A Debate on Main Heroine: Why Cream Deserves the Title in Juuni Senshi Bakuretsu Eto Ranger


I don’t even know why I am writing this. The anime concerned is 20 years old, nobody (?) is actively talking about it, so what I write here should not make any significant impact. Yet this is the 20th anniversary of the anime airing in my place, and I also learned that there has been a resurgence of this anime in the Western world since 2015, so oddly enough I think a Featured Article on this anime is not entirely out of place. More importantly, discussions on this anime in English seems to be very limited, so I think an article on my blog could be of some help in terms of promotion. One more voice on the internet for this anime should make the anime somewhat more prominent to the anime world, right?

Although I generally expect readers of my blog to have watched at least part of the anime before reading my article (after all, you are stepping into a piece that is full, FULL, of spoilers; in other words, run away now if you don’t want to be so thoroughly spoiled), I would make a slight exception for this anime, simply because it is a 20-year-old anime with no official Western export. Reading the entries on Wikipedia and TV Tropes would certainly help, but here is my brief introduction of the anime.

In the beginning there was the running race…

EtoRangersCream02

The twelve Eto Rangers, Nyanma and Princess Aura. Set: Mugen.

The story of Juuni Senshi Bakuretsu Eto Ranger (十二戦支 爆烈エトレンジャー) was set on Mugen (Dreamland, so to speak), on which our main cast, the animal spirits, lived. Six years before the story proper, Princess Aura, the ruler of Mugen, decided that twelve warriors should be selected as protectors of their land. The selection process turned out to be a running race, of which all participants must run to her palace from their home at midnight on 1 January. The first twelve spirits arrived would be appointed the twelve Eto Rangers.

If it sounds very similar to the tale of the Chinese zodiac to you, you are not wrong: this was just a creative retelling of the tale which served the plot of the anime. Two outcomes of the running race set tune for the plot. Firstly, the twelve Eto Rangers were selected in the following order: rat (Bakumaru; commonly referenced to as a mouse), ox (Hols), tiger (Gaoh), rabbit (Cream), dragon (Drago), snake (Nyorori), horse (Pakaracchi), goat (Soufflé), monkey (Monk), rooster (Tart; a hen), dog (Pochiro), and pig (Urii; he would argue that he was a boar). Secondly, a cat (Chocolat) was disqualified; while the account of the original tale varies, in the anime it was due to her jumping the gun (town bell, actually) for a good five minutes.

EtoRangersCream03Top: Bakumaru, Hols, Gaoh, Cream;
Middle: Drago, Nyorori, Pakaracchi, Soufflé;
Bottom: Monk, Tart, Pochiro, Urii.

Unknown to both Princess Aura and the Eto Rangers back then, Chocolat was actually tricked by the Demon God Baki, who disguised as Princess Aura to tell Chocolat that she could have a special allowance to start her race five minutes before all others, so that she could make sure she would be number one. Of course, the real Princess Aura did not say anything like that, and Chocolat – who indeed arrived first thanks to her early start – was denied passing through the goal line. Feeling betrayed and humiliated, Chocolat turned to Baki for power to take revenge on Princess Aura, and took the name Nyanma (meow-demon, so to speak).

For some reason Nyanma took her revenge some six years later, although her plan was rather simple. As Mugen was supported by the Novel Worlds, Nyanma would send demons called Jyarei Monsters (demon spirit monsters, so to speak) to twist the content of the Novel Worlds in order to destroy them. Consider the Jyarei Monsters as fanfiction writers, and you get the idea. The Eto Rangers were tasked by Princess Aura to search for the Jyarei Monsters in the Novel Worlds and cleanse them with the power of Kirinda (the battleship of the Eto Rangers, in a sense). Since the entire team was considered too big for an adventure, a roulette by Kirinda would decide which Eto Rangers were to be sent into a Novel World for the mission. The roulette was actually so random that it was almost impossible to find a pattern, except for the fact that it almost always picked Bakumaru. A maximum of two more members can be summoned to join the team if necessary, but that’s not the point here...

EtoRangersCream04

Not Russian roulette, but no less deadly.

This is justifiable as Bakumaru was the first of the twelve Eto Rangers and the main character of the anime, and a show would not be a show without its main character always showing. The question we have for the show, although not that much important for shonen shows in the 90s, is that whether it has a main heroine. The Japanese Wikipedia is pretty clear on this matter: Cream, the spirit of rabbit, is the main heroine of the show. The problem is, Cream’s status as the main heroine is actually debatable.

On “Main Heroine”

Before we go on, here’s the question: what makes a girl the main heroine of a show? People nowadays seem to assume that the official partner of the main character (usually male…) would be the main heroine. Hence we see arguments (mainly in China…) on whether Nagi or Athena is the main heroine of Hayate no Gotoku!, surrounding solely on which girl did Hayate love. Yet two very prominent examples would be enough to rebuke this concept: Chi-Chi is the wife of Son Goku, but Bulma is the main heroine of Dragonballs; Ginny Weasley is the wife of Harry Potter, but Hermione Granger is the main heroine of the Harry Potter series. Official couple status does not grant a girl the main heroine status, and vice versa. A main heroine should have a heavy influence on the plot of the show in her own right.

EtoRangersCream05

“Come, Linda – I mean, Kirinda!”

Now, there should be no question that Bakumaru and Cream are an official couple (dubbed adorably as “Bacreamaru”), but by the logic displayed above, Cream should not be guaranteed the “main heroine” title simply because of this. The question is, does Cream have an influence heavy enough on the plot? In other words, is Cream significant enough for the story in her own right? Our headache is, Cream’s situation is rather complicated.

Juuni Senshi Bakuretsu Eto Ranger is an anime of 39 episodes. For the first 22 episodes, Cream had an unquestionably heavy influence on the plot. She was picked 11 times out of 18 missions (61%) – second only to Bakuramu himself (100%…) – and while she had (seriously) zero combat abilities, she contributed to every mission she was on with her keen perceptions and wit, often assisted to drive forward the search for Jyarei Monsters. The pinnacle of her performance is definitely Episode 16, which is really loved by Bacreamaru fans. Even her love story with Bakumaru was essential for the plot, as it was ultimately his determination to save her that led Bakuramu to master his ultimate move. Cream was much more than a cute rabbit on the team; she was indispensible.

EtoRangersCream06

Not that she seemed to mind the backseat, anyway.

Perhaps the producers decided that they had shown us enough Cream (bad mistake if true!), things took a nosedive for her in the next 15 episodes or so. Cream only appeared in 5 of the 12 remaining missions (42%), of which she was only influential in two. She was first overshadowed by Soufflé (who took over leadership from Bakumaru when he was not assigned on mission for the first time) and then by Tart. In the case of the latter, Tart was heavily involved in the plot when she found herself in a love triangle between herself, Gaoh and Chocolat, who was revealed to be Gaoh’s longtime love interest. Some commentators pointed out that Gaoh was essentially the main character of the show in Episodes 30-38, while Tart was the main heroine. While Bakumaru was still very important to the story in those episodes, Cream was demoted to a supporting role, most of the time doing no support at all.

Worse still, there came the final four battles against the major bad guys: two minor evil cat spirits called Roran and Juken, Nyanma, and Baki. While Cream alone held the impossible record of suffering zero injury in all the four fights, she also did nothing (not including the two times she used the Juuni Senshi Combination Beam with the team) in terms of fighting. While Tart held her ground and Soufflé charged towards Roran only to be beaten in a hit, Cream was only seen standing there, sitting by Bakumaru when he was hurt, running for her life, and crying. In terms of fighting, she had the dishonour of being the least useful (or, most useless) Eto Ranger. Surely, this is not something that a main heroine should be known of?

EtoRangersCream07.png

Exactly one person did nothing during this fight…

So, what is this? Should Cream be stripped off the title of main heroine? Was she, after all, just nothing more than a part of “Bakumaru+11”? The often crazy Doughnut Gunso would say: no. My humble view is that, while Cream indeed suffered from reduced screen time in the second half of the show, she totally earned her title of main heroine in the last two episodes, and exactly by being absolutely useless in terms of fighting. Crazy enough, huh?

The beginning that was brought to the end

Let’s go back to Chocolat’s tragic backstory – God must I say, I would turn evil as well if I were in her position. The Eto Rangers were actually told of Chocolat’s disqualification in Episode 33. While Princess Aura and the Eto Rangers never knew exactly what happened that turned Chocolat into Nyanma, they managed to deduce that it was all staged by Baki just to lure Chocolat to the dark side. Genre savvy viewers would expect this information to be vital in their final confrontation against Nyanma/Chocolat: their mission was not to kill Nyanma, but to convince her that she had been tricked into hating the wrong person. Yet when the final battles came, none of the Eto Rangers actually thought of doing so – except Cream.

