BATCH TORRENT (Ep 1 has been updated to fix a small line. Please help seed!)
We all wrote down our thoughts and feeling about the show. Please check it out!
HUGE WALL OF TEXT AFTER THE CUT!
So this is it. The final episode. 50 episodes of buildup all coming to an end. I don’t really know what to say to be honest. I don’t think I can even do this episode justice because it’s just so great. Morishita Tetsuo goes above and beyond as Dr. Hinelar to the point where I’d accept an entire movie of nothing but him talking about how foolish humans are. He’s earned his spot next to Bandora on my list of favorite villains. Really, the entire cast does an excellent job. Even the background characters! Erina, the random classmate who showed in the second half of the series, does an excellent job in this episode. I really wish she showed up sooner. Actually, I wish there were more episodes because I don’t want this show to end. For the past 3 years this show has been a part of my life. There were times were the first thought in my head as soon as I woke up was this show. It’s almost become an obsession. I started this project alone, but I’m incredibly grateful that I didn’t end it alone. I really have to thank Alkaid for helping me with the scrubs, and sticking with me through the subs. Kou, and Lynx thanks for the translation and the good conversations. Without you two we’d never be at this point. Here’s to the future! Lastly, I wanna thank the random internet peoples out there. The ones who watched every episode so far, scrub or sub. You guys kept me going whether I wanted to or not. And to those who are about to start episode 1, have fun! I hope you enjoy the ride.
Every good thing must come to end, whether we like it or not. But someday, in the future, if we’re lucky, we’ll get to see the kids of Moroboshi High again. Maybe in some far off VS movie we’ll hear the words “Install! Megaranger!” once more. But until then we’ll keep moving forward.
When someone asks me what my favorite Sentai shows are three shows pop into my head: Zyuranger, Megaranger, and Goseiger. We’ve completed two of those, so let’s go and complete the third.
We’ve reached the end of the road here today. We leave the staff of INET, the surrogate family of Nezirezia, the friends, family and classmates of the Megarangers and the Megarangers themselves; Kenta, Kouchirou, Shun, Chisato, Miku and Yuusaku. It’s been an amazing journey and one I’m glad I got to be apart of. We saw 5 high-school students and 1 semi-lazy engineer grow from students and mentor to fully-fledged protectors of the planet Earth.
Megaranger was a show that could make you laugh one minute and cry the next. It made you feel that their robots were more than just pieces of programming and metal and were instead, the 7th members of the Megaranger team. INET was also, a great support system for the Megarangers. Kubota especially, but everyone in INET fully gave their all to aid the Megarangers, even putting themselves in harm’s way to protect them. Kubota led the charge to protect them and was, without a doubt, the Megarangers strongest supporter.
It was, of course, Nezirezia who kept the Megarangers on guard all this time but they too, in their own way, were a tight-knit group determined to win at all costs. No matter your opinion of them, they were, at the very least, an interesting group to challenge Megaranger.
So, before this goes any longer, I wanted to look back at my original thoughts on Megaranger. I came in for one reason; (or two) to help MegaAnon release a great show and to work on a show that has of my favorite seiyuu in it. I’ve completed Megaranger knowing that I not only helped release a great show but that I too grew to love the entire cast within it as well.
To that end, I must thank Kou and Lynxara for working on and helping to polish a wonderful script from a scrub to the finished release you see before you. And to MegaAnon, my dear friend, I thank you for allowing me to go on this journey with you. It’s been a long time coming, but Megaranger is finally finished and it’s all due to you finding a team to bring it to everyone.
Everyone reading this, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did working on it.
Megaranger is a solid Sentai with a great supporting cast (Kubota #1), my favorite lady rangers in all the Sentai I’ve seen so far, and regularly fantastic mecha action. It was a privilege to get to work on Takatera Shigenori’s second Sentai series, and the one that ushered the franchise into the morning timeslot where it remains to this day. My thanks to MegaAnon for having me on, and to Alkaid and Lynxara for all they’ve done for the project.
I laid out my feelings on Megaranger at the beginning of this project, and those hold true. To be honest, my job in Megaranger largely consisted of providing ideas and moral support, and… well, being happy when there was more subbed Megaranger? The actual meat of the work was done by the other three staff members, and they deserve 99% of your thanks. For me, this was interesting journey where I got to see a show I had always liked on a big picture level finally have concrete words put to the familiar images. I’ll leave you all with a final thought: I always liked Fourze because it reminded me of Megaranger, but only now do I realize that the similarity between the two shows is much more than skin deep.
