First of all, the news of a Blue Beetle on-going to come from the DC Reboot has ... caused  me to me very conflicted. I make no secret of the fact that I love those comics, but the problem is I don't necessarily think the reboot is going to be a good idea in any sense of the word and I was all prepared to boycott DC ... And then they annouce that we're going back to El Paso. *sigh* I am SO  conflicted. It doesn't help that a lot of the new designs and story summaries make it seem like we're right back in the 90s 'EXTREME era, and I cannot be arsed with that. Here's hoping that Blue Beetle, at least, will remain the sweet kid we know him as.

Have started Sinkenger and have gotten to episode 18 ... and it's only really with the introduction of Genta that this show is having an impression on me. Now, to make it clear - Gokaiger I loved from the first episode. Magiranger had me enchated by episode 4, but for this? ... Out of the 18 episodes I've watched, only 4 of them actually stick in mind. And ... I don't know why I'm having this issue. I quite like the characters, and the premise is interesting enough, I just seem to find it bloody boring. But, like I said, I've gotten to Genta and the show finally seems to be sinking in, so we'll see how we go from here

Gokaiger's 199 Heroes Battle movie came out yesterday and I am resigned to the fact that it'll be December before I see it. I really wish there was a way for Tokusatsu to be exported in a slightly more efficient way - though I adore and love Power Rangers to pieces I would love to be able to pick up some of these movies on dvd. Then again, I live in the UK and getting any type of non-UK produced media can be hard enough - and then the industries wonder why people are illegally downloading more. Actually, I'm referring more to this awesome looking action figure when I speak of this but the point stands for dvds and the like as well! 

I've recently been listening to the soundtrack for Mozart, l'opera rock on youtube and I've fallen in love slighty, even though I can't understand a word. It's grand, it's theatrical, it's all in French ... it's just one of the many things I've looked at due to being bored and then fallen in love with as its stuck with me past the boredom. It happens a lot. I'm in luck with this one though, the cd/dvd is available via amazon. No idea if it has English subtitles, but I'll learn! 

And lastly ... I got the results for the 2nd year of university in. I passed everything - and quite brilliantly for some modules. Bring on the 3rd year. (But please let my 21st before hand result in money so I can afford my third year)

I didn't say I found it boring, I said it wasn't leaving much of an impression on me and I didn't know why. I'm not necessarily a first - people I've spoken to have expressed similar experiences.

Yes, I have been watching Samuari off and on, but I consider Power Rangers and Sentai as two different medias entirely.

Yeah i know their different but Saban has copied the storyline , and from 1-12 and then 17- now they have copied every episode nearlly so , if u seen that then jump onto Shinkenger you are going to see the same storyline and movements .. so maybe thats why

It's possible, but I tend to get the feeling its more ... just that people have hyped it up so much, that now it's just not meeting their high praise ofit. I'll continue at my own pace, and see how much further I get

Okay, sorry, just re-read, I did say boring. Well ... that's probably the only way to explain my "...get to the robot fight already" attitude during the episodes
