PostSubject: Super Sentai   2nd May 2015, 5:16 am

OK so I've been into this I do belive for half a year. My watch started with Shinkenger just because I adored the actor playing shinkin Blue/Ryunosuke Ikenami than I moved onto Gokaiger Cause of the actor for Basco and I fell in love with both of them than I fallowed those two up with Magiranger because I had just seen Hiroya Matsumoto in a musical Magi ranger than led me to the series I just finished Gobusters because apparently Hiroya Matsumoto wasn't done with just being Magi Yellow he needed to go an be another sentai ranger (love both the guys roles to death but yea) while I've watched those I'm also about half way through Zyuranger (eeeeh Mochi), Gekiranger (half my favorite set of twins), Goseiger (Gosei Red is a former cast mate to GekiBlue and I love the actors for the other two male Goseigers both of which have if i remember right retired from acting I know for a fact Gosei black has as he's decided to study and get a job he can be sure of his future in, in other words he's studying to become a lawyer), and Boukenger cause one again I've watched Bouken black several times (the guy seems to have a love for acting in boy love movies i swear.) I've also watched a couple episodes of Toquger but not enough to form an opinion on the show yet. but yea anyone else enjoy watching? any favorite series, Scenes, characters, actors?

I've been interested in Sentai for 9 years now (first watched in 2006 because I was obsessed with that year's Power Rangers season, Mystic Force and really wanted to see the original one), so yeah, my first show was Magiranger.
Due to the episodes being taken off of YT, I stopped watching and didn't pick up again until 2013. During a time of serious depression, I started watching Shinkenger and I enjoyed it so much that I kept watching Smile

My favorite series is Goseiger, it cheered me up whenever I was sad and Alata is my favorite Red Ranger of all time Very Happy Other favorites are Ian/ KyoryuBlack, Right/Toq#1, Kagura/ Toq#5, Eri/GoseiPink, Yayoi/KyoryuViolet and Miku/MegaPink, but there's so many characters I love <3

So far, I've seen Sun Vulcan (finished that one just yesterday xD), Liveman, Jetman, Zyuranger, Dairanger, Kakuranger, Megaranger, Gaoranger, Abaranger, Dekaranger, Magiranger, Boukenger, Gekiranger (2x), Go-Onger, Shinkenger (2x), Goseiger (2x, re-watching), Gokaiger, Go-Busters (2x), Kyoryuger (2x) and Toqger and I'm currently following Ninninger as well.

Favorite scenes... phew, every season has some great moments and episodes. Some of my all-time favorites are Magiranger stage 24, Go-Onger GP 31, Goseiger Epic 41 and Kyoryuger Brave 24.

Btw., I've also watched both seasons of Akibaranger, a series that is an official parody on the franchise. Smile

PostSubject: Re: Super Sentai   2nd May 2015, 6:12 pm

I was wondering when you would start this topic, Suzu. Smile

I've been interested in sentai for a pretty long time; my very first exposure to it was about 1999 or so when I found an unsubbed episode of Zyuranger (more on this in a bit Razz), but I wasn't able to really start watching anything until around 2002. I watched Hurricanger more or less as it was airing in Japan, although without subs because fansubs really weren't much of a thing yet as far as toku goes. I absolutely fell in love with it, and then started seeking out whatever else I could get my paws on, regardless of series or episode number. So I was watching scattered episodes and movies going as far back as Goranger and Denjiman and Dynaman and then all the way to the more recent (at the time) Gaoranger. Back then, I also made a sentai music video using whatever I had (although mostly Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai, because that had tons of clips of everything), and it accidentally ended up becoming super popular; it's still one of my most popular videos on YouTube now (although I only put it there a few years ago because other people were uploading it and trying to take credit for it).




Anyway, time passed, and I'd been kinda in and out of sentai until Power Rangers just started going downhill. These days, I find myself watching about every other year's show (I skipped last year and Go-Busters, for example), but have watched quite a few from the past several years.

Of what I've seen so far, there's Liveman (unsubbed), Jetman, Zyuranger, nearly all of Dairanger, Hurricanger (unsubbed), Magiranger, about half of Dekaranger and Boukenger, Gekiranger, Shinkenger, Goseiger, Gokaiger, and Kyoryuger (plus the two seasons of Akibaranger, and I'm currently following Ninninger). My top favorites would probably be Gokaiger, Jetman, and Zyuranger.

...Oh Zyuranger. There are not enough words to describe my love of this one. Yes, some of it is MMPR nostalgia, but that's not the main reason. I just love so much about it because I love the more fantasy themes. And of course...there's Geki. My biggest toku crush. [url=https://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa283/Khandri/Morphicon 2014/010-resized_zps56c6f8ae.jpg]Yes, I am extremely biased about this.[/url] I don't care. But he as a character also embodies a lot of the things I believe in too, so it's easy to be attracted to someone like that. (And then of course, [url=https://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa283/Khandri/Lexington 2015/DSCN0466_zpsbyhvtuff.jpg]I met three more of the cast[/url] in March. They're all such wonderful people.)

