Huh, I didn't know that there's a "that garage" in the same vein as "that pool". Good to know, thanks.

IDK I still think the genre Anime Referencing Tokusatsu peaked at Mobile Duty Combat Unit Shinesman.

There are a lot of those, mostly because there's a limited number of spaces where filming the types of things that happen in toku is allowed.

Pretty sure that the whole Pretty Cure franchise is also largely influenced by tokusatsu.

If I recall correctly Sailor Moon, which is basically a precursor to Precure along with Tokyo Mew Mew, was conceived as the female answer to Super Sentai.

Gotta say, I was really disappointed to not see the greatness that is Shinesman mentioned at all in this TWIA. To this day I still can't look at the seafood section at the grocery store without wanting to yell "Salmon Pink!" Laughing

That first part could be an introduction for Akibaranger Laughing
I've watched very few toku shows, but even I could recognize the garage in that screenshot.

Wouldn't be surprised if Saban was a bit salty about their jab at Power Rangers and had a hand it preventing it from ever being seen in the west Laughing
