>>17039143What kind of weirdo drew that...
>>17039143Why would anyone hug with niggers who steal your toys?
>>17038932note that kyoryuger wasn't just a success because it was dinosaurs and toys, it was also massively kid-friendly
>>17039382Everyone is the best girl in that lineup, except Kairi.
>>17039382Can't have all of them there huh? Poor Pat2 Pat3
>>17039311Amy sure has kid-friendly thighs.
>>17039382Why are there 2 6th rangers, wasn't this series supposed to be about 2 sentai team?
>>17039143If only they knew
Mochizuki (who did Kyuranger) is producing a new show called Detective Zero starting in January, so he's probably not doing Ryusouger.
>>17039572That is two teams you’re seeing
>pairing LvP with a sentai who can barely managed to give proper screentime to each charactersIdk if toei trying to outdo themselves or we're living in the worst timeline
>>17039382>Using Pat U to save space>LupinX using Pat armorKek
I wonder, if Ryusouger bombs, and the rumors are right and its a last attempt to keep Sentai relevant, i'm actually super curious what Hasbro would do, obviously they still have a few seasons to work with, but after those, would they start making New, Original seasons?And if they did, would Toei try to pull a Saban and re-purpose the new american show footage to make a quick buck with under the Super Sentai moniker? Would change it from "Super" Sentai to some other descriptor to keep the familiarity but having them as distinct entities?More importantly, would the Japanese toys of the adaptation still be better than the American ones?
>>17040245So just leave it to Hasbro and just let Toei dub the show back to Japanese?
>>17040245Given Hasbro only rates PR as an 'emerging brand' instead of a full-on 'franchise brand', they may well let it die off if there's no Sentai any more. Why risk that massive extra investment if it's not guaranteed to return on them, eh?
>>17040245I feel Ryusouger's success will come down to it having collectible toys or not. Have the same kind of shit that makes kids wanna buy Kamen Rider toys.
>>17040281If they don't go with a collectible gimmick similar to the Ranger Keys and Beast Batteries, I'll eat my hat.
>>17040245>the revival of Masked Rider after the death of Power Ranger
reminder that tv ratings for kids shows are never going to be what they once were because kids aren't the ones still watching television.
>>17039821Who does that leave?
>>17040305Either Omori, Tsukada, or someone new. Given LuPat's performance, I can't see Utsunomiya going a second year in a row, not that Sentai's had a producer go for multiple years in a row since the rotation started in 2008.
>>17040330I'd be fine with either Omori or Tsukada. They both have good shit under their belts.
>>17040330I'm kinda hoping for Omori, even if his opinion that yellow is a feminine color was retarded.
>>17040330Considering Mochizuki's doing that drama now, it's almost certainly got to be Tsukada then, unless it's a newbie, which no one can really predict until it happens. Supposedly Omori said he was going to take a break after Build, which makes sense considering he did two Rider shows in a row. He could've changed his mind, but if we take him at his word, Tsukada is the only option we know of, and it is conspicuous, given that he recently left the medical drama he was working on just last year, the show that he'd been on since after he did Fourze.
>>17040368With Tsukada behind it Ryusouger would hopefully be at the least pretty entertaining.
>>17040368Isn't Tsukada producing Kaiju Ward Gallas though?
>>17040387He is, but that's just a miniseries, right? If it's not him, then it's got to be a newbie then.
>>17040392I don't think there's been anything on how long the series is supposed to be, but it's been slated for a Spring 2019 release. So he may not have time or simply may not want his attention taken away from an original project.
i just hope my wife is doing fine.......
what is YOUR favorite showa sentai? (gorenger to liveman)
>>17040551Changeman, personally. Although that period from Dynaman to Liveman was some top tier Sentai in general.
>>17040551Liveman, because of their villains and Yellow Lion.
>>17040665You the one with a huge crush on his actor?
Shout marathon returns
>>17040819>kakurangeri sometimes forget how batshit it was
>>17040153>Pat U with Siren Striker armor never
Do you think Noel having the Siren Striker was demanded by the toy company or desired by the writers.
>>17041443The Lupins getting Splash and Siren was 100% a Bandai demand. Maybe it could have been avoided if the teams had actually been fighting and swapping vehicles so kids already wanted to collect them all, but it's pretty clear as it stood that there was a sales gap between the Pats and Lupins that made Bandai think they could salvage some of the numbers if they made everything Lupins-only going forward.
>>17041455Maybe it's just me, but the toys seem kinda lame in general. There's a collectible gimmick going on but there is barely any unity and they don't look cool in the show much of the time.
>>17041500I brought this up in the last thread, but the biggest problem with LuPat's toyline is that the basic arm-swapping gimmick is all there is. Good Cool Kaiser VSX is the only upgrade in the entire show that's anything but an arm swap or head swap on the same core body. Even if you collect all the VS Vehicles, and I have in minipla form, you can't use the vast majority of them together. You can put three vehicles on Goodie, two more on the Magnum, and then the other nine are just sitting there doing nothing. This is an absurd number of spare parts, way more than even Gaoranger, which had four more animals than you could actually use at once. If Victory and Siren were actually Strikers that could combine with the other three auxiliary vehicles of their respective types, then you would have a lot more play value.
>>17040245Power Rangers is on a 2 year plan per series.Busters- 2Toq- 2Zyuoh - 2Kyu - 2LvP - 2Ryu - 2That's 12 years of shows. Sentai would probably be back by then.
>>17041526>implying they'd ever adapt ToQ.It's too weird for Americans.
>>17041532People felt the same way about Go-On.
>>17041500>>17041510They really should have make goody the super upgraded form attachment instead of the main component for the mecha. Its too restricting with 2 teams who are not in good term with one another
>>17041538And they stripped out all the weirder aspects of the show (talking sentient cars, pollution based monsters) it would be hard to do that if the entire show including the Ranger designs are the weirder aspects.
