    Den-O won me over as fast as Kabuto did. *happy* I adore the fact that it's trying to be anything but Kabuto 2.0. And it seems they're playing the Ryoutarou/Imajin relationships just as I'd hoped when I saw the debut. If it ends well it'll definitely be a top-3 series for me (Blade, Kabuto, Den-O).

    It's just a damned fun show. Highly recommended.

    Haven't checked out Gekiranger yet as I'm still 20 episodes backlogged on my Boukenger viewing. :cry

    It won't be hard for them to surpass Kabuto and Boukenger, I couldn't even make it through those two.

    Think of it this way. At least by the time you get to Gekiranger, you won't have to stop after only a couple episodes.

    Boukenger was actually one of my favorite sentai series so far, it's going to be hard for Gekiranger to top it. But I usually watch with my girlfriend, who happens to be out of town, so I've had to sit on the last episode of Boukenger for 3 days now and I can't start up Gekiranger.

    Kamen Rider I'm sorry to say I haven't tried getting into yet. I'm going to try and correct that soon.

    Not a fan of anime shows, but I did like those disk animals so much I tracked all of them down... my first non-TF/Brave purchases in YEARS. I think they're from Kamen Rider, but don't know if they're even related to what you're talking about, though.

    Kamen Rider isn't anime. It's live action.

    I haven't started on either one yet. I still need to finish watching KR Faiz. I finally got the episodes just haven't sat down and finished it.

    Kamen Rider Hibiki is a Kamen Rider show, so yeah they're related. But yeah, its not anime but if you like science fiction, then Kamen Rider should be enjoyable.

    I would be watching it if it was someone other than TV-Nihon doing the subbing.

    Untill I'm banned from doing so. I'm expressing my opinion. You always have the option of ingoring it.

    Getting this thread back on topic, lets all patiently wait for Gekiranger 3 and Den-o 6. Anybody got opinions about Den-o so far? I didn't start disliking Kabuto until the late 30's, but Den-o has done more than Kabuto did to make me happy so far.

    Watched the first two Gekirangers with my girlfriend... wow, what a change from Bouken, a lot more light hearted, especially with Sha-fu as the mentor... damn, what I'd give to see Sha-fu and Doggie Kruger one on one. I was concerned going in because it had a feel similar to Magiranger, which I didn't manage to watch all the way through because it was a little too light hearted and goofy. I think I'm really going to like this one, especially if it keeps it's emphasis on the martial arts in the battles.

    You're going to regret not watching MagiRanger, its easily the best toku ive ever seen.

    As for Gekiranger, 3 is out and it kicked ass. All the montages with Red were excellent and the small and big fighting scenes were great. What will be the big thing with the Five Venoms-ken? I can hardly wait.

    Geki 4 and Den-o 7 are both out, and yet again they both impressed me.

    The number of things revealed in Gekiranger 4 were pretty cool, although it seems like something we would normally have to wait 30 episodes to see.

    Den-o 7 was just plain hilarious, especially the little spat between Momtaros and Urataros on DenLiner.

    I watched some of it, mostly the early episodes and after they introduced the Infershia Pantheon, but a lot of it was just too goofy to watch the whole series, especially with things like MagiPink turning into a pepper shaker or electric fan to attack... Just too over the top for my tastes.

    heh, what drew me into the series were the characters. Its not every day we get a show with a family as the main cast, and seeing the interactions between them both on and off the fighting field were great.

    Super Sentai has always had silly aspects in it, and MagiRanger was no exception. But opinions vary, so i'll shut up now.
