit surprised that they used real pyrotechnics later on.

The idea was interesting. The execution was lacking. It didn't have much of an impact, especially since she just loses the helmet entirely 20 second later. (Boy, Prism Three sure lose their headgear a lot!)
Was most of this shot in one day?
That is certainly my assumption. These obviously aren't big-budget productions, so I can only assume they only want to do hair and makeup once.

Pink being a non-human thing sure was kind of a twist I hadn't expected

Was she the spaceship herself? Did seem like she transformed into her real form from the spaceship, instead of her getting out of the spaceship or something

Is the porn part marketed as an episode or a special/movie?

It's supposed to be a direct continuation of the Youtube show.

I meant if it's supposed to get presented as "episode 5" or a special movie. The story can get continued in both

I don't know. My guess would be "special movie" since they had a "The End" title at the end of the Youtube series.

Thanks. TV-Nihon wiki stating "Ep 5" made me confused 😅

My thoughts on the series as a whole (only counting the youtube stuff):

For a low budget indy tokusatsu, this is pretty impressive. This series had a lot of firsts:

* First time we had all female team (I don't count the Spandexer or Fontaine families as a team)

* First time we had protagonist characters get killed in the Youtube episodes

* First time we had villains who fought with full face exposed

* First time they used Zen Tokusatsu heroines

On the other hand, there is still a lot of room for improvement, but most of the improvements I can think of would cost money:

* The lengths of the episodes should be more uniform. They go through some effort to simulate a TV show, but TV shows usually have uniform times.

* The show seemed to have blown off shooting at least two scenes: the scenes where Yellow and Blue kick the butts of the DeathKiller grunts as newly minted Prism Sentai and get told how to use their special attacks by distorted voice guy.

* How can you have a Sentai themed show without an ending dance? (This would cost lots of money so I understand them passing.)

* I think the episode that had the most views was the second one which had for a thumbnail (originally, I think) a shot of one of the Four Heavenly Generals grabbing Prism Blue's chin. They should have had at least one "sexy" scene between the Generals and Prism Sentai just for thumbnail purposes.

* Giga seems to be allergic to having youtube series having more than one Youtube season (not counting Wakusaber). If they continue to use Zen girls in future series, why not have them survive the first season so they can "resurrect" the Giga girl who gets "killed" in the movie using the power of their magic?

* A face villain who fights along with a MOTW could be a good idea for a series that goes longer than one series. In the first series, the face villain's monsters get offed each episode, but he can teleport back to headquarters to fight next week saying "I'll remember this.". In the fourth episode he finally gets killed, but the next season they can have another face villain. This way you could have villains who can pretend to be good guys in the first episode of the season to help develop the characters of the heroines.

* Why not make up really random English word attacks? The stranger the name of the attack the more bad ass it is!