>>17041551Toqger is nowhere near as weird as Go-onger and has less quirky footage. It actually has really cool team attacks.
>>17041510The worst thing in all of this is that they're probably going to continue to make the same mistake next year.
>>17041664I don't think they will. This mistake to this degree is uniquely LuPat. There's been other seasons where you had leftover parts, like Ninnin and Kyu have some, but it's like three or four leftover parts in what is otherwise a large array of complete robots. The worst offender before this was ToQ Rainbow, which didn't use at least 50-60% of the mass of the trains, but it did use parts from all the trains, and if you stuck to Cho Cho ToQ Daioh and Hyper Teioh you would only have Police, Fire and Shield left over. LuPat is the only season to have so few complete robots and so many spare parts, and I would be surprised if they did it again.
>>17041565I'm talking about the designs themselves (both the mechs and suits) they don't seem all that marketable to the west.
>>17041455Well if the Lupins are popular with the people then there really is no helping it. Because this season ultimately is based on the phamtom thief genre and that genre relies on the police never catching or figuring out the identity of the phantom thieves. So Nips by and large are already aware of what will happen before it happens. But the writers are still pretending that they haven't figured it out yet.
>>17041532They can cut the dickzord scene and nothing of value will be lost. Plus, nothing stops them from copying Sentai and making the team kids turned older, well other than the extremely narrow pool of kiwi children who can say their lines and not sound like they're reciting a mother's day poem in a school act.
>>17041745Hasbro could easily adapt and balance the thief vs cop shit by throwing the American pats in a different cockpit where the lupins should be originally
>>17041698Neither were the Go-On mechs. Just keep the fights short like RPM.
>>17040330It's gotta be Omori. Build and Ex-Aid were both hits for Toei and although their "give Sentai to a Rider producer" thing didn't work with Go-Busters or Ninninger, he's had a lot more experience crafting successful shows for Toei.Though he did do three shows in for years, he might be burnt out.
>>17040862>mfw seeing the kunoichi missile in action for the first timeThis show is fun as fuck and I'm loving it. Any other Sentai or Tokusatsu that are like this in terms of tone? Showa or Heisei, it doesn't matter.
>>17042282If you want another something silly you should watch Carranger.
>>17041510I'm not convinced capable of forming new bots is why the other sentai toys sold better.
>>17041745If it was popular then sales wouldn't be this abysmal.
>>17040281Ryusouger sounds executive mandated with dino & we all know how those shows turn out.
>>17042524Bad play factor is known to have impacted the sales of Sentai toys in the past, such as with Gosei Ultimate being a standalone brick that didn't have useful interactions with any of the existing toyline. If the kids aren't playing with most of the LuPat toys they've already got, because they can't play with them all at once, what motivation do parents have to get them more?
>>17042533We'll just have to see, my dear anon-kun.
I'm honestly shocked the lupat toys are not a hit. They're vehicles (boys love vehicles) and they're both transformation trinkets for the changers and parts for the toy mecha too.
>>17042749Sentai toys are too rigid in their transformations and combinations. Kids want to be creative and create their own combinations. They want to go beyond what is shown on the TV show, but sentai designs needlessly limit your combination possibilities. LuPat toys are the worse. you can swap arms and choose between 4 possible heads, but that's it. If the entire line had been designed more like Magic and Splash, each vehicle having it's own head and chest piece, I think the line would've been more popular. Bandai needs to embrace a new design aesthetic in Sentai design or use a more creative approach like their Mugenbine toy line.
from a production standpoint, I honestly think creating two "teams" in lupat is a waste of time>why bother making two teams when it's only one you'll pander to anyway? what a waste of resources
>>17042876I doubt the intention was to focus more on one than the other. But if the toy-buying (or toy-demanding-from-parents, I guess) audience respond better to one than the other, and sales aren't stellar these days in general, you reevaluate your priorities sharpish.
>>17042877that was really expected in a "versus" title though
>>17042877Wait. I got it.The kids like capes.
>>17042881Not necessarily if it sold well, but the way things were, it was unfortunately unavoidable in hindsight. This is Bandai just making poor toyline decisions and backpedaling when it inevitably blew up.
>>17042798That's not the only way they're too rigid. They have very little articulation as well. Sentai mechs are pretty much bricks.
I love LuPat but I’ll admit this season is literally one big pile of wasted potential. There’s so much stuff you can with having two different teams at once. It’s also a shame that we might never get something like this ever again.
>>17043051I don't expect that to change too much. Being a brick is what makes Sentai robots Sentai robots, but where they once stood alone, they now have new competition with Korean kids shows like Tobot, DinoCore and Biklonz, who offer greater articulation and better design. Bandai doesn't have to look any further than the tip of it's nose to place the blame on sagging toy sales.
>>17042798>>17043051>>17043198Not necessarily. Post-Jetman toys are pretty articulate. It's just that something happened around roughly during the Boukenger toys.One thing that's really amiss nowadays are the amount of folding and transforming you get with the toys. The closest modern one you have is Go Busters.
>>17043198It's not like the toys couldn't have better articulation, because every year Bandai puts out minipla versions of the exact same designs, with all the same transformations and combinations, that have all the joints the DX toys are missing.
>>17043207The Minipla versions of the mechs are better then the DX models IMO. They have more... emotion I'll say? Plus the articulation to make more dynamic poses.
>>17043203It's the fucking gimmicks/collectibles. Electronics = brick level 1Collectible gimmick = brick level 2Collectible gimmick that interacts with roleplay item = brick level 3Shurikenjin only got to avoid the bricking by slapping the gimmick on its head.
