Gaia 20

I think I found a new favorite episode, at least in Ultraman Gaia.

In which Gamu's interactions with Kajio are so homoerotic that Kajio has to point out "I'm not gay, you know," and Gamu's attempts to defend himself lead the rest of Team Lightning to look at him from behind like, "Dude, we know you're the LEAST straight person on this base, it's okay."

Also in which Hiroya Fujimiya, whose new official name is "Bitchy Tezuka," kidnaps Gamu and ties him to his exercise equipment in what I swear is his sex dungeon.

And where Gamu asks him if there is ANYONE in the world he cares about and wouldn't want to sacrifice, Bitchy Tezuka literally thinks of his pet hamster TWICE before deciding on his budding love interest.

And I start quoting Juggler's "But the need to protect the weak is Gai's weakness!" when Bitchy Tezuka does something not awful.

And in which the monster makes adorable squeaking noises.

All in all, I consider this a perfect episode.

And this morning, while failing to sleep, I found myself plotting out an Orb/OOO crossover.

Of course this means I have to look up all of the monsters so I can find one other than Galactron that can cross dimensions.

Listening to the Geed soundtrack. I love that Leito gets his own battle theme coupled with Zero's, because it's sweet that our clumsy dork dad gets to be a superhero or at least shares a body with a superhero who decided "We're married now and I've adopted your kid, so anyone who messes with her has to deal with ME." But his normal theme sounds like "trying really hard not to look suspicious and failing really bad."

Riku's themes, on the other hand, sound like they had a few musical cues left over from Juggler and thought, "Hey, he's the son of Ultraman Belial--I'm SURE he could use all of this dark stuff!" and failed to take into account that he's a big ol' dork who sits around and watches his VHS tapes of toku all day and eats instant ramen and bumps his head on the ceiling because he literally just FORGETS he can leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Going through the Orb Origin Saga soundtrack and translating the titles through Google. Discovered one track is "Agul Kourin"--"Agul's Advent."

You fucking did this on purpose.

First, having watched Geed, I have to say it's WEIRD having "Leito" be the official spelling. At least, according to his inbox. Just weird. I prefer "Reito."

Second, I'll be visiting my sister for the eclipse, since she's going to have a better view. She's been wanting an Avatar gif of "Day of Black Sun" to promote on social media, but she hasn't been able to find one and really doesn't know how to make one. So I'm doing that for her. And while nobody else will notice if I fucked up and have the wrong degree of black on the black dot going over the yellow dot, I will. And it will drive me insane, as always. Fucking perfectionism.

So, the TVN sub of Ultraman Orb: The Origin Saga mostly seems similar to the original one I'd seen. But the one difference I noticed is that Gai and Juggler's first mission is supposed to take them to a specific galaxy/nebula where presumably Planet Kanon is. Now, admittedly, I don't know Japanese and Japanese astronomical terms have me at an even bigger loss. But the original sub I saw said they were headed to the Orion Nebula, while TVN says it's the Sagittarius Galaxy (...which is either this or this).

Overall, it doesn't matter, and if I review this, I'll just point it out quickly although the Ultraman Wiki says that "seiun" is the word for "nebula," based off the actual M78 Nebula that is the home system of the Land of Light. But god, I thought the hardest part of this series was trying to figure out if O-50 was their home planet or not. Or how the wiki fact-checks Messier 78's distance from Earth compared to the series.

Seeing this, I can't wait to see the new Ultra. He's adorable, they gave him the perfect name (seriously, ANOTHER kid named Riku trying to use darkness for good? Perfect!), and it looks like he comes pre-packaged with an alien boy with a crush on him. Cute.

Good. Juggler's actions 108 years ago now make more sense in retrospect.

No energy for a decent reaction post, sorry. Shitty days won't go away.

Okay, this is insane and I love it. While I do hope that they continue to do new series...Orb spinoff franchise PLEASE.
