    So the "Dinobots" are on Team Gridman.
    I honestly thought they were going to be villains upon 1st glance, but no.

    Granted, not a bad thing.

    That was my impression, too.

    I figured that maybe they’d be won over by mid season, but there was just something really menacing about how Samurai Snarl was watching Yuta in that first episode that just felt villainous.

    Surely, there are some twists in store, but I don’t know if there will actually be much exchanging of allegiances after some later revelations, but... maybe.

    Seems pretty uneventfull villain of the week show so far imo.
    Here's a few thoughts:
    Could Rikka or Sho be a kajou?
    And the kajou that impaled Gridman at that?
    Just because there seems to be a connection hinted between Rikka and Akane and Yuta woke up in Rikka's place.
    And on the other had Sho has that whole SG Sideswipe (used to be on the other side) thing going on.
    Would make things a little more interesting if one of his friends was his nemesis and nobody remembers.
    I don't remember whether it was stated if Anti was the first humanoid kajou the villains created.
    Anti is pretty cool. He's like: you replacing me by other guys? Fuck that shit! Ima gonna kill gridman and nobody else!

    Mostly, I’m wondering if this is a retread of Zegapain, with more hormones.

    And, I think Anti is the first Kaiju shapeshifter, but I’m not sure I’d take anything to be reliably known, yet.

    At this time there are more questions than even the possibility of wellfounded conjecture.
    Hopefully the mystery will amount to something.

    Hoping for more anti in the next episode.
    It's cool how he behaves like Akane's faithful servant even though she replaced him.
    He's like: I can do it, boss. Give me a chance. You'll see :lol

    Well, this was a great worldbuilding episode.
    Also, we now know Rikka hasn't got a clue to what extent her mother really doesn't give a fuck.
    Seems Akane might be the sole survivor of a global genocide by real Kaijou or something and she created some fantasy world inside her brain.
    And my man Anti got to be awesome again :lol 
    And did Rikka buy the Matrix?

    I think by rights if they are referencing Transformers, at some point some of the Kaijou should homage the Terrorcons.

    She's a reference to a kaiju from Ultraman I think, the hoodie looks like the shell.
    Though if you want we could all pretend it's RID 15 Grimlock.

    Let's.
    Cause she's awesome (she the only character that got this show moving forward so far) and scary as hell.

    Damn this episode was amazing.


    As for the little girl, I’m pretty sure she is based off of one of the original Kaiju. The says herself that she’s been around for a long time, and that her and her predacessor owe a lot to Yuta(Gridman.)

    The kaiju girl is based off a kaiju and a musical girl who both appeared in the 6th episode of the 1993 Gridman.

    And now they re-appear in episode 06 of the new version. That’s clever.

    Although, I would wonder whether or not Trigger's unique art style would work for a show about fighting robots.

    I'm sure it could, although I'm sure the Transformers would have a strong Studio Ox-like aesthetic and be very stylized (arguably in a good way).

    Yeah, it makes sense to rework Gridman into something a bit more like Zegapain, but it’s also worth remembering that there’s a reason the Big O had the ending that it did and it wasn’t a happy circumstance that led to its writing. Still, if things go really well, this could be as interesting as Rahxephon and Shin Seiki Yori.

    Also, the UltraWikia states that the expository Kaiju is named Anoshiras II. While that’s probably meant to reference how the original beast had a second appearance in the origina show, it should be interesting to see how much of the old world remains or what of it is remembered.

    Pity there's not as much attention to the music so far.
    The music was really amazing in klk.
    But what there is great. The intro really swings.
