lol I wonder what Tetsu's actor will think when he finds out he is a ball of light in America.

An American adaptation of a Japanese series, then dubbed into Japanese and English subs.
Would that be definitely redundant?

It happens.

Anyway, this is exciting but a tad weird for me. Why wouldn't they pick up where they left off with Time Force?!? Oh well...I'll still check it out.

SPD ? Thats great to hear .... I see a Hero Club DVD release date as well ... that could potentially mean an eventual DVD Boxset release just like they did for Dragon Knight

SPD to Recieve Japanese Dub!

This is both equal parts entirely out of left field and awesome. According to this Press Release/Article from Toei, they're planning to air a Japanese dub of Power Rangers SPD in August as part of the Super Sentai anniversary on Toei Channel. So it's kind of similar to Kamen Rider Dragon Knight getting dubbed and released in Japan as a part of the Heisei Rider 10th Anniversary Project, though there were obviously other factors as well. In addition, much like some of the early Power Ranger dubs, the Dekaranger cast will be voicing some of their counterparts, including Tetsu Inada (Doggie Kruger), Ryuji Sainei (Ban), Ayumi Kinoshita (Jasmine) among others. Interestingly, Kat is going to be played by Rie Tanaka, with the original actor for Swan, Mako Ishino, instead doing the opening narration.

I'm not quite sure why they chose SPD over some of the other recent series, but it still looks promising. Not to mention this is the first Japanese dub since Lightspeed Rescue back in 2003, omitting Season 3 of MMPR and Zeo, of course, which were never dubbed, so this should prove interesting in terms of audience response.

And as a "taste", here's an overview of SPD from the 30th Anniversary Super Sentai Encyclopaedia DVD, narrated by Tetsu Inada himself:

Any thoughts?

I wonder how they're gonna react to sam being a ball of light as opposed to a real person. It'd be interesting if it got better ratings than SPD and deka.
