Episode Thoughts

A very fun episode. From what little I’ve seen of Go-Onger, I think this episode did a great job at kind of putting a mini spotlight on Taiya and BunBun’s relationship and partnership. Very subtle, but very meaningful as well. All to continue building upon our Boonbooms and their stories. It’s not hard to see Sosuke and Speedor’s relationship and how it can compare to Taiya and BunBun.

On the flipside, it was a nice little crossover and visit with Sosuke and the Engines. And of course the two seasons have the vehicle theme in common. So it works out in many ways.

Having senpais visit is also a fun way to encourage the rookies and be an extra torch passing in addition to the little handshakes of course.

Some nice tidbits with the dynamic between the General3 and Cannonborg too. And some great choreography throughout the episode, especially the first henshined battle.

Overall, a straightforward, but fun and very enjoyable episode with a visit from some old friends.
