A while ago I put up some advice on how to identify Super Sentai music and where you could buy it. Then I felt like a fool, because Volumes 4 and 5 of Shinkenger CDs didn't have the music I thought it was suppose to. (It was all background music, instead of regular vocal tracks) I'm still learning this process myself too.
Anyway, I just got the final Shinkenger CD, Zenkyokushu - and this is what I was waiting for. It has every major vocal song on two disks, including new character sung songs, sound effects from weapons and Origami robots, and music from the Shinkenger vs Go-onger movie.
It's simply the best deal for you're money, which now makes me wonder if I really should wait all year to get the final music CD for Goseiger. That's a pain to wait so long, though... ANYWAY - there's you're ultimate tip - wait until the series is over and get the final CD version. Second best, for your money, is Volume 2 of Sentai Series Music, which is sort of like the mid-way point for a lot of their major songs. Also, always try to hear the actual music from the CD before buying it, to insure no mistakes, which you can do by finding the CD you want at CDJapan and listening to the samples.
I hope this might help someone. The music on Zenkyokushu was definitely worth it. Samurai Ha Oh is my favorite of the tunes.
Here are images from the Shinkenger Movie. I heard that the movie was made to be 3D, but there aren't many theaters equipped to do that in Japan. You can even tell that probably was the intention, with a lot of "come right at you" shots.
This is a blog about Super Sentai. I am trying to show some of the Sentai images I've collected for myself over the years, and have a place where other people can see them all in one place.
The internet just doesn't have many pages that have good quality sentai images, and those that do are scattered and hard to find. So pleae forgive me if I have posted somebody else's image here. If your the originator of one of these images, then please put a post and I'll try and take it down.
I'll also be posting information about Super Sentai and Ranger Profiles - with info on diffrent Rangers, Villains, Allies, and their giant robots (Gattai Focus)
