Episode Thoughts

Ngl, this episode was an absolute clusterfrak. Lol A fun, exciting clusterfrak and a visual treat, yes. But a clusterfrak nonetheless.

I guess the main takeaway from the episode is to highlight how far the Ohgers have come in their journeys to truly become worthy kings. Their peoples believe in them and would literally die for them. (More on that later!) And their predecessors are temporarily resurrected to see that they are indeed worthy successors. Heck, we even get former enemies back alive to offer their own bit of emotional support for the Ohgers.

It was all about Chikyuuians (Bugnarak included) resolved to fight for their kings who have all along fought for them in order to save the world. Even if they have to go against the god of the universe to do it.

The Chikyuuians and Kaijims charging into battle was a spectacular scene. I think one of the best CGI executions of the entire season. But then in seeing the absolute mayhem that ensued, I couldn’t help but think, “OMG, the number of civilian casualties!” lol These people really were running to their deaths. Most of the people are just civilians who have zero experience in any kind of battle. Let alone a war against the god of the universe.

So with that heavy thought at the forefront, the quick cuts to all the little scenes in various pockets of the battlefield felt so awkward.

I mean, WTF was going on here?
Ohsama Sentai King-Ohger Episode 49 Recap
I have never had my jaw drop so close to the floor ever while watching Sentai or Kamen Rider as it did during this moment. Like what. The. Frak. lololol

But really. While a part of me loved the visual chaos and excitement of the battles, the successive cameos of basically every guest and returning character from the season felt somewhat contrived. Especially when none of the scenes really offered much more than what could be similarly accomplished with, say ghosts floating around watching the scene. Or a DGP-style live TV broadcast in Hakabaka.

First of all, this is a different experience for me. The fact that I actually watched a Sentai or Kamen Rider movie before its events are referenced in-series! If I hadn’t watched Adventure Heaven, I’d definitely be quite annoyed at essentially the whole Hakabaka situation and Devonica resurrecting the dead for a few minutes for really no substantial reason. And then Reiniol Husty making a couple seconds appearance too. Thank goodness I actually know who they are before they popped up in this episode lol

Once Devonica appeared, I thought: “Oh that’s a relief. So the dead civilians can be saved and brought back to life.” Because I really did worry that everyone would be wiped out by the end. It’s kind of unavoidable considering the battle and Dagded’s repeated atomic blast waves across the land.

But then, she quickly closed up shop. So now, I’m back to thinking most of Chikyuu’s population is dead. And that would be fine, because we’ve certainly seen apocalyptic endings in other Sentai and Kamen Rider seasons. And it fits with the idea of brave soldiers going to battle to defend their country and fellow man. But the juxtaposition just really threw me off. I mean, the Ohgers are laughing it up at lunch while people are dying all around them. It’s all so strange lol

Just give me the King-Ohger version of this:

…and it’ll be awesome. Really! Lol

Anyway, as excited and impressed as I was last week, it’s almost the opposite this week. Still loved the epic visuals. But I’m kinda sad I don’t love this episode just as much. Oh well. If ever I do re-watch this season in the future, I can skip this episode and just go from 48 to 50 and I doubt it’d make much difference. lol

  1. It was a good episode. I thought very emotional seeing all the people who were part of the kings’ journey to this moment. But I can see how they could’ve done things differently. I think being sandwiched between last week and the finale might be part of it. And somehow watching the episode, I was surprised how fast it went. Because I looked and it was already halfway done and I did feel like not much happened. Even though it was nice to see all the returning characters.

  2. No, because I’ve been looking for answers and also wondering if I really did just watch a thousand year old Jerami getting breast fed by his dead mother. 🤢

  3. Oh! I remember that Mystic force scene! I remember it was laughed at when it first aired. But jn hindsight, it was quite good and fitting for the season. Especially with the idea of different people coming together for good. It would definitely work here on KingOhger. Maybe in the final episode
