Fair enough. As I admitted, this type of crossover story is not my usual cup of tea, but overall, I'm generally enjoying it, and now that I got my nits picked, I plan to sit down, shut up, and enjoy the rest of the ride.

Well, I'll admit "Ryger" does roll off the tongue slightly easier, so mea culpa. I guess my inner Getter fanboy had a vein pop on his forehead and just had 2 get that out of his head.
However, I'm afraid Ligers are quite real:

Well, I wasn't so much complaining as I wasn't sure how they fit into UF at first since my introduction to them had so little familiarity with the source work, but now I do. Also, I hope I get to see more scenes with Mojo Jojo, he's unbelievably hilarious.
