Super Sentai has higher quality of writing, characterization, believable performances by the casts, and a bigger budget. Not to mention a better handle on what entertaining action looks like. The music is great as well as the action. But some people, however, choose Super Sentai for these reasons:
- It's original
- It's Japanese
- It's has more violence compared to Power Rangers
- It has more class
- It's considered art compared to Sentai
- Sentai is childish and overrated
But me, I prefer Power Rangers over Super Sentai. I can't really explain it well, but I just think Power Rangers is better than Sentai, The stories are told good (MMPR-In Space to be specific). And the music, like I said before, is just epic. Power Rangers is my childhood. It's the thing I "grew up" with. It's the thing that has stayed with me since it first began, and from that point on it's been a fairly large part of my life. It was a different kind of show.
As good as Super Sentai is in many ways, there's just no way it could replace the chunk of my nerdly heart that is already occupied by Power Rangers. And no matter how cheap, or phony, or downright ridiculous Power Rangers gets, it's always going to be THE show for me. Even knowing there are other shows that are technically so much better.
And to set the record straight, I do like Super Sentai as well...I just don't really like the newer series. Anyone else able to enjoy both, and if so what would you say makes them good in their own separate way?
