From the two robots, Sugata's Great Five was chosen and while the robot is being created, Yamagata is busy creating the Galaxy Robo because he feels like he must create this robot. What's interesting about it is that he claims that the robot has "feelings", which is something that intrigued me. Will it have an AI that can interact with the pilots or it's a sentient robot that can fight without someone controlling it? At the end, Yamagata died because of Galaxy Robo. The flashback of his death was really well made, it didn't help that we didn't know how the heck one giant robot killed a scientist. Was he squashed to death by the robot or was he killed by it by accident? The director never showed it, which added up the mystery of this robot's existence.
Because of one powerful aura attack made by our heroes, it revived the sleeping Galaxy Robo and we finally this robot for the first time. To be honest, it feels like they can make Galaxy Robo's debut into two episodes but decided to make it into a single episode basing only to how Galaxy Robo's first appearance was shot. It feels like they can end the episode with a cliffhanger to give its debut more impact. After seeing Galaxy Robo for the first time, it made me realize that a single episode is enough for this robot's debut.
After it fell down thanks to Tube's attacks, the Maskmen decided to go on board the robot after hearing the professor's voice coming out of it. It's the final voice recording of what happened hours before the professor's death. The revelation that lightning is the reason why the robot went berserk kinda makes sense. I mean, if the robot has feelings, then it is likely that it can feel emotion. The fact that it went berserk basically confirmed that it can display a variety of emotions and showed us that he is one sentient robot.
Because Tube continues its attack, the Maskmen decided that they will try controlling the robot. This is the part of the episode the really disappoints me. It really disappoints me because it feels like the build up they made about the Galaxy Robo being a robot with emotion was thrown out in the window and just showed us the Maskmen are capable to pilot a new robot. Granted, they keep on bringing up that the robot is doing what they want it to do, but the way it sounded felt like a bunch of scientists testing a new machine to see if it is working and not a group of people trying to befriend someone who has feelings.
Before talking about the giant fight, let's first talk about those robot tit guns. Seeing those guns in action for the first time is kinda distracting and it didn't help that they did a close up shot of these guns in action! Hopefully, this is the last time the Super Sentai franchise will feature a robot with tit guns. More of its abilities, the Galaxy Robo is quite fast as it has the ability to dash but before they can arrive to Great Five's burial ground, the MOTW stopped them, which marks the start of the giant fight.
