Re: Power Rangers

carnival mode is awesome. Kyoryuger has really been great so far. unlike Go-Busters, where i felt it was a chore to watch each episode.

Re: Power Rangers

Agreed with you, fellow Praetor. (Times like this make me wish I'd stayed Praetor Neral. Almost.)

Go-Busters was horrifically boring and I nearly stopped watching partway through. Hiroya Matsumoto's Gold was all that kept me in. Part of the charm of super sentai is the campiness. The Kyoryuger characters are bigger than life and easily likeable.

Gold and Silver were the two that kept me watching that series. i felt the first dozen or so episodes were pretty good...but i just wasn't interested in the villains. felt like the show peaked when they defeated Messiah. Enter and Escape just couldn't carry that weight.

Re: Power Rangers

Enter and Escape did indeed stink, but the main three were even worse to me.

What I find disappointing is that they did do lots of interesting, cool things - such as the realistic depiction of hangaring and maintenance of the mecha, and other logistical aspects. For me, it wasn't that at all that made the series such a disappointment.

I think one explanation for that was that all of the main six are written in the mold of the hero protagonist.

Re: Power Rangers

I don't follow. You mean the Kyoryougers are all bigger than life like Red?

Re: Power Rangers

Is everyone talking about Super Sentai because the latest new episode of Megaforce was just too stupid to be worth acknowledging? Because it was really, really stupid. How many more of these lame standalone episodes do we have to sit through before the Legend War/return of old Rangers stuff starts happening?

Re: Power Rangers

For the record, I did enjoy Go-Busters start to finish. Then again, I really, really liked SPD, more than Dekaranger even. I'm just a sucker for Sentai series that try to be more serious than Sentai generally tries to be. :P

Now, about about that Kamen Rider these days! I was just in Japan and enjoyed the stuff live, including a bunch of promos for a Kamen Rider with an... orange... on his head? Gotta love strange those themes sometimes!

Let's see, this was episode 12 out of 20 this season so there will be either 7 or 8 more stupid episodes before we get to the good stuff, dependinng on whether they put the legend war at the end of this season's finale or if it happens during next season's premier.
Megaforce is awful and boring, Super Sentai is just more exciting (not always but it has been years since Power Rangers didn't stink), Kyoryuger is a good series, very entertaining, you should check it out.

Ah, Kamen Rider Gaim with its fruit and samurai theme ... and because that wasn't strange enough they also threw street dancing in. I like that they use several riders this season, the main rider/secondary rider set-up was getting old.
I'm most excited for strawberry arms because strawberries are the best.

Giant fruits are the best. I always wanted a giant strawberry.

RPM was the best Power Rangers has ever been, and that was just four years ago, I think. Since then, since Saban got the rights back, we've only had Samurai/Super Samurai and Megaforce, which have both been quite lame.


Kyoryuger is a good series, very entertaining, you should check it out.
I have no idea how I could do that.

Re: Power Rangers

I've seen rumours that we won't see The Legend War until next year sometime? As Takeru stated possible either as the season finale or next season premier.
