The Cute Characters Of Akazukin Cha Cha
Well here's the cute characters of Akazukin Cha Cha. Cha Cha is a cute character, there's also Orin and Riiya (in his wolf form).
I always thought it's funny how Cha Cha and Orin both look alike even if well... the show doesn't give a single hint they're related. How Orin is a blonde ninja was never explained whether or not her mother is a white woman or she just dyed her hair. Considering that Cha Cha and Orin belong to the same class, I think Orin is just too short for her age (well the cast graduated in the middle of the show) or two, she's a gifted child that has managed to skip several levels in Urara. As for Cha Cha as a cute character, she doesn't look like a a person who's about to enter Middle School.
I always thought Orin was a badass character in Akazukin Cha Cha. She may be small but watch out... she's also a very capable fighter. What I find weird about her characterization is that while she hangs out mostly with Marin and Yakko, she's too pure. I thought she should have just been hanging out with Cha Cha all the more.
I can't forget Riiya's wolf form which is frequently msitaken as a dog. It's funny how Marin never figured out Riiya can disguise himself. At one point, Shiene sold Riiya in his wolf form to get money to buy Cha Cha a gift.
After ranting on Troy's character execution, I could talk about Gia's execution as well. Considering she's the most popular girl in school or as Noah says, "You don't stand a chance Jake, she's the hottest girl in school.", there could somewhere Saban could borrow an idea from Toei. Come on, Saban's staff had the rights to access Toei's library of sorts. I mean, if Toei has copied some of their ideas (ex. the whole idea of a Decade/Shinkenger crossover) so why not copy from Toei's library if you're not having ideas as of late?
The person I could think of who could have been used on Gia is Miu Kazashiro. In what way? Well both characters are the head beauties in school, they also have their head bitch in charge attitudes like...
Well you see what I mean? Gia herself had the HBIC personality so I thought that making her a tomboy wasn't exactly all that feasible. I may talk about how Emma could have been executed another day. But…
As a child, I used to like Tommy a lot. Maybe it was because of how "cool" I thought he was or was it because of the Tommy/Kimberly ship that Dougie Boy sank for no good reason? That letter is best known as Doug Sloan forged Kimberly's signature into it! Okay, be ready for a lot of my personal biases because I'm mostly neutral with Power Rangers. But there are good Power Rangers seasons, there are some good actors who can really do what they do like Mike Chaturantabut is an accomplished martial artist or that Amy Jo Johnson plays a good Kimberly. But let's focus on Tommy who's nothing more than an overrated, self-glorified character like Hercule in Dragon Ball Z. Plus, Jason David Frank isn't really pleasing anymore either.
So what's my issues with Tommy? I would talk more about the post-Zeo era. Power Rangers managed to create some decent seasons. During Wild Force's "Forever Red", it bothers me why Tommy and not Jason was the leader. …
For people who spent time watching the Uncanny X-Men cartoon series in the 90s, it might be a good memory but remember, the cartoons is basically sanitized from the brutal reality of Marvel Comics and there are many changes. For example, Juggernaut is NOT a mutant but a person whose powers are powered by the Cytorrak Crystal, Magneto's helmet guards him from Professor Xavier's telepathy in contrast to the cartoons and another one I might explain is Mr. Sinister.
Remember when Mr. Sinister was hit by a super strong optic blast? Now that was one super strong one that actually could rip Sinister but not kill him. Mr. Sinister was able to survive even after he was ripped apart, who knows, he may already have had an X-Gene even before Apocalypse placed him in the Celestials' machine! I just thought of one thing that Cyclops' optic blasts per se are not always that spectacular even if he's one great game character to play as.
It's no secret that Tokusatsu societies can be full of rumor mills. I'll try to speak in a less biased way since people know I usually don't watch Power Rangers except if I have some dumb reasoning behind it (ex. hot girls) but I get a lot more of that from Super Sentai. Now it's time to look at the rumor mill that I've encountered but this isn't even a full list. These aren't even provable and are just circulated for the sake of being a Power Rangers snob.
Rumor mill: Mighty Morphin' is more popular than Zyuranger
I acknowledge the fact that Mighty Morphin' did get dubbed in Japan though I still can't get over why in the world is Reiko Chiba dubbing Kimberly?! I'd actually prefer it if Kimberly were dubbed by Natsuki Takahashi. So what's wrong with this one? There's no real evidence to back that up. Both shows have their pros and cons. I still like Kimberly better than Mei while preferring Zyuranger over Mighty Morphin'.
