The Gokai Change-Up: My Thoughts on Gokaiger Episode 27

This was possibly one of the best filler episodes. I was cracking up the whole time.

Yay, Flashman, finally!

The rest of the team's reactions were priceless to Luka and Doc's situation. "Yeah, Okay.... WHAAAT????"

I don't know if anyone caught this yet, but apparently, there is a string of stores in Japan that are named after Super Sentai Villainesses. Okay, not in real life, but it was a really nice reference. Farrah Cat, Shelinda, Evil Spirit Princess Venus, Gara, Mazenda. I'm pretty sure there are a lot more within that shot.

So, a lot of people were saying "Oh, this is a shippy episode," on the forum. Okay, do you guys actually watch the episode, or flip through it. Luka said she thought Doc was cool in his own way, but that was pretty much it. I mean, she tries to help him by getting him a date. If she really likes him, she wouldn't do that.

Either than, or Luka was using the fact she's in a guy's body to her advantage.

Of course Doc blew the date. Most awkward moment ever. He should at least kept the hairstyle, if nothing else.

Oh, and the criminals were actually jewelers! Who wanted Luka to work for them.

I love the Final Wave Team-up.

The actors were really good at playing each other. Ironically enough, this time, the girl in the guy's body was manlier (despite the makeover).

Luka reacted the same way I would if I was in this situation--use it to my advantage. Luka was pretty calm about the whole thing.

Except she did tell Doc and Gai (while he was shaking Doc in Luka's body) that if they touch her boobs, they'll die.

Next week!

Gai is one of my favorites! So Psyched!

It looks like Gai is doing what I'd thought he would be doing, flirting with chicks in a bar in the afterlife. Oh, and he's still smoking hot! Did he have work done? Either way he looks great.

I'm looking forward to seeing him back in action!

Why do Ninjas Hate Pirates? My thoughts on Gokaiger Episodes 25 and 26

Great episodes.

The best part was the fight team-up!

This episode still didn't answer the question, though, why do Ninjas hate Pirates?

It was nice to finally see Insarn fight.

I love Hurricane GokaiOh. It's probably my favorite in the series.

The episode was great in keeping the mixture of comedy and drama in Hurricanger.

I was so happy to see Liveman! It's one of my favorite series!

And they did the helmet thing with Abaranger!

I loved the game show from hell.

I wonder if the part when Magerappa poured water on Marvelous, Joe, and Luka, and they threw the buckets to the side after they were empty, and the bucket landed on Luka's head was improvised, and the direct decided to keep it.

I liked seeing the girls team up, and I also liked the fact that they did the final wave with their respective colors still.

I'm happy there's some continuity. Nanami's still working as an idol, and now Kouta is working at a nursing home, which suits him, and Yousuke is now working at a car wash, so he's still washing things.

I liked how Nanami referred to herself as "Oneesan." I liked that kind of big sistery-relationship to the team.

And they did the whole role call!

I like how the Gokaigers weren't good. They were aware that Satarakura Jr was going to blow up the nuts that were people if they won, but they were throwing the game because they knew there was no right answer. And I liked how Ahim showed some badass, when she said, if you don't return the keys, I'll take them by force.

I think at the end, Yousuke tolerates Marvelous, and trusts him, but isn't his best friend or anything.

Oh, and tied for the best parts of the show, other than the fight.

Nice try, Satarakura, but that's not Luka, that's a suit actor who's a dude, and those boobs are fake.

Meow! Princess Kitty!

Awww, this was cute, then Navi ruined it. Surprisingly, Navi didn't have any prophecies, yet they got an ultimate power.

All and all, a great episode. I look forward to seeing them fight as the Hurricanger and the Gouraijers and Shurikenger.

Next week, the body-swap episode. I know what Doc's going to do when he's in Luka's body---freak out. What did you think I was going to say? Get your mind out of the gutter!

Yay, Flashman, one of my favorite series.

Doc (Kazuki) is probably one of the best actors in the series, and he embodies his character so well. I'd like to see him embody Luka's character. It will be a challenge, considering Luka's manlier than him. And same for Luka (Mao), who will have to be timid, with no confidence, and neurotic.

Ironically, during most brain swap episodes and movies, when the people are of opposite genders, the guy will act girly, and the girl will act manly. This is exactly the opposite. Sure, Luka will give Doc a new look, but she's actually tougher than him.

I hope he keeps his new look. This is how Kazuki's hair looks in real life.

And it looks like Luka might have made some enemies with criminals, and now that Doc's in her body, he'll have the bare the brunt (unless Luka in Doc's body saves him, spoiler alert).

Oh, and next Saturday, Gai will come back (not that Gai, the other Gai). I guess he was too cool for the afterlife. Gai is one of my favorite all time characters, ever!
