Call me crazy, but I really liked this episode. Just finished it.
I suppose we didn't uncover any wrinkles in the ranger's characters that we didn't already know, but it was really interesting to highlight how much the others feel like they depend on Takaharu, and how Yakumo feels specifically. For him it really is a throwback to episode 2.
As much as I've always wanted to like Tsugomori, his execution has always been subpar. His abilities as a tactician were never utilized outside of maybe his first few episodes. He never really felt threatening except in the moment he had backed Fuuka and Yakumo into a corner. For a minute, I actually believed Takaharu was going to have to come to bail them out. It was pretty great seeing him in the rollcall and juggling peppers.
While not completely unexpected, I did like seeing Takaharu have to struggle against Yoshitaka. Even if it's not that bad, having to kill your grandpa is some pretty heavy shit. That flashback was really interesting, but why is there a Last Ninja before Yoshitaka? I thought he was the first, because he sealed Gengetsu.
>tsugomori didn't turn normal sized when he grew giant this really sums up almost all my issues with this show it's just so flat, they have opportunities to have fun but never do it. this show is shit.
>>13764821 holy shit no does takaharu not match up to even daigo I hate daigo but not due to his character so much, he's decently fun to watch in the least if it isn't annoying to see everyone suck his dick, takaharu is just complete garbage outside of maybe the one scene where he says he doesn't like to brag about being stupid
>>13764844 my problem isn't that it's not following sentai tropes, because the show is as a whole, my problem is they don't take the oppertunities to have fun go-busters had fun in the show, they didn't have all their jokes fall flat
ninninger sets up jokes just to not do anything with them, it's like they're trying to tell a joke but have never fucking heard what a punch line is it's just annoying I would've laughed if he had to use the enlargement shit twice to become giant, that would've been funny, but no, no fun allowed on ninnin
>>13764869 yeah, I guess I can see them as that, although takaharu's actor seems to have a real hard time getting that across. and even then right, and daigo to a lesser degree, where a bit more deep than just genki right had the times when he was depressed and what not, and daigo had to deal with being perfect around non-perfect people and had to think real hard about where a good place to throw someone off a floating fortress without harming them is
Why exactly was Tsugomori tiny? Are they trying to throwback to Hurricanger or something? At least with Sargain it made sense and was revealed within like the first 10 episodes or so. This seems like it came out of nowhere, and not in a surprising or satisfying way.
>>13764835 Really? Maybe it's because I wasn't watching it live, but Aigolon being dead never was an issue for me. It certainly worked much better and had more impact than "Tsugomori was tiny all along".
Huh. I really thought we might get Shurikenjin Texas this episode with Takaharu indisposed. I really hate when there are toy exclusive forms, especially when it would've been perfect for certain episodes, like Bison King Surfer. They did give Kinji Surfer-maru at one point, right?
>>13765297 You've got to agree that this one was executed way worse though, right? Aigolon had a little bit of pathos going for him at least. Tsugomori has been disappointing at every turn, and this just takes the cake.
>>13765288 Kento Shimoyama is working under completely different conditions than Urasawa was in the early days of Sentai. Here the numerous production comittee sponsors (as well as the numerous revenue streams including the Japanese government) had to have their stake looked after. It's not the same as the old days when you just had to shill toys or put an idol as a cast member.
>>13771623 I actually like the costumes a lot. Masakage's was my favorite and he was such a wasted character. He had the potential to be actually one clever scheming motherfucker, seeing through Kyuemon's facade from start, but... did nothing, more or less.
Also, I don't get why Kyuemon just didn't tell the retainers he was Gengetsu's son from start. Or why killing grandpa is such a big deal if grandpa is going to dissolve eventually.
>>13771623 I think it fits Ariake at least to have such an elaborate design.
>>13771891 Probably because it would have caused trouble for him. When Gengetsu reveals that Kyuuemon is his son from a concubine, Ariake seems pretty unhappy about it and had she known probably would have tried to murder him before Gengetsu was revived so her own son could take charge when he was born.
>>13772927 I'm so excited for Dadninnger to be able to do cool ninja shit again.
I'm starting to think I'm the only person who didn't like Fuuka that much, though. What is her deal as a character? We had one episode where she's like "I don't care about being a ninja! Oh! I went back in time and I guess I always wanted to be a ninja after all!" then the dracula episode where she basically does the same bit "I don't know what my dream is! HMM."
>>13774754 Yeah, his edgy deathmatch lineage shit from the last episode was really off-putting in light of silly stuff like "our advanced ninja techniques make monsters think they're at the beach." It's like he doesn't know what type of show he's in.
Ok, here's my guess as to how they get around making one of the Ninnins a murderer. >Digimon Shingetsu kills Grandpa >"Now I am Lasto Ninja" >Kill Foxdigimon >"Now I am Lasto Ninja" Alternatively the shitty way that has been predicted since the beginning, power of family "We are all Lasto Ninja"
