Re: Power Rangers

Well, the Sentai costumes generally tend to fall into a few classes. There are the ones that are animal-themed, the ones that are vehicle-themed, and the ones that are more geometrical. In these, the visors are based on kanji characters, something that's been done before in Ohranger/Zeo, where the sixth Ranger's helmet was shaped like the kanji for "king." (Which was a great multilayered visual pun, since it's a six-pronged symbol and thus continued the 1-2-3-4-5 pattern of the other Rangers' visors, and since the Japanese word for "king" is oh.)

What bugs me about having a Wesley is that we've already had a Wes, the Red Time Force Ranger.