>>17043375>Shurikenjin only got to avoid the bricking by slapping the gimmick on its head.And then they did it away by slapping it on the chest and on the head twice
>>17043203Post Jetman DX robot toys had just as little articulation as todays (maybe even less). LiveRobo had an elbow bend and that was about it. The rest had a shoulder joint and that was it.
>>17043402They had much more intuitive transformations though, you barely fold or ext
>>17043198>>17043207Lack of articulation would be fine if the toys had some sense of power and presence. Daizyujin, Dairenoh, Muteki Shogun put the aesthetic and power of the combined form first. Most sentai mechas these days end up looking slapped together and having too many colors and then the substitutions and combinations make them look even worse.
G12 is still unironically my favourite combination.
I'm 27 episodes into Kyuranger and really enjoying it, why do people call it bad?
>>17043644You're about 6 episodes from finding out
>Dogranio pouring a glass out for DestraDamn, I didn't think that would get me.For a head boss character who literally does nothing that was actially pretty good
>>17043646So episode 33 something big is happening?
>>17043644A lot of people didn't like cast members and the red is one of the most annoying we've ever had.
>>17043679He seems fine by me, reminds me of Gosei Red.
>>17041532A wild west train Sentai would be rad.
>>17043681A lot of people around here became extremely sensitive about energetic reds after Daigo, and then even more so after Takaharu. Lucky's not one of my favorite reds ever, but he's fine.
>>17043644Because it's around Kyoryuger levels with a bit less success. Garu triggers people here.
>>17043644The red is basically Takaharu but even more annoying (Has a fantastic finale bit though), they give next to no time to Hammy, Sparda, and Raptor, Garu is basically relegated to telling Lucky what an amazing guy he is and how amazing he is and that everyone should realize how amazing he is, they spend so much time developing Stinger when he's incredibly boring and his actor makes him boring as well, and the last third or so feels very rushed in terms of trying to solve all the floating plot points.It's not a show I would ever watch again, Naga, Balance, Kotaro, Champ, Tsurugi, and Shao were the parts that kept me interested and enjoying it whereas everything else wasn't.
>>17043672It's not exactly like that, there's not one big fuck up at that point, it's just when all the little things start to go really wrong. The interesting character storylines are done and dusted, most of the cast are sidelined for good, it brings in some fucking terrible resolutions to the Prof. Anton and Lucky's Dad storylines, the final act is a clusterfuck of dumb ideas, and there's some really crap stand-alone episodes peppered throughout to make it even worse. What good faith it builds up between eps 10 and 30 is pissed away.
>>17043854>even more annoying than TakaharuStopped reading right there. At least the others on the Kyuranger team existed. Takaharu and friends was all Ninninger turned out to be for near 3/4 of the series, except for PARTY NIGHT.
>>17043875>At least the others on the Kyuranger team existed.After the Kakuranger teamup they basically shoved Takaharu into a corner constantly calling him an idiot and they worked with his actor to work it out. He wasn't shouting his catchphrase as much and eventually barely at all, and he found a decent middleground where he could at least act somewhat heroic without being completely grating. Don't forget Yakumo and Kasumi got so many more focus episodes out of nowhere. I'm not saying Takaharu was good at all.Lucky is "YOSSHA LUCKY" all the time, his plot points all basically revolve around being lucky to the point that the final battle even has him riding down on a meteor mirroring the first episode, he's the only one who seems to ever get the big speeches, and then you have Garu and even Hammy saying how amazing he is and his luck is. Hammy even has her learning a lesson from him instead of overcoming things in her first focus episode. They toned it down around the time Tsurugi appeared and he wasn't shouting it at much but his character itself was just grating in general. I have nothing against the actor or anything, but it just wasn't fun to see Lucky on screen at any point but the final battle and the first episode's fight when no one knew any better.At least Lucky shared the Moon/Sun upgrade and I thank him for it because the time he did were fun with the characters, even with him.
>>17043854Lucky doesn't even begin to compare to Takaharu in terms of being annoying. Takaharu is so annoying that even the show had to acknowledge it.
>>17043896At least they had the balls to acknowledge it. The only time someone seriously shat on Lucky with the Kyurangers was the Pegasus episode, where Hammy gets told to fuck off cause "WTF LUCKY WORKS SO HARD!!1!"
>>17043486That's because goonger mecha are aesthetically pleasing, when they aren't and they clusterfuck then it's just a piled turdEngine oh is one of my favorite mecha, I wish there was an episode where it was alternate reality where the engines were just cars, no eyes and what not. Regardless that was a damn fine design, so was gunbaroh and carrygator is one of my favorite engines
>>17043896I could not stand YOSSHA LUCKY and it was painful every time he had to shout it. Takaharu was an idiot and the MOETTE KITAA nonsense was pretty much immediately put a stop to and he basically became a side character outside of when he got his upgrade and the fight against his rival in the early episodes because the director's saw he could not pull off the catchphrase and the actor was being grating so they reworked things.Lucky constantly has focus, Lucky constantly shouts his catchphrase sometimes multiple times an episode, his biggest worry is simply that he's not lucky, he's the one who constantly solves disputes or figures out an answer to something, and it's simply frustrating to see this happen over and over and over again. Once Tsurugi comes into play, yes, he's a bit more reserved in shouting his catchphrase and you have more focus on other characters because the episodes are about them, but Lucky still finds a way to weasel into everything.Tsurugi has a problem with repeating his catchphrase as well, I doubt anyone would disagree with that, but at least he's not as grating, he loses, he has tons of failures, he tries to work the catchphrase into regular discussions, and his act of being the best constantly falls apart at the seams and he's tested. Lucky just seems to be great at everything barring his dad because of his luck.
