Tensou Sentai Goseiger vs. Shinkenger: Epic on Ginmaku (2011)

A scant year has passed since their last team-up and yet the only Shinkenger who can remember not to be a prick is Takeru (Shinken Red). It hurts more this time because while the Go-Ongers ARE reckless and boisterous, the Goseigers are earnest and adorable to a fault. The pairings and the activities engaged in are textbook but somehow work given the sincerity of the angels. The entirety of the Shinkenger team is now free to appear and this leads to post-series character development (!!) and the best utterance of the film. Icing is applied to multiple plot threads once thought complete for the samurais because of the Goseigers’ over-reaching abilities. The mech combination may not look good but it was logically inevitable, is sold by the CGI, and can actually be done with the toys.

Incomprehensibly wonderful.

5 Stars, Gozaru out of 5
