Go-Kaiger Ep.42 RAW: Who is Don Dogoier?

Sorry to keep everybody waiting. For regular visitors of the blog, you’ll notice that I’ve been missing for the past week or so. Sorry, this last week was my last week of classes, and I had several BIG projects due around the same time. And after those were done, I just needed some time off. You understand, right?

Anyway, here’s a little something to make up for my weeklong absence, Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.42. In this episode, we get to see how Hakase/Don-San/Go-KaiGreen came to be a part of the crew, as well as getting a look into his possibly forgotten past, all this while Damaras plots with Basco to capture the pirates! Check it out below:

Oh no! Marvelous is captured?! Don left to fight by himself?! And what happened to the others?!! Will Don’s lost heroic side come back to save the day? Comeback next week to find out!

Episode 41: What I Don’t Want to Lose – 12/4

Episode 42: The Strongest Man in the Universe – 12/11
To defeat the Gokaiger, Damaras finally makes comes to Earth, personally.

At the same time, Aihm stumbles upon a magazine article that talks about the “Hero, Don Doggoier”, and how he had gone missing. “Huh?! Hakase is a Legendary Hero?!” Could Hakase’s memory really have been lost? The Gokaiger try and see if eating delicious food will cause Hakase to remember something.

Then Damaras appears, with Basco as his right hand man, calling out Marvelous and the others. The Gokaiger’s Greatest Pinch is here!

Episode 43: To the Legendary Hero – 12/18
With little effort, Damaras effectively attacks the Gokaiger and beats all but Hakase, who is now aboard the GokaiGalleon alone.

Marvelous is taken captive, sentenced to a public execution in front of the people of Earth, as an example. “Alone…it’s impossible” is what Hakase mutters, about to give up…

Left alone to fight, what is Luka to do? Can Gai and the others be returned to normal? “Protect Everyone’s Christmas!” Don’t miss it!

Go-Kaiger Scans and Episode Summaries: Rise of the Dragon Slayer?

Yay! More new scans! This time, we have scans from upcoming episodes of Go-Kaiger, as well as some new episode summaries, and it looks like we’re going into two characters’ backstories. Meet the Princess and the Dragon Slayer!

Next week’s episode of Go-Kaiger, Ep.41, “Something I Don’t Want to Lose”,  Emperor Ackdos Gil enters the battlefield, setting after the Go-Kaigers for the death of his son. And along with him are two of his guards (seen above), Imperial Guards Dyrando ans Zatslig. After imprisoning Damaras for not protecting the Prince in battle, Zatslig, with a reputation for destroying whole worlds, goes on the attack. And Ahim is the one that goes after him, because Zatslig is the one who destroyed her home world of Famille and killed her parents, the King and Queen shown in the first scan, and saying that she has a grudge against him would be an understatement. We’ll also learn how she met Marvelous and why she became a Pirate.

And this scan come from the episode after, Ep.42, “The Strongest Man in Space”. In it, Ahim uncovers reports that would suggest that Don Dogoier/Hakase may have been a legendary warrior, known for slaying many dragons on many worlds. But Don has no memories of doing any of it. So, is he a great Dragon Slayer, or was he just an intergalatic cosplayer?

And this final scan reveals that the RangerKey toy line will continue into next year (2012), and that there will be a new toy to use with them. No word yet on which teams or senshi the new RangerKeys will be based on.

And that should be it for Go-Kaiger series stuff. Hopefully, we’ll get a glimpse of that new toy sometime soon.

Question for you: Any ideas on what the new RangerKey toy will be?

Go-Kaiger Mega-Post: Catching up on some slippery Pirates!

For those of you that happen to read other blogs, you know that I have gotten very far behind on catching up with the latest news about everything and anything. Well, to make up for that, I’m going to post EVERYTHING I’ve found Go-Kaiger-related in one super-sized Mega-Post! Expect lengthy descriptions and oodles of pics from this point on.

Starting with the oldest stories first, we have an interview with Wakamatsu Toshihide, who plays Yuki Gai/Black Condor, originally in Jetman but most recently in the newest episode of Go-Kaiger, talking about how writer Inoue Toshiki talked him into taking up his old role for this new series (note: this was translated from a Japanese magazine interview, I had nothing to do with the translating, so don’t complain to me about inproper English) :

I got phone call from Toshiki Inoue in the very early morning… well as is usual for him (laugh). He said “I’ll write script so appear on Gokaiger as Gai Yuki”. I’ve heard about “Gokaiger” so I knew what he told about, but I couldn’t believe what he said, because Gai already passed away.