EtoRangersCream08

How are we supposed to stay calm and talk after seeing this?

This seems understandable when things turned so, so ugly in the last four episodes. After the Eto Rangers defeated Roran with their first Combination Beam, the building they were all in collapsed, killing Hols (God damn it, my zodiac spirit was killed in the stupidest way possible!) and Drago (by very, very far the strongest Eto Ranger in terms of fighting). When Juken – Nyanma’s conscience in a way – decided to help the Eto Rangers, Nyanma set up a trap that killed Nyorori, Pakaracchi and Soufflé, and then she absorbed Juken. Then it was Pochiro and Monk’s turn to face Nyanma and get killed. Gaoh confronted his former lover one last time, but he hesitated to finish her off and got himself blown away. Tart tried to save him without success, and they ended up falling to their deaths together. By four minutes into the commercial break in Episode 38, the twelve Eto Rangers were reduced to three: Bakumaru, Cream and Urii.

Three things can be noted from the slaughter outlined above. Firstly, Nyanma was in full murder mode, and the deaths happened too fast for the Eto Rangers to do anything other than getting killed or saving their own asses. Secondly, whenever the Eto Rangers found their feet, at least one of them would immediately fight Nyanma, without exception. Thirdly, every one of them other than Gaoh called their enemy “Nyanma”, consciously refusing to recognise that this was Chocolat, who was once their friend.

These are all in sharp contrast to Cream, when it was finally her turn to confront Nyanma.

EtoRangersCream09

Cream: “Enough of this!”

Whenever you see a shot just like the above, it always means that the owner of these legs is going to do something epic. If it were the other Eto Rangers (minus Soufflé, perhaps), you would expect them to jump at Nyanma and fight her. Yet when Cream turned around, she started to do the only thing she could do, which arguably should have been the one thing everyone should have done: talking. Cream appealed to the good nature remaining in Nyanma’s heart, and unfailingly called the demon by her real name: “Chocolat”. In Episodes 38 and 39 Cream addressed the cat spirit eight times, and she called her “Chocolat” every single time.

The impact of her talk was significant, as Nyanma stopped fighting and actually talked back – although it was still essentially an argument, the battle started switching from physical to verbal (and mental). Urii and Bakumaru (the latter would have preferred fighting to talking) then joined Cream in reasoning with Nyanma, and bit by bit they drove home the point everyone should have made to her in the first place: that Princess Aura was not at fault for her disqualification, and that – once again, Cream was the one who hit this home run – Baki was actually the one who was responsible.

EtoRangersCream10

The moment Cream delivered a mental knock-out.

The talk started by Cream led to two direct consequences. Firstly, when Nyanma had had enough of Bakumaru (who ended up insulting Nyanma’s intelligence, although he was not in the mood of talking anyway) and started attacking him, Juken (who was convinced by the three Eto Rangers) restrained Nyanma from within long enough for Bakumaru to beat her. Secondly, Baki finally showed up and – most helpfully – abandoned Nyanma immediately. Cream didn’t skip a beat to be the Captain Obvious for once: “Don’t you see, Chocolat? You have only been used by Baki!” Finally, finally, the message got through. The title of Episode 38 was “The End of Anger and Hatred”, and now you know that it was Cream who brought about that “end”.

Remember, all twelve Eto Rangers were told the story of Chocolat’s corruption. They all came to the conclusion that Baki was behind it all along. Yet, somehow, nobody before Cream thought of trying to talk to Nyanma, and they confronted her with deep hostility. Special mention should go to Gaoh, who arguably should have been the one talking to Nyanma (the fact that he briefly awoke Chocolat’s consciousness, and that he got her pinned down, should also have helped), but he didn’t. In the end, this specific task was handled by Cream, and she did her job exceptionally well. For the past hour of screen time, the Eto Rangers had been hunted down one by one while causing next to no harm to Nyanma; a mere ten minutes into the talk initiated by Cream, Nyanma was defeated while nobody was killed. Surely, this should count as signifiant contribution to the plot?

The best part? We are not even done yet.

Return of Chocolat

EtoRangersCream11

Run!!

