Back when we released Episode 21 I said that Dragon Caesar was “one of my favorite characters in this show, but you won’t get to see why for a while”. Well, this episode is why I love Caesar. For once the focus of the episode isn’t on one of the Rangers, or a kid of the week. No, this time Dragon Caesar gets all the attention. He gets his chance to shine and actually develops his character a bit.
For a giant robot that appears whenever a flute is played, he’s got a lot of emotion. Props to the suit actor for being so expressive in that suit. Between the suit movements and the story you really do feel bad for Caesar. He’s like a dog who’s just lost his master and he has no idea what to do with himself. I love every bit of this episode and I’d say this one is as sad, or even sadder than the last episode. I know that’s a big claim to make but just watch and judge for yourself and see why I love Caesar so much.
As a bonus have an MP3 of Dragon Caesar’s theme song!
Bonus Bonus: A picture of the remains of the DoraAntaeus suit. This was taken at Power Morphicon 2012 by GUIS’ JeffB. The suit was actually on sale at the Con. If you had $600 you could have owned a piece of Zyu history!
ANOTHER EDIT! (I’m on fire)
In Episode 36, DoraGunrock’s name has a bit of interesting history behind it. Gunrock is actually the name of The Thing from the Japanese dub of the 60’s Fantastic Four cartoon. in this dub the Fantastic Four are actually “space ninjas”.
Also, the other characters were named Suzie, Fire Boy, and Gomuzu, Doctor Doom was named Akuma Hakase, and the title of the show was Space Ninja Gomozu instead of the Fantastic Four.
Here’s the CN page for it
And here’s the Opening!
