subs are out...time to watch
I haven't seen the original Gavan outside the first few eps, but I'm assuming Don Horror's body was destroyed at the end of the series and technically dead therefore he needed a body.
Meant to say if there was a reason why Itsuki was specifically chosenâ€¦my fault for wording it wrong.
Just got done watching it, I thought it was pretty good. Although defiantly not the Geki we say in Go-Busters. I thought what comedy that was in the movie worked. Although I saw the villain reveal coming almost from the start though. It wasn't a perfect movie but it was good like I said. The only real complaint I have would be[HIDE]Shaider and Sherivan weren't really needed as far as the plot went[/HIDE]
I have to disagree with that. I thought the actors playing Geki and Itsuki did a decent job. Touya's actor was pretty wooden though. He only seemed to display emotion when the mask was on. I don't know if that was deliberate or if the guy's future career should be in voice acting instead.I mean, how boring and unlikable were the three leads, for how much screen time they ate up? It was hard to care about any of them or their limp storyline. The casting of Yuuma Ishigaki was a HUGE mistake -- he just sucks and has no presence or personality. (And this is Kenji Ohba's shoes he's putting on here!)
I've only seen the five episodes subbed by Midnight Crew, along with the Gokaiger and Go-Busters appearances, so I'm by no means a Gavan expert, but was he always a harsh kind of guy who slaps his underlings about?
I liked the first half. Maybe it was a little flashback heavy. But it felt like Garo in many ways, which is never a bad thing.
I was also a bit disappointed that Witch Kill's final fight was mostly off-screen, after they'd gone and cast Sanae Hitomi in the role.

I got more of a big brother or fatherly vibe from the character previously. Though I've never understood how that whole "beat you up until you have a breakthrough" thing was meant to help anyone. "You need to concentrate on this issue, so I'll distract you by hitting you in the face".
Then just as it seemed we were going to jump into the action, we got the Makuu space BIG LIPPED ALLIGATOR MOMENT!!! :redface2:
I loved the moment when Geki and Retsu first enter Makku Space, Geki smiles and throws up a peace sign at a girl in the front row. Then Retsu smacks him in the head but immediately does the same thing as soon as Geki turns his head. I think that showed the charm of both actors even for a bit and had me dying.
