    Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger [Series Talk Up]

    It's time once again for a team of heroes to walk off into the sunset (if we ignore how at least one of them is continuing on into the next season). There's been missing parents, world pirates, robot birds, and a fist fight with god. Share your thoughts here on what you thought of the 45th Super...

    [DISCUSSION] Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger, Episode 19

    😍 This week: I'm back from my break and all caught up again, just as the show is running up to potentially going on an (Olympics) break. Dang. Anyway, the strongest of rhino beetles needs dragonzord power to defeat! Is it any wonder that the GOAT mecha inspires a pretty power-up?

    [DISCUSSION] Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger, Episode 10

    Yes, those are totally two identical twins and not the same child actor with his hair brushed the other way... This week: Kaito gets aboard the pirate's ship, apparently this show is based on a world where they still use sun dials and no other form of telling the time, multiple suns must be...

    [DISCUSSION] Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger, Episode 07

    Oh dang, he's got them all in their original packaging! This week: who is that mysterious guy (who IMO looks a bit like Uhr from Zi-O?) dressed in purple (with some grey smudged on his ear?), oh hey past rangers have come to help...haven't they? An ethical dilemma for Gaon, a purple Battle...

    [DISCUSSION] Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger, Episode 06

    Sorry dude, Ninninger already happened! This week: It's the oomori hill (again!), even the head villain objects to this monster-of-the-week, an obvious villain (who IMO really resembles the actor who played Heure from Zi-O) appears, when Vroom triggers the jingle for the Go-Busters Gear Magine...

    [DISCUSSION] Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger, Episode 05

    He slimed me! This last week: Kaito has alphabet curtains, somehow a sushi-theme monster of the week has a wasabi cannon and it isn't his main ability, the Kyuranger Gear harnesses the power of Lucky's luck, rolling down the iconic oomori hill, the Ryusoulger Gear harnesses that team's well...

    [DISCUSSION] Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger, Episode 04

    Flawless Victory! This week: We get a visit from a kindly old former Godzilla (no seriously, the old man who visits the shop is played by long-time Sentai suit actor - and Godzilla's suit actor for the Millenium series - Tsutomu Kitagawa), the first round is interrupted by the new boy, Vroom...

    [DISCUSSION] Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger, Episode 03

    Oops, castor wheels on show! This week: Gaon is apparently a great cook...which raises question as to how and why robots eat? A slippery situation reunites Zyuran with his old neighbor, security don't want wannabe bungee jumpers coming back, Magine needs to learn proper gun handling, her first...

    [DISCUSSION] Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger, Episode 02

    Now we know what really killed the dinosaurs... This week: I thought I'd posted a thread but it seems that I didn't! Whoops! Anyway, the team attempts to recruit some new members and discover a yeller feller who loves organic life. Unfortunately he doesn't get on with Zyuran, but they have a...

    [DISCUSSION] Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger, Episode 01

    This week: two different worlds merge. This is clearly all Decade's Tojitendo's fault. Humans and robots can live in peace (Zero One was worried about nothing!) until the invasion begins and we all become robo-racists. But luckily, AR world Kabuto and Chiyoko from OOO have prepared for this, and...

    The trademark bot on twitter has come through again. Toei has filed an application for "Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger". Don't expect any more details until at least December though. According to folks on twitter who can read Japanese, the "kikai" does not simply mean "machine" (as in Kikaider) but...
