I do not expect to receive a response to this, partially because I feel like I am a horrible person right now, but also because I feel that it may be an annoying/rude question. When can we enjoy the next State Of The Wall post? I'm sorry if I sound rude or annoying, and I most likely do. I'm going to stop typing before I embarrass myself even more. Have an excellent day, Linkara, everyone who reads the article/blog, and everyone who comments on this blog/article!

"Oh God, my bladder's in my throat!"

Hilarious start of my morning! Need more fan-dubs from you man!

Asclépios said...

I don't see anything. Is it an April Fool ?

A Fan said...

Laughed... so hard... Happy 4/1!

Kaze Koichi said...

I really liked Linkara as a man in white whose name I didn't bother to remember. Good job, guys.

Jenbrait said...

This was hilarious! Please give my kudos to team 4star and happy april fools day.

Haha, well I was honestly not expecting that, especially with Sfdebris just finishing his look at Gundam 0080 yesterday.

The universe works in mysterious ways.

However I am not so blinded to miss your machiavellian planning.

For the past few years you have been able to get one HOPR out within a year of each other. The last one Mystic Force came out on the 13th or so of April. You were getting close to it not coming out. So by putting this "HOPR" video( which I freaking loved), you don't have to make a another HOPR video till next year.

Which is a bit of a shame as I was hoping to see you get to Power Rangers RPM before 2017. Its honestly the best season of the Disney Era and its what got me back into power rangers after having it up to here with the Kalish Era.

Well kudos to you and the rest of your colleagues for a job well done and you for such genius planning.

OHMIGOD! Thank you so much for reviewing the movie. It's stupid, over-the-top (opening), and never-seen-again-characters but it was fun and a huge movie in our childhoods.

Love how Bulk and Skull had their moment here too. Seasons 2 and 6 were good but a movie moment was awesome too.

E M said...

I did enjoy this, although I was looking forward to the titled prank, where you are the white ranger in the MMPR:TM.

Still, Happy April

John Mourby said...

You had me for a second Lewis, then I noticed the timer (gives away most joke videos). Good show.

My personal favourite quotes....

"I'm tripping so many balls right now"
"Oh God, my bladder's in my throat"
"I suddenly feel orange"


....."My Pwan is gweat!"
"That pilot must be amazing/AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH"

Jesse said...

Note to self. Watch review before commenting. I jumped the gun at seeing HOPR LOL! If you can't laugh at yourself hahaha! :D

Will H said...

Aww, I was really hoping that this would be Power Rangers. Gundam is cool I guess, but I really wanted to see a good Power Rangers parody from you.

Another time I hope...

Anonymous said...

you know, this makes me kinda sad that it's just a one-off thing

I'd really watch it as a series

Matt said...

And thus many fanfics were born this day.

jaden said...

I know this is a April fools joke. You said before you started the history of power rangers that you wouldn't do the movie cause its not in cannon with the show. Plus during that video you kind of already gave a review of the movie. If you wanted to make this an April fools joke involving your history of power rangers, you should have called it history of power rangers operation overdrive. Even if you did that, its not funny when your linking your history of power rangers to an April fools joke. Your fans have been waiting for your next history of power rangers for almost a year. In 10 days (at the time i'm typing this) it will be a year seance your last history of power rangers. That's just a slap in the face to your fans for doing this. Either you get overdrive over with or type an i'm sorry letter for this joke. Why do you think people have been asking for the next one for about 4 years now? They like seeing you review the seasons. Either way this was not cool.

starofjustice said...

I hate April Fools videos, I'm sorry. I wish you people would stop doing them.

Anonymous said...

It amazes me how many whine here (and on others pages). They ask you when your next project is rather than just enjoy what you produced, and they bitch because the project they want you to do hasn't been done yet. How many times do you have to explain HOTPR is a side project? I can't count how many times fans of Doug bitched because he didn't give them a vlog when they expected it. I give you all credit for what you do for a living because it can't be easy dealing with whiny babies.

James said...

You should collab' with TFS more often! You guys are friggin awesome together!

Also, hell of a cluster f-bomb from y'there, Linkara! I think that was the funniest part of it, knowing you!

So in conclusion :D

Cyber Angel said...

I'll admit, what I saw was pretty funny.

HOWEVER! As a fan who has been waiting for the next installment of your now once-a-year History of Power Rangers series, I find this piece of click bait to be a bit appalling.

Anonymous said...

Hooray for Avon.

Scott wachter said...

the funniest part was when you said Gundam was the property of Yoshiuki Tomino. I'm still laughing.

Fake Er said...

I know people will go down on me, but I think it is kind of asinine for something like this to be realease. Considering how long we have to wait for these awesome videos, and then release a parody like this, it just feels like poking fun and laughing at the fans of the series. I know HOPR is a side show and bla bla bla, but that doesn't change the fact that this feels somewhat meanspirited towards us.

