    I’m already sold. I enjoyed Shinkenger and I’m really looking forward to this.

    Trying to capture lighting in a bottle a second time usually means the show is doomed from the start.

    Kyoryuger has proven unable to bring Sentai back out of the deep ratings slump that began during Go-Busters?

    I thought Kyoryuger was so popular?

    “Despite its high toy sales, Kyoryuger has proven unable to bring Sentai back out of the deep ratings slump that began during Go-Busters”

    Just gonna leave this link here to let people know that it isn’t go-busters fault, but instead that ratings have been falling pretty much sense gaoranger.

    Since super sentai series as been running nonstop since battle fever j with no breaks, ratings are not going to go at it’s peak much anymore,

    Ratings shouldnt even be much of an issue anymore no matter how hard they try, what is important now are the high toy sales for bandai and the kids target demographic ratings only (Sentai and rider are toy commericals to promote selling toys to kids)

    Reason why shinkenger had general ratings trend was that the motif was samurai, samurai are japanese cultural pride and is a intergal part of japan tradition, culture and media which makes the audience for shinkenger broader for all ages . (as for kamen rider decade it was the 10th heisei rider anniversary series, about a rider going into remade past heisei and some showa rider worlds, and decade was part of the super hero time block with shinkenger and then the first half of W ( a new start for heisei rider) after decade ended.

    Guess tokkyuger is gonna try to recapture den-o and mix it in with shinkenger as seems it’s gonna try to capitlize on shinkenger popluarity and the trains motif from kamen rider deno which captialized on the popluarity of japans bullet trains

    Doubt that tokkyuger’s gonna get sentai back in ratings anymore but would do well in toy sales

    the only way to go in ratings would be, maybe 2015 TOEI should do a another ninja sentai series in a shinkenger style so that it’s culturally appealing to japan like samurai motif was .
