I thought this would be interesting to some of you...this is apparently the original proposal for Power Rangers Samurai.
Wow, that's so much better than what we got. I like the more international cast, the acknowledgment that the Samurai Rangers should be of at least part-Japanese descent (and the Red Ranger actually Japanese-American), the fact that the Red Ranger was uncomfortable with the samurai traditions, Dayu having a human form, Keiji (the Deker equivalent) having a more personal reason to battle the Red Ranger than just "I must find the greatest warrior," etc. Bulk being a secret descendant of a samurai clan is a stretch, and having his son look just like Skull is weird (unless there's something his wife didn't tell him), but the characters certainly would've been better integrated into the series this way.
