Kamen Rider Snipe Episode Zero Announced

In the official listing for the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Blu-Ray Collection 2 set on Amazon it reveals that it will include an exclusive episode. This exclusive episode will focus on Kamen Rider Snipe, in a side story titled "Kamen Rider Snipe Episode 0".

There are a lot of movie fans out there who aren't particularly excited about the Power Rangers. For those that didn't grow up with the series or those that were never fans of the classic tokusatsu programs much of the appeal is lost. Sure, the Power Rangers were incredibly popular but their grip on America only lasted for a few years compared to the cultural icons they are in Japan. In the U.S. their reign in entertainment was as much about action figures as it was about shows and films. They weren't ingrained into society like the Marvel superheroes who had backgrounds in comics and 50 plus years of history before hitting it big with the movies. But it's exactly because of franchises like the Marvel Cinematic Universe that Power Rangers has a chance to succeed. One way of thinking o...
