In the morpher, it says other names and phrases. KyoryuCyan seems to be Aqua Ranger, KyoryuViolet to be Purple Ranger and Deathryuger to be Talon Ranger. Talon is a claw of a bird or dinosaur. Of course as we already know, KyoryuGray is Graphite.

By the way, I recently got my job back last week and might not be able to update as soon as I used to or do as many special weeks as before. Of course, as a teacher, I have 2 weeks off for the December holidays.

Villains Week: Sixth Ranger Bring Villain

I noticed a pattern. Sometimes when a sixth ranger arrives, a new villain does.

Lunar Wolf/Zenaku  /// Gao Silver/Loki
Of course they were connected, an ancient warrior cursed with a mask to become a wolf demon. The Rangers saved him, and both heroes kept themselves away from our heroes.

 In Hurricanger only, when Shurikenger came in, a new villain Satarakura had as well. In Ninja Storm, Satarakura's counterpart Shimazu came way after Green Samurai Ranger was introduced.
Omega Ranger/Morgana
When the Omega Ranger arrived, Mora had been changed to Morgana. She brought along other monsters but she stuck around unlike her Dekaranger counterpart.

Solaris Knight/Imperius /// MagiShine/Meemy
In Mahou Sentai Magiranger, when Nai and Mere push the Magiranger into a cave, they release Hikaru the frog and Memmy. They fought long ago. Same thing in Mystic Force. But Imperius tried tricking Udonna in his old form.

Mercury Ranger/Fearcats /// BoukenSilver/Questers
In Boukenger, Eiji chased the Ashu Tribe, him being half Ashu. They were then turned into Questers by Gahja. In Operation Overdrive, the aliens Fearcats terrorized Tyzonn and they were upgraded by Flurious.

Go-On Wings/Hiramechimedes
 Well this kind of happened in RPM too as Venjix got a new suit that was Hiramechimedes in Go-Onger but it wasn't a new villain or character. In Go-Onger when Hiramechimedes came along, so did Go-On Wings.

Robo Knight/Mutants /// Gosei Knight/Yuumajuu
 When the Yuumajuu and Mutants appeared, Robo Knight/Gosei Knight did too.

Villains Week: Actors that played Good and Bad

I have commented on actors who played different roles but here are villains or lackies that the actors also played good guys, allies or mentors.

Carol Hoyt portrayed the Turbo Ranger's mentor Dimitria and Divatox for the first half of Turbo. When Hilary Turner returned, she remained as Dimitria for Turbo.

Grant McFarlane portrayed adult Sensei (as another actor played the twins at a younger age), provided the voice of Sensei as a guinea pig and Lothor.

Katrine Devine first portrayed Marah in Ninja Storm and then Cassidy in Dino Thunder, she portrayed both in the teamup episodes. 

 Mesogog/Anton Mercer
Latham Gaines portrayed Dr. Anton Mercer and put on the costume for Mesogog. I thought it was a suit actor but word is he did.

 Emperor Grumm/Mentor Jii
Rene Naufahu played Emperor Grumm in SPD (we saw his human form once played by himself) and later on played Mentor Jii in Samurai.

Holly Shanahan
Holly Shanahan played LeeLee in Mystic Force and Camile in Jungle Fury. Even though I consider LeeLee a molly-ambigious character, Camile was a villain and LeeLee did end up being good at the end. So I suppose she counts.

Sailor Moon Crystal - Act 10: Moon - Episode Review

Episode Summary:
Luna tells them to prepare to go to the moon. Ami talks about the Scientifics. Rei wonders how they will get to the moon. Minako says she'll explain it later. Ami is happy Usagi is feeling better. At night, Usagi looks at the moon out the window. Her feelings getting stronger, she wants to know about her previous life and save Mamoru. At her house, Usagi welcomes her dad home. She was about to get a donut but he gives her a gift, the Silver Crystal with a chain. They ask if a special boy gave it to her, she says yes. She then fights over a game with Shingo.
Her dad says she is becoming a woman and she will leave them. Her mom doesn't agree. Under Moon Phase 15, the five stand by a fountain. Usagi remembers talking to Mamoru near there. She looks at the broke watch, they promised to trade their handkerchief and watch. Luna's emblem glows and the fountain glows. The five enter the fountain and transform. They hold hands and do the Sailor Teleport (unnamed).
They open their eyes and they are in a shield bubble floating over the Earth heading to the Moon. Luna says they are landing on the Sea of Serenity. They surprisingly can breathe on the Moon. They spot the ruins of the Silver Millennium. They spot the Legendary Sword. Jupiter tries pulling it out to no avail. Mars and Mercury try and it budges. Venus says to leave it to her. She tries pulling out and it finally gives. Blue energy comes out. A voice speaks to the four Guardians, that the sword belongs to them. She thanks Luna. She is Queen Serenity. She says even though she perished, her will has remained thanks to the Points System of the Moon Castle.
She sent Luna and Artemis through suspended animation to Earth and she was waiting for this moment. She explains Serenity used to go to the Earth for the greens. She found love with Endymion. The Moon Castle appears to them. She would sneak to Earth and the four Guardians would catch her. Venus said it was their happiest days. Their mission was to protect the Silver Crystal. A variant create nvaded Earth, it was pure evil, they wanted the crystal. They brainwashed Earthlings to get the crystal but Endymion kept his sanity and fought against them. He was stabbed in place of Princess Serenity. She committed suicide with a sword, laying on top of Endymion. Queen Serenity sealed Metallia with the crystal, the Silver Millennium turn to Stone. The country on Earth died out and the history started again.
The evil has been revived. She tells the Princess is the only one to use the true power. Venus tells the Queen that something was drawn into Endymion's body. Moon shows her the crystal. She says her strong wish to save him caused it to happen. He's alive. Usagi is happy and nods. The power depends on her, be proud of being princess and Sailor Moon. She is a human and the true meaning of their rebirth. The four guardians are to protect Moon. Her transmission fades. Luna says to go back home. Moon wants to know the true reason of their rebirth.  
Queen Beryl walks down to Metallia, the Shittenou watch. Kunzite has them follow him. They spot their true ruler. They ask about the symbol on her head. Beryl thinks the crystal banished. Metallia wants to get rid of Endymion. Beryl still wants to use Tuxedo Mask. Metallia says they need more energy. Beryl must do it before the Shittenou regain their true memories. As they hear this, crystals glow on their foreheads. Tehy get a flashback of them saying their names and that they are knights of things, that they will protect Endymion, who counted on them. They were born to Earth to find their master. Beryl says they remember it. They ask if they were used. She said yes. Kunzite tries attacking but she electrcotes them, saying she still needs them. Their crystals turn dark and Beryl brainwashes them to get rid of Serenity. Back at Command Center, they find that Dark Kingdom is underground. The computers go nuts. They find Tokyo has turned to ice. The five Senshi face the Shittenou, they are turning Tokyo into the north pole. Kunzite wants the crystal.  
Kunzite attacks, the Senshi protect Moon. Mars fights Jaedite, Mercury fights Zoisite, Jupiter fights Nephrite and Kunzite fights Venus. Venus tries to reason with Kunzite. She tells them tha tthe Shittenou are not their enemies, that they were the brave knights who served Endymion. They get a flashback of standing before the Knights, they followed Serenity to the Earth and fell in love. They remember and refuse to fight, the brainwashed Shittenou attack them and Moon defends them, after Beryl says they are under her control. She does her speech. Kunzite syas he'll kill her first. Moon takes out her Moon Stick and flies out of the area and does the Healing Escalation, all of Tokyo is healed. Venus says they fight for the princess. They all do speeches. They call their powers and do the Sailor Planet Attack on the four Shittenou. Venus calls them to wake up. Kunzite teleports them out. Mercury says they were close. Moon floats down to Earth with the bubble. Meanwhile, Beryl implores Metallia for power to wake up Mamoru. She grabs his face and says he is under her control now. She tells him to kill Usagi and take the crystal. Later at Crown Arcade, he appears with red eyes.
Episode Review:

 a GREAT episode. This answers so many questions that plagued me since the DiC dub. If Earth had a kingdom, where in history did it exist, and this places it before our history, that Metallia's influence, just made the kingdom be forgotten. Also, that the Shittenou remain alive for the Senshi to pin over them and try to heal them. Moon sure shows she is strong. I am not sure how I feel about her having her dad put the crystal with a chain. So now it looks like Mamoru will be Endou. Next weeks episode is called Endymion. I like that we saw the Earth kingdom and different things like that.


Episode Review: Power Rangers Super Megaforce - The Wrath - Episode Review

Pictures thanks to and Ranger Crew Blog
 Episode Summary:
Ernie bids farewell to Orion, retires his apron and cries. Emma arrives and they walk out. Orion says Earth is a happy place, all he could think was revenge. Emma is sad. Orion says not to be sad he has to say goodbye, be happy they met. They hug. Noah admires the Armada space ship, Orion and Emma arrive, meeting up with the others. Orion says the Armada is decimated so he's going home. Gia has a bag of snacks and mementos from them. Emma gives him pink flowers. Orion says Noah taught him to use his mind, Gia showed him to be tough and caring, Jake can find humor in tough times ("That's why everyone loves me... except for some stubborn people.") and Emma's empathy healed his scars of losing his home. Finally, Troy showed him how to be a Ranger. (Meh) And he gives him his bracelets. (Sixth Rangers keep giving Troy stuff) Emma kisses Orion's cheek.
Orion leaves the planet. Tensou tries to contact Orion but ends up with a transmission from Mavro calling all the ships for a 'real invasion.' The Rangers are called and they rush to the Command Center. The Rangers hear the transmission and Troy recognizes it. Gosei explains he is the dad of Vrak and Vekor and could be hundreds of thousands of ships. Troy says they are over a hundred fighting for Earth (100 vs. 1,000?). Meanwhile, Levira congrats Mavro, one of his cronies says she failed, that she was one of the three bumblers that failed to protect Vekar. Mavro sends her down. The Rangers are on the Sky Ship when Levira arrives in her new Megazord.
They change to the Megazord and fight her. Ninja Zords attack and she blocks them with a shield. They use a Changeman attack (unnamed) against her and destroy the shield. They then call the Fire Smasher and do the Samurai Strike. The Megazord is destroyed and she falls out. They jump out to fight her. Royal Guards arrive. Troy goes to Mighty Morphin Red (replacing Sun Vulcan VulEagle), Jake goes to Blitz Mode Black (Changeman's Change Gryphon), Emma goes to Prism Mode Green (Flashman's Green Flash), Noah goes to Lighting Mode Blue (Maskman's Mask Blue) and Gia goes to Supersonic Mode Yellow (Fiveman's Five Yellow). They call their weapons: Prism Shooter, Blitz Blaster, Supersonic Flute and Lightning Rod and Power Sword.
Red fights Levira. The others fight the Royal Guards. They like the new powers. Jake does a Gryphon Magma Galaxy attack. They take down the guards. They go back to Super Mega Mode and use the Super Mega Cannon and destroy Levira. This was Mavro's plan to eat up time and the Armada arrives and blasts at the Rangers. They de-morph, millions of ships arrive, scaring people out of their houses and schools. Mr. Burley is called out of the school as well. Mavro's lackey laughs. Mavro speaks to the Rangers, saying they can't stand against them. Gosei tells them to stay strong. The Rangers morph and say they won't surrender.
They call the Megazords including Q-Rex and fight the ships. Gia takes out the SPD keys and they call the SPD patrol zord. They call the Wild Force Lion and Ninja Zord. Gia calls the Megaforce Zords (Mecha Zords) and Jake calls the Jungle Fury Animal Spirits. Emma calls the Turbo Falcon that helps. They call forth the Mystic Force Dragon and form the Mystic Force Legendary Megazord. Noah auto-pilots the Q-Rex Megazord to fly with In Space's Mega Winger wings (not named). They destroy many ships. Mystic Dragon joins the fight. Troy does a Fire Sword Strike attack (which I forget which Pre-Zyu series it is). People applaud. Mr. Burley is hiding under his desk.
Mavro says it is impressive. Orion check the comm links and hears about the second wave from Mavro. Orion freaks out. More ships arrive, scaring people again. Mavro laughs and says to attack. Ninja Zord and Mystic Dragon go down. The other zords fall in like. Turbo Falcon goes back to another dimension. The Ranger groan as the Megazord crash lands. The Megazord is blasted at and the Rangers de-morph and land violently on debris in the city. They are all knocked unconscious. Mavro appears in the sky telling people of Earth that they won and that the Power Rangers have been destroyed. They have one last night. Tomorrow at dawn, they will return.
Episode Review:
If Troy recognizes Mavro's voice, why did he even let Orion leave in the first place? They should have been ready for this a little better. It is also sad that Noah didn't get to check Orion's ship like he wanted. Orion of course left so they could just be five. I already expressed my displeasure of the use of the Pre-Zyu suits here: Now everyone is complaining. it makes no sense they only reshot Red Mighty Morphin and had the pre-zyu suits in new New Zeland footage. Yes, they had the Five Yellow, Flash Green, Mask Blue and Change Gryphon suits in New Zealand in new footage. Now it makes sense why they only had Flashman, Maskman and Changeman, not Jetman and Turboranger or others. Sorry to spoil but next week the Rangers won't be becoming a lot of the missing Ranger teams they haven't become yet. We do see the real deals but ugh, can't even complete that sentence.
