I’m not going to lie: I never ‘got’ the Power Rangers. American kids, dressing up and doing what the Asian film and TV live-action anime shows had been doing for years? Seemed a bit fake and manufactured to me. And I was the target audience, too: loved my japanimation growing up and was the right age, too.
