7 Thoughts on Uchuu Sentai Kyuuranger Episode 22: "The Legendary Savior's True Self"

I didn't realize just how much happened in this episode until I tied to condense it all into just seven thoughts.  With the exception of a handful of episodes, Kyuuranger has kept its foot on the gas almost since episode one--with a perfect mix of plot and character development to keep me drawn in.  It's almost like an apology for all the series between it and Kyoryuger.

Bottom of the Pile: July 26th, 2017

And we back and we back and we back....

If you didn't know, this is Bottom of the Pile, the oldest column on Jumping in Headfirst, where I take the week's comics and do my imitation of commentary--it can be anything from silly comments and observations all the way up to mini-reviews.   Why Bottom of the Pile?  Because I believe in saving the best comics for last, so if you're looking at these, these are usually seven to twelve of the best comics of the week.

If you like this column, please do me a favor and share it on Facebook or Twitter.

Here's what we're going to do: I'm going to try as hard as I can not to make this post a bunch of exclamation points, and you're not going to get upset when I inevitably fail, alright?  Let's go, team!

Anime Picks: Hina Logi: From Luck and Logic

A few quick and dirty reviews of my picks of the new season, including whether or not I'm still watching them after their first episodes. We're going to start off with the show that got a head start on the summer season and premiered at launch, Hina Logi: From Luck & Logic

Hina Logi is supposed to be a spin-off to the original Luck and Logic series, a fantasy-based series that had battles through card games.  I'd meant to get into the original, I decided I'd just jump straight into the sequel and if it appealed, I could always go back and watch the original.

Too bad Hina Logi was almost criminally boring.  I'm not against Cute Girls Doing Cute Things, but they didn't really do much at all this episode.  The main character is Princess Liones, who ran away from her father (with the approval of her mother) to go to a private school where she could train her abilities and become a Logicalist, one of many who use their special abilities to protect the world.


7 Thoughts About Kyuranger Episode 20:

Welp, we're at the twenty episode mark.  Time to get serious!

7 Thoughts About Kyuranger 19: "The Spirit of the Forest Planet, Keel"

Episode 20 is coming either today or early tomorrow. 

 1.) This, fellow viewers, is what writers like to call a "ticking clock".  The Kyuranger's success over the past four months has caused Jark Matter to get serious about trying to win; this has resulted in them sending what looks like hundreds of Consumarz to drain Earth of its energy, fast

The team rushes off to try and fight it, but Xiao warns that it would be more expedient for them to merely find the last globe necessary to track down the Argo and win.  And so now the Argo goes from a thing that would merely be nice to have, to a necessary weapon in their battle against Jark Matter, because if they don't find it in time, Earth dies.  If I had to guess, I'd say we're two, maximum three episodes away from the Argo's first real appearance.

2.) Setting aside the hilarity of a squid squirting an arc of ink outwards and somehow getting it to create a rainbow which "clearly" symbolizes the &q…
