Zyuranger's English DVD cover art features too much blue


In which Tricera Ranger steals the show

It's been a good while since Shout! Factory announced their plan to release Zyuranger on DVD, and the company has revealed an image of the show's cover art. Based on the design, the cover doesn't look too bad-- even if the color blue dominates the image. Considering that the show's title screen and eye-catchers were mostly blue, the designers were able to pick a color that matched the series' design. Also, I found it neat that they added the caption "Before Power Rangers there was..." to the top of the piece, since it shows that the Sentai franchise has been around for a long time.

Even though Shout! Factory's releasing the show as Super Sentai: Zyuranger, the company plans to retain the series' original title in the subtitles. In other words, you'll still get to read the Kyoryu Sentai part of the title on screen. As for the reasoning behind the name change, the company's Blu-ray/DVD Director, Brian Ward, believed that the show would get better recognition from fans in the U.S. Either way, this doesn't affect my desire to own Shout! Factory's Zyuranger release, as the set contains the entire series.

Lastly, if Zyuranger does well, then Shout! Factory might release Dairanger, the Sentai series where the White Ranger, Thunder Zords, and most of Zedd's monsters originally came from, down the road. As we wait for an announcement that reveals the box set's release date, you can check out the cover art in the gallery below. On that note, what are your thoughts on Shout! Factory's Zyuranger DVD design?
