Captain America and why Super Sentai is /co/ related

So, ever since the debut of Kaizoku Sentai Goukaiger and Saban reacquiring the rights to Power Rangers and porting Samurai Sentai Shinkenger as Power Rangers Sentai .

Now, a certain American imageboard of a larger site of ill repute has been particularly butt-frustrated about everyone’s gusto about showing info about both series. Now, as some (READ: none) of you know, there are a few things that have honourary status on /co/. Power Rangers is one of those things. Most people, in a ridiculous attempt of nerd hierarchy, try to distance themselves from anything Eastern, deeming it “stupid”, and “for weeaboos”. Now, one of the most quoted phrases on /co/ is “not /co/ related”.

Fine, you don’t think Super Sentai’s /co/-related? Let’s take a trip back to 1978.

Toei gets a license to make live action shows based on Marvel characters, the first one that they decide to do is Spider-Man, renamed as Supaida-Man.

Now, there was on thing that Supaider-man did that no other Tokusatsu show had done at the time…



Now, this leads to Toei wanting to place a giant robot in their Captain American and the Avengers show. However, they didn’t get around to making a Captain America and the Avengers  show; they took the concept of an international Superhero team that pilots a giant robot to fight crime. Now, to make it Japanese, they meshed it together with a series that they had only 2 entries for.

That series was Senta, consisting of:

Himitsu Sentai Goranger

And J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai

Now, Marvel and Toei combine Avengers, Cap, and Sentai and gave birth to the few Sentai show to be called Super Sentai:


Therefore, Super Sentai is quite /co/ related.

Now go back to playing with your Ponies; me, your sister, and your cooler older brother are going to go watch a huge fucking Sentai War.
