Never forget that there was a finisher that was literally just “drop all the heavy giant robots on the bad guy.”
Yep. I remember when his story came out a few years ago. They actually JUST did another interview about it a few days ago that went more in-depth. He’s a bit more positive about it now than when the story broke. It still breaks my heart, and makes me mad that the current crew hasn’t tried harder to reach out and make amends by bringing him back in a cool way, rather than bring fucking Jason David Frank back for the umpteenth time.

Cassie, what happened, girl?
"Mia, do you even lift bro?"
Kaleb said that he wanted to grow up to be Power Ranger, and so the Power Rangers wrote him back. :) Check it out at True Heroes of Cosplay. It’s stuff like this that makes me love cosplay and Power Rangers!
Ask me again why I’m proud to be a nerd I DARE you
Today from the archives comes my unused early rough plan for how to adapt the Samurai Sentai Shinkenger season of the Japanese Sentai series for US television as Power Rangers Samurai. Created independently and prior to the official production of the show its fate until now has been just to gather virtual dust in a virtual file. It is presented here for educational purposes and a glimpse into a world of “what if?”
While Shinkenger had many elements that appeal universally it was also a distinctly Japanese story involving elements from Japanese history and culture which might limit its appeal to western audiences without some skillful adaptation and smoothing over. In the summer of 2010, the original producers were back in control of the Power Rangers franchise and looking to adapt Shinkenger for American and international audiences. Luckily for them they knew a writer they could call who spoke Japanese, had a degree in East Asian Languages & Cultures, grew up watching the show as a fan, and had even worked on the show as its head writer. So after getting the call, I shaved my beard and left my mountain refuge for civilization again to find a computer or TV to binge through the 50 or so episodes of Shinkenger in a couple days and come up with a rough plan on how this could be adapted for the US before meeting with the producers.
Power Rangers. Get your shit together, dude. Don’t turn down quality where you need it most.
Power Rangers Megaforce will finally end its hiatus, followed by the premiere of Digimon Fusion.
