I’m glad to say my favorite tokusatsu series of 2009 hits close to home – Power Rangers RPM. Undoubtedly the best Power Rangers series in recent years, Power Rangers RPM is sadly the final entry in the 16-year-old franchise for the foreseeable future. Disney is giving Power Rangers a break, beginning with re-airing the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series in its place. Remarkably enough, RPM ended its run on the last Saturday of the year and decade, as well as on the 700th episode of the franchise.
I found these YouTube videos on 4chan’s /m/ board the other day. They’re two parts of a making-of video for Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders Vs. DaiShocker. If you want to watch, I want to warn you that you may get spoiled, just as every pre-release marketing may do. Still, you get to see some neat Showa vs. Heisei fights and Riders from all ages just beating down Shocker grunts.
