Before it was known as Power Rangers Zeo it was Cho-Riki Sentai OhRanger, a series designed to pay homage to old military shows and featured every series head writer for the previous Super Sentai seasons as contributors to the scripts of OhRanger. Sadly, the Aum Shinrikyo terrorist cult attacked the Japanese subway system, releasing tear gas that killed 15 individuals and injured another 30. Their leader’s thoughts closely aligned to what OhRanger‘s story line was intended to be (an ancient civilization giving super powers to people of today) and the show’s direction was scrapped and the series re-written, becoming one of the least successful and least popular Super Sentai shows of its time.
But thanks to Millionfold Curiosity FanSubs, and the ever popular translator MegaAnon, the series Cho-Riki Sentai OhRanger is now being subtitled and released to fans around the world. This is an incredibly excellent chance to catch a series that, as far as I know, was either never subtitled in its entirety or was long ago and has since been lost (or it was just a bad sub/bad quality video).
