Belated Episode Reviews for Gokaiger 40-41

So far Gokaiger has been quite behind me.  Heh heh.  Anyway, I'd like to share my thoughts on Gokaiger episodes 40-41...

Episode 40...

The whole episode focuses on Domon's return. So he's been too kind to make an appearance.

It was nice to have the whole episode inserted in Goseiger vs. Shinkenger.  It was pretty cool to explain how the Gokaigers appeared in the movie.

It was nice to have a Timeranger tribute.

This is ONE big loophole in Timeranger that's bugging me until now.  It bugs me more than Ransik's sudden change of heart in the end in Time Force or where Lila is now in Timeranger.  Why?  How could a man from the future 1,000 years later ever produce a child with a woman from the present?!  Well I'm reminded of Andy Lau's film with Barbie Xu "Future X Cop" now which IMO made more sense than the Timeranger loophole concerning Domon's son who is later named Mirai.

Certainly tears filled the eyes of Domon in the end as a result of star-crossed love.  So I did think what if frequent time travels caused the Sentai timeline to corrode on certain occasions and when the whole event is over, everything returns back to normal?!

Episode 41...

After the death of Warz Gill the crown prince, the evil emperor of a father, Akudosu Gill finally shows up after some time speculating how he looked like.  Well like father, like son.  But surprisingly, he does somehow care for his son by having Damarasu by being fired.  If I were him, I'd rather have that guy executed! Damarasu then joins Basco to Joloika.  The emperor arrives... imperial march theme please!

It was a nice Ahim de Famille episode.  I'm kinda reminded of Star Wars here- Princess Leia and the destruction of Alderaan is what I remember except the destruction of her planet was not instantaneous.

Despite being a princess, she can fight.  Yeah.  Now I see more of a warrior spirit in her.  Boy I want to rewatch Star Wars trilogy anytime!  On the other hand, there's much cliche that's running through interplanetary destruction with space aliens from Sentai.  Hmmm... Zangyack must have fought a lot of enemies including Vyram too!


  1. Sean, I'm not sure if you actually watched Timeranger. Because that woman is Honami, who Domon fell in love with during the series, when he was in the year 2000. And things obviously got physical. At the end of the series, Honami was seen with a baby--Domon's baby. I don't understand how you find that confusing.

  2. @ThatChick- Hi! Well I know something physical but still, it left me confusing to how time travel didn't restrict that function. Oh boy. Well this is just fiction after all.

  3. I'm actually surprised you mentioned Future Cops. It's a hilarious movie that doesn't make any sense, but damn isn't it fun to watch.

    And are you talking about Gokaiger episodes or Star Wars and Future Cops this way? We've got a lot of cases about 'Princess lost her homeland, parents killed in front of them', it's a cliche and Star Wars and Gokaiger aren't the only one who did that

  4. I don't think the presence of Mirai is a loophole, since it doesn't contradict anything. Makes perfect sense to me. And it's awesome that Honami returned.

  5. in my opinion, ahim may also share some similarities with farla/allura from golion/voltron force in a sense that ahim and farla/allura are princesses who later became part of their respective teams, even becoming subordinates to their teammates in red

  6. They could have brought Kuru Asami back so that they can show what happened to Lila. But, never mind.
