The Problem Of Having The Gokaiger Hype!

It's five years after Gokaiger and I'm probably enjoying Zyuohger more than Gokaiger. Now I'd like to readdress the Gokaiger Hype. I have the feeling that Gokaiger ends up as another overrated Super Sentai season even after five years. I'm afraid that some people are probably too stuck with the Gokaiger hype, they think it's the best Super Sentai season ever and the reasons aren't even valid. It's okay to really love Gokaiger but the problem is when you're stuck with the Gokaiger hype. What do I mean by the Gokaiger hype? I would classify it as the attitude that you still think it's the best and that it may also include the attitude you think you know everything about Super Sentai just because you saw it from start to end. 

Why is it the best Super Sentai season ever for some people? I'm just speculating and I don't claim that I have the answers. One possible reason might be because the think that Gokaiger's the best because the whole team transformed into the other Super Sentai seasons without considering the writing and production involved to what makes it great. It was a cool nostalgia laced season with all the guest stars and all but I don't think it's that great. I personally feel like the Gokaigers are relying too much on the 34 powers from the other times. It's a huge difference from the Gaorangers, Boukengers and Zyuohgers who are anniversary Super Sentai teams but they're somehow standing on their own and not on other Super Sentai seasons. Yamato Kazakiri may be an eagle swordsman but I don't think he'll really need to get the "greater power" from Takayuki Hiba and Gaku Washio. It'd be nice to see both of them become guest stars but maybe only to give him encouragement, not to unlock some greater power because it's not needed. Fortunately, some Gokaiger fans have a good defense for liking Gokaiger that much and not go through the shallow reasons.

Just because you've watched Gokaiger doesn't mean that you've already become an expert in Super Sentai. Gokaiger's just the tip of the iceberg! What about all the other 34 Super Sentai seasons that came before it? Just because there was a tribute episode to a certain Super Sentai season doesn't mean you already *TA-DAN* knew everything about that season. Those were tribute episodes and they had a running time of around 24 something minutes and seconds. Did that episode make you an expert? No, no and absolutely not. That was a tribute episode for a Super Sentai in the past! If Gokaiger showed you all the episodes from its 34 predecessors then I don't know when Gokaiger is going to end. We wouldn't even be seeing Zyuohger right now!

Let's take a good example of the Gokaiger episode with the Dairanger tribute episode. It was a Dairanger tribute episode. Did the whole episode teach you everything about Dairanger? Absolutely not! Gai Ikari only met Ryou and while he's the main hero of Dairanger he's not even the whole topic of Dairanger! The episode didn't mention anything about the other Dairangers, the Gorma or any event. It was more of Ryou trying to get Gai Ikari away from feeling down and reviving his fighting spirit. It never told us everything we need to know about Dairanger. The same goes did Ninninger's episode with Jiraiya tell you everything you needed to know about Jiraiya? It certainly didn't. But it certainly made me want to see Jiraiya! Did Kamen Rider Ghost's appearance in Zyuohger tell you everything about the show? You have to watch Kamen Rider Ghost to learn more about it. And if let's say Gaku Washio and Takayuki Hiba guest starred in Zyuohgers you'll still need to watch Gaoranger and Sun Vulcan! It's because Yamato won't tell you everything about Sun Vulcan and Gaoranger or Zyuohger will end up getting overly extended to the point of absurdity.

Guess what? If you need to know more about all the 34 Super Sentai seasons then watch all the other Super Sentai seasons before it! Right now, I'm just in a journey of watching both older and newer Super Sentai. I've watched certain series from start to end and I'm still watching whatever's available from fan subbing groups. Gokaiger never told me why this and that happened. I had to watch from the 34 previous Super Sentai series. I've seen some episodes of Dynaman, Changeman and Flashman and I'm still barely knowing anything about them. I knew how some events happened in the end but I still need to watch the in-between because I'm still missing a lot. All I can say is you may go ahead and love Gokaiger but don't think you've become an expert after watching it.

Comments

  1. 5 years after watching Gokaiger, the show is still my favorite sentai but I never came off after watching the show feeling as if I knew everything about sentai. I may be a bit biased but Gokaiger was my first sentai and I honestly wouldn't have any interest watching other super sentai if it wasn't for the show.

    I still have a bit of Gokai hype but I also knew how to move on and appreciate the past and current shows also. The anniversary aspect for Gokaiger such as the Gokai changes and cameos was nice but that's not my reason as to why I liked the show as many folks in fandom automatically perceived people who dares love the show thinks. The story (which there was actual was one)and the characters made the show for me and the cast did an amazing job giving them distinct personalities and traits. I also appreciate the show even more for going up and beyond it's original intentions for the show after the Tsunami and Earthquake that year to cheer up the children after that deadly devastation. I could see why folks may view Gokaiger as over-hyped or overrated but that could be said to any show that's popular including ones from a certain writer who I feel is severely overrated.

    2. Honestly, you're missing the point. It's not about innovation but more on qua, execution, etc.) lity (writing. And for the record, you're more like a selective and subjective moron as well. Because you all go like this as always:

      "I love to eat SHIT and there's nothing you can do about it!"

