If you read my other blog, I've recently been very interested in talking about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and also Usagi Yojimbo.
As for Super Sentai. I feel like ToQger just killed all the momentum I had for the franchise. Its not that its a bad show - but it just doesn't feel like its in my wheelhouse anymore. I hope the next Super Sentai has a more serious and action packed tone, ala Shinkenger, Gokaiger, Gekiranger, ect... Has anyone else been disappointed with ToQger? I tried to be optimistic at first - but it just didn't draw me in, like Super Sentai series usually do. I wonder how the series was received in Japan? (If anyone knows the answer, please leave a message in the comments below!)
That disinterest seemed to permeate over to Kamen Rider Gaim. Yet, finally, I feel like I'm ready to dig into the series (seeing as its nearing completion).
Always fun - for when the series is ending - is the Complete Music Collection that is released. Click here for it!
Oh - and there is the minor little thing of Zyuranger being licensed in America, brought over by Shoutfactory. I really stand stunned and amazed by this news! I never thought it would happen! Yet, with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers getting a reboot movie - I suppose Shoutfactory saw an opportunity to bring over the original series. I've been following their Mighty Morphin Power Ranger DVD releases -- never in my wildest dreams did I think Zyuranger itself would be brought over to America. This is beyond stunning!
I'd advise anyone, who wants to see Super Sentai in a legitimate form, accessible in America - to please buy this series when its released! Maybe Shoutfactory will move onto other Super Sentai series, if they see there is serious interest in bringing over the original source material.
So - leave comments if you'd like. What are you looking forward to, in the world of Tokusatsu? Did ToQger disappoint you as well? What are you hoping for, now that a legitimate Super Sentai series is being licensed over in America?