Then came Episode 39, when Baki started blasting the three Eto Rangers and Nyanma with Imperial Stormtrooper level marksmanship (although, to be fair, the Eto Rangers were first and foremost fast runners). Note that Bakumaru was fighting (or, dodging) Baki while Cream took care of Nyanma before they all started to run, but as they all emerged from the dust Bakumaru and Cream were dragging Nyanma along together, so essentially it was Bakumaru helping Cream to bring Nyanma to safety.

Neither Nyanma nor Bakumaru seemed to understand why they were doing this, and it was understandable: after all, Nyanma had been the enemy of the Eto Rangers for the entire series, and she was responsible for the death of nine of them. Nyanma’s question (“Why save me?”) was appropriate; Bakumaru’s answer (“The hell I know? I don’t know either!”), while truthful, wasn’t helpful. So, moments later, Nyanma asked Cream again why she helped her. Somehow I found it quite touching that Nyanma called Cream by her name, something she hadn’t done for the other Eto Rangers except Gaoh (her old lover) and Bakumaru (her old… plaything).

EtoRangersCream12

“Come home, Chocolat…”

Cream did not respond to the question with a direct answer, but we can figure out what she conveyed to Nyanma while hugging her. Again, it was “Chocolat” to her, not “Nyanma”; in contrast, while Bakumaru used the name “Chocolat” twice in Episode 38, here he reverted back to “Nyanma” again. What Cream saw was not the enemy “Nyanma” whom she should hate, but her friend “Chocolat” who went astray and was tricked and hurt. So, what did Cream tell her lost friend? “Come home, Chocolat,” she said. “Come back to Mugen with us. Everyone is waiting for you, Princess Aura too.”

We can see that Cream was on the verge of crying as she said this. After all, she has lost too many friends already, her beloved Princess was unconscious, her homeland was about to sink, and she could hear Bakumaru screaming in pain as he confronted Baki again. All she wanted at the point, most probably, was to go home with her friends who were still alive, and that included Chocolat. After being rejected by Princess Aura for such a long time, Nyanma finally found acceptance from one of her representatives. Finally Nyanma broke into tears and whispered “Aura Hime-sama” (Princess Aura).

EtoRangersCream13

“Aura Hime… -sama.”

Note that before Chocolat was corrupted by Baki, she loved Princess Aura just as much as the Eto Rangers did, and all of them called the Princess “Aura Hime-sama”. Nyanma dropped the “-sama” honorific when she was led to hate Princess Aura, and simply went with “Aura Hime”. Now that Nyanma found acceptance instead of rejection from Cream, she reverted to calling the Princess “Aura Hime-sama” again. Finally, Nyanma was no more; Chocolat returned.

Once again, Cream was doing a job that arguably should have been done by Gaoh. An intimate love relationship should make it more justifiable for Gaoh to firmly believe that there was still good in Nyanma, and it would be more convincing if he were the one who brought reconciliation to her. Yet it was Cream who ended up brining Chocolat back with a casual friendship, and we never found out what convinced Cream that Nyanma was not pure evil, unless we hand-wave the whole thing with “Cream was just an amazingly forgiving and kind girl”. Well, it would work for me, but…

EtoRangersCream14

We had the “Sixth Ranger”, and now there is the “Thirteenth Ranger”.

In the end, Cream’s kindness was fully rewarded. With the Great God Goal (GGG?!) reviving the nine dead Eto Rangers and restored the strength of the nearly-dead Bakumaru, the team was finally able to unleash their ultimate attack – the Combination Beam – on Baki. Yet it was not powerful enough, and Baki was almost able to overpower the team. That was until Chocolat joined the Combination Beam, and with the combined power of the 13 spirits, Baki was finally destroyed. In other words, if not for Cream’s timely redemption of Chocolat, the team would have lost (unless Goal decided enough was enough and stepped in directly). Talk about Cream’s contribution to the battle again, would we?

Conclusion

What I have been trying to establish in the long, long article above is that Cream had made a vital contribution to the grand finale of the show. Sure, she had been put on the bench for a very long time. Sure, she made absolutely no physical participation in any of the fights (again, ignoring the Combination Beams) as she delivered zero damage and also received zero damage along the way – some fans actually said that it was a miracle. Yet she contributed to the team’s victory in her unique way, and achieved the most important thing in terms of the plot that nobody else – Bakumaru himself included – did (or even thought of): bring back Chocolat. In my opinion, Cream had done more than enough to earn herself the title of “main heroine”.

EtoRangersCream15

The most powerless yet essential main heroine ever?

