Captain Shark Reviews Gorenger and Beyond!

Captain Shark

An ocean of depression and misery
Now we have come to talk about being FABULOUS in this not-really-Wataru-related series called Kiramager.



"You feeling better?"

No

"So how will this be done?"

Because of the 45 episode length this will be done in 5 parts with 9 episodes each with the movie in part 3 as it takes place between episodes 23 and 24.

"You still checking for continuity?"

If it does not contradict or can easily be explained it is canon.

"But Zenkaiger!"

Haven't seen it and given how slow I have gotten over the years I might not get around to it for a long time, however I am interested in how its mythos plays out. Did Toei really have a multiverse this whole time or was it (outside of Kyuranger and Akibaranger) one universe that got split apart? The fact there will be a crossover movie with Kamen Rider Saber which already has merge-and-seperation problems with its multiverse makes me want to hold off on what the hell is up with the timeline. The only real potential contradiction Super Sentai has is "hey shouldn't animal people from Zyuohger be in more human cities?" which can be explained by "they'd rather go home and not deal with constant alien and demon invasions".

"Anything else?"

I still stand with Vic Mignogna, two years later and not a shred of real evidence. It's reasons like this why I browse r/mensrights. Despite what right wingers that pretend to be left wingers like Leon Thompson from Renegade Cut may lead you to falsely believe, men's rights is a major issue in the west. Not to say Amy Cumstain Barette and Brett Pukenough won't curtail women's rights, that one just gets the coverage. Every election matters and if you're not voting left **** like this happens.

"Why get political?"

America will likely have a second civil war this decade, it's important to document everything because the truth needs defending in this day and age. Trump supporters attempted insurrection, 70% of republicans think the election was stolen and over half thought the riot was done as a democrat false flag operation. It's actually terrifying, I live in a country where plague itself was successfully politicized no matter how high the death count.

=================================================
This series is wonderful! So much actiony action and daring cinematography with minimal humor! In terms of ranger balance Red so far has three, Green with two, and the rest one. I did not expect Galza's backstory to come as early as episode four. The villains are fine, Carantula has done nothing beyond explaining thus far and I will withhold opinions on him for the time being. The mechs are cool and shiny, 'nough said! I especially like Smog Jouki, that thing is badass! The grunts, the Bechats, are a downgrade compared to what we've been getting since Gokaiger; they're pretty basic and use a rake of all things. It is nice to have the kaijin and kaiju be very distinct from one another. And finally Crystalia looks like Inazuman, there I said it. Not much else to say thus far.
 

Captain Shark

An ocean of depression and misery
Been a while since we did Colbert Report style intros! And we continue with part 2!

Hassha Button Ligany: Its only known power is four head missiles

=================================================
And as soon as Yellow and Pink got an episode to them everything became centered on Silver, it pretty much went full Gaoranger. As for the villains Galza is good, but Kurantula is too childish which makes their invasion not as serious as they normally are in Sentai. I do find it shocking that Silver's jackhammer can fire lasers strong enough to SET ENTIRE CITY BLOCKS ON FIRE! Like damn son, Tokyo has to repair itself all the time from the last 42 teams (yes I subtracted Kyuranger since they have their own universe). Haven't seen anything that contradicts continuity, in fact Monstones do resemble Queen Cosmos from Jiban, it's possible they are of a similar species of space junk lifeform given their disguise and shape. Not much else to talk about beyond it's nice seeing cool mech designs.



On a side note since the movie is proving impossible to find and I have a backlog, short hiatus until I find it, sorry folks.
