Gaburincho! Snapping Combination
Writer: Riku Sanjo
Director: Koichi Sakamoto

The five Kyoryugers are now assembled, but Daigo finds the others do not want to act together as a team as they keep their identities secret from each other, such as Nobuharu living with his sister and niece or Amy living in a mansion.

Good episode. The action was great, and I like the senshi interaction. It was a nice Pink/Mostly Blue focus episode as well.

I like what they have going on for the characters, but the tiny thing I would have preferred to be different is the reveal of the characters.

Senshi to senshi reveal is a bit fast, since they did two in one episode but there but Green hasn't been figured out yet, nor Black so the pacing isn't that bad.

On the topic of senshi to family reveal, I feel like they could have gone waaaay longer. They could have let it marinate for at least 8-10 episodes. You know, just so they had a little plot to fall back on, it's w/e though. The surprise affect is still there.

The new breed.
To be quite honest I really like this show so far, Its that cross between fun adventure and action which I really like about sentai, So I think I might stick around for this one.

I was blown away throughout the episode. It's like they have bunches of good stuffs and the only way for us to know them is sticking with the show. I got chilled and goosebumps whenever Daigo, Nobuharu and Amy henshin. The fight scene was excellent, the camera angle and wire-fu were used more diversely than in episode 1, and giant fight rocked. It's really fascinating that the Juudenryuu stayed in different places on Earth, reminds me of Voltron back in the day. I am really glad the fight scene was in quality with GB's one. Kyoryujin is so agile and fast for its bulky appearance :laugh:.
Also, is it me or the way Gabutyra curved itself and spun in the air looks oddly familiar ?
Anyway, this episode is a YES :castlerock:

And here my most feared thing is happening. Even with a 3-piece combination, the mecha already looks clustered. Following Go-Busters footsteps are you Toei?

Overall a good episode. And hey, the thing about lack of Yellow Ranger is answered, although by Kyoruger having a Yellow Sentai alumn is basically the same.

Well, I enjoyed episode 2 marginally better than episode 1 (which bored me to death). I'll give the series at least another week, but it's still not interesting enough to track down subs.

It's weird seeing a three mech combination with red, blue and pink. I'm so used to it being red, blue, yellow.

I really like how Kyoryu Green fights with his sword. Pulling off some Kingdom Hearts moves!:laugh: I can't wait for his episode.

I hope Koichi Sakamoto continues to direct more episodes. The action in this is really fun to watch:)

Fabulous second episode.

Great introduction of both Pink and Blue this go around. I'm okay with tacking pink on there, I completely forgot she was another Ahim (At least right now) until she started using some phrases that Ahim used. She's probably gonna be different but the rich girl thing is very much Ahim.

I'm glad some of Sanjo's plan for making blue an older man with a family has retained somewhat of his original plan. Even though he wasn't married, making him some of a surrogate father to Yuko's daughter is great. Like Kivat said, they could have drawn it out a bit longer but we'll have a bit more to deal with them I think. Sanjo is pretty good with that. (I don't know how they'll reveal that Blue is Yuko's brother. I suddenly flashed back to how Tatsuya's helmet was blown open in front of his father in Timeranger. Man that was a good way to reveal a secret identity)

Sick action, hopefully Sakamoto stays on longer than he did on Fourze. I'm really missing the live transformations instead of clips. But oh well, can't have it all.

And is that Junichi Haruta playing Green's dad?

Glad they kept some awesome suit action for the mecha battles. Somethings are still there from Go-Busters.

Blue's identity has already been revealed to Yuko's daughter in that episode. Btw, don't you feel that Kyoryublue has a little Abared feeling with his niece?
And yes, it's Junichi Haruta.

The impression I got was that acting the "perfect young lady" doesn't come naturally to her. At the start of the episode when she's with her butler, she's very aware that he is watching her, and deliberately alters her speech to sound more formal (even switching her personal pronoun halfway through.) Later, when she's decided that saving the day is more important, she's able to be herself and speak normally, and that's when she transforms in front of the butler. Ahim was comfortable with the upper-class lady role, Amy isn't.

What roles were Daigo and Souji's father's in prior? Daigo's father looks so familiar, and Souji's dad just gives off that "I used to be a Sentai senshi" vibe.

Souji's father was both DynaBlack and GoggleBlack

Daigo's father was Billion in Fiveman

He wasn't, he just has the same sounding name. (Shinji Yamashita. Fiveman's Shinji Yamashita has changed his name, though -- he goes by Shunsaku Kudou now.)

I don't know what Daigo's dad is from, though. I don't think anything toku-wise.

A Sentai show needs to get Billion's actor back, though. That guy's cool. I remember he had a small role in Gransazer, but that show sucked and was just a fake Sentai, so it doesn't count.
I stand corrected! Billion's actor WAS damn good though, now you're making me hope he'll show up again one day ... :(
 
I liked this episode. Now THIS is the kind of sentai stuff I like to see. :)

I'm liking the whole concept of how family plays a huge role in keeping the classic trope of a Sentai working together as a team at bay. It somewhat feels like a very interesting spin on some of the stuff that Jetman tried to do. I like how the team still feels incomplete at the start.

I still need to see more of the Deboss, but it's nice seeing the generals actually doing their dirty work. And the whole resurrection plot thing reminds me very much of the Barban from Gingaman, and the whole "points concept per general" reminding me of the Volt doctors. I wonder what we're gonna get from Dogold in the next ep.

Still don't know much about King (I guess this is what we'll call him now), but he's still such a lovable character so far. :anime:

Wow, Nobuharu got quite the somewhat heavy story this ep. I liked what they did with him and his niece. Hmm. I wonder how he's gonna reveal himself to Yuko.

Didn't get too much with Amy, but I think lazy described Amy's character best in comparison to Ahim. How she holds no interest in talking all upper-class like. This definitely sets her character up and definitely holds the potential for some interesting stories. Makes me wonder what her family history is.

Overall, Kyoryuger is off to a nice start and is shaping up quite nicely so far. A good second ep imo. :thumbs:
