Super Toku Time: Being a Toku Fan is suffering


Ryoji may have turned into an Inves last time, but we all know that he’s not important. In other words, no one cares about his inevitable death. Thankfully, Micchy’s attempt to infiltrate Yggdrasill Corporation ended up revealing some new bits that manages to spice things up. While I predicted Yuuya’s fate back when Gaim premiered in October, Micchy’s reaction to the truth made the whole scene worthwhile.

Before we dive into the rest of my ramble, I would like to point out that Micchy sucks at stealth. The only reason that he managed to bypass Yggdrasill’s tight security was because of Lady Luck being on his side. Honestly, I doubt that his info’s going to reach Kouta and the gang soon, since he’ll most likely be joining forces with Takatora before Kouta learns about the Helheim Forest’s secrets.

Is it me, or did Kouta’s concern over Ryoji Hase’s situation feel unnecessary? I understand that Kouta wanted to save Hase, but I think that the situation would’ve worked better if it was Hideyasu. While Team Invitto's leader ditched Hase a few episodes back, I would’ve believed him more than Kouta. Then again, we wouldn’t have had the wonderful confrontation between Sid and Kouta, which acts as a great cliffhanger for the next episode.

Seeing how Kouta and Kaito are now Yggdrasill Corporation’s prisoners, it’s going to take a miracle for them to escape unharmed. Thanks to this situation, Gaim’s second arc is shaping up into a great addition to the show’s overall premise. If Micchy pulls a Solid Snake during episode 15, then Gaim has what it takes to win the Tokusatsu of the Year award. Either way, my respect for the series won’t be affected if we don't get another stealth scene.

About Salvador G Rodilesone of us since 10:40 PM on 07.28.2011

Salvador's an average bystander who took his first steps towards a life-changing goal. During his journey, he's devising a way to balance his time with anime, manga, video games, and tokusatsu into one manageable platter. While his plan sounds like an impossible task, Salvador hopes to turn his goal into a reality.

When he's in the mood for a challenge, Sal loves to overcome the spiciest meals in the world. By consuming the hottest meals on the planet, Sal hopes to obtain the powers to resist the hottest temperatures and drink lava as a refreshment. Hopefully, he won't burn up in the process.

From time to time, you can find him on Twitter as The Crimson Blade, a nickname that was handed down to him by his close friends.


Sal is friends with 2D Animator BlueBandanaJake, Stuntman Vaughndio Forbes (Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Stuntman for Captain Holt) and Freelance Lab Zero Games Clean-up Animator Dustin "Can of Toast" Cantos since he met them during his pretend college days (a.k.a. The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale).

Sal backed Kick Heart, Masaaki Yuasa's wrestling anime, on Kickstarter.

Sal hangs outs in the Sanctuary Crew Discord room, which Seizui, the creator of Reize and Star Chaser Story, moderates.
