So i said it the other day that Gouraigan has plot holes and bad acting. I mean, the dude who is writing the script for it is 井上敏樹 , HE DID SOME CHOUJIN JETMAN. How the fuck can the script become so bad in gouraigan? and then of course , you get 雨宮 慶太 who created Garo. You would think with the experience in making Garo, getting actors who can act would be high up on the priority list? No offense to the actors but i think either the
- Director is so bad, it makes everyone looked bad
- Script is so bad, Director can’t do much, everyone looks bad
- Actors are so bad, even the script and director couldn’t save it
- Actors are actually good but the script pulled it down and directors are equally bad too.
So could be one of the four reasons or all of the above if it makes any sense at all.
Normally i don’t nitpick about the production crew at all. In fact most of my anime and sentai obsession never included the production crew because I don’t care about them. But Gouraigan made me look further into the series. But the irony is that, the production crew are not new to the scene. Don’t they realise by now they need better acting? I know Toku shows is not known for acting. But at least, get someone decent? I really don’t know if is the acting, directing or writing that screws shit up in gouraigan.
However, i really do hope it actually improve as the series go by. If not, please continue to pump out porn-like scenes.
Also, just having more excuses to post this gif 😛

I don’t care how fucking bad the plot and acting are if they keep adding things like this into the show. I will stay true and watch it all! They had to have a scene just for this ice cream licking… and damn she is hot too. I hope this show doesn’t get cancelled half way man. I really hope this show will actually become watchable as the series go by. I really do. But for now, the porn-ish scenes will do me fine.

Shougeki Gouraigan , a new toku for adults., as if that’s the show tagline 😛 but seriously, this toku is meant for older toku fans that are not under 15 years old. If you watched Garo before, you will recognize the art style or at least to me, it feels like it has been done with the same people/company. I’m sure if i dig around the web i can find more information. But fuck it, can’t be fucked at this point 😛 //
O fuck you, actually i did some searching! (have journalistic integrity!!) So yup Mr Keita Amemiya did Garo before.
If you are looking for detailed impressions I would suggest you go here instead : http://theglorioblog.com/2013/10/14/first-impressions-shougeki-gouraigan/
Anyway, as much as Garo was a love and hate affair for me. I thought gouraigan would be better. Turns out, the acting is fucking horrible and they appear to re-voice the actors for some reason. Don’t get me, being a toku fan for at least 16 years (or more), i am used to the fucking horrible acting in toku shows. I do not recommend non mainstream toku shows to non toku fans, hell even toku fans would find alternative toku shows like this one in particular difficult to watch.
i did mention this was an adult toku (despite having worse acting than kids toku show), because there’s boobs. Literally boobs in the first few seconds into the opening of the show and every single fucking time they fight. The buddha looking character? Yup, Boobs.
As much as i like to think this isn’t really a sentai look alike, it is. I am only 3 episodes in, hell, in the first episodes i already knew. So main character needs to find and get 4 other dudes to join his team and protect earth. Isn’t the fucking sentai or what? Don’t get me wrong, i am going to watch this show even though i do not sound too sold on this. Being a toku veteran, i would want to consume as much as i can regarding toku. Even a show with fuck stupid acting like this. I really hope the acting gets better. Seriously, if i was a director/ an actor and i have shows like this in my portfolio, i would be ashame. Maybe thats the reason for boobs appearing in this show.
