    "It's Morphin' Time!"

    [​IMG]

    Thirteen years ago, the computer controlling the energy source called the Enetron was infected by a virus that caused it to create the evil energy being known as Messiah who wishes to take over mankind and create a world made for machines.

    In the present day, the Energy Administration Bureau sends out its special spy team known as the Go-Busters and their Buddyroids to battle Messiah and its underlings collectively known as Vaglass to prevent further viral incursions onto the Enetron.


    Busters, Ready Go!

    Mission 1
    "Special Mission Sentai, Assemble!"

    The evil Vaglass organization attacks the city's giant energy source known as the Enetron. Ryuji, the Blue Buster, and Yoko, the Yellow Buster, fight back their forces, but when they summon the giant robot known as a Megazord, another Go-Buster appears, Hiromu Sakurada, the Red Buster.

    Okay, I'm not even seven minutes into the show and so far we have:
    It's Morphin' Time
    Roger, rabbit
    Metaroid

    Nevermind that the bad guys base and robot designs love like something out of Evangelion. I mean there are way too many pop culture hints that this could be an accident.

    What do you guys think?

    Otherwise, while I will miss the love-letter-to-all-Sentai that was Gokaiger, Go-Buster ain't lookin' too shabby.

    ...and the ED song is definitely giving off a Haruhi ED 1 vibe.

    Absolutely loved it. Love the touches like real-time henshin scenes and a single, transforming super robot. The action is also quite awesome with lots of dynamic effects, and the villains seem really cool.

    Awesome touch with the simultaneous monster fight.

    I really liked the camera work for the giant stuff. I guess this they're really trying to change up the look of the franchise.

    That first transformation must have been a pain to shoot.

    "A Promise Made 13 Years Ago"

    When both Yoko and Hiromu are taken out of action due to their weaknesses, Ryuji must work on his own during an Enetron leak while dealing with his own weakness.

    The one thing that I like about this series is how it is differentiating itself from Gokaiger. While Gokaiger was more "fantasy" sentai this series seems more grounded with rules on how the character's powers operate. The other aspect of the series I find engaging is how the backstory of the characters not only goes on to show their age difference (with the blue one being the eldest, as opposed to Hiromu) but also enforces how their flaws counter-balance their powers. It seems like the writers of this sentai put a lot of thought into the "how" and "why" of this series.

    Oh, so much fun. I like how it's pacing itself with introducing the main "Zords". Normally, they introduced the fully combined form by the second or third episode, but here they're pacing themselves out. Also love how the other two Busters were involved with rescuing the populace. No conveniently empty buildings here.

    Last time I can recall the Sentai having to save the populace was the adaption that became Power Rangers: Lightspeed Rescue. however i really like that they are introducing the flaws of each individual and allowing us to actually meet them before they have them fully become a team. It's cool that each Zord has there own Megazord mode, and while i don't like that the villains have their own Megazords instead of having the defeated monsters grow, it is nice to see a change from time-to-time. It's no Gokaiger, but it would difficult to surpass Gokaiger, and it's a nice change of pace.

    Saban's Power Rangers Wild Force just called in. They want their banana throwing gorilla back on the Anamarium, and they want him changed back green. Seriously, that's what this reminded me of. The moves were basically identical in every fashion except that this one can also turn into a car and is blue instead of green.

    It was weird that they had nearly an hour to defeat the monster before the enemy Megazord arrived this time.

    While I like the slower pace, I honestly would like to see them combine together before episode 10, which is the pace were probably on at this point before they combine.

    Last week's episode:
    Mission 5
    "Dangerous Overheated Rampage!"

    Ryuji and Yoko escort an Enetron tank across the city when Tireroid is sent after it. However, something happens to Ryuji to cause him to turn against his own team.


    And this week's episode:


    Mission 6
    "Combine! Go-Buster-Oh"

    Hiromu has difficulties in forming Go-Buster-Oh for the first time with Ryuji and Yoko, and Enter sends the Sprayroid to obtain an Enetron tank.

    Mission 7
    "Bad Maintenance on the Ace?!"

    A rookie mechanic takes over maintenance of the Go-Buster Ace, making Hiromu feel unsure if he is ready. The Densharoid attacks, and there is a problem when sortieing the Go-Buster Ace to combat the new Vaglass Megazord.


    In case anyone is wondering about a thread for Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger (which premiered yesterday), I'll make one at some point. Just not yet.
