Cause there was some posts asking for this and to give Whippy a break, I thought I'd open this up here so we can chat about Power Rangers and their Sentai counterparts in Japan. This show's another example on how the right amount of tweaking and reimaging on a property can make kids, adults and the people who own these shows happy for years beyond it's estimated shelf-life. Oh, and Kantankeris? This picture you put up in the Turtles-thread?

Looks like they liked the idea a lot. They went ahead and did it in Japan and later here in the S.P.D. series with the S.W.A.T. Megazord. :)

    Jason was pretty kickass, but Luke came and made Jason look like a queer.

    I'm pretty sure he was Vash- I remember hearing his voice in a game my friend was playing (Tales Of Something Or Other) and looking it up on IMDB.

    johnny yong bosch is a voice actor

    the show you're talking about is more than likely trigun, where he voiced vash

    He had pretty much the most awesome fight in a Power Ranger series ever, and that was in Dino Thunder.

    He....

    He's a teacher at the school where the rangers are.

    The principle is a bad guy(lady).

    Near the end of the series, he fight's the principle.

    In street clothes.

    With all the students watching.

    Seeing a kinda normal looking teacher kungfu fighting a normal looking principle was fucking GLORIOUS.

    "Dude jump-kicked a Tyrannosaurus Rex right in his fucking face. What the hell? That is some hardcore shit, man. That makes Tommy the best ranger ever. Whenever anyone says someone else is the greatest ranger, you ask them, "Did they kick a dinosaur in the face?" When they say no, you say, "QEF'nD, bitch."

    I think the green ranger arc was probably my favorite storyline in the series. But I also didn't watch it that often.

    The only thing that sucked about Tommy's involvment in Dino Thunder is when his actor disappeared in the middle of the season and they had to write in that Tommy was 'stuck' in Ranger mode and couldn't power down. Otherwise, it was pretty good. That Dino Thunder series was great overall. I loved it how for one episode, they had the three main Rangers watch an episode of the Sentai series it was based on, Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger.

    EDIT: Here you go. They did a Wiki-entry on that episode alone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_and_Found_in_Translation
