Hmm, yeah, I suppose she could be. Still, it's hard to be sure.

Re: Power Rangers

The cast looks ok. I'm glad its getting farther away from Goseiger than Samurai was from Shinkenger. I just hope the writing/dialog is better than Samurai. I honestly can't stand Samurai at all, and I watched all of mystic Force.

Hm? What was wrong with Mystic Force? I quite liked it. It was certainly a lot better-written and better-acted than Samurai.

Re: Power Rangers

I liked parts of MF. I liked the story arc with Udonna, Leanbow, Solaris Knight. Basically, every big plot not involving the main team was usually enjoyable, like Leanbow's redemption and past, etc. Even Clare had an interesting story. I could not stand the main team, except maybe Xander at times. The Red Ranger was the weakest RR in any PR series I've seen. He might have made a decent lower ranked ranger in another series. By lower ranked I mean a ranger who is there but doesn't get a lot of focus or screen time, and isn't the leader or second in command. Blue, Pink, and yellow I still can't remember their names, but they annoyed me. Even at the end I couldn't really care less about the main team.

Re: Power Rangers

Wow, we disagree there. I really liked the Mystic Force team -- they were one of the better casts.

Re: Power Rangers

I've got to agree with Christopher re: Mystic Force; there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. The cast is awesome, the characters are all likeable (IMO), the storyline is the tightest of any season, and it fixes or avoids all of the problems that make its predecessor, S.P.D., the worst season in the franchise.

Re: Power Rangers

Well, I wouldn't say there was nothing wrong with it. The big thing that comes to mind is that Madison was badly underutilized (to the point that one of her very few focus episodes was about her fearing that she didn't contribute enough).

Re: Power Rangers

^ I don't personally see that as an issue, although I do think it would've been nice to have seen her get an extra focus ep or two just because I liked her character.

Re: Power Rangers

Its all just a matter of opinion. I just couldn't stand most of the main cast. Still, they weren't Operation Overdrive bad, or Samurai bad.

Personally, my favorite series is Lost Galaxy. Its my favorite team and my favorite series (although Tommy is probably my favorite ranger). I'm also a big fan of RPM and In Space. I've watched all of Lost Galaxy, Mystic Force, RPM, and In Space. I'm currently watching Lightspeed Rescue, although I'm going through it very slowly. I'm sort of excited for Megaforce (I'm hoping its done better than Samurai), although I love Gokaiger and wish they had adapted that instead of Goseiger (it would be awesome to see the mobirate and ranger keys be made in the US, plus Gokaiger was just a cool show/concept).

They're still using goseiger terms



Morpher is the gosei morpher as opposed to the " tensouder"

Re: Power Rangers

I'm fine with the terms, as long as the story is different, and done well. Sometimes its cool to hear Sentai terms (like the Go-Onger RV in RPM).

Seems logical. Then they can just use the cards, without having to edit them.

Re: Power Rangers

The Gosei Morpher is supposed to have the same amount of sounds as the Tensounder too. The Tensounder had 180 sounds

Re: Power Rangers

Copyright for the next Sentai has been leaked


http://henshinjustice.com/2012/09/05...tai-series-is/




Jyuden Sentai Kyoryuger (獣電戦隊キョウリュウジャー)! Trademarks for what seems to be next Super Sentai series seems to be have registered under the ID 2012-65209! Jyuden consists of the two kanji characters, beast and electricity, while kyoryu means dinosaur. So the next Sentai series is most likely another dinosaur based show.
"Beast Electric Dinosaurs"


We should have more details around December.