>>17043925>Tsurugi has a problem with repeating his Legendary catchphrase as wellnante kotto, what an opinion
>>17043929It was too legendary for my mere ears at times.
>>17043457This is very true and confuses me because nips don't give a shit about the individual mecha given the recent designs these past few years, The toys and designs need more transformationsThe mecha are not imposing anymore when a toddler brick of simplicity is an arm and doesn't require anything to do so other putting it on a port. I like the lupin vs vehicles but they're dinky, like a sd version of what they should be. But most of the mecha for the past few years look sd or chibi when they have simple transformation and the components are so shrunk, i think the last time we had vehicles that weren't shrunk was bouken? Then maybe go go v
>>17043925"Don't focus on Captain Kirk."
this episode was pure kinobtw, how many chapters will this season have?
>>17043925People seem to ignore that Kasumi was the real Sue of Ninninger. I didn't find Takaharu overwhelming at all.
>>17043854>they spend so much time developing Stinger when he's incredibly boring and his actor makes him boring as wellEpisode of Stinger was pretty good, but even then Stinger is just chemistry bait for Champ.
>>17043890It's surely made me appreciate the Lupin and Pats' simpler, less silly catchphrases.Also the Yakumo focus episodes were my favorite episodes from that whole series tbqh.
>>17043996So was Kirk the Red Ranger or the Gold Ranger or what?
>>17043890> they worked with his actor to work it outWhat was wrong with his actor?
>>17044821bad at actingalthough I'm pretty sure the person you're replying to is just pulling this out of their ass
>>17043996Captain Kirk was always a package deal with Spock the Logic and McCoy the ConscienceAn episode that was all Kirk would be shit
>>17044821I mean the fact that he was bad with acting so they worked around that by giving others much more screentime. Unless the way the show ended up was always planned to unfold how it did with the side characters getting more screentime than him. There's a very noticeable change with how they handle Takaharu after the Kakuranger/Hurricanger stuff and Raizou and eventually he does get better at acting somewhat.
>>17043854>It's not a show I would ever watch againDo people typically watch Super Sentai shows multiple times? It's 50 freaking episodes.
>>17045341We had people here rewatching things like Shinkenger and Megaranger on top of others going back to revisit Gokaiger after having seen more series, so yeah. /krg/ has people who rewatch stuff like Den-O, Kabuto, Kuuga, and OOO so I know it does happen. My point was that if you told me I had to sit and watch it again I just would refuse you outright. Stuff like Go-On, Gekiranger, Dairanger, Abaranger, Kakuranger, Sun Vulcan, Megaranger, ToQ, Go-Bus, and so on are all series I would gladly rewatch some time down the road as an example.
>>17045347I really couldn't imagine rewatching an entire toku season, but I'll go back to rewatch select episodes I liked though maybe. I've got kind of a inclination to go rewatch some Timeranger episodes, fucking loved that season so much.
>>17044051thisBeef Snake was the best
>people think Lucky is worse than TakaharuThat's not a very funny joke.
>>17045350Well, there are years with shitty sentai shows so it's not strange to rewatch old shows on those occasions
>>17045447Does it really matter? They're both terrible.
I think i figure out what going on from scan and this episode.To Retrieve Lupin Collection and Protect Noel from Ganglers.Kogure search people who have potential to be a KaitouAnd Then Hire Zamigo frozen Their loved one to force them become a Kaitou.He probably keep Their loved one inside the book (or imprison somewhere else) and will give them back to Kaitou after Retrieve all Collection
>>17045447At least Taka's team gave him shit all the time instead of sucking his dick
>>17045447I for sure think that Takaharu was a worse Red, but both of them had annoying catchphrases they wouldn't stop saying.
Christmas episode is so fucking lame. I'm not even a Muzzie.

Are we expecting Ryusouger leaks this week or next week?
>>17046444Probably tomorrow. The Bandai meeting takes place on the first Thursday of December.
>>17046444>>17046727At the very least, we should know by Saturaday JST.
>>17041526Even then Hasbro can just do an MMPR cartoon or a streaming service MMPR reboot and they'll be good. They don't need new shows they can reboot older ones and do just fine.

Isn’t there supposed a new mech combo or is VSX gonna be the only LupinPato combo?
So if LuPat gets in a future SRW, how would you salvage the series?
>>17047122That's the insane thing about LuPat's toyline that I was talking about in >>17041510. VSX is it. That's as strong and complex as the robots get, and we got it in episode 25. They've done a good job of keeping its appearances rare so that it always feels powerful when it shows up, but there's no enhanced version using the auxiliary vehicles, no robots that each team can use on their own, nothing.
>>17047297Have any Sentai gotten into a SRW recently? You'd think so, but you'd think it's more for straight mecha shows.
>>17047348https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icuh3DKsBOsZyuranger is in long ago. No actual plot but still a notable remark. Gavan is already in as a permanent series, with fully featured plot.
>>17047369Just daizyuzin? Is it a particularly popular SS mech?
>>17047369That was pretty cool. Wish more Sentai mechs got in SRW.
>>17047429No it’s popular because of MMPR.
>>17047429It was added because they were trying to sell the SoC Daizyujin, and the American Power Rangers movie was released close to that time.
