Abaranger's one of my favorites, but I don't mind waiting a while longer. Pre-Zyuranger surprises like this are always welcome.
Abaranger's my favorite, but I can definitely wait. The fact that they're doing Fiveman is very telling of how well these are selling.

so assuming they are going a pattern (which it's early to make a pattern as we are only on two pre-zyu releases)

Abaranger
Dekaranger
Turboranger
Magiranger
Boukenger
Liveman
Gekiranger
Go-Onger
Maskman
shinkenger
GOseiger
Flashman
Gokaiger
Go-Busters
Changeman
Kyoryuger
Toqger
Bioman
Ninninger
Zyuohger
Dynaman
Kyuranger
Lupin/Pato
Goggle-V
Ryusoulger


Of course I don't think this pattern isn't what we are looking for, and this of course doesn't include things like Akibaranger and Sentai Strongest Battle (which I would like to assume Shout Would want to get their hands on) and hopefully at some point movies (or at least vs. films) will start being intergrated. I feel like at least 199 heroes would get a release

This is a step in the right direction.

If this sells, why wouldn't Metalder or B-Fighter?

yes. the community has been begging for official region 1 dvds of super sentai. we're getting them and thankfully people are buying them. i don't see this failing. i honestly see this going all the way and continue as long as super sentai is being released in japan.

I can see this selling but the only thing about Fiveman is it's a bit more untested compared to a season from Zyu onwards or series that had their support in the pre-Zyu such as Liveman, Bioman or Jetman. Really if this sells, its on the Sentai/PR name alone and not as much people being fans or wanting this season.

But hey, unless they surprise us and make Turboranger next, this does pretty much mean we're about to get unleashed Dino Guts after this.

I mean with regards to pre-Zyu sentai, since Jetman is so popular. Obviously, we're through the testing phase for the forward releases.

I would love that personally (and it’s short enough that you could probably fit both seasons on a single set).

Fiveman isn’t a great season but if it does well that means we’ll finally get a complete set of Turboranger subs at some point, which would be nice.

Cause VRT and BeetleBrogs didn't sell.

We don't have figures for those releases, and we were told "these have to sell to get the last volume".

VR isn't Metalder, and Beetleborgs isn't B-Fighter. There is more demand for Toei heroes than Saban schlock. #Riderboard

Fiveman has no brand power. If that sells, you can market anything as "before there was Power Rangers". VR and Masked Rider both used a simmilar phrase for their UK DVDs.

You dismissed a statement because there is no data to back it up, and then follow up with a statement of your own with no data to back it up.

While demand for Kamen Rider Black Rx would likely greatly and noticeably outweigh that of Saban's Masked Rider, I can't imagine the demand (in terms of unit sales) would differ much between VR Troopers and it's early '80s source material.

Your point on Fiveman is valid, though.

Fumiya approves.

Now the world gets to know of the imbalance of the 15 rangers, their trials and tribulations.

Except, I wasn't talking about a specific product. I'm holding my finger to the wind.

Nothing has generated demand for "Saban" since 2011. Interest in Toei's backcatalogue hasn't decreased. Toei shows have a stronger international following than Saban fare.

I agree that Metal Hero content is less alluring, it also lacks the Sentai aesthetic. All things considered, I think they would fare better than any adapatation not called "Power Rangers".

I might skip over Abaranger. Looking more towards Dekaranger and Magiranger on my bucket list.

Out of the maybe 5-10 episodes I've watched of Fiveman, I honestly feel no attachment to it. As weird as it sounds, I'd rather watch Denziman over it or even Turboranger. Haven't seen too much of the mid 80's, but can't wait.

The middle gets really stupid at times but the beginning and end aren't too bad.

It's infamous, and it didn't do well commercially, and there's a fair bit of weirdness to it, but it's got its good points. For anniversary seasons, it's not treated as a pariah, and gets appropriate representation (even getting twice as much representation as normal in Boukenger's monster designs).

It's certainly not being shunned by Shout, at least.
