I wonder how many of my watchers are fans of Power Rangers or Super Sentai?
I am curious to what you all think are the most iconic Power Ranger seasons?
Some of my favorite are MMPR (of course), Zeo, In Space, SPD, RPM, and Dino Charge. There is still a lot I haven't watched yet, but I have seen Linkara's History of Power Rangers which gave some decent ideas on what season were about.

So what are some of your favorite Power Ranger seasons, Rangers, Zords and moments? :3

I would consider myself a know-it-all when it comes to tokusatsu in general. XD
And I see I'm not the only one who marathoned Linkara's History of videos. ewe
My personal fav's for Power Rangers would be In Space, Lost Galaxy, Time Force, Wild Force, Dino Thunder, SPD, Jungle Fury, RPM, and Dino Charge. >v<
But if we want to talk sentai, I'm always open for conversation. >XD

The Linkara videos are what got me back into the Power Ranger Franchise and was probably the best way to catch back up on the everything that I missed. I spent days binge watching the whole thing when I first found it and then have gone back and re-watched parts of it several times now. XD

Who are some of your favorite Singular Rangers? :3

Well I can't pick just one, but I guess I could use this to better explain what I meant. XD
I was asking what some of your Favorite Rangers by themselves not as a whole team.

Like I like Tommy (of course XD), Titanium Ranger, Quantum Ranger, and Dino Charge Gold Ranger. Especially that last one, I love what they did with his character! "Tis Morphin Time!" XD

I'm more into Super Sentai than Power Rangers; better stories in my opinion.

Right. Though we do get those rare occasions where the Power Rangers Story beats the Super Sentai one, but that is like only once every 10 seasons.
I need to some Super Sentai sometime. Which seasons would you suggest?

Zyuranger, Dairanger, or Kakuranger are my favorite series; you can get them on DVD with English subtitles. Far warning though, the Japanese series are far darker than the American ones.

None of them are on Netflix; only Power Rangers are on it. Only way to view the Super Sentai legally in the US is to buy the DVDs.

There are at least 5 different seasons on DVD on Amazon (all roughly $50.00). They're expensive but worth it if your a Super Sentai fan.

He actually reviewed it on his main show: Atop the 4th Wall.
Here is the Gokaiger review: www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAXKte…

He also he made an episode on Zyuranger, the Sentai that got adapted into Mighty Morphin Season 1!
He reviewed the story arc that introduced the Green Ranger, kind of like comparing it to "Green with Evil": www.youtube.com/watch?v=oF5t_b…

I'm a good fan, and I'm slowly getting into the Super Sentai series. I'm doing a little research on them, even watched and listened to their theme songs. All of them are really good, some of them better than the Power Rangers' themes.

:iconshadoweclipex:
ShadowEclipex Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah. They put so much more effort into the Sentai Songs. I have recently fallen in love with the Toqger Theme Song, it is so Catchy!
I wish Power Rangers adapted Toqger into a PR season, the Imagination powered Trainbow gimmick was a bit weird but the Zords/Mecha were really cool also we would of gotten our first real Orange (my favorite color) Ranger! Ah well, Next Power Rangers will have an Orange Ranger whether the skip a Super Sentai Season or not.

I also LOVE the ToQger theme song. It does sound like a childhood song you remember as a kid and then they made it more emotional and connecting by empowering through music and lyrics.

I have a premise for the ToQger Power Rangers idea:

Five best friends who used to hang out together as kids watched the same show, "Trainbow Station", but now they've grown up and have been separated. Now, thirteen years later, after the "Dino Charge" saga, a new threat has arrived, born from the laziness and greed of humanity, Emperor Draket.

vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/p…

The dark power inhabits the body of a greedy TV producer and that's his human disguise. Soon, after, he wrecks the studio and turns it into his base of operations. However, from that darkness comes the light power, Ressha. Her soul and power is stored and transferred to the costume of the Robot Lady on the Trainbow show, vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/p…

Now, at a train station, the Red Ranger would be going to his new home, after so many moving away from homes, he practically calls the tracks his home. He sees the explosion nearby and goes out to check it out. The other rangers are going about their day: Blue is going to college where he wishes to succeed as a computer engineer, Yellow wishes to be a great chef and learn about dishes from all over the world, Green is trying out for the swim team at the Rangers' local school, but is afraid of heights, and Pink is a sports girl with a heart of gold. The other rangers hear the news of the TV studio explosion and see the Red on TV, so they all rush out to find him.