>>17047486> and the American Power Rangers movie was released close to that time.Does anyone know what the Nipponese reception to that was? I'd imagine they liked it, I know they dig Marvel movies and it was kind of like a halfway house between MCU and PR

Ep Summaries (44-46)Episode 44:Title- Mitsuketa Shinjitsu (The Discovered Truth)Airs- 12/16/18The truth has come out- Noel, having given sensitive information to the Gangler, is chased by the Global Police. Kairi and co. begin to lose trust for Noel as well, seeing as how he manipulated things. Noel, on the other hand, tries to get back his credibility with the others. Meanwhile, Satoru seems to have tunnel vision when it comes to Noel, still convinced he is the Gangler spy, and his tactics to capture him put him at odds with Keiichiro.Episode 45:Title- Christmas wo Tanoshimini (Looking forward to Christmas)Airs- 12/23/18Sakuya is invited to a Christmas party at a local kindergarten. To please the kids there, he decides to bring chicken (a must-have at Christmas). During his shopping, a Gangler monster named "Saamon" appears, and begins turning chicken into salmon... -----LUPATO IS OFF ON 12/30 for the New Year's Holiday-----Episode 46:Title- Nigedasenai Game (Inescapable Game)Airs- 1/6/18No summary yet. Notes- Ep 45's title changed from the last group of summaries. Lupato will have at least 47 episodes; and more likely will finish at 50. Still waiting for confirmation on that.
>>17048031>Sakuya is invited to a Christmas party at a local kindergarten. To please the kids there, he decides to bring chicken>a Gangler monster named "Saamon" appears, and begins turning chicken into salmon... Is Christmas as a concept really that difficult for the Japanese to understand?
>>17048040In Japan eating fried chicken at Christmas is a tradition. So of course a monster that turns fried chicken into salmon must be stopped.
>>17048040for nips christmas is cake, chicken and presents
>>17048031I like how we go from important main story to the dreaded Salmon chicken monster like it's nothing.
>>17048031So, still no identity reveal? LvsP is just hilarious at this point.
>>17048182If there was an identity reveal, then the thieves would have to stop working at the bistro, and we can't have that.The cops will maybe, MAYBE find out in the second-to-last or last episode, if they even find out then.
>>17048156It's the classic Sentai christmas episode. Everything stops just for a second.
>>17048094Chicken and cake for christmas sounds cozy as fuck tbqh
yeah fried chicken is synonymous with Xmas over in moonlandreally not a bad ideamore than once I've been involved with planning irl Christmas stuff, the conversation turns into "lol Japan and fried chicken... hey wait yeah fried chicken sounds good and easy let's just do that"
>>17047864The movie bombed in Japan, oddly enough. It bombed in every country except for America, where it was only a modest success at best. It did better than the first Power Rangers movie did at the height of the phenomenon, so that's saying something.
>>17048185They still wear the mask in the v-cinema so the pats will literally never find out
Leaks of new team when? When will lupinshit vs patfaggers be over already so I can endlessly bitch about the next awful entry in this crap franchise like the loyal, goodhearted fan that I am?Also I wish death upon everyone involved in that show despite the fact that I spend money on toys of the very thing I hate like the pathetic addict that I am.
>>17048218Oh I know, I just find the transition of it pretty funny this year.
>>17048306New team is a ruse, that's why they are called ruse-o-ger. We are getting Patranger vs Lupinranger next year.
>>17048306Cranejoe is injured, currently wheelchair bound. Info is likely to be a lot slower this year without him.
>>17047864>and it was kind of like a halfway house between MCU and PRNah. It was more like a halfways between the last Fantastic Four Movie and PR. It felt like one of those old super hero movies that are ashamed of its super hero roots.Besides, Super movies traditionally have very low box office, and even the biggest box office (199 Heroes) wouldn't be considered good for Western blockbuster numbers.
>>17048380>Besides, Super moviesI meant "Super Sentai" there.
>>17048031Noel being a traitor is going to last two episodes because he is featured in the christmas episode.This is going to the most rush thing Lupat has done
>>17048380>It felt like one of those old super hero movies that are ashamed of its super hero roots.Sounds like an MCU movie to me senpai
I've done an awful job keeping up with the Lupat music this year. Does anyone have links of the soundtracks from this year they can share? Thanks!
So any scans of the new team yet
>>17048495If there was they'd be in this thread.
>>17048437check GokeiGreen in the archive
>>17048495If the scans were out, you'd know.
>>17048510>>17048514I don't regularly browse here but I suppose that's a fair enough point
>>17048520Just make up your own, it'll be as good or even better than what PLEX comes up with.
A look back in time at first glimpses
>>17048584Wow that Kyuranger leak
>>17048643Lucky is actually a famous Cryptid
>>17048711good news, even if it is kinda vague
>>17048437>>17048511Album isn't out yet until the 26th
>>17048306after whenever the toy meeting happens, which is likely to be today (JST)
>>17048711>https://twitter.com/MillionfoldMega/status/1070369283857936384Something else will come up or Shout will license it before they finish. Just give up already.
>>17048182Try watch most of Ultraman shows.
>>17048437Would be funny if Noel got 2 songs.
>>17049130not that guybut honestly the secret identity thing never really bothered me, i expected that they would take near the end of the show to revealpeople sure are idiots for thinking it would go any other way
>>17048584Huh, I remembered the first Zyuohger leak was the whole team, not just Shark.
>>17049142The rest got posted a couple hours later, iirc
>>17049142It was definitely shortly their after, i remember some one saying "That's just a photoshopped AbareYellow" and then like 10 or 20 minutes later the rest of the team dropped
>>17048302Pretty Much Lupin vs Pat vs Kyu take place before series end.pretty much Kogure behind Zamigo frozen Lupins loved ones.
>>17049202We don't know much, they not even show any villains yet. I still want the Zyuohger representation rumor to be true.
>>17048584Man, I remember when that ZyuohShark leak pic was posted all those years ago, along with that newsletter kinda thing that had all the actors on it before they were officially announced anywhere. Good times.
No new sentai tonight. Sleep yall
Kyuranger seems to have had a good amount of collectibles? How well did the series do?
>>17049603Domestic toy sales in last four yearsToQger - 12.2 Billion YenNinninger - 7.9 Billion YenZyuohger - 8 Billion YenKyuranger - 9.3 Billion Yen
Do you like ani/m/al heads as hands?
