Oh neat, a new PR thread. I always enjoy these.

Samurai was terrible, Super Samurai was terrible, Megaforce is just godawful, and it makes me sad to think about what they're going to turn Gokaiger into :smith:

Samurai and Megaforce and now Super Megaforce just really make me sad.

I grew up with Power Rangers and it was always something I could come back to and watch the newest series and it was a dumb and hokey kids show but hey maybe it'd be cool, too, and then they manage to take something as awesome as Gokaiger and turn it into that :smith:


e: Even dumb poo poo like the Pirate Suits being upgrades, and they'll likely never talk about why they're suddenly pirates. THOSE PIRATE SUITS ARE TOO COOL AND DESERVE BETTER.

Lost Galaxy and Lightspeed Rescue had a weird pairing. Like, their songs went together really well and didn't really connect with the songs from the shows before and after them. Watching that dude's medley, too, you can really see a drop off in song quality after Disney got in on it. The Ninja Storm song is good, but after that it's just somehow even more bargain basement than Aaron Waters, the poorly-paid Saban intern whose rough draft track became the actual theme song to MMPR.

Uh, a drop in quality? Sir,

Speaking of Turboranger, anyone know why the Titanium Ranger was based on the Turboranger suits in stead of GoGo V?

I'd assume to set him apart from the other Lightspeed rangers other than just 'being grey'

And it worked pretty well!

So, there's something called Morphin Madness going on where you vote for one of two rangers for sweepstakes entries and coupons for deals on Power Rangers merch.

Only a couple tough choices in the bunch. Zeo 5 VS MMPR Red, for one. I may have lost my PR fan card for voting Doggie Kruger over MMPR White though. :( Sorry, JDF. He's a dog.

Don't make me choose between Quantum and RPM Gold :qq:

e:
also, MMPR Blue is 'hot' but only because he's against loving Megaforce Blue. These are bad brackets.

What's really silly is that I realized I would enjoy Megaforce more if they just replaced the soundtrack:

The real soundtrack is beyond generic and they crudely silence it to fit in their extra quips.

Watching this reminder me of another thing I dislike about Super Mega, but I guess I understand.

I thought it was real badass that Gokaiger didn't have blasters, they just straight up had flintlock pistols that made a boom sound, and then Super Megaforce they just pewpewpew.

I actually really like Battle Japan's helmet. I have no idea how it represents Japan, but I think it's an interesting design.

On one hand,

It's sort of reminiscent of Kikaider's goofy head,

on the other I guess it's kinda like a sun and land of the rising sun and whatnot?

Yeah the quality of a PR season is pretty much inversely related to the quality of the sentai series.

On /m/ recently, In Power Rangers General, I stumbled upon a behind the scenes post explaining the writing conflict between Jon Tzachor and Judd Lynn between Turbo and Time Force

http://deriksmith.livejournal.com/4099.html

Basically, the only reason these seasons weren't like Samurai and Megaforce was because there was compromises in writing.

And then he came back to be executive producer for RPM, which was amazing.

And he's on-board for Dino Charge, so I'm more optimistic than I was previously.

Ok, so I am kind of new to Power Rangers. I loved Mighty Morphin back in the day, but stopped watching it until fairly recently. My girlfriend got me to watch Super Megaforce and I liked it ok, but then she had me watch Gokaiger and now I'm hooked back in. Since then, I've watched Jungle Fury and Mystic Force (which I really liked), Goseiger, Magiranger, and a little bit of Megaforce. I've got Dekaranger, Boukenger, and Gekiranger to try next.

Do you guys prefer to watch the Sentai before the Power Rangers series or vice versa? Or do you just entirely skip one? I watched Magiranger after Mystic Force and found them both really enjoyable and the things that made them different made them both great in their own ways. I apologize if this is something that has been debated to death and I can edit my post accordingly.

I would highly suggest you put Power Rangers RPM next on your watch list. In Space and Time Force are also amazing and I liked SPD a lot.

As far as sentai goes, I like Shinkenger and Gokaiger the best, probably.

Reminds me of Mystic Force when they included the Sentai footage of Rita's actress. Udonna literally says in the span of 3 minutes "Yeah, Rita was an evil sorceress who works for the powers of good and she is the source of our powers so anyway, we need to go talk to her".

They also didn't bother to put any effort into making the dialogue match her mouth like they did in MMPR.

Ahahaha christ, I really didn't like Mystic Force and I completely missed this poo poo. Goddamn I need to find this now.
