Power Rangers: The New Star Trek (via That Media Girl)

An interesting analysis to say the least. As a big fan of both, I can’t help but to go into uber-nerd mode over this article.

Power Rangers: The New Star Trek What better way to kick off my Power Rangers series than with an analysis of the series as a whole? I'll explain the Star Trek in a little bit. For a little back story, Power Rangers is an American series that utilized stock footage of zord battles and the heroes in costume from Japan's Super Sentai series, the first being Might Morphin' Power Rangers that utilized both the Zyuranger series in the beginning and Dairanger and Kakuranger in the lat … Read More

Like the Nylock quiz, only this time your matched with a ranger! And guess what? I’m the red ranger! (According to the quiz) I think it should still count though.

Female(?!) Red Samurai Ranger: Saw this one coming a mile away…

Well, now that the Gold Samurai Ranger has debutted, everyone is all abuzz about the the debut of the Female Red Samurai Ranger. Which, for those of us who watched Shinkenger, it’s not that big a shock.

The big news here is that people think they’ve figured out who has been cast as the female Red Ranger, but just remember that this is rumor and speculation, so I wouldn’t freak out yet if I was you, at least not until anything can be confirmed.

This is New Zealand-born actress Kimberly Crossman, the person currently rumored to be playing the role of the Female Red Ranger, whose name is suppose to be something like Meghan or Lauren. I’m not sure about the name, but I do remeber form the Breakdown (casting call) that her character was going to be refered to as the Princess. Excellent work with that translation, #TV-Nihon. Anyway, the reason everyone suspects that she’s going to play the role is because she’s been tweeting about Samurai fighting, and skills and training, as part of an acting role she’s been picked for. But that’s not the only reason.

Before their roles on the show were confirmed, both Paul Shrier and Rick Medina hinted on their Facebook pages about being part of PRS, and it is possible that she could be doing the same with Twitter (By the way, you can follow me on Twitter, just look for @henshinhead). And Hector David Jr. (Mike/Green Samurai Ranger) tweeted that filming for the series is still on-going, while the suit-actor Namiehi Koshinge posted on his blog that they already finished filming for the last episode of Power Rangers.

With this news, and conflicting reports about filming, people have speculated two things: 1) That Kimberly Crossman will be  playing the role of the Female Red Samurai Ranger, and that she might appear much sooner than expected, and 2) That Power Rangers Samurai might try to pull a Zeo or a Zyu2 and just take the current cast and carry them over into the Goseiger adaption. I’m not sure about all of that, but I think that it’s finally sinking into Nickelodeon just how successful this show could be again. We all know it, but the tv execs at Nick are a little slow, so we’ll just give them time to figure it out. Especially if they figure out to put the merchandise into more than one freakin’ store!

Kamen Rider OOO Summer Movie Update: Oh, Gara is a woman. My bad.

Now that we finally have a title for the movie, and know a bit more about BuraKaWani Combo, we’re getting a bit more detailed version of the plot.

The movie starts off with Kougami and Satonaka headed off for Germany. Gara (played by Sakai Miki), the alchemist who created the Core Medals, is lying dormat deep within a German forest. Legend has it that Gara has the “Lost Medals” with her, so naturally Kougami has to go over to Germany to find and revive her.

During this ceremony meant to revive Gara, the room suddenly fills with a mysterious melody, and the lid to Gara’s tomb flies off, and hundreds of medals come flying out. As they enter the forest, suddenly 200-300 meters of the forest changes into Shinjuku!

Mean while back in Japan, Shinjuku district is slowly being replaced by the German forest, and everyone is in a panic. Medals start slithering out of the forest like snakes, and come together to for a medieval tower in the middle of the displaced forest. Knights start pouring out of the tower and Gara finally reveals herself.

Okay. before I go any further, I jsut have to say this: Gara is dressed like a Super Sentai villianess. Seriously, I’m halfway expecting her to send the Putty Patrol after OOO. Yes, Gara is the one on the left. We’ll get to the one on the right in a second, so just hold your horses.

When Gara shows up, she proclaims that she will take back all of the Core Medals, and that she will destroy this world and build a new one for her to rule over. She manages to even take the Taka Core, leaving Eiji unable to henshin. She also sends out one of her familiars, Bell (played by Agino Karin) to go around town and ask people strange questions. Not sure how that’s part of the plan, but it is.

Seeing Shinjuku change into a forest, Eiji, Hina and Ankh rush in, only to find themselves in Edo! And somehow they’ve all gotten separated from each other. Gara creates the Nue Yummy and sends it after Eiji, but with no way to henshin and no back-up, how will Eiji survive?! What happened to Ankh and Hina? And where are the other Greeed and Dr. Maki in all of this? The countdown to the End has begun!

And what happened to Lost Ankh, and how did Uva come back?

There are too many questions!!!
