Gokaiger! Report to the Emperor! My thoughts on Gokaiger Ep 11 and 12
For those of you who have doubted Kaoru, watch this episode. She is awesome, and this episode makes her even more awesome. If you're wondering why only she appeared, well, the whole cast is extremely talented, and I'm pretty sure that because of that, they're all doing something amazing, so they were too busy to appear. Besides, Chiaki and Genta will appear in the movie!
Is it just me, or is Tanba wearing a toupee? I actually like Tanba. He's needed to present a sharp contrast to both Kaoru, and Jii (who SHOULD HAVE APPEARED!). And its hilarious whenever Kaoru hits him with her fan (what happened to her big one?).
Kaoru is still a force to be reckoned with. Although, I would have loved to see Kaoru fully do the duel with Joe instead of conceding because Joe had to join his team to fight the Zangyack, and giving him a disk instead, but that moment was just as good.
The Phrase "Blue Bloods" gets a whole new meaning. Finally, the Gokaigers meet Oiles Gil.
This is the first time Luka has appeared not wearing her usual jacket (unless you include the maid episode). So far, the rest of the Gokaigers have appeared without their jackets, except her.
Great use of out of suit fighting sequences. Those are some of my favorite things. And of course, we saw Zyuuranger, Dynaman (only for a few seconds though) Gingaman (they did the arched backs and everything). We're going to have the gingaman in the next episode.
The fights in episode twelve were amazing. My favorite ones were Yellow and MegaYellow. And Green Sai, OhGreen. And Pink Flash (I loved watching Ahim use her boot attack in HD) and Time Pink.
And out of suit fight sequences for episode twelve were great as well (fanboys, Ahim took off her jacket, put it on one of the Gormin, then shot them).
The whole thing between Cid and Joe made me feel like crying. So sad. Look forward to seeing more of it. Oh, and I knew it! Joe's trainer was Barizorg. Hahaha! Cid was turned into a Cyborg by the Zangyack and became Barizorg.
I liked seeing Marvelous fighting side-by-side with Joe (twice), and risking his life to save him. Marvelous mentioned that that was the second time he saw Joe. What about the first? Can't wait to see it.
And the montage of the Gokaigers joining the team one by one. And Joe thinking about them, nice.
The scene with the children is one of the scenes they use to show if a character is truly good or not, especially if its a villain. Joe mentions to Cid how the Zangyack lied to them. Hmm... wonder what that's about.
The Shinkenger Fight was great. Seeing a ShinkenYellow that's taller than ShinkenPink is weird to me, but still cool.
ShinkenGokaiOh, so cool!
Next time we finally have an Ahim episode! Ahim, being the altruistic soul she is, helps a man who kidnapped her. And Marvelous wants her back so he doesn't have to pay the ransom... I think that's according to some translations, but I didn't see anything like that in the trailers. I hope this isn't a Marvelous/Ahim ship tease. Ahim has Joe and Doc. I don't want another Everyone hearts Kaori or Everyone hearts Sakura season.
