To be honest, Carranger is more fun than Megaranger. Please don't kill me.....

Goseiger ep 30-32

The Yuumajuu finally meet their end & the Goseigers are granted the last piece to their arsenal in the form of the awesomeness that is GoseiUltimate albeit at the cost of Master Headder. Overall decent finale to the Yuumajuu, Was kinda annoyed that it wasn't GoseiKnight to deliver the final blow (these guys were the reason why he protected the Earth) but whatever. There appears to be a new threat coming from the sea.....but before we deal with them we have to deal with a different threat & a lot of overly traditionalism of Samurais........

Keep watching... it has gotten better and better. I loved Goseiger but i gotta admit this... the show has started little slow. Bladerun.... that damn fool... such a bad ass villain. :-) Loved all villains.

I watched it for the second time. Still love it.

Tensou Sentai Goseiger vs Shinkenger: Epic on Ginmaku

Ah Shinkenger......You are like 8th on my list of Sentai's I need to watch.....Your time will come.....Eventually......Probably after Bioman....Anyway onto the crossover. If you couldn't tell from the title this specific crossover was released in theaters mostly for it being an Anniversary for the yearly VS specials which is nice. The crossover itself is just alright. Not exactly 4outta10 on IMDB but it still has flaws. While I'm not particular interested in the Shinkengers (Ryuunosuke terrifies me with how friggen loyal/in love he is to Takeru in this special) I can see some fan not be particularly happy with how certain aspects are treated here such as Takeru being under mind control for 80% of the film, Kaoru not participating in the final fight (though that could be story reasons), & the fact that Shitari doesn't encounter either team once let alone amount to anything. Goseiger side isn't exactly perfect either as Nozumu & Professor don't appear at all in the film & despite Buredoron return....He just looks silly as if he's trying to cosplay as the Main Shinkenger villain.

Still there are some positives, The strict Shinkengers having to work with the childlike Goseigers was amusing, The fights in this are pretty damn good, & the final mecha fight was cool. Overall Pretty good VS now back to the series.......Oh yeah there were these Pirate rangers that popped outta nowhere to help......Don't know what that was about nor do I think it'll be important or a successful anniversary series at all......

For me, Megaranger and Carranger are on par with each other for best sentai I've seen.

Carranger's a more fun and funny series, but Mega's a more heartwarming, serious one. But when you kinda dissect it, Car and Mega have a lot in common, basically Mega is like if Car was more serious.

I love them both however.

reviewing the past sentai revealed to me some interesting patterns:

5-year cycle starting with Hurricanger:
>> 1st two sentai of the cycle has only 1 female in the core team (Hurri-Aba, Geki-Go-on, Go-bus-Kyoryu)
>> in each 5-year cycle, there are 3 pink rangers

10-year cycle is quite obvious, since starting with Maskman, always had dino, ninja, and vehicle-themes seasons. Carranger is the odd one here though.

What does this say about the future of sentai? Are there other thematic or random patterns throughout the 40 years?

Colour and/or gender choices with recent series like Ninninger and Zyuohger might break this pattern once children open up to beyond the conventional five.

So what's the general consensus on Maskman? That's going to be the next series I'm tackling after Goseiger (I have a Bizarre list of Sentai's to watch) & I'm just trying to see where that series stands before I make smartass comments at the beginning since the biggest thing O get from it is "middle of the road".

From what I've seen, Maskman has a fairly positive reception. People do like it, but I've seen a few who didn't.

Maskman is one of the best, if not the best, of the 80s Sentai.

For me, Maskman had a great aesthetic but was lacking on substance. I was bored with it, save the episodes that focused on the blue ranger, he was easily the best character of the bunch.

I couldn't stand Maskman. If it weren't for Kenta, Akira and Momoko, I don't think I would have been able to get through it.

Maskman has some of the oddest of twists. Namely, there's one complete untwist which leads nowhere, and one twist which is so obvious that I'm surprised it even counts as a twist. It kind of makes for a messy story, especially with only one ranger getting any real development.

But hey, at least it has some great action.

One of Maskman's twists I admit actually works in its favor even if the show is still dumb: the idea of something that seems to be rather obvious and more and more hints at it...but then several episodes from the end, the theory blows up in everyone's faces as the truth is revealed in the endgame. Its one of those things where I just find it funny now in that it fools everyone, even the audience. (on the other hand, another twist can pretty much be realized from the beginning, if not from episode 11...)

Yeah, I'm not a fan of this too. It's too weird that they were naked and then transformed into Maskman.

Goseiger ep 33

Here we are introduced to our new villain group in the for of the Matrintis Empire an ancient civilization bent on ruling over humanity because of Machine superiority comprising of Robogog (who essentially looks like The Mobile suit Talgease on steroids), & Metal Alice (A fembot) surprisingly though no Buredoron to be seen guess his fight against 2 Sentai teams really did finish him off (I know he's still alive let me joke). Outside of them we start a new subplot for GoseiKnight on his duties now that the Yuumajuu are dead.

Not so much naked but it does educate about the weirdest underwear trends in 80s Asia.

Just finished my first time watching Gingaman subbed, having seen it RAW numerous times. Word cannot express how much I love this series. I've said it multiple times, but of all the Super Sentai series I've seen, this one is my personal favorite.

And it's just dawning on me that this is the one Kobayashi penned Super Sentai series with an unquestionable happy ending. Nothing bittersweet about it, which I don't think you can really say about any of her others.
