Gachi Rangers #01 — Projectile Foaming Vagina Dentata

January 8th, 2011




I really didn’t expect to say this, but this was a hilarious episode of Mitsudomoe, possibly up there with its first couple. Sure, the only thing it had in common with the first 13 episodes was the name "Gachi Rangers," but it was (mostly) a great sentai parody. It did take a few minutes to find its legs since the jokes surrounding the villains were a lot weaker than when it started making fun of the Gachi Rangers themselves, but after focus switched, it had all the creativity and variety that the original run lacked. In fact, I think that the biggest mistake this episode made was not playing the faux episode off as what the Gachi Rangers really were.

Also, it had a toothy crab vagina shooting foam. Maybe in another series, I’d be reaching to make the sexual joke, but I don’t think so for this one.

I will say that the production and music don’t seem quite as good as I recall from last season, and obviously, your mileage may vary on the humor since this was pretty much all parody, something that Mitsudomoe had long since abandoned. It does give me hope for the rest of this run though. Wonder of wonders, perhaps Bridge did learn from their mistakes and can breathe some life back into this show yet. Or maybe they’re just getting my hopes up to cruelly dash them against the concrete. I give both even odds.



Christmas parties and reindeer rides.

    WTF is this shit?

  • Chen says:

    What did I just watch?

  • Kefit says:

    Yes, this was a great sentai parody. Unfortunately, the worst parts of the episode were when the Mitsudomoe triplets were on screen. Both times that happened I suddenly felt like I was watching the latter parts of s1 again. And they managed to establish this stale feeling despite only having 1-2 minutes of screentime.

    This does not bode well for the rest of the season.

  • bk47 says:

    as someone who has seen a lot of riders and rangers I had fun with it makeing note of things like Traveling At The Speed Of Plot and some thing here and there but I think it needed more parody and maybe more murder (everyone is restored in the end anyway)
