Frankly, my original take on the series was a "cute attention deficit pile of omake" ... and every episode makes that more substantive an assessment.
Now we have the Ultimate Power Mage Rangerettes Megagroup led by Pimp Negi ... and character development or evolution is probably sidelined (what little there was). Really loathing Baron appearances now as simply time-wasting filler.
Its not that I *dislike* the series... it just is that it seems I'm getting a slideshow of nice stills, brief character moments, comedic gaffes rather than a story. Too much PPD, hardly any Moon Phase.
My current theory is that they're setting up for never-ending seasons of Negito-PokeBabe (puns away...)
