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.
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.
