Kyuranger 44: Don Armage Is... ?!
This week's episode reveals who Don Armage is. Nope it's not one of them and I'm just using the Spaceballs screenshot for some weird humor. No, Don Armage is NOT Mel Brooks either. So who is he? Just read and find out!
Pega-San is back though why did it take the writers SO LONG before they brought him back? I thought he could have been used a couple more times. I guess, he could have a fallen, forgotten Bandai Merchandise. The downside has always been too many ideas can leave potential unmet huh? Pegasus then learns about Don Armage and everyone recalls their adventures. One of them is where they find out he's been cheating death one way or another.
Professor Anton in his brain form appears and tells them that there's a new invention called Dark Planesium. Why Professor Anton would still cooperate with Don Armage's plan is beyond me. He also reveals his new creation a Boss Worm though it seems it was just there to take up space.
It's power up time! The battle begins with some more new additional forms. IMO, this could have been done earlier or not? So what's this? An emergency toy sale measure? I wish that Hammy did her Sailor Moon tribute way earlier. Regardless, it's still a cool fight scene but I feel like it arrives too late.
Meanwhile, Tsurugi starts suffering from heart aches. Is this guy having some kind of disease or what? Is it a complication from being cryogenically frozen? I don't know but his life is certainly in danger. Looks like 300 years of aging may soon return to his body. I have a feeling that Tsurugi may soon join the list of deceased Super Sentai warriors.
Here's the kicker. Don Armage finally reveals his true identity. Tsurugi only had a faint clue to who Don Armage was. His former comrade? This soon reveals that Don Armage could be Cuervo. The use of "boku" which is a personal pronoun between comrades was used in Space 43. It's revealed that after Don Armage's supposed defeat that he may have entered into a wounded Cuervo's body.
Yup, we're seeing the Crow Form again this time in full detail. It looks pretty weird if you ask me. I kinda wish it were darker and more sinister looking though. He's probably in his strongest in this form.
What's not surprising is that Don Armage's plan for the Earth is that he plans to use it as a backup plan. They got rid of his Universal Bomb? Well, he's going to use the Earth as his new universal bomb. Don Armage may have been using Earth to fuel his operations since it may be the planet with the richest Planesium. It almost reminds me of what Peebo said in Bioman that the Earth is the greatest wonder in the Universe. In Flashman, Mess found it to be the best source of their genetic experiments. In this Universe, Don Armage already knew how the Earth is so rich in Planesium that he could use it as a bomb.
Also, we already have the trailer for the next Super Sentai series. We're already seeing the two groups clash thus making versus really a versus. I even wonder why in the world are Super Sentai Crossovers have VS. in them if both teams are actually cooperating? Also, why was the late 90s hit game X-Men vs. Street Fighter called as such when we see Cyclops and Ryu having an alliance at the beginning? Now only if I could get that clarified.
Next week, don't expect any episode updates on Kyuranger unless I feel like doing so. Instead, I may cram in the last four episodes in one huge review for the finale battle for the Universe!
