VIDEO: The History of Super Sentai and the Power Rangers

"It's Henshin Time!"

The wild and crazy guys at ToyBountyHunters have released the latest chapter in their ambitious fan-documentary tracing the roots and charting the history of the colorful spandex-clad heroes of Japan’s Super Sentai / Power Rangers productions. While possibly a bit ropey with the tech polish and pronunciations, these videos do a good job of revealing behind the scenes info and illuminating the personalities (ala creator Shotaro Ishinomori) who helped make tokusatsu into one of Japan’s finest pop culture exports. The first video was released earlier this year, while part two is still minty fresh from earlier this week. Enjoy below!
