The original Power Rangers Lost Galaxy hits North America next year


Gan, Gan, Gi, Gin, Gingaman!

For a good while, my body has adapted to the underworld’s sub-zero temperatures. During Comic-Con ’17, Shout! Factory confirms this climate change as they reveal their plans to release Power Rangers Lost Galaxy’s source material,Seijuu Sentai Gingaman, on DVD.

Honestly, I was surprised about this news since it felt weird for them to commence this plan before seeing how Power Rangers in Space’s original counterpart,Denji Sentai Megaranger,does in North America. My guess is that their Super Sentaistreams on their Website, Tubi TV, and Amazon Prime U.K. played a role in theirdecision to commit to this release.

Of course,Gingamanisn’t set in a space station, and it takes a different route from its Americanizedadaptation. Instead, the heroes utilizeEarth’s energy to protect the planet from space pirates and other evil groups. Based on its themes, the show’s assortment of villains could keep things interesting. Then you have Norio Wakamoto (Dragon Ball Z’s Cell, theGuilty Gear series’ Johnny) as the program’s narrator, which might be effective in pulling people in.

While the series doesn’t have a release date, it launches in North America next year. If Shout! Factory’sSentaistuff continues to do well, I’m still hoping for them topick up the installments that weren’t adapted intoPower Rangers. For now, I’m satisfied with living on a planet where hell continues to be frozen.
