Oooo god.... They have an explanation as to why TwoKaiser looks like a Gokaiger and its brilliant.
They met the Gokaigers and just really liked the suit design[. Its a good suit design so I understand.
EDIT:
Also Flint needs to become another ranger. She's already a fun character along with Vox.

If we do get any additional members they pretty much have to be Ninja and/or Train themed as those are the two major recurring themes in Super Sentai that aren't currently represented in the team*

*indeed just realized Twokaiser is the opposite of the rest of the team in that regard, the others represent recurring themes, while he's based on one that is unique in the franchise(also just realized what the connecting factor was between him having Ohranger and Shikenger secondary themes, both series have a geometric shapes thing going on, which I guess means if he gets an upgrade down the line it might be Zyuohger themed)

Also: I've been passing the episodes on to my co-worker and he's been showing them to his 7 year old son who is loving flipping his lid over them. I've ordered some Zenkaiger goods from Amazon Japan to give him as a gift as well.

Well I meant besides him, it's all but a given that he's either going to join the team eventually or he'll die and his power becomes an upgrade for Zenkaiser

It kind of is odd how it ends so abruptly, but I wasn't super happy with what was happening for the last 20 odd episodes that I was kind of just glad it was over.

Ok. I have to ask this question about this weeks Zenkaiger episode. Is there something I was missing with the mochi thing or is it as Juran said just some weirdly specific chaos?

It's mostly specific chaos, but is also meant to coincide with the holiday on May 5th, Children's Day

I also distinctively remember enjoying Paradise Lost a lot more than Faiz itself, though that was years ago.

The show so far is really good and I am enjoying it and everything, but truthfully "weirdly specific chaos" can apply to any of these episodes so far.

The Bullton fight in Ultraman Z was really fun. Nice combo of Gamma Future shenanigans and Beta Smash being a goofy wrestler man, not to mention Bullton being its weird utensil waving self.

oh poo poo something just occurred to me. Ultraman in Shin Ultraman is based off the original concept for Ultraman, with all the revealing details of a guy in a suit and the toyetic color timer removed, right?

In the original plan for Ultraman, wasn't his mouth supposed to move when he talked?

Yes it was. Also Shin Ultraman is based on a 3D body scan of Bin Furuya.

They've come back to the opening mouth thing a few times, though very infrequently. One weird case was Ultra Father at the start of mebius -and NO WHERE else after that.

I went back and watched the Gokaiger crossover episodes of Zyuohger since I wasn't really paying attention to toku stuff at the time and so missed that they'd happened and they were fun. I love those rascals, it was nice to see them again in something "new"

Gai on his knees begging the ToQger kids for their Ranger Keys was hilarious, and then just showing up after like "wait, why are you guys even fighting" lol

Has any of the Akibaranger cast done anything significant since S2 wrapped? It might be fun if they came back for a movie or special or something but Iím not sure how feasible that would be at this point.

I know Red's done a bunch of roles after checking but they're mostly dramas iirc. I haven't checked the others.

Niki Niki Geki. The torrents aren't very active, but each episode has a Mega upload on their website.

The torrents might be more active now, it's been a while since I checked.
