Wait, Trigger is a remake? I thought it was in the same continuity. I expected a continuation after Dyna (technically after when the Gransphere was attacking Mars in Ultraman Saga but you know what I mean).So just to be clear, Captain Shark, you're disappointed that it turns out that the show that actively promotes itself as being a remake of Tiga contains villains that are remade versions of ones from Tiga? Honestly, I'm not sure what else you'd expect them to be?
Well the series' lead director, Koichi Sakomoto, recently insisted in an interview that the show is neither a sequel or a remake, and is simply using Tiga in it's publicity to take advantage of a popular season celebrating it's anniversary.Wait, Trigger is a remake?

Oh I can understand that. I stopped watching Saber when Genm stopped subbing it, and stopped watching Zenkaiger for about six weeks because I completely burned out. Trying to catch up on both now, but taking a break sometimes really helps.Still haven't seen the first episode. I don't know, it feels like keeping up with everything is such a chore now.
Eh, I've never understood what all the fuss was about with Take Me Higher. It's a pretty generic eurodance song from that time period. It's just that rather than let the Italian guy who originally wrote it release it, they translated the lyrics and got Daigo's actor and his band to sing it.The opening theme was good, but is no Take Me Higher. Oh I can't wait to hear that glorious song a million times come Oct when Mill Creek's DVDs come out.
I believe I read that the two characters names are spelt using different characters in Japanese. Until we something more concrete, I'm not yet sure they are doing anything more than sprinkling in similar names as homages. For example, the name that Kengo gave his plant is the same as the name of the ancient civilization in whose ruins the Tiga statue was found in that show.As for continuity, Tiga clearly happened as they talk about him appearing and Reina is Kengo's mother. Makes you wonder if Daigo is his father, which means Daigo better show up later or I'm calling bullshit!!
IIRC real life just got in the way. One of their team needed to start working more hours and couldn't continue. At first it seemed like it was only temporary, but they've only done two episodes since, taking them up to episode 20.Why did Gemn stop subbing Saber? Who is doing the subs for it?
I think their latest stuff is being called Non-actionable Fansubs.I'll just wait until OZC Live does Blu-Ray scrubs before I even attempt download Saber.
Max and Mebius are more memorable for me. And a good chunk of the New Generation shows. But Tsuburaya didn't have many memorable songs at all back in the 90s.I don't have a single opening from any other Heisei series memorized. Well, maybe I do for Orb's, but I have to think really hard to remember it.
As much as I love Basco here, I hope he's more than that. I also would love to see them make use of his English skills.. Outside of that it was a decent episode and a good introduction to the treasure hunter, hopefully they'll keep him more of. Gray character instead of just having him join with Guts Select full time down the line.
