-Admission: I'm still not used to Deviantart's new look. It was just way easier to make a journal when the journal was front and center instead of just part of some "recent activities" stream that includes some sort of facebook/twitter-like chat in order to make it more for the cellphone generation. Now you have to use "submit" and get down to the journal section, which is more of a pain cause you may end up making a St.ash or a piece of art. I probably should readjust it so the journal is at the front of the page again but may need to work on editing the page widgets to do as such.
-Another personal admission: I think Halloween 2014 is a bomb. I thought the pirate concept would be a lot of fun and put a lot of effort as did the artist
...but it hasn't drummed up the excitement that the last couple have. I guess its because of all the more obscure girls I'm using this time, since the one that probably has had the most interest and activity is Sheri's...and she has had quite a bit lately and is probably one of my most notable girls (plus she's a werewolf...and werewolves always have lovers). I'm halfway through it and hope that someone gets some noteriety but I'm not betting on it anymore. Maybe I shouldn't have done a specific theme but...I guess that's just my own doubts. I still like doing my own thing but sometimes when it doesn't get the response I tend to second-guess myself.
-Just because I can, with Zyuranger coming along and Shout sounding like they probably may do Dairanger next, a quick thought on which Sentai probably could be brought over to the US:
*Gorenger: Maybe considering its the first but would have to be two different sets; it luckily has a perfect half-way point with Temujin's defeat and the switchover to Variccune if they need two sets.
*J.A.K.Q.: Probably not
*BFJ: Maybe if they can work some stuff out with Marvel for support...
*Denziman: Dunno if Marvel has a stake in it anymore but it is notable but not a headliner
*Sun Vulcan: Only if we get some more love of the earlier series
*Goggle V: Much, much later sad to say
*Dynaman: Yeah there was the parody dub which gives it credence...but that's it.
*Bioman: A good shot since that was probably a season they wanted in the US; but doesn't have the exposure.
*Changeman: Would love it since it is one of the best season but could turn people off with how weird it seems.
*Flashman: Another one that would work but doesn't have the recognition
*Maskman: Maybe...the martial arts is notable and it has value...I hate it but I would support it
*Liveman: Strong chance since many tend to put this as one of the best of the 80s...not me but many others
*Fiveman: Even more doubtful
*Jetman: If one pre-Zyu were to come over, the best bet this would be the first due to its noteriety with Inoue and its "maturity"
*Zyuranger: Its here
*Dairanger: If Zyu succeeds, it will come
*Kakuranger: If Zyu AND Dai succeeds, it will come (being the end of the PR sequence)
*Ohranger: Dunno; it is part of the PR sequence but it is a lot weirder
*Carranger: Take the above and add in "way crazier"; would love it if it did
*Megaranger: If the entire "PR sequence" is done; would be great on its own though cause its just that good
*Gingaman: Its beyond the PR sequence but has the Kobayashi name attached to it...perhaps
*GoGoFive: Another "perhaps" only if earlier series do well
*Timeranger: Has Kobayashi and was made to a respectable PR season; definitely could see this on its own if they don't go in order
*Gaoranger: Dunno; if they have Gao vs. SS without Liveman and J.A.K.Q. it may confuse a lot...it is interesting on its own though
*Hurricaneger: Entering into Disney territory here; heard weird things about the season so only if the above continued the line with this
*Abaranger: Arakawa probably doesn't have the same name recognition as Kobayashi; is respected and could be good on its own due to the dino thing though
*Dekaranger: See above; would love to see it since its great as a stand alone
*Magiranger: Another Disney season; many love it but the further from Zyu we go, the less that I dunno it can have that chance unless previous seasons succeed
*Boukenger: It is really different from Operation Overdrive but again: Disney season adaptation
*Gekiranger: If other succeed
*Go-Onger: This and RPM are night and day; RPM has massive fan support but of Go-Onger comes out, prepare for whiplash
*Shinkenger: Somehow if people got thier way I could see this as Sentai #4
after Zyu/Dai/Kaku due to being recent and probably Saban edging them to do it
*Goseiger: Would be fun but who knows
*Gokaiger: Another season that probably everyone wants here but with little context of what came before; could be nice on its own, but who knows
*Go-Busters: Would be great if Saban is skipping it but probably not the highest priority
*Kyoryuger: Priority due to dinos, but we'll see
*ToQger: Would be neat to have on a streaming site but not for DVD yet
*Ninninger....how did that get here?
