It'll be a bit too much for me, especially once we get into the later series where the amount of mechas start to quadruple.

I think what hurts Live Robo the most is the coloring: the helmet and the colors outside the prominence of Land Lion just hurt is horribly. (as much as I hate this season, Land Lion is beautiful and really the biggest and most important thing to come from this season for the franchise) Super Live Robo I think fixes some of that with the colors of Live Boxer at least making it appear a bit more civil than the mess of it's previous form.

@yami: good to see you look at some of the other pre-Zyu series that really aren't as notable. But yeah, Bioman is done and it's out there so...(but hey, if you want to watch something, do it.)

I don't think it would be too much.

How about another mecha lover divides up the work for speed? It's just posting the images and your opinion, which is followed by others'.

Part of the process for these post is that I write them out over the course of the week rather than all at once. Helps to simmer my thoughts a bit.

Not entirely sure how that would work since this is more of a personal project of mine.

The thing about these post is that they are techinically reposts. I already have them posted on another site for about a week prior to when I repost them here.

10 episodes into Zyuohger and I have a Question. Each episode has the whole "40th anniversary" thing. Is there actually anything special about the anniversary? I don't remember hearing about this season. I know Gokaiger was such a huge anniversary season so curious about the 40th

The appearance of Kamen Rider Ghost was so random. I know nothing about Kamen Rider but after that and Kamen Rider Decade in Shinkenger I'm definitely interested

I like the fact that they actually use their various senses as a part of the story. They fought the monster that made people go crazy by blasting the horn on his shoulder and Sela was extremely vulnerable and then Leo beat him with his roar. Tusk's sense of smell screwed him over in the episode where a fragrance trapped them in a nightmare

I really like the Gorilla transformation. I hope there's more

I compared it to Power Rangers Wild Force in an earlier post and I just realized it's the same animals minus the Green Ranger. You got a white tiger and blue shark. Switch the Lion and Eagle and you've got Wild Force

overall fun season so far

Kamen Rider Ghost was there to promote...something. The Ichigou movie, technically, which is why the monster's part of Shocker. Ghost's just there for fun. With ToQger/Gaim and Ninninger/Drive they did actual crossover TV specials, but they seem to have lost interest in those. The Kyu/Ex-Aid crossover was even more half-arsed. Quarter-arsed, you might say.

So I decided to take timegold, and Ataruman's advice, and watch Bioman.

I watched the first 6 episodes last night.

So far I think it's okay but that's mostly because so far it seems like only the Shiro, Shingo, and Mika have had any focus episodes.

I do like the gimmick that they have five monsters they alternate through for the ground fights, and just have a new monster for the giant fights.

Especially since even when the other bad guys use different Beastnoids Monster always uses Jou for his Beastnoid.

Meanwhile in the land of video games and Overwatch...

Overwatch's 1 Year Anniversary event launched. Which also gives new skins for all the characters. One of them being a very suspiciously toku-esque skin...



Name of the skin is "Sentai", but has elements of both Super Sentai AND Kamen Rider.

To further the connection, if you play Genji with the skin equipped, his voice lines will change to some very...toku specific lines.

Voice lines start at 2:11.



Apparently, someone at Blizzard is a huge Gekiranger and Go-Onger fan.

So I got to the 40th anniversary part of Zyuohger. Still enjoying the season. Using Gokaiger to show the 40 seasons was a smart way to do it. I haven't seen Gokaiger yet but I'm looking forward to it. They look really bad ass

That's it for 40th anniversary stuff during the TV series. They wanted to let Zyuohger be its own season the rest of the time. The movie and the Vs will have more anniversary stuff.

There's also the 4 Super Animal War shorts, but were those ever English subbed?

The first three have been subbed by TV-N. The fourth wasn't released yet.

I'm still enjoying the season. It's been cool since they switched to the Mega Beast Hunter storyline

I wonder what they're gonna do for the 50th anniversary. It's gonna be hard to top Gokaiger changing into every Sentai

So I'm currently 24 episodes into Bioman.

I'm glad I at least got to see focus episodes for Ryuta, and Hikaru.

Also I enjoyed the Prince episodes since there the closest the show has had so far to having an over arching plot.

I think my only problem is that it seems like Jun was the only one who's job or hobby has become a plot point for an episode.

I especially think it's weird because I can't help but wonder if that one episode where Hikaru got brain washed by the camera wasn't originally supposed to be a Mika episode that they retooled.