There might be an ongoing perhaps never-ending debate on who's really more evil between Heihachi or his son Kazuya. To understand both villains, one might as well take a look at the past these facts between our two major antagonists Kazuya and Hehiachi, both who I actually enjoy using against many of my peers in the past. Tekken doesn't tell the whole story immediately and details keep unrolling to explain the whole Mishima Blood Curse.
So let's take a look at the history of the two shall we? Much of this information is non-linear meaning some of the newer information were revealed in later games. We knew of Kazuya's fall off the cliff from the first Tekken game, we knew that Devil existed within Kazuya in Tekken 2, we see there's something F*CKED UP about the Mishima Bloodline whether they possess the abnormality or not... which continues to the tragic saga of the Mishima Bloodline. Now let's see who is the most evil between the two? Before the first Tekken, w…
Tekken presents a rather ambiguous background between Kazuya Mishima and Jun Kazama which gives birth to their only son, Jin Kazama who looks a lot like Kazuya Mishima. So what we know based on canon is that they met in Tekken 2 and in Tekken 3 which happens 15 years later after the second game. Jin steps in revealing himself as Kazuya's son therefore Heihachi Mishima's grandson.
The only possible thing I can imagine is rape rather than consent because I doubt it Jun will ever fall for Kazuya in a million years. Namco hasn't really released an official word on that but with its T rating, a rape plot can always be added without making it obvious or detailed. I wouldn't think that Jun Kazama a WWWC officer would even consent to Kazuya so I thought, maybe in the middle of the second tournament or whatever, Kazuya may have banged her against her will (and I don't think her ending is canon either). She could love Jin, I mean some women who became single mothers becaus…
Well here's probably what was quite a "long awaited" shirtless scene for Troy Burrows in Megaforce. Then again some Super Sentai in the past before Power Rangers had shirtless males like Ryou in Dairanger, Gaku in Fiveman (but he's not a muscular guy) or Takeru in Maskman which was however not as muscular as most Power Rangers males.
Yes, we're having another short pink ranger no questions asked. It's too early to actually comment on it since Ninja Steel hasn't even started. I'm already having my series of early biases for and against it. It's just like when Dino Charge came out, I already had biases against it because I really freaking didn't like Kyoryuger. I also freaking didn't like Ninja Steel. Power Rangers' splitting into two seasons is a horrible idea. I hope they fix that mistake.
I'd like to talk about one thing: it's about trying to redo Kimberly. Power Rangers Megaforce tried to redo her but failed due to Jonathan Tzachor. I always felt that Kimberly's concept can be redone right or wrong depending on who's in charge. Yasuko Kobayashi was able to do her own version of Kimberly with Mako. Tzachor wasted an entire cast that could have done something good. Looking at the Megaforce cast outside their show, they're far more different than they were in-sho…
Power Rangers Samurai was so bad a season... no questions asked. The presence of Skull's son Spike (and possibly Bulk's nephew) had triggered me my wild imagination. It was also the source of my habit of mentioning Spike every time I wrote something about Rin Takanashi. What's really my own assumptions?
Let us consider what if Mako fought out-of-suit against a group of Nanashi. Spike was in vacation in Japan and he was ambushed by them. It just had me thinking that he happened to be saved by Mako... who is most likely a decade older than he is. Mako's probably 24 when he's 14... which makes an awkward match between them unless Spike was the one older. On the other hand, you might consider some of the dumbest stuff to happen between Spike and Mako.
The Megaman X series had the mysterious Maverick Virus. Just where is it from? While Megaman X was launched for the SNES after Megaman 6 and Megaman X2 was launched prior to Megaman 7 and Megaman 8, I believe Megaman 7 and 8 were made to bridge the gaps. Bass would probably be a prototype to Zero (Zero was later revealed to be Dr. Wily's greatest robot).
Megaman 8 while it didn't finish the Megaman series (though it looked like Dr. Wily died from that incident), there was the existence of this Evil Energy. Duo mentioned in Megaman 8 (Duo does look like he would later be used as a basis for some Maverick Hunters and even Sigma himself) that the Evil Energy absorbs evil within a person's mind and then it multiplies to infect others. While it was an alien source, later it fell down on Earth allowing Dr. Wily to use it for what could be his biggest project that would soon cause chaos in the next century. Doesn't that sound like the Maverick Virus in the Megaman X series?
