KyouryuuBlack and Guns

Episode 4 focuses on KyouryuuBlack, the Bullet Brave!

The gun wielding Kyouryuuger raises a question for me -- what do you think about guns (real guns) in Tokusatsu series? Not nessessarily mature movie -- but things like (duh) Kamen Rider and Super Sentai. I recently saw Kamen Rider Fourze Movie - and was quite surprised at the amount of real world guns. No, no one got shot in a blood mess -- but it was still something I don't recall seeing in regular episodes. Maybe the rules are different with the movies?? Guns in popular media is a hot-topic for Americans right now; how do American fans feel about guns (even laser guns) portrayed in Super Sentai? Power Rangers Mega Force uses lasers - though that footage was completed years prior. I don't really have a problem with it -- but it just occurred to, some of the old criticism leveled against shows like this, and possibly glamorizing gun-play. (Though usually such arguments where usually focused on the violence of martial arts.) Probably an unfair topic to put to another countries' programming - but, like with Mega Force, Kyouryuuger will someday probably be the next Power Ranger Dinosaur; so it does effect us as well.

KyouryuuGreen Spotlight

This week's episode of Kyouryuuger focused on KyouryuuGreen.

I added the following characters to the site:
- Genryu Rippukan
Raging Knight Dogold
Funfilled Spy Luckyuro

I also changed the spelling of Kyouryuuger to reflect the way TV-Nihon spells the names. I tried to change things as best I could.

Anyway, here are the screenshots for this week
