Top 10 sentai suits design.

This one is one I’ve been thinking about for a while since I got it in my inbox. There are a lot of possible answers to this but I wanted to hold off until I caught up on some others and give it a bit of thought. Now that I’ve had the time, here we go!

10. Ryu Commander from Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger

This is going to be the most recent entry on the list and places this low because of that.  That said, I love this look.  I have always been a sucker for the long coat look on tokusatsu heroes going back to at least Shinken Red’s Super Mode and Kamen Rider Wizard, both designs I adore.

When you add violet, which is my favorite recent edition color, to the mix, you have a suit that REALLY hits my sweet spots for awesomeness. Plus, you make it dragon-themed and that just pushes it over the line to being one of the ten best ever.

9. Dragon Ranger from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger

Sticking with Dragons and extra Rangers for a moment I can’t let Burai’s hero outfit go by without adding it to the list.  He started the trend of taking the look of the original heroic suits and adding to them (in his case the chest protector and added gold bands) to the design to make the sixth hero’s outfit something really special. His is also just a great take on the general Zyuranger costume theme and his shade of green is particularly appealing to the eyes, vibrant and rich but not pastel or too dark.

8. Starninger from Shuriken Sentai Ninninger

I am not the biggest fan of the series Shuriken Sentai Ninninger but I am a fan of Starninger, especially his ridiculous outfit.  This may be because I live in Texas and am an American and Starninger’s cowboy rock star outfit is exactly what I expect the rest of the world to think of when they come up with a Texan hero.  Built in cowboy hat?  Check!  Lone Star faceplate? Check! Faux fringe on the faux poncho?  Check and check!  I also love the balance between gold, blue black and red with the gold being primary and everything else used as accent.  It’s a great look and I can’t help but love it!

7. Heart Queen from J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai

One design element of Sentai costumes I don’t think gets used enough are capes.  I love them but more about that later.  Of call the old-school pink heroines, I think Heart Queen has the best costume.  I love the sash across the shoulder to the hip that meets up with her belt, I love the yellow cape that gives a nice color contrast with the rest of her costume, I love the heart-emblem faceplate on the helmet and I really love the four colored triangles on the shoulder.  Each one represents a member of the team and functions as an anchor point for the cape.  Love that design element and I love designs that run diagonally across like that sash/utility harness.

6. Kyoryu Violet 2 from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger

Two of my personal favorite design elements come into play here, the across the chest diagonal design and the color violet.  I really like the Kyoryuger costume designs and somehow, I like the new ones from the South Korean/Japanese co-production Power Rangers Dino Force Brave/Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger Brave even more with their addition of white accents for the helmets and areas on the uniforms.  However, none of those are violet so I ruled them out. This is a nice design and I really like the helmet with the dinosaur teeth and raised areas for eyes plus the little fins on the lower side to suggest the flippers of a plesiosaur.  That little armored shoulder bit suggesting a dinosaur eye just completes the look

5. Vul Eagle from Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan

If you can’t have a cape, I saw go with a scarf.  Yes, it’s more well known as a Kamen Rider costume flourish but I think it works for Sentai as well. Vul Eagle makes this list because I love how simple and iconic his costume is. The white and red color balance is great.  His yellow sun disc stands out on his chest and looks great.  But what really does it for me is his helmet.  The design might be kind of simple but I love the look of it with the huge golden eagle in the front and the yellow accents around the visor suggesting wings.  It’s a really great look.

4. Dekared from Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger

This is another costume I like for the helmet design. That’s not the only reason but it’s one of the first.  I like the police lights on the side of the helmet, I like the way the visor narrows in the middle and sweeps up dramatically to the back.  The visor shape reminds me of the headlights on a Nissan 350Z (which came out about the same time). The other thing I really like about this costume is the way the number designation is done with it being integrated into the left side of the costume and leaving one arm red and the other arm black,  I have a thing for asymmetric costume designs and this one is just fantastic.

3. Gokai Green from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger

I really, really like the outfits from Gokaiger.  They pirate theme mixed with a Sentai costume really works with the flared boots, hat-like helmets, high collars and colored coat over a black undersuit just creates a unique look that I really, really think is one of the best designs in the last 10 years. So, why Gokai Green?  I like Green. It’s a good color when done right and Doc’s heroic costume is just the right shade of green to strike my fancy.

2. Akaranger from Himitsu Sentai Goranger

This may seem a pretty easy choice and it was for two reasons. 1) It’s the original Red Hero outfit and set the standard for what Sentai heroes look like. 2) It has my favorite design element of all time for a Sentai costume, that short cape. I love the way capes of that length move in battle and how easy they are to flourish dramatically without having them get in the way or drag like a long cape would. I also just love his thigh holster and high collar.  It’s a classy look that’s really passed the test of time.

