I had high hopes that 01 would end strong following the past few eps, but with this virus coming in I fear that it might not be strong, but only decent.

If it even gets an ending at all, I still see the possibility of Zero-One and Kiramager just getting canceled as being depressingly likely

At the very least they will hack together some kind of ending tbh. Like 01 can rush towards a big bad and final fight/resolution in like 5 episodes if they want IMO.
Like f/e ohnoez MBJR.N freed the arc, it's a rider now, and it's pure evil. Ohno we need MBJR.N to defeat it, talky episode to align the heroes and explain Jin's revival. Big fights and done.

Well in this hypothetical cancellation scenario I was figuring they'd probably give them some sort of conclusion later like in a movie or something

That sounds pretty likely. They seem to really be reaching to make the Metsuboys (and Naki) more sympathetic and are shifting all the blame onto Gai and the Ark itself. The writers are so confused about what they even want to say about AI that they just decided to make every Humagear a blameless victim that bears no responsibility for any “bad” choice they make. Even Hirobi is getting this treatment after spending the entire series as a remorseless terrorist.

At this point, the only Humagear to stay a villain of his own volition is that guy from the movie.

It used to be really popular on this site to hate furries hardcore, right about the time Dekaranger started airing. These days that kink will probably get you made fun of, but unless you display mental disorders we spend our energy on more important battles.

Y'all they are not going to "rush through" to an ending on Zero-One when the follow-up series is in stalled production too. There's nothing to replace it with.

Obviously not, but in the case that say filming and production opens up again near the normal start of a rider season they will likely still shorten 01. Gotta sell the toys of the next hopefully full length show after all.

Either that or they continue as normal and the next season (and by extension every season afterwards) will just start a little later than usual.

In any case, I wouldn’t be surprised if this hiatus as some kind of permanent effect regarding the scheduling of Toei’s Big Three (Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, Precure).

Yeah I guess, and even if they want to get back to the old cycle they can for example plan the 2021 show to be shorter from the start (like Decade) or slightly shorten 2021 and 2022's show so get back there.

I can't really imagine them cancelling Kirameiger, since at this point there have to be a bunch of unreleased future toys for it sitting in a warehouse somewhere. It's not like kids will just forget about it after a month or two anyway.

Also, like with Kamen Rider they have nothing to replace it with at the moment. More likely it'll either just get its episode count reduced a bit or the following season will start later than normal.

Especially since there's 7 million toys of Zero-One's final form and Ark-Zero sitting in a warehouse somewhere. Bandai isn't going to give up that sweet toy advertising space when production starts back up.

I mean Drive had the same problem, setting up Roidmutes as elemental monsters driven by their obsession and then ending on "but it was we sinful humans who tragically made you that way." I didn't mind the boss ones as characters but the dying heart-to-heart (pardon) still struck me as really weird.

Then yes in a timeline where the lockdown extends to infinity they might cancel both shows.

It worked for Heart since he was always the most “noble” of the bad guys, but the others were kind of a stretch.

It sounds like what Zero-One should be trying to say is "there are good and bad humagears, just like there are good and bad humans, but we shouldn't let the decisions of the bad ones change how we treat the good ones". Maybe with some extremely clumsy and heavy-handed race metaphors mixed in.

Agreed for Faizyuuki. I hated the Ryuki suit, but this looks nice.

The one I really enjoy is Blue Ryugito. I’m not big on any of Agito’s official forms, but this one could pass as a power-up easily.

totally. Along with my other favorite trope "chinese immigrants are ok to play with" its probably the only real subtle messaging that reoccurs in showa era toku. Most of the messaging is pretty overt: Work together, play together, live together, fight together. And the most important and blatant one: if you beat up the bad guy, everyone will be happy.

It's a pretty good movie in a character focused, YA kind of way. Not so great if you just want Power Rangers stuff from it. I was pleasantly surprised by it and am sad we're never gonna get a sequel with that cast.

I enjoyed it quite a bit because they made it very american. The powerranger casting has always been pretty good about being representative but I felt the backstories they fleshed in really got me invested in the characters. Even the revenge porn lady.

It was fine, way better than it probably should have been

The Breaking Bad Guy as "Zordon, but he sucks" was actually a good decision imo.

I think their timing regarding which scene to start blasting the Power Rangers theme song was off. They should have had the guitar riff instrumental start off when the zords launched, but they saved it for later and it felt shoe-horned in.
