Episode 1

This show is pretty much an otoge version Power Rangers as the MC is a girl who is tasked with managing some pretty boys who can transform into these superheroes and ride bikes to fight alien invaders. Then there's some mysterious girl with long hair that Yosuke is trying to hard to save. That was pretty dull as I though it was going to end up seeing that it's supposed to advertise an upcoming otome game. I'll give it another episode at least.

Episode 1

Strange episode, got the mysterious sci-fi vibes after watching it but the story feels really confusing at the moment.

Curious to learn more about that Yosuke guy especially after seeing some of his past. The alien invasion trope isn't something refreshing either and apparently, the monsters are called Nightfly O'Notes or something. Artwork reminded me a bit of Prince of Stride.

Interesting Mecha theme with a lot of music intertwined, each member I think plays an instrument and it might be part of their power maybe? modern power rangers sort of?

At first I was confused that it wasn't the anime I thought it was. It turns out it is, but I thought it was two worlds of humans fighting each other? I guess they haven't mentioned if the invading monsters are their own species or just weapons. So confused .

Go! Go! Power Rangers!

*Edit*

Disappointed they couldn't think up a name so that the acronym would be SEX instead of SRX.

There are a lot of great new anime this season.

This is not one of them.

To put it bluntly, this show sucks. It's trying to be Macross, Evangelion, and Kamen Rider all at once and failing hilariously at all three. The protagonist is an "edgy" 90s emo guy. Oh my gosh! He can play THREE CHORDS ON A GUITAR! SO EDGY! Give me a break. Then there's the otoge nonsense going on, the generic sci-fi plot...don't get me started on how STUPID the invaders' name is.

It's like someone binged on 80s and 90s "edgy" sci-fi anime, then threw up in a blender. After 7 minutes, I just didn't care anymore.

Episode 2

At least this episode wasn't all over the place like last week's was, but nevertheless it still comes off as just a cheap imitation of the Power Rangers with the only thing out of the ordinary is that it's based off an otome game. Here comes Akira, the one leading the team, and Salome, who works with maitenance. But before they could have a party, there's a Nightfly to swat, and those guys were going to beat each other up had it not been for Akira seeing through the attack. Anyway, I had enough with this.

Curious to see what the end goal is behind Akira's presence.

Second episode was better than the first, but it still hasn't done anything to stick out.

This looks like it's trying to be a male version of Symphogear without the signing, or an all male super sentai with music elements, or a envangelion show but with music (or all of the above at the same time).

Also what's up with the blondie basically flying the color of France but having a japanese name?

Well dropping this. Would have been interesting but it's trying to hard to be a music themed super sentai...

This show must be good if it has 10 posts after 2 episodes.

Decided to try out the first episode. Lots of weird pacing issues and cringey dialogue, but otherwise I thought it was fine.

I like the concept. Basically Sentai Rangers using elements/spirits and sound to fight. I'll give it at least two more episodes if not more.

I actually kinda liked the first episode when I watched it right after it came out, but I certainly can't put my finger on why. It's certainly cringe-y (and more than a little bit, I will say having now watched through 3 episodes.) Maybe it's a weird nostalgia for types-of-shows-I-never-watched. Maybe it's a sense that it's aware of at least some of its flaws (I watched the very beginning of episode 4 just now, and I genuinely chuckled with a good-natured feeling instead of a "seriously?" one. That was super corny, and from it one gets a sense that the creators are not unaware that their show itself is also. It's cheap dopey fun for young ones with little better to do. I can pretend to be a cheap dopey young one for a few minutes every week.

So, maybe, while Bananya is the most stupid show I am watching this season, Scar-red Rider XechS will be the worst show I unexplainedly enjoy a little this season.

Clearly this show never grasped an audience if at 8/12 episodes we're still on Page 1, but it's not terrible I find.

I didn't watch it for awhile, but the last few episodes have given it some life.
