Out with the old, in with the new: Super Sentai

GoGo Sentai Boukenger is over and TV-Nihon has subbed the final episode. It was a good ending, especially the un-suited rollcall! How cool was that? And the epilogue with Akashi going into space. Masumi was all, "Eiji! Our boyfriend is leaving!" I pretended that all his lines about, "When you get back, your place might be gone," had a pissy boyfriend subtext and that made me very happy.

The BoukenRed - GekiRed handoff almost made me tear up. I liked Boukenger okay, but I was really mostly watching for Akashi. He's the coolest of the cool and even made me feel a little cougar-ish. Okay, a lot cougar-ish.

Jyuken Sentai Gekiranger begins. Subs are out for the first two episodes. Wow, what a great show! Sentai isn't my favourite toku, but this looks like it will be amazing fun. Jan is hilarious and cute and somehow not annoying. I love the uniforms, but I think the suits will have to grow on me. And I'm still weirded out that there are only three of them to start with.

The fighting looks great! I really like the martial arts motif and I hope that means we'll get more wire-work. The roll call is okay -- a bit wordy, though. And I like the way it's set up with two opposing factions. That should focus the story a bit more. I felt like Boukenger was a bit too scattered and some people's storylines suffered for it. (Mostly Masumi.)

I cannot express how cool it is that their mecha isn't really a mecha, but is made of their own powers. Just. Freaking. Awesome. ♥

Confidential to Mele: Won't you come be my Love Warrior? I promise I'll treat you better than Rio the Emo Goth King.

I feel like a traitor saying this, but so far, I like Gekiranger better than Kamen Rider Den-O.
