Do you know why some sentai shows get a 10 years later movie and others don't? Is it based on the availability of the actors?
I have a feeling that is a pretty big part of it. Some actors either retire from acting, move on to other things or don’t want to go back to their beginnings or they have become too big for a small production to afford.
I also have a feeling it might be based on how well a show did. I really wonder if we will get more 10 years after movies for shows like Tensou Sentai Goseiger or Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
I would also add that some series seem to be SO Popular they get not only a 10 Years After Special but also follow ups and crossovers such as Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger getting to be a massive part of the new Space Squad movie!
For the record, there are shows I would -love- to see a 10 Years Later special for. I mean, yeah, we’ve seen what Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger is up to 5 years later and I have a feeling they’ll be back in another five for the next Anniversary.
However, I would love to see a joke version of a 10 Years Later special for Hikounin Sentai Akibaranger!
