Whoever decided to use that as the thread title deserves a cookie.

I think most of us agree that Raptor is quite undeveloped. Many are just saying that maybe she's not useless to the team as we originally thought, where small bits are there showing how she's helping the team outside of the suit. Of course that makes her hero origin wash out a bit, but overall she has shown her general usefuleness to the team.

I also agree that there are 12 main team members now than 9. There is no discrimination (in theory) on how they are picked (except that Red almost always is there) and are almost always present in the show (except for Kotaro as a kid who needs breaks). I think they did not expect Shou and Kotaro to be that popular that they elevated their position to be more regular (probably after the Scorpio Arc, when Kotaro was away), although we expected Shou to act like Doggie/Torin being the commander and all so he's going to be close to a regular. Legends can be changed, and I think we should consider Kotaro and Shou being a core rather than Raptor being relegated (although yes, her ranger appearance average needs to be bumped up a bit).

I'm still waiting for "Kyuranger the Flame Thrower". May as well stick with my reliable Googleheimer toy.

There's no question that Raptor is underutilized and perhaps not getting enough attention but at the very least I'm kept entertained and engaged. The story always feels like it's moving and never do I feel horrendously bored, which unfortunately I can't say the same for the past couple of Sentai seasons.

I think at this point, a good portion of us are pretty content with what we have and now I think we're at this point where we're just honing on smaller details, or screaming for justice for lack of character development. With maybe around 15-16 episodes left, I think there's still more than enough time to flesh out the full story in whole (even if some ppl might get, or already, the shaft on character development)

Am I the only one who though the whole 'the space ship is part of the team' thing seems really forced and stupid and did nothing for Raptor's character?

I would assume you're not the only one, but I disagree with you lol. This was brought up early on in the show, and built up to this point.

Orion being sentient was hinted ages ago when Raptor was shown talking to him and calling him ojisan or something and he responded. It was back when we still expected something from Orion, like a hidden combination mode and such, lol.

Yeah. This was the first Sentai I really followed (after the years I was here, which from what I see was since Ninninger, although I remembered lurking here even before that) and I wonder what are the most talked about Sentai here in RB. We're still 2/3 of the way so this could still fill up. Kyuranger -- for its ups and downs -- has a lot talk about just by the virtue of having 12 rangers and more villains to talk about.

I assume it will. He's in control of the powers now. I hope the evil version does.

It'll appear again; I just hope it's somewhat regularly and not once or twice more.

Sounds to me like there's some conflict with Raptors role in the show as the pilot and her position on the team as a core member. If Raptor was the pilot br a designated extra ranger would there be so many complaints? IMO, no one is an extra ranger in this show. Everyone's either always around or split up and that's even with core memebers. Hell, Champs currently not in the picture. Kyuranger is basically three trios with two additionals(Shou and Kotaro) and a sixth(Tsurugi). I get the argument that she's one of the nine legendary saviours but it's not she's the only one who hasn't gotten their moment or time to shine..
Yeah that's what I've been saying. Ranger designations don't matter in this show. All 12 rangers are apart of the main cast, which is why I believe, if anything, Shou and Kotaro are additions to the core team the same way GekiViolet & GekiChopper are, or the Gouraigers and whatnot. If Shou, Kotaro & Tsurugi aren't part of the main cast, don't appear almost every episode, then there'd be a problem, but all 12 are active main members of the team. We can debate the whole 9 legendary saviours thing all we want, but at the end of the day it's still just a legend we know nothing about, and it could still just be that the 'core 9' defeat the big bad.
