Farewell Beast Morphers, Hello Ryusoulger!


This just reminds me of how I practically chewed Megafarce out in spite of the hot girls. Now just thinking about Beast Morphers -- I even wonder why hasn't Power Rangers been pulled out of Nickelodeon? The summer break is among the many reasons why I end up disliking Power Rangers even more than ever. Then I decided to check out Beast Morphers and I even wonder what Hasbro plans with Ben and Betty -- are they doomed to be forever beaten up by the writers? Comedic characters are okay but let them do something useful other than getting blown up or fail. I mean, they can still be comedic while delivering the Beast Morphers team their upgrades!

Then I watched Ryusoulger a few days ago. I don't find Ichika Osaki hot -- I still find Jacqueline Scislowski way prettier. But you know what happened to Megafarce, right? I still chewed it super hard and burned it beyond its ashes without mercy! Beast Morphers after a few episodes made me think I'd probably rewatch Go-Busters even if it's not perfect -- no Super Sentai season is perfect all the while I still think it's better than Power Rangers. Just that the number of bad season count for Power Rangers has really been more than the good ones -- all the I while I still acknowledge Super Sentai still has its mistakes! There will be a few times that I'd still praise Power Rangers to a certain extent (such as having a good cast) though I'm afraid the 32-40 episode format for superhero shows derails room for development -- my favorite example being how Lightspeed Rescue and Time Force have a decent cast yet their limited room just restricts them. It's like can we really and seriously get that much development for a 32-40 episode format show? Though I want to believe that like Metalder (which got cancelled due to lack of ratings) that both Lightspeed Rescue and Time Force may have been Vindicated by History. I don't even think they suck -- just that I tend to hate the idea of the 40 episode format. Same reason why I'd watch Combattler V over Voltes V too!

So what's with Ryusoulger? I can't believe that I'm actually watching it! I admit, I didn't immediately watch Kyoryuger and I still have my bad vibes on Daigo Kiryu though said show has impressive action scenes. Just that, I still think Gokaiger and Go-Busters are still way better than it. Even Abaranger which is ten years behind it is better for me in terms of storytelling. Yet, I can't deny Kyoryuger had good toy sales but I didn't like the merchandise designs. Ryusoulger now features sharper swords and better mecha designs than Kyoryuger. I also like the suits better though there's some obvious Kyoryuger references such as the color coding are there too. But it seems to throw back to Gingaman and Zyuranger to a certain extent. I do find the first episode impressive but more on a nostalgic scale -- I just think of how I began playing Dragon Quest VIII when I first got a PS2 a decade ago!

I would probably still consider myself as a person who doesn't like Power Rangers. Sure, I watched some of them but just that it's not my cup of tea. I just feel like that I'm better of just ignoring it considering how much I've accumulated years of disliking it!
