  • Who knew the Shencos (or Cincos) were evil?! I don't know about you, but I was shocked.

    8.9
    I had to dock points on this one for getting the Cincos' name wrong (sorry if I'm spelling either version incorrectly). It's freakin' Cinco, NOT Shenco!



    Once I got past that, I really got into it. The jokes were well-timed and funny (especially Otto's "weather forecast"), the animation was decent (except for the over-doing of anime, like with Nova fighting the frogs), and those frogs were SO CUTE!! :D



    Now, I have to question the point of Mandarin's "Trust No One" lesson. Hasn't Chiro already figured that out with the Sunriders? Isn't that beating the stump a little bit? Maybe they stuck that in there to put us on the edge and think, "Well, if the Cincos are evil...then who else is evil?" The fact that Chiro learned to hate the Sunriders, then learned to trust them again, and had to turn around and find out the Cincos were evil...I don't know. Don't you think Chiro has undergone enough emotional abuse already?



    I really liked the development between Mandarin and Veleena in this one. They realize in this ep that they need each other, no matter how much they hate the fact. I have to ask: did Mandarin really save Veleena for the reasons he said...or did he save her out of compassion? Well, considering he's a heartless clone of Mandarin 1.0, I'd say it was purely for personal gain, but it makes you question... And it makes me like the Mandarin character. Thanks to this ep, he has a more dynamic personality; he's not just a faceless villain anymore.



    If you need an in-depth explanation of this episode, PM me and I'll gladly explain it further, but for the sake of everyone else I'll end with this final thought: IT'S FREAKIN CINCO, NOT SHENCO!!moreless

  • Who the frikkin' heck are Ma and Pa Shenko???

    8.0
    Negative Elements: Ooh, creepy stuff man. That's not a bad thing, but it's worthy of starting a negative element section... as far as starting sentences go anyway... Anyway, the animation was the 2nd style, the one I don't like with the exaggerated faces and choppy (maybe it's supposed to be more animeish?) style. The philosophy at the end sounded very wise and all, but I have to disagree partially with it. The statement Antauri made about all people being basically GOOD down deep insode, as a Christian I have to disagree with that statement. Ever since the fall of Adam and Eve, man has been essentially bad (you don't have to teach a child to scream or take something or be selfish) you have to teach them to be GOOD. And true goodness only comes with faith in God. Anyway, so I was a little against what Antauri said there, but heck, he did sound wise. Also I was disappointed in the fact that Sprx and Nova never interacted. Oh, and if you can't frikkin remember a characters name, go frikkin look it up!!! Don't make up a new name that you think sounds frikkin' right!!! It's Ma and Pa CINCO not SHENKO!!! K, I'm done ranting now.



    Posative Elements: What a THRILLER!!! I was on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. I really like this duo of Mandarin and Valeena. Their interaction is amazing, and when he saved her at the end there? Sheesh, can we say DRAMATIC. This is such an original concept! And the "we're all gonna die, it's the end of the world" guy making an appearence? CRACK ME UP!!! Too bad he wasn't holding a sign in this one. rofl.gif I really like the Skeletal Circle sign. It's creepy just to LOOK at. Ma and Pa's monster forms may have been a TAD over the top, but it made sense, since they were joining not only SK's energy but the Dark One's energy with themselves. Exciting, breathtaking, on the edge of your seat action!

    Story/Originality: 8/10

    Use of Characters: 7/10

  • Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

    Who Knew? Ma and Pa Shanco are evil AND Velina's parents? I did not expect this one. From seeing the pics on hyperforce.ultranet.hu, I was expecting them to be evil, but under a spell. Oh yeah, and Skeleton King's head was brought back. I was wondering what they were gonna do with it, and plus there's that silver skull underneath. This is what makes me say, 'why can't they use Velina and Mandarin more?' Now Velina and Mandarin are working together too? I always knew they would make a great team. But why did the Shancos have to be evil?moreless
