So, just as a kind of thought experiment (and yes, I know this isn't directly /tg/ related, but you're the only relevant board that isn't full of morons and if you're really interested, I'm about to run Tokyo Heroes soon) - how would you go about "modernizing" the Sentai genre? I'm not necessarily talking about making it "darker" or "more mature" (way too many people think that's the only way to make a genre "relevant again"), I'm just talking about ways of tweaking the formula so that the result would still clearly be "sentai", but a bit more palatable to the modern roleplayer without having to enter full manchild mode (and let's face it, no matter how much we all like power rangers, an attempt to imitate the show as it is between roleplayers is bound to devolve into a very low-brow parody very soon).

Everything that Tokumei Sentai Gobusters did up until episode 20, and then everything up until episode 30 that was largely unrelated to the impending forced rescript/reboot that occurred at episode 30.

Sure, the emphasis could have been shifted a little, but everything was there. Generally speaking, the good guys have plenty of support, and finding the bad guys is like finding a needle in a haystack, only possible through some monitoring technology that has horrific implications for privacy of citizens.The bad guys sometimes contract regular innocent people who are just trying to get by, but ultimately money is worthless if they win anyway.

Sure, the bad guys may have an inexorable cause of lovecraftian proportions behind them, but they are also just people, and their greatest defense against the sword of justice is being too small to hit, not too large to be harmed. The weakness they share with heroes is that they are people, and can be goaded into making choices that are less than optimal for them because of their feelings.

Also pretty much every bad dude and monster of the week was stylish as fuuuuuuuuuuuuck

>> No.32081147

>>>/m/, though to be fair they're as likely to ignore you cause the question's got some unfortunate implications.


Anyway, I'd focus more heavily on in-group dynamics beyond "Leader inspires everyone" and attempt to make the characters somewhat more individualized beyond their colour archetype.

I know that's kind of vague, but really, you would need to look at each element piece by piece because Sentai has literally existed for generations.

I'd also take a long, hard look at the likes of the secondary demographics and examine how much/little I'd want to gear my product towards their tastes.

Can't believe Saban aren't directly adapting this. I guess the world still isn't post 9/11 enough yet. Or maybe too much? Fuck I dunno.

Like, Enter pretty clearly operates like an actual extremist terrorist apart from being smarter, cooler, and more competent in just about every way.

>> No.32081411

You could do what PR has already done (never watched Super Sentai) with multiple teams: the team is an extension of a larger organization, and the emphasis is less on being a superhero and more on something else, and their activities just involve superheroics. Time Force were just one team of many teams of cops, SPD were basically beat cops who got promoted to a SWAT team, Lightspeed Rescue were emergency personnel working for the gov't, RPM were Special Forces in an army in the last human city on Earth, Ninja Storm and Jungle Fury both came from large schools of fighters. I'm not averse to more independent teams, it's just what you seem to want.

I won't rehash it because I've posted it many times before, but I made up a PR plot where the UN is making their own team to combat a new threat and is taking volunteers - but not from UN forces, because their project advisor who is the reformed Zedd told them that the best teams always have random people from the general population.

This. The great thing about RPM was that while it took itself seriously, it still went full sentai.
You gotta go full sentai. Make them do the roll-call the first time, or at appropriately dramatic moments, like a season finale. Introduce elements common to episode plots, like faulty morphers forcing them to fight unmorphed.
Have someone sit in on a session, then reveal that they're the sixth ranger. You have, of course, been holding one-on-one sessions with the new player so that they're in the loop.

Man actual Sentai can't even pull that off, besides you can't "modernize" it because Sentai is a continuing thing not a fucking product of an era (outside of the evolution of effects technology and what is considered "attactive" in a main character)
If you have a color coded organized 3-5 man super hero team then it's going to be silly or played completely straight yet still humorous- there's no way to make it neither.
I suppose the closest you'll get to whatever you want though would probably be Go-Buster, but that series was boring as dicks.

Zordon is a transhuman AI remnant of a race who genetically altered small parts of the human race many thousands of years ago, Alpha 5 is obviously one of his fully-robotic assistants. Once a bunch of known criminals escape, they take a set of power-suits, the traditional garb of their ancient warriors (which were colorful for purely ceremonial purposes) and grant them to a group of humans who still possess the requisite genetic markers to use them. Unfortunately, an adult human mind is too mentally and emotionally resistant to adapt to the suit's functions, but they also need someone of sufficient age to be competent at fighting, so they get the oldest-looking teenagers they can find.

