Way better than it's American counterpart
16 March 2007 | by EmphinixSee all my reviews

I remember my days as a kid watching the Power Rangers, but when I saw this show last year, I discovered that it was much better than it's American adaptation and it also has a much darker tone than that.

Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuranger is a famous "Super Sentai" series which came to the air in 1992. It grew immensely popular in Japan until it had it's American adaptation in 1993 and they were known as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers which the battle scenes featured footage from the Japanese series.

If some people who still watch the Power Rangers come and ask me. Which I would chose, I would answer them that I would choose the "Super Sentai" any day.

The differences between this show and the American version are these The zords are colossal robots controlled by the Power Rangers. In Zyurangers, the dinosaurs are gods from the respective tribes of the heroes.

The legendary Tommy Oliver loses the powers of the Green Ranger while his counterpart Burai, dies from the green candle.

In most Sentai series, Yellow Rangers are mostly male while in the Power Rangers most of the Yellow Rangers were female. Boi is Tigerranger, while here in the US, Trini Kwang played by the late Thuy Trang is the Yellow Ranger.

I loved this show and I give this a 10 out of 10
