Kyuranger 22: The Battle Against Jark Matter's Historical Revisionism
Is it a coincidence or done on purpose that this week's Kyuranger is on historical revisionism? Today is the 2nd SONA of President Rodrigo R. Duterte. Kyuranger may be a Japanese show but it's funny how Filipinos may actually be given a wake-up call against historical revisionism. With Japan and the Philippines as important allies let this review rip off the Empire of Aquino!
In this week's Kyuranger, we see the problem of historical revisionism is done throughout the Space Shogunate. They teach everyone that Don Armage is the new hero and one could view the students as Yellowtards. In Star Wars, these would be the Imperial academies that promote the dark side. In real life, the Philippines is full of schools that teach the Yellow Propaganda. The monster of the week is name Manavil. Shoot, shouldn't they have named him Marbobo instead? XD
A power-up known as the Hercules Globe. Okay, I'm not finding this joke on Hammy to be funny. She could have just gained super strength without the bad joke. Anyway, the Kyurangers were trying to stop a Consumarz from destroying the Earth. It's nice to think how Hammy gets to use her brain and brawn in one episode.
Gigant Houou reveals itself to be the latest mecha of the show. I love its cool rocket ship/phoenix hybrid design. What's impressive is how the burning flame sword is used once again. What disappointed me back in 2009 is that Shinkenger didn't try to combine both real flames and CGI flames. It was impressive to have some real flames before the CGI flames are used for the rest of the fight. It's always nice to combine both old school and new school methods whenever it's possible.
Aquino Empire conspiracy?