>>17049608I guess ToQger did well enough because kids just like trains, plus all the train otaku as well got on it.
>>17049616Kinda lukewarm on them. I like the ones that are more like actual weapons then just open mouthed animal heads.
Catalog meeting happened tonight. Currently not much news or information but we should be getting leaks over the next few days.
>>17049884Now we play the waiting game.
Kinda depressing how fucking dead /ssg/ is now. Tonight used to be one of the most hyped nights of the year, I have so many good memories of staying up all night waiting for news of the next season. But the lack of hype is almost painful. Not unwarranted, but it’s just so sad to have such a dry leak and rumors season. I hope this show reignites some excitement in Sentai, because this just sucks.
Kyuranger was a blessing.
Kyuranger was a curse.
>>17049899Just cause people aren't posting constantly at the minute doesn't mean people aren't hyped. Hold your horses and just wait for the toy catalog/meeting leaks.
>>17049899It's not always Wednesday night, though.
Rumor has it the LuPat Movie raw is floating around. Anyone come across it? I checked the usual suspects already.
>>17050149it's been on nyaa for a couple days
>>17050152Like usual I expect TV-N to be on that shit pretty soon like they are with everything O-T doesn't want to do right away.
>>17049899We're probably not even going to see the scans for a couple days mate. Hold your horses.
>>17049616Gao did it right.
>>17048751I hope you can share it with us boi
Wake me up when this show is over. Patren #1 never got his upgrade. This is supposed to be a two-Sentai season, not Lupinranger.
>>17050458While it is a shame pretty much all of the Patrangers' big upgrades got ironically stolen by the Lupinrangers because their toys were selling more, we just have to deal with it. It's the home stretch now that Destra has been killed. Also you have Ryusouger leaks to look forward to as well.
It's that time of the year again.
>>17050499Ah yes, the "suit leaker" who's always wrong. His guess for the Kyuranger suit was so off it's ridiculous.
>>17050504I prefer this "cute robo sketch based on vague description" but I think it stopped around ToQ, I think?
>>17050513Have they made anymore pictures lately?
Someone claims to have seen the catalog and said the retailers will get copies sent via registered mail in one week. Here is what they claim to remember:Ryuusou Changer RyuusoukenRed is a T-RexBlue is TriceratopsPink is AnkilosaurusGreen is Sabertooth TigerHe couldn't see what black wasRobot is called KishiryuuOhSide arms are swords based on fangs.Enemies are the Time Travelling Hayami Empire.
>>17050539Ehh, not enough source for my tastes. I'm not gonna take baseless rumors of "oh yeah this guy saw the catalog that isn't anywhere online yet and it was this."
>>17050539>Sabertoothffs Toei that's not a dinosaur- WAIT NO WHAT HAPPENED TO MY DRAGONS
>>17050539This is not the dragon knight I was promised.
>>17050539>Time TravellingTHIS TOO IS ZI OS FAULT WHICH IS ALSO DECADES FAULT
>>17050545>>17050556not him but iirc there is some sort of stupid pun built into the name and is causing people to suspect dinosaurs since Japan loves dinosaurs and puns.
>>17050539>Time TravellingYes, lets copy Kamen Rider.
>>17050513IIRC he got up to Shurikenjin.
>>17050580Kamen Rider already copied Ultraman with Build, might as well keep it going.
>>17050581I vaguely remember that artist doing Shurikenjin as well
>>17050580>kamen rider invented time traveling
>>17050590>Doing it the same year as Kamen Rider isn't copying it
>>17050586I wish Kamen Rider did a season where they merged riders together.
>>17050586>>17050593Yeah I remember Shirakura joked about Rider copying Ultraman Geed when they introduced the full bottles.
>>17050539Damn this green tiger rumor is everywhere
>>17050499The horrible deviantart templates again? Nice.
>>17050539Sounds like a boring Kyoryu retread. Really hope this is fake.

>>17050576It's the fact that Bakuryu Sentai had "ryu" in the title, but was about dinosaurs.
>>17050674>Ryu Soul SetsI smell a collectible gimmick.
>>17050716Ryusouger Strongest Ryusou Set DX Ryusou Ken & Ryusou ChangerKishiryu Series 01 & 02 & 03Kishiryu Gattai DX Kishiryu Oh Three Knights Set
>>17050725so they are still going to keep the knight themeplease make them keep the knight themei don't care if it has dinosaurs as long as they keep the knight theme
>>17050674>Sword and BuckleSo like, a knight's sword and shield? That would be neat.
>>17050763Oh shit.The leaker said the show was starting in March. And it's probably dinosaurs with likely one female.

>>17050730They kind of have to. The "Kishi" in Kishiryu is literally, specifically knights.
Was Kasumi one of the only good things about Ninninger?
>>17050787Well she was one of the only members that had a brain a majority of the time.
>>17050794Queen-Vegeta69. More people should check her stuff she is a pretty good artist even when not drawing Sentai milkies.
>>17050771We're getting a Captain Marvelous mini series after all.
>>17050708>>17050716Kyoryuuger colors. Cool.
>>17050674so t-rex, triceratops, ankylosaurus, saber-tooth tiger and whatever 05 is?
>>17050830Sounds like Bandai's playing it safe next year. Lame, but understandable.
>>17050708what the fuck is a mirunidoru lol
>It's fucking animal/reptile/mammal/digiornosaur/amphibious/mythology theme sentai again Whew
>>17050835Some kind of stegosaur, I think.
>>170508305 is whatever Mirunidoru, Millenidol, and Milneedle could be related too
>How do we save Sentai?>Why don't we do what the round-eyes do and ape Zyuranger? Worked for Saban.>...Promote this man.