Magic and wizards could be made to be more like psionic stuff.

You can go more western sci-fi and remove the mystic origins of the sentai team. Depending on the group, that one detail can be whats needed to "modernise" it

But really, what makes Setai Shows goofy is a mix of being, "for kids" and having another societies humor. Most gritty stories will insert comic relief for cathartic purposes, to keep the story from overwhelming the viewer/reader with feels. So the wild/dramatic poses, godzilla homage-ing combat, and seemingly random assortment of mythologies are just a result of it being a Japanese invention, and subsequently us copying those tropes.

TL;DR It's seriousness level is going to hinge on how you present the setting to the players.

Amazing, is what it is.

Look, I know the car thing is a turn-off for a lot of us. The very idea of Turbo prevented me from getting back into the series until Jungle Fury, and I still had to watch Gekiranger to even peak my interest enough to return to PR. But RPM is incredible. The show is a season long homage to sci-fi movies, and gets a lot of distance out of gags regarding the techno-babble used to explain the goofier aspects of the show. One episode involves a Ranger turning his back on the baddies so they get blown up by the stock footage explosion that backdrops his morph. Give it a shot, I'm glad I did.

Depends on the head writer too though.

Turbo was garbage, but Dino Thunder was fun.
I'd stay away from the current stuff, but the adaptation for Kyouryuger next year is being done by an executive producer known for throwing the Japanese plot out the window.

Some times they bastardize the Super Sentai plot, some times badly like Samurai/SuperSamurai and sometimes well like SPD or Time Force. Other times they turn the show upside down and make an entirely new show out of it.
RPM is good at it, Jungle Fury does that well. Dino Thunder is fun if you liked MMPR. I do like Lost Galaxy after some time away from it.

You have a gathered team of individuals who are given a power-boosting transformation/suit, perhaps some special items/weapons, and usually are given access to large combat vehicles that are often capable of combining into a larger combat vehicle and/or robot. These people then must work together or learn top work together to defeat increasing threats.

Oh, that gives me an idea! All different types of gunslingers. Blue is a dual-wielding gun kata dude. Yellow packs a six-shooter with special bullets and a quick draw. Green is tacticool, and sports an assault rifle with all sorts of different attachments and firing modes. Red is the protagonist from a police procedural, the type that uses a semi-automatic and lots of cover. Pink is retardedly heavy weapons - rocket launchers, flame throwers, and other super overkill. And Black uses an archaic weapon, like a bow or a crossbow, and only shows up half way though the first season to mysteriously bail everyone out of the occasional bad situation and then slip back into the shadows.

Play down the zaniness, play up the seriousness. They don't have transformation sequences, they physically gear up, locker room and all. Some kind of military/law enforcement affiliation/sanctioning? Either way, they would be dealing with a villain arc heavily involved in serious mundane organized crime, possibly international.

What's funny is that more than a few Kamen Rider series that fit the more grim and serious tone that you're talking about. The problem is that you're mixing demographics.For the audience that PR is attracting (mostly boys 5-12), they want a simple show with lots of action, jokes and not a lot of plot so as to "keep their attention." Or so the execs say at least.

Grogs (or the older male audience that would be the equivalent to secondary audience of Sentai) on the other hand want the characters to be DEEP. Comedy and over the top shenanigans are not meant to be part of sprawling epics or their action games. These are also people who take themselves too seriously.

PR already has certain baggage to it that makes it difficult to rerepresent as something else. Sentai does too, but differences in media history and how comics and animation are portrayed give sentai (and Toku in general) more room to move about and hit mainstream targets.

>> No.32092952

Really? Cool. And then you could play all the character traits against each other. Yellow's very cowboy - motorcycle, leather jacket, cowboy hat, serious loner. Green's ex military, and would prefer if that 'ex' weren't there. Serious, determined, always on the job, even when off. Blue's a loose cannon, constantly getting bailed out of fights, investigating things in his off-time, with a vigilante streak a mile wide. Pink's a fucking psychopath, probably played slightly for laughs - a highschool girl with a sadistic/pyro streak, or something.