The story of Gai’s death in Jetman was made mainly by Inoue and me at a meeting where we drank much(laugh). So I was against Gai’s being alive and I told so. Then he said “I understand you. Believe in me. If you don’t appear, I will never write.” So I replied to him with saying “I’ll leave everything to you.”

After reading the script, I called Inoue and heard him saying “It’s nice story for you isn’t it?” (laugh) I myself thought I’m too outstanding well in the story so I felt a kind of guilty for being a leading character in Gokaiger. At the same time I felt Inoue’s having a special place in his heart for Gai.

At the point I received the offer I called Hirofumi Ishigaki, Action Director in Gokaiger. He acted Yellow Owl in Jetman. I asked him if it’s possible to make Mr. Ohfuji act Brack Condor.

When I was in fitting session, I got welcome news. Mr. Nakazawa, the director said Ohfuji accepted the offer of Black Condor. Other staffs also thought that Black Condor must be acted by Ohfuji. That’s my great pleasure.

To answer your first question, Mr. Ohfuji is the original suit actor for Black Condor, so that makes the performance of Black Condor in battle that much more authentic. Which makes it that much cooler overall.

Next up, we have an official announcement for a new Go-Kaiger game from Namco Bandai, this time for the Nintendo DS, entitled Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: Atsumete Henshin! 35 Sentai!

The game’s genre is “Narikiri Treasure Hunting”, and you do just that. Basically, you go around the world finding, collecting, and using RangerKeys in battle. Each level has it’s own RangerKey, and along the way you have to fight Zangyack and collect the RangerKey on the map as soon as possible. The game also uses the stylus, making battles that much more simpler. The game will be released November 17th for 5040 yen.

I know it’s only been two console games so far, but that’s actually quite a lot in such a short span of time, amd whe you include other non-console games, then that number really jumps up.

Speaking of which, Namco Bandai has also announced a new app game for Go-Kaiger, called Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger ~ Let’s GokaiGalleon ~!

In this new game, you can play as Go-KaiGalleon, fighting against Zangyack spaceships. You even have the ability to play as Go-KaiOh!

Here’s the official iTunes description:

Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger comes to iPhone! Blast away meteoroids and enemy spacecraft that threaten the Gokai Galleon on its voyage towards Earth! Control the action with simple taps and flicks as you feverishly try to earn your best score!

Controls: Lock on to enemies on the screen by tapping them. You can lock on to multiple enemies at the same time. Next, flick the screen to attack all the enemies you are locked on to simultaneously! Tilt the device left and right to dodge enemy attacks.

Hints: Multiply your score locking on to multiple enemies and defeating them all at once. Pirate marks pile up on the lower left side of the screen, according to the number of enemies defeated at once. Once you have eight marks, you can transform into Gokaioh. You are invincible while transformed, giving you the opportunity to boost your score even more!

Sounds simple and easy to play, and it’s only 170 yen. It’s available for iPhone 3GS & 4, and iPod Touch 3 and up. You’ll need a Japanese iTunes account to purchase it, but luckily for you, Jefusion happens to have a post on how to set up one.

Next we have some interesting info on a “discarded” background story for Don Dogoier/Hakase/Go-KaiGreen. It comes from an interview with Go-Kaiger lead wirter Arakawa Naruhisa by Hyper Hobby magazine. Here’s one background story they considered for the good doctor:

(Arakawa) “Don would be a scared boy who saw his scientist father die in a laboratory after the Zangyack attacked and started a fire, leaving him traumatized.” In addition, Arakawa said that he wouldn’t be “a special person like Ahim”, that he doesn’t come from some high rank in society, that he is just an average person (comparitively speaking).

Well, I’m not sure if some version of this story is used, but it would explain a lot about him. What do you think about it?

Anyway, let’s move on to some showroom toy pics featuring Go-KaiMachine Machalcon and the Go-KaiGalleon Buster:

This is the next Go-KaiMachine, Engine Machalcon. He is the Go-Onger‘s Grand power, and as you can see below, he can be used to combine Go-KaiOh and Go-JyuJin into a single combined mecha!

And here we (finally) have Go-Kaiger‘s cannon weapon, the Go-KaiGalloen Buster. As you can see, it works like other cannon weapons, where everybody puts their RangerKeys in and KABOOM! Freshly toasted Zangyack.

Wait, what’s that at the top?

Hmm, it’s talking about glowing 7 different LED light colors, which every weapon toy does, but it’s also showing seven RangerKeys, including a blacked-out one over the purple circle. Could this possibly be a new Go-Kaiger? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

And finally, we have the screen shots from the newest episode of Go-Kaiger! Check out Black Condor’s return:

New Super Hero Time!

And next week:

There. now we’re all completely caught up on all things Go-Kaiger. If anything else comes up, I;m putting it in a new post. 😛