>>17050818I'm cool with this. I wonder how they'll do it.And the makeup being almost exactly Kyoryuger says how much they need a show to do well here.
Hey, what if for next year's Sentai, instead of doing 5 members or 3 members, they just make team 1 member. That way, they can give all the power ups to one guy, and they don't have to pretend the other characters matter. It would sell like hot-cakes.
>>17050909So Kamen Rider ?
Dino theme with the same colors as Kyoryu? Get ready for another King.
It's honestly looking like a mix of Kyoryuger and ZyurangerZyuranger: The theme of knights, princesses and fairy talesKyoryuger: The colors and the mecha
>kyoryu but with the vague knight theming cribbed from zyuI sleep.
>>17050910No no no no no. Totally different. KR doesn't have giant combining robots, team cannons, or good fight choreography.
All the Reds get into a fight. Just their skills and their main weapon of choice, no additional power-ups. Who wins? Or at least, who are the last few standing and who are the first few to go down?
>>17051001Winner: probably any one of the military guys, so AkaRanger, ChangeDragon, OhRed, TyrannoRanger maybe.
>>17051001King, because he lacks weakness.
>>17051001Lucky, because a rogue meteor storm will defeat every other red. Talk about lucky!
>>17051068I still don't get it.
>>17050674I remember LuPat got a fake toylist with more unique individual mech names, Arsene Jet or something, right before the real ones showed up.
>>17050651In the alternate universe, they're the real design.
>>17051243Whoops forgot image
>Dinousaurs>MarchSo it's the end for sentai just like the leaker said. Only one year left for /ssg/
>>17051260m-maybe it will be successful
>>17051260It ends if the toys tanks
>>17051098In Kyoryu Gray's debut he puts the Kyoryugers in a series of tests. Everyone fails, except King. Then he says that he shoudn't be a Kyoryuger because he lacks any weakness.
Stop doomsting, better post your favourite insertshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpYIgNvon-I
If Ryuusouger bombs will they just end it there or make one final going-away season for 2020?
>>17051318probably one of my favorite sixth ranger themehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39xDB6Kto2g
>>17051329They'll just end it. No point in doing a going-away season when it's five years of failure at that point. Plus, a going-away after recent sales sends the message that the shows have failed, no company would do that.
>>17051337I can't imagine they won't have a series during the Olympic year
>>17050716hold up, didn't the leak guy say it would have a white ranger?
>>17051367He said he wasn't sure cause he hadn't seen it yet, but everything else is spot on so far.
So does that mean we have 3 more months of Lupin vs. Pat?
>>17051329Their last anniversary season was Zyuoger which failed to get any boost from that. And they probably won't do a Gokaiger-like anniversary again anytime soon because they might fear it wouldn't compare favorably to it.
>>17051390December, January, and to mid February. Leaker gave March 17th as a rough start date for Ryuusouger.
>>17051390We have the Captain Marvelous mini series coming up
>>17051407>march 17that would make lupat tied for the second longest series with Changeman at 55 episodes
>>17051393I can see them doing anniversary-themed season in 2021. Heisei Rider did it twice.
>>17051437Maybe Lupat has been playing the long con all along then? Maybe it still has time to recover for a decent ending?Maybe i'm being to optimisitc?
>>17051437The leaker that gave us LuPat vsKyu and the dinosaur theme for Ryusouger also said that a Captain Marvelous Miniseries was gonna air after LuPat to push the start of Ryusouger to March. So 50 episodes is more likely than 55
>>17051444If the Marvelous mini series turns out to be real I'm gonna get real nervous about all that cancellation talk.
>>17051449Sentai is only going to get canceled if the toys fails. Toei and Bandai would have to be really dumb to make the toys undesirable
>>17051451You mean like they have been doing?
>>17051451>Toei and Bandai would have to be really dumb to make the toys undesirableLiterally the last four years have failed to meet sales projections and we're in currently the least profitable Sentai toy line ever. It's happening.
>>17051451The toys for the past few years (LuPat in particular) has been absolutely abysmal.
>>17051442Toy sales and story quality don't really impact each other at this point. The toys are already bombing hard, the story could be the greatest thing ever and it'd still be seen as a failure.
>>17051474I like the changers from LuPat, but the robos have been less than stellar. ToQger is the only Sentai from the past seven or so years that I feel has both good changers, good weapons and good robo toys.
https://mobile.twitter.com/sunny111989871/status/1070655748722483200The Bandai wholesaler meeting surely happened by this point.
>>17050674>March release date So either LuPat will have 50+ episodes or the Captain Marvelous mini-series rumor is true.
So the only way for Sentai to have good toy sales is if the gimmick had the same freedom and flexibility as recent Rider seasons?
>>17051728Or to just have something collectable like Rider always has these days. Now Ryusouger is gonna have these Ryu Souls as their collectable, whatever they'll do.
>>17051735Ninninger did collection based lines and still failed. I think this sent Bandai into a panic.
>>17051737Eh, barely. The Ninshurikens weren't on the level of Beast Batteries, Kyutama or Ranger Keys.
Lupin Red confirmed.
>>17051728>>17051735The weird thing is it seems Sentai only allowed to have collectibles separated from mech only in the odd year seasons since Gokaiger.
Bring on the Dino dragon knight mecha, another red standalone mech that has its own humanoid form, good shit. Do the armor gattai right this time plex
Fucking lupin red.
>>17051956We're getting battleship dinos not dino dragons
>>17051792>>17052005I hate to admit it, but I'm definitely having Lupin Red spirit battles with a friend.
>>17052014Joker is actually a decent character unlike Kuckrii
>>17050779You think Kamen Rider's 'Rider' characters really read as rider?
>>17052140... Yes? Because its written in katakana.. It's quite literally read as "Rider".
