Saw that they took the usual promo photos on that rooftop. It's a classic.

I never said that Both Marvel and Lucasfilm are exactly the same. I was referring to the fact that BoA obviously wanted to pull from Movie Franchises that have been successful in recent years.

Sasori Orange with Shishi Red, Chameleon Green and from what it looks like TOQ 4gou
For some reason I feel like TOQ 4gou would do a good job voicing or acting as one of the villains.
Actually it might be a old photo who knows

Can someone translate that has A,B,C,D in front of it.
Unfortunately the more I look at blue the more his suit looks an eyesore compared to the others. That velveteen/plush material doesnt photograph well at all.

Those are the prizes for the campaign, which is the only way to get Aquarius that we know of right now:

A Prize- not sure, could be to appear in something with Kyuranger though, like a guest spot. This goes to 9 people.

B Prize- Appears to be an original SeizaBlaster that will have your name programmed into it, 90 people get this

C Prize- Campaign Original KyuTama (we know this is Aquarius), 900 people get this

D Prize- Campaign Original Handkerchief, 9,000 people get this.

In total you get 9,999 winners.

I just had a random thought. If this gets adapted after Ninja Steel, would this be Neo Saban's Zeo? I'm purely basing this on the pattern of Dinosaurs and Ninjas.

Neat ^^
Yeah, not a bad way to end Sentai's anniversary series

So there's no guardians of the galaxy or thor influence

The new power rangers movie is a good example. It still looks like a power ranger but evolves the look for the future
A little disheartening to look to Marvel just to help market. I don't need Iron Man and Rocket Raccoon in my Sentai, but they know how to mix serious with silly that Sentai could use just as much as good marketing. Just my thoughts.

I don't think they'd be considered a real Sentai UNLESS they went to that rooftop I'm willing to bet that roof is on one of the buildings at Toei Studios, or at least a building outside that they own.

Tangent: Can you imagine going to work, like an administrative job or something, and bumping into Ex-Aid or Shishi Red? Granted, it'd probably eventually lose it's wow factor, but it'd still be a little cool at least.

While we wait for new teaser,press conference

Let me update something about Kyuranger from twitter





SasoriOrange,ChameleonGreen and ShishiRed

From KajikiYellow actor twitter

He's giving a voice to the character and seem like the girl next to him is the narrator for WashiPink? [or ChameleonGreen but from behind she doesn't look the same to ChameleonGreen]




And from the hashtag #キュウレンジャー  In twitter I found this picture from @onaridayo

There's KajikiYellow and ChameleonGreen and the Neon green ,white blue costume maybe it's a grunt

We've know about the coloured jacket people for a while now. My opinion is that since there is a large starting group of Rangers, I think Jark Matter is made up of many sections or departments like Gaiarc or Gorma. Everyone uses the same grunt, but each section's grunts wear a different colour jacket and may have a unique power.

This is what happens when people misinterpret things. Once again it's been mentioned that bandai just looked at marvel to see how to expand their brand.

Nowhere did they say they want to add marvel characters into Sentai

Companies look to other successful companies all the time for ideas. It's not disheartening

The original observation was "old marvel VS New marvel"

How do we update the look of our main brand but stay true to the original roots

In this case. How do we update the power rangers? Kids should know when they see something it's a power ranger

The new movie is a good example. Updating the look but still looking like power rangers.

Funny how some people complain about Marvel but hey Without Marvel there will be no Super Sentai to begin with ! Remember the collaboration resulting to the creation of the Toku Spiderman then the next project remember the name Battle Fever J.

Heck yeah and funny at somepoint the Super Sentai universe was part of the Marvel Multiverse along with Doctor Who (Yeah Doctor Who was also at some point Marvel).

So I don't mind Marvel inspiration coming in my Super Sentai because it makes sense.

These people wrote Gaim episodes.
I actually like the idea that would be neat that's a long time we didn't have members of the Super Sentai dying. When was the last time a Super Sentai Members actually die ? Go-Busters if I recall with Jin ?

But that was decades before the MCU, whose domination of this decade culturally is probably what some people are bothered about. When it's even influencing Sentai in Japan, it seems ubiquitous. But as has been explained, it's down to BoA looking to Marvel on how to evolve a brand while maintaining familiarity. I think people complaining are just those who missed that when previously mentioned.

Well, Marvel printed Doctor Who comics. It's not like they owned Doctor Who. Same with Transformers, who were also part of Marvel Comics back in the 80s - see black costume Spidey showing up early in the run, or Marvel's Death's Head cropping up in both Transformers and Doctor Who.

But that's semantics. You're right - Doctor Who can be considered part of Marvel, at least from the Marvel end. From the Doctor Who end, everything outside of the show is basically of undetermined canonicty.

The power rangers movie isn't an update; it's an reboot meaning they are replacing most of content in said franchise and starting anew. Also the suits the arsenal the story aren't similar to each other. The first MMPR series gave a more simplistic composition while this movie has a more sophisticated composition with an more dramatic storyline.

You missed out where I said "updating the look".

The movie hasn't replaced anything. It's still about five teenagers who morph and use giant robots to fight Rita Repulsa.


I used the movie as an example of how to evolve a brand(Power Rangers) while maintaining familiarity(Looking like a Power Ranger)








Which goes back to Bandai of America talking with Toei when Kyuranger was being brainstormed.

I do think that without Marvel sentai wouldn't be what it is today, but I do still think that given how successful goranger was, the sentai formula would've still been attempted again at some point. Of course, it would probably mean sentai would be nothing like what it is today, but I still think sentai still would've existed in some way shape or form.

And as for whole kyuranger thing and bandai of america, my major worry is bandai's desire to move away from just spandex suits. You can see it in the new power rangers movie. I don't have a problem with suits that have more than just spandex, but I really like a lot of the suits where it's mostly spandex. For example, I don't want fur on suits to become the norm. I don't want every season having every ranger with shoulder pads. I don't want every season to have the rangers have noticeably different suits aside from their helmets.

I really don't know why Bandai of america want to compete with american superheroes when power rangers are kids superheroes. And as long as it remains primarily a kids show, the brand will never gain the respect that the more established superheroes does, unless the movies continue, and power rangers starts becoming more known and popular through the movies.
