    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space Final: "Let it Ring Throughout the Universe! Talk About Lucky!"

    Believe it or not, there's 13 characters in that image! This week: Raptor makes her own Sailor Moon reference, Don Armage is all the universe's bad vibes, double beam-o-war, Lucky casually shatters the laws of physics (again!), Stinger takes two years to get his own bitchin' pimp coat, and...

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 47: "A Promise Between Saviors"

    This week: The long night before the big battle, Spada's roll call sound like he's just got caught in his fly, one by one everyone falls, Lucky scales to new heights of insane plans, and Don Armage gets an upgrade that's really old-school looking (plus I think that ouroboros weighs less than...
  3. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 46: "Between Hope and Despair"

    I'm sure this is fine... This week: beginning the episode by declaring it to be the final battle when we know there's two more episodes after this means things won't go to plan, Don Armage's goal is basically the same as that of every Final Fantasy villain, Lucky is temporarily sent into what...
  4. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 45: "Tsurugi's Life and Earth's Peril"

    So we just shoot this Planetium Bomb into a black hole like the last one? No, Commander. The audience lives there. This week: lot of dramatic lighting on the bridge, they remembered Kotaro's little brother exists (still no sign of the mysterious uncle who was taking care of him though), oh hey...
  5. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 44: "Don Armage's Identity"

    Did you notice this series has a lot of power-ups? This week: Mr Pega's back and they still haven't sorted out his badly applied stickers, 6 minutes of recap to get the plastic horsey up to speed, not a deathworm but a REPAINTED deathworm, a very cool pose, Hammie becomes sultry (and Sailor...
  6. Toku Prime

  7. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 42: "His Father or the Universe? Lucky's Resolution"

    "Gentlemen! You can't fight in here; This is the war room!" This week: It seems Toei can still do elaborate minature cities when they try, Garu has much longer fur from the neck down than he does on his head and that's somehow weird to me, vice-shogun-gattai, a reality bomb, and Lucky does a...
  8. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 41: "Onward! To Planet Southern Cross"

    You think you can defeat me? You don't even have the Super Sentai Bazooka! This week: Spada's given up on space food and is just making regular Japanese meals now, Lucky's pets are united in idolizing him, a redecoed six year old suit now has added illusions powers, and it's a nightmare come...
  9. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 40: "Gameday for Deathball in Hell!"

    Watch out for the ceiling fan! This week: Yes it's baseball - a game that only Japan and the USA care about so logically enough the space-Italian member of the team hasn't a clue. But we did get to see him stab something with his face so that's something. 'Kyuranger Hurricane' was a slightly...
  10. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 39: "The Adventure in the Perseus System"

    Spada reacts to Stinger's singing with exactly the same expression I did. This week: We'll I'd call it a 'cast member shows off their talent' episode but does it really count when the episode straight-up says how terrible they are at it? Anyway every third anime nowadays is a "person gets...
  11. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 38: "Rolly Moly! The 9 Dangerous Trials!"

    Yeah, we spotted you using Ryuranger's roll call pose, Commander. This week: Xiao Longbao has to prove to the audience himself that he isn't completely superfluous to the team, Tsurugi and Hammie provide some minor fanservice, the mechs show off their interchangability, and a villain from the...
  12. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 37: "Lucky Reunites with his Father"

    So Kyuranger is now officially sponsored by Star Wars?! This week: Well these citizens sure are feisty if they're still coming out to boo the King long after they were conquered, Lucky gets the ZyuohTheWorld treatment,washing some sand away, and the Lion King is crowned.
  13. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 36: "The Legend Sleeping on Lucky's Home-World"

    Dog devastated to discover that he isn't man's best friend. So if we go by the commonly held view that The Chronicles of Narnia depicts Aslan as essentially the Jesus of another world...does that mean this year's Red is being given allusions to divinity? Also, this episode's monster has a...
  14. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 35: "The Secret of The Universe's No. 1 Idol"

  16. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 33: "Launch! The Battle Orion Ship!"

    Naga's on fire this episode! This week: No time for a cold open or intro narration, Spada turns into Popeye(?), oh hey the new spaceship has a bridge exactly like the old one - isn't that cheap convenient, the real commander of this motley crew returns, the new spaceship has a new mecha mode...
  17. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 32: "Be Forever the Orion!"

    Spada summarised in a single image This week: Never try and do anything without your Red Ranger present, emotional changes are brought about by tiny aliens in your brain, Naga returns but gets to keep his evil power-ups, and the fakest of robo-tears.
  19. Toku Prime

    Uchū Sentai Kyuranger, Space 30: "Alright! The Miracle Kyutama"

  20. Toku Prime

    ...and then you just drape it's body over your left shoulder like this... This week: Lucky goes into the past, a hint that Orion might be Lucky's ancestor, lots of fighting down at the old quarry, and Don Armage shows just why his name is a fudged anagram of armageddon.
