In case anyone doesn't know that I had been out of town, I was back from my vacation the day before. It was an interesting experience, to say the least. Anyway, there are lots of things I want to do and too little hours in a day. I'm not too happy either to come home to find that the internet situation is getting progressively worse. But I'm getting sick of hearing myself complain, so I guess this will be the last time I'll mention this subject. If I disappear, it most likely means I have no more internet access.
Changing track a bit, I started watching Ultraman Cosmos
and couldn't at first understand why the series was so popular that it has 65 episodes. Musashi is such a whiny brat (and his actor doesn't help the matter any). Ayano gets no respect from her teammates, but then she is such a kid so I'm not so surprised. Fubuki is obviously the token cool sharpshooter of the team, but he gets points deducted for picking on Musashi almost all the time, even though Musashi kind of asks for it. Doigaki seems a little...slow? (He's a scientist, so why I keep thinking he seems less bright than he actually is?) The captain is weird (his actor was a red in a sentai show, though I'm not sure which one). The vice captain is plain scary. (Well, it's a female vice captain, so perhaps that's not really surprising either. Nagi from Nexus
was kind of scary too, though in a different way.)
But then I think I get lost in the magic of this show. It's such a feel good, uplifting series. So what if the team EYES members are not perfect. They are humans, they make mistakes, they seem real (or as real as fictional characters can). So what if their goals are a bit idealistic? Saving monsters and making the world a better place to live for both humans and monsters are worthy, admirable things to do.
I've seen up to episode 8, so my opinions may change later. For now, I'm enjoying the show.
And now, I'm going to write a bit more on Ultraman Tiga
. I think I probably won't stop talking about Tiga
at any time soon, what with the new movie coming out this fall and all.
While it mostly deals with the past history that Tiga TV series only mentioned in passing a few times, the Final Odyssey movie is obviously not a standalone movie. Viewers get lost if they are not familiar with the series.
I'm a little surprised that I love this movie, even though I'm more interested in the human aspects of the show. Anyway, Kamilla confuses me. She is talking as if Daigo was alive 30 million years ago. I got the impression that the Tiga DNA was passed on to Daigo from his ancester, but that doesn't necessarily means that person was Daigo himself 30 million years ago. So, either way, I think that dark Tiga was long gone from earth (well, he got changed into light first, to escape Kamilla's clutch, I'd imagine XD), leaving the legacy to Daigo, so to speak (and to the kid from 5000(?) years ago in the Tiga Gaiden). Personally, I think Kamilla and her cohorts should just go chase the (former) dark Tiga and leave Daigo alone. Seriously. He doesn't even understand what the heck she is saying. Personally, I would back out for lesser things than that. But Kamilla is cute, and I would have liked her more if she doesn't try to steal Daigo away from Rena.
Anyway, I don't hold out much hope of finding the answer, but this detail bugs me every time I watch this movie, so I figure I'll write it down at least.
