Failure as in performing under Toei/Bandai's sales expectations or failing to match the sales performance of the Kyoryu merchandise. Not everything has to do with episode counts or ratings.
What I think would
happen(which we just went through too)
Cause:Toy sales are terrible and show is terrible(Go-busters)
Effect- A safe by the numbers series(Kyoryuger) with a sure fire hit merchandise gimmick( Dinosaurs)
The trains will sell. C'mon they're trains!
I think toy sales will be safe this year. If the toys sell well and the series does poorly then the franchise will be OKAY
Not great but just okay
2015 sentai would be probably be a safe theme(Cars or Ninjas) with a train sprinkled in the series to keep kids attracted