Black turns out to be defecting from the villain, who is themselves some kind of ancient evil who decided to make it big in organized crime and keep their real power under wraps for as long as possible as they build themselves an empire. Black has all kinds of sweet ninja skills to make up for his not-guns, including the only proper superhuman kung fu.

And Red is the generic protagonist cop glue that holds it all together.

It would end up being a police procedural most of the time, until the final third of the episode, when it goes half-Sentai. They gear up SWAT style with their unique loadouts - probably borderline cyberpunk - and have to work together to stop this week's magical threat. Suits of ancient, sentient, magical armor that takes over its wearer. A dealer of drugs that turn people into monsters who dips into his own stash. That kind of thing.

I think if you're going to make it "palatable for the modern roleplayer without having to enter full man-child mode", you have to change a good amount of the cliches and the classic formula. You have to make the enemies less cartoon evil and take out some of the more ridiculous battle patterns.

Enemies:
The mooks shouldn't be guys completely covered in black spandex with a weird mask or something, yipping like Jawas. They should be a force that can't be taken lightly. I think the perfect example of what I'm envisioning are the Shadowkhan from Jackie Chan Adventures. While not resilient, they are skilled fighters and can make even Jackie think twice about engaging them when they're in numbers. Maybe they're a little too strong for Sentai mooks, but they definitely have the feel I'd be looking for.

Yeah, exactly. And her 'zord' is a bubblegum pink police helicopter with short-range missiles and firebombs. She's in it for when some vampire cult-leader drains all of his cultists dry for a supercharge and she gets to disable all the safeties.

Let's see, I think that Yellow (cowboy) and Blue (gun kata loose cannon) would probably get along well, or at least have a similar law enforcement style. By the same token, Green (tacticool ex-military) and Red (protagonist police detective) would probably get along well because of each other's professionalism. Pink, on the other hand, is seen as dangerous, and Black is officially labeled a criminal vigilante for most of the series after his premiere.

Oh oh. I got it! Stop making Sentai and Rider so fucking stupid.

My brother is probably a full blown man child and trying to get me to watch the newest monster-of-the-week hero show. But I find their all so fucking BAD because they are literally just shit.

A team with a pirate base, groan, super powers based on fruits, fucking double groan? Sometimes the actual concept is really cool, but then the setting/show/comic/book/what have you is base in fucking school... and a lot of time monsters are attacking because of fucking school related.

Honestly I think the Sentai troop is FINE as is. If they just
- dropped the (other) retarded Eastern Troopes with plague series
- maybe not always be "Kids in high school"
- Have the villains make more sense
- Have the villains actually be competent
... it'd attract more "mature" audiences

The commanders should be more fleshed out than "I am here to cause mayhem and defeat you do-gooders for the evulz" *insert high pitch cackling* and after they beat him "to take my revenge". They should have their own motivations, maybe even their own ambitions. Heck, you could have one be a Starscream. And for fuck's sake, the ridiculous looking "alien" costumes where all they can do is flail their arms have to go. The spiky, revealing armor getup for the female commanders could be classed up a bit, but I'm not going to complain too much about tits.

Now, the stuff that needs to go: the stupid combination weapons that they use for the finishing blow that take forever for them to make. The only reason why they have these is to sell toys. There's no reason why a sentai team can't have a combination attack that doesn't take up two rounds to set up, just to go all overkill on the commander.

As an aside, I'd recommend that those people looking for something different in their toku watch Kamen Rider Kuuga, because:

- The hero isn't instantly an unbeatable fighter; he has to learn to use his various powers.
- The civilians aren't helpless; in fact, the police department runs the show and can (with some effort and a lot of stolen tech) serve as backup. Watching an ordinary police officer snipe the shit out of the MOTW is great.
- The monsters are pretty close to unknowable horrors, and figuring out just what they are and what they're up to is a pretty big part of the series. Think X-Files, kinda.

Remove the potential boyfriend. And the romance plot. Also she's trying to hunt down the serial killer because he killed her dad. How is it a romantic comedy? We use the same soundtrack all the other ones use. And she eats ice cream while she's sad at one point I guess."

I just recommended it because it's closest I know of to what certain people in the thread are looking for.