      Unfortunately for you, you're just here to whine bitch and moan. And please, you're more of a weaboo yourself...

    3. Seriously you are Seantard hiding on this poser card, and giving back what I'm saying because you make more lamest excuses. You poser account is eating shit right now because you can't accept changes. Create more poser accounts you are more lame,whine, bitch,brat,backward, old fashioned, moan and dork yourself. It's all about execution? well you are the real and more selective and subjective moron who can't accept changes. It's on the execution? Zyuohger is making better right now, Kyoryuger have a biggest sales, ToQGer won an award, Gokaiger exceed the best anniversary series, they give tribute however the Gokaigers do it their own. Just get your facts straight Seantard's poser account!!! hahaha it's really fun I'm talking to a imbecile coward like you.

    4. @ryuugay:

      For the record, I'm not Seaboard and you're facing a different person.

      Everything you've said is not just nonsense but also pure bias and trollish with incessant name-calling. Not to mention that you're acting like a douche who loves to shove your opinions on everyone's mouths.

      Well, I can say that Zyuohger is currently so-so, Kyoryuger has the biggest sales yet it has crappy writing, and Gokaiger is very good anniversary show yet it also suffered from its own flaws.

      Your points are utterly opinionated. So are you telling me that TROLLING is fun? Be my guest.

  3. I watch all this old school Tokusatsu before I watch the present, while you are moving backwards. My question is "Are you updated about the latest in Tokusatsu series? You are very imbecile about innovation"

    1. Or maybe you never realized that the new ones are actually moving backwards when it comes to writing and execution.

      And yes, he's updated about the latest Toku. But news flash: he's being critical about it. You're more imbecilic since you have what we call selective thinking. And if you're not an imbecile, please correct you're goddamn grammar.

      Delete
    2. Writing and execution? I don't find any backwards about that. You want to recyle the same old shit? and you are just being critical? You are the not writer imbecile dork. Fix your goddamn grammar poser imbecile it's a big headache for us nowadays that you are whining like a old retard brat. The reason for this word critical just because you can't accept the story and development of Toei nowadays, you are so prehistoric imbecile that you can't used modernized material and only sticking of using stones, how pathetic hahaha.

      Delete
    3. I'm now waiting for Zyuohger for exceeding the big expectation being the best Super Sentai series. To be honest Boukenger for me is the least anniversary series for me because it doesn't look like an anniversary same to the crossover.

      Delete
    4. ^You have no problems is because you're utterly BIASED. If someone here needs fixing grammar here then it's you, son.

      I ain't whining yet you're the one who always did that. I'm being critical because not all Sentai are better or perfect; there are good and bad seasons. And oh, I know what Toei does nowadays: they're focusing more on selling toys/merchandise and story is just secondary to them.

      You're only good on stroking your own ego. And that makes you even pathetic.

    5. Wow I'm talking to an egocentric dumbass who know everything but your brain is same to amoebas. I'm stroking my ego? or I'll already break your ego into dust how imbecile you are dork.

    6. ^Utterly biased and utterly opinionated. You're accusing me of being an egocentric dumbass yet you fit more on that description due to your comments. It's evident, son.

    7. You are utterly imbecile, biased and oinionated same to Seantard's Super Bootleg Blog.

    8. ^You're more referring on yourself, then. And what's worse is that you didn't even admit it being one.

  4. I don't think Gokaiger was the best sentai season,I just loved the series and really hold it up as my one of my favorite TV series ever. I don't know who used Gokaiger as the barometer of knowledge for all Sentai, but not me

    The best Sentai season to me is either Dairanger, Jetman(though I haven't seen it yet, I can tell it was of high quality in story, action, and characters) or Gekiranger. Gokaiger is heavily flawed, as a fan I can admit that,but I overlooked its faults cause of chsractes like Captain Marvelous, Joe, Basco,or episodes like the Gekiranger tribute,Boukenger tribute, and when Joe used the five sword style as examples. I loved the attitudes of the Gokaigers, how they did what they want and didn't care about the opinions of others. Their constant courage and will to never give up even in the face of an inevitable defeat

    I'd never say Gokaiger did a perfect job as an anniversary season but I know 2 things for sure:
    1) they did a better job that Saban and Super Megaforce, a travesty if a show, even for kids
    2) I enjoyed every minute of the series and rewatch it daily

      Sean Akizuki and everybody else that is a blogger don't know shit and should walk away from Sentai and Tokusatsu forever.

      Only RYUUSEIWORD is allow to watch and discuss and be heard by the world. Whoopydeedoo!!!!!!

  8. I also do like Gokaiger. If you think I liked the show because of the past Sentai appearance, I would tell you more reason :
    1. Pirate action is really exciting. Their action is supposedly free style, just doing what they want.
    2. The character, a captain, sword man, thief, inability professor and a princess make a colorful team. Beside, the story is also a comedy.
    However, the weakness of the series is Gokai Silver, the most annoying person. And the mecha design is also lame. There are only 5 external mecha provided from past Sentai's power.