Rob S said...

I definitely enjoyed that! Poor Lani...

Saya the Zombie Slayer said...

This actually makes more sense when you remember that Linkara provided voices for minor characters in "Dragon Ball Z Abridged".

In fact, I'm pretty sure it was Linkara who voiced the "I CAN SEE THE FUTURE!" guy in "Father of Goku Abridged".

Ajax of the Anabasis Clan said...

I find kind of hypocritical that Linkara fans get their panties in a twist because he hasn't finished "History of Power Rangers"...

...yet we haven't year of Marzgurl in MONTHS, with her leaving her Ralpg Bakshi Retrospective unfinished, and no clue about what happened to her, yet nobody seems to care about her.

"There, now the ship is lighter because there are less stupid people on it. If anyone else wants to complain, they can address my right ass cheek, next to the spot where they can kiss it!"

That is fucking hilarious. That joke made my day. Keep it up.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

"In fact, I'm pretty sure it was Linkara who voiced the "I CAN SEE THE FUTURE!" guy in "Father of Goku Abridged"."

Nope! My roles in various abridged projects:

-The shop owner in Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged who talks about the "Kill Your Family" show.
-The Elder Namekian in Dragonball Z Abridged who loved to show off his Dragonball.
-The graduating commander in Attack on Titan Abridged who talks about the tradition to all new graduates to paint the walls.

Rue Ryuzaki said...

Hahaha, That was awesome. I miss mobile suit gundam.

Tia Wheeler said...

I'm sorry, but part of me already suspected that this was an April Fool's joke (thank Toonami and MuggleNet for the tolerance). But regardless that was funny, especially this part:

Random old guy: Then we'll sit right here and tell you boring stories about our lives! >:(
Random officer: Thus making us long for the sweet embrace of death...

Anonymous said...

...I'm kinda sad at this April Fools. Of course, Gundam Abridged is funny and all, but I miss HOPR a lot...

Please don't feel pressured abou that though.

LordTerminal said...

"-The Elder Namekian in Dragonball Z Abridged who loved to show off his Dragonball."

THAT WAS YOU?! Could've fooled me. It didn't sound like you.

Kevin said...

1.I think Lester B bum should have started the review of the movie the Chester A bum and Spencer D bum should have attacked him and then cut to this April fools joke. Then at the very end show the bums out cold. That would have been a better April fools joke.

2. was this that joke you were telling me about in the comments back in Pokemon 4ever?

3. I'd say you should get overdrive over with so that way you can move on to a better season of power rangers.

4. I heard a little while ago, that wild force had an a different ending. I heard that Cole began to work at a vet.

5. If you really wanted to make this joke work, then you should done it yesterday to make sure no one would see it coming. At least that's my opinion.

Anonymous said...

You know what would have made a great April fools joke? Actually posting an HOPR episode, I seriously would not have seen that coming!

Someone said...

For those claiming it's clickbait, the video time basically gives it away that it's not a HOPR video. Aslo, Linkara already said that it's a side series.

@miscellaneoussoup: He usually does those after the last review on the schedule.

Eli Kaplan said...

I'm watching the History of the Power Rangers to catch up to this. Right now I'm watching season 3, and Linkara keeps calling the bird-like demons "Tenga". Maybe that's the term the show uses. But Tenga... uh, it's an item for men that you shouldn't google at work. The black bird-men beasts are Tengu.

Hilarious mispronunciation, though I can't decide if it's intentional or not.

Ratin8tor said...

Brace yourself Linkara, for now people will ask, nay demand from you when the next episode of Mobile Suit Gundabridged is :P

Though if you and those other guys did somehow accessed the ability to never to sleep again a full abridged series of the show wouldn't be too bad...

Anonymous said...

Good one. I think the thing that really makes thiis is the fact that you were playing this as straight as I imagine shows like this usually are. (never actually watched something like this)

Fiery Little One

James Picard said...

Okay, I'll admit, you got me. I seriously thought you had given in and done this to appease fans who were getting restless. Well played, Lewis. Well played. Also, I know this probably won't happen, but I'd love to see more of this. It was incredibly hilarious. Also, are we sure the Robot Pilot wasn't drinking Pepsi Crystal?

Anonymous said...

This was hilarious. You should do more Gundabridged videos rather than leaving this as an april fools day video.

Unknown said...

it is a shame that this is a one off. as i'd actually watch a whole series of this.

amazing job!

Evan Dawson-Baglien said...

For some reason I can't stop wondering what the book he's reading at the end is. I tried zooming in, but can't quite make it out.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

"For some reason I can't stop wondering what the book he's reading at the end is. I tried zooming in, but can't quite make it out."

Avon: A Terrible Aspect.

It's a book written by Paul Darrow about his character from Blake's 7. ^_^

Ozaline said...

