Kyuranger 35: Jark Matter's Got Talent
Once again, thanks to Nihon Hero for most of my images used here.
This episode is pretty much entertaining. While I do find Kamen Rider Build's most recent episode kind of slow (all the while I still prefer new school Kamen Rider over new school Super Sentai even if I watch both) but this one is kind of entertaining for me. So what's the big deal?
A new infiltration job happens at the broadcasting station of Jark Matter. Yes, we see that Hammy, Spada, Naga, Tsurugi and Lucky decide to infiltrate Jark Matter's talent agency. Is it me or are Super Sentai villains usually stupid? I mean, it's obvious that these are the Kyurangers in disguise yet they get deceived like typical cartoon villains. The Indavers are THAT stupid not to see through the very obvious disguises. Man, you can't get good help these days from the villain manpower services can you?
We learn a bit of an alien singer known as Hoshi Minato. We can see that Hammy's past was she escaped from her planet in the Chameleon System. She met the lone singer Hoshi by chance and she was motivated to move forward. She suspects that he's under the control of Jark Matter.
We see this lady of a talent manager who's also a bitchy person. Hoshi has some weird doll which has something to do with the plot. She's been calling the shots and she seems to be the Universe' number one host. But who is she? Like Kris Aquino this lady calls the shots and is a big shot in the Jark Matter TV station. It's no surprise Jark Matter has taken over the airwaves and they're broadcasting fake news. Who knows they may even be telling everyone that the Kyurangers are evil and Don Armage is good.
Meanwhile, what's surprising OR not is that Don Armage isn't destroyed yet. After he's beaten, he reveals there's more of him or that he will always return. I have a feeling that the skeleton form we see is nothing more than a decoy. I guess like Grand Lord Crisis in Kamen Rider Black RX or Demon King Psycho in Sharivan - he's got the ability to use host bodies. Grand Lord Crisis used Tasmader as an extension of himself and Demon King Psycho used Psychorror as an extension of himself. It looks like Don Armage is using several host bodies or like Sigma in Megaman X he refuses to die so easily.
Next week the Kyurangers are traveling to the Planet Russ. Hopefully, this will help us understand why Lucky's personality became like that. We would learn why Lucky flew away from that planet. I just hope this will add something new and fresh to the series.