And what a well-rounded main heroine we have here. While she couldn’t beat an enemy to save her own life (well, she did knock out two mooks with a log in Episode 16), she used her smarts and abilities to help finding Jyarei Monsters and solving problems. Her relationship with Bakuramu was a joy to watch. She had been sacrificed in terms of screen time later in the series so that other girls had a chance to shine, so we cannot even complain that “Cream is a spotlight thief”. She survived long enough to finally step up and save Chocolat – and by extension, the world.

What else could we ask of Cream? Em… just a little more screen time in mid-series, maybe? Certainly, a few flashbacks of her friendship with Chocolat, or at least a few comments on Nyanma from her, would help. Unfortunately, there seems no way that any new official work would be made (well, new stuff is still coming out of Dragonball!), so we can only rely on fan works I guess.

No, I won’t be writing those; I am too lazy.

  1. Pingback: Top 5 Reasons for the Demise of Hayate Report | Hayate Report

  2. While we’re at it, Pochiro deserves some recognition for his heroism in Episode 38 in general. He pretty much saved everyone from falling into lava and took a shot for Monk. If that doesn’t deserve a salute, I don’t know WHAT does.

    • Pochiro is in fact my favourite male character. His overall presence in the show is very strong and I love watching him in action. Perhaps he warrants an article to himself. Let’s see if I can find time to do it.

      Two more special mentions as we are talking about the final confrontation: Nyorori and Pakaracchi. The courage they demonstrated in Episode 37 was something to behold.

    • Pochiro is just my favorite charcter, period. He’s the perfect mix of badass, cute and hilarious. One moment, he’ll be delivering a beatdown and the next, he’ll be delivering glorious sarcastic comic relief. Also, he was ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE in the Hansel And Gretel episode (I saw it with Closed Caption subtitles on Youtube). Of all the light-hearted episodes in the series, that one is my favorite just because of Pochiro’s cute antics. Wearing that baker outfit, crying after getting beaten up after getting caught hording food, making bad puns, trolling Monk. He’s much more adorkable than people give him credit for. His image song “Samurai Dog” is also incredibly addictive and catchy and as a fan of 80s style hard rock music, it really appeals to me. Of all the Eto Ranger deaths, his hit me the hardest. The fact that he died to protect MONK of all characters was a HUGE step for him in terms of character development. Interestingly enough, I’m one of the only people who DOESN’T ship him with Tart (It’s an overrated pairing. I ship PochiroXJyuken after that scene in Bremen Town Musicians where Jyuken glomped Pochiro and started cuddling him. That was too cute for words. Bacreamaru and Pochuken are my OTPs) So yeah, of course I’d love to see an article done for him. He’s awesome enough to deserve one.

      Pakaracchi is a great character, too. If I was a troubled teen from a broken home, I wouldn’t mind having him as a guidence counsellor to talk with and shoot hoops. Much like Pochiro, he’s a great balance of strong fighting skills and good comic relief. He’s just the type of guy it would be easy to make friends with if he were real.

      I’ve never grown up with Eto Rangers as a kid and only just discovered it last month while searching for furry anime.

      I myself am planning on doing a series of Eto Ranger fics where they defend new novel worlds against Jyarei monsters. Some of the novel worlds include Where The Red Fern Grows (Basically Pochiro’s equivalent of Souffle’s Little Mermaid episode), The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, Of Mice And Men, House Of Leaves (Have no idea how I’ll pull THAT one off), Velveteen Rabbit (Cream centered one) and a Christmas Carol (Christmas Special where Scrooge hates on Halloween instead). Also, some of the Eto Rangers have their weapons upgraded (Pakaracchi has a flamethrower in his boomerang, Pochiro has a retractable morningstar hidden in his Nyoibo, Gaoh’s shades can now shoot beams of ice, Souffle gets a supply of smoke bombs, Urii has wrist lasers triggered by laughter and Tart gets steel boots).

      Also, did you know that there’s a website that sells PLUSHIES of the Eto Rangers? I ordered a plush of Pochiro but it won’t arrive til November. They’re not official plushies and they are probably comissions because they take so long to ship but it’s probably worth checking out if you want a plush of an Eto Ranger. The plushies are kinda expensive, though (my Pochiro cost me around $70). Here’s the page if you’re interested: http://www.setsunakou.com/ufo/etorangers.html

    • Wow. As I mentioned in the article itself, I really didn’t expect any discussion on this one because this is an old, old anime. Yet here you are, sharing your love for Pochiro and the anime in general. I am very happy!

