Sentai Marathon!

Sentai! Not Hentai!

All fellow tokusatsu lovers should know for years that the Power Rangers series is nothing more than a spin-off of Super Sentai series. Cut off the fighting scene, added local acting here and there - walla! Power Rangers!

Before I hop on to the main topic - I'll point of some of the Power Rangers points ^_^
  1. Power Rangers RPM (jap - Engine Sentai Go-Onger) was nicely done. 5/5! The plot, character developements, everything! Watching these gave you the feeling "Am I watching Tokusatsu or Drama?" because it was done on the same concept as the current style drama (Lost, Prison Break, insert you fav drama here - mine is Leverage)
  2. I just recently found a forum post with the links to ALL power rangers episodes (all season, all version, all extras, in Rapidshare) but never actually checked whether the links are still alive. I'll try to waste my time on that later, important stuffs goes first!
  3. Hmm... End of PR points.
Super Sentai points!
  1. Finished watching both Bakuryu Sentai Abaranger and Mahou Sentai Magiranger in 2 weeks! Abaranger, nice story - brought up new feeling to Sentai since it have a really-really-really evil ranger (AbareKiller) that only change side at the very end of the series (which is rare - in Tokusatsu we usually expect new good guys at the half of the series). And as for Magiranger... hard to say but it have it kicks and touch too. The magic spells was weird (Maagi magi magiiro) make me prefer the Power Rangers Version (Mystic Force), the storyline are I-KNOW-THAT-WOULD-HAPPEN, and yet - MagiKing still is my favorite zords for the Magirangers.
  2. Watched another VS film - Shinkenger VS Go-Onger; Definitely entertaining yet you found it wasn't the usual Go-Onger-ruined-everything moment (like in Go-Onger VS Gekiranger - lol). Anyway - it was a nice way to waste my 1 hour + for movies that didn't affect the storyline XP
