    I have a feeling with the way this new show is structured so far.........expect this Sentai team to be the next Power Rangers team that follows after Ninja Steel

    Probably. Actually, very likely when I think about it. I feel like they judge what to skip based on the mech. They might not think the giant cubes will flourish...or the cube anythings.

    Zyuohger did pretty bad in Japan so I would say Kyuranger has a much better chance at being adapted. The 2017 Power Rangers was always going to be a choice between something that isn't super popular here (trains) and something that is but didn't perform well in Japan.

    I think it depends on whether the name is meant to be a reference to Goranger (FiveRanger), seeing as that show also had a constellation motif.
    Well they're only mentioning it now because details about the show are being released. It doesn't mean the collab couldn't have been a year or more ago.
    I think they mean making any changes that might help the inevitable Power Rangers adaptation in the American market without affecting Sentai (which targets a younger age-range).

    For example, IIRC the action figures are typically the best-selling toys in the States, but not so popular in Japan (where the mecha often sell better). Kyuranger has more heroes whose suits have more varied (and yes, less pajama-like) designs. Maybe the thinking is that this is more helpful to the PR toyline than to Sentai's, but shouldn't be a change that hurts sales in Japan?
    I think it means the last option. You should be able to recognise that it's part of the franchise, but they should still be distinctive and not just "a Sentai".

    It's a reference to Goranger, yeah. The blurb on TV Asahi's website said "We look back to the beginning to surpass it with the next generation, the first series was Go(5)ranger, so this was named Kyu(9)ranger"

    Got it.

    Yea, I fully expect the meetings to have been a year or so prior.

    That seems sensible, changing the suits a bit, but with the current writing of these recent PR seasons..well Idk what demographic they're trying to go for :laugh:

    Go-Busters was very distinctive in a good way, the suit designs could have been better, but they seemed inspired. The story was kind of lam after awhile but there was so much potential. They didn't stick to their guns though. Let's see if Kyu even has any guns to stick with.

    Hm, that's kinda cute.

    I'm looking forward to Kyuranger. Zyuohger was decent.

    So Bandai of America helped create this show, which is awesome. I hope this means this show is finally going to do something new and original.

    Not really the show, the toyline, which mostly involves the visuals and not the story.

    ^ Surprised to see names like Obayashi and Keizo Yabe. (What's the last character Obayashi played, Vancuria?) It's also Imai's first regular role in a while. And yet another new Red. (Funny how you'll have to pry Rider from Takaiwa's cold, dead hands, but Red's been a revolving door.) What a weird mix of suit actors.

    Takeuchi as Blue is interesting; everyone had him pegged as Gold, but Takeuchi can play it serious and cool, too, so it's nice he's NOT Gold.

    Yeah I've been wondering what the deal with the Red actors lately is. We haven't had one serve longer than three years since Fukuzawa retired to become a director. With the main team so big I expected at least the seven suit actors from Zyuohger returning so it was very odd to see only four back. Part of me is hoping they end up as the enemies and we maybe get some more action out of them than usual.

    Looks like Kaixa Bird will be encountering some even stranger folks than usual in the Zyuoh vs Ninnin movie...

    The overly positive/naive to a fault type? *scratches chin*

    I didn't have much issues with the suit, but it looks relievingly (just made up a word) better in action than in the scans. That is usually the case, but yea.

    Should have the villains have been revealed already by now? Normally every year when we find out about the new sentai series, the villains would be revealed by late December or early January but nothing came up for this upcoming new series that is about to start in almost 3 weeks.

    If they want this to be a surprise, I repeat, I hope they aren't rubber suits.

    Wouldn't that be something? A show where the villains are actors and the heroes (some, anyway) are rubber suits? Though I guess Go-Busters did that somewhat, too.
