    Just finished Kamen Ryuki. Sad to see a great season with such a terrible ending. Still worth watching, in my opinion.

    Now I'll have to take a break from tokus because I promised a friend I'd watch Attack on Titan. Not sure what I'll watch after that. Maybe GoGoV, you guys made me curious.

    [TVN] Ultraman X: Here It Comes! Our Ultraman
    [Crunchy] Ultraman Orb #24-25 (END)

    Finally catching up on stuff I didn't get to watch last weekend. :sweat:
    Ryuki's ending has been polarising ever since it aired and I suspect it always will be. The key to 'Attack on Titan' is not to get too caught up in all the hype. There's so much of it that it raises expectations to a level no show could ever meet.

    True of many things. AoT was enjoyable enough, and it takes A LOT to make me give a shit about the wastelend that is modern anime.

    Anyway, I've started Ultraman Gaia, and am enjoying it based on the first few episodes.

    Iron Man rise of the technovore subtitle English Japanese vocals

    Almost done watching Kamen Rider Kiva for the second time around

    But I don't have a lot of time to watch either because the holidays have been crazy for me a lot more family time than I expected not necessarily A Bad Thing it's just that when you have an objective goal you really want to focus all your attention on it and unfortunately due to the holiday Rush everywhere that doesn't seem to be a possibility

    Finished Ultraman Gaia last week. VERY middling show overall. Hated the stuff with Agul/Fujimiya.

    Giving Space Sheriff Gavan another go. 12 episodes in and I'm enjoying it, mostly down to Kenji Ohba being fantastic, it must be said. Most of the Makuu space fights so far have been very samey though, in a John Cena 5-moves-of-doom kinda way almost.

    Also, why does Gavan's Laser blade visibly change design after a few episodes in?

    [TVN] Tomica Hero: Rescue Force #51 (END)

    Well I had a pretty solid plan to watch Orb Origin Saga before diving into Rescue Fire, but now TVN have released the rest of Timeranger that's thrown things up in the air a little bit. :confused:

    I've finished watching Kamen Rider Taisen, wow this movie's bad.

    Poor writing with contrived plot and stupid retcons, fights being a mixed with some good and other atrocious, a poorly written villain and some out of character moments with the Showa Riders getting the worst of it, to the point it's almost character assassination.

    Currently watching Kamen Rider W, reached episode 14 so far and the Movie War 2001 movie.

    To quote Des Shinta from Shinta Reviews, I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH!

    This is my comeback to the Heisei Rider shows in a long time as I was so disappointed in Decade that it ruined my interest in Kamen Rider, from there I mostly watched Ultraman, andthe Kamen Rider shows i still watched were the Showa stuff or the early Heisei era shows like Kuuga and the crossover fil s which have been hit and miss (Kamen Rider Taisen can burn in toku hell) . But after Shinta's review of it I decided to dive back in and I'm glad this show understands the fundamentals of a good Kamen Rider show.

    [EXCITE!] Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Chō Super Hero Taisen

    Well that sure was a thing. Once again holding true to my idea that Taisens are large clouds with very slim silver linings; A few genuinely good moments in otherwise awful movies.

    In particular the first five minutes or so feel like they were written by a completely different person to the rest of the film (or at least was written much earlier when Kyuranger was still being developed). A lot of returning characters (both actors or just suits) were wasted if not straight-up insulted. This also applies to Amazon Neo, who made his debut here before Amazons S2 aired, only to get his ass kicked by Ex-Aid LEVEL ONE!

    Trying to pull one positive thing from the film...I guess Amu/ZyuohTiger had her best fight choreography ever in this. They don't bother with CGI powers or goofy "beast unleashed" gloves, they just let the stunt actress get on with it and she gave a (Showa) Amazon sort of performance that seemed more animal-like than any fight in Zyuohger.
