Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 38 Review

Despite being a space-based Sentai, I wouldn’t exactly call Kyuranger a sci-fi series. It’s more like a fantasy with the way most of the powers go unexplained. I’m not saying I expect a technical explanation for how things like the changers work; that’s part of the premise of the show. It’s like the TARDIS being bigger on the inside in Doctor Who: sure, it’s strange but that’s just the background stuff, the hows and whys of which never really becoming part of the main action. When I say powers goRead More

Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 37 Review

I know it’s a small thing, but I love those scenes at the beginning of every episode where the Kyurangers figure out what their next mission is. The fact that we get one at the start of every episode in the pre-opening space where most Sentai teams would be chilling at their HQ means that the default setting of the Kyuranger team is more active rather than passage. They’re always on the move and they’re always getting work done to save the universe. It’s also just a nice way ofRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 36 Review

Totally called it! The overall theme of Kyuranger has been that ordinary people can make a difference, so it makes sense that the endgame we’re building to involves the universe rising up to overthrow Jark Matter. Using the pop star from the last episode as a catalyst for the uprising was an unexpected twist but it makes a lot of sense given his role in inspiring Hammy and how his numerous appearances throughout previous episodes have already established him as a well-known and influential figure in the universe. Having himRead More
