Ever heard the statement of be careful of what thou wishest for? It seems to be the moral lesson of today's Ryusoulger. Personally, I do miss the time when Super Sentai had a lot of moral lessons of the week back with Hirohisa Soda in the 1980s. Thankfully, we're actually getting it every now and then. Now, we're getting from RPG vibes too!
It's a balance of thought and action -- Yin and Yang. Melto as said is the intellectual person of the team. Usually, pink rangers (in many cases but not all) tend to be the smart ones but Asuna seems to be less of that considering she's physically the strongest member of the time. They try to work out a strategy but all Melto does is warn about not being prepared. Asuna says that all think and no do is useless. How are they going to resolve this?
This highlighteth a bit more of Banba as a guy who is a jerk with a heart of gold. He can't resist to help the old man who was knocked out. Something is not right if you ask me.
It's no surprise that Power Rangers Beast Morphers is now on hiatus thanks to Nickelodeon's sloppy scheduling. So what's the point of having a two-season split for Power Rangers? None! With that in mind I decided to write a new article where I'd talk about the fact that there's no summer break for Super Sentai (and in extension Kamen Rider). While Super Sentai does suffer from some issues such as writer/producer burnout, a mismatched writer/producer tandem (which I think happened during Ninninger) and maybe mixed audience reception (ex. Lupinranger vs. Patranger has lower than expected toy sales while possibly receiving praise from older audiences) but there's really no summer break!
Summer in the astronomical point of view (which is based on equinoxes) will occur on June 22, 2019 and end in September 23, 2019. Can you imagine what if Super Sentai decided to take a summer break rather than keep itself going as a yearlong show? It wouldn't be a good thing a…
It's last week's series and boy have I gotten a lot of things wrong. I'd say I was really wrong about last week's conclusion. It turns out that there's really some twist and turns that it's somewhat unpredictable. How does it turn out? Well, just thou needest to read on from this point onward!
The sisters Cardena and Fita are reunited. However, Melto being the brain that he is (and somehow I can't help but think of Sion from Timeranger in this scene) when he noticeth something suspicious. Cardena mentioneth about the Dino Knights or Kishinryu to Fita. I dunno is writer Junpei Yamaoka a Timeranger fan of sorts? Melto and Sion both have dyed hair and are the brains of the team.
There's the invisibility trick. Reptile in Mortal Kombat anyone? I always find the whole "The audience can see us but not the characters." gag somewhat funny. Remember whenever Invisible Girl went invisible yet the audience sees white lines to see where she is or when Re…
Now this post is subjected to what I'd call a MASSIVE reboot and man, this post was written so last December 7, 2008 and now it's September 3, 2015. Now it's already December 29, 2017 and I decided to add more to this entry. I thought I might edit some old posts and this is one of them. Gotta admit, gotta stay true to myself! Now it's time for a massive edit and I think it's time to do a revised list!
The pretty list...
Hikaru Katsuragi/Pink Five
Arguably she was my first Tokusatsu crush. If Americans had Kimberly, I had her dubbed over as Kimberly which I found rather... weird. I would admit that she was my first Tokusatsu crush.
After Bioman, Maskman was my second Sentai and for her, she's really a unique beauty but she really has all those prickly thorns. She's lovely as a rose but she's deadly as its thorns type of female character. Plus, she's the big sister or team heart of Maskman. I really cried when she was beaten up by Kotsuh…
Ever heard of the plot where it says, "Real Life Writes the Plot"? Well, it's already very common and plenty of them has happened. Super Sentai is no exception to the rule. Ever heard of the first Kamen Rider series when Hiroshi Fujioka injured himself during the stunt scenes that they brought in a second Kamen Rider as a result? Super Sentai has had those issues which would result to certain plots happening every now and then.
Replacement rangers during the older days of Super Sentai
Most of the old school Super Sentai may have had some better storywriting (at least for me) but it did have several plots that resulted to writing off. The first time I encountered was the writing off the original Yellow Four namely Mika Koizumi. I can't forget how I saw her die in the rather badly done dub of Bioman. There were many theories behind why Yuki Yajima left -- some say it was pay issues with Japan Action Club (which she worked part time somewhere else and suddenly left), an…
