While it seems to be accepted that ratings are falling every year now, I don’t think it helps that the shows are more commercial than ever - this year, we’ve had multiple ad breaks in the show (making episodes shorter) and several movie tie-in episodes. It’s not surprising to me if audiences want to buy the toys but aren’t that interested in the show itself.

My only complaint about the final battle of Gokaiger (aside from the fact that Gai doesn’t have many Gokai Changes) is that the battle seemed pretty one-sided in favor of the Gokaigers. Ackdos Gill only managed to hit Ahim and Gai ONCE and for the rest of the battle the Gokaigers showered him with near perfect attacks. There was ZERO sense of struggle.

I didn’t like how Right was portrayed in the Police episode of Toqger, I know it’s in character for him to want the meal, but it just comes off as Right being selfish and being oblivious to whats going on in front of him, caring about the food more than his own team.

Even though I disliked Go-Busters as a whole, Masato Jin is so special to me for reasons I can’t put my finger on. He was so full of life even though he knew he didn’t have long to go and that speaks to me on a personal level.

One of my biggest complaints about Goseiger is how they handled the multiple villains. Unlike in Boukenger where they were working at the same time, Goseiger pulled off a DBZ and had the villains appear completely out of nowhere after the last one died, and everytime that happened it felt like a cheap way to keep the series going. Thankfully Megaforce fixed this by having the villains (at least two groups) work together and at the same time. When this happened, i was both surpried and happy.

We got an Ask saying that shows are shorter than they used to be because of all the commercials. Has somebody done the research for this? I went to a few episodes of older sentai (timeranger, gaoranger, abaranger) and compared them to tokkyuger and kyoryuger episodes but they all generally have a 23/24 minute run time. I guess the credits and opening are longer now?

I would love to see another Kamen Rider whose gimmick is flying like Skyrider. I know some Heisei Riders can fly, but it’s not really their main gimmick. If Kamen Rider Drive is successful, I hope Toei would be confident to make a jet fighter themed Kamen Rider one day.

Emperor Z is cuter than any supervillain should be allowed to be.

Seeing the Turbo Falcon Megazord toy makes me wish the Machalcon had a mech form in Gokaiger.

Am I the only one who missed that Ankh said the animals for OOO final, end of series transformation and not the normal voice? I assume it’s because Ankh’s consciousness was in one of the metals.
