I've been slowly watching the series again over the past month after the first handful of episodes did nothing to keep my interest. If I had to sum the whole thing in one word I'd easily say "Generic". The series did start keeping my attention the further along things went, and once the big bad Dino Geist started taking charge I figured things would really start ramping up... but after Exkaiser get his big new super form Dino Geist just goes back into the shadows for a long time until the last few episodes where things start picking up again... only to come to a satisfying, but kinda predictable end. I really wish I had a better feel for how Dino Geist went out, but like most of the bots in the series I just didn't feel like his character existed to be anything other than a big bad who wouldn't take no for an answer. The heroes, the kaisers themselves, were even worse as I can't pick out ANY characterization from any of them other than standard heroic nonsense. Exkaiser exemplifies this as he's the one who's around trying to connect and empathize with the humans, but when it's time to do his duties and ward off the geisters he just becomes this super corny knight of justice willing to defend whatever stupid thing the baddies are after in a given episode. Sadly the humans end up being the most interesting characters in the show, but even they are about as 2 dimensional as it comes. The most entertaining thing I found as the series went on and sadly the one thing that kept me interested was mostly just waiting to see what the geisters were intent to steal and how with each passing episode and I think it peaked with them trying to steal christmas presents using a giant roided out santa robot that could only shout "MELLY GLEESMAS!" I swear I nearly laughed myself out of my seat on that one. Really though the most I can really say I felt was redeemable about the show was that it planted the seeds for more and better Brave series to come... and I'm not sure where to go next. I already have J-Decker and Gaogaigar under my belt, but I cant pick the next series I should give a shot. I want to keep going in order, but there's something about Fighbird that just doesn't click with me just looking at it.
