First Impressions: Express Sentai ToQGer

May 7th, 2014

tokkyuger_headerI’ve just finished watching the first seven episodes of the new Super Sentai show, Express Sentai ToQGer.  Yes, I’m going to spell it like that because it’s easier than typing out Tokkyuger all the time. Of course, by the time anyone reads this, I’ll probably have seen up to episode 13, plus the Express Sentai ToQGer VsKamen Rider Gaim Spring Vacation Combining Special, I guess that’s the problem being ridiculously prolific.

So here are my first thoughts of the series.

Tokusatsu: Too Traditional

March 31st, 2014

tokusatsu_There aren’t a lot of tokusatsu podcasts out there, there are only two that I know of in fact.  One of them, the first one I ever started listening to, kind of drives me crazy because the hosts are complete tokusatsu traditionalists and on a recent episode, they really went into why they want all tokusatsu, specifically Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, to be pretty much the same year after year after year. I absolutely do not want that at all.

First Impressions: Kamen Rider Gaim #1-7

December 20th, 2013

Kamen Rider Gaim2I wrote previously about the complaints in the tokusatsu community about the newest Kamen Rider series, called Kamen Rider Gaim, and how much they hated the theme and pretty much everything about it.  Of course, they hadn’t ever seen a single episode, they were just reacting to some of the information that was coming out about the new series and I was pretty clear that I was going to wait and see.  Well, I did and here’s my initial reaction to the first seven episodes of Kamen Rider Gaim.
