Shout! Factory grabs Power Rangers Lost Galaxy's source material
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 Seiju Sentai Gingaman, the show that was adapted into Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, on DVD.
Honestly, I was surprised about this news since it felt weird for Shout! Factory to commence this plan before seeing how Denji Sentai Megaranger does in North America. My guess is that their streams of their previous Super Sentai titles on their Website, Tubi TV, and Amazon Prime U.K. played a role in their decision to commit to this release.
Of course, Gingaman isn't set in a space station, and it takes a different route from its Americanized adaptation. Instead, the heroes utilize Earth'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. Also, there are segments where the Rangers dress in cowboy-like attire and ride horses.
While the series doesn't have a release date, it hits North America next year. If Shout! Factory's Sentai stuff continues to do well, I'm still hoping for them to pick up the installments that weren't adapted into Power Rangers. For now, I'm satisfied with living on a planet where hell continues to be frozen.
