I've been reading expectations for Power Rangers Megaforce and Super Megaforce in regards to anniversary elements. Here is some clarification:

Power Rangers Megaforce will be focused on appropriate homage to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. There are some Goseiger elements which already work well with MMPR concepts in addition to some original concepts (high school students, Gosei and Tensou..etc).

Power Rangers Super Megaforce will be focused on all of the seasons in the similar manner that Gokaiger did in Super Sentai. For obvious reasons, I'm not expecting Gokaiger quality concepts (cameos, quotes, references, transformation sequences, music...etc) but we know the transformations will be there.


Anyway, good thing the premiere date has been announced because that means I have 2 weeks to watch all of Goseiger and see for myself if that show is as bad as many Sentai fans have said elsewhere.

I found Goseiger enjoyable. I the problem is it follows Shinkenger which was an incredibly strong entry. Likewise, Gokaiger was another very strong entry. So it's sandwiched between really two good series so it gets a bit more flak than it deserves.

So far,I like what I see with "Power Rangers Megaforce." I hope someday they'd bring in a Japanese character to sort of honor the Japanese side of the franchise. I'd really like it if they did.

Rangers
Cameron Watanabe
Mia Watanabe (unrelated to Cameron)

Non-Rangers
Kanoi Watanabe
Kiya Watanabe (aka Lothor)
Mentor Ji

And those are just from the seasons I know (I missed a lot of them). And that's not counting the copious non-Japanese Asians or Asians of unknown origin. Every season has had at least one Asian character in it.

It's a shame that instead of growing up with it's original audience, it just kept doing the same crap over and over. Now it's barely watchable it's just so cheesy. It's not as bad with Bandai but it's still pretty bad.

Is this a reboot of the original American series or something? A new boss who sounds like Zordon recruiting five high school teenagers (with attitude) from Alien invaders. Seems very similar.

It's an homage to Mighty Morphin', but it's based (loosely) off of Goseiger.

Power Rangers _Megaforce_? When I see that name, it brings to mind the 1982 movie... ^^;

This is what they do in Japan. It's easier, and cheaper this way.