1. MagiRed from Mahou Sentai Magiranger

Once more with the capes!  I love capes on Sentai outfits as I just said and I think the capes on the Magiranger outfits are just perfect.  I’m going to go with their original, non-powered up forms because I just think the outfits are better before the added on bits and changes.  The lines are clean and sleek, the material is nicer than the simple cloth used on Akaranger above and the helmet design works much better for me.  In short, good costume design is Magic!

HALLOWEEN SPECIAL! VAMPIRES IN SUPER SENTAI!

Being a rather universally known monster, vampires have been antagonists (or at least monsters of the week) in several of the Super Sentai shows over the years.  Here are just a sampling of them!

1. Dracula is brought back (along with other evil, dead historical figures) by the villains in an episode of Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan.

2. In episode 8 of Dengeki Sentai Changeman, an evil vampiric monster is turning the people of Tokyo into vampires and they can only be cured when the monster is defeated.

3. Bandora’s henchman, Totpat, is at least part vampire, though he admits he has never tasted blood in Kyoryu Sentai ZyuRanger.

4 & 5. The twin vampires Nai and Mea combine to form the evil vampire Queen Vancuria in Mahou Sentai MagiRanger.

6. Most recently, Dracula returned as a visiting Western Yokai in search of the taste of Japanese beauties in Shuriken Sentai NinNinger.

I’m not sure if I’m the first person to notice this on Tumblr, or just the first person to blog about it. Either way, this is pretty interesting.

During the credits of Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle, every Super Sentai team that preceded the Gokaigers flashes on the screen briefly during the credits. Today, after watching the movie for about the 50th time, I noticed during the credits that Big One had a skirt on the uniform when JAKQ came up on screen. I paused it, went back, replayed to that part, and paused again. There it was - white skirt, plain as day, the same way that the uniform is when Luka transforms into Big One!

I then, of course, went through the entire credits, and what do you know - every Sentai team’s uniforms have had their gender assignments changed to match what their member would be in Gokaiger. Some of the teams only have one change, mostly for the Yellow Rangers (although Go-Onger has Go-On Black in a skirt, which is my personal favorite). Some other teams have more than half of the Rangers in gender-changed uniforms, most noticeably Liveman and Hurricaneger.

I’m not sure what the point of this was for the directors, but I personally think it’s awesome to see these alternate versions of the Sentai teams doing their epic poses. Also, sorry if the subtitles seem a bit off - I had a hard time pausing the film at the exact right moment to get all of these screencaps!

anonymous asked:

I saw your post about your favorite monster motif and I was wondering what other monster motif do you like?

I am a total sucker (no pun intended) for vampires and bats.  

I love that entire concept and look.  Heck, I run another blog here on tumblr that’s more than half vampire content, I like the idea so much.  I just love the idea of the undead who must feed on the living to survive and turn into bats.  Bats are amazing, I love the way their wings look and the way they zip about in the dark. 

So, after the Mantis motif, I would go with Bats and Vampires.  There are several in the history of both Kamen Rider and Super Sentai including:

The original Bat Kaijin from the second episode of 1971′s Kamen Rider:

He can bite people and turn them into artificial vampires.  The only cure is in the claw on his wing.  Kamen Rider ends up ripping off his wing to take the claw and then kicking the one-winged Bat Kaijin off a skyscraper to a bloody end.  

It was even worse for him in the manga!

Over on the Super Sentai side of things, we had Evolved Bat from 1983′s Kagaku Sentai Dynaman:

Dracula Monster from Battle Fever J:

And even the real Dracula himself in Shuriken Sentai Ninninger!

Back over on the Kamen Rider side of things we had the Vampire Bat Beastman from Kamen Rider Amazon (1974): 

The totally creepy Bat Kaijin from 1993′s Kamen Rider ZO:

And an entire episode of Kamen Rider Black RX where an alien vampire created a plague of undead roaming the streets of Tokyo!

But my all time favorite vampire villain(s) in the history of tokusatsu are Nai and Mea/Vancuria from Mahou Sentai Magiranger.

Two gothic lolita vampire girls who are actually the split form of the queen of the vampires, Vancuria:

She grew bored with being alone for centuries on end so she split herself into two beings to always have companionship.  Her two selves have similar personalities though Nai is the more dominant with Mea constantly repeating the last word or two her other half says or even finishing her sentences for her.

At one point they even form a rock band called Bloody Friday Nightmare to lure mortals in and then turn them into vampires with the intent of eventually making them all walk out into the sun to die.

Evil can come in many shapes and sizes, some of them adorable!

Thanks for the question!
