My favorite part was "Ah, now I understand, you're trying to kill me."

The name of the school is literally "good elementary school"

"Now I get it! You're here to kill me!"
Ken is so perceptive.

One small redeeming factor of the horrible beating at the beginning: A gang full of bullies knowing that Ken is "bad news."

Congratulations to Robot #2 for managing to get a shot in.

Also, condolences to all the humans put out of work by robots.

THE SUSPICIOUS BRIDE

I wonder if, like 90% of women in this show, she's a spooky juralian

I wonder what's up with that blue iris transition they started using a few episodes ago.

Also, poor Yamada. His wife dies, and then everyone stands around joking about how they're going to hook him up with someone else.

I guess apparently he had no actual emotional connection to the woman he married or something since he seems all laughs too.

Which is seriously messed up.

I like the wax figure of famous celebrity "girl in a bikini" (whose name card seems to read, "Gushо̄")

"I think his name was Kabagon."

How did they put all the wax figures back together after he chopped them up?

THE ONES THEY MET IN EGYPT

"It's bad to use charging go for no reason" he said back in episode 4, and yet now uses it just to go to africa without his parent's permission or even a reason

They don't even bother trying to explain why the Juralians are stealing golden crowns and stuff.

Technically, he didn't use Charging Go to go to Africa, he just took the Sky Rod out. He doesn't use Charging Go until there's actually Juralians. (And of course there were Juralians, because why wouldn't there be.)

For all the shit we give Ken for being a little sociopath, the Juralians are also kinda dicks when you get right down to it, though most of that is on their leader being an irrational megalomaniac.

I'm more baffled as to why there would still be treasure hidden in the Sphinx that far into the future, given that pretty much all of the royal tombs of ancient Egypt were thoroughly looted long before most of them were found by modern archeologists.

Wh... what is going on with the perspective in this scene?

Poor horses. Even the fake one. :cry:

Also, even if you're the world's only superhero, it seems kind of weird to be getting showered with favors and invitations to exclusive clubs all the time, regardless of the fact that literally all of them are Juralian traps or military bases about to be blown up by Juralians.

Either the horse+rider are VERY big, or more likely, the animators were told to animate the horse -in front- of the fence and didn't do it. :-I

CIRCUS OF FIENDS

Just uh...

Please note at the end, he says a red beam means that it was set to stun.

He stuns one of the juralians apparently, here. :-I

“How do you know I’m Chargeman Ken?” asks Ken Izumi, who transforms in front of people, uses “Ken” in both names, wears a helmet with a transparent faceshield, and has been publically identified by other people as Chargeman Ken in past episodes :-I

This is the most mournful circus music. Even moreso than the ending theme music.

"This paid off for once!" Barikan says, right after they get free horseback riding lessons, on top of all the other stuff Ken gets for free.

A very reasonable response to anything Ken says from the ballerina lion tamer. Oh, she's a Juralian? Well, it would've been, either way.

The bird at 1:49 is just a cel being dragged across the background. :effort: I was genuinely surprised the hunters weren’t Juralians, considering that they’re somehow even worse people than Ken

I have to retract the statement about the hunters. They show remorse, something that Ken never shows, so they have to be at least on par with him. Still, threatening to murder a child over a bird is :psygum:

Who the fuck is that serious about trophy hunting bluebirds with shotguns?

Why would the Juralians tell the hunters exactly where their real base is?

I love that Ken's solution to dealing with explosive sentient beings (whether a professor or a robot) is to throw them out his ship.

So wait, does Ken's raygun melt the Juralians, or just make them fade out into disappearance? (melting your enemies is kinda disturbing, though :starity: )

Chargeman Ken really gives Jojo's Bizarre Adventure a run for its money in ignoring really obvious warning signs about bad guys.

"I'm Barican's friend!"
"I've never met this guy."
"Awww, Barican, you goof! Let's keep this guy around for several days!"

Nice of Barican to remember that they all have telepathy.

“Ken knows nothing.” —random Juralian who happens to be the most perceptive character in this entire episode (he still gets disintegrated/vanished/melted/exploded, so not too perceptive)

“I swear I’ll get you, Juralians!” *sad music plays* *cut to cheery end credits tune*

The Jeeps of the future must have a poor vehicle safety record if they explode on impact. Also, they either got another Jeep during the time it took to make a monument, or the writers forgot/didn’t care that it exploded (it’s probably one of those) :-I

I'm never done with Chargeman Ken.

If a boxer is literally killing people, why would he still be allowed in the game? What kind of future is this?
