Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 35 Review

When the team finally head off for a confrontation with Don Armage in the show’s present, I didn’t think we’d get there for at least another episode. The team deciding to stop off on the way for pop-related hijinks was obviously a set-up for a filler episode but, like always, Kyuranger has a much, much better way to handling filler than other Sentai‘s do and we actually ended up getting a lot of huge plot-important stuff in the second half. We’ve seen this gold alien pop star dude a lotRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 34 Review

When Xiao Longbao came out of the deep-sleep chamber thing in the last episode, my immediate first reaction was ‘Okay, so where’s Champ? He’s a robot so he probably doesn’t need to go into hibernation, but where is he?’ It was brought up briefly at the end of the last episode that he went to find Professor Anton, and now we have the result of that search. One of the things that’s so impressive to me about Kyuranger and one of the reasons why I think it’s lasted for 34Read More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 33 Review

Last week we skipped over the narrated intro and had a weirdly epic build-up to the opening title sequence. This week, we’re straight into the title sequence with no intro at all. Strange that they’re mixing it up but I supposed it’s to create something like a new start mid-series. The Naga is evil/going back in time arc spanned a lot of weeks so now that we’re back to something resembling status quo it seems the show is trying to give itself a push for the second half. Either thatRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 32 Review

We skip over the usual opening narration this week to go straight to Don Armage addressing his minions. It’s a strong opening that shows for the first time since the Kyurangers returned to the present that he really is still around and nothing has changed at all. The church setting is a striking choice for a such a short scene but it works really well and it makes me miss the more visually-interesting villain lairs in series like ToQger. The main purpose of this opening to get us onto theRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 31 Review

After going back to the past to change history, the Kyurangers returned to discover the world in a slightly more dystopian place than they left it, now that Garu and Kotaro have been captured, the Orion is badly damaged, and everything they just did seemed like it was for nothing. The start of this episode felt hopeless in a way that only this particular Sentai show can do. Part of Kyuranger‘s appeal to me is that it’s the story of the universe being freed from evil rather than a universeRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 30 Review

It’s strange to have something that feels like a final battle against the main villain in Episode 30 of a Sentai series, but here we are. We had an epic fight in a desert with cool drone shots and slo-mo, the main villain tried to attack the rangers’ base, and at least three characters were on the brink of death (and one actually died). It certainly felt endgame-y, and for me it’s exactly the sort of thing the mid-series of a Sentai show needs to keep the momentum going. IRead More

Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 29 Review

This episode got off to a strong start with the team in the present exploring the 300-year-old wreckage of the Orion. The destroyed control room was a simple but effective image that made for a memorable pre-title sequence with a genuine cliffhanger rather than just the promise of a fight. It’s nice to see Sentai attempting a more complicated storyline, and for the most part it works. As far as villain introductions go, it doesn’t get much better than Don Armage’s entrance at the end of this episode. There areRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 28 Review

Wow, they really want to make sure we understand the whole ‘two teams: one in the past, one in the present’ thing, huh? They’re even doing on-screen diagrams now. Something else I want to mention about the opening is that Lucky introduced the whole group as the Kyurangers rather than just saying his own name. Since the start of the series Lucky has steadily grown more and more competent as a leader and I can’t tell if it’s an intentional character arc or a side-effect of the show having gainedRead More

Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 27 Review

So there’s good news and there’s bad news. The bad news is that this new arc is kicking off immediately with a clip show. Why couldn’t we have the clip show last week and the Naga stuff this week? As it stands, the show built up momentum and then immediately threw it away, leading to a weirdly paced start to Naga’s ‘evil ranger’ arc. The good news is that this clip show is genuinely funny. A lot of that comes from the presence of Xiao Longbao, a character who (muchRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 26 Review

I’m so glad the show followed up on Naga’s lack of emotions being mentioned in 25. Since the character was first introduced I’ve been fascinated by the idea of a species that represses all emotions but so far it’s only been used for comic relief purposes. Seeing it return as a main plot thread feels like something we’ve been waiting on for a while and I can’t wait to see what the show does with it. Also, the opening scene of Naga looking bored in the cockpit followed by theRead More


Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – Episode 25 Review

This episode sort of went from having a cool premise to a weak premise to a cool premise again. It started out cool when we learned that time travel was being introduced to the show and that Tsurugi wanted to go to the planet Tocky to find out what happened before he was put into hibernation. It then got a bit weaker when they arrived on Tocky and realised that they specifically needed 12 people to make the time travel work, a highly convenient number that made the episode’s mainRead More
