So a zoologist gets sucked into some parallel world populated by animal people via an artifact called the link cube. And go figure, the houses, the weapons, even the landscape itself, EVERYTHING in "Zyuland" is a cube, so it's part of a theme... all right, then. Weird, but I can deal with it. Yamato gets there just as it comes under attack by EVIL TRIANGLES! WOOOOOOO-

All right, seriously. The aliens attacking "Zyuland" are a band of intergalactic poachers participating in a blood sport appropriately called "The Blood Game." In short, they go to a world and hunt EVERYTHING on that planet.... probably even destroying what's left of the planet afterwards, while they're at it. I'd imagine how long a blood game lasts depends on how much of a fight their target world puts up. Some blood games may last months or even years, and some probably end overnight.

If they can finish 100 consecutive blood games successfully, they'll have proved themselves to be the greatest hunters the universe has ever seen. So far, they've extincted a total of 98 worlds. Zyuland is their chosen no.99.

Earth is their next stop.

...oooooohhhhhh damn.

So yeah... you can imagine how incredibly determined these aliens that have probably been at this for centuries must be to finish their 100-game winning streak with Earth, and if they have their way with Zyuland, they're not gonna stop. So a team of four animal people and their human pe- I mean, leader is all that stands in their way. It's up to Yamato and his new friends to save both worlds!


Okay, real talk. This is a BADASS premise for a series that exists to justify selling toys that turn into cubes. I can only hope that they don't butcher it too much whenever the almost inevitable Power Rangers adaptation comes around. Recent seasons of Super Sentai have been kinda lacking in various ways, but this premise has some grit to it.

Okay, so other things I like about this. I like Yamato. I am getting so sick of overly pretty, doll-like men being the protagonists of these series. It got REALLY bad in ToQger. I don't mind that being the case SOMETIMES, but it's becoming an overrused trend, and I kind of get it if it's primarily to please Japanese women who love their men to be really effeminate, but it just gets repetitive after a while. They don't go too far with Yamato, though. Yamato's actor looks fairly boyish and mature, and his acting seems pretty good. It's just refreshing to see a guy really get into BEING a ranger and sound like he's having a blast kicking ass without ever coming off like it's just a game to him or like he isn't taking this invasion of another world seriously.

I really like the costumes of the other Zyuohgers. Their animal forms have a lot of character, and their human forms are.... okay. Sera's human form (she's the shark lady) is my favorite. I also think her animal form, and Tusk's elephant form, are my favorites of those. As for their ranger uniforms, yeah, they're really simple, and the animal faces printed on their chests command your attention, but they've grown on me.

The Zords (YES, weebs, I am going to call them that!) are just blocks that turn into animals, but I still like the way most of them look, and I REALLY like Zyuohking. Not necessarily in terms of functionality or combination, but I love the design. The arrangement of colors an' whatnot. He's like a walking totem pole. Again, it's grown on me. I was weirded out by most of this stuff at first, but I like it now that it's sunk in. I guess the focus on props and practical effects over CG has made me warm up to the things.

Also, the voice that announces the arrival of the Zords is HILARIOUS!!! He sounds like some super-buff, shirtless lumberjack dude standing on a mountaintop and calling out to his many animal friends that are miles away. It's delightfully cheesy.

So yeah, I'm gonna watch this, whenever it becomes available online. There are so many things about it that I find endearing, and this is what I love about Japan. They aren't afraid of their work being seen as silly, or corny, or childish. They have no shame, and the energy and passion that gets injected into faf like this is just contagious. I think I'm going to enjoy Zyuohger a lot.

Anyway, that's just some crap I wanted to talk about today. Thanks for reading.
Rouge's new duds by NickinAmerica
Rouge's new duds
Rouge is like a literal doll that you can dress up with whatever clothes you like. It's SO FUN to just see what you can whip up for her to wear and look snazzy in. I guess the sheer amount of people who do this on DA goes to show you what a great, fun design she is.

In this case, I wanted to show her in more casual wear after quitting GUN and living a more carefree lifestyle, which they were sort of alluding to at the end of SA2, but never went anywhere with as she continued to work for the government in Shadow, 06 and so on.

Here's some practice sketches that show what the palms of her gloves look like, stuff like that. pre15.deviantart.net/a3b7/th/p…

I'm surprised I was able to make the pink and purple accents work at all. It's like the gloves and boots are their own set and the vest and pants are from another set entirely, and then the shirt... it's like she took parts of three different outfits and smooshed them together. It sure was fun to draw and color, though.

Also, I gave her the sky blue chaos emerald cause it matches her eyes.

That's it for today. Now that that video's done, I'm gonna work on commissions an' stuff.

Commissions are always open.

Wow... not one second in, and there's a pop. Oh well. I spent a week just putting this together. It's a bit excessive, I know, but.... I'm just glad to have this video out of the way. Part 6 will be the last one, just some final thoughts on everything.

It'll also be much shorter.
Woah.... getting this video online may not be as easy as I thought.