What if it's Dark Souls but sentai? Like Garo but dragons?
>>17052224I still waiting for a proper warrior Sentai, like a mix of Shinkenger and BFJ but with warriors from all over the world.
I hurt myself today
What if we took the arm swap gimmick that makes our toys bad and made it even worse and more excluding
You can copy my homework but change some things so the teacher doens't figure it out
I guess it looks good though.
>arm swap mecha againMaybe Sentai should take a break after all.
>>17052280>>17052282I don't like the toys, but the suits are nice. >>17052290It's a busou gimmick, not arm swapping.
>>17052280>>17052282>>17052284>>17052286>Indonesian local toy store leaking new Sentai this year Holy shit maybe I should applied there
>Five straight years of bad robo toysFUCKINGWHY
wow, leak was right
Cut my rice into piecesThis is my last resortDINOSAURSARM SWAPPINGVERY POPULAR WITH THE KIDS
>>17052304>Kaisers and Shurikenjin >bad
How do you want your designs senpai? Just Chinese ripoff my shit up.
look, we have a collectible this year! p-please buy
>>17051260Wait, what happen?? what's with all of these march and end of sentai stuff??Someone redpill me on this pls..
>>17052330Sentai's ratings and sells have been suffering massively.Bandai/Toei are giving Sentai a last chance with Dinosaurs in order to try and salvage the franchise.
>breaking the 10 year pattern just to keep the franchise aliveIt would be sad if this season actually flops. >>17052330Leaker who was correct about Cross-Z Trailer said if Ryusouger doesn't make Kyoryu numbers or better then Sentai is canceled.They're also bringing back Captain Marvelous to gain interest for the show.
>>17052304What are you talking about? Kishiryuoh's toy actually looks good, so the suit will look even better.>>17052320>Kaisers>GoodYou're the one who doesn't belong here.>>17052326>RangerKeys, but worse
>>17052330Some ESL was here talking about how Ryu would start in March and if its ratings, both toy and television, are bad, then Sentai is going on a nice trip to see the Metal Heroes.
>>17052335>It would be sad if this season actually flops.Hey they should actually try something different and stop having annoying fucking Reds for once.
>>17052339It feels like it has been about five years since Yamato already.
>>17052280>>17052282WTF? These designs are kinda good.
>>17052332Oh wow, that sad.. I hope /ssg/ can survive from all of this.Im glad that i already moved to Ultraman series since Goseiger. So this news didn't really make me sad.
>>17052330Someone posted on /krg/ and /ssg/ with leaked pictures of the Cross-Z movie trailer and also its debut time. Later also posted some shots of the Kyuranger vs Lupin vs Pat movie before the official upload too.Alongside those images, he claimed that Sentai might end if the next series doesn't perform well. Also, it'd have a dinosaur and battleship theme, rather than dragons like everyone expected.He also said it'd be beginning in March and there will be a Captain Marvelous mini-series between Lupin vs Pat and the next show.For Rider, his info wasn't very intereting though, but it always sounded believable unlike the Sentai stuff, which at first seemed really out there. Tsukasa's actor will be in the movie; no Odagiri (who apparently disliked the movie's script and called it trash). Zi-O is also getting three movies, which indicates it will have a spring movie even though Shirakura claimed last year that they had ended and the timing of Amazons' movie was just a coincidence, it didn't count.
Patfags, how does it feel to get cucked even in Smash?
I want an adult Sentai. Sorta like KR Amazons. Make it actually about the military creating weapons to fight monsters, give it that 90s Jetman feel. Have the cast experience loss and tragic backstories.
>>17052335>Kyoryu numbers Not Kyoryu, Toqger
>>17052353FINE ENJOY THE DEATH OF YOUR FRANCHISE
Just do a bug sentai already.
>>17052280We have a new solo red robot. I'm satisfied.
>>17052280>>17052282>no one commenting on the ranger designs
>>17052350The adult Sentai fanbase barely buys anything which is why you don't get a big push in that direction.
>>17052335>>17052347I don't see any battleships.
>>17052366Just make it kakkoii like the Avengers.
>>17052280So I guess that robot is why the leaker said it was battleship/Dinosaur theme, with those arm parts. It seems like the battleship stuff is just for those accessories though and not an actual theme for the season.
>>17052332>>17052335>>17052337>>17052347I know it may sound too much.. But can someone give me the screenschot of that leak anon post?? or give me a link to the original thread where the leak anon post his stuff??
>yfw Sentai goes the Gridman route
>>17052371Gridman anime is supposedly a project for 25th Gridman's Anniversary.
It was a good run but wasn't there another Toku project in the works? Something new?
>>17052280>>17052282I like the main robot, and it actually has a somewhat interesting gimmick. You can take the other 4 mecha and use them as armor for Kishiryu Oh, mixing and matching any pieces you like on the six attach points. As long as they the expected 3 more center piece robots and enough more armor mecha, then this is pretty cool.>>17052284>>17052286Colors are a Kyoryu retread which is shitty. The suits are pretty cool actually, but the helmets are a fucking mess. >>17052325The Changer literally just looks like an updated version of the Bakuryu Changer. Sword is whatever mostly, but it have a dino skull, I guess.>>17052326Ryu Souls look kinda eh, but I don't know what kids like these days. Obligatory buckle.
>red, blue, green, white, black >two girls three menyeah it's fake.
>>17052377It was just Shirakura spewing shit. Don't expect anything until we have details.
>>17052381>I will call it fake without reading all his post
>>17052381He corrected himself about that in the next post though when he posted on /ssg/
>tfw no yellow
>>17052284>>17052286Those are the worst possible knight themed helmets they could've designed. The silver arm part is nifty, though.
>>17052381Read his another post, retard
>>17052371Thighs and tits?
