However, Toei did release an English version the song later on performed by MEGA MICKEY. The second clip features a look at the team first becoming the Megarangers. The MegarangersRead More
We skip over the usual opening narration this week to go straight to Don Armage addressing his minions. It’s a strong opening that shows for the first time since the Kyurangers returned to the present that he really is still around and nothing has changed at all. The church setting is a striking choice for a such a short scene but it works really well and it makes me miss the more visually-interesting villain lairs in series like ToQger. The main purpose of this opening to get us onto theRead More
Power Rangers Now has recently revealed new official images for the upcoming figures that will be released in the Spring wave of Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel toyline. The new official images also feature some new reveals. Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel will premiere on n Nickelodeon in 2018.
After going back to the past to change history, the Kyurangers returned to discover the world in a slightly more dystopian place than they left it, now that Garu and Kotaro have been captured, the Orion is badly damaged, and everything they just did seemed like it was for nothing. The start of this episode felt hopeless in a way that only this particular Sentai show can do. Part of Kyuranger‘s appeal to me is that it’s the story of the universe being freed from evil rather than a universeRead More
The official Power Rangers Youtube channel has updated with a new trailer for the Power Rangers Ninja Steel. The trailer features a look at some of the events that will be featured on the show leading to the finale. In a surprise turn of events the second part of the trailer also features a sneak peak to Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel that reveals that Sledge and Wrench have somehow returned.
Power Rangers Now has posted a new promotional poster for Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel. The poster was originally revealed by MIPCOM’s 2017 Magazine. The poster features some brand new modes that the rangers will be receiving in the upcoming season. New information about the show will be unveiled at New York Comic Con 2017, which will be held at the Javits Center in New York on October 5-8.
It’s strange to have something that feels like a final battle against the main villain in Episode 30 of a Sentai series, but here we are. We had an epic fight in a desert with cool drone shots and slo-mo, the main villain tried to attack the rangers’ base, and at least three characters were on the brink of death (and one actually died). It certainly felt endgame-y, and for me it’s exactly the sort of thing the mid-series of a Sentai show needs to keep the momentum going. IRead More
Bandai Japan has updated the official Super Sentai toy sub page with official images of the DX Kyutama Gattai 13 Orion Battler from Uchu Sentai Kyuranger. As stated in the previous set of scans the DX Orion Battler will be a combination of the Battle Orion Ship and the Orion Voyager. The mecha will have four different modes and will feature various lights/ sounds. The mecha will include the Orion and All Voyager Kyutama. The DX Kyutama Gattai 13 Orion Battler is set to release on October 7 in Japan priced at 12,000 Yen (before tax).
This episode got off to a strong start with the team in the present exploring the 300-year-old wreckage of the Orion. The destroyed control room was a simple but effective image that made for a memorable pre-title sequence with a genuine cliffhanger rather than just the promise of a fight. It’s nice to see Sentai attempting a more complicated storyline, and for the most part it works. As far as villain introductions go, it doesn’t get much better than Don Armage’s entrance at the end of this episode. There areRead More
Wow, they really want to make sure we understand the whole ‘two teams: one in the past, one in the present’ thing, huh? They’re even doing on-screen diagrams now. Something else I want to mention about the opening is that Lucky introduced the whole group as the Kyurangers rather than just saying his own name. Since the start of the series Lucky has steadily grown more and more competent as a leader and I can’t tell if it’s an intentional character arc or a side-effect of the show having gainedRead More

So there’s good news and there’s bad news. The bad news is that this new arc is kicking off immediately with a clip show. Why couldn’t we have the clip show last week and the Naga stuff this week? As it stands, the show built up momentum and then immediately threw it away, leading to a weirdly paced start to Naga’s ‘evil ranger’ arc. The good news is that this clip show is genuinely funny. A lot of that comes from the presence of Xiao Longbao, a character who (muchRead More