But yeah, I have a lot to say about sentai. There's a lot I've seen, and a whole lot more that's in my backlog and I have yet to see.

(Edit: No idea why the links to the photos aren't showing up properly. They're fine in the post editor. >_<)

Guess Nao was faster this time.

Holy cow, Khandri, that video was made by YOU? xD I remember that a friend posted it on the German forum I'm in and we talked about it there. Now that's what I call a funny councidence xD

The first show I watched while it was airing was Kyoryuger, but I started it somewhere in the late 30s I think. The show I watched from beginning to end via stream was Toqger. And god, I love Toqger. And Kyoryuger. Aaaand Goseiger of course xD

I've also cosplayed from Super Sentai before. My first Cosplay was Luka from Gokaiger. Back then, I had only Princess Serenity planned for a pretty big con in summer and I thought: No way you can wear that one for three days, especially when it's gonna rain. So I was talking with my (now ex-boy-)friend, we came up with the idea that I could make a Super Sentai. Funnily enough, there was a total of 2 other Toku cosplayers there and one of them happened to be another Luka xD We were so happy to see each other, it was awesome! xD
So far, I've cosplayed to more Yellows (Kotoha from Shinkenger and Ran from Gekiranger), Yayoi from Kyoryuger and Kagura from Toqger. I'm planning to cosplay another Sentai character this year- originally, I thought of Candelira from Kyoryuger, but I might do Fuuka from Ninninger instead... Maybe. xD

I remember shortly after I made that video in '02 and put it up on my website (YouTube didn't exist yet) when all of a sudden it got outright slammed in terms of bandwidth. Turned out that someone on a toku forum had linked to it and everyone was downloading it/trying to stream it. I never really even advertised it anywhere except sharing it with my immediate group of friends (few of whom were into toku), so I didn't expect it to become popular. It just happened.

And that's the story of how I sort of accidentally got an entire fandom 1) interested in Nightwish, and 2) interested in making fan videos.

PostSubject: Re: Super Sentai   3rd May 2015, 8:58 pm

can safely say as much as I love Yuuta and I've loved Geki in what I've seen of Zyuranger my first actual sentai crush was actually on Basco ta Jolokia but that might actually be the fact that I tend to have more of a thing for the villains (as well as have this huge huge thing for Kei Hosogai *still can not make herself believe the man is gonna be 31 in October*) but honestly until I've watched more I think by far Shinkenger, Gokaiger, and Gobuster have been my favorites though Gobuster may be a bit high on my list just because I tend to love a series that can actually make me cry (i don't cry easily so making me cry during anything is no easy feat.) I also kind of have a love for Boukenger vs. Super Sentai though I think that was mainly because I was happy to see Tsubasa back (i do believe at the moment he is my favorite yellow with Luka as a close second.)

I've actually been putting off Kyoryuger because I have actually been keeping up with the last few seasons of power rangers and after finishing Gokaiger weeks before Super Mega ended I was extremely disappointed with the last several episodes and could not bring myself to get as excited about the legend war as I had been before I watched Gokaiger.

I've had the starter for this typed up for months just been to busy to post it until yesterday.

PostSubject: Re: Super Sentai   4th May 2015, 8:37 am

My first ever Sentai crush was Tsubasa/MagiYellow, of course, because Magiranger was my first series. But these days, my number one is Ian/KyoryuBlack. Even though he's a year younger than me, lol xD

As for the Power Rangers/ Super Sentai thing: It's no problem to watch both Dino Charge and Kyoryuger. I loved Kyoryuger and was really pissed when they announced DC (after what they did to Goseiger... *sniff*), but I found myself to be really enjoying Dino Charge- which is quite surprising because the last season I fully enjoyed (and watched from beginning to end) was Mystic Force. Dino Charge does pretty much it's own thing and while it does take some Kyoryuger plot, it sure does it's own thing overall. The characters are also kinda cool- though they will never replace the Kyoryugers. I just love those guys too much!

Dino Charge has been a refreshing change of pace after the disasters that were Samurai and Megaforce, and it made me actually like watching new episodes again. There are still plenty of nods to Kyoryuger, but it's really doing its own thing, and the characters are much more well-rounded and interesting than anyone from the previous four years had been. The cast also really appears to enjoy what they're doing, and they have great chemistry together. A shame that Nickelodeon decided to begin the spring/summer hiatus after only eight episodes. >_<

It also helps that they ditched their previous executive producer--who had been slavisly following sentai plots despite it making no sense, and the fandom had pretty much no love for either--in favor of someone who better "gets" the PR franchise and is particularly well-loved for having written so many episodes in the '90s and early 2000s.

Yeah, the Kyoryuger nods are a little highlight. Yoshi Sudarso, the Blue Ranger, is a huge Sentai fan himself, after all and the others seem to know a little bit as well.
They are such a likeable bunch.

On a side note, has anyone else seen Ninninger 10 already? What do you think of Starninger so far? I'm still not sure about him.

