I'm from America. The community of Power Ranger fans(for if there were no Sentai there would be no Power Rangers) and Sentai fans have gathered up resources to send the Red Cross.

I think the count is more than 5000 dollars



Also this weekend Sentai and kamen Rider resume airing episodes after not airing last week to cover tsunami coverage.

Kamen Rider is nearing it's 40 year. A big 40th anniversary movie is set

The heisei era as it's called, restarted the franchise in 2000.

Re: Power Rangers

Well, I watched the Saturday noon rebroadcast of "There Go the Brides" on DigificWriter's recommendation. And I tend to agree with Kelthaz -- it was a lot more palatable than prior episodes and had a decent story, but the cast still sucks (especially Brittany Anne Pirtle, whose acting is on a school-play level) and the fight banter is still unpleasant and disturbingly bloodthirsty. Also the problem with adapting Shinkenger so exactly is that Japanese attitudes toward gender roles are a couple of decades behind the American curve -- or maybe it's just the Japanese cultural mores that promote quiet endurance of hardship rather than confrontation, but it bugged me that all the kidnapped brides were just passively weeping rather than getting angry about having their weddings ruined. In fact, I was hoping that was where they were going with Mia's staged abduction -- that after she was relieved of her morpher, she'd be thrown in with the other brides and would rally them to stop crying and stand up for themselves.

At least they're moving beyond splattering food on Bulk, but he and Spike didn't really contribute much here. I did like Spike's line after the first abduction, wondering if there was any leftover cake. Although I've just now realized he probably meant wedding cake rather than just being fixated on Bulk's metaphor, so it wasn't quite as silly a comment as I'd thought.

And I guess this "Dekker" guy with the skull face is the inevitable Mysterious Villain Who Turns Out to Be a Brainwashed/Amnesiac Hero and Eventually Becomes the Sixth Ranger. I wonder if there will be anything about this iteration that hasn't already been done several times before.

Re: Power Rangers

They've already cast the Gold Samurai/Shinken Gold. He's suppose to be a Jim Carrey rubber face guy.

So he's basically going to be Genta

Jonathan Tzachor declares Disney seasons are non-canon

From Twitter:
On Saturday 19th March 2011, DarkBlaze_HJU said:

Chris Funaro: "We've been told Jonathan deems nothing since Disney took PR away from MMPR Productions to be canon. They had to fight to include NS-RPM on the official site specifically because Jonathan deemed those seasons out of continuity (no way they were subtracting the potential revenue stream from the reruns simply to kowtow to his demands)."

Poweranimals and myself questioned him on this. His response: "The staff writers have told a few people, myself included. I got told both by the people overseeing the revamp of the official site (specifically that Jonathan wanted the Disney seasons taken down outright) and by one of the writing consultants. My standard two-person confirm policy. Once the identity of the latter is released, nobody should doubt the veracity."

Re: Power Rangers

Oh, so this isn't the Sixth-Ranger-to-be? Well, at least it's not Tommy/Zen-Aku/Koragg all over again. But I'm not happy about the Jim Carrey comparison.

And Tzachor's throwing out everything post-WF? That's a shame. Some of the Disney seasons were disappointing, but they respected what came before and expanded on it fairly well overall. I can understand declaring RPM out of continuity for practical reasons, since it would be hard to reconcile subsequent seasons with it. But tossing them all out just because Saban didn't make them? That's a little extreme.

I mean, it's not like Power Rangers even has a strong continuity anyway. So what's the difference? It seems kind of petty to even try to take them down from the official site.

I can already tell the Legend War footage from Gokaiger will be butchered or it will be all new Saban Approved footage with only 10 teams.

He did, but he was back on Earth without explanation in the tenth anniversary episode "Forever Red" in Wild Force. Like I said, this is not a franchise that has ever had a very tight or unified continuity.

Re: Power Rangers

^Exactly. When the majority of a series is composed of stock footage of another series, then continuity ought to be considered moot. This is a show people watch for fun spandex-on-foam rubber fights, not intricate storytelling.

Re: Power Rangers

I'm a bit late to this conversation, especially since this concerns the first episode. But did I hear correctly? The bad guys are some kind of demon that sustain themselves with a river that flows from tears of fear and sorrow?

Seems a bit darker then most incarnations, although I haven't actively watched in years to be honest. Certainly a step up from finding the villain in a trash can on the moon.

No, they will use all of it and Saban himself will tell Tzachor to take his personal opinion about canon and shove it.

Honestly, Tzachor's just one guy, why should anyone care what he considers canon and what not? He's in charge of Samurai because Saban gave him the job, he's not in charge of the entire franchise. He's an employee and employees don't get to make decisions like that. He can ignore previous seasons for Samurai, but nothing's removed from canon because a butthurt employee doesn't like that Disney continued to produce PR without him.
He doesn't care if a season is Saban or Disney, he considers Wild Force canon and that was a Disney season. The difference? He still worked on it.

Re: Power Rangers

Wildforce was still under Saban after ABC Kid's picked it up.

Ninja Storm was when the change over was complete(New Zealand)