Soon, all the other Rangers gather to see the Studio in ruins, and find the Robot Lady in the rubble, nearly defeated after fighting against Draket. They come to her rescue and tells her backstory, as well as get to know the Rangers too. She tells them about her new body and learns about the show it's based on. So, she decides to be their guide in helping bring peace to fight against Draken and become a part of her light, giving them the Powers. Now, they become...

Power Rangers: Light Express!

That sounds like a great set up, also Light Express is the best name I have heard for a PR adaption of Toqger. Others I have heard of were Rail Force or Train Force which just didn't sound right.

It reminds me of an idea I have for how GoBuster could work as a RP Adaption. 
Have it be a sequel to RPM in that alternate world. It would fit pretty perfectly with the Animal vehicle Zords and the Powers being made by a government organization. Vengex could show back up after corrupting a set of Ranger Powers (as teased at the end of RPM) and start a 2nd robot war against Humans. Dr.K could return as a developer of the new ranger team. They could even figure out a way to keep "buster" in it. Maybe Power Rangers Machine Busters, or Code Busters, idk. Names are one of my weak points. XD

:icondeviantsponge45:
DeviantSponge45 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah. And that explains why they can't use the RPM powers again, because Venjix hacked himself into the Red Ranger's morpher. Dr. K would recruit new members and some of the OLD RPM rangers would become veterans or returning Rangers, but with new colors. Maybe Dr. K would create those side character robots as bodyguards or pets. They may or may not talk, but they have hearts like humans and are extremely loyal to Dr. K.

How about this title: Power Rangers: Virus/Viral Busters?
Reply
:iconshadoweclipex:
ShadowEclipex Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Also isn't there an evil ranger in GoBuster? Venjix could of transformed and modified the RPM Powers into that one.
And yeah Dr K would make the Robot Buddies as good AIs to help combat Venjix and his new army. Though I feel they should talk this time around it would cause issues if they were around a lot and didn't talk. Not sure which Buster Rangers the old RPM Rangers would be sense Gold and Silver were Robots as well. Maybe they could use the Movie only Black Puma and Green Hippo Zords. Or make a Power Rangers exclusive Purple Lion Ranger kind like what they did with Titanium and the Jungle Fury Spirit Rangers.

Oh! Virus Busters is perfect! XD
You have a bit of talent with names I wish I had. XD

Well, I haven't watched much of the Sentai, so I may be confused on some occassions.
Maybe the green and black powers would come back as a later fourth and fifth rangers, and the Gold and Silver rangers would be later revealed as well.
I also saw there was a Pink Go-Buster. Maybe that's Dr K's child? Since the actors for Dr. K and Ziggy are in real life married. It may be their real girl or some other actress as their teenage daughter.

ShadowEclipex Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh wow I didn't know there was a Pink Go-Buster. It is always so cool how they add in extra rangers in the Sentai. Makes the worlds feel bigger.
So a PR adaptation could have squeeze 3 or 4 more Rangers in then was used regularly in the Sentai. Also I just remembered RPM had a Gold and Silver too, giving another good connection for a Go-Buster adaptation to build on. :D

I like the idea of Dr. K and Ziggy getting married and having a child, especially with what happened with their Actors. Something I else I would love to see in Power Rangers is Billy's kid show up at some point, would be interesting to see the Human-Aquician Hybrid. Wouldn't work for Virus Buster, but something they could still use eventually.

Wish I could give this proper time but a fan of sorts. I've always wanted to see a Realistic take on the show and it looks like we may have it.

I grew up with Ultraman, if that helps set the stage for how I view things :P

The Power Rangers Movie definitely does look like a more realistic take on the PR idea, hopefully it is good and does well enough to spawn a Movie Franchise and revive interesting for Tokusatsu in the West.

I saw maybe a couple episodes of Ultraman when I was little, but I don't remember much. Just vaguely a scene where Ultraman transformed and fought a Monster in a bay area while a bunch of Japanese kids watched.

I need to check out some Super Sentai seasons at some point. Especially ones that never got RP adaptations like Gobuster and Toqger (love the theme song for Toqger btw).

What is your favorite Super Sentai season and who is your favorite Ranger? :3

Since there is no plural that will be tough to choose one, I think it's a tie between Dairanger / Boukenger and Liveman. And my utmost fav Red Ranger of all time I'll say a tie between BoukenRed and Tenkasei Ryō aka RyuuRanger.

You should watch them all for me Super Sentai > Power Rangers :D

The main thing that keeps me checking out Power Rangers is the suits and the giant robots. I really believe that the giant robots is the reason why Power Rangers did better in the USA compared to Kamen Rider and other Tokusatsu shows.
