My final set of behind-the-scenes photos from the first season of Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger, taken from the Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger Live Tour Final – Great Expedition to Nakano special! First four behind-the-scenes sets are here, here, here, and here.
The first season of Akibaranger was a great ride, featuring some fun twisting of Super Sentai tropes and exaggerated views into its fandom. Even without the liner notes that are out there for it, I think it basically works as a stand-alone series, although obviously your mileage is going to vary depending on your tolerance for the genre. It has some genuinely dramatic, heart-felt moments going for it going for it, though, so it’s not all comedy karate spandex superheroes all the time (if that would be an issue for you).
Now, Akibaranger Season Tsuu/Two… uh, my feelings on Season Two are Complicated. I’ll leave it at that for now. I do have behind-the-scenes photos from Season Two as well (from its own Live Tour special), but I’m going to wait a while before posting them. Don’t want to over-saturate my brand identity. You know how it is.
