Uchu Sentai Kyuranger – please be good
December 11, 2016
Please let the 2017 Sentai be a good one.
It's really gotten bad to be at the point where I have gone 18 months without giving Kamen Rider more than an occasional and stopped watching the Super Sentai after the fourth week (I had to force myself to watch it that long). Seriously the Kamen Rider Ghost theme was a good idea but they just failed to put it all together. Drive was a brilliant series in my mind so maybe I am a little biased.
However 2016's Super Sentai has been awful. The mecha looks like something a 3 year old would build out of Duplo Bricks, there are far too many ideas mashed together in there and really is does seem like South park's theory of how Family Guy's creators come up with their ideas. Hey let's put (spinning the wheel) animal people against (spin the wheel) game playing villains. It did just occur to me if they had just taken the villains and given them to Kamen Rider they've have gotten it right.
And had they done that maybe there's a chance I would have enjoyed Ex-Aider too. Alas it seems that the standard for Kamen Rider has fallen for the second year in a row.
