metal hero resurrection?

Hiroshi Watari Sharivan/Spielban/Boomer also in an interview said Gavan would be the only metal hero starring in Gokaiger Vs Gavan...

Down memory lane indeed though...

I would not think they'd touch SS since it would piss Saban off. No SS

Only reason Saban got back into Power Rangers was because he was pissed off at what Disney did with their MMPR revision

He could care less honestly about the general product as long as people don't tamper with what's his

ORLY?!!

Tell em I said REDUCE THE PRICE OF YOUR DVDS!!!

Toei needs to avoid DVD in general at this point. It's out dated and releasing classic shows on an almost defunct format is pointless, go the route of High Def, charge an extra $10 per release and blamo. Totally worth it when the quality gives you a hard on.

Whats next, Sentai 199 special edition on VHS?.

A lot more people own DVD players than they do Blu-Ray

They should finish releasing the DVD ones , not have one foot in each. HD doesn't make a difference and in fact seeing Star Wars in HD, I'm afraid for Sentai. They need to give them the Godzilla treatment and remove all the strings and such.

Exactly. In a recession , going to a more expensive format would isolate many customers and besides , they need to finish releasing the ones they haven't yet.

I want more Metal Hero, but to cancel Sentai? Why can't they just adapt Power Rangers into Sentai or dub it and give us the full reign to making the series cheaply. Get PLEX and some designers and bam! , you could run Power Rangers and have Sentai be the adaptation unless they want to dub it. Wouldn't that be a twist?

If they do do another Metal Hero, phase Kamen Rider off or combine them and call it the Metal Rider franchise?

Is there any reason Metal Hero couldn't just come back for a few movies rather than shelve Rider or Sentai? Now that Toei seems to want to keep doing big crossovers anyway ...

I hope they don't come back and replace Super Sentai. Sentai holds a place in many people so it shouldn't just go away. It would be cool for Metal Hero to come back and have their own timeslot and movies. That, I wouldn't mind seeing. Let's see how the Gokaiger/Gavin movie goes. I'm hoping for the best and for Super Sentai to live on.

But Blu-ray is the next step and what's going to be used for the years to come. DVD is out dated and just garbage compared to Blu-ray. Having these shows released on DVD now at this point is like releasing them on VHS when DVD was in it's prime, it's pointless now.

HD doesn't make a difference?. This a joke right?. The Star Wars Blu-ray release (better than the HDTV version) was incredible and easily one of the best transfers in Blu-ray history.

You are afraid for Sentai?, the Sentai Movie collection Box set is out on Blu and looks incredible. DVD is out dated and just VHS on disc. Do yourself the favour and upgrade, spend that $5 which you seem to think is a massive jump in price and you'll be thankful for it in the end.

The remaining shows Toei needs to release should be done in Combo packs which include the Blu's and DVD's so the fans that shelled out the money for the already released DVD's don't get fucked over. Toei botched this entire thing by waiting this long to release these classic shows either way.

Exactly. In a recession , going to a more expensive format would isolate many customers and besides , they need to finish releasing the ones they haven't yet.

Bullshit. I love how the recession excuse is always thrown in there as a cop out on upgrading to Blu-ray. Blu-rays generally cost $4-5 more than a DVD, what is the fucking deal with $5?. If you cannot afford $5 then buying movies are the least of your worries.

Plus Blu-ray companies are now making combo packs for cheap which include the DVD in it, so you can start building up the Blu-ray collection and I've seen incredible titles in the Blu-ray bin for CHEAPER than the latest DVD released.

You realize the Combo packs exist because Blu-ray sales aren't so hot right? Then again you made the claim that a DVD is just VHS quality on a disc, so you've pretty much shown that you don't know what you're talking about.

I think most the people wanting to say Sentai (or Rider) would be cancelled for Metal Heroes just don't like Sentai (or Rider) and don't care that Toei is capable of doing more than 2 things at a time.

Of course I don't know what I am talking about. I only have a thick VHS, Beta, DVD, Lazerdisc, HDDVD, and Blu-ray collection. What do I know, right?.

DVD quality is ass. That's the bottom line.

You're preaching to the choir

VHS survived and was popular in many markets until 2006

So with that in mind, DVD is going to be around for a good LONG while

But if you want to buy Blu-Ray and enjoy superior sound and quality, then by all means, go ahead

Don't let any of us stop you :thumbs:

Sorry for this being my first post but :

What Forever Knight is saying is actually true, well, a sort of half truth anyway. The main advantage and disadvantage is it's analog, analog means you need really good equipment to record high quality videos (Loss of signal ends up as lost video quality as well.) but it's main advantage is since it's not digital, there will be no compression artifacts and even on a RAW video data, the VHS quality will still be superior,the last "upgrade" on it's standard makes it possible to store real 480p video on it as well.

I'm actually for about three years lurking in Henshin Justice now but I just registered to reply to his very post... >.<

I don't do sense
Making theories about what tapes can do is completely pointless because consumer-level VHS during the peak of their use were bad, really bad and couldn't compare to the DVD of today.

A lot of shows simply do not exist in HD. You can't put Kamen Rider Kuuga on Blu-ray, there is no HD master. You can't put Megaranger on Blu-ray, there is no HD master.

Many people don't see the point in HD. The price is off-putting and there is no Blu-ray rental market in Japan and as we all know, rentals are everything in that country.

Your suggestion to "just rise the price by ten bucks" makes me doubt you ever buy stuff yourself, because retail media prices in Japan are already pushing it as they are.

There is no doubt that higher resolution in ideal case is better than a lower one. But there is a difference between "sufficient quality" and "DVD is ass. Period." Especially in comparison to VHS and Laserdisc. Oh, and laserdisc is written with an s, if you really had one you'd know it.

Toei botched this entire thing by waiting this long to release these classic shows either way.
Well yeah because releasing a 10000 yen volume every month for years since early 00s simply doesn't count. You don't seem to comprehend how huge Toei's library really is. They are only finishing now because it took that long!
