My Thoughts On Zyuohger Episodes 13-15 And Some Nostalgic Factors In Them

So as always, I'm beaten by other sites like Dryed Mangoez and UkiyaSeed in making episode reviews. Plus, I doubt it I really can devote myself to episode reviews but I may give "updates" or more importantly my opinions on newer stuff. I still am waiting for the possible sixth ranger, new mecha, new enemies, etc. to arrive before I start giving Zyuohger updates.

Right now, going to make a three episode recap of episodes 13-15. To deviate a bit from the topic, it seems to be that every time it's an anniversary or something there's always that tendency to be like "It's a kid's show but let's give a bit of something of nostalgia for older fans in some way." It can be a good or bad thing. Gaoranger, Boukenger and Gokaiger all did their part in trying to be new to children but appeal to older fans of Super Sentai at the same time.

Super Sentai Antagonists I Find To Be That Beloved And/Or Overrated By Fans

Boo! Hiss! Get your tomatoes, rotten eggs and all you can throw at these menacing figures ready! Looks like we've got the bad guys and girls you just love to hate. Moving on, here's some Super Sentai and Power Rangers villains I believe got so iconic. I felt like Super Sentai fans really will always remember how they love to hate these villains.

Black Cross Fuehrer

So we have him in Goranger. Then years later, he reappears in Gokaiger Hero 199 Battle as the main villain. So he reappears causing havoc that it requires other 34 Super Sentai powers to defeat this guy. I felt like he's Super Sentai's own version of Sosai X/Sosai Z from Gatchaman. I guess nobody can still forget the granddaddy of Super Sentai big bads huh?

Hideo Kageyama/Doctor Man

He's a cool villain with the Zoids-villain appearance. He was once a scientist with a family but his own personal ambitions put him at odds against his wife. While experimenting on himself, he grows old pretty fast so he quickly turned himself into a cyborg. His struggle was within himself because he felt like his human self was something to be ashamed of. Later, he sought to bring a successor so he created the robot Prince and later sought to get his son Shuichi but ended up in a bad conflict. He represents the idea of robotics gone wrong as portrayed with his long time rivalry with Dr. Shibata/Shinichiro Gou. His genius also allowed him to study Balzion so well he was able to find other ways to use the Anti-Bio technology using his creation King Megas which allowed him to find the secret Bio Base.

Farrah Cat

Perhaps many may realize her actress was also known as "Cynthia Luster" and that she's Yukari Oshima. During that time, I guess a lot children still remember the time Oshima kicked the asses of the Biomen. She's probably still the most overrated catwoman of all time.

Super Sentai Protagonists I Find To Be That Beloved And/Or Overrated By Fans

While I haven't seen all Super Sentai series and known the fandom that well either to make a judgment but I felt like making this post about beloved Super Sentai protagonists. So here's me taking a deep breath. Here goes nothing with my views plus it's still an incomplete list. I do hope you can enjoy this list and feel free to disagree in some parts.

Tyuyoshi Kaijo/Aka Ranger

The very first Super Sentai red ranger ever. I've given a thought that maybe, the people behind Gokaiger were glad that he volunteered to make a guest role in the Hero 199 Movie. I guess a lot of people still consider him to be a true legend.

Banba Soukichi/Big One

So where do I start? While I haven't seen much of JAKQ but he's become a fan favorite. Plus he's played by the legendary Hiroshi Miyauchi. Miyauchi played henshin roles in Goranger, JAKQ, Zubat and Kamen Rider V3. He was also the team mentors of Winspector, Solbrain, Exceedraft (Commander Masaki) and Ohranger (Chief Miura).