      Pochiro just fits into any kind of situation perfectly – except romance. I also do not ship him with Tart, one reason being it is a very last minute hookup (even worse than Pakaracchi-Soufflé, if you ask me), and another being that nothing good happens whenever “chicken” and “dog” are used in the same Chinese idiom. Now that Jyuken doesn’t exist anymore, Pochiro might just remain single. And in any case, he has Monk.

      Cannot wait to see your fanfictions as well. I have been thinking of some ideas myself, including a story focused on Hols. Cream would also have her speed and luck as “weapons”.

    • If Pochiro were thrust into a romantic situation, I could see him as the shy, nervous, timid, constantly blushing type of guy who goes from cool, sarcastic samurai to bumbling and awkward. The Fanfiction series I’m thinking of writing takes place after the 39 episodes so PochiroXTart is a ship but it doesn’t last long (They eventually have a rough breakup). At some point, Chocolat convinces Princess Aura to revive Jyuken to give her a second shot at life and Jyuken becomes an ally to the Eto Rangers as well as a love interest for Pochiro. It isn’t super lovey dovey, though and they are fairly casual about it with a hug or nuzzle here and there.

      To be honest, I could see Pochiro having some great chemistry with a redeemed Jyuken. They’re both cute, smart alecky and decent fighters without Jyuken being a total tsundere like Tart.

      The main villain I thought of is basically a fifth Jyarei cat general. The reason he wasn’t with Gen’En, Gousen, Jyuken and Rouran is because they were actually afraid of him and locked him away. Even Nyanma herself considered him “too dangerous and unpredictable”. He’s pretty much The Joker of the Eto Ranger universe. While he does the usual like send Jyarei monsters to corrupt novel worlds, he eventually breaks free from his prison and cause havoc on Mugen itself by murdering innocent civilians that live there. He also loves changing his appearance from Jyarei cat general to Eto Ranger doppleganger and using it to toy with the Eto Rangers (Example: Pakaracchi is beating him up so he morphs into Urii or Souffle and begs him to stop attacking). I haven’t thought of a name for him yet but he’s basically a sadistic piece of work who plans to revive Bagi no matter what the cost.

    • I could be wrong here, but isn’t Jyuken (more or less) a manifestation of Chocolat’s conscience? In that case Jyuken hasn’t been killed; she is Chocolat. Now that Chocolat has turned good again, reviving Jyuken would mean cloning Chocolat. This could be frightening.

      If anything, why don’t have Pochiro going after Chocolat herself, and have a “love rectangle” of Pochiro, Chocolat, Gaoh and Tart? This would give rise to many opportunities for Monk antics as well.

      In any case, all of the “couples” except Bacreamaru need huge development before they can be taken seriously. It is such a shame that we never had an official sequel to explore them.

  3. Oh…….I forgot about THAT part. Well, in that case, I could have Princess Aura use her magic to help make Jyuken a separate entity from Nyanma/Chocolat so Chocolat can be shipped with Gaoh (That’s what I intend to do in my fic) while Pochiro gets shipped with Jyuken. I mean, if Aura has the power to bring all the rangers back then certainly, she has some other tricks up her sleeve as well. Making Chocolat and Jyuken separate entities could be something Princess Aura could probably do. Most likely, she’d have to perform a ritual of some sort.

    Really, writing continuation fics of this series will be difficult because the final 13 episodes have yet to be subbed so I don’t know EVERY single detail about what’s going on.

    I just finished the “Where The Red Fern Grows” Eto Rangers fic. It can be read here:
    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12088416/1/A-Canine-s-Lament

    Haven’t started on any of the other “episodes” as I’ve been rather busy. Currently, all the Pokemon Sun and Moon hype has distracted me from my writing.

    • I think the only thing that really matters which you missed is just the “Jyuken is Chocolat’s conscience” bit, and that it was Great God Goal who revived all the dead Eto Rangers, not Princess Aura. Other than that I think you already had a good general picture of the last 13 episodes.

      … and Lydia (who was killed by Nyanma and became Kirinda) was revived as well so I was kind of expecting him to be a pilot as himself instead of Kirinda, but that’s nitpicking.

      I will be looking forward to your fic. Let me see if I still have my fanfiction.net account and start following you…
