One of the keys to the Power Rangers series is the American version was able to slice the fight scenes from the original Japanese series. This saved on the production budget and time when they didn’t have to stage massive rubber suit fighting scenes. So in a sense fans of the show over the last three decades have seen the various Japanese incarnations. But it turns out they were holding back on Chōjin Sentai Jetmana. This was the season when the Rangers wore bird inspired helmets with beaks on the front. Now you can catch up on this time when Shout! Factory releases Power Rangers: Chōjin Sentai Jetman: The Complete Series on DVD in September. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:
