Very sassy captives.

As the ToQgers try to go save their friends, Madame Noire and red-eyed Empress Grita show up. And she ain’t fucking around/has a new voice actor. I really want her to take a new form though.

Out of nowhere, Empress Grita calls upon her own Darkliner Robo who looks a lot like Prince Vekar from Gokaiger/Super Megaforce. JUST BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO FIGHT.

Screen Shot 2014-07-29 at 11.23.18 PM

Grita’s Robo uses “Darkness Fall” to send the ToQgers (minus Akira who has a sword to his zord’s throat) into, well, darkness. Memories begin to get darker…

Screen Shot 2014-07-29 at 11.25.26 PM

The ToQgers are in trouble!

Screen Shot 2014-07-29 at 11.26.58 PM

The episode leaves us with the ToQgers in trouble, but next episode Cho Cho ToQ Dai-Oh makes it’s debut to put a stop to Schwarz and Grita!

Review:

I loved this episode. We’ve been building to the wedding for awhile and finally learning Madame Noire’s plan was perfect. But then Schwarz’s and Grita’s Robo attacks were random and perfect plots. The humor and battle scenes in this episode were spot on. We’re about half-way through ToQger now, so shit should start going crazy from here on out now. Cho Cho ToQ Dai-Oh looks so bad ass. This episode deserves a stellar 8.5 out of 10. God I really enjoy this season.

Until next time, this has been SimplyScott1/PowerSentai. Stay imaginative!
