During their 2017 San Diego Comic-Con panel, Shout! Factory announced that Seijuu Sentai Gingaman, is coming to DVD in early 2018.
For those not in the know, Gingaman footage was used to create the seventh season in the Power Rangers franchise, Power Rangers Lost Galaxy. Unlike Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, Gingaman is a nature themed season that was later adapted to become the space fairing themed Power Rangers season.
No bonus features were announced although there is a teamup movie between Gingaman and Megaranger. So far, Shout! Factory hasn’t included any movies on their sets, so stay tuned to see if these movies will be included on the release.
Currently the series isn’t available to pre-order but stay tuned for that.
Gingaman will be a great watch for Power Rangers fans since it’s just so different from Lost Galaxy. You may have noticed while watching that Power Rangers season there was a lot of… odd elements. Why does Terra Venture have so many horses? How the hell were the Lights of Orion hidden on a space station? What was the deal with the Galactabeasts?
While watching Gingaman won’t exactly answer all of those questions you’ll at least get an idea of why certain elements were included in Lost Galaxy. Nothing quite like looking at a nature Sentai and going, “Yep, we’re going to do a story about a space colony with this footage!”
Power Rangers, Super Sentai, and Tokusatsu in general are wild.
