Saw it today. I am surprised that they used Yellow as another decoy bride. I remember in the original Shinkenger episode, blue was in disguise as one of the brides. but in this version, they didn't want to touch the whole male rangers cross-dressing issue. What can I say, it's a kids' show.
Anyway, nice episode though. Needed more work on the rangers' roll call.
I don't think it was an issue with cross-dressing, as that's popped up in kids shows before, usually for humorous setups. Remember that the reason that Ryunosuke was chosen to take the place of one of the brides was because of his experience with kabuki theatre, even though he says that his experience with onnagata wasn't as good as he wanted it to be. Also, the Japanese wedding dress hides the face a bit better than the American wedding veil, and Ryunosuke can pass as a woman much better than Kevin could. I think it was ok to switch it. Plus, we got to get a bit more hinting of romance between Mike and Emily! :laugh:
I thought that the only problems with this episode were Fong's acting and Medina's voice acting for Decker. Other than that, it was the best episode so far. My long review is here if you would like to check it out: http://www.takacomics.com/2011/03/pr-samurai-episode-6-review/
