Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 47 Review

This episode opened with some small quiet scenes of the crew discussing how far they’ve come. We hear about how Hammy and Garu have warmed to Lucky and how Naga has learned about emotions by being around the others. It’s such a nice way of showing the team’s progress now that things are wrapping up and it makes me appreciate how well these characters have developed. I, like Hammy and Garu, used to be really annoyed by Lucky when the show started but I’ve slowly learned to like him, notRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 46 Review

From the very start, this episode had an epic scale to it. The pre-title sequence alone gives the impression that this could be the last episode of the series. It’s repeatedly emphasised, like with the final Kyulette chance from the end of the previous episode, that this is the last time we’ll see the team saying their trademark catchphrases and doing their trademark things. It’s crazy to think that I was worried when this series was first announced about whether or not a 12-person Sentai would work. Not only haveRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 45 Review

Following on from the reveal of Don Armage’s identity, I love that Tsurugi is now in the same position Lucky was in before. It’s easy to give out advice when you aren’t the one who has to make the final decision, so giving the same tough choice to Tsurugi about killing a loved one possessed by evil is a unique twist to the standard moral lessons in Sentai, or any kids TV show I can think of. But as much as it’s a neat twist to have two people dealRead More

Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 44 Review

I love that this episode started with a message from the alien pop star guy, confirming that there is some sort of organised galactic resistance going in the background. I’d have hoped to see an episode based around this resistance coming together, Star Wars Rebels style, but that’s not really a priority of this show. Still, I’m glad we got something, even if it was a little too ‘tell’ rather than ‘show’. If nothing else, a Star Wars Rebels style episode about the rebellion coming together would have been moreRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 43 Review

The opening of this episode was pretty damn slick, from some unmorphed fighting to almost a full-team henshin to the logo followed by a really cool shot of the rangers silhouetted in their colours. It really feels like we’re in endgame territory now. The fight with Aslan had some good choreography, which was helped a lot by his suit being something the actor could actually fight well in instead of being a bulky monster costume. That said, I wish there was a little bit more to Lucky’s dad turning goodRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 42 Review

This episode mainly revolved about Lucky’s big trolley problem: his father or the universe? Unfortunately there was never any real tension in this question because it was being asked in an episode of Super Sentai, a show that routinely solves trolley problems with “Why not both?” The thing is, I’m not entirely convinced that’s a bad thing. It’s bad in the sense that conflict is at the heart of all stories so a story without conflict is kinda boring, but at the same time Super Sentai‘s ability to let theRead More

Today, Toei held the official press conference for the 42nd Super Sentai series, Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger. Now, as we have reported countless times Lupinranger VS Patranger will be the first time a Super Sentai series focuses on two different teams.

The second team, the Patrangers, are apart of the International Special Police Organization seeking to protect the LupinRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 41 Review

This episode got off to a strong start with a longer than average pre-title sequence. Rather than taking down the Crux System’s shield with the click of a Kyutama, we actually see the effort it took to get in position and activate everything. I love how competent the Kyurangers are as a team and this opening does a good job of showing them planning a mission and executing it perfectly. There’s some really cool time-jump stuff here too, where we’ll see the action spliced with flashbacks to when the planRead More
