Better Late Than Never: My Thoughts on Gokai-Silver's Debut
I know, everyone is all like: "It's a Genta clone," but other than the fact he is hyper, I see no reason to compare Genta to Gai.
Gai is us. He is the all who have viewed sentai and have enjoyed it. He is a fan. He is the audience. He is all of us.
He's the ascended fanboy, and he is genre savvy, they need him.
I like his shoes...
And he's kind of cute.
Oh and he has a really cute giggle. I like him. And yeah, he could use some Ritalin...
Looks like Luka might have a thing for him.
Come on, Gokaigers, you aren't that stupid! The guy in silver shouldn't be an obese man in a silver jogging suit eating hot dogs.
The Gokaigers as sixth rangers were amazing. I thought Ahim as a female Aberrekiller looked the coolest.
I loved the scene where he imagined himself with the team. I don't know what was funnier, Marvelous saying happily that he's reckless, Joe saying that he likes baseball cheerfully, or Luka waving to the audience and asking them if they all said hi to their friends--all of this was hilariously out of character. What Ahim said could have been funnier though, like, "Tee-hee, I'm just a girl." or "I hope I didn't break a nail fighting." like totally purposely sexist. That would have been hilarious.
So, apparantly they unlocked, 11 powers in the movie. I'm kind of upset, because I wanted to see some of the warriors from those series in episodes.
Luka and Doc better not be hooking up. Blech! We get it, she punches him. Although he was pissed when Luka said that she thought Gai was cute. Either way, Doc probably has a thing for her, but it doesn't look like she reciprocates the feelings.
Next week we have ALL SILVER! And we find out about Gai's backstory, including everyone's favorite dead possibly anti-social doctor/abaranger Mikoto!
And I'm looking forward to seeing our friends in the Ginga Forest in two weeks! Teruaki Ogawa still looks hot as Hyuuga.
All and all, great episode, but I'm pissed because they unlocked a huge chunk of their powers in the movie, and I hope the series doesn't end like Kamen Rider Decade.
