I have seen some ruckuses for few days about Power Rangers Megaforce, Saban’s adopt of Goseiger. No, the Red is still male. But what matter is Saban’s attempt to mix Goseiger and Gokaiger as upgrade form into an one season length series. Yes, two Sentai series in one season. We have Black and Green from different series, both themes are really different, one uses cards while another uses keys, and so. This causes rage among fans. Well if you asked me I could say this is not good, too.
But wait, I am not one of PR haters. Some PR series are good (even better than the original ones) and make sense. Here are my favorite PR series,
Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue (GoGoV). The original “rescue” theme fits better into the story. Also, Platinum Ranger.
Power Rangers Time Force (Timeranger). The story is almost as same as original’s but deeper and less tears.
Power Rangers In Space (Megaranger). Rather focused on game or digital technology, In Space made it to space them. It works well with the original mecha design.
Power Rangers Lost Galaxy (Gingaman). Story twist and good story based.
Power Rangers Jungle Fury (Gekiranger). This series has 3 original Rangers.
As a 40th anniversary TV series Kamen Rider Fourze is a good series. Fresh look, theme, and story. I could say that using high school life as theme is a bold move. I thought, “how will you add some villains on school? they’re dropped from sky?”. Fortunately, they done it in elegant way. Zodiart itself is my favorite villain, more than Yummy or Dopant.
As Kamen Rider Fourze series is nearing its end, we are already able to take a glance for next 14 th Heisei rider series. It’s titled Kamen Rider Wizard. Using five magical Rings to transform, he’ll fight againt Apparations the villain. The director is Shojiro Nakagawa (Magiranger). The writer is Kida Tsuyoshi (has part on Kamen Rider Hibiki). The producer is Taakaki Utsunomiya (Gokaiger, Shinkenger). Kamen Rider Wizard will be themed over magical/magician things. The device will be Wizard Rings, which will be provide various powers and form change. As figured out by fans, he will use 5 Wizard Rings to henshin. Continue reading →
