My Guilty Pleasures on Super Sentai Viewing

Image
So I'd like to share my own guilty pleasures on why I would watch Super Sentai and these reasons can be VERY stupid because I find myself not enjoying the cake and just the icing.  So okay, let's move on and show what icing there is...


It's about the girls that sometimes makes me want to watch Super Sentai even as an adult.  It's pretty shallow yes, but sometimes I end up just sticking around a season despite some flaws (weak middle or nonsensical plots) all due to the girl.  For example, I didn't really mind too much Shinkenger had some weaker points because I was too glued on Mako.  Or I even would say I've been guilty of appreciating Dairanger's Lin over the rest of what really makes the series stand out.


Music happens to be another guilt trip for me.  It's like how I may have some thoughts like Zyuranger isnt that great but I hang through it because of its musical score and themes.  For Dairanger, there are times I end up getting hooked more on the …

Super Sentai Team that Got Framed...

Image
Here are the Sentai groups that got framed by the enemies namely...


Dai Sentai Goggle V- The Deathdark managed to create evil clones of the Goggle V to destroy their reputation known as the Deathdark V.  However they were visually distinguisable.


Chikyu Sentai Fiveman- When Meadow got really angry and turned red (actually Vulgyre caused his illusion to do that!), Chevalier released the Leech-Butterfly Jin to absorb the Fivemen's powers.  The Galaxy Sentai Gingaman (Galaxy Men) got the Fiveman powers and used them to attack the city.  Remi's gutsy move against them revealed the whole fraud scheme.


Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger- After Burai died and before the return of Dai Satan, the Zyurangers had to deal with Dora Mirage who not only replicated the Zyurangers in their suits but also imitated civilians and attacked the civilian Zyurangers to frame them up.  I considered this the best frame up ever with two schemes at once.  

Missed any?  Corrections?  Let me know.

Is Basco Returning for Gobusters vs. Gokaiger?

Image
It seems to be floating around that Kei Hosogai will resume his role as Basco to whom will always be in my favorite villains list.  So probably he'll get a new form, maybe even go from calculating to insane, I don't know really.  But hopefully, Basco will make another appearance in Gobusters vs. Gokaiger.

Here's another late tribute to a great group of cosplayers who have promoted Gokaiger through cosplaying.  I just love their costumes and all.
Gokai Blue's getting suave...

Promotional photoshop?  Looks good to me.


Prepare to taste our blades...

Hmmm... I wonder what the girls are thinking?
This guy was thankful that he was saved from the Zangyacks...

2009 Hero Con Shinkenger Group Cosplaying in the Philippines

Image
Three years ago, there was this Shinkenger cosplaying group which happened to be the same year.  Here are some true Tokusatsu Pinoy fans who are somehow still in touch with the Super Sentai spirit although these days, I'm more into Chinese drama and Japanese drama... now enjoy!

Will Some Super Hero Sentai Mentors Assemble?

I have read from Orends Range that it seems that these Sentai mentors will appear in Gobuster vs. Gokaiger and I'm using their older pictures...

Super Hero Taisen Review

Image
I had just finished viewing Super Hero Taisen and seriously, I'll really write a review that's really what I'd call a series of mixed emotions that came along the way. At first, I was pretty excited at the concept of Super Sentai and Kamen Riders joining together, Decade's crossover with Shinkenger succeeded where Saban's Mashed Rider failed but apparently this film is what I'd call as if Shoji Yonemura really teaming up with a bunch of morons to write this and for Shinichiro Shirakura, he just wants to make everything look cool when in fact it's nothing more than childish fan wars in the beginning. This piece of trash is what I'd call something Patrick Star would write, yes it is indeed written by Patrick Star!

Nice aesthetics, nice concepts but eventually it's ruined by bad writing to a huge extent! It's just like Operation Overdrive's got a nice concept of the Corona Aurora but ends up being one of the worst seasons because of the way it…
