Akibaranger Season 2 Episode 3 Review

 Kibaranger attacked the Akibarangers. They backed away but he kept slashing at them. "Chinaman" hides behind some barrels. Blue says they don't need help from unofficial heroes. Mashina arrives. Akashi says he thought she was defeated. One of the grunts helps her with a script that says she was revived and under a new organization. She says she was giving them the explanation from her general. Kibaranger preforms a sound attack with singers from Gaoranger and it hurts the Akiabranger. They fall. Kibaranger says it was easy. The trio arrive back at headquarters, Luna likes it.
Lumeria and Luna meet properly. Akashi says they will do introductions later, he was sad that Kibaranger is mad. Doc is confused as well. Malshina bathes herself in a shower. She gets dressed and Kibaranger falls in sight of her. Malshina finds him naïve and weak. Malshina answers to the general. General brings up Queen Heridan from two different shows. He has little figurines of the monsters. Luna asks what is Dairanger, everyone does a prat fall. Kozkoz is about to show her on the internet but it is gone. They say that Akibaranger was unpopular and had bad ratings and cancelled after 13 episodes and was the worst series. The actor of Dairanger was also AkibaRed. Akasi realizes that the shop owner was being sarcastic about Akibaranger being great.

They figure that Kibaranger was going to be an extra Ranger but he never got to so maybe that is why he is made. The general makes a new model of the monster. General gets mad at Malshina and transports the monster. Meanwhile, Yumeria and Akashi draw masks of the Dairangers and put them on. Akashi is working on scripts to recreate the best moments of Dairanger to bring back their memories. Even though Luna doesn't understand, she will help, to become a better idol. The three transform.
ChinaRed is on his bike and gets hit in the neck with a tranquilizer. ChinaRed wakes up in a stage and the gang play the Dairanger song and recreate the theme song on stage with a fake dragon and sing the song. But it does work. Malshina shoots at them. The monster introduces himself. He has one eye like a Gorma monster, they go over the names. He says he was created by General Pain. Kibaranger goes after them and they fight. The Akibaranger and ChinaRed run away in their car. Monster blasts at them.
The Akibaranger let go ChinaRed. They put on a muscle suit and AkibaRed takes place of Boxer Jin from Dairanger and makes him go through the trails they did in Episode 27 of Dairanger. AkibaYellow dresses up as a nurse, as Jin's love, she screams to stop and ChinaRed knocks AkibaRed out. ChinaRed changes back to Ryuranger of Dairanger. AkibaYellow puts on a mask of Rin and shows Kibaranger it and the song that Rin sang plays. Kibaranger is back to normal, saying he is the sixth ranger of Dairanger. Malshina is upset that they are back to normal.

The five of them do roll call. They fight the monster. The two Dairanger give them two guns with red hands, they blast them at the monster. Akibared combines the two guns to make Dairen-bomber and destroys the monster. Malshina is mad and leaves. General is concerned. The Akibaranger return and celebrate as Dairange ris back to ebing official. Akashi asks two people who the Dairanger is, they answer. Doc says they have to be concerned for Malshina is back. They wonder how this whole Chinaman thing happened. Akashi remembers the monster mentioned General Pain. Luna said she wouldn't be transforming anymore. She figures they are not filming anymore, she wants to be an idol. Since Akibaranger isn't official anymore, her motivation is gone.

Interesting logic with Dairanger. I like Malshina's attitude. I loved the Dairanger references, even though they stretched a bit with the Rin episode storyline as Kou had nothing to do with that episode.