I'm aware that there's a spectrum of Kamen Rider shows (with Wizard on the far opposite end in terms of secondary character usefulness and actual tension (fuck Wizard)).

I keep getting a connection error for this; hopefully it'll go through this time.

The Bulk and Skull that appear in Samurai appear to have no knowledge of the Power Rangers, which they have fought beside (as of Zeo), know of personally (as of in Space), and have worked directly with (as of Wild Force). Skull does appear in the finale of Samurai as well.

RPM does make a minor appearance in Samurai as a parallel reality. Samurai cameos in Super Megaforce, where the appearance of Jungle Fury is possibly a spirit projection.

Again, mostly because the Current/Previous Executive Producer hates the Disney era and wishes Jungle Fury and RPM never happened.

It's possible to infer that the Earth in SPD, which has made limited positive alien contact before Turbo, is different than the Earth as it appears in Samurai/Megaforce.

Well the Earth in SPD is the same Earth in Time Force, since SPD Blue's father was a/the Red Time Force Ranger. Perhaps SPD grew a time-traveling arm in 975 years.

Hey, if they made a crossover for the next season that didn't happen, it could have been resolved.

Or if they went with Amit Bhaumik's proposed adaptation of Go-Buster.

Umm... they seem to be 8 year olds, in the bodies of 18-20 year olds, who have no memories of being more than 8. Riding around on a magic rainbow train.

Then there's Gaim, where the seasonal theme is about them being late teens trying to define what growing up is about. It's worse out of the gate because you don't get to the Umbrella/Mercenary plotline for about thirteen episodes, and until then it's a show about magical fruit samurai, and street dancing teenagers.

Not that I don't like Gaim or ToQGer, but the covers look super silly from the outside.

Why wouldn't the space police also have a time police branch? Space Patrol Delta implies a Space Patrol Gamma and so on.

The way I figure it works is that Lost Galaxy is built on the alien warship left on Earth at the end of in Space, Light Speed is built around the wreckage of the Turbo Zords left on earth. Light Speed becomes SPD which becomes Time Force.

On the side Billy, who designed the Turbo powers, dropped the information on the internet in some form, which is where you get Ninja Storm, Dino Thunder, Overdrive, and Jungle Fury. To get the system to work they need a power supply and contacts with other people who know.

Then you have magic. Wild Force and Mystic Force are both magical warriors that are using the 'Morphing Grid' to get people that don't know how their powers work to combat capable as fast as possible. (This also applies to Jungle Fury)

Dr. K finishes the work on the Venjix AI from Forever Red, weaponizes it during Jungle Fury. Everything goes to hell, aliens show up to help repair things. By 2015 10-15% of earth is alien populated like in SPD.

I wanted to do this with my own rework of sentai: roughly, the old five man team retired to found a sentai organisation after Yellow, the spiritual core of the group died in less than ideal circumstances. So, you have the veterans all broken by that event in some way trying to make good on their legacy by training anyone who passes the entrance qualification test and wants to join into a group that's larger, better-funded and benefits from the experience of veterans, while the sixth ranger goes rogue and hunts down the baddies in his own way, relying on the life-draining tech of this Black Brigade to supplement dwindling ranger powers.

That's the kicker as well, the Sentai Corps relies on numbers training and gear more than their powers since the power of the original five is being split to cover a whole company of rangers and multiple undersized megazords and the modular vehicles that form them.

I'd planned for the main characters/PCs to be teenagers and young adults that had passed the aptitude test, but chose to follow another path of greater interest until the Black Brigade makes the big reveal by sabotaging the Sentai Corps with the double agents they'd recruited from the Corps' less ethical members over the years of peacetime.

Look at those teams though.

Cam (Ninja Storm) put together the morphers in that season based on contacts he had met over the internet, and his understanding of... I can't remember, was it called ninjetti in Ninja Storm too? Because it clearly is.

Haley (Dino Thunder) put together the morphers based on Tommy's understanding of the Dino Gems, and her contacts with a few people online.

Andrew Hartford (Overdrive) threw a bag of money at an undefined contact and ended up with bootleg copies of SPD/Lightspeed tech.

RJ (Jungle Fury) worked alongside a techie (Possibly Haley) developing morpher technology. I'm not saying that he traded a bag of weed for some morphers, I'm just heavily implying it.
