God, I feel so bad for Leo and Tooru. As of episode 40, those two have lost everything.

Still making my way through Leo and just watched the Astra episode. Crunchyroll's been loading reeeally slow for me, especially on the advertisements. It's really annoying. : /

Hulu makes their pauses even longer if you have adblock, so I assumed other streaming sites are the same. Plus, I think it's kind of unfair to do that for a site that depends on advertisements to give us free shows and for people who pay for premium memberships to get rid of the ads.

Anyways, I hope I can finish Leo soon to get right into 80.

What's the consensus on 80 anyway? Is it considered good or bad?

The villain in the Ginga S movie looks pretty cool, but to me he looks more like a villain from a sentai show. Ginga Victory looks very colorful, but very cool in my opinion.

Some event discussing Ultraman Ginga S: 10 Ultra Warriors. Unless you're fluent in Japanese I'd recommend skipping ahead to the trailer at the end of the video where we get our first look at the villain and Ginga Victory.

Aww yeah we got Zero! Ultraman Zero! Son of Seven in the corner there!

Seems our mystery villain had a name- Etaruga.

It's not talked about a lot because a lot people have not seen it even in japan. It and the anime Ultraman gets forgotten since its after Leo and before Tiga. For the few that have seen it, the consensus is that it is a nice light hearted show. Not heavy on story, but the FX are the best of the showa Ultras and the characters are enjoyable. It does not have a lot of interaction with the Ultras previous to the show except I think Seven makes a cameo appearance to give advice and that's it. Its worth watching for sure.

I've seen the first 20 episodes. The first 12 are really good, but the show gets weaker after the retool. I'm sure it picks up though.

Well Ginga has taken up a more sentai-y feel as opposed to previous series. I'm not really surprised.

I've watched the first six or seven episodes of 80 so far and I can attest that the special effects are the best of the Showa era. The monster designs are great for the most part. To me, all those kids are kind of annoying, but that's the type of show it was meant to be, light hearted. 80's design is my least liked of all the Ultras, but he's a good fighter, I'll give him that. Overall, I am definitely enjoying it. It's a show that I have been wanting to watch for many years now and I finally get the chance with Crunchyroll. I wish that I could download them!!!!!!

I must say, without Dan, Ultraman Leo has improved quite a bit.

I agree. I like Dan and all, but after the training angle was dropped, he was kinda pointless. The show REALLY needed the shot in the arm the Black Star arc gave it.

I'm halfway through Ultraman Mebius now. The show's really starting to improve...too bad I'm halfway through it now. The first half fluctuated between being average to being kinda good. Hopefully it'll stay good for the remainder for the show.

I actually miss the training angle a bit. I liked the idea of Leo getting stronger through improving himself rather then random power ups.

Also, Dan really never helped with the training. He would just say "Get stronger", walk away, and then return and attack Leo for not doing it correctly even though he gave no instructions. I also don't see how trying to run your student over with a car and hitting him in the face with boomerangs while shouting how pathetic he is is supposed to help.

If you can't already tell, I despise Dan :D

Oh, I dislike him a lot in this show as well, though the episode with Uringa was pretty damn harsh, even for him

Just finished watching episode #15 of Ginga S. I liked it. Everything, from story to acting, to special effects has improved. I really like the tactics they used to fight this super kaiju. I'm diggi'n it!

I also liked it, specially when they seem to have defeated him and he just starts firing wildly at them and I don't understand if One Zero is in the good or bad side?
