Giving My Early Thoughts On Zyuoh The World
The hero appears to be almost a tribute to Gai Ikari's fusion of the Go-on Gold and Go-on Silver keys. Half of him is gold and half of him is silver. It was done five seasons ago with Gokaiger so I guess there's some anniversary. But he's also empowered by three beasts and two out of three throw back to Shirogane/Gao Silver. Gao Silver's animal icons were wolf, alligator and hammerhead shark. Zyuoh The World has wolf, alligator and well a rhino. In Gaoranger, Gao Rhino was used to redeem the Gao Hunter from Rouki's curse. Hmmm... it's already Gaoranger's 15th anniversary now and the show has the wild animal theme attached to it. While I felt the mecha department wasn't good but the show manages to upgrade Gaoranger's animal concepts since the Zyuohgers' beast modes weren't in Gaoranger. I guess Zyuoh the World seeks to improve Shirogane/Gao Silver's concept in its own way.
Burai fight the Zyurangers. We had Shirogane possessed by Rouki's spirit prior to joining the current day Gaorangers. We had Eiji struggling with his Ashu half and technically, he fought the Boukengers before becoming Bouken Silver. Hmmm... I just mentioned my favorites from the shows I just mentioned. For Abaranger, we have the appearance of Mikoto Nakadai who was more of an evil ranger and became a last minute sixth ranger. So how's Zyuoh The World going to turn out? I'll just wait and see.
