Chou Sei Kantai Sazer X - Talk Up! [Fansub Spoilers!!!]

Holy crap.

Now THAT was an ending. Easily this is my favorite of all three series. I'm surprised that they actually let Shark disappear, I thought Takuto would have used his wish on that.
 
So finally, finally, I was able to finish Sazer X. It wasn't exactly what I had expected after Justiriser (still halfway through Gransazer), but after a somewhat questionable start Sazer X proved to be an excellent series in the end. Its comedy evolved to become such an enjoyable part of the show's character and in most cases (toned down) worked well to cut some of the more serious tones in the series. In the end I grew to love each of the characters, but my favorite characters would have to be Blaird and Takuto. Their interesting relationship proved to be the best aspect of the show to me.

After such a nice ending to a wonderful show, it's just so sad to think it's the last of the even more wonderful Cho Sei Shin Series. I can only hope that Toho will return to creating Hero shows sooner than later, because they've created some of the finest in the genre.

I'm finally beginning to catch up with Sazer X since I'm up to date on Kabuto & Boukenger.

I must say I am sadly dissapointed right now. The story seems to be crap, the villians seem to be idiots, Lio Sazer seems to be a goof, and above ALL else.....

Toho replaced the Band that did the Guyferd/Gransazer/Justiriser background and fight music. :nono:

Now instead of dramatic kick ass Gottenburg style Metal we get gay little trumpets that add no punch to any of the fight scenes and just sounds extremely lame.

Anyway, I don't know how much longer I watch the stupidness of Blaird and Takuto. I hope something begins improving in this series. The only reason I'm continuing this is because Kyu & Kyo seem to be keen on it and I know they've got some good taste so there's gotta be something coming in the show that is good.

I think it's an "acquired taste" with Kyo and Kyu. Really Sazer-X doesnt get much better. It's about the same all the way through. It has problems but that's apparently because they had to wrap up the show early.

Improvment with "Father, Returns!" episode.

We get a more serious side of Takuto aswell.

I noticed the actor who played his father also played Shougo in a few Megaranger episodes involving the debut of Delta Mega.

Things were Remy & Takuto also seem to be getting actually entertaining now.

Remy's planet being destroyed was pretty sad. I felt bad for her at that point.

So the Space Pirates are finally destroyed. Pretty alright battle to end their arc. I'm hoping the next batch of villians will be a little more menacing though.

Gransazers and Justirisers carry more of a serious tone. There are some comedic moments, but nothing as zany as Sazer X tends to get. Gransazers has a slew of characters which seems to get in the way of character development. It has a great story but don't expect every character to get the focus they need. Justirisers however manages to development most of its main cast very well and creates very interesting relationships between its characters. Gransazers and Justirisers are both action heavy, you will definitely get to see a lot of fights. Very highly recommended. Justirisers is my all-time favorite, I could watch the series an endless amount of times.

I've finished Sazer-X and even though the 'feel' of the show is different from Justirizers, I enjoyed it just as much. I liked the humor in it and the ending didn't show the series was cut short in my opinion. I also found the general flow of the story pretty original (just to name one example: Jackal got killed instead of being converted and joining the good guys).

The only Seishin series I haven't seen yet is Gransazer which makes me wonder: would it be better to first watch Gransazer and then the Sazer-X movie or can I watch the Sazer-X movie now (considering some characters from all three Seishin series make appearances)? :eyebrow:

So basically you don't need any background knowledge of Gransazers to watch the movie then.
How about spoilers? Any dangers of spoiling the Gransazer series by watching the movie?

Sazer-X is non stop. Episodes 34-35 were amazing, I am sometimes left breathless by the end of some of these episodes. The Remy/Shark story was really deep, more deep than anything in the Star God Trilogy, I absolutely loved it.

I'm finishing the last 3 episodes tonight and I seriously hate to see this end. Infact, I put it in the same pile as Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Mutant X.... It should never end.

I'm saving the movie for tomorrow night and a farewell to the Trilogy.

I was gonna ask if anyone has a wallpaper of the Sazer-X movie cover art or anything?.

Finished it. I am really sad to see the SSS end here. This franchise should have never ended in any way whatsoever.

The finale was a definate tear jerker. Black Lio looks pretty sick and the final battle inside the Giant was awesome.

So The Future is changed and Shark is gone. But what I don't understand is why Remy stayed behind in 2006?.

Overall, I really enjoyed the Trilogy. Gransazer was probally my favourite but Sazer-X had the best story that kept me wanting to watch again and again. I feel I lost out on not giving this series proper respect during it's intial run, but I blame that on the comedy in the early part of the series. For anyone having trouble getting into Sazer-X just fight it off and keep watching until Shark Sazer shows up and everything goes up hill from there and keeps getting better and better each episode.

The SSS Mecha Battles will always beat the Sentai mecha battles, in a heartbeat.

Farewell Star God Heroes.

I'm lucky I still got the Sazer-X movie which I'll check out tomorrow night. It'll be good to see everyone in action one last time too. Toho should really reconsider stepping down from Tokusatsu and bring back a 4th SSS.

I haven't seen it in a while, but I don't remember anything that would spoil. Like I said, the Gransazers' part is very brief. Literally all they do is show up for a massive fight, jump in their mechs to help beat the giant monster and that's it.
