By Samurai I mean Samurai, not Super Samurai
Now for the action portion that was mostly Goseiger footage when it got to the suit action, but we had a good out of suit fight. Now somethings I didn't like was the CGI soccer ball, but mostly things were good. I did like seeing the team use what they got on their hands for battle with Emma using her camera to blind her foes with a flash. Now how does that work with when they go into Megaforce. Well it works well after thinking about it. With Noah a bowgun seems to be a good weapon since he has good intelligence and will make accurate shots. Troy is probably the best with this transition since Alata his counterpart was the most skilled of the original five and if I'm correct he did use a real style for his swordplay. The other three then keep their attitude the same with some good dubbing. There were some odd noises that didn't need to be in there, but things matched up nicely as like Samurai it does good the transition of stock footage and the American footage. All I wonder is how some of the cards work out since you can see their real names at times, but I guess I have to see what the American toy line looks like first before I go to that criticism.
Says Megaforce and you can clearly see Gosei in the background, ugh.
Overall for the first episode this does show a lot of good potential for this series. What I am not happy with is very little with just some hiccups cause of the stock footage. The acting does need to improve, but it's not terrible. There are very good callbacks though as I can't wait for more of those moments. I will give this episode a C+ it's slightly above average thanks to the nice amount of references and actually working around the Sentai footage and not just following it. There isn't a lot I hate about this first episode, but it needs to improve a little more to get into those "A" or "B" rankings.
