So Yasuko Kobayashi Will Write Tokkyuger and More!

Yasuko Kobayashi whose writing style usually goes from really good, entertaining or passable you have to admit that she might still be a great talent to the Tokusatsu genre though I think she should really try writing J-Drama or any fantasy related series.  So far, I think she is still better than her frequent tandem partner Toshiki Inoue.  So far we know her writings are Seijuu Sentai Gingaman (perhaps her best work), Mirai Sentai Timeranger (perhaps another masterpiece and I guess Judd Lynn the head writer of Lost Galaxy and Time Force was probably a fan of her works), Kamen Rider Ryuki, Kamen Rider OOO, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger and Pretty Guardian Sailormoon.  She had also served as a sub-writer for Megaranger and Boukenger (now only IF she were the head writer, the series might be better) where she wrote pretty decent episodes.

Yasuko Kobayashi will be working together with producer Takaaki Utsunomiya which makes me think he was the producer of both Shinkenger and Gokaiger, both seasons having their own charm.  In the case of Gokaiger, its head writer was Naruhisa Arakawa though I wish he will serve as sub-writer here.  Hmmm I dunno if Toshiki Inoue will work with Yasuko Kobayashi again considering that the two seem to ahve a lot of common in their writing styles whether the darker and edgier against the lighter and softer.  But knowing her sense of humor can go wrong at times (like do check Kamen Rider OOO has some rather poor attempt to be funny moments with Ankh, sometimes Momotaros in Kamen Rider Den-O is just so annoying or the whole Hiromu is scared of chickens in Gobusters) but she has also done some good humor with Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.

Now only time will tell on what awaits this Super Sentai because I'm not all that excited for it. =P  Other than that, I'll write about other stuff about older Super Sentai when I can.


  1. As much of a disappointment as Gobuster was and Kobayashi was behind the writing too. You can tell by the blatent character development!!!
    Tokkugers alone looks rancid with the ugly Helmut's and cheap looking outfits. If Kobayashi continues to do a weak ass job in writing. This show will be a predictable failure!!!
