Zyuohger 28: Super Sentai's 1,999th Episode, Zyuland's History And The Epic Clash Of Two Anniversary Super Sentais!
Unlike Gokaiger vs. Gavan which was a VS. Movie, we're having a two part special within the show. It just reminds me of how Power Rangers did its yearly crossover starting with Power Rangers Lost Galaxy (where last season rangers guest in the next season in two episodes of the series than have them appear in a TV movie), how Kamen Rider Decade did its crossover with Shinkenger (but the concept was followed by two VS. Movies instead which is also a good alternative) and how Gavan had a two-part crossover with Go-Busters. Which reminds me why didn't they just give Kamen Rider Ghost a two part guest role in Zyuohger if they don't want to make a movie?
A bit of the history of Zyuland got featured and how it came to be. So Cetas this Zyuman (who's most likely dead considering the amount of time that may have passed, Zyuman time) has a recording showing some interesting bits and pieces that may answer the mysteries in the show. We're getting the Zyuoh Whale. The last time we saw a whale was in Go-onger though this one sort of makes more sense. A whale that can fly in Go-onger was pretty silly. In this case, we're getting a whale. From what I heard, Yamato will get the Whale power-up. Yamato does seem to be the focus of the show though red rangers that get so much attention isn't a new issue. We've had that in Maskman, Jetman, Zyuranger, Gingaman, Timeranger, Shinkenger, Kyoryuger and Ninninger since red is the star of the show.
typical use of convoluted and/or just unbelievably stupid plans. So how will Master Genis deal with Bulgay if ever we'll see a coup or something? I think it'd be a very intense battle, maybe Bulgay will temporarily take over then Master Genis will reveal himself to be not so easy to stop after all.
The ToQGers make a cameo as children. Considering that this episode was written by Junko Komura, I still want to rant out, "TOEI WHY DIDN'T YOU LET HER WRITE TOQGER INSTEAD OF YASUKO KOBAYASHI?!" Good thing that Yasuko Kobayashi isn't helping out in this series. As much as she's responsible for fan favorites but give her a break. The same goes for Hirohisa Soda and Toshiki Inoue . Naruhisa Arakawa may also be heading towards Burnout Ville soon enough and may need a long break. Komura's still getting started so let's see how good she'll get with this series.
What also appealed to me in this episode was the new Super Sentai Getter song. We had the last Super Sentai Getter song during Gokaiger and it's revived for Zyuohger. It's a nice way to pay tribute to that huge party for Super Sentai fans whether they be children, teenagers or adults. Super Sentai fans who are already parents are given the chance to dance with their children. Maybe grandpa and grandma are also in this party. I'm just crossing my fingers for the epic conclusion next week.
Sidenote, I also didn't want to write about the crossover until next week's episode. I figured out I might end up writing it in two parts. Hmmm... this has to be the longest Zyuohger update I've written. On the other hand, I hope Kamen Rider Ghost gets a good and epic ending!
