Team Spirit - Shinkenger Okay Discussion

This episode is the perfect example of how you can have every scene a clear counterpart to a scene in Shinkenger without any scene being 100% cut-and-paste.

I think that Antonio having to have a different profession, combined with not having to rush late-first-block episodes' scripts so much, is allowing the show to build itself more.

Man, the Claw Zord moves around a whole lot more than Ebizou ever did. I approve.

Also, I'm remembering right that the Shinken episode was about "Takeru doesn't value his kagemusha life but THAT IS STILL SECRET so we interpreted his insistence on being the only one to fall to gedou differently at the time" right? Or was the TEAMWORK YAY LETS ALL BECOME MONSTERS scene the same as in Shinken?

(I should really start rewatching sometime. Yeah.)

I agree with that statement alot actually. I think that the story being what it was translated better without the "Tono angst"

If I remember correctly they all wanted to do so an Takeru was all " I'll do it so you don't have to" sort thing but it ended up the same really. I've been randomly rewatching Shinkenger when Samurai started, to see what was changed or not, now? i'm just sorta rewatching for fun.

I was most happy about Antonio/Dekker tbh. I mean, it was my favorite thing in Shinkenger when Genta and Juuzo interacted.

Although I kind of hope the writers handle Jayden's character well later in the series since this episode was supposed to foreshadow/give basis to the second Takeru/Juuzo fight.

Major love for Ebizou, it's the only Zord of PR I've ever actually wanted.
