The Lesson: Take care of your sentai toys and they’ll protect the world.


As you can probably tell by many of the recent drawings posted here, I’ve been getting back in super sentai (I was huge into it in the 90’s/early 00’s). While I’m mostly into the older shows like from the 80’s and 90’s (something about that grainy low-grade film and models for transformation scenes is something I feel has kinda been lost on the modern ones). Anyway, I decided to watch the recent crossover movie (those tend to be really fun since they like to show off more action than the usual offerings).  This one was Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Grand Battle. It was unexpectedly awesome. Pretty much EVERY ranger was shown plus every of each sentai’s main robot.

But what really got to me was two scenes where original Popy (Bandai’s subsidiary back in the 70’s to early 80’s) diecast toys of Daidenjin (Denjiman’s main robot) and Variburoon (Goranger’s weird dog/cat vehicle. They didn’t have an actual robot). I just liked the special message of taking care of your toys and they’ll protect the world someday. I found that sweet (and hilarious of course due to the blatant commercialism theme).

I recommend this if you want to get into sentai or were a lapsed fan and want to see what the modern sentai offerings are.
