Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger – Episode 47 Review

So apparently there’s one more episode after this that I didn’t know about. That being said, why on Earth wasn’t this the finale? Just like with last week, this was an episode that was okay to watch in isolation but absolutely failed to build any sort of momentum for the series overall. When Master Ginis walked out of the explosion at the end all I could think was “Oh, come on!” Killing Green Toxica (FINALLY!) and bringing the spaceship crashing down to Earth (in some conveniently uninhabited mountains rather thanRead More

Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger – Episode 46 Review

On the whole, I’ve enjoyed watching Zyuohger. It hasn’t been perfect by any stretch of the imagination but it hasn’t been bad either. The biggest crime of Zyuohger‘s storytelling is just that it didn’t have enough to hook me for 47 episodes, and never was that more apparent than in this, the penultimate episode. The episode ends with Azald, a threatening villain who is actually significant to the show’s mythology, being killed by the rangers. Then, Master Ginis, the most boring villain in the show, decides to stick around andRead More

Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger – Episode 45 Review

Buckle up everyone: it’s endgame time. This episode kicked off the final arc of the series just about as well as it could. We had some strong character stuff examining Yamato’s family situation, some world-building stuff with the origin of Misao’s powers and Azald’s backstory, and some strong action stuff, including the first time all seven Zyuohgers have fought together. It’s interesting that this henshin had Yamato going into Zyuoh Gorilla mode rather than his default Zyuoh Eagle form, but I guess that’s so we can have a ‘proper’ allRead More
