Ooh, sequel to Shaider… NOT!
Ahh, they never learn.
Frankly, I don’t know what to think anymore. What’s this? Amateur cosplay session? Heck I know better cosplay than your freaking cardboard outfits. And why is M. Bison there lol. Did your Sailormoon zerox become successful? I kinda thought it would come to this. By this time all those dramas I mentioned are over. Well that’s a short one. Did they break new ground? Were they popular? Dunno. I don’t see Lupin action figures that look like the actor. Heck I don’t see anyone selling sailor fuku. Would have been convenient for quick cosplay for girls. Heck I would have “worn” one for the fun of it… I kid I kid.
And now this, trying to hope that your show will be an official sequel to some old Japanese property… I’m betting some Japanese TV comedy show is gonna have a laugh at you when they get this footage. I don’t know if you can even match Japan’s special effects… of the freaking 1980′s. Quoting one of our famous movies: “You’re nothing but a second-rate, trying hard… copycat!”
I got a lot of hate on the previous post telling me I’m too harsh or something like that. Well folks, why should I hate on my own country? I love Philippine entertainment… but there are limits. When our creativity is slowly crapping out on us, I’m starting to cry out loud in despair. Why copy? We can be creative. Look for instance, some folks are reviving our comics industry… betcha don’t know that? Maybe you’re too glued on TV to know. This ridiculous TV show is an example of our entertainment industry either running out of ideas, trying to bank on the success of an international property we don’t even own (that Marimar thing is another example), or just plain for ridiculousness sake.
And yet maybe these kinds of copy-shows sell. I’m not sure, I don’t watch GMA for this. I can find a thousand more television shows better than this. Sorry I don’t fit in their target market… and yet I’m supposed to be. I grew up with those metal hero, sentai and other tokusatsu shows. I enjoyed it as a kid. I’m grateful that the new kids can enjoy what I enjoyed back then, but please, PLEASE do a good job at it. We’re slowly becoming a laughing stock everytime we copy stuff. And next time, please do something compelling, creative and unique.
As long as you continue this kind of status quo and don’t give your shots at entertainment greatness, people will always turn to other avenues (Japan, US and others) for their entertainment.
