    Its amazing that they took Super Sentai 16th season and dub over the Japanese action sequences, added American school scenes, and completely created a different story using Jap footage. The power of editing. It took 16 seasons before we got it in the states.

    They're still doing it, adapting previous Sentai seasons and fitting that into whatever they want to do. I learned though that they didn't want to change the suits, thinking it would risk popularity, so they held on for it for as long as possible. But then that meant they eventually ran out of Sentai footage to use, enter the White Ranger, meaning they could use footage from Dairanger, the season that came after Zyuranger, also using the, well I'll call them zords for Sentai too. But since MMPR, they change suits each series, thus being able to use Sentai footage more regularly. Season 2 that I just finished, they didn't use a lot compared to the first season so it meant seeing the American actors in the suits more. Sadly I learned last night, according to the OG Blue Ranger, that "95%" of the time, the people in the suits were the stunt doubles, and that's still a practice. Ah well, at least you know it's them doing the flips and fights out of the suits.

    I've heard though that some seasons of Power Rangers was entirely new material not based on Sentai, but I forgot what those seasons are. I think In Space is one. Lost Galaxy maybe, it was adapted from some Sentai season called Space Jungle or something. Regardless of the quality of seasons, the fact they've been doing that kind of editing and splicing, writing around Sentai footage, or working Sentai footage around their material, for 25 years now, is super impressive. I did see clips from Zyuranger, and there are actual stabs, haven't seen blood, but people are getting stabbed, surely that means they die, the putties specifically. Also, Goldar doesn't talk in that series? Shame, I've grown fond of Goldar now.

    I need to watch some toku. Any recommendations on a streaming site? I've know Crunchyroll has some but it'd be good to know anymore. Ideally, I can chrome cast it from my phone.

    Netflix has all of Power Rangers, VR Troopers, Beetleborgs and Ninja Turtles the Next Mutation. Aside from that, if you're cool with non official sites, TV Nihon has a whole treasure chest of Toku shows!

    I thought it was a CG trailer until I saw BTS stuff showing it was actually JDF wearing that Drakkon suit. I never read or owned a comic book, and while this makes me want to change that, man this should be a movie or TV series. All the views it's getting, on the Power Rangers Now facebook page, they apparently got over 2 million views, almost half a million on Youtube which is really impressive, it should prove there's such a high demand for this.

    Anyways, since my last post I've finished MMPR, watched the first movie again after 15 years, watched Alien Rangers, the 2017 movie, an am currently 1/4 done with Zeo. Everything but the 2017 movie was enjoyable, that's the tl;dr veresion.

    I know many people argue with me, but -way- to much effort seems to have gone into the Drakkon suite, the Yellow Ranger suit, the damaged props and the whole set. Just seems -way- to expensive for a comic book series.

    Older/original stuff, you bet. Power Ranger/bastardized stuff? Nope. Having grown up on the OG 60s/70s stuff, seeing MMPR and related ‘Westernized’ crap kind of breaks my heart.

    Been watching reactions to the trailer and most people are saying that they feel that this would be perfect for a Netflix movie or mini series! I feel the same way. Been checking out the spoilers and I'm hype. I'll grab the eventual hard back when it comes out. :P

    Oh, YES! I LOVE Super Sentai!

    I'm a collector of the robos.

    I have I think about 16 robots and about over 50 mecha.
    I also have most of the black special edition robos and almost all of the chrome silver mecha!
    If anyone's interested I'll post a photo of my mecha and most of the boxes.

    That's most of my Sentai collection. What isn't shown are オーレンジャーロボ(Ohranger Robo), レッドプンチャー(Red puncher), ダラゴンセーザー (Dragon Ceasar) and デ=タスハイパー(Datias Hyper).

    Amazon Prime has Kamen Rider Amazons up as "Amazon Rider" in the US now.

    On of the first truly Translated Kamen Riders to reach the west. *V3 and the two "First" movies being the only other cases I'm aware of*

    I remember watching those Japanese sentai shows back when I was in elementary school...Ah the good old days. (Unlike the western versions they have these days)

    On a side note, it looks like Hideaki Anno is about to do his own version of the Ultraman story:
