Ryusoulger Episode 14: The Golden Knight
Well, the summer episodes of Ryusoulger (and there's NO SUMMER BREAK) has officially started. Does it look like we're getting a beach episode soon? It's the time to introduce Ryusoul Gold the sixth member. I remembered one of Kyoryuger's weak points (that is for me) was that the sixth ranger appeared too early. I was expecting him to appear with at least episode 17 or something. But it looks like we're getting an arc before he officially joins the team!
The beginning of the episode has a summer transition going on or is it? A new villain named Gachireus appears to where the Druidons are currently hiding. This causes Wizeru to disappear -- leaving Creon with a newer, crueler higher up! Did Gachireus got sent by a higher-up we are yet to see and yet to reveal himself or herself?
The Ryusoulgers discuss the legend of Urashima Taro. The story was a Japanese fisherman who ended in Ryugu Castle for a long time. Time ran slower so when he returned back to our world -- he discovered everything was new. Inside that box that he got was the time he was in the castle. What's interesting is that it looks like Ryugu Castle is part of Ryusoulger's folklore! Hmmm... I suddenly remembered those episodes in Space Sheriff Gavan and Chodenshi Bioman that paid tribute to the same story!
Kanaro appears in search of a bride. His weirdness doesn't fit into the human world. Also, isn't there a generation gap between Ryusoul Tribe members and normal humans? Koh did state he's 209 years old in human years. So how long is a childhood for the Ryusoulgers? I'd assume they spent 120 years before they became teenagers at 130. I guess that's what Kanaro fails to realize that fitting into a different world where time runs faster is hard to do.
the prime minister in the last episode -- there's possibly more members of the Ryusoul Tribe. The prime minister's appearance was almost a foreshadowing of the next episode!
Meanwhile, Creon is cruelly forced to leak out his disgusting slime into buckets. Gachileus himself is planning to create plenty more Menasaurs with the same capability. I guess he's been sent by whoever his higher-ups are, right? The plan would do but he could've sent some of the footsoldiers to spill the slime into Tokyo's water supply if you ask me!
Kanaro does his entrance with the following. A jumping kick out-of-suit to hit the monster? Check! Making a speech? Check! Then he reveals his power as Ryusoul Gold. He just wants to give Ayane her happiness back. He does defeat the monster making his first effective debut. We've got new Bandai merchandise now!
Creon gets exhausted and remembers his moments with his two previous superiors. At this point, I just feel sorry for him even if he's the main cause of miseries by creating Menasaurs out of bad situations. The plan could've worked better though IF Gachileus ordered some footsoldiers to dump it into the water supply.
Gachileus makes his menacing appearance towards the Ryusoulgers. I have a feeling that both Kanaro and Gachileus have a personal rivalry going on. Kanaro just sounds so stubborn about opening up. It looks like this is part one out of a few episodes that I may call as the Ryusoul Gold Arc!
