Sorry for being off the last couple weeks; luckily you'll be getting two straight days of ToQ from me.
ToQger 7: Amazingly there hasn't been a pink ninja Ranger up to now...so heck, maybe Kagura's on to something.
Emotions can be a stubborn thing, particularly when you have two who have opposing feelings on the same team. Hikari is the dark one who is hard to get along with, while Kagura is the cute one that tries to get along with anyone. Unfortunately when the flightiness of one leads to chaos with Kagura using Hikari's kendama a little too hard, it leads to major problems for both: Hikari can't apologize and Kagura is too depressed to say anything to Hikari thinking its going to lead to problems. Unfortunately with emotions being a problem, it just leads to a tough episode on that respect, with it mostly being about ToQ 4 and 5 having their difficulties with neither wanting to talk to the other and thus being forced to once the other three are out of the way. This is courtesy, of course, by Stamp Shadow, whose power drains the energy away from those stamped by its mark (even if a helmet is supposed to be protecting them!) The confrontation did feel forced considering it was about those two who can't quite talk to each other being forced due by way of circumstances but the good news is once they do apologize we get some really great imagination attacks in the battle, with the Tunnel Axe combining with Kagura into a great little kendama attack and Kagura actually turning Car Carrier Ressha into ninja stars to sort of allow for her imagination power to enhance the power and potential of even ToQ-Oh.
The scenes with the other three being depressed was way funnier, even if it leads to Wagon deciding to get a raise with it (and do what; she's a robot so money or even credit through the pass isn't going to mean much to her!) Meanwhile we have Noire and Nero trying to position each other as the better person to be by the the side of the emperor when he finally arrives with the potential knowledge that one (or maybe both) will be destroyed when he sees the failure they've been pulling as of late. Gritta of course rather just even give what Noire collected for her to Scwartz, but he has other things on his mind considering the loss he had and the fact that he doesn't even want Gritta/Noire's shadow power to heal from it. He really does try to stand out in doing things on his own beyond the power of the other members of the court.
BTW: Now I know there's something up with Right's shirts. The Rider crossover had a JAKQ shirt and this episode had a "FRANC" one (as in...Battle France). So I guess next up is a Denziman shirt...or maybe he can give some sort of anpan advertisement. (and I may need to go back to see if there is some sort of Gorenger shirt in the first few episodes...too bad I deleted the early episodes on my HD)
