Shout Factory to Release "Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger" Uncut on DVD in English

Today at the San-Diego Comic-Con, Shout Factory announced that they, for the first time ever, will be releasing original Japanese episodes of Super Sentai (which has been adapted into Power Rangers for the past 20+ years) on uncut, subtitled DVDs. The first season: Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, the show originally adapted into the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

It will be released under the name Super Sentai Zyuranger.

Indeed. I'd give all the money to see Sentai seasons like Timeranger and Dekaranger released. However, the one franchise I'm hoping gets a new lease on life in the US from this is Kamen Rider. The franchise has been treated horribly in the US, with only a small handful of official releases. To wit, and in order...

Kamen Rider V3 (subtitled broadcast in Hawaii in the 70s, got a very limited DVD release)
The Sega CD game Masked Rider ZO (heavily edited game version of the Kamen Rider ZO film)
Saban's Masked Rider (awful bastardization of Kamen Rider Black RX, which wasn't even the best KR series to begin with)
Masked Rider: The First (uncut subbed film)
Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight (respectible adaptation of Kamen Rider Ryuki, bombed in ratings in the US)

See, the only uncut releases were a sequel to the original series (aired without context) and a movie remake of the manga version of the first season. Everything else, good or bad, has been edited, adapted and chopped-up for "US consumption", largely without respect for the original. Kamen Rider has had a number of amazing seasons (examples: the original, Black, Kuuga, Faiz and the currently-airing Gaim) with fantastic stories and brilliant characters, and yet so few of them have been released in English. If Zyuranger's release does well (and considering the rabid nature of the Power Rangers, Super Sentai and tokusatsu fanbases as a whole, it probably will), I'm hoping that it opens up the opportunity for Kamen Rider to finally get its proper dues in the English-speaking world.
