Oh, a rare non CGI Kiji Brother

Haruka, if your friends call you plagiarist, maybe they're not your friends

Haruka you have a job. Why are you getting another one. Actually, Tsuyoshi why don't you work at the cafe, it doesn't seem like Haruka does that much work anyway

I like how Shinichi's resume just says he was born. LOL at Shinichi gettinb burned by money. Is he a vampire

Why is Shinichi tired? That bum should be used to doing nothing and not working lol

I don't know if I'm more impressed by the team coming together to work for each other, or amazed at how this all comes from their poor communication with each otehr lol

Oh hi Tsubasa, nice of you to join this story. Wait, Tsubasa doesn't know you guys are DonBrothers. Oh he's just alone in the kitchen. Kind of sad

Oh hi Nouto, been a while since you were in the story

Inoue hijinx! Some nice moves from Jirou for a bit, but then Momo just joins in

Not a bad episode but I'm kinda getting tired of the whole everyone being a lone wolf schtick. Are we just never going to get a full team henshin? Or even an actual roll call? Sure they're superfluous but they're a staple of the genre, I want to see them occasionally!

We're literally halfway through the series right now and Black still doesn't know who everyone is, no one feels anything like an actual team and Jirou is just sort of there occasionally. It's well past time to start moving the plot forward and yet it seems we're going to be stuck a bit longer, especially if next week is the recap episode that I suspect it is.

The plot moved forward from ep 1 - 18 and we had filler ep from 19 - now, so the structure of this series with me is better than other series in the past.

I think I've read before that Shirakura has said they actually do not like to move the plot forward for Sentai during the summertime, because children have less time to tune into the episodes. They want them to be able to jump back in without losing too much plot so they keep things more episodic during these months. Probably (hopefully) it picks up in September again.

Great episode all around though Kinoue can't miss
watch ultraman ginga it's actually a really fantastic show

Surprisingly, quite a lot. Each member of Goggle V is supposed to be based on an ancient civilization that was destroyed by the Deathdark army, which is why he looks like ruins. Each member was also represented by a gemstone, which can be seen below the ruins on Daiki's body. The gym equipment he uses is each member's weapon, a blue ring, black clubs, yellow ball, pink ribbon (and a red rope which I don't think was used in this episode). And the kids he kidnaps are a nod to the Computer Boys and Girls, kids that assisted the team. Finally, when he escapes for the first time, he says "Stop the battle" which is the title of Goggle V's ED.

Nice joke with Kijino promoting traffic safety, given he was the Carranger monster previously.

I liked how the lack of communication actually caused a humorous mi-up this week. And then strains credibility with Tsubasa blissfully unaware what's going on outside.

Next week:
Spoiler
So...they're making a joke that it's the Donbrothers finale because it's the Revice one? Sounds like a clip show to me.

I don't mind episodic storytelling during the summer. You don't need to move the plot forward for character development. The issue is that they have yet to fully bond as a cohesive team. Without this foundation, it is awkward to see them get involved in each other's personal lives like close friends.

This episode relies on a weird game of telephone where each person in the chain embellishes on the original conversation. To make it work, the writing cheats by bending Tarou's established personality. He might not understand people very well, but misunderstanding the context of homophones is a bit of stretch for a Gary Stu.

The urinals at the public restroom where Tsuyoshi changed clothes were unnerving. Having urinals open to the outside with only some fencing for privacy feels so hostile.

this was a fun little episode. Inuzuka's not been directly involved in the out-of-suit stuff the way everyone else has, so he doesn't even realize how big a deal it is that Tarou gave his cooking a genuine compliment, and I love how they just breeze right past that moment like it's nothing. also loved at the end when Haruka's narrating and Kijino's all "shut uuuup! people finally forgot I was a MotW!"

if next week IS a recap episode, I'm gonna love if it somehow still ends up plot relevant.

like, how great would it be if the CLIP SHOW is how Inuzuka finds out about the rest of the team?

I had that prediction too. Inoue "How can I make this recap a must-see affair? I know, secrets revealed! Easy. Inoue out"

Well right now it's brilliant, so getting better in the 2nd half might make me die of happiness.

This is the first tokusatsu that I have seen where dark eye shadow did not mean that the character was evil.

Feral Jirou kind of makes a good point.

So Tsuyoshi gets to lose his job but get it back when the bad guy is beaten, just like Kyuusei Sentai Wakusaver Green?

In the clip show episode for next week will they have two new Sentai appearing in shadow?

Good question! I am hoping that in the second half:

* We find out who the big evil is in this show (if any). Will it be Mother, The Nouto, The Beastials, Jin, Kaito, Momoi, Natsumi/Miho, bad bunny? Or, maybe this alternate dimension is Dys-Topia where everyone is a latent MOTW.

* We get separate redemption arcs for the Nouto (if they are not big evil).

* We get a love interest for Haruka that causes the members of the Sentai Host Club to confront their true feelings.

* We get more awesomeness from the Jyuto Waifu.

* Tsubasa never finds out that his friends are also the sentai that he fights with.

* An episode where Haruka and Sononi are forced to become a dance team to beat a MOTW.

* Sonozo gets a Bishounen makeover.

* We find out the true identity of evil bunny suit mangaka.

* The producers throws in so many shoujo manga cliches that people start forgetting that this is super sentai.

* Sonoi and Momoi get a room.

* Momoi never gets a redemption arc and stays an obnoxious Gary Stu for the rest of the show.

Kaito saying that heroes don't get paid doesn't make sense with the history of super sentai. The Dekarangers weren't working for free.
