JM: It's that time again, boys and girls! The time where SentaiSeiya and I rant about this week's Super Sentai episode! This week was KyoryuBlack's special episode, where we get to see him finally open up to the team and overcome some insecurities that appeared out of nowhere!

JM: The episode opens up like most, with Ian (KyoryuBlack) on a date with a girl, while he nonchalantly hits on another girl like a boss. Through a series of flashbacks we see that Ian was once an adventurer who lost a friend because he missed a shot with his handgun.

SS: Did somebody say adventure ranger?  Gogo gogo, ready go! Susume Boukenger!... Sorry for the interuption. Back to Jmann.

JM : This is the main plotline of the episode because Ian must learn to face his inner demons (and the actual monster who killed his friend) and trust in himself to never miss his mark!

JM: Overall, the episode was very enjoyable, if very predictable.

SS: Very predictable.  I think that out of all the episodes so far, this has been my least favorite story.

JM:The action scenes were really nice, and I like how Ian's lowest moment in life directly lead to him being chosen by Parasagun to become a Kyoryuger. We were also able to see Daigo continue to be the glue that holds the team together through anything.

SS: Daigo is the King ! He excels at ma-king friends, coo-king and ta-king enemies down!


JM: We finally got to see the Kyoryuger's combined super weapon, and it's pretty cool, I guess.

SS: I think it is called the Shieldan Slasher. It is unique to say the least. I am not sure I am sold on the colorful dino faces on the side of the blade.  It is like, " Fear my aweseom blade... that my little sister made in kindergarten!"

JM:The real joy of this episode was seeing a Western-Themed Kyoryugin. That entire battle was actually gorgeous to watch. I love it when scenes happen at sunset.

SS: It was cool to see Kyoryujin Western, though I was a bit dissapointed that the finisher was not more uniqure. It was similar to the one performed in previous episode, when Zakutor combiend with the Kyoryujin.  Once again, Gabutyra chomping and  regurgitating Zakutor and Parasagan's batteries was just as odd as it was in the first episode. We get it Toei/Bandai! Buy your stuff, but remember that will have to manually insert the batteries into the Gabutyra in order to get the unique sounds from each Jyudenryu... I am sorry Toei/Bandai! Please take my money!


JM: I can't wait for next week's episode!

SS:If only episode 5 were out already for Jmann to enjoy! Haha.... Woah. Deja vu.