Heh I didn't realize you were that Elder Namekian, cool.

Now if only Captain Global in Macross had the foresight to to the same thing to Lynn Kaifun that Amuro did to the old people in this dub, brilliant.

Great job.

Adam said...

XD This was priceless. Can we have more Gundam Abridged episodes? All of you did a fantastic job on this April Fools post. I so want to see you do more voice acting like this, Linkara.

Anonymous said...

you know, for someone who tends to throw temper-tantrums whenever a protagonist acts like a jerk, you sure are awesome at playing a jerk protagonist

GameStation3 said...

When will we see a HOPR episode on Operation Overdrive?

MEKristian said...

Felt I had to comment on this one in some fashion or another, so let's go, even if it's kinda awkwardly worded:

This was absolutely fantastic. I saw the title of the video and figured it wasn't actually going to be History of Power Rangers, but had no idea it was going to be something this amazing.

Maybe it worked so well for be because I'd just marathon-ed Unicorn over a weekend a little while ago, or that Build Fighters had ended just the day before, but either way, this was hilarious, and as far as I'm concerned you won April Fools. Hats off to you and Team Four Star.

And that reminds me, major props to KaiserNeko's Bright Noa and LittleKuriboh's Char Aznable. Kaiser managed to hit just the right tone for somebody like Captain Bright, and LK, while always awesome, somehow managed to capture Char perfectly in his performance. Seriously, it may not mean much form some nobody on the internets, but you guys were great.

Well, that's about all I had to say... I suppose I'll end with a huge thank you to you, Lewis, for making this. Thanks.

Sjaak de Wijze said...

darn what happens with other 6 episodes? you did make awsome episode man :D

1tonyvalle said...

@GameStation3: I don't speak for Lewis, but if people kept asking ME that question, here's my answer:

shughan666 said...

Long time watcher and first time commenter here....this was hilarious. Thank you for giving us such a funny and well-made video. In fact, thank you for making videos in period; you and Phelous are my favorite reviewers and your humorous looks at bad media in general help me deal with everyday stresses and problems. I hope to keep laughing with you guys for many years to come. Kudos to TFS also, obviously; DBZ Abridged is one of the best things to happen in entertainment in the last several years.

DestinyZX1 said...

That's awesome. :) Very awesome indeed. I'm a Gundam fan and that's very cool.

DaveWire said...

You turned Kai into Avon! I love it! I've missed LittleKuriboh's abridged series. Great job.

Mitchell said...

BEST ABRIDGED SHOW EVER! No really this is so good! I want more! Screw Attack of Titan or Helsing this is something worthy of Team Four Star's talents! Linkara you do a great job too! I need more of this like I need more DBZ Abridged!
Okay I might be Gundam biased compared to those other shows they've abridged but I had to be honest!

Craig said...

Eli, it wasn't a mispronunciation on Linkara's part. The bird demons were actually called Tenga in that season of Power Rangers. Which is odd because the were actually called Tengu in the movie.

Anonymous said...

I'm just wondering why do you call your self Linkara? Don't get me wrong, I like the name I'm just curious.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

"I'm just wondering why do you call your self Linkara? Don't get me wrong, I like the name I'm just curious."

It's from a terrible series of self-published books I wrote as a teenager.

It's still better than when I called myself PsyWeedle.

Anonymous said...

Oh o.k. I do agree Linkara is a better name. Also I found out something that might be an April fools joke but i'm not sure. Supposedly, Saban brands is going to make another power ranger season called power rangers energy chasers. Power rangers dino charge will air on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons. Power rangers energy chasers will air only on the vortex on the CW. This owner of saban brands said that there bringing power rangers to a hole new level by giving fans 2 original seasons for the first time ever. Thought it will have less episodes and fewer rangers, this season will still pack a punch. From what he said it does not sound like a April fools joke. If it is then ha ha he got me. But it seems real. I don't know what do you think?

Anonymous said...

Oh yea I forgot to mention that saban gives the whole back story of energy chasers. Now if this is fake, then why would they give so much information? Like I said what do you think?

If you had a link to it, I'd appreciate it, since I can find no other evidence of this.

That's where I found it. Like if it is an April fools prank then ha ha they got me. If its real then it will be something different to have 2 power rangers seasons air at the same time.

Yep, it's an April Fool's prank. In fact, the very first line under the headline is that it's Rangercrew's April Fools joke. Sorry. XD

Oh guess I missed that. Oh well they got me thanks.

Cat C said...

This is the worst HOPR ever.

Seriously though this was hysterical.

AVON VOICE! I so love when you get to be Avon. I started laughing before the line got finished about 'I'm not expendable, I'm not stupid, and I'm not going.'

I don't know a ton about Blake 7 but Avon is awesome and any time you use one of his lines/imitate him it's really cool.
