Saban's New Season, and using Goseiger
Well, I gotta say. Like everyone else, I was shocked to find out that Saban had taken back Power Rangers from Disney. I admit, I did feel a bit shaken about this, as I wasn't sure if this was a good thing or not. But after some thinking, I think I can safely say that this is indeed a great thing!
It is said that Saban took back Power Rangers, because he was disgusted with what Disney had done to Power Rangers. Particularly MMPR v2. Can't blame him, as his own work was being messed with and was being claimed as being a whole new show. But anyway, I must say, anything that can defeat Disney like that definitely deserves praise. And if Saban took back Power Rangers for those reasons, then that must mean that he truly does care about Power Rangers, and will try his best to make it a good show. So it's definitely much easier to look forward to the next season, rather than looking forward to check out the next "Sentai adaptation failure by Disney/Kalish."
I think Power Rangers can help Tokusatsu in many ways, if it stays good. For many, Power Rangers was the gateway to Sentai. Thus, the gateway to all of Toku. If Power Rangers has a good image, then things will get better for this genre.
To answer DancingAlienDude's question, I think Goseiger can be adapted into a fine Power Rangers season. Just as much as Shinkenger. I think the fact that Go-onger was adapted under Disney, into the awesome RPM shows that anything is possible. If Goseiger get's adapted, we'll most likely be getting those Dice-O cards imported over here. But will we get the Dice-O video game? I sure hope so! It looks like so much fun!
I also had this crazy idea that because it's Saban, why not try adapting both Shinkenger and Goseiger and turn them into a single show? Kind of like how he did it with MMPR. Just a thought for possible originality.
I would also like Saban to bring back team-ups. That's definitely one major element that Disney had lacking. Plus, I would really like it if Saban paid homage to Sentai, kind of like how Dino Thunder did it, but better. Heck, I would absolutely love it if both Power Rangers and Sentai did a team up! It would definitely help Toku out a lot! And I can definitely see this as a possibility more so than Power Rangers being under the hands of Disney.
Just thought but... I wonder which Sentai is Saban's favorite? That's another thing. I'd like some interviews done for once!