PostSubject: Re: Super Sentai   5th May 2015, 5:16 pm

I personally think it's a matter of personal taste while I find Shinkenger to be the best of what I've watched I have talked to a few people that didn't like it while on the flip side I've talked to people with the same feelings I've had towards the series. and while I've not found one I dislike as of yet (there are a few suits I find that look kinda silly) I've heard people talking about several of the one's I like (or am liking cause I'm still in the middle of them) to be some of the worst I've seen things like Goseiger and Boukenger on this list before. but really best or worst I think is really up to the taste of the person watching.

and totally late reply but unpopular opinion I actually kinda enjoyed Samurai. my problem wih watching the sentai as I watch the PR season is the fact that Not only with what happened with super Mega I'm one of those that compares every little thing to the source material and I'm trying to keep from doing that sinc I know it annoys my brother so as soon as Dino charge ends (whenever that is seriously nick stop leaveing me hanging) i will get started watching it (well and it also give me a chance to start finishing up the one's I'm in the middle of still.

and actually I havn't started the ninninger quit yet got far to many on my plate at the current moment that I'm trying to juggle with a few K drama's.

Of what I've seen in general from a variety of fans, Jetman and Dairanger are often held up as being some of the best. (Having seen all of Jetman and most of Dairanger, I'm inclined to agree.) Gokaiger is also very popular, as is Shinkenger, but it's debatable whether or not anyone considers them among the "best" per se. As was said, it really is a matter of opinion, and what may appeal to one person may not appeal to another. With all the different themes that come up in sentai, there's something for just about everyone. It's just a matter of finding what works for you. Smile

For me, I find that the more fantasy-esque/animal-based concepts appeal more to me than the more sci-fi/vehicle-based ones, hence my love of Zyuranger.

I didn't enjoy Dairanger at all. It was a total mess writing-wise and aside from Shishiranger and Kibaranger, the characters were pretty uninteresting. I don't know why it's so popular.
Jetman, yes, Jetman is pretty neat. 

Yeah, I'm also more of a fantasy kid. My first Sentai was Magiranger, my favorite Sentai is Goseiger and I was born the year the first fantasy-themed Sentai, Zyuranger, aired. So yeah... it feels like fate xD

I've always been more action adventure myself and well in my personal opinion nothing beats out anything Samurai or pirate theme (well as long as their done right that is) I've also always felt like a good villain just makes things so much better (even if they don't come in until 15 episodes in) which would likely explain why Shinkenger and Gokaiger are top favorites for me.

Speaking of good villains, Gekiranger and Toqger have very cool villains. Rio and Mele are just wonderful and Zet is simply amazing. In other words: Watch Toqger! xD

Now that tinyhenshin is re-doing Magiranger, that will be my next rewatch once I finished Blade and Goseiger. I skipped through the first episode already and I just couldn't stop crying. So many wonderful memories~

Also, today's Ninninger was also really fun to watch Smile The show seems to get better every week and the cast also improved a lot.

oh yes I'm loving Rio ad Mele so far they are actually my second and third favorites right after Retsu. and Toqger is definitely on my list pretty far up but I do have a couple others i need to finish since I'm right in the middle of them i just haven't decided which of the four i'm in the middle of i'm gonna start working on finishing (though it will likely start with Boukanger)

Yeah, Retsu was also my fav. Though I found myself liking Gou a lot when I was re-watching the show. He was also Sharivan in the Gavan movies and I really like the actor a lot Smile

Ah, I wish I could say good stuff about Boukenger, but it's one of my least favorites. I love the suit design and I really liked Masumi (Black), Natsuki (Yellow) and Eiji (Silver), but Akashi (Red) is one of my least favorite Red Rangers ever and the story never really grabbed me. I guess the reason why I dislike it so much is my disappointment, because up to that point, I had been very attached to the characters and loved the plots and Boukenger was the first time I didn't feel like that. I usually cry at the end of a season I liked, but I was pretty unemotional about the Boukenger finale :/

I'm a Takagi twins fan so it's one of the few I haven't started watching because of tenimyu actors and Manpei hasn't seemed to disappoint me yet.(didn't even realize there were any in it until i started watching it)

honestly Boukenger kind of pulled me in and i have a hard time stopping when I start watching it to see what's going to happen next. Only one that's actually made me full out cry in the end was gobusters than again I'm not the easiest person to make cry.

Shinpei was also in the first season of Akibaranger- but that one's more fun when you've seen a whole lot of different Sentai series Wink I also liked the Takagi Twins a lot in the Ouran Live Action. Back when I watched Geki, I didn't even know that Manpei had a twin- until episode 38, where Shinpei played his evil reflection xD

I'm easy to make cry, so Boukenger was kinda weird for me.

I'm a fan of a lot of Super Sentai. My favorites would be Megaranger, Gingaman, and Gekiranger. I also enjoyed Gokaiger, though I'd say that, while it can be enjoyable for a first time viewer of Super Sentai, it is most enjoyable for people more familiar with some previous shows. Honorable mentions include Zyuranger (for you 90s Power Rangers fans), Dairanger, and Jetman.
